Bamboo Cane is the level four Toon-Up gag. It succeeds the Lipstick but precedes the Pixie Dust.


The Bamboo Cane can be obtained once the toon has earned 800 Toon-Up skill points. As with all Toon-Up gags, the Bamboo Cane has medium accuracy.

The Bamboo Cane heals targets all toons, other than the user, in battle. The minimum heal is "40" laff points to one toon, "20" to two toons, and "13" to three toons. The maximum heal is "45" to one toon, "23" to two toons, and "15" to three toons. When grown on tree and is organic, the maximum heal is increased by four, totaling to "49" laff points.

In the event that the bamboo cane misses, it will still restore between "8" and "10" laff points depending on its skill points and organic status, and the laff is distributed amongst the other toons. This will result in a restoration of "8" to "10" laff points for one toon, "4" to "5" laff points for two toons, and "3" laff points for three toons.

When first obtained, the maximum capacity a toon can carry at once is five. Obtaining newer Toon-Up gags increases the carry capacity, maximizing to a total of fifteen carry capacity.

In equation form: $ \frac{X - Y}{(M - O)} $

  • X represents the skill points for the next gag
  • Y represents the starting point of this gag
  • M represents the maximum laff heal
  • O represents the original starting point

To determine the next increase in laff heal for a Bamboo Cane, take the number of skill points required to obtain the next gag and divide it by the number of increase (the maximum laff heal - the original laff heal). You should therefore get an estimate.

The Bamboo Cane equation:

$ \frac{2000-800}{45-39}=\frac{1200}{6}=200 $

For every 200 skill points, the Bamboo Cane's healing attributes increase.
