skleleton You're fighting a skleleton

This is a scary skleleton. I mean, it's a normal skleleton, but scary in that it's walking toward you clenching its bony fists. Even though it moves in cheap stop-motion, it's menacing.

Hit Message(s):

It detaches a femur and pounds you in the <face> with it. Ow! Ow! Eek! Ow! (spooky damage)

It detaches one of its ribs and throws it at you, hitting you square in the <lower back>. Argh! Ow! (spooky damage)

It pulls off two fingerbones and hurls them at you, doing the Three Stooges eyepoke from an impressive distance. Ooh! Eek! (spooky damage)

It grabs a patella and throws it at you, effectively kneeing you in the head without even jumping. Ow! Oof! (spooky damage)

It chomps on your <bung> with its skeletal teeth. Which, y'know, are pretty much the same as all other teeth. Still hurts, though. Oof! Ugh! (spooky damage)

It pounds you with its arm bones. You don't find it particularly humerus. Argh! Ugh! (spooky damage)

Critical Hit Message:

The fearsome fiend reaches into his ribcage, pulls out a rusty sword and proceeds to duel you ten ways to Tuesday. Whatever that means. Argh! Argh! (spooky damage)

Miss Message(s):

It detaches a femur to pound you with, but loses its balance and falls to the ground.

It throws one of its ribs at you, but some sort of spectral dog catches it before it hits you.

It tries to chomp you with its skeletal teeth, but they start falling out now that the gums are gone.

It pounds you with its arm bones, but you just think that's humerus.

It tries to eyepoke you with two fingerbones, but you block with the side of your hand.

It grabs one of its patellae to throw at you, then falls over.

Fumble Message:

He pulls off his head and throws it at you. It bounces harmlessly off of you and rolls away. The skleleton wanders off on all fours searching for it. (FUMBLE!)

References

  • The "cheap stop-motion" probably refers to the famous stop-motion-animated skeletons created by Ray Harryhausen for the movie Jason and the Argonauts, which was enormously advanced at the time but looks shabby in comparison to modern CGI effects.
  • The last line of this enemy's description, "Even though it moves in cheap stop-motion", may also allude to the animated skeleton lead named Jack Skellington, from Tim Burton's 1993 movie The Nightmare Before Christmas. The spectral dog refers to the character's ghostly pet dog Zero.
  • The humerus is the long bone in the arm of humans and other things. It is a paronomasia on humerus and humorous, or as the people say, a pun.
