lowercase B You're fighting a lowercase B

You descend the slant of the greater-than sign and encounter a lower-case b. It advances on you, making a strange sizzling noise.

Hit Message(s):

It bumps into you with the tall part on top of it. Ooh! Ow! Argh! Ouch!

It bashes, bludgeons, and belligerently berates you. Ooh! Eek! Oof! Argh!

It hits you with the edge of its bottom loop. Oof! Oof! Ooh! Ooh!

Critical Hit Message:

It wraps its bottom loop around your neck and gives you a serious case of bruise-around-the-collar. Ow! Ouch! Ooh!

Miss Message(s):

It tries to bump into you, but you duck behind a giant apostrophe.

It moves toward you to attack, but gets distracted by a nearby floating lower-case E.

It tries to crush your foot, but you quickly protect your foot with a nearby left bracket.

Fumble Message:

It slides toward you, but accidentally steps on a caret and gets frozen in place for a while. (FUMBLE!)

After Combat
