Hiro (text): <<T-Time...?>>
Tsukushi: It was some decades ago that Grandma and Specter last saw each other.

Tsukushi: The signal from Specter is getting stronger and stronger.
Tohko: It seems like...we've finally made it.
Tohko: Hey, what's that?! It looks like some sort of shield!
Tsukushi: It seems like it's coming from the spacesuit. It's completely guarding him. That's a problem. We'll need to destroy the shield before we can catch him!
On-Screen Text: Capture Specter!
Specter (combat):
• You think you can keep up? (Entering the arena with more than half health)
• Wanna do this? (Entering the arena with more than half health)
• Is that all you got? (Entering the arena at about half health)
• Curses! (Entering the arena at less than half health)
• *pant* *pant* (Entering the arena at less than 1/3 health)
• Uhh... (Entering the arena at less than 1/8 health)
• Uh, seems like your eyes aren't so good. Ha ha. (If the player shoots the wrong Specter.)
• I'm right here. (sighs) (If the player shoots the wrong Specter.)
• Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! (If the player shoots the wrong Specter.)
• Ngh! (Taking damage)
• Aha! (Taking damage)
• Ow! (Taking damage)

Tsukushi: Now! Catch him with the Monkey Net!
Specter: (groans, mumbling)

Tsukushi: Oh no! The space stations is going down, and it can't transport you!
Hiro (text): <<What?! What's going to happen to me?!>>
Tohko: Don't worry about it! Grandma said she would take care of it this time!
Hiro (text): <<Are you sure it's going to be okay?!>>
Specter: (exhales wearily)
Haru: Specter, you feel better now?
Specter: It wasn't about feeling better.
Haru: I know you were uneasy about coming home, weren't you? Back then, mankind was sending up so many rockets to go to the moon. At times, they were empty. But at other times like when you went up, there was a monkey on board. And most of them would never return. They'd simply be lost in space. It was just terrible. And so I thought I would do something to save you. But it would seem that those monkeys somehow beat me to it.
Specter: They aren't bad monkeys. Although they are pretty strange.
Haru: You're telling me.
Specter: And they have taken pretty good care of me.
Haru: Yeah, yeah. So I guess I'm going to have to thank them, aren't I?
Specter: Heh heh! ...(shivers)
Haru: Still hate the cold, I see.
Specter: And you have really aged, Haru!
Haru: Ha ha ha ha ha! Well, how about we go home? You can take a nice warm bath.
Specter: A bath? That sounds nice!

(Cutscene)
Pipo Monkey 1 (text): Ah, that's love.
Pipo Monkey 1 (text): Must be nice to have someone looking for you and a home to come back to.
Pipo Monkey 2 (text): That's passion. Something we don't have anymore.
Pipo Monkey 2 (text): We'd have to go back to our ancestors' times to feel that kind of passion.
Pipo Monkey 1 (text): Then again, they were kind of lame.
Pipo Monkey 2 (text): There's no doubt we're way cooler than they were.
Pipo Monkey 1 (text): Ah, this is so boring.
Pipo Monkey 2 (text): Totally boring.
Pipo Monkey 1 (text): Yeah, it's just so boring without Specter.
Pipo Monkey 2 (text): I don't think he'll come with us anymore.
Pipo Monkey 1 (text): Then let's kidnap him!
Pipo Monkey 2 (text): Hey now! That's showing some passion!
Pipo Monkey 1 (text): Right?
Tohko: Hey come on, let's go! Those monkeys are back again!
Tsukushi: Apparently, they liked Specter and earth so much, that they came back and kidnapped him. So could you please capture the monkeys again and try to get Specter back?

General[]

On-Screen Text:
• Swing! (First time taking damage and Monkey Net is temporarily replaced with a Pipo head on a spring.)

Tohko:
• Gotcha! (Capturing a monkey with no voice assigned.)
• Nice! Found the monkey! (After shooting a rainbow monkey icon.)

Trivia[]

  • The voice actors are not listed in the credits of this version.[1]
  • In the final cutscene, two lines of subtitles are erroneously mixed for a split second. The lines are supposed to be "We'd have to go back to our ancestors' times to feel that kind of passion", and "There's no doubt we're way cooler than they were". The new line reads "There's no doubt we're way cooler than times to feel that kind of passion." It only appears for a single frame.[2]
