|Cut to the Light Warriors on a cliff near Pravoka. Red Mage is looking through a monocle.|
|Black Mage||So? What do you guys see?|
|Thief||There's only one ship at the docks.|
It bears the mark of the rapscallions of the inner sea.
|Red Mage||I count nine pirates aboard.|
|Fighter||The nine of them vs. the five of us? I like those odds.|
|Black Mage||Fighter, there's four of us.|
|Fighter||I like those odds.|
|Black Mage||Okay, so there's a bunch of pirates.|
|Bikke and nine pirates are shown.|
|Black Mage||And we're got to get at their big bad pirate captain so we can get that witch her crystal thingie back.|
|Red Mage draws his plan on the sand.|
|Red Mage||Therefore, what we must do is this.|
We shall out flank and beguile them with the brilliant strategy I'm sketching into the sand at this moment.
It'll consist of a multi-pronged attack from all flanks, thus throwing them into a state of confusion and defeat.
It shall be remembered as the "Red Mage Manuever".
|Black Mage||What are you talking about?!|
They're a bunch of dorks on a boat.
I could probably nuke them from here with a well aimed Hadoken.
Those unlucky enough to survive the explosion would drown in the mangled wreckage of their ship.
|Back on Bikke's ship.|
|Bikke||(to Garland) ...So the pirate says, "It's drivin' me nuts!" BWAHAHAHA!|
|Garland doesn't laugh. Bikke draws his sword at Garland again.|
|Bikke||Laugh, damn ye! Don't ye know hilarity when ye sees it? Yar.|
|Garland||"Ha". "Ha ha".|
- The title of the comic refers to the Village People, a disco group from the late 1970's.
- In the original Final Fantasy, the Light Warriors indeed have to fight nine pirates at Pravoka.
