Let's face it, all those weapons that are meant for one species only aren’t
usually all they’re cracked up to be. Don’t get me wrong, some of them are pretty
good, but if you buy them, then get better ones, don't junk them! Put them to
I’ve gone through most of the different species’ specific weapons, and I’ve
found that they can be much more useful!
Note: Just so I don’t have to go through them individually, several weapons
come in many varieties. Most shields can be used for protection on rainy days.
All helmets are great for head-banging and opening locked doors. All swords
look great on the mantle and come in handy if you encounter that infamous super-tough
Jubjub: Use Jubjub shoes of flight to re-tar your roof. For a Halloween
costume, strap on an ancient Jubjub mask. You’ll have the best costume around,
and if some one doesn’t give you candy, blast 'em! Chin-ups getting you down?
Well, Jubjub power arms are just the thing for you! Love sticking your head
out the window, but not the wind in your eyes? Jubjub goggles will protect your
peepers through any wind.
Usul: Use a Usul lemon bomb to get your floors sparkly clean, and lemony
fresh in an instant. Chop down those pesky tree weeds with a Usul Axe.
Quiggle: Use a Quiggle tongue whip to reach the remote without getting
out of your Lazy-Pet recliner. Make your massages much better with Quiggle brass
knuckles. Find the secret of that Quiggle Sword of Terror, and you can put on
a magic show: come see the amazing disappearing sword! (only works once)
Pteri: The Jacket-goggle combo looks great. Make a sword-sized hole
in a big rock, place your Pteri sword in, gather up all your non-Pteri friends,
and have a good game of see who can pull the sword out. I guarantee you’ll win
Kyrii: Love April Fools? The Kyrii shocker and Kyrii Cork gun do the
trick when it comes to pranks. The Kyrii tank top is great for lying on the
beach if you get stepped on a lot. If you want to be painted desert, but can't
afford it, the Kyrii Battle helmet gives you an inexpensive “queen of the Nile”
kind of look.
Koi: A Koi amulet will give you that 60s style look, and help you out
if anyone tries to pick on you for your out-of-date style. If the summer sun
makes you feel like a fish out of water, don’t get burnt up about it, get a
Koi seaweed amulet. For all those Koi divers, keep the glare out of your eyes
and make less painful belly flops with Koi goggles.
Korbat: Keep warm when diving to the surface of cold lakes to catch
pray with your Korbat chest plate. Use Korbat wing guards to help you glide
on long trips. If you need a new hobby, Korbat swords are the perfect size for
throwing. Are you really “blind as a bat?” well, if you wear a Korbat Helmet
around, you’ll have an excuse for bumping into things.
Chomby: Does your dance partner have four left feet? Wear your Chomby
boots of might and dance the night away pain-free. If you are tired of always
going slow, put your Chomby rocket belt on backwards, and fire away. Cheetahs
don’t got nothin’ on you!
Elephante: With your Silver Elephante attack boots, the school bullies
will regret the day they ever tried to trip you! If you are hosting a party,
use your Sword of Trumpeting to make the h'dourves and play a cool tune. If
you love uprooting tasty trees, but hate the splinters, wear your Silver Elephante
helmet and kiss your tweezers good-bye.
