Pre-Battle Dialogues (Story Mode) Edit

"KOF Teams" Intro

Athena: So, how's your training going, Kensou?
Kensou: It's going just fine, thank you very much! I feel like a brand new person! Just look at how manly I've become, Athena!
Athena: Uh... Sure... I guess?
Kensou: Hey, wait! You didn't even look properly! Did you even see these manly biceps!?
Athena: Oh, Kensou. You can't judge the manliness of biceps just by looking. You can only truly tell how manly a guy is by fighting a match with them.
Kensou: W-Wait, that's not really necessary, is it? Come on, say something, Teach!
Chin: Hmmm, I haven't seen you two spar in a while. It'd make for a good warm up, certainly!
Athena: See, I'm right! Great! Let's get started, Kensou!
Kensou: Why does this always happen!? Oh, all right. Let me show you a little of what I've learned!

Team Japan (Round 1 - Playing as Team Japan)

Athena: "Don't you ever wear your school uniform anymore, Kyo?"
Kyo: "Nah, I think I'm a bit too old for that now..."
Athena: "Really!? Then you finally graduated! Congratulations!"
Kyo: "Hm? Yeah... I guess... Something like that."
Benimaru: "Just tell her, Kyo. You couldn't ask for an easier lead in..."
Kyo: "S-shut up! There's nothing to say..."
Athena: "Wait, what's he talking about!? Kyo, you aren't..."
Kensou: "You're not still getting held back, are you!?"
Kyo: "No, I'm not! I'm just not in school anymore!"
Kensou: "Oh. So then did you graduate?"
Daimon: "Well, sometimes in a boy's life, things happen, and stuff changes..."
Benimaru: "He's been in all these incidents, and then he just disappeared for a while..."
Chin: "Still, I can't condone this. Winners don't quit, especially when it comes to school. This must be causing your parents so much grief. Why don't you finish school?"
Daimon: "He does make a good point, Kyo..."
Kyo: "Stop pressuring me into things! Let's get this fight over already!"
Kensou: "But... you didn't actually decide anything."
Benimaru: "It's probably best not to push the subject any further."
Athena: "O-Okay...

Team Elisabeth

Athena: You came here looking for Ash, didn't you?
Elisabeth: ...So you know? Either way, that information will do you no good at this point.
Athena: B-But...
Shen Woo: Hey, we haven't even started, and you're already looking weak! You'd better put up a good fight!
Kensou: We're just worried about you personally! It won't affect the outcome of the fight!
Duo Lon: You're so certain you'll win that you can show concern for us? Surely you're not that foolish...?
Chin: Now now, it's nothing like that. The kid just has some quirks, that's all. He's always trying to bear the world's problems by himself. It's painful to watch.
Elisabeth: ......
Athena: I know! We'll help you locate Ash!
Shen Woo: Wait, why would you do that?
Kensou: Well, it is our job to help people.
Duo Lon: Well, what about this match, then?
Athena: We will fight with all our might, obviously! After that, we will help you find Ash!
Elisabeth: I appreciate the sentiment. By talking with you, I've been able to sort out what I was feeling.
Athena: So...
Elisabeth: This is my family's problem! I cannot let young people like you become entangled in this!
Athena: E-Elisabeth!?
Elisabeth: If you really want to help our cause, you can do so by stepping aside now...
Kensou: Wh-What should we do, Teach? Looks like we only got her more fired up!
Chin: I don't think we can avoid this one. It's tough, but we'll have to deal with it.

Team Fatal Fury

Athena: "It's such an honor to fight the world-famous Terry Bogard!"
Terry: "Oh, stop. I'm nothing special. I'm just happy if I can get in a good fight."
Andy: "You've changed, Kensou. It looks like you've spent a lot of time training."
Kensou: "Thanks for noticing! I've got some new tricks up my sleeve too! Wanna see?"
Chin: "Hohoho, maybe we should have a little contest between Tung's students and mine, eh? Yes, yes, I like the sound of that. I'll just be sitting on the side, having a drink..."
Joe: "Hey, old man. Stop acting senile."
Chin: "Hm? Oh, sorry. I hadn't noticed you."
Joe: "They're having their own party over there, so why don't you entertain me for a while, huh?"
Chin: "But I'm already so old. I don't think I'd be much of a challenge for you..."
Joe: "I said cut the act, old man! You're Master Tung's friend, right? Then maybe you can teach me something! I want to show off some of my moves!"
Chin: "My my, what a spirited young man. All right, I guess I'll stretch my muscles a bit then."

Team Women Fighters

Yuri: "Hey, Athena, isn't it hard being an idol? I mean, you can't hang out with friends in public or date and stuff, right?"
Athena: "Yeah, there are some restrictions on my personal life... But I'm happy to be an idol, so I can accept those inconveniences!"
Mai: "But you're still so young! You should date! Love makes you prettier and stronger!"
King: "Oh, here we go. Again with the Andy stories..."
Yuri: "Hey, what about you, King!?"
King: "W-What are you talking about!?"
Yuri: "You've gotten a lot prettier ever since you started seeing my brother."
King: "D-Don't be ridiculous! Well, what about you? What's going on between you and Robert?"
Chin: "Hohoho, that brings back memories. I remember when I first met granny..."
Athena: "It's so nice that you all have someone special to talk so passionately about. I wish I could have someone like that in my life..."
Kensou: "Hey, wait a minute! You have me, Athena!"
Athena: "Huh? You don't count, Kensou you're like a friend, or an ally or something."
Mai: "Oh, poor Kensou♪ He's stuck in "just friends" jail."
Kensou: "Could you all shut up for a second? Athena, I really lo...l-lo...lo-lo-lo-lo!"
Athena: "Kensou! Not in front of everyone else!"
Yuri: "Oh? That's a suspicious response! Was that all an act just now?"
Athena: "W-What? There wasn't anything suspicious..."
Kensou: "Athena, I lo-lo... luhhhhh!"
Athena: "Oh, give it a rest already, Kensou! Look, it's time to fight now, okay? Let's go!"
Mai: "That's a shame... Still no progress this time, eh?"
Chin: "Hoho! That's youth for you!"

Team Kim

Kim: "I knew I would run into you here, Athena! The heart of the righteous never knows defeat!"
Athena: "Yes, exactly! Let's make this the best match ever!"
Hwa Jai: "Hey hey, wait a second here! We're fighting kids and the elderly? Is this some kind of joke?"
Kensou: "Watch your mouth, old man! There's no need to get personal. We're here in the finals. You know what that means, right?"
Kim: "Indeed. You are a worthy match. These two have trained under Master Chin. You know Master Tung, correct? This man and Master Tung are old friends."
Hwa Jai: "What!? He's a friend of Tung!?"
Chin: "Why, yes I am. I wonder how old Tung is doing..."
Raiden: "I may be a heel, but picking on senior citizens would look bad, even for me... Hey, gramps! How about I let you have a couple free hits or somethin'?"
Hwa Jai: "Shut it, Raiden! Kung fu grampas aren't something to mess with..."
Chin: "Hm? Are you talking about me? I think you're overestimating me a bit."
Raiden: "Relax, Hwa. I'm like 50 times his size. I'll crush him before he tries anything."
Hwa Jai: "How many times do I gotta tell you that size doesn't matter in a fight! Heh, we'd better just beat him up before he has time to try anything funny!"
Chin: "Now now, don't get all aggressive. I'm just a harmless old man..."
Kim: "We're not falling for that one, Master Chin. Allow us to take you on in battle!"

Team Japan (Finals - Playing as Team Psycho Soldier)

Athena: "Kyo, are you after Ash too?"
Kyo: "So you know? Good. That makes things easier. This is the final match. Sorry, but I really gotta win this one!"
Athena: "Well, so do we. We can't disappoint all the people who we've defeated up to this point. We can't afford to lose this match!"
Benimaru: "Wow, someone's ready for battle. Something happen, sweet thing?"
Kensou: "Joke all you want, blondie. We're not the kids you used to know."
Benimaru: "Oh, can you actually fight this time?"
Daimon: "Master Chin... So you're..."
Chin: "Hmph, I knew you would have it figured out by now. It's not that I don't trust you, but I'm going to have to ask you to step aside."
Kyo: "As if , old man... Besides, this is my problem, you hear? So just get out of my way!"
Athena: "Kyo, you shouldn't try to do everything on your own. We can help you too!"

Pre-Battle DialoguesEdit

Andy Bogard

Andy: "I can't go easy on anyone, no matter who the opponent is! That's the right thing to do as a martial artist!"
Athena: "Right! Let's give it our best!"
Andy: "I can sense your indomitable spirit! I can see why Master Chin chose you as one of his disciples!"

Ash Crimson

Athena: "I didn't see it before, but I see it now... You are carrying some kind of determination in your heart."
Ash: "So what if I am? I'm not asking to be understood by any of you."
Athena: "But, it's so sad! Surely you need someone you can confide in..."
Ash: "Enough with the talking, mademoiselle ♪ I don't have all day."

Benimaru Nikaido

Athena: "Benimaru! I'm telling you right now that if you dare to go easy on me, I'll get really, really, really angry!"
Benimaru: "If I take this seriously I won't feel good about myself, and if I don't, you will hate me... Do you see all the dilemmas I have to face in my everyday life!?"
Athena: "Oh, poor baby! Now stop screwing around and fight me, already!"
Benimaru: "As you wish. I can see that you're more of a warrior than a little girl anyway."

Billy Kane

Athena: "I hear you have a younger sister... What would she say if she saw you here like this?"
Billy: "Mind your own business! My family is no concern of yours!"

Chin Gentsai

Athena: "It's an honor to be able to fight you again, Master! Please don't hold back!"
Chin: "That's good to hear. Well, maybe you could do me a favor and go a bit easy on me today? Maybe it's my old age, but I've been feeling very tired lately and I don't know if I can keep up..."
Athena: "Don't try to dupe me into letting my guard down! I know all your tricks, Master!"

Clark Still

Athena: "I don't want to get in the way of your mission but... I can't accept defeat here either!"
Clark: "Don't worry about it, I won't ask you to let me win for the sake of my mission, little girl. Field work is expected in my line of work. I'll gain victory and complete my mission by my own hands!"

Duo Lon

Athena: "Poor you! Your heart radiates nothing but sorrow and pain!"
Duo Lon: "If you can really hear the dead crying in agony, then you should do the sensible thing and leave here right now. You're too docile to survive for long..."
Athena: "I still have to fight! For all the people out there who are too weak to defend themselves!"

Elisabeth

Elisabeth: "Such innocent and beautiful eyes... You look far too nice to continue fighting."
Athena: "Thanks for your compliments and concern! But I'm a warrior, just like you! If I were the type to just give up when facing a tough opponent, I wouldn't have come here in the first place!"
Elisabeth: "I can sense your firm resolve. Very well, then. I, Elisabeth Blanctorche, shall be your opponent today!"

Evil Ash

Athena: "This ominous force... These black flames! You're not Ash, are you?"
Evil Ash: "Who cares!? Just shut up! All your talk about love and peace makes me retch! Jealousy and hatred are so much appropriate for humans!  These are your true dark desires! And our master shall swallow these desires of yours, and use them to come back to life once more!"
Athena: "No... I won't let you! Even if I have to lay down my life, I'll find a way to stop you!"

Goro Daimon

Athena: "Hello, Mr. Daimon! How's Mr. Shingo doing?"
Goro: "Oh, he's getting better. I'll be sure to tell him you asked about him."
Athena: "Thank you! We're about the same age so I was worried about him..."

Herself

Athena 1: "Huh!? Wh-What's this!? Another me!?"
Athena 2: "I-Is this some kind of a set-up? Like a hidden camera show or something?"

Hwa Jai

Hwa Jai: "I can't stand it when little brats like you prance around acting like they know everything about fighting! What on earth could you possibly know? You were still wearing diapers a week ago!"
Athena: "I am younger than you, but I still do believe I know what fighting is about!"

Iori Yagami

Athena: "Iori... Are you still chasing after Kyo even though you've lost your flames?"
Iori: "You again... I'm getting sick of all you talking! Instead of bothering other people, straighten out your own life first!"

Joe Higashi

Joe: "Hey, how've you been, Athena? I'm always rooting for ya when I see you on TV!"
Athena: "Thanks, Joe! I always try my hardest to honor my fans!"
Joe: "Well, sadly, I'm gonna have to disappoint some of those fans today. You see, today is my day to shine!"
Athena: "We'll just see about that, Joe!"

K'

K': "Psh... Another kid, huh? It's so tiresome to have to go easy on kids like you all the time."
Athena: "Are you really that worried about me? I knew you were a good guy after all!"
K': "Wh-What!? Shut your piehole, girl! I've wasted enough time on this conversation already!"

Kim Kaphwan

Athena: "Nice to see you Kim! How's Jhun doing?"
Kim: "I think you misunderstand our relationship. We are not particularly close in any way."
Athena: "Really? I thought you two were best friends."
Kim: "Is that how it appears? I'm sure he would be even more disappointed to hear that than I am. Well, enough about Jhun. Let's begin!"

King

Athena: "I'm usually teamed up with my teacher, so I always kind of envy you, King! It must be so much fun to put together a team with a different group of girls. Just like in school!"
King: "Well, if you'd like, I'd gladly exchange one of my teammates for you!"
Athena: "W-Why, Miss King? Did something happen?"
King: "Well, nothing serious, it's just... Mai and Yuri just can't hold their liquor very well... And you're still a minor so I couldn't possibly ask you to take care of two drunkards, could I?"
Athena: "Oh, I don't mind. I'm used to being around people when they get hammered! Whenever Master gets drunk, he goes out and fights pandas!"
King: "R-Really!? Is that what your teacher does when he gets drunk?"
Athena: "Oh yeah, it happens all the time! Grandma always gets really angry with him though!:
King: "Wow... Alcohol is the great equalizer, huh?"

Kula Diamond

Athena: "What are K' and Maxima thinking!? Don't they care about anyone but themselves?"
Kula: "What are you so upset about, miss? Did K' do something mean to you?"
Athena: "Not to me, to you! Always putting you into these dangerous situations! I don't care how strong you are, you're still just a kid! Those men are so inconsiderate!"
Kula: "Huh? I'm not a kid anymore, you know? That boy with the big hat is much younger than me!"
Athena: "This isn't about Bao, it's about you! I'm going to tell those guys not to put you in jeopardy and I'll make sure they listen!"

Kyo Kusanagi

Kyo: "Wow, I don't know what to say... Is this one of your strategies?"
Athena: "Huh? Strategies? What are you talking about?"
Kyo: "I mean, this is just a PR stunt, right? No one your age wears a sailor uniform anymore."
Athena: "Th-That's not a PR stunt! It's a return to my origin! It's a throwback!"
Kyo: "A throwback? I wouldn't wear a school uniform anymore if my life depended on it."
Athena: "J-Just shut up about it already, or you'll get me really angry! Let's get this over with!"

Leona Heidern

Athena: "U-Umm... Leona? Are you feeling okay?"
Leona: "I'm fine... Why do you ask...?"
Athena: "...I can't just say that she looks even moodier than usual, can I?"
Leona: "Do you have a problem with me looking moody?"
Athena: "Eek! Did I just say that out loud!?"
Leona: "Don't worry about thinking that I look moody. I certainly don't mind."
Athena: "S-Somehow, your indifference only makes me feel worse..."

Mai Shiranui

Mai: "A sailor uniform... That takes me back... I remember the days when I was a schoolgirl and I... ...Wait, you're making me sound like I'm an old hag here! How dare you?! I'll show you! I've got plenty of good years left!"
Athena: "W-Wait Mai, I didn't say anything..."

Mature

Athena: "You people again! No matter how many times you keep coming back, I will put an end to your evil plans!"
Mature: "Pretending to be the defender of peace... It makes my hair stand on end! This planet doesn't need you or any of mankind. It needs Orochi! That is why we shall appear again and again! The planet itself is keeping us alive!"
Athena: "Even if that's true, I still can't let you destroy mankind! I firmly believe in humanity's possibilities!"
Mature: "You will be savagely disappointed. But perhaps that's just what a naive girl like you needs... You need a lesson in the cruelty of this world!"

Maxima

Maxima: "You're wearing something new every time I see you. Do you know what a pain it is to be constantly updating your images in my database?"</span>
Athena: "Huh!? Why are you even concerned about keeping track of stuff like that, Maxima!?"
Maxima: "I-It's nothing like that! I'm only interested in your strength, but you tend to fight differently depending on your outfit. That's it!"

Mr. Karate

Athena: "That aura... Are you Mr. Sakazaki? But... Wh-What happened to you!?"
Mr. Karate: "Begone, girl... If the very thought of me scares you, then you will not last long against me."
Athena: "But I have to do this! I may be inexperienced, but I'm still a warrior!"

NESTS Kyo

Athena: "You shouldn't wear yourself out like that all the time, Kyo. Everyone's worried about you!"
Kyo: "Well then, you can tell everyone not to... Wait a minute. Yuki didn't ask you to come here, did she?"

Raiden

Raiden: "Hey now, what kind of a handicap match is this!? This is gonna be too one-sided to be any fun!"
Athena: "Isn't it a pro's duty to put on a great fight no matter who you're fighting? That's what I always do when I get on the stage! After all, there are some people in the audience that may never get to see me again!"
Raiden: "Gah ha ha! Well you've got me beaten in that round, missy! You're absolutely right! Time to get serious! Let's put on a show to remember!"

Ralf Jones

Ralf: "Hmm... I wonder why our girlie can't be a little bit more like you."
Athena: "Um, Ralf, are you talking about Leona?"
Ralf: "Yeah. Do you... Do you think you could tell me why she has to be like that all the time?"
Athena: "U-Uhhh, I, uh, I guess I have a vague idea... Are you sure you want to hear it?"
Ralf: "Yeah, go for it! Maybe it'll be a shock, but it can only help the situation in the long run, right?"
Athena: "Well, okay... I think the biggest reason she's that way is because of the people around her..."
Ralf: "What!? Are you saying Clark and the Commander are to blame!?"
Athena: "Hey! You left yourself out! You're the biggest problem of the bunch!"

Robert Garcia

Robert: "So you're my next opponent, huh, Athena? Fighting you just doesn't feel right, though..."
Athena: "Huh? It doesn't feel right? What's that supposed to mean!?"
Robert: "It's just that you have some very, er, enthusiastic fans, and they scare the living daylights out of me."
Athena: "I see... I can't help you with that. You're going to have to talk to Jhun yourself..."
Robert: "Haha! I didn't even have to mention him by name and you knew who it was. Well, even with your one-man insane fan club, I'm still going all out!"
Athena: "I wouldn't have it any other way! We'll settle this fair and square!"

Ryo Sakazaki

Ryo: "Don't you think you're relying on your psychic powers too much? It seems like you're neglecting your physical training. Once the chips are down, all you can truly rely on are your own arms and legs!"
Athena: "Those, and my mind! My Master has taught me how to wield my mind as a weapon well!"
Ryo: "I see... It seems I've said too much then. Let's see what you're capable of!"

Saiki

Athena: "Your evil plan ends here! I will stop you!"
Saiki: "Psycho Powers, eh? You seem to be closer to us than to human beings..."
Athena: "What's that supposed to mean!? I'm nothing like you!"
Saiki: "Hm? Do you not understand? Or are you just playing dumb? Either way, you will still find out how narrow-minded humans really are! Killing you off before you've experienced total despair is merciful, is it not?"

Shen Woo

Shen: "I promise not to hit you in the face. Your fans would probably never let me hear the end of it if I did."
Athena: "I appreciate your kindness, but that will not be necessary! I may be an idol, but I'm a Psycho Soldier first!"
Shen: "Great! You're definitely one of the old man's pupils. Out of respect, I won't go easy on you!"

Sie Kensou

Kensou: "U-Uh, Athena, I, uh... I luh-huh, uh... lo-lo..."
Athena: "I understand, Kensou! L-Let's go! Don't think I'll go easy on you this time!"
Kensou: "What? No, that's not what I was trying to say! Just hang on a second, Athena! I looooo-"
Athena: "I-I can't hear you! Look, let's just get this fight started already!"

Takuma Sakazaki

Takuma: "I have never once underestimated the power of Kung Fu since my fight with Lee Gakusuo. I will give it 100% whether my opponent is a fearsome Kung Fu master or a young girl such as yourself!"
Athena: "Thank you! It means a lot to me that you acknowledge me as a true martial artist! Now let us fight and hold nothing back!"

Terry Bogard

Terry: "I know how to please the crowd pretty good, but you've got me totally beat in that category!"
Athena: "D-Don't be silly! Your performance always gets the fans fired up!"
Terry: "I'm glad to hear that coming from you! Well then, let's have a fight that'll keep people buzzin' for years!"
Athena: "Absolutely! My fans around the globe are counting on it!"

Vice

Vice: "Long time no see, Idol Girl! How've you been?"
Athena: "You're from the Orochi Clan, aren't you? You're still alive!?"
Vice: "Never mind that. Let me hear you scream in perfect pitch once again!"

Yuri Sakazaki

Yuri: "Hnnnn... HA! Heeya! No, that's not right..."
Athena: "Umm... Yuri? What are you doing?"
Yuri: "I'm developing Psycho Powers, obviously! I thought I could learn a thing or two from you..."
Athena: "If it was really that easy to develop my powers, then what would that say about all the work that Kensou had put in?"
Yuri: "Ugh! I just can't get that Psycho Ball to come out! You're just going to have to show me! Come on, Athena! It's time to fight. I'll be studying your moves so I can use them after this fight!"
Athena: "Hey! It's really not that easy, you know...?"

Pre-Battle Dialogues (Rising Star Games Translation)Edit

  • Andy Bogard
    Andy: "I can't go easy on anyone, no matter who! That's the right thing to do as a martial artist!"
    Athena: "Of course! Let's both do our best!"
    Andy: "I can sense your unyielding spirit! I can see why Master Chin chose you as one of his disciples!"
    Ash Crimson
    Athena: "I didn't see it before, but I see it now... You are carrying some kind of determination in your heart."
    Ash: "So what if I am? It's not like I'm asking anyone to understand."
    Athena: "But... it's so sad! Surely you need someone you can confide in..."
    Ash: "Enough with the talking, mademoiselle ♪ I don't have all day."
    Benimaru Nikaido
    Athena: "Benimaru! Let me tell you right now that if you dare to go easy on me, I'll get really really angry!"
    Benimaru: "If I get serious I won't feel good about myself, and if I don't, you will hate me... Do you see what kind of dilemmas I have to deal with in my life!?"
    Athena: "My heart bleeds! Now just fight already and make sure it counts!"
    Benimaru: "Oh, alright. I can see that you're more of a warrior than a little girl anyway."
    Billy Kane
    Athena: "I hear you have a younger sister... What would she say if she saw you here like this?"
    Billy: "Mind your own business! My family is no concern of yours!"
    Chin Gentsai
    Athena: "It's an honor to get to fight you again, Master! Please don't hold back!"
    Chin: "That's good to hear. Maybe you could do me a favor by going a bit easy on me, today? Maybe it's because I'm getting older, but I've been feeling very tired lately and I don't know if I can keep up..."
    Athena: "Don't try to fool me into a false sense of security! I know how your mind works, Master!"
    Clark Still
    Athena: "I don't want to get in the way of your mission but... I can't afford to lose either!"
    Clark: "Don't worry about it I won't tell you to let me win for the sake of my mission, little girl. Field work is an intrinsic part of my mission. I'll gain victory by my own hands!"
    Duo Lon
    Athena: "Poor you! Your heart radiates nothing but deep sorrow and pain!"
    Duo Lon: "If you can really hear the cries of agony of the dead, then you should get out of here right now. You're too docile to survive for long..."
    Athena: "I still have to fight! For all the people who are too weak to defend themselves!"
    Elisabeth
    Elisabeth: "Those innocent and beautiful eyes... You look far too nice to keep on fighting."
    Athena: "Thanks for your concern! But I'm also a warrior, just like you! If I were the kind of person to just move aside when told to, I wouldn't be here in the first place!"
    Elisabeth: "I can see that you mean business. Very well, I will be your opponent for today!"
    Evil Ash
    Athena: "This ominous force... These black flames! You're not Ash, are you?"
    Evil Ash: "Who cares!? Just shut up already! All your talk about love and peace makes me sick! Jealousy and hatred are so much more appropriate for humans!  These are the true dark desires! And our master shall swallow these desires of yours, and use them to come back to life once more!"
    Athena: "No... I won't let you! Even if I have to give up my life for it!"
    Goro Daimon
    Athena: "Hello, Mister Daimon! How's Master Shingo doing nowadays?"
    Goro: "Oh, he's getting better. I'll tell him you asked about him."
    Athena: "Thank you! We're about the same age so I was getting a bit worried..."
    Herself
    Athena 1: "Huh!? Wh-what's this!? There's another me!?"
    Athena 2: "I-Is this some kind of a set-up? Like a hidden camera show? Or something?"
    Hwa Jai
    Hwa Jai: "I can't stand it when little brats like you go around acting as if they know everything about fighting! Get real! What on earth could you possibly know? You were still wearing diapers a week ago!"
    Athena: "Maybe I am still a kid. But I do believe I know what fighting is about!"
    Iori Yagami
    Athena: "Mister Iori... Are you still after Kyo even after losing your flames?"
    Iori: "You again... I'm getting to sick of all your talk! Instead of bothering other people you should try to get your own act straight!"
    Joe Higashi
    Joe: "Hey, how've you been, Athena? I'm always rooting for ya when I see you on TV!"
    Athena: "Thanks, Joe! I aim to please!"
    Joe: "I'm sorry to tell you you shouldn't be here though. Today is my day to shine!"
    Athena: "We'll see about that! I have my fans to think of too!"
    Kim Kaphwan
    Athena "Nice to see you, Kim! How's Jhun doing?"
    Kim "...I think you misunderstood. He and I are not particularly close in any way."
    Athena "Really? I thought you two were best buddies?"
    Kim "Is that what it looks like? I'm sure he would be even more disappointed to hear that than I am. Well, enough about Jhun. Let's begin!"
    K'
    K': "Psh... Another kid, huh? It's so tiresome to have to go easy on kids like you all the time."
    Athena: "Are you really that worried about me? I knew you were a good guy after all!"
    K': "Shut your piehole, girl! I've wasted enough time on this conversation already!"
    King
    Athena: "I'm usually teamed up with my teacher, so I always kind of envy you, Miss King! It must be so much fun to form a team of girls. Just like in school!"
    King: "Well, if you're okay with it, I'd gladly exchange one of my team members for you!"
    Athena: "Huh? W-why, Miss King? Did something happen?"
    King: "Well, nothing serious, but... Mai and Yuri just can't take their liquor very well... And you're still a minor so I couldn't possibly ask you to take care of two drunkards, could I?"
    Athena: "Oh, I don't mind when people get loaded! Master always fights pandas while drunk!"
    King: "What!? Is that what your teacher does when he gets drunk?"
    Athena: "Oh sure, it happens all the time! Grandma always gets really angry with him whenever he does!"
    King: "Wow... I guess alcohol really is the cause of and solution to all of life's problems..."
    Kula Diamond
    Athena: "What are K' and Maxima thinking!? Don't they care about anyone but themselves?"
    Kula: "What are you so upset about, miss? Did K' do something mean to you?"
    Athena: "Not to me, to you! Always putting you into dangerous situations like this! I don't care how strong you are, you're still just a kid! Those dimwits just don't seem to understand!"
    Kula: "Huh? I'm not a kid anymore, you know? That boy with the big hat is much younger than I am!"
    Athena: "This isn't about him, it's about you! You leave Bao out of this! Anyway, I'm going to tell those guys not to let you get involved anymore in a way the're sure to remember!"
    Kyo Kusanagi
    Kyo: "Wow, I don't know what to say... Is this one of your strategies?"
    Athena: "Huh? Strategies? What do you mean?
    Kyo: "I mean, this is just a promotional activity, right? No one wears sailor uniforms at your age anymore."
    Athena: "N-no! This is... It's a return to origin! You know, my roots!?"
    Kyo: "You'd call that 'roots'? I wouldn't wear a school uniform anymore if my life depended on it."
    Athena: "J-just stop talking or I'll get really angry! Let's fight already!"
    Leona Heidern
    Athena: "U-ummm... Leona? Are you feeling okay?"
    Leona: "I'm fine... Why do you ask?"
    Athena: "...I can't tell her she looks even moodier than usual, can I?"
    Leona: "Do you have a problem with me looking moody?"
    Athena: "Eek! You heard what I said just now!?"
    Leona: "Don't worry about it. I certainly don't."
    Athena: "Your indifference only makes me feel worse somehow..."
    Mai Shiranui
    Mai: "A sailor uniform... That takes me back... I remember when I was a school girl and I... Wait, you're making me sound like an old hag here! Stop that!"
    Athena: "B-but, Mai, I didn't even say anything..."
    Mature
    Athena: "You people again! No matter how many times you keep coming back, I will stop your plans!"
    Mature: "Pretending to be the defender of peace... It makes my hair stand on end! This planet doesn't need you or mankind. It needs Orochi! That's why we shall appear again and again! This planet itself is keeping us alive!"
    Athena: "Even so, I still can't afford to lose! I believe in mankind's possibilities!"
    Mature: "You will be betrayed... But perhaps that's just as well. You could stand to learn a bit about the cruelty of this world!"
    Maxima
    Maxima: "You're wearing something new every time I see you. Do you know what a pain it is to keep updating my database?"
    Athena: "Huh!? Are you even keeping track of stuff like that, Maxima!?"
    Maxima: "Of course I'm not. I'm only interested in your strength."
    Mr. Karate
    Athena: "That aura... Are you Mr. Sakazaki? But... Wh-What happened to you!?"
    Mr. Karate: "Begone, girl... If the very thought of me scares you, then you will not last long against me."
    Athena: "But I have to do this! I may be inexperienced, but I'm still a warrior!"
    NESTS Kyo
    Athena: "You shouldn't wear yourself out like that all the time, Kyo. Everyone's worried about you!"
    Kyo: "Well then, you can tell everyone not to... Wait a minute. Yuki didn't ask you to come here, did she?"
    Raiden
    Raiden: "Hey now, what kind of a handicap match is this!? This is gonna be too one-sided to be fun!"
    Athena: "Isn't the job of a pro to deliver a great fight no matter who you're fighting? That's what I always do when I get on the stage! After all, I probably won't ever see anyone from the audience twice!"
    Raiden: "Gahaha! You've already won one round, missy! You're absolutely right! Time to get serious! Let's make this a fight to remember!"
    Ralf Jones
    Ralf: "Hmm... I wonder why our little princess can't be a bit more like you."
    Athena: "Uh, Mister Ralf, are you talking about Leona?"
    Ralf: "Yeah, I am. Do you... Do you think you could tell me why she has to be like that?"
    Athena: "U-uhhh, I, uh, I guess I have a vague idea... Are you sure you want to hear it?"
    Ralf: "Yeah, tell me anything! It might come as a shock but it will only serve to improve matters!"
    Athena: "Well, okay... I think it's because of the people around her..."
    Ralf: "What!? Are you saying... Clark and the Commander are to blame!?"
    Athena: "Hey! You left yourself out! You're the biggest problem of the bunch!"
    Robert Garcia
    Robert: "So you're my next opponent, huh, Athena? It doesn't really feel right to fight you..."
    Athena: "Huh? It doesn't feel right? What's that supposed to mean!?"
    Robert: "It's just that you have some very enthusiastic fans, and they scare the living daylight out of me."
    Athena: "I... I can't help you with that. You're going to have to take that up with Jhun..."
    Robert: "I thought you'd know who I was talking about! Don't think this means I'm going to go easy on you though!"
    Athena: "I wouldn't want you too, Robert! Let's do this fair and square!"
    Ryo Sakazaki
    Ryo: "Don't you think you're relying on your psychic powers so much that you're neglecting your physical training? In the end, all you will have left to depend on are your own arms and legs!"
    Athena: "Those, and my mind! My Master has taught me how to train my mind as well!"
    Ryo: "I see... It seems I've said too much then. Let's see what you're capable of doing!"
    Saiki
    Athena: "Your plans end here! I will stop you!"
    Saiki: "Psycho Powers, eh? You seem to be closer to us than to human beings..."
    Athena: "What's that supposed to mean!? I'm not anything like you at all!"
    Saiki: "Do you really not understand? Or are you just playing dumb? Either way, you will soon find out how narrow-minded humans really are! To kill you off before you get to experience total despair is, in a sense, mercy, is it not?"
    Shen Woo
    Shen: "I promise I won't hit you in the face. I'd probably never hear the end of it if I did."
    Athena: "I appreciate the thought but that will not be necessary! Before being an idol, I'm actually a Psychic Soldier!"
    Shen: "Great! I can tell you're one of the old man's pupils. As a reward, I won't go easy on you!"
    Sie Kensou
    Kensou: "U-uh, Athena, I, uh... I l-l, l-lo, lo-lo..."
    Athena: "Right, let's go, Kensou! Don't think you'll be let off easy this time!"
    Kensou: "What? No, just listen to me for a moment, Athena! I lo, l-lo, lololo!"
    Athena: "I-I can't hear you! L-let's just go already!"
    Takuma Sakazaki
    Takuma: "I have never once underestimated the power of Kung Fu after my fight with Lee Gakusuo. Even if my opponent is a girl such as yourself. Make no mistake, I won't hold back on you!"
    Athena: "Thank you! It means a lot to me that you acknowledge me as a true martial artist! Now let us fight with no holds barred!"
    Terry Bogard
    Terry: "I know how to please the crowd, but I'm not quite on the same level as you in that regard..."
    Athena: "D-Don't be silly! Your performance is always incredibly stimulating!"
    Terry: "That's good to hear. Then let's start a fight that people will be talking about for the next couple of years!"
    Athena: "Absolutely! I can't let all my fans across the world down!"
    Vice
    Vice: "Long time no see, Idol girl! How've you been?"
    Athena: "You're from the Orochi Clan, aren't you? You're still alive!?"
    Vice: "Never mind about that. Let me once more hear those exquisite cries of pain of yours!"
    Yuri Sakazaki
    Yuri: "Hnnnn... HA! Heeya! No, that's not right..."
    Athena: "Umm... Yuri? What are you doing?"
    Yuri: "I'm practicing Psycho Powers, obviously! I was thinking I could learn a thing or two from you..."
    Athena: "If it was really that easy then what would all of Kensou's efforts have been for...?"
    Yuri: "Ugh! I just can't get that Psycho Ball to come out! You're just going to have to show me! In other words, let's fight, Athena! I'll be using this opportunity to learn your moves!"
    Athena: "It's really not that easy, you know...?"
