The Mingler

Paradigm Shift is a strong Cog attack that is used by The Minglers and Spin Doctors.

Animation

  1. The Cog wiggles its fingers, forming a straight line of yellow sparks.
  2. The sparks gradually move towards the targeted Toon(s).
    • If the Toon(s) is hit, they will be lifted up by the sparks and shaken in the air before being dropped back to the ground.
    • If the Toon(s) avoids the attack, they will jump over the sparks.

Phrases

  • "Look into my shifty eyes!"
  • "You'll get shifted out of place."
  • "Your shift is up!"
  • "Prepare to have your paradigm shifted!"
  • "I'm giving you the bad shift!"
  • "Watch out! I'm rather shifty."
  • "I guess it's your shift now."
  • "You've never shifted this much in your life."
  • "Isn't this an interesting paradigm."

Name of origin

A paradigm shift defines a sudden change in perspective towards a particular thing. This term was popularized by The Structure of Scientific Revolutions (1962), a book written by Thomas S. Kuhn who was a philosopher of science.

Trivia

  • Paradigm is pronounced "pair-a-dime" in American English or "par-a-dime" in British English.
  • The Paradigm Shift is one of the strongest attacks in the game. The Mingler at level 11 can use this attack to deal 24 damage to all Toons in battle.
    • Other 24-damage attacks include Chomp and Evil Eye. However, both only attack a singular Toon.
  • A Spin Doctor performing this attack has a slightly higher average accuracy than The Mingler performing the attack.
