Squirrel Girl Marvel Crisis Protocol Character Card Rules
We see one of the most formidable gifts from her transformation evident in the first attack this character has. The Knuckle Spike Strike is one of her most dangerous hand-to-hand weapons available and comes in at a respectable Range 3 and Strength 5. Not only will this attack allow her to gain Power equal to the Damage she deals, it also helps represent her extreme mobility and acrobatic gifts. When she rolls a Wild during the, she launches herself forward and Places within Range 1 of the target character, getting right up in their business. When she is really in trouble though, she opts to literally bury her opponent in an Army of Squirrels. This Range 4 attack only costs a mere 2 Power and hits with a Strength of 6. Do I hear you scoffing at the idea of being attacked by squirrels? Don’t let their small size fool you; when they sink their teeth into you, they are sure to leave behind the Bleed and Stun special conditions. You may even find that when she manages to summon a true horde of them (by rolling a wild!), this avalanche of squirrels can Push up to size 3 characters Short.
They really went flavorful for her rules, and her basic attack that takes no power is pretty awesome, as she can move with it. Then, she can bury her enemies in an army of squirrels which is just excellent and it gives them bleed (from all the claws and teeth) so for two power, this is pretty solid.
Let’s talk about her ever-present companion: Tippy-Toe the squirrel! Squirrel Girl’s first superpower represents her connection to her companion squirrels, the irreplaceable sidekicks in her life. Tippy-Toe Takedown! allows Squirrel Girl to spend Power equal to an enemy character’s Threat Value in order to place the Tippy-Toe token on that character. The distracting presence of her faithful companion is going to complicate the enemy’s life in innumerable ways, ensuring that they don’t get to add Critical results to their successes in attack, defense, or dodge rolls AND they don’t get to add additional dice to those rolls as a result of those Criticals. Take that, evil-doers!
All the powers are super useful and thematic, but maybe the most fun is Guardian Squirrel. She cannot get KO’d when she has the Tippy-Toe Token as her squirrel friend takes the blow for her! Then, Squirrelese is great as it can let you re-roll a bunch of stuff.
She is just a super flavorful character with a lot going for her!
