“Hello, my baby
Hello, my honey
Hello, my ragtime gal

Send me a kiss by wire
Baby, my hearts on fire

If you refuse me
Honey, you’ll lose me
Then you’ll be left alone

Oh baby, telephone
And tell me I’m your own.”
-Ida Emerson and Joseph E. Howard, “Hello My Baby!”

Useful Info

Bullfrogs are fast-moving amphibians that have meager offensive abilities, but which can be a threat to very low-level characters. They are usually found in the early-mid Dungeon and the Lair, but can appear as out-of-depth foes very early. Also, a couple Sewers endings contain two bullfrogs.

Tips & Tricks

A bullfrog's speed makes escaping them difficult, particularly when they're encountered in water. If you know you can't outrun them to a staircase or door that you can close, spend your actions hitting them with throwing weapons or wands. Simply running won't accomplish anything.

History

Prior to version 0.19, bullfrogs were known as giant frogs.
