This is Sharks vs. Pods–The Boss Battle! It is a spinoff to its related counting game. The Sharks' goal is to eliminate all the Pods & the Pods' goal is to eliminate all the Sharks.
If your username starts with the letters A-M or numbers, you're a Shark! If your username starts with the letters N-Z or symbols (hyphen, period, etc.), you're a Pod!
Optional: You can switch teams but you may only switch once every 8 hours. You can't switch other users.
You may only vote once every 3 hours. After eliminating a character or unlocking 2 bonus locked characters, it will go down to 2 hours & remain that way until final showdown. At the final showdown, it is 1 hour.
You may use 6 HP to hurt/heal characters with. After eliminating a character or unlocking 2 bonus locked characters, it will go up to 14 HP. At the Final Showdown, you may use 20 HP.
If I or any staff kudos your post, your vote is counted.
The max a Shark can have is 220 HP. The max a Pod can have is 260 HP. The reason for the Pods having an HP increase is because there is 1 less Pod.
You may not hurt/heal neutral characters.
You may also heal Reg, Mr. Krabs, Fruit vendor, or Gary until they reach enough HP to be unlocked. You may not hurt them. Once they reach 30 HP they will be unlocked & will then become a neutral character.
You may not hurt/heal them once they're neutral but you may activate them before casting your vote. No user may use them if another user used them less than 3 days ago.
The Final Showdown does not occur unless there is only 1 Shark or 1 Pod left in the game. If the last remaining member is a Shark, SpongeBob will enter the game & if they're a Pod, Squidward will enter. They will have loads of HP to make sure this battle will be tough!
Only the Cops & Internal Affairs are automatic. By automatic, that means they generate their abilities once a day by me and cannot be used in votes.
The Cops can regenerate health to 1 random Shark & 1 random Pod.
Internal Affairs can deduct health to 1 random Shark 1 & 1 random Pod.
They may also do other unexpected things, such as…well, it's a surprise!
Gary can stun users, making them wait 8 hours to vote. To use him, say "Gary and (insert user here)" before posting your vote.
Fruit vendor can disable characters from being hurt. Example: "Fruit vendor and Pod 1" means no one can hurt Pod 1 for 24 hours. Note that you may not use Fruit vendor if the character is already maxed out. To use him, say "Fruit vendor and (insert character here)" before posting your vote.
Mr. Krabs can disable characters from being healed. Example: "Mr. Krabs and Ronnie" means no one can heal Ronnie for 24 hours. To use him say, "Mr. Krabs and (insert character here)" before posting your vote.
Reg can double the amount of HP a team can use for 24 hours. For example, if you could vote w/6HP and a user on the Sharks team uses Reg, the team can use 12HP until 24 hours is up. To use him say, "Reg and (insert your team here)" before posting your vote.
They also have the next person to post after me make a decision: EITHER they can add 20 HP to any character of their choosing, have Reg immediately unlocked, or be able to use 2 of the already-unlocked characters on their next turn.
