DOJO, CASINO, IT'S ALL IN THE MIND
Lammy is the guitarist of the band MilkCan with bassist and vocalist Katy Kat and drummer Ma-san. Her story revolves around her trying to arrive on time to a concert she is supposed to play for, but instead getting stuck in a multitude of situations and having to perform the most absurd of tasks. But, thanks to a dream she had involving Chop Chop Master Onion, she knows that her guitar is in her mind wherever she goes, no matter the problem.
THE LEGACY OF LAMMY
- UmJammer Lammy
- PaRappa the Rapper 2
Opening: Lammy is about to perform on stage until the lights suddenly go dark, and a pair of glowing eyes (Polygon Man) light up, along with a laugh being heard. She appears frightened until Chop Chop Master Onion appears beside her and reminds her that she is capable of unseen power, and then says his catchphrase: "Dojo, casino, it's all in the mind." Lammy wakes up and realizes it was just a dream. She then remembers that she is supposed to play for another concert at *insert location here* in 15 minutes, and that it's all the way across town and she can't be late again. She takes off down the street, saying "Ohhh, I hope nothing nothing bad happens on the way there..."
Reason: Lammy arrives in the blue rival arena and stops to see Vibri skipping and singing. Vibri notices Lammy's guitar and says that she loves music and asks her to make music together with her. Lammy tries to decline because of her concert-related time constraints, but Vibri (exaggeratedly) get mad and declares that Lammy won't get past her until they play together. Suddenly, Lammy remembers that her guitar is in her mind and the battle begins.
Connection: Both are first-party characters who first appeared on PS1 and both are created by Nana-Oh-Sha. Their games are music-based also.
Ending: Lammy, Katy, and Ma-san are all shown about to head on stage in their performing attire when the two ask Lammy where she'd been the whole time, to which she replies "It's, um...a long story. I ran into a bunch of people on the way." Finally, just as they are about to perform, Katy asks Lammy if she's ready. She replies: "With MilkCan on my mind..." *glows with Polygon Man's power* "...I'm more ready than ever!"
Lammy would probably be around Spike's height. She would mostly retain PaRappa's agility and reliance on close-range, except she'd be a tad slower and more heavy-hitting for a more all-around experience. Her attacks would consist of simple kicks, her guitar, and even everyday objects.
- Kick, Kick, Jab!! - - Lammy shyly does a weak kick to the opponent, then a slightly stronger kick with her other foot, and then finally jab the opponent with her guitar.
- Pick! - or - Lammy plays a high note on her guitar while thrusting it forward.
- Burn! - - Lammy waves her hands in the air after playing a note, lightly knocking opponents upward with its energy. Holding the button would make Lammy rise into the air and perform the attack.
- Slide! - - Lammy does a split while playing a low note on her guitar, kicking opponents on either side of her.
- Swing! - (midair) - Lammy swings her guitar downward in the air, immediately sending opponents to the ground.
- Air Pick! - or (midair) - Same as the ground, but Lammy instead thrusts her guitar at a downward angle, stunning opponents in the air.
- Air Burn! - (midair)
- Sweep! - (midair) - Lammy sweeps the air below her with her guitar, knocking away aerial opponents below her.
- Shut Up! - - Lammy smacks opponents away with the bottom of her guitar.
- Smash! - or - Lammy slams her guitar on the ground with a K-DANG sound.
- Cry Loud! - - Lammy plays her guitar while waving it in the air, launching opponents upward.
- Solo Time! - - Lammy strums her guitar in an awesome solo, hitting nearby opponents repeatedly as the player mashes the button until they fly away.
- Air Shut Up! - (midair)
- Dash! - or (midair) - Lammy crashes toward the ground with her guitar, bowling opponents over.
- Air Cry Loud! - (midair)
- Air Solo Time! - (midair)
- Fight the Fire! - - Lammy squirts water from the fire hose, knocking players backward. Can be aimed up or down.
- Slip! - or - Lammy places a banana peel on the ground in front of her, causing opponents to trip on it.
- Toss! - - Lammy tosses MilkCan`s drummer, Ma-san into the air. She throws a few drumsticks in either direction before disappearing after about three seconds.
- Low Gear - - Lammy fires up her "BITE ME" chainsaw and extends it in front of her as the player holds the button, causing repeated flinch reactions to opponents.
- Fight the Fire? - (midair) - Lammy briefly flails around with the fire hose in the air, peppering opponents with water.
- Air Slip! - or (midair)
- Air Toss! - (midair)

- Item Pick-up -
- Block - - Lammy blocks with her guitar.
- Evade - + Left Analog Stick - Lammy cartwheels forward like PaRappa, scared.
- Lammy, Here! - (Level 1): Katy shows up behind Lammy saying "Lammy, here!" and throws Lammy's guitar to her in a boomerang fashion just as she had done for her at the beginning of the game, killing opponents in its path and returning to Lammy with a "ting!" sound.
- Auto-Pilot Off! - (Level 2): Lammy yells in terror and ducks out of the way as Colonel Fussenpepper's plane falls out of the sky and slams into the ground, killing any opponents it touches. The player can hear the colonel himself say "Eheh... whoops!" before everything disappears.
- Leave it to MilkCan!- (Level 3): The stage is transformed into the concert area from the final stage, and MilkCan is performing their song "Got to Move!!". Lammy and Katy are shown playing the "No cuttin' corners / She's on the border now" line before the camera zooms out on the line "Always at my best" to show the opponents helplessly jumping around in the foreground. Just like in the game, the player can hit the corresponding buttons to play Lammy's notes; this will cause colorful, very-hard-to-avoid lightning to strike opponents in the foreground and kill them. Lightning will still strike if the player gives no input, but it will be significantly weaker and barely score kills.
- I Am a Masta - Lammy plays her guitar to the tune of "Shave and a Haircut." Also known as "PICK BURNIN' CRY FLY, CHOP CHOKE!"
- The Guitar Rules Again - Lammy worriedly looks onward and says "D-did I do that?"
- I Really Jammed - Lammy jumps up and down excitedly and says "Yep! Who's my next challenger?"
