This Comic's Cast:

The implication is that the Monk -- who remained nameless through the series, I will note -- teamed up with four fiends and eventually became Chaos. So, if that's the case, he defeated himself. Trippy.

The airship will have some use later. Trust me.

And in the last panel, the second story the Old Man tries to launch into is actually the plot of the second Final Fantasy game. Just figured I'd through that out there.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
