    • Who: Vulcan Raven
    • Note: Said before he disappears, seemingly consumed by his ravens.

    • Note: Before finishing this line, The End's false teeth come out, making the end of the line slightly distorted.

    • Who: Laughing Octopus
    • Notes: Line is said after shedding her armour, before attacking Snake. Character doesn't actually die, but fighting Snake "cleansed her mind", effectively ending the entity "Laughing Octopus".

  • You and the beasts are no different... scorched shadows born to the world. When a beast steps into the light... unless the light is put out... the shadows cannot be erased. So long as there is light... there is shadow. To return everything to normal... the light must be extinguished. And when that happens... you... will be... too.
    • Who: Big Mama/EVA

    • Who: Screaming Mantis
