Default Interference with other players' battles

I was playing Munchkin and during the Kick Open the Door phase I drew the Net Troll. I used Transferral Potion to give it to another player, and they would have beaten it had I not played "Ancient-plus ten to monster". However, they asked for another player's help and again would have beaten the Net Troll. I tried to play "Illusion" and swap the Net Troll for the Squidzilla, but the player I'd given the Net Troll insisted I couldn't interfere with their battle more than once. Looking over the rules and websites did not give me the solid answer I needed to prove my point. Am I allowed to interfere with battle multiple times and play as many cards as I like, or can I only mess with someone's combat once?

There is no restriction on the number of times you can screw with your buddies in a single combat other than the number of cards you're able and willing to use.

The rules don't provide an explicit restriction when telling you how you can interfere, which is rather telling. I guess one thing that might help is to make it clearer in the "Interfering With Combat" callout box that any one player can do any or all of those things, multiple times, in a single combat.

I just wanted to add that, at least at our games it's pretty common for someone to interfere, interfere again, interfere at least one more time, then offer to Help.

It's not uncommon for a Monster to be buffed to high levels by multiple players, or the same player many times, especially if it's a game winning round.
