And where would [[TheLordOfTheRings Sauron]] have been without his Orcs. The power of most Masterminds lies with their minions--the faceless hordes who exist to do (literally) only the Mastermind's bidding and work their evil upon the game world."''

->''"Here's a brief list of things these guards, soldiers and career mercenaries have never been trained ''not'' to do: 1) [[EnemyChatter Stand around facing each other and jammer on]] about [[CardCarryingVillain how much they hate democracy and apple pie and the smiles on little babies' faces]] instead of guarding the fucking room. 2) Shout insults at the professional killer the they can't see but know for a fact is ''in'' the room, currently training his sights at their big flapping pottymouths. 3) After catching a glimpse of said professional killer, unload every clip of ammo [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy at the place where he used to be]] with their backs to about 12 different entry points. 4) And repeatedly checking for the professional killer in the same square yard of floorspace, loudly announcing their results with every step."''

->''"''FinalFantasyII'' had [[{{Hellgate}} the unstoppable hellspawned footsoldiers]] of the Paramekian Empire. ''FinalFantasyVI'' had the [[{{Magitek}} MagiTek]]-powered armies of Emperor Gestahl. ''FinalFantasyVII'' had Shinra's [[BadassBureaucrat security forces]]. Each incarnation of the ''Final Fantasy'' evil imperial army has become less and less frightening until we at last hit the bottom with [[FinalFantasyVIII the Galbadian Army]]. It's baffling that Galbadia ever became an imperial power with an army of useless wimps like these guys. If you ever get a GameOver screen as a result of a run-in with these guys, you'd probably be better off playing ''[[FinalFantasyMysticQuest Mystic Quest]]'' They're more like dominoes than soldiers."''

May he rest in peace...at least until the next action scene.''
