Story CutscenesEdit

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)
Moths to a Flame:

Depending on your progress in the story, characters you have yet to recruit may appear in these events.

  • Cecil: So the Crystal Core of Darkness went out of control and Spiritus's warriors tried to take advantage of that power...
  • Rinoa: It's all so confusing. How do we stop it?
  • Bartz: I think even the gods are at a loss here, so I don't know what we can do...

(The airship begins to shake)

  • Sazh: Hey, Vaan! What're you doing? The ship's gonna capsize at this rate!
  • Vaan: The rudder's not working! Maybe the ship's broken?
  • Rinoa: Whoa! Isn't this...bad?
  • Bartz: Hold on tight, everyone!
  • Cecil: ...It's no good! We can't hold on like this!

  • All: WAAAAAAH!

  • Rinoa: Owiee...! Is everyone okay?
  • Bartz: I think so...
  • Sazh: Damn... Look at this mess. I guess it's still too early to let Vaan drive.
  • Vaan: I told you it wasn't me! It was the rudder!
  • Cecil: ...Bartz.
  • Bartz: Yeah?
  • Cecil: Does this forest...look familiar to you?
  • Bartz: Familiar? Any way you look at it, it's just your average—
  • Bartz: No, wait a second...
  • Bartz: This is the Great Forest of Moore!
  • Exdeath: Mwa-haha! Precisely!

(Exdeath appears)

  • Bartz: Exdeath!
  • Exdeath: This is a space distorted by the Torsions.
  • Exdeath: It was all too easy to trap you worthless fools here!
  • Vaan: See! It wasn't my fault!
  • Sazh: We get it. We're sorry. But could you save the celebration for later, Vaan?
  • Rinoa: So why did you lure us in here?
  • Exdeath: ...What a foolish question.
  • Exdeath: Isn't it obvious? I will banish you peons together with this space!
  • Cecil: Like you did with my brother!?
  • Exdeath: Exactly! Wander forever in the Void!
  • Bartz: And you really think we're just gonna sit back and let you do whatever you want!?
  • Exdeath: It is time you felt the power of the Void once more.
  • Exdeath: Consider it a reward for hindering my ingenious plan!
The Hero is Always Late:
  • Exdeath: Urg... The power of your wills is so great...
  • Exdeath: ...Mwa-hahaha!
  • Yuffie: What the!? How creepy! He just started laughing for no reason!
  • Faris: Don't let your guard down, Yuffie! I'd wager he's got somethin' up his sleeve!
  • Exdeath: My plan ended in failure, thanks to you. However...
  • Exdeath: The power of wills and the Void may just be enough to see my ambition to fruition!
  • Lenna: What are you saying...?
  • Exdeath: Must I spell it out for you, fool? I am saying it may be worth my while to join your ranks.
  • Exdeath: ...If you can escape from this place, that is.
  • Exdeath: Mwa-hahahaha!

(Exdeath disappears and the forest begins shaking)

  • Vincent: This space is no longer stable... We need to get out before we're imprisoned in here.
  • Yuffie: Wha-wha-what!? Hold on! Where's the exit!?
  • Vincent: Calm down, Yuffie. Can you do it, Mog?
  • Mog: Leave it to me, kupo!
  • Mog: Uh oh, kupo... Something is interfering with my power, so I can't get us out of here.
  • Vincent: Interference...? This can't be a coincidence.
  • Lenna: Oh no... Is this the end for us?
  • Faris: There's no way we're kicking the bucket here! We'll just have to find an exit ourselves!

(Gilgamesh arrives)

  • Gilgamesh: Ha ha! Guess who it is, just in time to save the day!
  • Lenna: Gilgamesh!?
  • Gilgamesh: We'll get out of here, even if I pry open an exit myself! Come on! RAAAAAAH!

(Gilgamesh opens a Torsion for the party)

  • Mog: This is crazy, kupo. It's ignoring all the laws and rules of the world!
  • Gilgamesh: Rules were made to be broken!
  • Yuffie: Whoa! You're so cool, Gilgamesh!
  • Gilgamesh: Thank me later! For now, we need to make like lightning and bolt!

(The party escapes to safety)

  • Bartz: Whew. That was a close call...
  • Faris: We owe you one, Gilgamesh!
  • Gilgamesh: Ha ha! Think nothing of it or my dramatically impeccable timing. The hero is always the last on the scene!
  • Vincent: But just what was Exdeath's aim, I wonder.
  • Yuffie: I wish he would at least have a reason for attacking us! ...Oh?
  • Yuffie: Lookie, lookie, Vincent! A treasure chest!

(Yuffie runs off)

  • Vincent: ...That is most definitely a trap.
  • Faris: He's right. Treasure's got no right being here so conveniently!
  • Vincent: Don't waste your breath on her.
  • Yuffie: Huh!? This is...!

(The party catches up to Yuffie)

  • Bartz: ...Dimensional coordinates.
  • Faris: But who...? You know, forget I asked.
  • Yuffie: No way! This treasure was a total bust!
  • Vincent: I wonder how far he plans on following us.
  • Lenna: But isn't it strange? He tried to banish us to the Void not long ago.
  • Bartz: Perhaps either would've worked fine for that lunatic.
  • Gilgamesh: I'll just pick this up then!

(Gilgamesh arrives)

  • Yuffie: Are you serious, Gilgamesh!?
  • Gilgamesh: Aren't I always? Think about it carefully!
  • Gilgamesh: Exdeath is a spooky phantom. You never know when he's going to appear!
  • Gilgamesh: But if you have these coordinates, he won't be able to catch you unaware anymore.
  • Faris: I suppose it does have some merit...
  • Gilgamesh: But even I, the great Gilgamesh, won't be able to stop him alone.
  • Gilgamesh: If we're all together, though, I'm sure it will work out. We can use this against him.
  • Vincent: Balthier always says the same...
  • Yuffie: Though I prefer the direct approach! It's a lot easier!
  • Gilgamesh: Ha ha, how unexpected of a ninja! Well, it sounds like we're all in agreement, so I'll take a look into his movements.
  • Gilgamesh: And don't forget: I'm your friend forever! You can always trust in me! Hasta la bye bye!

(Gilgamesh runs off)

  • Yuffie: Is that guy a double agent...?
  • Lenna: Let's put our faith in him for now...
  • Bartz: Right... He did save us, after all.
Vantage of the Void:
  • Vivi: Err...
  • Eiko: Hey. What's the matter?
  • Vivi: back is stinging...
  • Eiko: That's all? Come on, Vivi. You've handled worse!
  • Vivi: R-right...
  • Irvine: So he's the incarnation of the evil souls sealed inside a tree? What a pain in the butt that Exdeath is...
  • Krile: Back in our world, he had the power of the Void and tried to erase all existence with it.
  • Krile: His goal must be the same here. He's not someone you can reason with...
  • Irvine: So that's why he's looking for some great power in place of the Void?
  • Tidus: Can't he just keep his crazy ideals to himself?
  • Irvine: Agreed! Trying to erase everything is just nonsense.
  • ???: You simple-minded fools. You could never understand the meaning of power.
  • Vivi: H-huh!? That wasn't me!

  • ???: Mwa-hahaha!
  • Vivi: AHHH!

(Exdeath appears)

  • Tidus: Exdeath!?
  • Exdeath: I changed myself into a thorn and heard you talking.
  • Eiko: So that's why Vivi's back was hurting!
  • Krile: He did the same to me before. I totally let my guard down...
  • Exdeath: It seems you fools understand nothing.
  • Exdeath: So I will teach you. The Void is truly magnificent.
  • Tidus: Nobody asked you!
  • Exdeath: There are two sides to every coin—
  • Exdeath: Bonds and loneliness. Hope and despair. Happiness and sorrow. Everything exists within that reason.
  • Irvine: What are you trying to say?
  • Exdeath: That life infers death. Things that exist will return to nothingness.
  • Exdeath: In sum, existing in this world is meaningless.
  • Exdeath: Which makes the Void the single greatest of all entities. And its divine providence will be known to all worlds!
  • Eiko: Hold it! That's just plain crazy talk and it's making me mad!
  • Vivi: Don't deny the meaning of life! Everyone's doing their best to go on living.
  • Irvine: You said it, Vivi!
  • Exdeath: Humans are such a pitiful existence...
  • Exdeath: Understand this: your actions are meaningless. Someday you will all return to the Void.
  • Exdeath: Mwa-hahahaha!

(Exdeath disappears)

  • Tidus: I guess we should have expected that much from an incarnation of evil souls.
  • Krile: I told you so. It's pointless trying to reason with him...
  • Eiko: And what are you so happy about?
  • Vivi: My back doesn't hurt anymore!
  • Eiko: Ah... Good for you, Vivi.
