This page contains all of Bord's paired base conversations.

Bord and Kris

First conversation

Kris: You are... Sir Bord, right? Or are you Sir Cord?
Bord: Hey, I'm Bord. Look properly before you talk next time!
(If Kris is male)
Kris: I see. Sorry. You two look alike, after all.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: I see. Sorry. You two look alike, after all...
Bord: Alike? Hey, gimme a break. I'm completely different from that dude. True, we're both mercenaries from Talys, and we're both woodcutters.
Kris: I see you talk alike, too.
Bord: ...Well, I guess. But we're totally different. For instance, err... That's right, our faces! I've got the more handsome face, doncha agree?
Kris: Handsome...?
Bord: Yeah, take a goood look at my face. He can't deny it, either.
Kris: ...?
Bord: Just remember Bord's the handsome one! Then you can't go wrong. Simple! So yeah, don't get us mixed up again.

Second conversation

Bord: That Cord can be a really reckless dude... A long time ago, back when we fought together, a nearby village was about to be ransacked by bandits or something. That time, he tried to save the village alone.
Kris: How noble of him.
Bord: But there were too many of them. There's no way he could've beat them alone. But he just dove right in without thinking. He's such a pain in the ass.
Kris: And what did you do, then?
Bord: Hm? Well, I could've just let him get himself killed, but... I'd probably have trouble sleeping at night, if I did that.
Kris: So you protected the village together with Cord.
Bord: Well, I couldn't just leave him. It's not like I had a choice. I can't abandon a comrade. You know that feeling, doncha?
Kris: Yes, I'd never abandon a comrade either.
Bord: Oh, so you do get it. I could get along with you. Too bad I can't say the same of Cord.

Third conversation

Bord: But y'see, that Cord is really an annoying dude... Even if I wanted to, I can't get rid of him. He's always been my pal, see.
(If Kris is male)
Kris: Somehow, you both recognize each other's worth.
(If Kris is female)
Kris: Tee hee. Somehow, you both recognize each other's worth.
Bord: Nonsense. You're kidding me, right? When we meet, we fight all the time. ...But, even that dude has got one good point. His sense of justice.
Kris: Sense of justice...?
Bord: That's right. He's got a real strong sense of duty. You know what I mean? If he sees somebody weak being bullied, he'll help them... That kinda courage. He's got that. Even this time, he volunteered at the first opportunity when he heard Prince Marth was in trouble. 'Cause he's like that, it makes me feel like tagging along too.
Kris: I see... So in the end, you really do recognize each other's worth.
Bord: N-nonsense. Were you even listening to me?

Bord and Cord

First conversation

Bord: Oh! There y'are, Cord.
Cord: What's it now, Bord?
Bord: Somebody mistook me for you, AGAIN!
Cord: Wha...! Who was it!? I'll take care of 'em. Tell me!!
Bord: Err... Huh, who was it again?
Cord: Hey! Gimme a break. Man... You're really slow. You're like my complete opposite.
Bord: What!? What about you? Hitting things without caring what happens. Faster doesn't mean better!
Cord: What...! ......Show it. Today, we're gonna prove who's the better one!
Bord: Yeah, bring it! Don't come cryin' to me later!
Cord: Heh, that's MY line, buddy. I'mma force you into an early retirement!
Marth: Did I just... hear something incredibly dangerous...?

Second conversation

Bord: Hahh, haah...
Cord: What's wrong? Outta breath already, Bord...?
Bord: Heh heh... Don't be crazy. Look at yourself first! Alright, time to drop... Here I come!
Cord: Me too... Have atcha!
Bord: One, two... yeah. Nine it is.
Cord: ...Alright. I got ten!
Bord: What! Show me.
Cord: Here ya go! Whaddya think?
Bord: Y-you sonuva...
Cord: Whaddya know? I win... this one.
Bord: Wahaha! Nonsense! Look at how you've cut these... More doesn't mean better, you dolt! Seriously, what are you gonna use this wood for?
Cord: Firewood man, firewood! Who cares about the shape if you're gonna burn 'em anyway? You're too naive!
Bord: What didya say!? The cut of the wood can make it easier or harder to burn! You're the naive one!
Cord: Gah... You just won't accept it, will ya.
Bord: Of course I won't.
Cord: Then... we'll settle our score in that forest over there!
Bord: Yeah! Don't worry. I'll pay my respects to your grave soon enough!
Marth: Oh dear, those two... They're doing just as I feared, aren't they?

Third conversation

Cord: Hiyaah, hyaah...
Bord: Did we... take our match too far?
Cord: What, you crying already?
Bord: Don't spout rubbish. Aren't you the one with the trembling voice?
Cord: Heh, shut up. I... chopped down the most trees! Victory is mine.
Bord: Nah...! Just look at this opening. It's my win, any way you slice it!
Cord: What!?
Bord: C'mon, don't tell me you're still denyin' it!?
Cord: Damn you...!
Marth: Wait, you two! Why are you fighting?
Cord: Oh, Prince Marth...
Marth: Did you two cut down all of... these trees by yourselves?
Cord: Yeah... That's right.
Marth: Ah, these trees... Bord cut these, right?
Bord: What, you can tell!?
Marth: Of course. It's a very clean, neat cut. There's no better material for crafting training weapons than this. ...That is what I've heard Jagen say many times. Let me express my gratitude. Thank you, Bord.
Bord: Ah, thanks.
Marth: Then, that mountain of wood must be Cord's.
Cord: Y-yeah.
Marth: Cord. Thanks to you, we've no lack of firewood. Your efforts mean that we've never had any shortage of cooked food or lighting. Thank you.
Cord: Uh, no biggie.
Marth: ...By the way, why were the two of you engaged in such a heated contest?
Cord: N-no, it's...
Bord: ...Cord. Just this time, let's call it a draw... No, this time... we're both winners!
Cord: Yeah, ain't that right!
