Favorite Attack Animation

As I play through W101, I noticed just how awesome most of the attack animations are (In other words, what happens in the middle of the field when a spell is used). I've always been fascinated by the look of these attacks as it's executing. What are your favorite attack animations. Not attack itself, but the animation. Narrowing these down was no easy task, and I couldn't narrow it down to just one. I had to do 3 from each school. Tell me your favorites. Here are mine (In no particular order):

Balance: Locust Swarm, Power Nova, and Crusade (90 damage weak attack)
Storm: Kraken, Storm Bats, and Stormzilla
Ice: Blizzard, Evil Snowman, and Colossus
Fire: Fire Dragon, Meteor Shower, and Heck Hound
Life: Regeneration, Gnomes, and Spinysaur
Myth: Celestial Calendar, Minotaur, and Medusa
Death: Deer Knight, Avenging Fossil, and Scarecrow

Why do you mean, "not the attack, but the animation"?

I mean, some people will say "so and so attack is my favorite because of what it does" I don't care about what it does because I already know what it does

Agreed with Crunkatog, but not my favorite.

Well something about Judgement is funny. How she appears and says something that sounds like "HELLO" and then taps the scale and gives damage

*appears*"HELLO" *gives damage*

lol

Any time a sprite casts a spell, it looks like they are doing Shoryuken, except it's sort of backwards - when Ryu does Shoryuken, the damage hits as he is jumping up. When sprites attack, they spin in the air but the spell isn't launched until they are coming back down again.

Whenever Belloq does a natural attack, it looks like he is winding up for a Hadoken and pulling the fireball out of his lapel pocket. But after that, the way he tosses at you no longer looks like the classic Hadoken.

The ravens in Ravenscar are extra cheeky - every spell they cast has them flicking it off their wingtips as though they are saying "Run along now, you're bothering me."

Water lurkers and other roundish fishmen (riverclaw guard, etc) roll up in a ball and hit you like a certain Amazon Basin fighting game hero. If there was a transformation for this monster type for storm, that gave all my wand attacks THAT animation, I would probably just direct deposit my paycheck to KI just so I could have it permanently.

Pretty much all the Polymorph Gobbler spell selections are an instant crack-up when you see them. Fish breath, food fight, digestive distress, etc.

Yes, It just makes you laugh out loud when a disturbing little goblin thing starts puking all over everybody. I love being sarcastic.

How can Crusade be your favorite balance animation. Are there two different ones? The one I saw sucks.

He means how it looks like not the damage.

Maybe he's actually saying "Keelhaul ya"?

The skeletal warriors and pirates are droll, muttering to themselves as they swash and buckle.
