Cutscene Dialogue

[Lunchbox (Scary) plays in the background.]

[A black silhouette of Senpai slowly fades in against a solid red background. He yelps as he clutches to himself before intense beams burst out from his face, causing a loud, distorted scream.]

Spirit: Direct contact with real humans, after being trapped in here for so long... and HER of all people.

I'll make her father pay for what he's done to me and all the others....

I'll beat you and make you take my place.

You don't mind your bodies being borrowed right? It's only fair...

Song Effects

Whenever Spirit moves, afterimages are created, and his idle animation is glitchy and moves extremely fast.


  • Thorns' unique song effects can affect other characters by swapping Spirit out for someone else using the chart editor.
  • With a BPM of 190, Thorns is tied with DadBattle (ERECT Remix) and its own ERECT remix for the fastest song released thus far.
  • Thorns previously did not use the pixel art-style death animation and the chiptune version of the Game Over music, unlike the other two tracks of Week 6. The regular death animation and Game Over music would play instead. This was fixed in version
  • After the song ended but before the level was beaten, the vocals would repeatedly attempt to start again. This was due to the vocal track being shorter than the music track. This oddity was still present in the song's files in the Week 7 update, but the voices bug was fixed. With the player and opponent vocals being separated in the WeekEnd 1 update, the instrumental and vocal tracks no longer have different lengths.
  • Thorns coming after Roses reflects the proverb "every rose has its thorn."
  • The word "thorn" can refer to pain and distress, reflecting Spirit's situation. Additionally, "a thorn in one's side" is an idiom for something that causes persistent or constant annoyance or trouble.
