vine gar You're fighting a vine gar

Among the vines that have overgrown the Spectral Pickle Factory, you encounter a vine gar. The scourge of both oceanic and jungle climes, it is one of the ugliest and meanest species of vine-swinging fish in the Kingdom. Don't let the fact that it's the only contender in this category fool you -- it's plenty mean, and plenty ugly.

It's a good thing this gar doesn't have two cars, because it looks pretty mad, and there's no way you could survive the dreaded "two car gar rage."

Hit Message(s):

It leaps from the vines and sinks its big, sharp, pointy teeth into your <kidney>. Oof! Ooh! Ugh! Argh! Ow! Eek! Ugh!

It channels its gar rage at you, covering you in grease. Somehow. Eek! Ooh! Ow! Ouch! Argh! Oof!

Critical Hit Message:

The gar produces two tiny toy cars from under one of its gills, and gives you a taste of his gar rage. It tastes like blood. Ouch! Ouch! Oof! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Eek! Ooh!

Miss Message(s):

It starts to leap from the vines at you, but some dude wearing nothing but a loincloth swings past on another vine and knocks it off-course.

It leaps from the vines, fails to bite you, and falls on the floor, where it must flop its way back to the vines.

Fumble Message:

The gar swings from one vine to another, from that vine to a third, and from the third right into a wall. He should have made his escape with the help of an ape, I guess. (FUMBLE!)
