- Regular combat messages:
- <name> smiles in a disturbing manner.
- <name> clashes its cymbals, begging for additional Meat. Creepily.
- Enthroned in the Crown of Thrones:
- <Name> flings a cymbal at <him>, hitting <him> for X damage, but leaving <him> glad that was the only thing the monkey flung.
- Bjornified in the Buddy Bjorn:
- <Name> frisbees one of his cymbals at your opponent -- it clangs off of their head with a pleasant musical tone, and X damage.
- With lucky Tam O'Shanter equipped:
- <name> winks at you with one bloodshot plastic eye. How a plastic eye can be bloodshot, you don't know, but it really creeps you out.
- With miniature gravy-covered maypole equipped:
- <name> bangs his cymbals and does an arrhythmic, jerky dance around the maypole. Same as it ever was.
- With wax lips equipped:
- <name> manages to look even creepier with his blood-red wax lips. shudder.
- None - familiar has no weaknesses.
- Formerly available in the Mr. Store for 2 Mr. Accessories. It was replaced there on October 6, 2006 with the functionally identical Nervous Tick.
- "Clang, clang, clang went the monkey" may be a reference to "The Trolley Song", written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane and popularized by Judy Garland in the movie Meet Me In St. Louis. The song's refrain begins with "Clang, clang, clang went the trolley".
- Also, "A wink and a smile" is probably a reference to a song of the same name with music by Marc Shaiman and words by Ramsey McLean.
- "Same as it ever was" in the maypole message is a reference to a line from the Talking Heads song "Once in a Lifetime" and more specifically David Byrne's style of dancing while performing the song (as seen in their movie Stop Making Sense).
- This familiar is probably a reference to the movie Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders, which is most commonly known for being featured on Mystery Science Theater 3000. One part of the movie involves a demonic cymbal-playing monkey that causes someone or something to die every time it claps its cymbals. The Tam O'Shanter message probably also refers to this as well, as the monkey had red "bloodshot" plastic eyes.
