Niggling Things: Yomi Edition (The Nigglepocalypse)


#1

Precede: This is not meant to be taken seriously.

Base Cast Niggles

:chibigrave: GRUM’BLY GRUV

  • TPOS pls stop. I don’t like tea. Stop the tea. Should be called COFE: Calling of Furious Electricity. Coffee is better than tea.
  • Moar t’rows pls

:chibijaina: JANKY JAINA

  • Why does Jaina have a card-spin? Quince’s card spin is an abstraction of him being sneaky and cheaty.
  • Why wasn’t Jaina disqualified for using a bow and arrows in a martial arts tournament?

:chibimidori: MEASLY MIDRY

  • Why isn’t Midori a dragon ALL the time? If I could turn into a dragon at will, I’d do it ALL the time.
  • Why does Midori’s dragon form leave his beard intact, braids and all, but his clothes vanish into thin air?
  • Why is dQ a linker? WHY IS dQ A LINKERRRRRRRRRR?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

:chibisetsuki: SNEAKY SALT-MINER

  • PAAAAAAAAAAAAAAINNNNNNN

:chibivalerie: VICARIOUS VALS

  • What even is Valerie’s paint made of and why does it hurt so much?
  • 360 no-skill

:chibirook: ROCKY ROAD

  • Why is he so bad, so bad, so bad, so bad… so bad … why would anyone play him? He’s so bad…

:chibidegrey: DIDLEY DIDLEY NOODLY POODLY NEDDELY

  • Why does having less cards in hand give you the moral high ground? Less cards means you were either attacking, powering up for more attacking power, or squandering your resources… not exactly great signs of moral virtue…

:chibigeiger: GIGGLER

  • If Geiger can manipulate time, why hasn’t he just won the tournament already? Doesn’t time manipulation just beat every other conceivable ability ever?
  • Obligatory “ZA WARUDO!!!”

:chibiargagarg: THE FISH

  • Why wasn’t Argagarg disqualified for using a hex on his opponents in a martial arts tournament?

:chibilum: ENDANGERED DUMPING

  • WHY DOES THE COIN TOSS DO 4 DAMAGE!!! IT’S JUST A COIN!! IT DOES MORE DAMAGE THAN 2 ATTACKS!!!

Shadow Niggles

:chibitroq: MELANOMA

  • HE COPIED ROOK’S KING
  • WAR STOMP IS ANTI-FUN
  • SO MUCH CARD REDUNDANCY
  • BEST THROW RANGE IN THE GAME
  • AND YET, REALLY GOOD ATTACKS AS WELL
  • Stop existing pls

:chibibbb: MR. ROBOTO

  • BBB is perfect.

:chibionimaru: SUN TSU WANNABE

  • Why wasn’t Onimaru disqualified for using a sword in a martial arts tournament?
  • Better t’rows pls

:chibiquince: DONALD TRUMP

  • Why is a politician fighting in a martial arts tournament?
  • No seriously. Why is Quince partaking in a martial arts tournament?
  • Just have Bigby injunction everyone’s ass.
  • Arrest everyone.
  • Just do it.

:chibigloria: BELLY BUTTONS

  • Why does the healer costume Gloria wears have no torso coverings except for her bra?
  • Why do they even have bras in this universe? They shouldn’t be invented yet.

:chibigwen: SMELLEY BUTTONS

  • Why does the healer costume Gwen wears have no torso coverings except for her bra?
  • Why do they even have bras in this universe? They shouldn’t be invented yet.
  • How is Gwen so fast in a dress? Dresses are debilitating.

:chibimenelker: EDGELORD

  • Wouldn’t it be more straightforward to just give Menelker Bleeding Wounds on ALL his face cards instead of letting him power up for black ones?

:chibipersephone: SIRLIN WHY?

  • Mistress’ Command is anti-fun. Most anti-fun ability in the game imo.

:chibivendetta: ENOMUS

  • More card redudancy pls

:chibizane: NOOB ASSIST

  • If Zane is so unpredictable, why can I accurately predict that he’ll show up in nearly every match in tournaments?
  • Why does Zane TAKE OFF HIS GOGGLES IN HIS ACES?!?!?!?!?! WHAT ARE THE GOGGLES EVEN FOR?!?!?!?!?!

#2

the goggles do nothing


#3

From the old forums:

Does Val:

  1. Have one big paintbrush and 2 small ones?
  2. One brush but it grows and shrinks and splits?
  3. Paint them and her dress into existence?

Here’s my breakdown of some of your niggling thoughts.
Note: Semi-serious

:chibigrave:

  • Tea is an excellent remedy for sodium saturation, I hear.

:chibijaina:

  • Card spin is like a fake-out. “Ha! You thought I was gonna punch you? Lemme back down instead!”
  • Kyudo is a legit martial art, so it’s allowed.

:chibimidori:

  • Dragons are scary, dude. Leave the scary stuff to the guys who hate people.
  • Clothes are an indication of weakness for form-shifters. Once they get that Kaioken, fabrics shred under their fearsome might.

:chibisetsuki:

  • “Cry more, please! It’s how I know I’m getting closer to beating Grave!”

:chibivalerie:

  • Acid. No, shut up, it’s colored acid.
  • Get no-snoped, bro.

:chibirook:

:chibidegrey:

  • Fewer cards means less emotional and mental baggage, which means you have a bigger and more stable soapbox to stand on.
  • Anybody who makes a Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure reference gets punched in the face, no exceptions.

:chibigeiger:

  • He hasn’t gotten the time manipulation down pat just yet.
  • punch

:chibiargagarg:

  • You’re holding a natural and unavoidable handicap against him? Sounds like victim-blaming to me, bro.

:chibilum:

  • Ever play quarters? That crap hurts like hell.

:chibitroq:

  • For every Zangief, there’s a T.Hawk.

:chibibbb:

  • I’ll allow it.

:chibionimaru:

  • Kenjutsu is a legit martial art, so it’s allowed.

:chibiquince:

  • He needs to see who he’s blocking out with his wall.
  • And who’s paying for it.

:chibigloria:

  • Freedom of movement while you’re applying healing magicks that require you to hold still.
  • Also, breezes probably feel good on the midriff, I dunno.
  • There’s no real establishment of technology in the Realm, so bras make sense.
  • Besides, look at Valerie. She’s pretty much in lingerie.

:chibigwen:

  • Freedom of movement while you’re applying freezing magicks that require you to hold still.
  • Also, she would probably feel like she’s roasting in a full-top outfit.
  • Also, breezes probably feel good on the midriff, I dunno.
  • I feel like the dress is less inhibiting than those sandals. I dunno, I blame the Plague.

:chibimenelker:

  • No, because not every match has to be a First Blood match.

:chibipersephone:

  • “On your knees, vermin! That is where you belong!”

:chibivendetta:

  • Give him chip damage on AAA. That massive thumb claw has to at least poke out an eye or something.

:chibizane:

  • Because he’s gotta get the cash, gotta get the dough.
  • Gotta get the cash, gotta get the dough.
  • Body for a price? JUST SAY SO!
  • The goggles are redundant. He moves too fast for stuff to get in his eyes.

Quince is not Donald Trump.

Quince has TWO truths, Trump doesn’t even have one.


#6

ow my face


#7

It’s demonstrably true that I can’t play Rook - if you want Rook advice you want to talk to @Djister

The more I think about it, the more I feel like Rook should be played without using Rock Armor except as sparingly as possible, or from an already solid life lead.

TL;DR friendship is ended with Rook, Midori is the most interesting grappler now


#8

I feel like I don’t even know you anymore


#9

And that’s why I’m better than you at Yomi.


#10

I should really play more Midori…


#11

Get back to me on MSS, btw. I want to schedule our match.
