HE GIANT NUZLEAF ON TOP OF ELDER TREE. YOU WANT KILL HIM.


YOU AT FINAL BOSS! is one of the most famous RTDs ever produced on the Bay12 forums, it is incredibly popular and is full of many zany antics. I plan on running this either until I get bored or until it ends, but yeah, standard minimalist rules apply, hopefully this will inspire me to do a more serious RTD again in the future.

This Pokemon is infamously irritable, but it comes down from its rage quickly. It is quite loyal to kind, patient Trainers.

THROW HERACROSS.
[3] YOU THROW HERACROSS. IT HITS BOSS. YOUR THROW WAS KIND OF WEAK THOUGH, SO IT DID NOT HURT MUCH. NUZ IS VISIBLY IRRITATED.

Screw good strategies, I shall launch an Incineroar at the Giant Nuzleaf by using a cannon!
[5] You put your wrestle kitty into the cannon, and fire. Its powerful Flare Blitz is SUPER EFFECTIVE! It knocks Nuz off the tree. Nuz is hurt, and is very angry.

SUMMON AQUIFER
[3] YOU SUMMON ROCKS FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN TO ATTACK THE BOSS! BUT YOUR POWERS ARE STILL UNTRAINED, SO YOU ARE ONLY ABLE TO SUMMON PEBBLES. PEBBLES DON'T HURT NUZ AS MUCH. NUZ IS CONFUSED BY THIS ACTION.

FIRE ASSAULT CANNONS
[6] YOU LOAD UP THE ASSAULT CANNONS AND THEY FIRE, BUT THEY SHOOT ALL OVER THE PLACE, CAUSING DAMAGE TO THE ENTIRE FOREST AND ATTACKING MEMBERS OF YOUR TEAM!

0ANONYMOUS WAS ATTACKED BY THE CANNONS! THEY MUST ROLL TO DODGE!

[4 FOR CANNONS/4 FOR 0] 0 MANAGES TO USE HIS PEBBLE SUMMONING POWER TO STOP THE CANNON BALL IN ITS TRACKS BEFORE IT COULD HIT HIM.

BOSS TURN:

"Urgh! That really hurt you know! GET A LOAD OF THIS!"

BOSS SUMMONS ARMY OF BELLSPROUT!

[6] THE BELLSPROUT ARMY HAS VERY HIGH STATS, BUT IF THEY ARE EVEN TOUCHED THEY EXPLODE, KILLING OFF MORE OF THEM THAN DESIRED.

Large Bellsprout Army

Highly Explosive.

THIS CAN ONLY GO WELL.

LIGHT TREE ON FIRE
[1] YOU TRY TO LIGHT THE TREE ON FIRE, BUT YOU INSTEAD DROP YOUR FLAMING OIL BUCKET ON YOURSELF! YOU MUST ROLL TO DODGE!

[3 FOR BUCKET/2 FOR 0] AS YOU TRY TO BACK AWAY, YOUR HANDS ARE SCALDED BY THE BOILING OIL! YOU NOW HAVE SECOND DEGREE BURNS ON YOUR HAND, THAT WILL CAUSE A -1 TO ANY ACTION INVOLVING THEM FOR THE NEXT 2 TURNS.

FIRE ASSAULT CANNONS THAT FIRES SMALLER ASSAULT CANNONS
[3] YOU CREATE AN ASSAULT CANNON THAT FIRES SMALLER ASSAULT CANNONS. HOWEVER, THE SMALLER ASSAULT CANNONS ARE NERF BRAND TOYS, AND DO VERY LITTLE DAMAGE TO THE BELLSPROUT ARMY, SO LITTLE DAMAGE THAT THEY DIDN'T EXPLODE, A FEW TRIPPED OVER THE NERF ROUNDS THOUGH.


I use a machine gun and shoot at some of these Bellsprouts, to cause a chain reaction of explosions.
[3] You use a nearby machine gun to fire at the Bellsprouts, and you manage to hit around 3 of them, but they were too far away to cause any real explosive damage to the rest of the army.

ignore the bellsprouts! i punch the boss right in the face
[3]: You rush past the Bellsprouts, climbing up the Elder Tree, and punch Nuz right in his big nosed face... but it hardly damages him. Nuz, very visibly irritated, goes to punch you in the face. You must roll to dodge!

[4 for Nuz/1 for AWK] Nuz punches you so hard, that your head flies off. You died. Oh well, better luck next turn.

I can't resist attacking with context! I throw a giant self-destructing Voltorb at Nuz!
[2] You don't throw the Voltorb at Nuz. You instead sit down and wait for your inevitable demise by the Bellsprouts.

ohkay... we have a giant nuzleaf. so... TO THE SKIES CHARIZARD; USE BLAST BURN ON THAT GIANT NUZLEAF AND ITS ARMIES
[3]: YOU GO TO ATTACK NUZLEAF WITH CHARIZARD... BUT YOU INSTEAD SUMMON A CHARMANDER, IT LOOKS VERY AFRAID, AND ALSO CANNOT FLY. IT INSTEAD USES EMBER ON SOME OF THE BELLSPROUTS, DEALING SOME DECENT DAMAGE TO THEM.

BOSS TURN:

"Hmm, that was amusing. Here, how about you try one of THESE!"

BOSS USES RAZOR LEAF! Everyone must roll to dodge!

[4 for Razor Leaf/6 for 0] 0 dodges razor leaf!

[2 for Razor Leaf/5 for Lucario]: Lucario dodges Razor Leaf, leading the leaves into the Bellsprouts, causing an explosive chain reaction.

[4 for Razor Leaf/5 for Aureum]: Aureum dodges razor leaf!

AWK is currently dead, but will return next turn.

[1 for Razor Leaf/2 for Browncow]: Browncow dodges razor leaf!

[5 for Razor Leaf/6 for Fractale]: Fractale dodges razor leaf!

"D'oh I missed!"

Medium Bellsprout Army

Highly Explosive.

Well if first you don’t succeed...
Set everything on fire!

I shall use Firium Z to turn one of Incineroar’s fire moves into Inferno Overdrive and just plow through them!

I'd copy-paste the Zorua Pokedex entry, but I'm too lazy.
I feel like explosive Bellsprouts could be very helpful. I try to catch them with Ultra Balls.

[6] You use Firium Z, turning Incineroar's Flare Blitz into Inferno Overdrive... there's just one problem. There's too much power in the move and it is going to cause a reaction that will deal massive damage to everyone! Everyone must roll to dodge!

[2 for Inferno Overdrive/2 for Aureum] You manage to hide next to a rock, which luckily protects you from the burning flames overtaking the area.

[1 for Inferno Overdrive/2 for Fractale] Fractale's Charmander manages to consume the flames in its direction, protecting its master.

[3 for Inferno Overdrive/6 for Zorua3] Zorua manages to absorb the fire and grant themselves the ability of pyrokinesis.

[3 for Inferno Overdrive/3 for 0 Anon] 0 manages to jump into a nearby pool of water to evade the flames.

[5 for Inferno Overdrive/5 for Browncow] Browncow uses one of the vines from the Elder Tree to swing out of the impact area.

[2 for Inferno Overdrive/4 for AWK] AWK pours some milk on the flames, causing them to not damage them, or their corpse.

[6 for Inferno Overdrive/2 for Bellsprout Army] The Bellsprouts combust into a massive explosion, leaving none remaining.

[6 for Inferno Overdrive/5 for Nuz] Nuz was hit by the attack, and moderate damage was dealt to him. Nuz looks to be in pain.

ok... it wasnt what i wanted. but i will do what i can with the charmander that is gift from great RNJesus.

LETS DO THIS CHARMANDER, EMBER ON EVERY BELLSPORUT WE CAN SEE
[2] This action is impossible, as the Bellsprout Army was destroyed by Aureum's Inferno Overdrive.

I feel like explosive Bellsprouts could be very helpful. I try to catch them with Ultra Balls.
[2] This action is also impossible, as Aureum destroyed the Bellsprouts before you could attempt to capture them.

REVEAL I HAVE THE FLASH FIRE ABILITY, POWERING UP FROM THE BURNS
[4] YOU HAVE THE FLASH FIRE ABILITY. YOU ARE NOW HEALED FROM YOUR BURNS, AND FIRE CAN NO LONGER DAMAGE YOU UNLESS THIS INCARNATION DIES.

I summon forth the great Bellsprout that is supposedly the pillar of Sprout Tower.
[1] You instead summon a massive Wailord, right on top of yourself. You must roll to dodge!

[1 for Wailord/3 for Browncow] You manage to avoid the Wailord... but now it's just sitting there.

continue to be dead
[1] You attempt to be dead, but Luigi shows up and starts sucking your ghost into his vacuum pack! You must roll to dodge!

[1 for Luigi/5 for AWK] You scared Luigi so much that he died instead. RIP Luigi.

BOSS TURN:

"MY FLESH!!! IT BUUUUUUUUUURNS!!!! MEDIIIIIIIC!!!!"

NUZ SUMMONS THE MEDIC FROM TF2 TO RESTORE HIS HEALTH!

[4] HE IS SUCCESSFUL AND THE MEDIC BEGINS TO RESTORE NUZ' LOST HEALTH.

Currently being healed by Medic.
