Fighter uses his telekinesis for swords to will the blade into his hand...

Cast Appearing[]



Fighter Urgh. It feels like I've been stabbed in the head, dragged into a cave of ice, hung upside down for days, and left for dead.
Fighter If only there was some way for me to get us down and save my friends' lives.
Fighter notices his sword stuck on the ground, glimmering with a small TING!
Fighter Ah-ha!
I'll use my innate and thus far undisclosed supernatural affinity for all things "sword" to will that blade into my hands.
Fighter (struggling) Hurg!
Fighter Okay, that made me dizzy.
Either I just made up these powers, or...
I must not be trying enough!
Fighter HEARGH!
Fighter Must've blown out my ears.
Fighter 'Cause all I can hear is this stupid loud rumble.
Cut to the Ice Cave Entrance! getting caved in by an avalanche. The cave-in made the cave pitch-black.
Fighter Oh, it stopped.
Also, it gets dark fast around here.


  • The fact that Fighter tried to move his sword through telekinesis is a reference to Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, when Luke Skywalker had to use the Force to retrieve his lightsaber and cut himself off, suspended upside down himself.
