Ice "Freeze" is one of the four spells of the "Contain" materia, and really can paralyse enemies for a short period of time. Nanaki isn't completely clueless here, even if he is injured. :-)

Chilling Very nice ice. The eye of the critter is all angry-tastic. Oh, landed on this strip by voting on Lowroad75. Read through the archives already, love it lots. <3

This page makes me feel so cold. That ice is awesomely drawn.

Whoa. I agree, kudos on the ice. REALLY cool (pardon the pun).

Nanaki kicks butt here... although it kind of looks like he's STANDING on the growing ice... ^___^;;

Whoadang. That is GREAT ice. I have never been able to draw ice or anything remotely crystalline. I love the use of color and white lines. Very nice! I am in love.

Whoa I think this is my favorite page yet if only because of the fanastic coloring. The ice, and the dragon, especially the eye... it's amazing, I love it! =D

He may not have been completely clueless, but it was still risky :P. Paralysation isn't guaranteed with Freeze, and if that'd failed, he'd be... well, in a great deal of trouble? :P

Oh well, let's hear it for luck :)

Ha ha! That dragon looks just plain PO'ed. Awesome page! I really admire your work.Especially since I can't draw any animals whatsoever, mythical creatures, greenery, or any elemental things whatsoever. I can draw potatoes though...

Oh, Happy Easter btw to anyone who celebrates it!!!

Oh yeah! Can't draw people either.
How do you make ice so shiny?

That ice looks *amazing* and Red's pose is fantastic!

freeze looks awesome! I wonder what Ultima'll look like....?

Hopefully more than a green wave....

To be quite honest, Cosmo Memory wasn't really all THAT good :P. It never dealt more than 9999 dmg, I could deal quite a bit more with other limit breaks. I'd advise him to go for some nasty summons. Say, Knights of the Round :P

Apart from that - yes, the ice looks absolutely AWESOME. Keep it up :D

Good ol' Contain. Ice, Earth, Wind and Fire magic all in one Materia. Plus they were moderatly strong with a decent effect for the first three.

Reply strawberrylemonade (Guest), 8th Apr 2007

Um, FYI to M - SyxX and Lasharus:
Not a good Idea to cast on a dragon... thing... whatever that is. Unless I'm just being stupid and considering summons as casting in Lasharus' case.

Bit of a late response, but i only read Strawberrylemonade┬┤s response today

But I've done a bit of checking (I still have all my old saves :P) and no, Summoning does not trigger Ultima. I believe it's only magic from the contain materia that trigger it even.

Reply Enkida, 20th Apr 2007

Naw, I can tell you from painful experience that casting *anything* *at* the drag will get you eating an ultima every time. Not a flare, he goes straight to the ultima, the bastard. ;P

reflect ring also doesn't block it. you can cast cure on yourself though, and he won't mind. Anything else, however, and LOOK OUT! :)

Reply Lasharus (Guest), 22nd Apr 2007

Must've been a relatively low chance on returning of ultima then, I only ever got it with contain. Coincidence? who knows.

Oh, as a small addendum to what i said earlier about summons - i usually used Knights of the Round. that one deals 13 times 6000 dmg. The dragon has about 14000 hlth. Not much chance of a retaliation :P.

Reply Enkida, 22nd Apr 2007

True, but... I think of using KotR and/or the HP/MP absorb + damage chain something like cheating. Well, it's not, really, but it just makes everything too easy. Kinda like quickenings in FF12, heh. ;)

Reply Lasharus (Guest), 23rd Apr 2007

Point taken and noted :P

To be quite honest, after a while, I didn't use KotR anymore, mainly because it took ages and i could do far more damage myself in the same amount of time :P

Oh, and the FF12 quickenings? use 'em only on the marks. They can be hell to beat without :P
