|Monster Parts||head, part of it that isn't the head|
This is like a Gel, only bigger, and with eyes. If you don't know what a Gel is, this description is pretty meaningless.
Unfortunately, it's the only description you're getting.
It eats a jellybean and turns into an umbrella, then pokes you in the <head>. Ugh! Ow! Ouch!
It coats you with nasty slime. Nasty, man. Argh! Argh! Argh!
It eats a jellybean and turns into a hammer, then hammers you in the morning and the evening. Argh! Ooh! Ouch!
It glomps onto your arm and dissolves a pretty pattern into your flesh. Etched! Ugh! Ooh! Ouch!
It increases in mass and turns a nasty pink color. It engulfs you and passes you through a rudimentary digestive system. You come out the other end feeling itchy and totally skeeved out. Oof! Ouch! Oof!
It eats a jellybean and turns into a ladder. Not even a particularly threatening ladder.
It tries to slime you in the <thigh>, but you dodge. You artful dodger, you.
It eats a jellybean and turns into a bubble. Not even a particularly threatening bubble.
It tries to glomp onto you, but you glibly remain unglomped.
It starts to attack again, but you quickly cast a spell to drop the temperature in the room. It freezes solid and can't attack for a while. (FUMBLE!)

- Gels were a common monster in the dungeons of the 1987 NES game, The Legend of Zelda.
- In the same game, Zols were also a common monster, which split into two gels when hit by the wooden sword. (The other swords killed it outright, and obtained goodies in the process.)
- Several of the attacks are a reference to the 1989 NES game A Boy and His Blob. In the game you can cause your friend Blob to change into various shapes by giving him different flavors of jellybeans.
- The blob turning pink and passing you through its digestive system is reminiscent of another NES being that has become quite famous, Kirby.
- The third hit message refers to the song "If I Had a Hammer", which features the lyrics "I'd hammer in the morning, I'd hammer in the evening / I'd hammer all day long".
- The Artful Dodger is a character in the Dickens novel Oliver Twist.
