"He's ... He's still alive he's still ..." Yuko faced the DEMON, wide eyed, still clutching his laser sword.
"You cannot defeat him," Lairus laughed. "Creatures from my dark ALTAR are too powerful, muahaha! Meet your FRAIL end, Yuko."

"Beep boop," his robot J-43 piped in, "ABORT mission Yuko. My calculations were accurate, thirty cherry bomb detonations did not annihilate the beast."
"No," Yuko snarled. "NooooooOOOOO!" He wouldn't give up. He grabbed J-43 and opened the hatch behind his head.
"Beep boop, I do not appreciate being probed INTRAcranially."
