ancient ghost You're fighting a ancient ghost

You see a wisp of movement out of the corner of your eye. You turn toward it, and almost miss it because it is so small -- a ghost, tiny, pale, faded with eons.

You would almost feel sorry for it if it wasn't advancing on you with its tiny fists...

Hit Message(s):

It reminds you of a joke you told in third grade, and how nobody laughed. You cringe. Ugh!

It reminds you about a word you didn't know the definition of until an embarrassingly late age. God, you used it wrong so many times. Argh!

It reminds you about that time you didn't think of the perfect comeback until twenty minutes too late. And then it reminds you about the other FIVE HUNDRED FREAKING TIMES the exact same thing happened. Ooh!

Critical Hit Message:

It tells a long and embarrassing story from your past. It's not a big deal until you turn around and see all your friends and family in the audience. Oof!

Miss Message(s):

It reminds you about that time you didn't think of the perfect comeback until twenty minutes too late. "The French have a special word for that," you reply, "and they seem pretty on the ball."

It reminds you about a word you didn't know the definition of until an embarrassingly late age. You remind it that sticks and stones can break your bones, but words mean whatever you want them to mean, so shut up, ghost.

It reminds you of a terrible joke you told in third grade. "Hey," you reply, "I was funny even way back then!"

Fumble Message:

You realize that in the grand scheme of things, you have nothing to be ashamed of. (FUMBLE!)

References

  • The graphic for this ghost, as well as the Manuel factoid about "houses in which it is impossible to tell the difference between the various rooms and doors and stairways" are references to the classic Atari game Haunted House.
  • The French word in question is L'esprit de l'escalier.
  • The miss message about the "words mean whatever you want them to mean" is likely a reference to the ending of the MC Frontalot song Charisma Potion — that in itself is a reference to a Humpty Dumpty quote from Through the Looking Glass:
"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less."
