Look around.

Panel #1
You want to, but you don't. You see no reasoning as to why you should. The monster, the boss, the black king, is right in front of you. His eyes are even flashing. It's freaky. So, what would be the point?

You're ready to fight, but at the same time, you're terrified. What if this idiotic plan of your leader's backfires? Well, then again, if it did, the thing that would most likely occur is your very death. So, what's to lose?

You really hope you win, though. Ocean, the laughing idiot behind you, has been bragging about the prize. The big winning prize for all of us to claim and share and use and love. So, if that's the case, so be it. You'll fight for your life. You actually have no choice anymore.
