"Short in stature, short in speech, short in patience!"
- "Bard: Let's see here... Oh, you found "The Schemer"! Ol' Tinker takes his work seriously, so I wanted to keep things completely serious."
- This title as well as The Destroyer represents Tinker Knight's double nature. However, this music shows his panicking nature when faced to the unexpected, such as the protagonists passing all his traps and barging in his workshop without him noticing.
