>>117011055 is more or less correct but the Ch sounds like the ch in loch e.g. Loch Ness

It's right at the top of his wiki page. OP please.

So, did the original Cu have something similar to Gae Bolg?

They literally say it in the VN you dum dum.

yeah he had Gae Bolg

Yes Cu had the Gae Bulga in his myths
>>
>>117011744
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%A1e_Bulg
>The Gáe Bulg (also Gáe Bulga, Gáe Bolg, Gáe Bolga), meaning "spear of mortal pain/death spear", "gapped/notched spear", or "belly spear", was the name of the spear of Cúchulainn in the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology.

Nope. Nothing.

>>117011803

Guys, I obviously meant the attack, not the lance.
>>
>>117011744
What I know is, that the only way his instant kill works is, that he has to stand in a river a throw it with his toes, so that it penetrates through the anus of the enemy.
It could be not completely the same but no I am not joking. that's how I heard it

This song is supposedly sung in Irish buy you'd never know if someone didn't tell you.

For germanfags youd spell it like Kuchen.

Kuchelin = Cu Chulainn
>>
>>117011957
Oh, sorry, I didn't know this was an attack.
I know a little more than nothing about the Fate series that's where I'm supposed to leave this thread, right?
>>
>>117011957
I don't even know what the source materiel is for OP, but the Gae Bolg was a special spear given to him by Scatha the war goddess for finishing his training, it could only be thrusted by foot and if pierced the victim would have their body filled with thorns, it's been a long time since reading his stuff but that should be mostly right

Scathach wasn't a goddess.
Also if I remember correctly it was made from the spine of a sea serpent
>>
>>117012130
it reverses cause and effect. Basically goes "I will hit the heart" and that's what happens. It doesn't matter where he aims, the effect is always the same. It's unblockable by anything but sheer luck
>>
>>117012131
>I don't even know what the source materiel is for OP,

Fate/stay night. About Gae Blog in that series:
http://typemoon.wikia.com/wiki/Lancer_(Fate/stay_night)
>Lancer's weapon, the Gáe Bolg, a cursed spear which is said to inflict wounds that do not heal as long as the spear remains in the world. His weapon itself has two main techniques which can be classified as separate Noble Phantasms, the first of which reverses causality to always strike the heart, and the second of which unleashes the full potential of the curse to strike the enemy by hurling the spear with overwhelming power. He is an expert monster exterminator, giving him an advantage over someone like Rider due to her Gorgon monster alignment.[4] Lancer also qualifies for the Berserker and Caster classes. He had gone berserk several times in life, and he takes great pride in having the ability and knowledge enough to qualify for the Caster Class due to his knowledge on Runes.[1][5]

Well, they ignored that.

They also ignored that every wound Cu inflicted never healed unless he aided in the healing.

I should also mention Medb (I meant Medb not Scatha(ch)) is OG waifu materiel and I should not have been given this as a child
>>
>>117011957

There's some shit about it never missing, but I think that's because it spreads out into thorns and hunts down the target, not because of cause/effect shit

I forget honestly
>>
>>117012570
It still has anti-healing properties in the VN I believe, just not as strong as Deermud's lance.
>>
>>117012654
There's something he does later in UBW that basically sends out a rain of thorns.
>>
>>117012673
Yes bug Gae Bolg has absolutly nothing to do with the anti-healing
>>
>>117012514
Would Lugh be a better Lancer than Cu Chullin?
>>
>>117012709
Well it's not like he uses any other weapon so whatever
>>
>>117012725
Yes he would.
Odin as Lancer/Caster double summon would beat him though
>>
>>117012725
He's a god, so absolutely, but I'm pretty sure gods don't qualify as Servants. However, Lugh's "sword" Fragarach shows up in F/HA
>>
>>117012767
That's also Cu's sword
>>
>>117012725
Impossible, Cu Chulain crossed the faggot bridge that didn't want to be crossed.
>>
>>117012818
given to him by Lugh
>>
>>117012867
Yes but it's still "Cu's" Noble Phantasm had he been summoned as Saber or in Ireland
>>
>>117011621
Most people wouldn't know him from that
