- Hiya! I'm VIOLET. VIOLET the FLOWER!
- Gosh, you're a human, aren't you? Wow! Don't see many of those down here. Welcome to the UNDERGROUND!
- Although... I hate to tell you this, but humans don't normally last too long down here.
- This place is full of horrible monsters, all willing to KILL humans on sight... I'm getting shivers just thinking about it!
- Why, you'll be torn to shreds without someone to help guide you! So... How about I lend you a hand? I'll give you a little tutorial!
- Ready? Here goes!
- See that little heart? That's your SOUL. It's everything that makes you you!
- It's also really powerful. And sadly... that human SOUL is real valuable to the monsters.
- They'll do ANYTHING to get their claws on one, even if they have to tear it right out of your body!
- Don't worry, though! I'm not one of the bad guys or anything. In fact, your SOUL can get stronger by gaining LV!
- Huh? Oh, LV? It stands for LOVE! The more LOVE you have, the harder it'll be for monsters to claim your SOUL! Isn't that helpful?
- Now, see these? These are bullets. These are what monsters will use to attack your SOUL until they can steal it!
- If your SOUL gets too weak, you'll die. So make sure not to do that!
- Now, let's practise! Try dodging these bullets.
- (If avoided)
- Good work! See, you're a natural! Those monsters won't know what hit 'em.
- (If hit)
- Oopsie-daisy! Hm, that didn't go quite as expected. And that was a really easy attack to dodge too... if you couldn't dodge THAT, then you'll NEVER survive out there.
- ...Uh oh. Do you hear that?
- Someone's coming. Be careful, okay? I'll meet up with you later. And remember: they all want your SOUL. Don't believe ANYTHING they say.
- (Violet disappears)
- HELLO? IS ANYBODY THERE?
- OH MY!! WHAT A SURPRISE! A FALLEN HUMAN! I HAVEN'T SEEN ONE OF THOSE IN AGES!
- OH, BUT WHERE ARE MY MANNERS? HELLO, DARLING! I AM METTATON. I AM THE BENEVOLENT OVERSEER OF THESE RUINS, NOT TO MENTION A GLAMOUROUS CELEBRITY!
- WHY, YOU LOOK POSITIVELY STARSTRUCK! ALTHOUGH, WHO COULD BLAME YOU, WHEN EXPOSED TO MY RADIANCE FOR THE FIRST TIME?
- WELL, TODAY'S YOUR LUCKY DAY, GORGEOUS! COME WITH ME, I'LL LEAD YOU THROUGH THE CATACOMBS! NOT MANY GET AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE SO CLOSE TO MY BRILLIANCE- THIS IS THE CHANCE OF A LIFETIME!
- COME, THIS WAY!
- The sight of these fancied-up ruins fills you with determination.
- LISTEN UP, DARLING! I'M NOT ONLY HANDSOME AND IMMACULATELY KIND, BUT ALSO A GREAT TEACHER! LESSON ONE: THESE RUINS... ARE FILLED WITH PUZZLES! A SHOCKING TWIST, I KNOW.
- BUT HAVE NO FEAR! METTATON, YOUR BEAUTIFUL NEW FRIEND, SHALL HELP YOU SOLVE THIS FIRST PUZZLE!
- THERE! WASN'T THAT SIMPLE? REMEMBER TO TAKE NOTES! AFTER ALL, I WON'T BE AROUND TO SOLVE EVERY PUZZLE IN YOUR WAY!
- HERE'S A CHANCE TO TRY A PUZZLE OUT FOR YOURSELF! IT'S VERY EASY. JUST ANSWER THAT QUIZ QUESTION ON THE WALL!
- [It's a glowing neon sign. "Question 1: Who is the most talented monster in the Underground?" There's only one button, labeled Mettaton.]
- CORRECT! WHAT A REMARKABLE ANSWER!! AND NOW, THE SPIKES CAN BE PASSED!
- OH NO! THAT FIRST ONE MAY HAVE BEEN A CINCH, DEAR, BUT THE NUMBER OF POTENTIAL OPTIONS HAS DOUBLED! THE HORROR! THE TENSION! GOOD LUCK, DARLING!
- [It's a glowing neon sign. "Question 2: How handsome is Mettaton?" [Very Handsome] [Extremely Handsome]]
- HMM! WELL, PERSONALLY, I WOULD HAVE GONE WITH "THE EPITOME OF HANDSOMENESS"... BUT YOUR ANSWER IS ACCEPTABLE AS WELL! NOW, FOLLOW ME!
- I'M A BIG FAN OF HUMANS, SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ME HURTING YOU. HOWEVER, MANY MONSTERS MAY DECIDE TO PICK A FIGHT WITH YOU!
- WORRY NOT, THOUGH! ALL YOU HAVE TO DO WHEN FACED WITH A MONSTER... IS START TALKING ABOUT YOURS TRULY! ONCE THEY REALIZE YOU HAVE MY FAVOUR, THEY'RE SURE TO LET YOU BE!
- NORMALLY I'D LET YOU PRACTISE TALKING WITH A TRAINING DUMMY! HOWEVER, I LENT OUT MY LAST ONE TO ONE OF MY MANY LOYAL FANS. I'M NOTHING IF NOT GENEROUS!
- SORRY, DARLING, BUT I'M SURE YOU'LL BE FINE! AFTER ALL, TALKING ABOUT MY POSITIVE QUALITIES SHOULD BE THE EASIEST THING IN THE WORLD!
- (Mettaton exits, Violet reappears)
- See? What'd I tell you? He was planning on sending you out into the Ruins with NO combat experience. You would've stood no chance. And TALKING to monsters? Please. He clearly WANTED you to get eviscerated.
- Thankfully, your good friend Violet's here to help!
