Palutena: Yes, but your next mission can't wait. You must defeat Dark Lord Gaol.
Pit: Heh. "Dark Lord"? Seriously? Hasn't the dark-lord thing been done to death already?
Palutena: He's earned it. He's working for Medusa. Her forces are coming from HIS castle. A human army has gone to fight him, but they don't stand a chance.

Pit: So what are we talking here? Miniboss? Final boss? Well, whatever. I hope this dark lord's hungry for a hot plate of punishment!
