But White Mage... I thought killing was wrong?

(I thought 4 white mages would actually be pretty easy. You get the extremely useful exit spell(after all, in the old FF games, random encounters were a true threat, unlike in the new games) & around mid-game, you start relying primarly on the magic weapons like Thor's hammer instead of actual attacks.)</babbling>

Hmm, I still can't find it. Maybe it wasn't actually in the Nintendo Power strategy guide, maybe it was in the instruction manual or something?

I tried Google and other people seem to remember it as well I found no useful additional information.

I downloaded a copy of the instruction manual and it didn't seem to be in there, either. All I found was this early example of Fighter being Fighter:

What will happen when Onion Kid grows up into Sarda again?

Brian can not possibly end the story here.

And SSSS, would you mind if I used that pic for my sig? It made me lol.

I don't get it.

The very moment I laid my eyes upon the panel with Black Mage holding the Player's Guide, my eyes immediately widened in shock. Instantly, my mind shat bricks, and I was left starring dumbfounded at the screen, mouth gaped open in a shocked smile for half a minute.

I can't fucking believe this. Absolutely INCREDIBLE.

You want to use materials copyrighted by Square for the purpose of entertainment? Outrageous.

For reference, here is a download of the FF1 instruction manual and here is the Nintendo Power FF1 strategy guide referenced in the comic.

He'll go back in time, be too late to create the universe in his own image, wiat a few billion years, dick around the Light Warriors while they get the orbs for him, abosrob their power, absorb Black Mage's evil, and become Chaos. Stable Time Loops 101.

That...dear god, that was freaking epic. This is probably one of my favorite comics (Hell, probably THE favorite) in the entire thing so far. Referring all the way back to the "Four White Mages" joke from the beginning definitely makes this the longest setup that I've seen in any webcomic.

I really don't have much else to say besides this: Awesome job.

Will you guys stop talking about this being the end!!! He might actually stop if you keep this up!!

So freakin' knock it off and talk about the comic instead of the lifespan of the series!!

This is making me sad, stop talking about this like it's the end!!
Dang dude I don't know what to tell you but they just killed Chaos.
You know. Chaos. Final boss. He's dead, the credits roll, and you turn off the gaming system. Also the TV.
Sorry, man, but if it ain't the end then it's pretty damn close.

Something we have not thought of:

Could this be another one of Brian's fake endings?
