Monsters Entry 16: A rare species of frog that's filled with explosive swamp gas.
|Damage:||• 1 (Contact)|
• 10 (Explosion)
|Notes:||• Explodes like a bomb when killed.|
• Turns into a regular Frog if it touches water.
Fire Frogs are very similar to regular frogs, but with one important difference - After being killed, their corpses will explode after a short delay.
While alive, they should just be dealt with exactly how you would a regular Blue Frog.
It is important not to let a Fire Frog explode inside a Shop. The Shopkeeper will blame you for this, even if the frog was killed by an environmental hazard such as a Tiki Trap. If possible, always try to pick up the frog's corpse and throw it clear of the shop before it explodes.
If a Fire Frog falls into a pool of water (even in a primed state after being killed), it will be extinguished and turn into a regular blue Frog. In doing so, a Fire Frog corpse that is about to explode may be revived as a living Blue frog, and must be killed again. It is possible to pick up the corpse before it explodes and jump into water, this will allow the player to hold a Blue Frog, throwing the Blue Frog will cause damage to the player, and it can't be carried between levels.
If eaten by a Mantrap, both will explode after a short delay.
Fire Frog corpses cannot be sacrificed to Kali at an Altar, and attempting this will merely destroy the altar and invite Kali's anger.
