AC’s 2 Belt of Infinity Ep. 20 Heart of Darkness


Aquablade discovers that Vaur can remove the effects of the Belt of Infinity, so Aquablade destroys it because its only possible use is to "properly" merge Sala and Vaur. It is revealed that Sala removed his heart, so that Vaur cannot become Salavaur, however, Vaur still adsorbed Sala anyways (and returns to his normal form).

Aquablade and Vaur discover that the opposite of Vaur is Sala (that means that Vaur can change into Salavaur). With this knowledge, Vaur clones himself and move the new clone into a crystal ball that changes whoever touches to his or her opposite (the original Sala). Sala and Vaur battle for control of Salavaur (by absorption) and Vaur wins. Vaur then adsorbs the original Sala and becomes Salavaur (in the first form). Aquablade however is locked and can't move for the battle. Aquablade's army battles him, trying to defeat him. However they take too long to defeat him and when he fainted he gains more of the power of his heart, giving him seven new forms, and also restoring him from his fainting. He also boasts of his final god form that he will obtain when his heart power is fully activated. Flare Hawk is absolutely shocked by him having seven additional forms. Aquablade is freed as Salavaur technically fainted and his lock only lasted until he fainted. Aquablade reveals that he inspected the "useless" items Sala gave to him, then uses his guitar and transforms back into his sprite form and also gets his Rock On move upgraded to a HP recovery move, and uses his new move to revive his fallen allies.

His army fights off all eight of his forms. After each one is defeated the army and Salavaur is transported into a Darklight Portal and loses all status changes from non-item effects. After defeating Salavaur's eight form, his god form is ready, but Flare Hawk boasts victory as he was defeated before that happened. However he revives himself using Healing Light and turns into his final form.

Now in Xavic Islands, Aquablade, DVL, and Flare Hawk fight Salavaur in his final form. All but Aquablade get defeated by Salavaur and he is confused by the fact that Salavaur has Sala's brain as he thought he was Sala, and he corrects Aquablade by stating he was still only Vaur even though he absorbed his brain and memory. Aquablade is then put into the lock again so he could see him destroying the world. Jason reaches Aquablade's location and then calls out his massive army of spriters. They attack Salavaur with full force with maxed out X Attack/X Special Attack items, and after everyone attacked, Salavaur smashes them with Gavel of God, and takes out everyone without an Uber Form or other secondary form immediately. The remaining spriters change into the respective Uber Form or secondary form, to do more damage. They get heavily damaged from Gavel of God attack and then perform the team attacks to damage Salavaur further, and after this they get defeated by the same attack. Aquablade Warrior then attacks Salavaur with strategy, but fails to defeat him. He then uses Dark Abyss to turn the world into darkness.

Mario then attacks Salavaur. He manages to take his HP to zero but Salavaur fails to faint due to him being a god. Roboblade and Aquablade then goes into his heart to take him out. They succeed and Salavar is destroyed.

Description Edit

"If you watch this from start to finish, without skipping any bit of it, you can consider yourself a true fan of the AC's (or insane :P). Since this is not split into parts like it was originally, it might not be as well-liked as it was in the old days. Oh well, it is still the best episode I ever made of the AC's, and I hope there are people who feel the same and watch it all the way through. I know some of the battles against Salavaur's forms may seem pointless and tend to drag on, but I wanted it to give the feeling of a final battle in a video game. Each form of Salavaur required some sort of strategy to defeat, and each was unique, different, and hopefully memorable. As for the Heart of Darkness battle, like I have said many times now, it would've been much more climactic if Justice was treated like an actual character rather than simply Aquablade's girlfriend in the real world. People felt this ending was forced because she had left me around the time of Episode 16, and a lot of people knew about it. Therefore, it was sort of a given that their relationship would have to end in some way in the AC's as well. However, I had actually planned this ending from the beginning before I had even met Justice, and the original love interest character was going to be Kelly. Interesting fact, huh? Therefore, this ending was not forced, and the fact that Justice left me had no impact whatsoever on it. It did impact the final conversation scenes, but that's it.

"Also... I really hope there are some people out there who really understand the message I was trying to give during the final conversation between Aquablade and Jason. Rewatching this episode, and that scene in particular, is what convinced me in the end that I should post this series again. It is a symbol of the lessons I learned from my experiences during the making of this series. I was a very different person when I started this series, and I have grown up quite a bit. Even if you fail at something, or you work really hard at something only to be shot down in the end, you are still able to learn from it. If it wasn't for all the struggles, hardships, and poor choices I went through during my time here on YouTube, I definitely would not be the person I am today. As much as I regret being a complete idiot back in the day, I guess I would never have learned from it otherwise.

"All in all, please enjoy my single greatest work on YouTube thus far. My new series will easily be better than this, but I'll bet a lot of people will still end up liking the AC's better due to nostalgia (which is a bit disappointing, considering how much work is going into the new one compared to this). Oh, and don't forget, there is one last part: the Epilogue, which in my opinion is just as important as this episode.

"P.S. If you've read this entire description, and actually cared about what it said, then you are awesome."
