Combat Messages
  • Regular combat messages:
    <name> stares blankly at you. "I just -- I just -- I can't -- I don't --" he sputters, compulsively winking and grinning a nervous grin.
    <name> complains, "My spoon is toooo biiiig."
  • Enthroned in the Crown of Thrones:
    <Name> shouts, "It's your turn now, Thorasmog!" He sucks some blood from it and spits it into your bloodstream. It's refreshing, but you hope that's the last time you hear 'spit' and 'bloodstream' in the same sentence.
    HPYou gain 8-10 hit points.
  • Bjornified in the Buddy Bjorn:
    <name> injects some blood into the back of your neck. You decide not to ask him where he got it.
    HPYou gain 8-10 hit points.
  • With lucky Tam O'Shanter equipped:
    <name> winks convulsively under the Tam O'Shanter, twitching so hard the hat barely stays on his head.
  • With miniature gravy-covered maypole equipped:
    <name> does a twitchy, flailing dance around the maypole. Someone should get him a giant business suit.
  • With wax lips equipped:
    The wax lips bounce up and down as <name> twitches uncontrollably behind them.

Arena Messages

  • When entered in an Ultimate Cage Match:
    <name> doesn't really like fighting. It makes him nervous.



  • The familiar's name and combat messages are a play on the term nervous tic.
  • "Hang ten for justice!", from the first line of the familiar haiku, is a direct quote from The Tick cartoon.
  • The Tick's battlecry is "SPOOOOOOOON!"
  • The phrase "My spoon is too big" comes from Don Hertzfeldt's short film Rejected, which also includes a scene where angry ticks fire out of a character's nipples.
  • The Maypole combat message is a reference to the movie Stop Making Sense. In the film, a concert movie featuring Talking Heads, David Byrne does some twitchy, flailing dancing in a big suit.
