Cast Appearing[]


  • Outside Sky Castle


Red Mage and Black Mage heads to the Deathtrap.
Red Mage Everything checks out on the pre-flight. This thing might actually be kinda safe.
Black Mage What makes you qualified to make that kind of judgement?
Red Mage Mastery of animal husbandry, of course.
Black Mage Why is that your answer for everything?
How is that your answer for everything?
Red Mage There is no problem that cannot be overcome by an imaginative and vigorous use of the animal husbandry skill.
Black Mage You had to use "vigorous" in there, didn't you.
Red Mage I've got sketches if you'd like to see what I mean.
Black Mage Oh, no.
We're done with this topic. Beyond done.
Warmech appears.
Warmech Hey.
Red Mage You're a robot.
Warmech Warmech, actually.
Black Mage Nope. That did it. I quit.
I can only accept so many impossible things in one day.

The deathtrap being safe, that airships work at all, and his whole animal sex fetish as a replacement for any field of knowledge thing have already strained that limit to the breaking.
Peace out!

Warmech Who says "peace out" anymore?
Red Mage Seriously.


  • The title of this episode is taken from the fact that, in Final Fantasy, there is exactly a one-in-sixty-four chance that the player will encounter the enemy Warmech on the bridge where Tiamat is fought at the Sky Castle.
