I will protect this mountain, and fight anyone who tries to hurt it!
I am the strongest Tengu and that’s why I guard the mountain!
I can see through your moves! You’ll have to get by my sword and shield to beat me!
I knew I would lose if I let you get too far away. That's why I had to end the fight as quickly as possible.
Vs. Self: Did you think I would be deceived by such trickery? A fake like you could never hope to beat me!
Vs. Reimu and Marisa: You do not wish to harm the mountain, so I’ll let you pass. Heed my warning though.
Vs. Sanae: I will be sure to halt any intruders to the shrine.
Vs. Soki, Trish, Firebrand, Vergil and Akuma: You have the power of a demon? I'd like to find out more, but as you are my enemy, I only have time to defeat you!
Vs. Dante: The maple leaf on my shield? No, I’m not Canadian. What is this Canadia anyway?
Vs. Arthur: Don’t waste your time throwing weapons when my shield can block. Face me head on!
Vs. Aya: You are quite a disgrace of a tengu.
Vs. Nitori: I’m sorry, Nitori. I can’t play Dai ShÅgi now.
Vs. Morrigan: If you're looking for a distraction, I'll be happy to fight you anytime you want. I only ask that you stop hurting humans in return.
Vs. Meiling: You guard the gates, while I guard the mountains. It's nice to clash with someone I have much in common with.
Vs. Ryu: I admire your dedication, warrior, but I'm afraid I can't let you pass without a fight.
Vs. Guile and Cammy: You're faster than you look, but it takes more than speed to penetrate my shield.
Vs. Asura, Sonson, Byakuren, Murasa and Ichirin: I'll be damned if I let the envoys of the buddhist faith get past me.
Vs. Batsu: Oh, don't be scared. I don't bite...but I will beat the leaves out of you if you get past me uninvited.
Vs. Megaman, Tron, Bass, Zero, Roll, Jin, Spencer, Nick and Dr. Wily: This looks like someone a certain Kappa would be interested in.
Vs. M. Bison and Wesker: Losing to such vile humans as yourself would only shame my race.
Vs. Frank West: At first, I despised you, because you remind me of that cur Aya, but you're quite interesting.
Vs. Gene: Even if your arm is blessed by the gods, I shall not fall!
Vs. BB Hood: As you can see, your trinkets are useless against THIS wolf. Now go away!
Vs. Jon Talbain and Kagerou: There is some affinity between the two of us, but I'm sorry. I can't let you go further.
Vs. Amaterasu: Wow, I've never seen such a big and annoying flea. It must be a burden for you.
Vs. Yuugi: Not even the oni shall pass me.
Vs. Tessa: No, you can't inspect this sacred mountain, trespasser.
Vs. Satori: My mind is always set. No one enters without a fight.
Vs. Medicine: Even if I'm poisoned, I won't let you pass!
Vs. Anakaris: Is a foreign kingdom invading youkai mountain?
Vs. Amingo: I'll even keep the desert at bay!
Vs. Nue: I'll face my fears head on, if that's what it takes to protect the mountain!
Vs. Kogasa: No matter what surprised come my way, I will not waver!
Vs. Hina: Are you sure you're scaring away the humans? There seem to be more making it this far.
Vs. Masamune: Even if you are the “One-Eyed Dragon”, I won’t let you pass without a fight!
Vs. Kasen: You can lecture me when you can get past me.
Vs. Dan: If only all my foes were as easy as you.
Vs. Seija: I will not budge, even if the world has gone awry!
Vs. Ken: Even the fires of your passion will not stop me!
Vs. Seiga: I’ll halt your ambition right here!
Vs. Nero: The size of your sword does not show its strength.
(Momiji returns to Youkai Mountain.)
Momiji: Now that Fafnir has been defeated, I can finally return to Youkai Mountain…..
(She gets confronted by Hydron and Hauzer.)
Hydron: Stand back, Tengu! You are in my way! Once I conquer this shrine and retrieve the powers from the Goddesses, Scion will conquer this realm!
Momiji: I will not forsake my duties! I shall defeat you!
Hydron: Ha! You are a fool if you think you can defeat me and Hauzer! You are good as dead!
Voice: Allow us to help!
(Momiji gets assisted by Leo and Tessa.)
Tessa: Wherever Evil may lurk, we will flush them out!
Leo: We’ve defeated you before and we’ll do it again! Are you ready, miss?Momiji: Yes. Lion, Witch….On my mark! Send them back to their realm!
