# Make Riley Riddles, Not War

When a famous man sets out
With a frightening weapon in hand
In between remain I, devout
Against killing making my stand

What am I?

When a famous man sets out

Pac-man has been amazingly entertaining since the 80s

With a frightening weapon in hand

fist - a hand forming a weapon

In between remain I, devout

I is infixed and with fi for faithful

Against killing making my stand

a pacifist is against killing.

• Just so. Once again, you're about 120% correct: I tried to extend the straight clue to the surface reading of the wordplay clues, (which is why I had to get rid of all the "fixes"), so the "devout" was supposed to be more of a straight clue with a nod towards the rhyme tag than an actual wordplay clue. Clearly I need to be more careful about adding unintended cleverness in the future. :-) – Bass Aug 10 at 4:49
