Act 1Muokkaa

Strange New World Muokkaa

Samos: For every age there is a time of trial.


Samos: The rocks faced such a fire before they were the strength beneath our feet.

{A game by NAUGHTY DOG}

Samos: The plants braved vast winds before their roots could give us life.


Samos: As a sage of considerable years, I have known only one such great ordeal. Yet the hero it created was a champion of all time.

Kohtaus on Samosin mökin lähellä Sandoverin kylässä, jossa Jak, Ja hänen ottsel ystävänsä Daxter, Sekä Keira Ja samos ovat lähellä suurta konetta.

Samos: Today's the big day, Jak. I hope you are prepared, for whatever happens.

Keira: I think I figured out most of this machine. It interacts somehow with that large Precursor Ring. I just hope we didn't break anything moving it here to the lab.

Daxter: Easy for you to say! We did all the heavy lifting!

He goes towards the control panel, and tried to touch a part of the machine, but...

Samos: Daxter! Don't touch anything! Though the Precursors vanished long ago, the artifacts they left behind can still do great harm.

Keira: Or great good! If you figure out how to use them.

Samos: I've had some experience with such things. I know you can make it work.

Jak brings his hand out, and touches a red ruby in the machine. Then, next to him, a square-based device next to him opens up and shows a bright light with spinning symbols inside the gap created.

Daxter: Looks like Jak's still got the mojo!

Keira: Interesting... it appears to be reading out some preset coordinates.

Then, something started to shake, and the ring starts to spin before some of the bridge leading to the hut starts to break away, and the skies turn purple.

Daxter: Wow, look at that!

Tuntematon ääni (Metal Kor): Finally! The last Rift Gate has been opened!

Ringistä lentää Metal Head olentoja Sandover villageen.

Daxter: Aaaaargh! What are those things?!

Samos: So THIS is how it happened...

Metal kor.

Unknown Monster: You cannot hide from me boy!

Keira: Do something, Jak!

Daxter: (Painelee nappeja) What's this do? Or that! How 'bout this thing! Everybody, press all the buttons!

Jak hits a red button with his thumb, sending the rift rider into the rift gate. Now, they are moving quite fast from a purple spiral.

Keira: What was that thing?!

Samos: Hang on everyone!

Daxter: YYAAAAAAHHHHHH! I want off this thing!!!!!

Then... the machine explodes, branching Samos and Keira, and Jak and Daxter, far apart from each other.


Samos: Find yourself, Jak!

The pair then find their way out of the portal, and down towards a city, with a crash landing for the pair. They looked around, and see metallic structures everywhere. This left an angry face shown on Daxter, whom tossed a lead pipe he was holding on his hand down to the ground.

Daxter: Okay, I swear that's the last time I ever, EVER, touch any stupid Precursor crap!

Then, from in front of them, a bunch of soldiers show up, lead by Erol, a sleek man with spiked hair only just hidden by his armor.

Soldier: There he is. Move in.

They stop in front of them both.

Soldier: Step away from the animal!

Daxter: YYAAAAHHHH!!!!!

He runs between Erol`s legs, and scurries far away from them all.

Erol: Forget the rat. The Baron wants him! We've been waiting for you!

One of the soldiers brings his gun back, and slamms it into Jak's head, causing the screen to turn black.

Daxter: Don't worry Jak! I'll save you before you know it!


The scene then changes to a prison-like area, and this is where we see a completely reformed Jak with sleeker hair and a goatee on him, strapped to a torturing chair, where a Dark Eco Injection System is seen injecting him with the last doesage of Dark Eco. Surrounding him are two figures - Erol again, and the ruler of the city and game villain, Baron Praxis.

Computer voice: Dark Eco injection cycle complete. Bio readings nominal and unchanged.

Praxis: Hhhppp. Nothing! I was informed that this one might be different!

Erol: He is surprisingly resistant to your 'experiments' Baron Praxis. I fear the Dark Warrior program has failed.

Praxis: Aaaagh! You should at least be dead with all the Dark Eco I've pumped into you!

Erol: What now? Metal Head armies are pressing their attacks. Without a new weapon, my men cannot hold them off forever!

Praxis: Aaggh, I will not be remembered as the man who lost this city to those vile creatures! Move forward with the final plan! And finish off this 'thing' tonight!

Erol: As you wish. (leans towards Jak) I'll be back later...

The pair leaves the scene. Then... a small platform rises from down below, showing Daxter standing on it.

Daxter: Ding, ding... Third floor... Body chains, roach food, torture devices.

He jumps onto Jak, landing on both feet.

Daxter: Hey buddy... you seen any heroes around here? (shocked by Jak's look) WHOA! What'd they do to you? Jak, it's me... Daxter!

Jak takes a look at him with gazing eyes.

Daxter: That's a fine hello! I've been crawling around in this place risking my tail, literally, to save you! I've been looking for you for two years! Say something! Just this once!!

Jak: I'm gonna kill Praxis!

Daxter: Shhhhhh! Right now, we gotta get you outta here.

He jumps towards Jak's left hand, looking down at his strapped position.

Daxter: Just let me figure out how to open the security locks for your chair so...


He changes into a dark looking form, to be known later as Dark Jak, and brakes himself out of the chair.

Daxter: Or aaah... you could do it.

Jak then starts approaching Daxter with vileness brought on his face.

Daxter: Jak? Easy now. Easy buddy. It's, it's your old pal Daxter remember?


He tries to attack, but... he came to a stop.

Jak: Daxter?

Then, he changed back to his normal form.

Daxter: What the heck was that?! Sheesh, remind me not to piss you off! Come on tall, dark and gruesome. We're outta here!

The pair leave the platform together.

Daxter: I, uh, brought you some new threads. Put 'em on.

And so he does.

Meeting Kor and the KidEditBefore long, the pair escape from the prison and out an opening. As soon as they are out, they end up coming across an old man with a young child.

Man: Hello strangers. My name is Kor. May I help...

Jak: You look like a reasonably smart man. I want information! Where the Hell am I?

Daxter: (looks at the child) Aaah... sorry! He's new to the whole conversation thing.

Kor: Well, my angry young friend, you are a 'guest' of his 'majesty' Baron Praxis, the ruler of 'glorious' Haven City.

Jak: I was just a 'guest' in the good Baron's prison.

Kor: Inside a cell or inside the city... walls surround us both. We are all his prisoners.

When he stops speaking, the sound of armored footsteps are heard.

Kor: Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I'd move on if I were you.

They look ahead, and see a bunch of red armored guards coming towards them.

Guard: By order of his eminence, the Grand Protector of Haven City, Baron Praxis, everyone in this section is hereby under arrest for suspicion of harboring underground fugitives. Surrender and die!

Daxter: Aaah, excuse me sir, don't you mean surrender, OR DIE!?

Kor: Not in this city! Protect us from these guards, and I'll introduce you to someone who could help you!

The UndergroundEditJak goes to fight the guards off and halfway through the fight, he ends up transforming to his Dark Jak form. After all the guards are gone, he changes back.

Daxter: That was cool! Do it again!

Jak: Something's happening to me... Something he did... I can't... control it.

Kor: Very impressive.

Daxter: Ehh, you okay Jak?

Kor: What you just did was very brave. This child is important.

Daxter: This kid? He looks kinda... scruffy.

From nearby, a guard flew towards them in a hovering vehicle.

Guard: You are in a restricted zone. Move along.

And then he flies away.

Kor: Thank you for your help, but I must get this boy to safety.

Daxter: Hey! What about us?

Kor: There is an underground group raging war against Baron Praxis. Its leader, the Shadow, could use fighters like you! Go to the slums. Find a dead-end alley near the city wall. Ask for Torn. He can help you.

They went over to the underground area... and were instantly blocked by a blonde haired girl.

Jak: We're looking for a guy named Torn. Kor sent us... um...

A figure with sleek auburn hair, similar clothing to Jak and gray marks across his face comes into view.

Jak: Are you... Torn?

Daxter: Maybe this guy's a mute, like you used to be...

Torn: New faces make me nervous. Word is you're out to join the fight for the city. You know, picking the wrong side could be... unhealthy.

Jak: We want to see the Shadow.

Torn: Huh, huh, huh. Not likely. If you want to join something, why don't you and your pet go join the circus? Heh. Unless you got the fur for a really tough task?

He brings his hand behind his back, and pulls out a short but wide blade in the shape of a crescent.

Torn: Steal the Baron's banner from the top of the Ruined Tower and bring it back to me. Then maybe we'll talk.

The BannerEditThey leave and retrieve the banner from Dead Town. But upon removing it, the floor crumbles underneath them and they fall down the tower.


He rebounds off a fabric shelter.


At this point, Jak starts grinding down a rope, while Daxter lands on it with his crotch.


He bounces off while Jak lands safely and shows the banner to Torn. Daxter lands on his stomach to the right of Jak. Behind them, the tower crumbles apart.

Torn: Yeah. I guess you guys are in.

Daxter Gets a MouthfulEditThe two return to the underground, looking refreshed.

Daxter: Whew... being a big hero sure makes ya thirsty!

He takes a hold of a lever, pulls it, opens his mouth to begin drinking from a nearby pipe.

Daxter: Grrrrrhhhh...

But... in an instant, he spits out the contents of the pipe, which isn't water but brown sludge.

Torn: The Baron turned off all water to the slums. He's willing to sacrifice innocent lives just to destroy the underground. I shouldn't be surprised. I've seen his evil before, while serving in the Krimzon Guard. That's why I quit.

Jak: You were a Krimzon Guard? Huh. Oh, that explains your... charming sense of humor.

Torn: My friend in the Guard tells me the valve to turn the water back on is located outside the city, at the Pumping Station.

Jak: Outside the city? What about the security walls?

Daxter: What about the Metal Heads?! It ain't no petting zoo out there... peeps be getting deep-sixed!

Torn: Find the large drain pipe in the north wall. It'll take you outside the city to the Pumping Station. Get to the main valve and open it. If you survive, the slums will be indebted to you. If not, maybe we'll have a touching moment of silence in your honor.

Daxter: I'd like to give him a 'touching moment'.

He gives out a smirk, before he and Jak head to the Pumping Station.

Daxter Rides the PipeEditAfter traversing the Pumping Station, duo reach the valve.

Daxter: Aaah, the valve. Allow me.

He struggles tremendously to turn the valve, while Jak, after watching; gives it a quick hammer turning the valve easily. Daxter is sucked up the pipe and screams as he continues to make progress to the other side of the path set for him... which was shown by a hose blocking his way out.

Daxter (stuck): Jak, help... Jak, help... Jak... please... help...

Jak then reaches the hose and turns the valve there. Leaving Daxter to gradually pull himself out, before being forced to the ground by a flow of water. Jak can't help but grin.

Daxter: Don't say it. Don't even chuckle! Next time, YOU turn the valve.

Torn and the Ammo DumpEditThey return to the underground, going downstairs at a lighter pace this time. Once there, they see Torn again standing over a table.

Torn: The slum's water is back on! I'd love to see the heads roll when the Baron finds out!

Jak: Yeah, I'm sure he's losing lots of sleep over this 'arm-pit' of the city. We've done what you've asked. Now, when do we see the Shadow?

Torn: When I say so, IF I say so! But before I even think about it, I want you to take care of an ammo dump we've I.D'd in the Fortress. Lots of Krimzon Guards, constant patrols. We know it's vulnerable, and the Underground needs YOU to blow up all the ammo you find inside.

As he speaks, he knocks Daxter across the table.

Torn: Get ALL of it, and we'll deal a body blow to the Baron.

Daxter: You're sending US in, tough guy! So what's with this "we'll deal a body blow" stuff?

Jak: That's fine. I want the Baron to know that it's ME who's hurting him.

Metal Heads in the City?EditThey reach the fortress and are chased by a security tank. Sooner or later, they reach a large room filled with crates - The Ammo Dump. Over there, a card is found near the entrance.

Daxter: Cool! That's a security pass. We need those to get through city check points!

Then... the sound of a clank and a bunch of footsteps are heard.

Daxter: Shhh.

They go towards a grate, and look down to see two guards coming towards a pair of Metal Heads on the floor beneath.

Guard: These barrels are the latest shipment of eco. The Baron says take them and get out!

The creatures growl at them, but the guards bring out their guns and aim at them.

Jak: Metal Heads in the city? Why are the guards giving them Eco?

Before an answer came... the sound of a whirr is heard. The security tank comes back into view. They dodge the shots, which hit the cooling tower, and run towards the exit of the building.

Fire in the Hole!EditThe action goes into a slow motion matrix, showing them lead their way out while the explosion occurred behind them. due to the blast, they are sent into a roof and then to the ground. Almost immediately, Jak sits up from his position and Daxter pops his head out from underneath him.

Daxter: This place has too much excitement. We need to move back to the country!

They bring themselves fully up and head back to the hideout, where Torn is waiting.

Torn's DeliveryEditThe duo return and explain to Torn what they saw.

Daxter: The 'demolition duo' has returned! One barbecued ammo dump served up hot!

Jak: We saw something odd while torching that ammo. The Baron's guards were giving barrels filled with eco to a group of Metal Heads!

Torn: Really! The Shadow will be interested to hear that.

Daxter: You know, so far your gigs have been easier than stealin' grass from a sleeping yakow.

Torn: Hee hee hee... You and the rodent want to start proving yourselves? One of our 'suppliers' needs his payment delivered - a bag of Eco ore. Take the zoomer parked out back and drive it to the Hip Hog Heaven saloon in South Town. Ask for Krew - he'll be there. And don't let the Baron's patrols stop you. By the way, when you get there, pump Krew for information. He's wired into the city and may know what the Baron is up to.

As he speaks, he turns his back to the pair.

Daxter: You can count on us!

Torn: Are you still here?

Meeting Krew and SigEditThey take the package to the saloon, and head inside.

Daxter: Let me handle this, Jak. Watch my finesse and style!

Jak: Don't forget to ask about...

Daxter: Everything's cool. Nobody panic.

He head towards a muscular figure wearing lots of clothing and with black skin.

Daxter: Hey, big guy!

Then... into his view, an obese figure flying on a green cushion-like machine comes down towards him.

Daxter: You Krew? Well we shook the heat, and your shipment's in primo condition.

Krew: That's good 'ey, because a cargo of rare eco ore is worth more than ten of your lives, mmmm and of course, I'd be forced to collect... ah slowly. Heh heh. The Underground will take anyone with a pulse these days.

His attention is brought to Jak as he speaks, and then it is brought back to Daxter.

Krew: And what do we have here? The Shadow's mascot of the month?

He then starts to stroke him.

Krew: Oooh, soft... Sig, this fur would go well with my silk suits, ey?

Daxter: Listen, ah, tons of fun, anyone can see that you, uh, and I have the real juice in this burg. We're both players, right? We're both looking for a piece of the action, right? I think we can do business, right?

Jak: We did you a favor, now it's our turn. Why is the Baron giving Eco to Metal Heads?

Krew: Questions like that could get a person killed 'ey! Sig, pay 'el Capitan' here and his friends a bonus.

The man, being Sig, gives Jak the Scatter Gun.

Krew: If you want to see what that baby can do, try the Gun Course outside. Show me some skill with that hardware, and I'll hire you for a job or two 'ey.

They leave, beat the course, and then come back.

The Job OfferEditKrew: Excellent shooting, Jak! Ever thought about being a wastelander, mmmmm?

Jak: Can't say that I have.

Krew: Wastelanders find items outside the city walls, 'ey. Any artifact or weapon worth having comes through MY hands. Work for me and I'll throw you some of the sweeter items your way, hmmm.

Jak: Kill Metal Heads. Get toys? Sounds good to me.

Daxter: Slow down, Jak and the fat man; you two had better run that by me again, 'cause there's NO WAY I'm going outside the city to face more Metal Heads!

Krew: Sig will show you the ropes.

He flies away to the side, leaving Sig to approach them both.

Sig: So YOU wanna be wastelanders, huh doughboys? Well we'll see what you're made of when we get out in the thick. Krew wants some new trophies to put butts in chairs at the Hip Hog. So I'm gonna bag him five nasty Metal Heads at the Pumping Station.

Daxter gulps at this point.

Sig: Don't wet your fur, chili pepper, cause we're rollin' with the Peace Maker!

He shows a staff-like weapon to the pair, with a bright yellow light on top of it.

Daxter: Woooooh, I need one of those! Where'd you get it?

Krew: Don't ask. Sig needs someone to watch his back while he tracks the Metal Heads, 'ey?

Sig: We'll meet at the Pumping Station. Listen Cherries, don't you leave me dangling in the wind out there!

Jak: Let's do it.

It's Gonna Be FunEditThey meet up again at the Pumping Station as promised.

Sig: Hello Cherries. Ready to hunt a few Metal Heads? Follow me, stick close and watch my six. It's gonna be fun!

Boom baby!EditSig aims his Peace Maker towards a tank blocking their path. He launches a shot ahead of it, causing it to explode, leaving a shocked facial expression for Daxter as he turns to his partners.

Sig launches his weapon at the first Metal-Head in sight. He brings his hand into a thumb up gesture, and as it falls off the cliff, he brings it into a thumbs down pose timed to the fall.

The second Metal-Head is shot down and as it falls, Sig waves at it with his index and middle fingers.

The third Metal-Head is hit and falls towards a metal platform. Once it gets there, it rebounds and hits the water.

The fourth Metal-Head is struck down and it falls towards the camera, blackening the screen.

The final Metal-Head is down for the count.

Sig: BOOM! Home Team: 5, Metal Heads: Nothin'. That was the last one. Tell Krew we got 'em all cooked and caned. I'm gonna clean Peace Maker and pick up the trophies. Ya did good, rookie.

And so they leave the scene.

Meeting The OracleEditThey stumble towards a hut in the Water Slums and inside is a bronze precursor statue, being the Oracle.

Oracle: Greetings, great warrior. I sense there is a dark rage burning within you, and in time, it'll destroy you with its madness. Only the last power of the Precursors can save you. Destroy my enemies, those creatures that you call the Metal Heads. Bring me 25 of their skull gems and I will teach you how to control these powers!

Jak Gets A Dark PowerEditThe scene then shows Jak getting zapped by a purple bolt, turning into his Dark Jak form.

Oracle: You do well to rid the world of this Metal scourge. As a reward, I grant you a dark power.

Jak Gets A Second Dark PowerEditAnother bolt of purple energy strikes Jak, changing him back to his Dark form.

Oracle: The Metal Heads have always feared you, angry one. Even now, the Metal Head leader realizes you can destroy him and save the last chance for our race. You now have the control of another dark power!

Jak Gets A Third Dark PowerEditThe scene shows Jak getting zapped a third time with another purple bolt.

Oracle: Now that you carry the weight of darkness on your shoulders, you alone cannot save us. Our last hope rests with one still untouched by pain, and you must protect this young soul in our moment of truth. I grant you another Dark Power!

Jak Gets A Fourth Dark PowerEditA fourth bolt of energy is brought towards Jak and again, that makes him transform into his Dark form.

Oracle: The forces of evil are converging. Only by destroying their leader will we ever know true peace. All will be made clearer to you, as the ending gives birth to the beginning, in the great circle of time. The last dark power is yours!

Krew's Sewer JobEditThey leave the scene and return to the Hip Hog with the good news.

Krew: You boys are turning out to be quite useful, ey? Mmm, I have another task for you. The Sewers used to be a fabulous smuggling route for me before the Baron installed security devices.

Daxter: And before those late night snack runs kept you from fitting out the front door.

Jak: I bet you've hatched another 'brilliant' plan in that hungry little brain of yours. So... who or what do we have to shake down, knock out, or blow up?

Krew: Well, I need someone to go down and shoot every Sentry Gun in the Sewers, and I'd give you a sweet weapon upgrade if you succeed.

Daxter: Let me guess... Dank, murky water? Reeks worse than your breath at an oyster fest? Fuller o' Metal Heads than your plate at a one pass buffet? And of course, weapons more lethal than your 'ever to tighty whiteys' on a hot summer day? Look, donut hole, why don't WE float around here looking hot and heavy, and YOU go roto-root the pipes?

Jak: We're not doing anything until you tell us why Metal Heads are trading with the Baron's forces!

Krew: I should have had you both knee-capped, ey? All I know is that the Baron cut a desperate deal with the Metal Head leader. Mmmmm, Metal Heads need Eco, so the Baron supplies them with regular shipments. In return, the Metal Heads agreed to attack the city just enough to satisfy the Baron's continued rule.

Jak: Yeah, but how long can that deal last?

Krew: Well, the Baron is running short on eco, 'ey? And the Metal Heads are short on patience. Baron Praxis NEEDS this war to keep in power. Otherwise, the city would put the true ruler on the throne, wherever that little brat is.

Jak: Daxter and I will clear your sewers. And, we haven't forgotten about that weapons upgrade you promised in return.

Krew: Bloodsuckers!

What is That Smell?EditThey head to the sewers and blow up all the guns, before returning to the saloon. Once there, they carefully approach Krew from behind.

Krew: What IS that horrible smell?

He starts sniffing around from his spot.

Daxter: Oohh, great, we do YOUR dirty work in the sewers, and come back smelling worse than a wet hip hog in a warm barn.

Krew gives out a couple of sniffs, before leaning towards Jak's direction.

Daxter: This could have a serious impact on the lady factor!

Krew: No, uh, I think it was my lunch, actually.

They look at him with shock.

Krew: Nice work in the sewers, 'ey, I guess you're looking for that weapon upgrade, mmm? Well, there's a Blaster mod stashed in some crates at the Port. Find it, and it's yours... hehhehhahahaha.

Getting the Yellow GunEditThey find the gun on the floor. Jak loads it in and looks at it, with Daxter switching standing positions onto his other shoulder and giving out a peace sign with his right hand. Jak then aims with it with his partner behind him rubbing his hands in anticipation.

Vin Needs HelpEditThey beat the course and once done, they return to Torn in the Underground.

Torn: One of the Baron's mining operations is under attack by the Metal Heads.

Jak: That's not OUR problem.

Torn: It IS our problem when the foreman's one of the Underground's best informants! His name is Vin, and he's just valuable enough to save. Find the warp gate at the Power Station and use it to travel to the Strip Mine so you can rescue Vin's pathetic hide.

Daxter: Hey, Tattooed Wonder, how come we get all the crappy missions?!

Torn: Because I... DON'T... LIKE... YOU!

He pushes Daxter to the floor.

Daxter: Fair enough...

Torn: Whatever deal the Baron made with the Metal Heads, the city's Eco is almost gone, and his time is running out. If we don't get the kid back on the throne soon, there may not be a city left to defend!

Meeting VinEditThey leave for the Strip Mine, and it isn't long until they find a building with a red button on it. Jak presses it, to open a door to a small laboratory. And inside it, is a nervous scientist.

Scientist: Aaagghh! Stay back!

He draws out a small pistol, and started shooting outside, leaving them to hide from them.

Daxter: Do something, Jak! This guy's crazy!

Jak: Hey, are you Vin? We're here to help. Torn sent us.

Vin: Stay back!

Jak: Look, if we were here to kill you, you wouldn't be talking right now!

Vin stops and looks on at the pair.

Vin: Oh, friendlies? Oh thank goodness! We... so... whe... where's the army?

Daxter: Ah... we're it.

Vin: What? Just you two?! What do they think I'm worth?!

Jak: I'm beginning to wonder that myself! If you want, you can stay here and be Metal meat, but Daxter and I are leaving before those monsters get back.

Vin leaves the lab, and the three go through a Warp gate one by one. Jak and Daxter get in safely, while Vin trips up inside it.

Krew's Racing ContractEditOnce back at the city, they go back towards the Hip Hog, where Krew is seen with another task in mind.

Krew: I have a proposition for you, Jak. Racing is the biggest sport in the city! Erol is the undisputed grand champion. He's crazy and dangerous on the track. Haha. My kind of guy. Only a fool would dare race against him, 'ey! And that's where you two come in. A client of mine is looking for a fast driver for her racing team. Here's a security pass to get you into the stadium section.

He gives Jak the pass.

Krew: Uh, and your contract, with just a few trifles for me. I've ah, already signed your name to save time, mmmmmnn.

In an instant, Daxter reaches for it and started reading from it.

Daxter: We the racers hereby agree to give Krew all proceeds from race earnings, endorsement fees, broadcast royalties, syndications residuals, vehicle sponsorships, mall appearance fees, collectible card assets, fast-food tie-ins, use of likeness rights, talk show deals, clothing lines, all print rights including book, novella, comic, pamphlet, ticker tape, neon sign and bathroom graffiti designs...

As he speaks, Jak starts to feel lethargic, but still keeps listening. Then, Daxter turns a page on the contract, takes a deep breath and starts reading again.

Daxter: Toy rights, shoe lines, mood rings, game rights.

He stops reading and looks at the camera.


He brings his attention back towards the contact.

Daxter: Vitamin endorsements, city kickbacks, movie deals, and of course, all death and dismemberment accident insurance claims.

Krew: Heh heh heh... we can work out the tiny details later. If you can get from here to the Race Garage near the stadium in less than 3 minutes, my client said that she would consider letting you drive for her team. Make me proud, mmmm!

Who's Behind the Curtain?EditThey take the challenge and get there in no time. Once there, they walk into a race garage, almost empty.

Jak: Ah... hello? Krew said someone was looking for a race driver?

Suddenly, a female voice is heard behind a green curtain. Only her silhouette can be seen through it.

Mechanic: I'm busy right now. You must be Krew's new errand boys. Look, I don't mean to be rude, you did get here fast, but I'm not interested in any new drivers right now, and I've got work to do.

Jak: Is there anything we can do?

Mechanic: No! I'm... ah... working on a secret, ah... ah... 'vehicle project'.

Jak: Okay, sorry...

Mechanic: Listen, if you think you've got the guts to race in this town, try taking my prototype JET-board out on the Stadium Course. Beat the Stadium Challenge, and maybe I'll consider you for my team.

Silence then comes across the room. Jak is basically looking at her direction with a hypnotized look on him. Daxter walks over his face and starts waving his hands out in front of him to snap out of it. They then take the challenge and beat it.

Jak puts JET-board awayEditAs Jak is on his way towards the stadium exit, he places the JET-board on a rack and stands back and admires it with a nod.

A Piece of InformationEditThey return to the mechanic, whom remains hidden.

Jak: We beat the Stadium Challenge.

Mechanic: Great. People do get lucky. Listen, don't you have someone to collect money from, or beat up, or something?

Jak: You don't like us, do you?

Mechanic: You work for that slime ball Krew. What's not to like?

His attention is then brought over to a bunch of trophies near the curtain.

Jak: Looks like you've won a few races. Isn't it true the city champion gets to tour the palace?

Mechanic: Yeah, why?

Jak: Could you get me into the palace?

Mechanic: A friendly visit I gather.

Jak: Yeah. I'm a real fan of the Baron.

Mechanic: Okay. I'll help you out if you stop bothering me. I saw an old maintenance elevator at the base of one of the Palace support towers. That old lift might take you up to the palace, IF you can find a way to turn on the elevator's power.

Whine, Women and SongEditThey go back to the Hip Hog. This time, the blonde girl from before is seen behind the bar, and Daxter runs towards her immediately.

Daxter: Hey sugarplum. You new here? Well, whatcha got that's, uh, hot and... Wait, I've seen you before. You're with the Underground.

Girl: Shhh! I'm Tess. Torn sent me to spy on Krew. Play along, and I may be able to get my hands on a few of Krew's secrets

Daxter: Oooooh... I love 'undercover' work, baby! But ah, two can work better than one. Let me help you out.

Tess: Hee hee hee...

Daxter jumps behind the bar, and hides himself from view.

Daxter: Wow! There sure are a lot of bottles back here.

He starts consuming the contents of every bottle he finds.

Daxter: Whew! Ooh that's, ooh that, that goes down aah... Ooh boy, gee ya spose that's real gold floatin' in here? How 'bout this purple stuff? Glug, glug, glug... WHEW!

As he continues with his drinking, Krew comes into view.

Krew: Jak! I need you and the talking rat to go around and make a few collections for me.

Before he could continue, Daxter shows himself back into view, looking drunk.

Daxter: Hey there, five chins... how's crimes?

Jak can't help but give out a silent chuckle.

Krew: What's his problem, 'ey?

Daxter: Nothin'... I'm just fine... mind your own business...

He then falls onto his back upon the surface of the bar.

Daxter: I sometimes feel so very...

He continues to drone crazily, while Krew gets back to speaking to Jak.

Krew: Listen, I have six 'clients' around town who are about to make money drops for me. I need you to collect each moneybag as fast as you can and 'take care' of any guards who get curious, mmmmn. Get to a moneybag too late and some townie might pick it up.

Daxter: (sits up) ...DRRYY!... You know what's da trouble with you Krew? You got no vision... This place could be a real swingin' joint... Hop Heg Hiven with more dancin', more mac'n, more WOMEN!...

Krew: Just collect all 14 moneybags before they disappear and bring them back here.

Soon after he says that, Daxter gets round to kissing Jak's hand and blurting out "I love you man!" for no good reason.

Krew: If you lose even one bag, then don't come back, 'ey!

Quite the Money CollectorsEditThey leave and get all the money bags before returning to Krew.

Krew: Mmmm, quite the money collectors, 'ey? Here's a Gun Upgrade. Now get out! I need my beauty nap.

Daxter: Trust me brother. There aren't enough hours in the day.

They take the gun upgrade and leave the saloon.

Torn Has A MissionEditThey head back to the Underground, where Torn starts to look concerned.

Torn: One of my old Guard comrades was sent to the Pumping Station.

While he speaks, Daxter is pulling funny faces behind his back, alternating with the swinging light above them.

Torn: There's been no word from her patrol, and after what you guys ran into out there, I'm afraid she may need some help.

Jak: Did you say 'she'?

Torn: Don't even think about it!

He then catches Daxter in his mischievous acts, leans towards him angrily and stops the light from swinging.


Daxter: WHAA! That's right! Don't mess with the sugar!

Torn: This 'friend' of mine has helped the Underground many times before. Go back to the Pumping Station and take a look around. Render assistance if needed. Now get your squirrelly ass outta here!

Daxter pulls one final raspberry at him, before Jak takes a hold of him by the neck and they leave for the Pumping Station.

Meeting AshelinEditIt isn't long until they reach a high clearing in the station itself.

Daxter: Ehhh, what the heck are we doing risking our lives to rescue some old Krimzon Guard hag anyway?! She's probably got more facial hair than me!

Just out of nowhere, a girl wearing red, blue and black clothes, ginger hair and similar markings to Torn leaps down.

Girl: Who the Hell are you two?

Daxter: Mmm, I do love a woman in uniform! Wanna bark some orders at me... woof... woof.

He jumps onto her.

Daxter: I'm your soldier on the front lines of looooove!

He jumps off.

Daxter: Waiter, foxhole for two...

Girl: Keep talking, and I'll raise your voice a couple of octaves.

Jak: Easy... Torn asked us to help you.

Girl: I don't need help... but YOU might. We've got company.

Daxter Makes His MoveEditJak, Daxter, and the girl take care of the Metal Heads that surround them. Then, the girl makes her way back to a shuttle near her.

Daxter: Watching me take care of those Metal Heads was, ahh... pretty... exciting... wasn't it sugar?

She starts up her ship and the gust sends Daxter back a couple of feet.

Daxter: Hey, sweet stripes, gimme them digits so I can look you up sometime. We'll party hard, big city style!

Girl: Tell Torn, Baron Praxis is planning something big. I think it has to do with that symbol.

She points at a stump with a circular symbol with two eyes and a pair of curves above and below them.

Jak: What is it?

Girl: It's the Seal of the House of Mar. The founder of Haven City. We're being sent out on 'suicide missions' to locate artifacts from the time of his rule. If curiosity's worth dying for, you can ask the blind old soothsayer in the bazaar named Onin. She might know something about all this. Here's my bazaar access security pass.

She tosses it in Jak's direction and he takes a look at the details inside it.

Jak: Your name's Ashelin, huh?

Ashelin: We're even now.

She then flies away back to the city.

Daxter: Wow! What a woman! Arrggh!

Vin Wants Scrambled EggsEditOnce back at the city, they return to the Power Station, where they speak to Vin again.

Vin: Hey, I want to thank you guys for saving my butt out there at the Strip Mine.

Daxter: And we'd like to thank you... FOR BEING SUCH A BAD SHOT!!

Vin: Ah yeah, sorry about that guys. Ah, I'm a bit jumpy these days.

Daxter: Jumpy...? We haven't noticed!

There was silence for a while, before Daxter gives a frightened face.


Vin: AAH! Whatha?!... Whatha?!... Wha!... Whhoooo.. Oohh...!

With shock, he falls to the ground.

Daxter: Just kidding... nice reaction time though.

Feeling embarrassed, Vin brings himself back onto his feet.

Vin: Not funny! Those Metal Heads have been attacking our mining operations and we're running out of eco! Eco power keeps the city shield walls up, and if the shield drops... well, we can all kiss our butts goodbye!

Jak: I've got a few surprises for those Metal Heads.

Vin: You've got to keep the shield walls up until the Shadow figures out what to do.

As he spoke, Daxter climbed on top of one of the control panels.

Vin: My readings show a drop in eco flow at the Drill Platform. Probably some Metal Head eggs draining away power.

At that line, Daxter lost his footing and fell to the ground.

Vin: So, use the Warp Gate to go to the platform and destroy every Metal Head egg you can find.

Behind Jak, Daxter reclaims himself from the Warp Gate and swerves around before collapsing to the ground. Then, they walk out to destroy the eggs.

Meeting Onin and PeckerEditAfter that they make their way back to the city and inside Onin's tent at the bazaar. It has the authentic look of a mystic's home inside it.

Daxter: Coooool! Check out all the dead stuff!

He pokes a nearby monkey-parrot hanging on a rope, who slaps him back and speaks with a Spanish accent.

Daxter: Owwww!

Pecker: Touch the goods again, rat boy, and you'll be, arrrk, counting with your toes!

He flies over to a woman at the other side of the tent and sits on top of her large hat.

Parrot: I am Pecker! Yes, yes, I know, my mother, she was... very vindictive. I am Onin's interpreter.

The woman, being Onin, gives out various hand gestures and magical blue auras around her.

Pecker: Onin welcomes you, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah... the usual boring salutations. She says it is good to see you again, Jak.

Jak: But we've never met before.

Pecker: Before... after... it is all the same.

Daxter: Oh! Oh! Let me try! Aaah... she wants a... She wants a yakow bone! A yakow bladder! No... no... I got it! For many moons... she has... waited for... a juice pop? A jewel shop? Oh... oh... I know, she's got a hairball?! A hair lip? A hairy chest?

Pecker: Close... but NO! Onin says you seek answers... arrrkkk, about the Tomb of Mar.

Jak: So what do we need to know?

Pecker: She's going on and on about mystical energy channels, evil curses, stupid 'ooooooo' crap. Forget all that, I'm gonna sum this up quickly, because now you're cutting into my siesta time. Onin wants you to recover three artifacts from the Precursor Mountain Temple. Not two! Not four! THREE! Use the Warp Gate at the northwest side of the city, and bring back the three items you find!

They leave and collect the items.

Crushing the MachineEditFirst, they find the Gear.

Daxter: I bet that's the prize! They won't miss that one tiny gear.

He takes it from inside a large globe-like moving statue.

Daxter: Like candy from a baby!

He turns around and as he walks back, the machine comes to a stop and crumbles apart.

Daxter: No one will ever know we were here!

Good VibesEditThey leave and go for the second artifact: The Shard. Once there, Daxter climbs up to it and looks at it suspiciously before tapping it. Then, he totakes it, but... it causes him to shake.

Daxter: Wooooow. This puppy's got some vibraaaattioonn in it. This baby will put a smile on your face!

Daxter Gets BurnedEditThey leave and head towards the final artifact: The Lens.

Daxter: That's some peeper, huh?

As he speaks, they walk into the light given off by the lens. Upon stopping, Daxter starts sniffing.

Daxter: Something's cooking? Hmm, kinda smells like...

He looks behind him and sees his tail on fire.

Daxter: Burnt Ottsel? Aggggghhhhh!!!

He starts running across the room with pain. As that happens, the platform that Jak stood on starts to turn, leaving the lens to fall gently.

Daxter: Eww, whoa, hot hot hot hot hotoo oo oo hot hot hot hot hot oh oh hot...

Finally, Jak takes a hold of the lens and places it in his grasp. At the same time, the fire is put out from Daxter's tail.

Daxter: Eeehhhh...

Vin, buddy. We need a Favor.EditThey leave the scene and make their way back to Vin, whom is seen typing furiously on a nearby control panel.

Jak: Vin, buddy, we need a favor.

Vin: I can't help you with your eco bill.

Jak: We need you to switch on the access elevator in one of the Palace's support towers.

Vin: Sheesh, that's part of the old B-Zone power grid? It hasn't worked for years.

Jak: Well, if it's too hard for you, I understand. Power stuff can be tricky.

Vin: Tricky? Hmmmmmph...

He starts moving across the Power Station, typing at all sorts of panels and dealing with several buttons and triggers.

Vin: I could route the B-Zone conduit lines through the bypass grid, shunting past the eco rings to connect the inductor tubes in series, then back through the outer wall indicator helix and across the resonant flux routes into the number five capacitor array. Assuming the circuits in the GX75B can handle the surge, I could link the phase loop lines into the primary coils, and presto, you've got instant lift juice!

He finally stops messing with the controls.

Jak: Vin, you're a genius!

Vin: Eh, actually Mar was the genius. People said he made most of this stuff long ago - the shield-wall system, the eco grid. Anyway, to get that elevator moving, you gotta find and turn on all the old B-Zone power boxes located in the city. There are five of 'em!

Daxter: That doesn't sound so tough.

Vin: No. Except those power boxes are guarded by motion-sensing turbo cannons! But, if you can destroy the cannons, and switch the boxes on, I can do the rest.

Both Jak and Daxter make their way towards the exit to the station.

Vin: Just don't tell the Baron I ever saw ya!

They clear the task and go onto the elevator.

The Secret MeetingEditThey walk across to the roof of the palace and look down from above through a glass panel into to a chapel-like room, where Praxis and Erol are seen inside... with a hologram of a monster.

Praxis: I've told you, I will have more eco by week's end. We'll transport it directly to your nest, as promised!

Monster: A deal is of no value if you can't deliver, my dear Baron. I grow impatient with your puny gestures. Give me the agreed upon eco soon, or the deal is off, and your precious city will pay the price!

The hologram vanishes and Erol starts to show a face filled with anger.

Erol: He's toying with us! Let me lead an assault on the Nest before it's too late! I can take him!

Praxis: Patience, commander. No one has ever penetrated the Metal Head Nest. You know that! I've seen what comes of such foolish plans.

He brings up one of his hands and places it lightly to his head as he shakes it lightly. Before long, he brings himself back to his senses and looks on at the city view through the window, the rain washing down upon the glass.

Praxis: No! Strength is their weakness... We play helpless... We train them to eat from our hands, and then...

He turns around and faces Erol with a more determined look.

Praxis: Move forward with the plan! Tell Ashelin to up her patrols. I want that Tomb found!

Erol: But your daughter has not been... agreeable.

Praxis: Agggg... I'll see to that problem. One way or another.

Jak: (aside) Ashelin is the Baron's daughter?

Praxis: And find that child! If you'd spend half as much time looking for that little brat as you spend flirting with that mechanic girl, we would have pinned his royal ass to a wall long ago.

As he speaks his lines, Daxter starts to get into the edge of sneezing.

Erol: As you wish. With enough persuasion, I'm sure our spy will...

Unfortunately, Daxter can't hold the sneeze and lets off a mass of snot up on the glass. The sounds attracts Erol's attention.

Erol: What was that?!

As he looks up, there was nothing in view. Jak hides himself and Daxter away from the glass panes, with the latter having his mouth held shut.

The Baron Confronts JakEditThey both try to leave the roof of the palace, but... they are stopped by a large flying mech, and inside it, is Praxis himself.

Praxis: So, we have a rat in the walls, do we?! A rat and his boy it seems! Back for a few more Dark Eco treatments?! Well, allow me to put you both out of your misery!

I Will Destroy You!EditThe three then engaged in a fight, but... Praxis is defeated, with his mech hitting an electric barrier and exploding. But... he comes out alive, flying in an escape ship.

Praxis: The dark powers I gave you can't protect you forever! Since I made you, I can destroy you! We'll meet again soon!

And so he flies away from sight.

Daxter: Yeah, whatever. Bye bye!

What Did You Two Do?EditOnce back on the City grounds, they make their way back to the hideout, where Torn is seen with an anxious but angry face with Kor and the kid near him.

Torn: The city is on high alert. What the Hell did you two do?

Daxter: Us?!... nothing. We've been... ah... sightseeing, right Jak?

Torn: Really?! Then why are the Krimzon Guard looking for... "a dangerous young man with light hair, blue tunic, and a rabid orange RAT on his shoulder"!

Daxter: Ahh... Could be anyone. Orange is the new black this season.

Jak: Look, we've climbed up to the Baron's palace... and... we tripped a few alarms.

Daxter: Oh right... that too.

Torn: What? I didn't authorize a strike on the...!

Jak: Hey, we kicked the Baron's ass. Unfortunately, he escaped.

Daxter: ...AND we overheard a secret meeting with the leader of the Metal Heads!

Kor: You saw the Metal Head leader?

Jak: No, he was on some communicator, but we heard him talking with Baron Praxis.

Daxter: The Baron is bribing the Metal Heads with eco!

Kor: Hmmph... it will never be enough.

Daxter: But the Baron's gonna double cross 'em!

Kor: Is that so? Well our good Baron's wonderful 'charm' must have angered someone, because there's word from the Wasteland that Metal Head armies are on the move again!

Jak: Why didn't you tell me Ashelin was Praxis's daughter? What's your connection with her?

Torn: That's none of your business! Since you've stirred up the wumpbee's nest, you and whiskers here need to get four of our people to new safe houses. Shuttle each agent to a location they specify. Move all of them WITHOUT any casualties. Don't screw this up, Jak!

Protect the Sacred SiteEditThey leave and sort out the task. Then, they return to Torn for another meeting.

Torn: Scouts report movement in Dead Town. Creatures moving towards the Sacred Site. Just as before.

Daxter: What happened... ah, before?

Torn: Metal Heads broke through the old city wall. We fought them, but then the Baron pulled back, leaving everyone outside the 'new barrier' to die. Only the Shadow stayed and somehow stopped the attack.

Jak: And now you expect us to go out there again?

Torn: You catch on fast! If you prevent the Metal Heads from reaching the Sacred Site, the Shadow will be... most grateful. He might even ask to see you.

He then takes out a gun barrel and slings it across the table.

Torn: Hey, I'm probably wasting this, but here's a Vulcan Barrel for that pea shooter of yours. Believe me, you're gonna need it!

Jak loads the barrel into his gun and aims it with a smile on his face. Torn shakes his head with disbelief. Then, they leave again.

It's our world!EditThey get rid of all the Metal Heads before looking at the Sacred Site itself... which was a familiar sight to them. It is a hut with a wooden bridge, looking darkened and wrecked.

Daxter: Is that... Is that... No, it couldn't be... that's not...

Jak: It's Samos's Hut.

Daxter: But... What?... How?... When?... Where??... Why???!!!

Jak: We're in the future, Dax... This... horrible place... is... our... world!

Act 2Edit Meeting the ShadowEditThey immediately leave for Torn with the image of the hut still fixed in their minds, but... they are also given a real surprise.

Torn: The Shadow has decided it's time to meet you.

Jak: Why is that place in the old ruins so important to you?

Torn: There's a powerful energy force at the old house. The Metal Heads are drawn to it.

As he speaks, Daxter tries to take a peak over Torn's shoulder.

Jak: No kidding? We used to know the guy that lived there.

In Daxter's view, he saw a small green figure with a white moustache and goatee, and had a log covered with moss on his head.

Man: So, you're the new recruits who keep getting into trouble.

Daxter: Oh no, not you!

Man: Welcome to our humble Underground movement. I am known as the Shadow, but you may call me Samos. And you are?

Daxter: Sheesh Jak, we went through all that to meet his holiness, ol' log on the head, grandpa green?!

Jak: Don't you know who we are?

Samos: Sorry kid... never seen you before... and I never forget a face... especially one that ugly.

He pointa at Daxter upon saying that.

Daxter: So it begins...

Jak: How is this possible? We came through the rift with you... into the future... right?

Daxter: Yeah! You used to look older than dirt and uglier than a knotted stump. What gives? Did you get a little nip and tuck while we were gone?

Samos: Listen boys, I don't know what kind of twigs you've been chewing on, but I don't have time for this. We've got a Baron to overthrow, a child heir to protect, an invasion of Metal Heads to stop, and a city to save. I'd say the schedule's pretty full! Besides, I haven't gone through any rifts. I hate teleporting!

Daxter: Sure sounds like the ol' Samos.

Samos: Right now I need you to go to Haven Forest and root out a few Metal Heads. That forest is my source of power, but I can't protect it much longer. Chase down and destroy all the Metal Head scouts you find there. Good luck... and welcome to the fight!

Getting the Jet BoardEditThey leave for the forest and once they reach the city exit, a surprise is there for them: The JET-board.

Daxter: WOW! The Jet Board's ours. I call shotgun!

Jak picks up the board and puts it away, then the pair clash fists with victory. They can now take the board anywhere they want, anytime they want. They use it to eliminate the scouts as promised, before returning to the hideout.

What's This Kid's Story?EditSamos is seen outside with the kid and a green dog creature.

Samos: I want you boys to escort the kid over to Kor at the Power Station. He promised to look out for the boy, and I'm just too busy to baby-sit right now. Oh, and take the kid's Crocadog with you!

The Crocadog looks at Samos and growls.

Samos: Oh, hee... hee... isn't he sweet?

Jak: So what's this kid's story?

Samos: I found him just wandering the streets. But that amulet around his neck means he may just be the lost heir to the city. Take the kid and the mutt to the Power Station. Watch out for guard patrols and defend the kid at all costs. Oh... and if you happen to lose the Crocadog...

The dog growls at Samos again.

Kor and the KidEditThey take them both over to the Power Station where Kor is waiting.

Daxter: Samos told us to bring the kid to you.

Kor: Thank you. I'll be sure to keep him close.

The dog approaches Kor and growls again.

Kor: How sweet...

But his growling is halted when Jak stroks him, causing it to smile.

Kor: Interesting. That insufferable mutt never liked anyone but the boy before.

Jak: I guess I'm just good with animals.

Kor: I hope we have enough eco to keep the Metal Heads at bay. During my travels in the deep Wasteland I saw some of the bigger ones. Awesome creatures.

Daxter: We saw a big one coming out of a rift once. He was uuuuuuugly!

Kor: Hmmmmphh... I have some valuable information for you. The Baron is conducting an excavation at the Dig. He is still looking for that ridiculous Tomb.

While he speaks, the Crocadog has his back leg raised and urinates on the tip of Kor's walking stick.

Kor: Frankly, I don't believe it exists, but you might as well go out there and disrupt his operation just in case.

He raises his stick up slightly and shakes it dry.

Kor: Knock down all the scaffolding at the site. That should set him back. Here is an Air Train pass to get you out of there.

The kid gives the pass to Jak, whom leaves with it to the air train.

OutboundEditThey get to the train and stand up looking towards the city as the door closes. It travels over the walls, towards the dig.

The Landing PadEditThe ship lands on the pad, and they get out and head towards the Dig Site.

The Drill TopplesEditThey get rid of all the scaffolding and the drill in the middle spins around vigorously before blowing up into a wreck.

Taking OffEditThey leave the dig and get in the train again. Once in, they both sit down, the door closed, and the train leaves the scene.

Coming InEditThe train reached its spot in the city. The door opened, and Jak walked on it towards the paving nearby.

Sneak Attack bazzar !EditThey head into the market bazaar, where they met up with Ashelin and a bunch of Krimzon Guards.

Daxter: How's it riding in the hood, red?

The guards block them off.

Ashelin: Get out of the area. This is Krimzon Guard business! One of Vin's eco tankers is coming in from the wasteland, but the clearance transmission sounded fishy. The driver was scared. We're going to check it out. Just in case.

Jak: How can we help?

Ashelin: I've got it handled.

Then... the said eco tanker breaks into the bazaar, blows up, and take the guards with it. It remains still before a bunch of Metal Heads sprawl out of it.

Daxter: Ahhh! A Metal Head sneak attack!

Ashelin: Damn! It's just us! Help me take out all the grunt and juce goons\

And so they do.

Ashelin Is WorriedEditThe area becomes peaceful again, leaving Ashelin to kick a barrel before speaking again.

Ashelin: We got 'em all! The Metal Heads are getting bolder every day. It's almost like they're testing our defenses, like probing attacks. I've got a bad feeling about this.

And then she leaves the scene.

Jak: Yeah... you're welcome.

Krew Has Another JobEditThey move onto a mission set by Krew: destroying the cargo in the port. After that is done, they return to the Hip Hog with the news. Upon entry, a Krimzon Guard is seen leaving the building.

Krew: The Baron sent his goons to harass me as usual, 'ey! Health violations. Bank taxes! Everyone wants a piece of me. Aaahh well!

Daxter: Lucky for you, there's plenty to go around!

Krew: Destroying that cargo in the port was more important than you know, ey? I've got a new project going, and I don't need anyone snooping around my shipments. Let's just say, if everything goes as planned, I'm going to corner the market in Metal Head trophies. Ha, ha, ha, ha. Anyway, I have another job for you. An associate of mine, Brutter, works with me in the forced labor trade.

Jak: You mean the slave trade?

Krew: I prefer 'freedom challenged'. Lurkers are the city's low class labor. Brutter pays me handsomely to help him free lurkers and get them safely out of the city. Ahhh, it lifts my spirit to help those in need... and I NEED his money!

Daxter: Lurkers? We don't like lurkers!

Krew: But you do like Gun Upgrades, 'ey?

He tosses a black device in Jak's direction.

Krew: There are three Krimzon Guard Transports carrying Lurkers to a 'project' the Baron has outside the city. Take out the transports, and bring the three lurkers to Brutter's trinket stand in the Bazaar.

Meeting BrutterEditThey rescue the Lurkers and bring them to Brutter, who looks ecstatic with the result.

Brutter: Little orangey warrior! You have do great thing for Brutter and Lurker people!

He starts kissing Daxter upon the face, whom revolts at the touch.

Daxter: Eeeck! No toucha the 'do'.

Brutter: Oh, sorry... You great guys! Brutter not forget. Brutter pay you back. You see!

The Art CollectorEditThey leave and return to the saloon for another mission.

Krew: Years ago, when I was an art 'collector', I hit the local museum to, mmmm, 'borrow' a famous statue of Mar, the founder of Haven City. In his hands, the statue held the Ruby Key to the city, an artifact of surpassing beauty... and of course, priceless worth, 'ey!

Daxter: Oh! I just love art!

Krew: While smuggling the huge statue through the Sewers, 'ey, a grueling rainstorm flooded the whole place. The statue and five of my best men were swept away!

Jak: That's terrible.

Krew: Yes, a tragic loss. I've missed that statue ever since! The Sewers have been so full of water and Metal Heads that I can't get anyone to go down there and retrieve the artifact. But you're special Jak. You can do it!

Daxter: Jak? Hey, what am I? Chopped liver?

Krew: Ohhh, don't I wish, mmmmmmmm! Now, go down there, drain the Sewers, and find that statue at the bottom. Bring back the Ruby Key artifact, and it will open up doors beyond our wildest dreams, 'ey!

Jak: Great, more mucking in the mud...

Daxter: I hate to burst your bathtub bubbles baby, but that ain't just mud down there.

God I Miss Pants!EditThey drain the sewers and reached the statue. Daxter climbs for the key and after a couple of tugs the key pops out and falls towards the ground. Jak brings his hand down to catch it before landing.

Jak: Whoo... Got it! Where would you be without me, eh Dax?

Daxter: Well Jak, I probably wouldn't be two feet tall, fuzzy, and running around in a sewer without a pair of pants... God I miss pants.

We've Still Got TroubleEditWith success, they return to Vin in the Power Station. He comes down to them in a crate-platform.

Vin: Jak, we've still got trouble at the Strip Mine. I think the Baron set me up. Actually... ah, ahh, I think everybody's trying to kill me!

Jak: What are you talking about?

Vin: Those eco wells the Baron had us drill? It seems he never intended to pipe them into the city grid. It doesn't make any sense! You know, open eco wells will attract more Metal Heads!

Looking more afraid than before, he takes a tug onto Daxter's chest.

Vin: You've got to close them off!

He released his grip and picked up a crate at the other side of the room.

Vin: Now, these plasmite bombs should do the trick.

He tosses them over to Jak.

Vin: Drop one into each well, eh, and the blast will do the rest.

Just then, Jak loses his footing slightly, causing a bomb to get out, letting Daxter juggle it to retain its balance.

Vin: Hey! Be careful with that!

Daxter: Plasmite, huh? Cool. How does it work?

He presses the bomb causing it to open up and show a red flashing sensor.

Daxter: Agghhh! I believe this is yours!

He tosses it to Vin.

Vin: Hey, not my problem anymore.

He throws it back to Daxter, causing a "hot potato" type scenario to go as they tossed it back and forth between each other.

Daxter: No. Really. I insist.

Vin: Hey. You're the hero!

Daxter: No! Jak's the hero!

He threw the bomb back in the crate... and then they were ALL set off.

Daxter: Oops. Sorry. My bad...

Vin: Great! Now you've armed the whole lot! Don't move!

He pauses for a split second before speaking again.

Vin: On second thought, MOVE! Far away! Go through the portal and drop one bomb into each eco well before they all go off!

They run through the portal.

Vin: You only have two minutes!

The Wells Go Boom!EditThey manage to toss a bomb into each of the wells and when the time came, they all blow up. At the sight of it, Daxter does some karate poses with successes.

Daxter: Woo. HIGH YA! Whaaaaa!

Before he could try anything else, a part of the explosion sends him down to the ground. Then, they return to Vin.

Kor Is UpsetEditDaxter: What a brainwreck! Vin sure is scared of Metal Heads.

As he says that, Kor makes his way inside the station.

Kor: And for good reason. I've seen what Metal Heads do when they take a city. The destruction. The killing. The devouring. The Baron's scheming will only result in this city's falling prey like all the others before it. We must replace Praxis before it's too late. I am happy to say that you and your sidekick are causing quite a stir in our fight against the Baron.

Daxter: You hear that Jak? You're the sidekick!

His attention is then brought to Kor pulling back one of his robes.

Daxter: Hey, uh, wise and whiskered. You, uh, got something itchin' under your robes? They have ointment for that you know.

Kor: It's just my aching bones. We have word that the Baron is sending out one of his large tanker ships and to the Drill Platform to pick up a load of ill gotten eco. Go out to the Drill Platform through the Warp Gate and knock out that ship! The Shadow will send a team from the Underground to pick up the eco later. Keep up the good work. We're counting on you!

They go to the Drill Platform and take out the ships.

Daxter's Tall TaleEditThey head back to the Hip Hog. Once in there, Daxter gets accustomed and sits on the bar.

Daxter: So there I was, toe to toe with FIVE of the nastiest Metal Heads you ever saw! Slime oozing from monstrous jaws! Teeth sharper than daggers! Slowly, all TEN of 'em surround me. But do I surrender? No! I summon my highly trained killer instincts, and pounce! Hya! Chooy! Whaa! HAA! And when the dust cleared, there were TWENTY less Metal Heads in the world!

Tess: Ohhh, Daxter you're amazing!

Daxter: Yeah, I know. Scratch me there.

He points at his back and Tess starts rubbing him there.

Sig: Quite a story there, golden boy. I guess you're just the 'animal' I need for another dangerous gig. Combat Metal Heads have now been spotted right here in Haven Forest! These new bad boys have special camouflage, so they're tough to spot but I'm sure with your 'killer instincts' you'll manage. Go to the forest and take 'em all out.

They leave for the forest and kill every last one of them. Then they return to the stadium to see the mechanic again.

Happy ReunionEditJak: We destroyed Krew's cargo.

Mechanic: Great. I'll send you a medal. Now, if you don't mind, I'm on a deadline, so scram.

Jak: Are you always this difficult?

Daxter: Let me handle this, Jak. Listen lady, we beat your stupid course, and we can outrace anybody in this city.

Mechanic: Wait! That voice...

Daxter: And there's just two things you need to know. One, we don't want to join your stinking race team, and two... you just lost a date with Orange Lightning. Let's go Jak.

They are about to leave, when... the green curtain is pulled open, showing the mechanic in full figure - It's Keira!

Keira: Daxter, it IS you!

Daxter: Keira?!

Keira: Oh I never thought I'd be so glad to see your furry mug! And Jak! You look... different.

Jak: It's been a tough ride.

Daxter: The Baron pumped our boy here full of Dark Eco, and it did something to him. Now he's got super moves or something, and a few anger issues as well!

Keira: I've been looking for you guys forever and planning a way to get us back home. Somehow that rift took us far into the future. I've calculated the time displacement...

Jak: We found your father... well, sort of.

Daxter: Working with the Underground fighting the Baron. But he's ahh...

Keira: What!?

Jak: You need to go see him. And I need to get to the Baron.

Keira: You could try to win the Class One Racing Championship. The winner of that big race always gets to meet the Baron in the Palace. But you have to qualify by winning the lower class races. There's a Class Three race starting soon. You can drive for my team. But Jak, we should think about getting you out of here. I don't like this place. And some of the people are creepy.

Immediately after she finishes speaking, Krew flies into the building.

Krew: Jak, my boy. I need that Ruby Key you found, 'ey. A 'special client' has requested it.

Jak: Sorry about that, Krew. Heh heh... I must've forgotten.

Krew: Right!

Jak takes out the key and gives it to Krew, whom gives out a smile upon its grasp around his fingers. Then, they go for the race and win.

The Cat FightEditUpon returning in the garage, their trophy is placed on a shelf.

Daxter: When is this city gonna provide some challenge, huh?

Suddenly, Ashelin comes into the room.

Ashelin:' Hey, I watched you race today. You were pretty amazing out there.

Jak: Oh, thanks... ah, Keira, ah this is Ashelin. She's just...

Keira: Everyone knows who she is.

Jak: And Keira's a...

Keira: A friend. A very good friend.

Ashelin: Thanks for helping out with that tanker, Jak. You saved a lot of lives.

She starts to leave the room.

Ashelin: I'm not my father, you know. Ever since I was a little girl, I've looked down at the city streets from that ridiculous Palace, and imagined a better place.

A bunch of Krimzon Guards walk past the garage.

Ashelin: By the way, they're hunting for you. I'd watch out for Erol. I can't protect you from him.

She then leaves the building.

Daxter: Whew, she's a betty! And she likes you Jak, not that I can account for her tastes. I bet you'd love to pin some medals on her chest, huh? Hee hee hee...

The comments cause Keira to leave.

Daxter: What? What'd I say? What did you say, Jak?

The Legend of Mar's TombEditThey go over to Onin's tent in the bazaar, where they meet up with her, Pecker, and Samos inside.

Samos: The birdbrain and I were just talking about you Jak. Onin is very proud of what you did.

Jak: What I did?

Pecker: What you did... what you'll do... it's all the same.

Daxter: Will you stop with the deja voodoo stuff! It's creepy!

Samos: Onin says you must find the Tomb of Mar.

Pecker: Even now, Baron Praxis seeks the tomb, but only... arrrk!!! The one true heir of Mar can open the Tomb's seal.

Samos: We believe the kid is the key.

Pecker: The prophecies say the true heir of Mar must face the ancient Oracle. He alone must circumvent the cunning tests of manhood. He alone must wield the Precursor Stone, thereby unleashing... Geez, louise, fossil lady! Stop with the snotty mystic talk already!

He brings his head down to her face.

Pecker: You know that it hurts my lips!

Jak: Why is Mar's tomb so important?

Pecker: The fabled Precursor Stone is fabled to sleep within the Tomb, stupid. I added the 'stupid' part. The Precursor Stone contains vast eco energies. It can be used for great good.. or... great eeeevil! I just love saying that last part!

Samos: The Baron wants the Precursor Stone for himself to rule the world. But he is playing with forces he does not understand.

While he speaks, Daxter falls asleep on top of Jak's shoulder.

Jak: Okay Pecker, so how do I get this Precursor Stone?

Pecker tries to speak, but Samos cuts him off.

Samos: First, you must go to the Dig and find the Lurker totem. Onin and I learned that a piece to the Seal of Mar is contained within its ancient carvings. You must find all three pieces of the seal to open Mar's gate into the canyon.

It's a Curse, Isn't It?EditThey leave for the dig and it isn't long until they reach the totem.

Daxter: I'm on it! Wait a minute. I think this time you should go get the thing!

That leaves Jak to climb up for the piece, held at the top of the pole.

Daxter: Looks dodgy up there! Don't hurt yourself, Jak!

He pulls it out, as well as a wooden chunk... which falls on top of Daxter and covers him up from the belly up. Jak climbs down from the pole and they start to head off, sort of.

Daxter: It's a curse, isn't it?

They come to a stop and Jak frees his partner. Then they return to the city.

A Piece of the SealEditThey find the second Seal Piece at the water slums. When they get it, the flying intercom shows up.

Brutter (voice): That is it. Piece of seal, yes? Nice and shiny, huh? All yours! Uh-oh, I think red troopers approaching!

They escape from the guards and after that, they make their way back to the Underground base.

The Hellcat MissionEditTorn: The Baron's coming down pretty hard. Whatever you've been doing, you've really upset him.

Jak: I'm just getting started.

Torn: He's brought in new Krimzon Guard 'Hellcat' Cruisers, making the streets dangerous for the Underground. We've already lost five men this week.

Jak: Your 'men' should be able to take care of themselves... but I wouldn't mind taking out a few Cruisers if that's what you're getting at.

Torn: Never part of a bigger cause, eh Jak? Fine, I'll take your help any way I can get it. Bring down all five 'Hellcat' Cruisers. That should send the Baron a message.

They go on to destroy the HellCats.

Onin's ChallengeEditThey return to the Bazaar to meet up with Onin again. This time, she is seen in 'conversation' with Kor.

Kor: Expecting that little boy to save us is folly! At his age, he is no match for the Metal Head leader.

He turns around and notices Jak stepping in.

Kor: Oh... Jak. We were just talking about Samos's plan.

Pecker: Onin says your voice sounds very familiar. I'll bet you two golden oldies go WAY back, huh? Onin needs you to prove yourself, Jak. You've shown your brass, and your brawn. Now you must use your brains as well. Frankly, I think she's pushing it, but I'm not the boss. Beat this test, and the third piece to the Seal will be revealed.

Mar's Seal is CompleteEditThey take the test and the Seal piece is shown.

Pecker: Behold! The Seal of Mar is now complete. Onin says the three artifacts you've retrieved from the Mountain Temple... arrrrk... are relics from an ancient Light Tower. Old songs tell how this light tower once shined down on the actual site of Mar's tomb! I sing one of these songs for you.

He then started singing with barely any tune whatsoever.

Pecker: "From the mists of time, Mar's light would shine..."

Jak: Whoa there iron lungs! Just tell us what we need to do.

Pecker: Cretins with no taste, huh?

He gives out a dry spit with disgust.

Pecker: You must take the three artifacts to Mar's gate. Only then will the Light Tower rise and reveal the tomb.

The Seal Opens the DoorEditThey reach the gate and Jak brings his hand out with the seal on it. It begins to float towards the middle of the door before it opens.

The Light Tower RisesEditAhead from the gate, they reached a large site. Jak gave Daxter the gear, whom ran to it towards a table with a pair of larger gears, while he himself went across a bunch of stepping stones over a pond to a large magnifying glass. The gear and the lens were put into place almost at the same time, causing the Light Tower to rise from the spring. Then, Jak got out the shard, and placed it in an alcove, which operated a claw-like machine. It charged with a light, which reflected off the lens, which destroyed the statue of Praxis in the city itself. The Tomb was there.

Jak Finds Mar's TombEditThey go over to the Tomb and meet Samos, Kor and the kid upon arrival.

Samos: You did it, Jak! You actually found Mar's tomb!

Jak: Great! Now what? We send this poor kid into a meat grinder?

Kor: This is the day I've long awaited! To finally hold the fabled Precursor Stone in my hands.

Samos: You must be cautious, child. The tests of manhood are sure to be fraught with peril and Mar's heir must face them alone.

Daxter: It's okay, kid. You can do it. It's just a deep, pitch-black, 'sure to be filled to the brim with painful death' old tomb. I wouldn't go in there.

Then... the sound of shuffling is heard. An Oracle is then heard from the top of the room.

Oracle: Welcome, heir of Mar. Finally, the chosen one stands before me. Enter and prove yourself worthy to claim the ancient birthright.

The door opens, but... when it is halfway there, it comes to a stop.

Oracle: NO! This child is too young to face the tests!

The door then starts to close.

Kor: What?! No!

Samos: Do something, Jak!

And so he walks towards the door.

Daxter: Jak, remember the 'sure to be filled to the brim with painful death' part!?!

Jak then rolls underneath the door. Daxter goes towards it, but then tries to run away from it.

Daxter: YAAAAGHH!!!

Before he could go any further, Jak takes him by the tail and pulls him in. They starts to deal with the tests of manhood.

Samos: Great tree limbs! He's gone to face the tests!

Kor: No, he's gone to his death.

But they are not alone.

Guard: FREEZE!

Daxter Lends a HandEditAlong the way, they find a boulder supported by a small iron bar. Daxter comes to it and, with a few tugs, he pulls it out. But that causes it to start rolling and a chase occurring for the ottsel.

Daxter's Hairy ChaseEditAt one instant, the boulder becomes jammed. Daxter catches his breath and looked behind him. But a change occurs; the boulder shows its true form which is a giant spider.

Daxter: AGGGHH!!!!

He runs away from it and after a fair amount of running, the doors close behind him and he comes to a stop. That leaves Jak to tackle the rest of the test(s) alone.

The Tomb DoorsEditOne of the tests were completed, and as that happens... all the torches leading towards the tomb were turned off like light bulbs.

The First BeamEditThe beam from the Second Test of Manhood launches towards the door.

The Second BeamEditThe other beam - the one from the First Test of Manhood is then sent out to the door, completing the set.

The Door OpensEditThe power of the two beams open up the door slowly but carefully.

The Precursor Stone!EditJak goes inside the door and is reunited with Daxter.

Jak: Daxter, there you are! What happened to you?

Daxter: I had a hairy experience! No thanks to you!

Then... Oracle's voice is heard from nearby again.

Oracle: Welcome young warrior. Many eons have passed since our hope burned so brightly. Today you have proven yourself worthy to receive Mar's legacy.

Daxter: He's talking about me! Thanks, your holy-statueness.

He bows in front of the statue ahead of him.

Daxter: This tomb wasn't so tough!

Oracle: What you are about to receive contains grave power, and with it comes grave responsibility. Eons ago, the Precursors waged a terrible war with the Hora-quan, those dark creatures you refer to as 'Metal Heads'. Driven by their dark leader, the Metal Head legions destroyed our great civilization, and now they swarm the universe unopposed, looking for the last relics of our power. Mar tried to hide the Precursor Stone in this tomb to protect it from them. It is our last hope, and you were chosen to keep that hope alive.

Jak: I think you've got me confused with someone else. I just want the Stone.

Oracle: It is time to fulfill your destiny! Behold!

Inside the statue, a green stone is seen glowing brightly.

Daxter: Wow! Let's get the goods!

They go to get it, but... from behind them, a red flying spider mech comes into view... controlled by Baron Praxis.

Praxis: You fools! You brought me right to the Stone! Your pitiful Underground friends were no match for my guards above! Now I will gain the power I need to crush my enemies!

He brings one of the legs down to the ground, causing the bridge between Jak and the Stone to crumble apart.

Praxis: And after claiming the Stone, I'll begin with you!

He brought the mech on top of the stone, and tried to take it.

Oracle: Abomination! The Precursor Stone was not meant for you!

The doors opened by the tests were closed, leaving a battle to rage between the two parties.

The Baron Steals the ShowEditThey had luck by blowing up Praxis's machine, but... he re-emerged in his escape ship, with the Stone in his possession

Praxis: Nice try, but the Stone is still mine! Don't worry... I will use the Stone to its full potential. Soon, all who oppose me will be destroyed by its power!

And then he flew away.

Act 3Edit Torn Admits His TreacheryEditThere is only one place left for Jak and Daxter to go which is back to the Underground, where Torn is in wait.

Jak: How did the Baron know we were making a close move to the Stone?

Torn: It's my fault. The Baron threatened to kill Ashelin for spying. His own daughter! I couldn't risk that, even for the Underground.

Daxter: Right! Very good thinking... except Praxis has the Precursor Stone now, so he can do whatever he wants!

Torn: There is still a way to get our friends back and maybe the Precursor Stone as well. I'll find Vin. Go to the fortress, and we'll call you.

Jak: And why should we trust you?!

Torn: Because you and I both know the Baron would have killed Ashelin!

They hang their heads with the thought in mind.

Torn: It'll be a tough ride through the fortress, probably suicide.

Jak: You just get that door open! I'll be there!

The Time TwinsEditThey go to the Fortress and make their way towards the prison cells seen at the start of the game. Two doors were opened, and Daxter went towards one of them, having Tess inside it.

Daxter: Hey there sweetheart! The Metal Head masher has saved the day! Oh, and I let Jak tag along too.

Tess: Oh, my little hero!

She picks him up and hugs him. Meanwhile, Jak approaches the second cell, which has Samos inside it.

Jak: Samos, are you alright

All of a sudden... an older version of Samos pops out of the cell into view. This Samos is the Samos we see from the beginning.

Old Samos: What took you so long? I added six rings to my trunk waiting for you two to get me outta here!

His look then show shock.

Old Samos: Great Yakow horns! What happened to you Jak?

Daxter: Wait a minute! You're you! I mean the other you! I mean... you know what I mean.

Young Samos: Yes, it appears I have an older time twin. Great grass grubs. I can't believe what a cranky old log I've become!

Daxter: Two Samos the Sages?! Aaack, Jak, they're multiplying!

Old Samos: We need to find the kid, pronto!

Young Samos: What are you talking about, old growth? The kid already opened the tomb. Our top priority should be to disrupt the Baron's forces!

Old Samos: Oh, look who thinks they sprouted. If you were half as wise as I am, you'd know that the proper cause of action is to find the kid!

Young Samos: Listen, you old dried up leaf. I run this outfit, and I say we go after the Baron's forces.

Near the end of the argument, Daxter steps in-between them.

Daxter: Do we have to separate you two?

Jak: Vin's activating the Warp Gate. We need to get out of here now!

They leave the scene. Once back out into the city, Jak goes to the Hip Hog.

Sig Bares His SoulEditUpon arrival, Krew is seen taking a nap. Towards the left hand side of the building, the pair sit down with Sig at one of the many tables in the room.

Sig: You boys are alright, and since the boss is out of it right now, I'm going to give it to you straight. I've been Krew's heavy for years, and I've done things I'm not proud of, but this time, I think Krew's gotten himself and us, into something really nasty. I'm thinking of getting out.

Daxter: Ohh... Sig's beginning to like us, Jak. Come here you bug lug! Hugs for everyone!

Sig: Knock it off! I think Krew's trying to...

Suddenly, his attention is brought over by the sound of shuffling and faster snores from Krew.

Sig: Shhh... he's waking up...

Daxter: Relaaaax... watch me butter up bun boy.

He jumps off the table, and went towards him.

Daxter: Hey there, stuffed crust. How's it feel floating on top of the food chain? Whooooo... Krew meister... have you been exercising? You're looking good! You are... definitely... living large! And... those legs... they're so... ah, chiseled.

Krew: I need you to escort three of my boys down into the sewers and visit that statue again. I've heard that Mar's cheeky face might contain another secret, and I want you to see if the stories are true, ey? Make sure all three of my boys get to that statue, and they'll do all the rest, hmmmmn?

They leave and escort the three men through the sewers.

It's a Trap!EditAt one stage, they get round to blowing up one of the blocked doors. While that happened, the sound of growling is heard.

Jinx: You hear that?

Mog: Sounds like I got gas...

From above, a bunch of Metal Heads show up.

Grim: AGH! The ceiling's crawling!

Jinx: Jak! Metal Heads everywhere!

Mog: It's a trap!

Jak brings out his gun and shoots them all.

Statue BustingEditThey finally reach the statue of Mar itself.

Mog: Oooo... Pretty statue...

Jinx: Stand back. We're professionals.

They rig explosives into the statue.

Jinx: Alright boys, let's blow this sucker sky high!

Jak: Wait!... who told you to...? NO!

The statue explodes into pieces and the head then makes its way towards Jak, stopping at his feet.

Jinx: That's what we're looking for, the Heart of Mar gem!

They pick up a ruby from the wrecks and leave the area. As they look smug with the result, Jak's face shows bitter anger.

Jinx: Thanks for the escort, buddy. We'll take it back to Krew!

Jak Walks OutEditDistressed, they go over to the stadium. As soon as they walk into the garage, they meet up with Erol again.

Erol: Well, if it isn't the Dark Eco freak!

Jak: Where's Keira?

Erol: Don't worry, I'm keeping a close eye on her. You're the talk of the town, Jak! You give the people hope... how pathetic. I would have enjoyed killing you in prison, but now, it'll be so much more fun to take you on the track, in front of the entire city. I can hear the roar of the crowd now... as everyone sees their hope die...

From the entrance to the garage, Keira comes in with Old Samos.

Keira: It's good to have you back daddy.

Old Samos: Yes, it's nice to be free again.

Erol: You know, Keira LOVES a winner. Someday she'll be MY mechanic.

Jak: Stay away from her!

Erol: Heee, hee, haa, haaa!

Erol leaves the garage.

Keira: Ah, Erol's the best racer I've ever seen.

Jak: He's not what you think.

Keira: And you're a good judge of character?! HA! Look at you! People say you get angry and... change. Besides, the Jak I knew wouldn't be working for a guy like Krew.

Jak: I need Krew's connections to fight the Baron! Without my... You know what? Do it your way, and I'll do it mine. Just don't come crying to me when the walls fall down.

And so, Jak leaves the garage.

Daxter: Ah, Jak, buddy... Ha ha. Where you going there pal? Jak? Jak!

Comp voice: Attention all drivers, the Class Two races will begin soon.

Daxter: Now what are we gonna do?

Keira: You'll have to drive for the team, Daxter. We need this win to qualify for the final championship!

Daxter: How hard can it be? Just hold on tight and point the thingy where I want it to go, right? And then there's this other thingy that makes it go fast. Fast is good! I can do this. I'm ready to race!

Daxter's Big WinEditAnd so Daxter races and wins, with another trophy on the shelf. Tess is also there to see it put into place.

Daxter: Now there's a handsome winner!

Keira: You did it Daxter! You helped us qualify for the big race!

Daxter: Did you ever doubt? I back seat drive for Jak all the time.

His attention is then brought to Tess.

Daxter: Hey! When do I get the winner's big kiss?

Tess: Maybe later... if you're a good boy.

She pets Daxter, and while that happens, Jak makes his return.

Daxter: Hey there, we, ah, showed those Class Two losers a thing or two, huh?

Jak: I saw. You drifted a little high in the turns a few times, but, you hung in there! I'm proud of you, Dax.

Daxter: Really?

Jak: Yeah! You did great!

Daxter: No! WE did great! Right, partner?

Protect the HideoutEditThey then leave the scene and go back to the Underground to meet up with the two Samos twins again.

Old Samos: The Baron is still up to his old tricks.

Young Samos: The Underground got word that several Krimzon Blast Bots are zeroing in on the hideout here.

Old Samos: They're armored bombs which seek all targets. If any of these Blast Bots reach this place, we're dead!

Young Samos: Ahh, what are you worried about, old man. You're almost dead anyway.

Old Samos: Well, if you'd TAKEN better care of yourself, I wouldn't be in the state I am now!

Young Samos: Take out those Blast Bots before they reach the hideout, Jak. They have proximity defenses, so do be careful.

Both: Good hunting!

Upon the comment by the pair, Jak turned around and saw them looking innocent exactly the same. Then, they head out the room, and the pair gives an identical light wave to him. They complete the task and that leaves them to go to the Port.

Our Own Peace Maker!EditOnce there, they open a crate and what looks like another gun is shown. It's the the Peace Maker.

Daxter: Alright! Our own Peace Maker! Now we're rockin'!

Jak loads it and he gives a wink to his partner.

Krew Makes A ThreatEditThey return back to the Hip Hog, spending more time with Tess. But that is until Krew shows up.

Krew: Hey! Back to work toots.

Daxter: She's working beach ball! Quit your yappin'.

Krew: Watch it! Or you'll be yet another trophy hung on these walls.

He points at the Metal Head trophies hung around the room.

Krew: Jak, I want you to throw the championship race. Just let Erol win...

Jak: You bet against us?!

Krew: Jak... Jak... It's just business.

In the background, another figure is seen sitting down with his feet on one of the tables.

Krew: You've become a symbol to these townies. They'll bet everything on a glimmer of hope. What better time to make money? Waddaya say my boy?

Jak: I'd say you're going to lose a lot of money. Because I'm going to race and I intend to win!

Krew: Aggghh! You little... You're becoming more trouble than you're worth! I wouldn't get too comfy, if I was you! Everyone's expendable!

Daxter faints right after Krew finished speaking. Then, the figure stands up and shows himself - Erol.

Erol: In a hurry to die, boy? Well, we don't have to wait for the big race! We can do this right now! One on one, through the city, using accelerator rings. Hit every ring from start to finish. Miss even one ring, and it's over! Keira already thinks you're a loser, and I'll prove it now, once and for all.

Jak: You're on.

Erol Hates To LoseEditThey head out of the saloon and race towards the stadium. And it is there that Jak gets there first.

Erol: Aggghh! Don't get too cocky, outlaw! Next time we race for keeps! And your head will be my trophy!

And so he leaves.

Daxter: Ahh, blow it out your ear! You were bottle-fed, weren't you?

They leave the Stadium section.

Old MemoriesEditAnd it isn't long until they return to the Sacred Site or Samos's old hut. Once there, they see a green glowing seed up on the ceiling.

Daxter: I spent many a day cleaning up this place for old greenie.

Then... the seed hovers down towards Jak. And from nearby, the intercom shows itself, with Old Samos speaking on there.

Old Samos (voice): Good work, Jak! And... Daxter, I suppose. Before we came through the rift long ago, I was nurturing that Life Seed from the Great Tree. It seems the Metal Heads are attracted to its power. Take the seed to Onin now. She will prepare it for Samos.

Daxter: You mean you?

Old Samos (voice): No, the other me, Daxter!? My younger self needs the seed's power to become... sagely.

Daxter: So... let me get this straight. It's fair to say that by bringing your younger self the life seed now, we helped you become the sage you are today? We helped you get your powers in the first place. And you never thanked us?!!!

Old Samos (voice): Thank you Daxter... now go do it!

Pecker Picks a FightEditThey go towards Onin's tent, where Pecker stands near the entrance with an angry look on him.

Pecker: Onin says what took you so long?! We had to skip lunch waiting for you two! Okay... okay... She really says "Thank you for saving the Life Seed". But I wouldn't say that if I were her! Give Onin the seed, and she will prepare it for Samos.

Jak gives Onin the seed, whom starts covering it with bright auras.

Pecker: Mmmmmm... bird seed...

Daxter: Back off, feather weight!

Pecker: Listen tiny tail, I was leading my hundredth flock south before you had fur one between your legs! Not that your fur means anything!

Daxter: At least I'm not some over stuffed, over yappin', feather dusty mouthpiece for the world's oldest professional!

He starts roaming around the room doing silly gestures.

Daxter: Jak says, 'have a nice day.' Jak says, 'I can't think on my own.' Jak says 'Go bite yourself!'

Pecker: That's it, rat boy! Now you've really pissed me off!

They then exchange karate poses to each other.

Pecker: Hiyaaaaoooowww!

Jak: Knock it off, both of you!

Pecker: You're lucky I'm famished! Onin says take the energized Life Seed to young Samos in Haven Forest. It will give Samos the power he needs to finally see the forest from the trees! Go. Quickly!

Samos And The SeedEditThey see Young Samos near a large tree in the forest.

Jak: Samos told me to... I mean... you told me to... or... well... I mean your older version... ah... whatever. We heard you needed the Life Seed.

He gives the seed to him.

Young Samos: Yes. Its power will help me speak to the plants.

But from further up the forest, a bunch of Krimzon Guards start to come over to them.

Guard 1: There he is!

Guard 2: Roger. We're en route!

Guard 3: I see 'em!

Young Samos: Jak, protect me from these guards! I must ask the plants vital questions about our future!

The VisionEditThey protect him from the guards and that sent the remaining ones to retreat back to the city. They then face Yong Samos again.

Young Samos: The Life Seed gave me a terrible vision! The Baron is planning to destroy the Precursor Stone! He aims to crack it open somehow! If he does this, the energy released will be beyond comprehension! It will destroy the world and more... ending all life! The plants are crying out for protection! You must stop the Baron, Jak! Stop him, however you can!

They leave him to return to the city.

Good News and Bad NewsEditOnce back, they head over to the Power Station to meet Vin.

Daxter: Hey there, sack a nerves! How's the bzzzzzt stuff going?

Vin: I've got good news and bad news. The good news is Kor tells me that we've got enough power on-line to keep the shield walls up. So for now, the city's safe. But I don't know how long the system can hold.

Jak: And the bad news?

Vin: We've detected a cluster of Metal Head eggs growing up at the Strip Mine site. Now, you've got to go back there and find a way to destroy those eggs before they turn into a whole new army of creatures.

Jak: I noticed the crane was carrying a large metal container. If we could jump onto the container, we could drop the crate from above.

Daxter: High? Jump? Drop?!

He gives out a light gulp with fear.

Daxter: Why don't I like the sound of that?

Jak: Come on Dax, let's go.

The Big CrushEditThey reach the site and jump towards the container upon approaching it. They swing down the rope before landing on a red button, causing the container to drop onto the eggs. But... the rope gives way, causing them fall half-way down. It stops and they were still seen on the small platform. Then... it gives way again - Jak falls off, while Daxter tries to crawl up the rope before letting go and trying to 'fly' back onto it. The rope stops again... and the pair are seen hanging onto the platform barely off the ground. That is then they drop safely.

The Boy Is MissingEditThey head back through the Warp Gate to the Power Station, where Kor is in wait.

Kor: I can't believe it! We were so close! The Baron stole the Precursor Stone right out from under us! And after all of our planning and hard work, Torn has betrayed the cause!

Jak: Torn meant well. He was protecting one of our own.

Kor: We must get that stone back.

Jak: I'm working on it!

Daxter: Yeah, we're working on it!

Kor: I've underestimated this Baron, and now it appears he has taken the boy as well! Think. What will the Baron's next move be?

Daxter: Well, if I had the Precursor Stone, with all that power, I'd use it to build a giant palace. A palace with the biggest harem of women the world has ever known, and there'd be a swimming pool filled to the brim with chocolate... slightly minty... yeah, yeah, a massive pool of gooey chocolate! Then the girls and I would jump in together...

Jak slaps Daxter, causing him to keep silent for a split second.

Daxter: What?

Kor: I want you to go out to the Drill Platform again. If you can destroy the main control tower there, it should temporarily stop the Baron's use of eco to harm us.

The Control Tower BlowsEditThey make their way to the tower, destroy the control panels, and escape leaving the top of the tower to blow up.

Some More LurkersEditOnce back out in the city, they meet up with Brutter at his stand again.

Brutter: It's brother Jak and his little orangey pal!

Jak just stays in one place and looks at Brutter, while Daxter brings himself under an ale barrel and starts drinking the contents.

Brutter: Thank the totem I sees you. You help Lurkers once time, you help us twos?

Jak: Look Brutter, we've got our own problems to deal with right now.

Brutter: But you know big-to-do ruckus you caused at Dig? I know all caves like back of claw, and Mar's tomb no where there! Now Metal Heads find hidden Lurker village in caves! They bite, and hurt village real bad, and we Lurker brothers trapped like animals!

Daxter: Ah, hello, they are animals.

Brutter: We no longer evil-lurking, bad-to-bones, orangey boy! We good now. Metal Headers are bad. They is enemies.

Jak: Yeah, I guess we're all in the same boat now.

Daxter: And the ship is sinking fast, brother.

Brutter: Please, save six Lurker brothers quick, and Brutter will kiss you foots!

Daxter brings one of his feet in the air in protest. Then, they leave to free the Lurkers.

Keira Reveals Her PlanEditOnce the task is done, they go over to the Stadium to see Keira, whom stands near the green curtain.

Keira: I'll show you guys what I'm working on, if you promise not to laugh.

Daxter: Ooooo, I love surprises! And I love to laugh! Show me! Show me!

The green curtain is pulled open, showing a vehicle-like machine.

Keira: I've been building a replica of our crashed Rift Rider machine from old artifacts.

Old Samos: That's my girl!

Keira: But I'm still missing two pieces.

Old Samos: Figures...

Keira: Vin says I need an artifact called the 'Time Map' and an old energy gem history books call the 'Heart of Mar'. And I've looked in every book on Precursor history I can find, but the Rift Ring seems to have vanished!

Jak: You did all this? I mean... that's useful.

Daxter: Oh, will you two stop moping around and make up already!

Jak: I've seen the Heart of Mar! Krew has it! We'll get those two artifacts, Keira.

Then... a female voice speaks up on the speakers nearby.

Comp voice: Attention all drivers. The Class One Championship race is about to begin!

Jak: Well, here goes. The race of my life!

Keira: Jak... I just wanted you to know... well, you're the best racer I've ever seen.

Daxter: Hey! What about me?! I helped get us here!

Jak: Do you wanna drive?

Daxter: Against that crazy loon Erol? No way! You got the handlebars, brother. And you better keep us alive or I will never speak to you again! Obviously.

Keira: Leave 'em in the dust, Jak!

The Big RaceEditThey reach the stadium and get onto the starting grid. Then, from further behind the track, Erol comes and stops right next to him.

Erol: I want more than just to win, eco freak... I want you!

Then, a platform comes down near the racers, showing Baron Praxis and some of the Krimzon Guards on it.

Praxis: Greetings, racers! Today your nerve and skill will be tested for our amusement. If any of you should by some small chance beat our grand champion Erol, then you will be awarded a month's supply of eco!

He shifts his eyes towards his right and speaks in a lower tone.

Praxis: And a short tour of my palace to see how the other half live. Good luck, and die bravely!

This leaves Jak and Erol to start focusing on the track ahead, shifting their eyes towards each other from time to time.

Praxis: Ready? Get set!

The Winner's CircleEditThe green light shows, and the race began... which ended with Jak winning. He gets a hold of his pass to the Palace and has the eco right behind him.

Daxter: Thank you. Thank you very much.

He gives out a kiss to his hand and brings it out above him.

Daxter: I love my public!

Then, Praxis comes down on his platform again, looking at Jak from behind.

Praxis: Ah, a brave man of the people. And who is this worthy opponent? In my world, good men are either bought or broken. So which is it going to be?

Jak turns around and shows his face in front of the Baron.

Jak: Surprise.

Praxis: WHAT?

Jak: Just a little closer. We need to talk.

Praxis: Fool! Don't you get it?! It's over, Jak! All the heroes died long ago! Only survival remains... by whatever means! This city is mine! These lives are mine! This war is mine! And in war... PEOPLE DIE! Kill him!

The Krimzon Guards near him aim their guns at him. But... something attracts their attention from ahead.

Guard: Look out!

From further behind the track, Erol came into view speeding towards Jak.

Erol: I win, Jak!

Jak jumps out of the way, leaving Erol to crash into the eco. While the explosion clears, his racing mask is seen sliding along the floor. And it is there when Jak makes his escape from the stadium.

Praxis: After them!

Back Where We StartedEditThey make their way towards the Palace. Upon arrival, they go inside the chapel, where Ashelin comes into view, armed with a pistol.

Ashelin: I shouldn't have trusted you!

Jak: Back where we started, huh?

Ashelin: Don't play with me! All along you've been trying to undermine our war with the Metal Heads! Whose side are you on?

Jak: Listen Ashelin, your father's planning something terrible, and if...

Ashelin: My father can destroy the Metal Head armies once and for all!

Jak: If he cracks open the Precursor Stone, the explosion will kill all of us! Don't you get it?!

Daxter: That's right! Not so hard, huh? Even I can figure this one out!

Ashelin: Don't you move!

She gets out an intercom and speaks down it.

Ashelin: Vin? Come in.

Vin (voice): What? What? I've got my hands full here, you know!

Ashelin: You know all about the Precursor Stone myth, right?

Vin (voice): Sure, I did my Econecic Energy Doctorate on Precurian Theoretical Physics. Why?

Ashelin: What would happen if the Precursor Stone were to be... say... violently cracked open?

Vin (voice): Great! As if I didn't have enough to keep me awake at night, you need one more thing to dread! Thank you very much! If someone actually had the Stone, according to my calculations, a runaway eco surge from cracking it open would... theoretically destroy... EVERYTHING!

Ashelin: Everything?

Vin (voice): All things... every single thing... Now if you don't mind, I'm gonna go throw up! Bye bye...

The connection is hung.

Jak: Trust me Ashelin. We have to stop him.

Ashelin: I'll try to find out more. But right now, my father is meeting Krew at a secret Weapons Factory near the Dig.

She gets out another card from her grasp.

Ashelin: Here. That's my top level security pass. It'll get you into the factory, but it won't get you back out. We never had this conversation.

She leaves. And that leaves Jak to find a way out of the Palace before going to the Weapons Factory.

Krew's BabyEditAnd it isn't long before he meets Krew either.

Krew: I knew you were special when I first met you Jak, and I commend you for making it this far. We've come a long way, 'ey?

Jak: Yeah. I'm getting real teary-eyed.

Krew: I love weapons. I love how they look... how they feel... even how they smell...

Jak: I think you need serious help.

Krew: My favorite was the impossibly powerful weapon Mar built to blast open the Metal Head nest. Poor fool died before he could use it, ahh well. But I have a new favorite. The Piercer Bomb I've just completed. My masterpiece is powerful enough to crack open the Precursor Stone, and release the untold energy inside! As soon as the Baron shows up with the Stone, we'll hide it in the last shipment of Eco and deliver it to the Metal Head nest. A surprise dessert, 'ey? Hee hee hmmm... Just take this gun upgrade and forget what you saw here.

He gives it to Jak, whom loads it in, but... stays put.

Jak: Not this time, Krew! I'm through being your hired gun!

Krew: Then it's war, isn't it?

Oh well...EditThey fight each other and the end left Krew powerless.

Jak: Is it to late to give my notice?

Daxter: Yeah! We quit!

Krew: The city is already dead! I've sold you all out. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha...

He gives out a weakened cough.

Daxter: Ahhh, Jak... I think maybe we should be anywhere else just about NOW!

Then... a flying vehicle shows up, with Ashelin inside it.

Jak: Ashelin!

Ashelin: We're outta here!

They board her ship and they leave back towards the city.

Krew: Ohhh well...

The factory blows up behind them. It is then official, Krew is gone.

Ashelin Drops Jak OffEditMeanwhile, back in the city, Ashelin brings the vehicle down near the port.

Ashelin: You guys find my father. I'll take the Heart of Mar to Keira for you. I'm sorry it's come to this.

She leaves the scene, while they go over to the Hip Hog.

The Game Player Steps UpEditOnce at the saloon, they are looking at a whack-a-Metal-Head machine.

Tess: Hey guys. Whatever Krew put in that machine, he looked really nervous.

Daxter: Whatever it is, Krew won't be needing it anymore. He's, shall we say, not all together these days. Step aside, Jak. Let the game player do his stuff!

Tess: You're such an animal!

Daxter gives out a mad grin as he walks towards the machine.

Get the Time MapEditHe then beats the game and out from it comes an orange, rounded-shaped object.

Daxter: The Time Map! You know, sugar plum, if any REAL Metal Heads came into town, I'd bonk 'em just like I did in the game!

As he speaks, a pair of Metal Heads show up right behind him.

Tess: Daxter...

Daxter: They'd be all 'Don't hurt me please!' and I'd be all 'Too late, Metal Monkies!' 'You die screaming!' Hee, hee. Know what I'm saying?

Jak: Um...

Jak aims his gun over at the Metal Heads. And at the same time, Daxter turns around to see them.

Daxter: Jak, I think these trophies are still walking!

Jak quickly fires his gun over them both, killing them in an instant.

Daxter: Ma... Ma... Metal Heads! Metal Heads! Where's Sig when you need him?!

Tess: Sig? I think Krew sent him on one last mission. Something about using Mar's Ruby Key to open a secret door in the Underport?

Jak: Of course! Come on Dax, we need to get to the Underport right now!

Tess: I'll take the Time Map to Keira!

Daxter: Be careful angel cheeks, and your hero will return shortly!

He gives out a bow and they both leave for the Underport.

Vin's Fate Part 1EditWhile Jak and Daxter go over to the Underport, they receive an audio transmition from Vin.

Vin (voice):The shield wall is down! I repeat, the shield wall is down! Sabotaged! Kor did it! I knew that Metal Heads would be the end of me... oh no! Metal Heads at the door! Jak! Aaaarrgh!

Sig's In TroubleEditThey progressed through the Underport and eventually find Sig shooting at one direction.

Jak: Hey there, tough guy.

Sig turns towards Jak and fires at him, causing him to duck.

Sig: Get your skinny ass over here and start shooting!

He then continues firing at his original direction again.

Sig: Man, was I set up! Krew sent me down here to open some old doors with that Ruby Key you found, and when I did, Metal Heads came streaming in from some passage outside the city walls... Just like they were waiting for me! There's one!

He fires at one high up the walls.

Jak: Krew's dead.

Sig: Yeah? Well he's lucky! Because he would not want me to catch him alive!

Daxter: The Metal Heads must have promised Krew plenty for him to betray the whole city like this.

Sig then fires again.

Jak: Let's get out of here!

Daxter nods with agreement.

Run!EditThe three start to go down the corridors ahead of them but early into the path, one of the walls crumbled, and out came a giant Metal Head.

Sig: Shootin' this one is only going to make him mad. RUN!

Sig's Strong ArmEditThey run away from it as far as they can and it soon comes to a stop when its running breaks a path ahead of Jak, sending him and the Metal Head to fall... but Sig brings out his hand, catches him, and pulls him up.

Here It Comes Again!EditThey go further ahead and again... one of the walls crumbles down, bringing out the large Metal Head.

Sig: Great! Here comes that bad boy again! MOVE!

Sig's Last StandEditThey run as far away from it as possible and it isn't long until they make a stop.

Jak: Let's go! We're almost to the elevator!

Sig: Looks like we finally lost 'em, chili peppers! Piece of cake, huh? Now you boys are real Wastelanders! I say it's time we take this fight to the Metal Head leader himself! What a trophy he'd make! We find a way to juice up Mar's ol' gun, and then boom baby, we storm the nest, guns blazing! Hell! We'll take 'em all on, together! You and me! Side by side! Nothin'll stop us 'cause we're...

Suddenly, the large Metal Head pops out from above and falls down on Sig.


He gets pushed down, taking the whole bridge with him. That leaves a distraught face on Jak at the other side.

Jak & Daxter: SIG!

There is no response. They both hang their heads with disappointment at this loss.

Daxter: So... ahhh... what's plan B?

They leave the Underport, with the shock fixed into their heads.

Brutter Saves the DayEditThey head out to the stadium, where Keira is in wait.

Keira: The Rift Rider's finished! But if my father's right, and the Ring is somewhere in the Metal Head nest, how are we going to get the Rift Rider to use it?

From behind the ship, Brutter pops out and pointed above.

Brutter: LOOK!! Brutter just knew friends would need help if Metal Headers attack!

From above, a giant balloon makes its way down to the ground.

Daxter: Brutter, you're the man!

Brutter: Lurker balloons are finest lifters in the world, but they is easy target

Jak: Right. You guys get the Rift Rider to the nest. I'll stay and defend your take-off and get away.

Daxter: Once again, being your friend SUCKS! I wanna go on the balloon! Brutter: You keep stadium safe while we prep balloon for lift away. Uh-oh! Here they come! Metal Headers!!

Floating AwayEditThey defend the two Samoses from the Metal Heads, whom bring the ship into the balloon. Then, it flies off.

Brutter: Up! Up! And away!

Daxter: Must be nice floating away while we DIE down here!

Keira: We'll meet near the nest! See you soon, Jak! Be careful!

Daxter: Yeah, Jak, be careful!

Vin's Fate Part 2EditWhile they left the stadium, another audio communication was heard. And it was there that Vin was heard speaking with a weaker voice.

Vin: (Communicator): Jak... Kor... Construction Site...

And that was the last they heard from him.

The Secret To making a BombEditTime passes and they manage to reach the construction site itself. Once there, they bring their heads down to hide from Praxis and the Krimzon Guards... until Kor comes down and jumps in-between them all.

Jak: Kor? What's going on?

Kor: I'm sure you know... deep down in your darkest nightmares.

When he comes close to finishing his saying, his eyes turn almost totally blue with a small black pupil remaining, and reveals sharp teeth in his jaws.

Kor: We've met before, remember? Everything's going exactly as planned. HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!

He releases his grip on his walking stick, and starts bringing out wings and a tail from his body, as well as a totally transformed head. The monstrous figure was then shown in full.

Daxter: Jak! It's the Metal Head leader!

He rips his clothes apart, showing a larger body and a lot of extra limbs and finishes his transformation.

Kor: Now you see! Without the shield wall disrupting my powers inside the city, I am my full potential now! So for the last time, give me the Precursor Stone!!!

Praxis: If the city must die, then we all die! AAAGGGHHH!!!

He and the guards charged towards Kor, but... the creature sends out a blast, sending his opponents across the site. While the guards end up near the ground, Praxis ends up knocking into a delicate structure with eco barrels and wooden scaffolding.

Kor: I will find that Stone if I have to crush this city one brick at a time!

He flies away from the scene. Meanwhile, that left Jak to rush to Praxis and free him from the wreckage. He was then seen on his stomach, coughing weakly.

Praxis: You are the supreme weapon, Jak. And I made you.

He then rolls onto his back.

Praxis: Still, any leader worth his salt always has his backup plan...

He takes out a remote and presses a red button on it, causing an exact replica of the Piercer Bomb to come out from the ground.

Praxis: Remember, the first rule in making a bomb ... is to always make two!

His head then drops, and his one eye is closed, leaving him motionless. They were left in silence for a while, before Jak runs to the bomb.

Daxter: Yaaaowww! Okay! I'm going in!

Daxter jumps onto the bomb and goes deep inside it.

Daxter: Man, what a mess a junk in here! All jumbled coils and switches! Should I unhook the blue wire? Wait a minute?! Are ottsels color blind? Let me just break a few more things and see if anything pops loose...

Then, from the top of the bomb, the Precursor Stone pops out.

Daxter: BOOM!!! Ha! Ha! Gotcha!

He slid down the bomb, back towards Jak.

Daxter: Like candy from a baby!

The two leave the scene together, leaving behind the now useless bomb, and the dead body of Baron Praxis.

Jak Visits The NestEditThey take the air train to the Metal Head nest. Once there, they jump out and look on at the path ahead.

Leaving the HiveEditShould they ever leave the Nest, they go inside, with the door closing behind them, and the train heads back to the city.

Stone..Gun..Nest!EditUpon their excursion at the Nest, they see a large gun, presuming that was the one built by Mar to get to the nest. They go up a lift together.

Ashelin (voice): There isn't much hope now. With the Shield Wall destroyed, it's just a matter of time before the Metal Heads overwhelm us. You should just go through the rift back to your own time, Jak, and get away from this horrible place.

As that happens, Jak gets round to slipping the Precursor Stone inside the machine.

Daxter: I see your point. Come on, Jak.

Jak: This place is worth fighting for!

Ashelin (voice): We'll hold out as long as we can! Fare well!

The gun is then loaded, while at the same time, the comm hangs up.

Jak: Precursor Stone. Gun. Nest!

Daxter: Light 'er up, padre!

Jak: HA! HA! HA! Eat this!

The gun shoots a piercing green beam over to a wall, drilling a path through to the nest.

Daxter: That ought to wake 'em up!

Jak: Let's go take care of business!

Daxter: What? You mean, go in there? Ahh, I'm right behind you!

He hides behind Jak's back as he heads over to the main nest. And it is there the two meet up with Metal Kor.

Don't You Recognize Him?EditKor: Finally, you've decided to join us and you brought the Precursor Stone. Good. The boy will now play his final part.

The kid wis seen in a black energy sphere near Kor, in an unconscious state.

Jak: Not this time.

Kor: Oh, but this child is such a part of this! Such a part of you! Don't you recognize him? The boy is you, Jak! And this place... this is where you began, in the future!

Jak: But how...?

Kor: You were hidden in the past on the hope that you would gain the skills to face me today. But Onin was wrong! Now that you've been altered with Dark Eco, the stone will never open for you. Your younger self, however, still has the pure gift! He alone can awaken the Stone and the Precursor entity, which sleeps inside!

Jak: This stone is a Precursor?

Kor: The last Precursor egg! Mar was clever. He covered his tracks well through time, hiding his last egg from me, and building the shield and city to defend it! It has been a long siege. But today, I will finally feed on the last Precursor Life Force!

Daxter: Ah, I think you're forgetting one little thing, Metalo-Maniac! We've got the Precursor Stone!

Kor: Not for long!

He charges with energy, and launches it towards the pair, showering them in rubble. But then... from out of the wrecks, Jak comes back out in his Dark form.

Kor: DIE!

They fight against him.

Kor Drops DownEditAt the second stage, he drops from his position suspended over a pit and chase the pair. They fight again and bring him down to size.

The CelebrationEditKor starts to flash. He brings out his wings and tries to fly through the Rift Ring, but he crashes into the side before exploding. His head falls down near young Jak and the Precursor Stone. Speaking of which... the boy went towards it and out comes a human-like figure made of light.

Jak: Oh man... a Precursor.

Oracle: It is finished... Our ancient enemy is no more. Take hope brave one! The terrible darkness inside you is now balanced by a glorious light! We will meet again...

The light figure went into the ring and then, from the entrance to the Nest, the Lurker balloon comes into view, with Keira, the two Samoses and the balloon on it.

Keira: We haven't much time. I've set the coordinates back to our village. Let's go home, everyone.

Jak: But we are home.

Old Samos: Keira, I'm afraid your Rift Rider must be used to send young Jak here to a place where he will grow up safe from harm. He must become old enough to complete the destiny he has fulfilled today.

Jak goes towards the kid and places him on the raft.

Young Samos: Wait a minute! It's you! I mean... it's me! I have to take him back and watch over him, don't I? Ah, grub roots! Talk about being in the wrong time at the right place!

Jak: Hey kid... you take care. Oh... and trust me on this...

He sits down near him.

Jak: Stay away from any wumpbee nests on your ninth birthday, okay?

The kid nods briskly.

Keira: I sure hope I built this replica right. I don't know if it...

Old Samos: It's perfect, Keira. This is the very machine we found... or will find later.

Keira: What? I just built this. After seeing the first one, I mean. It's based on what I remember from...

Daxter: Honey, the more you think about it, the more it hurts the head!

The ship then hovers up towards the Ring and is about to leave through it.

Young Samos: I'll take good care of the child! And don't worry... I'll be back in time for the celebration! Fare well!

They leaves the scene and through the ring.

Jak: Thanks Samos. Without you...

Old Samos: It's funny... The boy won't remember any of this.

While he speaks, the Rift Ring starts to crumble away into a bunch of rubble on the floor.

Jak: No... I do remember the light!

The scene fades out and shows itself at the Palace, where Ashelin and Torn were both seen in.

Brutter (voice): Your transport is ready, m'lady.

Ashelin: Thank you, Captain Brutter. Come on... we'll be late for the party at Daxter's new place.

Torn: I've got so much work to do. Besides, it's not my thing.

Ashelin: Then hut!

Torn gets up instantly.

Ashelin: As the new governor of this city, I order the Commander of the New Krimzon Guard to escort me to an official function. Is that understood?

Torn: Yes sir! I mean, yes ma'am! I mean...

Ashelin: You can start rebuilding the city tomorrow. Tonight, we get to celebrate with our new friends. Besides, tough guy, I'm dying to see you dance.

Torn: Not likely.

The scene then changes again to what was the Hip Hog Heaven saloon. And from the back of the bar, Daxter rushes towards the front door.

Daxter: Welcome to the Naughty Ottsel! The hippest, happenest, happiest joint in town!

The saloon itself is already packed, having Jak, Keira, Samos, the Crocadog, Onin and Pecker already there.

Daxter: Check out the new decor!

Tess: Oooh... What a big trophy!

She looks up at a large Metal Head hung above the bar which is that of Kor.

Daxter: As if size matters?! I bagged that bad boy myself, baby!

Pecker: Onin says she doesn't know who has a bigger head. Him or you!

Samos: We must not forget Vin and all the others who sacrificed their lives to defeat this evil and protect the child.

Jak opens up one of his hands and shows the amulet of Mar in his hand.

Jak: I still can't believe... that little boy was me. Better times, huh?

He looks down with a depressing expression.

Keira: You miss him, huh? You know, the kid grows up to be a handsome hero!

She tries to kiss him, but... that is where they are interrupted by Daxter looking moody towards Onin, whom is seen drinking out of a blue vial.

Daxter: Hey! That's enough for you, lady. I'm cuttin' ya off!

But she zaps him and sends him to the other side of the counter.

Pecker: Trust me, she gets real mean when she's like this!

Daxter: What'd she say?

Pecker: Something about rubber tubing and certain parts of your mother... you don't wanna know...

Then, the main door opens, and through comes a large figure.

Daxter: Agghhh! A Metal Head!

He then hides behind the counter, leaving everyone else to look on at the face of the figure which is Sig!

Jak: SIG!

Daxter: SIG!

He pops his head up from behind Pecker.

Daxter: I knew that.

Jak: You okay?!

Sig: You cherries didn't think some nasty breath, giant sized lizard was gonna keep me from the biggest party in town did ya?!

Daxter: I knew you were too tough for 'em, big guy!

The scene then brings itself outside the saloon, where what once was a hip-hog is now stood a colorful statue of Daxter.

Samos: You saved the city and more, my boy! Metal Kor and his menace are history, and somewhere out there, an ancient race has begun again.

Jak: I'm just glad to be back home.

Samos: Yeah? Well, rest up. We've got a lot to do and so much time to do it in!

Jak: Don't say 'time!' The Rift Ring was destroyed, remember?

Sig: You know, my momma used to read bedtime stories about Mar when she'd tuck me in. She'd give me a nice glass of warm yakow milk... and my little Poopsy bear.

Daxter: Bedtime stories? Warm milk? Poopsy bear?! Buddy, ya just blew ya image!

In the background, both Pecker and the Croca-dog giggle quietly to each other.

Samos: I've got a feeling we'll meet Mar someday. He may be closer than you think.

Sig: You're the designated driver!

He gives Jak the Ruby Key to the city.

Jak: Oh no... I am done with adventures. Besides, you'll tell us before something happens next time, right Samos?

Samos places on an innocent look upon his face.


Pecker: Aarrk! You never know what the future may hold.

Daxter: Wait... you know something, don't ya feather breath?

Pecker: Who? Me? Ah... no... We're just, ah... guessing, right Samos? Today... tomorrow... Only time will tell!

Daxter: No! You're gonna tell... RIGHT NOW! Aggghhh!

He pounces towards Pecker.

Pecker: AAGGHH! Why you little... AAARRR...

They then start to fight each other, leaving a mass of orange fur and multicolored feathers to float in the wind.

Daxter: Oooh, dirty fighting! Dirty fighting!

Then, Sig comes to them and picks them up by the tails to halt the fighting.

Samos: Jak, my boy, the future awaits!

A firework display is seen across the sky, leaving the celebrations of a successful adventure to go through the night.
