What do you think of FunFrock in LBA?

What do you think of FF in LBA? Is he really great, or is pathetic?

Even though you don't see him until the end, FunFrock is significantly improved from LBA in many ways.
Firstly, like all evil masterminds, he stays in the shadows and manipulates everyone to his will, without being directly involved himself. (A mistake he made in LBA, and since learned from.) Some say that the greatest trick the devil ever made, was comvincing the world he didn't exist.

Secondly, FunFrock looks and sounds better than he did in LBA. He looks much more sinsister with the larger girth, jutting jaw and teeth, as well as the black eye-sockets. The voice actor is also much better, as the guy in LBA just hammed it up, whereas the second FF actually sounds convincing.

Lastly, the FunFrock in LBA2 IMO was much harder to defeat, him having the forsight to have a clone of himself attack you at the same time that you were trying to beat the crap out of him. (Also, those knew Groboclones with the maces were really lethal, and vast improvement on the green and yellow ones.)

Well, that's my take on things. ADIEU! HAHAHAHA!

Regards,
Morden

Beat the crap out of everyone on the screen using the lightning spell (Kieron did that as well I believe) It will just wipe everyone away in your view.

However, in LBA FunFrock's legacy around Twinsun in the form of his police state was brilliant, and what he did in LBA2 with the help of the Emperor was not a patch on the presence of soldiers, tanks, and Groboclones in LBA.
In other words, FF was brilliant IMO in an evil sort of way, until you met him, and he sounded like a compete gimp. ( In fact, a bit like Bob the Grobo from LBA2. Hmmm...)

Morden

The lightning spell will drain all your magic when you're fighting Funfrock so I would rather use my protection spell or another weapon rather than the ring.

Morden279: Well we don't know if Funfrock himself in LBA1 was a clone, neither do we know that the Funfrock in LBA2 was real. I remember reading some of the credits for LBA1 and 2 and saw that the voice actor for Funfrock remained the same. The quality of voice-acting and recording must have improved over the years

I would have gone with the line that the FF in LBA 2 was real, and the two in the Well of Sendell were just clones. Also, I beat the first one by pushing him off the edge of the screen so he fell into the abyss. To satisfy my confusion, my thought is that he survived somehow, and knowing he could not beat you, sent his clone after you instead and escaped to Zeelich.

BTW: I CANNOT believe the voice actor for FF in LBA was the same as in LBA2. However, I was playing the playstation version, so the actor might have been different then. What was the guy's name? (From LBA2)

Regards,
Morden

I think you never actually fight FunFrock in LBA2. I expect he cleverly escaped and left you with his clones.

I think the same...

meaning we'll get a come back in LBA 3. BUT I don't want him to be the main baddy. That would be a disapointment.

I do think he's one of the best Villians in history, but I don't want him as a villan anymore (just some npc that tries to scruw nearly anything up for you is much better )

Dr Funfrock rules, but I always thought he didn't look evil enough. I bet he will make a return in LBA3 though. Maybe as a bionic bodied monster????

Hehe, Baldino is too panicky to be the bad guy

Yeah, like Atresica said, it would be better if FF wasn't the main badguy, but just some side character who likes to annoy or screw up Twinsen on the way.

In LBA1, FunFrock was the omnipresent dictator and mad scientist. In LBA2 you were never (?) aware it was FunFrock all the time until the end. I liked the mad scientist in FunFrock

Totaly agree.
Like in Monkey Island 4 where it turns out Le Chuck was working for someone else.
=
I'm still not sure Twinsen has ever met the real Funfrock.

well, not working for someone, but like Twinsen accedentily encounters FF while running through the sewers, seeing he totaly lost everything because of someone else. For some reason he decides to run with Twinsen (to get his imperium back), but does it mostly to anoy Twinsen

FunFrock bit the dust in LBA2 (I think) the clone was the one that flashed red.

Hint: Use Meca-Penguins to destroy the teleporters! (I had 13 when I completed LBA2 for the 6th time today) after destroying the telepods I had only 3! So FunFrock had to do some serious building (and there was no teleportation centre so the Groboclones must have just appeared out of thin air.

well--- kinda hard question... cause he DID rule, before Twinsen, now he's sucking big time in some dark hole somewhere waiting for lba 3, but as a game character i think that he rules!

Hmm yeah, In MI4 LeChuck was working for Ozzie Mandaril, maybe there is a guy tougher than Funfrock

Atresica: FF could just be some guy who screws up everything..heh we're giving away the LBA 2.5 script

I think you could use it as part of the plot.
Twinsen could find A FUNFROCK somewhere.
He dosn't know whether he is a clone or not, good or bad.
Of course,at first he attacks the Funfrock, but when funfrock dosn't fight back he stops.
There could be something medicaly wrong with funfrock, and you have to heal him. After healing him, he could explain part of the knowledge he has.
(The enity, its power, whether he is a clone or not).
There could be some higher enemy that the Funfrock claims he wants to defeat. Twinsen agree's to help him get something, to defect this enemy. (a powerfull item of somesort).
-
But, when Twinsen gets the item, Funfrock grabs it off him quickly (some sort of magic effect happens how)
Twinsen then kill's the funfrock, thinking he betrayed him. But in his dieing words, the funfrock explaines that the item had a booby-trap on it. Only clones can survive holding it.
So in order to get the item/device safely out, Twinsen must leave and come back to get it. Bringing with him some rebal (good) clones.
Only when he gets back, the item is missing. (together with the body of the funfrock clone).
Who took it?
Did the clone really die?
Was it a clone?
ect..ect.
Lots of plot potential.

All this talk of FunFrock clones is really starting to confuse AND annoy me. I think the next appearance FF makes should be as the REAL him. (Not just ANOTHER clone...)

Either he's real in LBA 3 or he died in LBA 2, that's my conclusion.
(Although him playing Twinsen's "partner" like John Kryten's "Sparky" in LBA 3 does have it's appeal.)

Regards,
Morden
