Default Curse Cards During Battle

In the middle of a battle can someone play a lose a level curse on the current player battling a monster?

Yes. Curses may be played by any player at any time. But note that a Curse cannot interrupt an action already in progress -- you cannot Curse someone to lose a one-shot Item they are in the process of playing, for instance. Cursing them to lose a level during a combat, however, is perfectly fine.

So one player was at level 9 and battling for the win, player two hit them with two lose a level cards. Player one can defeat the monster. What happens?

Player one is at Level 7 and gets whatever rewards he would typically get for defeating that monster.

I am not sure if I can post this in here, but I had a question for using a curse card in combat as well for the adventure time edition. Previously stated was note that a Curse cannot interrupt an action already in progress -- you cannot Curse someone to lose a one-shot Item they are in the process of playing, for instance. Cursing them to lose a level during a combat, however, is perfectly fine.

My question is that if an opposing person is taking time debating and calculating combat points to use one or a number of items or wandering beasts can the defending player curse to throw away all the cards in their hand before that person has the chance to physically lay down their items.

Very munchkinly thing to do, but yes.

And since Munchkin does not have a stacking mechanic, the player is forced to discard before they can play a card (well unless that player has a Wishing Ring or something else that can negate a curse).
