Jak: That was close!

Keira: We've got to find a place to put down, this eco storm is getting worse! According to this, we're near the Brink. The edge of the world should be somewhere right below us.

Daxter: (groans) Why did I go on this crazy quest with you guys? "Find eco", "save the world"... I wanna go home!

Keira: Listen, if we can find a new eco source we may be able to help. Besides, I need to learn more about eco if I'm ever going to become a sage!

Jak: Relax, Dax. Could be worse.

Daxter: It's worse.

Keira: Agh, eco pirates! They hunt the frontier for helpless travelers.

Jak: Huh-ho, we're not helpless! Dax, get on the gun.

Daxter: Aye aye, sir!

Jak: Hang on!

Keira: They've caught us!

Phoenix: (laughs) Terribly sorry for the inconvenience. Please allow us to relieve you of your eco.

Keira: Nobody has eco anymore!

Phoenix: No doubt why these storms are growing worse; the world is tearing itself apart.

Jak: We're on a mission to find more eco and stop that from happening.

Phoenix: Ah, the last of the brave heroes. Well out here it's every man for himself, and we take what we can.

Jak: You'll get nothing here.

Phoenix: On the contrary, it seems I have stumbled on the world's most beautiful treasure.

Keira: You landed on the wrong Hellcat, pirate!

Phoenix: Listen, this can go easy...

Jak: Agh!

Phoenix: ...or hard.

Jak: (yells)

Keira: No, Jak! Eco is too unstable!

Phoenix You! You're one of them!

Daxter: Oopsy-daisy.

Jak: What happened?!

Daxter: Um, those crazy pirates must have shot us! Yeah, that's what happened.

Jak: Like it or not, we're going down! We've run out of eco!

Keira: Worse than that, we've run out of world!

Jak: The Brink!

Keira's Mission

Jak: Well, aside from a few dents and holes, this baby can still fly.

Keira: If we can find more green eco fuel. And if I can repair the power cells "the pirates" shot.

Daxter: What?

Keira: While I work on that, why don't you boys go scout around and see what you can find?

Daxter: What?! With all the crazy, trigger-fingered, fashionably dressed pirates running around? No way!

Keira: I'm sure you'll manage. But Jak, you can't transform anymore.

Jak: I know. Something's wrong.

Keira: If you can find some green eco, I'll have everything ready when you get back. You might need this. It's a fighting staff I put together. You can even attach gun mods—if we can find any out here.

Find green eco fuel (gameplay)

(Upon starting the mission.)

Daxter: Monsters! Take them out with a punch. Press the punch button.

On-screen: Press Square button for a forward attack.

(Upon approaching the stepping stones.)

Daxter: Use the button to jump across these stepping stones.

On-screen: Press X button to jump

(Upon approaching the high ledge up ahead.)

Daxter: That's a high ledge. Try double jumping by pressing the button while jumping.

On-screen: Jump and then press X button to double jump.

(Upon approaching more armadillos.)

Daxter: More monsters! Press the button, and give them the old spin kick!

On-screen: Press Circle button to spin kick.

(Upon approaching the upright pillar.)

Daxter: I bet that old pillar would make a good bridge. Go knock it over, Jak.

Daxter: Put your back into it!

(Upon approaching the spaced islets.)

Daxter: That jump may look impossible, but if you do a double jump and then press the button in the air, you'll get some extra hang time.

On-screen: Double jump and then press Circle button in the air.

(Upon clearing the armadillos in the following area.)
Daxter: Hey Jak, what do you suppose that is? It looks like eco, but it's all hard and pointy.

(While not proceeding with the mission.)

  • Hurry up, Jak! We need that power source.
  • I'm busy here. Come back when you have that fuel.

Return to the crash site (gameplay)

(Upon picking up the eco prism.)

Daxter: Jak-y boy, I do believe we just hit pay dirt! Let's mosey on down back to the Hellcat.

On-screen: Return to the crash site

(Upon approaching the next few armadillos.)

Daxter: Jak! Catch 'em with the uppercut!

On-screen: Press Square button followed by X button.

(Upon approaching the following few armadillos.)

Daxter: That's the stuff! Now try hitting the button while jumping for a diving punch.

On-screen: Jump and then press Square button.

(Upon approaching the jutting pole bridging the gap.)

Daxter: Jak, try swinging up on that pole to get across the gap. Jump towards the pole!

On-screen: Jump towards the pole to grab it.

(After passing through the gate at the end of the mission.)
Daxter: (sighs) Trees, fresh air, majestic cliffs... You know, if it weren't for the packs of flesh-eating armadillos, this would be a nice place. Now let's get out of here.

(When not proceeding with the mission.)
Daxter: Come on, we got to show this thing to Keira.

Hellcat Repaired

Jak: Look what I found. This crystal seems to be full of green eco, and it's warm.

Keira: This is amazing!

Daxter: What? What? Let me see, let me see! Are we rich?

Keira: This crystal is acting like an eco prism; it's slowly taking dark eco and converting into green! If I could speed that up– I've got an idea!

Keira: Okay, the crystal is hooked into the fuel relays. I've added a power condenser to focus the output and a couple of loop circuits to stabilize the eco flow. Hey if this works, we should be able to run on this baby for a long time!

Jak: Everyone, cross your fingers.

Daxter: You know, I've never been able to do that.

Jak: Huh-ho yeah, now we're in business!

Keira: You realize we just a found a way to convert dark eco into green? Do you know what this means?

Jak: It means we may be able to create other colors of eco!

Keira: Maybe, with a little research and the right tools!

Jak: Looks like our swashbuckling friends are at it again.

Keira: We need to help that airship, Jak!

Jak: Buckle up!

Shoot down the pirate raiders (gameplay)

(At the start.)

Keira: Jak, before we get into a fight, let's run a quick systems check.

(Upon approaching the nearby boulders.)

Keira: Okay, I'm releasing your pitch. Fly up for me, Jak!

On-screen: Pitch plane up

On-screen: Use the analog stick to pull up!

Keira: Look out for those rocks!

On-screen: Fly up to avoid those rocks

(Upon approaching the following archway.)

Keira: Okay, now the yaw controls. Turn toward that archway for me, Jak!

On-screen: Follow yellow objective arrows. Fly under archway.

Keira: Okay! Careful now! Use the air brake to slow down.

On-screen: Press Square button to brake.

(Upon approaching the pillar situated in front of a mountain.)

Keira: Make a hard turn around that pillar. Hit the air brakes and bank.

(On PS2.)
On-screen: Hard turn: Square button + left analog stick

(On PSP.)
On-screen: Hard turn: Square + analog stick

(Upon turning to face the archway in the distance.)

Keira: Good. Now let's stress the boosters!

On-screen: Press X button to boost.

(Upon passing through the archway.)
On-screen: You can invert the flight controls in the Options menu.

(Upon approaching the Behemoth in the distance.)

Skyheed (communicator): This is the ACS Behemoth. We have come under attack by sky pirates. Is anyone there?

Daxter: Not so tough now, are you pirate?

(Upon destroying an enemy fighter for the second time.)

Daxter: Great shooting, Jak! Nothing left of that guy but scrap metal!

Keira: Come to think of it, we should hold on to any scrap we find. Never know when it might come in handy.

(After clearing the first three trios of fighters.)

Daxter: Jak, they're on our six! Do a barrel roll, try a somersault! Anything!

On-screen: Press the up button to pull a loop.

(Until you execute a loop.)
On-screen: Press the up button to pull a loop.

(Upon successfully causing assailant fighters to overshoot past your plane by executing a loop.)
Daxter: It worked!

(Upon failing to cause assailant fighters to overshoot past your plane after executing a loop.)
Keira: Nice loop, hot shot, but it's only gonna trick enemies that are actually chasing after you.

(Upon completing the mission.)
On-screen: Mission Complete!

Duke Skyheed

Skyheed: Impressive flying, friend. I am Duke Skyheed, leader of the Aeropan people, and protector of the sacred eco.

Keira: I'm Keira, and this is Jak.

Skyheed: Thank you for helping us deal with those dreadful vagabonds. Ever since we began looking for the Eco Core, the pirates have increased their attacks on us. I am surprised to find anyone out here flying solo.

Jak: The Eco Core?

Skyheed: Yes, one of the famed and mythic sources from where all eco flows.

Keira: Oh my goodness, we're–...

Jak: ...happy to help.

Skyheed: Well, do make yourself comfortable. The enemies of the Sky Pirates are most certainly our allies. I noticed your ship is quite damaged. Let us escort you to our grand city Aeropa, where you can get repairs before you continue your quest.

Buy eco skills from Keira (gameplay)

(Upon approaching the door.)

Keira (communicator): Come see me by the Danger Course when you have dark eco, so I can practice my eco skills.

On-screen: Visit Keira to purchase new powers and upgrades

Daxter: Finally, some shore leave. I don't know about you Jak, but I could definitely go for a bath, a hot oil massage—(murmurs)—and a game of cards, though probably not in that order.

(After venturing into the city.)

Aeropan male
  • I've heard about him.
  • What a stranger. Who is he?

(Upon talking to Keira for the first time.)

Keira: Look Jak, I broke down the dark eco into colored eco!

On-screen: Trade Dark Eco for new skills from Keira.

(After talking to Keira.)
Skyheed (communicator): Well, Jak! What do you think of our magnificent city? When you're done sightseeing, come meet with me at the Eco Seeker sanctum.

The Eco Seeker

Skyheed: Welcome back! I trust your stay with us has been enlightening.

Jak: We're still a few answers short.

Ruskin: (chuckle) And I have questions for you as well! For instance, why are you out here on the Brink?!

Keira: We too are looking for a new eco source to help save the world.

Skyheed: A noble pursuit. Perhaps we can be of some assistance.

Skyheed: It is called the Eco Seeker, and it is said to point to any major eco source. We had hoped it would help us find the Eco Core; alas, we were unable to make it work.

Jak: Let me try. I have... certain abilities.

Skyheed: Yes I've heard of you, Jak. We may be on the edge of the world here but, stories do reach us. Chancellor?

Jak: I-I can't... I can't do it. Too much power... darkness everywhere...

Keira: If you don't mind, I'd like to study it. You see, I'm, well, I'm training to become an eco sage.

Skyheed: Very well. I will grant your request on one condition: that you prove to us you can protect the seeker orb at all costs. Agreed?

Jak: Agreed.

Ruskin: Then go, and face the Danger Course. If, by some chance, you beat it, the seeker will be yours for a week.

Beat the Danger Course (gameplay)

(Some time after the previous cutscene ends.)

Daxter: (chuckles) The joke's on them! If there's one thing we're good at, it's arbitrary platforming challenges, mixed with heavy gunplay.

(After entering the entry hall to the Danger Course.)
Ruskin (communicator): Welcome to the Danger Course, mainlander. Proceed down the hall if you're ready to prove your mettle.

(Upon approaching the Blaster attachment.)

Ruskin (communicator): Pick up that Blaster mod and attach it to that club of yours.

On-screen: Pick up the Blaster Mod

(Upon picking up the Blaster attachment.)

On-screen: You received the Blaster mod

Ruskin (communicator): Now try discharging your weapon.

(On PS2.)
On-screen: Press R1 to discharge your blaster.

(On PSP.)
On-screen: Press Triangle button to fire.

(If you do not break the crates after discharging the blaster for the first time.)

On-screen: Shoot the crates for extra blaster rounds

(After discharging the blaster for the first time.)
Ruskin (communicator): Enough play! Begin the Danger Course!

(Upon entering the Danger Course.)

Ruskin (communicator): Get rid of any pirates you see as quickly as possible.

On-screen: Shoot the pirates as quickly as possible

(After rounding the first corner.)
Daxter: Hmm... Some of these pirates look kinda familiar.

(Upon shooting a civilian target.)

Ruskin (communicator): Hold your fire! That is a citizen! Shooting them will deduct points from your score.

On-screen: Shooting civilians will deduct points

(After shooting some targets in the following room.)
Daxter: Right between the eyes!

(Upon approaching the turret course.)
Ruskin (communicator): Hmm. Let's see how you deal with this.

(Midway through the turret course.)
Daxter: Serpentine, Jak! Serpentine!

(Upon approaching the platforming course.)

Ruskin (communicator): Now we'll see how light you are on your feet. Shoot the bullseye to activate new targets.

On-screen: Shoot the bullseye to turn it over

(Upon finishing the platforming course.)
Daxter: That's some fancy shooting Jak. Mighty fancy.

(Upon approaching the Far Drop-themed course.)
Ruskin (communicator): Sky pirates are detestable creatures, skulking on the fringes of civilization and preying on the weak. They are cowards by nature; but, with effective leadership, they could present a great threat to our way of life.

(Upon failing.)

Ruskin (communicator)
  • Not up to snuff!
  • This will not do, mainlander!

(After failing the third round.)
Ruskin (communicator): Pathetic!

(After achieving goal or bronze.)

Ruskin (communicator)
  • Hmm. Adequate.
  • Hmm. Passable.

(After achieving silver or gold.)

Ruskin (communicator)
  • Not bad, not bad at all.
  • The rumors about you are true, it would seem.
  • You live up to your reputation Jak. I will relay the good news to his grace.

(After finishing the Danger Course.)

Ruskin (communicator): That will do. Return to the sanctum and meet with his grace.

Daxter: What did I tell you? Nothing to worry about!

Way Down in the Hole

Daxter: (yells)

Daxter: (heaves)

Daxter: Jak? Uh, buddy? (chuckles) Pal... of mine? Where'd you go?

Daxter: (yells) Jimmy nutbar!

Daxter: No!

Dark Daxter: (roars)

Escape from the sewers (gameplay)

(Upon approaching the first few voltaic eels.)

Dark Daxter: Mutants... The eco flows have changed everything down here.

(Upon approaching the following door.)
On-screen: To break down doors, Daxter must be Frenzied with a full Dark Power Gauge.

(Randomly throughout the mission.)

Dark Daxter
  • Faster, faster, faster!
  • Come here spider... I have some plans for you.
  • Hey which of you little mutants would like to fly?
  • Yes mutants, come to me. Put your delicious selves within my reach.
  • (inhales, exhales) With this power, I could shake the world! (laughs) Who's next?

On-screen: Defeat mutants to collect more Dark Eco.

(Randomly when near dark eco crystals.)

Dark Daxter
  • So much dark eco hiding down here... I got to have it!
  • These crystals hum with dark eco. I must tap their power.

On-screen: Strike crystals while Frenzied to quickly fill the Dark Power Gauge.

(Upon encountering a ghoul spider for the first time.)

Dark Daxter: Sticky webbing... Is this a joke little spider? Come closer, we'll see who's laughing.

On-screen: Press Square button near an enemy to pick it up, and again to throw it.

(Upon throwing a ghoul spider for the first time.)

Dark Daxter: (laughs) They pop! Who knew spiders could be this much fun?

On-screen: Ghoul Spiders are full of sticky webbing that slow Daxter but also cover gaps.

(Upon approaching the set of pistons near the ghoul spiders.)
On-screen: Throw spiders with Square to clog the pistons.

(Upon approaching the rotating arm ahead of the pistons.)
On-screen: Press Circle to pound the ground, which flips batteries and stuns enemies.

(Upon being hit by an enemy several times.)
On-screen: Enemy fire will bounce off Daxter in Frenzy Mode.

(Upon finishing the mission.)
Dark Daxter: (yawns) No, uh-uh. Not done playin' yet.

Rip and Run

Daxter: Whew. Hey, Jak! You won't believe what just happened to me–...

Jak: Daxter! Dax! Not now.

Skyheed: You have proven yourselves truly worthy. As our ancestors warned us, dark eco is a dangerous weapon not to be trifled with. I hope with this, you can find the more fair light eco.

Ruskin: My Duke! Sky pirates!

Keira: Hey!

Phoenix: Thank you all for your kind assistance.

Jak: Keira! No!

Jak: Keira!

Jak: I'm going after them! Come on, Dax!

Go after Phoenix (gameplay)

Daxter: [Okay,] let's get to the hangar and fire up the Hellcat![a]

(When not proceeding with the mission.)

Daxter: I thought you wanted to save Keira?!

Daxter: Fine, don't save Keira. We can hang out here...

Daxter: ...I'm kidding you dope, let's go!

(At the start of the chase.)

On-screen: Chase Sky Pirate

Phoenix: I would love to stay and chat, but I have what I came for! So I really must be on my way.

(Some time after entering the volcano.)
Daxter: Look out for the lava! Fly around it, Jak!

(Upon approaching the first exit.)
Phoenix: I respect your tenacity, but I really must be going. You'll never overtake me out in the open!

(After exiting the volcano.)

Jak: Dax, quick! Get into the grappling tube. I'm gonna grapple Phoenix's ship!

On-screen: HOLD then RELEASE Circle to fire grapple.

On-screen: Hold Circle button to aim, release to fire.

Daxter: What are you doing? (exclaims)

(The preceding line will continue if you do not immediately aim for Phoenix's ship.)
Daxter: (exclaims) Help! (mutters, groans) Oh! Oh, my spine!

(After sending Daxter to Phoenix's ship the first time.)
Jak: Dax! See what you can do to slow him down.

(Upon exiting the volcano for the second time.)
Phoenix: Nice try, but I'm afraid you're going to have to do better than that if you're going to catch me.

(After sending Daxter to Phoenix's ship the second time.)

Phoenix: Oh, very clever, sending your hamster to do your dirty work. But this setback is only temporary!

Daxter: Hamster?! That sir, is an insult. We demand satisfaction!

(After finishing the second and third Daxterjack.)
Phoenix: Oh no, not again!

(Upon approaching the steam valves.)
Daxter: Oh man, this is gonna end bad! Hit those valves to shut off the steam!

(After exiting the volcano for the third time.)
Phoenix: A worthy effort. But it looks like this round goes to me!

(After sending Daxter to Phoenix's ship the third time.)
Phoenix: (laughs) So long, boy! And thanks for all the– oh, bother!

(Upon shooting Phoenix's plane.)

Keira: Stop shooting, Jak! I'm on board!

Keira: Hello?! Are you trying to get me killed?!

(Sometimes upon losing.)

Phoenix: A worthy effort. But it looks like this round goes to me!

(Upon losing.)

On-screen: Sky Pirate Escaped

Jak, Ambushed

Daxter: Slow down, Jak! We just left some of my short fur behind.

Jak: I've got Phoenix's ship on the scope! He's not gonna get away that easy.

Phoenix (communicator): So it's just you and me, Jak; a gentlemen's game of fox and hound. But ask yourself, which is which?

Keira (communicator): Jak, don't! It's a–...

Jak: He's headed for those falls.

Daxter: We got him! Like shooting fish in a, in a, uh... waterfall barrel.

Phoenix (communicator): Sorry old chap, but the first rule of gentlemen's combat is: there are no rules!

Daxter: Woah! Serious piratage!

Jak: It's a trap!

Phoenix (communicator): You're lucky I like you, Jak; normally you'd already be a ball of flame.

Phoenix (communicator): Shoot his engines and let him land—the hard way!

Daxter: Mayday, mayday! Going down!

Daxter: Killer robots? Come on.

(Upon entering a small trench.)

Daxter: Don't stop! Just keep running!

On-screen: Recharge Eco Powers by standing on Precursor totem.

(After approaching another small trench.)

Daxter: (yells) More trees! Move, Jak!

On-screen: Keep running!

(Upon reaching the end and approaching an open area with a shield on the other end.)
Daxter: A force field? This island just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

(While battling sawbots.)

  • Warranty's expired.
  • Back off, mini-fridge!
  • (beeps) Does not compute.

The Old Man and the Tree

Castaway: 'ello?

Jak: Woah!

Castaway: (laughs)

Jak: (chuckles)

Castaway: You startle easy, don't you? Mmm, just as I thought... You've been touched by the darkness.

Jak: Woah, h-how did you?..

Castaway: I know dark eco when I see it, son. And I could see that you saw what I saw when I said that I saw it!

Jak: Huh. Okay. W-who are you?

Castaway: Huh, good question. I know a lot, but I don't know that.

Jak: W-what are you doing way out here?

Castaway: Wow, that's two! Don't know that either.

Jak: Do you know anything about these dangerous robots out here?

Castaway: Eh, a bit. I made 'em to help me on the island, but they turned against me.

Jak: W-woah, you, you made those robots?

Castaway: Something wrong with your ears, son? Yes I made them, and each one of 'em is no good to the titanium bone!

Jak: Well, if you're good with mechanics, I mean, my ship could really use some–...

Castaway: Yes, yes, son, I took a look at that ship of yours, the fusion rods are shot to Shiloh, without a little juice well you're stuck here with me!

Jak: (sighs) Please tell me you can fix the plane.

Castaway: Maybe, but I'd need a velonium power pod, and there's only one of those babies on the whole dang island.

Jak: Tell me where it is, and I will get it.

Castaway: Eh, it's your funeral. The pod's on my Uber-Bot 888, the biggest, nastiest robot I ever did build! You get his power pod and I'll get your flyer flying again! (laughs)

Retrieve velonium power pod (gameplay)

(After passing through the first set of wooden gates and using the turn wheel.)
Daxter: Um, so what exactly did we sign up for again?

  • Woo hoo-hoo, yeah!
  • Oops. Did you need that?
  • You dropped something there, buddy.

(Upon picking off all the robot's armor.)
Daxter: Hey robot, cover your shame!

(While successfully trapping the Uber-Bot with a Construct.)

  • Snagged him!
  • Whew! That was a close shave.

(When the Uber-Bot begins shooting Jak with his laser. Daxter will repeat this line at the very end of the fight.)
Daxter: Hit him in the chest with the amplifier.

(Upon destroying the Uber-Bot.)
Daxter: Take that you big bag of bolts! We bad.

(After passing through the first gate and it locks behind you.)

On-screen: Head to fixed-up Hellcat

Daxter: You heard the man. Let's go fix up the Hellcat and rescue Keira from those flying jerkwads!

  • Go for her turrets, Jak!
  • Jak, take out the turrets!

(After destroying all turrets.)

Daxter: Woohoo hoo-hoo! We got 'em!

Phoenix: Let him land, boys. I think he's proven himself more than determined.

(When the timer at any stage of the battle gets too low.)
Daxter: Hurry up, Jak! We don't have much time left!

(Upon failing the mission.)
Phoenix: You won't be catching me today, gentlemen.


Klout: Well, look what we've got here.

Jak: Where's Keira?

Klout: She's being "entertained" by the Captain (laughs)... If you know what I mean.

Keira: Jak!

Jak: Keira! Are you all right?

Keira: Phoenix, don't!

Jak: Phoenix? What, you're on a first name basis now?!

Keira: You shouldn't have come here.

Phoenix: On the contrary, now this monster has a chance to see what he truly is. And this little orb will show us the way.

Keira: No! Both of you! Stop!

Keira: (sighs) We have to go get it back. And I want a truce between you two until we do.

Jak: But he's–...

Keira: A truce! Now! Shake on it.

Keira: Now, let's go get back the only hope we have!

Customize your plane (gameplay)

(After the previous cutscene ends.)

Keira (communicator): Come see me when you have dark eco, so I can practice my sage eco skills.

Klout (communicator): The Captain told me to let you use our hangar. (grumbles) You'll be able to fit your plane with any mods you've found.

(After talking to Keira for the first time on the Phantom Blade.)
Keira: Come back any time and I'll convert your dark eco into colored eco!

(Upon entering the hangar.)
Klout (communicator): Use that console there to outfit your ships and upgrade your mods. I'll even sell you some mods if you've got scrap metal to trade. You'll get no discounts from me, though.

Klout (communicator): He's also letting you use one of our twin engine Sky Raiders. Bit too generous if you ask me...

Land on Brink Island and search volcano for Eco Seeker (gameplay)

(Before landing on Brink Island.)

Castaway: I don't know what you boys did up there, but I saw something very shiny and very expensive fall into the volcano. Now, if you have a mind to, you can take the path through the mountain and retrieve it!

On-screen: Search for the Seeker along the volcano path

(Upon approaching the Precursor idol near the volcano entrance.)
Daxter: Hey look! It's another one of those idol thingies.

(After receiving the Eco Amplifier power.)
On-screen: Jak gained the Eco Power Eco Rocket Jump

(On PS2.)
On-screen: Rocket Jump: L2 + X

(On PSP.)
On-screen: Rocket Jump Press the down button to activate, then X button to launch.

(Upon approaching the yellow eco clouds.)
Daxter: Hey, yellow gas. We can use that for extra boost! It's like discount rocket fuel.

(After entering the volcano and being waved at by Phoenix.)
Phoenix (communicator): Jak, this is Phoenix. Let's say we make this interesting and see who gets the seeker first.

(After making your way into the volcano near the swinging poles.)
Daxter: Cave in! Run for it, Jak!

(As the lava rises the first time.)
Phoenix (communicator): Things getting a little hot for you, Jak? The lava is rising. I would hurry up!

(As the lava rises the second time.)
Phoenix (communicator): Looks like I'm in the lead. Better pick up the pace!

(As the lava rises the third time.)
Phoenix (communicator): Keira will be so happy when I come back with the seeker. See you at the galleon... or not!

(After picking up the Eco Seeker.)
On-screen: You retrieved the Eco Seeker

(Upon retrieving the Eco Seeker.)
Phoenix (communicator): Looks like I made a wrong turn... Seems you win, old chap.

Return to the galleon (gameplay)

Castaway: So, where are we going, sonny?

Daxter: (yells) What are you doing here?!

Castaway: (laughs) I've been on that island longer than I can remember. And you boys are my ticket off!

Daxter: Well don't get too excited just yet; we crash into your island on a fairly regular basis.

Far Drop Bound

Jak: Look, I found this guy... or, well maybe he found me, but... Anyway, he seems pretty good with mechanics and, I think he could help us.

Phoenix: Do you know who you are, old man?

Castaway: Nope! This your ship? Nice gearing! Good coupling on the steering motivator, eh, so! Where's this little device that everyone thinks can save the world?

Castaway: Well, well, well... Very nice manufacturing indeed, good tolerances too, top notch! Can't help you.

Jak: But you said–...

Castaway: I know what I said, but I also know trouble when I see it; the kind of trouble I've been trying to avoid.

Keira: You remember something?

Castaway: Maybe... Yes... I-I don't know, uh... I can see, huge warehouses filled with eco, vast and dark... stacked as high as the eyes could see-hee.

Keira: Please, sir, I, we need to find a new source of eco to help put the world back in balance. Please.

Castaway: You are the prettiest face I've seen in some time. This is nothing but trouble, but for you my dear, I'll do my best.

Castaway: See, this whole device has a self-fusing locking mechanism so not everyone can use, or misuse, the device. If you just time the locking clock and then reverse the polarity... presto!

Keira: The seeker doesn't have much power left. I think it's pointing to a new energy fuel cell.

Jak: Maybe if we power it up it will work better.

Phoenix: It's pointing directly over the Brink—dangerous, to say the least.

Jak: Look, we don't have a choice. The eco storms are getting worse.

Phoenix: Agreed. Klout, prepare to sail. But first set us on a heading for Far Drop, we'll need supplies for the long voyage. (laughs) Once again dear friends, into the breach!

Get supplies from Far Drop (gameplay)

Keira (communicator): Jak, one of the pirates scrounged up an old piece of Precursor technology. With a little work, I might be able to patch it into your Gunstaff.

On-screen: New Gun Mod available in the Workshop

(On PS2 only.)
On-screen: Hold down R1 button to engage the Vulcan's rapid fire mode.

Phoenix (communicator): Jak, old boy! I need someone to fly down to Far Drop and gather supplies for the coming journey. Would you be so kind as to make the trip? I'd go myself, but someone shot my engines full of holes, and I must stay aboard to fix them.

On-screen: Fly down to Far Drop and gather supplies

Mutants Run Amok

Barter: Me Barter, big time smuggler. Me a top dog in Far Drop.

Jak: Seems it's a tough town.

Jak: Who are those dark creatures?

Barter: Dark mutants? They show up few months ago, been fighting 'em big time ever since. I need strong fists to protect me goods! I pay you well.

Jak: What we need are supplies.

Barter: (chuckles) Then me give you all supplies you need if protect Barter's stores from dark creatures.

Defeat the dark mutants (gameplay)

(After the previous cutscene.)
Barter (communicator): Go into city, there is path to my bar.

(Upon approaching the city square.)

Alpha mutant: (roars)

Daxter: I don't like the look of that monkey.

Barter (communicator): Aw, look at that! Tasty apes now killing machines. That's how it always with dark eco.

(When not continuing with the mission.)

Barter (communicator)
  • (humphs) Go! Do something!
  • Ugh, hurry up. No stopping!

(Upon approaching Barter's tavern.)
Barter (communicator): Aw, they're eating my bar! Go!

(Upon failing to defend the tavern.)
Barter (communicator): Ugh, this come out of your pay, boy!

(After defending the tavern.)

Barter (communicator): Baw, hey! You! No slacking! Mutants breaking generator. Go out front, and take aeropult.

On-screen: Use the Aeropult to reach the power station

Daxter: Oh yeah, this looks safe.

(Upon approaching an electrified corridor.)
Daxter: Them crystals give me an idea.

(Upon failing to defend the generator.)
Barter (communicator): That generator much expensive, you incompetent rube!

(After defending the generator.)
Barter (communicator): Yes, very nice! You good monkey killer.

(Upon approaching the wheel in the generator room.)
On-screen: Press Triangle button to turn wheel.

(Upon approaching the nearby Precursor idol.)
Daxter: Hey-hey! It's another idol!

Daxter: Cabbage, huh? Remind me to never stand behind one of these guys.

(Upon approaching the cabbage farms.)

Barter (communicator): Hmph! Eels ruin cabbages? Unforgivable! Mash them! Mash them all!

On-screen: Chase off the ravenous eels!

(Upon failing to save the cabbages.)
Barter (communicator): Aw, why you not save my cabbages? (grunts and growls) Now we have nothing left to pickle.

(After saving the cabbages.)
Barter (communicator): Very good! Yes, yes!

(After landing from the aeropult for a second time.)

Daxter: There's that monkey again. After him!

Barter (communicator): Hmph, you! You not done! We have thirty children, huh? Orphans getting eaten by apes! You! Go help them, now!

On-screen: Defeat the mutants savaging the orphanage

(Upon failing to defend the orphanage.)
Daxter: Oh, the orphans!

(After defending the orphanage.)

Barter (communicator): Good! Maybe now they show up to work on time!

Barter (communicator): Uh, look around. Those thieving children have aeropult somewhere.

(After jumping near a fast-moving platform without using Eco Reflexes.)

Daxter: Are you nuts? It's moving way too fast!

On-screen: Use Eco Reflexes to slow down speedy platforms

(When any of the properties sustain more than half damage, indicated by the falling number of scrap.)
Barter (communicator): It's breaking up, it is!

(Upon approaching the loading docks with the crane.)

Barter (communicator): Baw, you still on clock! Mutants have taken over crane down by the docks. Go!

On-screen: Chase the mutants away from the crane

Daxter: That monkey's not getting away this time!

(After defeating the first two apes on the docks.)

Barter (communicator): Baw, enough is enough! I have had it with these apes on mother's favorite crane!

Daxter: Go on Jak, use an eco construct to knock those apes off the crane.

On-screen: Use Eco Construct on the Crane

(Upon failing to protect the crane.)
Barter (communicator): That was mother's favorite crane!

(After protecting the crane.)
Daxter: All right Jak, time to settle this mano a... monkey.

(While not headed directly to the city square.)

Daxter: He's headed back into town. Shake a leg, Jak!

On-screen: Head back into the city and stop that ape!

(While still not headed directly into the city square.)
Daxter: That monkey's not getting away this time.

(After the alpha mutant crushes the statue.)
Daxter: Dude, he wants to do that to your face!

(Randomly in the fight.)
Daxter: Um, maybe we should talk this one out.

(When the alpha mutant enters rage mode.)

  • He's gone ape!
  • Wooh, he's getting feisty!

(Upon being seized by the alpha mutant.)

  • Snap out of it, Jak!
  • The things I gotta do...
  • Hold on, Jak. I'm a-comin'!
  • Get your hands off him, you damn dirty ape!

(After being seized by the alpha mutant and failing to get Daxter to break Jak free.)

  • Yeep!
  • Ooh, that's gotta hurt.

(Upon defeating the mutant ape.)
Daxter: Looks like you made a monkey out of him. (laughs) Sorry, I can't help myself sometimes.

Keira (communicator): Nice work, hero. If you're all done beating up mutants, go to the tavern and get those supplies.

On-screen: Go to tavern for supplies

Barter's Brawls

Barter: (grunts) You best protection money buy, Jak. Barter already load you supplies on ship. But uh, Barter need one last thing... I got little something you want, it yours if you liven up place. How about good old-fashioned bar brawl, hmm? For the road. Get place rocking, and me give you special prize.

Jak: I could use some exercise.

Daxter: Hey, knock it off! You big bully!

Daxter: That's it! It's go time, baby!

Daxter: Oops! (chuckles) Uh, he did it.

Get supplies from tavern (gameplay)

(After the previous cutscene ends.)
Daxter: Huh, classy joint. Elegant decor, smells (sniffs) wooh... a bit like an armpit.

Bring supplies to the galleon (gameplay)

Keira (communicator): The Phantom Blade is loaded up and ready to go. We're waiting on you!

On-screen: Return to Phantom Blade

Barter: Hmm, you start brawl, yes? I make worth you while.

Point Beyond the Brink

Phoenix: Well done! You are now an honorary pirate! Ah, I remember my first heady days as captain of an outlaw crew... the camaraderie, the smell of burning eco... the pillage. As a special member of this crew, you are now my official helmsman. Feel free to enter coordinates and steer the ship as you see fit!

Keira: Sorry to rain on the celebration, but I've got some bad news. The Eco Seeker doesn't seem to have enough light eco to operate.

Phoenix: Then we're in luck. I know of an old research station used by the Aeropans. It's abandoned now, but we did pick up some faint readings for light eco there long ago.

Jak: Why didn't you just go get it? A stash of light eco could fund this little pirate band of yours for a hundred years. (chuckles) Or were you afraid of the Aeropans?

Phoenix: I am many things, but I am not fearful of the Aeropans. Of that you can be sure!

Keira: Jak, is it worth a shot?

Jak: Only one way to find out.

Search for light eco (gameplay)

(After the previous cutscene ends.)
Klout (communicator): We recovered an Aeropan Heavy Bomber on one of our raids, and the Cap'n says it's yours if you want it. She's waiting down in the hangar.

(After exiting the Phantom Blade.)
Keira (communicator): Fascinating... there's an excavation here that goes deep into the planet. I wonder if–... (screams)

Jak: Keira! We have to go save her.

(After landing on the rig.)
Keira (communicator): Jak, I'll try to meet you guys further along the way.

(After entering the room with a Precursor idol.)

Daxter: Hey, it looks like the Aeropans wired this button to that gate over there, right? Then, why does this button look like Precursor tech?

Daxter: Hey Jak, over to the side there! Looks like the scientists were trying to tap one of those Precursor power idol thingies too.

(After receiving the new eco power.)

On-screen: Jak gained the Eco Power Eco Teleport

Daxter: Hey Jak, did you hear something? I think someone didn't like us touching the goods.

Daxter: (yells) Ape! Ape! Giant ape!

(After clearing the mutant apes and nearing the idol.)

(On PS2.)
On-screen: Eco Teleport: Hold L2 and then press R1 to switch places with targeted idol.

(On PSP.)
On-screen: Eco Teleport: Press the down button to switch places with targeted idol.

(After approaching the first comatose mutant ape.)
Daxter: Woah! I think this used to be one of those creatures we found out along the Brink.

The Chair

(Cut to flashback.)

Jak: (yells)

Computer voice: Dark eco injection cycle complete.

(End flashback.)

Jak: Someone's been experimenting with dark eco.

Jak: Whoever did this should be destroyed!

Extracting Light Eco

Jak: Looks like you already found the goodies.

Keira: I think this is the main control room! And these diagrams... If I can get this pump working again, we'll be in business.

Daxter: Hurry up, will you? This place gives me the creeps.

Daxter: Hmm, maybe this will do something.

Jak: Hey, would y–... Dax, don't touch anything.

Daxter: I didn't do it!

Jak: I'll keep 'em back, Keira. You get this thing working fast!

Light Eco, Dark Daxter

Keira: I think I've got it!

Keira: Now all it needs (grunts) is a little juice.

Jak: I've seen panels like this before...

Daxter: Bingo!

Jak: You did it!

Keira: No, we did it!

Jak: Let's get the eco out of here.

Daxter: Oh yeah, a candy machine!

Daxter: Come on, give it up. Give me some grub!

Daxter: Hey, wait up... What the! Hey! Don't mess with the fur!

Daxter: (grunts)

Daxter: (spits) Okay, that's it! Who wants some?

Escape the laser lab (gameplay)

(Upon approaching the security terminal.)

Dark Daxter: What's this, a computer? Let's see how it works if I give it a little kick!

On-screen: Destroy security terminals to override the lab's lockdown.

(While failing to destroy the security terminals.)

Dark Daxter: If this dusty lab won't let me through, I'll just have to tear it apart!

On-screen: Look for security terminals to destroy

(After destroying the security terminal.)
Computer voice: Warning: Terminal breach in eco polarization lab. Initiating containment procedures.

Computer voice: Personnel exposed to dark eco radiation. Please remain still for thermal decontamination. All others should seek out lab shielding immediately.

(After taking out all the enemies causing the laser to activate.)

Computer voice: Core laser decontamination system active.

Computer voice: Cascading security failure detected in experiment lab.

(Upon approaching the next room with more enemies.)

Dark Daxter: This laser burns even dark eco creatures. Was this lab designed to contain them?

On-screen: Flip batteries with Circle and bend the laser

(Upon approaching a row of flames.)

Dark Daxter: Let's see how these webs hold up under a little fire!

On-screen: Burn down webbing by carrying fire while in Frenzy mode

(Upon running into fire after destroying webs.)

Dark Daxter: Nothin' can stop me! (laughs)

On-screen: Fire cannot harm Dark Daxter when he is in Frenzy Mode

(Upon running into a laser.)
Dark Daxter: Ow! Sweet jeebers it burns!

The Interceptor

Daxter: (pants) Alright, okay... Orange, yes; soft, well condition fur, check; body odor, no worse than usual; small, cute, cuddly face... Ah, I'm back! I'm me again! Thank the Precursors! Or curse them, their stupid stuff keeps doing this to me!

Jak: Daxter! You okay, buddy?

Daxter: Glad you asked. This whole being tall, dark, and gruesome is a lot harder than I thought. Look at my claws! I need a manicure! And the hangnails, not to mention the headache! I think I went through the wall noggin-first! Hey, are you listening to me?

Jak: Huh? Oh, yeah, sure, sure Dax... Uh, it was something about the nails in your eggnog.

Daxter: (whistles) Now that's a sweet ride!

Jak: And our ticket out of here. That baby looks fast standing still. Come on Dax, climb aboard and put your tray tables in the upchuck position.

Daxter: At least you didn't say the exit's through the rear!

Jak: (chuckles) The night is still young.

Bring light eco to galleon (gameplay)

Keira: Hey Jak, swing by my workshop when we get back to the Phantom Blade; I found something on the research rig that I think I can use to tweak your Gunstaff!

On-screen: New Gun Mod available in the Workshop

(After picking up the Lobber.)
On-screen: You received the Lobber mod

(On PS2.)
On-screen: Use the directional buttons to select your new weapon.

(On PSP.)
On-screen: Press the up button to cycle through gun modes.


Phoenix: You did it! You are first mate material, my dear.

Keira: Ah, now what? It's pointing to an area near Far Drop, and another target the other way? The seeker is missing three parts. Perhaps it's trying to repair itself.

Daxter: Yeah, and kangarabbits are gonna fly out of my fuzzy butt! The thing is broken!

Keira: No, I think it's pointing to its missing pieces!

Jak: Which direction do we go first?

Phoenix: Let's head to the point near Far Drop. Prepare the–...

Jak: Why not the other direction?

Phoenix: Are you questioning my authority?!

Jak: No, I'm questioning your judgment, the second location is closer.

Phoenix: I will defer to Keira... Whatever your heart desires, my sweet.

Keira: Jak, what do you want to do?

After Choices (gameplay)

(Upon approaching the Precursor idol prior to the barracks gate.)
Daxter: Another Precursor idol? Man, these things are everywhere.

(After receiving the Eco Shield power.)
On-screen: Jak gained the Eco Power Eco Shield

Breaking and Entering

Jak: (grunts) Surprise, surprise. The place is armored and locked up tight.

Keira: I bet I can get it open.

Keira: Ugh!

Jak: You okay?

Keira: I'm all right. Nasty electronic countermeasures. Whoever runs this place, they mean business.

Jak: How did you–

Daxter: Hey! Wait up!

Search the barracks for seeker piece (gameplay)

Keira (communicator): Jak! It looks like we've set off some sort of alarm. The door locked behind us! I noticed a maintenance tunnel. If you could take down the force field in front of it, you may be able to sneak in the back. We'll meet up with you as soon as we can!

(Upon approaching the pool of dark eco ahead of the laser gate.)

Daxter: Try using that shield power to get across that pool of dark eco.

On-screen: Your shield power lets you roll on top of liquids.

(Upon encountering the first couple armored armadillos.)
Daxter: Sit! Heel, heel!

(Upon approaching the second pool of dark eco with geysers.)
Daxter: I've never seen that much dark eco. Careful, Jak!

(Upon approaching the following pool with a single geyser and a teleport idol.)

(On PS2.)
On-screen: Eco Teleport: Hold L2 and then press R1 to switch places with targeted idol.

(On PSP.)
On-screen: Eco Teleport: Press the down button to switch places with targeted idol.

(Upon encountering a pool of dark eco in a secret room with Precursor orbs.)
Daxter: Aw, only someone with a shield could get through that death trap. Oh wait, you have one.

(Upon approaching a large cracked door.)
Daxter: Something about that wall look a little off to you? Maybe with the right kind of firepower...

(After failing to use Eco Shield over dark eco and dying.)

Daxter: Uh, hey buddy you know what's better than melting? Not melting. Use your shield when you're walking over the rough stuff, eh?

On-screen: Use shield to cross liquids.

(Upon entering the bunk room.)
Daxter: I uh, think we made a wrong turn somewhere.

(Upon entering the armadillo den.)
Daxter: The alarm was tripped! Wasn't me.

(Upon approaching a shallow pool of dark eco with a cracked tank.)
Daxter: Maybe there's a way to get across that spill without being all, "everybody in the pool".

(After failing to crack the tank open.)

Daxter: Look at the cracks in those pipes! I bet you could blow 'em wide open with your amplifier.

On-screen: Use Amplifier on cracked tanks

(While still failing to crack the tank open.)

Daxter: How about those vats over there? They look strong but, not that strong.

On-screen: Use Amplifier on cracked vats

(After entering the room with the ethereal sub-commander.)

Daxter: Careful, Jak! It's not wearing any pants.

Daxter: Sheesh... Why can't we ever break into something fun, like a candy factory or a beauty contest?

Daxter: Super strong, ill-tempered, long finger nails... Ring any bells for you, Jak?

(After the ethereal sub-commander revives the enemies.)
Daxter: Did big and gruesome over there just bring his toties back to life? We just got done punching 'em!

Daxter: Ooh, I'm so scary because I float two feet off the ground, shoot pure evil out of my hands!

Secrets Revealed

Keira: We got it, but, there's a problem.

Castaway: It's all my fault, Jak... The memories of this place are flooding back.

Keira: It turns out our friend here was, or is, a dark eco sage.

Castaway: I've been so wrong, Jak, about so many things. I-I created this project, built the dark eco warriors...

Jak: For who?!

Castaway: Then, I-I tried to build robots to take this facility back by force, to undo what I'd done! But I failed...

Jak: Who did you do this for?!

Phoenix: He built them for me, for the Aeropans.

Jak: You son of a–...

Keira: Jak, wait! Hear him out!

Phoenix: The blame is mine. I was once the commander of the Aeropan Air Forces. I was put in charge of a secret weapons program to make a new class of warrior. You see, we were fighting a terrible war, and we were losing.

Jak: And so you put people in the chair!

Phoenix: No! I refused. When I realized what they were doing, I tried to stop the program, but Skyheed wouldn't hear of it. So, I took the only option before me: I kidnapped the program's chief scientist. Sorry old boy, but in the scuffle you took a big blow to the noggin. I marooned you on that island to hide your work from the Aeropans.

Jak: Too little too late!

Phoenix: Yes, it all may be too late! Skyheed has spread the dark power to all his citizens. Every Aeropan is now infected with dark eco! Those monsters declared me an outlaw, so I became just that and fought back! I swore to destroy them—destroy what you are!

Keira: Wait, Phoenix, please! Jak isn't a monster!

Phoenix: I've seen what he is!

Keira: No, Phoenix! If you care for me at all, you'll spare him! See, I need Jak, more than anything in the world.

Castaway: You can't run from what you did, Phoenix, and neither can I. You can't kill your way to forgiveness. But together, we can repair the damage we've done.

Phoenix: How?

Castaway: We've got the secret weapon. A warrior that proves dark eco can be controlled, o-or at least managed.

Daxter: Hey! What about me?

Castaway: No, you're a certified crazy monster. But, we may be able to help you fix that someday as well, son.

Phoenix: Jak, will you join me to stop the Aeropans?

Jak: Let's go put the Aeropans out of business.

Bring coordinate sphere back to the galleon (gameplay)

(After picking up the coordinate sphere.)

On-screen: You retrieved a Coordinate Sphere

Klout (communicator): Hello? Cap'n! Something's moving down there on the ground. I thought–... Turn! Turn! All hands brace for im–...

Phoenix (communicator): Klout? Klout! Jak, I need to get back to my ship, now!

(After launching.)

Phoenix (communicator): Klout! What's going on out there?

Klout (communicator): This is Klout. Something big got us. Our engines are down, we're dead in the sky here! We're being targeted by some sort of automatic defense system! That's probably what hit us.

Klout (communicator): Something's coming... It's a trap!

(After the defense turrets activate.)

Klout (communicator): Those turrets are trained on us!

Phoenix (communicator): The Phantom Blade can't afford to take much more punishment in the state she's in! You've got to take those turrets out as quickly as you can!

On-screen: Destroy those turrets before they sink the Phantom Blade

(After turrets shoot the Phantom Blade four times.)
Klout (communicator): (groans) [That's bad!] Don't know how many more of those we can take!

(While failing to defend the Phantom Blade.)
Klout (communicator): Hey! Are you even trying out there?!

(After destroying the first round of laser turrets.)

Phoenix (communicator): What's going on?

Keira (communicator): I'm reading an enormous energy signature... Looks like a giant guided missile!

Jak: Dax, get down there and see if you can stop that missile!

Daxter: Aye aye, captain!

Keira (communicator): It's already launching!

(After dropping Daxter into the missile silo.)

Daxter: (wails) [Jak you owe me for this!]

Klout (communicator): Missile's in the air. [All hands brace for impact!]

(While Daxter is on the missile.)
Keira (communicator): Daxter, try and find the guidance system... Maybe you could turn the missile against the launchers.

(After gaining control of the missile.)

Keira (communicator): Fly the missile into the exposed center!

On-screen: Pilot the missile into the center of the tower

Keira (communicator): That battery is launching defensive air mines!

(After Daxter dismounts the missile.)

Daxter: Woohoo hoo-hoo, ride the Orange Lightning, baby!

Daxter: Yeehaw! Now all I need me is a missile hat and spurs!

(Upon failing the missile guidance portion.)

Klout (communicator): Intensify forward fire power!

Keira (communicator): It's too late!

Sucker's Bet

Barter: (groans) So glad you back, Jak! Strange things afoot. Ah, you like? (chuckles) Mmm, that a Precursor rune sphere. She good fighter, but me think you can "persuade" her to give it up. (chuckles)

Jak: I think you have something I need.

Saucy Pirate: Oh, not much for small talk, are you?

Jak: Okay listen, I don't have much time, and I'm not in the mood. How much for the sphere?

Saucy Pirate: Hah! Cash don't interest me. Beat me and it's yours.

Jak: And if I lose?

Saucy Pirate: When you lose, I get the orange runt as a fur coat.

Daxter: That's right he's gonna kick you–... hey! Wait a minute!

Jak: Deal.

Daxter: No! No deal!

Saucy Pirate: Done!

Defeat the Saucy Pirate (gameplay)

(After the previous cutscene ends.)

Daxter: When this is done, you and I are going to have a serious talk about your negotiating technique.

Daxter: Holy frijole she's fast! Try using your reflex power to even the odds!

On-screen: Use Eco Reflexes to deal with speedy foes

Daxter: Wow! Those shots are fast. Use that eco reflex power to help you dodge.

(While she swings at you with her knife.)
Saucy Pirate: Have at you!

(Upon launching up to the stage.)

Saucy Pirate
  • Get him, boys.
  • Some more help here, boys.

Daxter: Cronies? That is so not fair!

Daxter: We need to roll with some more cronies.

(While launching bombs.)

Saucy Pirate: Bombs away!

  • She needs to lay off the sugar.
  • Where is she hiding all those bombs?!

(While she's jumping from table to table.)
Saucy Pirate: Heads up, fly boy!

(Upon defeating her.)
Daxter: Call me.

(After picking up the coordinate sphere.)
On-screen: You retrieved a Coordinate Sphere

Report back to the Phantom Blade (gameplay)

On-screen: Report back to the Phantom Blade

Keira (communicator): Hey Jak, get this: That coordinate sphere you picked up was masking a signal from a third sphere! It's weak, but, I think I can follow it. Meet me back at the Phantom Blade.

(Upon docking with the Phantom Blade.)

Keira (communicator): I've got it! The signal points to an old ship graveyard beyond the Brink. Go to the helm and lay it acourse.

On-screen: Travel to new area beyond the Brink

Find the third coordinate sphere (gameplay)

(Upon exiting the Phantom Blade and entering Sector Zero airspace.)
Keira (communicator): The signal's coming from the bottom of that vortex. Good luck, Jak!

(Upon approaching the vortex.)
On-screen: Press Circle to enter the vortex

(After entering the vortex.)
Daxter: Just when you thought you've been everywhere and seen everything... ghost pirates.

(Upon colliding with a ghost pirate.)

  • Watch it!
  • Eww, slime.
  • This is dryclean only!
  • Well, the interior's ruined.

(Upon approaching the end of the level.)

Daxter: There's the sphere! Grab it!

Jak: Jak here. I got the final sphere.

(After exiting the vortex.)

Keira (communicator): You're becoming quite the treasure hunter! Come on home and–... wait a minute! Jak, something big just popped up on radar. It's... it's the Behemoth! Everyone buckle in!

Skyheed (communicator): Still looking for the Eco Core? Not before me, you dogs!

Jak: Woah! Skyheed's beam is charging those floating wrecks with dark eco. It's turning them into mobile bombs!

Keira (communicator): Jak! Shoot those bombs or we're finished!

On-screen: Protect galleon - destroy derelict bombs

(After destroying all the derelict bombs, or after they collide with the galleon.)

On-screen: Attack power nodes on the battleship.

Jak: If I don't take out those power nodes, those flak cannons are gonna cut me out of the sky.

(After destroying the first wave of power nodes.)

Skyheed (communicator): Did you think you were done, mainlander? Those guns were just the tip of the iceberg!

Keira (communicator): I think those charged wrecks are actually tracking your ship's energy signature! Fly around them, or shoot them out of the sky!

(While failing to clear out the Behemoth's hangar.)

Jak: If I'm gonna stop those fighters I'm gonna have to shoot those hangars in center of the battleship.

On-screen: Shoot hangar to stop fighters launching

(After clearing out the Behemoth's hangar.)
On-screen: Attack power nodes on the battleship.

(After taking out the remaining power nodes.)

Skyheed (communicator): I wanted to save these for the rats in Far Drop, but you forced my hand! Now, taste the true might of the Aeropan Navy!

Skyheed (communicator): Deploy weapons package Skyheed Bravo Niner... Now!

Jak: Each of those drones has an eco laser on it! There's no way I'm going to be able to concentrate on the battleship unless I take those things down, fast and hard!

(When the laser drones begin shooting at the galleon.)

Keira (communicator): Jak, those lasers are gonna cut through the hull at any minute now! Blow those satellites out of the sky!

On-screen: Protect galleon - destroy laser satellites

Jak: Those... (grunts) Those drones will burn the Phantom Blade to ashes unless I take them out here and now!

(After taking out the last of the power nodes.)
Keira (communicator): Phew! That was close. Now get back here with that coordinate sphere.

Repel the Aeropan boarders (gameplay)

Keira (communicator): Jak, I don't think we're out of this yet. You better get up here on the deck!

On-screen: Head to upper decks via elevator.

(When going near a plane in the hangar.)
On-screen: Clearance denied. Finish the mission!

(While not going to the upper deck.)

  • Come on Jak, let's get up to the deck!
  • Jak, we better hurry and get up to the deck!

On-screen: Head to upper decks via elevator.

(Upon arriving to the upper decks.)

Phoenix (communicator): They've grappled on to us! Now it's going to be up close and personal.

Phoenix (communicator): Jak, get to one of the deck guns and help us defend the ship!

On-screen: Use the deck guns to defend the ship

(When the boarders begin boarding.)

Phoenix (communicator): Aeropan boarders! Mow them down!

On-screen: Clear the boarders off the deck

(After shooting a rapid-fire turret.)
Daxter: Woo-wee look at them bullets fly! Light 'em up, Jak!

(While the gunships attack the galleon.)

Keira (communicator): Shoot down those heavy rockets!

Phoenix (communicator)
  • There are still gunships attacking.
  • There are gunships still attacking us.

(While the Behemoth's hull turrets attack the galleon.)

Phoenix (communicator): Ugh, those turrets are tearing us up! You've got to do something about them, Jak!

On-screen: Destroy the turrets on the Behemoth

(After the lob turrets are ready.)
Phoenix (communicator): Our big cannons have finally warmed up. Get on them, and use them to break through those shielded Behemoth guns!

(Upon prematurely exiting a turret.)
Phoenix (communicator): There's some more guns to destroy on the Behemoth!

(While trying to attack the Behemoth or gunships with Gunstaff guns.)

Phoenix (communicator): You'll need to use the deck guns to try and drive off the Behemoth.

On-screen: Use the deck guns to defend the ship

(During the third hull cannon stage.)
Skyheed (communicator): Concentrate more firepower!

(After taking out the remaining hull cannons on the Behemoth.)

Aeropan lieutenant: Hull integrity's at 38% on the starboard side. We've got to pull away.

Skyheed (communicator): (growls) The day is yours, Jak. But this isn't over!

(When near one of the side entrances.)
On-screen: Press Circle to move to the other side of the Galleon!

(When near a rapid-fire turret.)
On-screen: Press Circle to Enter Rapid-Fire Turret

(Upon pressing any button button Circle after entering a rapid-fire turret.)
On-screen: Press Circle to Exit Rapid-Fire Turret

(Upon approaching the base of a lob turret.)
On-screen: Press Circle to Enter Lob Turret

(Upon pressing any button button Circle after entering a lob turret.)
On-screen: Press Circle to Exit Lob Turret

Secrets of the Rig

Phoenix: It's pointing back to the research rig.

Keira: We must have missed something.

Phoenix: Come to think of it, the Aeropan research rig was built over strange formations, but we could never penetrate what was below the surface.

Keira: Precursors! It must have been one of their facilities from long ago. We have to go back and dig deeper!

Phoenix: But we must be cautious. If the Aeropans detect our return, they could ambush us and we'd be trapped. We'll have to leave the Phantom Blade behind, and go in quietly.

Klout: I'll make sure the Phantom Blade crew is ready to do their duty, Captain. We'll follow you in after you get to the core.

Search research rig for Precursor facility (gameplay)

(Soon after entering the research rig's airspace.)

Keira: Jak, you're gonna have to knock out those shield generators before we can land on the rig again.

On-screen: Shoot generators to deactivate shield

Daxter: Man, this is going to take forever. Try taking out some of those repair barges so we can speed this up.

On-screen: Destroy repair tenders first

On-screen: Destroy Generators

(Reminders, spoken randomly throughout the mission but will be skipped if one progresses through efficiently.)

  • Shoot down those repair ships!
  • Taking out those turrets would make this a lot easier!
  • Jak, concentrate your fire on those generators!
  • Those ships look like they're equipped to repair the shield generators. Take 'em out!

On-screen: Tender ships will repair any damage done to the Generator

(After destroying a generator.)
On-screen: Shoot down Fighters

(After destroying the first wave of fighters.)
Keira: Good work, Jak. Two more to go!

(After destroying the second wave of fighters.)
Keira: Good work, Jak. Only one more to go!

(After taking out the last generator.)

Keira: The shield is down! Head over to the rig's hangar bay.

On-screen: Land at the hangar


Jak: What's that symbol?

Keira: The Eco Core, at the center of our planet.

Jak: This must be where the Precursors controlled it.

Phoenix: (scoffs) But it looks long dead.

Keira: Maybe, maybe not. With the right persuasion... Jak, I need a little eco energy for this control board.

Keira: That woke something up!

Keira: The Eco Core!

Keira: The Core is malfunctioning. I read a massive unstable energy buildup. It appears there's a prism at the center, which must combine and break the ecos into their colors. It seems to be out of alignment, but I think I can fix it.

Keira: For what it's worth, I think I got it. But we'll need to bring it back online slowly or else I don't know wha–...

Klout: Reporting as ordered, Captain. And I've brought a few lost souls with me.

Phoenix: Klout! Good show, man. You captured Skyheed!

Klout: (laughs) Just some good old-fashioned pirate work; a little muscle, and something that talks louder than words.

Skyheed: Yes, something much more persuasive... There are many more where that came from, Klout.

Klout: Like I said, I'm old-fashioned, and when a Captain's gotta go, he's gotta go.

Daxter: Uh, is it too late to be on their side?

Phoenix: You traitor!

Skyheed: No you, sir, are the real traitor! You turned your back on our people, and on your duty!

Phoenix: What you have made them, what you have become! You are no longer my people!

Skyheed: For your lack of loyalty the penalty is death. Kill them, but leave the monster to me. I want Jak... studied.

Jak: You're the monster, Skyheed!

Skyheed: In every war there are worthwhile casualties. Join us, Jak. Accept your fate as I have. This is the future.

Jak: Never!

Skyheed: Pity, Jak. You could have finally realized your true potential. Kill them all.

Keira: Get down!

Klout: (yells)

Keira: This energy field won't last long. Let's get out of here!

Skyheed: Run, cowards! But I will find you, wherever you go!

From Bad to Worse

Jak: This isn't over.

Phoenix: It well might be. I just received word that the Aeropans have laid siege to Far Drop.

Jak: What? How did they find it? Who sent the message?

Phoenix: I don't know. It could be a trap, but with the location of Far Drop known, no one is safe from the Aeropans now.

Keira: And Skyheed has access to the Eco Core. Who knows what he plans to do with it.

Jak: It seems Skyheed thinks we're on the defensive.

Daxter: Yeah, hello, brother? We are.

Jak: Then now's the perfect time to attack.

Phoenix: That's the spirit! We'll muster every last freedom fighter and pirate we can find! We've got to defend Far Drop at all costs!

Jak: We'll take the fight to Skyheed, and hit him hard before he realizes what's happened!

Phantom Blade hangar (gameplay)

(A pirate in the hangar of the Phantom Blade will now offer Jak the Gunship.)

Pirate: Psst. Over here.

On-screen: Triangle Talk to Pirate.

Fight off the Aeropan shock troops (gameplay)

(Upon encountering a commando on a hover pad.)

  • Huh, neat toy.
  • Well, there goes the neighborhood!
  • Knock that creep off the hover pad!

(After defeating the commando and approaching the hover pad.)
Daxter: Woooh, convenient.

(After taking out the first commando and approaching the city square.)
Barter (communicator): Ugh, Jak! Soldiers at Barter's door! You go pound them, yes?

(Upon first encountering a gladiator.)
Daxter: Word to the wise, don't shake hands with that guy.

(Upon first entering through an ethereal sub-commander's shield.)

Daxter: Woah! You're gonna need to think of a better way to slip past that lightning ball.

On-screen: Trying using your Eco powers to bypass the Lightning Orb.

(After taking out the first ethereal sub-commander.)

Barter (communicator): Good, good, but I not safe yet. Because you strong, I use you in Barter's master plan! (chuckles)

Barter (communicator): Step one: go to generator and turn power back on.

On-screen: Step #1: Go to Generator and turn the wheel to restart the power grid

Daxter: Not another ride in the aeropult!

(Upon approaching the wheel in the power station.)
On-screen: Triangle Restart the Power Grid

(After restarting the power grid.)

Daxter: That was easy enough. How do we get back?

Jak: I think I have a plan! Come here, Dax...

(Upon approaching the wheel across the room.)
On-screen: Triangle Go for help, boy!

(Upon sending Daxter for help.)
Jak: Go for help, Dax. I can't keep this up for long...

(After knocking the commando off the hover pad.)
Daxter: Behind ya, turkey!

(After reuniting with Jak.)
Daxter: (chuckles) Who loves ya, baby?

(After returning to the city square.)

Barter (communicator): Very good, yes! Now onto next step. Step two: go to crane and bring back aeropult battery.

On-screen: Step #2: Bring back an Aeropult battery from the Crane

(Upon approaching the crane's turn wheel.)
On-screen: Triangle Release the Crane Claw

(Upon picking up the battery.)

Barter (communicator): Yes, you good with step two. Now, come back to Barter's bar with battery.

On-screen: You retrieved the Aeropult charge

On-screen: Return to the Barter's Tavern

(Upon returning to the tavern's front court.)

Barter (communicator): Hmph, path to orphanage blocked, but Barter solved that now. Go boom! (laughs)

On-screen: Launch volatile payload from the Aeropult.

(After launching the battery.)

Barter (communicator): Now you ride!

Daxter: I don't know, I like my face in its natural, unmashed state.

(After landing.)

Barter (communicator): Grubby children spies tell Barter invaders stash great bomb. Step three: steal bomb for Barter.

On-screen: Step #3: Retrieve bomb from Enemy Camp

(After retrieving the bomb.)

On-screen: You retrieved the bomb

Barter (communicator): Now, final and most important step, step four: ride aeropult to Aeropan dropship and plant bomb.

On-screen: Step #4: Take the Aeropult to the Aeropan drop ship and plant the bomb

(Upon arriving at the next "Go for help, boy!" segment.)
Daxter: Hold on, I got this.

(After knocking off the commando.)
Daxter: Special delivery!

(After reuniting with Jak.)
Daxter: One escape, coming up!

(Upon approaching the dropship's terminal.)
On-screen: Press Triangle button to plant bomb.

(Upon planting the bomb.)

Daxter: Okay, the bomb's in place, but... Woops! How are we getting off this thing?

Jak: Jump!

Barter (communicator): (laughs) Me plan perfect success, and you alive too, Jak. That also good!

On-screen: Return to the hangar

Stop the Behemoth (gameplay)

Keira (communicator): Jak! Phoenix's scouts say the Behemoth is on its way to Far Drop! We need you in the air to help mobilize the defense.

(Upon returning to Pirate's Cove airspace.)

Phoenix (communicator): Skyheed, how dare you?!

Skyheed (communicator): We had the chance to wield the ultimate power of this half-built world! But you were too afraid!

Skyheed (communicator): But now, behold the power of dark eco unleashed on your band of rebels.

Skyheed (communicator): Traitors all!

Phoenix (communicator): Have a heart, man! There are women and children living in Far Drop!

(When the Behemoth begins charging its crystal.)

Keira (communicator): That large crystal must be the power source for the ship's new weapon. If we damage it enough, that can disrupt their power beam and interrupt the firing process.

On-screen: Destroy Generator Crystal

On-screen: Damage the Crystal to stop Behemoth

(After each "Destroy generator crystal" segment.)

On-screen: Shoot down Fighters

Aeropan lieutenant (communicator): The power system's overloaded! The weapon's lost its charge!

Aeropan lieutenant (communicator): Fire control's been hit. The weapon's lost its charge!

Aeropan lieutenant (communicator): It's no use. The power grid's completely fried. We can't fire anymore!

Slim Hope

Phoenix: The siege went badly. I've lost many friends at Far Drop. Time for payback!

Keira: Skyheed will see us coming on his long-range scanners if we attack. Wait, someone's sending another message... "Use Aeropan barracks warp gate."

Castaway: Barracks warp gate? I think I built that warp transport long ago. Hmmm... But uh, Skyheed locked it with an activation code. Eh, I think.

Phoenix: (chuckles) Looks like our secret admirer just sent us the code.

Castaway: Ah! With that code, you can drop right on Skyheed's back door before his scanners can say "incoming"!

Jak: Sounds like a trap.

Phoenix: Well, it's all we've got. To all freedom fighters, converge on the Aeropan barracks!

Find the barracks warp gate (gameplay)

Keira (communicator): You heard what the old-timer said. The portal is somewhere in that Aeropan training camp.

The Raid

Jak: Everyone! To the warp gate, now!

Daxter: Don't eat me, don't eat me! Don't eat me!

Aeropan commando: (laughs)

Dark Daxter: I'll eat you! (roars)

Jak: Hey Dax, you're putting on some pounds!

Dark Daxter: (laughs) Welcome to the other end of the food chain. Aw, I broke this one... Still hungry! Time to find some more meat snacks. (chuckles)

Jak: Dax, chew before you swallow!

Smash the barracks (gameplay)

(Upon encountering explosive devices behind some barriers.)

Dark Daxter: Ah, I'll use their own explosives to burn a hole through this compound. All I need is the right spark.

On-screen: Carry fire in Frenzy Mode to set off fuel tanks

(Upon walking over a scanner.)

Dark Daxter: Scanners only pick up Aeropan mutants, eh? (chuckles) I wonder if the soldiers have to be in one piece to work. (laughs)

On-screen: Keep soldiers on top of scanners to open the door

(Upon throwing a commando on top of a scanner.)
Dark Daxter: Smile for the camera! (chuckles)

(Upon encountering a force field.)

Dark Daxter: You think that shield will protect you, Aeropan? Hah. It's only slowing me down.

Dark Daxter: Heh, these fields might have stopped an ottsel, but not a magnificent beast like me! (laughs)

Demolition Duo

Jak: I've got to go back for him, I've just got to.

Keira: He was like, huge! Daxter, or whatever he is, can take care of himself.

Daxter: Hurry! Turn it off, turn it off!

Keira: Hah! That'll keep the rest of them out! What the heck happened to you?

Daxter: Oh nothing! I just turned into a huge slobbering dark eco monster who has even worse B.O. than I do! How's your day been?

Keira: Great! Now I've got two monsters to worry about!

Jak: Comes with the territory. So what's the plan?

Keira: I'm going to find a way to take out the long-range sensor array. That should let Phoenix get his ship through. You boys need to find and destroy Skyheed's weapons control system so you can get your gun up and working. Think you can do that?

Jak: Hey, we're the Demolition Duo, remember?

Disable weapons control system (gameplay)

(After the previous cutscene ends.)
Keira (communicator): Jak, the Aeropan weapons lock is still in effect, so you can't use your Gunstaff. You got to make your way to the sanctum and disable it, or the pirates won't stand a chance!

(Upon finding the weapons lock.)

Daxter: There's the weapons lock, Jak! Destroy the fancy machine and let's go!

On-screen: Destroy weapons lock machine

Head to the palace (gameplay)

(After destroying the weapons lock machine.)

Keira (communicator): Jak, you should be able to use your guns now.

On-screen: Weapons lock disabled

(Upon nearing the room with the hyper mutant boss.)
Phoenix (communicator): Jak, are you near the palace? Be careful, there's some kind of dark eco–...

(Upon approaching the area preceding the palace elevator.)
Skyheed (communicator): Truly, this was my destiny... To conquer and rule with this power. If you still seek to thwart my ambitions, Jak, so be it. I will crush you like the insect you are!

Skyheed the Monster

Jak: It's over, Skyheed!

Skyheed: (laughs)

Keira: He's drawing on massive amounts of dark eco!

Skyheed: You are too late! The Eco Core is now mine to use as I will! With it, my armies will grow stronger! Aeropa will not only survive, it will rule the world!

Ruskin: Enough! This has gone too far!

Skyheed: You fool! We are only just beginning to see what eco can do to us!

Jak: Ruskin... You were the one sending us messages!

Ruskin: Don't make me kill you, my Duke! There is still a chance to undo this madness! Yes, I helped them... I cannot live with what you have done to us all.

Skyheed: Then, you will die with them!

Ruskin: (wails)

Skyheed: Now it is your turn!

Keira: Do something, Jak!

Jak: Time to tame the beast.

Defeat Duke Skyheed (gameplay)

Skyheed: Behold! The perfection of Aeropan technology! How can you even hope to stand against this?

Daxter: Wooh, so touchy. Has someone been going through some changes?

Jak: That power will be your undoing.

(As Skyheed begins expelling electric charges.)
Daxter: Hey Jak, why didn't you ever make electric death rings like jerkface over there? Ooh right, cause that would make you a jerk!

(Upon attempting to shoot Skyheed with a gun.)

  • Ah, nothing's hurting him. Maybe you should fight fire with fire.
  • Uh, Jak, bullets no work-y. You better look for something else to hit him with, like a truck.

Skyheed: (laughs) So futile! I don't even feel your attacks, worm.

(When Skyheed picks up a plane.)
Daxter: What's he doing with that plane? Holy crap he picked up that plane!

(When Skyheed throws the plane.)
Daxter: Wait, he threw a plane. At us. At me!

(When Jak kicks an explosive back at Skyheed.)
Daxter: Hah! How about a taste of your own medicine! Mmm, tastes like explosions.

(During the fountain segments.)

Skyheed: You will pay for that a thousand times over, mainlander!

Skyheed: You are nothing without the dark!

Daxter: Oh boy...

Skyheed: I have the power.

(Randomly throughout the fight.)
Skyheed: You are nothing without the dark!

(Upon defeating Skyheed.)
Jak: The bigger they are, the harder they fall.

Jak Gives Chase

Skyheed: This isn't over! With enough power, even you cannot challenge me, Jak!

Jak: Oh great. Smart move, Jak.

Keira: Hey, hero. Need a ride? Phoenix is getting good at catching jumpers.

Jak: Phoenix, Skyheed's on the move. He's headed back to the Eco Core!

Phoenix: You'll need a good ship to match him. Take your pick from the fliers in the hangar.

Jak: Thanks! Try to keep up, you old pirate! And Phoenix, keep Keira safe.

Phoenix: (chuckles) We'll stay close, hot shot. The Phantom Blade has it in her. Just watch your six.

Pursue Skyheed (gameplay)

(After exiting the Phantom Blade.)
Keira (communicator): Jak, take out Skyheed before he can get away.

(Upon entering the teleporter.)

Skyheed (communicator): Goodbye, Jak!

Computer voice: Unauthorized access detected.

(When Skyheed activates a second teleporter.)

Keira (communicator): Skyheed just activated another one of the teleporters. Follow him!

On-screen: Kill Skyheed

(After the arena segment.)
Skyheed (communicator): I don't know why you carry on with this futile gesture.

Computer voice: Destroy unauthorized users.

Keira (communicator): Stay on him, Jak!

Skyheed: How about this!

Computer voice: Activating security measures.

Skyheed: Sorry Jak, but that's never going to work.

(After the chase goes in a circle.)

Keira (communicator): Hold on a second, Jak. Something's not right... Skyheed is just leading us around.

Keira (communicator): Look at the size of that teleporter... Jak, follow him before he powers down.

(After exiting.)

Keira (communicator): Come dock with the Phantom Blade. Whatever he has planned, we need to be ready.

On-screen: Dock at Phantom Blade

On-screen: Dock with the Phantom Blade

Take down the Behemoth (gameplay)

(Upon attempting to select the Hellcat.)

Keira (communicator): Jak, I'm experimenting with the eco fuel supply. Leave the Hellcat here for now.

On-screen: Access Denied

(After exiting the Phantom Blade.)

Phoenix (communicator): (laughs) Well here we are. It all comes down to this, Jak my boy!

Keira (communicator): Good luck, Jak. I'll try to help out as soon as I'm done with the Hellcat.

(After the third wave of fighters are destroyed.)
Keira (communicator): That crystal's soaking up tremendous power... He's starting some kind of cascade reaction. The more energy he absorbs, the more powerful the reaction gets. If he keeps this up, the reaction could consume the entire world!

(Repeated every time the Phantom Blade attacks the Behemoth.)
Phoenix (communicator): Once more into the breach, dear friends, once more!

Captain Phoenix's Last Ride

Daxter: (yells) Oof!

Keira: Looks like you boys need a lift.

Skyheed: Now, you die!

Jak: Phoenix! What are you doing?!

Phoenix: Sorry old boy, but we can't have Skyheed double-dipping from the Eco Core all day. Besides, if I don't show you up, who will?

Keira: Phoenix, no!

Phoenix: There's no other way, my dear. I started this, and I damn well can finish it! Jak, it was great flying with you. Keep Keira safe, will you?

Phoenix: Now, Skyheed, or whatever you've become, see if you can take a "Blade" to the heart! (laughs)

Skyheed: No!

Keira: Phoenix!

Daxter: Well pluck my whiskers, he did it! The Behemoth is damaged!

Jak: Which means it can be destroyed. Here I come, Skyheed. This is for Phoenix!

Take down the Behemoth (gameplay)

Keira: [I've rigged the intakes to distill the dark] eco in the air. Try the new weapons![a]

Skyheed: No! Dark eco is eternal! Dark eco is supreme!


Daxter: Look at that!

Keira: Hear that? The core is in balance again.

Keira: Everything's in the green. The prism is aligned, and the core is channeling energy. Soon, eco vents around the world will start flowing again. If only Phoenix could have seen this...

Jak: He was a good man.

Castaway: He certainly was.

Jak: Phoenix sacrificed himself for us all.

Keira: My readings show a huge reduction in storm and quake activity in all directions. And the instability is dropping fast.

Keira: Woah!

Jak: Keira! You just–...

Keira: ...channeled eco energy!

Castaway: You may be turning into an eco sage, my girl!

Daxter: Big deal. When I get really riled up, I can turn into a massive, fifteen-foot monster!

Jak: (laughs) More like eight feet, but uh, I like you short and orange, pal.

Daxter: And so do the ladies.

Keira: Castaway, what is your name?

Castaway: People called me... Tym.

Keira: Well, Tym and I have been decoding these symbols at the core. That circle inside our planet was attached to other energy lines, and a big one points out over the Brink.

Jak: Which means...

Keira: We've got some exploring to do! Who knows what we'll find out there...

Daxter: I say we go partake in the love and gratitude right here.

Jak: Out over the Brink, huh?

Keira: Could be a grand adventure, if I can find a partner willing to keep up...

Jak: Well, since we're already way out here, and I wasn't planning on taking a vacation...

Daxter: Say, you guys wouldn't be planning something without me, right? Next time, I want a vote!

Jak: Oh sure, Dax. All in favor of going on a new adventure, raise your hand.

Keira: Two to one. Done. You lose.

Daxter: Woah! Woah! You're lucky I didn't go monster on you just then, that really got me upset. Okay fine, we'll go on another adventure, but this time I'm bringing a barf bag, and some magazines. And maybe that sexy pirate chick, rowr! Oh, and a seat cushion, it hurts my tail to sit that long. And a few more snacks, hence the barf bag. And a high-tensile grooming comb, for my luscious dark monster fur. And don't let me forget my Poogie Precursor Bear—can't sleep with out it. And a boat-load of gas pills, oh, you guys won't be able to sleep if I don't have those! (laughs, sighs) Ah! Yes, I almost forgot, I'm bringing that cool Precursor game system Tym built for me. And the racing game, Jak X. And my whisker trimmer. Hey you got any grubby gum? It helps pop the ears when we're landing.

Plane weapons

(After exiting the galleon with a newly equipped weapon.)

(For the swarmer missile.)

(For the laser.)
Daxter: The solar lance beam laser deals damage constantly, striking enemies the moment you fire it.

(For the Vulcan Cannon.)
Daxter: Hephaestus' Cannon is a cannon with a high rate of fire and a large spread. The more bullets that hit, the better!

(For the chain lightning gun.)
Daxter: That hyper induction gun fires a bolt of electricity at your target and jumps to nearby enemies!

(For the slow homing missile.)
Daxter: These Silver Hawk missiles are classified as slow-home. They automatically lock on but don't track as well as other missiles.

(For the flak cannon.)
Daxter: Sweet! The Thunderhead flak cannon shoots slowly, but deals a lot of damage in one shot!

(For the Armageddon.)
Daxter: Judgment missiles have multiple warheads that split up and seek out your targets. I'm pretty sure, no matter what you do, Judgment missiles will do a lot of damage!

Hero mode

(After you enter Tym's court during "Land on Brink Island and search volcano for Eco Seeker", Tym will tell you about the Jaguar.)

Tym: I think to myself that you must be tired of flying around in that old plane. Once upon a time, I built a plane trying to get off this island. A real piece of work she was! But I scuttled her during the test flight. Word of advice: don't ever use jet fuel you refined yourself.

Tym: The ship broke into five pieces, and was scattered across the Brink. I bet that if you found the missing pieces, I-I could fix her! Even better than before!

On-screen: Find 5 pieces to rebuild Castaway's experimental plane

(Upon collecting the fifth and final piece.)
Tym (communicator): The last piece! By gone, you've done it! Come on home and I'll show you engineering that'll knock your socks off!
