Ghastly, decapitated heads that first appeared in Konami's 1997 Sony Playstation Castlevania: Symphony of The Night (Japanese title: "Akumajo Dracula X: Gekka no Yasoukyoku", or "Demon Castle Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight") video game. Schmoos float about the book-lined corridors of the Reversed Long Library area in a haphazard manner, colliding with, and injuring, unwelcome visitors. Assuming you've encountered at least one specimen, Schmoo is catalogued as entry #99 in the Master Librarian's enemy list, where it is rather unimaginatively described as 'Monster nicknamed "schmoo"'. They are ranked at experience level 28, have 50 hit points (HP), and have a base experience point value of 1,000 (the amount you'll actually receive is dependent on what level Alucard is currently at--if you're also a level 28 character, you'll get that exact value, if you're below that, you'll get more than 1,000 experience points per Schmoo kill; on the other hand, if you're above level 28, you'll get progressively less, all the way down to a measly 1 experience point at level 43 and above). Being undead, they are particularly vulnerable to "fire" and "holy" based attacks; however, as Schmoos don't have many HPs to begin with, and a defense rating of zero, it's probably not worth the time or effort to try to take advantage of said weaknesses. After destroying a Schmoo, you might get one of two rare item drops (having a high luck rating increases the likelihood of obtaining these objects). The first, a bowl of delicious Chinese ramen noodles, can restore 30 of the hero's hit points. The second, the Crissaegrim sword, is a fearsome blade that slices enemies to ribbons with ease--indeed, this is widely regarded as the most powerful/effective weapon in the entire game. While it doesn't have the highest attack power, the sword's ability to hit multiple times with each stroke, long reach, and zero recovery time make it an edged weapon without peer.

Newsprint, tissue paper, white glue, dog hair (the animal was not harmed in acquiring it), nail polish, acrylic paint, watercolor paint, and marker.
