View Full Version : Quote Nominations
01-01-2010, 09:44 AM
In the Rumble (http://dissidiaforums.com/showthread.php?t=2243), the chosen category following Stages is Quotes, so if you would like to nominate, please do so in this thread :3
We are looking at Story Quotes, meaning battle quotes, encounter quotes, victory quotes etc are all excluded, mainly because they don't have quite the right amount of depth for a rumble.
1. Give the quote a fair amount of context. If this means quoting the entire scene, go ahead.
2. Set it out like a script, with the speaker clear.
3. Give the quote some sort of title that sums up the quote as a whole.
Looking at at every character being involved at least once, with a minimum target of 32 for now (I expect to increase it, but only if people care enough D: ). Also, if you are PSP-less, a good resource for viewing Dissidia cutscenes is here (http://www.youtube.com/user/VersusXIlI), and the script for the entire game is here (http://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/psp/file/939394/57905) (Thanks GUGIDO!)
If you aren't sure how to set it out, I guess I can do it for you. Here's an example of a nomination anyway:
Kefka: You're still alive? You pathetic dregs can't even die properly.
Kefka: Oh, I know. You came here to be destroyed by me, right? Of course! After what you did to Cosmos, who wouldn't wanna follow?
Terra: Tell me. What is it that you know?
Kefka: You wanna hear? Do you? In that case... I'm not telling!
Terra: Stop fooling around!
Kefka: Sorry ma'am. ...Come on, What does it matter anymore? (maniacal laughter) Destruction is the fate of all things. Listen... Do you hear it? Those are fate's footsteps! TAA~! LAA~! PE-YAA~!

There's two that come to mind for me:
Kefka: It's not enough!... Destroy more.. have got to destroy more!
Terra: Just stop! None of this makes any sense!
Kefka: Destruction isn't supposed to make sense! It's only fun when it's senseless! Why create when it can only be destroyed? Why cling to life knowing you have to die? None of it will have meant anything once you do.
Terra: We live to protect what we hold dear. As long as we have that, you can find the meaning on your own.
Kefka: Meaning, shcmeaning! The whole world's going bye-bye, you included! Life... Dreams... Hope... where do they come from? And where do they go? None of that junk is enough to fulfill your hearts! Destruction... Destruction is the only thing worth living! Destroy! Destroy! Destroy! Let's destroy everything!
Terra: It was your broken heart -- you were trying to fill it with destruction. (This misery must not be repeated -- ever. I.. I must keep moving forward!)
Peace is but a shadow of death,
Desperate to forget its painful past...
Though we hope for promising years.
After shedding a thousand tears,
Yesterday's sorrow constantly nears.
... Am I doing it right?

They're fine, yeah, although it's good to give them a title for easy reference during the rumble, but I'll give them one if you're unsure :3
Golbez is feeble
[Exdeath's laughing is heard from off-screen. He teleports in]
Exdeath: "Two losts souls, wandering in the dark. Or is this what they mean by
brotherly love? I did not expect you to be bound yet to the other side, Golbez.
[chuckles] You are a fool and a coward, longing for the light!"
Golbez: "It's none of your concern."
Exdeath: "On the contrary, feeble mortal. For it is I who shall punish those
who betray us!"
BTW if anyone needs the scripthttp://www.gamefaqs.com/portable/psp/file/939394/57905

Hmmm ok I guess I'll leave the titles to you then. I can't think of any at the moment. ^^;

4/32 nominations so far! :3
And I've titled them and have them saved, so don't worry about the organisation of this thread too much :3
No one can take away our time.
Ultimecia: Time waits for no one. You can grab it, but it flies as soon as you loosen your grip. To condense and to bind -- this is all I desire!
Squall: No one can take away our time.
Ultimecia: But all is destined to fade, merely to be swept away by each moment! (Screaming)
Squall: I couldn't stand a day without a past of future. I need to live each moment -- to keep fighting here and now.

Its a bit long... its my favourite Quotes from that lil Jecht vs Tidus Cutscene right before your fight him.
Tidus Vs Jecht
Jecht '' Then lets do this, Huh?''
Tidus ''Your Finished!''
Jecht ''Hmph'' *Pushes Tidus back with...Wind?*
Tidus *Skilla Jumping/Spining*
Tidus ''Heh, Just beginning''
Jecht ''Then How's This?'' *Grunts and Slams Foot in Ground, Knocks Tidus into Statue*
I Fast Forward to the good stuff...
Jecht ''You'll be up on your feet by tomorrrow''
Tidus ''Where are you going?'' ''This isen't over Yet, theres no Tomorrow for me... Unless i Beat you Today!
Jecht ''Pesky little runt'' ''Who do you take after?''
Tidus ''Go ask yourself!''
Thats my fav Quote from FFX Dissidia Story.

Not a half-bad lie :)
OK: "With Cosmos gone, we're doomed to follow. The crystals are the only
reason we're still here..."
Firion: "...Has what we've done actually made a difference? There was never a
way to preserve ourselves, yet she encouraged us to dream... And she knew
those hopes were false the whole time. How cruel can a goddess be?"
Cloud: "...That's not it. All we have to do is focus on saving this world.
This is the center of everything. If we can restore balance here, the other
worlds will come back too. We'll all go home, just how it was. Maybe better."
Tidus: "So, we're not vanishing, but returning... Then our dreams haven't all
been for nothing?"
Cloud: "... ...I made that up."
Tidus: "What? You were lying!?"
Squall: "But...it's not a half-bad lie. Don't you agree, Firion?"
Firion: "Yeah. It's not bad at all."

7/32 nominations :3
A few more:
Just a swarm of insects.
The Emperor: How could I lose... Not once but twice? Who ARE you?
Firion: Just a swarm of insects.
The Emperor: But this is not the end. As long as Chaos exists, so will we. I shall return to rule again...
Firion: You mean, back from the dead?
The Emperor: Indeed... From the depths of hell, to this world once more –
The Emperor: I will be back again! UNGAAAAH!
Emperor: It seems that a pawn's allegiance is not so black and white. She is the proof.
Garland: "f she does not find her light, she will fall to Chaos.
Emperor: And to think it would be at the hands of that clown... How remarkably droll.
Garland: The clown is just as scheming as you are.
Emperor: You would compare me to that gibbering nihilist? No, I have a goal; to escape the ultimate end...and build the future anew.
Just another sadist...
Emperor: What does he know? What is he after?
Kefka: Who cares? He's just another sadist with a god complex...like THAT'S something special!
Emperor: Sephiroth took his own life during the last battle, right in front of me.
Kefka: Seriously? What did he do THAT for!?
Emperor: He must have had some ulterior motive. We'd best keep an eye on him...
01-02-2010, 04:38 PM
Cloud: What did he just say?
Firion: Yeah, that would've sounded more profound without that absurd flourish at the end. Unnngaaah? What a tool.
01-02-2010, 04:41 PM
01-08-2010, 02:30 PM
Jecht: Look what happens when I don't hold back. Well, now you know that nobody can beat me. You're still just a kid. You've got limitless potentials running through your veins. You'll be up on your feet by tomorrow.
Tidus: Where are you going? There's no tomorrow for me, unless I beat you today!
Jecht: Pesky little runt. Who do you take after?
Tidus: Go ask yourself!
01-08-2010, 05:50 PM
Brief Moment of Fatherhood
Jecht: So? Are you ready to move on?
Jecht: I think you had so much on you mind that you couldn't even take your next step.
Tidus: That's not...
Jecht: You're pathetic. Can't even get one thing right without me, can you?
Tidus: I just--
Jecht: Well, if you don't understand it, try just accepting it.
Jecht: Accept that you are weak. Accept the path you've taken. Accept that nothing makes sense in this whole damn world! Once you accept everything, then you can choose your next path--the one path you really want to take.
Firion: (Many people lose their lives in times of war...They may die trying to protect friend, or trying to give strength to others. But in the end, they died. And there are others who lose hope, and grieve...A future where happiness blooms like a wild rose...That's what I'm fighting for!)
01-08-2010, 06:08 PM
Emperor: FOOL! *smacks with pimp stick*
Tida: What is this UNGAAH business about anyways?
Kuja: Come dance with me!
01-09-2010, 07:26 AM
Chaos: I find comfort in your bestial instincts.
I enjoy innuendos.
Jecht: (When fighting against females) I'll give it to ya!

One of THE best quotes in Final Fantasy VII. I love you Cid Highwind <3
Guardians of the Planet
Tifa: Don't worry! Think!
Cid: Hey! The girl's right. You start worryin' and there's no stoppin' it!
Things just start fallin' apart and get worse and worse.
Barret: You're pretty damn optimistic! You up to somethin'!?
Cid: Yeah, I been thinkin' about this and that. All the time we been up here
lookin' at the planet. I been thinkin' even when were floatin' in the ocean in
that escape pod.
Cloud: I've... been thinking too. About the universe... planet... ocean. How
wide and big... No matter where I go and what I do it won't change a thing.
Cid: Maybe you're right. But I came up with something different. I always
thought this planet was so huge. But lookin' at it from space, I realized it's
so small. We're just floatin' in the dark. ......kind of makes you feel
powerless. On top of that it's got Sephiroth festerin' inside it like a
sickness. That's why I say this planet's still a kid. A little kid sick and
trembling in the middle of this huge universe. Someone's gotta protect it. Ya
follow me? That someone is us.
Tifa: Cid... that's beautiful.
