A humorous "weapon" created by Gil and used in his mock duel with Zeetha. It isn't particularly lethal, but that's OK; it's visually spectacular, which is the whole point, because the goal of the duel is to draw a crowd that can see him entering Castle Heterodyne to rescue Agatha, preferably intimidating Zeetha, Krosp and The Unstoppable Higgs to the point that they don't join him. Rather than the usual death ray directed energy, it fires sporks, Gatling-gun style. It's fair to say that this weapon doesn't exactly wipe the leer off Zeetha's face.

Gil calls it the "Hand-Cranked Runcible Gun," to give it its full name. To the untrained eye, it bears a striking resemblance to a sausage grinder.

It also bears the possibly rare distinction of having reverse-onomatopoeic ammunition, as the ejection of the sporks causes a "Spork! Spork! Spork!" sound.

Possibly relevant outside information Edit

"Runcible" is a nonsense word invented by Edward Lear.
