Before Cave Story[]

Ten years prior to the events of Cave Story, an army of robot soldiers was sent to the Island to claim the Demon Crown, a very dangerous artifact which bestows great powers upon the person who wears it. The robots specifically targeted Mimigas in their assault, killing countless masses of them without any notable provocation. During the conflict, Quote and a similar female combat robot named Curly Brace were constructed by an unknown party, and also sent to the island. Unlike the other robots sent there, Quote and Curly were ordered to destroy the Demon Crown rather than claim it for any owner. They arrived later than the other robots; by the time they reached the Island, much of it was in ruins. Death and carnage was everywhere, and most of the Mimiga race had already been exterminated.

By the time they found the Demon Crown, a human named Miakido had already claimed it, becoming the third being in history to do so. Quote and Curly fought Miakido, and managed to fatally wound him, but were both seriously damaged. For the next ten years, Quote laid incapacitated, dormant and undisturbed in a small cave, separated from Curly Brace.

Present Cave Story[]

At the start of the game, Quote finally awakens with complete amnesia: he has no memory of his purpose on the island, who he is, or where he is, or why he was there. He also possesses no weaponry of any kind. After stealing a weapon from a hermit, he shortly wanders into Mimiga Village, whose inhabitants are being systematically forced into a renewed conflict by the newest owner of the Demon Crown.

Weapons & Equipment[]

In the world of Cave Story, Quote needs Energy Crystals in order to level up his weapons. Energy Crystals comes in three different sizes: small, medium, and large.


Quote's upgraded version of his signature gun, the Polar Star. NOTE: this is a Lv. charging weapon. Unlike other weapons he wields, this charges as the trigger is held.

  • Lv. 1 is Polar Star's Lv. 3, a giant shot, with an exception, the shot is not limited by range.
  • Lv. 2 is a laser stream that is enough proof that the Spur is more powerful than the Polar Star.
  • Lv. 3 is a twin stream of lasers. If held long enough, the Spur can shoot a huge, short lasting laser. This is one of the most damaging attacks in Cave Story that Quote can do. Unlike the Polar Star, this weapon can pierce through enemies.


A sword with King's Soul.

  • Lv. 1 is basically a Longsword.
  • Lv. 2 is a Bigger Blade with less length.
  • Lv. 3 has a King-like appearance, and is one of Quote's most powerful tools on his disposal, having a very high Range value. This weapon can pierce.


A weapon that can go through walls.

  • Lv. 1 is simple Rotating Squares.
  • Lv. 2 Fires Red Fireballs in a sine wave motion, increased range.
  • Lv. 3 is like Lv. 2, but with a Blue Fireball, and even further range. It can pierce.

  • Lv. 1 shoots a super missile.
  • Lv. 2 shoots a GIANT super missile.
  • Lv. 3 shoots triple Lv. 1 super missiles.
