Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion (コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ Kōdo Giasu: Hangyaku no Rurūshu?), often referred to as simply Code Geass, is a Japanese anime series created by Sunrise, directed by Gorō Taniguchi, and written by Ichirō Ōkouchi, with original character designs by Clamp.

"Code Geass" first ran in Japan on MBS from October 5, 2006,[1] to July 28, 2007.[2] Its sequel series, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 (コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュR2 Kōdo Giasu Hangyaku no Rurūshu Āru Tsū?), ran on MBS and TBS from April 6, 2008 to September 28, 2008.[3][4] Both seasons have won several awards at the Tokyo International Anime Fair,[5] Animage Anime Grand Prix, and Animation Kobe event.[6]

Contents

Plot

The series is set after Japan's conquest by the Holy Britannian Empire on August 10, 2010, a.t.b. with their powerful new robot weapons, the Knightmare Frames, stripping Japan and its citizens of all rights and freedoms and renaming the country Area 11. The titular Lelouch is a Britannian prince who was disowned by his father, Emperor Charles Vi Britannia, after his mother was murdered, and has vowed to kill his father, the Emperor, and destroy Britannia. He gains an ability through the mysterious power of the Geass, becoming the leader of the resistance movement to fulfill his two wishes: to seek revenge for his mother and to construct a world in which his beloved sister Nunnally can live happily.

Setting

Code Geass is set in an alternate universe where three superpowers, the Holy Britannian Empire, the Chinese Federation, and the Euro Universe have divided the world between them (with the exception of an independent Australia) and maintain a tentative balance for the first part of the series. The balance shifts in the second season as the E.U. has much of its territory conquered by Britannia while Lelouch engineers a revolution in the Chinese Federation and creates a new alliance of countries, the United Federation of Nations, reducing the number of superpowers to two.

Holy Britannian Empire

The Holy Britannian Empire (神聖ブリタニア帝国 Shinsei Buritania Teikoku?) is an imperial monarchy and the most prominent superpower within the world of Code Geass, controlling over one-third of the world at the start of the series, based in North America with Pendragon as its capital. Britannian society is an aristocracy run according to a caricature of Social Darwinism, with a hierarchy of competing nobles at the top and the peoples of conquered territories (referred to either by their area number or as "Numbers") living in poverty or as unequal Honorary Britannians.

During season one, the Britannian Empire controls the entire Western Hemisphere (both American continents), New Zealand, and recently conquered Japan, as well as the recently conquered "Area 18"[7] in the Middle East region. During season two, Britannia successfully conquers about half of the rival "Euro Universe" superpower; taking over France, Spain, the western half of Africa, and Russia.[8]

The series' history diverges with Julius Caesar's invasion, when a Celtic "super-king" is elected (similar to the Arverni chieftain Vercingetorix), who successfully resisted the invasion and began the Britannian imperial line of absolute monarchy (referred to in the establishment of the Britannian calendar era, "Ascension Throne Britannia" (a.t.b) or the Imperial Calendar in the English dub, fifty five years earlier than the Gregorian calendar).

Japan

Japan is the source of over 70% of the world's supply of the high energy mineral sakuradite. Britannia conquered it to gain control over that mineral. Japan was renamed Area 11 under Britannian rule. Through his alter-ego, Zero, Lelouch attempts to restore Japan's independence as the "United States of Japan", as a step in his quest to overthrow Britannia.

Chinese Federation

The Chinese Federation (中華連邦 Chūka Renpō?) is an imperial monarchy that spans the Asian and Pacific regions, including Central, South, East, and Southeast Asia, with Sakhalin and the Korean Peninsula and is the most populous (and poverty-stricken) of the three superpowers.

Its political structure and organization appears to resemble the former Empire of China, with the Emperor regarded as a living divinity and holding absolute political power, though under Empress Tianzi, it has been reduced to a figurehead for the advisory "High Eunuchs" (大宦官 Dai Kangan?) (similar to the feudal era Emperors of Japan). The Vermilion Forbidden City (朱禁城 Shu Kinjō?) is the seat of the Chinese Emperor and the government of the Federation is a large palace situated in the capital city of Luoyang.

In the first season, the Chinese Federation attempts unsuccessfully to invade Japan on the pretext of "liberation" using exiled former Japanese officials. The resistance movement in India lends Zero's Black Knights their lead weapons designer, Rakshata, in hopes that an independent Japan will in return aide them in gaining independence from China. In the second season, a Chinese consulate is established with the agreement of the local Britannian authorities and negotiations are held by Eunuch Gao Hai to the end of obtaining a solid Chinese foothold within the colony. After the Black Knights are exiled from Japan, they are granted control of Horai Island (蓬萊島?), a fictional artificial land mass built off the coast of China to generate electricity through tidal activity. The Black Knights destabilize and overthrow the government, returning control to the Empress. Shortly after, the Federation collapses and its former member states are incorporated into the new United Federation of Nations.

Euro Universe

The Euro Universe (ユーロ・ユニバース Yūro Yunibāsu?), or E.U., is a democratic union encompassing all of Europe (including Great Britain), Africa, and Russia and long in conflict with Britannia. In the second season, Schneizel leads the Britannian forces against the E.U., successfully conquering almost half of their territory, including Portugal, Spain, France, half of Africa, and the whole of Russia.[9] Following this, former member nations Italy, Austria, and Poland (among others) join the forty-seven founding nations of the United Federation of Nations, leaving only Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Ukraine, Belarus and an area of Africa near the Congo.

United Federation of Nations

Following the collapse of the E.U. and the uprising in the Chinese Federation, most of the remaining territories not under Britannian control join forces and form the United Federation of Nations, a new coalition to counter the Empire's advance as the sole other superpower. The U.F.N. flag is a white dove with three circles merging at the point where the wings and body meet, over a yellow background.

The U.F.N. is composed of forty-seven countries spread across parts of Central and Eastern Europe, Eastern Africa, and the majority of the Asian continent. Decisions in the U.F.N. are determined by a two-thirds majority vote by the leaders of each country, with the population of each country determining their voting percentage. The individual armies of the member nations are abolished and replaced by a new supranational military force under the Black Knights' control.

Geass

Lelouch using the power of Geass.

Geass (ギアス giasu?), also referred to as the Power of Kings (王の力 Ō no Chikara?), is a mysterious ability which certain people can bestow upon others (the word itself potentially being an intentional corruption of geas or geis, a type of magical contract in Irish mythology). According to an English edition of Newtype, the power of Geass has something to do with the very existence of humankind and it may be used to destroy or transform just about anything.[10] It is represented by a bird-shaped symbol which glows red when active.

A Geass is set as a contract between an immortal and a human who receives a unique power. It manifests in the eyes, and with continued use increases in power, eventually becoming uncontrollable and spreading to both eyes. When a Geass is at full power, a person can then become a recipient of the immortal's "Code", that which grants them their immortality. This new immortal receives the Geass mark somewhere on their body, immunity to Geass, and the ability to make their own contracts with others, while the giver is allowed to die (perpetuating an endless cycle). This process is not necessarily consensual, as C.C. received her Code and V.V. had his taken away against their wills.

Every Geass power has its own unique set of both abilities and limitations (for example, Lelouch's power, the ability to make anyone obey him, can only be used once on a given person), allowing for their defeat or victory by someone who is aware of its characteristics. According to C.C. in the television series, the way geass manifests itself in a person is determined by the person's deepest/truest desire (i.e. C.C.'s geass made everyone love her in response to her desire to be accepted and loved). Further understanding of the power of Geass even leads to the development of a device that can undo its effects. All Geass abilities that have thus far appeared within canon of the television series have been related to the mind, influencing things such as emotion, perception, and memory.

Main characters

Lelouch Lamperouge
The title character and protagonist of the show, Lelouch Lamperouge is a seemingly ordinary 17-year-old student at Ashford Academy. In reality, he is Lelouch vi Britannia, the exiled son of the Emperor of Britannia and the late Empress Marianne, forced to flee to Japan after his mother's assassination. When he gets caught up in a battle between the military and Japanese rebels, he gains the power of Geass, allowing him to force others to obey his orders without question, and begins a quest to utilize this power to destroy Britannia under another identity known as Zero.
Suzaku Kururugi
Lelouch's childhood friend and son of Japan's last prime minister, Genbu Kururugi. Suzaku is in the service of the Britannia Army as a soldier and chosen to test an experimental new model of Knightmare Frame, the Lancelot. Throughout the series, Suzaku shows a belief that achieving results by wrong or illegal methods is meaningless, setting up a rivalry with Zero. Suzaku also became Lelouch's classmate.
C.C.
A mysterious, immortal, green-haired girl who establishes a contract with Lelouch on the condition that he grant her one wish, passively overseeing Lelouch's missions and occasionally helping them succeed to ensure he does not die.
Nunnally Lamperouge
Lelouch's younger sister, who was blinded and crippled during her mother's brutal assassination. Lelouch originally got involved with the war because he wanted to create a pleasant world for Nunnally.
Kallen Stadtfeld
A red haired Britannian-Japanese who believes herself to be a Japanese person at heart and prefers her birth name, Kallen Kouzuki, over that of her father's prestigious family. She maintains the image of a frail, outstanding student at Ashford Academy, all the while being a member of the Japanese resistance movement and is Zero's most devoted follower.

Knightmare Frames

Knightmare Frames are combat mecha, originally developed by the Britannian Empire and imitated by other nations as the series progresses, intended as a replacement for battle tanks and other conventional land, air, and sea warfare vehicles. The name is a play on the word "nightmare" and the Western image of a knight on a horse (mare), with "frame" being the civilian word for bipedal machines in general.

Production

Code Geass began as a concept developed at Sunrise by Ichirō Ōkouchi and Gorō Taniguchi, who proposed it to producer Yoshitaka Kawaguchi while they were working on Overman King Gainer and later Planetes.[11] The initial concept of the plot consisted of a secret organization led by a "hero," which was later developed into a conflict between two people with differing values of morality, belonging to the same military unit.[citation needed]

During these early planning stages, Kawaguchi contacted the noted mangaka group Clamp,[11] the first time Clamp had ever been requested to design the characters of an anime series.[12] Clamp signed onto the project early during these development stages and provided numerous ideas, which helped develop the series' setting and characters.[12]

While developing the character designs for Lelouch Lamperouge, the protagonist of the series, Clamp had initially conceived of his hair color as being white.[12] Ageha Ohkawa, head writer at Clamp, said she had visualized him as being a character to which "everyone" could relate to as being "cool", literally, a "beauty".[12] During these planning stages, Clamp and the Sunrise staff had discussed a number of possible inspirations for the characters, including KinKi Kids and Tackey & Tsubasa.[12] They had wanted to create a "hit show," a series which would appeal to "everyone."[12] Lelouch's alter ego, Zero, was one of the earliest developed characters, with Ōkouchi having wanted a mask to be included as a part of the series, feeling it was necessary for it to be a Sunrise show, and Clamp wanting a unique design never prior seen in any Sunrise series (said mask was nicknamed "tulip" for its distinctive design).[12]

Clamp's finalized original character design art, illustrated by its lead artist Mokona, was subsequently converted into animation character designs for the series by Sunrise's character designer Takahiro Kimura, who had previously spent "every day" analyzing Clamp's art and style from their artbooks and manga series.[12] In working on the animation character designs, he focused on designing them so as to enable the series' other animators to apply them without deviating from Clamp's original art style.[12]

The music for the series was composed by Kōtarō Nakagawa and Hitomi Kuroishi, who had earlier worked with the series' core staff in Planetes and Taniguchi's earlier work Gun X Sword. In addition to the incidental music featured in each episode, Kuroishi also composed numerous insert songs for the series, including "Stories", "Masquerade", "Alone", and "Innocent Days", which were each performed by Kuroishi herself, while "Picaresque" and "Callin'" were performed by the singer-songwriter Mikio Sakai, who had also earlier worked with Nakagawa and Kuroishi in Planetes. The bands FLOW, Ali Project, Jinn, SunSet Swish, Access, and Orange Range have provided songs for the opening and ending themes.[13][14]

When the series was being developed for broadcast on Mainichi Broadcasting System, it had been given the network's Saturday evening prime time slot, which was later changed to a Thursday late night time slot. Due to this change, the overall outlook and some elements of the series were changed and further developed to suit the more mature, late night audience.[11]

Media

Anime

Code Geass officially premiered on the Mainichi Broadcasting System (MBS) television network at 25:25 JST on October 5, 2006. Its satellite television premiere across Japan on Animax was on November 7, 2006.[2][15] Upon the airing of the first 23 episodes, the series went on hiatus on March 29, 2007,[2][16] and completed broadcast of the first series with a contiguous one-hour broadcast of episodes 24 and 25 at 26:25 JST on Saturday, July 28, 2007.[17]

The immense popularity of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion followed with the development of a sequel, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2, which was first announced on the March 2007 issue of Newtype and later confirmed by Sunrise producer Yoshitaka Kawaguchi on the series' official staff blog on March 9, 2007.[18][19]

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 premiered on MBS and TBS at 17:00 JST on April 6, 2008. Prior to the series' television broadcast, three private preview screenings of episode 1 were held on March 15 and March 16 in Osaka and Tokyo respectively, which was attended by the series' seiyū as well as a pool of 3800 randomly selected applicants. On April 15, 2008, at 17:00 JST, the last 6 minutes of the then unaired third episode was accidentally posted onto the Internet due to an error by Bandai Channel, Bandai Namco's online broadcast channel and the series online distributor, in the midst of testing a system preventing illegal online uploads.[20]

Both seasons of Code Geass have been licensed for release in the United States by Bandai Entertainment,[21] and the first season began airing on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block in the U.S. on April 27, 2008; the second began airing on November 2, immediately following the first season, both viewable in English on Adult Swim Video.[22] The series finale premiered on June 7, 2009; ending the second season and the series. In Australia and New Zealand, the series is sub-licensed to Madman Entertainment by Bandai Entertainment USA[23], and began airing on Australian channel ABC2 from January 19, 2009. The first season of Code Geass premiered in the Philippines on November 10, 2008, weekday nights at 7:30pm PST and ended on December 15, 2008 through TV5 while the Season 2 premiered on May 4, 2009 and ended on June 5, 2009 at 6:00pm PST also on TV5.[24]

Reportedly, Bandai Visual shipped over one million DVD and Blu-ray discs related to the Code Geass franchise by November 2008, placing it among the most popular contemporary anime series in both Japan and North America.[25]

Manga

Kadokawa Shoten has published four separate manga adaptations, each containing an alternate storyline.[26] The first three of these manga series have been licensed for an English language release in North America by Bandai Entertainment.[27]

The first, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, by Majiko~! and originally serialized Monthly Asuka, focused on the protagonist of the series, Lelouch Lamperouge, with few differences from the anime's basic storyline other than Knightmare Frames not existing.

The second, Code Geass: Suzaku of the Counterattack (コードギアス 反攻のスザク Kōdo Giasu: Hankō no Suzaku?), written by Atsuro Yomino and serialized in Beans A magazine, focused on Suzaku Kururugi in an alternate reality, where he wears a human-sized enhancement suit provided by Lloyd as Lancelot, a masked government-sponsored superhero, who fights against the criminal organization known as the Black Knights.

Code Geass: Nightmare of Nunnally (コードギアス ナイトメア・オブ・ナナリー Kōdo Giasu Naitomea Obu Nanarī?), serialized in Comp Ace and written by Tomomasa Takuma, focuses on Lelouch's sister, Nunnally.[26] When Lelouch goes missing in the incident at Shinjuku Ghetto, Nunnally encounters an entity called Nemo, which restores her health and grants her the ability to summon the Knightmare Frame Mark Nemo. Using these, Nunnally attempts to seek out the whereabouts of her brother, but arouses the interest of the elite covert-ops Britannian Special Foreign Legion "Irregulars," which seeks to capture or kill her.

A fourth manga adaptation, Code Geass: Tales of an Alternate Shogunate (幕末異聞録 コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ Bakumatsu Ibun Roku Kōdo Giasu Hangyaku no Rurūshu?), was serialized in Kerokero Ace. Set in an alternate 1853, with arrival of Britannia's Black Ships appear in the harbor of Uraga and Lelouch Lamperouge (琉々朱・爛縁侍 Rurushu Ranperuuji?) as the commander of the Shogunate's military counterinsurgence brigade known as the Shinsengumi, which fights the Black Revolutionaries (黒の騎士団 Kuro no Kishidan?), a rebel group led by a mysterious masked individual known as Rei ( lit. Zero?) (these two organizations turn out to be one and the same, seeking to combat influences of Britannia). Geass is the ability to call upon and summon the armored entities referred to as Knightmares (ナイトメア?), of which Lancelot (ランスロット?) is one.

In late 2009, Bandai announced a new project greenlit for 2010. It is going to involve the simultaneous release of multiple products. A manga, titled Code Geass: Jet-Black Renya (Kōdo Giasu: Shikkoku No Renya), is the first product announced. It features a seventeen year-old boy named Renya with a mechanical arm who uses shuriken as his weapon of choice. The story begins when he encounters C.C. It is supposed to be set in the Edo period. Director Goro Taniguchi will be scripting the story, which is meant to be another part of the official Code Geass history.[28]

CDs

The music for the series, composed by Kōtarō Nakagawa and Hitomi Kuroishi, has been released across two original soundtracks produced by Yoshimoto Ishikawa and released by Victor Entertainment. The first was released in Japan on December 20, 2006, and the second on March 24, 2007.[13] The covers and jackets for both soundtracks were illustrated by Takahiro Kimura.[13]

The series has also been adapted into a series of drama CDs, called Sound Episodes, the first of which was released in Japan in April 2007 by Victor Entertainment, with new volumes released monthly. Written by many of the same writers as the series, these episodes are set between episodes and feature theme songs performed by the series' voice actors. They have also been available online on a limited streaming basis on the Japanese internet website Biglobe.[citation needed]

As of July 2008, eight drama CDs have been released. The first six, released between April 25, 2007 and September 27, 2007 cover the first season of the series, with the following two focusing on the second season.[29]

Light novels

Code Geass has been additionally novelized into a series of light novels. First serialized in Kadokawa Shoten's The Sneaker magazine, they are divided into two separate series (corresponding with the series two seasons), the first Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion spanning five volumes (the first released in Japan on April 28, 2007 and the last on March 1, 2008). It has been licensed for an English language release by Bandai Visual USA.[27]

The second novel series, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 covers the second season of the anime series. The first volume was released on June 1, 2008 and it is still ongoing. A single volume side story novel, Code Geass: Red Tracks (コードギアス 反逆のルルーシュ 朱の軌跡?) was released on April 1, 2008 in Japan.[30]

Another novel was written before the events of the original story by Mamoru Iwasa. It shows when Lelouch and Suzaku met and became friends when Lelouch and Nunnally was sent to Japan as a political hostages. It also goes into details about Genbu Kururugi death and Suzaku's relationship with Kyoshiro Tohdoh. Taizo Kirihara also makes an appearance in the book covering for Genbu after his death by leading the Japanese government against Britannia. It also goes into Lelouch's ability to trust people after his mother's death, and Nunnally's psychological damage and dependence on Lelouch.

Video games

The series is also slated to be adapted into a series of video games, developed for the Nintendo DS,[31] PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2 platforms, which was published by Namco Bandai Games.[32][33][34] The official website for the first Nintendo DS game launched on July 16, 2007, with the game being released a few months later on October 25.[35]

A second game, titled Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Lost Colors was developed for the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation 2, and released in Japan on March 27, 2008.[36] It is a visual novel game which follows a new protagonist named Rai (ライ?), who suffers from amnesia. He has a Geass ability similar to Lelouch's, but activated by voice.

The third game for the Nintendo DS is a collection of minigames featuring super deformed forms of the characters. The player moves along a board through dice rolls, landing on different spots to activate minigames. The minigames are parody-style events with multiple genres. These include helping Jeremiah grow oranges, racing against C.C. and Shirley in swimming, and a sidescrolling beat-em-up featuring Kallen in Guren-like armor.[citation needed]

Artbooks

Two artbooks featuring illustrations of the series, Code Geass Graphics Zero (ISBN 4048540793) and Code Geass Graphics Ashford (ISBN 4048540807), have been published in Japan.[26] Coinciding with the release of the second season of Code Geass was the publication of another artbook, Code Geass - Lelouch of the Rebellion illustrations Rebels (ISBN 4048541692), which featured 134 art pieces of the first season. Another 95 page artbook titled Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion - The Complete Artbook (ISBN 9784048541183) has also been published.[37]

Internet radio broadcasts

"Code Geass" has also been adapted into a series of weekly internet radio broadcasts, which were streamed online on the BEAT☆Net Radio! portal, the first of which, Code Geass: The Rebellion Diary (コードギアス 反逆日記 Kōdo Giasu: Hangyaku Nikki?), began streaming from October 6, 2006. It featured Sayaka Ohara (seiyū of Milly Ashford) and Satomi Arai (seiyū of Sayoko Shinazaki). The second, Code Geass - Yamayamas of the Rebellion (コードギアス 反逆の山々 Kōdo Giasu Hangyaku no Yamayama?), was first streamed on December 12, 2006, and were hosted by Jun Fukuyama (seiyū of Lelouch) and Noriaki Sugiyama (seiyū of Rivalz). During R2, a new show named Code Geass - LuluKuru Station (コードギアス ルルクルステーション Kōdo Giasu Rurukuru Suteishōn?) was streamed, hosted by Fukuyama and Takahiro Sakurai (seiyū of Suzaku).[citation needed]

Corporate sponsorship

Code Geass is sponsored by a number of companies in Japan, with their logos and mascots appearing within the anime (internet service provider BIGLOBE logo's appears in the background of news programs and web searches, Pizza Hut appears on C.C.'s pizza deliveries and she carries around a stuffed toy of the Japanese branch's mascot, Cheese-kun (チーズくん?)).

Reception

When the first episode was shown during a special test screening, which was attended by Ōkawa, other members of the series' staff, as well as several journalists and other media-related personnel in response to the hype surrounding the series' upcoming release, the audience fell into immediate silence after it ended, followed by "tremendous applause."[11]

Since its premiere, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion has collected numerous awards and accolades. At the sixth annual Tokyo Anime Awards held at the 2007 Tokyo International Anime Fair, Code Geass won the best TV anime series award.[5] In noted Japanese anime magazine Animage's 29th Annual Anime Grand Prix, Code Geass won the most popular series award, with Lelouch Lamperouge also being chosen as the most popular male character and "Colors" being chosen as the most popular song[citation needed]. In the 30th Annual Anime Grand Prix, Lelouch won first place again and C.C. was voted most popular female character[citation needed]. At the first Seiyū Awards held in 2007, Jun Fukuyama won the award for best actor in a leading role for his performance as Lelouch Lamperouge in the series, while Ami Koshimizu won the award for best actress in a supporting role for her performance as Kallen Stadtfeld.[citation needed]

Furthermore, Code Geass won the award for Best TV Animation at the twelfth Animation Kobe event, held annually in Kobe, Hyōgo Prefecture,[6] with R2 taking the award in the following year.[38]

Anime News Network's columnist Todd Ciolek attributes the soaring popularity of Code Geass to "the series hitting every important fan sector," with the audience appeal points ranging from a "complex cast of characters and a fast-paced story, told with Goro Taniguchi's capable direction" for "general-interest fans" to "pretty and just-a-little-broken heroes" for "yaoi-buying female fans."[39] Carl Kimlinger also find that the series "has the skill and energy to carry viewers over the top with it, where they can spend a pleasurable few hours reveling in its melodramatic charms."[40] He also adds that Taniguchi "executes the excesses of his series with care, skillfully intercutting events as Lelouch's plans come together (or fall apart) and using kinetic mecha combat".[41]

Columnist Carlo Santos of Anime News Network wrote that the franchise "in a way, [...] reflects the malaise of a generation: the realization that old, rich, powerful people have screwed up the world and that the young are helpless to do anything about it". According to him, Lelouch's actions exemplify the wish to see problems like "economic collapse, class conflict, political instability, radical extremism" solved by "Zero's vigilante methods" but Santos expresses doubt in such an approach and concludes that "the series is at its best when raising questions rather than offering a final solution".[42]

Controversy

On September 14, 2008, the People's Republic of China took action against Youku, one of the largest video sharing websites, ordering the removal of all videos relevant to Code Geass.[43] In addition to the copyright infringement factors, Code Geass seems to be against the censorship regulations in China, as it has been mentioned in an article discussing sex and violence clips on the video sharing websites.[44]

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion

The Day a New Demon was Born

Kallen Stadtfeld: You fellas know full well what this badass mother can do!

Lloyd Asplund: A-ha!
Bartley Asprius: What are you doing?
Lloyd: Looking at a man who blundered, am I right?
Bartley: Why, you--
Lloyd: You really screwed this one up. Terrorists came along and stole whatever it was that you and Prince Clovis were secretly working on. Retrieving it is simple, but you want to sweep up all their compatriots in addition. Let the terrorists go, and you can find their hideout, too. [turns to his assistant, Cécile Croomy] Congratulations! Your reasoning was spot-on!
Cécile Croomy: It was nothing. I just thought it was strange.

[C.C. enters Lelouch's mind and proposes the contract of Geass.]
C.C.: You don't want it to end here, do you?
Lelouch Lamperouge: What?
C.C.: You appear to have a reason for living.
Lelouch: The girl? That's impossible.
C.C.: If I grant you power, could you go on? I propose a deal—in exchange for this power, you must agree to make my one wish come true. Accept this contract, and you accept its conditions. While living in the world of humans, you will live unlike any other: a different providence, a different time, a different life. The Power of the King will condemn you to a life of solitude. Are you prepared for this?
. . .
Lelouch: Yes! I hereby accept the terms of your contract!

[Lelouch has just been granted Geass by C.C. and is planning to use it on the Britannian royal guards who have him cornered]
Lelouch: Say, how should a Britannian who detests his own country live his life?
Britannian royal guard commander: Are you some kind of radical? Huh?
Lelouch: What's wrong? Why not shoot? Your opponent is just a schoolboy. Or have you finally realized…the only ones who should kill are those who are prepared to be killed!
[Lelouch uncovers his left eye and activates Geass]
Britannian royal guard commander: What's happening here?!
Lelouch: I, Lelouch vi Britannia, command you! Now, all of you…Die!
Britannian royal guard commander: [laughs madly as he and his men are overcome by Geass] Happily, Your Highness!
[the royal guards all put their pistols to their necks]
Britannian royal guard commander: Fire!
[the royal guards all shoot themselves; Lelouch gasps in shock that he has indeed made them commit suicide]
Lelouch: [thinking] That was the turning point. Since that day, I've lived a lie: The lie of living. My name, too, was a lie. My personal history, a lie. Nothing but lies. I was sick to death of a world that couldn't be changed. But even in my lies, I refused to give up in despair. But now, this incredible power, it's mine. [aloud, as he grins evilly] Well, then…

The White Knight Awakens

[Lelouch is musing on why C.C. granted him Geass when a Sutherland Knightmare Frame piloted by Viletta Nu barges in]
Viletta Nu: [checks her Sutherland's visual sensors, gasps] How could all these royal guards be dead? [activates her Sutherland's loudspeakers and addresses Lelouch] What happened here, boy?! And why is a Britannian student in a place like this?! Are you deaf?! Answer me, or I'll-- [fires her Sutherland's machine gun around Lelouch] Answer me!
Lelouch Lamperouge: I order you to come out, at once! [activates Geass]
Viletta: [is unaffected by Lelouch's Geass] Who the hell do you think you are to order me?!
Lelouch: [deactivates Geass and thinks] I see. It only works with direct eye contact. [aloud, as he turns to face the Sutherland with his hands up] My name is Alan Spacer. My father's a duke.
Viletta: Nobility?
Lelouch: My ID card's in my breast pocket. After you confirm who I am, I'll request your protection.
Viletta: [deactivates her Knightmare and disembarks, pistol in hand and pointed towards Lelouch] Keep your hands up in the air! I'll take out your ID.
Lelouch: [activates Geass] Now then, hand your Knightmare over to me.
[Viletta is overcome by Geass and points her pistol away from Lelouch]
Viletta: Understood. The code number is XG21G2D4.
[Viletta throws her Sutherland's key at Lelouch, who catches it]
Lelouch: Got it. [deactivates Geass and claims Viletta's Sutherland for his own]

Lloyd Asplund: So, are we having a bad day?! Looks like you missed a chance to go to heaven, Private Kururugi.

[Lelouch has just forced Clovis to order the Britannian forces to cease fighting in the Shinjuku ghetto]
Clovis la Britannia: Are you satisfied?
Lelouch Lamperouge: Very. Well done.
Clovis: And what shall we do now? Sing a few lively ballads, or perhaps a nice game of chess?
Lelouch: That has a familiar ring.
Clovis: Hmm?
Lelouch: [removes his helmet and casts it aside] Don't you recall? The two of us used to play chess together as boys. Of course, I would always win.
Clovis: What?
Lelouch: Remember? At the Aries Villa?
Clovis: You! Who are you?
Lelouch: [walks out of the shadows, revealing his face to Clovis] It's been a long time, big brother. [Clovis gasps] The eldest son of the late consort Marianne and 17th in line to the imperial throne, Lelouch vi Britannia, at your service.
Clovis: Lelouch! B-But I thought--
Lelouch: That I was dead? You were wrong. [sustained pause] I have returned, Your Highness, and I've come back to change everything.

The False Classmate

Royal Captain: (on PA system) Why the hell we're letting the Elevens go? What about the poison gas they've stolen?
Royal Guard: But it's by order of Prince Clovis.
Royal Captain: What about Bartley? Get the general of staff on the line.
Royal Guard: They're not at their post, sir.
Royal Captain: Are you telling me Prince Clovis is alone on the con?

(Lelouch confronts Clovis at gunpoint)

Clovis la Britannia: I'm overjoyed, Lelouch! They say you died once Japan was brought into the fold. What a blessing to have you back, we should depart for the homeland immediately.
Lelouch Lamperouge: So you can use me as a tool of diplomacy, it seems you forgotten why we were used as tools in the first place.

(Clovis gasps)

Lelouch Lamperouge: That's right. It was because my mother was killed.

(In the flashback where Empress Marianne was assassinated)

Lelouch Lamperouge: Mother held the title of Knight of Honor, but was a commoner by birth. No doubt the other imperial consorts held her in contempt. Even though you made it look like the work of terrorists, I'm no fool! You people killed my mother!
Clovis la Britannia: It wasn't me! I swear to you it wasn't!
Lelouch Lamperouge: Then tell me everything you know, the truth cannot be hidden from me any longer. By whose hands was she slain!

(Lelouch use his Geass to make Clovis tell the truth)

Clovis la Britannia: My brother, Second Prince Schneizel and Second Princess Cornelia. They can tell you.
Lelouch Lamperouge: They were at the heart of this? That's all that you know, isn't it?

(Lelouch releases Clovis from his Geass)

Clovis la Britannia: (scarily) I swear it wasn't me! I have... nothing to do with it!
Lelouch Lamperouge: (puts down his gun) I believe you. However...

(Lelouch puts his gun close to Clovis' face)

Clovis la Britannia: Please, you can't! We may have different mothers, but you and I are still blood!
Lelouch Lamperouge: You can't change the world without getting your hands dirty.

(Lelouch pulls the trigger and kills Clovis)

His Name is Zero

The Princess and the Witch

[Jeremiah Gottwald's Sutherland has been cornerned by Kewell Soresi and three other Loyalist pilots in their own Sutherlands]
Jeremiah Gottwald: Damn! It's four against one! Coward!
Kewell Soresi: Don't worry, Jeremiah. We'll say you died in battle. Your family's name won't be disgraced.
Jeremiah: You're serious, then?! You actually intend to kill me?! Kewell!
Kewell: Silence, Orange! We serve the Imperial Family! Why else would we be here?!
[Kewell and the other Loyalists all charge towards Jeremiah with their lances]
Kewell and the Loyalist pilots: [in unison] ALL…HAIL…BRITANNIA!!!

(Euphemia steps out to stop the fighting)

Euphemia li Britannia: Everyone lower your weapons at once, in my name I command you.
Kewell Soresi: It can't be.
Euphemia li Britannia: I am Euphemia li Britannia of the Empire and the Third Princess of the Royal Family.
Suzaku Kururugi: (gasps) Euphie!.
Euphemia li Britannia: I'm assuming command here, now fall back!
Jeremiah Gottwald: It is her, it's the princess.
Cecile Croomy: Didn't you know it was her, Lloyd?
Lloyd Asplund: Uh-huh, but she's been a student up until now and doesn't need a public debut yet.
Kewell Soresi: We... We're truly.. We're truly sorry, Your Highness!

(Kewell and the Purebloods bow to Princess Euphemia)

Suzaku Kururugi: Milady! I have no idea who you were, please forgive me, Princess!
Euphemia li Britannia: Suzaku, you and I bear similar deep pain, you have lost your father as I have lost my brother.

(Suzaku gasp)

Euphemia li Britannia: Will you let me help you in your quest ensure that no one ever again has to suffer the lost of a loved one on the battlefield?

(Suzaku bows to the Third Princess)

Suzaku Kururugi: Yes I'm... I'm worthy of your kindness!

(A conversation is being talk between Euphemia and her older sister Second Princess Cornelia)

Cornelia li Britannia: I heard what you did Euphemia, you shouldn't be so reckless.
Euphemia li Britannia: I know Sister, forgive me but-
Cornelia li Britannia: You will address me as Viceroy here, Sub-Viceroy Euphemia. Because we're sisters we need to follow a strict of protocol.
Euphemia li Britannia: Yes, I understand.
Cornelia li Britannia: Hm, now then give me your report.
Vice minister: Yes, milady, the first order of business is a welcome party we arrange for Your Highness-

(Cornelia points her gun at the Vice minister)

Cornelia li Britannia: Sloppy, cenile, corrupted. Where is Zero?! I want the enemy of the Empire caught! Get Zero!

The Stolen Mask

C.C.: That wasn't my fault, was it? I didn't touch or rub anything.

Emperor Charles zi Britannia: All men…are NOT created equal! Some are born smarter, or more beautiful, or with parents of greater status. Some, by contrast, are born weak of body or mind, or with few, if any, talents. All men are different! Yes, the very existence of man is discriminatory! That's why there is war, violence and unrest. Inequality is not evil. Equality is! What became of the EU, who claimed that all are equal? It is in constant conflict because its tenets go against human nature! The Middle Eastern Federation, which harbors similar sentiments, is constantly mired with sloths! But our Britannia is not like them! We put an end to wars and evolve with every conquest! Britannia alone looks forward and moves forward to a better future! The death of my son Clovis is yet more proof that our empire is evolving. Fight! For the future rests in the hands of its ruler! ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!!!!!

Attack Cornelia

Shirley Fenette: I know Kallen said I had it all wrong, but it seemed like she was getting upset in order to fool me.
Suzaku Kururugi: [holding a telephone] Which is why, in this case, it's best to simply ask him directly. On your behalf, I can ask him how he feels about you.
Shirley: What?! You'd really do that?!
Suzaku: Just relax. It'll be fine.
Shirley: [charges towards Suzaku, takes the phone from him, and slams it on the receiver] Are you nuts?! No way!
[meanwhile, Lelouch is in the cockpit of a stolen Sutherland, conducting terrorist operations in the Saitama ghetto]
Lelouch Lamperouge: [looks at his cell phone] Hmm? Oh, whatever.
[back at Ashford Academy, Suzaku and Shirley are fighting over the phone]
Suzaku: Oh, come on, let me handle this for you! I'll be discreet!
Shirley: I don't want your help, okay?!
Suzaku: It's gonna be fine!
[Suzaku and Shirley fumble and drop the phone, and Suzaku falls on top of Shirley; Arthur the cat is also knocked off his perch during the struggle]
Suzaku: Sorry.
[Shirley gasps; Suzaku then grimaces as Arthur bites his hand]
Shirley: Uh-oh. Does that hurt much?
Suzaku: Greatly.
(In the Britannian homeland, 8 years ago)
Royal Guard: Announcing Prince Lelouch vi Britannia, seventeenth heir to the royal Britannian imperial throne!
Male Noble: I heard Empress Marianne was killed inside of the Britannia Palace.
Male Noble: There's no way terrorists could've gotten in there.
Male Noble: Which means that the real assassins must have-
Male Noble: Shh!, beware my friend, you'll regret it if anyone hears that kind of talk around the palace.
Male Noble: And yet the boy remains, even though his mother is dead, is over.
Male Noble: And the Ashford family who stood behind him is finish as well.
Female Noble: And his sister, the princess?
(Nunnally in the hospital)
Male Noble: I understand she was shot in the legs and that she lost her sight!
Male Noble: Blindness caused by trauma though, isn't it?
Male Noble: No difference, now she can't be marry off through political gain.

(Lelouch approaching his father, the Britannian Emperor)

Lelouch vi Britannia: Hail Your Majesty, my mother the Empress is dead.
Charles zi Britannia: Old news, what of it?
Lelouch vi Britannia: What of it?!
Charles zi Britannia: You sought an audience with the Emperor of Britannia simply inform me of that?
Charles zi Britannia: Send the next one in, I have no time for these childish gains.

(Lelouch running to the Emperor)

Lelouch vi Britannia: Father!

(Guards run to stop Lelouch, but Charles raise his hand to halt them)

Guards: Yes, Your Majesty?!
Lelouch vi Britannia: Why didn't you keep Mother out of harms' way?. You're the emperor, the greatest man in this nation of not the world, you should've protected her and now you don't even visit Nunnally!
Charles zi Britannia: I'm no use for that weakling.
Lelouch vi Britannia: That weakling?
Charles zi Britannia: That is what it means to be royalty.
Lelouch vi Britannia: (angrily) Then I don't want to be your heir, I give up my claim to the throne!

(Nobles gasp of what Lelouch is saying)

Lelouch vi Britannia: I'm sick of the fighting and scheming over who will succeed you Father, I had enough!.
Charles zi Britannia: You are dead.

(Lelouch gasps)

Charles zi Britannia: You were always been dead to me, dead from the moment you were born. Who gave you the fine clothes you wear and comfortable home, the food you eat and your very life?. All of those, I have given to you, in short you are not nothing to me because you have never existed. Yet you dare to speak such foolishness to me?!.

(Lelouch falls as his father rises from the throne)

Charles zi Britannia: Lelouch, you are dead, therefore you are not entitled to any rights. I am sending you and Nunnally to Japan, as prince and princess, you will serve well as bargaining tools.

The Black Knights

'(During the hotel hijacking) (Nina sees a Japanese soldier)

Nina Einstein: An Eleven?
Japanese soldier: What did you say?!

(Nina gasps)

Japanese soldier:(point his gun at them) We're not Elevens, we're Japanese Damn it!
Milly Ashford: Yes we're aware of that just lay off of her!
Japanese soldier: Then correct her, we're not called Elevens!
Shirley Fenette: Fine, we'll correct her.
Japanese soldier: How dare you speak like that to me! You three, come with me to the next room and I'll teach you a real lesson!
Nina Einstein: (sobbing) No.... No!

(Euphemia tries to help but she is stop by her subordinate)

Japanese solider: I said get up now!

(He grabs Nina's arm)

Nina Einstein: Ahhhhh! Let me go!
Euphemia li Britannia: Stop it!
Japanese soldier: Who the hell are you?!

(He throws Nina to the side)

Euphemia li Britannia: I demand you to take me to your leader right now! Understand?
Japanese soldier: WHAT?!
Subordinate: No, Sub-Viceroy please!
Euphemia li Britannia: (takes off her glasses) You're addressing Euphemia li Britannia, the Third Princess of the Britannian Empire.

(Japanese and Britannians gasp)

Euphemia li Britannia: Are you all right young lady? You haven't been hurt.
Nina Einstein: No.

(Lelouch reveals the Black Knights to the world.)
Lelouch Lamperouge (as Zero): People! Fear us, or rally behind us as you see fit! We are the Black Knights!
Cécile Croomy: Black Knights?
Lloyd Asplund: Ironic, isn't it? The terrorists referring to themselves as knights?
Zero: We of the Black Knights stand with all those who have no weapons to wield…regardless of whether they be Elevens or Britannians! The Japan Liberation Front cowardly took innocent Britannian civilians hostage, and they mercilessly executed them! It was a wanton and meaningless act; therefore, they have been punished…
Diethard Ried: You heard me right! I said let it run! Liable?! I'll be the one responsible for this!
Zero: …just as former Viceroy Clovis was punished for ordering the slaughter of countless unarmed Elevens. We cannot stand by and allow such cruelty to be carried out, and so we made him pay for his actions. I will not repudiate battle on a fair and level field, but neither will I tolerate a one-sided massacre of the weak by the strong. The only ones who should kill are those who are prepared to be killed! Wherever oppressors abuse their power by attacking those who are powerless, we shall appear again, no matter how mighty or formidable our foe may be!
Kallen Kouzuki: (Thinking.) Knights…for justice?
Zero: Those of you with power, fear us! Those of you without it, rally behind us! We, the Black Knights, shall be the ones who stand in judgment of this world!

Refrain

[Kallen is standing outside the Student Council room]
Kallen Stadtfeld: [yawns] Man, this double life sure is a killer.
Milly Ashford: [muffled] Come on, Suzaku, hold him down!
Lelouch Lamperouge: [muffled] Damn it, Suzaku, cut it out! [Kallen opens the door to the Student Council room] Stop it! I'm not kidding!
Suzaku Kururugi: Sorry, Lelouch, but it's the President's orders.
[Kallen finds Nina wearing a hat and sitting at a computer and Suzaku, Shirley, Milly, and Rivalz all dressed in cat costumes and struggling to apply makeup to a visibly defiant Lelouch, who is tied to a chair and struggling to get out]
Lelouch: Yeah, like you're not enjoying this at all?!
Shirley Fenette: Would you hold still?!
Milly: [notices Kallen's presence and turns to her] Good "meow"-ning.
Kallen: Good…morning, I guess. [Lelouch, Suzaku, Shirley, and Rivalz all look at her] What is all this?
Rivalz Cardemonde: What do you mean? Didn't we tell you? It's our welcome party for Arthur.
Kallen: Sounds like fun.
Milly: [chuckles] Well, classes are postponed. We might as well have some fun, right?
Shirley: We set some stuff aside for you over here. [points towards a rack of cat costumes and several boxes of accessories] To make up for all my getting upset at you before. Take your pick.
Kallen: What? For me?
Lelouch: She doesn't need a costume.
Kallen: What?
Lelouch: [to Kallen] You're already wearing a mask, right?
Kallen: [sarcastically, to Lelouch] You really are a riot, you know that? You ought to be on television.
Rivalz: [to Shirley] What do you think, Ms. TV Star?
Suzaku: Oh, I thought she meant Lelouch.
Shirley: [sighs] Would you quit joking about that?! The whole thing's a huge pain in the butt! We've been hounded with questions day and night! Even in the bath!
Milly: We haven't been able to leave school grounds in a week!
Rivalz: Not that I don't feel for you, but I don't see why we can't leave either!
Milly: Hmm, that's the price of friendship. The Romance of the Three Kingdoms: "It matters not that we were born apart. Upon this day, we die as one."
Rivalz: Is that your idea of a love quote?
Milly: If I go down, then we all do.
Rivalz: That's a little dark, right, Suzaku?
Suzaku: I'm glad… [tears start welling up in his eyes] That we could all be together again… You know, like this?
Rivalz: [jumps over Lelouch] Come on! We're supposed to be unwinding here! [takes Suzaku down to the ground with him]
[Lelouch, Shirley, and Milly all laugh]
Shirley: That's what's so refreshing about Suzaku, though.
Milly: Yeah, but once in a while, you just want him to get a clue, you know?
Suzaku: [muffled as Rivalz starts pushing on his cheeks] Sorry about that.
Rivalz: Aw, you love it, puddy tat.
[everyone starts laughing]
Kallen: [thinking] It's so funny to think that I helped save their lives.
C.C.: [thinking] "False tears can only hurt others. False smiles can only hurt yourself."

Guren Dances

Cornelia li Britannia: You, the Japan Liberation Front. You, who time has left behind. You, who have forgetten basic human decency. You and your dream of a bygone golden age shall fall and rot to nothingness.
C.C.: (narrating) Lelouch, a young outcast prince of Britannia possesses two great powers: one of them is Geass, the absolute ability to compel any person to do whatever he commands. The other is the Black Knights, his military force assemble with the attempt of destroying the Britannian Empire ruled by his father. Veiling his true identity behind a mask and the codename, Zero. Lelouch has made his move to avenge his mother's murder and to create a world in which his younger sister Nunnally can find happiness. What will be the final outcome of these actions? At this point, no one can predict...

[The Black Knights watch as Cornelia's army begins its attack on Narita]
Lelouch Lamperouge: It's begun.
Shinichirō Tamaki: Huh?! What the hell?! You've got to be kidding, Zero! Those troops coming in have this whole area totally surrounded! There's no way out!
Lelouch: We've already been cut off. Our only chance of surviving now is to fight.
Inoue: What? We can't fight the Britannians!
Tamaki: Let me get this straight, we're surrounded, and you want us to fight them head-on?!
Kento Sugiyama: And we'll be fighting against Cornelia! Her forces are far stronger than any we've encountered!
Lelouch: Correct. It would be a miracle if we win this.
Kaname Ohgi: Zero, what are you saying?!
Lelouch: Even messiahs need to perform miracles if they are to be acknowledged. Therefore, we have to produce our own miracle, don't we?
Tamaki: Now look, pulling this off isn't going to be cheap! The price could be our lives! I knew it was insane to make you our leader! It should be me!
[Lelouch points his pistol at Tamaki, then offers it to him]
Lelouch: Our path of retreat has been cut off. If you think you can win without me, then shoot me! Someone, anyone.
[the rest of the Black Knights look on in shock]
Lelouch: Since you've joined the Black Knights, you have only two choices: You may either live with me…or you may perish with me!

[Jeremiah and the Loyalists have been stationed at the rear line of the Britannian forces]
Jeremiah Gottwald: I thought the reserve units were supposed to be assigned to General Darlton!
Viletta Nu: That's right, they were, but our unit has to secure the rear line of Viceroy Cornelia.
Jeremiah: You mean this is the rear line?! You can't get any farther away from the battlefield! How am I going to redeem my reputation out here if I'm not even near the fighting?!

[Lelouch muses on the trap he has just sprung on the Britannian forces assaulting Narita]
Lelouch Lamperouge: [thinking] Heh. It's even more destructive than I had anticipated. We did succeed in isolating Cornelia's unit, but we could have been a bit more accurate. Perhaps I should have consulted a physics teacher…or asked Nina to tutor me in probability.

[Jeremiah and the Loyalists have just received word of the Black Knights' presence in Narita]
Jeremiah Gottwald: Zero! [pilots his Sutherland down a slope to intercept the Black Knights' forces] How dare he show up here! Zero!
Viletta Nu: Lord Jeremiah, you can't just abandon your post!
Jeremiah: This requires drastic measures! If you want glory in life, then follow me!

Jeremiah Gottwald: The enemy's taken out Carius' unit?! If I can finish this before Zero reaches Princess Cornelia, then I'll be golden!
Viletta Nu: [over the radio] Lord Jeremiah!
Jeremiah: Viletta, you came! I knew that you would!
Lelouch Lamperouge: [thinking] Burn the bridges behind you and keep your back to the wall. Classical strategies remain effective ones, don't they?
Jeremiah: Zero! [takes down two of Lelouch's Burai escorts with his Sutherland's machine gun]
Shinichirō Tamaki: Ugh, damn it! [ejects from his Burai along with another Black Knight]
Jeremiah: Is Zero here?! If he is, then face me! Come forward and fight Jeremiah Gottwald!
Lelouch: [over his Burai's loudspeakers] Well, well, it's been a while, Jeremiah. So, you're still in the army? I'd love to stay and catch up, but I'm afraid I don't have time right this minute, Orange Boy.
Jeremiah: [stammers] Orange?! Die!

[Jeremiah's Sutherland is being fried by the Guren Mk-II's Radiant Wave Surger]
Jeremiah Gottwald: What-- What the hell's happening?!
Viletta Nu: [over the radio] Lord Jeremiah, eject!
Jeremiah: I can't run now! Zero's right in front of me! He's standing right here!
[an alarm goes off in the Sutherland's cockpit, notifying Jeremiah that the auto-ejection system has been activated]
Jeremiah: Damn it! The auto-eject! Don't you dare activate! [voice starts to crack] I can still get Zero! I know it! I know I can still get him! Aah!
[Jeremiah blacks out as the Sutherland's cockpit ejects from the body, causing it to explode; the Guren Mk-II strikes a pose as what remains of Jeremiah's Sutherland goes up in flames]
Kallen Stadtfeld: I won't lose! Not with this…Guren Mk-II!
Viletta: They defeated Lord Jeremiah! Who are the Black Knights? Who are they, these warriors?

Battle for Narita

[Kewell Soresi is trying to engage his ejection seat as his Sutherland is being fried by the Guren Mk-II]
Kewell Soresi: Come on, move! I can't lose to Elevens! I am a Britannian!
[Kewell's Sutherland explodes, killing him]

[a gravely wounded Jeremiah limps in front of a Britannian army cargo truck]
Britannian scientist #1: Ugh, another soldier!
Britanian scientist #2: No wonder our battalions fell apart.
Jeremiah Gottwald: I swear I'm not Orange! ZERO!!!
[Jeremiah collapses]

The Messenger from Kyoto

Lelouch Lamperouge: I am grateful, Lord Kirihara.
Taizo Kirihara: Are you embarking on the path of blood?
Lelouch Lamperouge: Indeed, if that is my destiny...

Shirley at Gunpoint

Cécile Croomy: Oh, Lloyd! Care for another lesson in proper social etiquette? You look like you have some time to kill.
Lloyd Asplund: I'll have to take a pass on that.

Geass vs. Geass

[Shirley visits the memorial at Narita]
Shirley Fenette: Lulu, how could you do this?
Mao: Yes, how could he?
[Shirley gasps and turns to face Mao]
Mao: [claps] A very fine memorial. Isn't that right, Miss Shirley Fenette?

Mao: He's a cruel man, isn't he? Lelouch.
Shirley Fenette: How do you know about Lulu?
Mao: Aw, he deceived you. Never told you he's Zero.
Shirley: [gasps and drops her bag] Who are you?! What do you want?!
Mao: The same mouth that ordered your father's death stole a kiss from your tender lips. He's a very bad man, and you like it. [Shirley shudders as he walks towards her] Punishment must be measured out, to him…and to you.
Shirley: To me?
Mao: I know everything. All that happened that night.
[flash back to the previous night, during the Black Knight assault on the Britannian forces at the harbor; Shirley is in shock that Lelouch and Zero have been revealed to be one and the same]
Viletta Nu: Is that Zero?
[Shirley stands aside as Viletta approaches the unconscious Lelouch, kneels next to him, and grabs him by the hair]
Viletta: Well, well, what a shocker. The student is Zero himself. A Britannian? [laughs evilly before letting go of Lelouch's hair] When I bring him to Viceroy Cornelia, she'll make me a noble! Not just a knight of honor, real nobility! And he's still alive, too! What kind of grand execution will they have in store for him. [stands up to face Shirley] Of course, you'll be rewarded too--
[Viletta gasps, as Shirley is now pointing her gun at her]
Viletta: Stupid of me. He's your boyfriend, isn't he?! [charges towards Shirley]
Shirley: Lulu! [guns down Viletta]
[flash forward to the present day]
Mao: So you're a killer, too. Just like Zero.
Shirley: [gasps] No! That's not true! I just--
Mao: And you actually used your father's death for your own gain.
Shirley: [gasps again] No! I just-- I just--
Mao: Cunning little woman. You knew he'd feel sorry for you, didn't you, so you played it for all it was worth.
Shirley: No! You're wrong!
Mao: Did his sympathy make you all tingly?
Shirley: Stop it!
Mao:: Playing the tragic heroine again?
Shirley: No, I'm not doing that!
Mao: A girl who kills and then goes fishing for attention? Only evil witches do that.
Shirley: I didn't-- I never meant--
Mao: [walks even closer to Shirley] You knew there was another girl who liked Lelouch, and you wanted to get him away from her. [Shirley gasps once more] Now you have to pay the price, Shirley.
[Shirley falls to her knees and breaks down in tears]
Mao: Do you want to carry these feelings around for the rest of your life? All by yourself? [starts clapping] Unless you atone and completely free your heart, you and Lelouch will both be lost in your sins, forever.

Cheering Mao

[C.C. has followed Mao's request to meet him at Clovisland]
Mao: [is riding on the carousel] C.C., your mind is so quiet! It's the only one I can't read! You really are the best there is!
C.C.: As childish as ever, I see.
Mao: I'm a prince on a white stallion…and a prince has to rescue the princess! [gets off the carousel and laughs] Does that make you happy, C.C.?
C.C.: Mao, we talked about this before. I told you that you and I--
Mao: Those were all lies! Lies! C.C., you love me, and this is how I know. [takes off his headphones]
Recording of C.C.'s voice: Thank you, Mao. Mao! Mao.
C.C.: Stop it!
[flash back to Mao's younger days as an orphan]
Mao: BE QUIET!!!
C.C.: Don't listen to them. Just listen to the sound of my voice. That's it. Since my mind is the only one you can't read, and you can only be happy when you're with me, I will stay with you always. Yes…I'm right here, so you don't need to worry.
[flash forward to the present day]
Mao: C.C., you're the only one! The only one I want, forever! Lelouch doesn't matter at all! [walks towards C.C.] If you'll just come with me--
C.C.: Stop it! [knocks Mao's headphones away and pulls a gun on him] I should have done this a long, long time ago.
[gunshot]

[C.C. falls to her knees after being shot in the arm by Mao]]
Mao: I knew it! I knew you couldn't pull the trigger! That's 'cause you really love me, C.C.! [laughs hysterically and claps]
C.C.: You're wrong! I was just using you right from the start!
Mao: What are you saying?! You shouldn't tell lies like that! You really shouldn't! [shoots C.C.] Lies are very, very wicked! Wicked lies! [shoots C.C. four more times] Don't worry! [shoots C.C. once more] I understand! C.C., you must listen to me! I've built a big, brand-new house in Australia! A very quiet, white, immaculate, special house! But to get to Australia, you'll need to take an airplane, and there isn't very much room. [starts walking away from C.C.] The thing is, C.C., you're a little too big to bring on a plane. [picks up a chainsaw] So that's why… [starts up the chainsaw] …I'm going to make you compact! It'll take no time at all! [saws right through a metal signpost, seemingly as if to prove his point]
C.C.: Is this your revenge? You're punishing me?
Mao: Oh, no. I'm not. I'm not, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not at all! [turns towards C.C. and walks towards her] I'm showing you my gratitude!
Lelouch Lamperouge: [via prerecorded message played through Clovisland's television system] So this is the place that you picked.
[Mao turns off his chainsaw as he looks at the screen]
Lelouch: A place where there'd be no one else's thoughts to bother you. That narrowed it way down.
Mao: Lelouch.
Lelouch: Since your Geass has a total maximum range of 500 meters, it can't reach me here at Tokyo Tower.
Mao: [laughs and claps] That's true, that's very true! But what can you do from so far away, hmm? After taking all that trouble to hack into the system, what's your grand plan? A remote-control attack with some battery-operated toys? Or a tongue-lashing to lecture me into submission? [no response from Lelouch] Ah, cat got your tongue now. If you want C.C., then you're gonna have to come--
Lelouch: Mao, think! You don't believe "C.C." is her real name, do you? She never even whispers it to anyone.
[a shocked Mao looks at the screen, then at C.C.]
Lelouch: But I know it, though. She told me her true name.
Mao: Is that right, C.C.? You never told me, ever, ever! But you told it to him?!
Lelouch: You know why? Because C.C. is mine. C.C. belongs to me in every possible way.
Mao: No! She doesn't! She doesn't, she doesn't, she doesn't! She was mine long before she met you!
Lelouch: I have gained every single thing from her, including all of the parts that you have never seen. All of them.
Mao: Lelouch! [starts up his chainsaw again] Face me! [charges towards the screen and starts slashing at it] Lelouch! Come here! Come here so I can look into your mind! I'll see the truth! I'll see what a liar you are! Liar!
Lelouch: Mao. You've lost.
Mao: What are you talking about?! [turns off his chainsaw] I don't care! I'm gonna be with C.C.!

Nunnally Held Hostage

[Rivalz interrupts a conversation between Lelouch and Suzaku by charging in on his motorcycle]]
Rivalz Cardemonde: Hey, Lelouch! [gets off his motorcycle]
Lelouch Lamperouge: What's wrong?
Rivalz: I heard the President's doing a blind date thing again!
Lelouch: Yeah, today.
Rivalz: Today?! [grabs Lelouch by the collar] Why didn't you tell me about it?!
Lelouch: Because it'd make you cry.
Rivalz: Boys don't cry!
Suzaku Kururugi: It's okay. I didn't know about it either.
Rivalz: [lets go of Lelouch and turns towards Suzaku] Don't give me your emo routine!
Suzaku: Emo?
Lelouch: I guess compassion is not in fashion these days.

[Mao's plan to blow up Nunnally has been thwarted by Lelouch and Suzaku's combined efforts]
Lelouch Lamperouge: Hmph.
Mao: You think you've beat me, huh?!
Suzaku Kururugi: [grabs Mao] Stop it!
Mao: Get your hands off of me, father-killer!
[Suzaku is paralyzed in shock]
Mao: You killed your father seven years ago. Heh. He called for do-or-die resistance, and you thought stopping him would end the war. What a childish idea. The fact is, you're a murderer!
Suzaku: That's not true! I just-- I--
Mao: How lucky for you that no one ever found out. All the adults lied to protect you.
Lelouch: But all the reports said his suicide was a protest against the military actions.
Mao: A big, fat lie, all of it!
Lelouch: A lie?
Suzaku: I didn't have any choice! If I didn't, Japan would have--
Mao: That's how you justify it in retrospect? Well, it explains your death wish! [Suzaku gasps] You want to save people's lives? It's your own wretched soul you're trying to save! That's why you're always charging into danger, placing yourself on the edge of death!
[Suzaku falls to his knees and wails in anguish]
Mao: You're no hero! You're just trying to wash the blood off your hands! A little brat begging to be punished!
Lelouch: MAO!!! [activates Geass] NEVER SPEAK AGAIN!!!
Mao: What-- No!
[Mao is overcome by Lelouch's command and is reduced to unintelligible babbling; Lelouch charges towards Mao and attempts to punch him, only to miss as Mao starts walking away]
Lelouch: Mao!
[Mao exits the church and catches sight of C.C. standing in the courtyard]
C.C.: I did love you, Mao.
[Mao babbles as he walks towards C.C.]
C.C.: Mao, I want you to go and wait for me…in C's World. [puts a silenced pistol to Mao's neck and fires, killing him]
[Mao's corpse drops to the ground right before the church doors close; Lelouch looks back at a catatonic Suzaku]
Suzaku: I just… I just…

Knight

[Tamaki is overseeing maintenance of the Guren Mk-II]
Shinichirō Tamaki: Look, just stuff 'em in and close the lid, for crying out loud! It's almost time to move out!
Rakshata Chawla: Take your time and treat it with the utmost care!
[Tamaki and the maintenance crew turn to look at the newly-arrived Rakshata]
Rakshata: It was far more fragile than any of you when I gave birth to it!
Tamaki: Huh? Who the hell are you?!
Rakshata: I am its mother.

I Order You, Suzaku Kururugi

Live On!

Island of the Gods

War at Kyushu

Declaration at the School Festival

[Cécile is playing human whack-a-mole with an inflatable mallet at the student festival]
Cécile Croomy: [giggles] School festivals are such fun! I feel so free! [giggles again]
Britannian soldier #1: That one she keeps whacking, doesn't he look like Lloyd?
Britannian soldier #2: No great wonder. Working under that guy must really drive her out of her mind.

Bloodstained Euphie

Emperor Charles di Britannia: [laughs maniacally] Yes, you're worthy of being called my child now!

Euphemia Li Britannia: [after Lelouch agreed with the Admninistrative Zone of Japan] Do you seriously think I'm going to shoot you even if you threaten me?
Lelouch: No, I don't. But no one escapes my commands. I have the power to command anyone as they forcefully obey.
Euphemia Li Britannia: [giggles] Stop it, Lelouch, you're being silly.
Lelouch: I'm serious. If I order you to kill me, shoot Suzaku, or even if I tell you to kill all the Japanese, you will follow me with no hesitation.

[Lelouch's geass suddenly activated and it affected Euphemia]

Euphemia Li Britannia: [with Lelouch's geass on her] No... N-no, I can't... I d-don't want to kill... W-why...? I-it can't be, I can't... kill... [kneeled down]
Lelouch: [just realized he has activated his geass unknowingly to Euphemia] It can't be! I'm like Mao--I can't control my geass anymore!
Lelouch: No, Euphy! Forget that order!
Euphemia Li Britannia: [Lelouch's geass completely devoured her] That's right, I must kill all Japanese.
Lelouch: No, Euphy!!

[Euphemia picked up Lelouch's gun and ran outside towards the stadium]

Andreas Dalton: Princess! Where's Zero?
Euphemia Li Britannia: [to all] To all those who call themselves Japanese, I have a favor to ask! Do you all mind dying?

[all Elevens gasped to what Euphemia just said]

Eleven 1: Is she insane?
Eleven 2: She must be out of her mind!
Euphemia Li Britannia: I want you all to just simply fall off the cliff but it's impossible, right? So I order all my fellow Britannians--kill all the Japanese!

[Britannians hesitate]'

Andreas Dalton: What are you saying princess? Please stop this nonsense and-- [Euphemia shoots him]
Euphemia Li Britannia: I'm sorry, but I must do this. I must kill all Japanese. Go ahead, Britannian Soldiers! Hurry and kill every Japanese here!

[Zero arrives in the stadium, attempting to stop Euphemia]

Zero: Euphy! Stop this! [Britannian guards blocked Zero] No, get out of my way... [activated his geass] GET OUT!

[commotion has stopped when Euphemia shoots an Eleven]

Euphemia Li Britannia: See? We need to kill all Japanese. So what are you waiting for? Kill them and don't let a single one alive!

[Britannians and Knightmare Frames all obey Euphemia's order. They began to shoot each and every Japanese in sight.] [Zero tried to stop Euphemia, but finds it imposssible]

At Least with Sorrow

Euphemia li Britannia: I, Euphemia li Britannia, bid all of you within the sound of my voice to heed the following command: Seek out any Japanese you can find and please kill them. Leave not a single one of them alive.

[Tamaki attacks a Britannian official in the aftermath of Euphemia's massacre]
Shinichirō Tamaki: Equality?! You can shove that straight up your administrative ass! You lured us into a death trap! You just made the biggest mistake of your lives, you got that?!

[Lelouch has turned over command of the G-1 Base to Diethard and is leaving to pilot the Gawain with C.C. when he runs into Kaguya Sumeragi]
Lelouch Lamperouge: You're Sumeragi's--
Kaguya Sumeragi: Thank goodness I made it in time! That was so mean of you, the way headed off to battle without me! I've been a huge fan of yours ever since your big debut! I was hoping I'd finally get to talk to you. Wow, you're really tall, aren't you?! Don't worry, though! I'll catch up with you pretty soon!
Diethard Reid: Lady Kaguya, I thought the heads of the six houses remained in Fuji.
Kaguya: I followed after you so I could watch my future husband fight.
[Lelouch, C.C., and Diethard are puzzled by Kaguya's statement]
Lelouch: Don't joke around.
Kaguya: Well, once you win this battle, you'll eventually need a wife, won't you? I mean, I know your identity is a big secret and all, but you're gonna need somebody as your public face, right?
Lelouch: Really? You believe we're going to win this battle?
Kaguya: Of course! I am the goddess of victory, after all.
Lelouch: I'd be lucky to have you, then. Unfortunately, I've already made a contract with the devil.
Kaguya: Huh?
Lelouch: I have no room in my life for deities right now.
[Lelouch and C.C. leave for the Gawain as Kaguya looks on]

[Kallen Kozuki found a Britannian Knightmare shooting panicking Elevens]

Kallen Kozuki: [inside Guren Mk-II] Damn Britannian! Stop what you're doing!

[Kallen released a few missiles which leaves the Knightmare unarmed]

Euphemia Li Britannia: [who is the pilot in the unarmed Knightmare] How rude of you! I'm Euphemia Li Britannia, the 3rd Princess of the Imperial Palace!
Kallen Kozuki: Ah, so this is where you're hiding, Puppet Princess.
Euphemia Li Britannia: Oh, you're the one from Kamine Island!
Kallen Kozuki: Why the heck did you fool us?! You just killed a hundred Elevens! Don't you feel any awe or conscience?!
Euphemia Li Britannia: I must kill all Japanese...
Kallen Kozuki: So, that really is it. Fine, I'll finish you now. Any last words?

[when Guren Mk-II closely aimed at Euphemia, Zero and C.C. arrived]

Lelouch Lamperouge: No, Kallen! I shall be handling the princess on my own.
Kallen Kozuki: Do you want her alive?
Lelouch Lamperouge: I believe that would be unnecessary anymore.

[Zero's knightnmare attacked Euphemia's]

Euphemia Li Britannia: [gets out of the Knightmare and looks around for a gun] Kill Japanese! I must kill... Hurry, hurry! [found a gun and shoots Zero's knightmare. Gun suddenly ran out of bullets so Euphemia looked for extra and found some.]

[Zero gets down from his Knightmare]

Euphemia Li Britannia: Oh, I thought you're Japanese! Say, Zero, would you like to join me build the Special Administrative Zone of Japan... [realized she's talking different] Um... Japan...?
Lelouch Lamperouge: I would like to, Euphemia... Together. [aims gun at Euphemia]
Suzaku Kururugi: [inside Lancelot and looks for Euphemia. He caught sight of her and sighs with relief] Euphy...

[Zero suddenly shoots Euphemia]

[Suzaku gasps]
Euphemia Li Britannia: [falls down] Why... Lelouch...?
Lelouch Lamperouge: Goodbye, Euphy... You were my first love.

[Suzaku, in the air, screams in anger and hatred as he zooms down to save Euphemia]

Lelouch Lamperouge: Suzaku?!

The Collapsing Stage

Suzaku Kururugi: When I find you, Zero, I'm going to KILL YOU!!!

[Viletta is sneaking through the ruins of the Tokyo Settlement]
Viletta Nu: [thinking] The power to control people and erase their memories. When you think about it, it makes sense and explains everything that's happened till now. And as a result of its aftereffects, I fell in love with a damned Eleven!

[Suzaku has just defeated Kallen in Knightmare Frame combat]
Suzaku Kururugi: Tell me, where is Zero?!
Kallen Stadtfeld: [nonchalant] You know, I really hate pushy guys.
Suzaku: Okay. Then die here.

[Suzaku has just blundered into a trap laid for him by Lelouch, C.C., Sayoko, and Rakshata]
Suzaku Kururugi: Zero! You deceive the people who trust you to the very end! You betrayer!
Lelouch Lamperouge: Hmph. I've no time to argue which of us is the bigger hypocrite. Farewell, Suzaku Kururugi.
Suzaku: Damn you!

[Lelouch and C.C. have arrived at the Britannian Government Bureau, where Cornelia is waiting for them]
Cornelia li Britannia: Welcome, Zero! I figured you would show up here as soon as you heard about the air raid. Now…join us for your welcome soirée. Care for a dance?

[Ohgi is meeting with Viletta in private]
Kaname Ohgi: Chigusa, why did you come to this battlefield? We need to find someplace safe for you. Stay with me for now.
[Viletta backs away from Ohgi when he tries to get close to her]
Ohgi: Look, I'm sorry I hid this from you, but everything I'm doing is for the sake of peace! If Zero succeeds in freeing Japan from Britannia, then we can finally be together!
Viletta Nu: Oh, stop before I puke!
[Viletta grabs Ohgi's pistol from his jacket pocket and presses the barrel to his back]
Viletta: Me together with an Eleven like you? What a horrible thought. [scoffs] My name is Viletta Nu, and I am a knight of honor of Britannia.
[Ohgi turns to face Viletta, then gets shot in the stomach]
Ohgi: [falls to his knees] So I see, Chigusa… You've gotten your memory back… [groans, then falls to the floor]

[two Black Knights searching for Viletta in the Ganymede hangar at Ashford Academy are startled when the Ganymede, rigged with a primitive nuclear bomb, activates]
Nina Einstein: Zero, Princess Euphemia…
[cut to the Britannian Government Bureau, where Cornelia is fighting Lelouch and C.C.]
Cornelia li Britannia: …WILL BE AVENGED!!!
[the Gawain misses an attack on Cornelia's Gloucester, which counters by charging with its lance]
Cornelia: What's wrong, Zero?!
[Cornelia's Gloucester strafes the Gawain with its machine gun as Lelouch desperately types away at the Gawain's controls]
Lelouch Lamperouge: The specs on this thing are far superior to hers!
[the Gawain attempts to take off, only to get snagged by the Gloucester's Slash Harkens; the Gloucester now attempts to latch onto the larger Knightmare]
Cornelia: You're just a weakling! I have you! I have you right where I want you! Your life is now in my hands!
Lelouch: Cornelia!
[Cornelia readies the final blow]
Cornelia: This is your judgment!
[out of nowhere, Cornelia's Gloucester gets impaled by a Knightmare lance]
Andreas Darlton: [via radio] Princess, it's me, Darlton.
Cornelia: [gasps, dumbstruck by Darlton's treachery] Why? Darlton, why?
Darlton: Don't be afraid. I haven't come to kill you, my lady.
Lelouch: Well, he made it.
Darlton: I've come to deliver you to Zero, Your Highness.
[Darlton suddenly relents as the Geass command placed on him wears off and he sees Cornelia's Gloucester plummeting to the ground]
Darlton: What have I done?! Why, Princess?!
[Cornelia's Gloucester smashes on the ground]
Lelouch: Thank you, Darlton.
[Lelouch repays Darlton for his service by firing on his Gloucester with the Gawain's hadron cannons]
Darlton: [as his Gloucester is exploding] PRINCESS!!!

(Nunnally is sitting in the student council room where she hears a door open)

Nunnally Lamperouge: Hello, oh who's there? Is that you C.C.?

(V.V. appears)

V.V.: No, it's not.
Nunnally Lamperouge: Hm? but-
V.V.: Nunnally, I've come to take you with me.

Zero

[Lelouch arrives where Princess Cornelia is badly injured]

Cornelia li Britannia: So, you were Zero... The entire time. Darlton was right, he said it was someone with a grudge against the Britannian Imperial Family. You... You did this.. For Nunnally?
Lelouch vi Britannia: Correct. I will the demolish the present world and build a new and better one in its place.
Cornelia li Britannia: You killed them all for the sake of that madness?! Clovis?! Even Euphie?!
Lelouch vi Britannia: You're one to talk, my dear sister. Considering how you idolized my mother, Marianne the Flash.
Cornelia li Britannia: It would seem that talking with you further... would approve to be utterly pointless.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Indeed. Well then, Lelouch vi Britannia orders you to answer then.

(Lelouch used his Geass on Cornelia)

Cornelia li Britannia: Go on.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Sister, are you the one who killed my mother?
Cornelia li Britannia: I'm not.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Then who was it?
Cornelia li Britannia: I don't know.
Lelouch vi Britannia: But you were put in charge of her personal guard, were you not?
Cornelia li Britannia: Yes.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Then why did you withdraw her escort?
Cornelia li Britannia: I was asked to.
Lelouch vi Britannia: By who?
Cornelia li Britannia: Lady Marianne.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Mother did... That's impossible! My mother knew she will be attacked that day?! No, that's can't! She did. She would've got us out of there! What really happened back then?! Who killed her?! Who killed my mother, Damn it?!

[Cornelia doesn't answer]

Lelouch vi Britannia: You don't know the truth?! Then who does?! Someone must know, you yourself investigated of what occurred that day!
Cornelia li Britannia: I remembered His Majesty, the Emperor ordered Schneizel to transport the body out of there.
Lelouch vi Britannia: The body? You mean there others? Then what was in that coffin?
C.C.: Hey! Get back in here!
Lelouch vi Britannia: I know, the Government Bureau Defense Forces will be here soon.
C.C.: No! Your little sister's been kidnapped!
Lelouch vi Britannia: Hmm? C.C., this is not the time for jokes. We'll take Cornelia back to the command center as our hostage.
C.C.: She's been taken! I just know because she's the reason you live! She's on Kamine Island!
Lelouch vi Britannia: Kamine Island?
[Lelouch is preparing to take Cornelia prisoner and leave with C.C. when Jeremiah barges in with the Siegfried]
Jeremiah Gottwald: ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!!! Mister Zero, can it really be?! What?! Oh, what luck, what fate, what evil fortune!
Lelouch Lamperouge: Is that you, Orange Boy?!
Jeremiah: [stammers] Oh, I beseech you! I'm begging you, please die.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Get Cornelia!
C.C.: I'm already on it!
Jeremiah Gottwald: Zero! I…must rid the world of the Empire's enemies! Yes, and so…ALL HAIL BRITANNIA!!!

[Lloyd and Cécile are on board the Avalon; Cécile is suiting up for deployment in her own Knightmare Frame]
Cécile Croomy: Why did you try to stop Suzaku?
Lloyd Asplund: I'm a military contractor.
Cécile: You didn't want him killed, did you?
Lloyd: Why should I care? You know as well as I do. The biggest human flaw is that we're so pitifully fragile in our bodies, our hearts, and our relationships with each other.
Cécile: [puts on her earpiece] Nevertheless, you can't bend the world or people any which way you want.
Lloyd: I want every part in my mechanisms to function exactly as I wish. If we lose Kururugi, we'll just have to find another devicer.

[Jeremiah has tracked Lelouch and C.C. to Kamine Island and is engaging them with the Siegfried]
Jeremiah Gottwald: Zero, it is I! Repent is now!
Lelouch Lamperouge: Stubborn ass!

[Jeremiah has hit the Gawain twice and is readying the Siegfried for the finishing blow]
Jeremiah Gottwald: It's time for my wonderful vindication!
[Lelouch fires the Gawain's hadron cannons at the ocean surface, generating a massive plume of water]
Jeremiah: Insidious isolation impudence!

[in Zero's absence, the Britannian forces have managed to rally and push back the Black Knights]
Claudio Darlton: Hold your ground! Victory's within our reach! Be strong!
Nagisa Chiba: Damn it, we can't hold out!
Shougo Asahina: Enemy reinforcements will be here soon!
Kento Sugiyama: What should we do?!
[Sugiyama watches Inoue's Burai get blown up]
Sugiyama: Inoue? Ugh, where the hell is he?! [fires his Burai's machine gun into the air in vain] Zero!
Gilbert G.P. Guilford: All forces, charge! We'll smash these filthy rebels with one blow!
[Tohdoh's custom Gekka attempts to slice through the Britannian offensive]
Kyoshiro Tohdoh: Fight to your last breath! Stop at nothing! Because if they break through here, our forces will collapse completely!
[meanwhile, Diethard's forces have been forced to retreat to Ashford Academy]
Diethard Reid: [thinking] It's not that Tohdoh isn't a brilliant military leader. He simply lacks the incredible charisma that Zero possesses. We need him! He can't run out on us, not now!
[Kaguya has been left to look after the G-1 on the outskirts of the Tokyo Settlement]
Kaguya Sumeragi: [thinking] Oh, Zero, have you really abandoned us? Have you abandoned Japan?!

[Lelouch is unsuccessfuly trying to parley with Suzaku to get his aid in recovering Nunnally]
Lelouch: That trap at the entrance was designed to buy them time. Was I they intended target? Or was it C.C?

First thing to do is to make sure Nunnally is alright

[Lelouch walks to the door and puts his hands on it and Suzaku shoots it]
Suzaku': Turn and face me. Very slowly.
[Lelouch as Zero turns thinking]
Lelouch': Dammit! Why now.
Suzaku': Didn't you hear me? Zero? I said turn and face me. Very slowly.
Lelouch': Euphemia randomly murdered through many innocent Japanese people. You fight for woman who-
Suzaku:
Suzaku Kururugi: I'm done with that! Had you only joined up with Euphie first, we wouldn't be here! If you and she had combined forces, thing would be different! The world--
Lelouch Lamperouge: That's all in the past! Over and done!
Suzaku: Past?!
Lelouch: You killed your own father, didn't you?! Wallow in remorse when you have time for it!
Suzaku: No! You're hopeless!
Lelouch: What?
Suzaku: I know you! In the end, you'd betray the entire world, the way it's betrayed you! I'm not going to let your sick, twisted dream be realized!

Suzaku Kururugi: Nothing that happens now is any of your concern! Your very existence is a mistake! You need to be erased from the face of the Earth! I'll TAKE CARE OF NUNNALLY!

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2

The Day a Demon Awakens

Kousetsu Urabe: We're the only ones left now. This is all that remains of the Black Knights, who, along with Zero, once struck terror in the heart of Britannia. Still, it's too soon to give into despair. If Operation Flying Swallow Four is successful, then…
Black Knights: Yes.
Urabe: Forgive me. Here's to you.
[Urabe and the other Black Knights drink from saucers of sake]
Urabe: [raises his saucer into the air] To victory! Long live Japan! [drops his saucer to the floor]
Black Knights: [drop their saucers to the floor] Long live Japan!

[Shinichirō Tamaki, Nagisa Chiba, Kaname Ohgi, and Kyoshiro Tohdoh have been imprisoned for their involvement with the Black Knights; Tamaki has just been assaulted by two Britannian prison guards]
Shinichirō Tamaki: [growls as he gets back up] If Zero was here, you wouldn't be acting so tough!
Nagisa Chiba: Do me a favor! Don't say that traitor's name again!
Tamaki: Hey, Zero didn't betray us!
Britannian prison guard: Shut up, you stinking Eleven! [hits Tamaki with the butt of his rifle]
Kaname Ohgi: There has to be a reason for what he did.
Chiba: What reason?! Why'd the commander vanish during the final decisive battle like that?!
Kyoshiro Tohdoh: Stop it! It serves no purpose. Zero's dead, after all.
Ohgi: [gasps] He's dead?

[Li Xingke, part of the Chinese Federation diplomatic party to Area 11, is accosted by two Britannian security guards]
Britannian security guard #1: May we have what you're carrying, sir?
Britannian security guard #2: Our security is perfect. You don't need to carry that antique weapon here.
[Xingke unsheathes his sword, slashes at the two guards, and sheathes back his sword in one stroke; the guards are unharmed, but their severed belts then drop to the ground]
Gao Hai: Xingke! That was rude of you!
Li Xingke: Please forgive me. But I hoped it would offer you and the other Britannians a better understanding of the Chinese Federation.

[Lelouch has regained use of his Geass and is confronting the black-ops forces sent to kill him and C.C.]
Lelouch Lamperouge: Before you dispose of me, I'd like you to answer a question.
[both Lelouch and C.C. stand to face the black-ops soldiers]
Britannian black-ops soldier #1: That girl's still alive!
Britannian black-ops soldier #2: Impossible! She was shot through the heart!
Lelouch: [starts walking towards the Britannian black-ops soldiers] If being powerless is so terribly wrong, then does having power make you right? Do you find vengeance evil? What's your value of friendship? Is it justice?
Britannian intelligence officer: There's no justice or evil. The only truth that's left for you, bait, is the simple reality of death.
Lelouch: I see. Then that reality is all that remains for you as well. I, Lelouch vi Britannia, command you! All of you…die!
Britannian intelligence officer: It-- It can't be!
[the entire Britannian black-ops force is overcome by Lelouch's Geass]
Britannian black-ops soldiers: [in unison] Yes, Your Highness!
[the black-ops soldiers all point their rifles and pistols at each other, while the intelligence officer puts his pistol to his neck as he laughs madly; Lelouch looks on as the soldiers all commit suicide]
Lelouch: [thinking] Ever since that day, my heart simply couldn't accept it. This fake life I was never able to fit into, all the time that was lost, these false memories planted in me, giving me a life as one of the herd, and yet…the truth continues to guide me toward itself. That's right! It wasn't me who was wrong! It was the world!
[the Guren Mk-II and Urabe's Gekka smash through the room and land before Lelouch, facing him]
Lelouch: [aloud] The world has to change, so I will change it.
Kousetsu Urabe: [via his Gekka's loudspeakers] We've been waiting for you, Master Zero. Please, give us your orders.
Lelouch: Very well! Because, after all, I am Zero, the one who will crush the world…and the one who will recreate the world anew!

Plan For Independent Japan

[a lone Sutherland encounters Lelouch at the massacre site of the Britannian black-ops soldiers]
Britannian pilot: What are you doing there? That's a student uniform, isn't it?
Lelouch Lamperouge: Oh! You're a soldier! Thank goodness! We need to help this man at once!
[the Sutherland pilot sees Lelouch kneeling next to the dead Britannian intelligence officer]
Britannian pilot: Office of Secret Intelligence? What are the Emperor's personal agents doing here?
[the Sutherland pilot deactivates his Knightmare and disembarks]
Lelouch: [thinking] Good. These reports are accurate. Carares' forces don't know about me, so I can use the data in this journal.
Britannian pilot: There's only one survivor?
Lelouch: [aloud] Yes. Just you.
Britannian pilot: What?
Lelouch: [gets up] That's right. [uncovers his left eye, revealing his permanently active Geass] Now, give me your Knightmare.
Britannian pilot: [is overcome by Geass] I understand. The ID code is QR5YK1D6. [gives his key to Lelouch]
Lelouch: [takes the key] Thank you.
[C.C. emerges from her hiding spot behind a nonfunctional Sutherland]
C.C.: Even though you need direct eye contact, are those theatrics necessary?
Lelouch: I don't need comments from an immortal witch.

[Kallen, in the Guren Mk-II, ambushes a Britannian Sutherland]
Kallen Stadtfeld: Let me see you burst, Britannian!

[Emperor Charles has introduced Suzaku to the Sword of Akasha]
Suzaku Kururugi: This place… Is it a shrine?
Emperor Charles di Britannia: No, it's not. This is… This is a weapon for destroying God.

[Kallen has just appeared before Lelouch and is pointing a gun at him]
Lelouch Lamperouge: You who abandoned Zero at Kamine Island, what do you want to tell me?
Kallen Stadtfeld: Lelouch. You were deceiving me right from the very beginning.
Lelouch: About Zero being your classmate, or about my Geass power? Which one has offended you?
Kallen: Both of them. Tell me this: Did you use your Geass on me like you did the others? Did you twist my mind and my heart and make me follow you? [Lelouch laughs derisively] Lelouch!
Lelouch: Your mind and your heart are yours alone, as was your loyalty and admiration for Zero.
[Lelouch starts walking towards Kallen]
Kallen: Don't move!
Lelouch: [continues approaching Kallen] Kallen, you should be proud of what you did. You decided. You made the choice. You chose… [takes Kallen's gun away from her] …Zero. [Kallen backs away from Lelouch] You don't believe me?
Kallen: [hesitating] I wanted to believe, so much that I'd become a slave.
Lelouch: I see.
Kallen: But… [regains her composure] …The one I believe in is Zero! Just him! It's not you, Lelouch!
Lelouch: Well, fine with me. [notes Kallen's Playboy Bunny attire and the Knightmare Frame key stuck in her cleavage] By the way, are you ever going to change out of those clothes?
[Kallen, taken by surprise, turns away from Lelouch and tries to cover her breasts]
Kallen: Don't look at me, you pervert!
Lelouch: [playfully] Oh, is that the way you talk to Zero now?
Kallen: [indignant] I'm saying it to you, Lelouch!

[the Knights of the Round are watching Zero's broadcast]
Gino Weinberg: Come on, Zero's dead, isn't he?
Suzaku Kururugi: Yes.
Gino: So, this guy's a fake. And whoever he is, if we just go over there and storm the consulate…
Suzaku: Then we'd be breaking our treaty with them, risking an international incident.
Gino: He's saying that he's Zero, and Zero killed our royals. That gives this equal status with the E.U. war.
Anya Alstreim: It's a slippery slope either way.

[Zero has just declared that the room of the Chinese Federation consulate he's in will be the first dominion of the reformed United States of Japan]
Rakshata Chawla: [laughs hysterically] A nation consisting of just one room! That man's as amusing as ever.

[Xingke is greeted by the Vincent at the entrance of the Chinese Federation consulate]
Li Xingke: If you are Britannian, you have already been asked to leave. Or, are you one of Zero's followers?
[Rolo, the pilot of the Vincent, emerges from its cockpit]
Rolo Lamperouge: I'm not sure. Which am I?
Xingke: I'm not terribly fond of riddles.
Rolo: Yes. I'm exactly the same way myself. What I want to know is the truth. That's why I came here to kill Zero.
(Inside the Britannian throne room)
Lelouch Lamperouge: He brought me before the Britannian Emperor.
Charles zi Britannia: The former seventeenth heir to the imperial throne, Lelouch vi Britannia. It been a long time hasn't it my errant son?
Lelouch Lamperouge: How dare you!
Suzaku Kururugi: You won't use your Geass.
Suzaku Kururugi: Your Majesty, I have a request. Please sire, allow me to join the Knights of the Round, the twelve strongest knights of the Britannian Empire.
Charles zi Britannia: As a reward for capturing Zero, is that it?
Lelouch Lamperouge: You!
Suzaku Kururugi: I told you before Lelouch, that I was going to change this world from the inside.
Lelouch Lamperouge: Even if it means selling out your friends?!
Suzaku Kururugi: That's right.
Charles zi Britannia: Very well, I like the answer you just gave him.
(Charles rising from the throne)
Charles zi Britannia: Now then, as a Knight of the Round I order you, cover up Zero's left eye.
(Suzaku lifts up Lelouch's head and covers his left eye)
Suzaku Kururugi: Yes,Your Majesty.
Charles zi Britannia: My unworthy son, who raise the banner of rebellion, although he was a prince. Still there's another way we can make use of him.
Lelouch Lamperouge: What?!
(Charles' Geass activates as two Geass sigils light up in both of his eyes)
Charles zi Britannia: I will rewrite your memory, about being Zero, about the death of your mother, about the very existence of Nunnally.
Lelouch Lamperouge: No Geass.
Charles zi Britannia: You'll remember none of it, you'll just be insignificant.
Lelouch Lamperouge: No, stop!. You're stealing of what's most precious to me again. First my mother and now you're taking Nunnally!.
Charles zi Britannia: Charles zi Britannia engraves into you!
Lelouch Lamperouge: Stop it!
Charles zi Britannia: False memories of a false life!
(Lelouch screams as his father's Geass enter his mind and alter his memories)
Lelouch Lamperouge: AHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Imprisoned in Campus

[Kallen has just found out that Lelouch has swapped places with C.C. so he can escape back to Ashford Academy]
C.C.: What's the matter?
Kallen Stadtfeld: When did you two switch places?
C.C.: Before the speech.
Kallen: But I--
C.C.: His voice was re-recorded. The moment "he" appeared, it was already me, just like in a magic show.
Kallen: [angry] You planned it on your own. We don't like it when you keep secrets from us.
C.C.: "We" don't like it? You mean, you don't like it, do you?

[Kallen has just come back from the showers and is barging in on a meeting between C.C., Gao Hai, and Xingke]
Kallen Stadtfeld: C.C.! I was just thinking, wouldn't it have made more sense for you to have played the bunny girl?!
[Kallen realizes just what she's gotten herself into, then starts shrieking hysterically before running behind an opaque glass divider]
Gao Hai: Zero is...a girl?!
C.C.: Correct.
Kallen: [ducks out from behind the divider] I'M NOT ZERO!
C.C.: Oh, you let on too soon. You have no sense of humor, do you?
Kallen: Don't play around with Zero!
C.C.: [as Kallen's towel starts slipping] We can see you.
[Kallen shrieks again as she puts her towel back on and ducks behind the divider once more]

[Shirley and Lelouch are out shopping for a birthday present for Viletta Nu]
Shirley Fenette: [thinking] Is this...a date? If it's not...I'll make it one!

[Lelouch's attempt to ambush Rolo at Ashford Academy has backfired]
Rolo Lamperouge: Lelouch, now you and your demonic eye...will die.

(Guilford is at a Britannian territory where the Black Knights are about to be executed)

Gilbert G.P. Guilford: Zero, can you hear me?! Listen closely, I am Lord Gilbert G.P. Guilford! Knight of Her Royal Highness, Cornelia li Britannia! Beginning tomorrow at 1500 hours, these 256 special Class A felons, who are guilty of treason against the Empire will all be executed for their crimes! Zero, if you value the lives of your people? Then you will face me one on one in a honorable duel!

Counterattack at the Gallows

[Rolo reflects on how many people he's murdered over the years]
Rolo Lamperouge: [thinking] That's right. I can't remember how many people I've killed. Nobody counts the number of times they brush their teeth or eat a meal. Same with this. My Geass is suited to assassination. That's what I was told. So, I kill. There was no other place for me.

[two Office of Secret Intelligence officers are complaining to Viletta about Rolo's conduct]
OSI officer #1: Unacceptable! Did this kid kill Bruno in cold blood or not?!
OSI officer #2: And he was the fifth one!
OSI officer #1: All Victor did was touch the kid's locket, and the next thing--
Viletta Nu: Victor had his own personality problems.
OSI officer #1: [slams his fist on the table] You don't kill a man because of that!
OSI officer #2: Now that there's this guy claiming to be Zero, we have to get our priorities straight and pull the team together.
OSI officer #1: That's exactly right, and I'm not teaming up with a freaking angel of death.
[Rolo has been overhearing the conversation the entire time]
Rolo Lamperouge: [thinking] Team? The mission is what's important, isn't it? Who cares about the team?

[Li Xingke is questioning Gao Hai about his dealings with Zero]
Li Xingke: Why did you recognize the USJ on your own without confirmation from the Vermillion Forbidden City? Even if you are one of the High Eunuchs, that was unforgivable. Just what are you planning to use Zero for?
Gao Hai: I've no intention to use Zero for anything! Zero must be pleased in every way!
Xingke: And the Empress' feelings on this?
Gao Hai: [increasingly petulant] That little wench doesn't matter! The absolute law is that Zero shall bring happiness to me!
Xingke: Simpering traitor!
[Xingke rips Gao Hai's throat out with a knife on a string]

[Lelouch and Guilford are about to start their Knightmare Frame duel while C.C. and Xingke observe from the Chinese Federation consulate]
Lelouch Lamperouge: I have a question for you, Lord Guilford. What do you do when there is an evil you cannot defeat by just means? Do you stain your hands with evil to destroy evil, or do you remain steadfastly just and righteous even if it means surrendering to evil?
C.C.: In either case, evil remains.
Li Xingke: A paradox. Is it merely wordplay?
Gilbert G.P. Guilford: In the name of Cornelia, I choose justice! [charges at Lelouch's Burai with his Gloucester]
Lelouch: I understand. In my case, I commit evil to destroy the greater evil!

[Kallen engages one of the Glaston Knights, Alfred G. Darlton, in the confusion surrounding the upheaval of the Britannian forces onto the Chinese Federation consulate grounds]
Kallen Stadtfeld: Britannia, you're on notice! This is Japanese territory now!
Alfred G. Darlton: There is no Japan!
Kallen: Oh, really?! That's why I hate Britannians!
[Kallen charges towards Alfred and successfully parries his lance strike, seemingly leaving herself open for a point-blank rocket barrage from his Gloucester]
Alfred: Goodbye, Eleven ace!
[Alfred fires his rocket pods at point-blank range, only to have the attack blunted by the Guren Mk-II's Radiant Wave Surger]
Alfred: It's blocked at this close range?!
[Kallen clamps onto Alfred's Gloucester's head with the Radiant Wave Surger]
Kallen: This is the Radiant Wave Surger! The moment you came in close, my victory was assured! So long!
[Kallen activates the Radiant Wave Surger and fries Alfred and his Gloucester]

Knights of the Round

[Viletta has just been roped into dressing skimpily for a school event by the Swim Club]
Viletta Nu: [thinking] So help me, Shirley, you'll die a thousand deaths for this!

[Lelouch has pushed C.C. towards a big bucket of tomatoes]

Shirley Fennette: Um, Lulu, are you alone?
Lelouch Lamperouge: [closes the bucket] Y-yeah.
Shirley Fennette: Aren't you just talking with somebody just now?
Lelouch Lamperouge: No, it's just you and me right now.
Shirley Fennette: [blushes] That's right... It's just Lulu and me... This may be my chance! Lulu, Do you want to... Eh?

[saw a big mascot covering Lelouch]

Lelouch Lamperouge: I-I'm sorry, Shirley... It's difficult to hear you from here! [to Kallen] What are you doing here?!
Kallen Kozuki: I'm here to drag that pizza girl out!
Lelouch Lamperouge: She's in that big case of tomatoes. Carry the whole bucket and get it out from... WOAH!

[Shirley strongly pulled Lelouch out from the mascot and dropped him in the ground]

Shirley Fennette: [to the mascot] Who are you?! How dare you drag Lulu like that! Show yourself! [tries to pull the mascot's head away]
Kallen Kozuki: If I did, my identity will be revealed!
Lelouch Lamperouge: [recovering from his fall] What a disgrace...

[Suzaku and Milly suddenly arrived]

Suzaku Kururugi: Lelouch!
Milly Ashford: Have you seen Arthur?
Lelouch Lamperouge: No, I don't think I have...

[a rumbling sound came from the huge bucket--it was C.C. kicking the box]

Suzaku Kururugi: Arthur must be in there!
Lelouch Lamperouge: Cats and tomatoes don't mix!

[Ganymede suddenly arrives and carries the huge bucket up]

Suzaku Kururugi: Wha--? Gino?
Gino Weinberg: [piloting Ganymede] That's right, Suzaku! I'll be making the biggest pizza in the world myself! See ya! [Gino zooms away with the tomato bucket]
Lelouch Lamperouge: No, wait!! [runs after Ganymede and Kallen and Shirley follows]
Gino Weinberg: Now, it's shake time! [shakes the bucket, drowning C.C.]

[Arthur found himself in front of Ganymede and ran away]

Suzaku Kururugi: Was that... Arthur?
Milly Ashford: Oh man, I think I'm going to rebuild the festival again.

[Lelouch runs after Ganymede, but suddenly overtaken by Suzaku, then by Kallen, then by Shirley]

Lelouch Lamperouge: [stops and pants] This wasn't my kind of outfit...
Milly Ashford: [runs happily and overtakes Lelouch] Fire away!

[Lelouch groans and pants]

Surprise Attack Over the Pacific

[Anya Alstreim gets the drop on Nagisa Chiba and crushes her Gekka's head with the Mordred's hand]
Anya Alstreim: Tag. You're dead.

[Anya tries to get Kallen to let go of the Mordred by firing a point-blank rocket barrage at the Guren Mk-II]
Anya Alstreim: Dirty shoes.

The Abandoned Mask

[Lelouch remembers all of his friends including Nina, Kallen, Suzaku, and Nunally ]
Lelouch Lamperouge: Long time ago, Nunally, Suzaku, and I talked about something. We wondered what happiness would look like if we could give it a physical form. If I'm not mistaken, I think it was Suzaku that said that the shape of happiness might resemble glass. His reasoning made sense. He said that even though you don't usually notice it, its still definitely there. You merely have to change your point of view slightly, and then that glass will sparkle when it reflects the light. I doubt that anything else could argue its own existence more eloquently.

(In the Britannian Government Bureau)

Nunnally vi Britannia: How do you do everyone?. I am Nunnally vi Britannia of the royal family, 87th in line to the imperial throne. Due to the unfortunate untimely loss of Duke Calares recently, I'll shall assuming the viceroyship of Area 11 in his place.

One Million Miracles

Anya Alstreim: Are you some kind of masochist?

[Lelouch, several Knights of the Round, and Lloyd Asplund are about to discuss the Special Administrative Zone of Japan]
Lloyd Asplund: Excuse me, I just wanted to ask you. Are you the same Zero as before, or are you a brand new one?
Lelouch Lamperouge: Zero's truth is not based on who is within. It is the actions that measure the man.
Lloyd: A-ha, a philosopher.

[Lelouch appears at the ceremonies that were for the opening of the Special Adminstrative Zone of Japan]
Lelouch Lamperouge: I do not wish to be in your debt. However, I have a question. What does it mean to Japanese? A nation.
Suzaku Kururugi: What?
Lelouch: It is language, territory, bloodlines?
Suzaku: No, that is not it. It is in the heart.
Lelouch: Then we are in agreement. A feeling within, of belonging, diginity, pride, the culture is carried in the heart. You are Japanese no matter where you are.

A Bride in the Red Forbidden City

[Tamaki interrupts a conversation between Sugiyama, Minami, and Asahina about the Chinese Federation]
Shinichirō Tamaki: Asahina, don't you know? The High Eunuchs may be guys, but they got no jewels down below!

[Lelouch and Schneizel are playing chess; Lelouch decides to move his king]
Schneizel el Britannia: It is your king.
Lelouch Lamperouge: If the king does not lead, then how can he expect his subordinates to follow?
Schneizel: Impressive strategy. In fact, I will do the same.
Lelouch Lamperouge: What?! A political marriage?!
Kaguya Sumeragi: Yes. I've recieved an invitation to the weddding from the Sumeragi conglomerate. The bride is to be the Empress, icon of the Chinese Federation, I'm her good friend and she wants me to attend.
Tohdoh: And the groom is to be the First Prince of Britannia.
Rakshata: That one they call Odysseus.
Annoucer: Annoucing the arrival of the Prime Minister of the Holy Britannian Empire, Second Prince Schneizel!

(Nina was about to attack Zero with a knife but she is stopped by Suzaku)

Nina Einstein: ZERO! Princess Euphemia will be AVENGED!!!
Suzaku Kururugi: (holding her arm) Stop it, Nina! Drop the knife!
Nina Einstein: Aah!! Why are you stopping me? You all people should've understand since you were Princess Euphemia's knight!
Suzaku Kururugi: That's right. But why...?
Nina Einstein: You were just an Eleven after all! I give you... (Kallen stopped Nina before she's about to kill Zero) Why, Kallen? You're half-Britannian and yet you choose to protect that monster!
Kallen Közuki: No, that's incorrect. I'm Japanese, Nina.
Nina Einstein: No, you're not. You're an Eleven! You're an Eleven and you pretended to be my FRIEND?!! GIVE HER BACK TO ME!!! GIVE BACK PRINCESS EUPHEMIA!!! I NEEDED HER, SHE WAS A GODDESS TO ME!!!

(Zero, Kaguya, and Kallen are surrounded by guards)

The Empress: Kaguya!
Xia Wang: Well, our wedding present has arrived on its own accord. My, this worked out wonderfully.
The Empress: You're giving them Kaguya too?!
Zhao Hao: Put that girl out of your mind, her crimes weren't of the death penalty.
The Empress: No you can't! That's wrong! This isn't Britannia!
Xia Wang: Your Majesty, the Black Knights are the ones who killed Gao Hai. Please don't get involved and leave the politics to us. Isn't that what you always done? Let's us handle things our way.
The Empress: But... She's a friend.
Schneizel el Britannia: Can we please stop this quarreling now? Today's the day of celebration, it is not?
Cai Lishi: But, sir...
Schneizel el Britannia: Miss Sumeragi, would you refrain of having Zero accompanying me to the wedding tomorrow?
Kaguya Sumeragi: I suppose... I don't have much of a choice, do I?
Cai Lishi: If that is the wish of the Prime Minister of Britannia. Then, withdraw!

(Cai Lishi orders the guards to withdraw)

Zero: So Schneizel, you appeared right before me. (Suzaku is protecting Prince Schneizel) Hmph, as watchful as ever I see.
Kaguya Sumeragi: Suzaku Kururugi, do you remember me? We're cousins you and I.
Suzaku Kururugi: Of course, I do.
Kaguya Sumeragi: We're the last remaining survivors of the Six Houses of Kyoto, aren't we?
Suzaku Kururugi: Taizǒ Kirihara and the others supported terrorists. Nothing could've stay their executions.
Kaguya Sumeragi: But this is different. Cousin, did you forget that Master Zero once saved your life. Do you plan to execute someone you own your life to?
Suzaku Kururugi: There's no comparison.
Kaguya Sumeragi: Oh, how sad! It's a good thing we're not able to kill anybody nearly of the words we say.
Zero: Prince Schneizel, would you care for a game of chess?
Schneizel el Britannia: Chess?
Zero: If I win, I like to have Sir Kururugi.
Suzaku Kururugi: Huh?
Kallen Kǒzuki: What?
Zero: I want to give him to you, Lady Kaguya.
Kaguya Sumeragi: Oh! How it will be a absolutely marvelous present!
Zero: Enjoy your anticipation of it. (Thinking) If I can get Suzaku out of here, I can use my Geass on all the others. A checkmate that will turn everything around.
Schneizel el Britannia: I'll agreed to you on terms. However, If you lose, I want you to remove your mask and show your face.
Zero: Agreed.
Schneizel el Britannia: What a fine evening of entertainment this has turned into.

When Shen Hu Shines

[the Black Knights have blundered into a trap laid by Xingke and are now fighting a losing battle against Chinese Federation forces]
Lelouch Lamperouge: You've earned your victory, Xingke. I should have killed you first. You're as good a tactician as I am, and as strong a warrior as Suzaku. One could say that the heavens blessed you twice.
[cut to Zhou Xianglin, on the bridge of the Chinese Federation mobile command post]
Zhou Xianglin: Yes, but the heavens didn't give him enough time to live.

Power of Passion

C.C.: The little devil grows up, huh?
Lelouch Lamperouge: And you're still a witch.

[Gino Weinberg, now a student at Ashford Academy, has just introduced himself to Lelouch]
Gino Weinberg: I am really looking forward to this… [lengthy pause] …senpai.

Love Attack!

[en route to the OSI command post, Lelouch is ambushed by a girl named Miya, who steals his hat]
Miya: I did it! Now I get to be Lelouch's girlfriend!
Lelouch Lamperouge: Of course. [turns around to face Miya] Miya, is it?
Miya: What's up, honeybunch?
Lelouch: [removes his contact lens to reveal his active Geass sigil] Would you mind very much giving me that hat back?
Miya: [is overcome by Geass] Okay!

Miya: Now I'm more confused than usual. What am I doing here?

[Lelouch is overseeing Sayoko's actions from the OSI's underground command post]
Lelouch Lamperouge: Sayoko, watch what you have me say, or I'll come off as being kind of mental.

[Rivalz is prowling the campus on his motorcycle looking for Lelouch so he can deliver him to Milly]
Rivalz Cardemonde: Prez, if Lelouch is who you want, then I, Rivalz Cardemonde, will give you what you want! My best friend in the world!
[Rivalz spots the Mordred flying overhead]
Rivalz: Whoa, that can't be for real!
Anya Alstreim: It is.

[Anya has just smashed through the library wall with the Mordred's fist, and Viletta is trying to talk her down]
Viletta Nu: Knight of Six, my lady! This is an operations area of the OSI! Please, withdraw your Knightmare at once!
Anya Alstreim: This is wrong?
Viletta: Yes, very wrong!
Anya: Wrong.

[Gino tries to explain the deployment of the Mordred at Ashford Academy to the Knight Police]
Gino Weinberg: This is a school for commoners. Things like this happen all the time.

The Assassin from the Past

Bartley Asprius: They say they're going to kill god.
Cornelia li Britannia: God?
Bartley: I thought they were speaking metaphorically. But now at the very least these people believe what they're saying!
Cornelia: Ridiculous! To believe in God... there's no such being!
V.V.: That's right. (Both Bartley and Cornelia turn to see V.V.) Knowing goddesses and long bearded white men in white gowns in kingdoms and clouds. No, not that sort of god.. (Cornelia throws a knife into V.V.'s forehead, knocking him to the ground. )
Bartly:(shocked) Princess Cornelia!
Cornelia: Who knows what type of Geass he controls. You must never let you're guard down even for a child!
V.V.:(still alive) Yes that's correct (stands up) Cornelia you do left you're reputation don't you ( He then takes the knife out of his forehead) As your uncle i'm very proud of you.
Cornelia:(shocked) My what!
V.V.: We made a solemn vow. If there was ever a God that made men fight each other. We must kill him and his divine rule.

Lelouch Lamperouge: Right I've send Jeremiah on ahead. He'll Take care of any obstacles in the way. Don't try to fight him. He just came over to our side (He runs up the escalator and then stops and sees someone lying on the ground in the smoke He quickly runs over and gasps to see Shirley lying on the ground with blood leaking from her body)

Lelouch: Shirley(He then kneels down to her seeing her chest covered in blood) Shirley who did this to you!
Shirley Fenette: Lulu I'm glad We can talk at the very end.
Lelouch: Don't say that It's not the end! (Takes out his cellphone) I'll call a doctor so just(Shirley then put her hand on Lelouch's cellphone to stop him)
Shirley: Ever since my memories have come back I've been feeling so very afraid. A teacher who wasn't a teacher. Friends who don't have memories to share. Everyone was just lying! If that was though the whole world was spying on me. That's the world you've been fighting for all by yourself isn't it. All alone. So that's why I why I wanted to be someone who would at least be truthful to you.
Lelouch: Shirley
Shirley: Lulu. I love you. Even knowing how you caught my father in all this. I simply couldn't hate you. Even though you made me forget everything i still fell in love with you.(She tightens her grip on Lelouch's hand) Even though my memorie were tampered with. I kept felling in love with you all over again.(Her eyes are about to close)
Lelouch: No. Shirley you can't die!(activates his geass)
'Shirley:(Overcomes geass) No matter how many times i'm reborn. (Blood started squirting from her chest) I'll keep falling in love with you Lulu.(Her blood spaterd on the floor to Lelouch's feet) I supose that it's simply fate.
Lelouch: No. don't die!( Kept on using his geass) I order you not to die!
Shirley:(Still overcomes geass) So is that okay then Lulu? ( seeing tears in Lelouch's eyes) And as i'm reborn. I'll fall in love with you over and over (She's still dying with tears in her eyes) I'll keep falling in love with (Dies as her hand falls into the pool of blood)
Lelouch:(shocked) Shirley. Shirley! (He still looks at her corpes wth tears still in his eyes and began to scream loudly)
Lelouch: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Geass Hunt

Jeremiah: That machine was made so that I could prove my loyalty.
V.V.: Jeremiah I thought that you had a personal grudge against Zero.
Jeremiah: I did because I thought he was a mere commoner preventing me from serving the royal family, but now I know who he is, and I know that by serving him, I am serving MY LADY MARIANNE.
[Lelouch and Cornelia prepare to strike the final blow on V.V.'s Siegfried.]
Cornelia li Britannia: Now you will suffer for what you did to Euphie…
Lelouch Lamperouge: …the source…
Lelouch & Cornelia: (In unison) …of Geass!

C's World

[In C's World, The Emperor and Lelouch finally meet face to face]

Charles zi Britannia: It's been a long time, Lelouch. My prodigal son.
Lelouch Lamperouge: Answer my question about eight years ago! Why you didn't tried to protect Mother? You knew the others were plotting against her! You know everything!
Charles zi Britannia: People are not equal!
Lelouch Lamperouge: What?
Charles zi Britannia: You have a unique form of Geass! A power that no one else possesses! Use it, to get the answer from me!
Lelouch Lamperouge: [Thinking] He's baiting me, trying to get me to use my Geass on him. But... If I look into his eyes, then he'll look into mine. His Geass requires eye contact just like mine does. So the moment I look, his Geass will take control of me and he'll alter my memories. What will I do?
Charles zi Britannia: What's wrong? Are you not my son? A prince of Britannia?
Lelouch Lamperouge: [activating his Geass] I have no time to make the wrong choice!

[Ohgi is waiting when finally he meets Villetta]

Kaname Ohgi: Chigusa.
Villetta Nu: That was the name you called me when I lost my memory. What's my real name?

[She points her gun at Ohgi]

Kaname Ohgi: Villetta. But that doesn't change anything.
Villetta Nu: I am a Britannian Baroness. No matter what the reason. If I don't erase the disgrace of my having loved a Eleven, I won't be able to live in this world.
Kaname Ohgi: I suppose not. If must die, I just wish it could've been in Japan.
Villetta Nu: You came here knowing I was going to kill you?
Kaname Ohgi: Everybody dies. I wanted to choose the time.
Villetta Nu: You can also choose to kill me if you want. Tell me, why did a terrorist save a Britannian in the first place?
Kaname Ohgi: In the beginning, I thought I can get information from you about Zero. I tricked you, kept you under surveillance, but while we lived together...
Villetta Nu: I'm your sworn enemy...!
Kaname Ohgi: But I still love you!
Villetta Nu: Are you insane?!
Kaname Ohgi: I must be, you are the enemy. But I can't stop myself from loving you!
Villetta Nu: [sobbing] I wish I never set eyes on you-

[Suddenly Sayoko appears]

Kaname Ohgi: From the Intelligence.

United Federation of Nations Resolution Number One

[Lelouch is trying to deal with C.C.'s amnesia]
C.C.: What should I be doing now?
Lelouch Lamperouge: Let's see now. Sing me a song while hopping on one foot and wearing your clothes inside-out.

[Suzaku attempts to apologize to Kallen for his mistreatment of her]
Suzaku Kururugi: I'm sorry!
[Kallen assaults Suzaku, her words punctuated by punches and slaps]
Kallen Stadtfeld: What the hell's that mean?! There's no need to apologize! It's either right or wrong! You think you can flip on the good-guy routine whenever you like?! Not when I'm this pissed off! Kallen Kōzuki's a soldier, not a sideshow! [scoffs at Suzaku as she sits back down] I'm mostly pissed off because you're not resisting. [pauses for a moment as Suzaku groans in agony] There. Put me to death. An inmate assaulting a Knight of the Round should be good reason enough for anyone.
Suzaku: No, I won't, because I'm the one who did wrong.
Kallen: [mockingly] "No, I won't." I HATE YOU!

Anya Alstreim: Memories that people have are always fake. No point in believing in them.

[Luciano Bradley, the Knight of Ten, introduces himself to Suzaku]
Luciano Bradley: What do people value most, Sir Kururugi the traitor? Their own life, of course.

[Luciano interrupts a conversation between Nunnally and Kallen]
Nunnally Lamperouge: I don't believe I gave you permission to enter this area, Sir Bradley.
Luciano Bradley: My apologies, Your Highness.
Kallen Stadtfeld: Well, so you're the Vampire of Britannia.
Luciano: Yes. It's a shame we're not on a battlefield, or I could savor your blood as well.
Kallen: Pity. So, you here to finish off the hostage?
Luciano: Not so. Hostages have only one value I care for. It seems to hold dear to life, and when alive, one can do anything he has a whim for…to its body.

[Lloyd, Cécile, Nina, Suzaku, and Anya are discussing plans for an impending attack on Tokyo]
Cécile Croomy: Huh? Mount the FLEIJA onto the Lancelot?
Lloyd Asplund: Well, the intention was for Suzaku to pilot the Guren, but…
Suzaku Kururugi: [surprised] The Guren?
Cécile: Sorry, he's right. I got so carried away I forgot. It's just, Lloyd and I got so wrapped up in our little hobby that we--
Suzaku: Hobby?
Lloyd: Rakshata's mechanisms are quite easy to tinker with. Now it's so souped up it can't be flown! End result, you're our little devicer again!
Nina Einstein: Excuse me, Professor Lloyd? Now that you've mentioned the Lancelot--
Lloyd: You wouldn't mix up a strategic weapon with a tactical one, would you?
Nina: I have thought it through. Any matter caught in the primary effect field will be annihilated by the FLEIJA's rapid sphere collapse.
Cécile: Hold on! You want Suzaku to fire a weapon like that?!
Anya Alstreim: He'll kill his own people. A massacre.
Nina: Suzaku, you don't consider yourself an Eleven anymore, right? That's why I want to entrust the FLEIJA to you.
Suzaku: You'd give me…that burden?
Nina: You were Princess Euphemia's knight, so naturally.
Lloyd: [spins in a circle before facing Nina] Nina, darling, a fine quandary. Might just kill Suzaku…and take you along as well.

[Lelouch, shaken significantly by the reappearance of Emperor Charles, returns to his quarters, where C.C. attempts to offer him one last slice of pizza]
C.C.: Uh, Master, I kept this last piece so you could have it. You left without having breakfast and must be hungry. So, please, if you--
Lelouch Lamperouge: BE QUIET!
[Lelouch attacks C.C. in a fit of rage, shattering the plate she's carrying and sending her to the floor; he then relents as he sees her bleeding from a large cut on her finger]
Lelouch: Hey--
C.C.: [starts cowering, thinking that Lelouch is going to start beating her] Forgive me, Master! I'll clean it up at once!
Lelouch: No! Leave it there! [starts attending to C.C.'s wound] Be careful now. You're bleeding.
C.C.: No, it's fine. I'm okay. I get cut up all the time.
Lelouch: [thinking] All the time?
C.C.: Bleeding feels even better when it's cold. It feels warm on your outside. It stings a bit, but only on the outside, and that's always better than hurt on your inside. It's just, any kind of warmth helps make you try to keep going. [Lelouch is visibly shivering as he holds C.C.'s hand] Oh, lookit, Master, you're shaking. Are you cold now?
Lelouch: Uh, yeah, maybe. Maybe I am. [C.C. starts holding Lelouch's hand as well] And the hurt on the inside…how's it healed?
C.C.: You just think of… [pauses as she tries to think] …some friends.
Lelouch: Huh?
C.C.: I've never actually had one. Not like families. That always comes and goes. I mean, someone special who stands beside you. At least, I guess that's what I've heard that friends do.
Lelouch: Yes, they do.
C.C.: I'm right? A friend will stand by your side?
Lelouch: Exactly right. A friend is always there.

The Taste of Dirt

The Second Decisive Battle of Tokyo

[Jeremiah in the Sutherland Sieg attacks Suzaku's Lancelot Conquista, much to Suzaku's surprise]
Suzaku Kururugi: Jeremiah, is that you?!
Jeremiah Gottwald: Suzaku Kururugi, I owe you a debt. I sympathize with you. I respect you. But in this situation…loyalty trumps all!
[Suzaku attempts to disengage from the Sutherland Sieg]
Suzaku: The Siegfried's--
Jeremiah: Take this! [fires a rocket barrage at the Lancelot Conquista] The storm of my LOYALTY!

[Gino Weinberg joins the fray above Tokyo, just in time to save Suzaku from Jeremiah]
Gino Weinberg: No one can defeat a Knight of the Round. No one!
[Gino manages to score a hit on the Sutherland Sieg, freeing Suzaku in the process]
Suzaku Kururugi: Gino, thank you.
Gino: Can't you look a bit happier when someone saves your life? [beat] Lord Jeremiah! So, what they said about Orange was true, huh?
Jeremiah Gottwald: Orange, you say? [chuckles] That is the name of my loyalty.

[Anya Alstreim ambushes Lelouch and starts firing the Mordred's guns at the Shinkirō at point-blank range]
Anya Alstreim: Which one do you think is stronger, your shield or my stark hadron cannon?

[Luciano Bradley gets ready to kill Lelouch]
Luciano Bradley: Here's a question: What do people value most? Answer: Their life, of course!

[Luciano finds himself under attack by Shinichirō Tamaki and his Akatsuki squadron]
Shinichirō Tamaki: Let Zero go! Or you'll have to deal with me, Shinichirō Tamaki, his best bud!
[Luciano fires a missile barrage from the Percival's shield, destroying the Akatsukis besieging him; Tamaki bails out]
Tamaki: [frustrated] Damn it! This always happens to me!

[Lelouch attempts a sneak attack on Luciano by firing the Shinkirō's main gun at point-blank range, only to find himself at the end of the Percival's hand-mounted drill lance]
Luciano Bradley: Just what I was waiting for, Zero! To go into attack mode, you dropped your shield! Now I will take what you value most and blow it away!

[Lloyd is despairing over the theft of the Guren SEITEN]
Lloyd Asplund: You thieves! That's mine, all mine!
Cécile Croomy: Oh, not quite! I did some of the upgrades, remember?
Lloyd: Oh, right, it's actually a collaboration. Oh, what am I talking about?! With a capable devicer, even at 60% output, that unit can cut the other Knightmares to ribbons!
[meanwhile, Rakshata is indignant over Lloyd and Cécile's tampering with the original Guren Mk-II]
Rakshata Chawla: That's the Earl of Pudding's work and Cécile's energy wings! How dare they, altering my Guren without my permission!
Kaname Ohgi: Still, now that we've got Kallen back in the combat zone…
Kyoshiro Tohdoh: …it will even up the battle!

Britannian officer: Sir Bradley, you have permission to destroy the Guren.
Luciano Bradley: Irrelevant! Killing is all one should do on the battlefield!

[Luciano and Kallen trade barbs while dueling over the skies of Tokyo in their respective Knightmares]
Luciano Bradley: Eleven! Do you know the prime truth of the battlefield? Kill a man off the field, and you're a criminal, but kill him on it, and you're a big hero!
Kallen Stadtfeld: So, the Vampire of Britannia wants to be a hero now, is that it?
Luciano: No, not at all. War allows me to officially take what people value most: Their lives!
Kallen: Some knight. You're barely a scoundrel!
[Kallen destroys the Percival's shield with a ranged Radiant Wave Surger blast; Luciano readies the Percival's drill lance in response and charges]
Luciano: And now--
Kallen: And now what? [shatters the Percival's drill lance with the Guren SEITEN's knife] That's not going to work.
Luciano: Ah, but now I've got you in close range.
[Luciano fires the Percival's head-mounted Slash Harken, only to have Kallen snag the cord in the Guren SEITEN's hand and then latch onto the Percival with the Radiant Wave Surger]
Luciano: What?!
Kallen: Question: What do you value the most? Your own pitiful life!
Luciano: You think an Eleven can threaten me?!
Kallen: Send a postcard.
[Kallen fries the Percival and leaves Luciano to die in his Knightmare]
Luciano: My life! My life is taken…by a lowly Eleven?! AAAGH!
[the Percival explodes and Luciano dies]

[Kallen comes under attack by Suzaku while Gino duels a Geass-influenced Guilford]
Gino Weinberg: Kallen. So, in the end, you chose the name "Kōzuki" over "Stadtfeld."
Kallen Stadtfeld: That's right, which means you and I do battle once again. So, should I be happy or sad about that, Gino?
Gino: [chuckles] Why don't we just enjoy it?

Betrayal

[Lelouch, still in shock over Nunnally's death, goes psychotic upon spotting the locket attached to Rolo's cell phone and snatches it from his hands]
Lelouch Lamperouge: What are you doing with this?! It's Nunnally's! I wanted to give this locket to Nunnally, not to you! To Nunnally! You think you could ever replace Nunnally in my heart?! You're an IMPOSTER!
[Lelouch tosses the cell phone to the ground; C.C. cowers in fear as Rolo sits there, despondent]
Lelouch: Haven't you figured it out yet?! I hate you! I loathe you! I DESPISE YOU! I've been trying to kill you, but I keep MISSING THE CHANCE!
Rolo Lamperouge: [still hasn't figured it out yet, even with Lelouch telling it to his face] Big…brother?
Lelouch: GET OUT OF HERE! I never want to see your face again! I said, GET OUT!

Lloyd: You need to make a choice Nina, do you abandon science to preserve your heart, or abandon your heart and sacrifice yourself to science?
Nina: How can I do either? Did you make such a choice professor Lloyd?
Lloyd: I didn't have to, I'm a sociopath; I was born with an abandoned heart.

[Even after being rejected by Lelouch, Rolo still comes to his aid nonetheless and helps him escape from the traitorous Black Knights]
Lelouch Lamperouge: That's enough, Rolo. I don't want to live anymore.
Rolo Lamperouge: I won't stop, brother, because of this.
Lelouch: Stop doing--
[Lelouch is interrupted as Rolo activates his Geass, causing an entire squadron of pursuing Akatsukis to drop out of the sky as their pilots are paralyzed]
Rolo: All throughout my life, people have used me like a tool.
Lelouch: --this, Rolo! Why are you still trying--
[Rolo activates his Geass again against a group of Britannian Portman IIs and destroys them with the Shinkirō's light hadron guns]
Rolo: I was used by the Order.
Lelouch: --to save me?! You know that--
Rolo: And then you used me, big brother. [clutches his chest as he starts to feel the effects of cardiac failure due to overuse of his Geass] Yeah, maybe you've been using me for your ends right from the very start. But… only the time I spent with you seemed real!
Lelouch: --I was only usi--
[Rolo activates his Geass once more against a group of Britannian Vincent Wards and destroys them with the Shinkirō's light hadron guns]
Rolo: It was… those memories… that finally made me… human!
[Rolo is forced to deactivate his Geass prematurely as he starts having breathing problems, right as the Shinkirō encounters a Britannian airship]
Lelouch: --using you! Rolo!
Rolo: That's why I'm not… [attempts to activate his Geass again but fails to sustain it and starts coughing profusely] I'm not… [summons the effort to activate his Geass one final time]
Lelouch: No, stop using your Geass like that! Do you want to di--
Rolo: I'm not… a tool! I do this… out of my own… free will… as a human being!
[Rolo carves the Britannian airship to pieces with the Shinkirō's laser, making good his and Lelouch's escape]

[After Rolo lands the Shinkirō, Lelouch asks him why he did what he did]
Lelouch Lamperouge: Rolo, why did you save me, after all I've done to you?
Rolo Lamperouge: Because… you're a liar, big brother. It was… a lie, wasn't it? What you said about trying to kill me, about… hating me and all of that.
Lelouch: Of course, and you saw right through me, didn't you? Just what I'd expect of my little brother.
Rolo: [weakly; last words] That's right, I thought so, 'cause I know who you really are inside your heart. I know everything about you, big brother.
[Lelouch places Rolo's cell phone with the attached locket in his now-lifeless hand]
Lelouch: Yes, you got it right. Your big brother… is just a liar.

Emperor Dethroned

[within the Sword of Akasha, Emperor Charles starts to set his grand plan into motion]
Emperor Charles di Britannia: God! Hear me now! The time has come to settle this!
Lelouch Lamperouge: You're wrong. You lift your voice to call upon God, but it's not God you need to settle things with, Charles zi Britannia.
[Emperor Charles turns around to face his wayward son]
Lelouch: It's me, your son!
Emperor Charles: And how will you challenge me? Neither gun nor sword will have any effect on me, nor will the power of your Geass! Nothing you can do can kill me!
Lelouch: But I don't need to kill you. By coming to this parallel realm, you've already ensured my victory.
[Emperor Charles grunts in surprise as the Kaminejima Thought Elevator is demolished; the skies of the Sword of Akasha turn dark and flash lightning briefly]
Emperor Charles: You sealed the exit?!
Lelouch: Yes! You, I , and the power of Geass are now sealed in this space together. And if you can no longer interfere with the real world, then all your plans will be meaningless in the end. You may as well be dead!
Emperor Charles: Lelouch!
Lelouch: This system, which you created, has become a prison which now holds your own soul captive. Now, let us repent… suffering together for all eternity!

The Ragnarök Connection

[In C's world, Lelouch finally sees his mother in real form]

Lelouch vi Britannia: Mother... It can't be!
Marianne vi Britannia: My, Lelouch. How you grown?
Lelouch vi Britannia: Mo... Mother!
Charles zi Britannia: Marianne, I see you come.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Is this an illusion?! You do this?
Marianne vi Britannia: No, it really is me, Lelouch. However, I can only take on my original appearance while I'm present within this system.
Lelouch vi Britannia: It really is...
Charles zi Britannia: Lelouch, I will now answer your previous question. Half a century ago, my elder brother and I existed in a Hell on Earth, our family were just rivals competing for the throne. Assassinations occured with regularity, dealing with betrayal and spawned by lies. Killing each other off, my own mother fell victim to it. My brother and I were sick and angered by the world, we therefore both sworn an oath: to create a world without lies.
Marianne vi Britannia: Both C.C. and I agreed to this as well. V.V., however...

[Cut to the Britannian homeland, eight years ago]

Marianne vi Britannia: What did you call me for today? I cleared everyone out of here, I even have Cornelia withdraw.
V.V.: Sorry to do this, especially without Charles around.
Marianne vi Britannia: Is this about the Sword of Akasha?
V.V.: Oh no, this is only about Charles. Ever since he met you, Charles has been acting like a different man. It seems to me that you and he have come to enjoy learning more about one another. You realize if this continues, the contract we made will never be fulfilled. I will be left alone, from the beginning of time it's always been the woman who led the man restrain.
Personal guard: Lady Marianne!
Marianne vi Britannia: I told you to stay out of here!

[V.V. pulls out a rifle and kills Marianne and the guards]

V.V.: [talking on a cellphone] The job is done. Right, Begin the cover-up, maybe we can make Nunnally act to be the witness. It's inoperative this looks like is the work of terrorists.

[Anya hides behind the pillar looking at Marianne wounded]

Marianne vi Britannia: Anya Alstreim, the young girl who arrived a week earlier to be schooled in etiquette. [Marianne use her Geass to transfer her spirit into Anya] My Geass power was which to cross over to another person's mind. The power that had been indoor for so long activated for the first time as I was dying. I hid inside Anya to save myself from being killed by V.V. and then I realized, realize when my consciousness has surface, I could communicate mind to mind with C.C. When she discovered the truth, C.C. left the directorship to V.V. and then disappeared.
Charles zi Britannia: I spoke with my brother about it, however...
V.V.: I heard, what a tragedy. I should miss Marianne.
Charles zi Britannia: [angrily] My brother lied to me! After we have sworn to create a world without deceit.
Lelouch vi Britannia: How dare you! Don't try to pass off blame for eveything on the dead! Nunnally and I... you send us to Japan as hostages!
Charles zi Britannia: IT WAS NECESSARY!!!
Lelouch vi Britannia: Necessary for what?! What kind of parent does that?
C.C.: If you have someone you don't want to lose, you should keep them at a distance.
Charles zi Britannia: That's right, I send both you and your sister to Japan to escape my brother's sight. That's also why I had Marianne's body secretly taken away.
Marianne vi Britannia: As long as my body still exists, there's the possibility that I'll be able to return to it.
Charles zi Britannia: Anya and Nunnally became witnesses, therefore it was necessary to rewrite their memories in order to protect everything.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Nunnally?! You mean her blindness isn't psychosomatic after all?! But...
Marianne vi Britannia: Even though she was a false witness, there remain a very real danger she will be killed.
Charles zi Britannia: To ensure Nunnally's safety, proof was needed that would lead foul way from the truth.
Marianne vi Britannia: The original plan called for only one immortal Code. However, for research to progress we had to have an additional Code. In other words, without C.C., we didn't have an 100% guarantee that it would succeed.
Charles zi Britannia: When Marianne was unable to persuade C.C. to help us, we were left with no choice. We were forced to use you, Lelouch.
Lelouch vi Britannia: What was the point of me doing this?
Charles zi Britannia: These tragedies will no longer be necessary once the Ragnarok Connection is established.
Marianne vi Britannia: Masks will vanish, then everyone can be exactly who they're supposed to be.
Lelouch vi Britannia: I see, all for battle and bloodshed between Britannia and the Black Knights was to lured around C.C. Well then, it seems that from the very beginning I was merely a nuisance, just a ruckus in the world. And what do you two think of all this?

[Suzaku and C.C. arrived in C's World]

C.C.: Did you already know that I was going to come here, Lelouch?
Lelouch vi Britannia: And that you regained your memories too. It was necessary for this plan, wasn't it?
Charles zi Britannia: Precisely, therefore I cannot see any sense in you coming here as well, Kururugi.
Suzaku Kururugi: I'm sure you can't. I'd heard that you're already immortal, that's why there something that I want to know for certain. Why did you make this thing? For what reason?
Charles zi Britannia: Why? Because it's what Nunnally and Euphie both desired. They wanted a gentle world.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Now I see, it's obvious.
Charles zi Britannia: The time is here. C.C., since we are all assembled, the plan can commence now. I will grant your wish after everything has been completed.

[Charles and C.C.'s Geass powers revealed the ultimate weapon, the Sword of Akasha]

[The Sword of Akasha is finally revealed]

Marianne vi Britannia: Behold! It's begun! The Sword of Akasha in slaying God!
Charles zi Britannia: Now once our marks of Geass become one, the old world will cease and a new world will spring forward.
Suzaku Kururugi: Lelouch, what was your motivation for wanting to control the world?
Lelouch vi Britannia: Don't waste my time, Suzaku. You know is for Nunnally.
Suzaku Kururugi: Or you're just using her as your excuse.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Yes, you're right. I am. I've fought to protect everything I thought I wanted to protect.
Suzaku Kururugi: If you're going to achieve that end, then you need to take action.
Lelouch vi Britannia: Yes, the means to that end requires to reject something.
Suzaku Kururugi: Which is?
Lelouch vi Britannia: That... I... I reject you! And I reject everything you believed! Why do people lie? It isn't only because they struggle against each other! It's also because there something that they're seeking. You now want a world without change. How stagnant! You can hardly call it life, the same as the world of memories. Just the world that's close incompleted. That's the place I wouldn't want to live in.
Marianne vi Britannia: But Lelouch, are you saying you're rejecting me as well?
Lelouch vi Britannia: That depends. Is your desire the same as His Majesty's mother?
Marianne vi Britannia: It will be so good to rejoin all the people of whom we are separated. You could be reunited to those who have died, even Euphemia.
Lelouch vi Britannia: As I expected. You both believed that this new world you envisioned would be best for all. But forcing good intentions on others is no different from evil act.
Charles zi Britannia: In time, the people will come to accept it.
Lelouch vi Britannia: That time will never come! Only one thing is undeniably certain, I understand now that what you did to Nunnally and me may have been done out of good intentions. But... the heart fact remains that you abandoned us in a foreign land!
Marianne vi Britannia: But we did that to protect you!
Lelouch vi Britannia: Then why didn't you stop the war between Japan and Britannia?! The plan was such a priority for you both and it didn't matter to either of you if Nunnally and I were alive or dead! That's why you abandoned us, all you have left was such serving excuses!
Marianne vi Britannia: Lelouch, you're wrong!
Lelouch vi Britannia: You just told me! You said that the dead would rejoin the living! You don't give a damn about the future!
Charles zi Britannia: The future is the Ragnarok Connection! Once it's finally done, the gentler existence that Nunnally spoke of...
Lelouch vi Britannia: Stop it! The world you're speaking of will be kindler and gentler only for you! The world that my sister wish for... is one in which kindness existed into everyone, even strangers!
Suzaku Kururugi: He may be right, at the very least Euphie never said that Lelouch was Zero. Even to the very end, Shirley didn't either. That's why I...
Charles zi Britannia: Let's say it was true, what of it? There's nothing to be done about it, the Ragnarok Connection has begun!
Lelouch vi Britannia: You think so? [activating his Geass] I am Zero! The man who works miracles!
Charles zi Britannia: Your Geass power will have no effect on me nor will on anyone else here!
Lelouch vi Britannia: No! There's someone else here, isn't there?

[Charles gasp]

Lelouch vi Britannia: That's right! C's World is the will of mankind itself! And all men are not equal, remember does words? They're your own and because of that, I'm sure you're realize that my power will work!
Charles zi Britannia: You're a fool, Lelouch! God cannot be defeated by the Power of the King!
Lelouch vi Britannia: I don't intend to defeat God! This is a request! Yes, now I know who I really am! God, collective of unconscious! PLEASE DON'T STOP THE MARCH OF TIME!!!
Marianne vi Britannia: [running toward Lelouch] Lelouch, you ungrateful child!
Suzaku Kururugi: Nobody would've wanted this! No one and especially not Euphie!
Marianne vi Britannia: And I saved you so that you can talk to Euphie again!
Suzaku Kururugi: You mean you were going to force me to, right?!
Charles zi Britannia: You can't do this, boy! Not against God nor all of humanity itself!
Lelouch vi Britannia: Regardless what I want... is TOMORROW!!!

[Lelouch use his Geass to bring down the Thought Elevator]

Marianne vi Britannia: It can't be!
Charles zi Britannia: The Thought Elevator is falling! The dream that I and Marianne and my brother all shared!
C.C.: Charles, just stop already. It was preseumptous to us to even attempt this.
Charles zi Britannia: C.C., we still bear the marks of Geass no matter what occurs we...

[Charles and Marianne's bodies are now being consumed by C's World]

Lelouch vi Britannia: This isn't a falsest, father. It's reality's response.
Marianne vi Britannia: Darling, you...
Charles zi Britannia: No, it's not impossible! I'm supposed to be immortal! We're being absorbed?! Consumed by C's World?
Marianne vi Britannia: But what about C.C.? Why isn't she disappearing as well?! You supported this plan as much as we did!
C.C.: Sorry. But I finally realized... the love you have... is only for yourself.
Marianne vi Britannia: No, that's not true at all! We loved our children very much!
Lelouch vi Britannia: You have any idea what the meaning is behind Nunnally's beautiful smile?
Marianne vi Britannia: The meaning?
Lelouch vi Britannia: Why don't you understand? Nunnally was blinded! My own sister was crippled! She knew... she knew that there were things in this world that she will never be able to do by herself! So her smile... Nunnally's smile... was her way of expressing gratitude!
Charles zi Britannia: You're laboring under delusion!
Lelouch vi Britannia: I will not let you call that a lie! Over my dead body! You're refused for the face of reality! Contempt to watch us from afar! Don't make me laugh! There's only one truth here! You, my own parents! YOU ABANDONED US!!!
Charles zi Britannia: YOU CLEVER LITTLE FOOL!!!

[Charles grabbed Lelouch's neck]

Lelouch vi Britannia: Suzaku! Stay out of this!
Charles zi Britannia: Can't you understand that if you refused me of what I offer?! You will inherited his world, Schneizel's world! Do not judge me, good and evil intentions aren't on each side of the same card! Even then, you still have...!
Lelouch vi Britannia: No matter what! I will always reject the world you envisioned! BEGONE NOW!!!
Charles and Marianne: AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

[Charles and Marianne are now gone and ceased to exist]

[The guards were about to kill Lelouch but Suzaku defeated all at once]

Emperor Lelouch

Reporter: 99th Emperor Lelouch, who ascended to the throne only a few days ago has ordered the destruction of the Imperial Mausoleum, which held the remains of past Britannian Emperors. Following his abolition of the aristocracy and breaking up bureaucratic cliche, and the liberation of the Numbers, Odysseus and other royals express support the new Emperor despite these actions.

Schneizel's Mask

Sky of Damocles

Re;

Lelouch Lamperouge: Lelouch vi Britannia commands you! Hand over the Damocles Key to me now!

[Jeremiah has sacrificed his Sutherland Sieg to defeat Anya's Mordred]
Jeremiah Gottwald: Memorize THIS! Memorize Jeremiah Gottwald!

Lelouch Lamperouge: Lelouch vi Britannia commands you! Obey me, subjects! OBEY ME, WORLD!

Lelouch Lamperouge: Hey Suzaku, Geass power is similar to a wish; don't you think? It is a request to someone to give you the power to achieve what you can't on your own.

[as he is being killed by Suzaku]
Lelouch Lamperouge: The punishment for what you have done shall be this then...you will live on, always wearing that mask, serving as a knight for justice and truth. You will no longer live your life as Suzaku Kururugi, you shall sacrafrice the ordinary pleasures of your life in benefit of the world for eternity.
Suzaku Kururugi: This Geass I do solemnly accept.

Lelouch Lamperouge: Yes... I... I destroy... the world... and create it... anew.

[last words of the series]
C.C.: I said that the Geass is the power of the king which would condemn you to a life of solitude. I think that's not quite correct. Right, Lelouch?
