Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS (魔法少女リリカルなのはStrikerS Mahō Shōjo Ririkaru Nanoha Sutoraikāzu ?) is the third season of the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series. The Nanoha anime was, in turn, a spin-off of the Triangle Heart series of games and OVAs, specifically Triangle Heart 3: Sweet Songs Forever. This season aired shortly after the promotional event "Lyrical Party III" scheduled on April 1, 2007.

StrikerS takes place after the epilogue of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's, aired between October and December 2005. While the epilogue connected A's to a world six years later, StrikerS advances the timeline another four years, where the main characters have gone on to work for the Time-Space Administration Bureau (TSAB) and come upon a new case. The series focuses more on team-based battles and bureaucracy rather than individual rivalry and school life, due to the change in character dynamics. The name StrikerS refers to an SS rank given to top mages, much like how A's refers to A rank mages.

A special sound stage, under the name of StrikerS Sound stage X will be released in Autumn 2008 on October 29. The story takes place 3 years after the events of StrikerS and continues the story of the 4 recruits of Section 6: Subaru, Teana, Erio and Caro, along with Vivio and the rest of the other Numbers.

New characters

Along with the new character designs, the series introduced new characters. This new roster includes:

TSAB

Private Subaru Nakajima (スバル・ナカジマ Subaru Nakajima ?)
  • Age: 15
  • Voiced by: Chiwa Saito
A young woman who appears to use the modern-Belka magic system and currently achieved Rank B, which is that of an average mage. Her intelligent device, Mach Caliber, is a pair of roller blades. She also possesses a second device, Revolver Knuckle, an armed device which is also equipped with a Cartridge System. The Revolver Knuckle once belonged to Subaru's mother, and comes in a pair, with Subaru's sister, Ginga, possessing the Revolver Knuckle for the left hand. Subaru was saved by Nanoha four years ago in a Lost Logia incident at an airport on Midchilda, and it was this incident that inspired her to join the Armed Forces. Subaru met Teana while in the military academy, and were paired up by their instructors due to the two being the only ones using non-standard devices. While at the academy, Subaru was also a victim of harsh criticism among her peers, due to her father being a higher up in the military and the assumption that she is getting special treatment. Subaru is extremely fast and strong, and had problems working alongside Teana during their training days as she had difficulty controlling her strength. Working under Nanoha as front attacker of the Stars Squad, she greatly idolizes her commander. Subaru is a bit naive about the military world -- for example, she didn't know about limiters or what a Lost Logia was -- which allows for exposition to both new viewers and those that have not read the manga.
Subaru, literally Pleiades in Japanese, is apparently named after two Fuji Heavy Industries divisions, Subaru and Nakajima Aircraft Company; her name is written in katakana format which is usually used for non-Japanese, as she is a native of Mid-Childa.
Private Teana Lanster (ティアナ・ランスター Tiana Ransutā ?)
  • Age: 16
  • Voiced by: Mai Nakahara
Subaru's pigtailed roommate. Her handgun-like device, Cross Mirage, uses a Cartridge System, and is considered a non-standard device, although she is schooled in the Mid-Childa magic system. The direction of the magic bullets that Cross Mirage fires can also be controlled by Teana. Teana is an orphan whom lost her parents when she was little, and was raised by her older brother ever since, though he is now dead. Teana met Subaru and were assigned roommates/partners in the military academy, and had been paired up ever since. Though she aspires to become a great Ground Combat Mage, her dream is to one day be able to take to the skies as a Sky Combat Mage. This feat will be very difficult for her because her magic ranking is considered too low and would make flight magic difficult. However, Teana is able to use magic to create illusions which is considered to be rare.[1] This B-rated mage takes on the role of center guard in the Stars Squad.
While the official website gives her name as "Teana", the opening animation calls her "Tiana". Her name appears to have been taken from the Nissan Teana.
Private Caro Ru Lushe (キャロ・ル・ルシエ Kyaro Ru Rushie ?)
  • Age: 10
  • Voiced by: Mikako Takahashi
A pink-haired little girl with jewels on her gloves (which may be a reference to Magic Knight Rayearth, as were the names of the Wolkenritter) that are actually a new type of device, a "Boost Device" named Kerykeion. She seems to have a magic circle that is light pink, but then it also shows that she has a magical square just like Lutecia. She first uses her magical square in episode 17 when she summoned the Dragon King to destroy. Though she is not proficient in attack magics, she is good at boost magics and can perform the unique summon magics. Her unique talent as a dragon summoner was frightening to the Ru Lushe clan, by which she was raised, and they banished her from their native land of Alzas. On the other extreme, the TSAB almost refused her because, though her talent was great, her skills were not refined. However, Fate T. Harlaown took her on herself. Caro appears to have a slight romantic interest in Erio. She is currently a Rank C mage, and is assigned to the Lightning Squad as fullback.
It has been speculated, given the naming conventions used for the other characters that are native to magical worlds, that her first and middle names together were modified from the Mazda Carol. There is also a motor vehicle named the Caro.
Private Erio Mondial (エリオ・モンディアル Erio Mondīaru ?)
  • Age: 10
  • Voiced by: Marina Inoue
A boy whom Fate takes in and cares for, and the guard wing of the Lightning Squad. He uses an armed device named Strada. It is a spear (electricity attribute), similar to Signum's sword (flare attribute). He uses the modern-Belka magic system, but is also able to perform some Mid-Childa mobile magics like Sonic Move. Erio was adopted by Lindy Harlaown four years prior to StrikerS, as Fate was legally too young to do so. He is being monitored by the villain as a creation of "Project F", also known as the "Project Fate" that created the character of the same name. He is currently a rank B mage and was also said to be an artificial human. Erio shows signs of a romantic interest in Caro.
Erio is named for the Ferrari Mondial.
Friedrich (フリードリヒ Furīdorihi ?)
Friedrich is Caro's dragon companion, the Silver Flying Dragon (白銀の飛竜 Hakugin no Hiryū ?), raised by her since he hatched. He responds to Caro's commands and can grow to incredible size. Friedrich, unlike familiars, does not talk or have an alternate human or kemonomimi form.
By Caro's request, he can grow into a full-sized dragon.
Voltaire (ヴォルテール Vorutēru ?)
Voltaire is Caro's guardian dragon, the Black Fire Dragon (黒き火竜 Kuroki Hi Ryū ?). He was first mentioned by name in episode 10, and is said in the StrikerS manga to be Caro's trump card. He is a fully summoned dragon, unlike Friedrich. Voltaire first appears in Episode 17 and appears as a humanoid-form dragon.
Ginga Nakajima (ギンガ・ナカジマ Ginga Nakajima ?)
  • Voiced by: Eriko Kigawa
Subaru's older sister. She belongs to Battalion 108 along with her father Major Genya Nakajima. When fighting, she uses the intelligent device Blitz Caliber which has the same dynamics as Subaru's Mach Caliber. She admires Fate for saving her from the fire four years ago. She joined TSAB in order to further investigate the death of her mother.
Ginga literally means Milky Way or galaxy in Japanese.

Saint Church

Carim Gracia (カリム・グラシア Carimu Gurashia ?)
  • Voiced by: Nao Takamori
A Knight of the Saint Church and a member of the TSABs board of directors. She's one of Mobile Section 6's supporters, and is viewed as a sister-figure by Hayate. She's a practitioner of the Ancient Belka system. Along with Chrono, she hold's the right to release the limiter on Hayate's magic. She is named for the Toyota Camry Gracia.
She uses cards to be able to tell the future of what will happen.
Schach Nouera (シャッハ・ヌエラ Shahha Nuera ?)
  • Voiced by: Kayo Sakata
A Nun of the Saint Church and Carim's personal assistant. She is named for the Mitsuoka Nouera. She can transform just like mages. She uses mostly wind attacks.

Scaglietti's Organization

Jail Scaglietti (ジェイル・スカリエッティ Jeiru Sukarietti ?)
  • Voiced by: Ken Narita
A highly dangerous criminal that Fate has been chasing for years, he specializes in Lost Logia, and his interests lie in "biological manipulation and control". He is responsible for creating the accidents surrounding the Relics, meaning to use them for an unknown purpose, and using the long-thought-lost Jewel Seeds from the first season to do it. According to Fate, he likes to toy with his pursuers, and is especially trying to provoke her and Nanoha. He was the founder of what would become Project Fate - Precia Testarossa created Fate based on Scaglietti's research. He was also the one to fully realize the Combat Cyborg project, which would lead to the creation of the Numbers. It is later revealed that he was himself created by the TSAB's High Council in order to bring these projects about, being given a mind of great intelligence and "infinite greed". (How he was created is left unexplained.) In combat he uses an Inherent Equipment on his right hand to manipulate AMF (anti magilink field) and bind/attack his targets.
His name comes from the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, which got its name from the Italian coachbuilder firm Carrozzeria Scaglietti.
Numbers (ナンバーズ Nanbāzu ?)
A group of 12 Sentoukijins(combat cyborgs) created by Jail Scaglietti as his personal task force, all named after Italian numbers. Each is gifted with a different Inherent Skill (IS), which is nonmagical in nature and is thus able to function normally within an AMF. As a result, they tend to work together with several gadgets. Furthermore, each Number carries a clone of Scaglietti in her womb which is set to develop into a fully functional copy of Scaglietti in possession of all the original's memories within one month of the original's death.

Key Characters

  • Voiced by: Natsuko Kuwatani
A purple-haired girl with a strange mark on her forehead, she works for Jail Scaglietti and his mysterious superior and client. She is seen in the opening credits standing on a magic square, similar to the magic square of Caro's Mid-Childa summon magics, and uses a jeweled glove Boost Device like Caro does. According to her profile on the official website, her summons are Belka-based, which makes her different from Caro who uses the Mid-Childa system. Her summons include the small robotic fly-like Insekt (インゼクト Inzekuto ?) and the human-sized Garyuu (ガリュー Garyū ?). Referred to in the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS Starter Book as simply "mystery girl". Lutecia's Boost Device is named Asclepius, and it has black and purple Boost Drives.

Season 1 (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha)

Is This What You Call a Mysterious Encounter? [1.1]

The first episode of the series introduces Nanoha and shows how her powers were first awakened.
Nanoha Takamachi: Under this great big sky, there are thousands, no, tens of thousands of people. All kinds of people with all sorts of wishes and feelings hiding inside. Sometimes, a person's emotions can touch and clash with someone else's. And there's people whose feelings can bond with another so perfectly, they can talk without saying a word. Well, this is a story about people like that, and what happens when they eventually meet. Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha is about to start!

Nanoha: I am the one who has been given a mission. Under the contract, release those powers unto me. Winds to the sky, stars to the heavens, and the unyielding soul to this heart! Magic to these hands! Raising Heart, set up!
Raising Heart: Stand by, ready. Set up.It's a veary good anime

My Magical Incantation is Lyrical? [1.2]

In this episode, Nanoha learns of the Jewel Seeds and starts trying to find and seal them.
Nanoha Takamachi: What'll you do when your powers come back?
Yuuno Scrya: I'll continue searching for the Jewel Seeds... alone.
Nanoha: I can't let you do that.

Nanoha: The way I see it, if someone needs your help and you have the power to help them out, there shouldn't be a doubt as to what you should do.

The Town's in a Lot of Danger? [1.3]

A Jewel Seed causes a city-wide catastrophe in Nanoha's home of Uminari City.
Raising Heart: Area search.
Nanoha Takamachi: Lyrical, magical! Search for the root of this terrible misfortune!

Nanoha: Now I can seal it away!
Yuuno Scrya: It's impossible from here, you have to get closer!
Nanoha: It's all right, I can do it! We can do it, can't we, Raising Heart?
Raising Heart: Shooting Mode. Set up.

Nanoha: (voiceover) That was my first mistake since becoming a mage. It doesn't feel too good when you realize that you're the reason for someone else's suffering. And when I decided to help Yuuno, I knew that, or I thought I did... From now on, I'll do better than my best. I'll give it everything I've got. This isn't just for Yuuno anymore, this is my decision, my choice. I'll collect every last one of those Jewel Seeds. I'll make sure that something like this never happens again.

This is a Town of Hot Water, Uminari Hot Springs! [1.5]

Even while going to a hot spring to relax, Nanoha worries about the Jewel Seeds and the mysterious girl she met.
Yuuno Scrya: Nanoha, go after the girl!
Arf: Do you really think I'd let that happen?!
Yuuno: I'll make sure it happens!

Feelings That Can't Be Understood? [1.6]

Nanoha's friends start to notice her preoccupation with Fate and with her activities as a magical girl.
Arisa Bannings: It just irritates me! It's obvious that she's worried about something. And it's obvious that she's trying to decide on something and that she's in trouble! But no matter how much we ask her, or offer to help with it, she won't tell us anything. She's lying straight to our faces about everything!
Suzuka Tsukimura: No matter how good a friend we are, there are some things that we just can't tell each other.

Is This a Third Magician? [1.7]

Amidst Fate and Nanoha's continuing fight for the Jewel Seeds, a third group arrives.
Nanoha Takamachi: Wait a minute... All I want to do is talk to you for a bit, Fate. I have an idea though. I'm not some spoiled kid, so if you wanna fight, let's fight. But if I win... Will you talk to me?

There's a Really Big Crisis? [1.8]

Nanoha meets with the Time-Space Administration Bureau and learns the full details of the situation.
Lindy Harlaown: On rare occasions, worlds are born that evolve too much, too quickly. When the pressure of that evolution becomes too great, they tend to destroy themselves through technology and science.

The Decisive Battle Above the Ocean [1.9]

The last of the Jewel Seeds are sealed away by Nanoha and Fate working together.
Yuuno Scrya: (stopping Arf) Hold it right there! We're not here to fight with you, we're here to help her!
Crono Harlaown: Are you insane?! What do you think you're doing?!
Nanoha Takamachi: I'm really, really sorry about disobeying your orders... but I can't leave her alone like this!

Nanoha: (silently) Someone to share my feelings... Someone with whom I can split the loneliness and sadness in half... That's it. Now I understand what I want. I want to share my feelings with this girl. (out loud to Fate) All I want... is to be friends.

Memories That Lie Beyond Time [1.11]

Fate and Nanoha battle for the last time.
Nanoha Takamachi: Try this one. It's a variation of my Divine Buster!
Raising Heart: Starlight Breaker.
Nanoha: Now with greatest power! Starlight... Breaker!!

The Time of the Sealing of our Fates [1.12]

The Time-Space Administration, aided by Nanoha, advances to the final battle against Precia Testarossa.
Crono Harlaown: You can choose whether or not you want to run away from reality, or you can face it head on like everyone else who's ever suffered!

Nanoha Takamachi: Chrono-kun, what’s going to happen to Fate-chan now? Chrono Harlaown: Even under the circumstances, she can’t deny that she was an accomplice in the dimensional interference. It’s because this is a felony. Normally, the punishment for this would be imprisonment for a couple hundred years… Nanoha Takamachi: No way! Chrono Harlaown: However! The situation is unique this time, and it’s clear that she didn’t willingly participate in the crime. All that’s really left is getting the higher-ups to understand. But I’m confident in my ability to do that, so don’t worry. The Time-Space Administration Bureau isn’t so cold as to question a girl who unknowingly committed a sin when she was simply trying to fulfill her mother’s wish Nanoha Takamachi: Chrono-kun, are you really a nice person underneath everything? Chrono Harlaown: (blushes) A-as a government official, it’s only natural to make such a remark! It’s not like I’m voicing my own opinion!

Nanoha Takamachi: You don’t have to be so embarrassed about it
Chrono Harlaown: I’m not being embarrassed about anything! What?! Don’t laugh!

Season 2 (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's)

The Beginning Comes Suddenly [2.1]

Six months after the first season, Nanoha is living peacefully when she is suddenly attacked.
Nanoha Takamachi: Lyrical, magical! Glimmers to be blessings, come into my hands. Ring and echo under the guidance. Divine Shooter... Shoot!

Nanoha Takamachi: Listen to me...
Raising Heart: Divine...
Nanoha: To what I have to say!
Raising Heart: Buster.

With the Broken Past and Present [2.7]

Fate, Nanoha, and Amy keep an eye on the Wolkenritter while the senior members of the TSAB are back at headquarters.
Amy Limiette: Oh well, I'm sure there won't be that many emergencies going on while they're gone. (sirens sound)

Vita: Hey you! Nano-something or other!
Nanoha Takamachi: It's me, Nanoha! Na-no-ha!

Christmas Eve [2.9]

The master of the Book of Darkness is finally revealed to Nanoha and Fate, and the final battle begins.
Nanoha Takamachi: So I'll be... a demon. (activates Raising Heart) Maybe I am a little demonic. But you're going to listen whether you like it or not!

Destiny [2.10]

Nanoha and Fate are attacked by the Book of Darkness itself as it seeks to avenge the knights
Aria Lieze: Chrono, release us from your bind. We can only freeze them in the few minutes when it starts to out of control.
Chrono Harlaown: But even then, the mistress of the Book of Darkness won’t be a horrible criminal who would deserve the punishment of being eternally frozen. That’s illegal.
Lotte Lieze: Because of that…! Because of that law, this tragedy has been allowed to repeat itself. Even Clyde-kun… even your father had to…
Graham: Lotte.
Chrono: There’s another problem with your plan besides its legality, Admiral. First of all, releasing them from that frozen existence shouldn’t be all that difficult. No matter where you hide it, no matter how much you try to protect it from everyone, someone will find it one day and try to use it as their own. Anger and sadness… desire and lust… Such wishes will lead people to it… to this sealed power…

A Gift For Christmas Eve [2.11]

Nanoha continues to fight the Book of Darkness, now in hopes of rescuing Fate.
Nanoha Takamachi: (addressing the Book of Darkness) Nothing is forever. It can't be. 'Cause everyone changes. Whether they want to or not, they need to change. Myself... Even you!

Book of Darkness: Just drift off to sleep, and you can live happy in that world for the rest of forever. A lovely, warm, never-ending dream.
Hayate Yagami: I can't. Because that's only a dream.

Night's End, Journey's End [2.12]

The battle against the Book of Darkness comes to its final conclusion.
Crono Harlaown: We can never change the past. What's done... is done! That's why I'm going to fight now, and change the future!

Nanoha Takamachi: All right, here we go, Fate, and Hayate! (those two nod) Now with greatest power! Starlight...
Fate Testarossa: Sudden lightning! Plasma Zanbar...
Hayate Yagami: I'm sorry... and good night. Echo, whistle of lasting closure! Ragnarok...
All three together: Breaker!

Season 3 (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS)

A Wish for the Pair [3.8]

What was supposed to be a simple training battle causes chaos amidst the members of the Sixth Mobile Division.
Nanoha Takamachi: I wasn’t at the scene but Vice-captain Vita has already scolded you. So I think you’ve already reflected on your mistake. I won’t scold you a second time. But Teana, I think you try too hard every now and then. It’s becoming a bit of a problem. You have to remember that you aren’t fighting alone. Our position in combat has us surrounded by allies. That’s why you made your mistake today. Think about it carefully and make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Nanoha Takamachi: It’s strange. You two, what happened to you? I know you’re trying your best, but a mock battle isn’t a brawl. If you’re just pretending to listen during practice and then being this dangerous during the real thing, then training has no meaning, does it? Let’s do it properly, like we do in practice. My training… is it really that wrong?
Tiana Lanster: (crying, screaming) I just don't want anyone to get hurt anymore! I don't want to lose anything anymore!
Subaru Nakajima: Tia...
Tiana Lanster: That's why I want to get stronger! (prepares a spell)
Nanoha Takamachi: Why don't you cool your head a bit? (prepares a spell) Cross fire.
Tiana Lanster: Phantom Bla-
Nanoha Takamachi: Shoot. (The spell nullifies Teana's attack and stuns her)
Subaru Nakajima: Tea! A bind?
Nanoha Takamachi: Stay still and watch. (fires again)
Subaru Nakajima: Nanoha-san! (Tea gets hit again) Tea!
Nanoha Takamachi: The mock battle ends here. Today, the two of you have been shot down.

An Important Experience [3.09]

The forwards come to learn about a near-death experience in Nanoha's past that influenced the way she trains recruits

Shamal: Nanoha-chan apologized to all of us for pushing herself too far and kept smiling in front of us, but having been told she might not be able to walk again, let alone be able to fly, I can’t imagine how she must have felt.
Signum: (To Teana) There are battles that must not be lost even if it means being reckless or risking your life. However, that time you missed your shot, was it a situation where you had to shoot even if you risked the safety or life of your comrade? Using a move like that in training, just whose sake was that for? What was it for?
Shario Finenio: Nanoha-san doesn’t want any of you to go through what she did. So that you don’t have to push yourself and to be absolutely, positively sure that you come back safe and sound, she has been training you with care, thinking about your safety the entire time.

Pain to Pain [3.13]

The real reason for Section 6's founding is revealed, as the division attempts to identify their enemies and care for Vivio

Hayate Yagami: (seeing a crying Vivio latching on to Nanoha) I guess there are some opponents even the Ace of Aces can’t defeat.

Fate Testarossa-Harlaown: How have you been, brother?
Chrono Harlaown: (embarrassed) Don’t say that. We’re both adults now.
Fate Testarossa-Harlaown: That has nothing to do with us being brother and sister, Chrono.

Hayate Yagami: To me, you’re the people who saved my life and my beloved friends. I don’t know what will happen to Section Six, but…
Fate Testarossa-Harlown: You already told us that when we joined. Both Nanoha and I chose to be here knowing that. It’s okay.
Nanoha Takamachi: Besides, getting me into the instructors’ squad and setting up Fate-chan’s examinations were things you and your whole family was instrumental in
Fate Testarossa-Harlown: So now we need to help you achieve your dreams.
Hayate Takamachi: That’s no good, we’ll keep helping each other forever.
Fate Testarossa-Harlown: That’s what friends are for.
Nanoha Takamachi: (salutes) Commander Yagami, I don’t think that you’re doing anything wrong right now.
Fate Testarossa-Harlown: (salutes) So it’s okay. Give us your orders like always with pride in your heart.

Mothers&Children [3.14]

The Forwards go out with the captains while they discuss dealing with the prophecy and the potential threat of Lieutenant General Regius's proposed inspection

Verossa Acous: (on Hayate) Rare skills, powerful magic, strong power and the authority to have other people serve her; having that power implies a degree of isolation. That’s what I think. Of course, she’ll be needed. She’ll be relied on. But not as a person, it’ll be the power she possesses being relied on. (pause) Of course, that’s an extreme case. It’s not actually like that.
Teana Lanster: Yes, I see. “Pressure and loneliness come with power.”
Verossa Acous: Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, well, I’m sure that a lot of things will happen between the commander and the front line members, but I’d like you to treat her not just as a superior, but as a person, another girl. Not just Hayate but the captains, too.
Teana Lanster: (salutes) Roger. The frontline members will do the best they can.

Pain to Pain [3.21]

The members of Division 6 fight desperately against Scaglietti's forces

Dieci: Using such a small girl to power such a huge ship, is it really something we have to do? I’m not really sure about this “Engineer’s Revenge.”

"Quattro: Oh, that. That’s just the Doctor’s excuse. Doesn’t mean a thing.

Dieci: Really?
Quattro: He’s always had one goal: The completion of biomanipulation technology and the creation of a space to do that. The Cradle is here to make that dream a reality. Well, I’m sure a minimum of several thousand people are going to die here, but it won’t even take a hundred years to make up for that. The Doctor’s research is here to save people! What’s wrong, Dieci-chan? Have you stopped beliieving in your big sister and the Doctor?
Dieci: No, that’s not it. Not at all, but… when I see such a weak small life, living and moving like this, I think that maybe they don’t have anything to do with it.
Quattro: Before you saw them, you could easily pull the trigger, right?
Dieci: Sorry, I just got distracted for a second.
Quattro: Really?
Dieci: I’ll do as I was ordered. If I don’t, it’ll be bad for my sisters on the ground.

Quattro: (thinks) Stupid Dieci-chan, you’re a boring girl like Cinque and Sei. A weak life that can’t do anything is no different than an insect’s. No matter how many you kill, more will keep being born. Playing with them and abusing them, throwing them into a cage and watchng them suffer, it’s so much fun! Right?


Lutecia Alpine: Zest will be gone soon. Agito will go somewhere too, I’m sure. But when this festival is over, Doctor, Uno and the others will look for XI for me. Then my mom will come back. Then I won’t be unhappy anymore.
Caro ru Lushe: That’s not true!
Lutecia Alpine : I don’t like talking to you.
Caro ru Lushe: If you want to be happy, then no matter how unhappy you are, you can’t make others unhappy or hurt them! If you do that, you won’t find what you want, especially happiness!

Stars Strike [3.23]

While the Forwards begin gaining the advantage over the Combat Cyborgs, Nanoha reaches Vivio, only for her to attack

Mach Caliber: You taught me the reason for my being here, my strength and power which you adore so much. Don’t make everything a lie.
Subaru Nakajima: (in a flashback) When a war or a disaster or something bad happens, I want to be able to save people who are sad, in pain, and shouting “Save me!” To take them straight to somewhere safe by my own power. (thinking in the present) To be honest, I’m always scared and uneasy about fighting, about hurting someone, my hands still shake. But this power in my hands isn’t to destroy, it’s to protect. The power to break through a sad reality.

Lightning [3.24]

Fate battles with the mastermind behind the entire incident while Erio and Caro battle the summoner Lutecia.
Erio Mondial: Fate isn't wrong about anything.
Caro Ru Lusie: If she's in doubt, then we will be right there by her side. If she's in trouble, we'll be right there to save her.
Erio: If she, for some reason, is wrong, we'll be there to scold her and then return back to her. We, all of us are here for her.
Caro: So, don't lose. Don't hesitate.
Together: Fight!

Fate Testarossa: Sorry and thank you, Erio, Caro. There’s nothing to doubt, right? Because I was weak, I was hesitating and worrying. I will probably always repeat this. That’s fine. Because all of that makes me.

Teana Lanster: I don’t know what you’ve been through, but if you recognize your crimes and seek asylum, I think you’ll be allowed a fresh start.
Nove: There’s no way that’ll happen. We’re combat cyborgs. There’s no way of life to us other than just fighting and winning! (Deed tries to get up but Vice hits her in the head with a perfectly aimed sniper bullet, knocking her out. Teana advances on Nove and holds her dagger to her throat)
Teana Lanster: Even weapons that exist only for fighting can laugh and live kindly. (Cut to Subaru holding Ginga in her arms) You may have been born a combat cyborg, but I know a girl who’s more human than anyone, who’s stupidly kind and tries her best.

Quattro: (hearing of her sisters’ defeat) They’re all complete losers. Well, it’ll all work out if I’m around? Right, Doctor?

Final Limit [3.25]

The final battles wind down to their conclusions on the Saint's Cradle.
Vita: If I don't destroy it, it'll hurt everybody! I won't be able to protect Hayate and Nanoha! If I can't break through that shielding, there's no point! So then, Eisen! Break through it!

Raising Heart: Wide Area Search successful. Coordinates are specific. Distance calculated.
Nanoha Takamachi: Found you!
Quattro: Area search? No way! She's been looking for me this whole time? But this is the deepest part of the Cradle. Nobody could make it all the way down here... (glances at readout, eyes widen) She's going to just blast through the walls? Oh Dear Mother of God!
Raising Heart: Clearance confirmation. Firing lock is cancelled.
Nanoha: Blaster Three! Divine... Buster!

Vivio: All my sadness, my pain, they were fake, created things. I can't be allowed to live!
Nanoha Takamachi: You're wrong. No matter how you were born, the Vivio that's there crying is not a fake or something that was merely created. She's the spoiled girl who cries all the time and can't even get up on her own when she trips. The girl who hates her green peppers, the girl who pats me on the head when I'm lonely... My beloved Vivio. I'm not your real mama, but I'm going to try my best to be. So don't say that you can't be allowed to live. Tell me your true feelings.
Vivio: I... Nanoha-mama... I love you! I want to be with you forever! Mama... Save me!
Nanoha: I will. Whenever, no matter what happens!
