Recap / Moshi Monsters Super Weapon Showdown

Go To

Super Weapon Showdown is the tenth Moshi Monsters mission and the final mission of Season One.

It begins at the volcano, and Tamara Tesla is there, telling you that Elder Furi is missing. You wonder if it has something to do with C.L.O.N.C.'s Super Weapon and ask if she has any clues as to where he is. She replies that Dr Strangeglove's glove has been running around Monstro City and that it was sighted at Oh La Lane. You promise to go there and she tells you to stay vigilant as the Super Weapon launch draws near. You promise to thwart C.L.O.N.C. and then leave.

At Ooh La Lane, it is snowing and the light is dim. If you scroll, you will find Cherry Bomb standing on the ground and the glove at the top of the fence. Find an old arcade game, a tyre and a box of rubbish, then drag them onto the ground between Cherry and the glove in that order (from your inventory, the blue bag on the far right). Cherry Bomb climbs up.

A few hours later, you're at the Fiery Castle, having been led by the glove. Click on the intimidating statue. He thinks you're annoying and plans to sound an alarm. You decide to trick him by pretending to be evil. Click on any of the excuses, he'll buy any of them. He says that he'd hate to let you in, because he's the Hatekeeper and he doesn't recognise you. He then asks you who the best-est one-gloved evil-doer in Monstro City is. Tell him it's Dr. Strangeglove. He asks what you'd do if you found a snowy moshling on Mount Sillimanjaro. Say, "Kick it down Mount Sillimanjaro" (of course, you wouldn't really do that, but what's he to know?). He asks who he dislikes the most and reply that it's Elder Furi's gatekeeper. Then, he lets you in.

Inside the castle, lava is leaking, a Jolly Tubthumper (who actually looks sad) is drumming, and glumps are mining for Rox. Click on places to sneak in without being seen by the eye-cam. If you get seen, you'll have to start again.

The stairs lead to a room where Moshlings are being turned into Glumps, and two robots, Sprockett and Hubbs, are arguing over the machine. Sprockett wants a maintenance robot, which gives your monster the idea to dress up as one. Look for parts from the rubbish pile. Collect an antenna, some plastic tubing that resembles arms, and a pen, then open your inventory and use them to draw on a cardboard box. Then, click the box, put it on, and disguise yourself as a robot. Scroll right and talk to Sprockett and Hubbs. Tell them that you're a Boxomatic 2.5 Deluxe, the latest model. They think your face looks weird, so you tell them that it was made from "cardboardinium" and prototype all-seeing secret ink at the last minute. They then tell you to fix the Glump-a-tron's fuses. Click the fuse box (it has a lightning bolt on it) and click to unscrew the screws. Then, use the mouse to move the tech and get the fuse out before the time runs out. Now, the machine turns Glumps back into Moshlings. Open your inventory and use the pen on the blueprints. They originally say, "Sun Smasher 9000, Turbo rocket booster, Liquid Rox powered core, Rock Hard PVC, Doom Fist, Navigation system, Rugged rudder", but you use the mouse to rub it all out and rewrite it as "Unscrew Turbo rocket booster, Liquid socks powered core, Jelly filling, Fist of fun, Rubber Chicken, Cardboard Rudder" and draw a silly face on the C.L.O.N.C. logo. Then, click the door to leave.

Inside, Dr Strangeglove has Elder Furi and boasts that Monstro City will belong to C.L.O.N.C. Simon Growl is having second thoughts. Then, you arrive, but Strangeglove recognizes you. You demand that Strangeglove release Elder Furi, but he fires Glumps and bombs at you. Use your mouse to avoid the bombs but deflect the Glumps. Then, Elder Furi escapes. He thanks you and says he's fine and you tell him about sabotaging the machine. Strangeglove and Elder Furi start arguing, with the latter calling the former "Lavender Troggs". Elder Furi has you leave. Meanwhile, they argue, and reveal that Strangeglove used to be nice when he was in Supermoshiversity but has since turned evil, despite evil never winning. They launch the weapon.

Back in the Glumpatron room, all the Glumps are turning back into Moshlings. Leave in the left door.

In the previous room, click the Tubthumper. He says that he was forced to drum for the miners, and you take him with you to escape. Climb the stairs on the left.

Back in the castle, the weapon gets launched, but it crashes and bonks both a UFO and the castle, which breaks and so C.L.O.N.C. evacuate.

Outside the castle, you admit to the Hatekeeper that you're a Super Moshi, then you adopt the Jolly Tubthumper, whose name is Wallop, and head off to the volcano despite neither of you knowing if Elder Furi's all right.

Tell Tamara about what happened, and she's not seen Elder Furi, but when you click on the stairs in the Volcano, a large stone which grants Rox is seen. Then, you get congratulated and the Super Moshi March plays.
