MSTed - Morph Ball

"Samus Aran has many, many ranks in Tumble." Yep. Four trillion, seventy-nine billion, three-hundred and twenty million, four thousand and ninety-two ranks in Tumble, as of Metroid Fusion. Yes, I did the math.

We're about halfway through my plan for this chapter. The plot will be advanced eventually. Probably.

The original version of this comic is here.

This arc turns the better than a light bulb trope even higher, doesn't it?

It's Better Than A Bare Bulb. And yes, it does. This chapter's taking lampshading Up To Eleven, or perhaps even Beyond The Impossible.

Transcript:

Narrator: Three hours later...
Fred: ... and they'll get attacks of opportunity! And battleaxes do pretty good damage to a level 1 character! And you don't have ranks in Jump, or Tumble, or anything!

Joel: Also, thousands of miles away.
Bob: How do you *know* I don't have ranks?
Fred: Bob, you don't know what a Jump check even is.
Bob: ... you win this round.

Fred: And... crap. I think it just might be the time to RUN for my life.

Crow: Gee, you think?
Jane: Less shouting, more running for your life.
Trope-tan: Attack of the goblin clones!
Jane: Goblins are cloned?
Trope-tan: Y'know, because they're the same drawing? Just copied and pasted? Oh, forget it.

Fred: At least I put so many ranks in Tumble...

Trope-tan: Pop quiz, hotshot. How many ranks does Fred Phillips have in the Tumble skill?
Joel: Four?
Tom: A flobbity-jillion?
Crow: Shoot the hostage?

Fred: Eep. I'm up pretty high.
Maybe if I close my eyes all this will go away...
Crow: The suspense is killing me. And the bad writing.
Tom: Will Fred survive this ordeal? Find out after the break!
Crow: Mostly the bad writing.

Morph!

Joel: Wait, *what*?
Fred: Yep. I can blatantly rip off moves from classic video games.
Joel: No, seriously, where did you get that ability?
Fred: Wizard did it.
Joel: Oh. Okay.

Jane: And today in Swallow Falls, it's raining giant blue bowling balls!
Fred: Yipes! I-I'll be crushed... and no time to jump aside!
Trope-tan: There's time to stutter about it, though.

Fred: You're coming with me!

Crow: It's curious that the remaining hundreds of goblins are making no effort to stop the bright blue intruder.
Joel: Probably because they don't want to die horribly, crushed under a bowling ball.
Crow: He doesn't even *look* like a bowling ball.

Goblin Mook #1: So, uh, how many ranks of Tumble do you think he-
Goblin Mook #3: Shut up.

Jane: Hey, do you think he's got morph-ball bombs?
Trope-tan: Almost certainly. A far more interesting question is whether he has super bombs.
Bob: Everybody shut up and stop making references I don't understand.
Trope-tan: ... you've never played a {{Metroid}} game? What are you *doing* in this comic?
