"He got tired of being a normal enemy."

Hot Rash is one of the fifteen Hosts featured in HOURS.

Not to be confused with the enemy, Hot Rash.

Description

Hot Rash can be obtained by clicking/tapping the bottom left corner of the second page of the selection screen. His range varies, and he has 24 of the same upgrade, All of them being named "Hot Rash" with the R in "Rash" being another random letter. His true name is Hot Trash.

Appearance

Hot Rash wears a gray shirt and darker gray pants. His face glows like other hosts, and he has glowing sphere inside his chest. He wields a classic Roblox Linked Sword, which another lodged in his head (The Roblox hat "Stage Prop").

Playstyle

Since there are no other upgrade paths, Hot Rash's play style is always just about the same as his namesake enemy: Parrying obnoxiously in tandem with other attacks.

Hot Gash (M1) is Hot Rash's main attack, a single overhead slash. It deals moderate damage with an above-average windup time and staggers enemies, and is safest to use after parrying.

Hot Slash (M2) is a combo attack with about the same windup time as Hot Gash. It attacks with the sword 3 times, staggering on each hit.

Hot Flash (SHIFT) is the same as the enemy's infamous parry move, deploying a forcefield after a short delay which prevents all damage and staggers melee attackers. It remains active longer than the parries of other hosts, and can be used twice in quick succession. If used during another attack, the shield will deploy immediately when the attack ends. A successful block with this skill will also shorten the cooldown of Hot Slash.

Hot Kalash (Q) is Hot Rash's primary damage source. It gives Hot Rash 2 AK-47s with which he fires 30 projectiles each with a heavy spread over a span of 10 seconds, staggering enemies with the first shot. While they deal very little damage, the overall damage output of the attack is quite high if a majority of the projectiles hit their target. (NOTE: By using this ability to kill a Fiend Rider inside its car while time is stopped with a tempo, the player unlocks the Host Hellion.

Hot Rash only has one upgrade, known as Hot Cash (The first letter of "Cash" will be shown as any random letter other than O or U). While he begins the game rather weak, each upgrade increases his damage by 100%, allowing his offensive capabilities to eventually surpass his defensive potential.

Chromashift

Trivia

  • While he does stay true to the rule of 7 letters, Due to having a space in his name, Hot Rash is the only Host in the game with an 8-character long name.
  • Hot Rash's Chromashift changes the colors of the neon in his face and chest, his two swords, his gun, the shield, and also slightly changes the shirt color.
    • The color of Hot Rash's sword and the effects he emits (via sword slash and shielding) are the complementary colors to the neon on his body, making him the only host whose attack effects do not match the selected color when Chromashift is applied.
  • Half Horse's Life Steal ability can deal damage even when Hot Flash is active.
  • Hot Rash's AK47s do not turn black while Mood is in effect, unlike everything else about your host.
  • Hot Rash appears as a tower in the game Critical Tower Defense.
    • He can be obtained by clicking the metal bar below the server timer 20 times every time the server timer updates.
    • The tower very much functions closely to Hot Rash. It has stun immunity by using Hot Flash when it reaches a certain level, uses Hot Slash once it reaches a certain level, has Hot Kalash once it reaches a certain level, and obtains upgrades of Hot Cash (and of course the variants) from levels 5-9.
      • The only difference is that Hot Rash gains an exclusive ability at max that enchants his sword, so that it deals 2,000 damage over 25 seconds.
      • More information can be found here.
  • Among his upgrade names, the only two letters not represented are O and U.
  • Prior to April 20th, 2022, Hot Kalash only used 1 AK-47. This single gun fired slightly faster and was significantly more accurate than the current dual wielding of two, but of course only could deal half as much damage.
