My guess is eating Prototype guy made em invincible.

Though still my fav episode is the Pokemon one.

indeed it is a very %#@$ing convenient camera

maybe toad missed his head shot roll at point blank five hundred thousand bagillion times =]

it could happen

that or they have a REALLY LOW saving throw

God mode is still on

My guess is Alex Mercer powers.

Episode was a bit weak. I'm a little bit confused as how this show can come out with epic episodes like the Dicelord/Fear ones and then occasional have stupidly gory, childish in joke fests with a little bit of gamer humour thrown in for good mesure.

ANYWAY. WILD THEORY TIME: On the subject of invunerability.

1) God Mode. Unlikely, in the episode in which they activate god mode Lund and Shanks are blocked from leaving by a warning message. The implication is that they had to switch it off. More to the point, God Mode would trash any sense of dramatic tension and just plain be a cop out

2) Mercer Inverunerbility. I thought it was likely before. Less so now. Seeing as before the implication was that Lund got one gift and Shanks got another. Memory and Regeration respectively.

3) Micheal Poison backfiring. Plausible, but seems a bit...obscure. Seeing as there's been no futher referance to it since that episode.

4) Lund and Shanks stats being high in comparison to Toads. More likely, given the amount that 19 was talking about stats and there effect on events. The two snags I see with this is that the Dicelord didn't comment on their Constitution stat, only a very high luck. The other big drawback is that they aren't in RPG world any more, so the same rules might not apply any more. Toad it's an RPG gaming abstraction, which whilst it doesn't stop him from being a bitch means he can't really have stats.

5) No damage due to friendly fire. This fits nicely assuming they are on the same side for some unknown reason, given that the TF2 abstraction fits, the guns are the same. It's weird that they died from the first shots, but it could just be dramatic lisence.

I'm going with 4 or 5 right now. To me them being on the same team is the -most- likely possibility given that Toad really resents Mario/Luigi and it implies an allience with anyone else who has the same feeling.

Am I the only one that thought it was gonna be "Braid" when the doorbell rang? D:

logic left the building un every episode thats what makes them so great

The Sorrow:

Hey don't steal my posts.

Nah go ahead and do whatever you like.

Continuity nods, go!

Heh. Liquid.

kozmo:

In short- logic has left the building

since when has logic been present? if it were logical they would have just logged in as admins and deleted everything.

I think they didn't die because friendly fire was off. Toad is probably aligned with them, but doesn't realize it yet. Just an idea.

I suppose Toads can't kill maybe? Or perhaps health regenaration? God Mode? Hacks? Alex Mercers jacket?

mabye there alex mercer power of basic invincibility kicked in.

Hehehe, this episode is right up my alley.

"Poahahahaha"

and

"so......"
"yea....."

plus

*camera moving back, color correction goes away*
"so wait, how the fuck are we still alive?"

kozmo:
What the hell was that!? the entire episode was weird. One of the weirdest things was the fact that they showed as in the episode that Toad is an extremely well trained soldier but yet from some reason, everyone think he is horrible. If it wasn't for the Michaels invincibility they would have died so many times and yet he is considered by everyone to be horribly untrained.

Seriously, did you see how fast he responded when he heard shanks? Did you see how fast he pooled out his gun and got direct hits to Shanks face even through his other hand was holding Lund and that his pistol was probably in his pocket or something? I have many other points about Toad, but the biggest point is-Toad isn't a wimp. He seems to be a war veteran but yet, from some reason he is considered a wimp.

That doesn't make sense.

and about the invincibility- I vote for god mode

edit: how did shanks look at his forehead, that's impossible, why did the new guys that were killed start screaming in horror after they were shot rather than screaming of pain? And of course there is to ask why did they scream the same before, during and after they were shot without the shot actually making a difference in the tone of the scream?

Why did toad carry so many weapons if in the last episode he was just leaving Mario that doesn't respect him, rather than just carry a pistol?

In short- logic has left the building

Not as weird as the dice lord-on a scale of 1 to 10 the dice lord is 100

Toad's level isn't high enough? Idk, I'd say the Godmode is the best bet, though. :) Awesome episode~

I vote for 3 things

god mode from ep 2.

alex Mercer is helpin' out.

Toad's small Weapons skill is to low, and heavy weapons are also too low to inflict dammage.

Carne:
Alex Mercer probably has something to do with this.

I'm thinking something along these lines right now. In Prototype there is a similer sceen, well there was a moment where a guy shot me to no effect and then I punched him into a wall, thats basicly the same thing right?

they have over life from the medic's gun healing them or this could be a dice lord thing again.

Teehee.
Seriously though, that was my explanation even before discovering your wisdom.

Well apparently they've been invincible since at least the cooking mama episode.

Was that Liquid Ocelot in the box!?

They didn't die, because Toad is useless.

It doesn't matter how well trained he is. He's useless!

Also, I love that last line!

They never did turn God Mode off after episode 2...

Father Time:

Damn, It all makes sense now!

The first thing I thought was that they still had God Mode on, so I'd go with that. Unless it is some other weirdness going on like server lag.

It was good but WTF?

No, No, No, No, That's not what happened.

Actually Lund and Shanks explained what happened last episode, I can see no other reason, apart from perhaps that neither of them is wearing hairclips...

Yes, noclip was engaged, so the bullets pass straight through.

Obviously.

Can I have my pills now?

kozmo:

Duly noted...

Maybe there was another reason that Nefarious didn't kill them? This is the 3rd time they've survived something that should have killed them.

Poor Toad XD great episode shotting tiradaltes to get your souls back

I laughed so hard when right after being shot in the face, he grabs toad and just RAILS it through the fucking wall. XD

Its comedy be honest when is there ever logic in that

I'm stuck back an episode with the Dice Lord and RPGs. Given Toad's assault, he has a high dexterity stat, with little attack strength.
Not much closure with this here episode.

I've got the Dicelord's "Neither one of us will kill the other." line running over and over in my head.

Maybe the Micheals can't be killed at all? Even before the godmode and the Mercer-Suprise?

Next next Thursday can't come fast enough!
