Blaster Master Wiki

This area houses a facility where many destructive weapons that humans created a long time ago are kept. By constantly keeping this facility at an extremely low temperature, it seals these weapons in an icy tomb to order to prevent them from ever falling into the wrong hands. However, even an icy prison like this wan't enough to keep out the mutant invasion. SOPHIA III's receiver is picking up Fred's signal from this area, but...

Area 6, also known as the Glacier Area, is the sixth stage of Blaster Master, Blaster Master: Enemy Below, and Blaster Master Zero. Mutants have managed to thrive in an inhospitable climate of ice caves and frozen-over bunkers, and slippery surfaces defy Sophia 3rd's attempts to gain traction. Chasms extending beyond the Hover Pack's maximum range taunt explorers from above; in Zero, the solution is to make the sector colder still by engaging old cryogenic freezers in control rooms throughout the level and producing ice blocks to jump across and shoot through as footholds. Area 6 is connected to Area 5 in all appearances, requiring the Dive Gear; It also does not connect to any other Area.

Jason: Looks like we made it to the Glacier Area. How's Fred's signal, Eve?
Eve: All good. I can still pick it up.
Jason: Great... how about all those mutants? Any changes since last time?
Eve: It looks like some of them are still there, but most of them went elsewhere.
Jason: ... I just can't get a read on these guys. What could they be up to?
Eve: ... Jason, I know you want to find out, but we gotta focus on looking for Fred.
Jason: Ah, yeah... that's true. Sorry, you're absolutely right.
Eve: I'm sorry too. I spoke too strongly. U-um...! The ground looks like it's gonna be frozen going forward, so please tread extra carefully.

Fred: .........
Jason: Is that... Fred?!

Jason: ... Poor guy is pretty injured, but he's still alive... thank goodness. ... Hm? What's this...? Looks like... machine parts. (What are these doing here...?)
Eve: Jason, could I have a look at him? ............ Yup, he's fine. SOPHIA is equipped with everything we need to treat him.
Jason: Seriously?! That's awesome. I can't believe we finally found him...
Eve: .........

Jason: ?! What's going on?
Eve: Hang on a second. ... Looks like something happened at a facility in there.
Jason: I guess I'll have to go check it out. I'll leave Fred's treatment to you.

Jason: This is supposed to be the control facility from the Glacier Area, but it looks like there's nothing here...
Eve: Watch out, Jason! I'm detecting a mutant in that room!
Jason: ?! I think this entire room is a mutant! Looks like there's a lot of 'em, but they aren't gonna stop me!

Eve: Great job, Jason. Are you alright? You're not injured are you?
Jason: Nope, no injuries. All good here.
Eve: Phew, thank goodness. I have something I want to talk to you about when you get back.
Jason: Got it. I'm heading back now.
Eve: Thanks, I'll be waiting for you.

Jason: So, you had something you wanted to talk to me about...
Eve: Before I do that... Fred, go over and sit with Jason.
Fred: *ribbit ribbit*
Jason: (Fred was sitting in the palm of her hand, and he seemed to understand our language because he hopped on over to me and sat by my feet. All his injuries look like they have been healed thanks to Eve's medical treatment.)
Eve: Our drone here, also known as Fred, had but one purpose when it came to this planet: To blend in naturally with the creatures that lived on this planet, and search for the whereabouts of mutants.
Jason: Eve...? What are you saying?
Eve: Then, the mutants began to consume all the planet's natural resources and lifeforms, and the planet fell into a state of ruin. The mutants once invaded my home planet, too. Thanks to the help of some extraordinary people, we were able to hold onto our home, but the destruction was massive. That's when we developed something that could oppose the mutants that were scattered throughout space, and rescue people on other planets at the same time. That would be none other than SOPHIA III here. There was also a project that set out to create a support bot that could perform maintenance and adjustments on SOPHIA. As for that support bot... well, that's actually an android... Model number "NORA-2057: Eve." In other words, that's... me.
Jason: Whoa, hold on just a minute! What are you...Are you saying that you got your memory back...?
Eve: Yeah. Sorry that I didn't say anything about it until now.
Jason: No worries, Eve. But, is everything that you just said really true?
Eve: Yeah... honestly, I'm not supposed to be telling you this. Excessive interaction with a planet's native lifeforms is forbidden. But, since you saved me, I felt that you had the right to know... No, that's not it. I really... just wanted to tell you everything.
Jason: Eve...
Eve: Thank you for fighting alongside me all this time, Jason. This is... where we part ways. I have to continue this on my own.
Jason: ... What do you mean?
Eve: It's exactly as I said. You found Fred... so, that means you accomplished what you came here to do. That's why there's no need for you to keep putting yourself in danger fighting against these mutants. Leave the rest of this to me. I want you to return to the surface.
Jason: ......... ......... No way.
Eve: But Jason... why...?
Jason: There's still a lot I don't get, but if these mutants are aiming to destroy the earth, then I can't just walk away now.
Eve: You don't have to worry, I will...
Jason: Can one really do this all alone? Where is the guarantee in that? If you fail, do you have some other way to stop the mutants?
Eve: Well, I...
Jason: Even if you don't think you are gonna fail, you should always eliminate any risks you can, right? You know what needs to be done in order to make that happen.
Eve: .........
Jason: Eve, I... want to be there for you. Just like you are there for me. It's my turn to support you, Eve. (I held out my hand towards her.)
Eve: Jason...... Will you... give me your support?
Jason: (Eve's hand joined together with mine. I held it as tightly as I could.) Yeah! Leave it to me!
