When Used

You screw open the lid of the jar, and are thrown to the ground with the force of the poltergeist's emergence. You can't see it, but you can certainly see its effects -- random crap starts rising from the ground and viciously pounding on your opponent, dealing 200-250 damage. After a few minutes of this, Craig T. Nelson breathes a sigh of relief as the poltergeist calms down and vanishes.



  • The description of this item refers to the Irish drinking song "Whiskey in the Jar".
  • The use message is a reference to the 1982 Steven Spielberg film Poltergeist, starring Craig T. Nelson.
  • The item also likely references "Ghost in a Jar," a bygone Internet phenomenon revolving around the sale of glass jars on eBay, all of which were claimed to have ghosts residing therein.
