acid blob You're fighting an acid blob

This is a creature that appears to be made of quivering, acidic goo. It leaves little etch-marks in the floor as it slides toward you, with the intent to leave big etch-marks in you.

Hit Message(s):

It etches you in the <face>. Sketchy. Ugh! Ow! Ugh! Ow!

It slides over and dissolves your <bung>. Man, I hope that grows back. Ugh! Argh! Argh! Ow! Oof!

Critical Hit Message:

It envelops your head and eats away most of your scalp. Hey, at least you won't have dandruff anymore! Argh! Ow!

Miss Message(s):

It tries to etch you, but can't seem to connect. Sketchy.

It starts to dissolve you, but you quickly put on a yarmulke and braid your hair. No acidic goo for Hasidic Jews, after all.

Fumble Message:

It tries to steamroll over you, but manages only to etch "NO KILL I" in the floor with its acid. How confusing. (FUMBLE!)

  • This monster appears statistically equivalent to the lowercase B.

References

  • The attack messages "It etches you..." and "It tries to etch you...", each followed by "Sketchy", are a reference to the children's toy Etch-A-Sketch.
  • As with everything else that occurs in the Dungeons of Doom, this is a reference to the computer game NetHack.
  • "NO KILL I" is a reference to the Star Trek episode "The Devil in the Dark", in which a blob like alien called a Horta secretes acid to write the words "NO KILL I."
  • It is also a reference to the fact that you can be protected from monster attacks in NetHack if you engrave the word "ELBERETH" on the ground where you're standing.
