Apperances and Plot Roles
Jason discovers Eve unconscious in the underground residential ruins and Sophia's equipment reacts strangely to her. She reveals that she has lost parts of her memory and has intimate knowledge of Sophia's mechanics.
After Eve is found, she becomes Jason's co-pilot in the SOPHIA III, and can give Jason information about the MA and other advice during their journey. During this time, while she's alone in SOPHIA III, she managed to gain access to a databank that is biometrically coded to her. SOPHIA III recognizes her as "Android Nora-2057: Eve" and restores her memory, though this temporarily cuts her off from Jason.
When Jason returns, Eve doesn't talk to him about these events for a while, but eventually, she finally opens up to him and tells him the truth about SOPHIA III, herself, and Fred, and their mission to hunt down mutants wherever they may be. Jason offers his assistance to hunt down the mutants, which Eve reluctantly accepts.
After the Underworld Lord is defeated, Eve thanks Jason for his help, but renders him unconscious and leaves with SOPHIA III. During the final battle, SOPHIA III was infected by the Mutant Core, and Eve tried to get SOPHIA III safely away so she could activate its self-destruct and destroy it. But before she can do so, the Mutant Core completely overtakes SOPHIA III, turning it into Invem Sophia, and traps Eve inside.
Jason tracks down Eve with the aid of Sophia Zero, but Eve, thinking she's hallucinating, tells Jason to stay away. Jason refuses and battles Invem Sophia, managing to do enough damage to it that he can get inside and free Eve. With Eve safely out of harm's way, Jason destroys Invem Sophia, destroying it and the Mutant Core once and for all.
Afterwards, Jason and Eve celebrate their victory together under a beautiful starry sky. Jason would end with a final dialogue saying "Eve, there's something I want to tell you...", implying a love confession.
|“||!!! What is a person doing here?!”|
|— Jason • Blaster Master Zero|
|“||Jason: Hey! I'm here to help! Are you alright?!
Eve: ... ... ...
Jason: Dammit! C'mon, please open your eyes! (From the moment I held her in my arms, my Blaster Rifle began to emit this brilliant light. The light was getting bigger and bigger, and totally enveloped us.)”
|— Jason discovers Eve|
|“||Jason: ... What the...?! What's going on?
Eve: ... ... ... Hm... ... Wha...?
Jason: Thank goodness! You're awake!
Eve: ... ...? I... I...
Jason: You can do it! ... Let's get you over to SOPHIA for now. Hang in there!”
|— Eve wakes up|
|“||Jason: (Man... who is this girl? Seems like the signal came from her. My Blaster Rifle reacted to her... Somehow, I think this girl and SOPHIA are connected.)
Eve: ... ... Uuh.... Hm...? Who are... you? How... did I...?
Jason: Don’t worry, everything's OK. When you're feeling up to it, I wanna hear your story.”
|— Jason takes Eve to SOPHIA|
|“||Eve: Thank you for helping me. Could I... ask you your name?
Jason: Sure. I’m Jason Frudnick. You can call me Jason.
Jason: Got it. Don’t mean to rush you, Eve, but there's a lot I need to ask you.”
|— Jason asks about Eve's story|
|“||Jason: (I listened to her story, found out the reason why she's here, and learned that she seems to have lost a lot of her memory. On top of that, when it comes to tuning up and doing maintenance on SOPHIA, her skills blow mine out of the water.)
Eve: It's so strange, though. I feel like I remember this sensation...
Jason: (And that’s her story... I still feel like I have a lot more to learn about her, though.)”
|— Jason learns about Eve|
|“||Eve: Hey Jason, I'm finished tuning up SOPHIA.
Jason: Thanks, Eve. By the way... Now that you're back on your feet, what are you gonna do now?
Eve: ... ... ... Well, if it's OK with you... Do you think I'd be able to join you? You helped me so much back there. I want to return the favor. If you're using SOPHIA to find Fred, I think I could really help you out.
Jason: I'm happy to hear that... but, there's a good chance we're gonna have to fight some mutants. It'll be just as dangerous... no, probably even more dangerous than what happened here.
Eve: I know, but... if you're in danger, I might be able to save you too.
Jason: That's... (... She's absolutely right. I’m bound to run into things that I won't be able to do on my own going forward. If it was dangerous for her on her own, then I'm sure it'll be just as dangerous for me too. Going together is the way to do it. But, I wonder why she is so eager to lend me a hand...)
Eve: I guess... that's a no, then? In that case, if you leave me...
Jason: C'mon, don't say stuff like that. I... want you to help me out.
Eve: Oh...! OK, you got it! Leave it to me!”
|— Jason and Eve decide to go together|
|“||Eve: Looks like Fred's signal is coming from a different area now. I think it's the Industrial Area.
Jason: Industrial Area, huh? OK, let's go check it out.
Eve: One more thing. If you want to talk to me, choose the "RECEIVER" icon from the subscreen. There's lots of stuff I'd love to talk about with you, so I'm here to chat anytime you wanna talk.”
|— Eve locates Fred's signal|
|“||Eve: Jason, it looks like Fred's signal is coming from this vicinity.
Jason: Is there any way we can get a more specific location?
Eve: Well... looks like I can only receive the signal, not trace it... Sorry... this is the best I can do.
Jason: Hey, it's not your fault. We'll just have to search for him the old-fashioned way.
Eve: Hang on a second... It looks like the systems here are still in operation... and have been so for a while. Let's stay on alert. Never know what might happen.”
|— Enter Area 3|
|“||Eve: Now that I think about it... Jason, why are you searching for Fred like this anyway?
Jason: Whoops, guess I never really explained it, huh? It's just my theory, but I think that Fred is a type of creature that was supposed to have gone extinct a long time ago. I'm no biologist, but I think Fred could be a clue in regards to the restoration of a lost ecosystem. That's why I need to find him and bring him home safely.
Eve: I see... So that's why you need to find him sooner rather than later.
Jason: (Finding SOPHIA, my encounter with mutants, meeting Eve... All of this happened because I crossed paths with Fred. I really wanna know how Fred, SOPHIA, and Eve are connected... But I think I'll keep quiet about that... for now...)”
|— Why search for Fred (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Jason: I can't help but wonder what the reason is for these mutants to come all the way to the depths of the earth like this. (Looking back on our battles, it's hard to imagine that they have any sort of intelligence, but... It's quite clear that they have a sense of animosity towards SOPHIA. Maybe there is some sort of reason why they attack us...) Hey Eve, can you check SOPHIA for what info she has on mutants?
Eve: Umm... sure. It'll take a little bit of time, but I'll look into it.
Jason: Much obliged. Let me know if you find anything.”
|— What are the mutants (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Eve: Hey Jason... about the mutants...
Jason: Did you find something?
Eve: There wasn't anything concrete about mutants, but I found some info about something that resembles them...
Jason: Resembles...? What would that be?
Eve: I found an image of something that looks like a mutant, and I searched more from there. However, this info is still pretty incomplete... but I gathered up as much as I could.
Jason: (Eve pulled everything up on the monitor. By indiscriminately taking all of the planetary resources they can, they end up turning the living creatures of that planet into some kind of inorganic life-form. Also, if they aren't continuously acquiring resources, they will be unable to survive. It looks like they aren't intelligent life-forms, but they are able to perceive other signs of life, and they are extremely violent towards them.) Got it... Maybe they are attacking SOPHIA because she has living beings like us on board. (It's kinda hard not to think that something bad is gonna happen when you have very little information like this...) Thanks, Eve.
Eve: No problem. If I find anything else I'll let you know.”

|“||Eve: Looks like SOPHIA will be able to hover now thanks to this chip. Press the Jump button in mid-air to stay airborne, but make sure you keep an eye on your SP.
Jason: That's awesome, but what was a chip doing in a place like this?”
|— Acquire Hover Pack|
|“||Jason: WHAT THE...?!
Eve: Jason, look up!”
|— Central Gear encounter|
|“||Jason: What is that gear?! It's friggin' HUGE!
Eve: I know it sounds crazy, but it looks like that's a mutant!
Jason: Crap... did that thing lure us here using that chip as bait?!
Eve: Watch out, Jason! Here it comes!”
|— Central Gear shows itself|
|“||Jason: Phew, made it out alive... I can't believe that thing was a mutant.
Eve: Yeah... I was surprised too. But I truly believed that you could defeat that thing.
Jason: That was all thanks to your support, Eve.
Eve: Hehe, you’re welcome. Hm? Hey... Fred’s signal is disappearing...
Jason: What's going on? Can't get a read on his signal?
Eve: Yeah, I got nothing now.. Sorry, if I would've kept an eye...
Jason: Don't sweat it. If you find it again, let me know.”
|— Central Gear defeated|
|“||Eve: ...We've totally lost track of Fred.
Jason: Man, that sucks...
Eve: There's also a chance that Fred's signal is too far away to pick up... If we head to a different area, we may be able to get the signal again. It doesn't seem like there's anywhere new we can go in the Industrial Area with SOPHIA's current abilities... Is there anywhere we saw that looks like we could access it with the Hover ability?
Jason: ...I can think of one, but man, we're really gonna have to backtrack.”
|— Lost Fred again (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Fred's signal isn't coming from this area. I wonder where he could be...”|
|— Eve; Hint to leave Area 3 (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Jason: It'd be great if there was somewhere in the Forest or Residential areas that we could get to with the HOVER ability...
Eve: Why don't we look for places we haven't been to yet? Who knows what new stuff we could find!”
|— Hint to Area 2 Life Up and Area 4 (Talk with Eve)|
|“||I guess Fred's not in this area... Let's go have a look in another area!”|
|— Eve; Hint to check another area (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Eve: Oh... Hey, Jason. I found Fred's signal again.
Jason: Excellent. Where's it coming from?
Eve: Let's see... seems like it's pretty far away.
Jason: Looks like it's the Glacier Area. OK, let's make our way over there.”
|— Enter Area 4|
|“||Eve: What the...? What's this all about? Hey Jason, come have a look at this.
Jason: (The monitor showed a bunch of mutants gathering around the Glacier Area.) The mutants are... joining up with each other? What's going on here?
Eve: ... ... ...
Eve: Oh... I'm sorry. I got this data at the same time I received Fred's signal.
Jason: (Hmmm... I feel like there's gotta be some meaning behind all this.)
Eve: (What's going on...? I feel this horrible premonition... like as if I... know something.) ...?! Ahhh...!!
Jason: Eve? What's wrong?
Eve: I feel like I'm remembering something!
Jason: Take it easy, Eve! Don't feel like you have to force it.
Eve: Hah, hah... but...
Jason: Why don't you rest for a bit? I can do this on my own for now.
Eve: ... Yeah... I'll do that. It'll be nice to relax for a while.
Jason: Yeah, please do. (Up until now, the mutants have been just scattered about... but seeing them gathering like this makes me think that something is up.)”
|— Mutants gathering (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Jason: This Waterworks Area feels more like a maze than anything...
Eve: It's really easy to forget which places are connected to each other.
Jason: You feeling better now, Eve?
Eve: Yeah I am, now that I rested for a bit... sorry I wasn't able to remember anything.
Jason: It's all good, don't worry about it. I should've been paying more attention... sorry.
Eve: Too much apologizing around here, hehe. But hey, everything's OK now, right?
Jason: Yup. But... if you feel like you are getting some memories back, just take it easy on yourself, OK?
Eve: Geez, you're such a worrywart... But, thank you. I will.”
|— Not able to remember (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Seems like Fred's in the Glacier Area. First, let's look for a way to get to the next area.”|
|— Eve; Hint to progress to the boss (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Jason: We got a huge mutant here! (... Maybe it's my imagination, but I can't help but think that... It kinda looks like Fred...)
Eve: Ewww... this thing is nasty! It's so slimy...
Jason: Eve... totally get what you're saying, but let's focus here.
Eve: Uugh... right. Here we go!”
|— Ribbiroll encounter|
|“||Eve: Looks like this is the security program that opens the shutters in the Waterworks Area.
Jason: Right on... Looks like we'll be able to remove the security and pry some more shutters open.
Eve: Yup. I'll install the security program into your Blaster Rifle. You don't even have to exit SOPHIA, just get close to the shutters and you'll be able crack the security. However, if SOPHIA can't get close to a lock, you'll have to access them on foot to get them open.
Jason: Got it. Thank you. After all this, how are things going over in the Glacier Area?
Eve: Hang on just a sec. ... Looks like there's even more of them now than there was before. Besides, Fred's signal still hasn't moved. But those mutants gathering...
Jason: There's a chance they might be after something. Let's get over there as quickly as we can.”
|— Acquire Key 1|
|“||Jason: Looks like from here on out is some man-made sea area... this is gonna suck. (SOPHIA doesn't have much underwater mobility, so getting through this is looking pretty impossible.) Eve, can you check to see if there's anything in this area that could help with SOPHIA's underwater mobility problem?
Eve: Yep, already on it. Just gimme another sec here. Got it. Looks like I'm getting a signal from a chip that seems like it could help with getting SOPHIA through the sea.
Jason: The chip is in the sea though... I guess I'll have to dive in there and go fetch it out myself.
Eve: The waters can get really rough, so please be careful.”
|— Enter Area 5|
|“||Eve: Jason, I checked the signal. You should find the chip inside there.
Jason: Got it. Send me the signal when you get a second.
Eve: Yup, roger that.”
|— The signal (Talk with Eve)|
|“||... Phew. OK, time to sort through this intel and give SOPHIA a tune-up. (I keep working like this, but my memory hasn't come back. I'm starting to get impatient with it all.) I know Jason said that I shouldn't try to force it, but... (Let's check out SOPHIA's database. There might be a clue somewhere. I can operate SOPHIA despite having lost my memory. There's gotta be something here... I know it. When I checked the database, I found a single piece of information that was locked behind some high-grade security.) Is this information all confidential? Looks like I need some sort of authentication, but... (I touched the monitor, and SOPHIA's speech interface began to run.)”|

Eve: ...... What's going on here...? Why does it know my name, and... what's this about an... android? (With that voice, a massive amount of information was displayed before my eyes. As I was reading it, I constantly felt these sharp pains in my head. I didn't want to know what was happening, but I knew what this was. I really should've stopped reading. I know this, and yet, I could not allow myself to look away. I knew that I needed to see this so that I could return to my real self.) I... I... AAAAGH...!! AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!

Eve: Wh-.........? ... in...... na-... E.........?
Jason: Eve? Are you alright?! (Eve is definitely inside SOPHIA, but it seems the transmission is bad. I hope nothing happened to her...) Damn, of all the times...! Please be safe, Eve!”
|— Encounter Hard Shell|
|“||Jason: Eve! Can you hear me?!
Eve: ...... Jason?
Jason: Eve! You're safe! Thank goodness...
Eve: Hey, what's the matter?
Jason: I could be asking you the same question... The transmission to you was really unstable. I kept calling out to you... did you not notice?
Eve: The transmission...? Oh, I'm sorry... I didn't notice...
Jason: Hey, I'm just glad that everything is alright. By the way, I got the chip. Heading your way now.
Eve:Ah... right. Um, please be careful getting back... OK?
Jason: Hm? Yeah, I will.”
|— Acquire Dive Gear|
|“||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.”
|— Enter Area 6|
Jason: Is that... Fred?!”
|— Jason finds 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...
|— Jason finds Fred cont.|
|“||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!”
|— Encounter Ancient Freeze|
|“||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.”
|— Acquire Wall Climb|
|“||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.
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.
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!”
|— The truth|
|“||Eve: I checked over the intel we got from Fred, and I managed to find the location where all of these mutants are originating from. It's a place even deeper into the earth...
Jason: How are we gonna get there?
Eve: Looks like there's an old transport tunnel in the Industrial Area that they used for mining purposes a long time ago.
Jason: Right on, thanks for looking into this. (Now that we have the WALL ability, there could definitely be an area that we previously couldn't get to without it.)”
|— Hint to return to Area 3 (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Jason: (Since Eve's memory returned, I learned that our enemy's end goal was to drain the earth of its resources and destroy it. In other words, they need to be destroyed at all costs. There is one mutant that commands the rest of the horde... The Mutant Lord. Through its process of mutation, it has acquired unfathomable amounts of intelligence.)
Eve: There's a very good chance that this commander mutant was a survivor from a battle that took place a long time ago. The reason they are attacking SOPHIA is probably because it bears resemblance to an aircraft we used in our battles with them. Before they are able to destroy the earth, they need to ensure their own survival, which is why I think they are treating SOPHIA as a top-level threat.
Jason: Well, if that's the case, then it looks like we know why they are on the offensive. So, that means we gotta hurry and find where this Lord is hiding.
Eve: Yeah, and to make matters worse, it can create new mutants... We also have to consider the possibility that it could create a new mutation for itself, too.
Jason: OK, let's look around for any places we haven't searched yet.”
|— The Mutant Lord; Revisit Area 5 (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Jason: So she's really an android... (There's no way we'd ever be able to make an android like her with the technical capabilities we have on Earth right now. An AI that has not just emotions, but the ability to think and act on its own is still just a dream. Makes me wonder just how technologically advanced Eve's home planet is. I can only imagine at this point, though.)
Eve: If you're gonna stare like that, I'm gonna wonder just what in the world you're thinking about...
Jason: Ahh, sorry about that. Man, I really can't see you as anything but a normal human.
Eve: ...... Are you saying that you like chicks who are robot-like?
Jason: Nope, I think the way you are now is good...
Eve: I... I see... Well, that's good. Hm? Why do I think that's good...?”
|— Jason wonders about Eve; Revisit Area 4 (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Jason: (SOPHIA III - a tank vehicle bearing the name of Eve's home planet. It was created as a battle tank that could destroy the mutant threat that is plaguing many planets. It's made to operate automatically, but it also has a "Blaster Rifle," a weapon that needs to be operated by hand. From a perpetual motion system to an auto-repair function, this tank sure has a lot of features. It even has a support bot that helps it perform emergency maintenance. The bot activates when SOPHIA's AI has a tough time handling the situation at hand.)
Eve: That should pretty much sum up all the info I have on SOPHIA. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them.
Jason: Well, there is one thing... Up until now, SOPHIA's been fighting against mutants, right?
Eve: Yup, that's right.
Jason: So... when in the world did the mutants and SOPHIA come to this planet anyway?
Eve: Hmm... I would say... they probably arrived hundreds of years ago.
Jason: Hundreds of years ago? It's crazy to think they've been here so long.
Eve: Due to a twist in the dimensions of space, by physically traveling between my home planet and the earth... It seems like a rift in the axis of time was created that reversed the flow of time... couldn't tell you how or why, though.
Jason: Rifts in the axis of time, huh? Solving a mystery like that is definitely out of my league... Although, speaking of mysteries, I remember reading about an unidentified comet that hit the earth hundreds of years ago...
Eve: Makes me wonder if that's how the mutants came here. But, that would mean the Mutant Lord has been dormant this whole time... When we pursued the mutants to Earth, I feel like it wasn't that long ago.
Jason: I see... so that's how it went. (Poor thing had been fighting by itself for a long time. Thank you, SOPHIA.)”
|— SOPHIA and the mutants; Revisit Area 1 (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Jason: (It turns out that Fred is actually an autonomously operating drone that SOPHIA came equipped with. According to Eve, when the drone arrives on a planet, it disguises itself as a creature native to that planet and begins working. The purpose of the drone is to gather intel and learn the whereabouts of mutants. It can send that intel to SOPHIA, to stopover checkpoints, and even all the way back to Eve's home planet. However, in order to keep SOPHIA's whereabouts concealed, intel can only be transmitted at certain times. Because of that, there are times when SOPHIA isn't able to receive signals. That's why the drone has a function that allows it to make a wormhole that is connected to SOPHIA's location. It proves to be really useful when acquiring intel and sending data.) Now that you mention it, I just thought of something... (When I was chasing after Fred on the surface, the mysterious hole that led me here suddenly opened up. Maybe that would explain why I've had so much trouble finding him.) But man, to think all this is packed into one little machine like this...
Eve: It's because getting info on mutants is super important. Even the little drone is quite powerful.
Jason: I see... Those who control information control the battle, huh?
Fred: *croak croak*”
|— Fred; Revisit Area 2 (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Eve: Looks like this data matches the information we have in SOPHIA's database... Jason, I just got confirmation. The one who is commanding all these mutants, the Mutant Lord, is in the area after this one.
Jason: Got it, thanks. Now we just gotta find a way to get outta this area, but...
Eve: Yeah... there's probably a lot of mutants here. To make matters worse, it looks like the mutants who left the Glacier Area made their way over to this one.
Jason: No way... Do you think they anticipated that we were coming here?
Eve: I wanna say "no way!" but with the Mutant Lord being an intelligent creature... you never know.
Jason: If that's the case, I doubt they are gonna let us just stroll on through. Alright, let's try to find the path of least resistance here.”

Eve: It won't fire unless your SP gauge is maxed out, but make no mistake... it has tremendous power. However, using it can be quite a burden in a number of ways...
Jason: Looks like I'll have to use it only when the timing is right.”
|— Acceleration Blast (Talk with Eve)|
|“||Jason: You... gotta be kidding me!! This thing is ALIVE!!
Eve: Jason! Jason!!! Get out of there!! Now!! That gargantuan mutant has an extremely tough outer armor... Your Blaster Rifle won't even make a scratch on it!
Jason: Damn it... I don't know how I can beat this thing without SOPHIA... But I gotta find a way!”
|— Encounter Skeleton Boss|
|“||Jason: How's this, Eve?!
Eve: Perfect! I'm heading your way now!”
|— Pull the lever|
|“||I don't care how strong this thing's armor is! SOPHIA is gonna blast right through it!!”|
|— Jason • Blaster Master Zero|
|“||Eve: It's done charging! Ready to fire, Jason!
Jason: Take this, mutant scum! ACCELERATION BLAST!!”
|— Full Acceleration Blast|
|“||Jason: Up ahead is where the ringleader, the Mutant Lord, is hiding, right?
Eve: Yeah... no doubt about it. This time, I... No... We, yeah, we, will put an end to this. Let's go, Jason!
|— Nearing the end|
|“||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...
|— 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.
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...
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: 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.
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*
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.”|
|— Eve (bad ending) • Blaster Master Zero|
|“||(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: ... 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.)
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.
Jason: ...... What should I do, buddy? Is there really NOTHING I can do?
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...?
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.
Jason: I'm counting on you, buddy. Eve... please be safe!”
|— Zero (good ending route)|
|“||What IS this place...? (I emerged from the wormhole and into this strange space that was an amalgamation of a bunch of different things.) Am I still on Earth? Or somewhere completely different? (Regardless of where I've ended up, I need to look for Eve and SOPHIA.)”|
|— Jason • Blaster Master Zero|
|“||Damn, I can't connect... Please be safe, Eve!”|
|— Jason (Talk with Eve) • Blaster Master Zero|
|“||... Where in the world am I? (Fred's wormhole brought me here though, so that means that there is no doubt that Eve and SOPHIA must be here somewhere.) Keep it together... I know how I'm gonna find Eve and SOPHIA. (Now to just make sure I didn't overlook anything.)”|
|— Jason • Blaster Master Zero|
|“||Jason: SOPHIA...! Oh no, don't tell me a mutant hijacked it! Eve! Are you there?! Please answer me!!
Eve: "Jason...? Is that... you? Why... are you here...?" "... Don't come... any closer..."
Jason: What?! Eve, that's...”
|— Encounter Invem SOPHIA|
|“||Eve: "I'm so sorry... after all you did for me..." "In the end... I wasn't able to protect you... or anyone else..." "There's no way to stop the Core now..." "... Please, Jason... Destroy SOPHIA and me..."
Jason: What?! There's no way I could do something like that!! ... I won't let you die!
Eve: "It has completely taken over SOPHIA... we can't take it back..." "I don't... want to see SOPHIA destroy this planet..." "So, please... destroy us..."”
|— Destroy us|
|“||Eve?! EVE?! DAMN IT! What am I gonna do?!”|
|— Jason • Blaster Master Zero|
|“||... Jas... son......”|
|— Eve (Talk with Eve) • Blaster Master Zero|
|“||(It let out a huge blast of smoke... I knew what was about to happen next. This was the mutant Eve was referring to as the Core. If I deal this thing damage, that should weaken its hold over them bit by bit. I gotta find a way to get Eve out of here, and then destroy SOPHIA. I can't fail now. It's not an option.) This is it... I can do this!”|
|— Jason • Blaster Master Zero|
|“||Jason: Eve!! Are you alright?!
Eve: ... Uuh...
Jason: (She seems to be unconscious, but otherwise unharmed. Now that the Core's power has weakened... I was able to tear off the appendages that were holding Eve captive and lift her out of the cockpit. Now we gotta hurry back to SOPHIA Zero.)”
|“||All that's left now is to destroy the Core... Here we go, SOPHIA Zero!”|
|— Jason • Blaster Master Zero|
|— Eve • Blaster Master Zero|
|“||Eve: (That's right, I found the Core, and flipped SOPHIA's self-destruct switch... but then SOPHIA got taken over... possessed... I fought desperately, but there was nothing I could do... I couldn't stop it from taking over everything. I made a choice, to protect you snd this planet... But in the end, I couldn't do anything. In a cruel twist of fate, SOPHIA ended up becoming a tool that would be used to destroy the planet. My senses were completely dim, but somehow I heard a voice that there should have been no way in the world I could hear...
Jason: "Eve, Are you there?! Please answer me!!"
Eve: Jason...? Is that... you? Why... are you... here? (I think my memory circuits are failing. There should be no way that he could be here. Yeah, this is... just an illusion. He got so worried that he came here.) ... Don't come... any closer... (Even if he's just an illusion, I can't let the Core take him over. Damn, I can't move anything from my head down. I definitely do not want him to see me like this.) I'm so sorry... after all you did for me... In the end... I wasn't able to protect you... or anyone else... There's no way to stop the Core now... ... Please, Jason... Destroy SOPHIA and me...
Jason: "What?! There's no way I could do something like that!!" "... I won't let you die!"
Eve: It has completely taken over SOPHIA... we can't take it back... I don't... want to see SOPHIA destroy this planet... (Although, there's no point in me asking an illusion to do this. But... just in case that really is him...) So, please... destroy us...”
|“||Eve: (Then, all of a sudden...)
Jason: Eve, open your eyes! Eve!!
Eve: (I was awakened from my nightmare.)”
|— The nightmare is over|
|“||Eve: Ja-... Jason...?
Jason: Eve... Thank goodness...
Eve: Why are... you here...? That... wasn't a dream...?
Jason: Hm? I'm not sure what dream you're talking about... but more importantly, are you injured? Does anything feel out of place? The Core is destroyed, but I'm worried about what that thing might have done to you.
Eve: I see... So, it wasn't a dream... Don't worry, I'm alright. But, how were you able to get here, Jason...?
Jason: That was all thanks to SOPHIA Zero and Fred.
Fred: *ribbit ribbit*
Eve: SOPHIA Zero... You mean... this machine?
Jason: To be honest, I don't know much about it either. But, Fred can send intel all the way back to your home planet, right? Maybe, just maybe, since they learned about the Core from Fred... They used Fred's wormhole to send SOPHIA Zero to Earth.
Jason: Eve... there's something I want you to see.
Eve: Is this some kind of message?
SOPHIA: "To our precious daughter: Please use this machine to protect them."
- Kane Gardner
- Jennifer Gardner
Jason: Perhaps they sent SOPHIA ZERO not just to help destroy the Core, but also for you, Eve. To help keep you safe.
Eve: ............ ...... I'm sorry, Jason. Could you please... hold me for a bit?
Jason: ... Yeah.
Eve: ...... Thank... you...!”
|— Thank you|
|“||Jason: I guess it really is all over now...
Eve: Yeah... and you were the one who made that happen. I wasn't able to do it by myself... It's because of you I'm here now. You were there for me, supported me, in ways that I will never be able to fully repay you for, so... I need to tell you this... and I'll happily say it a million times: Thank you. Thank you so much.
Jason: (She showed me the most beautiful smile I had ever seen. More importantly though, she looked so... happy. This is the smile I always wanted to see from her: A glowing smile, straight from the heart.) Eve... I have something I need to tell you too...”
|— Smiles Under the Blue Sky|
Following the events of Blaster Master Zero, it is revealed that the Mutant Core left behind a series of mutant cells within Eve's body. She began to rapidly mutate on the right side of her body, growing an elongated arm, one of her eyes being visibly corrupted, and a number of blue-tinted infections visibly grew across her body. Jason searched the underground for a cure, to the point where Sophia Zero and his Blaster Rifle were breaking faster than Eve could fix them, but there were no leads to be found.
Jason concluded that if a cure did not exist on Earth, it might exist on another planet, more specifically Planet Sophia, where Eve and the SOPHIA MAs originated. From the remains of Sophia Zero (and thanks to an unspecified accident), the two created Gaia-SOPHIA, the first Earth-built MA, capable of theoretically unlimited space travel thanks to its Gaia System.
As the crew lands on Planet Flosante, G-SOPHIA's Hover module suffers a critical failure, forcing the crew to scour the planet for parts to repair it. After dispatching several mutants, they finally fix the module and can move on to the next planet. Throughout the exploration, Eve consistenly displays trouble staying conscious, as even with G-SOPHIA's energy and life support, she still struggles to keep the mutant corruption at bay.
On Planet Montoj, Eve and Jason meet another Metal Attacker pilot, Gonbei. After the two fight, Tae and Eve interrupt, making Gonbei realize the whole ordeal was a misunderstanding. Tae and Gonbei mention that their MA, Kuebiko, was heavily damaged. Eve offers their resources to Tae's delight, but cannot directly assist due to her circumstances. Eve and Jason assist Gonbei and Tae with Zavira, Gathervira, and their requests before moving on.
Approaching Immigration Ship L-229, Eve spends most of the journey unconscious. Jason comes to realize he needs an extra power source for G-SOPHIA, as all the sub-weapons and modules, while necessary for exploration and combat, leave less energy to allocate for Eve's life support. Eventually, Jason manages to obtain the Burn Spark which would allow Eve to properly come back online. By the time she did, Eve was in time to see Jason battling against the mutant-controlled Defend Them All.
On Planet Stranga, Eve mentions feeling unwell, possibly due to the weird electromagnetic fields on the planet, while Jason and Fred seemingly display no symptoms. Eventually thet meet Kanna and Kenwood, the pilot and support droid of the MA Eir, with the former attacking them almost immediately after the introductions. Following the fight, Kanna forces them to retrieve three fruits to get the Access Key to the next dimensional tunnel. When they return, Kanna admits she didn't actually know where the Access Key was, but used the fruits and a flower attached to her head to create a potion for Eve to feel better. After the defeat of Cerbeboss, the two assist Kanna again by retrieving a certain plant for her that apparently shot off into space.
In Area D, G-SOPHIA is attacked by the Garuda and its pilot Leibniz. Leibniz mocks Jason for keeping a "broken doll" like Eve around, angering him and leading to a battle. Following the attack, Jason and Eve flee to safety. After reaching orbit, Eve reveals that, as the support droid of the G-SOPHIA, if Jason had attacked someone like Leibniz did, she is be programmed to deactivate or even self-destruct the MA as MA's are not supposed to fight one another. She wonders why the Garuda's support droid would fail to stop the attack, with Jason adding if it even had one. Later, while on foot, Jason faces Leibniz alone. After Leibniz falls, he becomes despondent over the fact that Jason wouldn't throw Eve away, with Jason noting it being as if Leibniz wasn't actually talking to him.
On Planet Divido, Eve and Jason meet Tesset who, at the time, was separated from her Metal Attacker Atom and her partner Stein. After their conversation, Tesset is separated from the two by the powerful dimensional rifts on the planet. After Jason and Eve make their way across Area-D to Divido's other side, they encounter Stein, however Eve quickly notices his communication system isn't active, and Eve sets about manually activating it while Jason fights Atom. After Eve succeeds in activating the communications, Stein apologizes for his attacks, as he did not realize people were aboard G-Sophia and thinking it was a Mutant Attacker. Eve and Jason assist in defeating Dig-Rawler and getting Stein a booster.
After finishing their work on Divido, the two make their way to Area G, where they are once again accosted by Leibniz. He continues insulting Eve, and learning of Jason's work across the universe, mocks him for coming to "save" Area G. After a brutal clash both in MAs and on foot, Leibniz mocks Jason, telling him it would be better for him to take what Jason holds dear before Planade-G does, just as it took everything from him.
Jason and Sophia land on Planade-G, but Eve quickly warns Jason that, should they destroy Planade-G, the energy stored inside would tear the universe asunder. Jason uses the Gaia System to drain Planade-G of energy, ultimately defeating it, but they are be caught in the resulting surge from its death.
Should the player not collect the three Emblems, then Eve, Jason, and Fred end separated in Area Ω. Eve realizes that she failed to help Jason, and simply stood back as he handled all the hard part of the work. She thinks back to the other MA pilots and their partners, and wonders if they had something the G-SOPHIA crew were lacking. With her corruption spreading without G-SOPHIA's energy, Eve calls to Jason one last time as her consciousness fades.
Should the player collect the Emblems, Eve would lay in Area Ω, thinking about how she always leaned on Jason for everything. After a few moments, she realizes that Jason may be in trouble, and she needs to go to his aid and save him. She rises, surprising even herself with her energy and determination. Traversing Area Omega on foot, Eve even manages to use her I-HIX to fight mutants using some sort of "purification energy".
After a battle with another Dig-Rawler, Eve finds the broken pieces of a Blaster Rifle. Her mind immediately goes to the worst-case scenario before she realizes that it's a different model from Jason's. A few areas later, Eve encounters Leibniz and Garuda, with the former ready to scrap Eve, alone and without an MA. Suddenly, Eve notices something further ahead, which happens to be a girl and another MA. The girl introduces herself as Elfie, a support droid. She explains that while fighting alongside her pilot Roddy, they were sucked into Area Omega. They bumped into the Mutant Cocoon, a beast said to be even stronger than an Overlord, which damaged the MA and separated the crew, leaving Elfie to fix things by herself. She asks if they've seen Roddy somewhere, but verges on tears when she recognizes the broken Blaster Rifle Eve holds as his. Leibniz begins to panic, demanding Elfie to stop mourning since she and Eve are just supposed to be "dolls". Elfie's response on how sad he himself must feel cuts deep, however, and he begins to go hysteric. Elfie simply responds that her spirit is all that remains, since her injuries from the Mutant Cocoon became fatal after she tried working on her MA. Leibniz is shocked until he receives a report from Garuda that Elfie has no readings, nothing resembling a sign of life. She is, for all intents and purposes, a lingering spirit, and proof that even support droids have souls.
In deep thought, Leibniz reveals the purpose of the Emblems to Eve. They are actually "All-Purpose Interplanetary Markers", capable of opening a wormhole to the corresponding MA from anywhere in the universe. He tells her not to lose them until she finds Jason again, then leaves claiming he has some business to attend to. As Garuda flies away, Elfie invites Eve to pilot her MA, since she cannot do so as a spirit. As Elfie fades away, she leaves the words "May 'bravery' guide you-" as Eve boards the MA, now named Andreia.
Traveling in Andreia, Eve finds Fred, collapsed but still alive. As the G-SOPHIA's support lifeform, Fred has an innate sense of where it is at all times, allowing Eve to find it.
Eve finds Jason and G-SOPHIA, turned into stone in front of the Mutant Cocoon Drolrevo. Fearing the worst has come to pass, she's relieved to find there's still a faint vital sign coming from Jason. Eve battles Drolrevo, but cannot keep up with the mutant's regeneration. In theory, Andreia's Acceleration Blast could damage it enough to slow its healing, but it's been locked due to previous damage and firing it now would destroy the MA, assuming Drolrevo even gave Eve an opportunity to charge it. Just as all seems hopeless, a transmission comes in from the other MA pilots. Apparently, Leibniz stopped by each of their planets to tell them that the G-SOPHIA crew needed their help, and they're on their way. Sensing an opportunity, Eve continues to fight to try and damage Drolrevo a bit more. As the MAs Kuebiko, Eir, and Atom come barreling through wormholes, Eve overrides the safety on the Acceleration Blast. While she regrets destroying Andreia like this, Elfie's spirit whispers in her ear, reassuring that their memory will live on in Eve. As the MAs distracted the Mutant Cocoon, Eve charges Andreia's Acceleration Blast, enhanced with her own purification energy. The resulting blast rips Drolrevo's exterior and miraculously frees Jason and G-SOPHIA. The battle is not yet finished however, as the Cocoon breaks to reveal Drolrevo Mastro, the Mutant Cocoon's true form. Unfortunately, the Acceleration Blast has all but wrecked Andreia, and Eve is left no recourse but to pray for Jason's success.
Triumphing against Drolrevo Mastro, the G-SOPHIA crew finally reunites. They thank the MA pilots and their crews as they all return to real space, where the G-SOPHIA crew gaze upon planet Sophia. Jason and Eve reminesce on their journey, and remark on how they've already accomplished their goal, since it seems Eve's purification-boosted Accel Blast also apparently removed her mutant corruption. Just before the credits begin to roll, Eve begins to say, "Jason, there's something I want to tell you..."
After Jason and Eve defeated Drolrevo, they repaired and upgraded Gaia-SOPHIA into "Gaia-Sophia SV". Upon landing on planet Sophia, they are attacked by the Sophia's Army, Sophia Force (SF). The fight renders Gaia-SOPHIA SV inoperable. Jason and Eve are captured and separated from each other. One day, the base which holds Jason is under attack by mutants. Jason breaks free from the prison and retrieves his MA and Fred. When he arrives at the gate of the base, he encountes Kane Gardener, the commander of the SF. After a brief fight against each other, Kane talks to Jason privately, tells him that Eve disappeared and lets him escape. Therefore, Jason sets off in another adventure to find Eve and seek the reason behind her disappearance.
After Jason escapes from the SF and teams up with Leibniz, he receives a garbled transmission from Eve telling him to use the new Vision Reversal Visor (VRV) system to cross into the alternate dimensions. Before Eve disappears, she leaves some receding of how Jason's new equipment works.
As Jason searches for Eva, he finds out that she has become a mutant. When G-SOPHIA SV crew finds Eve, they were shocked to see that Planade-G is still alive as the Mutant Core, Bloodstained Planade-G. This enrages Leibniz, needing to be calmed down by Jason. Bloodstained Planade-G, backed into a corner, escapes into Super Dimensional Space with Eve. Before the G-SOPHIA SV crew can follow, G-SOPHIA SV breaks down from all the fighting.
Jason frees Eve by finishing Bloodstained Planade-G off with the Elemental Blaster. To everyone's surprise, Jennifer tells them all that Eve is still the Mutant Queen. Kane can't let Eve live as the Mutant Queen, so he prepares to destroy Eve with the SF. Leibniz, realizing that Eve doesn't want to be cured, tells everyone to ask Eve why. Eve tells everyone that if she dies, the mutants will go on a uncontrollable rampage and that she will send them all along with herself to Super Dimensional Space forever. Kane agrees with Eve and makes a deal with her to end the war with mutants. Jason, refusing let Eve go, has to make a choice.
This choice will determine Jason, Leibniz, and Eve's fate.
Jason couldn't reach Eve and was forced to let her go. Afterwards, Kane was able to clear the misunderstanding the Sophia Force had of Jason and Leibniz and got the two to join the Sophia Force. Several years later, Planet Sophia has formed an interstellar union with the other planets that were part of the MA Project, with Earth joining soon. Unknown to everyone, Jason has a feeling that Eve is watching them from Super Dimensional space.
If Jason does reach Eve, Jason promises her that he will find a way to be reunited one day. Afterwards, Kane was able to clear the misunderstanding the Sophia Force had with Jason and Leibniz. It's unknown if the two join the Sophia Force in this ending.
Sometime later, back on Earth. Kane, equipped with new gears heads to Earth to find several dimension ruptures and thinks Eve has broken the deal they made. As Kane search for Eve, he is stopped by the other MA Teams.
After Kane and SOPHIA THE 3RD NORA MA-01 "Metal Attacker" get through Gonbei, Eir, Atom, and Rising Garuda despite the odds, they find Jason. Kane sees what Jason has become and demands the two of them to stop what they are doing. Both MA Pilots, refusing to back down, prepare to fight. Before a victor can be decided, Eve reveals that everyone was protecting Jason and Eve's twin babies, Roddy and Elfie. Jason and Eve, knowing that they can never live in normal space, gave up on having children until Leibniz convinced them and said he will take care of them. Everything that has happened was all Leibniz’s idea as he was the one who called the other MA Teams to help stop Kane. Jason tells Kane that there are some mutants which refuse to obey Eve, called Lightning Beings. After hearing the two out, Kane realizes that Eve did not break the deal they made and promises the Sophia Force will never bother them again. (Note that Jason and Eve never found out Leibniz was a woman).
Off-screen, Leibniz returns to pick up Roddy and Elfie. Leibniz tells Jason and Eve that if they couldn’t find a way to live in normal space, he will tell them they were both dead. After Leibniz leaves Jason, Eve, and Fred head off on Sophia-J1 to keep normal space safe and find a way to live in normal space to live with their children.
Eve makes her debut as an original character in the Blaster Master novelization. She first appears in the deep pit that Jason jumps down while chasing after his frog, Fred. She accompanies him throughout the first part of the quest, but ends up being captured by the Plutonium Boss. Eve gives him the Gun, shows him how to pilot the Sophia 3rd, and generally educates him about the Plutonium Boss's plans.
Eve is the closest English equivalent to her true name, which is Yvtrkijz. Hailing from another planet, known as Signar-el, Eve has a poor grasp of English and its linguistic subtleties, as seen with her struggle in understanding various slang phrases. Well-trained by her father, a leading "astroscientist," she is the youngest winner of the Red Nova Science award for her theories on intergalactic life forms. Her studies in this field led to her discovery of Earth. It was here that the Plutonium Boss made itself known; listening in on her transmissions to Signar-el, it realized it had found a new source of plutonium, and fried Signar-el in a catastrophic flash of nuclear power. Eve, knowing that she had inadvertently led the Plutonium Boss to another defenseless planet, followed it to Earth and had planned to take it on herself with Sophia 3rd, when Alex and Jason showed up.
Eve is a serious, straight-forward person who expects others to be observant to their surroundings to catch on quick. She's bluntly honest, and absolutely driven to defeat the Plutonium Boss. Physically, she has long red hair and freckles, appearing like a typical American teenager.
Eve is the wife of Jason and mother of Roddy and Elfie. She does not make a physical appearance here, only a spiritual appearance, having died of an unknown illness 5 years before the events of the game. After Elfie is kidnapped by Kaiser, Eve replaces her as Roddy's spotter. When Kaiser is defeated, Eve's spirit ascends into the sky, proclaiming that she can finally be with Jason, implying that her spirit had been on Earth since her death.
- Eve does not have an official surname. However, since Blaster Master Zero indicates that her parents are Kane and Jennifer Gardner, her full name is presumably Eve Gardner.
- Eve is implied to be poor at cooking. During a conversation with Jason regarding the Gaia System's creation, she describes the preceding accident as "just like when I mess up a recipe in the kitchen!", to Jason's (internal) consternation.
- Even before Blaster Master Zero 2, this is implied via the official artwork made to celebrate 100,000 downloads of Blaster Master Zero, showcasing life with the Sophia crew. One panel shows Eve attempting to add a box of radioactive material (which incidentally looks like the one that mutates Fred in the original Blaster Master) to a pot, but is stopped by a VERY panicky Jason.
