Quest #158 - Notable Quoteable DQVII 3DSable

Recommended Posts

We've had this quest more than a couple times, but with hundreds of thousands of newly translated words coming out, it's time to hear all those wonderful punny new jokes!


 


Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to identify some of the most interesting or funny quotes that come across while playing the newly translated Dragon Quest VII 3DS game. Truly, the series has a veritable gold mine of classic lines and witticisms, and I'm sure this game will keep it up.

 

Each quote that is submitted must provide a bit more info than just the words that are spoken. We also need context. As such, submitted quotes should include:

 

1) The quote itself (obviously)

2) Who said it

3) To whom it was said (if applicable)

4) Under what circumstances did the quote take place

For example, for the above pictured quote, you could submit something like the following:

 

"Oh, well. God chose you, not some old pervert!"

- Spoken by an old pervert to the hero in a cave behind Estard Castle.

 

 

And what would any quest be without some good old fashioned ground rules? So here they are!

 

Rules:

1) You may submit up to 5 quotes that will get voted on each (you know, like one every 20 hours of gameplay).  Please feel free to submit as many as you want extra so that Woodus has a great deal of them for our Quote of the Day here.  Only your Top 5 - and you can change these until the quest ends, count.

2) You can only submit quotes from the English version DQVII 3DS

3) In the event that two or more people submit the same quote, the first person to submit it will get to claim it for their top 5.

4) Submit your quotes right here.  Please put all of yours in the same post.  I'm not going to track them down.

5) You have until November 30th, 2016 to contribute your submissions (seems like a long time, but this is a loooooong game).

 

Once all of the submissions have been gathered, the community will vote on which ones are the best. The three people who submit the top three quotes will receive a badge. Furthermore, all submitted quotes will be used by Woodus to update the "Quote of the Day" feature here at the Den.

 

That's it! Start your engines and get those hilarious or interesting quotes sent in!

17:49 9/24:

(Just for clarification, the first five are the ones I'm submitting to the vote; the sixth I just thought was funny :P)

 

---

 

"What are 'sins', [Hero]? They sound like fun!"

 

-Ruff in the present-day Frobisher church after the party overhears a girl trying to confess her sins to the priest

 

---

 

"[Hero] looks at the bookshelves. There's a book entitled 'Empire-Building for Fun and Profit'. [Hero] takes a closer look... 

...The contents suggest that the cover might have been exchanged with one from another book. [Hero] pops it quickly back on the shelf with a blush."

 

-A bookshelf in the Pilgrim's Perdition 

 

---

 

"Ah! Our heroes! My mamma is always saying that heroes are being real tough and real cool. But you are... Well, you are not so... Uh, nothing! Nothing at all! Never mind! Hee hee!"

 

-A little girl in Gröndal after the party defeats the monster in the town

 

---

 

"Hah... Hah... You helped me out of a tight spot there! I guess relieving myself in its general direction just wasn't going to do the trick this time..."

 

-A man in Nottagen after saving him from a monster, in reference to an earlier quote

 

---

 

"This night, I too will be belabouring the beast. Of course, younger men will lead from ahead. I will bravely stand at the rear and...throw rocks, or perform some such similar service to our cause."

 

-An old man in Vogograd after the villagers create a plan of attack against the monster

 

---

 

"Ooo, I'll fight, and be the winner! And then have a slap up dinner!"

Is there a link to an archive of past quotes? There might end up being some overlap with quotes from the PS1 game. That being said, I'll start with my first submission:

 

1. "Mixed bathing? That's fine by me!" - Prince Kiefer, inside the underground Emberdale spa.

90% of Maribel's party chat dialogue. It's starting to get tiring.

So most of Maribels dialogue is her being a $#!&@, most of Kiefers is him being pervert or complaining about his royal duties, and Ruff's is mostly him talking about food, am I reading a shonen manga or something?

Maribel is the worst because her insults are most of the time unnecessary and uncalled for and are almost all framed the same way. "[Negative thing relating to what they're doing]. I bet you love this, Hero!" "This person is [Negative traits]. Reminds me a lot of you!" "[something sexual]. Try to control yourself, Hero!" They're all framed like that most of the time. When I saw Platty's quote, it reminded me a lot something she said when I was playing earlier today....and another thing she said when I was playing earlier today....and something she said when I played two nights ago. I'm only 8 hours in and there's another 90 more to go. I don't want to put up with her smart mouth for such a long game. And she's saying them all to a person who cannot speak and prove her right, so it comes off as her just shooting off baseless insults to be mean. We know nothing of their relationship prior to their journey (up to where I am at least), so that just makes me wonder why he tolerates her at all if their relationship with each other is just her being mean to him unprovoked.

Let me attempt to answer this, hmm, your not friends with someone until you insult them in a daily basis.. Anyway I actually don't mind Maribels chat, I find it entertaining. She grew in the same town as the Hero for (I'm assuming her whole life) I guess he tolerates her, because they just know each other that well.

I make fun of my friends all the time, and they're not nearly as cruel or unwarranted as the things she feels she needs to say, and I don't make it a part of general conversation the way she does. It's almost like a verbal tic with her. She can't not insult someone whenever she opens her mouth, and when it's something more genuine, it's almost like she's fighting back her basic desire to say something rude instead.

You clearly have never been around my friends, Seriously though. I never get the impression that Maribel is really a jerk, Every time I read her party dialogue it's like she's trying to hard to sound mean, like she's putting up this whole tough girl act, maybe it's because the localization team was trying too hard to make her sound mean, unlike other people I've met who actually sound like they really hate me. Maribel however I think it's just a mask she hides behind, and the hero knows this, he knows that "somewhere" inside of her is decent person. That's what I make of it anyway, you drink your cup of bleach and I'll drink mine.

I'll have the Rangiku Matsumoto blend of Bleach then. It has a fuller body and fills me with bounce.

I prefer the Rukkia Kuchki kind myself, it's cold and lifeless just like my emotions.

Is this is a guessing game? At least give me a hint. Is it some kind of innuendo?

An innuendo of the sexual kind. Good name for a porno based on Close Encounters of the Third Kind, btw.
