This is when King Grudnark tells the truth about the crystal and asks Max to save his daughter and Dinolantis in Dinolantis: The Lost Dinosaur Kingdom.
(Max goes to the throne room)
Max Taylor: How's he doing?
Double D: No good. Internal bleeding. There's nothing I can do.
Max Taylor: What a nightmare. And it's my fault I've brought him here.
Koji Kinamoto: Don't blame youself, he's been after that crystal since Iceland.
Max Taylor: The crystal. Koji, that's it. These crystals they some sort of healing energy. Let's do this...
King Grudnark: No, where is my daughter?
Max Taylor: She's...
King Grudnark: She has been chosen. Like her mother, before her.
Max Taylor: What?
Koichi Kimura: What are you talking about?
King Grudnark: In times of dangers, the crystal would choose a host. One of royal blood, to protect itself and it's people. It will accept no other.
Max Taylor: Wait, a minute, choose. So that thing is alive?
Captain America: We're not going to let you just die.
King Grudnark: In a way. The crystal thrives on the collective emotions of all who came before us. In return, it provides power. Longevity. Protection. As it grew, it developed a consciousness of its own. (coughs) In my arrogance, I sought to use it as a weapon of war. But its power proved too great to control. It overwhelmed us...and led to our destruction.
Max Taylor: So that's why you hid it beneath the city. To prevent history from repeating itself!
King Grudnark: And to prevent Kama from suffering the same fate as my beloved wife.
Max Taylor: What do you mean? What's going to happen to her?
Max Taylor: If she remains bonded to the crystal...she could be lost to it forever. The love of my daughter is all I have left. My burden would have become hers when the time was right...but now, it falls to you.
(He gives Max his pendant)
Max Taylor: Me?
King Grudnark: Return the crystal. Save Dinolantis. Save my daughter. (dies)
Max Taylor: I won't let things happen, once we Save Dinolantis, All of them can survive.
Double D: But how? Clayton and the bad guys got away with the crystal.
Davis Motomiya: We have to come up with the plan to save her and Dinolantis.
Max Taylor: I have an idea.
