"Never mind, never mind." Elder Hargo looked around. "Oh, pretty fish. Are we in an aquarium?"

"Apparently this is the lost City of the Ancients. We've gathered to do battle."

"Ah, you don't say. How exciting. Are you a warrior?"

"I'm a doctor, and I'd like to get a move on. I have a house call booked at six."

"I used to know a doctor," said Elder Hargo dreamily. "His name was Gast. Doesn't that sound a bit like ghost? He came to Cosmo Canyon to study planet life. He was interested in the Ancients. Are you interested in the Ancients?"

"Not particularly."

"I collect legends of the Ancients. I study their ways."

"Then you must be fascinated to be here."

"Why, where are we? Oh, look, a fish. Are we in an aquarium?"

"Yes," said the doctor, opening his bag.

"I visited an aquarium once. No, not an aquarium. I went to the sea-side. You can see star fish in the rock pools, did you know that?"

"Really?" said the doctor, pulling the wrapper off a sterile hypodermic and affixing it to a syringe.

"Must we fight?" asked the old man querously. "I don't like fighting. I don't know how to fight. Even when I was a lad I didn't enjoy the roughhousing. I like to sit around the Candle, counting the stars and telling stories."

"And you soon will again," said the doctor, as he drew fluid into the syringe from a small glass vial.

"I hope that's homeopathic," said Elder Hargo. "My body is a temple."

"Tell me about the Ancients." The doctor peered over his glasses to check the dose.

"They wandered the Planet, cultivating life to enhance the lifestream. They were constantly on the move to wherever they were needed. It was a meaningful existence, but a tiring one. When they died, they became one with the Planet, and at last they were allowed to rest."

"And now it's time for you to rest, my friend," said the doctor gently, as he slid the needle under Hargo's skin with such skill that Hargo didn't even feel the pinch. He injected just enough nembutal into the old man's veins to ensure he would remain unconscious for at least twelve hours. Elder Hargo's eyes began to flutter. The doctor helped him to a bed and made him comfortable. Within moments, Hargo was fast asleep, dreaming of stars and starfish.
...And then The Doctor wakes up from this dream, finding himself still stuck inside the fish in a womb-like state of sensory numbness.

Elder Hargo had not used this power against The Gi as, at the time, he was not yet 100% confident in his abilities. How do you know he did not use this power to aid the lifestream in its success during Meteorfall? He had, and without his help, it may not have gone so smoothly! Furthermore, within the Forgotten City he is empowered by the close presence of the spirit of the Ancients.

Is this before or after he combines all his powers into one and turns into captain planet?

That 'it was all just a dream' trope is getting a bit tired, isn't it?

Anyway, good to know Aerith had a back-up in Elder Hargo.

Such a trope that I regularly wake up from dreams I think are reality . I understand how The Doctor must feel. Except I'm not stuck inside a mystic fish with no way of escape, of course.

Let the record show that LicoriceAllsorts of Team Chocobo secedes to Elder Hargo's greatness!

You're in a dream right now, BforBrigitta, a dream you're mistaking for reality: a dream in which the doddery Elder Hargo has mysteriously acquired improbable magical powers; a dream in which our good Doctor is only dreaming of victory; a dream in which you dream that only in his dreams can he win. Wake up! Open your eyes! Acknowledge the superiority of Team Chocobo's candidate!

I think it is you who is dreaming that we're dreaming that Elder Hargo is dreaming of his victory. Conversely, it is The Doctor that is hallucinating under the influence of the mystic fish and its sensory depriving chasms.

Before. This is the prequel, babe

Nah, you're just dreaming that I'm dreaming that you're dreaming. And in this dream of yours, I'm dreaming that you're dreaming that I'm dreaming that you're dreaming. Elder Hargo's right there with us in your dream because myths and dreams are his natural habitat, unlike the good Doctor, who is a practical man of science, and knows that dreams are the consequences of eating too much cheese before bedtime.

It sounds like you have all been tripping with these posts as of late. Luckily I know a man who can help though, he's cool he's calm and he loves himself a white coat.
It's our main man the doctor curing all your delusions that the elder is gonna win this fight.

Right, so: Elder Hargo, doddery old dear, few bricks short of a load, is a bit forgetful in his old age, comes to this fight armed with some fairy stories and a replica weapon from the Tiger Lily Shop - versus - the good Doctor of Mideel, man of science, in his prime, armed with hypodermics, scalpels, syringes, bone saws, speculum and a full knowledge of human anatomy.

Look, even if we took away all their other attributes and it came down to a good old fashioned fist fight, the Doctor is inevitably going to win because he's young and stronger. Sure, Hargo might have been quite the bar-room brawler in his prime (though I doubt it), but those days are gone. Long, long gone. He's probably got osteoporosis.

Elder Harge may be of old age but what are we expecting of the Scientist at that stage? I don’t want a doctor (yes the ONLY doctor) performing surgery on me because he refuses to retire but he can’t remember where my spleen is.

I thought the purpose of this battle was who would win in a fight? not who's gonna need a bedpan first.

Luckily the doctor isn't old yet... but even if he were, he's still got better weapons than Hargo, and if taking Hargo's spleen out is the only way to win - well, you don't get through medical school by being squeamish.

Then why have you been nitpicking Hargo’s age this whole time? Pfft, ageist.

Because he's old as fuck which means his reaction speed is slower, his joints don't work as they used to and Alzheimer's is a very strong possibility. Whereas our doctor is younger and can take advantage of the old coots ailments to win in any sort of battle
