ahhh a battle of science v magic, always a good thing, nothing like a little healthy competition

No, it won't be enough; narrative causality dictates the fight be less one-sided. Furthermore, since the villain has created a "monster of the week" out of one of the protagonist's friends he will escape to do it again.

That moment when the bad guy gets the feeling it's not going to be that easy. ^^

heh When you have a genre savvy villain, the first thing they'll eventually mockingly ask is, "Reverse? Why would I ever include a way to REVERSE this?" That would certainly throw the heroes for a loop.

And it functions by identifying the characteristic waveforms and phases of the thaumaturgic quantum disruption and emitting identical non-signal anti-phase waveforms to disrupt the spell via destructive interference. Obviously.

@Heliotroph:

And of course only inexperienced, weak, or stupid villains use permanent magic instead of instantaneous magic.

Permanent magic: state of were-plushie super imposed over natural human state.

Instantaneous magic: were-plushie now IS her natural state!

Not sure how well delineated magical "theory" is in the MSFSTFUwhatever high school setting is, so maybe, maybe not. Just making stuff up for kicks.

Okay, two big questions I feel need answering.

Plot convenient amnesia for lycanthrope.
There actually is a very good reason for that. In most settings, lycanthrope is a curse usually created by gods or other beings embodying the darker side of nature. It's purpose of course to spread chaos and fear. Now, if someone remembers everything that happened while they were changed, they'll seek a cure or at least to restrain themselves or avoid civilization. If they don't remember what happened, they'll unknowingly cause more damage before they the evidence piles up and they figure it out. So yes, there is a very good reason for lycanthropes to have trouble remembering the incident after the fact.

Why would a villain have a reverse to a curse?
1. In case someone gets cursed he doesn't want to be, possibly himself in some cases.
2. Same reason why you don't shoot hostages, it's a potential bargaining chip.

Important Point:

The "wereplushie" thing is starting to come across more as a gimmick than plot point. The transformed are pretty much werewolves; there aren't even variants, e.g. were-catplushies or were-bearplushies. One exhibited resistance to Neko Detective's punch that could be attributed to its plushie nature, but flesh and blood werewolves would probably have the same resilience.

Dolly's nature is part and parcel of her character; she can detach her limbs and redraw her face without fuss. It'd be nice if the wereplushies exhibited something similar, e.g., losing stuffing when beat up, extreme malluability, being able "sew" back together lost body parts. I know this sounds kind of grisly, but this IS a horror arc and could easily done in a cartoonish/horror vein ala Evil Dead or Shaun of the Dead.
