Ninja Snowman You're fighting a Ninja Snowman

You seem to have interrupted this ninja snowman's lunch break. That's not a problem though, as he's perfectly willing to beat you senseless armed with only a rice bowl and a pair of chopsticks. And when I say it's not a problem, I mean for him. It could very well be a problem for you.

Hit Message(s):

He pokes you viciously in the <arm> with his chopsticks. Oof! Ugh! Argh! Oof! Ouch! Oof!

He slashes at you with his chopsticks, and you get wasabi in your eye. Aaaaaaaaiiiiiieeeee! Ow! Ow! Argh! Oof! Eek!

The snowman blows a handful of black dust at you. Everything goes all trippy, and you face your worst fears. Ugh! Oof! Ow! Ugh!

Disease.gifYou acquire an effect: Fearless
(duration: 10 Adventures)
Critical Hit Message:

He shows you the true meaning of the 'chop' in 'chop suey' Ouch! Ugh! Eek! Argh!

Miss Message(s):

He slashes at you with his chopsticks, but you make like Peking and duck. Ha ha ha, get it? 'Cause they're chopsticks?

He tries to poke you with his chopsticks, but you block with the edge of your hand. Nyuk nyuk nyuk.

The snowman blows a handful of black dust at you, but you step out of the way so fast that the dust is left in the dust.

Fumble Message:

A fly buzzes into the room, and he gets momentarily distracted by trying to catch it. (FUMBLE!)

Notes

  • If you are an Accordion Thief and haven't stolen an accordion from this monster today, this text is added to the introduction:
    Sitting on a wicker mat at the snowman's feet, you see a small, strangely-keyed accordion.
  • If you then cast Steal Accordion:
    You ask him an extremely difficult koan, and while he tries to figure it out, you take the weird accordion.
    Acc3.gifYou acquire an item: pentatonic accordion

References

  • In the various shorts performed by The Three Stooges, when one stooge tried to poke another stooge in the eyes with two fingers of the same hand, said stooge could block this attack by placing the edge of his hand along the bridge of his nose, preventing the fingers from reaching his eyes. "Nyuk nyuk nyuk" is the victorious chuckle that accompanies such an evasion.
  • The fumble message references the movie The Karate Kid, where the eponymous hero Daniel finds his sensei Mr. Miyagi attempting to catch flies with a pair of chopsticks and is informed that someone who can catch a fly in such a manner can achieve anything. Daniel's success in this endeavor minutes later is dismissed as beginner's luck by his teacher.
  • One of the hit messages and its following effect appear to be references to the movie Batman Begins, when Bruce Wayne is being trained by Henri Ducard to face his fears and overcome them through the use of a hallucinogenic flower.
