Weremoose You're fighting a Weremoose

This is a weremoose, one of the most terrifying and Canadian of all the members of the lycanthrope family, eh?

Hit Message(s):

He beats you aboot the <arm> and <shoulder> with grisly francophonic efficiency. Argh! Ow! Argh! Argh! Oof!

He pokes you in the <shoulder> with this big, fierce antlers. Ya hoser. Eek! Ouch! Ooh! Oof! Ooh!

He gets underneath you and bucks you into a wall. Eek! Ouch! Ooh! Ow! Eek!

You hit him on the head. Wait, no, he hit you on the head. What a naughty moose. Eek! Eek! Ooh! Eek! Ouch!

Critical Hit Message:

He points his snout -- er, snoot -- at the full moon and brays a blood-chilling bray, then charges at you and pins you to the wall with his antlers. Yeooowch! Ow! Ow! Ooh! Eek!

Miss Message(s):

He tries to poke you with his antlers, but trips and falls on his snout. Er, snoot.

He tries to stomp on you, but you dodge his heavy boots. Bouts? Never mind.

He tries to buck you into a wall, but since he's Canadian, his buck isn't as powerful as other monsters.

He tries to bite you with his big moose teeth, but you've heard that moose bites can be pretty nasty, so you dodge.

He tries to hit you on the head, but isn't naughty enough to pull it off.

Fumble Message:

He starts to attack again, but whatever moon controls his moosecanthropy changes phases and he turns into a human. He quickly covers himself with his hands and edges off sideways. (FUMBLE!)

Special Move(s):

He bites you on the <ear> with his huge moose teeth. You'd have preferred him to gently brush it with his huge moose stache. Ow! Oof! Oof!

References

  • The miss message about his buck being not as powerful is a reference to the fact that a Canadian dollar used always to be worth less than an American dollar.
  • The hit message about being hit on the head refers to a scene in the sitcom Fawlty Towers (in the episode "The Germans"), where Basil Fawlty (John Cleese) is hit on the head by a moose-head he attached poorly to the wall, which subsequently lands on waiter Manuel's head. This prompts the following exchange between Manuel and the senile Major Gowan:
    Manuel: "He hit me on the head!"
    Major: "No, you hit him on the head! You naughty moose!"
  • The critical miss message about covering himself with his hands and edging off sideways may refer to any number of cartoon shorts by Warner Bros. or other companies, in which characters suffering from sudden (partial) nudity would cover 'vulnerable' areas and slip off-screen.
  • The miss message with "moose bites can be pretty nasty" is a reference to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. During the opening credits, Swedish subtitles appear below most of the credits (after the first round of people are sacked), and they state "Mynd you, møøse bites Kan be pretti nasti..."
