MOTHER 3 Final Battle!
MOTHER 3 pictures of the final battle between twin brothers! SPOILERS AHEAD! It took me a few tries to get all the screenshots (endless restarts when it got too slow!), plus hours to organize stuff in Photobucket and Facebook!
Lucas, Kumatora, Duster, and Boney encounter the Masked Man at the Final Needle:
Lucas has a Franklin Badge, which reflects the Masked Man's lightning back at him!
"THE Lucas's refreshing sensation faded!" [this is a known glitch after casting Refresh]
Apparently, it's the same with shields! "THE Lucas's shield vanished!"
From somewhere, you heard someone call your name...
It was your mother's voice. It failed to reach the Masked Man.
"You aren't Porky's robot. You are our son!"
The Masked Man looked around.
You can't attack the Masked Man...
But (as in any other fight), you CAN take mortal damage! Thank goodness there are scrolling HP meters in this game!
"LUCAS! Look out!"
Your dad jumped in front of you!
The Masked Man's attack dealt major damage to FLINT!
"CLAUS, please remember... I've been looking for you for so long..." [more than three years!]
FLINT suffered major damage. FLINT couldn't stand up.
"CLAUS... You and LUCAS are brothers!"
"Can you hear me? You're CLAUS! Your name is CLAUS! You're our son!"
"Please... Remember! LUCAS... CLAUS..."
Lucas isn't sure what to do anymore.
The Masked Man gazed at Lucas.
The Masked Man covered his ears.
The Masked Man shut his eyes.
Lucas wanted to cry.
The Masked Man is gazing at Lucas.
"Claus... come to your mother."
"You must be so exhausted. Come here, Claus."
The Masked Man looked around, as if searching for something.
The Masked Man removed his mask.
His face looked just like Lucas's. It was Claus.
Claus fired an intense bolt of lightning!
The Franklin Badge reflected the lightning back!
Claus took mortal damage!
Claus staggered toward Lucas.
Claus embraced Lucas.
Lucas remembered Claus's smell. [when I first played this game, THAT made me REALLY cry! :P]
"I'm sorry it turned out like this."
"I'm really happy you could be with me just before the end..."
"Dad. I'm sorry I didn't listen to you."
"I'm going to where Mom is now."
"Lucas. I hope we meet again someday."
"I'm sure we'll meet again."
Claus gave his final breath.
"Lucas... Thank you. Claus was just hasty, that's all."
"You'll forgive your hasty brother, won't you? ..."
"The time has come for you to pull the Dragon's last Needle." [whether you say you're ready or not, you pull it anyway]
