Weretaco You're fighting a Weretaco

This is a weretaco -- an ordinary man, who, when the moon is full, turns into a half-man, half-taco monstrosity.

Incidentally, for you detail-oriented people out there -- the weretaco's lycanthropic cycle is not tied to Ronald or Grimace, but to some completely unrelated moon in some completely unrelated alternate dimension. That's why you never see him turn into a human. Seriously.

Hit Message(s):

He crunches you between his shells. Your <foot> is bathed in smoking-hot salsa. Oof! Eek! (hot damage)

He bites you with his taco-fied fangs. Ugh! Oof!

He squeezes chorizo onto your <bung>. It starts to melt. Your <kidney>, that is, not the chorizo. Ugh! Argh!

He slices you with his shell and squeezes salsa into the wound. Yeeeeeow! Oof! Ow!

Critical Hit Message:

The weretaco's cheeks suddenly expand, almost as if he's filling them with fluid. Before you can wonder a number of things, including how a crunch tortilla shell can move like that, he spits jabanero sauce all over you. Ugh! Ooh!

Miss Message(s):

He crunches you between his shells, but crunches too hard and crumbles.

He bites you with his fangs, but fortunately his fangs are made of shredded cheese.

He squeezes chorizo onto you, but you quickly eat it before it can leave an acid burn.

He tries to slice you with his shell, but you haven't come out of your shell yet, and it's too thick to break through.

Fumble Message:

He rears up, ready to slice you with his crunchy shell... and suddenly turns into a highly embarrassed, naked man. You point and laugh. (FUMBLE!)
