Fickle Finger of F8 You're fighting the Fickle Finger of F8

On your way up the stairs of the Sorceress' Tower, you encounter a bizarre monster.

This bizarre monster is an enormous finger. It's an enormous middle finger, too. Just looking at it makes you ir8 and makes you want to regul8. If only you had something that can slice fingers...

Hit Message(s):

It pokes you with its giant fingernail. You hang from it briefly, and nothing hurts like hanging from a nail. Ooh! Argh! Ugh! Ooh! Ugh! Ow! Oof! Ouch! Oof! Oof!

It gives you a knuckle sandwich. Well, an open-face sandwich, given it's only one finger. Ouch! Ugh! Ugh! Eek! Argh! Eek! Ooh! Ooh! Ugh! Ugh!

You sling the can lid at the giant finger, which subsequently falls down the stairs in several pieces. Yeeeowch.
You gain 40 <substat>.

  • Although removed from its original location, it is still possible to fight one via wishing.
  • This monster's combat weakness is the razor-sharp can lid.
  • If you lose, you will receive a hint as to which item to use.
    • First hint: Stupid finger. If only you had something to slice it open with.
    • Second hint: What sort of things are fingers often sliced open on?
    • Third hint: You're looking for something you've probably cut yourself on before.
    • Fourth hint: Something shiny and sharp and frisbee-like would be perfect for beating this thing.
    • Fifth hint: A razor-sharp can lid from the Haunted Pantry ought to do the trick.
  • Despite the fact that the can cannon presumably shoots can lids, it does not work on this monster.


  • The name is a reference to the "The Flying Fickle Finger of Fate" award on Rowan and Martin's Laugh In, a variety show which aired in the late 60s to early 70s.
  • The name is also a pun - it refers both to the eXtreme way of spelling "fate" and to common keyboard configurations using the F8 key (which some schools of typing would have you use your right middle finger to press).
