This page is about the Downsizer's signature battle attack. You may be looking for the pink slip item rewarded to Toons for defeating the Chief Executive Officer.
Pink Slip is a signature Cog attack used by the Downsizer.
The Downsizer takes out a pink slip.
The Downsizer then throws the pink slip at a targeted Toon.
If the attack hits, the Toon attempts to dodge the pink slip by jumping but trips over.
If the attack misses, the Toon jumps and the pink slip fades under them.
"Here's your pink slip, you're outta here!"
"I'll just slip this one in."
"Try not to slip up."
"Oops, I guess you slipped up there, huh?"
"This one will surely slip you up."
"Pink really isn't your color."
"Don't mind if you slip by, do you?"
"This one's slippery when wet."
"Watch yourself, wouldn't want to slip!"
"Are you frightened? You've turned pink!"
Name of origin
pink slip is a notice of dismissal from employment. The reason the Downsizer uses this attack is because a "down-sizer" would typically terminate those in the company of which are no longer needed or too expensive to keep.
Strangely, this attack was used by every Cog during Doomsday, along with other attacks such as Red Tape, Clip on Tie, Power Tie, and Market Crash.
The bottom of the pink slip says "With Love, Your Former Boss." Real life pink slips do not say this.
Although most of the text on the pink slip is difficult to make out of, "FIRED" and "Notice of termination" can be clearly read.
This is the Downsizer's weakest attack, since it only deducts eight laff points from a Toon at level nine.
