Gnollish Gearhead You're fighting a Gnollish Gearhead

This is a Gnollish Gearhead. When he's not fixing up hot rods in the Degrassi Knoll garages, he's wandering around looking for a fight, such as the one he just found.

Hit Message(s):

He smacks you upside the <shoulder> with a giant gear. Ow! Eek!

He checks your muffler and changes your oil. Your oil... of PAIN! Oof! Ugh!

He throws a wrench in your works. Or a spanner, if you're British. Or "le wrench," if you're French. Ooh! Eek!

He pulls a sprocket from his pocket and smacks your arm out of it socket. Eek! Ugh!

He springs forward and smacks you with a wet sprocket. All you want is to ease the pain your[sic] <ankle>. Ouch! Ugh!

He hits you repeatedly with a monkey wrench. One in ten blows lands solidly. Ugh! Ow!

Critical Hit Message:

He pulls back a spring, sticks a gear into it, and lets it fly. You feel a sharp pain in your forehead and suddenly can't remember your dad. Ooh! Ooh!

Miss Message(s):

He gears up to smack you, but you get your arse in gear and motor away.

He tries to switch gears on you, but fails in mid-transmission.

He tries to throw a wrench in your works, but only succeeds in wrenching his back.

He pulls a sprocket from your pocket, but it glances off your locket.

He tries to smack you with a wet sprocket, but it doesn't work since you're not a toad.

He tries to hit you with his monkey wrench, but suffers an indecent accident before he can land it.

Fumble Message:

He gears up for one super-powerful smack, but seems to be stuck in second gear. Man, it hasn't been his day, his week, his month... even his year. (FUMBLE!)

  • The "wet sprocket" and "toad" miss message is a reference the Eric Idle monologue "Rock Notes", from Monty Python's Contractual Obligation Album, about a fictional band named Toad the Wet Sprocket (from which a real band took its name eventually).
  • The "one in ten" hit message is a repeated lyric in the song "Monkey Wrench" by The Foo Fighters.
  • The "indecent accident" miss message is another lyric in the Foo Fighters' "Monkey Wrench".
  • The fumble message refers to the theme to the TV show Friends, "I'll Be There For You" by The Rembrandts: "It's like you're always stuck in second gear / When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year".
