A.M.C. gremlin You're fighting an A.M.C. gremlin

This is an Ambulatory Motor Car gremlin. Basically, it's a slimy, foul-tempered, fanged, clawed little bastard which has used spare parts in the junkyard to build itself a little car to drive. All it needs is a little funny hat, and it could go around pelting children with hard candy. As it is, the wheels just drastically increase this gremlin's clawing-and-maiming radius.

Hit Message(s):

It pulls up, slams on the brakes, and engulfs you in a choking cloud of dust and exhaust. Oof! Oof! Ouch! Eek!

It switches on its high-beams and blinds you. Don't you hate jerks that do that? Oof! Oof! Eek! Eek!

It opens its radiator and spits boiling hot water at you. Ow! Ooh! Ouch! Ouch! (hot damage)

It runs over you. You feel a little tired. Argh! Ugh! Oof! Eek!

It revs up its engine, gets the r.p.m.'s up to the redline, peels out, leaves a smoking patch of rubber on the asphalt, and drives right over you. The tire tracks really go with your outfit, though. Ugh! Argh! Eek! Oof! Argh! Ugh!

Miss Message(s):
