Defeating The MetalEdit
|Warning: This section contains spoiler information about The Metal. Please click "show" to view.|
When "The Metal" is encountered, he is initially a level 20 boss with over 10 million hit points.
In this new state, it will be level 16, with ~10,000 health, and be susceptible to autotune damage while being resistant to hot hot heat damage.
The Metal Shreddifier
The "Metal Shreddifier" is a crafted item; the ingredients for which can be found by adventuring on "The Road." Three particular enemies, corresponding to genres of music will occasionally drop required components. "Techno" may drop "Pulse Beat," "Punk Rock" may drop "Power Chord," and "Grunge" may drop "Wicked Distortion." Once these three items are found, they can be crafted together to create a "Metal Shreddifier."
Finding all three items may take a while as they are not guaranteed drops. Note that the three music 'genre' items as well as the Shreddifier are single-use combat items and can (accidentally) be used against other enemies.
Cave of One Hit WondersEdit
Firelight dances upon torches affixed to the cave walls, and disappears into the distance. As you make your way deeper into the cave, the farthest two cave lights you can see extinguish - then re-light on their own.
As you approach, you see that they aren't torch lights at all, but eyes. Horrible fiery eyes, that shoot up to the ceiling of a great cavern as a behemoth robotic creature stands to block your path, offended by your intrusion.
How about it, sport? Try your hand at getting past this titan?
>>> I've had a good run... ATTACK!
The Metal... Weakened?Edit
The Metal Shreddifier explodes at the feet of The Metal into an array of straking light beams and cacophonous soud. The gargantuan beast falls to one of its robotic knees, cratering the ground beneath it.
"WHAT... WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME?!" the great beast bellows. Its voice is horrifyingly atonal.
Now's the chance to strike. The Metal shall pay for... whatever it did. Standing there looking all tall. Jerk.
You revisit the site where you conquered the unconquerable. Defeated the invincible. SLAYED A GIANT METAL ROBOT.
- Reference to Tenacious D's song "The Metal".
