vampire clam You're fighting a vampire clam

This room is guarded by a vampire clam. Hard shell plus sharp teeth equals danger!

Hit Message(s):

It sahhhhks your blaaahhd. Ahhhhhwwwch. Oof! Eek!

It snaps its shell down on you, impaling your <ear> with its big sharp pointy teeth. Oof! Eek!

It transforms into a bat with a hard clamshell over it. It batters you with its clammy wings. Hey, have you ever had my clam-battered wings? Tasty. Ooh! Ouch!

It sinks its teeth into you and drains your sweet ichor, then smiles. Looks like it's as happy as itself. Ow! Argh!

Critical Hit Message:

It walks over and snaps down on your <neck> with its shell and teeth. Woah, clams got legs! Oof! Ow!

Miss Message(s):

It tries to sahhhk your blaaaahd, but you douse it in chowder.

It tries to bite you, but you tell it to clam up.

It transforms into a bat with a hard clamshell over it. Then it collapses to the ground. Stupid vampire clam.

It tries to drain your sweet ichor, but you won't let it get its icky fangs into you.

It's happy as a clam to bite you, but you're busy as a bee to avoid being bitten.

Fumble Message:

It flexes its mussels and prepares to pound you. Fortunately, the mussels get tired of hanging out with a vampire clam and decide to go do something else. (FUMBLE!)

Notes

References

  • The sentence "with its big sharp pointy teeth" might be a reference to the "killer rabbit" from Monty Python & the Holy Grail.
  • "Clams got legs" is possibly a reference to "The Story of Reuben Clamzo & His Strange Daughter in the Key of A," a rambling tall tale by Arlo Guthrie about giant clams with feet.
  • "Clams got legs" is more likely a reference to a character in the BC comic by Johnny Hart who was always trying to catch clams walking around.
  • "Looks like it's as happy as itself." is a reference to the phrase "Happy as a clam at high tide", which is often shortened to just "Happy as a clam".
  • Mussels are another type of aquatic life similar to clams. The fumble message uses them as a pun on "muscles".
