Script[]

Black Mage All right, so what's this big important moral thingie anyway?
Black Mage (evil side) Fighter is trapped under his moronic Armoire of Invincibility. His life rests in your hands. There are but two options open to you.
Black Mage Sounds reasonable enough.
Black Mage I shall advocate that you simply let him rot under the thing's massive weight. That'll show 'em.
Black Mage Ah-ha! So you're my evil side.
Black Mage Pretty much.
Black Mage So where's my good side then?
Black Mage Well, the thing about that is... y'know, it's all relative.
Black Mage Meaning?
Black Mage Meaning technically I am your good side because that guy is your atrociously evil side.
Black Mage (atrociously evil side) DESTROY THEM!
YOU ARE MAGIC! YOU ARE CHANGE! YOU ARE THE CATALYST OF ALL DESTRUCTION! LIFE IS DEATH. DEATH IS LIFE!
MANIFEST YOUR WILL UPON THE TAPESTRY OF CREATION! END IT NOW!
Black Mage Whoah. That guy is hardcore.
Black Mage Yeah, you could say I'm the lesser of two evils. Literally!
Black Mage No, I don't think I will.
Black Mage Right, I'm just saying you could though, is all.
Black Mage So let me get this straight.
Black Mage Take your time.
Black Mage DO IT!
Cut back to Pravoka.
Red Mage Go ten, go ten, go!
Thief I'm more of a Gohan guy.
Red Mage What?
Thief Er, go five, yay!
Cut back to Black Mage's conscience.
Black Mage DO IT!
Black Mage My choices are "let Fighter die" or "let Fighter die and destroy all of reality in the meantime."
Black Mage WHY AREN'T YOU DOING IT YET!
Black Mage That's a tough choice.
Black Mage We could... compromise.
