- The Order of the Stick
- Trigak ◀ ▶
- Panel 1
Trigak's Dragon Head: Fly Away!
Trigak's Lion Head: I'm not comfortable being grappled there!
Trigak's Goat Head: You may have won this round, Order of the Stick, but we swear our revenge on you! When you least expect—!
- Panel 2
Trigak's Dragon Head: GAK!
Trigak's Lion Head: GAK!
Trigak's Goat Head: GAK!
- Panel 3
Trigak falls to the ground, "WOOMPH!", with Belkar on his back stabbing him. He hits the ground dead, with a "SPLAT!"
- Panel 4
Belkar: Oh yeah! Who da halfling? I'm da halfling!
Haley (angrily): Belkar! He was supposed to get away!
- Panel 5
Belkar (confused): What you talkin' bout, Haley?
Haley: Duh! He was obviously supposed to be a recurring villain!
- Panel 6
Haley: I mean, he had a name! And he was in the middle of swearing to get us and our little dog, too. It's pretty clear he was going to come back.
- Panel 7
Roy: Hmmm...A goat head. Kind of.
Vaarsuvius: Excuse me?
Belkar: Well...this way we get XP from him.
Haley: Hellooo! We defeated him, we would have gotten XP anyway!
- Panel 8
Roy: "When the goat turns red, strike true." That's what my Dad said.
Vaarsuvius: Hmm. The goat did become angry—"turned red" to use the vernacular—and then Belkar indeed struck true.
- Panel 9
Roy: Ughh, if that's it, that's the most lame-ass prophecy in the long history of lame-ass prophecies.
Belkar: Umm, maybe he'll come back as a vampire or something.
Haley: No, no. Too late. We won't see him again.
- Panel 10
Close-up of Trigak three dead heads.
Elan (off-panel): Or will they?
Elan (off-panel): dun dun DUN!!!♪♪
- Panel 11
Roy: Elan! Stop doing dramatic musical cues for the dead chimera!
- Trigak reveals his prophetic name, by having its three heads yell out "GAK!" together.
- "What you talkin' about, Haley?" is possibly a reference to "Wha'choo talkin' 'bout, Willis?", Arnold's catch phrase from Diff'rent Strokes.
- "And our little dog, too" is a reference to the Wicked Witch from the Wizard of Oz.
