    It's not an uncommon thing but it's very rare when you see that ever heroes can lose and even die.

    I can't say I was completely suprised I kinda saw it coming it was really the how I didn't know. This is another one of my favorate episodes because this was when the show was taking an even darker and unfun turn. It's true that this episode might not have the same impact now depending on how far you've gotten on the series after this episode, it's one of those ones where you sort of had to of been there when it happened. This wasn't just an episode it was an experence.



    But I remember first time seeing it litterally made my heart just sink. I liked the fact that they homaged "Mortal Kombat" they had the music and the character that Enzo picked was an homage to the Scorpion character, only disapointment was we never really got to see him utilizes some of Scorpion's ability's like that rope spear and retract power I always loved I wanted to see that. But oh, well the fight between the user character Satan and Enzo I thought was great, I loved how well chorigraphed it was. At first it was exciting because we then saw Enzo really kicking butt and I felt at that moment Enzo could win. But unfortunately the table turned and things were starting to look bleak, that's when I started to get really worried when it wound down to the final round. It felt as though Enzo still had potential to win but unfortunately the fates were not smiling at him. That moment when I saw Enzo have his right eye sliced, I couldn't help but feel shocked because that was something I didn't think was going to happen and it took a couple minutes to regester that in my mind . In a way it marked the end of both Andrala and Enzo's life of innocence.



    And of course I'll never forget that moment when Dot and the rest hear that Enzo lost the game and posibbly dead, there is a moment where there is just total silence for a minute and it felt like an eternity. But just hearing Dot scream "Enzo noooooo!" and seeing some tears in her eyes just clinched at my heart.



    The first casualty of war is innocence.moreless

    It's been nearly ten years since I first saw Reboot and this episode has been the one that I could always remember. The Mortal Kombat style was lost on me, but the User's character was still very scary. The shock of Enzo losing his eye stuck with me over the years very vividly.I could not believe that something like that could happen to my most beloved character. This episode certainly marked a turn in the tone of the show, from the relatively light tone in has in the first couple seasons to a more adult, darker one.



    This episode also shifts the focus from the plight of Mainframe to Enzo and AndrAIa's journies through the games and the other systems, which I found to be very interesting. This episode is certainly one of the highlights of the entire series.moreless
  • Saddening. We're fortunate Mainframe didn't end it here instead of "Crouching Binome, Hidden Virus"!

    "Enzo...no....NOOOOO!!!!"



    The saddening cry of Dot over Enzo will ring in your ears whenever you think of this episode, time and time again. Who knew Enzo would have a fate like this one? Then again, it's not surprising considering who he was up against.



    I, myself, wonder how the episode (and maybe even the series!) would've changed if AndrAIa and Frisket had to battle the User instead of Enzo.



    In my opinion, the episode would've been better if the title was changed. The title, basically, (somewhat) spoils most of the episode. People can tell that whoever enters the Game Cube, they will not succeed.



    Overall, though, this is a great episode and despite these minor discrepencies, it may cause a person tears or maybe even concerned at what happens (I know I was/did the first time I watched this episode). Remember this episode as one of the greatest in the series.moreless
