Battleship Halberd Interior
The level begins with the victorious Halberd leaving while a heavily damaged Great Fox crashes into the dark clouds. Meanwhile inside the Halberd Snake reveals himself from his cardboard box on board the Halberd (The box had previously been shown inside the ship). As he does so, he says his now famous line, "Kept you waiting, huh?"
After a section of the level, a hallway is shown, and Lucario and Meta Knight are seen rushing down it after they boarded the ship following the Glacial Peak. They go shooting past the cardboard box in the hall, but Lucario turns around and looks at the box, and senses Snake's good (blue) Aura through the box. When Lucario lifts the box up, Snake is astonished while an exclamation point appears over Snake's head and the familiar "discovered" sound from the Metal Gear series is heard. Snake readies himself in an attack position, as does Meta Knight. Lucario, however, shows Meta Knight that Snake's Aura is good, so he is not an enemy.
Lucario then turns to look over Meta Knight's shoulder, seeing a group of incoming Primid and sensing their evil (intense red) Aura, so the three advance to attack them.
Near the end of the level, the group comes to face dark versions of Peach and Zelda that were created from their caged trophies. After defeating the false versions, Peach and Zelda are freed from their cages and revived. Snake, however, motions for them to stay where they are. He leaves with Lucario and Meta Knight as the princesses exchange a knowing glance.
