Octorok You're fighting an Octorok

This is a sort of land-based octopus, which shoots rocks out of its snout (a feature which makes it somewhat less like an octopus.) Er, be careful, I guess...

Hit Message(s):

It octo-rocks you like an octo-hurricane. A hurricane of grievous injury. Argh! Ouch!

It shoots a rock at you and beans you in the <eye>. How it beaned you with a rock, you'll never know. Ow! Ooh!

It shoots a rock at you, which slams into your throat. Dude, you just got rocked. Eek! Eek! Oof!

It shoots a rock at you. When it hits, you briefly became translucent and hear a series of high-pitched chirps. Maybe that's how pain shows up here. Ow! Ugh! Oof!

Critical Hit Message:

You hear a screech from high in the sky. A giant bird flies down and picks up the octoroc, then squeezes it until it fires a fusillade of rocks at you. Looks like you got roc-octoroc-rocked. Ouch! Eek! Argh!

Miss Message(s):

It tries to octo-rock you like an octo-hurricane, but remembers it's an octopus, not a scorpion.

It shoots a rock at you, but you roll to the side.

It shoots a rock at you, but you quickly wind a piece of string around it.

Fumble Message:

It shoots a rock at you, but a kid walks up, dressed in a sheet with a bunch of holes in it and holding a paper bag. The rock falls into the kid's bag. "Rats," he says, "not this again." (FUMBLE!)
