Uses

Notes

  • Formerly required in order to defeat the Tyrannosaurus Tex in The Sorceress' Tower.
  • Can be used to shorten your time in McMillicancuddy's Farm.
  • When used in combat, it will either lower or increase the monster's Attack or Defense by about 17.
  • Using 100 of these makes you eligible for the Bringer of Storms trophy.
  • N (the amount of stat gain/loss) seems to range from 30-40.
  • The Meat gain/loss is apparently between 100 and 500.
  • Placing all your meat in your closet will protect you from meat loss, but the message still appears.
  • Using from inventory in Way of the Surprising Fist seems to always result in meat loss - never meat gain, stat gain or stat loss.

References

  • This item is a reference to the famous chaos theory concept known as "the butterfly effect," where small changes in variables can cause a great change in outcome (as in a butterfly flapping its wings affecting weather hundreds of miles away).
  • The comment about Jeff Goldblum references the film Jurassic Park, in which Jeff Goldblum plays scientist Ian Malcolm, who specializes in chaos theory.
