OverviewEdit

After learning that Johnny Gat may very well still be alive, The Protagonist is determined to rescue their best friend. They're put into a two-dimensional side scroller where they help Johnny save his former lover Aisha, defeating former enforcers Warren Williams of the Vice Kings and Jyunichi of the Ronin. The Protagonist then takes control of a Mech suit and rescues Johnny from Zinyak's mothership.

Following his rescue, Johnny recalls his disappearance during the events of Saints Row: The Third aboard Phillipe Loren's Gawalek A36.

As The Protagonist gets ready to enter Johnny's simulation, Matt Miller remarks to Kinzie Kensington that the crew needs to be made aware of the possible repercussions of saving Johnny. Miller tells The Protagonist that saving Gat is a terrible idea which sends them into a rage, and a fight ensues among the crew. After Kinzie explains that rescuing Johnny may alert Zinyak to their position, The Protagonist may doom the last chance they have at survival. After calming down, The Protagonist preps to enter the simulation, where Pierce asks The Protagonist to guess what Johnny's nightmare might be where they guess it could be either a shooting gallery or a Freckle Bitch's.

The Protagonist is inserted into a 2D side-scroller game called "Saints of Rage" where the objective is to save Aisha. The game starts with Warren Williams abducting Aisha. The Protagonist soon finds Johnny within the side-scroller, where he is unaware that it is merely a simulation when they remind him that Aisha has been dead for several years. As they progress through 2D Stilwater, both The Protagonist and Gat have to fight the Vice Kings. They soon arrive at Kingdom Come Records and take the elevator up to confront Williams.

Realizing Aisha wasn't at Kingdom Come Records, Johnny and The Protagonist head towards Aisha's house, battling members of Ronin on their way. As The Protagonist and Johnny enter Aisha's house, Jyunichi decapitates Aisha and Johnny mourns her death once again. The Protagonist then asks Kinzie if she is able to reset the simulation which she obliges. The Protagonist takes the opportunity to catch Jyunichi off guard and rescue Aisha and usher her out. The Protagonist, with the assistance of Johnny Gat, then has to battle Jyunichi in two fights where in the latter, gains superpowers. At the conclusion of the game, Roddy Piper narrates the ending, concluding Johnny's epiphany and thanks the player for playing Saints of Rage.

Kinzie then cuts the connection and brings The Protagonist's mind back to save Johnny in the real world. The Protagonist heads out to Zinyak's ship with the Mech Suit on (which Keith remarks to The Protagonist again that it is power armor). The Protagonist explores the ship looking for Johnny's pod but finds that he has broken out of it. The Protagonist spots a trail of dead aliens, which he assumes leads to Johnny. Kinzie attempts to cause a diversion by asking The Protagonist to draw the bulk of their forces towards them by killing an entire room of Zin, Murderbots and Marauders.

When The Protagonist realizes they are closing in on Johnny, they exit the suit to find Gat on foot. Another trail of dead Zin soldiers leads The Protagonist to a room full of dead Zin. An alien wearing a familiar set of glasses is impaled with a Bowie knife, Johnny then puts his sunglasses back on and and reacquaints with The Protagonist. The Protagonist asks for an explanation to his disappearance 5 years prior, to which Johnny recounts his fight with various Morningstar gang members on board Loren's plane. During the fight with Loren and his men, Johnny was abducted by Zinyak after witnessing his fighting prowess. Johnny explains that Zinyak had abducted him several years prior to his invasion fearing that Johnny alone could single-handedly stop his entire invasion if left on Earth.

RewardsEdit

  • Dash Shield unlocked
  • Death From Above unlocked
  • Crewmate - Johnny Gat unlocked
  • Homie - Johnny Gat unlocked


TriviaEdit

  • This mission marks the return of long-time Saint, Johnny Gat. This is his first physical appearance since the beginning of Saints Row: The Third.[3]
  • The title of Johnny's game simulation, Saints of Rage, is a reference to the game Streets of Rage.
  • At the start of the game simulation, Warren punches Aisha in the stomach, then heaves her over his shoulder to carry her away; this is a reference to the initial scene in the Double Dragon arcade game.
  • During Gat's flashback, Phillipe Loren was using a SWAT SMG, which features a suppressor, but is making the sound of an unsuppressed weapon, as the gunfire is heard over the intercom in Saints Row: The Third.[3]
  • The 2D Sidescroller is actually a set of camera tricks and post processing effects. The map and three stages cannot be accessed without modding, but the entire map is all in 3D.
  • Upon completion of this mission, Murderbots now spawn at Notoriety level 4 and 5, Marauders spawn at level 3 to 5, and Zin in Destructor tanks also attack at Notoriety level 5.
  • After completing the mission, Zinyak's texts around the city change drastically, due to the recent events. Some of them include: "MURDERER MURDERER", "The Zin have Families too", "Simulation REBOOT imminent", "Reboot is DEATH", "Are you feeling okay?".
  • When joining a Co-op game after already completing "Gat Time, Fun Time", but the host hasn't, Johnny wears his Super Homie outfit in the final cutscene on the plane.
    • This also happens using the unlockitall cheat in both Solo and Co-op.
  • The subtitles and mission scripts for this mission refer to the "Saints of Rage" section as "M15 1", and the Zin mothership section as "M15 3". There is no "M15 2", and the game otherwise treats both sections as the same mission.

TranscriptEdit

PrologueEdit

The Protagonist - Female 1: "Do you have a lock on Johnny, yet?"
The Protagonist - Female 2: "You know where they're keeping Johnny?"
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Have you found Johnny's body yet?"
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Kinzie, where are we on finding Gat?"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "So have you found Gat?"
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Kinzie, did you find Johnny?"
Nolan North: "Kinzie, where are we on finding Gat?"
Phone Call: "It's not been easy. He's being kept off the grid. It's weird; almost like he's under extra security or something."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Can you break in?"
The Protagonist - Female 2: "You can still find him though, right?"
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Buy you still break into his mind, right?"
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Can you get me in?"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "But you can get me in?"
The Protagonist - Male 3: "You can still crack it though, right?"
Nolan North: "Can you get me in?"
Phone Call: "Of course I can. Get back to the ship."
— Pre-mission phone call

The Protagonist: "It feels weird not being in a shitty sports bar."
Pierce: "We could always name the ship the Broken Shillelagh."
Kinzie: "Not funny."
The Protagonist: "Kinzie, relax."
Kinzie: "Doing my best."
The Protagonist: "Look, if you're worried about me going brain dead I figure it's part of the de-"
Matt: "You have to say something..."
The Protagonist: "What aren't you telling me."
Kinzie: "Thanks Matt."
The Protagonist: "Kinzie..."
Matt: "It's not you she's worried about, it's everyone else."
Asha: "This is gonna get real exciting?"
Kinzie: "It doesn't matter."
Pierce: "I have a feeling we're about to disagree."
Matt: "Saving Gat is a terrible idea."
King: "The fuck's gotten into you!"
Asha: "You're out of line!"
Pierce: "The boss doesn't answer to you, honey."
Pierce: "Bitch, you're lucky we're standing in front of Keith David or I'll-"
Kinzie: "STOP IT!"
Kinzie: "He's right, ok?! It's a terrible idea. In order to save Johnny we have to tap directly from our ship into his mind, and that means Zinyak's going to know exactly where we are."
Kinzie: "You're asking Matt and I to paint a target on humanity's last chance so that you can go rescue someone we've never even met. And what's even stupider is that we're going along with it!"
Kinzie: "That guy you just beat the shit out of is risking everything to save your friend, and you wanna know why? Because we can't save ours anymore."
Kinzie: "Oleg is dead. Viola is dead. Earth is dead. So how about you stop being a fucking asshole and say, "Thank you for giving us the hope you'll never have.""
The Protagonist: "I'm sorry."
Matt: "Yeah, well...you coulda killed me back in Steelport but you let me go. I can forgive a few punches."
Kinzie: "Ok then. Get in the chair."
Pierce: "Hey Boss, whatchu think Gat's mind is like?"
The Protagonist: "No idea, but if I had to bet I'd say either a shooting gallery or a Freckle Bitches."

The Protagonist - Female 3: "They've kind of been on the offensive the whole time, Kinzie."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "They weren't on the offensive before?"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "They've been on the offensive the whole time."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "I thought they made that clear when they killed everyone."
Nolan North: "They weren't on the offensive before?"
Kinzie: "Zinyak's not dumb. I doubt we've made a single move so far without him knowing about it."
Kinzie: "I don't think we would've made it this far if Zinyak didn't think he could handle us."

The Protagonist - Female 2: "You're not really the glass half full type are you?"
The Protagonist - Female 3: "I'm not scared of Zinyak."

The Protagonist - Female 3: "Oh yeah."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Worked before. I see no reason to switch it up now."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Hell yeah I did..."

Nolan North: "The pod's empty. Same as the others."
Kinzie: "Do you think he'll be okay?"
The Protagonist - Female 1: "We're talking about Johnny fucking Gat, not Matt Miller."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "He's probably already racking up a body count... besides, if Matthew Miller can survive..."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Matt did it, it can't be that hard..."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Johnny can handle himself. Hell, if Matt Miller can survive..."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Listen, if Matt Miller can survive being by himself, Johnny's not having any problems..."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "This isn't a Matt Miller situation, Johnny knows how to handle himself."
Nolan North: "Johnny can handle himself. Hell, if Matt Miller can survive..."
Matt Miller: "Hey! I'll have you know... OW! Kinzie, why did you--?"

— After entering another hallway

All soldiers to Processing Tunnel 14 immediately! Teach this insolent prisoner some manners, would you?
— Zinyak, Before entering the massive pod room

Kinzie: "Looks like you're headed pretty deep into the base. Where you at?"
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Another pod room.... Jesus there must be thousands on this ship..."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "More pods... Jesus, how many people does Zinyak have captured here..."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Not sure... it looks like another pod room."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Another one of those red spinny rooms."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Hard to say, it's another room with pods..."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Don't know... I can't keep all these pod room straight..."
Nolan North: "Another one of those red spinny rooms."
— After entering the pod room
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Can you imagine how many people are being tortured by Zinyak right now?"
The Protagonist - Female 2: "Can you imagine how many alien races are in those pods?"
The Protagonist - Female 3: "God... I wonder if any of our other friends are stuck in these things and we don't even know it."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "I still can't get over how many people there must be in those."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "You gotta wonder who all is locked up in those pods..."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "You can't help but wonder how many simulations Zinyak is running..."
Nolan North: "I still can't get over how many people there must be in those."
Kinzie: "I know what you mean. I've seen countless tunnels full of those things."
The Protagonist: "That's a lot of fucking people, Kinzie."
Kinzie: "And we take down Zinyak and the rest of the Zin Empire, they'll all be saved."
The Protagonist: "Right on."
Kinzie: "Not that they'll have a home to go back to or anything."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "You gotta work on your pep talk, Kinzie."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "They won't need a home. They'll have freedom."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Careful Kinzie, you were almost an optomist.[sic] "
The Protagonist - Male 1: "You know, for a second there, Kinzie, you were almost an optimist."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Doesn't matter. They'll be free."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "No, but they'll be alive... and that's all that matters."
Nolan North: "For a second there, Kinzie, you were almost an optimist."
— Soon after the previous dialogue
Immediate backup to Processing Tunnel 16! I'm very disappointed in you all. Surely, the might of the Zin Empire can stop one man, hmm?
— Zinyak, Before leaving the massive pod room

The Protagonist - Female 1: "Johnny's keeping busy."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "Oh Johnny... you scamp..."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Someone needs a nap."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Seems Zinyak's getting a little twist in his shorts."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Sounds like Zinyak's having a rough day at the office..."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Looks like Johnny is giving Zinyak hell..."
Nolan North: "Seems Zinyak's getting a little twist in his shorts."
Kinzie: "Irritating overlords is definitely something we Saints are good at."
— In response to Zinyak's frustration
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Not gonna lie, I thought a giant robot running through the halls would have gotten a bigger reaction."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "Do they not notice the robot killing everyone?"
The Protagonist - Female 3: "I'm just saying, if a giant robot came through my ship... I'd try to kill it, not run like a bitch..."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Hey! Why aren't these Zin paying more attention to the robot stomping through their hallway?"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "You'd think these guys would react to being killed by a giant fucking robot..."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Where do these guys think they're running to?"
Nolan North: "Why aren't these Zin paying more attention to the robot stomping through their hallway?"
Kinzie: "Maybe there's a giant lizard destroying buildings in another hallway."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "A girl can dream..."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "If only..."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Still wouldn't run like a bitch."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Don't toy with me."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Oooooh...."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Don't a guy's hopes up, Kinzie..."
Nolan North: "Don't you toy with me."
— After seeing a group of Zin running

Zinyak: "Special Prisoner #2 has been isolated! All soldiers to Processing Chamber 9 now! Good job, everyone!"
The Protagonist: "Shit. Where's Processing Chamber 9?"
Kinzie: "Just because I can see the layout of the ship doesn't mean I know what the rooms are called?"
— After entering the final room

The Protagonist - Female 1: "I think I'm getting clo- oh fuck me..."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "How do I get through the door, Kinzie?"
The Protagonist - Female 3: "What now?"
The Protagonist - Male 1: "I... fuck, I don't know where I'm at... Shit! Something on the door changed. What's that mean?"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Damn it, what's that!"
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Kinzie, what can you do about this?"
Nolan North: "I... fuck, I don't know where I'm at, shit! Something on the door changed. What's that mean?"
Kinzie: "Let me see... oh. Looks like they activated a force field."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "How'd he know I'm here?"
The Protagonist - Female 2: "Of course they did, they're trying to keep me from getting to Johnny."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Great..."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Trying to stop me, huh, Zinyak?"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "Zinyak think that will stop me?"
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Zinyak thinks a little forcefield will stop me?"
Nolan North: "Trying to stop me, huh, Zinyak?"
Kinzie: "It's probably to contain Johnny. Give me a minute to figure something out."
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Fuck it, we should just shoot up the room..."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "What if I blow up the room? Something has to be powering it, right?"
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Might as well shoot everything in the room and hope I hit the generator."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Fuck that! I'm destroying everything in this goddamnn room!"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "No time, I'm tearing this room apart..."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "Can't we just tear apart the room to find the generator?"
Nolan North: "Fuck that! I'm destroying everything in this goddamnn room!"
— Shield has been activated
Kinzie: "Oh. Yeah. Do that! Draw their attention!"
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Wait, seriously?"
The Protagonist - Female 2: "No problem..."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Really?"
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Kinzie, dammit, I... Oh okay. Good."
The Protagonist - Male 2: "With pleasure..."
The Protagonist - Male 3: "I can't believe you went for that."
Nolan North: "Kinzie, dammit, I just... oh okay. Good."
— In response to The Protagonist's choice
The Protagonist - Female 1: "Let's have a little fun..."
The Protagonist - Female 2: "Let's play..."
The Protagonist - Female 3: "Johnny... I'm coming for you."
The Protagonist - Male 1: "Here I come, Johnny!"
The Protagonist - Male 2: "I'm coming Johnny!"
Nolan North: "Here I come, Johnny!"
— Soon after the previous dialogue

Kinzie: "Take out everything! Get them to come to you!"
Kinzie: "There are more coming. Keep at it!"
— After killing various enemies

That did it! The shield is down, now go get Johnny.
— Kinzie, All enemies killed


The Protagonist: "Fuck. Yes."
The Protagonist: "Johnny... what the hell happened?"
Gat: "So I'm in the plane doing my thing..."
Shaundi: "Johnny we're about to jump!"
Gat: "Right on, I'll see you in Stilwa-"
Zinyak: "Bravo."
Zinyak: "It would seem your reputation doesn't do you justice."
King: "Earth's most puissant warrior?"
Gat: "That's what he called me."
Keith: "You're tellin' me he abducted you years before his invasion because he thought you single handedly could stop him."
Gat: "Yeah."
The Protagonist: "That's so fucking awesome."
Asha: "You realize that means Zinyak's more afraid of him than you, right?"
The Protagonist: "Shit."
Pierce: "Johnny, go back to the part about the meat shield."
Gat: "Guys, don't take this the wrong way...but I've spent years living in the past. I'm ready for the future."
Kinzie: "Good. Because if we're going to pull off King's plan, we're going to need all the help we can get."
