You are fighting squid bot.
This robotic version looks less like a real squid and more like some sort of plush (well, not plush, per se, as that doesn't work well under water--but toy-ified isn't a word, either) version of a squid. When you get closer, the bank of torpedoes stacked in its torso and the laser beak belie a greater danger.
Your opponent attacks ...
- Having already faced down hordes of mutant squidopi, you apply your patented tentacle-tying technique. Unfortunately, you forget to account for the squid's tenth tentacle, which squeezes you painfully.
- It's been said that there's a sucker born every minute, which this squid aptly demonstrates by applying hundreds of them to your tender flesh.
- The ten-tentacled terror of Twilight traps your tibia and tears your tendons. Terribly.
It hits you for X damage.
Critical hit message:
Your opponent has a critical hit! It hits you for X damage.
- A passing robotic kraken temporarily scares off the robotic squid. You try to give chase to the kraken to see if it is carrying a robotic eye of the robotic depths, but the squid catches up with you and insists you continue the fight.
- The squid bot tries to auction up some pain, but you bid squat and it goes undelivered.
- You dart back rapidly, and the squid gives chase. Because it has to swim backwards, it misses you and glides harmlessly by.
Your foe fumbles! It takes X damage.
Victory! You beat up your foe and win the combat!
You gain (scales by stats) experience.
Verified to have no resistances or weaknesses.
