erudite gremlin You're fighting an erudite gremlin

This gremlin appears to have gone through some sort of genetic mutation that dramatically increased its intelligence. Sadly, the mutation did nothing for its looks -- it's still a slimy, mottled-green thing with a mouthful of fangs. It looks up at you, croaks "I...wanna...." and then begins speaking in a perfectly enunciated, mellifluous baritone. "I want to talk about what's going on in this junkyard," it says. "It seems that you are intent on engaging in some sort of altercation with me. While I am normally a pacifist, intellectual creature, I must confess that on some level I would really like to eviscerate, decapitate, and quite possibly defenestrate you."

Hit Message(s):

He tries to harm you with words, but when that doesn't work he resorts to sticks and stones, which work as advertised. Ugh! Eek!

His witty verbal barbs don't hurt you, but the serrated barbs on his claws certainly do. Ow! Argh! Argh! Ugh!

He formulates a working theory of transmutation of matter, and uses that information to chomp on your eye, head, and throat simultaneously. Ow! Ow! Eek! Oof!

He delivers a string of pithy, withering, witty, and expertly-crafted insults. Ow! Your feelings! Ow! Argh! Ow! Ooh!

Quest Identifying Message

He whips out a crescent wrench from somewhere, places it on your finger, and carefully calibrates how tightly he has to adjust it to make you scream bloody murder. Ooh! Eek! Oof! Ouch!

Miss Message(s):


He tries to you[sic] in the <solar plexus>, but misses.

After Combat

Using molybdenum magnet on the correct message

You hold out the molybdenum magnet and the wrench is wrenched (Ha! Ha ha!) out of the gremlin's hand. It looks at you glumly, then slinks back off into the junkyard.

  • A character almost exactly like this one appears in the movie Gremlins 2, and his first line is very similar to the above quote.
