<Name>'s nanobots quickly re-wire your opponent's brain to make him left-handed. Better attack quick before he figures out what happened and switches hands.

Remember how your mother always warned you to wear clean underwear, in case you were attacked by clothes-destroying nanobots? Well, your opponent's mother didn't, and now they're suffering from acute embarrassment.

(duration: 50 Adventures)

<Name>'s nanobots disassemble some of the local scenery to build more nanobots, bringing him up to X% charge. You should probably be careful not to fight anything near your commemorative plate collection.
<Name>'s nanobots disintegrate a nearby patch of dirt for materials to build more nanobots. Hey, wait a minute! The hole is filled with pirate treasure! Oh, it's gone. Oh well. At least <Name> is up to X% charge now.
<Name>'s nanobots break down some nearby rocks and dirt into their component atoms, and use them to build more nanobots. He is now X% charged, but watch out for the new hole in the ground.

Arena Messages

  • None - familiar has no weaknesses.

Notes

  • The Nanorhino delevels like a Barrrnacle of the same weight.
  • The Nanorhino starts out fully charged every day (as well as after ascending).
  • When the Nanorhino is fully charged, it has an animated icon exclusively in the character pane: Nanorhinoc.gif
  • When the Nanorhino is fully charged, it can be triggered to give 50 turns of a buff: Nanobrawny, Nanobrainy or Nanoballsy.
  • With at least one of the Nanorhino buffs active, you can use the skill Unleash Nanites to perform a special attack. There are two special attacks for each buff: one major (with 40 or more turns of the buff left), and one minor (with 39 or fewer turns). Unleashing Nanites removes the buff in all cases.
    • With Nanobrawny:
      • Major attack: Banishes the monster until rollover, consuming the current turn. You can only have one monster banished this way.
      • Minor attack: Does damage equal to (Buff turns * 10) and restores HP (roughly half of damage dealt).
    • With Nanobrainy:
      • Major attack: Turns your opponent into one of three Gray Goo monsters, dependent on current monster attack. Monster may be delevelled via any normal method, or "uplevelled" via the Dungeons of Doom potion which grants Strange Mental Acuity or Strength of Ten Ettins to modify their attack value. This allows a player to tune any monster to the desired Gray Goo type (within reason). These monsters appear to have higher stat gains than their stats normally allow. Gray Goo monsters & their reward stats do not appear to be affected by ML.
        • little blob of gray goo (36/40/45): Stats ~66. Occurs when current monster attack value is <30.
        • largish blob of gray goo (98/105/110): Stats ~155. Occurs when current monster attack value is 30-89.
        • enormous blob of gray goo (230/240/250): Stats ~272. Occurs when current monster attack value is >89. (Spading: Are stat gains from the Grey Goo monsters affected by volley/sombrero?)
      • Minor attack: Does damage equal to (Buff turns * 10) and restores MP (roughly half of damage dealt).
    • With Nanoballsy:
      • Major attack: "Yellow ray". Disintegrates the enemy, and causes all its (non-conditional) items to drop. Conditional items may drop as they normally would. You receive 150 adventures of Everything Looks Yellow.
      • Minor attack: Delevels enemy and restores HP and MP.
  • The Nanorhino recharges 2% after each combat, or 3% when equipped with the nanorhino credit card.
  • The "opponent's deepest fear" message has multiple possibilities as to what it can be; hat, fork and birdbath have all been seen.

History

  • The animated character pane icon for the charged Nanorhino was added November 3, 2012.

  • The name, "Nanorhino", is a play on National Novel Writing Month, most commonly shortened to "NaNoWriMo". NaNoWriMo is traditionally November, the month in which this familiar was released.
  • Many of the nanorhino's characteristics reference grey goo, hypothetical self-replicating nanobots that consume matter to create more nanobots.
  • The nanorhino credit card is a reference to the old joke about how to stop a rhino from charging.
  • The actions and behaviors of the nanorhino are very similar to the nanites from the book 'Prey' by Michael Crichton.
