I love how Filipino mythological monsters, no matter how big and terrifying they are, can also be really nice???
Colossal tree demons that daze travellers and cause people to go astray?
It’s high on weed and wants to be your friend. May also develop a crush on you and grant you wishes. Literally stoned all the time.
Giant cyclopses with immense strength and amplified senses?
Plays around in the forest giggling at it’s own jokes and running away from other animals and people because it’s too shy.
Hobgoblins knowledgeable of ancient magic involving complete human bodily deconstruction?
Won’t harm anyone if you excuse yourself when near its presence. Can also bless you with good fortune if knows you won’t bring harm to its underground home.
Shapeshifting, day-walking, human eating monsters with scorpion tail proboscises tongues, detachable upper bodies that crawl on ceilings, and make disturbing noises in the dark if it spots you?
Can be socially awkward, introverted, shy, and implied to be terrible at cooking and choosing to eat out instead. They also have standards when it comes to hunting: neighbors and human friends are completely off limits and may even be protected.
