Hodgman, The Hoboverlord You're fighting Hodgman, The Hoboverlord

You approach the immense, wizened hobo on the throne, and say "Are you in charge here?"

"[random text]" he replies.

"Umm. What?"

"[random text]"

"Ah, I get it. You're completely insane."

"[random text]" he says, as he stands up and lumbers toward you.

Hit Message(s):

He grabs a battered kerosene lamp from behind his throne of garbage, uses it to relight his stub of a cigar, then throws it at you, bathing you in burning fuel. Oof! Oof! Ow! Ow! Ugh! Eek! Ooh! Ugh! Ooh! Eek! (hot damage)

Hodgman mutters "[random text]" as he sticks his finger in his ear, pulls it out, and pokes you in the foot with it. Oof! Ugh! Ooh! Ouch! Argh! Ugh! Eek! Ow! Eek! Ooh! (stench damage)

He motions toward a spot on the ground behind you, and the skeleton of a hobo bursts out of the earth and chokes you. Man. Even dead hobos respect this guy. Ouch! Ow! Ow! Ooh! Argh! Oof! Ooh! Ooh! Argh! Ugh! (spooky damage)

Hodgman goes berserk. He screams "[random text]" as he viciously pummels you about the <groin>, <arm>, <giblets>, and <foot>. Oof! Oof! Eek! Eek! Ow! Eek! Ooh! Ooh! Argh! Ouch!

Critical Hit Message:

not known

Miss Message(s):

He points at the ground behind you and mutters "[random text]"

Fumble Message:

not known

Special Move(s):

Hodgman flips out and gets angry. You get the sense that you won't like him when he's angry, but since you don't like him much to begin with, that's no real surprise.

Notes

  • If the elemental bosses of Hobopolis are not killed, they will give Hodgman a hand in battle.
Ol' Scratch runs up from behind you and sets you on fire. You manage to put yourself out, but it shakes you up a little.
  • If Frosty is still alive (reduces damage by a lot):
Frosty hops up to Hodgman and gives him a rubdown. Hodgman shivers.
  • If Oscus is still alive (causes 5, tripling each round to a maximum of 135}:
Oscus saunters in, waves at Hodgman, and saunters out. The memory remains, however, as does the stench.
  • If Zombo is still alive (unequips some equipment):
Zombo sneaks up behind you and scares the crap out of you. Well, not the crap, but all of your clothes. And not out, but off, I guess.
  • If Chester is still alive (ignores your damage resistances):
Chester walks up to Hodgman and whispers something in his ear. You don't catch what it is, but you do catch Hodgman's eyes getting wider in a way you don't exactly like...

References

  • The fact that the hobo speaks in random text possibly refers to Foul Ole Ron, a beggar in Terry Pratchett's Discworld Series who speaks only gibberish, most notably the words "Bugrit!" and "Millenium Hand and Shrimp!"
  • John Hodgman is the author of The Areas of My Expertise, which includes a list of 700 hobo names (expanded to 800 in the paperback edition), among other hobo trivia. The admins asked for and were granted permission by Hodgman for the use of parts of his hobo names, as well as for permission to use him as the final boss of Hobopolis. Hodgman was reportedly "flattered".
