Dedication

A final thanks to Sci and AB, my fabulous co writers; Zon, the head artist; Nick, the sound developer; and Toon, the assistant, for doing a great job on everything they contributed to, albeit very minor roles. In my opinion, you helped with something bigger, and that's what counts.

Thanks to all the other users for even signing up!

Hope you enjoy.

Plot

Previously on Young Plumbers....

[The figure dashes across the street and then Brian jumps over a car to follow. That car then proceeds to crash into another car as the other recruits continue to follow Brian. The figure turns around a corner and then reaches a dead end. Brian slows down about 10 feet from the figure, who is now seen to be completed hooded and wearing black robes that conceal her entire body.]

[Woman]: My name is Sephone... I am Sci's mother and the wife of... Rigon... 

[A possessed Sci blasts an enormous stream of dark fire into the sky, opening a rift. He floats up into the air and then begins to head towards the rift. Two large, evil red eyes can be seen in the rift as Sci heads through it and disappears. A tall, muscular, and shadowy figure can be seen exiting the rift as it closes behind him. The figure, now visible as Rigon, lands exactly where Sci was standing, but in the other direction.]

[Rigon]: At last, I am free...

[Rigon, voiceover]: You are facing the true king of all darkness...

[Meanwhile, on Galvan Prime, the shockwave reaches the planet. Azmuth is in a building working with the Galvan named Derrick when all of a sudden, Paradox shows up and flashes Paradox and Derrick out of there. A second later, the building shakes and explodes into pieces as 1/4 of the planet is devasated. ] 

[Virton]: Nooo.. I won't have...you... win.... you're Hate. As long as you are Hate, you are nothing else. 

[Lotin]: You don't have a choice, Virton. He will win. 

[Lotin stabs Virton in the side as he drops his shield. Rob becomes Lotin, Will becomes Lucifer, Cassie becomes Viper, Nar becomes Arthur, Zon becomes Chemestris, Brian becomes Ra'ol Set and Aevan becomes Blitz. Water becomes Paper, Jack becomes Future Paper, Sub becomes Horkbok and Ben becomes Sci. They place Water, Jack, Sub and Ben in stasis cuffs. ]

[Ancy]: I knew it was too good to be true. You couldn't have won that fast. And now that you're here... I think my masters would be pleased to know that I, Ancy, recruit of the Villians Academy defeated the Plumbers once and for all. So I shall say... goodbye. 

[At the same time, multiple images of New York City, Washington D.C., Athens, Galvan Prime, and Naran Manos being attacked by the Nikon'ali and the Demon Snakes appear, showing Plumbers fighting. Meanwhile the fight between Hope and Fear versus Lucifer occurs. ] 

[Hope]: Have Hope, my brother. We can defeat him!

[Fear]: I know. I just hope you aren't scared of winning. 

[Rigon]: I'm quite shocked, actually. I'm amazed at how lower beings could fight me for this long.

[Plumber]: Not including the Earth and Galvan Prime, both of which the fighting is still going on... we believe the death toll to be 19,019,019 sentient lifeforms dead.

[Hope]: It is time. The Guardian has proved himself over and over. He must have the Hero's Sword.

[The Hero's Sword comes out of the portal and lands in the hands of Paper. Paper puts away his bow and arrows and gives them to his future self. He grasps it and smiles. ]

[Suddenly everyone but Virton, Paper, and Rigon fly upwards, and head towards the portal. ]

[Kali]: No...No...NOOO!

[She screams as they all enter the portal. They land in Rigon's prison, and all pass out, injured from the landing. The portal closes as Rigon laughs. Meanwhile, the recruits run in the halls.]

[Rob]: Guys, this place is about to blow. Head to the ship now!

[Rigon shoots lighting at Paper, who uses the Hero's Sword to block it. Paper struggles as Virton helps fight it, using his own magic to sent the lighting back. All of a sudden, a powerful burst sends the two backwards. Rigon hits the Tower, destroying it as he falls down and the rubble falls on him. Paper and Virton fall to the ground, unconscious. As the battle goes on... the rest of the galaxy shakes in fear as the Alignment continues, the Prophecy goes on... and the end of the Universe possibly lies ahead. The End is here. It then cuts to the scene in the base. ]

 
Mediterranean Sea
July 15, 2014, 12:01 AM EET

[The team at the Mediterranean base is running out of the base back towards their ship. The red alarm lights for the self destruct sequence are flashing and the siren is going off. As the recruits run, Rex, Rocket, and Ancy chase after them.]

[Ancy]: You guys get out... I've got them...

[Rocket]: We're not leaving you behind...

[Ancy]: Fine...

[He turns his legs into a motorcycle and then zooms forward at the recruits. He is able to tackle Zon to the ground, but Sub doubles back and blasts an ice wave at Ancy. Rocket jumps in the way of the blast and counters the ice blast with his own blast of kinetic energy. He powers it through Sub and knocks him back into Brian. Will jumps over the two and then punches Rocket in the face. Rocket stumbles backwards and is then caught by Rex and pushed back into Will. He teleports to avoid and then reappears behind Rex and kicks him forward to the ground. Ancy slowly gets up and turns his hands into swords. He charges at Will, but gets attacked by Nar from behind. Nar slashes his katanas at Ancy, but Ancy counters every single slash with a slash of his own. Zon gets up and then blasts a stream of green energy, knocking Ancy back. Water charges down the hallway and then punches Ancy several times to the ground. He continues into Rex, who had been punching Will with the Smack Hands. Rex crashes against the wall and dents it. Rocket then blasts kinetic energy at Water, but he avoids, making the kinetic energy hit the wall weakened by the dent, which breaks the wall open allowing water to pour into the room.]

[Rex]: ROCKET YOU!

[Rocket]: Now what?

[Brian]: On top of that, we have only 2 minutes until this place goes boom...

[He is looking at a clock on a holographic screen on his wrist. The clock counts down in real time and is now only at 1:55.]

[Ancy]: Look, I know you guys would never agree to this any other time, but truce?

[Rob]: NO WAY!

[Aevan]: You'd rather die down here, Rob?

[Rob is silent as he looks angrily at Aevan.]

[Aevan]: We don't have a choice...

[Rob]: Fine...

[Brian]: Truce, now let's go...

[The countdown is at 1:40 as they continue to run forwards. The camera cuts to them arriving in the room with the ship with about 45 seconds left. All the recruits and the three apprentices pour onto the ship, but Cassie trips and falls as the room begins to flood with water.]

[Will]: Cassie!

[Will runs out of the ship and over to Cassie. He helps her up as they begin to walk over to the ship.]

[Cassie]: Thanks...

[Will]: Don't mention it...

[They continue to walk over. Cassie runs onto the ship as Will slips this time and falls.]

[Brian]: Come on only 19 seconds left...

[Will stands up but the water is now starting to flood the ship. He tries to get up but then falls back in.]

[Cassie]: WILL! Get up! Can't you teleport!?

[Will slowly gets up as the water is now up to his neck. He submerges and when he looks back up, he can barely see the door to the ship.]

[Brian]: Five seconds, we have to go!

[Cassie]: NO!

[Brian closes the door as Zon steps on the accelerator and sends the ship zooming out into the Mediterranean. Two seconds later, the base explodes with Will still inside. The camera cuts onto the ship as Cassie looks back towards the explosion. Tears are now flooding her eyes.]

[Cassie, angry]: NO!

[The other people on board stand silent and looks at Cassie.]

[Cassie, angry]: We have to go back for him...

[Brian]: We can't Cassie... It's too late... He sacrificed himself to save you and...

[Cassie]: If you won't go back for him then I will...

[She storms off towards the area of the ship with extra oxygen tanks. She takes out the tank of her suit and then replaces it with a new one before closing her suit and walking over to the exit pod.]

[Brian]: Cassie, you can't...

[Cassie]: Just try and stop me...

[Brian]: As leader of this team I order you to stop!

[Cassie simply ignores him and then heads over to the pod. Jack walks over to Cassie.]

[Jack]: Cassie, think, even if he's still alive, you have a very low possibility of bringing him back and saving yourself, too...

[Cassie]: Stop trying to stop me... It won't work...

[She enters the exit pod and the ejects herself into the sea. She activates her rocket boots and then flies off into the distance. The camera cuts to the Destination. Rigon is standing in the ruble of the collapsed tower. Virton is unconscious on the ground about 30 feet away from Rigon with Paper unconscious just 20 feet away on the other side. Thousands of members of Rigon's army are unconscious, too, with very few still standing. Slowly, Rigon sheathes his sword and looks to Virton.]

 
The Destination
July 15, 2014, 5:19 AM EDT

[Rigon]: It's a shame... That I have to kill you... You're both such brave, courageous, and valiant fighters...

[He turns to Paper.]

[Rigon]: Who am I kidding! I will take pleasure in killing you and then crushing the galaxy under my footsteps. Now, after thousands of years of waiting...

[He takes out his sword as he turns back to Virton.]

[Rigon]: It ends... And I think I'll start with you...

[As he slowly begins to walk over towards Virton, Paper is seen slowly and quietly getting up off the ground. He looks at the Hero's Sword before slowly reaching for it and grasping it in his hands. He looks up at Virton and sees Rigon now just five feet away from him. Paper stands up straight and then begins to follow Rigon towards Virton. He sees Rigon move his sword over his head, preparing to stab down into Virton's chest. As he slowly begins to move his arms down in a stabbing motion, Paper zooms forward with the little energy he has left and then jumps and knocks the sword clean out of Rigon's hands and then skids away from Rigon and slowly stands up.]

[Rigon]: Sadly you're awake... But I guess that allows for a fair fight...

[Paper]: Fight me, Rigon! I dare you...

[Rigon]: Oh but it is you who is daring me... And with what I've already done to you, you're going to be wishing you had stayed on the ground...

[Theme Song]

[Paper is standing across from Rigon as Virton remains on the ground, still unconscious. Rigon steps over towards Paper as he backs up. He makes his sword come back into his hand and then slashes it down against Paper's sword. Paper pushes against Rigon and then is able to knock him back for just long enough to speed around him, grab Virton, and then run off.]

[Rigon]: Coward... You can run... But you cannot hide...

[The camera cuts to Paper running with Virton's body on his back. Paper eventually trips and then goes rolling across the ground. Virton hits the ground and rolls across the ground, too. Paper slowly gets up and looks to Virton, who is about 10 feet away from him.]

[Paper]: Virton... get up! Wake up! I need your help...

[Virton does not reply.]

[Paper]: Are you... alive?

[There is still no reply. Paper stands straight up now and then walks over towards Virton.]

[Paper]: WAKE UP!

[Virton quickly leans forward and then looks at Paper.]

[Virton, surprised]: You're alive...? I'm... I'm alive?

[Paper]: Yes, we're...

[Virton]: Where's Rigon...

[He jumps up and looks around.]

[Paper]: Rigon is on his way here... I was able to get us away from him to buy us some time... But he'll be here in just a couple minutes... We need a strategy... How could we defeat him...? How did you defeat him?

[Virton]: How did I defeat him? I know I used the mirror and I just persisted and stayed with the fight until I beat him... You must either find a better way, or do the same...

[Paper]: There must be a better way...

[Virton]: You better find one soon... Because he's already here...

[They see Rigon just about 50 feet away from him. He is seen grinning as the camera cuts to Sci and the other recruits, Future Paper, Future Toon, the Magisters, Kali, Athena, Argo, Heria, the Sages, and the Elite all in Rigon's prison. Sci is standing alone as most of the others are on the ground, unconscious or almost unconscious. Sci helps Kali up as Lotin and Ra'ol Set slowly begin to get up as well.]

 
Rigon's Prison
July 15, 2014, 5:50 AM EDT

[Kali]: Is there anything we can do? Or do we wait until Rigon returns to this realm...?

[Sci]: Unfortunately we must wait... Who knows how long it will be... It may be forever...

[Kali]: Then we shall—BEHIND YOU!

[Kali brings Sci to the ground with her to avoid a sword slash from Lotin. Sci and Kali slowly begin to back away from Lotin.]

[Sci]: Lotin, listen! You must understand that Rigon is not going to listen to you... His made you think that he would spare you but this was only so you would continue your plans of freeing him... He can't be controlled...

[Lotin]: LIAR! I will get out of this prison and I will control Rigon... His power will become my power and I will rule the galaxy...

[Ra'ol Set]: No Lotin, we were wrong... Rigon cannot be controlled... Perhaps we should have stuck with simply trying to defeat Rigon and reseal him in here when he was freed instead of trying to control him... Now that I think about it...

[Lotin]: Are you betraying me? After all this time you pick now!?

[Ra'ol Set]: No, I was not...

[Sci]: I don't have time for this... Fight each other if you will... Anything to pass the time...

[Lotin]: Arguably you are right... Nothing can be done while we are in here to escape, so we might as well just rest until we are freed...

[Sci]: Ugh, now leave me alone...

[Sci walks away with Kali, leaving Lotin and Ra'ol Set standing next to each other as Viper arrives next to Lotin on the other side.]

[Ra'ol Set]: That girl... Something about her just isn't right... Something very... suspicious...

[Viper]: How so?

[Ra'ol Set]: I know her from somewhere... I just can't put my finger on it...

[Lotin]: If it is important... It will come to you... And if it is not... Then who cares...

[Ra'ol Set]: Something's been different about you lately, Lotin...

[Lotin]: I've been trying to not think about spending the rest of my life in here... Especially when we're all immortal...

[The camera cuts to Sci and Kali walking throughout the prison. They see everyone else still unconscious from the fight.]

[Kali]: The waiting is driving me crazy... It's been, what, 10 minutes and I'm already bored...

[Sci]: Think about how my father must have felt... He was in here for almost 2000 years...

[Kali wraps her arms around Sci and then hugs him tightly. Sci blushes and then wraps his arms around Kali to savor the moment.]

[Kali]: I can't believe that in the middle of the final battle... We have time to spend with each other... And this is what it's going to be like afterwards, right?

[Sci]: Yeah, it is...

[They continue to hug as the camera cuts to Cassie swimming in the Mediterranean. She is only a little bit away from the range of the explosion. She looks around but does not see Will anywhere. She sees two shadows off in the distance and then swims over towards them. They are moving away from her at a fast rate, so she speeds forward with her rocket boots and then eventually slows down when she arrives at the continental shelf. She eventually lands on the ground and then stands up and looks out of the water. It is early in the afternoon, yet no one is on the beach and clouds are covering the sky. The mask of the suit opens up as Cassie arrives on shore.]

[Cassie]: Where'd those figures go...?

[She looks around and sees two figures standing on the far side of the beach.]

[Cassie]: Will?

[She begins to run over to him and then stops when she gets about 20 feet away. She is now close enough to realize that the two figures are Will and Sephone. Rook and Max Tennyson are also just behind them.]

[Cassie]: WILL!

[She runs over to him and then hugs him as he blushes and Sephone stands to the side.]

[Cassie]: You're alive, oh I was so worried...

[Will]: You were... worried about me?

[Cassie]: Yes, I guess I was...

[She also blushes now.]

[Sephone]: If you don't mind... We should probably return to the sea before Rigon's armies arrive on the planet... I can feel his aura getting close... If his army arrives, we're in for a massive fight...

[Suddenly, thousands of Nikon'ali begin to rise from the ground as more appear in the air. They all begin to march towards Will, Cassie, and Sephone as they back towards a wall.]

[Will]: Come on Cassie, what are we doing? We can take enough of them to get back into the sea, right?

[Cassie]: Sure can...

[Will]: And then we can have a moment...

[Cassie]: Yeah...

[Cassie and Will charge at the Nikon'ali as Sephone stays back. Will charges through a bunch of soldiers and knocks them all to the ground. He teleports and then kicks a soldier before repeating this several times with other soldiers. Rook turns his prototool into a sword and begins to rip through a bunch of Nikon'ali. Max Tennyson blasts through a bunch with his blaster. Cassie kicks one soldier and then turns and absorbs a blast of energy from another soldier. She blasts energy at a bunch of soldiers, but more soldiers in the air swarm down onto Cassie. She swats one away, and then Will jumps in and kicks another one. He lands next to Cassie and then continues to fight through the soldiers on the ground as she blasts energy at the ones in the sky.]

[Will]: There are too many...

[Cassie]: Got any other ideas?

[Will]: Um...

[He looks into the sea.]

[Will]: Follow me!

[He grabs Cassie and then runs with her towards the sea.]

[Cassie]: Where are going?

[Will]: Just trust me...

[Will leads Cassie into the water. They continue to run until they now have to swim because they can't touch the bottom.]

[Will]: Go under!

[Will brings Cassie down underneath him as the army arrives at the edge of the sea. Underneath, Will takes out a small bomb and then activates it. He throws it over towards the surface as it explodes in a massive explosion that obliterates all of the army. The explosion goes over their heads, but they remain safe because they are underneath the water. The waves of the sea quickly douse the fire of the explosion as Cassie and Will raise their heads above the water and slowly begin to walk over to the shore. They both collapse next to each other once they reach the edge. They are breathing heavily, but are both okay.]

[Cassie]: That was... smart of you to think of that...

[Will]: I told you, you just need to trust me...

[They continue to lie on the ground next to each other as their breathing slows. Cassie grabs Will's hand.]

[Cassie]: Does this bother you?

[Will]: Not at all...

[Will slowly stands up and then helps Cassie up, too.]

[Will]: Shouldn't we go find the others?

[Cassie]: We should...

[She takes out her Plumber's badge. Brian replies on the other end.]

[Brian]: Cassie, you're alive!

[Cassie]: Yeah, and so is Will... Can you come back and get us...

[Brian]: We're already on our way to your location... We'll be there in 10 minutes...

[Cassie]: Thanks...

[Cassie puts away and Plumber's badge as Will and Cassie continue to talk.]

[Will]: So is the mission over now?

[Cassie]: I guess it is...

[She grabs his hands and then pulls him in and kisses him on the lips briefly.]

[Will]: Are you leaving the Plumbers when it's all over?

[Cassie]: I was going to stay if you wanted to stay...

[Will]: Well then we're both staying...

[They kiss again as the camera cuts to Rigon's prison. The Sages have now woken up along with most of the recruits and Magisters. The Sages are standing across from Sci.]

[Joy]: After talking with each other, the Sages have realized that we can and will get out of here... At least, we can get you out of here to help defeat Rigon... We can use our magic to open a portal for just long enough to you, and maybe Kali can go through and join the fight outside.

[Kali]: Then do it...

[Sci]: Wait... I need the crystals...

[He turns to Lotin as Lotin turns to him.]

[Lotin]: What did you want? The crystals? Never...

[Sci]: What do you need them for? You've become Elite so they're practically useless now...

[Lotin]: Argh, I don't have a choice, do I?

[Sci]: Not a smart choice, no...

[Lotin]: Fine...

[He takes out the crystals and hands them to Sci. Kali grabs Sci's hand as the five Sages blast their energy into a centralized location just across from Sci and Kali. The energy builds and builds until a small portal has been opened.]

[Hornbok]: Good luck, Sci...

[Argo]: WAIT! I'm going to...

[Sci looks at Argo.]

[Argo]: I want to help my father...

[Sci]: Joy, do you have enough power to let him through, too?

[Joy]: Him yes, but no more...

[Sci]: Okay, then let's go...

[Sci, Kali, and Argo head through the portal. The portal closes a second later. The camera cuts to the Destination. Paper, Virton, and Rigon are locked into a sword fight. Paper jumps and slashes against Rigon's sword as Virton rolls around him and slashes against his back. Rigon grabs Virton's arm and then throws him into Paper, knocking both of them back. They quickly get up and charge back at Virton. Paper distracts him from the front as Virton goes behind him and then bends over. Paper backs up and then speeds as Rigon as he gets knocked back and trips over Virton before falling to the ground. Virton quickly gets up as Rigon slowly gets to his feet.]

[Rigon]: Impressive tactics... For children... At least compared to how old I am...

[Paper]: I've shown people that age doesn't matter before, so why should it matter now?

[He slashes several times at Rigon, but Rigon blocks energy single one. As they continue to fight, Sci, Kali, and Argo arrive just in front of Virton.]

[Virton]: Son, you're... free? And you brought help...

[Sci]: The Sages used their power to do so... Listen, I need you to distract Rigon so I can talk to Paper...

[Argo]: I can help with that...

[Argo takes out his sword as he and Virton run over towards Rigon. Virton jumps and slashes, knocking Rigon away from Paper. Virton continues to run at Rigon as Argo follows him. Paper looks around and sees Sci and Kali standing about 20 feet away from him. He begins to run over as the camera cuts back to the fight. Virton is now slashing so quickly that Rigon falls to the ground and then slides a little bit. Virton jumps into the air and then comes down in a stabbing motion, but Rigon knocks Virton to the side and then stands up and knocks Argo into the other direction.]

[Rigon]: Enough of this... You die now! There's no one to save you...

[He prepares a final attack against Virton, a stab directly to the chest, and then begins to move the sword down in that motion. Virton winces his eyes, but Rigon stops when Argo slashes him from behind. He spins around and then slashes Argo directly through the chest, killing him. He quickly turns to dust and then disperses into the air.]

[Virton, enraged]: SON!

[Commercial]

[Virton, enraged]: NO!

[Rigon]: First your wife... Now your son... Hopefully he isn't revived, too...

[Virton, enraged]: I'm going to murder you!

[Rigon]: I'd like to see you--

[Virton jumps up and then begins to slash rapidly at Rigon, so fast that he can't react. Virton slashes a giant cut across his chest and then jumps and kicks him in the face and knocks him down to the ground. He gets up only to be punched in the gut by Virton and then kicked back. Virton blasts magic at Rigon, holding him in place so that he can slash rapidly at him. He cuts him several times in the chest before delivering a final blow which knocks Rigon several hundred feet back. The camera cuts to Rigon's prison.]

[Nick]: Is there any way to watch what they're doing?

[Joy]: I'm sorry, but there is not... We used up all of our power opening up that portal...

[Lotin looks at Ra'ol Set and then nods his head.]

[Lotin]: NOW!

[Lotin draws his sword and then charges at Joy. He slashes several times at him, but Joy avoids and then continues to back up. The Plumbers now react as Hornbok draws his sword and begins to counter Lotin's slashes.]

[Hornbok]: What is the purpose of this? Why attack when there's no reason to...

[Lotin]: To kill you... We were just waiting for the Sages to have their power drained...

[He slashed downwards against Hornbok's sword and pushes against it. Hornbok is about to fall over when he sees flashbacks of different parts of his life. He sees him, Dillius, Relgo, Kruto, and Slick talking in the Academy, him throwing the sword at Khyber, killing him as the others watch and Alpha holds him, him as the Black Knight fighting Arthur, him talking to the council on Azalon with all the political heads of the planet watching, and finally him kissing Syla on the lips after they destroyed the Seismic generator. Back in real time, Lotin finally knocks him down. Slick jumps and punches Lotin back, but he then slashes at Slick and slices open his armor. Slick grabs his arm before jumping and punching with the other one. Lotin prepares to slash again, but Arthur jumps in his way and tackles Slick to the ground. Ra'ol Set fires rockets at Relgo and Kruto as they begin to charge at him. Kruto jumps to avoid a rocket and then jumps and punches Ra'ol Set back. He punches again, but Ra'ol grabs the punch and throws him into Relgo. Toon and Future Toon now blast enormous amounts of fire at Ra'ol Set. He blocks the fire with his armor, but even then it still pushes him back. Viper jumps over their fire blast and then kicks Future Toon to the ground and then punches Toon back. Nick blasts a stream of acid at her, but she spins around and kicks Nick back. He stumbles and then stops and blasts another stream of acid at her. She blocks with a white energy shield and then sends a blast of the white energy at Nick, knocking him onto the ground. Ivada charges at Blitz as they blast ice blasts at each other. Blitz powers through Ivada, and he then avoids and begins to charge at Blitz. He avoids another ice blast, forms and ice sword, and then slashes it against Blitz. They continue to go back and forth as the camera cuts to Bink and Lucifer blasting magic attack at each other. She blasts an enormous blast of magic at Lucifer, but he blocks and eventually begins to push back with his own attack. The two attacks disperses as Future Paper fires an exploding arrow at Lucifer, knocking him to the ground. Chemestris runs over to Bink and then starts to throw punches at her. Bink blocks with magic orbs, but Chemestris blasts a water current onto Bink, knocking her back. Future Paper jumps in and then roundhouses Chemestris to the ground. He turns and sees Hornbok and Lotin slashing their swords against each other.]

[Hornbok]: You used to be my friend... Why do you want me dead?

[Lotin]: I want everyone dead... Just because you are my friend, doesn't mean that I'm going to spare you...

[Hornbok]: What about all the good times we've had?

[Lotin]: No, I remember nothing...

[Hornbok]: What about the first two Plumbers you killed?

[Lotin]: What about them...

[Hornbok]: They were Paper's parents... And he knows... And the fact that the Guardian was recruited as a Plumber is all your fault...

[Lotin's eyes widen as he stops pushing against Hornbok's sword. He sees a flashback of himself killing Paper's mom and dad. Hornbok pushes him onto the ground and then sheathes his sword.]

[Lotin]: It is all my fault... Everything is my fault...

[Hornbok]: No, you're the reason we found the Guardian, and thus if we succeed, you will be the reason that Rigon was defeated... So stop trying to kill us and start focusing on the rest of your life... I'm willing to let you off if you stop this...

[Lotin]: Really?

[Hornbok]: Yes...

[He helps Lotin up and then takes out energy cuffs and cuffs him.]

[Hornbok]: No...

[Lotin]: LIAR!

[Viper]: LOTIN!

[Viper runs over to Hornbok and then roundhouses him. She jumps and kicks him in the face and then begins to work at Lotin's energy cuffs. She is eventually able to break them off.]

[Lotin]: Thanks...

[He turns to Hornbok.]

[Lotin]: Thought my defeat would be that dues ex machina...? Luckily I'm always prepared for everything... And that means I gave everyone a pair of keys to standard energy cuffs...

[Hornbok]: I didn't think it would work... Which is why those were fakes...

[Lotin]: Then what's the purpose of...

[Hornbok takes out a trigger and then prepares to press a button.]

[Hornbok]: Surrender, or I'll dump you into a black hole... That's where that warp drive will take you...

[Lotin and Viper put their hands in the air.]

[Lotin]: You wouldn't dare...

[Hornbok]: Well I do... Now do you promise to surrender and be taken into custody... Or would you rather be swallowed by a black hole...

[Lotin]: I'm proud of you Hornbok... You finally outdid me...

[He drops to his knees.]

[Lotin]: And I need a break...

[Viper drops down next to him and leans her head on his shoulder.]

[Viper]: It wasn't supposed to end like this...

[Lotin]: I know... Just don't worry...

[Bink]: Elbbub lacigam a ni meht part

[A magical bubble appears around Lotin and Viper. Suddenly, more magical bubbles appear around Ra'ol Set, Blitz, Arthur, Chemestris, and Lucifer.]

[Toon]: I can't believe it... The Elite have finally been... captured, but still defeated...

[Nick]: We won...

[Ivada]: Not yet we didn't... We still have to wait for Paper and Sci to pull through...

[The camera cuts to Paper, Sci, and Kali standing in the Destination.]

[Paper]: How is this possible?

[Sci]: The Sages were able to open a portal and let us as well as Argo escape... We brought the crystals, and it looks like you have the Sword of the Hero.

[Paper]: I do...

[Sci]: And that means we can create the ultimate weapon...

[He hands Paper the crystals as the four crystals connect at the point where the handle of the sword meets the blade. The crystals are aligned in almost the exact some position as the blade itself. The purple blade begins to glow with the energy of the crystals.]

[Paper]: Now I feel powerful... Now I feel like I can defeat him... And then everything will be over...

[Sci]: I can't believe just less than two years ago... We were just ordinary Plumber's recruits... And now we're on the verge of saving the universe from it's ultimate end...

[Paper]: Yes, now let's make sure we actually save it...

[He begins to walk over to where Virton is. Rigon is now walking towards Virton, too. Paper stands next to Virton and waits for Rigon to arrive. Sci and Kali are standing next to him on the other side.]

[Virton]: Is this your plan? The ultimate weapon...? What if it doesn't work?

[Paper]: I've been thinking of an alternative... but hopefully it doesn't come to that...

[Paper charges at Rigon as they slash their swords against each other. Paper slashes from the left as Rigon counters and then punches at Paper. He jumps to the side and then spins around and tries to slash at Rigon's side, but Rigon jumps forward and then spins around and blocks another slash from Paper. They slash their sword again as the energy in Paper's sword begins to move throughout Rigon's body. He ignores the extra energy and simply continues to slash at Paper as he avoids or counters every attack. Rigon knocks Paper back, but Sci jumps in his way and throws a rock at Rigon, making him stumble backwards.]

[Rigon]: YOU! Son, how is this possible? You should be imprisoned...

[Sci]: I should be, but the Sages had other plans...

[Rigon]: I've already killed one person today... And here are four more people begging to be killed as well...

[Sci]: No, you will not kill any more... You are going back into your prison... Where you belong!

[Sci blasts him with a stream of light that forces Rigon back. He covers his eyes.]

[Rigon]: You may be able to keep me at a distance with that power, but if you really want me to leave then you'll have to actually fight...

[Sci]: Then a fight you shall get!

[Sci stops the light and then takes out a sword and begins to slash at Rigon. The two go into a fury of slashes at each other as Paper, Virton, and Kali watch.]

[Paper]: This is getting us nowhere...

[Kali]: Agreed, the fights will simply go on forever...

[Virton]: You're alternative...?

[Paper]: No, it wouldn't work...

[Virton]: What is it?

[Paper]: Well, Rigon is a sage, right...?

[Virton]: Indeed he is...

[Paper]: Well, if I could somehow get him onto the Spiritual Plain, as if I was passing his trial like I did with the other sages, then you could knock him out while he was vulnerable...

[Virton]: You can't do that! You would die to!

[Paper]: I know... I am willing to make that sacrifice...

[Virton]: If you say so...

[Paper]: Tell the others that it was the only way...

[Virton nods his head as Paper walks forward. He sees Rigon and Sci simply slashing away at each other.]

[Paper]: RIGON!

[Rigon slashes Sci to the ground and then turns to face Paper.]

[Rigon]: Why have you called me?

[Paper]: I have a deal to make with you...

[Rigon]: Continue...

[Paper]: Am I correct in saying that since you are a Sage, you can go onto the spiritual plain?

[Rigon nods and Paper continues.]

[Paper]: Then why not fight there? One and one... The winner is the only survivor...

[Rigon]: You're a clever child, but you are foolish... I agree, but know that you will never survive...

[Rigon raises his hands and brings both himself and Paper onto the Spiritual Plain.]

 
Spiritual Plain
July 15, 2014, 7:06 AM EDT

[Paper and Rigon arrive, and a standing across from each other. Paper is still holding the Sword of the Hero and Rigon is still holding the Sword of Rigon.]

[Rigon]: We have arrived... Let the death match, begin...

[Commercial]

[Paper and Rigon charge at each other and begin to slash their swords against each other. Paper jumps and slashes the sword across Rigon's chest and cuts him there. He begins to bleed as he knocks Paper back and then jumps towards him. Paper rolls away and then kicks Rigon's legs out from underneath him. He spins up and then slashes his sword against Rigon's and then lands on the ground and charges forward. He continues to slash at Rigon until he eventually ducks underneath a sword slash and then slashes at Rigon's leg and makes him fall to the ground. He slowly begins to get up as he looks at Paper.]

[Rigon]: I do have to admit, I have't had this much fun fighting in almost 2000 years... Hopefully the fun lasts...

[Paper]: What's your motive Rigon? I'd really like to know...

[Rigon]: Would you now? I suppose I can tell you since you're about to die anyway... Along with my 6 siblings, we were the Sages... The chosen protectors of the universe, each assigned to symbolize the seven characteristics held closely to our people. My characteristic was Hate, but my people didn't value it in the way you might think... They saw Hate in a terrible way, and only valued it because they wanted to teach others about its evil and might. I only saw Hate in the world, though... The other six characteristics, even Fear, Rage, and Grief all had their places, but I was like an outcast... No one offered me their compassion or was willing to take me in... I wanted to change that... I wanted to fix the universe...

[Paper]: And then you took the name Rigon...?

[Rigon]: Indeed I did... I soon slaughtered Hate and created my own army, the Nikon'ali... Before the end, I met the only person in the universe who had ever offered me compassion... My wife, Sci's father, a human, surprisingly, by the name of Sephone... The Sages were upon me, so I had to leave, but I never forgot her... Then came the battle against Virton... We were taken to the Infinity Pool and from there I don't remember what happens next... But do you understand where I am coming from? I want to change the world to make it a better place...

[He stands up and then swings his sword to prepare for the fight to continue.]

[Rigon]: Now die already!

[As they charge at each other, the camera cuts to Virton, Kali, and Sci watching their bodies as they stand motionlessly in the physical world. Virton takes out his sword and then slowly begins to walk over to Rigon.]

[Virton]: This better work...

[He slashes his sword and hits Rigon, but the sword does not go through his body and instead stops motionlessly against it.]

[Virton]: Paper needs to weaken him more... He's too focused on protecting himself... We'll just need to hope Paper can pull through...

[Back on the Spiritual Plain, Paper and Rigon are still fighting. Paper slashes his sword rapidly at Rigon and eventually cuts him in the chest. He slashes the sword against Rigon's face and then jumps and kicks Rigon back. Rigon slashes down onto Paper's sword and almost knocks him to the ground, similar to what Lotin did to Hornbok. Paper has flashbacks of different parts of his life, a Plumber telling him that his parents are dead, being congratulated by the Magisters for defeating Vilgax on his first day at the Academy, fighting the newest recruits under the control of a Xenocyte, finding out he was the Guardian, fighting the Ringmaster, Archangel, and Revel in the cave, and finally Bink smiling at him. He slashes his sword against Rigon's and is able to knock the sword out of Rigon's hands.]

[Paper]: Face it Rigon... You've been beaten...

[Rigon]: Perhaps I... Then I'm going down fighting...

[He charges at Paper and punches him back. As Paper rolls across the ground, he jumps and then punches Paper into the ground. Paper slashes the sword at Rigon and knocks him back. Rigon charges forward again, but Paper blocks the blow with a sword slash and then jumps and kicks Rigon back in the face. He lands and then jumps at Rigon and punches him back. He speeds at Rigon and slashes quickly three times and makes him fall onto the ground.]

[Paper]: Bye Rigon... NOW!

[Virton hears a very quiet scream come from Paper's body. He quickly takes out his sword and stabs it through Rigon's back, but instead of coming out of Rigon's chest in the real world, it comes out of his chest in the Spiritual Plain. He slowly stands up as the sword remains lodged in his chest. Paper has moved over to where Rigon's sword was and collapses to the ground as Rigon's sword has disappeared with the Hero's Sword at Paper's side.]

[Rigon]: Insignificant children... You cannot simply just kill me... I will not let you imprison me either!

[He pushes the sword back out of his body into the physical world as both he and Paper exit the spiritual plain and collapse in the phyiscal world. As Virton stands back and Sci and Kali rush over to him, a portal begins to appear in the sky that all the Plumbers, the Sages, Athena, Heria, and the captured Elite come out of. The Sages fly over to Virton, who takes out the Mirror of the Stars.]

[Joy]: We won't be needing that, Virton... We can take care of it from here...

[The Sages make Rigon float off back through the portal as it closes. The camera cuts to different places throughout the galaxy and shows the Nikon'ali all turning into dust and blowing away.]

[The Plumber walks up to Arnux and takes off his mask, revealing himself to be Dovano. They smile and then shake hands. Back at the Destination, a magical purple lock appears over where the portal was and then locks shut and disappears. The Plumbers slowly begin to walk over to where the fight was.]

[Hornbok]: You did it! Rigon has been defeated...

[Sci]: And you captured the Elite!?

[Nick]: But what about Paper?

[The large group turns to look at Paper and he lies on the ground. The entire group walks over as Nick, Bink, Toon, Sci, Kali, Virton, Hornbok, the Sages stand in front with the others in the back. Future Paper pushes his way to the front and looks at the dying Paper.]

[Toon]: No, this can't happen...

[Virton]: He told me that the way he defeated Rigon... Was the only way...

[Most of the group starts to cry. Bink drops to her knees next to Paper and begins to cry especially hard. She places her hand on his back as Sci, Toon, and Nick drop down next to each other.]

[Sci]: He was our leader... What are we supposed to do now that he's dead...

[Nick]: He was... the strongest of all of us in courage and bravery... He always put the team first...

[Bink]: And he sacrificed himself to save us...

[Voice]: Good thing he will always be remembered...

[The recruits suddenly stop crying.]

[Bink]: Who said that?

[Paper slowly begins to move and then turns over and looks at the team.]

[Paper]: I did of course...

[Sci]: You're alive!

[Sci, Toon, Nick and Bink all help him up. His arm is broken and he has a headache, but he is otherwise okay.]

[Toon]: How were you able to...

[Paper]: Simple...

[The camera goes into a flashback.]

[Paper]: As Virton stabbed Rigon, I grabbed my sword and slashes it hard against Rigon's to destroy it, siphoning off the excess energy from the rupture in the spiritual plain that would have killed me... Now both swords are destroyed and Rigon is back in his prison...

[Bink]: And most importantly you're alive... And since the mission is over...

[She holds Paper's hand on his non-broken arm in her own. Nick grimaces a bit but then lightens up. Suddenly, a Plumber's ship arrives with of the other Plumbers and the three apprentices on it. The lands and all the team gets out and heads over to the other recruits.]

[Rob]: And everything is back to normal... Sort of... Rigon was defeated?

[Hornbok]: Yes, and the base...

[Brian]: Destroyed...

[The camera shows Will and Cassie.]

[Will]: So now that everything is over...

[Cassie]: Say no more...

[She kisses him on the lips. Kali suddenly grabs Sci's arms and pulls him in towards her.]

[Kali]: It's all over...

[Sci]: I... can't believe it... My curse has been lifted... And everything is truly back to normal...

[They kiss on the lips. Bink sees this and then looks at Paper.]

[Bink]: Ah who cares?

[Bink kisses Paper on the lips.]

[Hornbok]: Young love... Something I will never truly understand...

[The camera cuts to Virton, Athena, and Heria standing near each other. Virton and Athena are hugging.]

[Athena]: Where is our son?

[Virton]: He... sacrificed himself to save me...

[Athena]: No...

[Virton]: I'm sorry... There was nothing I could do...

[They continue to hug as the camera cuts to Rex, Rocket, and Ancy approaching Lucifer in his bubble.]

[Lucifer]: Ancy, free me this instant!

[Ancy]: No, I quit...

[Rex]: Same goes for me...

[Rocket]: I'm out if you two are...

[Lucifer]: I never should have recruited you...

[The camera cuts to Viper and Lotin in their bubble.]

[Lotin]: You said you wanted to spend more time together...

[Viper]: Not in that kind of a way... But it's better than nothing...

[Viper and Lotin kiss as Hornbok stands over them.]

[Hornbok]: I'm going to give you once last chance Lotin... One last chance to change who you are...

[Lotin]: Forget it... I am who I am, and there's nothing you can do to change that...

[Hornbok]: Then jail it is...

[Lotin]: I can handle Incarcecon...

[Hornbok]: Well that's too bad... Because you're going to one of our other prisons...

[Lotin]: Perhaps I should have prepared something if this had happened...

[Hornbok turns around and sees the three apprentices walk over to him.]

[Ancy]: Mind if we join your team?

[Rex]: Even though I was permanently expelled once...

[Hornbok]: Be my guest... Now everybody!

[All the recruits, apprentices, Magisters, Future Paper, Future Toon, Virton, Athena, Heria, the Sages, Kali, and the captured Elite turn towards Hornbok in the center.]

[Hornbok]: All of you... Even the Elite played a key role in the defeat of Rigon... And for that... We are grateful... Now let us return home... And let us continue on with our lives...

[There is cheering in the large group as the camera cuts to Fellson City about a week later. Paper, Bink, Sci, Kali, Nick, Toon, Future Paper, Future Toon, Hornbok, and Syla are standing in the main room of the base. With the entire Grid removed, the city is safe once again.]

 
Fellson City
July 21, 2014, 11:19 AM EDT

[Hornbok]: Again, congratulations everyone... This is the first time we've all been together since the fight, so this is the first time I've been able to share any of this information with anybody... First off, Paper, Sci, Nick, Toon, Bink, you are all being promoted to Captain for excellent work and leadership skills shown not only in this fight but in all your work...

[Nick]: Thanks Hornbok...

[Hornbok]: Secondly, you are all hereby on a forced vacation for one month... Go where ever, do whatever, just take some time off... you all need it...

[Toon]: Awesome... Is there a third thing?

[Hornbok]: No, just make sure you relax and have some fun... Dismissed...

[Hornbok and Syla are seen holding hands as they walk away. Nick walks out, too. Toon and Future Toon quickly walk out in one direction as Future Paper leaves with them, leaving only Paper, Bink, Sci, and Kali in the room.]

[Paper]: Are you coming with me, Bink?

[Sci]: We should all go on a vacation together... It would be amazing...

[Bink]: I like that idea...

[Kali]: Okay, but where should we go?

[Sci]: We can decide that when it comes to it... Now let's go... This is going to be so fun!

[Bink, holding hands with Paper]: Tell me about it...

[They walk directly out of the front door of the base and arrive on a street in the city. They begin to walk over towards a car, but Paper notices that something is off. He looks up into the sky and sees a massive artificial satellite almost the exact same size of the Earth floating in the sky.]

[Paper]: What is that?

[Kali]: Who knows?

[Sci]: Looks like our vacation will have to be put on hold...

[Paper]: There's a world to save...

[The camera stays the same for a moment before cutting to black.]
