* You get these messages for attacking opponents from choice encounters. If the choice encounter is a 1 Evil action (eg. gives Cool Coin), you get the former message, if it is a 2 Evil action (eg. gives Cold Coin), you get the latter. Fighting from choice encounters that don't count as evil just use the regular "you snap…" message.
** Uses Etheric Power, not Stealth Power to increase damage.

The Spectral Damsel seems to be a special case; you can also learn the technique from running away from her.
