Almost instant attack, if a player is where the attack hits the ground, they are launched. Else, that spades stick in for second. If a boss was hit, the attack stops. If there was no boss, then the Spade is flung upwards (Whilst still being held), and a dirt mound is left behind. Dirt mounds launch players, and are only despawned once they have done so.
The character is based on someone wearing an astronaut suit (coloured with light blues), and wearing a Lightning II helmet. They are using a normal spade.
