"Hey, short stack! This ain't a place you wanna be hanging 'round."
Chips Bettigan, Death screen

Chips Bettigan is a male stack of blue, yellow, and red poker chips wearing a cowboy hat that appears in the boss fight with King Dice when landing on Space 2. Chips Bettigan's voice can be heard before and throughout the battle.

Intro

Before the battle begins, King Dice stacks Chips Bettigan up piece by piece.

Battle

This boss has only one known attack: he travels from one side to another by moving pieces of him to damage the player, but the attack is rather easy to avoid because of how slowly the chip stacks are moving. As the battle goes on, Chips begins to make noises such as laughing.

When Chips is defeated, he moans in pain, his top part falls apart, his hat falls off, and his two bottom parts fly away. His eyes are shown to be on separate chips, though his eyes are usually seen on the same chip.

Personality

Chips Bettigan is a very persuasive being who seems to enjoy fighting, as evidenced by the shouting of "All Right!" He also enjoys talking tough, as evidenced by his death screen.

Trivia

  • Chips Bettigan's design and name are based on poker chips and are references to bets used in various gambling games, especially card games.
    • Chips Bettigan's Stetson-style hat, galloping motion and Southern accent are allusions to Texas hold 'em, a variation on poker.
  • This boss's attack pattern resembles the Yellow Devil from Mega Man games, where its body breaks apart and recomposes into a new location trying to hit the player en route.
  • His last name "Bettigan" could mean "Bet again".
    • His full name could also be a reference to this game's music composer, Kris Maddigan, because their names seem very similar.
  • Chips is seen with four blue poker chips during the battle, but an error during his death screen depicts him with six blue poker chips. This was presumably intentional, referencing the animation color errors in 1930's cartoons.
  • Chips Bettigan and Mr. Wheezy are the only King Dice mini bosses in the game that can be heard speaking, as Chips says "Alright!" and "Yeehaw!" after King Dice stacks him up and can also be heard while using his attack. He can also be heard yelling "Woo-hoo!" after reforming.
  • Chips Bettigan's death screen is a reference to the strict "No Minors" Policy in casinos, as evident by the "Short-stack" Remark.
