The Revival of Cronk and Zephyr is the 11th Episode of Season 3A of the SpongeBob and Friends Adventures Chronicles series. The Anti-Team Nefarious Freedom Fighters go to Ratchet's universe on Planet Thram to mourn the loss of some of their greatest members, Cronk and Zephyr, especially for Ratchet, Clank, and the most hurt of all of them, Talwyn Apogee. However, the team was surprised to find that something disturbed their graves and actively dragged away their bodies. All that was left was a holo-note that showed a silhouetted long-cloaked figure that claims that Cronk and Zephyr will return momentarily. So, desperate to see her lost friends again, Talwyn asks Ratchet and Clank to help find whoever left the message, and leave Team Lightyear in charge of the team while they were gone. Their quest leads them to the Badlands of Equestria, and because the Lodgers were still there repairing the damage done by Starlight's minions, they discover the three of them and decide to send a few of their members to ensure they are safe. But when the gang entered the badlands, it's typical welcoming commity proved it left alot to be desired and left them in a bad position with a crashed ship. The gang find themselves inside the ship, which they'll soon discover that it has been turned into a city for broken and formerly-destroyed machines such as Nefarious Troopers, Hornets, and even Qui's drones. The heroes finally encounter Cronk and Zephyr, and though there was a joyful reunion, they are intervened by the one who brought the two robots back: a cybernetic Nefarious-like Cragmite named Electross. While Ratchet was unforgiving to a member of an evil race, Electross said that he had no intentions to harm the friends of Cronk of Zephyr, and explained that he did it because he has always admired Ratchet not just for his accomplishments, but because he has always had a compassion for Lombaxes since he was not like the Cragmites he knew them to be. Electross was always against the Cragmites' actions during the Great War, but when he openly refused to destroy an entire Lombax colony, he was exiled for treason and 'redemption to the enemy', which in Cragmite society, is viewed as a sign of weakness. As much as he hated what his race had become, Electross couldn't bring himself to accept that the Cragmites were being exiled to another dimension by the Lombaxes, and there was no way to cleanse the evil in their hearts. But then, he discovered that Equestria has a special artifact called The Jewel of Souls that can not just revive, but alter the souls of anyone dead or alive no matter how long dead or how far morally-gone. Electross wants the Jewel of Souls so he can purify the Cragmites, and has even been able to sneak the duplicate Dimensionator that Vendra and Neftin had created, and he asks Ratchet's to help purify them once and for all, and in return, he'll even let Ratchet see his race again, and will see to it that the two races will join together and bring peace, united advancement, and order to the universes, ending the conflict of evil forever. But Electross asks that Rachet and Clank find it with Cronk and Zephyr and keep it a secret from anyone else in fear that they won't understand how it feels to be the last of your kind. While Clank is skeptical since what Electross is doing is risky, and Ratchet is worried that it might require that he lies to his comrades, including his own girlfriend. Even so, they decide to go through with it if it'll make Electross happy. They go out and find the Jewel in a temple in Tartarus guarded by a powerful Giant Hellfire Phoenix. With all this pressure to find a mystical relic that was lost for a reason yet to be known, how will everything play out?

Transcript

Chapter 1: Lost Members Mourned

In an unknown location.

  • In a long and empty hallway, music is heard, as a voice is heard talking. Battle Damaged Nefarious Troopers and Zurg Hornets are seen dragging two robotic corpses, and brought them to a cloaked figure. Then, the figure began to sing, as the song is sung during a repair senquience.

This is what he sings.

FNaF 2 - Synthetic Agony Deeper Voice

  • A Qui Drone came to land on the Figure's shoulder like a pet. (It was like the DD300 ones).
  • Qui Drone: ".... Wow, Master.... You restored those robots like you did for me and many others.... But.... I must ask, master.... What porpose do they have here? They didn't even get killed in Equestia."
  • ???: "I know.... But a strange purple being in my dreams told me that these two, and a fellow endling like me, are what I needed to finally secure the Jewel of Souls for me to realise my great dreams. They are what I need, to reform the Cragmites, and create a new allience that will bring great changes to the universes. And it all starts... With these two. Just, trust me, Trisha V19. This old cyborg exactly knows what he's doing."
  • Trisha the Qui Drone: ".... Ok. I really do hope you are. Your, the closet I have have to a father since I was made in an assemably line and made to hurt people. I, really don't wanna go back to that. That's why I stayed with you."
  • ???: "And you won't ever have to. And if this goes right... No one will ever be harmed ever again. I am sure, the fellow endling, has seen my note. He'll come eventally."

In the Rachet and Clank Universe, Planet Thram

  • Ratchet: (A large ship was seen arriving on the planet right near the wreck of a large space cruiser. Out came Ratchet, Clank, Talwyn Apogee, Team Lightyear, Major Monogram, Carl the Intern, Agent P, Kirby, and strangely enough, Captain Qwark) Well, here we are. The wreck of the Nebulox.
  • Agent P: (Makes platypus noise)
  • Clank: I believe he is saying that it seems much bigger than he expected it to be.
  • Talwyn: I just still can't believe the two are dead. After all the times we've battled Team Nefarious together.
  • Kirby: Poyo!
  • Major Monogram: Uh...just for the record, can you tell me again why we brought your friend, Captain Qwark, with us during this memorial visit?
  • Rachet: "Cause Qwark knew Cronk and Zep too. It only seems fair he gets to mourn too."
  • Major Monogram: "Ahh. I see."
  • Carl: "(Sighs), It's always a terrorable thing when the funny characters are the ones who get the ax."
  • Qwark: Of course. And it is actually quite nice to see you guys again ever since Ratchet and Clank's founding of the organization.
  • Ratchet: Yeah, you wanted to join yourself. But I guess that was until you briefly became president.
  • Qwark: So...now that I'm not president anymore, do I get to join?
  • Major Monogram: "Well, you do have a great hero record, but you do have a bit of a controversey."
  • Qwark acts nervious.
  • Qwark: "Uh, like, what exactly? (Laughs nerviously)."
  • Clank: Oh, you do have a large record of making scandals. We've named a lot of them. Like the team-up with Chairman Drek, the Personal Hygenator incident we saw on the news, and let us not forget the Protopet incident that you used to try and clear your scandals. In fact, that is why we've had to deal with Zurgo three years ago, because he was angry at your last few scandals.
  • Qwark: Oh, right.
  • Mira: What we're trying to say is that...even though you have a good status as a hero...I don't think you'll be worthy enough to join us.
  • Qwark:...Oh, you don't think I'm qualified, is THAT it? I'll have you know that I am a true hero with 45% strength, 60% bravery, and 10% raw intelligence!
  • Clank: I believe that is actually 115%.
  • Qwark: Oh...well...dang it! What am I supposed to do for a living? I mean, you two have a movie coming soon that shows me being in it, but what should I do to pass the time? I'm not the president of these galaxies anymore, and I don't have that much popularity anymore.
  • Carl: "Well, maybe if you do a heroic feat so incredable, it blows off the mess you made in the past."
  • XR: Oh, you REALLY had to give him advice.
  • Ratchet: Yeah, the last time we did that, he ended up getting the Dimensionator in the hands of Tachyon.
  • Buzz: Guys, don't be rude. I'm sure he can find SOMETHING not to screw up like-- (Everyone is shocked to see that the graves of Cronk and Zephyr have been dug up)
  • Talwyn: WHAT?!? WHAT HAPPENED HERE?!? (Looks inside the graves)...The bodies, THEY'RE GONE!!
  • Booster: Oh, boy, do you have ANY idea how illegal graverobbing is? Just about as punishable as using the illegal firearms in our worlds.
  • Clank: Who could've done this?
  • Kirby: Poyo! (He appears to have found a small yellow device inside the hole)
  • Monogram:...What is that?
  • Ratchet: It's a holo-note device. It's used to send messages.
  • Talwyn: It must have something to do with the grave-robbing. Turn it on!
  • Ratchet: (He does that, and on the screen, a silhouetted figure with the same voice as the unknown figure in the beginning appears)
  • ???: Hello, Anti-Team Nefarious Freedom Fighters. I am aware that you have come to mourn the loss of your very members, Cronk and Zephyr. Well, it should be nice to tell you that they will be returning momentarily.
  • Talwyn: Returning?
  • Carl: This guy wants to bring back these two?
  • ???: You must all be confused at what I have just done. As illegal and unexpected as it is, I have done it with the best intentions. All I ask in return...is to see your leaders, Ratchet and Clank!
  • Ratchet/Clank: Us?
  • ???: Yes. And...I suppose your girlfriend over there would be allowed to join you as well since these two have raised her since her expeditionary father was taken by that crazy space pirate.
  • Talwyn: Wait, how did he know about me?
  • ???: If you're wondering how I know this...well, I've kept track of Ratchet and Clank through buying their games. ALL of them! The entire series. Even the latest one that showed how these two died. In fact, that's actually how I knew where to find them. If you three come by...then I'll give you a surprise. But I can't tell you where I am because of seclusion reasons. There is a small compartment inside this holo-note that shows some clues as to where I am. Thank you...(The message ends)
  • Ratchet:...(Looks at the others)...
  • Mira:...He wants you two? Why?
  • Ratchet: I don't know. But I suspect it's some kind of trap from Nefarious.
  • Buzz: "Or Zurg."
  • Major Mongram: "Or.... Nah, this is too complincated for Doofinshirtz."
  • Clank: "Or most likely all of Team Nefarious. Though, honestly, I never knew Nefarious to grave rob just to get at us."
  • Rachet: "That's the problem with Nefarious. The guy gets desperate enough, he puts basic morality aside in faver of getting what he wants. The time where he originality gotten his hands on a corrupted defence intelligence chip is proof of that."
  • XR: "And Zurg, DOES have a track record of violating every basic morality rule to man. Guess he wants to add robbing from the dead into the list. And push it harder by litterally ROB the dead themselves!"
  • Mira: "Ok, I don't even know what Nefarious and Zurg want with dead warbots?"
  • Major Monogram: "Well, they are war bots. Nefarious obviously wants to revive them only to corrupt them in an attempt to revive that "turn heroes evil" thing he never pretty much got off the ground. He has only done it to that Ray guy."
  • Rachet: "Well, we pretty much have to trace this message first before we do something stupid and attack Nefarious over nothing. Just in case if we are really dealing with someone completely new."
  • Buzz: "Good idea. Investigate first. Do some action later."
  • XR: Allow me! (Plugs a cord inside the device) Back-tracing the location of it's recording... D'OH, it's nuts! This thing has some sort of safety complex to protect against machines from back-tracing it's info.
  • Ratchet: Yeah, that's like trying to violate a person's holo-diary privacy. It's to make sure an idiot isn't too nosey in someone's secrets.
  • Buzz: Looks like this thing needs some rewiring.
  • Booster: Shouldn't we at least check the clue before we do?
  • Clank: I think that would be a wise choice. (Gets into the compartment, and takes out a small piece of paper with a small pony (Non-Equestrian) on it)... Hmm... I can't make this out. It looks like some kind of horse.
  • Mira: (Sees the clue)... I think it IS a horse.
  • Carl: "It's actselly a pony. Horses are much taller and bulkier."
  • Everyone looks at Carl oddly.
  • Carl: "..... Not that, I would know... Cause, I worked in a horse farm once?"
  • Monogram: "I, don't recall reading about that in your resime, Carl."
  • Talwyn: Hmm... I can't make any sense of it either.
  • Agent P: (Makes noise)
  • Clank: The ponies of Equestria? But... This doesn't look like an Equestrian pony. It just looks like a normal one. (Agent P makes noise)... That is a good point, it could be a way of hiding it.
  • Ratchet: Hmm... Equestria... We haven't been there since we stopped Nefarious during it's Grand Galloping Gala years ago. Should we go there?
  • Buzz: I don't know. Perhaps we should examine this holo-note before we do anything else.
  • Talwyn:... (Takes deep breath) Me, Ratchet, and Clank will go.
  • Everyone: WHAT?!?
  • Mira:... Okay, I know you're still hurt about their deaths, Ms. Apogee, but we have to think smart here. We need to make sure this quest is not as dangerous as we thought.
  • Talwyn: I'm sure I can handle everything. Team Lightyear can be in charge of the Freedom Fighters and handle the examination while we're gone.
  • Kirby: Poyo!! Poyo!!
  • Talwyn: No, Kirby, you can't come with us. (Kirby gives her a sad face)...(Sighs) I hate it when you look at me like that!
  • Ratchet: He's only a baby, Talwyn, you can't blame him for acting this way.
  • Talwyn: (Sighs) I miss it when Cronk and Zephyr take Kirby off my legs and takes him out to play. I usually heard them making him laugh.
  • Buzz: Talwyn, we can't take this risk quite yet. We need to examine this holo-note before anything else happens.
  • Talwyn: "..... Fine. We'll take the time to figure out the note. But no matter what, I'm sticking to what I've desided."
  • Buzz: ".... Your a desivise woman. I respect that."
  • Monogram: "Ok, we'll have to exsamin this at Star Command to get a better idea before we do anything."
  • Buzz: "Leave it to me. I have clearence to the lab. The LGMs can decode anything.... Usually."

Star Command

  • Commander Nebula: So, I hear that this person in Ratchet's world committed a graverobbing of Cronk and Zephyr's bodies.
  • LGM #1: Well, they are robots after all, but even then, they can't be repaired that easily, even by us.
  • LGM #2: Totally!
  • Booster: "Didn't.... Didn't you guys used to talk like the ones from the movie based on this?"
  • LGM 3: "Yeah, ever since this show stopped running awhile back, we desided to cut it out with that saying a few words at the time biz. It gets gretting after awhile. We desided to speak like normal people and not alien steriotypes, cause you do NOT see the aliens in the Galactic Federation talking like impressionable morons."
  • Buzz: But can you at least find a way past this holo-note's safety features so we can back-trace the location of it's recording? We suspect it came from Equestria.
  • LGM #1: Oh, of course we can! We are one! (They do some tinkering with the holo-note)
  • Commander Nebula: So, where are your comrades in the Freedom Fighters?
  • Buzz: Even if they are trusted allies, I don't think they are allowed easy access to this lab. Especially with their controversial friend, Captain Qwark here.
  • Commander Nebula: Oh, yeah, I hated that guy.
  • ???: HEY, I CAN HEAR YOU IN THERE, PAL!!
  • Commander Nebula: (Sighs) You couldn't send him home?
  • Buzz: Well, he said he wanted to come with us here, so since we hardly see him, I guess it's best that we give him the chance. Of course, we had to keep a close eye on him.
  • LGM #1: Well, it wasn't easy, but I think we got it.
  • LGM #4: You were right after all. It WAS from Equestria.
  • LGM #5: Yeah, I like that place. I have a whole load of merchandise of them with me. (The other LGMs look at him weird)...I can't help that I'm a brony, there's a LOT of them out there!
  • Commander Nebula: Well, looks like you guys were right.
  • Buzz: Perfect. I'll inform the others.

Later...

  • Major Monogram: "And I thought O.W.C.A. had very strict restrictedness and protocals."
  • Qwark: ".... I been needing to ask.... What does O.W.C.A. mean again?"
  • Monogram: "Organisation without a cool actronim."
  • Qwark: "But, isn't that tecnecally an actronim in of itself?"
  • Monogram: "Yes, but it's not a COOL actronim. In fact, Owca is not even a real word."
  • Qwark: And for that matter, why name it that to begin with? If it ISN'T a cool acronym, doesn't it make it pointless that you named it that anyway?
  • Monogram: I don't know! I'm not the one who founded it, I'm just one of the next commanders of this organization. The one who named it is already dead.
  • Qwark: "Ok, I get it! But, where did the whole, turning animals into fedora hat wearing actrobatic agents that fight generic mad sciencetists thing came from?"
  • Monogram: "That IS a good question. You see, it all started when-"
  • Carl: "Uh sir, I need to remind you that for security reasons, the orgin of why we train animals to become fedora wearing actrobats is strictly classifived, even to trusted allies. Espeically if they have a bit of a controversey and/or a bit of a tendingcy to unintentionally cause trouble."
  • Monogram: "Oh yeah. Thanks for reminding me Carl. Sorry Qwark, O.W.C.A. has a few enemies that would like to use even it's own humble origins against us."
  • Qwark: Well, I am a person that can be trusted with classified secrets, Monogram!
  • Ratchet: (Sighs) Qwark, don't try and convince them, it isn't working.
  • Kirby: Poyo!
  • Buzz: (Comes out of the lab) Well, the LGMs got past the privacy settings, and it's true. It came from Equestria.
  • XR: Great! Saved us a lot of trouble just to finding out the clue involving a picture of a non-Equestrian pony.
  • Talwyn: Then I guess we three are off, then.
  • Carl: Are you sure you want to do this with just Ratchet and Clank, Talwyn? I mean, three might not be enough to protect you from danger.
  • Talwyn: I told you we can handle ourselves. Whoever this person is that resurrected Cronk and Zephyr, it's worth the risk of getting apprehended by his unknown armies if it means I can see them again.
  • Clank: Besides, me and Ratchet are more than enough to protect her.
  • Ratchet: Absolutely. Buzz, you're in charge of the Freedom Fighters while we're gone.
  • Booster: Well, if that's how you want it...then good luck.
  • Kirby: Poyo, poyo, poyo, poyo!! (Grabs Talwyn's leg again)
  • Talwyn: (Sighs) I'm sorry, Kirby, as much as you want to come with us, you're only a baby. Even if you're more than capable of handling a load of enemies, these guys could have technologies you aren't prepared for. You need to stay.
  • Kirby:... (Sheds a tear)
  • Ratchet: Oh, for the love of Pete! Can someone please cheer Kirby up so he doesn't annoy us for the rest of the trip?
  • Carl: I'll do it. (Picks up Kirby)
  • Ratchet:...Why did we even make Kirby a member? He's not that much an 'enemy' of King Dedede as he is a 'friend' to him.
  • Mira: Being a baby doesn't mean he is very smart, Ratchet. He's not that knowledgeable in the concept of relationships with heroes and villains as we are. He treats King Dedede like a frenemy. But we still needed to make him a member just in case his world should be threatened by Nefarious.
  • Talwyn:...Well, I guess we should get a move on.
  • Ratchet: Alright, we'll take Aphelion. Clank, you'll have to sit in the middle.
  • Clank: Oh, dear.

Chapter 2: A Quest Begins

Equestian Space

  • Rachet's ship, Aphelion, is seen heading there.
  • Aphelion: Now entering Equestrian airspace. Estimated touchdown in 2 minutes.
  • Talwyn:... (Ratchet and Clank see that she is wondering to herself)... Guys, you really think that Cronk and Zephyr are alive?
  • Ratchet: That guy sounded very serious on the holo-note. If he knows so much about us through our games, then he's definitely not bluffing.
  • Clank: Yes, I detected no lie in his voice. Those two are indeed alive.
  • Talwyn: Well... I'm just glad they are. After a whole year of being gone, they can finally come back with us.
  • Clank: I'm not so sure if this person will allow them to leave or not. Whoever he is, he must want us for something.
  • Talwyn: But if he IS in Equestria...then how are we going to find them?
  • Ratchet: We'll just ask the ponies here if they've seen anyone with technology like ours. Hopefully, they'll know about where this guy is hiding. (Aphelion appears in Ponyville, and the three are surprised at the sight of Twilight's new castle)...Uh, guys, was that castle always there?
  • Clank: Not that I know of.
  • Talwyn: I have to admit, it's beautiful. (Aphelion lands)
  • Ratchet: (He and the others jump out and all the ponies see them)
  • Pony #1: Hey, it's Ratchet and Clank, those guys from my son's video games!
  • Pony 2: "More then that! They're the guys that helped us out from the Gala mess when Nefarious came here!"
  • Talwyn: "These people, know you?"
  • Clank: "We're more or less celeberties in worlds we aided in halting Nefarious."
  • Talwyn: I see.
  • Ratchet: Let's just talk with them. Uh, hey, everyone...or, uh, every 'pony' in your terms, do you know where we might find someone who brought back some dead robots recently?
  • Pony #1: Nope.
  • Pony #2: Uh-uh.
  • Big Mac: Ee-nope.
  • ???: Hey, it's Ratchet and Clank!
  • Clank:...Ratchet, I think we might've found the Shell Lodgers.
  • Ratchet: (They see Tigress, Po, Icky, Viper, and Lord Shen)...What are you guys doing here?
  • Icky: I think the REAL question would be 'what are YOU doing here'?
  • Lord Shen: And who is that pink alien lady with you?
  • Icky: Oh, that's just Ratchet's sweetheart, Talwyn Apogee. She barely had some time to meet us since we first met these two.
  • Lord Shen: Wait, 'sweetheart'? As in, 'girlfriend'?
  • Icky: Yeah, they've been together since their adventures in the comics.
  • Ratchet: The comics? We had comics?
  • Icky: Uh, yeah, it showed how you defeated that Zogg guy from capturing planets and creating his own galaxy to rule?
  • Ratchet: Oh, yeah, I remember that time.
  • Clank: But to answer your question, we have come because we have whereabouts of this stranger who took the bodies of our old dead friends, Cronk and Zephyr.
  • Lord Shen: Wait, you mean those two robots that I saw in some previews of your games? They're dead?
  • Icky: (Sighs) Shen, I think it's best if you saved the questions for later.
  • Clank: So we came here because the clues lead us straight here.
  • Tigress: And...I guess we should answer your question. You see, we're here because we still have a mess to clean up ever since our last two adventures here.
  • Po: It had something to do with another Keyhole like the one in Berk, and one about this crazy cutie mark communist who almost got raped by a-
  • Ratchet: OKAY, THAT'S THE PART WHERE YOU SHOULD STOP, BECAUSE I'D RATHER NOT KNOW ABOUT THAT!!
  • Talwyn: Well... Do you think you can help us find this person who has Cronk and Zephyr?
  • Po: Sure, I guess we could-
  • Pinkie appears from nowhere!
  • Pinkie: "HEY PO!?"
  • Po: "AGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH!?"
  • Pinkie: "Twilight wants me to tell ya that the building that was hurt by some centuar heartlesseses needs more bricks and-"
  • Pinkie sees Rachet.
  • Pinkie: "Oh hey Mr. Catman! I haven't seen you since the Gala!"
  • Rachet: "Uh, FYI pinkster, not a cat."
  • Pinkie: "But you have ears of a cat and a tail like a cat. How does that NOT make you a cat?"
  • Ratchet: Just because I look like a cat, it doesn't MEAN I'm a cat! Plus, my tail doesn't even LOOK like a cat's tail, well, not TOO much! It has a certain catty pattern, but trust me, that's about it! Physically, it looks more like the tail of an elephant or a gerbil!
  • Lord Shen: Pinkie, please quit the nonsense, and know that these guys are here because someone lead them here.
  • Talwyn: And I think it would be nice if you would help us out.
  • Pinkie: Well, where are you going?
  • Ratchet: We don't know yet.
  • Talwyn: But we suspect that the guy who called us had some traces of technology from our world.
  • Pinkie: Hmm, haven't seen anything like that. OOOH, IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR?!? (She points at Aphelion)
  • Clank: That is the ship we arrived on.
  • Pinkie: Oh, well, in that case, nothing in particular! Toodles! (Zooms away)
  • Talwyn:... Who was that?
  • Tigress: A good friend of ours.
  • Icky: I take it she's never been here before?
  • Talwyn: Well, I wasn't here during your Gala mess. I was only on a business trip in my world with the Planetary Defense Force with Cronk and Zephyr.
  • Clank: Would you guys mind taking us to your other members?
  • Viper: Well, I don't see why not.

Later...

  • Boss Wolf: "So, let me get this straight. A stranger grave-robbed the graves of two of your closet buds, intentionally left a note and an almost sudtle clue, inviting you guys to come for him cause, he's reviving those two?"
  • Clank: "We know it sounds understandingly far-fetched and bordered on the "too-good-to-be-true" catagory, but I didn't detect any lies, so it's possable he's legit."
  • Missing Link: "And you're sure it's not a sceme by Nefarious or any of his not completely stupid members of Team Nefarious?"
  • Rachet: "Trust me, the LGMs would've found something like a Nefarious symbol or a trace of his handy work if it was him. Also, it's been traced to here, and it's safe to assume Nefarious has nothing to do with this at all."
  • Sandy: "Well even so, ya sure it's a good idea to come alone? Even if it ain't that nimrod, it could be someone equily dangerious."
  • Rachet: "Trust me, we're ready for anything dished out against us, but it's for Talwyn. Those two are asentually her wacky adopted non-gay fathers."
  • Mushu: "Ok, ok, if it's THAT impourent to ya, we ain't gonna be in the way."
  • Lord Shen: "But under the condition some of us are allowed to come with you, just in case if this thing is too good to be as advertised."
  • Clank: "Well, thing is, the note speficly asked for only Rachet, myself and Talwyn to come."
  • Icky: "Ahh, but did he say to not bring your friends?"
  • Clank: "Well, tecnecally, no, but I don't think he nessersarly need to speficly state to not bring others. He thought we would be trusting enough to only do what we're asked."
  • Spongebob: "Well, I can understand you don't want to be like you don't trust him, but you also don't want to look like your not careful neither. That could send a bad message for your real enemies to pull off simular stunts and into thinking that you can be easily trick if it concerns something personal to you."
  • Rachet: "Look, we aren't distrusting him or trusting him in too great amounts here. We just don't wanna look like we're here for trouble either."
  • Shifu: "If your sure he isn't a hostile force, then it still wouldn't hurt to be cautious. This being would understand being cautious. It never hurts to be careful against the unknown."
  • Talwyn: "They're not gonna leave us alone either way, Rachet. I think we're better off going with it."
  • Ratchet: Well, fine, if that's what you want. We can't have THAT many people coming, so should we do 7 people?
  • Patrick: Make it 9!
  • Ratchet: 8!
  • Patrick: 7! Take it or leave it!
  • Clank: That's the number we suggested, Patrick.
  • Patrick: Oh, forget the argument, let's just go with 7!
  • Clank:... Okay, 7!
  • Lord Shen: I think I have an idea on who should go. All in favor of Icky going, say Aye!
  • All Lodgers: AYE!!
  • Icky: AW, COME ON, WHY IS IT ALWAYS ME?!?
  • Lord Shen: Because you're annoying and insignificant, and because you're good for comedy, and because I'll pummel you if you don't!
  • Icky: Uh... Why else?
  • Lord Shen: NOW, PREHISTORIC ONE!!!
  • Tigress: He does make a good point, Icky. You did accidentally knock down an unstable house yesterday. We don't need anymore accidents.
  • Icky: Hmmph! Fine! But if I get disintegrated, I'm blaming you!
  • Lord Shen: Who's next?
  • Skipper: My team will go.
  • Iago: I'll go, too.
  • Lord Shen: And... Who's the last one?...
  • Donkey: ME, ME, ME, ME!! PICK ME, ME, ME!!
  • Shrek: No, Donkey, all the chosen people are small enough to avoid detection, so it should technically mean that a small person should go.
  • Donkey: Like who?... (Everyone looks at Fidget)
  • Fidget:... What? Is there something in my teeth? I- OH, YOU'RE NOT SERIOUS!! Aren't you a little antsy about having me? Don't I make mistakes?
  • Shifu: Enough to anger even me, yes. But Icky's prone to making mistakes as well, so it's pretty much fitting.
  • Fidget:... Alright!
  • Clank: Forgiving my skepticism, but shouldn't there be one more who should be a leading figure?
  • Lord Shen: Aren't you three worthy leaders?
  • Clank: Yes, but let us not ignore the possibility of us getting in trouble, and you guys needing to rescue us. And that might require a leading figure.
  • Shifu: (Sighs) I'll do it. I'm just as worthy to lead a spying team as I am of leading the Jade Palace.
  • Ratchet: Well, I guess we're all set.
  • Talwyn: You guys do know that the Aphelion can only carry 2 people, right?
  • Tigress: And our van is too large, and can be noticed.
  • Shifu: Then I guess there's only one logical choice...

Later...

  • Aphelion: (The Lodgers are piled up on Aphelion) Are you sure that I can carry all this weight?
  • Ratchet: They're light-weight, Aphelion, you'll be fine.
  • Aphelion: What about the ones that can fly, like the bat?
  • Fidget: Uh, actually, I can't- (He slips off the ship, and flaps out of control) AAAHHH, I CAN'T FLY!! I CAN'T FLYYYYYY!! (Aphelion retrieves Fidget before he hits the ground)...
  • Aphelion: What about the birds?
  • Icky: We don't have jets on our asses, you know, we can't fly as fast as you!
  • Aphelion: "Ugh.... Oh all right. But I require minual complaints if I get encumbered because of this."
  • The Ship is seen heading torwords the Badlands.
  • Icky: "Uh... Small concern here, uh.... Why are we heading to the Badlands?"
  • Clank: "It's where the location of the messge originated from."
  • Skipper: "Well it's fair to warn ya. The place in infested with exsiled mythical beasts and giant horseshoe crab monsters camoplaughed as the local landscape. Should we have to land, expect having to deal with them."
  • Clank: "We appresiate the warning. But hostle natives and fauna are no strangers to us. They'll be handled like we handed many others."
  • Icky: "Well, I think we'll be fine as long as we don't encounter new critters."
  • Private: "Uh.... Guys? Please tell me I'm hallusinating, cause I see FLYING NECROMORTHIC VULTURES HEADING TORWORDS US!?"
  • Screehes are heard as Skulled and Feathered Vulture Creatures are seen!
  • Icky: "Aw, shit! Gilda and Trixie told me about those things! They're Skull Vultures! They're very terratoral and don't like to see things NOT them flying in the skies of the badlands! From what I heard, they're really nasty-ass buzzards!"
  • Talwyn: "Well they picked a bad time to mess with us!"
  • Rachet: "Aphelion, prepare the defence shields!"
  • Aphelion: Defense shields activated! (Ratchet fires the cannons at the Skull Vultures, taking all of them down)... Well, that was much easier than I thought. We didn't even need my shields... Oh, I spoke too soon. My radar is indicating several aerial targets inbound.
  • Iago: Please tell me it's not more of those skeleton birds! (More Skull Vultures appear) Me and my big beak!
  • Aphelion: This defense shield won't withstand these creatures, and with all this weight on me, I don't think I'll be able to fight properly. I recommend getting the Lodgers to safe grounds.
  • Talwyn: I don't think there ARE any safe grounds. (They see that the ground is crawling with monsters)
  • Fidget: Uh-oh!
  • Private: WHAT'LL WE DO?!?
  • Skipper: ".... We pray."
  • A Big enough Skull Vulture spanks Aphelion down ignoring the sheilds as our heroes scream!
  • Icky's voice: "FUCK OUR LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIFES?!"
  • The Ship crashes on the ground!

Hours later.

  • The Heroes were unconjustus.
  • A Group of Battle damaged Hornets, Nefarious Troopers, and Qui Drones arrived.
  • A Leader Nefarious Trooper with Buzz Saws investigate the area.
  • N.T. Leader: ".... I, don't think they are even alive."
  • ???: "Well good!?"
  • A Hornet with a lightsaber arm attacthment and a robotic face came in.
  • Hornet: "If they couldn't survive against a bunch of bony buzzards, I doubt they would be useful for our master."
  • N.T. Leader: "Now, Bradly K89, you know the Reviver needs them. He can't accomplish his dreams without them."
  • The Hornet "Bradly" growls.
  • Bradly: ".... Fine.... But if they attack us, it's on you, Darwin KL0."
  • Darwin KL0 the N.T. Leader: "I assure you, The Reviver knows what he is doing. Everyone. Proceed the extraction progress."

Later.

  • The Heroes are laying on beds in a strange infirmery room.
  • Icky was heard snoring.
  • Icky: "No mommy, I wanted the pink llama."
  • Ratchet: (He is the first to wake up)... Clank, get the lights, would you?... (Realizes where he is)... CLANK?!? WHERE ARE WE?!?
  • Clank: I do not know. At least we are all alive.
  • Ratchet: But... Where are the others?
  • Talwyn: Ratchet? Clank? Is that you?
  • Ratchet: Talwyn, you're okay, too!
  • Shifu: It would appear that we had crashed and got caught.
  • Fidget: But... Where are we?
  • Iago: (He looks out the window)... Is it me, or has the Badlands become a giant cave?
  • Skipper:... We ARE in a giant cave!
  • Kowalski: I can't get a clear view of where we are! (The camera eases off the window the penguins are looking through, and it is shown that they are inside a large space cruiser)...
  • Ratchet:... How do we get out of here?
  • Talwyn: I don't know. They've confiscated my blaster and my jetpack.
  • Ratchet: AND all my weapons and equipment.
  • ???: Oh, goodie, you're awake! (They see Darwin the broken Nefarious Trooper)
  • Skipper: A NEFARIOUS TROOPER?!?
  • Ratchet: I KNEW THIS WAS NEFARIOUS' DOING!!
  • Darwin KL0: No, no, it's not what you think! I don't work for him anymore! I work for the one that sent you here.
  • Ratchet: Likely story, you bucket of bolts!
  • Clank: He is telling the truth, Ratchet. He seems rather beaten up and damaged.
  • Darwin KL0: I am Darwin KL0, and I have been sent to bring you to my new superior.
  • Private: Jolly good, we're getting out of here.
  • Darwin KL0: Actually, not you Lodgers. He was very clear about having just Ratchet, Clank, and Talwyn.
  • Icky: You... You mean we can't come out?!? WHY THE HELL NOT?!?
  • Darwin KL0: That info is on a need-to-know basis. Now you three, come with me... (Opens the cells of Ratchet, Clank, and Talwyn) We have a surprise for you.
  • Ratchet: What about our weapons and equipment?
  • Darwin KL0: You'll get them back in good time. Right now, we need to make sure you're prepared.
  • Clank: Um... Prepared for what?
  • Darwin KL0: You'll see. Now come with me. (They leave)
  • Icky: YOU SON OF A BITCH, LET US OUT OF HERE!!! WE REFUSE TO LET THOSE THREE OUT OF OUR SIGHT!!!
  • Iago: Save the screaming, Icky, it isn't cutting the mustard.
  • Icky: Dammit!

Later...

  • ???: (As Ratchet, Clank, Talwyn, and Darwin KL0 walk down a lab as familiar voices are heard) Electross done told us that some guests were comin' for a visit. (Chuckles) Says they're his personal idols, if you can believe it.
  • ???: I just still can't believe that guy was of one of our most hated races! I don't think I can trust that darn guy!
  • Talwyn: (Gasps) Those voices! (Runs to the room, and bursts inside to see Cronk and Zephyr)
  • Cronk/Zephyr: TALWYN?!?
  • Talwyn: CRONK!! ZEPHYR!!! (Hugs the both of them as she sheds tears) I just can't believe you're alive!
  • Ratchet: Well, what do you know? The two ARE alive.
  • Zephyr: You're the guests that the person that resurrected us was referring to?
  • Clank: The 'person' claims that he kept track of us through our video games.
  • Cronk: (Chuckles) Well, how do you like that? A Craggy-mite admires a Lombax.
  • Ratchet: Wait...did you say 'Cragmite'?
  • Cronk: Well, actually, I mis-pronounced it, but yes.
  • Ratchet:...I don't believe you!
  • ???: Well, believe it, Lombax! (The silhouetted figure appears from the shadows, and he finally reveals himself as a Cragmite)
  • Cragmite: Welcome to my humble abode, Ratchet and Clank!
  • Ratchet: But...but I thought all the Cragmites were banished when we last defeated Emperor Tachyon!
  • Cragmite: "Well, that's true, but I'm not what you think I am. I am not at all like the false emperor. In more ways, (reveils what's inside is cloak) then one. A simple act of refusing to do a terrorable crime, turn me into an abomination."
  • Rachet: "LIKELY STORY BUG FACE?! IF I STILL HAD MY WEAPONS, I GO RYNO ON YA?! TELL ME WHAT'S GOING ON, AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THIS INNOSENT PLANET!? ON TOP OF THAT, YOUR ARRESTED FOR GRAVE ROBBING AND MESSING WITH CONTRABAND TEC?!"
  • A Lightsaber points at Rachet's face! It belonged to Bradly.
  • Bradly: "I knew these outsider scum couldn't be trusted! I wished those stupid creatures did a better job killing you! NOBODY THREATENS MY FATHER AND THE REVIVER?! He brings back your junky old warbots, AND THIS HOW YOU REPAY HIM?!"
  • Clank: ".... Pardon my rudeness, but, why do you have a face, Hornet?"
  • Bradly: "MY FATHER GAVE IT TO ME, SHORTSTOCK?!"
  • Trisha appeared.
  • Trisha: "Bb-b-b-b-b-Bradly, calm down! Your gonna prevoked him!"
  • Bradly: "STAY OUT OF IT, TRISHA! I KNOW WHAT I AM DOING!? HE'S THREATENING FATHER AND-"
  • Rachet: "I HAVE A REASON FOR IT?! YOUR FATHER BELONGS TO THE SAME RACE THAT HURT PEOPLE, AND THE SAME RACE THAT BIRTHED THE MOST DISPICABLE PIECE OF SPACE TRASH IN EXISTENCE?!"
  • Bradly: "HOW DARE YOU COMPAIR FATHER TO THAT MIDGET IDIOT?! THAT CRAGMITE, DIDN'T HAD THE KINDNESS TO BRING BACK ROBOTS NOBODY WANTED TO TOUCH BECAUSE OF WHO WE USED TO SERVE?!"
  • Rachet: "THAT'S BECAUSE YOUR CONTRABAND TEC, BUDDY?! I.E., ILLEGAL?! AS IT, PEOPLE GO TO JAIL FOR TOUCHING YOU?!"
  • Bradly: "YOU WANT TO SETTLE THIS IN A FIGHT, LOMBAX?! YOUR ABOUT AS PRETENDIOUS AND SELF-RIGHTIOUS AS YOUR DEAD FATHER?!"
  • Rachet: "OH THAT IS IT YOU POORLY PUT TOGATHER SCRAP METAL!? GET READY TO-"
  • Cragmite: "ENOUGH?! (Echos)"
  • This got everyone's attention.
  • Cragmite: "Bradly, behave yourself. The Young Lombax obviously needs to understand me better. Getting violent only goes nowhere. Understood?"
  • Bradly growled.
  • Cragmite: "..... Darwin. Exchort Bradly somewhere else. He needs to vent his anger.... Again."
  • Darwin: "Alchourse, Reviver."
  • Darwin takes Bradly away, who stares angerly to Rachet still.
  • Talwyn: "Rachet, calm down. There's no need for drama."
  • Rachet: "(Sighs).... Ok, Cragmite. SPILL IT?! Who are you, what are you doing here with contraband tec and two of our friends, and more impourently, WHAT, IS GOING ON HERE?!"
  • Cragmite: That's what I intend to tell you three. Come with me, and I shall explain everything....
  • Cronk: (To Bradly) Whipper-snapper! (Bradly gets angry, but is stopped by Trisha)
  • Trisha: "Bradly, don't! You done enough!"
  • Bradly scrowled.

Chapter 3: An Endling-to-Endling Talk/Trouble in the Blooms

Ship's Command.

  • A Throwne room like area is seen.
  • Ratchet: Alright, now that we're right where you want us... Would you mind explaining why you brought our friends back, and why aren't you with the rest of your kind?
  • Cragmite: "I'll explain all in a tale... The Tragic tale.... Of Electross."

Flashback...

  • (Cragmite (Electross)): I was once just like the rest of the Cragmites out there. I fought you Lombaxes during the Great War, and...
  • (Talwyn): Wait, wasn't the Great War eons away from today? How did you stay alive for all these years?
  • (Electross): Look at me! I'm a cybernetic abomination with tec that technically keeps me alive! Anyway, while during the Great War, I soon began developing a pacifistic view of what was happening. I felt that, since my kind did some nasty things such as destroying a few innocent species, depleting the resources of certain planets, and being an extreme pain to the Lombaxes, I felt that the Cragmites didn't need to be fearful in order to be recognized. But none of my people wanted to have anything to do with my beliefs. They continued fighting the Lombaxes no matter what. Then came the day that I was tasked with something very simple: destroy a Lombax colony on Planet Sargasso. We had word that it was one of the few places where plans for a weapon were being created to stop us.
  • (Ratchet): You mean the Dimensionator!
  • (Electross): Yes. But when I was ordered to destroy it... I refused. I stood by my word that war wasn't what we wanted. But my race was not all that forgiving. They put me on trial, accusing me of treason and 'redemption to the enemy', which was viewed by my kind as a sign of weakness. And so, as punishment, I was not only exiled from Reepor, but they turned me into a cybernetic abomination because I 'was using my heart and body wrong'.
  • (Talwyn): Yeesh, I hate it when races have cruel punishments like that. It's bad enough that Agorians cut off the hands of those who steal or use weapons for good, but Cragmites turn people into monsters for doing the right thing. It really sickens me.
  • (Electross): I know. But on the bright side, this cybernetic composition gave me immortality, allowing me to live longer and longer. And so, I watched and heard as the Cragmites continued to wage war on the galaxy, and I just couldn't shake the fact that the Lombaxes were forced into exiling them to Dimension X2-49 with the Dimensionator. I was doomed to be forever alone, with no friends to make since everyone I saw looked at me and saw the sins that my race had caused. They threatened to report me to the Lombaxes, and I was barely able to avoid detection. I even tried to find a hidden area to hide out on my homeworld, but it was now reduced to a wasteland. No life was present except for the remaining wildlife and plants that inhabited it. But luckily, I was able to find one thing from my planet: a space cruiser. I was able to repair the ship, and I drove it away from my worlds, avoiding any Galactic Defense Forces that would find me on radars....

Present

  • Electross:... And that's when the ship ran out of fuel and crash-landed here on Equestria. The ponies here assumed that the crash was caused by a meteorite because that Hayfield 64 place covered it up to avoid widespread panic. I was able to hide the ship before they were able to claim it. I had turned this ship into my home ever since. And with a large space inside the ship ready for use, I built a city big enough to house some inhabitants. While I kept the city repaired for a few centuries, I was finally able to gain some inhabitants in the form of robots, even the ones from villain teams.
  • Ratchet:... You do realize that these robots are contraband technology, right?
  • Electross: Of course I do! Why else would I be hiding in this underground cave outside of the fact that I needed to keep it safe from Hayfield 64?
  • Clank: Well, I am sorry to hear that you wanted to change your race, Electross, but I am still curious at why you called us here.
  • Electross: Because I need your help. Since me and Ratchet are the last members of our race to be residing in our worlds, and the UUniverses for that matter, I feel like we should help each other out.
  • Talwyn:... You sent us here... To ask us a favor?
  • Electross: Not just a favor, one that will allow us to see our races again. We can still make things right around here, Ratchet! I know just the right tools to make sure that our races can no longer be bothersome to each other. After I played your last game, I took the liberty of retrieving the duplicate Dimensionator that Vendra and Neftin created. But-
  • Clank: You have the other Dimensionator?
  • Electross: Well... Of course. But before I can use it, I need an Equestrian artifact known as the Jewel of Souls. It is said that it is known to not just bring back and restore the souls of the dead, but it can purify anyone, dead or alive. I intend to use this artifact to purify the hearts of my people, and ensure that they make a good relationship with the Lombaxes. Soon, Ratchet, our two races will be in an alliance with each other, and it with our combined potentials, we can make our worlds a better place! All I ask of you two is to retrieve the Jewel for me so I can make it all possible. If you succeed... You might finally have the chance to see your race again.
  • Rachet: "... I, don't know what to say, Electross, was it? Your obviously not like Taciyon at all, and not just physically. And what your doing sounds good on paper, but, how do you plan to make the Cragmites go through it with? I'm not sure they'll be nice enough to stand still for you to use that jewel, let alone listen to you cause of... Obvious reasons."
  • Electross: "That's why I plan to reslove such an issue, by placing the jewel inside the mainframe and powershorce of the second dimentioner, that way, when the Cragmites come through, the jewel's power can purify them. That way, they won't end up being, their usual selfs apawn release."
  • Clank: "Small inquriy, Electross. Where exactly, is the Jewel of Souls?"
  • Electross: "Based on legends, it is inside a temple in an underworld like area called "Tartarus", guarded by a great bird the natives called, "A Hellfire Phenox". I would've simply gone there myself, but... Well, I'm not in the position to bring, attention to myself, obviousy. Even though the badlands is, isloated, with the group encharged of Hayfield 64, I rather not risk it."
  • Rachet: "Ok, just tell us how to find an enterence to it, and we'll handle the rest."
  • Electross: "Tartarus, in legend, has many hidden enterences in Equestia. I have pin-pointed one in the badlands that is the least secure cause, well, the leader of the planet, Celestia, felt that the native fauna and the hostile exsiles are security enough tecnecally, so there's no need to bring stronger protections."
  • Rachet: "No prob. We and the lougers will-"
  • Electross: "Young Lombax, I have to stop you there. I know I may've not been spefic about just wanting you and not additional help, but it's obvious I have to be more clear here. The only reason I wanted you is, cause your a fellow endling. You would understand me. The Lougers, as well meaning as they are, they succombed to the unclear controversey of the jewel of souls about it being, unstablely powerful. They, might not understand us any better."
  • Rachet: "Well, if you explained it to them like to me, they'll surely-"
  • Electross: "It would only do so little. They would still be afraid of the unproven risks. Please Rachet, I only want you, Clank, Cronk and Zephyr and Talwyn to handle this journry. I promise I'll keep the misfits entertained and distracted here. Can I, have the vow of a fellow endling?"
  • Rachet: ".... Ok, if, you felt the lougers wouldn't be able to get it, then, I'll, see what my team can do on our own."
  • Electross: "Thank you Rachet. Darwin will instruct you where the Tartarus enterence in the Badlands resides. It's best to pay attention to him so you'll avoid un-nessersary visits to exsile camps and bring, unwanted attention. Let's just say, I'm not the only one who wants the Jewel of Souls. Darwin will explain in his study. Your all dismissed."
  • Rachet and friends left.

Infirmery.

  • Icky: "THIS SUCKS, THIS SUCKS, THIS SUCKS, THIS SUCKS?! WHO KNOWS WHOEVER'S BEHIND THIS IS DOING TO RACHET!? WE SHOULD'VE BEEN MORE FORCEFUL TO THESE HUNK OF JUNKS!?"
  • Shifu: "Sounding hostile to these machines is not gonna make them want to open these gates! If we espire to earn their trust, we must maintain a calm and peaceful demeanor!"
  • Skipper: "And how sucky is the fact that they even took the Spy Bug from us so we can't keep tabs on what's going on either!?"
  • Iago: "Look, I'm sure eventally things will light up. I bet right now, the leader of this, wherever we are, is gonna come through that door and say-"
  • Electross opens the door with Bradly and Trisha by his side.
  • Electross: "Good news, friends of Rachet. Your all free to tour Electross city."
  • Iago: "Well that was quick."
  • Electross: "Bradly, open the gates."
  • Bradly: "I don't trust those misfits. They aren't even suppose to be here!"
  • Electross: "Bradly, I do NOT want this arguement now! They are guests, and your treating them like they're like those exsiles running around the badlands!"
  • Bradly: "THEY'RE THE REASON WHY MOST OF THE ROBOTS YOU REVIVED ARE HERE?! YOU REALLY WANNA RISK THEM HURTING THESE MACHINES AGAIN!?"
  • Electross: "BRADLY ENOUGH!? IF RACHET TRUSTS THEM, THEN I TRUST THEM?! THEY LEARNED FROM DARWIN THAT YOU, AND THE OTHER HORNETS, NEFARIOUS TROOPERS AND QUI DRONES THAT YOUR NOT A THREAT TO THEM!? NOW STOP ACTING LIKE ONE AND RELEASE THEM, OR YOU'RE GROUNDED AND WILL BE SENT TO THE BRIG AGAIN!?"
  • Trisha: "Bradly, just, just do it please!"
  • Bradly: (Shrugs) Fine! But if they do something sneaky, then their heads are mine to make into TROPHIES!! (Unlocks the cells)
  • Icky: Pal, you need some serious anger management!
  • Shifu: Alright, sir, what did you want with Ratchet and Clank?
  • Electross: "It's a need-to-know basis."
  • Icky: Why? Why is it so much on a 'need-to-know basis'? Are you afraid that we can't handle the truth, huh?
  • Bradly: (Activates his lightsaber arm) YOU WILL NOT ASK ANY MORE QUESTIONS ABOUT THOSE TWO, BIRD!! SAY ANOTHER WORD ABOUT IT, AND I'LL SHOVE THIS LIGHTSABER SO FAR UP YOUR ASS, I'LL TURN YOU INTO A POPSICLE!!
  • Electross: BRADLY!! I said enough! This will be your last chance, behave or it's the brig!
  • Bradly:... (Shrugs, and deactivates the lightsaber).
  • Electross: "You, have to mind Bradly. He has, socal troubles."
  • Kolwalski: "Not all that surprising from a machine meant to create physical harm."
  • Electross: "Anyway. I'm here to give you a tour of this magnifisent city I buildt in this ship. It may be, somewhat junky, but it's an interesting city."
  • Private: "Uh, just one question though.... What are you exactly? I know your a cyborg, but a cyborg of what?"
  • Electross: Well, it sort of a long story.

Later...

  • Icky: So, you're a Cragmite, which is/was a race that Ratchet has had to battle in the past, who's made a living as the ruler of this run-down city full of contraband robots, and downright hates his race because of how much they did to you?
  • Electross: Yep. And whatever I had instructed Ratchet and Clank to do, it would be best if you didn't know about it.
  • Icky: Why-
  • Iago: Icky, please, let's not piss this hornet guy off again.
  • Shifu: We do appreciate the escort across this place, but I don't think we need one. We're just here to protect Ratchet and Clank.
  • Electross: I insist. I know you're confused and want to see what's going on, but I assure you everything is fine. I'm the only Cragmite in Ratchet's world who has a brain, so I decided 'screw my people, I want to be someone different'. So I founded this place, and with citizens that only need fuel to survive, and with others there to fix them, I am forever making a better life. Though being secluded has certain disadvantages, I'd digress since people take one look at me and go 'AAHHH, A CRAGMITE, KILL IT UNTIL IT'S NOTHING BUT BUG PASTE!!' And most of them remember Ratchet's games.
  • Icky: Wow, what a bunch of jackasses!
  • Electross: Well, here we are! (They see a large city where lots of robots of all kinds dwell)
  • Skipper: "Well, this place is almost a utopia. Could use ALOT more renovations, though."
  • Bradly growled.
  • Electross: "I'd offer to give you dinner, but, since this a civilisation that only needs fuel for subdencenece, I really kinda can't offer much."
  • Icky: "Then how the heck are you still alive without food?"
  • Electross: "... My people took away my stomich and give me a stomich-like device that filter-feeds and makes annoying beeping sounds."
  • The beeping joke from the Fairy Oddparents job episode was heard.
  • Electross: ".... Like that."
  • Icky: "Doesn't that get annoying?"
  • Electross: "You have no idea, espeically when I try to sleep. Worse part is, it's inside me, and even then, it was not designed to have an off-switch!"
  • Iago: "Well, for curiousity's sake, where exactly did you managed to encounter these robots?"
  • Electross: "Oh... I see you haven't reckindised them as the unfortunate robots that were forced to help the likes of Nefarious and Qui. Darwin was among the invadtion force during this event called "The Grand Galloping Gala", as was Bradly, and poor Trisha was among the Qui drones that were with Qui during when she tampered with those odd plants."
  • Shifu: "I see. Your a recyclist. In alien culture, a recyclist is a traveler and vagabond that revitalised fallen tec to make them suit their needs."
  • Electross: "Well, almost. Except I don't travel and I'm more then a vagabond. These mechines looked up to me. They refered me as "The Reviver". Hence why I am refered as "Electross the Reviver"."
  • Icky: "Question, uh, why give these deadly killbots personalities?"
  • Bradly growls.
  • Electross: "Well, because I want them to be more then just battlebots and foot soldiers for aimeless fanactics and despots. I chose Darwin to be leading scout leader and my personal right hand man... Generaly speaking. Bradly and Trisha I felt the most sympathic, though I feel sympathic for all the machines. I give them what an assemly line never does.... A father. Trisha is shy, and cautious, and Bradly.... Well, you saw his little quirks. But he means well. It's the first time he has anyone who sees him more then extendable fodder or contraband tec. He also doesn't feel sure about introdusing strangers here, especaily if they're the ones who... Prosicute these robots because what they were originally meant to do. He's just, afraid you people plan to arrest me for messing with contraband robots, or the simple act of grave robbing for that matter."
  • Rico was holding handcuffs, but quickly gulps them up!
  • Electross: "But I ensure you I am not up to anything illegal.... Well, intentionally. I promise the robots here haven't harmed any organic.... Well, at least, nothing innosent. We had some trouble with the badland exsilers once or twice. They are after the Cragmite tec trapped in the ship, as well these robots that just want a new life."
  • Skipper: "Well why wouldn't they? Your people were asentually bug versons of the Grox! What baddy wouldn't want to get their mitts on Cragmite tec?"
  • Electross: "Worry not. Bradly has quite an infamous reputation to even the most infamous of the exsilers of the badlands. Alot of them had grown to avoid us ever since... Though, there is still, one, persistent group lead by a self-proclaimed Bandit King named Toron. But we haven't heard from them in weeks. It makes me reliefed, but worried at the same time cause, that group is unpredictable."
  • Icky: "Pfft! How bad could this Toron be?"
  • Electross: ".... How well are you lougers familier with the creatures known as, Minotaurs?"
  • Icky: ".... Your point?"
  • Electross: "Well, Toron, is a Minotaur who leads a series of orcs, goblins, rouge centaurs and sayters, give or take a rock golum. Now, Toron has recently accused me of going after a powerful artifact because I so happened to be reshearching this area. I have a bit of a hapit of studying the underappresiated majustic beauty of rocky areas. Now, Toron has mistaken me of going after a particularly powerful jewel, but really it's an excuse to harrass me because he's really after my poor robotic citizens."
  • Skipper: "Well if he's really being a problem for ya, we'll take care of him."
  • Electross: "No need! He's, not as of yet had attacked us."
  • Shifu: "True, but we'll stay here and protact this place from him just in case. We'll be ready should he deside to attack."
  • Electross: "Oh, thank you for the generious offer, but again, he hasn't attacked us for months, so, it's unlikely he'll come back."
  • Shifu: "That's the problem with Bandits. One is never able to predict when they strike."

Darwin's office.

  • Darwin: "Ok, so, Master Rachet, are you ready for me to inform you the safest ways to reach the Tartarus enterence in the Badlands?"
  • Rachet: "Ok Darwin. Shoot. But uh, not litterally! Just in cause what I said would trigger any old programmings Electross is still working on."
  • Darwin: "Don't worry. Firstly, I'm not a Nefarious Trooper with gun capabilities, and secondly, Electross has adiquitly removed my hostile programs. Your among a friend. Now, shall we begin."
  • Cronk: "Dagnabit. I hated geograpfictry."
  • Talwyn: It's 'geography', Cronk. Plus, Darwin is doing all the work.
  • Darwin: Okay, like we've said before, the Jewel of Souls is heavily guarded in Tartarus in a temple and by the Hellfire Phoenix. The safest way to get to it is through the Southeast portion of the area. But be warned, the place is crawling not just with the many exiled marauders that dwell across that area and creatures refered to as "Landscape Crabs", they're generally giant horseshoe crabs with rocks on them by the way, as well as those Skull Vultures, but it's also guarded by a few... Questionable choices. There are 6 demon vultures and a small green idiot who check up on that place every week. And since it's that time of the week, we'd better watch out for them.
  • Ratchet: Hmm, exile marauders, Giant Horseshoe crabs, Skull Vultures, demon vultures, and a green idiot? Anything else?
  • Darwin: Well... I might have to warn you about the most powerful guardian of Tartarus, a three-headed dog called Cerberus.
  • Ratchet: THREE HEADS?!? Wow, that sounds like something hard to take down.
  • Darwin: And indeed It is. It can rip you apart like the animal it is, even with your incredible skills.
  • Ratchet: Oh, don't worry, it's nothing my RYNO V can't handle.
  • Darwin: Well, here's the thing, even with such a powerful weapon, Cerberus can just smack it out of your grip like it was nothing. It's hide, while having sweet spots that only a trusted person knows how to get to, is incredibly thick.
  • Zephyr: Yeah, that thing is strong, alright! I've seen one of Electross' robots try take that durn thing down before in a recorded holo-video. All that was left was a couple of gears and a bolt.... And he was carryin' nothin' but a Splitter Rifle, as much of a punch that thing could bring to a poor varmint's eye!
  • Ratchet: I know, I've wielded one before.
  • Darwin: So it's best that this creature is to be avoided at all costs. Don't let ANY of the security even whistle for it. Once it's called, there's NO stopping it!
  • Ratchet: Oooookay, then! So... Where's our weapons and equipment?
  • Darwin: Electross keeps all weapons inside a spare armory vault. Come with me, and I shall give them to you so you can begin...

Armory

  • Darwin: (Comes across a vault, and turns on the lock)
  • Voice: Password, please!
  • Darwin: (Speaks in an alien language)
  • Voice: Password accepted. (The vault opens and shows Ratchet's Omniblasters, his Cryomine Glove and Fusion Grenade Glove, his Alpha Disruptor, Warmonger, Plasma Striker, RYNO V, Swingshot, Hoverboots, Omniwrench, and all his gadgets, as well as Talwyn's blaster and jetpack)
  • Ratchet: Ah, thank God!
  • Darwin: How do you even carry all those things, anyway?
  • Ratchet: My nav unit comes with a warp-unit that stores all my weapons and equipment. (Grabs each weapon, and stores them inside the warp-unit)
  • Talwyn: (Retrieves her blaster, and puts her jet-pack back on) And I'm at least glad to have these back.
  • Clank: Do I still have my adjustments, Darwin?
  • Darwin: Of course. Removing that stuff would take some time, and not quick enough before you woke up.
  • Ratchet: Well, I guess we should get started.
  • Zephyr: Yes, let's put those durn fools in their place!
  • Cronk: Lock and load! (Cocks his gun)
  • Darwin: "One more thing though. Look out for a Minotaur "Bandit King" named Toron leading a particularly nasty group of Badland Exsiles. As Electross may've informed you, he's not the only one seeking the jewel. Be careful."
  • Rachet: "Don't worry. It should be Toron who should be looking out for us. Compaired to the people I fought, a cheap exsiler like him is nothing."
  • Darwin: "Try not to underestimate him reguardless. He has grown an unfortunate understanding of tecknowagey, ironicly thanks to our presence here, and has every intention to try and force our people to serve him, as well as to use Electross's knowledge of the Jewel's location to misuse it to grant himself immortality. Should he know your after the jewel as well, he's bound to seek you all out."
  • Zephyr: "Ha! Let the darn desperado try! I may be out of date comepaired to those shinier new warbots everyone has these days, but dagnapit, I still got it!"
  • Ratchet: Okay, then. Let's get started....

Meanwhile...

  • ???: (At a secluded camp site, a few satyrs, centaurs, orcs, and goblins are seen in a market-like town, and one large hut is seen) What is the status on Electross, Dil? (A small satyr that looks like Phil appears in the room)
  • Dil the Satyr: Oh, our spies have confirmed that Electross' little quest has been completed, sir. The famed Ratchet and Clank have arrived.
  • ???: Excellent! (Appears from the shadows as a large Minotaur with long hair, blue tattoos on his chest, green and blue eyes, a golden right horn, and some spiked gloves. This was Toron) The moment we've been waiting for is nigh! Anything else that I need to know about?
  • Dil: Well, sir, our spies have also seen that...well...the famous Shell Lodge Squad is there as well.
  • Toron: WHAT?!? THEY'RE HERE OF ALL PEOPLE?!?
  • Dil: Oh, don't worry, sir, they're only small. Nothing you can't handle, right?... Right?...
  • Toron: "DO NOT, UNDERESTIMATE THEM, DIL!? Even when in a small number, they can wreck serious shit?! Who's in the small group?!"
  • Dil: "Well, nothing that looks too serious. It's just two flying birds, one esiecally ugly, 4 penguins, and a small bat. I think the only threat is that big-eared raccoon thing that looks like he's a martical artist."
  • Toron: "I heard of him! He's Shifu! But don't be quick to see the others as minor! I heard the ugly bird fought against an evil racist tyrant of his same race well! The Parrot stood up against his own former master, the bat, even crippled, stood against a giant butler monstrosity, and I heard how surprisingly dangerious those penguins are! They aren't a joke dispite being occationally funny! But let's at least be glad the groupd doesn't included the likes of the former Dark Cynder and that genisideal Peacock! I heard those two are a litteral nightmare to fight against!"
  • Dil: "Well, I think it's likely those lougers don't know jack squat what Electross wants. I'm thinking, if the lougers know what that Electross wants-"
  • Toron: "It's likely he convinced them that I'm nothing but a theven loonatic who's making shit up just as an excuse to try and get his robots! And his violent Hornet son Bradly is SURE to keep us from endangering his "father's" plans by trying to say otherwise! We have no shot to wreck Electross' plan like that!"
  • Dil: "Well, it's not like we can go after that Ratchet guy either."
  • Toron: "Good point. I know of him every well. He beaten some pretty powerful people. And he's likely to know we would be after them. We'll have to be smart about this. And I know how. We'll simply let them score the jewel for us AFTER they momentarly disable that darn Hellfire Phenox, then when the leave and return to Electross, we'll charge it and grab it! Good plan, right Dilly?"
  • Dil: "Well, it's just as risky as the other plans, cause those people are not idiots, but... Your the boss, so, I'm obglagated not to object."
  • Toron: "Good. Be sure the spies stay posted on the Lombax and those misfit friends of his. Both the ones on his journry, and the lougers in the ship. AND TELL THEM TO BE CAREFUL! That Bradly's a clever one."
  • Dil: Yes, sir! Should we prepare the rock golem just in case?
  • Toron: Not yet! We'll save Rocko for later. That beast may be evenly-matched with Cerberus, but it's best if we only used him as a last resort. Now go.
  • Dil: Yes, sir! I'm out! (Leaves)
  • Toron: The Jewel of Souls will be mine, one way or another! I'll make every single pony in Equestria pay for what they did to me! And these soon-to-be-infamous heroes are my ticket to getting it! (Cackles)

Electross' Space Cruiser

  • A door opens for Rachet's team to head on out.
  • Darwin: "I wish you all the best of luck, Rachet and friends. Just stay on reccomended path, and the odds of Toron being problem will... Well, it depends on if he's paying attention to us today."
  • Ratchet: Are you sure the Lodgers will be okay not knowing about this?
  • Darwin: We told them you were doing something, but didn't say what. They'll be protecting this place until you get back.
  • Talwyn: If you say so. Let's get a move-on!
  • Zephyr: Yeah, let's give them pieces of Teratrope dung a piece of our minds! (They leave)
  • Darwin: (Goes back inside the ship, and the group is unaware that they're being watched in a secluded area of the cave by some goblins and satyrs)
  • Goblin #1: Remember, boys, we need to follow them and report their progress to the boss!
  • Satyr #1: We know, we know! We went through it 5 times already. I'm sure those guys can do this if they're so unstoppable!
  • Goblin #1: Well, while Team Red watches the Lodgers and makes sure they stay out of our wake, we'll be watching these guys and make sure they succeed, and when they do, that's the moment we attack and steal the Jewel!
  • Goblin #2: Ooh, ooh, can we call this team 'Team Purple'? (Everyone looks at him weird)
  • Goblin #1:...No, we're calling it Team Blue! Now if you're done being stupid, I think it's time we got to work. (They snuck after the group)

Meanwhile...

  • Skipper: (They are sitting bored in the streets of the city) Ah, this is so BOOOOORING!! There's no food, no water, no nothing.
  • Kowalski: Well, I'm sure Electross built SOME attractions for us to play in while we're on guard duty.
  • Icky: Yeah, but won't we need money for that?
  • Skipper: Icky, this is basically a place where money isn't needed. Everyone here except for Electross is a robot.
  • Icky: But shouldn't they pay for fuel, and all those other services for that matter?
  • Skipper:...Hmm, good point. Does anyone have any money left?
  • Icky: Well, I still keep in touch with Emperor Kuzco, so he is sure to provide good pay. He even allowed me to get a credit card out of it! (Takes out a credit card)
  • Fidget:...How does Kuzco's world have credit cards?
  • Icky: Don't look at me, that place has a lot of crap like that old secret lab of Yzma's.
  • Iago: Well, I guess as long as we're staying here until Ratchet and his friends and 'sweetheart' of his get back, let's just kind of roll with it and have some fun.
  • Shifu: But remember, we are still on guard duty. We need to remain diligent at all times.
  • Iago: I know that, thank you very much! Now, where does one go to get a joy out of something?
  • Icky: "I'll ask. Hey, spider-boy! (Waves over a Qui Drone Guard). Say, tell me. What do you guys do for fun around here?"
  • Qui Drone: "..... Fun? What is this, "Fun" you speak of?"
  • Private: ".... Does that mean you don't have amusement parks or some form of entertainment?"
  • Qui Drone: "..... No. I think all we do in here is just, survive. Electross said having this "Amus" Park would attract unwanted attention."
  • Icky: ".... Your serious? I mean, I get it, the guy doesn't wanna be found and arrested, but you people don't have means to entertain yourselves!?"
  • Qui Drone: "Uh, we just, refuel and sleep here. Oh, we do rotinely listen to Electross' speeches for-"
  • Bradly kicks the Qui Drone over!
  • Bradly: "WORKER!? I THOUGHT YOU WERE INSTRUCTED TO HAVE MINIMAL INTERACTIONS WITH THESE OUTSIDERS?!"
  • Qui Drone: "S-s-s-s-s-s-s-s-Sorry, Brad! These guys were asking me what we do for "Fun" around here and-"
  • Bradly: "Just pick yourself up and resume your fuel collecting duties!?"
  • The Qui Drone wimpered like a dog and went away.
  • Skipper: "Well that wasn't very neightberly, BRAD!"
  • Bradly: "I was merely ensuring certain info doesn't end up getting into ears it shouldn't enter, outsiders! I don't want to catch you losers trying to mislead the refuelers or any other robots again, or else!?"
  • Icky: "Or else what, Obi-Wan-Ka-Asswipe?"
  • Bradly: (Takes out his lightsaber arm) I WARNED YOU ABOUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN, YOU FOOLS!! DON'T DO ANYTHING SNEAKY, OR IT'S CURTAINS FOR YOU!!
  • Icky: Oh, like hell, you couldn't kill us if you wanted to!
  • Bradly: And why not?
  • Shifu: Because Electross would be very disappointed in you, and you would be sent to the brig.
  • Bradly:...(Shrugs, and turns off his lightsaber) I don't ever want you interacting with these good people again!
  • Iago: Okay, then, asshole, what do YOU suggest we could do for fun around here, huh?
  • Bradly: That is not my concern! Besides, you should be watching out for Toron and his douche bags of a banditry!
  • Skipper: You know what, you're a jackass! We'll just find something to do ourselves! Just don't come crawling to us when you finally get kicked out of this place!
  • Shifu: Skipper!
  • Icky: Wow, you are such a jerk!
  • Skipper: What? Someone had to say it!
  • Kowalski: Let's just get out of here before we end up being sliced like cheese.
  • Bradly: Yeah, you do that! Enjoy your boredom, jackass!
  • Icky:...Okay, he's more of a jerk than you were!
  • Shifu: Let's go, now! (They leave)
  • Bradly:...(Shrugs) Those guys are going to ruin everything! I should've killed them when I had the chance!
  • Icky's voice: "WE CAN HEAR YOU!?"
  • Bradly: "D'OH?!"

Badlands area.

  • Zephyr: "-And just when it looked like the Grox were about to blast us to smitereens, I pulled out my lucky spork and-"
  • Cronk: "AGGH!? EVEN WHEN WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF SOMETHING SERIOUS, YOU JUST BLABBED AWAY ON YOUR STORIES AND-"
  • Cronk and Zephyr began to argue.
  • Talwyn sighed.
  • Talwyn: "I missed this. At least those two are great for entertainment."
  • Clank: Indeed. (Chuckles)
  • Ratchet: Let's just keep our eyes peeled. If this area is crawling with bandits, we'd better be armed and ready. (Suddenly, a noise was heard) What was that?
  • Cronk: Oh, boy! It would seem that those durn marauders have caught up with us. I should've known that technology they stole would play in their favor!
  • Clank: What technology DID they steal?
  • Cronk: Electross said they stole some weapons from the armory, some computer blueprints, and some...hoverbike schematics.
  • Ratchet:...Oh, boy! You've gotta be kidding me--(He is barely able to dodge a blast) WHOA!! (A bunch of orc bandits appear on poorly-built hoverbikes armed with large blasters)
  • Orc #1: ALRIGHT, YOU CAT-THING!! SURRENDER ALL YOUR RESOURCES AND WE'LL ONLY MAKE YOUR DEATHS PAINLESS!!!
  • Orc #2: Uh, I don't think that's possible, Lord Tussle! You can't kill somebody without hurting them--(He is smacked to the ground)
  • Orc #1 (Lord Tussle): SHUT UP, MAGGOT!! LET'S JUST GET THEM!!
  • Zephyr: Well, so much for gettin' this job done without attracting attention.
  • Ratchet: (Takes out his RYNO V) Back off!
  • Lord Tussle:...HAH! You call that a weapon? I've actually wielded one of those before!...Oh, wait, I STILL DO!! (Takes out a similar-looking gun) MAKE YOUR MOVE, CAT-THING!
  • Ratchet:...WHERE DOES ELECTROSS GET ALL THESE WEAPONS?!?
  • Cronk: Don't look at us, Electross says that all the weapons he has belonged to the Cragmites!
  • Zephyr: Some of them he ended up accidentally scavenging searching for resources in junkyards.
  • Talwyn:...Ew!
  • Lord Tussle: We know you guys are looking for the Jewel of Souls! Well, so are we! But I guess...if you help us get it, we could spare your lives, and I guess I could save this badass gun for someone else.
  • Ratchet: No dice, ugly! We're not working for any bandits no matter how many guns you stick up our butts!
  • Lord Tussle: Well, I tried! FIRE!! (They open fire, and the group manages to avoid the gunfire, and while Ratchet and Clank focus on Tussle, Talwyn, Cronk and Zephyr focus on the marauders)
  • Clank: (Ratchet takes cover from Tussle's RYNO V behind a rock)...That was a bit too close.
  • Ratchet: Any way to beat that thing, Clank?
  • Clank: Well, based on those plans we gave to that smuggler to get that gun built, I'd say we should fire a powerful enough weapon at it's barrels, that way the resulting power flux could disable the gun. Perhaps your Alpha Disruptor can do the trick.
  • Ratchet: Well, it wouldn't hurt to try! (Puts away his RYNO V, and takes out his Alpha Disruptor, charges it up, and fires it at Tussle's RYNO V barrels, causing a power flux that disables the gun)
  • Tussle: WHAT THE HECK?!? WHY ISN'T IT WORKING?!?
  • Ratchet: (Switches to the RYNO V) My turn!
  • Tussle:...Meep! (Ratchet fires, and Tussle is able to take cover behind another rock) I REQUIRE ASSISTANCE!! (Some marauders fire their guns at Ratchet)
  • Ratchet: OUCH!
  • Clank: Ratchet, are you alright?
  • Ratchet: Yeah, it's just a minor injury--WHOA, HE'S GETTING AWAY!! (The marauders take Tussle away)
  • Tussle: "THIS AIN'T OVER BY A LONG SHOT?!"
  • Clank: "Oh dear. When Darwin and Electross said they aren't the only ones who have interest in the Jewel of Souls, they were not just saying it to discourage us to interact with them."
  • Ratchet: "Ugh, it's gonna be a NIGHTMARE for the Lodgers to capture these goons and take that tec away from them!"
  • Talwyn: "Wanna assume that joker is with Toron?"
  • Rachet: "Or just another bold enough bandit being a pain in the butt for Electross."
  • Clank: "But why didn't Darwin and Electross gone into spefics about-"
  • Rachet: "I guess Electross considers Toron a bigger threat then that wimp. Or maybe he's with Toron after all. Either way, we have to be ALOT more careful then already."
  • As our heroes went on, the Goblins on team blue is watching.
  • Goblin 1: "Oh darn that stupid Tuss?! He and his pre-mature attacks!? Now we can't ambush them cause they'll be expecting it?!"
  • Goblin 2: "Don't worry. When Toron hears of it, that orc will play by his standerds soon enough."
  • Goblin 1: "Either way, that means we have no choice but to only watch those guys and wait for them to return to Electross like Toron has likely to have in plan!"

Toron's camp.

  • Toron: "TUSSLE YOU IDIOT?! WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT PREMATURELY ATTACKING THEM?! YOUR SUPPOSE TO MONITOR THEM AND WARN ME IF THEY TRY TO INCLUDE MORE LOUGERS?! NOW DOING AMBUSH ATTACKS IS OUT OF THE QUESTION CAUSE THEN THEY'LL BE EXPECTING IT?!"
  • Tussle: "I do apologies, Toron old bean. I just thought that it would be wiser to usurp them away from that alien and get the jewel for ourselves, that way, we can avoid an un-nessersary attack at that ship, and, avoid another beating from that lightsaber weilding hornet?"
  • Toron: "(Growls), I ALREADY TOLD YOU!? JUST BECAUSE ELECTROSS MANAGED TO SWAY HIM DOESN'T MEAN WE CAN AS WELL!?"
  • Tussle: "Well if that alien cat-thing is so hard to control, then how did Electross, a member of that cat-thing's race's mortal enemies, managed to convince him?"
  • Toron: "Because, he, knows how to WIN PEOPLE OVER!? Which disincludes threatening their lives to get what you want?! THAT'S HOW ELECTROSS WON HIM OVER?! HE SIMPLY DIDN'T ACT OR DO ANYTHING THREATENING!? YOU, DID, YOU STUPID TROLLISH ELF?!"
  • Tussle: "Ok, ok, old boy! I get it! I was abit too ambitious! I'll keep my ambition in check this time and we'll do exactly what you request and just monitor for surprises. I promsie to refraign from improvising again. You have an orc's honor."
  • Toron: "YOU BETTER!? OR YOUR DEATH WILL BE NO DIFFERENT THEN THE FALLEN LEGEND GRIM-NOR!? And we know what became of him!"
  • Tussle: ".... (Gulp)...... I never knew cute little horses can have surprisingly dark punishments for the likes of us."
  • Toron: Exactly! And to worse it all off, all the other marauders I have close contacts with will have the EXACT SAME IDEA TO ATTACK THOSE GUYS UNTIL THEY GET USED TO IT!! BEFORE WE KNOW IT, THE ENTIRE SHELL LODGE SQUAD WILL BE UP OUR NOSES!!! YOU PEANUT-HEADED BUFOON!!! (Smacks him in the face)
  • Tussle: OWCH!! Oh, come on! It's not like-
  • Toron: I WANT NO MORE EXCUSES, TUSSLE!! WE HAVE TO CONVINCE ALL THE OTHER BANDITS OUT THERE TO REFRAIGN FROM ATTACKING THOSE GUYS BEFORE THEY GET THE WRONG IDEA!!
  • Dil: Uh, sir, I think it may be too late. We've gotten reports that bandit leaders Goat-Face, Buckaroo Benny, and Rusty Max have already started heading straight for the group.
  • Toron:... AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!! (Throws Tussle out the window as he crashes to the ground) GET OUT OF MY CAMP, YOU IDIOT!! GUARDS, ESCORT THE BASTARD OUT!! (Centaur guards with large energy hammers appear, and attack Tussle and his group, chasing them out of the camp)
  • Tussle: THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT, MAGGOT!!
  • Orc #2 (Maggot): Why do you always blame me?!? It wasn't my idea to attack those guys!
  • Tussle: LET'S JUST NOT FOCUS ON ARGUING AND FOCUS ON RUNNING FOR OUR F****** LIVES!! (They make it out of the camp as the hammer-wielding centaurs return to it)
  • Toron: (He is banging his head in the wall, and accidentally punches a hole in it while doing it) Blasted idiot! THEY'RE ALL IDIOTS!!...(Sighs)...What am I going to do with all these bandits, Dil?
  • Dil: Gee, I don't know-
  • Toron: Don't answer that! Just... Just see if you can warn those idiotic bandit leaders not to attack the group and louse up our plans!
  • Dil: Yes, sir! (Leaves)
  • Toron:... Geez, where did I go wrong with all these idiots?!? Isn't being careful a sacred practice anymore?!

Electross' ship city.

  • Icky: "..... Hey, I just realise something.... How do these guys get fuel? Isn't this old hunk like, out of it or something?"
  • An Old Voice: "Oh, that's an easy one, organics."
  • An Elderly looking Hornet came to them.
  • Private: "Uh, sorry sir, but Bradly was speficfic about talking to the other robots."
  • Elderly Hornet: "Ah, don't worry about him. Brad went out on patrol again with Darwin and the boys. You can virtually do what you please til he's back. So, ya want know where our fuel comes from?"
  • Icky: "Well, yeah. How the hell are you guys finding the stuff?"
  • Elderly Hornet: "(Chuckles), It's simple. The Badlands has the richest non-polluting shorce of fuel ever! We call it, Badlandium!"
  • Shifu: "Non-Polluting?"
  • Elderly Hornet: "Hey, I'm suppose to be the confused one here! Yes I said Badlandium! Why, if the natives just believed in using cars, Badlandium would've enabled them to have cake and eat it too, cause this stuff is like a dolphin safe tuna net for the e-vi-o-ment! There's only so many of the stuff cause everyone's afraid of the critters and exsilers here!"
  • Icky: "...... Guys, Kevin's old company should DIFFENTLY KNOW ABOUT THIS?!"
  • Shifu: "No! We do that, then we risk exposing Electross and his robots. It's best we can keep it to ourselves, at least until we can expose only the Badlandium WITHOUT exposing this place!"
  • Elderly Hornet: "That ain't too hard! This stuff's EVERYWHERE in the badlands! Take it from old Jeb90210."
  • Icky started to laugh!
  • Icky: "Your number's name is "90210"?!"
  • Jeb: "Uh, yes. Why is that funny exactly?"
  • Icky: Because... (Laughs)... You're taking the name of that show 90210! (Laughs) Anyone can get such a stupid reference!
  • Jeb: (Sighs)
  • Fidget: Well, since Bradly is out for the moment, can you tell us what Electross wants with our friends?
  • Jeb: Mmmph, we're not supposed to speak of that, even with people like Bradly gone. Electross possibly has security listening for us.
  • Icky:... May I ask, how did YOU end up being with the rest of these robots?
  • Jeb: "I'm a hornet, aren't I? Obviously, you don't rekindised me as one of the hornet invadtion forces from that gala thing."
  • Icky: "Sorry, we have trouble remembering generic evil minions. They're all so alike."
  • Jeb: "Well, at least I have abit more personality now, like we all. (Chuckles)."
  • Shifu: "Alchourse. Thank you for your kindness. We would wish to repay it."
  • Jeb: "Having someone to talk to for once is a repaid enough of a dept to me."
  • Jeb walks off.
  • Icky: "What a nice old robot. Kinda sucks he used to be a murderious killing machine."
  • Shifu: "Obviously under Electross' rule, these machines were given a rare oppertunity to be more then just weapons. I admire Electross for what he is doing."
  • Skipper: "Well, it kinda cured my boredom at least."
  • Kolwalski: "There is one thing though. Why is it that Electross doesn't want us to know about whatever they're doing?"
  • Iago: "Because OBVIOUSLY, we weren't what the guy wanted to have here to begin with. He clearly wanted Rachet only. We sort've butted in cause we thought it was a typical Nefarious trap!"
  • Icky: "Well, outside of Brad, the other robots of Trossy clearly don't treat us like an inconvience. If anything, we just weren't planned to come here."
  • Kolwalski: "But still.... Wasn't odd on how Bradford interupted that Qui Drone just when it was talking about one of Electross' rotine speeches?"
  • Shifu: ".... That is understandably odd. But it is OBVIOUSLY not our business here to begin with. Icky and Iago said it best, we weren't even suppose to be here, so we can't blame them for being cautious of something that wasn't planned."
  • Kowalski: I'm just saying, it seems like they're hiding something that we can't allow him to do, or something. Why else would that Bradly guy be this over-protective by being so violent with that lightsaber arm of his?
  • Icky: You're just over-reacting, Kowalski! There's nothing suspicious here. So let's go back to being guards, cause I'm looking forward to protecting this place from that Toron guy.
  • Kolwalski: ".... It's obvious I'm just being prepusumuious."
  • The Louger Groups moves on out.

Chapter 4: The Jewel of Souls

Badland Areas.

  • Cronk: "WOO! What a trek! Nothing gets the adrendalan pumping like bandit after bandit! If this is honestly what this Toron guy had to offer, then maybe he isn't that bad at all!"
  • Talwyn: "Or maybe those were just disobedient idiots that don't really speak for Toron over all."
  • Rachet: "In that case, let's play it safe and not underestimate Toron just yet."
  • Squawks are heard.
  • Rachet: "Take cover!?"
  • Rachet's team takes cover!
  • The Demon Vultures of Tartarus and Grimmer riding on one of them are seen!
  • Cluckly: "Hey pops! Are we there yet?"
  • Reaper: "You asked me that 400 times, Cluckly?! We'll get there, when we get there!?"
  • Grimmer: "Well, I'm sure it's not to far anyway. So, we're inspecting some sort of jewel guarded by a Hellfire Phenox?"
  • Reaper (lovedazed): "Yeahhhh. The Phenox is muy caliante."
  • Grimmer and the other Tartarus Vultures: "What?"
  • Reaper: "(Snaps out of it) NOTHING!"
  • Ratchet:... Who were those guys?
  • Clank: I believe they may be the '6 demonic vultures and green idiot' Darwin was referring to.
  • Cronk: Huh? That big one has a crush on the Hellfire Phoenix. Who knew?
  • Ratchet: Let's just be quiet, guys, we're almost there. (The see that they're almost at Tartarus, which was very ominous in it's appearance)
  • Zephyr: Son of a Qwark! I ain't never seen that scary a place since the Cragmite homeworld! (Shivers) What a wretched place THAT was!
  • Talwyn: How are we gonna get over there? That place is sure to be filled to the brim with security. With that many of them, they'd call Cerberus, and we'd be torn apart like a War Grok!
  • Ratchet: And DAMN, I know such a feeling.
  • Clank: That place seems pretty forbidden to me. I am starting to get that 'not-taking-the-risks' vibe again.
  • Ratchet: Me, too! But if this is a much less-risky way for me to see the Lombaxes at last, then I guess we should give it a try.
  • Cronk: HAH! I'd take a freaking' miracle to get through THAT wasteland without gettin' spotted by one of them durn monsters!
  • Clank: Uh... Ratchet? I think our troublesome marauder friends are back and heading our way.
  • Ratchet: Where? (They see another group of bandits appearing, this time being lead by a large muscular Centaur with a giant energy hammer)
  • Centaur: Alright, boys! Keep a sharp eye out! We'll find those heroes and force 'em to find the Jewel of Souls for us! But AFTER we show them after what happens when you make us look like idiots!? (Chuckles) It's going to feel so good knowing that I, Buckaroo Benny, will be an immortal bandit leader who will crush anyone who stands in his way! (Cackles)
  • Zephyr: Oh, durn! Looks like they've gotten their hands on some G5 Energy Mallets! A nasty piece of Cragmite technology that they used in both combat and execution.
  • Cronk: Yeah, I've seen an actual holo-video of how that thing works. It was tested on a live person, and there was blood EVERYWHERE! Whatever them Cragmites were, they were not only corrupt, but sadistic.
  • Ratchet: Guys, let's just remain silent, and don't let them hear us!
  • Talwyn:... Uh-oh, it looks like there's a bandit frenzy going on here. There's that goat guy again! (They see another group lead by a muscular Satyr with glowing yellow shoulder pads, a cybernetic eye, and a large blaster)
  • Satyr: Think of it, boys, we'll be immortal by the time we've ripped the Jewel out of that Lombax's hands! Espeically after he made us look like a joke!? Soon, there'll be nobody left to stop... Wait for it... GOAT-FACE!!
  • Ratchet: (He and Talwyn couldn't help but scoff at that name) His name is Goat-Face?
  • Talwyn: (Scoffs) Even I can't take him seriously with that name.
  • Clank: Guys, we are being quiet, remember?
  • Zephyr: Wait a minute... Oh, shoot, there's that guy again.
  • Ratchet: Let me guess... The armored green man?
  • Cronk: Definitely! (They see another group of bandits lead by a small goblin with high-tech armor, a scarred face, and a long dark-blue laser whip)
  • Goblin: Where's that cat-thing?!? I wanna see what his insides look like, for my name isn't RUSTY MAX!! (Cackles)
  • Ratchet:... Is it me, or does it look like all bandits and marauders in this area stole technology from the ship?
  • Zephyr: It's like what Electross already told us. EVERY exile here did. They were gosh-darned tired of using common weapons like spears and tridents, so they decided, 'let's fight fire with fire'! So before you know it, a lot of technology from the ship was being stolen. Some being returned after duplicatin' the schematics, others being kept for themselves.
  • Cronk: Yeah, so you can see why that whipper-snapper Bradly is so over-protective. These bandits just keep comin' and comin' and comin' for more! They ain't gonna stop until they get what they believe is rightfully theirs.
  • Ratchet: Well... How are we gonna lose them? (Suddenly, a gun cock was heard)... Are you blarging kidding me? That wasn't even more then a second! (A satyr is holding a blaster behind his head)
  • Satyr: Drop your weapons, Lombax! And if any of you try to help, I'll scream and alert the rest of those bandits! And if you all try to help, I'll blast you until you're-
  • Clank judo chop the Satyr into unconjustusness.
  • Clank: "No one threatens my friends and expects to remain unharmed."
  • A voice: "THERE THEY ARE?!"
  • The Bandit groups began to close in on Rachet's group.
  • Cronk: ".... Dag nabit. Durn outlaws everywhere."
  • Zephyr: "Fair ta warn ya'll. I fought a witch tougher then ya'll. And she's barely half the size of your armored green man there."
  • Rusty: "Oh hardy har har. Make a shot at my size, eh?"
  • Benny: "Alright ya durn aliens! We're here to make you give the jewel to us and not at all bother giving it to that stupid butt ugly alien cyborg!"
  • Goat-Face: "Do the exact oppisite, then we're gonna-"
  • Voice: "Now what's all this then?"
  • Everyone looks to see Cluckly, and the other Vultures of Tartarus and Grimmer were sitting on a tree.
  • Cluckly: "I think you folks are lost. Equestia isn't holding a star trek convention today! (Laughs as does the other Vultures of Tartarus!)"
  • Rachet: "OH THANKS ALOT, YOU IDIOTS?! YOU GOT US CAUGHT?!"
  • Benny: "PIPE DOWN BOY?! OR I'LL SMASH YER HEADS OFF!?"
  • Chuckly: "My, my, my! I have been told that Badlanders have SUCH a colorful personality, but wow!"
  • Emo: "Yeah, or they wouldn't be in this neightberhood."
  • Cluckly: "Oh, and I have been informed that alot of them aren't exactly the pinitcle of beauty contestents! I mean, not everyone can be borned with good looks."
  • Shorty: "Keep insulting them like that Cluckly, and you won't be so good looking."
  • Cluckly: "Oh, those clowns? They're harmless."
  • Reaper: "(Quietly) Ugh, he always has to learn the hard way."
  • Cluckly: "Oh, and uh, Satyr boy? What's the deal, being called Goat-Face? You only have a goat's BUTT!?"
  • Cluckly laughs loud!
  • Cronk and Zephyr started laughing too!
  • Goat Face growled.
  • Cluckly: "Ohh, hey, horse-butt Benny! How's your GIANT ASS DOING!?"
  • Cluckly laughed outload as do Zephyr and Cronk!
  • Benny growled.
  • Cluckly: "Oh, Hi Rusty! I see your eager to go to this year's renisance fair! TOO BAD KNIGHTS DON'T HAVE FANCY LAZER WHIPS!? (LAUGHS)"
  • Rusty: "THAT'S IT?! I DON'T CARE ABOUT THAT STUPID JEWEL ANYMORE?! IT'S NOT WORTH IT?! LET'S JUST KILL THEM ALL AND BE DONE WITH IT?!"
  • Benny: "MAH SENTIEMENTS EXACTLY?!"
  • Goat Face: "YOU ALL ARE SO DEAD!?"
  • Cluckly: "Oh, this is great, I love me an raged out audience!"
  • Reaper: "Oh my sweet Hellflame. They're all set for you."
  • A loud squawk was heard as a giant Phenox looking like a baddass verson of Philamena appeared!
  • Rusty: "......"
  • Benny: "Oh....."
  • Goat-face: "Crap."
  • Reaper: "(Chuckles kinda evily). Stupid idiots, Hellflame. Hellflame, Stupid idiots."
  • Rusty: "...... Meep."
  • Hellflame: "THOSE WHO HAVE DARED WALKED ON THE FORBIDDEN GROUNDS OF THE TARTARUS GATE!? PREPARE TO BE SENT TO THY MAKERS THROUGH MY WRATH!?"
  • Rusty: "Uh, no nonononononononoononoonno! We're not bandits! We're uh..... Girlscouts?"
  • Benny: "Vaccum cleaner salesmen?"
  • Goat Face: "Uh..... Have you heard the good news about our lord and savior Je-"
  • Goat Face, Rusty, and Benny get levitated up into the air magicly by Hellflame cause of her glowing fire eyes.
  • Hellflame: "Thy penalties are as clear as the sacred but unbalencedly powerful jewel I wear!"
  • Hellflame was reveiled to be wearing the Jewel of Souls on a Hades themed necklace.
  • Rachet: "(Quietly) Guys, it's the jewel!"
  • Rusty: "NO!? PLEASE?! PUT US DOWN AND LET US LEAVE TO NEVER RETURN AGAIN?!"
  • Benny: "WE'LL NEVER DISTURB YA AGAIN?! WE SWEAR!?"
  • Goat Face: ".... Tic-tac?"
  • Hellflame lifted the jewel of souls at the general direction of the three bandit leaders.
  • Rusty: "No.... NO!? ANYTHING BUT THAT?!"
  • Benny: "OH HEAVEN'S NO, HAVE MERCY!?"
  • Goat-Face: "Oh no! NONONONONONONONONONONONONO?!"
  • Hellfire activated the jewel, as scary looking red enegry hands came from the jewel and phased into the Bandit leaders, as it begins to pull out their souls!
  • Rusty: "NOOOOOOOOO?! NO!? MY SOUL!? MY BEAUTIFUL EVIL SOUL!?"
  • Benny: "AGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!?"
  • Goat Face: "I SHOULD'VE LISTENED TO MA AND BECAME A PLUMBER?!"
  • The Hands pull out the souls as the bandit leaders began to turn into skeletons and into dust, as the screaming souls of the Bandit leaders are dragged away into the jewel!
  • The cowerdly bandits, discovering the loss of their leaders, ran away like cowerds!
  • Rachet and friends stared in shock!
  • Cronk: "..... Ah, Fraglerocks."
  • Hellflame looks at Rachet's group.
  • Hellflame: ".... Why are you still here? Shouldn't you be running away like your bandit allies?"
  • Talwyn: "Those guys were trying to kill us!"
  • Hellflame: "I see..... What is thy business here?"
  • Cronk (quietly): "Don't say the Jewel, Don't say the Jewel, Don't say the Jewel!"
  • Ratchet: We're here for the Jewel of Souls!
  • Cronk: (Sighs)..... Phasor damn it!
  • Hellflame:... I'm sorry, but you cannot have it.
  • Clank: Why not?
  • Hellflame: You see, it is guarded by us for a reason. The Alicorn God of Creation had this gem sealed up because it was dubbed too dangerous to use, whether by good or evil hands. Such powers that this Jewel possesses is far too powerful for even Alicorns to control.
  • Zephyr: THEN WHY ARE YOU WIELDING IT, YA' DURN HYPOCRITE?!?
  • Talwyn: Zephyr, be nice!
  • Hellflame: Because I have learned to wield it properly after all these millennia, a skill that nobody else in the UUniverses have. I am the guardian of this gem, and--
  • Ratchet: Yes, we have been told that. You're the Hellfire Phoenix.
  • Hellflame: Correct. But you may refer to me as Hellflame. And you cannot have this Jewel.
  • Zephyr: Look, lady, we didn't walk all these miles for nothin'! We have a job to do involving curing a corrupt race with that thing!
  • Hellflame: The Jewel is not the key to answering that problem. A soul once tried to seek it before until he decided that getting it required that he get past me, so he recently moved on to use the Keyhole of Equestria to fulfill his misguided plans.
  • Ratchet: Keyhole?... As in... The one that these guys named the Shell Lodge Squad had to deal with?
  • Hellflame: Yes.
  • Clank:... The Lodgers knew how dangerous this thing was the whole time!
  • Cronk: No wonder Electross was so discreet to them!
  • Ratchet: Oh, boy! It's me and Azimuth with the Great Clock all over again! We almost made a big mistake.
  • Talwyn: No kidding! Who knows what would've happened if we weren't warned about this!
  • Hellflame: I am grateful for your sacrifice of your quest, brave ones. It's obvious you weren't like the exsilers here, and- (Suddenly, tremors were heard)
  • Ratchet:... What was that?
  • Cronk: Oh, boy, looks like we've angered that Cerberus beast!
  • Hellflame: No, I don't think it was Cerberus!... It's... Oh, no! It's- (Suddenly, something big popped out from the ground)
  • Zephyr: DAD GUM!! (The giant reveals itself to be a giant Rock Golem similar to the Earth Golem, except it is gray and had blue-glowing eyes. It roared loudly)
  • Hellflame: TORON'S ROCK GOLEM?!?
  • Ratchet: Wait, THAT'S the Rock Golem that we've been told about?!?
  • Clank: I don't think I like what it's trying to do.
  • ???: ATTENTION, ALIENS!! THIS IS TORON!! SURRENDER THE JEWEL SO I CAN TAKE IT AND FULFILL MY PLANS!!
  • Hellflame: You will not lay a hand on the Jewel, Toron! It is too dangerous, and you know it!
  • Toron: (Appears from the Rock Golem's back) Exactly, that's why I want it! Not only is it the answer to immortality I want, but it will also enable me to give those ponies something they'll NEVER forget! I will use it as the ultamate message that they shouldn't turn the mythic beast community into wimps, and giving us harsh and fatal punishments if we refused to play by their standerds!? Now hand it over, or I'll be sure that Rocko here will have some innocent lava spilt!
  • Hellflame: Do whatever you want, I will protect it at all costs!
  • Toron: As you wish! Rocko, ATTACK!! (The Rock Golem roars and begins to battle Hellflame)
  • Clank: Uh, guys, I think Hellflame needs out help.
  • Ratchet: ARE YOU KIDDING?!? ARE YOU LOOKING AT THAT THING?!? IT'S THE SIZE OF A BUILDING!!!
  • Clank: It is not the first time we've defeated such a similar creature, Ratchet! Remember the Earth Golem we defeated during that incident with Nefarious involving that drug that increased intelligence?
  • Ratchet: That's because we had the Lodgers to help us! And without them with us, and with there being only 5 of us, how will we ever deal with this thing?!?
  • Clank: We must do something!
  • ???: "TORON?!"
  • Toron: "Oh shit, not him aga-"
  • Lightsaber sounds are heard in a repeated fastion!
  • Bradly landed in the center of the area.
  • Bradly: "......"
  • Toron: "BRAD!? If you were just flinging that lazor sword around for nothing to scare me, well it didn't-"
  • Rocko started to scream in pain, as it ls discovered that Bradly cut up the creature so many times, the slices were enough to actselly kill the creature!
  • Toron: "ROCKO!?"
  • Rocko fell down into pieces, as Toron quickly escaped on a poorly constructed hover-bike!
  • Toron: "THIS AIN'T OVER, BRAD!? I WILL MAKE YOU PAY FOR THIS?! I'LL MAKE SURE YOUR STUPID DAD PAYS THROUGH THE NOSE FOR THIS?! AND I'LL ONLY CHANGE MY MIND IF YOU GIVE ME THE JEWEL!?"
  • Toron escapes!
  • Bradly looks angerly at Rachet!
  • Bradly: "WHAT'RE YOU WAITING FOR, LOMBAX?! BRING OUT ONE OF YOUR GUNS AND KILL TORON!?"
  • Clank: "Bradford, I know Toron has been quite a bane to you and your father, but ending his life won't make us better then him."
  • Bradly: "HE'S NOTHING BUT A MURDERIOUS PSYCOPATH!? HE DOESN'T DESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIVE?!"
  • Rachet: "Maybe so, but as of yet, he didn't cross complete monster terratory where doing what your asking justifys it."
  • Bradly: "GRRRRRR?! AT LEAST CONVINCE THE BIRD TO-"
  • Cronk: "About that.... Uh, yeah turns out, the jewel was lost for a reason. It may most likely be about as dangerious as misusing the Great Clock."
  • Bradly: ".... So that's it, huh? Your gonna abandon my father because those rumors just HAPPENED to be right?! He has a way to get around what kind of dangers the jewel offers!? My father knows what he's doing! He wouldn't even dream of being near that jewel if he doesn't know what he's doing! But he does, and he knows what he's doing!"
  • Rachet: "And I don't doubt Electross one bit! It's just, maybe this isn't a risk worth taking."
  • Bradly growled loudly and flew off, chasing after Toron!
  • Zephyr: ".... Well..... This went rather south quickly."
  • Talwyn: "(Looks at the Tartarus Vultures and Grimmer) You guys know Princess Celestia right?"
  • Reaper: "Yeah, she's our boss, yo."
  • Talwyn: "Well fly off and warn her that we're in trouble! We're gonna need some help here!"
  • Shorty: "Don't have to tell us twice!"
  • The Tartarus Vultures bumbled about and flew off!
  • Clank: "Won't this mean exposing Electross?"
  • Rachet: "We kinda don't have a choice, Clank. That jerk-off is likely to have an army of crooks at the ready!"
  • Zephyr: "Let's just hope Electross stays in a forgiving mood after this."

Chapter 5: Trouble Erupts

Electross's ship.

  • Darwin was paniacing and found the Louger group.
  • Darwin: "LOUGERS, THERE YOU ARE?! Bradly came in and well.... We, may have a situation. Toron is launghing a new attack on the ship! He's gotten his entire gang in!"
  • Shifu: "Say no more! We shall bring this fiend to justice!?"
  • Darwin: "Uh.... About that... Well.... Bradly also reported that, Rachet didn't wanted to help us anymore, because.... Can, you promise not to judge Electross and the rest of us poorly after what I explain?"
  • Icky: "..... It's fucking bad, isn't it?"
  • Darwin: "Uh, depends.... Is, trying to get a powerful artifact called the Jewel of Souls to purify the Cragmite race fall among the lines of bad?"
  • Shifu: "..... Yes, that deffently falls into those lines of bad."
  • Skipper: "SO THAT'S WHY ELECTRICBUTT WAS SO HUSH-HUSH!?"
  • Darwin: "Please! Let me explain!"
  • Icky: "We kinda got the general idea! Electross is the black sheep of his race, so he wants that soul jewel to purify them, then he'll bring the Lombaxes back, and create a super-powerful allience from it!"
  • Darwin: "..... That's actselly.... More or less the abriged verson of what Electross is doing. But please understand, Electross didn't lie out of malisious intent, he was afraid you wouldn't understand him considering what has been said about the jewel being, unstable and dangerious."
  • Iago: "Look, we won't lie. We in fact ARE against what he was doing, but that doesn't mean we don't sympathise him."
  • Private: "If anything, all we would've done is just tell him to consider a different approuch."
  • Darwin: "So, your not.... Mad?"
  • Skipper: "Alittle peeved that Electross was playing secret party on us, but not, mad! I mean, in his defence, he probuly wasn't planing on 4 penguins, a parrot, an ugly prehistoric bird, a crippled bat and a kung fu master red panda to begin with. What else he was gonna do?"
  • Darwin: "Oh good. Cause considering that Toron will be here soon, angry heroes are the LAST thing Electross needs. It's just, I don't know how to break the news to him myself."
  • Icky: "You mean, assuming Bradly doesn't do that first in the WRONGEST WAYS POSSABLE?!"
  • Darwin made a shock face!
  • Darwin: "GAH!? LOUGERS, YOU NEED TO HELP ME CALM BRADLY DOWN BEFORE HE MAKES THE SITUATION WORSE!?"
  • Icky: Uh-uh! There is NO way I'm getting near that angry hornet! He's have my head cut clean off!
  • Shifu: We can handle him, Icky!
  • Icky: But-but-but we haven't taken one someone with, of all things, a lightsaber! We all know how that thing can cut off a poor boy's hand!
  • Skipper: Icky, we have to do it! He's going to do something murderous if we don't!
  • Darwin: Yes. I've seen him fight, and he's been able to slaughter an entire army of bandits in less than 2 minutes. He's already killed 5 bandit groups ever since he came here. He's not afraid to spill even a single drop of blood! And now with the situation we're in, I don't think even reminding him of his loyalty to Electross will stop him.
  • Private: Then... Then what'll we do?!?
  • Darwin: Looks like it's up to Electross to talk some sense into him. And we don't have time to lose- (Suddenly, a tremor was heard)
  • Kowalski: AND THERE'S NO TIME AT ALL FOR THAT MATTER!!! HE'S HERE!!!
  • Toron: (On communication) ALRIGHT, ELECTROSS!!! YOU'VE DONE SOME VERY NASTY THINGS, BUT NOW I FEEL THAT IT'S TIME YOUR TREACHERY CAME TO AN END!! THREE OF MY BEST COLLEAGUES ARE LOST, AND I HAVE VERY FEW OTHERS LEFT!! BUT NOW THAT YOUR ALIEN FRIENDS ARE AGAINST YOU, THERE'S NOTHING LEFT TO STOP ME FROM KILLING YOU!! BUT I AM WILLING TO SPARE YOUR LIFE IF YOU HELP ME IN GETTING THE JEWEL OF SOULS ONCE AND FOR ALL!! I'M GIVING YOU 5 MINUTES TO COMPLY, AND IF YOU FAIL TO DO SO... (It is seen that outside the ship, there is a few large hovering tanks outside) I'LL TURN YOUR PRECIOUS HOME INTO A PILE OF RUBBLE!!
  • Kowalski: (Screams crazily) WHERE DID THEY GET TANKS?!?
  • Darwin: Yeah, those bandits have a big knack at stealing our technology and using it against us. Those are Cragmite M36B Hover Tanks. Records say that those thing are capable of destroying an entire building in one shot, and with 3 of them out there... It will NOT be pretty.
  • ???: DARWIN!! (Electross appears) GET THE SHIP'S DEFENSES READY!! WE NEED TO TAKE OUT THOSE TANKS BEFORE THEY DESTROY US!!
  • Fidget: Isn't your lightsaber-armed hornet able to take care of this? He should be here by now.
  • Electross: Bradly? HE'S NOT HERE?!?
  • Shifu:... You mean, he's not with you? He was implied to come back and warn you... But it seems Toron saved him the trouble of doing it himself and.....
  • Electross:...Oh, crap! HE'S GOING TO MAKE THINGS WORSE WHEN HE GETS HERE!! WE HAVE TO STOP HIM BEFORE-
  • ???: TOROOOOOONNN!!! (The word echoes throughout the cave as Bradly appears inside the main tank, confronting Toron and Dil) You've gone too far with what you have done! I'm going to end this once and for all! (Flies towards Toron to try and kill him, but Dil seemingly leaps in the way)
  • Toron: DIL- (Bradly slashes) NOOOOOOOO!!! (Blood stains are seen on the wall of the bridge)
  • Bradly: YOU STUPID LITTLE GOAT!!
  • Kowalski: (They hear everything in the communication)... What just happened?!?
  • Electross:... He didn't!
  • Toron:... You... YOU MONSTER!! (Takes out a blaster) I'LL KILL YOU FOR THIS!! (Fires at Bradly, but he uses the lightsaber arm to deflect the blasts) FIRE ALL TANKS ON MY COMMAND!! THE YELLOW HORNET JUST MURDERED DIL!!
  • Electross: (Turns on communication) BRADLY, PLEASE, STOP WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING, DO YOU HEAR ME?!? (The words are heard on the speakers of the ship) HE'S GOING TO DESTROY THE SHIP IF YOU DON'T!!
  • Bradly:... Father! I- (Suddenly, Toron uses the distraction to blast the lightsaber hand off) URRGH!!!
  • Electross: BRADLY?!?
  • Toron: GET OUT OF MY TANK!! (Manages to beat up Bradly, and throw him out of the tank and onto the ground) ALL TANKS, FIRE AT THE HORNET!! (They aim their tanks at him) 3... 2... 1... FIRE!!
  • Electross: NOOOOOOOOOOO!!- (They blast at Bradly, and when the dust cleared, he was reduced to nothing but scrap metal, and his head launches and broke through the window and landed right in front of the group)
  • Bradly:... (His head is still operational)... Father!... Is that you?
  • Icky: "Oh hey, it's true. The head DOES stay active after it's been decapatated. Then again, it is a robot, so-"
  • Skipper slaps Icky!
  • Icky: "OW?!"
  • Electross: "Son!? (Grabs Bradly's head). Son! Don't worry, I'll.... I'll repair you like I did when I first found you! This all but a minor inconvience!"
  • Trisha saw this and was making sounds simular to crying.
  • Bradly: "Father, I- (Glitches up and shuts down....)"
  • Skipper: ".... A moment of silence. To honor our fallen."
  • Electross: "..... Son?........ TORON?! YOU HAVE INCURED THE WRATH OF THE WRONG ALIEN!? AND I KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO MAKE YOU SUFFER!?"
  • Electross runs off!
  • Icky: ".... Ya don't think he's gonna release his corrupt race on this world just to punish ONE guy, are ya?"
  • Electross's voice: "PREPARE TO SUFFER THE WRATH OF THE CRAGMITE RACE, TORON?!"
  • Shifu: "AND HE'S GONNA RELEASE THEM WITHOUT PURIFYING THEM!? MORE THEN JUST THAT BANDIT WILL SUFFER THE WRATH OF THAT RACE?! ELECTROSS IN HIS EMOTIONAL TIRADE WILL END UP BECOME THE DEATH OF EQUESTIA AND HE'S UNABLE TO REALISE THAT?!"
  • Darwin: "Oh no! We need to get to him and calm him down, before it's too late!?"

Throne Room

  • Electross: (Enters, and gets out his Dimensionator)
  • Skipper: RETRIEVE THAT TECHNO-HAT!! (Shifu kicks the Dimensionator out of Electross' hands)
  • Shifu: Electross, what are you thinking?!? You know as well as Ratchet what your race would do to us all if you released them!
  • Kowalski: They'll surely kill us, and even you since they already know how soft you are compared to them!
  • Electross: I'LL BANISH THEM BACK AS SOON AS TORON IS DEAD!! (Disintegrates himself and gets the Dimensionator, and reassembles himself again after getting it) DIMENSIONATOR, FIND THE CRAGMITES!! (Activates the Dimensionator, and a large portal opens)
  • Skipper: NOOOO!!! (Suddenly, a huge Cragmite appears from the rift, and growls viciously, and several other Cragmites appear from the rift)
  • Icky: DAMN, those things are ugly!
  • Electross: Alright, everyone! I have summoned you here to--
  • Cragmite #1: (Speaks alien language, "Electross! I was expecting Tachyon to be doing this, and not you! Why would you release us after how much we put you through?")
  • Electross: By the moons of klazmar, I was expecting THAT reaction! Look, I want you to destroy those tanks outside so they can--
  • Cragmite #2: ("You ain't the boss of us, ugly! We ain't gonna do anything for you!")
  • Electross: Well, fine, if you want me to banish you back, then that's fine.
  • Cragmite #1: ("YOU WOULDN'T DARE!!")
  • Electross: Try me!
  • Cragmite #1: (Growls, "FINE! We'll do it! I can't believe we're being forced to help an exile!")
  • Electross: Hey, I certainly didn't force you to whine! Now do it!
  • The Cragmites advanced away!
  • Icky: "You know those suckers are gonna betray you the first chance they get!?"
  • Electross: "I promise I'll act swiftly before the idea enters their skulls! This'll only be until Bradly is avenged!"
  • Skipper: "Assuming it's that easy!"

Outside.

  • Toron was getting impathent!
  • Toron: "ALLRIGHT?! THAT TEARS IT?! THAT BUG IS DEAD?! BOYS, TIME TO BLOW DOWN THE-"
  • Roars are heard!
  • Centaur exsile: "GREAT CELESTIALS, WHAT ARE THOSE THINGS?!"
  • Cragmite #1: (They all reintegrate in front of the tanks) ("ARE THOSE OUR TECHNOLOGY?!?", (Growls), "No wonder Electross wants us to kill them! ATTACK!!") (The Cragmites begin attacking the tanks)
  • Toron: Oh, great, more Cragmites! As if one wasn't bad enough!
  • Centaur Exile: (Tries to smack a Cragmite with his energy hammer, but the Cragmite disintegrates and becomes intangible enough to avoid the attack)
  • Cragmite #4: ("Stealing our energy hammers, too, huh?") (Snatches the hammer from the centaur, and literally smacks his head off while off-camera)
  • Toron: I'M GETTING OUT OF HERE! (Jumps out of the tank as it is being destroyed, and charges straight into the ship, ramming past all Cragmites that try and stop him) ELECTROSS, I'M COMING FOR YOU NOW!! NOT EVEN YOUR FRIENDS WILL BE ABLE TO SAVE YOU!! I WILL TEAR THIS SHIP APART LOOKING FOR YOU!! (Runs through the city as an alarm is raised)
  • Computer Voice: Warning! Warning! Bioscan reveals a minotaur in the city! Mobilizing all units!
  • Ratchet: (The Aphelion appears into the area as they jump out) WE'RE TOO LATE!!
  • Clank: Wait a minute...are those...Cragmites?
  • Ratchet: He unleashed them?!? IS HE OUT OF HIS MIND?!?
  • Cronk: We need to get in there and banish them back!
  • Cragmite #1: (Sees the group) ("YOU!")
  • Talwyn: Oh, boy, we've been spotted!
  • Ratchet: Relax, we've taken them before, we can do it again. (Takes out his RYNO V)
  • Cragmite #1: ("DESTROY THAT LOMBAX!!")
  • Electross: (Sees Ratchet and the group on a holo-screen) RATCHET!! (On communication) ALL CRAGMITES!! DO NOT ATTACK THE LOMBAX!! FOCUS ON HOLDING OFF THE TANKS UNTIL THEY ARE DESTROYED!! AND SOME OF YOU GET INSIDE THE SHIP AND STOP THE SACK OF BULLSHIT FROM REACHING ME!!
  • Cragmite #5: ("YOU'RE STILL SHOWING COMPASSION FOR LOMBAXES?!? WHAT HAS THIS ONE EVER DONE FOR YOU?!?") (While they were talking, Ratchet activates his hoverboots, grabs Talwyn, Cronk and Zephyr, and begins hovering away while they were distracted)
  • Electross:...He...uh...
  • Cragmite #1: ("Let's just destroy the Lombax before we continue with his silly demands, and--") (Sees that the group is gone)...("WHERE DID THEY GO?!?")
  • Ratchet: HEY, BUG-BRAINS!! (They see the group near the door as Ratchet has his Cryomine Glove) CATCH! (Throws a Cryomine at them, and it explodes, freezing any Cragmite within it's blast radius)...(Sighs) Well, father, your inventions really start to impress me. Let's go! (The group enters the door)

Throwne Room.

  • Electross sighs.
  • Electross: "I'm surprisingly not mad. My race are still as foolhardy and xenophobic as usual."
  • Shifu: "This is still an extreme way to just punish a few bandits! And they clearly ignored your orders about Rachet!"
  • Electross: "I know, I know! I'm sorry! I, I gotten emotional, and.... I just lost it."
  • ???: "YOUR GONNA LOSE MORE THEN YOUR SANITY IN A SECOND, BUG?!"
  • Toron charges through and battle cries, carring a Cragmite Hammer torowrds Electross!
  • Electross actavates a sheild on his body that protacts against Toron's attack!
  • Electross: "Why, are you doing this to me, Toron!? Until now, I have NEVER done anything personal to you! I am sorry for what Bradly did, but you had no right to do did what you did! It's no wonder why even your own race has forsaken you like the hopeless war-monger you are!"
  • Toron: "OH, SO IT'S WRONG OF ME TO TRY AND CONVINCE KING CHULK TO DELCLAIR WAR ON EQUESTIA AS HIS FORMER GENERAL BECAUSE PRED JUDU DES KEEPS GETTING AWAY WITH MURDERING OUR PEOPLE AND THEN SOME!?"
  • Icky: "Oh great. Another Rougber."
  • Toron: "SO WHEN I DESIDED TO GET SOME OF THE FINEST MINOTAURS TO LAY WASTE TO MANEHATTEN, CELESTIA OF ALL PEOPLE STOPPED ME BEFORE THE ATTACK WAS CARRIED OUT?! CHULK UNFAIRLY BANISHED ME TO THIS HELLHOLE THANKS TO THE STUPID UNITY?! I HATE THE UNITY?! ALL I WANT IS FOR PRED TO BE MET WITH THE EXICUTIONERS AX?! IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK!?"
  • Electross: "The hunter Pred Judu Des is only acting like he is because he is pressured by a family legacy, as well as fearing the mythic creature community is still out to harm Equestia. And right now, the actions of idiots like you is only making his actions look and feel justifiable! Pred may as well ACTSELLY be considered a hero for what he is doing!"
  • Toron roared?!
  • Toron: "DON'T YOU DARE SAY THAT?! PRED'S NO HERO?! HE'S A MURDERIOUS MANIAC?!"
  • Electross: "I won't deny that he's, horrendusly misguided. But your even worse if you believe harming cute little horses is gonna make your people acknowlage you again. It won't. It will only make you look like a REAL monster, and in turn, make Pred Judu Des look like he was right, and if the ponies feel like he was right, he will only become powerful enough to the point where public backlash will force Celestia to comdemn all races to his destructive habits. So in the way, Pred is not gonna be the real death of the mythic beast community. IT IS REAL MONSTERS LIKE YOU HURTING PEOPLE WITH YOUR HATE AND FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THE PONIES BELIEFS?!"
  • Shifu: "Electross is right, Toron. Pred will only look more right if you continue to act like the beast he thinks you and your people are! Stop it now, or end up being yet another causalty to this madness."
  • Toron: I'M NOT AFRAID OF DEATH!! IF I MUST DIE, THEN IT MUST BE DONE WITH ME GETTING WHAT I DESERVE: THE DEATH OF THE JUDU DES CLAN!!
  • ???: Not if we can help it! (Ratchet and his group appear)
  • Lodgers: RATCHET!!
  • Toron: Well, well, if it isn't the little rat who left Electross for making a questionable choice!
  • Skipper: What? You guys know?
  • Clank: Yes. The Hellfire Phoenix of Tartarus explained it to us, and the Demon Vultures and Grimmer are getting help as we speak.
  • Toron: HELP?!? YOU'RE GETTING HELP?!?
  • Ratchet: That's right, Toron! Now leave Electross alone!
  • Toron: Or what? (Manages to wear Electross' shield down by smashing it)
  • Electross: WHAT THE--?!? (Toron is able to strike Electross with the hammer, smashing him into a wall as debris crumbles on top of him)
  • Talwyn: ELECTROSS!!
  • Darwin: "SIR?!"
  • Trisha: FATHER!!!
  • Toron: Oh, that felt good! Alright, who else is willing to say hello to Dil in the depths of hell?!?
  • Ratchet: (Takes out his RYNO V) Toron, we both know who's gonna win this fight!
  • Toron: We'll see about that, Lombax! (Yells as he charges for the group with the hammer at the ready)
  • Shifu: (Kung Fu-kicks Toron towards a wall, and his size punches a hole through it)
  • Toron: (He manages to stop his free-fall by grabbing onto an old support, and lands safely onto the ground) ALRIGHT, THAT DOES IT!! I'M BRINGING THIS WHOLE THING DOWN!! (Uses the energy hammer to pound the ship, causing ground-shaking tremors) WHOEVER IS STILL MONITORING THE TANKS, FIRE AT WILL!!! (A centaur in the last tank is able to press a button before a Cragmite stabs him and kills him, and the tank manages to punch a hole into the ship)
  • Computer Voice: Warning, warning! Port of the ship has been breached by maximum amount of damage.
  • Toron: (Continues smashing the hammer on the ship, causing integrity to get disrupted, and causing slow collapsing of the ship. Robots panic as the ship starts getting destroyed)
  • Clank: Toron is going to destroy the entire ship just to get everyone to do as he says.
  • Ratchet: Not on my watch! I'll just use my hoverboots to- (Gun cocks were heard from behind, and they see it's a few Cragmites)
  • Cragmite #5: ("Hands in the air, Lombax!")
  • Ratchet:... (Falls down the ledge and dodges the gunfire) Well, that was a bit too easy!
  • Clank: But what about Talwyn, Cronk, and Zephyr?
  • Ratchet: The Lodgers can protect them. Come on, we need to stop Toron from destroying the ship! (He uses the hoverboots to safely get down to the ground, and lands right behind Toron) THAT'S FAR ENOUGH, TORON!! (Takes out his RYNO V) Surrender quietly, and nobody gets hurt! (Suddenly, Cragmite soldiers point their guns at him from behind)... Crud!
  • Cragmite #6: ("Drop your weapon, Lombax!")
  • Toron: (Chuckles) Looks like you're out of luck, you little rat! Looks like I- (Cragmites then hold him at gunpoint)... Didn't think that though all the way! (Puts down his energy hammer, and puts his hands up) Well. At least Electross isn't surviving this.
  • ???: "GUESS AGAIN, YOU MORONIC SIMPLTON!?"
  • Electross suddenly appears from nowhere and pounces on Toron!
  • Toron: "OOF?! HOW CAN YOU STILL BE ALIVE?! YOU WERE CRUSHED BY DEBRE!?"
  • Electross: "That's the thing about my people. When you think you killed a Cragmite, you need to make sure it is dead and not momentarly knocked out!? We Cragmites are QUITE durable!?"
  • Electross shows surprising strentgh smacking and slamming Toron around like a ragdoll!
  • The Cragmites pointing guns at Rachet and Clank were momentarly distracted.
  • Ratchet: (Manages to disable the distracted Cragmites with his wrench, pulls out his Omniblasters, and blasts away on his hoverboots) HOW MUCH LONGER UNTIL THOSE 7 GET HELP?!?
  • Clank: I do not know, Ratchet! Only time will tell! (Ratchet fires his Omniblasters at the Cragmites as he hovers across the area dodging their gunfire. Some use their disintegration technique to avoid the attacks, while others are disabled by them)

Meanwhile...

  • Skipper: (He and the other Lodgers are fighting off the Cragmites threatening Talwyn, Cronk, and Zephyr) HOW DO YOU LIKE THE TASTE OF PENGUIN FURY, YOU BUG-PSYCHOES?!?
  • Shifu: We need to keep the Dimensionator safe until we get it to a safe place for use!
  • Icky: F*** waiting! (Takes the Dimensionator) DIMENSIONATOR, FIND DIMENSION X2-49! (Activates the device, and a large portal opens up, sucking all the Cragmites through, including Electross as he ended up letting go of Toron!)
  • Electross: WHOA, WHOAA!!
  • Shifu: ICKY, STOP, YOU'RE SUCKING IN ELECTROSS!!
  • Icky: OH, CRAP!! (Deactivates the Dimensionator, preventing Electross from being sucked in, as he resumed taking on Toron!)... Sorry! (Chuckles)
  • Cragmite #7: ("Destroy that thing!")
  • Skipper: LET'S GET OUT OF HERE!! TALWYN, CRONK, ZEPHYR, HELP RATCHET AND CLANK!! (The Lodgers run off with the Dimensionator as the Cragmites give chase)
  • Talwyn: You heard him, let's go! (Grabs their hands, and flies to the hole in the wall with her jetpack)

Front of Ship

  • Ratchet: (He continues battling the Cragmites, throwing a Fusion Grenade at one of them, and shooting another with an Omniblaster) THERE'S TOO MANY OF THEM!! WE NEED TO GET ELECTROSS TO USE THE DIMENSIONATOR!!
  • Clank: Well, he's currently handling Toron at the moment, so we need to make sure none of the Cragmites stop him!
  • Electross: (Continues beating up Toron, and he keeps wailing on him until Toron grabs him by the neck)
  • Toron: NO MORE OF THAT, BUG!! (Starts choking Electross)
  • Ratchet: (Sees this, and manages to fire a blast at him, causing him to let go of Electross, and get Toron's attention) Oh, boy! We are so screwed!
  • Toron: (Charges towards Ratchet and Clank)
  • Ratchet: (He strafes out of the way, and Toron's horns get stuck in the wreckage of a tank)
  • Toron: URRGH!! URRRRGGGGHHH!!! I'M STUCK!!
  • Ratchet: Electross, get to the Dimensionator, quick!
  • Talwyn: (Appears with Cronk and Zephyr on her jetpack) Don't worry, the Lodgers are keeping it safe from the Cragmites! But I feel they might need your help.
  • Zephyr: Them guys are running for their lives from them Craggy-mites as we speak!
  • Electross: Then we'd better move fast!
  • Ratchet: We'll protect you every step of the way until help arrives! (They make it to the door barely dodging gunfire, and the Cragmites pursue them inside. Meanwhile, Toron manages to get unstuck, and follows them as well)

Inside Ship

  • Jeb was seen with the other robots.
  • Jeb: "Don't worry fellow robots! As long as yer with Ol' Jeb, everyone here is safe!" (Suddenly, a blast punched a hole in the wall, and robots started to panic) WHOA, WAIT! DON'T PANIC! EVERYTHING IS OKAY!! THEY'RE NOT EVEN ATTACKING US!
  • Qui Drone #1: Well, why not?
  • Jeb: I don't know, they must not give a damn about us since they have more important things to do.
  • Shifu: (He and the other Lodgers, as well as Trisha and Darwin, are seen running from the Cragmites with the Dimensionator) We must lose these guys!
  • Trisha: And I think it would be a good idea if Electross would use the Dimensionator so HE won't be one of the many Cragmites who are sucked back where they belong.
  • Icky: No s***! It was still a stupid idea to unleash them to begin with, too! I don't care if Bradly needed to be avenged, HE JUST BROUGHT THE RISK ON UNLEASHING THESE MONSTERS ON EQUESTRIA!!
  • Darwin: We cannot blame him for what he did! We just need to make sure he sets things right.
  • Cragmite #8: (More Cragmites appear with energy hammers) ("EAT THIS!") (The heroes dodge the attack, barely able to preserve the Dimensionator) ("We cannot allow Electross to use that device!")
  • Iago: GET AWAY FROM THAT HELMENT, YOU BIG OVERGROWN BUGS!! (The Cragmites prepare to smash the Dimensionator until something hits them behind, and when the Cragmites fall to the ground, it is revealed that Ratchet and the group have appeared)
  • Fidget: Well, there you guys are! What took you so long?
  • Ratchet: Oh, you know, just fighting off a bunch of old enemies of ours! Now come on! We need to find a safe place to use the Dime- (Suddenly, they are surrounded by more Cragmites, which aim their weapons at them growling menacingly)... I am NOT having a good time here.
  • Electross: Quick, give me the Dimensionator, I'll send them ba- (Suddenly, a Cragmite snatches it from the Lodgers)
  • Cragmite #1: ("I don't think so! We're not allowing you to use this thing anymore! And to make sure we finally have these new worlds to ourselves...") (Takes out an energy hammer and prepares to destroy the Dimensionator with it)
  • Ratchet: NO! DON'T- (The Cragmites hold him at gunpoint to stop him)
  • Cragmite #1: ("Finally, it's time for us to spread our reach across the UUniverses! And with this thing destroyed, nothing will stop us from-")
  • ???: STOP!!
  • Cragmite #1: (Growls in aggravation, "What now--") (He sees that the other Lodgers, Celestia, Luna, the Mane 6, and the rest of the Anti-Team Nefarious Freedom Fighters have arrived)
  • Celestia: You will not do such a thing to our worlds, you monsters! (Teleports the Dimensionator to Electross, and then a fight erupts as all the people begin battling the Cragmites)
  • Ratchet: Electross, quick, use the device!
  • Electross: Right! DIMENSIONATOR, FIND DIMENSION X2-49! (Activates the device, and it opens a giant portal that begins sucking up all the Cragmites)
  • Cragmite #1: (Roars in panic, "NO! NOOOOOO!!! WE WERE SO CLOSE!!! SO CLOSE!!!") (All the Cragmites are finally sucked through the portal, and when it's done, the Dimensionator suddenly malfunctions)
  • Electross: What the?!? What's going on?
  • Clank: Oh, no! It looks like the Dimensionator is having a power fluctuation! I feel that it will explode any minute!
  • Talwyn: And we'll never be able to get it out of here in time, nor can we get out in time!
  • Celestia: Yes, we can! We can teleport out of here.
  • Electross: Well, if you must, get all my robots evacuated! I need to get the Dimensionator to a place that will be able to preserve part of their home so you can rebuild it for them.
  • Lord Shen: Rebuild it?
  • Electross: Please! You guys owe me dearly for helping protect it from my enemies!
  • Icky: He's right, guys! He's done nothing wrong. Trying to get that Jewel was just from his confused and determined mind! He's not like the other Cragmites!
  • Cronk: But, Electross, if you find a good place for the Dimensionator to be destroyed... You'll die!
  • Electross: Well, it's probably best that I made a brilliant Cragmite sacrifice! It is something noble for a Cragmite to do.
  • Darwin:... No! Sir, please!
  • Electross: Don't talk me out of it! Just go! Save yourselves!
  • Trisha:... Father, please!
  • Electross: Go! Just know that I will always care for you and the rest of the robots out there!
  • Celestia: We need to go! Now! (They teleport away, and Electross heads out, unaware that Toron was watching all this, and followed him)
  • Electross: (He makes it to a door, but he is eventually caught by Toron) WHAT?!? TORON, YOU'RE CRAZY, THIS THING IS ABOUT TO EXPLODE!!
  • Toron: Good! I don't care about dying! But I'd better make sure that this hunk of junk you call home is no longer able to prosper!
  • Electross: LET ME GO, TORON!!
  • Voice: Self-destruct in 20 seconds!
  • Toron: YOU WILL PAY FOR COSTING ME MY REVENGE!!
  • Electross: LET ME GO!! (Tries reaching for the door, but Toron keeps pulling on him)
  • Voice: Self-destruct in 10 seconds!
  • Toron: SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR HOME, ELECTROSS!!
  • Electross: (Gets angry, punches Toron hard in the face, and throws him and throws the Dimensionator down through the door) This, is for Bradly! (Electross presses a button, and the door closses, locking Toron in!)
  • Toron: WHAT?!? NO!!!
  • Voice: Self destruct in 5...4...
  • Toron:  NOOOOOOOOO!!!
  • Voice: 3... 2... 1... (From the ship, the explosion is seen causing minor damage to the ship, but enough to keep it standing, and the heroes look to see the horror of what just happened)
  • Trisha:... (Falls to the ground crying oil) FATHER, NOO!!! (Cries)

Chapter 6: Toron's Comeuppance

  • Skipper: "....... Once again..... A moment of silence.... To honor our fallen."
  • Zephyr: "..... I never thought I would feel remorseful like for a Craggy-Mite."
  • Cronk: "Neither did I."
  • Rachet: ".... I'm.... Surprised myself."
  • Lord Shen: "Ugh.... At least those Cragmite beasts took care what was left of the illegally gained tec for us... Along with hopely the only outcasts who know how to use tec."
  • Rachet: "Well, there's still that Tussle guy. I'd keep an eye out for him."
  • Chi Fu: "I'll see to it he becomes a wanted orc for the Galactic Federation to persue!"
  • Talwyn: "I just wish, we got to give Electross a proper goodbye."
  • ???: "Assuming if I was going anywhere?"
  • Electross appeared ok, abeit battle damaged.
  • Trisha: "FATHER!?"
  • Trisha zoomed over and hugged Electross!
  • Electross: "Everyone, I'm sorry for all my mistakes. I never should've gone after that jewel to-"
  • Spongebob screams in fear!
  • Electross: "Uh, since when is screaming assusiated with-"
  • A fist punches Electross to a wall, to his surprise, it was a hidiously scarred up and burned Toron!
  • Toron: "HA!? I, SURVIVED, DRAGON FIRE, DEADLIER THEN THAT EXPLOUDITION!? YOU JUST SCREWED YOURSELF FOREVER!? NOW YOU'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO "HELP" YOUR STUPID RACE, ELECTROSS!?"
  • Electross: "Hardly. I understood the Dimentionitor skematics well enough, that in any case I lose the original, (brings out a new dimentionizor), I would have a back-up."
  • Toron: "WHAT?!"
  • Rachet: "Electross, you clever son of a Quazar!"
  • Toron: "THAT, MEANS, NOTHING!? YOU HAVE NOTHING TO PUREIFY THOSE STUPID BUGS WITH?! AND EVEN THEN, THEY HATE YOU EVEN MORE NOW?!"
  • Electross: "It's an issue that one day, I will fix. I'll have to relie, on my own wits to purify the Cragmites. But I will, offer them, at the least, an apology gift, in the form of someone, they hate even more then me, FOR STEALING THEIR TECKNOWAGEY!?"
  • Toron: "And who is the stupid basturd that is gonna-"
  • Toron made a surprised face.
  • Toron: "You, wouldn't, fucking dare?!"
  • Electross: "Oh, good choice of famous last words."
  • Toron was both scared and angry!
  • Toron battled cried and tried to get Electross!
  • Electross: DIMENSIONATOR, FIND DIMENSION X2-49! (A small portal opens up, and Toron grabs the ground trying not to get sucked in)
  • Toron: YOU... YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS, ELECTROSS!! I SWEAR IT!!
  • Electross: I sincerely doubt that, Toron! Goodbye!
  • Toron: NOOOOOOOOOOOO- (Gets sucked into the portal as it closes)

Dimension X2-49

  • Toron: Uhhgh... What... What happened? I... (Looks to see all the Cragmites looking angrily at him)... Uh... (Chuckles) Come on, you guys! I was just kidding! With the whole 'stealing your technology' thing? (Chuckles) Wasn't that just hilarious?

Later...

  • Toron: (He is seen with his head trapped in a restraining device as a Cragmite prepares to execute him with an energy hammer) NOO! NOOOO!! NOOOOOO-HO-HO-HOOOO!!!

Equestria

  • Talwyn: (As some robots are seen repairing the ship) Are you sure you two can't return with us to the Freedom Fighters?
  • Zephyr: As much as we want to, Talwyn, I think we owe it to Electross to give him some company.
  • Cronk: Yeah. With us, he's sure to never have any problems with other marauders trying to destroy his home.
  • Talwyn: (Softly sobs)... Well, if this is what you want, then... I'll never forget you two! (The three hug each other)
  • Applejack:... (Softly sobs)...
  • Pinkie: Applejack... Are you crying from the outside?
  • Applejack: No! Of... Of course not! It's... It's just that, one of the Cragmites got my eye, and... (Sighs) Yes!
  • Talwyn: Will you come and visit us sometime?
  • Zephyr: Why not? What foster fathers would we be if we didn't do such a durn thing?
  • Bradly was already repaired by Electross and he saw what was happening.
  • Bradly: "(Sigh)..... Zephyr, Cronk, a word?"
  • Zephyr and Cronk saluted Bradly!
  • Zephyr and Cronk: "SIR!?"
  • Bradly: "Look, first of all... I want to, apologies, for mistreating your friends. I, was just looking out for father. And I have to thank you for getting rid of Toron, though granted, you only helped in stopping him, more or less. But most of all. As much as I appresiate you wish to keep father company, it's not nessersary."
  • Zephyr: "Sir?"
  • Bradly: "Electross will always make new family with whatever robots he can get, most likely more Hornets, Nefarious Troopers, and Qui Drones that cross paths with Equestia again. He never has to worry about being alone. Espeically now, cause you lougers were nice enough to convince the Galactic Federation and those Grand Council guys to drop the charges for messing with illegal tec and... Other things like, accsidental tec introduction to less advance races, criminals espeically, conspiracty to free a corrupt race, conspiracty to go after a sacred but unstable jewel, and actually freeing said corrupt race. But Cronk, Zephyr. You two, already have a family. With Talwyn, Rachet, Clank, and, their assorted misfits. By all means, we'll be more then happy to be allies to you guys at the least. Gives us an easier way to collect fallen Hornets and Nefarious Troopers. But it's obvious Talwyn has a greater use for you two then Electross the reviver can ever do. Being part of her family."
  • Cronk: ".... Is, that an order sir?"
  • Bradly: ".... Yes soldier. That's an order. DISMISS?!"
  • Zephyr and Cronk: "SIR YES SIR?!"
  • Talwyn said nothing and hugged Zephyr and Cronk!
  • Rachet: ".... Ya did good, Brad. Ya did good."
  • Bradly: "Well, that, and there was also marmuaders that wanted to scrap those two for scrap metal to become blades. I also did it to protact them, and to discourage more attacks."
  • Clank: "Ah, giving a girl her fosters back, AND preventing them from getting harmed again. It's great to see you do have a nice side, Brad."
  • Bradly: "Oh, that's just me. I tend to be, rough with strangers. But you proved to be not bad at all."
  • Icky: "Ok, new question now, uh, if Electross is still staying in Equestia, wouldn't it be a good idea to move him somewhere safer so that cragmite tec won't end up into the hands of those badlanders again?"
  • Celestia: "My thoughts exactly. Electross, please understand that for security reasons, you and your people will have to move in to Hayfield 64. It would further discourage more attacks by bold criminals."
  • Electross: "Well, I was thinking of getting the ship out of there anyway. And about time too! It's the start of Landscape Crab mating season! Ugh.... Those creatures like to mate in the city for some reason.... You do NOT want to know what a landscape's crap mating ritual looks like!"
  • Everyone: "THEN DON'T SAY ANYTHING!?"
  • Rachet: "Oh, and Electross, word of advice. If anyone messes with your kids again, one thing you have to promise me: Please, don't use your race as a punishment for any future jerk again! Trust me when I say, using a hostile race to punish an asshole in your life is OVERKILL?!"
  • Electross: "I already have plans to consider more, alternate ways to deal with that sort've thing again."
  • Bradly: "(Sigh).... I just feel awful on what I did to that Saytr bandit. If I wasn't so crazy about protacting father, then maybe-"
  • ???: "Oh would you relax already?!"
  • Dil was seen still alive and well and had a giant banage on his gut!
  • Dil: "You didn't even cut me in half! You just stabbed me, REALLY PAINFULLY, enough so that I ended up in a death-like coma! That coma made me realise that I need to persue a MUCH more honest career! So, I was thinking I work for you and your dad!"
  • Icky: "But, aren't you, an exsiler?"
  • Dil: "Yeah, but not like how Toron was. I was more of a victim of extremely bad luck after the Griffin Mafia malmitulated my people's weakling mayor to banish me to the Badlands after I exposed a crime boss's location!"
  • Electross: "Then why protact him?"
  • Dil: "Actselly, I wasn't trying to protact Toron. I hated the jerk. You see-"

Cut-a-way.

  • A Litteral Tree Bark Scorpian stings Dil in the butt, sends him flying, screaming in pain, and inconviently where Bradly was about to strike!

Cut-A-Way ends.

  • Dil: "And not only am I still going through the symptoms, but now I have an ugly but badass scar in my gut! Pluside, chicks dig scars!"
  • Icky: "Yeah, but I'd wait until it heals up before you go showing it off, pal. How many symptoms did ya go through so far?"
  • Dil: Well, so far, Nausea, fatigue, muscle spasms, and swelling. Luckily, the swelling has wore off... (Sees his arm is swelling up)... I guess it's on and off.
  • Zephyr: Though, if we must stay with the Freedom Fighters, we'll need to stay out of any new Ratchet and Clank game that comes out since possible fans believes we're still dead.
  • Cronk: Yeah. Unless they make the game have us come back from the dead, of course!
  • Talwyn: I'm at least glad you're alive AND back with us.
  • Ratchet: As am I!

Later.

  • After the freedom fighters left, Ponyville is just about finished being cleaned up.
  • Lord Shen: "Well, it seems we are just about done here. Well, let us return home, everyone."
  • Celestia: "Actselly Shen, since your still here, I have been meaning to ask the lougers to attend a very speical celebration for someone who has done great things for Equestia, two espeically great ones recently."
  • Lord Shen: "Didn't we already did one for Twilight?"
  • Twilight: "Actselly, (nerviously laughs)... It's kinda, Discord's turn."
  • Lord Shen face was frozen in surprise.

The Entire World of Equestia.

  • Lord Shen's voice: "WHAT?!" (Echos are heard).

Back to where our heroes are.

  • Lord Shen: "WHY GIVE HIM A CELEBRATION!? HE DIDN'T EVEN CONTRIBUTED IN THIS EPISODE ONCE?!"
  • Celestia: "I know, but he did enough great things, so why not show him we appresiate the contributions he DID give. I promise Discord will be on his best behavior, cause this celebration celebrates his good reformed nature only. It'll be admitetly called off if he gets too, excited, and set for another day so he'll behave himself."
  • Lord Shen: "Then WHY are we needed other then to attend the festivities!?"
  • Celestia: "Well, we have tried to give Discord his celebration before, but... He always ends up getting.... Too excited. The first time, he turned Mayor Mare into a giant frog. Second time, he made it rain cakes. Though I didn't complained too much myself, neither did Pinkie, it did kinda made a mess. A 3rd time, he made litterally EVERYTHING dance! Even the houses and trees! the 4th time-"
  • Squidward: "Ok, we get it! Discord acts like a twat when he gets excited! He's asentually being a magical verson of Spongebob."
  • Lord Shen: "Oh, I get it. Your asking us to monitor the idiot and make sure he STAYS on his best behavior! You sure Fluttershy isn't enough?"
  • Celestia: "Normally she can handle it, but sometimes when a Draconqouus gets too excited, they just can't help themselves."
  • Spongebob: "Say no more Princess. You caught us on a pretty slow week anyway. Alot of our usual villains went off to VCON this week being held by a new host. So there's little need to worry about them."
  • Celestia: "What is a "VCON"?"
  • Icky: "It's an all bars Villains Convention held in the lawless planet Mugshotra. They do it EVERY May for the most part. No one really knows what goes on in VCON cause it's never run by the same host."
  • Shifu: "Well let's hope it's just them having their usual celebration for evil shenanigans and nothing serious is in the works."

Epilogue

Mugshotra.

  • VCON, the villains convention, is filled with an abarage of villains, including the Villain Leage, The Scourge Empire, and Team Nefarious.
  • Darkness Qui and her assusiates are there as well and have met up with Mirage, Cobra, Dr. Nefarious and Dark Dragon.
  • Darkness Qui: "Ah, the villain team leaders of this universe. What a surprise. I didn't know you guys attend this strange gathering of villains here! I mean, when have they ever held a Villains Convention? Aren't we all asentually criminals or worse?"
  • Lord Cobra: "Ah, good morrow to you as well Qui. True, in your universe riddled with CM terratory fanactics, this sort of gathering is unrealistic. But since we villains in this universe behave ourselves here, we can get away doing mundane and normal things too. I mean, we have lives outside of trying to congure the universes, Qui. That conquest stuff is more of a job then what Alternate Villains deemed as a life ambition."
  • Dr. Nefarious: "Maybe if you AUU villains thinked more like us, you can have VCONS too!"
  • Dark Dragon: "That is, if being a universe of Junjies is too tempting to you!"
  • Mirage, Mang, Dr. Nefarious, and Dark Dragon laughed!
  • Darkness Qui: ".... (Sarcasticly) Hilarious. (Seriously) If it's any consulation, I am aiming to refrign being like that for future plans of mine and remembering the teachings of General Tex."
  • Dr. Nefarious: "We know. You told us that story about those giant bird monsters once."
  • Mirage: "Wait, who's General Tex?"
  • Celisus: "He's asentually one of the few villains from our worlds that still has commen decenty and aren't like the "Junjies" you discriped. Oh, speaking of which, Lord Cobra, are you or were you aware of that yarge-out Junjie and his attempt in trying to bust out alot of our villains from Oranos?"
  • Lord Cobra: "OHHHHHHHH, DO NOT GET ME STARTED ON THAT!? NOT ONLY DO I HAVE TO PAY A REDICLUIOUSLY EXSPENCEIVE AMOUNT TO A UNIVERSE I ALREADY DON'T PLAN TO VISIT, BUT THE LEAGE HAS A LAUGHABLE REPUTATION IN THE AUU THANKS TO JUNJIE?! For that, he didn't get to come to VCON! He has to clean the leage's monster pens for a week! Expect him to smell like fecal matter and shame for a few weeks."
  • Narcotic: "Well, you can't tecnecally physically smell shame, cause it's an abstract conspect and-"
  • Darkness Qui: "Quiet Narcotic, adults are talking."
  • Narcotic: "Aw...."
  • QP: "Burn."
  • ???: "WOOO-HOOO?!"
  • Hank the Mutant Frog was seen surfing on the floor as Batula and Anima were cheering him on!
  • Hank: "COWABONGA, DUDES AND GIRL DUDES!?"
  • Darkness Qui: "Oh no.... Hank got out again?"
  • Lord Cobra: "But didn't you worked with him and Anima and Batula once or twice?"
  • Darkness Qui: "Yes, but because they failed alot, and that Hank is asentually another Narcotic, he's more like an annoying pest then a useful villain!"
  • Dr. Nefarious: "Why do you think he's still an Indie Villain?"
  • Hank came up to Qui and the Villain Team Leaders!
  • Hank: "Hiya Qui! How's it happening? I got out of jail again and I brought Anima and Batula for the ride! Isn't the con fun?"
  • Anima: "THE CON!?"
  • Batlua: "THE CON-ULA?!"
  • Darkness Qui: "I, must ask though. I heard this convention is never run by the same host. Who is it this time?"
  • Cobra: "Well, it's some form of bloodly surprise obviously. I'm sure this host plans to reveil undesided-gender-self soon enough."
  • Intercom: "Villains and Villainesses. I asks ya's to approcuh the great stage at the plaza for the reveiling of your host!"
  • Dr. Nefarious: "OH BOY! LAST YEAR CONVENTION'S HOST WAS DOCTOR DOOM?! HIS EVIL PLANS FOR THE FUTURE WERE AWESOME?! Too bad the Avengers foiled him. Again."
  • Cobra: "Oh, I remember the convention when it was hosted by Lex Luther of the brotherhood of evil. His plans were awesome.... Until the Justice League trashed his dreams again."
  • Dark Dragon: "How about when Skelator was hosting? He looked like he was gonna surprise the Villain Community with a bang! But then He-Man made him go down in a wimper."
  • Darkness Qui: "It sounds like these hosts don't live up to their promises of surprime evil."
  • Cobra: "Well, again, thanks to the heroes, the evil plans by our randomly selected hosts are just to get excited for. Tragic, I know. It be AWESOME to have the ONE evil plan to actselly accomplish more then just deminstracting evil."
  • The Villains have reached the stage.
  • Suddenly, a giant snake silluette appeared center of the stage as a huge screen unfolds.
  • Giant Snake: "Ladies and germs, what yous see before you, is not your host. I am merely gonna present him to yas, cause he's considered to be so bad a villain, he can't risk showing up for VCON for reasons best left in the need-ta-knows basis, capish? Alright, so I proudly present, the VCON host!"
  • The screen flashes and shows the same figure from past episodes.
  • ???: "Hello, villains of these universes and beyond. I brought you all to this hopeless planet of Mugshotra to deminstract a plan so powerfuly evil, I must instruct you to keep what you heard to yourself. Powerful magic is in place to prevent the High Council from rudely hearing what I say in this very building. Now, you're most likely intriged about certain events, such as ones that concerned with the futuristic amusement park insodent in Equestia, the event behind the unfortunate fate of the Evil Chackle, The Komodo Dragon Invadion in Equestia over it's newly established Kung Fu club, The Mythos Black Market momentarly coming back, Equestia's little Keyhole dishastor, The sudden return of that anti-butt tattoo communist Starlight, and just recently and abit, anti-climaticly, a slightly faultered attempt to use a misguided Cragmite to unknowingly destroy Equestia using a powerful jewel... Only for it to be RUDELY usurped by idiotic marmauders lead by a now dead Minotaur Bandit king."
  • Darkness Qui: "I heard about those in the news and radio. Are you implying you had something to do with those, buster?"
  • ???: "Why yes. I am implying it. Think about it. Why else would that faulty machine Ringmaster Omega would even come to Equestia other then his programming? He wasn't even planning to go there at first till I, indirectly persauded him. The Evil Chackle was my first attempt to interact with the local mortal villains, till it turns out the gatherings of the Evil Chackle weren't secluded enough, so I went with VCON, a hyperly secretive villains gathering. I must apologies to Mang, but I kinda malmitulated Junjie to break out Dai Song and those Komodos. It was for a well intentioned cause to prevent the Lougers from getting new members! The Mythos and Equestian Keyhole situations, while they were obviously bested by the lougers, I at least gain the fruits of the labors, in the form of speically altered Illinos Chrsitals, and Darkness Ooze. I gave the silly horse Starlight the idea of break out a talented assassin from Qui's universe named Caera, but it appears she was a victim of, shall we say, a homosexual bat-being created by those incompident Draconquui. And, well... I explained what happened with Electross the Cragmite."
  • Jafar: "Do pardon my rudeness, but I speak for everyone when I say, I'm not buying it. You can't just appear out of nowhere, uninvited, claim respondsability to those innsodents and expect to-"
  • ???: "(Chuckles evily). I do not blame thy specticisum. I knew there would be doubters. That's why, for a deminstraction, I plan to once again attempt to have Equestia harmed. This time, by that draconquui idiot Discord getting, the dreaded equestian sickess, Magic Flu. I don't nessersarly planned it to succeed however. It is merely a deminstraction that I am respondsable for those events. My magic is capable to make look as if the sickness just appeared out of nowhere like normal sicknesses. Discord also has a bad reputation of being an idiot out of his own mallition, so it will be doubted as him faking it like he did with the "Blue Flu", and knowing the Peacock has a, dis-satisfaction with him, he'll be the one who endangers Equestia. And, here's something speical. The Magic Flu I'll be casting onto Discord, after it has been removed, will compromise the already unstable morality of Shen, already left ravaged by his temper and guilt for his past sins. It will drive Shen to become angerior and angerior in days time when exposed by enough stupidity or even a case of his loved ones almost getting hurt because of sheer childishness. Again, I don't expect this to end with Equestia destroyed. It's likely to be abit stirred at best. No, this is more centered on harming the Lougers and their most powerful ally. And the best part, my magic is incredability undetectable to even the most powerful of the High Council's gods and wizards. It will be but another day gone south to those misfited idiots!"
  • The Villains began to cheer!
  • ???: "Yes, fellow villains! Cheer for me! Cheer for the one villain that makes the misfits dance like little puppets!?"
  • Cobra and Qui are surprisingly not cheering.
  • Darkness Qui: ".... I, don't know why. I should be cheering for this guy cause he made idiots out of those idiots, but... Something about him makes me feel... Uncomfertable."
  • Cobra: "I, also feel uneasy. That presence.... It almost felt akin to the presence I felt back when the leage tried to aquire Sopony, and..."
  • Cobra gasps!
  • Cobra: ".... It's him....."
  • Darkness Qui: "Uh, who?"
  • Cobra, too afraid of what would happen to him, said nothing.
  • Cobra: "Uh, don't concern yourself Qui. I am just.... Uh, OH LOOK! Mr. Frozor's back from Prison and is selling his trademark frozen treats again. You better go get some for us, Qui."
  • Darkness Qui: "Well, if it'll somehow help establish positive feelings with you after the exposure of Celestia's Tirek conspiracty mess, I'll do anything to get back at your good sides."
  • Darkenss Qui walks off as Mang grows more concerned.
  • Mang: "(Quietly) What are you up to this time, you clever evil trickster?"
  • ???: "And now, for your viewing pleasure, villains, I give you... MAGIC FLU!?"
  • The Screen turns on and shows Discord getting excited. Suddenly a strange magic appeared and Discord starts sneesing and crazy things happen!
  • Discord on the screen: "OH NO!? MAGIC FLU!? ON TODAY OF ALL DAYS?! AGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH?!"
  • The Villains but Mang started to laugh!
  • Lord Cobra: "(Quietly)..... What ARE you up to?"
