What's a fork doing here?
Level Requirement: 1
- The Fork item, at one point, used to cause increased damage to the Octocat enemy. This enemy also used to drop a Fork when defeated. These former traits are in reference to the phrase "forking a repository", in which a copy of a repository is created for experimentation. The Octocat enemy is itself a reference to the Octocat mascot of GitHub, a Git repository hosting website, so using the Fork item on Octocat was a more effective way to conduct a battle, just as forking a repository could be a more effective way to start a project.
