Shub-Jigguwatt, Elder God of Violence You're fighting Shub-Jigguwatt, Elder God of Violence

Shub-Jigguwatt, the Beast With One Point Twenty-One Volts, has awoken. Normally in these situations, we'd say he has awoken and he is hungry, but Shub-Jigguwatt has been very well fed. Every act of violence committed by any creature in the Kingdom, from a rat biting another rat to an adventurer biting yet another rat, has fed him. He is rested. He is ready. He has feasted upon violence, and he is violence, and he is ready to do violence.

You're determined to make your violent attacks against him his final meal.

Shub Jigguwatt sneers at you (insofar as sneering is possible with only one eye.) He raises his hands and bathes you in cascades of electricity. You wait around for your father to show up and throw him down some sort of bottomless shaft, but alas, it does not happen.

MPYou lose X Mana Points.
HPYou lose Y hit points.

Hit Message(s):

He crunches your <thigh> with his heavily armored foot. Ouch! Ooh! Ow! Ugh! Oof! Ugh! Ouch! Ow! Argh! Ooh!

He shocks you with the electric violence running through his body. He's like a living taser, bro. Ouch! Ugh! Ouch! Ugh! Argh! Ow! Oof! Ouch! Ugh! Eek!

He throws a spiked elbow at your <lower back>, shocking you with the electricity coursing through his veiny body. Ooh! Argh! Ugh! Ow! Oof! Ugh! Ouch! Oof! Ow! Eek!

He pummels you with a spiked fist, winking his eye at the pleasure of your pain. Argh! Ouch! Ooh! Argh! Argh! Argh! Ugh! Ow! Oof! Ooh!

He sends electricity coursing through your <solar plexus>. You may not play an instrument, but you're a great conductor. Argh! Eek! Eek! Ooh! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Oof! Ow! Ooh!

Critical Hit Message:

He claps his hands together around your skull, hard enough that you feel fractures form. Then he gives you some unlicensed and impromptu electroshock therapy.Argh! Argh! Ugh! Ugh! Oof! Ow! Ouch! Ouch! Ugh! Eek!

Miss Message(s):

He tries to stomp on you, but you stomp backwards just in time.

He tries to gore you with a horn, but you're opposed to gore with your violence.

He tries to shock you with an arc of electricity, but you tell him not to tase you, bro.

He throws an elbow at you, but you fight dirrrty, and you dodge when they're throwin' elbows.

He tries to pummel you with a spiked fist, but you resist the fist.

He tries to send electricity through your <face>, but your <throat> is a lousy conductor.

Fumble Message:

He runs out of electricity for a second, and teleports himself up into a nearby lightning storm to get re-shocked. (FUMBLE!)


After Combat


Upon winning the fight:

Shub-Jigguwatt collapses to one knee...

Notes

  • Occurs if you have taken the gladiator path and become champion of the arena.
  • Immune to all stunning (single-round or multi-round).
  • Dealing damage through any means except a standard attack will result in being hit for 20% of your maximum HP in damage, doubling with each instance.
    A bolt of lightning arcs out of Shub-Jigguwatts[sic] eye and hits you in the face. Remember, Shub-Jigguwatt only likes the purest forms of violence -- that fancy crap you just tried is only gonna make him angry.
  • Shub-Jigguwatt has a soft damage cap, after which a special damage reduction is applied. If an attack would do no more than 500 damage, then no damage reduction is applied. Otherwise, if Z is the base damage done, then the actual damage Shub-Jigguwatt takes is 500+floor((Z-500)^.6). This formula is applied to any type of damage and to any source of damage.
  • For his pre-fight attack, X is your current MP, and Y is X/2 (rounded up).
  • Has 95% resistance to elemental damage. Weakness to Cold and Sleaze is applied after this damage reduction.

Strategy

You will be given the Jiggu... What? effect before the combat begins (increases skill costs by 100 MP), and you will lose all your MP in the first round. This means that using skills is extremely impractical.

The simplest strategy is:

References

  • This monster's name references both the Cthulhu Mythos (specifically, Shub-Niggurath) and Back to the Future.
  • The desire for your father to throw him down a bottomless shaft (while he's shooting lightning at you) refers to Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
  • The taser messages refer to the "Don't Tase Me Bro!" meme. [1]
