Pre-Battle Dialogues (Story Mode)

"KOF Teams" Intro

Athena: "So, how's your training going, Kensou?"
Kensou: "It's going just fine, thank you very much! I feel like a brand new person! Just look at how manly I've become, Athena!"
Athena: "Uh... Sure... I guess?"
Kensou: "Hey, wait! You didn't even look properly! Did you even see these manly biceps!?"
Athena: "Oh, Kensou. You can't judge the manliness of biceps just by looking. You can only truly tell how manly a guy is by fighting a match with them."
Kensou: "W-Wait, that's not really necessary, is it? Come on, say something, Teach!"
Chin: "Hmmm, I haven't seen you two spar in a while. It'd make for a good warm up, certainly!"
Athena: "See, I'm right! Great! Let's get started, Kensou!"
Kensou: "Why does this always happen!? Oh, all right. Let me show you a little of what I've learned!"

Team Japan (Round 1 - Playing as Team Japan)

Athena: "Don't you ever wear your school uniform anymore, Kyo?"
Kyo: "Nah, I think I'm a bit too old for that now..."
Athena: "Really!? Then you finally graduated! Congratulations!"
Kyo: "Hm? Yeah... I guess... Something like that."
Benimaru: "Just tell her, Kyo. You couldn't ask for an easier lead in..."
Kyo: "S-shut up! There's nothing to say..."
Athena: "Wait, what's he talking about!? Kyo, you aren't..."
Kensou: "You're not still getting held back, are you!?"
Kyo: "No, I'm not! I'm just not in school anymore!"
Kensou: "Oh. So then did you graduate?"
Daimon: "Well, sometimes in a boy's life, things happen, and stuff changes..."
Benimaru: "He's been in all these incidents, and then he just disappeared for a while..."
Chin: "Still, I can't condone this. Winners don't quit, especially when it comes to school. This must be causing your parents so much grief. Why don't you finish school?"
Daimon: "He does make a good point, Kyo..."
Kyo: "Stop pressuring me into things! Let's get this fight over already!"
Kensou: "But... you didn't actually decide anything."
Benimaru: "It's probably best not to push the subject any further."
Athena: "O-Okay...

Team Elisabeth

Athena: "You came here looking for Ash, didn't you?"
Elisabeth: "...So you know? Either way, that information will do you no good at this point."
Athena: "B-But..."
Shen Woo: "Hey, we haven't even started, and you're already looking weak! You'd better put up a good fight!"
Kensou: "We're just worried about you personally! It won't affect the outcome of the fight!"
Duo Lon: "You're so certain you'll win that you can show concern for us? Surely you're not that foolish...?"
Chin: "Now now, it's nothing like that. The kid just has some quirks, that's all. He's always trying to bear the world's problems by himself. It's painful to watch."
Elisabeth: "......"
Athena: "I know! We'll help you locate Ash!"
Shen Woo: "Wait, why would you do that?"
Kensou: "Well, it is our job to help people."
Duo Lon: "Well, what about this match, then?"
Athena: "We will fight with all our might, obviously! After that, we will help you find Ash!"
Elisabeth: "I appreciate the sentiment. By talking with you, I've been able to sort out what I was feeling."
Athena: "So..."
Elisabeth: "This is my family's problem! I cannot let young people like you become entangled in this!"
Athena: "E-Elisabeth!?"
Elisabeth: "If you really want to help our cause, you can do so by stepping aside now..."
Kensou: "Wh-What should we do, Teach? Looks like we only got her more fired up!"
Chin: "I don't think we can avoid this one. It's tough, but we'll have to deal with it."

Team Fatal Fury

Athena: "It's such an honor to fight the world-famous Terry Bogard!"
Terry: "Oh, stop. I'm nothing special. I'm just happy if I can get in a good fight."
Andy: "You've changed, Kensou. It looks like you've spent a lot of time training."
Kensou: "Thanks for noticing! I've got some new tricks up my sleeve too! Wanna see?"
Chin: "Hohoho, maybe we should have a little contest between Tung's students and mine, eh? Yes, yes, I like the sound of that. I'll just be sitting on the side, having a drink..."
Joe: "Hey, old man. Stop acting senile."
Chin: "Hm? Oh, sorry. I hadn't noticed you."
Joe: "They're having their own party over there, so why don't you entertain me for a while, huh?"
Chin: "But I'm already so old. I don't think I'd be much of a challenge for you..."
Joe: "I said cut the act, old man! You're Master Tung's friend, right? Then maybe you can teach me something! I want to show off some of my moves!"
Chin: "My my, what a spirited young man. All right, I guess I'll stretch my muscles a bit then."

Team Women Fighters

Yuri: "Hey, Athena, isn't it hard being an idol? I mean, you can't hang out with friends in public or date and stuff, right?"
Athena: "Yeah, there are some restrictions on my personal life... But I'm happy to be an idol, so I can accept those inconveniences!"
Mai: "But you're still so young! You should date! Love makes you prettier and stronger!"
King: "Oh, here we go. Again with the Andy stories..."
Yuri: "Hey, what about you, King!?"
King: "W-What are you talking about!?"
Yuri: "You've gotten a lot prettier ever since you started seeing my brother."
King: "D-Don't be ridiculous! Well, what about you? What's going on between you and Robert?"
Chin: "Hohoho, that brings back memories. I remember when I first met granny..."
Athena: "It's so nice that you all have someone special to talk so passionately about. I wish I could have someone like that in my life..."
Kensou: "Hey, wait a minute! You have me, Athena!"
Athena: "Huh? You don't count, Kensou you're like a friend, or an ally or something."
Mai: "Oh, poor Kensou♪ He's stuck in "just friends" jail."
Kensou: "Could you all shut up for a second? Athena, I really lo...l-lo...lo-lo-lo-lo!"
Athena: "Kensou! Not in front of everyone else!"
Yuri: "Oh? That's a suspicious response! Was that all an act just now?"
Athena: "W-What? There wasn't anything suspicious..."
Kensou: "Athena, I lo-lo... luhhhhh!"
Athena: "Oh, give it a rest already, Kensou! Look, it's time to fight now, okay? Let's go!"
Mai: "That's a shame... Still no progress this time, eh?"
Chin: "Hoho! That's youth for you!"

Team Kim

Kim: "I knew I would run into you here, Athena! The heart of the righteous never knows defeat!"
Athena: "Yes, exactly! Let's make this the best match ever!"
Hwa Jai: "Hey hey, wait a second here! We're fighting kids and the elderly? Is this some kind of joke?"
Kensou: "Watch your mouth, old man! There's no need to get personal. We're here in the finals. You know what that means, right?"
Kim: "Indeed. You are a worthy match. These two have trained under Master Chin. You know Master Tung, correct? This man and Master Tung are old friends."
Hwa Jai: "What!? He's a friend of Tung!?"
Chin: "Why, yes I am. I wonder how old Tung is doing..."
Raiden: "I may be a heel, but picking on senior citizens would look bad, even for me... Hey, gramps! How about I let you have a couple free hits or somethin'?"
Hwa Jai: "Shut it, Raiden! Kung fu grampas aren't something to mess with..."
Chin: "Hm? Are you talking about me? I think you're overestimating me a bit."
Raiden: "Relax, Hwa. I'm like 50 times his size. I'll crush him before he tries anything."
Hwa Jai: "How many times do I gotta tell you that size doesn't matter in a fight! Heh, we'd better just beat him up before he has time to try anything funny!"
Chin: "Now now, don't get all aggressive. I'm just a harmless old man..."
Kim: "We're not falling for that one, Master Chin. Allow us to take you on in battle!"

Team Japan (Finals - Playing as Team Psycho Soldier)

Athena: "Kyo, are you after Ash too?"
Kyo: "So you know? Good. That makes things easier. This is the final match. Sorry, but I really gotta win this one!"
Athena: "Well, so do we. We can't disappoint all the people who we've defeated up to this point. We can't afford to lose this match!"
Benimaru: "Wow, someone's ready for battle. Something happen, sweet thing?"
Kensou: "Joke all you want, blondie. We're not the kids you used to know."
Benimaru: "Oh, can you actually fight this time?"
Daimon: "Master Chin... So you're..."
Chin: "Hmph, I knew you would have it figured out by now. It's not that I don't trust you, but I'm going to have to ask you to step aside."
Kyo: "As if , old man... Besides, this is my problem, you hear? So just get out of my way!"
Athena: "Kyo, you shouldn't try to do everything on your own. We can help you too!"

Pre-Battle Dialogues

Andy Bogard

Andy: "I can't go easy on anyone, no matter who the opponent is! That's the right thing to do as a martial artist!"
Athena: "Right! Let's give it our best!"
Andy: "I can sense your indomitable spirit! I can see why Master Chin chose you as one of his disciples!"

Ash Crimson

Athena: "I didn't see it before, but I see it now... You are carrying some kind of determination in your heart."
Ash: "So what if I am? I'm not asking to be understood by any of you."
Athena: "But, it's so sad! Surely you need someone you can confide in..."
Ash: "Enough with the talking, mademoiselle ♪ I don't have all day."

Benimaru Nikaido

Athena: "Benimaru! I'm telling you right now that if you dare to go easy on me, I'll get really, really, really angry!"
Benimaru: "If I take this seriously I won't feel good about myself, and if I don't, you will hate me... Do you see all the dilemmas I have to face in my everyday life!?"
Athena: "Oh, poor baby! Now stop screwing around and fight me, already!"
Benimaru: "As you wish. I can see that you're more of a warrior than a little girl anyway."

Billy Kane

Athena: "I hear you have a younger sister... What would she say if she saw you here like this?"
Billy: "Mind your own business! My family is no concern of yours!"

Chin Gentsai

Athena: "It's an honor to be able to fight you again, Master! Please don't hold back!"
Chin: "That's good to hear. Well, maybe you could do me a favor and go a bit easy on me today? Maybe it's my old age, but I've been feeling very tired lately and I don't know if I can keep up..."
Athena: "Don't try to dupe me into letting my guard down! I know all your tricks, Master!"

Clark Still

Athena: "I don't want to get in the way of your mission but... I can't accept defeat here either!"
Clark: "Don't worry about it, I won't ask you to let me win for the sake of my mission, little girl. Field work is expected in my line of work. I'll gain victory and complete my mission by my own hands!"

Duo Lon

Athena: "Poor you! Your heart radiates nothing but sorrow and pain!"
Duo Lon: "If you can really hear the dead crying in agony, then you should do the sensible thing and leave here right now. You're too docile to survive for long..."
Athena: "I still have to fight! For all the people out there who are too weak to defend themselves!"


Elisabeth: "Such innocent and beautiful eyes... You look far too nice to continue fighting."
Athena: "Thanks for your compliments and concern! But I'm a warrior, just like you! If I were the type to just give up when facing a tough opponent, I wouldn't have come here in the first place!"
Elisabeth: "I can sense your firm resolve. Very well, then. I, Elisabeth Blanctorche, shall be your opponent today!"

Evil Ash

Athena: "This ominous force... These black flames! You're not Ash, are you?"
Evil Ash: "Who cares!? Just shut up! All your talk about love and peace makes me retch! Jealousy and hatred are so much appropriate for humans!  These are your true dark desires! And our master shall swallow these desires of yours, and use them to come back to life once more!"
Athena: "No... I won't let you! Even if I have to lay down my life, I'll find a way to stop you!"

Goro Daimon

Athena: "Hello, Mr. Daimon! How's Mr. Shingo doing?"
Goro: "Oh, he's getting better. I'll be sure to tell him you asked about him."
Athena: "Thank you! We're about the same age so I was worried about him..."


Athena 1: "Huh!? Wh-What's this!? Another me!?"
Athena 2: "I-Is this some kind of a set-up? Like a hidden camera show or something?"

Hwa Jai

Hwa Jai: "I can't stand it when little brats like you prance around acting like they know everything about fighting! What on earth could you possibly know? You were still wearing diapers a week ago!"
Athena: "I am younger than you, but I still do believe I know what fighting is about!"

Iori Yagami

Athena: "Iori... Are you still chasing after Kyo even though you've lost your flames?"
Iori: "You again... I'm getting sick of all you talking! Instead of bothering other people, straighten out your own life first!"

Joe Higashi

Joe: "Hey, how've you been, Athena? I'm always rooting for ya when I see you on TV!"
Athena: "Thanks, Joe! I always try my hardest to honor my fans!"
Joe: "Well, sadly, I'm gonna have to disappoint some of those fans today. You see, today is my day to shine!"
Athena: "We'll just see about that, Joe!"


K': "Psh... Another kid, huh? It's so tiresome to have to go easy on kids like you all the time."
Athena: "Are you really that worried about me? I knew you were a good guy after all!"
K': "Wh-What!? Shut your piehole, girl! I've wasted enough time on this conversation already!"

Kim Kaphwan

Athena: "Nice to see you Kim! How's Jhun doing?"
Kim: "I think you misunderstand our relationship. We are not particularly close in any way."
Athena: "Really? I thought you two were best friends."
Kim: "Is that how it appears? I'm sure he would be even more disappointed to hear that than I am. Well, enough about Jhun. Let's begin!"


Athena: "I'm usually teamed up with my teacher, so I always kind of envy you, King! It must be so much fun to put together a team with a different group of girls. Just like in school!"
King: "Well, if you'd like, I'd gladly exchange one of my teammates for you!"
Athena: "W-Why, Miss King? Did something happen?"
King: "Well, nothing serious, it's just... Mai and Yuri just can't hold their liquor very well... And you're still a minor so I couldn't possibly ask you to take care of two drunkards, could I?"
Athena: "Oh, I don't mind. I'm used to being around people when they get hammered! Whenever Master gets drunk, he goes out and fights pandas!"
King: "R-Really!? Is that what your teacher does when he gets drunk?"
Athena: "Oh yeah, it happens all the time! Grandma always gets really angry with him though!:
King: "Wow... Alcohol is the great equalizer, huh?"

Kula Diamond

Athena: "What are K' and Maxima thinking!? Don't they care about anyone but themselves?"
Kula: "What are you so upset about, miss? Did K' do something mean to you?"
Athena: "Not to me, to you! Always putting you into these dangerous situations! I don't care how strong you are, you're still just a kid! Those men are so inconsiderate!"
Kula: "Huh? I'm not a kid anymore, you know? That boy with the big hat is much younger than me!"
Athena: "This isn't about Bao, it's about you! I'm going to tell those guys not to put you in jeopardy and I'll make sure they listen!"

Kyo Kusanagi

Kyo: "Wow, I don't know what to say... Is this one of your strategies?"
Athena: "Huh? Strategies? What are you talking about?"
Kyo: "I mean, this is just a PR stunt, right? No one your age wears a sailor uniform anymore."
Athena: "Th-That's not a PR stunt! It's a return to my origin! It's a throwback!"
Kyo: "A throwback? I wouldn't wear a school uniform anymore if my life depended on it."
Athena: "J-Just shut up about it already, or you'll get me really angry! Let's get this over with!"

Leona Heidern

Athena: "U-Umm... Leona? Are you feeling okay?"
Leona: "I'm fine... Why do you ask...?"
Athena: "...I can't just say that she looks even moodier than usual, can I?"
Leona: "Do you have a problem with me looking moody?"
Athena: "Eek! Did I just say that out loud!?"
Leona: "Don't worry about thinking that I look moody. I certainly don't mind."
Athena: "S-Somehow, your indifference only makes me feel worse..."

Mai Shiranui

Mai: "A sailor uniform... That takes me back... I remember the days when I was a schoolgirl and I... ...Wait, you're making me sound like I'm an old hag here! How dare you?! I'll show you! I've got plenty of good years left!"
Athena: "W-Wait Mai, I didn't say anything..."


Athena: "You people again! No matter how many times you keep coming back, I will put an end to your evil plans!"
Mature: "Pretending to be the defender of peace... It makes my hair stand on end! This planet doesn't need you or any of mankind. It needs Orochi! That is why we shall appear again and again! The planet itself is keeping us alive!"
Athena: "Even if that's true, I still can't let you destroy mankind! I firmly believe in humanity's possibilities!"
Mature: "You will be savagely disappointed. But perhaps that's just what a naive girl like you needs... You need a lesson in the cruelty of this world!"


Maxima: "You're wearing something new every time I see you. Do you know what a pain it is to be constantly updating your images in my database?"
Athena: "Huh!? Why are you even concerned about keeping track of stuff like that, Maxima!?"
Maxima: "I-It's nothing like that! I'm only interested in your strength, but you tend to fight differently depending on your outfit. That's it!"

Mr. Karate

Athena: "That aura... Are you Mr. Sakazaki? But... Wh-What happened to you!?"
Mr. Karate: "Begone, girl... If the very thought of me scares you, then you will not last long against me."
Athena: "But I have to do this! I may be inexperienced, but I'm still a warrior!"


Athena: "You shouldn't wear yourself out like that all the time, Kyo. Everyone's worried about you!"
Kyo: "Well then, you can tell everyone not to... Wait a minute. Yuki didn't ask you to come here, did she?"


Raiden: "Hey now, what kind of a handicap match is this!? This is gonna be too one-sided to be any fun!"
Athena: "Isn't it a pro's duty to put on a great fight no matter who you're fighting? That's what I always do when I get on the stage! After all, there are some people in the audience that may never get to see me again!"
Raiden: "Gah ha ha! Well you've got me beaten in that round, missy! You're absolutely right! Time to get serious! Let's put on a show to remember!"

Ralf Jones

Ralf: "Hmm... I wonder why our girlie can't be a little bit more like you."
Athena: "Um, Ralf, are you talking about Leona?"
Ralf: "Yeah. Do you... Do you think you could tell me why she has to be like that all the time?"
Athena: "U-Uhhh, I, uh, I guess I have a vague idea... Are you sure you want to hear it?"
Ralf: "Yeah, go for it! Maybe it'll be a shock, but it can only help the situation in the long run, right?"
Athena: "Well, okay... I think the biggest reason she's that way is because of the people around her..."
Ralf: "What!? Are you saying Clark and the Commander are to blame!?"
Athena: "Hey! You left yourself out! You're the biggest problem of the bunch!"

Robert Garcia

Robert: "So you're my next opponent, huh, Athena? Fighting you just doesn't feel right, though..."
Athena: "Huh? It doesn't feel right? What's that supposed to mean!?"
Robert: "It's just that you have some very, er, enthusiastic fans, and they scare the living daylights out of me."
Athena: "I see... I can't help you with that. You're going to have to talk to Jhun yourself..."
Robert: "Haha! I didn't even have to mention him by name and you knew who it was. Well, even with your one-man insane fan club, I'm still going all out!"
Athena: "I wouldn't have it any other way! We'll settle this fair and square!"

Ryo Sakazaki

Ryo: "Don't you think you're relying on your psychic powers too much? It seems like you're neglecting your physical training. Once the chips are down, all you can truly rely on are your own arms and legs!"
Athena: "Those, and my mind! My Master has taught me how to wield my mind as a weapon well!"
Ryo: "I see... It seems I've said too much then. Let's see what you're capable of!"


Athena: "Your evil plan ends here! I will stop you!"
Saiki: "Psycho Powers, eh? You seem to be closer to us than to human beings..."
Athena: "What's that supposed to mean!? I'm nothing like you!"
Saiki: "Hm? Do you not understand? Or are you just playing dumb? Either way, you will still find out how narrow-minded humans really are! Killing you off before you've experienced total despair is merciful, is it not?"

Shen Woo

Shen: "I promise not to hit you in the face. Your fans would probably never let me hear the end of it if I did."
Athena: "I appreciate your kindness, but that will not be necessary! I may be an idol, but I'm a Psycho Soldier first!"
Shen: "Great! You're definitely one of the old man's pupils. Out of respect, I won't go easy on you!"

Sie Kensou

Kensou: "U-uh, Athena, I, uh... I l-l, l-lo, lo-lo.."
Athena: "Right, let's go, Kensou! Don't think you'll be let off easy this time!"
Kensou: "Wha? No, just listen to me for a moment, Athena! I lo, l-lo, lololo!"
Athena: "I-I can't hear you! L-let's just go already!"

Takuma Sakazaki

Takuma: "I have never once underestimated the power of Kung Fu since my fight with Lee Gakusuo. I will give it 100% whether my opponent is a fearsome Kung Fu master or a young girl such as yourself!"
Athena: "Thank you! It means a lot to me that you acknowledge me as a true martial artist! Now let us fight and hold nothing back!"

Terry Bogard

Terry: "I know how to please the crowd pretty good, but you've got me totally beat in that category!"
Athena: "D-Don't be silly! Your performance always gets the fans fired up!"
Terry: "I'm glad to hear that coming from you! Well then, let's have a fight that'll keep people buzzin' for years!"
Athena: "Absolutely! My fans around the globe are counting on it!"


Vice: "Long time no see, Idol Girl! How've you been?"
Athena: "You're from the Orochi Clan, aren't you? You're still alive!?"
Vice: "Never mind that. Let me hear you scream in perfect pitch once again!"

Yuri Sakazaki

Yuri: "Hnnnn... HA! Heeya! No, that's not right..."
Athena: "Umm... Yuri? What are you doing?"
Yuri: "I'm developing Psycho Powers, obviously! I thought I could learn a thing or two from you..."
Athena: "If it was really that easy to develop my powers, then what would that say about all the work that Kensou had put in?"
Yuri: "Ugh! I just can't get that Psycho Ball to come out! You're just going to have to show me! Come on, Athena! It's time to fight. I'll be studying your moves so I can use them after this fight!"
Athena: "Hey! It's really not that easy, you know...?"

Kukri: "You should know better than to offer up the right answer right at the start! It kills the tension! I guess I shouldn't expect any better from a third-rate idol!"
Athena: "T-Third rate!?!? I don't think you have any room to talk, creep!"
Nakoruru: "Pay him no mind, Athena! I don't care how far down the charts your songs fail! I will always be rooting for you!"
Athena: "Err.. Nakoruru. That's not really helping!"

Athena: "S-Shermie...?"

Athena: "It's been too long! What have you been up to?"
Shermie: "What do you mean, What have I been up to? Didn't you hear? I died a pretty gruesome death..."
Kukri: "Shut your traps, pests! It's my time to speak!"

Sylvie: Huh? What are you doing, Kukri?
Kukri: "Gah! What are you even doing here?! You weren't invited! This party is limited to ladies I have ranked at least a 9 or higher!"

Kukri: "Stop all of your silly squabbling and just resign yourself to joining my beautiful collection!"

Yuri: "Hm? Where is this place?"
Kukri: "To think that you started off as the cute little sister character, but ended up mastering Hao Shoukou Ken in less than a year! That abduction was nothing but a ruse, wasn't it!? Wasn't it!?"
Yuri: "Hehe, I will take that as a compliment! I am a genius, after all!"
Athena: "Yuri... That wasn't meant as a compliment. He's throwing mad shade at you."
Yuri: "H-Huh? Well, whatever! Kukri! Show your face so I can pummel it Kyokugenryu style!"
Kukri: "Crap, they figured it out!"

Pre-Battle Dialogues


Athena 2: "I can't let you pass. Not if you deny the true destiny of we bearers of the three sacred treasures."
Athena 1: "What...? What is going on? It's... ME!?"
Athena 2: "I am a shadow, a reflection, created by the power of Yata. If you refuse to turn back..."
Athena 1: "Wait. Listen! I'm here not only on my master's orders, but because I sense trouble. So I think..."
Athena 2: "You're not needed here. It's our mission to seal away the Orochi. You will not interfere."
Athena 1: "I'm well aware of the three sacred treasures. But won't you reconsider? Please!"
Athena 2: "We have no time to argue. If you insist on staying, then prove that you're worthy!"


Goenitz: "To think there is such power in a human who is not the bearer of a sacred treasure!"
Athena: "I'm not going to stand around and listen to you preach. Move aside or else!"
Goenitz: "Your lost soul, your anger, fears, and conflict... All these qualities fuel our lord's resurrection."
Athena: "No! I won't let that happen! I'm going to stop the Orochi and rescue everyone! You'll see!"
Goenitz: "But are you doing the right thing? Can it truly be right to protect a race that's bent on destruction? Is this truly your idea of justice? Is this what you wish to stand for?!"
Athena: "Y-Yes... I-I'm doing this for... To save everyone. One day... People will understand..."
Goenitz: "Hmph! Enough drivel! This sermon is over! Prepare to defend yourself!"

Iori Yagami (Playing as Iori)

Athena: "Iori. I knew you'd be here! By order of the master, I'm afraid I can't let you go any further."
Iori: "..."
Athena: "Hey! Don't you dare ignore me! You can't just walk past me like that!"
Iori: "Listen, little lady. Stay out of my way if you want to keep breathing."
Athena: "(I don't like the sound of that.) The master believes there's more to all this than meets the eye. He told me that should either Kyo or yourself be deeply involved, I must definitely stop you."
Iori: "You? Stop me? Now, there's an amusing thought."
Athena: "I can see you're not taking me seriously. But since it's up to me to stop you... I WILL!"

Kula Diamond (Playing as Athena)

Kula: "Who...are you?"
Athena: "You! I remember you. You were with the NESTS team... Kula, right? Why are you here?"
Kula: "Kula doesn't know... Where... Where is everybody...?"
Athena: "(She must've been abducted...) Don't worry, Kula. I'll get you out of here and take you back home."
Kula: "Home...? Back home... Where...?"
Athena: "Just hold on. I'll open a gateway back home."
Kula: "No... Kula won't go back... Stay here with the others... Never back to NESTS... Never!"

Kula Diamond (Playing as Kula)

Kula: "Who are you?"
Athena: "W-Wait a minute. I'm here to save the[sic] all those that were abducted."
Kula: "Abducted? Is that why everybody's gone?"
Athena: "It's too dangerous for you to go any further. I'll rescue everyone. You wait back in our world, okay?"
Kula: "No! Kula will find everyone. Get out of my way."
Athena: "I wish you'd listen to me. If you insist, I'll do everything in my power to stop you!"
Kula: "I said get out of my way. I don't want to hurt you."


Kusanagi: "Young lady... This isn't the sort of place you want to wander into on your way home from school."
Athena: "I'm not on my way home from school! And what about you anyway, Kyo? Have you been to school lately?!"
Kusanagi: "Geez, girl. Can't you take a joke?"
Athena: "What? Wait... You're not... You're not Kyo, are you? Your another shadow sent by Miss Kagura to stop me."
Kusanagi: "Nah. I'm definitely a shadow spawned by the Yata power, but I'm not here on her say so."
Athena: "Then why do you stand in my way? I have no time to waste. Let me through!"
Kusanagi: "That's what I was waiting for! You always get your way, don't you?! Well, you won't get it this time!"

Kyo Kusanagi (Playing as Kyo)

Athena: "Stop! This is as far as you go! Oh! Wait a minute... Kyo? It's you, isn't it?"
Kyo: "Did you burn a few brain cells using all your psychic powers? Of course it's me!"
Athena: "Sorry. I didn't recognize you without your school uniform."
Kyo: "Yeah, whatever. Wait a second... The Orochi Seal! What are you doing in here?!"
Athena: "Master Chin's orders... Oops! I almost forgot! I can't let you go any further."
Kyo: "Wow. That came outta the blue! You know what you're letting yourself in for, don't you?"
Athena: "I do. We both know talk is cheap... And that action speaks louder."
Kyo: "Sounds like you speak my language. If that's the case... Let's see what else you know!"

Mai Shiranui (Playing as Mai)

Athena: "It's been a while, Mai."
Mai: "Athena! What are you doing here?"
Athena: "This is kind of awkward, Mai, but...would you mind leaving this place, please? I'd love to explain, but there's no time. I'd be so grateful if you'd just turn back."
Mai: "Sorry, Athena. I can't do that. Not even for you. Andy needs me now more than ever. If I don't save him, he...he... (sniff)"
Athena: "Are you okay, Mai? Listen, I know how you feel. I know you want to help Andy. But it's too dangerous for you. You don't have the skills. I'll save everyone, including Andy."
Mai: "No! If you try to come between Andy and me, I won't hesitate to beat you to a pulp!"

Omega Rugal

Omega Rugal: "HAHAHA! I never thought the day would come when I'd be thanking the championess of righteousness!"
Athena: "What the...? Rugal?! What's going on?!"
Omega Rugal: "It's really very simple... With the Orochi gone, his power became mine, and resurrected me."
Athena: "You planned the Orochi's resurrection from the start?"
Omega Rugal: "Very good. You are quick, aren't you? The Orochi was as much a pawn as you and your fellows!"
Athena: "I won't let you get away with this! By my honor as a psycho soldier, I'll stop you!"
Omega Rugal: "As you wish. As my final deed before my glorious return to the world, I shall show you true power! You should feel honored that I've chosen you to be the first victim of Omega Rugal's might!"

Orochi Chris

Chris: "Why you would come all this way to rescue these worthless human dregs is beyond my comprehension."
Athena: "Tell me you're the last one! Just hand over the captives and stop the Orochi's resurrection!"
Chris: "Stop it? Not likely! It's nearly complete. But I'll hand over the captives, if you like. Mind you, there might not be much of them left now that their energy's been almost drained! Ha ha!"
Athena: "I see. If I can't reason with you...I'll just have to use force!"
Chris: "Ooh, I'm sooo scared! You look sooo determined. But that just makes me want to torch you all the more!"
Athena: "I will not lose! I fight to prove that the path I walk is the right one... I fight so we can all smile another day!"

Orochi Iori

Orochi Iori: "Guaaargh!"
Athena: "Huh? Iori!? G-Get a grip on yourself! It's me, Athena! Athena Asamiya!"
Orochi Iori: "Graaaaaargh!"
Athena: "You're not going to make this easy, are you?"
Orochi Iori: "Kyooooooooooo!"

Orochi Shermie

Athena: "Are you...? Yes, I can sense it. You're with the Orochi, too!"
Shermie: "And that comes as a shock to you? Really? We of the clan can't just laze around while the Orochi's stirring back to life, can we now?"
Athena: "'We'...? There are more of you?"
Shermie: "Oh sure! I mean, it'd be awful lonesome for a woman on her own in a place like this, don't you think? But as soon as the Orochi is fully awake, we can venture outside the sealed area. It'll be so exciting!"
Athena: "Outside the sealed...? No! I won't allow it! I won't let the Orochi rise again!"
Shermie: "You're cute when you get worked up like that. You should relax... Let me put you to sleep...

Orochi Yashiro

Yashiro: "I gotta say, I'm pretty surprised you got this far. Ain't it about time you quit the hero act?"
Athena: "Hero act? I'm just trying to save my friends."
Yashiro: "Why? They're nothing more than animals...nipping at each other's heels! Why save them?!"
Athena: "They won't always be like that! They just need time! For now, I save them because I love to see them happy and smiling..."
Yashiro: "What a laugh! You don't really believe that! Well, let me just say I'm impressed you made it this far."
Athena: "I'll fight you to my last breath if that's what it takes to free everyone!"
Yashiro: "Hah! You're right about one thing... This is where you'll draw your last dying breath!"


Athena: "Rugal!? What are you doing here? Is this some kind of illusion?"
Rugal: "Dream...reality... It doesn't really matter. All you need to know is that you and I are here, little lady."
Athena: "You've returned because of the Orochi, haven't you? But why do you side with him? You of all people should know how dangerous his power is!"
Rugal: "Of course I do! I also know how wonderful that power can be... Now I will make it my own! And to make sure you can't interfere with my plans, I must destroy you!"

Terry Bogard (Playing as Terry)

Terry: "Yo, Athena! What's up?"
Athena: "Oh. Hello, Terry. It's been a while. But, I'm afraid we don't have time to chat! Everyone's in danger!"
Terry: "Yeah, I know. But I'm kinda lost here. I've got no idea where to go."
Athena: "You've gone far enough. Since you don't have special powers, it's too dangerous for you to go on."
Terry: "Special powers? You mean like guessin' a chick's vital stats at fifty yards? Does that count?"
Athena: "Be serious, Terry! You may not go any further. I won't let you!"
Terry: "Just the way I like it! Let's resolve this the hard way!"

Athena: "But, I..."
Iori: "Well, whatever. Tell me everything you know about GEO-GEEGUS, woman!"
Athena: "I'm sorry. I don't know any details. But he... GEO-GEEGUS is surrounded by Orochi's presence. If you get too close, you might..."
Iori: "That is none of your concern. If that's all you know, just get the heck out of here."
Athena: "Uh, c-could you just hold on for a moment?"
Iori: "If you don't get out of my way right now. I'll kill you!"
Athena: "Okay, okay. I don't want to fight you..."
Iori: "Hmph."
Athena: "But... I still can't let you go on like this! I have to stop you!!"
Iori: "You're even more stupid than you look. Let me grant you your death wish!"
