Combat Messages
  • The parrot will sometimes repeat the last thing you said in chat as its combat text.
  • Without being in chat:
    <name> squawks, "Awwrrk! Timmy's fallen down the well! *whistle*"
    <name> squawks, "Awwrrk! Your actions are morally reprehensible. *whistle*"
    <name> squawks, "Awwrrk! Don't forget DL-6! *whistle*"
    <name> sits on your shoulder, preening and otherwise unaware of what you're doing.
  • Enthroned in the Crown of Thrones:
    <name> becomes a blur of feathers, beak, and claws as it attacks her for 15-30 damage. Man, what a parrot trooper.
  • Bjornified in the Buddy Bjorn:
    <name> attacks your foe in much the same way you would, although with more wing-flapping. It's 15-30 damage worth of cute.
  • With lucky Tam O'Shanter equipped:
    <name> winks at you and squawks "Pieces of eight! Awwrk!"
  • With miniature gravy-covered maypole equipped:
    <name> flaps around the maypole once, and then perches on top of it and preens for a bit.
  • With wax lips equipped:
    <name> tries to whistle at you, but the wax lips make it rather difficult.

Arena Messages

  • When entered in a game of Hide and Seek:
    <name> is far too brightly-colored to be an effective hider.

Notes

  • Attempting to name the parrot "Polly" will result in it being named "Unoriginality." However, naming it "Polly" at Manage Familiar Names will not trigger the renaming of "Unoriginality."
  • Due to its ability to provide elemental resistance without using an equipment slot, the Parrot proves useful in Fernswarthy's Basement.
  • Starting at 1 pound, the Exotic Parrot provides +1 Hot resistance. Increasing the Exotic Parrot's weight by increments of 4 pounds provides +1 elemental resistance to Cold, then Spooky, Stench, Sleaze, and then Hot again.

The progression continues with no limit, aside from the number of familiar weight increasers.

History

  • Before May 1, 2012, the Exotic Parrot was commonly a familiar of choice for PvPers as its +15 equipment was advantageous in the "Familiar Weight" minigame.
  • At 5 lbs the parrot met The L33t Tr4pz0r's entire requirement for cold resistance in the old version of the level 8 quest.

References

  • "Don't forget DL-6" is a reference to the Nintendo DS game Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney in which the player must cross-examine a parrot in an attempt to get the bird to say, "Don't forget DL-6."
  • The haiku about the technicolor dreamcoat refers to the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which, in turn, is a reference to the Biblical story about Joseph and his coat of many colors.
  • The message where the parrot reports Timmy having fallen down a well is a common joke made referencing Lassie.
  • The message about "pieces of eight" is a reference to Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, in which Captain Flint, Long John Silver's parrot, screams, "Pieces of eight."
