Irritating Series of Random Encounters
|Irritating Series of Random Encounters|
|Locations||The Penultimate Fantasy Airship|
You're trying to walk from the front of the airship to the back, but you are unable to do so without being attacked by a series of 30 or 40 nearly identical nondescript enemies. Man, that's irritating.
They kind of blandly stomp you into a mudhole. Yawn. I mean, Ow. Ooh! Eek!
They smack you around a little. And then a little more. Ugh! Ooh!
Three of them form a stack, in an effort to become slightly more interesting. It's still painfully boring. Ouch! Eek!
They all swarm around you, bouncing excitedly up and down. Then they start bouncing up and down on top of you. You feel irritated, random, and in intense pain. Eek! Ow! Argh! Ow!
They blandly and blindly attack, but you distractedly step to the side.
They try and hit you, but for some reason just stand about ten feet away and make hitting motions.
They start to attack again, but are stopped by a series of unfortunate events. Most of which are far too unfortunate to describe. Sorry about that. (FUMBLE!)

Occurs at The Penultimate Fantasy Airship.
- This monster counts as a group (of size 20). It takes manifold damage from area-of-effect skills such as Wave of Sauce.
- Like many things that occur on the Penultimate Fantasy Airship, this monster is a general RPG reference. It references the fact that you can never go far in dungeons and fields in many games of the genre without having a random encounter with an enemy. For example, in the first Final Fantasy, there was even an area (which, thankfully, could be bypassed) that automatically triggered a random battle every time the party took a step!
- The monster image resembles the mascot of Square-Enix's well known Dragon Quest (known often as Dragon Warrior in North America) RPG series - Slimes. One hit message references Slime Stacks, which are formed shortly after getting into an encounter with three Slimes.
- "They try and hit you, but for some reason just stand about ten feet away and make hitting motions" refers to many RPGs, where the monsters never actually approach you to attack, they just sort of make motions or flash and your characters take damage.
- This monster's fumble message refers to the children's book series A Series of Unfortunate Events. The remark on how the events are too unfortunate to describe is a mention on how the author, Lemony Snicket, repeatedly suggests that a reader should not read the book because of how unfortunate the events are.
- The monster's acronym is a general term for many irritating sights: ISoRE ("Eye Sore").
