Dialogue[edit]

The following dialogue is spoken by Marik. The game's code also contains text intended for when the player defeats Marik a fifth time. However it was not used in the final version of the game.

Situation Dialogue
After the player defeats Seeker I... I AM MARIK... THE CHOSEN ONE... SELECTED BY THE MILLENNIUM ITEM. I SPEAK THROUGH THIS LOSER'S LIPS. I'M SOME DISTANCE FROM THERE. BUT... I'LL BE THERE SOON TO DEMONSTRATE... THE TRUE STRENGTH OF THE GHOULS!
After the player defeats Pandora I... HATE EXCUSES! YOU KNOW THE RULE! YOU LOSE, YOU PAY! THERE'S NO EXCUSE! PARDON ME... WE MEET AGAIN. I'M SORRY IT HAS TO BE THIS WAY... BUT I'LL BE THERE SOMETIME SOON. I CAN'T WAIT 'TIL I FACE YOU...
Password Input You have no hope of defeating me... Not as long as I have my Ra card... You can't hope to win!
Challenged (First Time) We finally meet face to face... It almost seems like we've met... Well, we actually have. I'm Marik. I can enter minds. Control them... I possess the Millennium Rod.
Challenged (Subsequent) Perhaps we were destined to meet. If so, let the battle begin!
Defeats the player I hold a card of True Light... It gives me power over others... And that is why... I NEVER LOSE!
Loses to the player I... the Holder of the True Light... I've lost to a... a human?
Loses to the player (Fifth Time) (unused) It can't be! Not 5 times! As long as there be darkness... I should remain invincible!
