The official rendering for Dawn of Souls. Red Mage is holding onto his/her hat, Fighter has a sword out, and... White Mage is using Black Mage as a human shield.
And of course, there's that ever so infamous supposedly Badass Boast that got translated as "I Garland will knock you all down!" The Narm Charm alone has kept this line translated thus even in the various remakes and remasters with improved scripts.
In the NES original, the revelation that the Lone King is actually Astos in disguise is, for some reason, punctuated with the same joyous fanfare you hear whenever you get or experience something really good. Evidently, the game thinks it's just awesome that you're about to lose several party members to Astos and that damned RUB spell of his.
