The following is a transcript for the English version of Chapter 4: The Reaper's Line of Sight.
(Pit rushes to the door to start the level.)
Pit: Here we go!
(Pit leaps through the door and flies through the air.)
Pit: So, what's our mission this time?
Pit: Not those guys!
(The Touch Screen displays the classic, 8-bit appearance of the Reaper from the original Kid Icarus.)
Pit: They're always freaking out and calling in their little Reapettes. Ugh, I'm getting worked up just thinking about it!
Palutena: Yes, anyway... About the Reapers...
Pit: Sorry, sorry, go on.
Palutena: They have a fortress near the entrance to the Underworld in Reaper Valley.
Pit: Heh. Which is where? Reaper Boulevard? But seriously, thank goodness we don't have to go there, right?
Pit: That silence means we have to go there, doesn't it? Will you at least tell me why you want to go to a place crawling with Reapers?
(The Touch Screen displays the classic, 8-bit appearance of Pandora from the original Kid Icarus.)
Pit: The goddess of disaster and calamity? THAT Pandora?
Palutena: Yes, and she's currently residing in the Labyrinth of Deceit... However, some force in the Reaper fortress is obscuring the labyrinth's location. I can't find it, not even with my all-seeing Eye of Palutena.
Pit: Wait, if you have an all-seeing eye, why can't you see Pandora's location?
Palutena: Because of my slightly botched laser eye surgery.
Pit: Are you messing with me again?
Palutena: Maybe. Regardless, your job for now is to infiltrate the Reaper fortress!
Pit: R-roger that!
(As Pit continues, he spots red dots in the distance.)
Pit: What are those red lights?
Palutena: Are they...
(Red lasers suddenly shoot out from the dots.)
Palutena: ...Reaper eyes?!
Pit: This is really bad!
(Pit narrowly dodges the red lasers.)
Palutena: We need to find you a safe route.
(A ravine comes into view.)
Palutena: Down there is your only option!
(Palutena sends Pit into the ravine.)
Palutena: This ravine should take you to the Reaper fortress. But it's tight, so be careful. If you get stuck, I won't have time to get you out.
Pit: Man, things are really heating up! Time to bust through here! Full speed ahead!
Palutena: Excellent idea, Pit. Naturally, I had the same thought. Let me help.
(As Pit maneuvers through the ravine, a large gust of wind appears.)
Palutena: Is that a windstorm up ahead?! Hang on!
(Palutena sends Pit through the windstorm.)
Palutena: Don't be such a baby. It's only wind. I mean, at least it's not poison or acid wind. Then you'd be in real trouble.
Pit: Ooh, lucky me.
Palutena: You're heading into a cave now. Be careful!
(Pit passes through the cave.)
Palutena: There are many enemies ahead!
Pit: I'll take care of 'em!
(Pit abruptly stops at a wall.)
Palutena: This looks like a dead end. There must be a way out... Hmm...
Palutena: Down there! I'm getting you out!
(Palutena sends Pit through another cave.)
Pit: The Underworld forces really stepped up their game!
Palutena: I doubt those underlings managed it on their own. It's a sure sign that Medusa is back in power.
(The exit of the cave comes into view.)
Palutena: You're almost there! 3... 2... 1... Contact!
(Pit arrives at the Reaper Fortress, where red lasers shoot at him from all directions.)
Pit: Whoooaaa! It's hot hot HOT here!
Palutena: There's no chance of getting in from above. You'll have to break through the front.
(Palutena sends Pit through the front of the fortress.)
Pit: Here we gooooo!
Palutena: Pit! Are you all right?
(Pit gets to his feet.)
Palutena: Then let's get moving. The force obscuring Pandora is deep within this fortress.
(Pit proceeds to the doorway to the right.)
Palutena: Reapers may look all evil and crazy, but there's a good reason for that. They ARE evil and crazy. But here's a little tip: they won't bother you if you stay out of their sight.
(Pit enters an enclosed space full of enemies.)
Pit: Considering this is the Reaper fortress, there really aren't very many Reapers.
Palutena: There must be a huge soul harvest going on somewhere.
Pit: What do you mean?
Palutena: Reapers are soul carriers. When a being dies, they take its soul to the Underworld. The humans probably started another war, which means a lot more souls to deal with.
Pit: Why are they always fighting? It's so sad and pointless.
Palutena: Yes, but we gods fight too, and when we do, humans are always caught in the middle.
Pit: So, this war against the Underworld Army is causing the Reapers to work overtime.
Palutena: I'M the one who should be working overtime. Then there'd be less soul harvesting... Humans get frustrated, even destructive, when we gods don't provide for their welfare.
Pit: Don't be ridiculous! Everyone loves the goddess of light! You know that!
Palutena: Thank you, Pit. I do my best. Now, then... Let's proceed.
- [If Pit breaks open the boulder obscuring a secret area.]
- Pit: Cool! A hidden area!
- Palutena: Head inside.
- [If Pit falls into the ditch with an Orne.]
- Palutena: Uh-oh. There's an Orne around you, Pit.
- Pit: Are you talking about the floating skull?
- Palutena: Yes. The slightest touch from one of those will annihilate you.
- Pit: That sounds painful. Not to mention totally unfair!
- Palutena: Fair or not, just stay away from it. Try breaking nearby rocks to find a way out.
(Pit hops onto a Grind Rail.)
Pit: Whoa-ho-ho! Nice!
Palutena: That's a grind rail. It beats walking, huh? You can ride it right into the courtyard.
- [After the Grind Rail, a random conversation may trigger.]
(Pit proceeds through the fortress and enters a room with an Eggplant Wizard.)
Pit: Not this guy!
Palutena: An Eggplant Wizard!
Pit: But I don't want to be an eggplant again!
Palutena: Way back when, you had to visit a nurse to get fixed up, remember?
Pit: I was there so much, they named the place after me: hosPITal. Get it?
Pit: It's funny. It's OK to laugh.
Palutena: No, it's really not. Anyway, there aren't any hospitals in this game.
Pit: WHAT?! But what am I gonna do?!
Palutena: Calm down, Pit. I can help you with this, too. If you're turned into an eggplant, my powers will transform you back. After a while.
Pit: Thanks, Lady Palutena!
(Pit enters a room with swinging blades.)
Pit: Those blades look like they could really put a hurt on someone.
Palutena: Be careful not to fall.
- [If Pit falls into the ditch with a Clubberskull.]
- Pit: Oof!
- Palutena: Don't panic, Pit, but there's a Clubberskull nearby. It's trapped for now, so I suggest leaving it alone. It's one dangerous enemy.
- [If Pit attacks the Clubberskull.]
- Palutena: The Clubberskull's loose! Get out of there!
- [If Pit approaches the level 5 Intensity Gate for the first time during a playthrough on an intensity lower than 5.0.]
- Pit: I don't think I can get through this way.
- Palutena: For now, why don't you just go back?
- [If Pit opens the level 5 Intensity Gate on a subsequent playthrough after triggering the previous dialogue beforehand.]
- Pit: Oh, I guess I can get through here now.
- Palutena: That's because you raised the Intensity level!
(Pit proceeds through the fortress.)
Palutena: There are Reapers creeping around in there. They'll summon Reapettes if they see you, so be careful.
- [In the room with Reapers lurking around, a random conversation may trigger.]
(After Pit enters a room full of the enemies and defeats them, a Grind Rail appears.)
Pit: Nice, another grind rail.
Palutena: This one works a bit differently. As you're riding it, shoot the targets on the walls. This will extend the rail to your destination.
Pit: That sounds easy enough.
Palutena: Just keep in mind that you can try it as many times as you need to.
(Pit takes an elevator to a lower floor, where he encounters two different Hot Spring rooms.)
Palutena: Well, well. It appears that this place is equipped with some hot springs.
Pit: Woo hoo! I could use a little R and R right about now!
- [If Pit approaches the purple Hot Spring room.]
- Palutena: There's something strange about this hot spring...
- Pit: Huh?
- Palutena: The steam seems a little...evil.
- Pit: Uuhh... That's probably not a good sign. I'll just keep moving.
(Pit heads down a hall with guillotines.)
Palutena: You're closing in on the force that's obscuring Pandora's location.
Pit: Yeah, I figured the evil lighting wasn't just for show.
(Pit heads through the doorway.)
Pit: No way!
Palutena: It's gigantic!
(The battle initiates.)
Pit: What IS that thing?
Pit: You say that like it's easy!
Palutena: That's because it IS easy!
Palutena: Those aren't just flirty looks coming from the Great Reaper's eyes!
Pit: Lemme guess—they're death rays?!
Palutena: In a nutshell. Plus, if you get hit, it'll summon Reapettes. That Great Reaper has quite the evil eye.
Pit: How can you make puns at a time like this?!
Palutena: I guess I just don't SEE the problem with a little levity.
Pit: Ugh! You're killing me here!
Palutena: I think I've found the Great Reaper's weak points. They're its head and little toes.
Pit: Oh, yeah! Stubbing those guys hurts like crazy!
Palutena: But it's more effective to target the head. The head is a weak spot for many enemies and...most living things.
(Once enough damage is dealt, light will begin to shine from the center of the Great Reaper's forehead.)
Palutena: Now! Finish it!
Palutena: The light coming from its head. Strike there!
(Pit defeats the Great Reaper.)
Pit: All done!
Palutena: Nice work, Pit!
Pit: You know what, Lady Palutena?
Palutena: What's that, Pit?
Pit: Even though I almost died, I've really enjoyed our time together.
Palutena: Aw, you poor guy. You really need to make some friends.
(Pit's eyes widen and he scratches his head. A light then shines down on him.)
Palutena: Now let's go find Pandora!
(Palutena whisks him away.)
