I guess guns do beat swords

Time to see how effective her healing is.

It's because he put on the generic guard uniform; it doesn't have his 'Boots with straps, real leather' that give +15 agility.

He could have dodged that, otherwise.

And I haven't even mentioned all his belts (genuine dragonfrog leather) that he removed. They gave a +1 damage resist each! What a noob. That's why I hate infiltration quests.

"Shot through the heart and you're to blame, you give love a bad name."

Well lucky for him he fell into the arms of the healer.
Let's see what skillzzz she got!!!

Ehehehe, apt analysis!!!

Anyway, no worries. Just use a healthkit! Oh wait, at this level it's probably called "Tasty treat" or "Candy" or something similar.

Come one, it's Not-Cloud, I'm sure even impaled on a sword he'd probably be able to throw Not-Sephiroth off the building.

The Philistine:
Time to see how effective her healing is.

"Oh, I'm not a doctor, I'm a medic."

"Wait, there's a difference?"

"A doctor is someone that fixes you. A medic just makes you comfortable while you die."

"Note to self, never get shot."

They gave it a materia slot.

I was thinking he'd have a place to put one of them giant brass nose rings into this particular sword.

Alright white mage, time to earn your keep!

Time for an overly dramatic death scene... again. Getting stabbed straight through didn't kill Gunny, why would getting shot straight through kill Not-Cloud?

I call hax! No way is a gun supposed to be that effective.

Quick, use a turkey feather!

It's probably one of those bullshit Final Fantasy X attacks that instakills you. Several enemies in the game have one and they are quite ragequit inducing.

I haven't played FFX in nearly 15 years, so... I don't remember that.

Close enough, +1 RvB at least.

Well, Gunny did have the advantage of being someone with enough character and personality to be worth keeping around. I'm not certain the the great overlord Grey Carter sees fit to spare this one.

If it's anything like Star Ocean 3 - and the hair and sword versus laser indicate it is - he'll be fine.

I'm going through it again to try to beat the point I last ragequit at, the bossfight on Mount Gagazet. First it uses a movie that gives your whole party the zombie status ailment then it mass heals you, given that to the undead healing magic is murder you know how that works out. I never figured out the whole customizing items thing so that'll hopefully solve my problem this playthrough.

He'll be fine, just give him a phoenix down.

If we go with that, the medic is the one we'll keep around, not the guy that knows exactly one word.

That or they could go with that Imogen Heap song and some slo-mo.

"Mmm watcha saaaayyyy mmmmm that you only meant wellllll"

Right. Besides, Gunny's already got the muscle covered in Erin's growing party.

That's what happens when you don't level grind and do sidequests, actually. This was obviously final dungeon, Erin was supposed to get new levels, equipment, OP skills and more superleveled characters in the party before even trying it.

The Wooster:

Critical hit.

Or cinematic that breaks the in-game rules. The lack of damage numbers makes me think the later.

Maybe now Not-Cloud will go all chatterbox on us, in some long-winded dying speech.

Don't mean to be thick, but...

...is it role reversal because she held the door for him?

scorchs341:

Guess they just needed a gun the size of his sword. <.<

the December King:

Hehehe. That's one way to look at it. xD
I think it's a FF7 reference though.

OT: So, if he's going to die, will his last words be, "Whatever..."? ;p

'Cause it feels like there's a hole inside my body, Like there's a hole inside my heart.

Other than that, dammit Krillin! Where's that Senzu Bean?

Not-Cloud stayed behind in order to fight of the guards, allowing our heroes to escape unharmed and confront the big bad.

But our heroes didn't do that, stayed right where they were, and ended up pulling him into the elevator regardless.

So Not-Cloud is going to die for literal nothing.

Most JRPG deaths are cinematics. If rules applied to aerith's death you would just use a phoenix down.

If rules applied to Emmyrins deaht you would just relaod an earlier save and send in heavy cavalry first instead of pegasus knights

The later is not the same. Unless it's Undertale, saving and loading isn't considered part of the in-game world. Phoenix downs are.
