Harmless gray text that says "REALLY NOT FEELIN UP TO IT RIGHT NOW. SORRY." This always appears on the second turn and does not appear afterward in the battle.
After selecting the ACT, "Cheer" three times, Napstablook shows the protagonist their "Dapper blook" trick; they start crying again, but the tears move upwards to form a top hat on their head. Napstablook then stops attacking, awaiting the protagonist's response. Cheering Napstablook the fourth time will end the encounter.
Selecting "Cheer" or "Flirt" will peacefully end the battle.
Any other action will make Napstablook morose. In this state, Napstablook's attacks begin to involve an extreme amount of tears. After six turns of cheering up, the attacks lower in intensity. After eight turns of cheering up, Napstablook returns to their normal state. It is then possible to cheer them up some more and end the encounter peacefully.
