Battle Arena Quotes
Jade Cocoon: Story of the Tamamayu
Mu has a wide variety of things to say in the arena. All of her dialogue lines ignore the option for disabling speech while fighting there.
|"It seems you are gauging each others moves."||Both players' Minions are using Defend.|
|"Such overwhelming power! The minion has fallen with one fatal blow!"||A Minion is KO'd from full HP, including death by Ad Mumuls.|
|"The minion is gravely wounded."||A Minion is reduced to below 50% HP.|
|"It is breathing heavily, and could keel over at anytime."||A Minion is reduced to below 10% HP.|
|"Is the fight over? It looks like that is it for this minion. It has fallen and cannot get up!"||A Minion is KO'd as a result of two or more attacks.|
|"Poison! The minion looks dizzy."||A Minion is poisoned.|
|"Oh no, it is falling asleep! This could be dangerous. It is like a helpless fish on a chopping block!"||A Minion is put to sleep.|

|"A change of elemental properties! What an exciting move. What will happen now!?"||A Deva-type spell is used.|
|"I cannot take my eyes off this thrilling battle!"||Seemingly random, but happens roughly every 10 turns. The line will play twice if the minion being attacked is using Defend, and it is their turn next.|
|"Oh my, it dodged the blow! No damage taken."||A move misses. This does not include All Enemies being used against Winged posture minions.|
|"The player has switched minions! A new minion has entered the arena!"||A Minion is switched out.|
|"A direct hit! Oh, that had to hurt!"||The attacking Minion scores a critical hit. (Note; Not the attack Critical, that remains untested.)|

|"Another loss! The fight has been decided before the third round. Too bad! I was even rooting for you!"||A 3v3 fight is won in 3 turns.|
Jade Cocoon 2
Mu once again provides commentary for the arena battles, except this time with more to-the-point lines, and slightly less chance of hearing one per action.
