talking head You're fighting a talking head

And you may find yourself confronted by a talking head. And you may find yourself trying to defend yourself. And you may ask yourself "what is that head doing here?" And you may tell yourself "this doesn't make any sense!"

Hit Message(s):

Check out Mr. Talking Head, oh-oh -- he's got a wild, wild bite. Ouch! Oof!

The head was moving; it was biting swiftly, and it was. Ooh! Eek!

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco. This is a headbutt from a giant floating head. Argh! Eek!

Watch out! You might get what you're after! If what you're after is a headbutt from a giant floating head, that is. Ugh! Ugh!

It spits in your eyes, making you blind. Blind. Blind blind blind blind blind. You blindly stumble around and crack your head against the wall. Oof! Ugh!

It cruelly insults you with devastating accuracy. You wish it would stop making sense. Ooh! Eek!

Critical Hit Message:

The head says "do you remember anyone here?" When you respond that you don't remember anything at all, it swoops down and knocks you flat on your back. Eek! Ooh!

Miss Message(s):

It takes a wild, wild bite at you, but misses. And I know that's the way you like it, woah-oh.

The head was biting and then you were dodging, and it was.

It tries to headbutt you, but you ain't got time for that now.

It tries to bite you, but can't find you. Looks like it's blind, blind. Blind, blind, blind, blind, blind.

It swoops down at you, but you run run run run, run run run away.

It spews gibberish at you. It must have gotten older and stopped making sense.

Fumble Message:

The head says, "there's a party in my mind, and I hope it never stops." You respond that there's a party in your pants, but that the head isn't invited. It goes off to sulk for a bit. (FUMBLE!)
