Eldritch Tentacle You're fighting an Eldritch Tentacle

This is a slimy, twitching, shuddering tentacle poking through a rift in space-time.

Hit Message(s):

The tentacle grabs the waistband of your underwear and gives you a wedgie incomprehensible to the human mind. Argh! Argh!

The tentacle wraps around your throat and lovingly squeezes the breath out of you. Oof! Argh!

The tentacle slaps you upside the head. Ew, it's slimy! Ouch! Ouch!

The tentacle gently caresses your scalp and horrific telepathic messages invade your mind. Eek! Ooh! (spooky damage)

Critical Hit Message:

The tentacle wraps around your <nipple> and squeezes until it bursts like a blood-filled tick.

Miss Message(s):

The tentacle wraps around your throat, but it's too slimy to get a good grip on you.

The tentacle whips at your head, but misses.

The tentacle tries to grab at your clothes, but you slap it away angrily. This is a hentai-free zone!

The tentacle gently caresses your scalp and sends out a burst of horrible telepathic images, but you distract yourself with old commercial jingles and nursery rhymes..[sic]

Fumble Message:

The tentacle wraps around you but ties itself in a knot and can't even squeeze. (FUMBLE!)

Notes

  • Immune to Stuns, Staggers, automatic kills (Carbohydrate Cudgel, Handsome Devil, etc) and has a 50% resistance to Deleveling, plan accordingly.
  • Has a special form of damage reduction. A 50% reduction is applied to the base damage of any attack. If the remaining damage is no more than 50, then no further reduction is applied. Otherwise, the amount of damage done by a base damage of x (before the 50% reduction) is 50+floor((ceiling(0.5*x)-50)^0.5).
    • This reduction is not applied to bonus elemental damage.
  • If you have the passive skill Eldritch Intellect, you will see a random name appended to the battle message, e.g. "You're fighting an Eldritch Tentacle named <Shhhhhbrghbrghlblglbrghbrgh>". This also allows a fourth eldritch effluvium to drop.
  • Firing a flaregun while fighting an Eldritch Tentacle will say, after the normal use text, "Hopefully someone who can help the Kingdom saw that flare!", and increment your 'flares sent' counter for the event. The flaregun still counts if you lose, and also if you run away (free or otherwise). Also, if you can't remember how many you have used, go to The Council of Loathing and they will tell you.
  • Defeating 666 Eldritch Tentacles in a single ascension earns the Tentacle Tickler Trophy.
  • Since November 2, 2016, if you have Eldritch Intellect a message sometimes appears randomly at the start of a fight: You hear in your mind: "Give me your soul, mortal! Make way for Sssshhsssblllrrggghsssssggggrrgglsssshhssslblgl, the one who is coming after us, whose tentacle sandals we are not fit to tie." (frequency unknown, maybe 5-10% chance)
  • Fighting an Eldritch Tentacle via the scientist does not cost an adventure.
