Frisk hadn't realized how their question could have disturbed the leader when they asked, but they could see the look on his face as he started to answer their question. In their experience, there was still hope for the SOUL if it was absorbed. The SOUL could still be reached, and spoken to, and it could even interfere if the SOUL wanted to. The SOUL may vanish afterwards, but still it was better than remaining where it wouldn't want to be...
The mood seemed to lighten though when Guile mentioned the gas masks and opened the crates. Frisk listened as Guile informed them about the gas masks and how to put them on. Of course, it wasn't long before Wario piped up at the insult and panicked over being dropped. Frisk couldn't help but laugh after Kirby chanted 'Drop' and Wario reacted to the hero. The child trotted over to the crate and got a small gas mask for themselves and put it over their head as instructed. They looked to Cloud, hearing his mutter, and answered him, "I can contact Woshua and have them help with your laundry if you'd like. When we're done with this mission of course,
As they answered, they also headed over to the wall and grabbed onto a strap that was attached to the wall. Their grip tightened as Guile warned the heroes to hang onto something as though their life depended on it. Frisk couldn't help but shout "WOAH!
" as the Ragnarok turned completely vertical and flew upwards. Their whole body was lifted and was being pulled and tugged at by the wind, considering they were smaller and lighter than the rest of the crew. They held onto the strap as tight as possible. If there was a time to remain DETERMINED and to not let go, it was definitely now. Thanks to their DETERMINATION, they managed to hang on and were not sent tumbling out. They landed on their feet after the hatch closed and the ship had straightened itself out.
After they were sure they weren't going to be sucked out of the ship again, they ran over to the window to watch the impact. They looked out of the window, and sure enough, there was a huge green mushroom cloud erupting from where they dropped Wario and Waluigi. Frisk held onto another nearby strap as the ring of aftershock shook the ship. They could feel that the ship almost went out of control, but Guile was able to keep it under control. Frisk looked to Guile as he laughed at the aftermath, and Cloud had reminded him to not anger the man. Frisk nodded in agreement, and they couldn't resist making a pun, "Well, he certainly knows the...fart of war,
It wasn't too long before the ship once again over the Butter Building. Frisk scanned the building to see that the King was nowhere to be seen. As Guile stated, he must've retreated to the interior of the castle. After Guile told them to come back as a group, Frisk gave them a Thumbs Up and answered enthusiastically, "Understood, Sir!
" After they gave the answer, the hatch was opened and Guile had bid them all good luck. They waved to Kirby, before jumping out themselves. Jumping out of the ship reminded them of their first memory of jumping into the Underground. Frisk aimed to land on Wario, since there was no bed of flowers on the balcony for them to land on.
Once they landed and the rest of the group landed, Frisk turned to face them, and spoke up in a serious tone, "OK, everyone. Before we go in, I want to let you know of something important. I can CHECK on the people we encounter and see if anyone absorbed Mario's SOUL. That being said, I don't want anyone to try and cause lethal damage to anyone. If someone has absorbed Mario's SOUL, then who knows if killing that person would hurt Mario as well? Plus, we want to be able to ask them questions, in case we have trouble finding Mario's SOUL,
Frisk then finished, "If anyone has any questions or criticisms, please say them now. If not, then let's get inside!
When the group entered, Frisk looked around the spacious room of the sixth floor. They did think it was kind of strange that there were no guards here, but it could be because of the stink bomb the entire group released on them. Unfortunately, before the group could even begin their search, a small figure rolled onto the scene on a beach ball. Something about this character, Marx, reminded Frisk of both Mettaton and Flowey. Of course, Marx had just told them that they had to defeat him and the other bosses in order to learn where Dedede is. After he gave the threat, Frisk could feel their SOUL drawn out, as per the norm for a battle.
The red heart hovered in front of their chest, and Frisk did not hesitate on pressing the ACT button in front of them and then the CHECK button. They pointed at Marx and focused on his SOUL. Even if Marx hadn't absorbed Mario's SOUL, it would be wise to get as much information as they can about Marx, since he was challenging them to a battle. Maybe there was a little social quirk that Frisk could use to get Marx to back down from the fight.
Of course, they were always prepared to dodge, just in case an attack came their way. It was like being in the Underground again, except this time...Frisk was not in the battle alone.
