Trippy Floating Head You're fighting a Trippy Floating Head

Gah! It's a giant floating head in the sky! It looks like it could hold secrets that would overturn everything we know about organized religion...

Nah, it's probably just a freaky floating head. It swoops down toward you, its purposes as obscure as its little smile.

Hit Message(s):

It shows you its hidden secrets. Everything turns so dark... you wake up a few minutes later, feeling conned. Ouch! Ow! Argh! (spooky damage)

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

It swoops around you, cackling madly. Your cerebral cortex starts to ache. Argh! Ugh! Argh! (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. Ugh! Ouch! Argh! (spooky damage)

Miss Message(s):

It tries to show you its hidden secrets, but you figure out that they're completely fictional.

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 line "It looks like it could hold secrets that would overturn everything we know about organized religion" is a reference to The Da Vinci Code. The image of the head resembles the subject of Da Vinci's famous painting, The Mona Lisa, right down to the 'little obscure smile'.
  • The line "It looks like it could hold secrets that would overturn everything we know about organized religion" may also reference Zardoz, a film where Sean Connery is carried off by a giant stone head to learn the secrets of God.
  • The line "Everything turns so dark... you wake up a few minutes later, feeling conned" refers to a line from one of the word puzzles in The Da Vinci Code, "So dark the con of man". It may also refer to the witlessness of that book's central twist, which nearly every reader guesses at the first moment it is possible to, leaving them feeling cheated when it is revealed at the end that they did.
  • The line "It tries to show you its hidden secrets, but you figure out that they're completely fictional." may refer to the controversy over the historical accuracy of elements within the book and film versions of The Da Vinci Code.
