Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

Part 28: Warehouse B

VLR OST: [Placidity]

I guess we're finally going to check out this suspiciously Warehouse A-shaped room on floor B.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

It looks like another warehouse.

I guess there's one on this floor too, then.
Makes sense. I guessed as much when I saw the map.

Probably more graffiti. There was one on Floor A too, remember?

Yeah, there was, but...

Is that Dio?

Looks like it. Let's go see what he's up to.

[Music fades out]

VLR OST: [Eeriness]

Oh... Nothing.
Just going with the flow, you know? Seeing where life takes me.

You don't seem to have any interest in searching for Quark.

Do we even know he's really missing? Maybe the little shit's just off having naptime somewhere.
So I figure, let sleeping dogs lie, right? Or kids in this case, I guess.
If we wake him up, he might realize he's got enough BP to blow this popsicle stand and ditch us.
That happens and it's all over. We'll be stuck in here for the rest of our lives. Which probably won't be all that long.

The rest of our lives...?

Yeah, did I stutter?
Or did you just forget? Zero Jr. told us, remember?

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Did you bring Phi here so I can kill her?


Oh, really? You already forgotten your little stunt earlier?
We're damn lucky K chose "ally".

Hmph. Sounds like you're getting a little desperate.
Word of advice, Dio.

All you'll do is make sure that whoever plays against you in the AB Game won't pick "ally".

You talk as if I give a fuck.
I already know I won't be up against you two.

Why not?

You guys are the magenta pair, right?
Two pairs can't go through the same Chromatic Door.
Simple enough for you?

K told me.
He was here a while ago. Speaking of which...
Tenmyouji and Clover were here too.
Guess everybody misses my company.
Anyway, that's how I know what everyone's colors are.

Was K by himself?


What about Luna?

Luna? Haven't seen her.


I see...

Anyway, K and I won't be pairing with you two.
We'll be taking the blue solo.

That's... that's Alice's bracelet.
But... how did you know that?

Look at the doors in front of you. These are the next Chromatic Doors.


I get it.

You can get yellow by adding red and green together. If you add blue to that...
...It becomes white.


You get magenta by adding red and blue together, and then adding green to that gives you white...
So that means Phi and I would need to pair up with the green solo, which is... Luna.


That means the other three would be in the same team as before.
Tenmyouji, Clover and Quark.
We know that Tenmyouji's a red solo and Clover is a cyan pair, so...

The only one left is the other cyan pair, so we can assume that's what Quark is.

No. There's only one option this time.

All we've gotta do now is wait for these white doors to open.

We should get back to floor A...

Moving around so much is a pain in the ass.

Nobody invited you. C'mon, Phi.

Lots of beeping and door-opening later...

We... stop in the Lounge?

999 OST: [Riddle and Puzzle]

Huh? Something up?
Why'd you just stop?

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

You see that clock over there? The one that looks like the sun?

It reminded me of something we saw earlier.

What do you mean?

Remember the graffiti on floor B?
Do you remember what it said?


Do you know what that means?

It's Latin for something like... "be aware of death", or "remember death"...
I think it's usually used to mean "We're all going to die some day so don't forget about your own mortality."

What about the other part?

Well, I mean, that's pretty straightforward, right?
"If the ninth lion ate the sun." I mean, yeah, it's kind of nonsense, but--
Oooooh. I get it. That's what the clock made you think of, right? The sun in that sentence.

Apart from the fact that it made no sense?
Not really...

Maybe you're not the eagle eye I thought you were.
I guess I have to do everything.
Part of it was spelled wrong.

It should be N, I, N, T, H, but the graffiti had N, I, N, E, T, H.

Oh... Yeah, I guess you're right.


That's kind of a bonehead mistake...
Do you think it was, like, a kid who wrote it?

Maybe it wasn't a mistake at all.

I'm not following.

Maybe Zero put that "e" in there on purpose.

But... why?

Maybe because he didn't have enough letters otherwise?

Uh... what?


"Remember death. If the ninth lion ate the sun."

It's already 2 minutes past time.

We should get moving.
