    You do have problems. Though I'd be a flake if I could afford to do so.

    The bigger question is, in a town that size, how did people not notice ponies going missing?

    I now want to see Jurassic Park with mages.

    You have selected tiny, tiny horses.

    Get kicking.

    ...More seriously, the horses are probably slower. They have scaled down speed whilst the ducks is scaled up and also it can fly.

    So.
    ...scaled down, the Horses would be hilariously weak compared to creatures of their size, and scaled up, the Duck would be hilariously stronger. In reality, the Duck is supposed to lose relative strength and the Horse is supposed to gain it. <_<

    So the horses get shafted, basically.

    I mean, scaling up the flight speed of the Duck, the horse sized one could move at several hundred miles an hour. oO

    To be fair, if we're going to apply physics, then the Duck can't even bear it's own weight in the first place, even if it's strength gets scaled up.


    GAME OVER.

    It's amusing that this is the first boss they have to fight. It's a nice way of implying that they're screwed.

    Lack of dramatic music.

    ...well that and the lack of the ascension not being shown as a proper animation.

    Also, Jake looks ridiculous.
    Yeah. It seems to be intentional though, as the panel following it seems to clarify.

    That last part is the real reason for preferring to fight the duck.

    It's weight is cubed, but the cross-sectional area of its legs is only squared, so they snap under its weight. Its wings would never get the increased mass off the floor, so it just stays where it is, like, in the truest sense ever, a sitting duck.

    Sure it's still strong, but you don't even have to fight it. You just sit and wait for its heart to give out from trying to pump blood round its oversized body.

    Easy victory.
    Yes, I know the voices aren't real. But they do have some VERY good ideas....

    Conversely, the horses would be pretty strong and fast, though their physiology would have to be modified to ensure they don't die of asphyxiation or something.

    That being said, I think Omegalith intended that the Duck could at least move around and snap/claw at you, even if it wasn't very quick.

    Then again, I also assumed that we could have ammo. In the absence of which I'd have to use a spear or something to beat the horse-duck.



    ...man, this entire discussion would be so weird if we swapped a single letter.

    Okay, fine: you want real animals so we can stop arguing the square cube law?

    100 Eohippus

    or

    1 Argentavis Magnificens

    Round One: FIGHT!
    A Flock of Sheep.
    A Pack of Wolves.
    An Inconvenience of Heroes.

    Well, tiny horses are probably smaller than the Eohippus, and the giant ducks are larger than the Argentavis Magnificens, and that's about all we can reliably say about them.

    Now a spear will still give me reach over the bird, so I should still be able to take either of them with minimal discomfort.



    This entire thing reminds me of the lucky times in Heretic 2 when you get turned into a giant chicken by accident and have great fun romping around pecking the other players to death. Fun times.

    Why would you have a spear? Are you in the habit of carrying spears around in case you're assaulted by prehistoric or missized wildlife?

    Pretty much.

    The only times I haven't carried a spear with me was when there were no such wildlife in the area. <_<

    ...

    Though to be fair, a powered up bladestaff is probably far superior to a spear considering the damage it can do and even those don't help you against giant chickens with 999 hitpoints that can OHKO you. The Argentavis Magnificens is presumably not that tough though.

    Having observed my tiny nephew intensely for a while, I have come to realize several facts about babies:

    1) They have an impossibly large capacity to absorb and retain information about the world around them, even more so than I originally thought.
    2) They are utterly sociopathic.
    3) Their senses are extremely sharp in specific things, but what is really impressive is their ability to distinguish between tiny differences in countenance and voice.
    4) They can be quite adorable when they want to be.

    So in other words, they're remorseless sociopaths with genius level mental capacity and superhuman senses, all of which is hidden behind a veil of innocent adorableness. Yep.
