Notes:

  • Black Jack almost always knocks them out for one turn, though has a chance of leaving them unconscious for more. This effectively negates one attack, but does not eliminate them as a threat.
  • Sneaky Shiv will once in a while paralyze them for a few turns, though most of the time it just adds damage to the attack.
  • Effects can't be applied to ranged attacks.
