This guy is the captain of the bugbear invasion force. They must choose the captain with an arm-wrestling match or something; it's certainly not a beauty contest. He's huge, pockmarked, grizzled, and his voice makes Tom Waits sound like Tiny Tim. He looks like your basic big, dumb, bruiser, but he has a penchant for monologuing, as any good super-villain must.
He extends his retractable claws and slashes you in the <arse>. Did you know bugbears have retractable claws? Ouch! Ooh! Eek! Ouch! Ugh! Ow! Eek!
He kicks you in the shins with his stubby little legs. Sure, he's incredibly muscular, but the legs are still stubby. Oof! Ow! Ugh! Ooh! Ouch! Ouch! Oof!
He grabs one of the chains hanging from the ceiling (why are there always chains?) and swings over to kick you in the <groin>.Oof! Oof! Ouch! Ouch! Argh! Ow! Oof!
He leaps onto one of the random high ledges in the room, and pile-drives down on top of you. Ouch! Argh! Oof! Ooh! Argh! Ooh! Argh!
He knocks you off of the catwalk into one of the seemingly bottomless pits on either side. You fall for a few minutes, then crash down onto the catwalk again. Must be some kind of teleportation portal down there.
He extends his retractable claws, but they retract again before he can slash you.
He leaps at you, but you jump away and grab one of the chains that are inexplicably hanging from the ceiling.
He swings at you with a beefy noodly arm (so kind of a ravioli arm, I guess), but you leap onto one of the inexplicable high ledges in here.
He tries to kick you, but he still has stubby little legs that can't connect.
He falls off the catwalk into one of the bottomless pits on either side. After a few minutes, he comes crashing down from the ceiling to land on the catwalk again. "I'm glad I had those teleportation ports installed," he says, relieved. (FUMBLE!)

You throw the Bugbear Captain off the catwalk, and your fight must have knocked the teleportation panels out of whack, because instead of landing back on the catwalk he just falls from ceiling to abyss over and over and over. You watch for a few minutes, mesmerized.
Then you search the giant room until you find a lever that says "Prism Extraction." When you pull it, the whole top of the ship opens like a Pez dispenser, leaving you standing on a ledge facing the prism with King Ralph inside it.

- This monster is a boss and cannot be copied or insta-killed by normal means.
- The Bugbear Captain has two phases of damage reduction:
- First, a percentage reduction is applied to all damage. This reduction is 30%.
- Second, a soft damage cap is applied. The soft cap is 400. If an attack would do more than 400 damage, then the soft cap reduces this to (D - 400)0.85 + 400 where D is the damage after percentage resistance.
- If you prefer a single formula, the actual damage The Bugbear Captain takes with a raw, unmodified damage of x is (.7*x-400)^.85+400.
- This monster cannot be copied.
