ahhhh...

I believe the word is "nicker", a colloquialism referring to the soft sound made by contented horses. Mario, imagining such a peaceful creature, realized what a monster he'd become through his vengeful ways. Then his eyes blew up.

The leather bound book - I image a gold "TAILS GETS TROLLED" title making up the cover, with the first page simply reading "Chill Your Pill"

I see it as a hybrid game that has different genres depending on who you play as.

Fudd mode is basically Duke Nukem Forever but good.

It's better if it's not.

You know, I had no idea that was from Kill Bill, but that was the exact same thing I heard when I saw the gif.

It works so well.

Edit: Oh, I see it's not originally from Kill Bill but from Ironside.

I don't think so.

I'm skeptical of the intent considering some of the other stuff, but at minimum I don't see a problem with the concept of depicting the Big Bad Guy using words that are used to suppress/hurt minorities as actually literally hurting people since part of the problem with them is that they think they are no big deal to say to the affected minorities. It could be a very clever metaphor for social justice in the context of some pieces, though here it seems like it was probably serendipitous. If the words were used against the minorities they are supposed to hurt I'd say it was a clever highlight about the hurt those can cause minorities.

I wasn't saying anything bad about the comic by that you know. :colbert: It was actually a minor compliment because I kind of like the concept, regardless if it was intended or not or how perfectly it was executed.

I have lots of other better things I could go after criticizing this comic for if I really wanted to spend the time, but it's self-aware so sometimes I'm not sure if it is just being ineffective in parts, oopsing from blindness or actually trying to promote bad things which makes it a little too complicated for me to try to put in the effort for this thread. At least for now.

C'mon Troll King, step your game up. Italians aren't fazed by racial slurs against black people (I'm pretty sure they invented most of 'em). That said, I bet Mario is faking bleeding out of his eyes, it's probably tomato sauce.

I completely forgot the Road Runners cameo until I saw the latest video rendition. I'm really hoping he gets another completely random character to intervene in this fight, that was one of the magical parts of the early comic.

That said, this words of death thing is a nice twist. The dialogue about shutting Luigi's brain down so he could be hosed to death is vintage.

Mario made his Save Vs. Death roll, so he only took 3D6 +1 damage.

Also, regarding the previous comic: is that the first time that the Troll King has shown fear in this comic?

Yep, Mario is the Spirit Bomb that he completely forgot about.

If there's any single regret Troll King has for the countless horrific events that have transpired in his wake, it's that he's dying.

Well if they incapacitate whoever hears them long enough for them to be beaten I guess they lead to death in their own way. It's more of "if you hear it you're as good as dead" thing (since you're soon to be hosed to death).

There's only one page left in this chapter (every other chapter has ended at the 21st page) so I wonder how he's gonna end it or if the fight will carry on into Chapter 8?

Well, if you keep using a word it would probably lose it's impact. What gives the deadly word it's power is that it's so hateful. It's probably not a one use thing, but using the same one over and over would probably weaken it, since it would lose meaning if it was used constantly.

Thanks lazerbot, for censoring the deadly word so it wouldn't kill your readers too.
