Re: In the spirit of Halloween,What mythical creature is your favorite?
I have... A thing about mythological creatures, so I don't have a solid favorite, I honestly have a list, perhaps a long list if creatures I like.
Werewolf: Not to be mistaken with Twilight wolves (which by the way, cemented my absolute loathing of vampires, make no mistake, Twilight wasn't the reason, but the final nail in the coffin, so to speak) I'm from the Sega genesis days, where games like Shining Force and Altered Beast made Werewolves powerful warrior like beings.
The Phoenix family: the Phoenix legend always fascinated me. A fiery bird that can set itself on fire and reincarnate in the ashes. Granted, my fascination started, not surprisingly, from Shining Force, it quickly grew once I learned more about its legend. I learned about it's eastern counterpart, that is apparently the ruler of birds (not to be mistaken with the Vermillion Bird of the South) and even its predecessor of sorts, Bennu, which may be the bird the Phoenix originate from. Really, just a cool bird to look up, because it's like a catalyst for learning about a wide array of mythical birds.
Yuki Onna: The snow woman, this is a creature that both facinates me, and scares me. While the ghostly legend varies, the one that grabs me is that she is a being who lures men into frozen oblivion. Kinda like a Siren combined with a vengeful ghost mix.
Kitsune and Kumiho: I love both creatures. Fox are notorious tricksters in the mythological realm, and these two easily take dominance. While the Kitsune is a bit more in the mischievous Side of things (though no less vicious,) the Kumiho is downright mean and deadly.
Black Dogs: I love black dog legends. Essentially, black dogs split into two jobs, forewarners of death, and guardians of hell. I like both jobs, but guardians interest me though it is used less than the forewarner side of things.
That's just some of my tabs, I could go on and on.
