* CrazyPrepared[=/=]DangerouslyGenreSavvy: His original post game plot was to convince the heroes they should destroy themselves. When that didn't work, he convinces Palkia that he should destroy them. When that failed, he already had a backup plan to lure them to their deaths at his hands. When they show up, he tries to convince the player to join him by trapping them in a nightmare where their partner betrayed them and joined Darkai. When that failed, he summoned his army of {{Mooks}} to help him kill the group. Then when he lost, he had an escape route ready and would've escaped had Palkia not intervened. Yeah, he had a total of ''five'' backup plans!
