figure-skating duck You're fighting a figure-skating duck

This is one of the ducks that got driven from the barn into the frigid waters of McMillicancuddy's pond. It decided to make the best of a bad situation, though (just like Mom always said -- when life gives you ice, make ice water,) and has somehow fashioned a pair of ice skates.

Hit Message(s):

It snaps you with its icy bill. That said bill contains no teeth is cold comfort indeed. Brrrrrrrrrrr. (cold damage)

It does a quadruple salchow, which ends with a frigid ice skate to your brainpan. Brrrrrrrrrrr. (cold damage)

It does a triple-axel, foley, and sprays you with a blinding sheet of ice as it lands.. Brrrrrrrrrrr. (cold damage)

It does a double Lutz, lands on your back, and propels you through the thin ice into the ice-cold water. Brrrrrrrrrrr. (cold damage)

Critical Hit Message:

It does a beautifully-executed series of jumps, spins, and pirouettes, then pulls you in to do a couple of pas de ducks. It spins you around until you fall flat on the cold, cold ice. Brrrrrrrrrrr. (cold damage)

Miss Message(s):

It tries to do a double Lutz, but fails to stick the landing and slides across the ice.

It tries to do a triple-axel, but breaks down after a bad score from the Russian judge.

It does a quadruple salchow, then bows and waits for applause.

It starts to do a series of pirouettes, spinning over and over again, getting closer to you with each rotation. Before it can get to you, though, it drills a hole through the ice and falls in.

Fumble Message:

It tries to snap you with its icy bill, but the bill is too small to hurt you. It should have charged more. (FUMBLE!)

  • Axel, Lutz, and Salchow are all figure skating jumps. They are named after Axel Paulson, Alois Lutz, and Ulrich Salchow, respectively.
  • The Russian judge giving a bad score refers to figure skating judges being known by their country affiliation under the 6.0 judging system. Conspiracy theories about scoring often revolved around the country of origin of a judge.
  • Axel Foley is the main character that Eddie Murphy starred as in the Beverly Hills Cop movie series.
  • "when life gives you ice, make ice water" is a reference to the proverb "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."
