The Light Warriors continue on their way to Pravoka. Slowly.
- In a forest near Pravoka
|The Light Warriors are walking towards Pravoka. Fighter is carrying the Armoire of Invincibility.|
|Black Mage||Oh for the love of evil, not this again.|
|Thief||As team leader, I have to say I don't approve.|
|Red Mage||Agreed. The armoire's massive encumberance rating is fast becoming a major hindrance to our heroic travels.|
|Thief||And that big unwieldly thing will no doubt interfere with my all important flee ability. Plus, the quicker we travel, the less we have to deal with the Nightmare poison.|
|Fighter||I'm sorry you feel that way, fellas. But I've been questing for the Armoire of Invincibility all my life.|
I'm not about to give it up now.
|Black Mage||HOLD IT!|
|Black Mage||Where, oh where to begin. Oh, I know!|
First we've only been on this "quest" of yours for like three days.
Second, you were looking for the Armor of Invincibility, not the armoire.
|Fighter||You are obviously mistaken. I wouldn't be lugging around this impossibly heavy furniture if I hadn't been questing for it.|
|Fighter||I mean, geez, I'm not stupid.|
|Black Mage||It's furniture. Not armor. It does not protect you.|
|Fighter||Ha! Shows what you know. Thanks to the armoire, I haven't been hit by an enemy yet!|
|Black Mage||That's because it crushed you to death before the monster could attack!|
I distinctly remember dancing on your grave.
|Fighter||I'm afraid I don't follow...|
|Black Mage||(holding his knife) Then you must bleed.|
|Red Mage||Wait! I have an even better solution.|
|Same 8-bit time!|
|Same 8-Bit URL.|
- Both the title of this comic and the ending is a reference to the Batman television series. A common catchprase is "Holy (something), Batman!" and episodes often end with the words "Stay tuned, same bat-time, same bat-channel!"
- Black Mage's 'Hold It', plus his stance and the diagonal background refers to the Ace Attorney franchise.
