As seen in the picture, using a TV Sketch will distract them. They'll use their thinner buckets as a seat and watch intensely. Hitting them with anything (Paint, Thinner, Swing attack) will break them out of the trance and they will start attacking Mickey again or go back to watching if he painted it.
Even after he has redeemed it with paint, the Sweeper will still throw Thinner to attack enemies. Therefore, it's a good idea to redeem it where there is no toon floor, as it may unintentionally thin the floor out while fighting. This can also cause problems if Mickey is painting another Blotling. The Sweeper's thinner attacks will partially undo Mickey's paint, making it much harder to befriend enemies. This is especially true during the final wave of Blotlings inside the Blot, making it a tough battle for Hero Mickey.
Sweepers with red eyes have increased toughness and their shots are more accurate. To defeat a difficult Sweeper, Mickey should stay out of its path and then throw paint or thinner.
- It is a good idea to befriend a Sweeper if a Beetleworx is nearby as it will help you remove its paint shield.
- Sweepers occasionally are capable of spawning continually, making them a dangerous foe.
- These and Seers are dangerous during the final battle with the Shadow Blot, as they have red eyes and are very troublesome. Mickey will require to have a higher capacity of the same substance to prevent heavy damage from happening.
- The Sweeper's appearance is based off of the reanimated brooms from The Sorcerer's Apprentice segment of the 1940 film, Fantasia.
