Phinisher

From PHIGHTING! Wiki

A Phinisher is a Phighter's strongest move, known for being able to turn the tides of a battle when used. Phinishers are incredibly powerful, unique to each Phighter, and have a significant impact on the outcome of a match. Phinishers can be used once the player has gathered enough Phinisher Points over the match.

Mechanics and interactions

Basic overview

  • The F key in the game's UI displays the player's Phinisher as a percentage between 0-100%.
  • To use an Phinisher, the F key must be at 100%.
    • A sound cue will play when a Phighter's Phinisher is ready.
    • The Phighter's horns will glow when their Phinisher is ready. This is visible to all players, allied or not.
  • The Phinisher percentage increases passively over time, as well as damaging enemies and healing teammates.

Phinishers have several mechanics and interactions:

  • On use, the player's camera will cut to a close-up of their Phighter performing a unique animation. The player cannot move during the animation.
    • The player can still take damage during the animation.
    • If the player dies before the animation completes, the Phinisher's effects are cancelled. The Phinisher points are not refunded.
    • Status effects do not stop Phinishers but will still apply to the user regardless.
    • Phighters are also immune to any force they receive.
    • The immovable status effect can displace Phighters during their Phinisher animation.
    • The player is suspended in the air for the animation's duration.
  • All Phighter's Phinisher dialogues will be displayed at the bottom-center of the screen in a format of "[PHIGHTER NAME]: Example Phighter dialogue". e.g. [BIOGRAFT]: MEET YOUR DEMISE! .
    • This is visible to all players.
    • The dialogue is color-coded to match the team the user is from.

Phinisher points

Phinisher Points is an internal value which measures the player's progress to obtaining their Phinisher. Each Phighter's Phinisher requires a sufficient amount of Phinisher points to use. The amount of Phinisher points needed differs between each Phighter, with higher values requiring more time. However, the numbers for gaining Phinisher points are same across the board.

  • Each player passively gains 1 Phinisher point per second.
    • During One Minute Left, this is reduced to 1 Phinisher point per 0.3 seconds.
    • Phinisher points are still generated even if the player is currently dead.
  • Doing damage to enemies or healing other teammates gains Phinisher points at a conversion rate of 10 damage or healing/1 Phinisher point.
    • Each source of damage can generate a maximum of 10 Phinisher points.
    • Damaging or healing yourself does not generate Phinisher points.
    • Healing other allies at full health will not grant Phinisher points.
    • Phinishers such as Biograft's Overdrive and Hyperlaser's Eviscerating Ray disable this mechanic for the duration of the Phinisher's effect.

Phinisher points have the following interactions:

  • Switching Phighters transfers the player's current Phinisher points to that character.
    • e.g. A Rocket that currently has 100/100 Phinisher points switches to Medkit. The Medkit starts with 100/150 Phinisher points.
  • Furthermore, the player will continue to gain Phinisher points even if they have more than the sufficient amount to use their Phinisher. Having excess Phinisher points affects the class-switch interaction above this bullet point.
    • e.g. A Sword with 100/75 Phinisher points switches to Medkit. The Medkit starts with 100/150 Phinisher points.
  • Using your Phinisher sets the player's current Phinisher points to 0.
    • e.g. A Rocket with 150/100 Phinisher points uses Rocket Barrage. The Rocket's Phinisher points is now 0/100.
