Janice using What'sUpDoc on a Combot.
|Description||Concentrate all energy on drumming foe sky-high|
What'sUpDoc (ガッシュアウト , Gasshu auto, lit. Gush Out?) is Janice's Level 7 tech in Chrono Cross. Upon learning this tech, Janice gains the ability to focus all her energy into creating tremendous water spouts and practically cause a selected target to be sent flying.
How to Obtain
Janice will first hold up her carrot and drum into the air as she stretches, before lowering herself to the ground and sitting down. Her drum will tumble in front of her, and using her hands, will beat it repeatedly. This action causes water to gush out underneath the selected target, which gathers in the centre before blasting upwards with such a force that it causes said target to be sent flying. As this happens, the target will sustain damage from the sheer force.
This tech probably derives its name from the catch phrase used by the popular Warner Bros character, Bugs Bunny. As Janice is portrayed as adopting a happy-go-lucky attitude towards life, much like Bugs Bunny does, the name of this tech thus fits her character perfectly. The Japanese name, on the other hand, is more literal, and instead directly refers to the water gushing out of the ground, as seen in the tech itself.
Even though this tech is technically of a Red element and should be more inclined to show animations featuring fire, it is interesting to note that it portrays water instead, which is, ironically, of the opposing element. This makes some sense, since it is heavily implied she got the tech from Spekkio (The Master of War who resided in the End of Time in Chrono Trigger. Its name means mirror and its power level [and the form it took] was reflective of the party facing him in Chrono Trigger).
