Blaster Master Wiki
Advertisement
The area where the mutants set up their stronghold is inside the body of a gargantuan mutant. SOPHIA III must blast through the toughest mutant spawn yet to make it to the lord of the all mutants.
— Inside the Giant Mutant • Blaster Master Zero Website

Area 8 is the final area of Blaster Master and Blaster Master: Enemy Below, and the nominal final area of Blaster Master Zero. A hivelike labyrinth of unnerving tissues and other organic components, this literal breeding ground of the mutant scourge is staffed by the most simplistic of enemies yet boasts the most treacherous terrain, challenging the player with tight jumps lined with assorted spiky hazards and swarms of mutant annoyances.

In Blaster Master Zero, this area is called the "Mutant's Inner Body Area" in-game and "Inside the Giant Mutant" on the website; it is characterized as the innards of the previously defeated Skeleton Boss.

Area 8 is connected to Area 3 in Blaster Master and Area 2 in Blaster Master: Enemy Below, requiring the Wall 2 Operation Mode to access; in Blaster Master Zero, it is connected to Area 7, and can be accessed simply by defeating Skeleton Boss.

Jason: What is this...? (It was right before my very eyes. I don't know what it was, but I know that it was pulsating...)
Eve: Is this part of a mutant...? No... I think this IS a mutant...
Jason: ... Wait, are you saying that we are INSIDE that gigantic mutant's body?
Eve: I wish we weren't, but it looks to be the case. This looks bad...
Jason: ...... Don't worry. It doesn't matter where we are as long as we stick together.
Eve: Jason... Yeah, you're absolutely right. I have no idea why could be lurking ahead, so we need to be super careful.
— Enter Area 8
Jason: (From what looks like its digestive fluids, it seems like its cells are starting to regenerate. It's turning itself into a menace to deal with a foreign substance... us.) The mutant itself is white blood cells, and it probably is treating us like a virus, right?
Eve: Nope, it's the opposite. The mutant itself is a virus that has nested itself into the earth... I don't care how many times this thing resurrects itself, I'm gonna stop it from destroying this planet, no matter what...
Jason: Eve...
— The giant mutant (Talk with Eve)
Eve: The Mutant Lord is here...
Jason: It's alright... We can beat this thing.
— Hint of the end (Talk with Eve)
Eve: I just confirmed that the Mutant Lord is through here. Jason, this...
Jason: Yeah, this is the moment of truth. I'll be counting on you, Eve.
Eve: .........
Jason: C'mon, no doom-and-gloom faces now. I'm gonna take this thing down. You should be on your guard too... Never know what might show up here.
Eve: ...... Yeah, I'll do that. Promise me that you'll come back, OK?
Jason: You got it. I promise. ... Well, here I go.
— The moment of truth
Jason: I found the Mutant Lord! (This feels completely different from the other mutants...! My sense of danger is completely off the charts right now!)
Eve: Be care-...... Ja-... ... Some...-thing.........!! Ja-......... Wh-.........-ng?!
Jason: Eve? Crap, the transmission is dead. Is the Mutant Lord causing this...?! (I'm so worried about Eve and Fred, but there's only one thing to do now.) It's you and me now, Mutant Lord! I'm gonna put an end to this!!
— Encounter Underworld Lord
It's no use, I can't get the transmission working... Please be safe, Jason... Hm, what's this? Some kind of mutant? ...... It's the same as the Mutant Lord... no, it's even stronger...?! .........No way... This can't be happening...
— Eve (good ending route) • Blaster Master Zero
(The sheer power of this thing is so overwhelming. Not to mention its new form... Is this the Mutant Lord's true form, the one that possesses intelligence?!) Even if it is, I can't lose now! I gotta protect the earth, and Eve!
— Jason • Blaster Master Zero
Jason: Eve... Eve, can you hear me?
Eve: ... Jason! Yes, I can hear you! Thank goodness you're safe...
Jason: Somehow, yeah. I got so worried when the coms went down, but it looks like you're alright too. Whew, what a relief.
Eve: Yeah, SOPHIA was a huge help. So, is the Mutant Lord...?
Jason: Yeah, somehow I was able to defeat it... I think. I saw it destroyed right before my eyes, so I certainly hope that's the end of it. Just in case, can you do a scan and make sure you don't pick up anything that resembles it?
Eve: Just as I thought... Well then...
Jason: Eve? Something wrong?
Eve: ... No, it's nothing. There's no trace of the Mutant Lord here anymore.
Jason: I see... That means our battle with the mutants is over...
Eve: Yeah... it sure is. You saved this planet, Jason.
Jason: Not quite. We saved it. You, me, Fred, and SOPHIA too. I never could have done it by myself.
Eve: Hehe... I'm happy to hear you say that. But, that was our mission, so that means...
Jason: Eve...
Eve: It looks like SOPHIA found a route back to the surface, Jason. We can leave when you get back. I'll be waiting for you.
Jason: ... Got it. I'm on my way now.
— Emerging Victorious
Eve: It's so beautiful...
Jason: Yeah... (We returned to the surface shortly after nightfall. There were countless stars in the sky shining their brilliant light down upon us.)
Eve: .........
Jason: .........
Eve: Well... I guess I should be on my way.
Jason: ...... You're leaving already? You should relax a bit more...
Eve: No can do. While I do that, there could be mutants causing havoc somewhere out there... ... That's why I have to go. It's my mission... and...the reason I was created, after all.
Jason: .........
Eve: Also... I'm gonna leave Fred with you. I'm actually not supposed to do that, but I want you to think of me leaving Fred with you as my way of saying thanks... Fred, make sure you behave and listen to what Jason says, OK?
Fred: *ribbit ribbit*
Jason: Eve...
Eve: Thank you for everything, Jason. From the time you found me, all the way up until now... Just like you did for me, I want to help someone else in need. That's why... I need to go.
Jason: Eve, I... will never forget you. I truly believe that we will meet again someday...
Eve: ......... Jason... Yeah, for sure. I'll be waiting for that day.
— Smiles Under the Night Sky (bad ending)
(I wonder what you're looking at right now out there in the universe, Eve. If I am able to see you again... There's something I need to tell you.)
— Jason (bad ending) • Blaster Master Zero
Maybe if we just had some equipment or data, maybe things would have turned out differently... ... No, it wouldn't have changed anything. I just couldn't bear to involve him any further in all this. The Mutant Core... We have no information, and no one has ever seen it before. What we do know it that it possesses a power far greater than that of the Mutant Lord. As long as the Core still remains, the earth won't be safe from its inevitable ruin. But, SOPHIA is no match for it, so... This is all that we can do right now.) I'm sorry, Jason... I'm gonna protect this planet... and... you.

(Now... to flip SOPHIA III's self-destruct switch.........)
— Eve (bad ending) • Blaster Master Zero
Eve: It's beautiful...
Jason: Yeah, it sure is... (We were welcomed back to the surface by a night sky filled with countless glistening stars.)
Eve: .........
Jason: .........
Eve: ... Thank you for everything, Jason. I'm here now because you saved me, and were there for me...
Jason: I just did what I thought was right. But, I'm happy that meant I was able to help you out...
Eve: Yeah... you've done more for me than I could ever ask you for, which is why I can't ask you to do any more than I already have.
Jason: Eve...? (Suddenly, I felt a very warm, tender feeling. That was Eve, hugging me tightly, although it took me a little while to fully understand why.)
Eve: Jason... I have to go... so that I can protect you, and this planet.
Jason: Eve...? What are you... Wh-, wha-...? (It felt like the energy was being suddenly sapped from my body. My vision got all hazy... I could barely stand up...) What's... going on? I... don't understand...
Eve: Don't worry. You'll only be unconscious for a little while.
Jason: What are you... talking about? Why... (Everything quickly grew dim. My body was so warm, and before I knew it, I completely lost consciousness.)
Eve: ——————
Jason: (The last thing I saw was that, for the first time... Eve looked like she was about to cry.)
— Goodbye (good ending route)
I'm so sorry... (I knew you would have helped me if I asked. I'm sure of that. But, this Mutant Core... we know nothing about it, and have never even come face to face with it. Based on the readings I have, I can't guarantee that even SOPHIA being fully powered up like this stands a chance against it. I couldn't bear the thought of dragging you into battle against something that dangerous. I know I'm being completely selfish. But, this is something I must do.) I'm heading out, Jason.
— Eve (good ending route) • Blaster Master Zero
Jason: ...... Ngh... Where... What... happened...? Oh no, Eve!! (I remember her words... that she was gonna save the planet... and me. Not to mention... she looked so sad. Even just remembering it make my heart ache. I looked around, and saw SOPHIA was gone too. I tried to contact them, but it was no use... the connection was totally shot. That's when I remembered something she told me... She said that there was still a certain thing here on Earth that had to be destroyed.)
Fred: *ribbit ribbit*
Jason: Fred? Looks like Eve left you here too.
Fred: *croak*
Jason: ...... What should I do, buddy? Is there really NOTHING I can do?
Fred: *croak*
Jason: (As if he was telling me to follow him, Fred looked over at me and began to hop off somewhere.) Where are you going...? (I followed after him, and noticed that he went to the same place where we fell down that wormhole when I was chasing after him a while back.) Fred... what are you...?
Fred: ————————!!
Jason: (Fred opened his mouth, and suddenly the area around us began to tremble.) Wha...?! Hey, what's going on...? (The area began to tremble even more. Then, a strange hole appeared out of nowhere right in front of me.) No way... Is this... Is this a wormhole?! (Indeed, one of Fred's abilities is to create these so that he has a direct path to be able to return to SOPHIA. The wormhole kept on expanding. The moment when the wormhole expanded to its maximum size, "it" began to come into view.) This is......!!
— Tears Under the Night Sky (good ending route)
Jason: It looks like SOPHIA, but... Something is different. (I got close to it, and the cockpit opened up. Fred and I hopped in.) This one's called SOPHIA ZERO... Is it some kind of upgraded version? Its abilities and weaponry seem even more powerful than SOPHIA III's. At its core though, it seems to be the same as SOPHIA III. So, in that case, if I just take out my Blaster Rifle...
SOPHIA: "BLASTER RIFLE AUTHENTICATION COMPLETE" "SWITCHING FROM AUTOPILOT TO MANUAL OPERATION"
Jason: Alright, here we go... Hm? What's this? A message? ............... ... I see, so that's how it is. Alright, I know what I have to do. Fred, can you open another wormhole and get me to where SOPHIA... and Eve are located? We have no time to waste.
Fred: *croak*
Jason: I'm counting on you, buddy. Eve... please be safe!
