WOL: I seem to have fallen senseless. But how did I― That matters not now. I must make haste to where Cosmos is.
<In front of Forsaken Kingdom>
WOL: This gateway emanates a strange power, though not necessarily fell...
WOL: That emblem... It seems that the powers of a god are at work. I must thoroughly analyze whether it is friend or foe before engaging.
WOL: That foe may put up a fight. Perhaps I need some new equipment.
Cosmos: I have been defeated by Chaos. The god of discord, Chaos... His brutal powers destroyed the balance of all things, threatening the fabric of reality itself. All existence is on the brink of doom. Ten of you remain―and you are the last hope left to this world. I implore you. Obtain the light.かなあthat even in a broken world could never fade―the light of the crystals. The crystals embody the strength to face despair. With ten gathered, there is hope yet to save the world. The path to your crystal will be perilous...and different for each and every one of you. But you must believe in and follow your own path. Even if you know not where that path leads...
Squall: Not a problem. I’ve always gotten by on my own.
Zidane: If the treasure were really that easy to find, it wouldn’t be a treasure hurt, would it?
バッツ: No horsing around, though. This isn’t the time for games. It’s time for some serious fun.
オニオン: You don’t have to worry. I’m here with you. If it gets scary, just believe in me!
Terra: I’m counting on you.
???: The paths to our crystals may be different for each of us. But we’ve strength in our allies.
Firion: And if we put that strength together, we’ll have nothing to fear.
Cloud: I don’t know. The god, Chaos, is leading his forces of disorder―and they’re headed straight for us. But I’m ready for whatever comes my way.
Tidus: The tougher the enemy, the more fired up I get!
Cosmos: I thank you all― Though what remains of this world is on the verge of collapse... I must hold it together until you find your crystals... Forgive me... I want to be with you... But allow me to rest... Then soon...
WOL: Cosmos. Your radiant light shall always be with us.
???: Where am I? And how did I get there? I can’t recall a thing―but my finely-tuned senses tell me― There’s someone beyond here waiting for me!
