The Mingler

Paradigm Shift is a Cog attack that can be performed by The Minglers and Spin Doctors.

Animation

  1. The Cog wiggles its fingers forming yellow sparks which appear in a straight line.
  2. The sparks gradually move towards the targeted Toon(s).
  3. If the Toon(s) is hit, he/she will be lifted up by the sparks and shake in the air before being dropped back to the ground. If the Toon(s) avoids the attack, he/she will jump over the sparks causing them to disappear.

Definition

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 (1922–1996), a philosopher of science.

Trivia

  • This is capable of causing the most damage in comparison to any other Cog attack; this being because The Mingler can use this attack to cause 24 damage to a group of Toons.
  • A Spin Doctor performing this attack has a slightly higher average accuracy than The Mingler performing the attack.
  • Paradigm is pronounced "pair-a-dime" in American English or "par-a-dime" in British English.
  • There are other attacks which are also capable of causing a maximum of 24 damage, however these attacks only attack a single Toon. Those attacks are Chomp and Evil Eye.
