El Diablo You're fighting El Diablo

You ascend to the landing and stop, momentarily puzzled. You're all alone, as though you were the last living soul in the tower...WOOSH!

You dive out of the way just in time as something attacks you from behind, and you spin around to find a guitar hovering menacingly in the air. A Gibson Flying V four-string bass, to be precise.

Then the stench of sweat and brimstone registers in your brain, and realization *clicks* like Dirty Harry cocking his .44 -- this could only be El Diablo, the Devil's own bass! Not ready to leave this ol' green world and head into the white light, you don't dare attack it... but you're not gonna be able to put it off 'till el mañana.

Hit Message(s):

A deep bass note reverberates in your ears. It feels like fire coming out of your head. Oof! Ow! Oof! Ow! Ouch! Argh! Oof! Ugh! Eek! Ooh!

It clobbers you in the skull like a sort of reverse version of The Who. Ow! Ow! Oof! Eek! Ow! Ugh! Ow! Ow! Ouch! Oof!

It takes you down like a celebrity, and you soon find yourself on the slow boat to Hey Deez. Ooh! Ugh! Ugh! Ooh! Eek! Oof! Oof! Eek! Ugh! Ooh!

Miss Message(s):

It tries to you[sic] in the <elbow>, but misses.

String.gif
You leap at the fiendish guitar and wrap your mariachi G-string around its neck, wrestling it to the ground and strangling it to death. It evaporates in a flash of fire and greasy black smoke. Looks like its demon days are over, and that makes you feel good. Incredibly good.

Formerly occurred at The Sorceress' Tower (The Stairs). Can still be encountered via Wishing.

Notes

  • This monster cannot be copied.
  • This monster's combat weakness is the mariachi G-string.
  • Mañana is feminine, so it should be la mañana. However, "el mañana" is also used when referring to a distant future, implying that it will take you a while to attack the monster.
  • If you lose, you will receive a hint as to which item to use.
    • First hint: That's got to be the meanest guitar you've ever seen.
    • Second hint: Sure be nice if you could give it a taste of its own medicine.
    • Third hint: You could strangle it, but that'd be strange.
    • Fourth hint: Maybe instead of strangling it, you could lynch it. Or just string it up.
    • Fifth hint: Maybe what you need is a mariachi G-string from South of the Border.

References

  • The picture displayed is not a bass guitar but Gibson Flying V model 6-string.
  • The messages in this battle are references to various songs in the Gorillaz 2005 album Demon Days, namely:
    • Last Living Souls
    • Dirty Harry
    • O Green World
    • All Alone
    • White Light
    • Dare
    • Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head
    • El Manana
    • Feel Good Inc.
  • One of the hit messages also refers to two Gorillaz DVD releases, each of which documents a "phase" of their career. The DVDs are, naturally, Phase One: Celebrity Take Down and Phase Two: Slowboat to Hades.
  • The guitar itself is probably a reference to the Gorillaz bassist, Murdoc Niccals, a Satanist who uses a similar guitar, also named "El Diablo."
  • The message about The Who is a tip of the hat to Pete Townshend's habit of destroying his guitars.
