|Description||Undead King of Itches and Irritations|
The Itch King is an undead monster with the ability to cause non-stop itching and swelling. Even though he was formerly a hero, he has the head of a mosquito instead of your typical skull. He has a strong hatred for the Vanillain.
After being force-fed to death by his former god, the Vanillain, the hero who would soon become the Itch King did not rest peacefully. Even though the Vanillain vaporized his body (before the fallen god became obsessed with ice cream), the skeleton miraculously remained, although it was burnt to a point where the bones were gray, and his right hand only had his pointer finger left. His guild gave him a proper burial and avenged him by having his former god banished. But, that did not satisfy the formerly alive hero. He wanted to get revenge himself. So, he took control of his skeleton, dug out of his grave, and looked for ways to regenerate his own body(So he could get his revenge as a fully restored hero). However, he knew that because he is now undead, he could never mingle with other heroes like he always had. So, he decided to eavesdrop on witches, and overhear their secrets. From which, he did learn many spells, including one to regenerate a skeleton into a human body. After receiving this new information, he stole a cauldron from a shop in a nearby town (at night, so nobody would see him), and retreated into a cave. Then, he gathered the right ingredients for his spell, a hero's dead body (him of course), several monsters parts that are usually used for labs, and a golden brick. And, his ritual seemed to go well except for one thing: As the skeleton was climbing into the now boiling cauldron, a mosquito would not stop buzzing around him. This, of course, was extremely annoying and he swatted the insect into the cauldron as fast as he could. This, of course, was a big mistake. The golden brick was reshaped into a giant backscratcher and a golden crown with a green gem. His skull morphed to look like the head of a mosquito, and a tattered cloak formed around his body. Instead of becoming a hero again, he became a lich with the skull of an insect. He saw his reflection in the cauldron's boiling water and realized his mistake. From that point on, he knew he could never be a hero again. But, he noticed that he could create packets of itching powder out of thin air, and he knew his new form was probably a lot better than being human, so crowned himself the Itch King and decided to roam the lands giving heroes and monsters the most annoying and torturous form of pain, nonstop itching. In fact, it became his new priority, and he completely forgot about the Vanillain. To this day, he roams the lands making everyone he meets scratch themselves and try to get rid of all of the itching he gave them. Sometimes, though, he can be seen drinking beer at taverns in Monstro City and Monsterdam.
The Itch King possesses several unique abilities. He can bite his enemies like how a mosquito bites someone, and cause them to itch nonstop wherever he bit them. He can also, teleport, hover, and cast magic(typically using the ones that make his targets start itching). And of course, his most deadly attack, his ability to generate packets of Itching Powder and make someone suffer for hours. Of course, he has to open the packets manually, which is quite the disadvantage, as it may take a bit. Sometimes, he may ask the hero for scissors if he has trouble doing so. He also magically revives immediately after a hero who defeated him is a full milestone away from his body, so death is not really an issue for him.
Also, the fact that he crowned himself king can tell someone how much of an ego the Itch King has. In fact, the Itch King thinks that, because he is a king, that means he is a boss monster. In reality, he is not. He's just a mutated lich who crowned himself king (probably because he noticed he was wearing a crown on his head). So, he has a tendency to bring a portable record-player that plays a special "battle music" that he made for himself. This can be advantageous for him, since the boss music he made is actually pretty good (despite having pretty horrible-sounding instruments) and it may distract the hero. However, it can also motivate a hero to beat him to the ground, but that doesn't stop him from playing the song on loop. Many gods speculate that this behavior comes from the fact that many heroes have their own theme song, and he seems to retain some of the behaviors heroes have. One way to end a fight against him is to break his record player (This makes him pretty angry and he may throw five-packets worth of itching powder at his opponent or beat them with his backscratcher, but he will eventually leave, storming off with his broken record player.) As a warning, play along with his belief that he is a boss monster. If a hero tell him that he is not one, he will kill them instead of just making them itch (Other than offering him Vanilla Ice Cream, it is the only way you can make him intentionally kill you).
As advice, any hero who wants to befriend him has to do these three things:
- Find other people trying to get rid of whatever endless itching the Itch King gave them funny. (This means, laugh with him when you see someone on the ground covered in itching powder)
- Prank others with itching powder.
- Invite him for a drink of beer.
- Compliment his battle music.
- Regenerates after death
- Can bite like a mosquito
- Creates itching powder out of thin air
- Can cause extremely mild, but endless pain
- Skilled at magic
- Finds everything he does funny
- May distract heroes with his "boss music"
- Anything that can break bones
- Mentioning his former guild, and members of his former guild
- Reminding him of his days as a hero
- Often gets fined for littering
- Telling him that he is not a boss monster
- Vanilla Ice Cream
