Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This skill is a reference to the Knights of Ni in the 1975 movie classic Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
  • In the instant kill version of the standard use, the player shouts 'Ecky ecky ecky ecky ptang zoom boing!' instead of 'Ni!'.
  • In the no effect version of the standard use while in range of a living target, the player shouts 'Noo!' instead of 'Ni!'.
  • When giving a 4th stack, you shout Peng!, and when giving an 8th, you shout Neee-wom! instead of shouting Ni!.
