Marguerite the Clueless Pink Cow

Marguerite the clueless pink cow


Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

The pink cow was an in-joke, about the Gamemaster signalling to a disruptive player they should tone it down by having a pink cow inexplicably fall on their character. Though I don’t think it actually happened in a game.

For some reason I ended up writing the cow up, and Pufnstuf had her appear in a webcomic. Calibrate the cow cannon !


Powers and Abilities

Marguerite, a.k.a. the Clueless Pink Cow, is just an extra-dimensional cow of the ordinary kind. Her story use is very simple. If you spot an outrageously munckiny character, the Clueless Pink Cow will materialize in the sky and drop on the munchkin.

Given variation on the initial speed, the impact can range from 05 AP (a few meters) to 29 AP (shot at 95% of C from a mass driver on the Moon).

If the munchkin does not take the hint, keep dropping cows on him. You have an unlimited supply of cows.


History

Mooh.

PS : The rumors stating the she received barbarian commando training in the Secret Cow Level are hogwash.


DC Universe History

This is Monitor’s cow. He bought it on the black market. Unfortunately, when Monitor died in Crisis on Infinite Earths, Ambush Bug adopted the cow.

When he was canceled, The Heckler fed the cow in a nearby pasture in his city for a bit. Heckler set the cow free to roam when he got canceled. She recently showed up in Warrior #29 and in Kingdom Come.

During Underworld Unleashed, Neron promised the cow immortality, but she opted to eat her candle instead. During the Final Night, the poor cow went on an interstellar journey with Lobo and hasn’t been seen since. Rumor has it she’s hanging out with his dolphins.
