Trippy Floating Head You're fighting a Trippy Floating Head

Wow, this giant floating head appears to be emanating some kind of foul stench. You can actually see the smell coming off of it in wavy lines. It looks freaky and threatening, if not fully operational.

Hit Message(s):

It murmurs, "you don't know how hard it was for me, signing the order to terminate your life". You freak out. Eek! Ouch! Ouch!

It flies straight through you. A cold chill passes halfway up your body, turns into a warm chill, and continues passing. Ow! Ugh! Argh! (spooky damage)

It swoops around you cackling madly. You feel your cerebral cortex start to ache. Ouch! Ooh! Ow! (spooky damage)

Critical Hit Message:

It spins around and creates a whirling vortex of cackling insanity. Unfortunately for you, you get your cortex caught in it. You should have paid more attention to those bumper stickers, man. Ow! Ooh! (spooky damage)

Miss Message(s):

It murmurs, "you don't know how hard it was for me... for me..." and starts being choked by some unseen force.

It flies straight through you. You feel a little turned on, but it wasn't painful.

It swoops around you cackling madly, but you close your eyes and hum a happy tune.

Fumble Message:

It spins around and creates a vortex of cackling insanity. Fortunately, you remember the lessons you learned from bumper stickers and don't get your cortex caught in it. (FUMBLE!)

References

  • The pictured head is of Grand Moff Tarkin, commander of the original, fully operational Death Star. Tarkin's head has also graced the KoL forums for most of their existence, much to the confusion of users who are less familiar with the first Star Wars movie.
  • "Being choked by some unseen force" is also a reference to Star Wars, where Darth Vader used the Force to choke another Moff.
  • "It looks freaky and threatening, if not fully operational." is another Star Wars reference, specifically Emperor Palpatine to Luke about the Death Star 2. "Now witness the power of this fully-armed and operational battle station!"
  • "You don't know how hard it was for me, signing the order to terminate your life." is a mangled quote from Grand Moff Tarkin's first on-screen appearance. The original line begins "You don't know how difficult I found it".
  • The references to a foul stench refers to Princess Leia's first onscreen meeting with Tarkin; she reacts to his arrival with the line, "I should have recognized your foul stench when they brought me aboard."
