Ming the Merciless is armed to the teeth, has rank upon rank of minions to do his bidding, and is so technologically advanced that he should have no problem keeping control. Yet when he comes up against a puny earthling armed only with a service revolver he always gets his arse kicked.
on the other hand has nothing more than a half eaten carrot at his disposal, yet wins the day every time against any opposition.
Clearly a meeting of minds is required.
eg. Ming would throw the hero in to a chamber with spiked walls that will slowly come together and crush/impale said hero. The Bugs Manual says Shoot him in the head several times and THEN throw him in the spikey chamber
Ming invents doomsday device to destroy his enemies that will annihilate them when the digital device gets to zero. The Bugs Manual says Set the device to go off with 50 seconds to go thatll fool them
Ming grows goatee beard and power dresses in huge collars The Bugs Manual says Sorry thats just cheesy, theyll think you are a Death Metal band member and point and laugh. Wear bright clothes, and smile a lot, itll just give you that edge
