** Done beautifully by Caliborn Late into the comic's sixth act, a villainous (and [[FourthWallObserver metafictional]] character discovers a magical Crowbar and proceeds to use it to beat a harmless, if unsettling, clown. The narrator is disgusted and plays terrible music to punish the villain, but the AntiMagic gives the crowbar the ability to attack the website's format, and send links across the page flying around. He uses this to keep the narrator in-line and protest any story development he objects to.[[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/007395/ here.]]
