What is Your Favorite Group?

What is your personal favorite group of monsters? And what is your least favorite group of monsters? And why? 

My own personal favorite groups are mostly: Chimerae, Vermin, Plant, Fae, Demon, Tsukumogami. My ultimate favorite is probably Aberration. I just always liked the freaks of nature, the bizarre, the magical and insane. 

My least favorite group is probably the Gods, never cared much for powerhouses! Don’t really care for the Humanoid group that much either. 

And while most of these creatures (spare for some fake myths) come from mythology, this is from my own project. So some undead aren’t undead in the myth/folklore/cryptid stories, and many plants aren’t plants in the real myth, same with Oozes. But otherwise most monsters end up in the same groups which is boring.

What would you love to see in a wave of MH? Personally, I'd love to see an entire wave of 80s-movie-homages, IE, one homaging 80s slashers, one based on Gremlins/Critters, one inspired by Aliens and its ripoffs, one based on the Cenobites, one homaging the Toxic Avenger, hell maybe even with "pets" based on critters like Belial from Basket Case, the Sentinel Spheres from Phantasm and The Stuff!

Nuckelavee MH girl 100%

But really I think it’d be cool if they did more lesser-known international cryptids, like an Indonesian Ahool girl, Indian Buru girl, Sri Lankan Devil-Bird, Kenyan Kongamato, Latina Onza catgirl, Egyptian Salawa girl, that kinda thing.

Also acceptable, Jersey Shore Jersey Devil.

Salawa

The Salawa, thought to be similar to the Set Animal:

The sha is usually depicted as a slender dog, resembling a greyhound or a jackal, with three distinguishing features: a stiff tail, often forked at the end, which stands straight up or at an angle, whether the animal is sitting, standing, or walking; its ears, also held erect, are usually depicted as squarish or triangular, narrowest at the base and widest at the squarish tops; and a long nose, often with a slight downward curve. It is normally depicted as black, but may also have been reddish

n the 1960s, and again in the late 1990s and early 2000s, stories began to circulate about a mysterious canid, dubbed the salawa or sal'awa (scary wolf). The creature allegedly attacked several small villages in remote parts of southern Egypt, resulting in several injuries and even deaths. Eyewitness accounts and grainy photographs of a specimen allegedly killed by villagers resulted in speculation that the creature was the same as the “Typhonian animal”; a slender, black canine, rarely seen, but typically found on the edge of the desert.

When I first read this, I actually thought of a Saluki, a breed of dog fond in Egypt. They’re slender, fast, and graceful.

So basically these are the first five, but I’m sill working on more, so worry not (sherlee, Matt, whoever that was following Mae, and maybe some other people) because I’m still working! its just…these things take time…

I feel like banging my head against the wall: There are so many apologies that I am tempted to tag onto these pictures but I’m not going to, but if you feel like you deserve one let me know because most of you do
