  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."
