Outro with partner
You're far better then I expected. I might just have to dance with you again.
I do so love obedient servants. Devote yourself to me.
Ragna the Bloodedge
Intro Rachel: It's time for your debut, Ragna. Go work up a sweat for the both of us.
Ragna: Pipe down and get off your high horse already.
Outro Rachel: You were sufficient, I suppose... for a mongrel.
Ragna: Yeah, yeah, good for you.
Hakumen
Intro Hakumen: This battlefield is not your playground. Begone, Harlequin!
Rachel: My, my. I don't believe you have the authority to give me orders, Mr. Hero.
Outro Rachel: You acted just as a hero should. Well done.
Hakumen: Silence. I grow tired of this nonsense.
Nine the Phantom
Intro Nine: Didn't you ever learn not to play with fire? Princess Alucard...
Rachel: The suspense is killing me. How much longer until the show begins?
Outro Rachel: I pity our foes...mph. In fact, I can hardly look at them.
Nine: Really? Because I was just getting started.
Es
Intro Rachel: Now child, shall we dance?
Es: Dancing, during combat? Incomprehensible.
Outro Rachel: How mundane. Do you agree?
Es: Mundane? I'm not sure.
Yukiko Amagi
Intro Rachel: It seems we are unwanted guests tonight.
Yukiko: Nothing a little charring couldn't fix, right?
Outro Rachel: A "little charring" was a gross understatement. How I pity them.
Yukiko: I-I thought I was holding back...
Mitsuru Kirijo
Intro Rachel: I do have high hopes for you, Queen of Executions.
Mitsuru: I'm quite fond of that nickname. Let me show you how I earned it.
Outro Mitsuru: Execution... Complete.
Rachel: Impressive. You live up to your reputation.
Linne
Intro Linne: What? Do you expect me to be your partner?
Rachel: Indeed. I believe our dance would be lovely.
Outro Rachel: An unsurprising result.
Linne: Yeah. There's no getting around that skill gap.
Vatista
Intro Vatista: Activation...
Rachel: Oh, have you awakened little doll?
Outro Vatista: I request that you use discretion. A one-sided trampling of the enemy hinders my data collection.
Rachel: Oh, do forgive me. Perhaps I was a little over enthused.
Mika
Intro Mika: Cuties like us are gonna rule the new era!
Rachel: Cutie? I am no such thing.
Outro Mika: Victory! Hmm? Gah!
Rachel: I daresay this is a far cry from "cute."
Ruby Rose
Intro Ruby: Awww, yeah! Here comes Team Rose!
Rachel: Make light of a rose and you may be pricked.
Outro Ruby: Yes! Victory for Team Rose!
Rachel: Do mind the thorns.

Vs. Ragna Your stupidity truly boggles the mind. You belong on the ground, worm. Play
Play
Vs. Jin Oh dear, I seem to have ruined your pretty face. I must say, though, I think you look better this way. Perhaps you should keep it like this. Play
Play
Vs. Noel You felt like you were lacking something, so you wanted to be loved by others... You've been waiting for someone to take care of you... How pathetic. Play
Play
Vs. Rachel What a disgrace... Play
Play
Vs. Taokaka What an energetic child. Nago! Stop that! You should be ashamed of yourself. Play
Play
Vs. Tager That is quite a body you've built, but I believe only thirty percent of it is truly necessary. Are you perhaps... compensating? Play
Play
Vs. Litchi You seem rather confident of that body of yours. Play
Play
Vs. Arakune How filthy... Play
Play
Vs. Bang You have defiled me with your... your sweat! You dirty, inhuman beast! Play
Play
Vs. Carl If you really cherish that doll of yours, perhaps you should only play with her at home. It would be such a terrible shame if something bad were to happen to her... Play
Play
Vs. Hakumen How does it feel to be a hero? I must admit, I've always wanted to ask you that. Play
Play
Vs. Nu-13 I grow tired of your face... Relying on your other half has only weakened you. Play

Vs. Ragna Are you an idiot? However... if you will agree to spend the rest of your life as my slave, I may forgive you. Play
Play
Vs. Jin You are a very interesting person, although I confess I cannot help but find you somewhat... amusing as well. Play
Play
Vs. Noel You've slept in your cradle for long enough. It's time to wake up. Play
Play
Vs. Rachel If you must imitate me, you could at least have the common courtesy to do it well! Play
Play
Vs. Taokaka *Yawn* It seems you are still full of vim and vigor, but I am already quite tired. Gii, go entertain her in my stead. Play
Play
Vs. Tager ...I doubt I shall ever be able to fathom Kokonoe's taste in men. Play
Play
Vs. Litchi I suggest you return to your home before this situation exceeds your limited ability to control it... girl. Play
Play
Vs. Arakune Disgusting. Play
Play
Vs. Bang I do so wish there was a limit to how much a man could sweat... And please, -please- could we use our inside voices? Play
Play
Vs. Carl It won't be your turn until much later.... Can you be a good boy until then? Play
Play
Vs. Hakumen Your existence in this world is an ever more tenuous thing... I believe I shall observe you a little longer, Mr. Hero. I think I shall like that very much. Play
Play
Vs. Lambda-11 You poor creature... Karma can be a cruel thing. Play
Play
Vs. Tsubaki Your self-sacrifice and determination... So lovely... So pathetic. Play
Play
Vs. Hazama I should very much like to grind you under my heel just now... Yes, I think I shall. Play
Play
Vs. Mu-12 The unfortunate child of cruel fate... You have earned your rest. Play
Play
Vs. Makoto You seem... less than focused. Play
Play
Vs. Valkenhayn My goodness Valkenhayn. You must be out of practice... He he he. Although I imagine I am the only person capable of telling you so. Play
Play
Vs. Platinum Ah, so you must be the one the rumors speak of. Unfortunately, I believe your cue is long past. ...Perhaps you are having trouble waking up? Play
Play
Vs. Relius You dare to accuse me of undue intervention--you, of all people?! Play

Situation Line Voice
Vs. Ragna It would seem I am now victorious. Now, bow that pretty little face of yours down into the dirt and scream to the world, "I am Master Rachel's humble little man-servant." Hehehe. Play
Play
Vs. Jin I think it is not quite time for you to fall asleep, Mr. Hero. Play
Play
Vs. Noel What's the matter, Successor to the Azure? Don't tell me you're planning to run away... again? Play
Play
Vs. Rachel Hehehe... Now, I wonder which timeline you've come from? Play
Play
Vs. Taokaka Hmm, is it already time for tea? Nago, Gii, stop playing with that creature and get over here. Play
Play
Vs. Tager Being big is about all you can do, isn't it? Play
Play
Vs. Litchi Know your place. Play
Play
Vs. Arakune Filth. Play
Play
Vs. Bang I cannot even begin to describe how uncivilized you make the human race seem. Please, if you must ever talk to me, stay at least one hierarchical city away. Play
Play
Vs. Carl Little puppeteer boy... I do hope you realize you have a role in the bigger picture. At the very least, try to understand what that might be. Play
Play
Vs. Hakumen Mr. Hero... Is THAT the extent of your conviction? Play
Play
Vs. Nu-13 While I admire your tenacity, you simply do not belong in this world. Return to your realm. Play
Play
Vs. Tsubaki Your time with the Izayoi has expired. Why don't you run along home and play family? Play
Play
Vs. Hazama ...Your face only serves to irritate me. Play
Play
Vs. Mu-12 Noel. I suggest you learn how to wield that power of yours. Play
Play
Vs. Makoto Such classy attire you've chosen to wear to the battlefield. Though I truly feel sorry for you... as your only talent seems to be showing your skin. Play
Play
Vs. Valkenhayn It's almost my tea time, and I'm in a rather good mood today. Bring me my special leaves. Play
Play
Vs. Platinum You have your own role in this world. I ask that you please fulfill it. Play
Play
Vs. Relius Have you not yet realized that you are an unwanted guest? Play
Play
Vs. Izayoi Do not forget your promise. Play
Play
Vs. Amane I've never seen anyone dance like you have. It's quite... exotic. Play
Play
Vs. Bullet Are you sure you're able to stomach the truth? It could very well end in tragedy... Play
Play
Vs. Azrael It seems all of your brain has turned to muscle. What a tragedy. Play
Play
Vs. Kagura That was... interesting. Perhaps you might just be able to entertain me. Play
Play
Vs. Terumi Why are you still here...? No matter. I suggest you disappear. Play
Play
Vs. Kokonoe Pathetic... But I am impressed by your tenacity. Play
Play
Vs. Celica You are perfect just as you are. Now come here, child. It is past time we took tea together. Play
Play
Vs. Lambda-11 I've given you an opportunity, but you must choose your path. Play

段位が上がったようね。まぁ当然だけれど。 Play
Not bad, I'll say... but still, you're only human.
なかなかやるじゃない。
でも、この程度ならただの人間ってとこかしら。
Play
I wasn't expecting you to be this good... I believe you deserve a reward. Join me for a cup of tea, won't you?
貴方がここまでとは思わなかったわ。
ご褒美に、後でお茶をごちそうしてあげましょう。
Play
Vs. Ragna (Act 1/2) Why don't you use your brain for once... why do you suppose you're in the Embryo? You weren't even one of the chosen. In there, lies the key...
考えなさい。資格者でない貴方が何故この『エンブリオ』にいるのか。
それが、全ての鍵よ。
Play
Vs. Ragna (Act 3) Looks like someone's wearing a fresh attitude today. Go, Ragna... the choice is yours and yours alone...
随分とマシな顔になったわね。
なら、行きなさい。選択するのは貴方よ……ラグナ。
Play
Vs. Jin (Act 1/2) You don't stand a chance against Ragna in your current state... Surely you are already aware of this?
今のままではラグナを殺す事は出来ない。
それは貴方も承知のはずよ。
Play
Vs. Jin (Act 3) If you can't defeat me in my current state... you can't change anything, Mr. Hero.
今の私に勝てないようでは、
何も変えられはしないわよ、えいゆうさん。
Play
Vs. Noel Become stronger, Noel... Yes, strong enough to surpass me...
強くおなりなさい、ノエル。そう、私を超える程にね……。 Play

悪い冗談ね……全く笑えないわ。 Play
Vs. Taokaka Tao, don't follow the foul scent.
タオ、嫌な臭いの方へ行っては駄目よ。 Play
Vs. Tager I was expecting much more from you, given your... appearance.
図体の割に情けないのね。 Play
Vs. Litchi Too much self-indulgence will not end well for you. Don't you think, my dear?
あまり我儘が過ぎると、痛い目を見るわよ。ねぇ、お嬢さん? Play
Vs. Arakune Despicable... Don't ever show yourself again.
最悪ね。私の視界に二度と入らないでもらえるかしら。 Play
Vs. Bang Would you mind staying quiet for a little while...?
少しの間、静かにしてて頂戴。 Play
Vs. Carl (Act 1/2) I suggest you take good care of that little doll.
そのお人形……精々大切にすることね。 Play
Vs. Carl (Act 3) This presence... I believe you also have the potential to turn into a monster.
この気配……やはり貴方も、怪物になる可能性を秘めているのね。 Play
Vs. Hakumen I realize how foolish this may look... but I've made up my mind. I'm going to fight it until the bitter end...
ええ、自分でも愚かしいと痛感しているわ……
けれども、私は決めたの。醜くも最期まで足掻くと。
Play
Vs. Nu-13 The Murakumo Unit…
For whom do you intend to wield that incomplete power?
ムラクモユニット……。
その不完全な力を、貴女は誰のために振るうのかしら?
Play
Vs. Tsubaki (Act 1/2) Anyone can follow orders... I suggest you think hard about what it is you actually want.
命令に従うだけなら家畜にもできるわ。
貴女に本当に必要なものは何か、思い出しなさい。
Play
Vs. Tsubaki (Act 3) This still won't do... I need you to become stronger... much stronger. I suggest you continue to train.
まだまだね……貴女には、強くなってもらわなければならない。
精々励むといいわ。
Play
Vs. Hazama I was about to say, I have no interest in the vessel... but you're hiding something. Aren't you?
器に興味は無い……と言いたいところだけれど、
貴方、何か隠していないかしら?
Play
Vs. Mu-12 The power of the Azure that lies within you... don't ever lose sight of it.
貴女の中に在る『蒼』の力……その力だけは、見失わないで。 Play
Vs. Makoto I would hardly call those scraps of cloth you wear "clothes..." It may do you some good to just remove it all together.
そんな中途半端な布切れを纏うくらいなら、
いっそのこと全て脱ぎ去ってみてはいかが?
Play
Vs. Valkenhayn It seems I'm only causing you pain these days, Valkenhayn... I won't ask you to understand me, but please... do not stand in my way.
貴方には心配ばかりかけているわね、ヴァルケンハイン。
解ってとは言わないわ。……止めないで。
Play
Vs. Platinum Now, were you the one who called me a little twerp...?
さて、私をチンチクリンと言ったのはどちらだったのかしら……? Play
Vs. Relius It's time for you to repent for your sins... You can still speak, yes?
さぁ、思う存分懺悔なさい。喉を潰した覚えは無くってよ。 Play
Vs. Izayoi Is the Immortal Breaker just a decoration? You will not achieve anything if you are too afraid to dirty your hands.
『不死身殺し』を遣わなかったのね。
手を汚すことをためらっていては、何も得られないわよ。
Play
Vs. Amane Spectators jeering can ruin the stage, do you not agree...? Observer...
観客の野次は舞台の興を削いでしまう……
そう思わなくて? ねえ、傍観者さん。
Play
Vs. Bullet You must accept your defeat... and your inexperience. That is, if you do not want to live with regret.
敗北も未熟も全て受け入れなさい……後悔したくなければね。 Play
Vs. Azrael (Act 1/2) Some dog you are... a mongrel AND a stray. What you lack is discipline. Don't you dare defy humans.
犬は犬でも駄犬の上に野良犬だなんて……。
人様に迷惑をかける犬には、躾が必要ね。
Play
Vs. Azrael (Act 3) Not an ounce of discipline... I would love to see the face of your owner.
躾のなっていない犬を野放しにするなんて、
飼い主の顔を見てみたいものだわ。
Play
Vs. Kagura (Act 1/2) You've become quite a bore... not even worth kneeling before me.
今の貴方は酷く退屈だわ……私の前に跪く価値も無いわね。 Play
Vs. Kagura (Act 3) Now, stand up... or is this the extent of your ideals?
さぁ、立ちなさい。
それとも、貴方の理想はここで終わりなのかしら?
Play
Vs. Terumi Good-bye. I'll enjoy watching you wither away in madness. Now, let me hear you scream.
さようなら。貴方が狂い果てるのを、ここで座って見届けてあげる。
さぁ、最高の悲鳴を聴かせて頂戴。
Play
Vs. Kokonoe Your pursuit of perfection has only made you fragile. The strongest and wisest genes aren't what you'd expect them to be...
完璧を追求し過すぎた故に、貴女は酷く脆い。
『最強』と『最高』の遺伝子も考え物ね……。
Play
Vs. Celica Celica... you should be smiling. Your smile will become the beacon that shines light on someone else's path.
セリカ……貴女は笑っていなさい。
その微笑みが誰かの道を照らす光になるわ。
Play
Vs. Lambda-11 I will not pity you... after all, you chose this path on your own.
哀れとは言わないわ……貴女が自らの意志で選んだ道ですもの。 Play
Vs. Hibiki Ambushing an old woman from behind...? You're quite the beast on the inside, despite your calm demeanor.
淑女を死角から襲うなんて……
澄ました顔をして、実はケダモノだったみたいね。
Play
Vs. Naoto I will not accept it... I will not accept your existence...! Disappear from this world at once!
認めない……貴方の存在なんか私は認めないわ……
今すぐこの世界から消え去りなさい……!
Play
Vs. Nine You have no right to do what you please with the world... I'm more possessive than I might look, you see.
貴女に世界をどうこうする権利は無いわ。
私、これでも独占欲は人一倍強いの。
Play
Vs. Izanami (Act 2) If you love the world of the dead so much... how about I send you there, personally? It'll be the perfect sideshow for my tea party.
そんなにも『死の世界』を望むのならば、勝手に一人でお死になさい。
お茶受け代わりには丁度良い余興だわ。
Play
Vs. Susano'o (Act 3) This is truly going to be your end... Now, disappear from this world, Yuuki Terumi.
これで本当に最期……

...You need to learn to hold back. You hardly left any entertainment for me.
Know your role. You're hardly fit to be part of the opening act.
Is that all? How sad... Do come back once you're stronger.
Might I suggest you stop being so complacent? I imagine it would quite improve your fighting.
It appears we've reached the end of this dance. Would you like a cup of tea? Your performance has earned you a seat at my table.
Partner with Ragna Rachel: I believe it's time for tea... Ragna, would you start the preparations?
Ragna: Yeah, no. Go drink some river water.
レイチェル: さて、そろそろお茶にしましょうか。ラグナ、用意して頂戴。
ラグナ: やかましい。川の水でも飲んでろ。
Partner with Hakumen Hakumen: Only my sword can fulfill my mission. Your presence is no longer needed, Harlequin.
Rachel: How dull you are...You may be a master of the sword, but your behavior is a far cry from chivalry.
Partner with Nine Nine: How about it, Princess? Did you enjoy the fireworks?
Rachel: Frankly, I found myself let down. There's no elegance in a dance that's completely one-sided.
Partner with Es Es: Your movement in combat is plagued by illogical factors. I suggest optimizing your algorithm.
Rachel: Illogical? You hardly understand what you're talking about. I think I may need to teach you how a real lady behaves.
Partner with Yukiko Yukiko: Not that that's over, why don't we have some tea? It would pair wonderfully with this manju.
Rachel: What a delightful suggestion. Nago, prepare the tea posthaste. Hehe... This should be a lovely tea party.
Partner with Mitsuru Mitsuru: From time to time, my victims will request a second execution just after the first. Do these poor sould crave my judgement because they simply cannot judge themselves?
Rachel: Perhaps. They may realize deep down that they need punishment and find themselves unable to act. Or perhaps they are merely perverts.
Partner with Linne Linne: I would have called that "impressive," but I cannot abide by your capriciousness. When you find yourself in the arms of eternity, you should at least have the decency to contain yourself.
Rachel: Oh, I disagree. There must always be a little room for amusement. Boredom is our greatest enemy, is it not?
Partner with Vatista Rachel: An Autonomic Nerve... But whose mind has been placed within you, I wonder?
Vatista: Irreverent. A personality is contrary to the inorganic nature of a doll and would impede my ability it serve my master. All that matters is societal management and preservation.
Partner with Mika Mika: An overwhelming victory! The era has spoken, and the cuties shall conquer!
Rachel: Again, may I suggest you refrain from calling me that...?
Partner with Ruby Ruby: Say, why don't you use an actual weapon? I mean, you're pretty amazing the way you are, but still...
Rachel: There's no need. My grace and dignity more than suffice.
