    Ragna the Bloodedge 

Yu

Pre-match:

Yu: (summons his Persona) Izanagi!

Ragna: Do whatever you want. Just don't fall behind.
Yu: Then we're a team! Now...
Both: Let's go!!

Post-match:

Ragna: Not bad. You got some moves.
Yu: Right back at ya.

Results:

Ragna: Look, I don't give a damn about the "strength of your bonds," but if you keep your eyes forward, I'll watch your back.
Yu: Our worlds may be different, but our bonds are shared... If you fight by my side, Ragna-san, I'll cut us a path!

Hyde

Pre-match:

Ragna: Cut straight through and take 'em down. You got a problem with that?
Hyde: Not at all. That's what I always do.

Post-match:

Hyde: Sorry, but I don't have any more time to waste on you.
Ragna: Heh. Kid's got some stones.

Results:

Ragna: Go home, kid. From here on out, your life's on the line.

Blake

Pre-match:

Ragna: Sorry, but I'm gonna do what I want.

Post-match:

Ragna: Tch. Nothing but small fry.
Blake: Says you. You don't know what I had to go through.

Results:

Blake: Geez... You're charging in head-first without even thinking. You could at least pay a LITTLE attention to your partner.

Astral Heat

Ragna: I'll show you the power of the Azure! I'll show you fear! There is no Hell, only the void!

Ragna

Pre-match:

Jin: Brother... LET'S KILL EACH OTHER!
Ragna: Stop crying, you little punk. I'll deal with you later.

Post-match:

Jin: With those obstacles out of the way, let's go back to killing each other!
Ragna: *runs offscreen*
Jin: Brother... Brother? *runs off in Ragna's direction*

Results:

Jin: Wait, Brother! I said WAIT! We should be killing each other right now!
Ragna: Damn, you're annoying. Fine, get over here and I'll put you to sleep.

Noel

Pre-match:

Jin: I expect nothing from the likes of you. Just stay out of my way, you obstacle.
Noel: Y—yes, sir.

Post-match:

Noel: W— We did it, Major Kisaragi!
Jin: Obviously... and stop making such a fuss every single time. It's embarrassing.
Noel: Y—yes, sir.

Results:

Jin: Hmph... Why the hell am I stuck on babysitting duty...
Noel: Oh no... The Major keeps getting grumpier and grumpier...

Orie

Pre-match:

Jin: Let the hammer of justice fall...
Orie: ...On all who would disrupt order.

Post-match:

Orie: I will not take your life. Leave this place at once.
Jin: Well said. You're not even worth killing.

Results:

Orie: To bring judgement upon all evil... Is that really the "Law" and "Order" you uphold?
Jin: So what if it is...? Shall I judge the evil within you?

Blake

Pre-match:

Jin: Stay in the shadows like a beast you are.
Blake: I don't take orders from you. I'll do what I want.

Post-match:

Blake: This is the part where you’re supposed to thank me.

Results:

Jin: Stay out of my range while I’m fighting, or I might cut you, too.
Blake: Don’t worry about me… I’m used to fighting with people who use Iaido.

    Rachel Alucard 

Ragna

Pre-match:

Rachel: It's time for your debut, Ragna. Go work up a sweat for the both of us.
Ragna: Pipe down and get off your high horse, already.

Ragna: Yeah, no. Go drink some river water.

Es

Pre-match:

Rachel: Now, child: shall we dance?
Es: Dancing... during combat? Incomprehensible...

Post-match:

Rachel: How mundane... do you agree?
Es: Mundane...? I'm... not sure.

Results:

Es: Your movement in combat is plagued by illogical factors. I suggest optimizing your algorithm.
Rachel: Illogical? You hardly understand what you're talking about. I think I may need to teach you how a real lady behaves.

Yukiko

Pre-match:

Rachel: It seems that we are unwanted guests tonight.
Yukiko: Nothing a little charring can fix, right?

Post-match:

Rachel: A little charring was a gross understatement. How I pity them.
Yukiko: I thought I was holding back...

Results:

Yukiko: Now that that's over, why don't we have some tea? It would pair wonderfully with this manju.
Rachel: What a delightful suggestion. Nago, prepare the tea posthaste. Hehe... this should be a lovely tea party.

    Hazama 

Carmine

Pre-match:

Hazama: We've been caught. Not a good look for the intelligence department.
Carmine: What do I care? They're just two more chunks of meat!

Post-match:

Carmine: Like I said, two meat chunks coming right up!
Hazama: Good job! A violent opponent should be dealt with by a violent ally.

Results:

Hazama: I've been wondering about your hair for a while now... It's so needlessly festive! Half the time it's red, and the other half, white!
Carmine: Keep pissing me off and I'll dye you ALL red.

Blake

Pre-match:

Hazama: Let's see... which of us should go first...?
Blake: I'm not turning my back to you.

Post-match:

Hazama: Oh! Are you getting dizzy?
Blake: You rely too much on your sight. Use all five senses.

Results:

Hazama: Running, ducking, and dodging your way through battle… The shadows really do suit you, young lady.
Blake: I’m honored. But I’d watch my back, if I were you.

Noel: Wha— what do we do, Ragna? We haven't devised a strategy or anything...

Noel: Nice work, Ragna! Um, I made you a drink if you're thirst—
Ragna: N-NO THANKS!

Hyde

Pre-match:

Noel: Please surrender, there's no need for us to fight.
Hyde: Yeah, I don't think that's gonna work. Sorry...

Post-match:

Noel: I'm sorry. I should have held back.
Hyde: Why apologize? They had it coming!

Results:

Noel: What sort of world is this...? How long must we keep fighting...?
Hyde: It doesn't matter. We just have to take this as far as we can.

Ragna

Pre-match:

Azrael: Hors d'oeuvres first, then the main dish. Right, Grim Reaper?

Post-match:

Azrael: Pathetic. I'm not even full.
Ragna: Tch... you're really on the warpath.

Results:

Azrael: Now, it's time for the main course. You better leave me satisfied, Grim Reaper...!
Ragna: Bring it. You just bit off more than you can chew!

Hazama

Pre-match:

Azrael: Just don't get in the way of my meal, Library.
Hazama: Oh, please. I have no interest in your beastly affairs.

Post-match:

Azrael: Ehh... no texture whatsoever.
Hazama: Oh my, what a mess. Do you have no manners?

Results:

Azrael: Eating a bunch of small fry ain't gonna fill me up. Guess I gotta go after a bigger fish.
Hazama: Whoa now, you'll spoil your appetite!

Chie

Pre-match:

Azrael: Show me the power of a real carnivore!
Chie: [beat] Carnivore's kind of a loaded term! It's not like that!

Post-match:

Azrael: Tch, pathetic. I don't even want to eat you.
Chie: Well, so I guess you won't eat everything.

Results:

Azrael: I see, your Meat-Lover nickname wasn't just for show. After the way you tenderized this meat, the texture will be perfect!
Chie: Have you even heard a word I've said? And why does it sound so gross when you talk about me tenderizing meat? Ew! Just stay away from me, you pervert!

Astral Heat

Azrael: Releasing...all...restraints! Watch and learn! This is POWER!! NONE CAN MATCH MY STRENGTH!!!

Makoto: Whoa... that was a close one. Wasn't it, Mr. Tager?
Tager: Which is why I said we needed to st—- *sigh* uugh... never mind. Well done.

Results:

Tager: Your sharp instincts are praiseworthy, but if you continue to fight like that, all the intel those instincts provide you will be squandered. On the battlefield, the most important thing is to—
Makoto: (Oh boy... Heeeere we go...)

Waldstein

Pre-match:

Tager: Unknown enemy approaching. How do we want to handle this?
Waldstein: The only way I know how: with power!!!

Post-match:

Waldstein: Weak! Too weak!
Tager: We’ve neutralized our opponents, but at the expense of our surroundings, I’m afraid.

Results:

Tager: I fully understand the capacity of your strength, but you should consider brushing up on your tactics a little more. Not all battles can be won with brute force alone.
Waldstein: Don’t make me laugh. Little tricks and gambits are meaningless in the face of raw power. My claws will make short work of them.

Makoto: 'Kay! Let's get this thing started! *tosses her coat aside*
Gordeau: I like your spirit! This'll be a good fight!

Post-match:

Makoto: Yay! We steamrolled 'em!
Gordeau: Going crazy on your enemies without a thought... I can dig it.

Results:

Makoto: That was awesome! I'd call us unbeatable, but that'd be an understatement!
Gordeau: Unbeatable, huh? ...And here I thought you'd already have gotten sick of me. Guess I've got a chance to turn my life around a little.

Astral Heat:

Makoto: Gather, cosmic power! Crusher! Haaaaaaa~! You're already dead! Burn out in a blaze of glory!!

Pre-match:

Nu: Ragna... Ragna... Nu's right here.

Post-match:

Nu: No. This... this is not Ragna...
Hazama: That's right. That thing over there is nothing but garbage.

Results:

Nu: Ragnaaaaa... Where are you, Ragna? Nu wants Ragna...
Hazama: Oh, just can it already, would you? I'd rather not have to scrap such a big piece of garbage.

Yu: To protect my friends and the ones I hold dear.

Linne: No need for that. Let's just get this over with.

Post-match:

Es: Threat level updated. Target incapacitated
Linne: Well, hopefully they learned a thing or two.

Results:

Ruby: [beat] Well, actually... uhhh... I'm more interested in your sword.

Post-match:

Ruby: Oh please, can I see your sword just for a little bit?

Results:

Ruby: Crescent Rose and I are one and the same! A weapon is a part of you! You can't live without it! Is that how you feel about your sword?
Es: A part of me... Something I can't live without... But that would be... pudding?

Ragna

Pre-match:

Hakumen: Your destruction at my hand is merely a matter on time.
Ragna: That's my line. You'd better not stab me in the back.

Post-match:

Hakumen: I cannot ignore the evil that courses through your veins.
Ragna: Give it a rest. The crazy act is getting boring.

Results:

Hakumen: You are the very essence of evil, the heart of darkness. Your continued existence is a blight upon this world.
Ragna: Your speeches are getting old. If you want to play the hero, then shut up and fight!

Post-match:

Yu: It's over.
Hakumen: Such is the difference in our resolve.

Naoto Shirogane

Pre-match:

Naoto: I'll put my life on the line to reveal the truth.

Post-match:

Izayoi: This battle would not have been won without your strength.

Izayoi: Punishment for the unjust.

Post-match:

Yosuke: Yes! I was pretty cool there, right?
Makoto: Heck, yeah! You showed them what's what!

Chie: Ha ha, don't get so cocky! Hey, Hanamura, once we get home, buy me a beef skewer. Actually, two. No, three!

Linne

Pre-match:

Yosuke: Haha! You're fast but I'm pretty quick myself!
Linne: Are you trying to show off? Ah... to be young again.

Post-match:

Yosuke: Ha! Against our speed...
Linne: All of their powers are meaningless.
Yosuke: Hey, you're actually into it!
Linne: Sh—Shut up.

Results:

Linne: It's impossible for anyone to see through my EXS "Speed Star". By the time you realize you've been attacked, it's already too late.
Yosuke: What the hell? I want a cool two-part attack name like that! ...Actually, I might be a little too old for that by now...

Kanji

Pre-match:

Yosuke: Alright. Don't get too fired up, okay? Now stay cool. Cool?
Kanji: How could I call myself a real man if it didn't get me fired up. Bring it on!

Post-match:

Kanji: Damn, you really got some guts.
Yosuke: But I guess we're just a little bit stronger.

Results:

Kanji: Hey, Hanamura-senpai, you're hurt. Here, I'll lend you my shoulder. Just relax and lean on me.
Yosuke: Whoa, nope, I'm A-okay. Seriously, I'm good. I appreciate the gesture, but I can walk on my— ow!

    Chie Satonaka 

Waldstein

Pre-match:

Waldstein: Fellow warrior, let us march forward to our bloody ends!
Chie: Uhhh... you wanna turn that down a notch?! Like, to a "We're the strongest, yeah!" kind of level?

Post-match:

Chie: Wahahaha! "We reign victorious!" ...right?
Waldstein: Hahahaha! Delightful! A delightful fight, indeed!

Results:

Chie: So, what do you think, Gramps? It's kinda fun to play nice once in a while, right?
Waldstein: I don't mind sparring from time to time. But who are you calling "Gramps"? ...It isn't me, is it?

Yang

Pre-match:

Chie: Your punches are strong, Yang! But I think my kicks might be stronger!
Yang: Oh? Then let's see which of us can dish out more damage.

Post-match:

Yang: Way to go, Chie!
Chie: Ha! You too!

Results:

Chie: Aaaah! Now that was some good refreshing exercise. ...Hm? Why do I feel like I'm forgetting something? Oh, right, I was competing with Yang-chan!
Yang: Well, that was short-lived. I'm still in the mood to fight, though. There's gotta be another opponent or two around here somewhere.

    Yukiko Amagi 

Yu

Pre-match:

Yu: You got my back, Amagi?
Yukiko: Yes, leave it to me! I'll support you as much as I can.

Post-match:

Yukiko: I wouldn't call that rare... medium, maybe... umm, well-done?
Yu: ...Amagi, they're charred.

Results:

Yukiko: Did I manage to show you how reliable I can be? I want to help you out more, Narukami-kun.
Yu: You were perfect. When I fight with you, I don't hesitate at all. If you weren't here, it wouldn't have gone so well.

Chie

Pre-match:

Yukiko: Chie! Let's do our best!
Chie: Of course! Let's go, Yukiko!

Post-match:

Chie: No matter the enemy... I will always protect Yukiko!
Yukiko: Oh, Chie. You're so cool!

Results:

Yukiko: I can't just let you protect me forever. From now on, I'll protect you too, Chie.
Chie: Yeah! If you protect me, I'll protect you. As long as we both protect what's imporant to us, everything will be fine!

Weiss

Pre-match:

Yukiko: I shall show you my greatest fire dance.
Weiss: How lovely... I'm a confident dancer myself. Allow me to join you.

Post-match:

Yukiko: Oh, done already?
Weiss: I feel so let down.

Results:

Weiss: How did you like our dance? Did you enjoy the storm of fire and ice?
Yukiko: If the dance was to your liking, come to the Amagi Inn's hot springs to refresh your body and soul. We eagerly await your visit.

    Kanji Tatsumi 

Yu

Pre-match:

Kanji: Okay. Just watch, Senpai. Kanji Tatsumi’s about to fight like a man!
Yu: Good. I’ll try to keep up.

Post-match:

Kanji: Hey, Senpai! I really think battle is—
Yu: Heh. "The heart of manliness," right?
Kanji: Yeah, yeah! Nice, Senpai!

Results:

Yu: You’ve gotten strong, Kanji.
Kanji: Hell yeah! It’s a real honor to hear that from you, Senpai. I’m gonna keep trying to do better and better.

Yukiko

Pre-match:

Kanji: Stay back, Senpai. I can handle these losers.
Yukiko: Thank you, but no. I’m fighting too. I don’t need to be protected anymore.

Post-match:

Yukiko: S-sorry. I lost my temper and sort of... scorched them.
Kanji: Amagi-sempai... you're pretty scary...

Results:

Kanji: Senpai, I’m sorry. I underestimated you, and belittled your resolve… If you want to slap me now, I won’t complain!
Yukiko: Oh, I hardly noticed… But if that’s what you want, Kanji-kun… Is a punch okay? ...It will only take one.

Carmine

Pre-match:

Kanji: Hey, punk! Once we're done here, I'll take YOU on!
Carmine: Fine! Let's get this trash out of the way!

Post-match:

Kanji: A hundred years too soon. Try harder!
Carmine: We'd never lose to garbage like you!

Results:

Kanji: Heh, you wanna go? Then let's go! I can take everything you've got to give!
Carmine: Th-The hell...? I don't like the sound of that... Look, I'm not interested in... whatever the hell this is. Go do that shit on your own time.

    Aegis 

Tager

Pre-match:

Aegis: Let's go, Tager! Maximum power!
Tager: Quick and decisive! I like it.

Post-match:

Tager: Mission complete. Proceeding to the next waypoint.
Aegis: Roger that. Away we go.
(both fly off)

Results:

Aegis: High speed navigational sequence active. Closing in on waypoint. It seems the two of us are perfectly synchronized.
Tager: But that's no excuse to let out guard down. The first to lose focus in combat is usually the first to lose their life. You would do well to remember that.

Yu

Pre-match:

Yu: Our opponents look tough. Think we've got this, Aegis?
Aegis: No problem. I will use my full power from the start of the match.

Post-match:

Yu: This is the power of our Personas... no, out hearts!

Results:

Yu: We've been through a lot of tough battles together. There's no way we'd lose a fight like that.
Aegis: Narukami-san. When I am with you, a feeling of nostalgia washes over me... It reminds me of someone.

    Naoto Shirogane 

Yu

Pre-match:

Naoto: Heh, it's odd. I didn't picture the two of us fighting together, Senpai.
Yu: I'm glad we are. Looking forward to your brilliant insights, Naoto!

Post-match:

Yu: Wow. They don't call you detective prince for nothing.
Naoto: Heh, I'm more than just my brain.

Results:

Yu: You never change, do you Naoto?
Naoto: Please don't worry. No matter the situation, I'll keep you safe, Senpai.

Hyde

Pre-match:

Hyde: So you think you can control my power?
Naoto: Not an issue. I have a plan.

Post-match:

Hyde: We won. What the hell are you?
Naoto: Nothing special. Just a detective.

Results:

Naoto: Your powers are more intense than I had predicted. If you take so much as one wrong step, we risk serious injury.
Hyde: Don't take this the wrong way, but you shouldn't come near me. I haven't been able to control my power since I got here... and I don't want to hurt you.

    Mitsuru Kirijo 

Orie

Pre-match:

Orie: Failure is not an option. Let's stay focused and deal with them.
Mitsuru: Very well. We'll keep them within our reach and suppress them. Just as we theorized.

Post-match:

Orie: The curtain falls. This match is settled.
Mitsuru: That's the end of that. Elegantly done.

Results:

Orie: I value the success of the Licht Kries over my own. Anyone working for an organization they value would do the same. So as long as our goals are aligned, I will continue to fight alongside you.
Mitsuru: No need to be so formal, the fight is over. Besides, it's important for a soldier to find rest wherever she can!

Weiss

Pre-match:

Weiss: The strong can go into battle with a sense of ease.
Mitsuru: That's true, but don't let your guard down!

Post-match:

Mitsuru: Execetution complete.
Weiss: Execution?! That's disturbing...

Results:

Mitsuru: Calm analysis and precision strikes. Just what you'd expect from the Ice Queen.
Weiss: You're not bad your self, Imperious Queen of Executions. I pity the opponent in the face of your mercilessness.

    Akihiko Sanada 

Mitsuru

Pre-match:

Akihiko: Mitsuru, you know what we have to do!
Mitsuru: Yeah. It's time we demonstrate our resolve!

Post-match:

Mitsuru: Your training seems to be paying of Akihiko!
Akihiko: I can't stay in one place forever, and neither can you Mitsuru!

Results:

Akihiko: Heh. Guess we're fighting together again!
Mitsuru: Whenever I am with you, I feel driven to reach greater heights. I guess the word "Rivals" suits us well.

Mika

Pre-match:

Mika: My burning heart sets my chest ablaze!
Akihiko: My muscles roar as they break their limits!
Both: Our fists shall collide! (they bump fists)
Akihiko: And there's the gong!

Post-match:

Akihiko: (grunts) Nice fight.
Mika: Right back at ya!

Results:

Mika: Total victory! ♪ C'mon, let's run towards the sunset!
Akihiko: Sure, I could use a jog! And once we're done, let's celebrate with some protein shakes.

    Labrys 

Yu

Pre-match:

Yu: Sorry Labrys, but I need your help.
Labrys: What are you actin' like a stranger for? We're friends, ain't we? I got your back anytime!

Post-match:

Labrys: Yes, we won!
Yu: Labrys, um... uh, y-your arm.
Labrys: Huh? Oh you're right. I forgot to pull back the chain.

Results:

Labrys: Even if my body is a machine, all of ya treat me like a normal person. That's what lets me trust everyone and fight.
Yu: We're tied with a bond. You are who you are, Labrys, and that's all that matters.

Ruby

Pre-match:

Labrys: I thought my weapon was huge, but yours give a run for its money, Ruby.
Ruby: Just wait till you see what I can do with it.

Post-match:

Labrys: No one will ever make me hurt my friends again.
Ruby: You're so cool Labrys.

Results:

Labrys: Now I get why you're the leader of Team RWBY. Ya got the skills for one thing, but you also seem to really enjoy fightin'. Can you teach me how to do that?
Ruby: When you're fighting, you don't have to worry about personal drama or anything, just the fight! Remember, simple is best! Ahh, that was fun.

Under Night In-Birth

    Hyde 

Tager

Pre-match:

Hyde: Are you ready for my real strength?
Tager: Calm down, rookie. First, we have to analyze the enemy's moves.

Post-match:

Hyde: Is that all ya got? That's disappointing.
Tager: Still so bare... but you got potential.

Results:

Hyde: Man, what the hell is with you? "Green" this, "rookie" that... Come at me and I'll show you how strong I am.
Tager: You just proved my point, Rookie. A soldier who ignores the battlefield to focus on himself is second-rate. Watch your opponents, the flow of battle, and above all, your allies. Only then can you call yourself "strong."

Yu

Pre-match:

Hyde: I don't pull my punches. No promises you won't get caught in the crossfire.
Yu: No problem. Don't hold back on my account. Persona! (summons Izanagi)

Post-match:

Hyde: So that's the power of the bond, huh?
Yu: Yeah! This is my... no, our power!

Results:

Yu: The "EXS", huh... I can't see any limits to its power... Just how strong is it?
Hyde: Whoa! Don't just jump in front of me like that! I mean, you're good, but my right hand won't listen to me.

Linne

Pre-match:

Hyde: Don't worry, I'll protect you!
Linne: Hmph. That's my line, you amateur.

Post-match:

Linne: Beyond... lies only the darkness of night.
Hyde: If you're not ready for it, then go home.

Results:

Hyde: I can take care of myself, Linne. Let me continue to fight by your side.
Linne: Do whatever you want. Just don't become a sacrifice.

Waldstein

Pre-match:

Waldstein: I can feel it now! My blood is boiling!
Hyde: Jeez... don't give yourself a heart attack, old man.

Post-match:

Hyde: This is the essence of my power.
Waldstein: Hehehe... and you say I get worked up.

Results:

Hyde: What now, old man? Still wanna treat me like a kid?
Waldstein: Don't make me laugh, boy. You're barely breaking out of your shell. Talk to me again when your arms are the size of your torso.

Yuzuriha

Pre-match:

Yuzuriha: C'mon, Hyde; show Big Sis how cool you are!
Hyde: Sure, just watch me!

Post-match:

Yuzuriha: You've gotten so strong! Big Sis is so proud of you!
Hyde: Hey! Cut it out, Yuzu!

Results:

Yuzuriha: Hey Hyde, give me a back massage. Oh, and I'm thirsty, so bring me some tea. And don't forget the rice crackers!
Hyde: Ugh... I swear Yuzu, you're unbelievable.

Ruby

Pre-match:

Hyde: If you're scared, you can just stand back and watch.
Ruby: Same to you, Hyde. You don't have to fight if you're scared of me showing you up.
Hyde: Roger tha-! W-wait, hold on!

Post-match:

Ruby: Aww, it's over? It was just starting to get fun. Aww, too bad.
Hyde: Understand now? Even Lady Luck has given up on you.

Results:

Hyde: Whether here or in the Hollow Night, I can't avoid fighting. Sorry, Ruby. I'd like your help, but I don't want to subject you to these endless attacks.
Ruby: Naw, it's okay! As a Huntress, it's my duty to help those in need! Besides... it's kind of exciting! Hehe. ♪

    Linne 

Rachel

Pre-match:

Linne: What? Do you expect me to be your partner?
Rachel: Indeed. I believe our dance will be lovely.

Post-match:

Rachel: An unsurprising result.
Linne: Yeah. There's no getting around that skill gap.

Results:

Linne: I would have called that "impressive", but I cannot abide by your capriciousness. When you find yourself in the arms of eternity, you should at least have the decency to contain yourself.
Rachel: Oh, I disagree. There must always be a little room for amusement. Boredom is our greatest enemy, is it not?

Platinum

Pre-match:

Luna: We can take care of this ourselves! Just stay out of the way, pipsqueak!
Linne: I swear... better shut them up with skill.

Post-match:

Linne: Hmph. Looks like that's that.
Luna: How...could she be that strong?

Results:

Linne: So, have you got anything to say to me?
Luna: W-Well… You did pretty good, for a pipsqueak! I-I guess I can take pity on you and let you fight with us again.

Orie

Pre-match:

Orie: Let's see your skill, Princess of the Night Blade.
Linne: Sure. Watch and learn... little girl of the Licht Kries.

Post-match:

Orie: Can you stand? I meant to soften my strikes...
Linne: Well I'm sure they can drag themselves home, at least.

Results:

Orie: Wow, the embodiment of eternal reincarnation can really fight. I've underestimated your elegance, Phantom Princess.
Linne: Who are you calling a phantom? I swear... Kids these days have no respect for their elders...

    Waldstein 

Azrael

Pre-match:

Waldstein: Come! My claws shall make you my prey!
Azrael: Your prey? Don't be absurd! They're mine!

Post-match:

Waldstein: Unworthy! Absolutely unworthy!
Azrael: You glutton! I've hardly eaten my fill!

Results:

Azrael: I'm starving... You robbed me of my prey, and now I'm starving... You're going to pay for this, old warrior...!
Waldstein: Disgraceful... Barking for food like a stray dog. Very well. I shall engrave the essence of strength into your body!

Linne

Pre-match:

Waldstein: Hah! They dare tread into the path of the Night's Blade?! How reckless!
Linne: Let's send them home with their tails between their legs.

Post-match:

Waldstein: Do you fools still want more?
Linne: Run while you can. Even I can't deal with this beast.

Results:

Waldstein: Princess... As I say daily... you must train your body! Power is the heart of combat, and it only resides within those who train! With those scrawny arms, you shall accomplish nothing!
Linne: I refuse. Even I have a little self-respect.

    Gordeau 

Hazama

Pre-match:

Gordeau: My harvests are... a little special. I can't guarantee that you won't get involved.
Hazama: Don't worry... I specialize in quick escapes.

Post-match:

Hazama: What a harvest! You're a greedy one!
Gordeau: Of course. I carry the name "Greed" on my shoulders.

Results:

Gordeau: Look, isn't it about time you drop the act? My instincts are telling me that you are RIPE for harvesting...
Hazama: Oh my, you are a curious one. But you do know there's no point in harvesting crops that have already rotten, don't you?

Tager

Pre-match:

Tager: Engaging defenses... ugh, looks like they're a step ahead of us.
Gordeau: Aww... lighten up! It's just a fight, after all.

Post-match:

Gordeau: What a shame... this harvest isn't even edible.
Tager: I... don't imagine you'd eat any of these people, anyway.

Results:

Gordeau: Sorry I went a little wild there. This scythe's a bit too unwieldy to navigate around that big body of yours.
Tager: Not a problem. You're a valuable part of this team. Don't hesitate to use your full power as we continue fighting.

Yu

Pre-match:

Yu: Hard-boiled...?
Gordeau: Heh, now you're talking like a man.

Post-match:

Gordeau: You get too heated and you'll lose, got it?
Yu: Yeah, learning a lot!

Results:

Gordeau: A real man speaks with his actions, not his words. On the battlefield, the good talkers are usually the first to die.
Yu: Wow... I don't think I've ever met anyone who emanates such manly energy...

Yukiko

Pre-match:

Gordeau: A pampered lady like you is gonna fight? Are you jokin'?
Yukiko: Just watch me and see if I'm joking.

Post-match:

Gordeau: Hey! Not too shabby, young lady!
Yukiko: I hope you understand now how strong I've become!

Results:

Gordeau: Damn, that was scary. I thought I was gonna be burned to a crisp. Take it easy, will you?
Yukiko: Don't worry. Even if I do burn you, I can heal the damage. I'm a good healer, so you have nothing to worry about.

Waldstein

Pre-match:

Gordeau: Alright, time for a harvest!
Waldstein: I'll tear you out by your roots!

Post-match:

Waldstein: Ha! What a pathetic show of strength.
Gordeau: Maybe compared to you... Tough luck for you guys.

Results:

Waldstein: Just as I thought, these people were unworthy to harvest. They're nothing but cowards, running rampant on the battlefield... How utterly unfortunate.
Gordeau: Ah, relax. You'll get a ripe one one of these days.

    Orie 

Hyde

Orie: Let's go, Kido. Think you're ready?
Hyde: Whenever you are, Harada.

Post-match:

Orie: Phew, that was...quite an extra curricular.
Hyde: Man I miss the days when school was all we had to worry about.

Results:

Hyde: Geez, this is weird… Never thought I’d be fighting alongside you, Harada.
Orie: P-Please keep this a secret from everyone in class.

Weiss

Pre-match:

Orie: Weiss, it seems we are wanted.
Weiss: Oh, I'm honored. Let's treat them with the respect they deserve.

Post-match:

Weiss: The secret to victory…
Orie: Is justice!
Weiss: And nobility.
Orie: And, uh... teamwork, maybe.

Results:

Weiss: One should always strive to be the best version of herself. I want to be the best partner you could have.
Orie: Hehe, what a wonderful thought. Then I too promise to be your best possible partner, as long as time permits.

Blake

Pre-match:

Blake: You're not so childish as to confuse power for justice, are you?
Orie: But power is the fastest way to gain control of the situation, and here, we have no choice.

Post-match:

Blake: Let me stop you there, the battle’s done.
Orie: This match is settled.

Results:

Orie: I don’t believe that our justice is right for everyone. We merely wish to be a guiding light for the people.
Blake: Light, huh… Then I must be the shadow that light casts. Fine then. I’ll fight for the future I believe in.

    Carmine 

Nine

Pre-match:

Carmine: Stay back, my massive friend! You'll ruin my fun!
Nine: Oh dear. Suddenly I feel the urge to set this whole place ablaze.

Post-match:

Nine: Whew! I finally feel refreshed.
Carmine: Ugh! What are you, in heat?!

Results:

Nine: How was that? I tried to make things as lively as possible. Did you enjoy yourself?
Carmine: Shut up. You're lucky I'm not interested in old hags' blood.

Yukiko

Pre-match:

Yukiko: Attacking with your nosebleed! Awesome!
Carmine: No it's not! And that's not what I— goddammit!

Post-match:

Yukiko: Um, you are bleeding everywhere. Are you okay?
Carmine: Shut up! Leave me alone!

Results:

Carmine: The hell's wrong with you? Most people like you tend to run away screaming after they see me.
Yukiko: You act a little bit like one of my friends, so your behavior doesn't scare me. Besides, I wouldn't let some harsh language stop me here.

    Vatista 

Noel

Pre-match:

Noel: W-Wake up! They're closing in on us!
Vatista: *yawns*

Post-match:

Vatista: Test complete. Good night...
Noel: W-What?! You're going to sleep here?

Results:

Noel: Just who is this girl...? Does she even eat...? I only have simple, portable rations to offer, though...
Vatista: I will leave this decision to the program... With a vote of 99-to-1, we have decided against ingesting this "dark matter".

Hyde

Pre-match:

Hyde: Guess I'll have to hit you with everything I've got!
Vatista: No worries. I am sure you will survive.

Post-match:

Hyde: Sorry, I've never been good at holding back.
Vatista: Well you still have your body, so you should be okay.

Results:

Hyde: Man, I just wanna go home already... How much longer are the two of us gonna have to fight?
Vatista: To borrow a human phrase, "God only knows." Though, "A bad idea is worse than none at all" may also apply.

    Merkava 

Carmine

Pre-match:

Merkava: I shall enjoy feasting upon you!
Carmine: Now let's see you struggle!

Post-match:

Carmine: You're the smallest of small fry!
Merkava: And thus, hardly diversion.

Results:

Merkava: Guoooooooooh! It's not enough... I hunger! I THIRST...!
Carmine: Then why not dine on these leftovers? You are an animal, after all.

Hakumen

Pre-match:

Hakumen: I shall cut through any evil that stands in the path of righteousness!
Merkava: And I shall dine on their remains!

Post-match:

Merkava: Now you shall sate my hunger!
Hakumen: Did you really think I'd let a beast like you run free?

Results:

Hakumen: Should you fall to savagery, you do so at your own peril. Should that time come, my blade shall be there to cast judgement.
Merkava: Your words ring empty. My body is already that of an uncontrollable beast. I have no morals on which to be judged.

Hazama

Pre-match:

Merkava: Your aid is unnecessary. My hunger... is BEYOND RECOGNITION!
Hazama: Ooh, scary! This is why I can't deal with monsters.

Post-match:

Merkava: My body has fallen to savagery, though I still force my mind to resist.
Hazama: Yes... you have an unusual way of showing mercy. I find it unseemly.

Results:

Merkava: Fascinating. You and I are mirror images of each other. I have shattered my human shell in favor of this beastly form, but you... You are a beast, yet choose to cover yourself with a human shell. Our forms may be different, but our nature is the same.
Hazama: Please don't lump us in together. I have no interest in making friends with a monster like you.

Jubei

Pre-match:

Merkava: Your aid is unnecessary. My hunger... is BEYOND RECOGNITION!
Jubei: Hate to tell ya, but that's really not my thing.

Post match:

Merkava: Pathetic. What a fragile body you have.
Jubei: Ain't the body that matters, it's all about the mindset.

Results:

Merkava: I serve my bestial body, devouring as my instincts command. There is no room for questioning.
Jubei: Nah, I've seen ya question your consciousness. Ya haven't thrown your human mind away yet.

Mai

Pre-match:

Merkava: You dwell within an unusual piece of flesh... How enticing...
Mai: I-I promise I'm not very tasty!

Post-match:

Merkava: I see. Your body and spirit are in conflict.
Mai: Eugh, I don't like that look.

Results:

Merkava: Abandon that immature shell of yours and the conflict between your body and soul shall be erased.
Mai: If there's one thing I know, it's that I like who I am. No matter how immature or weak I may be, I'll never throw those away.

Naoto Shirogane

Pre-match:

Merkava: The humanity within me drives me to take part in this fight.
Naoto: Merkava-san... if there is a human soul within you, I will find it.

Post-match:

Merkava: I can contain the urge no longer...! NGHRAAAAAGGGHH!
Naoto: So his heart really is human... no, this is...!

Results:

Merkava: Living solely by my instincts would make me no different than an animal. That is not what I desire. Though my body may be that of a beast, my heart is human.
Naoto: I cannot determine exactly what you are at this moment... You don't seem like a bad person, but... Hmm. This requires further investigation.

Vatista

Pre-match:

Vatista: I will begin my sweep, in accordance with the Master's will.
Merkava: Very well. If we are both non-human, then it seems only fitting we run amok.

Post-match:

Merkava: Your attachment to your body... is the reason for your loss.
Vatista: But the expandability of the mind software is quite intriguing.

Results:

Merkava: I walk from humanity to nothingness, while you were born in the nothingness and strive to be human. If we are both covered in nothingness, then the destruction of natural law must suit us best.
Vatista: False. Although parallel processing is the autonomic nerves' chosen deliberation method, I reject your enforcement of the idea of a heterogeneous origin.

    Yuzuriha 

Labrys

Pre-match:

Labrys: Now these guys look pretty fun!
Yuzuriha: I remember wanting to show off my strength. Ah youth.

Post-match:

Yuzuriha: If you're gonna go crazy, choose your foes wisely!
Labrys: Hey don't push yourself too hard okay?

Results:

Labrys: Oh, I forgot to retract my Chain Knuckle. Was I daydreamin' or something?
Yuzuriha: H-Hey! Don't leave any of your body parts behind! My neighbors already give me enough looks because of the sword, body parts might get me arrested.

Platinum

Pre-match:

Yuzuriha: Aw, there there. Big Sis will protect you, okay?
Luna: Stop treating us like kids! So annoying!

Post-match:

Yuzuriha: Awww, it's okay. I know it was scary, but it's over now.
Luna: Cut it out already, dammit!

Results:

Luna: You see now? Luna's super strong!
Yuzuriha: You did so good! What a smart girl you are... But remember, if you need any help, just call Big Sis, okay?

    Mika 

Hazama

Yang: ...I can't use EXS, and I'm not a member of the Mika Militia. Though to be fair, it sounds kind of fun. We have to change the name to something cooler, though.

Nu

Pre-match:

Nu: Confirming damage report. Damage: negligible.

Nu: Who is this... "leader"?

Yu

Pre-match:

Weiss: It's an honor to fight with the leader of the Investigation Team.
