Part 156: Mission 38 (Rand) - Preplanned Showdown - Part 2: This golden mech thats Quattro of the AEUG, right?!
: I didnt expect to be pitted against the Grendizer !
: My apologies to Maria, but holding back against him would be fatal! I must keep my wits about me!
: Hes anticipating my attacks ?! Is this the strength of a Newtype!?
: You disappoint me, Marin I thought I could trust the anger you felt towards the Aldebaron.
: Where do you get off saying that after slaughtering all those aliens ?!
: Even if you were ordered to do that, Id never accept such people as allies!
: A golden MS Lt. Quattro!
: I truly regret that things ended like this but its not too late. Surrender peacefully.
: Youre better than this, Lt.! Do you actually believe Zafts methods are right?!
: The chairmans chosen the shortest course to end this war. The AEUGs simply helping make it so.
: Then well stick to our own course, even if it takes longer to get there!
Quattro vs. ZEUTH #1: Hesitating would simply be the end of me !
: Sorry, Lt., but if youre gunning for me, Imma have to turn that pretty mech of yours into some gold scrap!
: So says the short-sighted outlaw. I wont be delayed by such a man.
: Youre in for a world of hurt if you dont take me seriously! Ive got WAY more tricks than you can handle now!
: Im not the same as before it matters not that Im facing Lt. Quattro!
: Gainers movements are different hes improved this much?!
: No, theres more to it somethings driving him onwards?
Gainer has a line for Amuro, Quattro, Camille or Shinn: Zaft, AEUG and the Federation are all the same!
: Oi I never wanted to go up against this guy.
: We cant ignore you spreading chaos across the world any longer. Prepare yourself!
: And your plan is to remove, in the name of order, anything that doesnt fit in? Im gonna have to pass on that.
: This is my choice and Im sticking with it, even if it means fighting you!
Gain vs. ZEUTH #2: I know the scope of their skill but theyre still tough customers.
: A good friend and a terrifying enemy those words suit you to a t, Quattro.
: Id say the same of you, Kei.
: But I wont hold anything back I cant die just yet.
: Yeesh ! This could be real dicey!
Kei vs. ZEUTH #2: These are sad times having to fight old comrades !
: Wha-?! Hes seeing through all my tricks?!
: How naïve, Garrod Your instincts are fine, yes, but that alone wont win the day in battle.
: Damn, are all MS pilots with sunglasses like this?!
: Quattro, huh? Talk about a pain-in-the-ass enemy !
: Tell me, Holland. What is the Gekkostates truly after?
: Bite me! You army types are all the same!
: And I wont let a bunch like you get in our way!
: I guess theres no way around it... Ill have to disable your machine!
: Let's see you try! I haven't gone all-out like this in a long time!
Roberto and Apolly shot down:
: Theyre stronger than what we expected!
: Damn! To think theyre this troublesome as enemies !
: For you to choose such methods it appears I overestimated you.
: I also failed to notice your propensity for looking down on others, Lt. Quattro.
: But Ive decided to place my trust in these people! This is my truth and my reason for opposing you!
Roger vs. military types #1: I will not allow men who only adhere to orders to encroach upon my freedom!
: Th-that gold mechs the Hyaku Shiki Quattro!
: His styles unpolished but also uninhibited
: What a shame. Had you not lost your way, you couldve been a fine rider
: The AEUGs gold boss, eh? Your mechs gonna sell for a pretty penny once its scrapped!
: Even now, money-makings your sole interest ? Are you really this blind to reality?!
: Reality is all about surviving! But you dont even get that and just go about taking the lives of others youre the freaks here!
: Being at war doesnt mean anything goes!
Jiron vs. ZEUTH #2: How did things end like this?!
: Exactly what Id expect from a former Ace His techniques excellent!
: Ive to face Lt. Quatto? Im still too rusty to be able to stand up to him !
: Cpt. Jamil, none of us will gain anything by continuing this battle!
: We HAVE to keep going, though! Even a superpower cant simply remodel the world with its ego!
: Were up against that gold mech, which means its Quattro!
: If you know that, then I assume you understand how foolhardy itd be to fight me
: Pfeh ! I cant stand that high-and-mighty attitude of yours!
: But I'm always pumped up when I get to mess with some smug guy! Brace yourself, Lt. Shades!
Quattro shot down:
: Such power indeed, its dangerous to leave them at large!
: Even against Amuro, Im still king when it comes to dogfights!
: His maneuvers are completely uninhibited Is that what makes him so strong?
: Im always 100% on board with what I do best to worry about mistakes after its all over!
: That gullibility is exactly whats destabilizing the world! You need to see that!
: Time to fight a legendary Ace, eh? I cant afford to go easy on him!
: His style is rough but it is that which makes him dangerous ! I cant lower my guard!
: Whoa, youre giving me props? ...Lets do this, then, Amuro! This underdogs going for the gold!
Amuro has lines for both Garrod and Renton: There are many places where your childish logic wont fly! or I have to fight these inexperienced children ?!
: Hes reading us like a book! Is that Amuro?!
: Enough of this, Getter Robo! Your powers only making the world even more turbulent! Cant you see that?
: But using your power on Zafts say-so will bring about world peace?! I cant accept that!
: Our Getter exists for all of mankind! We wont let it be used just for the Plants!
: Even Amuros got a new unit?! Damn, theyre REALLY well off!
: There are a lot of gaps in his guard is he trying to fake me out?
: Very nice, Newtype. You saw right through me!
: Then, Ill just go for broke! Time to fight head-on, like always!
: I wont shy away from that come on!
This attack looks coooooool!
: The hell ?! Thats guy seein through my attacks?!
: A career soldier like me can easily anticipate your wild moves!
: Youre a big-shot ace alright not bad! But I really dont care for you acting so chill around me!
: Comeere! If youre reading my moves, then I just need to go even crazier!
: A machine built for aerial combat? It will not best the Spazers speed, though!
: But I still have the upper hand in mobility! Ill get in your blind spots and hit you directly!
: This pilots strength is on a wholly different level from everything Ive fought so far !
: Wait is that Amuro Ray, the Federations White Shooting Star?!
: Gainer, is this the goal of your Exodus?!
: Lt. Amuro
: Your freedom lets you live as you see fit but I wont allow it if, by doing so, youll sow chaos across the world!
: But all those things YOU did because of the war are OK?!
: I didnt think you were that kind of man, Amuro!
Katz shot down:
: Urgh! People like you people like you--!!
: To think Id have to fight you, Cpt. Jamil
: Ive been searching for the meaning of Newtypes all this time.
: And committing those misdeeds was your answer?!
: I havent found my answer yet ! However, I do know that society is being split in half and such a place is no home for us!
: So, we will fight for our lives and for the world!
: I had taken you as someone who fought with words. For you take such a path is
: But there are men with whom I cannot reach an understanding even after exhausting my vocabulary.
: I, too, will take suitable action when faced with such people.
: If you can fight this shamelessly then my path is clear! This will hurt a bit!
: So the Federations White Shooting Star is now Zafts White Shooting Star. Im afraid it doesnt sound as good, though.
: Were not fighting because of titles!
: Dont you see what the world needs right now? Or is it BECAUSE you dont that youre able to commit those crimes?!
: Theres something youre overlooking from atop your high horse: we all see the world from our own perspective!
: Thats when I understood: we have to put a stop to your self-righteous rampage!
: I-I have to fight Amuro ?!
: What I sense a third presence in the Nirvash along with Renton and Eureka
: Just what is that LFO ?
: He may not have technique but hes full of vigor! I cant underestimate him!
: Im also damn angry at you people for killing others over some orders!
: Such is war !
: I thought you were better than this, Amuro! In the end, youre just another of the militarys pet soldiers!
I skipped this animation by mistake but figured it was important enough to warrant a special disk playback. Actually underestimated Amuros damage potential and he shot Jiron down with a big crit
Hmm what would he do to come back from this?
: So, the Feds White Shooting Star has landed in Zafts camp!
: These people do as they wish, ignorant of their own strength like children!
: Well, if kissing the asses of the powerful is the adult way, then Ill take being a kid!
: And thats why you refuse to accept reality?!
: Blah, blah, blah! Weve come this far, so lets just end it!
: BUT, I do have my own pride on the line, so you aint getting one up on me!
Holland vs. ZEUTH #2: Doesnt matter who were fighting, we HAVE to do this!
Holland dodges: Sorry but I cant get dropped here!
: The difference between our units sizes is enormous ! Im done for if he gets a clean hit in!
: Damn it, I cant keep up! Hell eventually grind me down if this keeps going !
: Ive fought against the Feds and their MSs a bunch of times but hes a far bigger threat!
Emma and Amuro shot down:
: These people dont even see how strong they are
: Their strength is beyond what we expected! At this rate !
: Duke Fleed, Ive no problem with your wide-eyed speeches
: But words like those wont fly with the way the world is right now!
: And thats why youll unite humanity by force and eliminate all aliens?!
: Theres no other way! If you dont like that, lend us a hand and make it better!
Duke Fleed! You can't defend Earth by those means!
: Lets do this, Getter Robo! Time for a 3 vs. 3 fight!
: Stop, God Sigma! This isnt the time for us to fight! Think this through!
: I was just about to tell you the same damn thing!
: Your treating the world as a playground has only been making things worse for everyone!
God Sigma vs. Getter or Aquarion: Julie Toshiya! Be ready for them to switch forms on you!, Toshiya Grr! These guys are a huge pain as enemies!
: Three against three! Lets duke it out mano a mano!
: Get real! A sloppy team like yours doesnt stand a chance against us!
: What was that?!
: You lot just run wild across the world, while were all working together for one goal! Dont you dare bunch us all together!
Reika vs. ZEUTH:
- What an unfortunate reunion
- This sorrowful battle
is it my fault, too?
- If this cant be avoided, I wont hesitate !
: Stop, Marin! Why do we have to do this?! Were allies, arent we?!
: My allies are those whove fought and faced death alongside me in Earths name!
: Those whod slaughter aliens on command are no allies of mine!
: Damn it! You wanna fight us so much that youd resort to those ridiculous lies?!
: Youre not who I thought you were, Marin! If thats how its gonna be, then well hit you right back!
God Sigma vs. Baldios:
- Kiraken: Raita
! Were coming in for real this time!
- Kiraken: Sorry, Raita! But we aint pulling our punches!
- Marin: We cant stand down, even if it means fighting God Sigma!
- Marin: Im bringing you down, Toshiya Dan!
: Rand, wasnt Gunleon supposed to be a repair mech?!
: If youre using it as a tool to spread war, then Ive clearly misjudged you The Crusher!
: We had our reasons for doing what we did, too, Toshiya!
: But, since you threw that name in my face, I aint holding back anymore!
Oh, right what Jiron would do if he got shot down was pick up whatever else was available and jump back in!
: A man doesnt hesitate, even against a huge enemy!
: Ill admit that youve got guts but that doesn't change what you've done!
: Is that what a man does, Jiron?! Answer me!
: I ask you the same damn thing! It mightve been on orders but I wont let any of you walk away after all youve done!
I wanted an excuse to show the other Walker Machines again!
Also, God Sigma vs. ZEUTH #1: Were all enemies now ! Theres no choice but to fight !
: Tell me, Gainer: is that Exodus just sugarcoating for you having your way, screw everyone else?!
: At least I didnt care to become an army mook, shedding innocent blood!
: Youre all a bunch of blind troublemakers while were out there fighting for peace! Dont even think were on the same boat!
: Nothing outside your own little world matters to you so Ill have to force your eyes wide open!
God Sigma vs. ZEUTH #2: Wake up! Youre all being used!
: Pull back, Renton! You dont have to force yourself to fight!
: Im doing this because I want to for Eureka and for the world!
: Enough! All that destruction just to make a quick buck is that what youve been fighting for?!
: We did it just to survive, unlike you and your pointless killing!
God Sigma vs. ZEUTH #3: Julie Yesterdays ally is todays enemy its a harsh world we live in.
: Sorry, Toshiya but Im gonna hit you straight through the gaps in your shield!
: I know all about your gun-slinging, so I just have to get in your face before you start shooting!
: I wouldnt be called a Pro if I didnt end battles before they reached that point. Youre mine!
: I cant believe it you, too, joined up with that ZEUTH?!
: It mightve been fate at work - as is my opposing you.
: If youve anything to say for yourself, then lets hear it, Negotiator! If not, put up your dukes!
: Negotiation is impossible with those who are incapable of understanding. Therefore, Ill do this your way!
God Sigma vs. ZEUTH #4: Julie Sorry but Im not as sentimental as these two.
: It's that other combined mech! Come'ere, Ill take all three of you at once!
: I thought you were a reasonable man, Holland, but I was wrong!
: Youre just a delinquent who doesnt give a damn about the world and Im taking you down here and now!
Holland vs. ZEUTH #3: Yesterdays friend is todays enemy! Thats how it usually goes!
: The power of the Trinity Energy its certainly imposing when youre the one facing it!
: Cpt. Jamil, I thought you were a great man fighting the Feds while still sticking to your convictions
: But I was way off! Youre actually a criminal AND coward who teamed up with them!
: Youve been a real bad kid, Garrod! This has gone way past the point where we could just let you off easy!
: We only fought against people who jumped us, unlike you! Youve been making a mess of the entire world on Zafts say-so!
: Bull! We told you we never got any orders, you hear me?!
: Well, if you did it on your own, then I aint holding back! Time for you to pay for your backstabbing!
Garrod vs. Super Robots: Big doesnt mean strong! Here I go!
: You sure about this? Using the Trinity Energy, humanitys hope, as a tool of war?
: Were fighting evil with the God Sigma BECAUSE its our hope!
: And that makes people like you, who destroy just for your self-interest, our enemies!
: Fighting evil? What gives you the right to label people one way or the other?!
: Ill show you that there are plenty of folks who wont excuse what youve done!
I know your tricks like the back of my hand! What a shame, eh?
: We wont let you get away with this! Just you wait!
: What are you doing, Ryou?! For how long are you going to ignore your mission and keep with this merc act?!
: Were not fighting on anyones orders! Your group, though, is right in the armys pocket! Did you hesitate even a little when they told you to do those atrocities?!
: All weve done was to bring an end to the war! Weve no time to take things nice and easy like you!
: But Ill set you straight if youre intent on playing around all day!
: What would Fudou say if he saw you people now!
: We not fighting cuz of pops orders!
: We do it to wreck everything that pisses us off and everything were not OK with!
: That is to say, you act on impulse! No different than children picking fights!
: Ill beat you all into shape in Fudous stead!
Apollo vs. Kouji or Tetsuya: A Mazinger, eh? Yeah, Ill take you on!
: Jiron, your Walker Machine stands no chance against my Great!
: Was that how you drove off all those innocent folk? By flexing your mechs specs and the armys power?!
: Were fighting for the world! Cant you wrap your head around that?!
: For the world, my foot! Youve been bullying the weak and I wont lose to people like that!
This kills the Trad but at least we got to see its aerial missile attack!
: The opponents Gainer, huh? Lets find out whether those gamer skills have a use in actual combat!
: Were not fighting in a game; were in a real battlefield and people die out here!
: Do you know how much innocent blood was spilled because of your actions?!
: Were not fighting because we like it, either, but someone has to do it!
: So youre playing the "just following orders" card now?! People like you will never understand how harsh the REAL world is!
: What happened to that guy who vowed to get revenge against the Aldebaron, Marin?!
: Silence, Tetsuya! Im fighting alongside my friends in the name of Earth right now!
: Were a far cry from you lot and your one-sided justice!
: Well, thats a laugh! Youve got a big mouth for someone who just runs about like a headless chicken!
: Your ideals are far too naïve, Duke Fleed! You need a reality check!
: Trying to control all of humanity by force is not what Id call a realistic strategy, either!
: All thatll bring about is humans eventual destruction in a vicious cycle of hatred!
: Then we must unite humanity before that happens! And Ill make you fall in line, even if I have to put a leash around your neck!
: His combat style is expertly trained I cant find a weakness!
: My comrades and I have been fighting almost daily. Self-indulging wanderers like you stand no chance against me!
: Weve been constantly fighting, too - fighting to survive!
: I wont be defeated by someone whod belittle that!
: The enemys the Black Southern Cross I cant be negligent for even a second!
: Very nice, Tetsuya. But you shouldnt forget your pride if youre still considering yourself a Pro.
: Or did you all actually WANT to become one of Zafts attack dogs?!
: You may be the combat pro but Im the repair pro! Aint no way Im losing this one!
: Good to know. Then, you can fix your own mech after Greats done trashing it!
: Get real! Youre gonna foot the bill if you so much as scratch my Gunleon!
: You wont best my Great and I by fighting so casually!
Rand vs.ZEUTH #2: Aint no point in holding back when things are this bad! Dont blame me if anything happens!
: Hrm. Thats Tetsuya Tsurugi for you therere no gaps in his guard!
: Im a professional fighter! Dont even think a group of bandits like yours will be able to stand up to me!
: And does being a pro mean you follow any orders, no matter how downright wrong they are?!
: I aint giving in to people like that! Lemme show you MY fighting style!
: The Gekkostates leader hes certainly a worthy opponent!
: That loudmouth's up next, eh?! Well, I aint fallen enough that Id let one of the armys dogs get a bite on me!
: Ive no intention of lending an ear to the boasts of an outlaw!
: Youll feel in your bones the strength of Great Mazinger, Hero of the Skies!
: The enemys Kei Ill end this before he gets a chance to outsmart me with his mobility!
: He really doesnt look like someone who plays around in battle I better get serious or thisll really suck!
: Your easygoing debauchery ends today, Kei! Lets go!
: I may be easygoing but Im serious about staying alive! Youre not dropping me here!
: Out of my way, Renton, Eureka! Ive no time to waste on kids!
: I cant, Tetsuya! Were also part of the Gekkostate and of ZEUTH!
: I wont show any mercy if youre that willing to fight ! Are you still going for it, Renton?
: I told you! Were also part of the Gekkostate!
: Seems to me that you, too, have traded your honor for money!
: I take pride in my professionalism. Unlike you, who simply abide to commands with no regard to their morality like puppets.
: Well spoken, Negotiator! Unfortunately, Im not soft enough that your silver tongue would make me flinch!
Thats some incredibly low damage for Roger
Tetsuya shot down:
: Kch! We WILL put a stop to you when next we meet!
: Ive no personal grudge with you but I cannot overlook Zafts violence !
: Mr. Negotiator?! You started working as a merc too?!
: Please refrain from treating me as that sort of folk! Consider this as fair compensation for your insult!
: Come on, Kouji! I aint budging an inch, even against your Mazinger Z!
: Yeah, Rand? You wanna have to fix your mech that badly?!
: Well, lemme warn you that it's gonna take way more than a little repair job! Were really mad over here!
: Bring it! Once your mechs scrap, Ill sell that super-alloy to the junkmen!
Rand vs. ZEUTH #3: Theyre some old buddies so Ill make this real quick!
: I saw it all in the UN, Gainer! Was THAT your Exodus at work?!
: What are you talking about? And what about what you guys did?! Even if its war, there are some lines you dont cross!
: I cant trust any of you after you went that far!
: Still with the excuses?! You cant just do what you want like in some game!
Gainer vs. ZEUTH #3: Is THIS your so-called justice?!
: I knew it! You just couldnt follow societys rules, could you, Jiron?!
: I never cared about following rules that someone else picked for me! I live how I want to!
: And that means stomping all over other peoples lives and happiness?!
: Where do you get off saying that, you warmonger!
With that Trad gone, how about we have Jiron hitch a ride in Chils Caprico? It also lets us see her very special cut-in (ATTACK!).
Also: WAAAAAAAAAH~ Im serious!
: I thought ya were a stupid but legit guy guess I was damn wrong there, Kouji!
: Thats my line! Did you tag along with the Feds because they waved some food in your face?!
: People dont do stuff just to fill their bellies, you ass!
Pierre vs. ZEUTH:
- I really dont wanna do this
but theres no way around it if you're charging at us!
- Youre in the wrong here, so dont blame me!
: The Mazinger boy !
: Black Southern Cross, do you really not care about who wins the war?
: I wont deny that. But even I have some boundaries that I stick to.
: Having long since crossed those, youre no comrades of mine anymore!
: Please stop, Kouji! Let us go!
: Huh?! Rentons piloting the Nirvash?!
: We we still dont know what we should do
: But we cant stop right now! So
: Enough excuses! I cant just forgive what you people did, so Ill put a stop to it!
: Damn it, even the way their LFOs move are crazy!
: Oi, listen here! We might be outcasts but y'all are the crazy ones!
: You wreck anyone who disagrees with you and want us to be OK with that?!
: And you people help out anyone so long as the pays good! We cant let you be anymore!
: Im up against the Mazinger Z I wont do any damage if I dont fight for real, huh?
: If you get that, then stop attacking and give up, Garrod!
: Sorry but we aint letting any of Zafts dogs bring us in!
: The enemys a heavily-armored Super Robot so Ill just aim right at its joints!
: Whoa, thats Cpt. Jamil?!
: When did he start piloting Mobile Suits again?!
: Stop it, Kouji! Nothing goodll come out of fighting for Zafts agenda!
: So I should just fight at random, is that it?!
: The conflicts never gonna end like that!
: And thats your reason for suppressing anyone who wont fall in line?! I thought you were better than that, Kouji!
: If thats whats driving you in battle, then its time for a wake-up call!
: No way Im getting through Mazingers armor if I dont make all shots count So, Im gonna have to play for keeps, Kouji!
: Well, dont think youll just have your way with me like some girl!
: I couldve lived without that mental image But I dont hold back when fighting men!
: Enough is enough, Marin! Youre only making things worse for you!
: Kouji ! Would you also discriminate against me for being from S-1?!
: N-No, I--!
: Dont even try to explain! I thought you were an honest man, someone whod empathize with the heart of others but I was wrong!
: I wont tolerate anyone whod try to exterminate others just because they come from another world!
: Brother !
: Maria its dangerous for you to keep working with them!
: Please, come with me! Right now!
: But what about you, brother?! Why are you traveling with such people?!
: What happened to the proud, kind brother I knew?!
: I dont wanna fight you, Duke Fleed! Please, do as we say!
: I cannot! Your methods will simply cause humanity to destroy everything itself included!
: We need your power precisely to keep that from happening!
: And I will bring you in by force if thats what it takes!
Eeeergh barely short of downing Maria but I had a ship finish her off:
: Damn it ! None of you are who I thought you were!
: Urgh! Why wont you try to understand?!
