This is another non-news post: it's just for fun!
Today I will introduce a popular コピペ from the Japanese internet forum 2ch. 1 ：水先案名無い人 ：03/12/15 15:51 ID:Bbnd8HbS Today I passed a group of elementary school students and they said "Niflam! Niflam!" to me.
What could that mean?
2 ：水先案名無い人 ：03/12/15 15:51 ID:brneuIfZ
Niflam is a spell on Dragon Quest that makes the enemy disappear
So basically they were telling you to get lost
3 ：水先案名無い人 ：03/12/15 15:57 ID:HEyc+yJ2
What's more, you don't even get experience that way So they were saying "We don't even want your exp!"
Why are you so hated OP?

So you can think it also includes the hidden message
"You stink like rotten flesh" or "You're eyes are like a dead fish"

Also, it only works on enemies whose lever is lower than your own
Let's learn Japanese!
