Maybe I should change Del Monte Hero to Pulped Hero

Good Idea: A gun that shoots death rays!

 

Bad Idea: A gun that shoots manta rays!

 

Johan Walbaum was a genius in more than one field, but eventually he went hopelessly insane. One manifestation of his madness was a superstitious dread of manta rays, which he called "The devilfish!" He designed a speargun that is in most respects identical to the common scuba diver's hunting weapon, but equipped with a built in sonar and targetting computer programmed to identify and target rays in general, and manta rays specifically. No one has managed to reverse-engineer the design yet, and most of the examples known are kept as curiosities.

I almost wrote it up as a Focus, but the palindromedary talked me out of it.

Worse Idea: A gun that shoots Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

 

Or for the particular vindictive single minded killer: A gun that shoots Ray.

That's like the start of 1 in 6 of my campaigns. You've all just been left holding the bag - go!
