Dream Hoppers are creatures native to the dream realm and can 'hop' between various minds and dimensions within that realm. They are eccentric creatures that feed on the dreams of sentient beings. Its because of Dream Hoppers that not everyone remembers the dreams they had the night before.

A brutal, humorless bounty hunter and mercenary from the Panzar system. Cykar has seen his fair share of action; his various cybernetic enhancements and replacements are proof. Cykar's cyberoptics allow him to see in a variety of spectrums. This allows him to track his prey with almost anywhere and introduce them to his trademark saw. The warpsteel chain blade belonged to his first mark, who Cykar tore the bladed arm from in order to replace his own severed limb.

Legends of the Jersey Devil go back to colonial times and before. The creature is generally described as bipedal, with large bat wings, hind legs that bend like a cranes, hooves, and a horse or dog-head. The size of the devil varies from three to seven feet tall, and the color varies as well (with white the most common.)
Eye witnesses also describe a loud scream, "like a train wreak."

A giant Ogre-like creature who through some freakish magical accident somehow got a mailbox stuck on his head. How exactly he sees, hears, eats, and breathes is a mystery to us all. He now roams the countryside, bumping into things, and making sure the mail is delivered on time.

The Loveland Frog man is a four foot tall humanoid with the face of a lizard or frog, first spotted in Loveland Ohio in 1955. (For those of you keeping track, this is also the same year of the Kentucky Goblin incident.) They are described as scaly, with wide mouths, wrinkles on their heads. Later descriptions mention "wet hair" on their bodies which showed texture (a garment?) as well as a "possible tail." There have also been descriptions of a wand-type object which expels sparks and leaves the smell of almonds behind.
The Frog men have been seen in 1955, 1972, and again in 2000, all around the same general area of Loveland, Ohio. There was also a report of similar creature in the Dominican Republic in 1988 which may be related.

Pazuzu was an Assyrian storm god and king of demons. He is usually represented in a human like form, with a dog's or lion's head, a serpent's or scorpion's tail, horns, and two pairs of wings. In ancient times he was often invoked to drive away other demons, most notably his arch nemesis the Lamashtu. He is often depicted with his right hand in the air.
Pazuzu is the demon who possesses the girl in the 1971 movie "The Exorcist."

Fauns are woodland spirits, associated with the Greek God Pan. They are generally depicted with a human head and torso, horns, and goat's legs, and may also be shown with a goat's head. The difference between Fauns and Saytrs is the latter are shown with human feet and legs.
Fauns are usually shown as mischievous as apposed to evil, with a very "randy" disposition. Much of the imagery depicting Fauns in Greek statuary and vasework show them reveling with drink and women (and men.) In late antiquity and the middle ages Fauns were used symbolically to represent those with an aggressive sex drive.

In 1985, the Spunky McFlunky fast food chain first introduced Squid McNuggets. The highly processed breaded seafood was a smash success, and was single handedly responsible for fundamentally changing the way squid was consumed in North America.
Unbeknownst to all the McFlunky corporation is the cover for a vast underground terrorist organization headed by the evil clown master Spunky McFlunky. The McFlunky Squid McNugget was merely phase one in a multi-phase plan for world conquest. Phase one is to gain the public's trust and get them to allow Squid into thier homes. Phase two involves fifty foot tall genetically engineered indestructable McFlunky Squid McNugget monstrosities crawling over the landscape and subjagating mankind.
Comes with Sweet and Sour sauce or Honey Mustard, in six, nine, or twenty packs.

The Mad Gasser of Mattoon was a bizarre case involving strange gas attacks during the 1930s and 40s. Witnesses report a nauseating sweet smell and paralysis of the legs. The Gasser is described as tall, wearing tight fitting clothing, and may have been a woman in men's clothes.
Why gas attacks? There are several theories, the most likely motive being robbery. The gas was non-lethal and seemed to be designed to incapacitate the victims rather than kill.
Along with the likes of Jack the Ripper and Spring Heeled Jack, the Mad Gasser of Mattoon has entered urban legend and will terrorize us all for years to come.

A Tsukumogami evolved from an old style rotary phone. Like his modern counterpart eventually there will be millions upon millions of his like who will take over the Earth.
You cannot use him to access voicemail or automated banking systems.

Adramelech was originally a sun god in the Sepharvite and Assyrian pantheons. Over the centuries he became demonized in Judeo-Christian belief. By the middle ages he had been made Chancellor of Hell and elected President of Hell's senate (didn't know Hell was a democracy.)
He is also in charge of Satan's wardrobe, of all things. I suppose it's better than being in charge of Satan's toilet.

Like his cousin the Cloptiucus, the Soda Crab is a Tsukumogami spawned from a discarded fast food beverage container. Seeing the amount of said discarded cups and such in our landfills it's safe to assume they will take over the world one day.

The Trigymmies are a bizarre race which inhabit a secluded Indonesian island. Thousands of years of inbreeding crossed with random mutations from naturally occurring island uranium deposits have created a genetic offshoot from the human race. At a mere 24 inches in size the average Trigimmie comes only to knee height on a normal human. The face and head now encompasses the whole of the trunk. Arms and legs have shrunk in size but still remain strong. Strange horns have sprouted from the head, and seem to increase in number and size with age. Most strange of all is the addition of a third eye in the middle of the forehead, which most likely evolved as a defense mechanism against the island's large predatory birds.
Despite their bizarre appearance Trigymmies are still part of the human family. They are able to produce viable offspring with normal human beings, and are in the habit of abducting women from neighboring islands to restore their depleted genetic stock. They are generally peaceful but wary of outsiders.

Imps were originally seen as a subset of the household spirit (such as the goblin, brownie, nixie, etc.) which were common in European pagan belief. They were represented as more mischievous than evil, pulling pranks but willing to do good deeds for companionship. Over time they became more sinister, taking a role as a witches' familiar spirit or as attendants to Satan himself. In modern fantasy fiction they are generally cast as small, immature demons, who act under the thrall of more powerful entites, and usually serve as spies, footmen, court jesters, etc.

Fry Head now servers as McFlunky's stooge, using his great strength and sadistic nature to subjugate mankind and take over the world.
Two days a week he works in the drive thru. He is next in line for night manager.

The Quadromouth is one of Hell's indigenous life forms. They were originally peaceful herbivores but have been mutated after millennia of demonic experiments into hideous mouthy scavengers that clean the carrion from the battlefields. Despite thousands of years of exposure to unspeakable evil, they still retain their docile nature at heart, and are farmed for their meat in Hell's more civilized circles.

People are always saying that if I don't clean out my fridge then the food is going to come alive. Well after eight years of a dirty fridge it finally happened. The sandwich walker was spawned from a ham sandwich, with tomatoes, lettuce, and cheese. I made him a little home out of milkcartons and a hollowed out watermelon. Everything was great until one day I came home to find my little friend consumed by some meatloaf leftovers that had suddenly sprouted tentacles and a voracious appetite.
I haven't opened the fridge since then, I don't want to distrub such a fragile ecosystem.

The boy who would be known as One-Legged Jack was born with a strange birth defect. Both legs are fused together below the torso, but unlike other suffers of Mermaid Syndrome there is only one foot at the end. Jack as the ability to rapidly hop with his one leg, attaining speeds faster than a normal running man. Through the years he's also developed an extremely keen sense of balance.
Jack suffered constant harassment as a child, and eventually ran away to join the circus. Along with his friend Serpenzo the Serpent boy he travels the country as a one-legged tightrope walker.

In times past the Salamander was associated with the element of fire. References to the Salamander as a fire elemental go back to antiquity, and was common by the middle ages to use ingredients derived from Salamanders in alchemical potions and the like. Their skin was supposedly so cold it could put out fire.
This association of the Salamander to fire may have been born from observations of a piece of wood being burned in which a Salamander just happened to be hibernating, as the creature would crawl from the wood it would appear to be "born" from it. Certain species of Salamanders also excrete toxic milky substances from their skin when threatened, which may have lead to the belief they could withstand the flames.

Strange alien squid heads from another dimension. The Chrioptopus has the ability to "link" itself to a bipedal host, consuming the victim's head in the process. If the host is somehow damaged or killed it can disengage and use it's tentacle/feelers for locomotion until it can find another.

The Sphinx is a composite animal made of up a lion's body with the head of an man, eagle, or ram. In ancient Egypt statues of the Sphinx were used as temple guardians, the most famous of which is the Great Sphinx of the Giza plateau. Rulers would often have their own heads carved onto the heads of Sphinx statues to gain favor with the gods. The Sphinx began appearing in the artwork and mythology of other nearby cultures, including Greece, India, and Mesopotamia.

Bizarre offspring of the Gorgan Medusa, the Gorganites share her reptilian characteristics. They sprang to life when the toxic blood form the monster's severed head dripped into the sea. Unlike their famous mother, the gorganites cannot turn people to stone with a mere look. They are still ugly though.

A succubus is a demon in female form, who torments and fornicates with men. In addition to torturing her male victims she also collects seed to be implanted by her male incubus counterparts, in order to propagate more demons. In the middle ages children with birth defects were considered the fruit of such unions.
Funny what people in the middle ages considered "torment," huh?
