Monster Madness: Fell Beast vs. Giant Squid – Kothoga vs. Samael

Tuesday’s Monster Madness brought us a close race, but Vermithrax ended up pulling out a win against the Xenomorph Queen. As was expected in the other match, the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog eviscerated the Bat Gremlin. Today, we have a peculiar battle where air meets sea, and a fight between two blood-thirsty creatures from folklore.

One has to wonder how exactly a battle like this would happen. Does the squid come up to the surface of the ocean and flail its tentacles about, trying to grab something? Does the Fell Beast dive into the water like an overgrown reptilian eagle, snatching the squid up in its hideous talons? Your guess is as good as mine.

Fell Beast – They kind of get their asses handed to them against giant eagles, but we’re talking about a giant squid here. If the Fell Beast has any ability at all to attack things in water, then I guess he holds the advantage.

Tools of the Trade: Flying is a big advantage here. If on the surface of the water, the giant squid wouldn’t be able to move very fast.


Giant Squid – It’s not just any giant squid. This is the squid that terrorized Captain Nemo in ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’. It’s the squid that wrapped its horrible tentacles around a submarine and threatened to crush whole sailors in its gaping beak.

Tools of the Trade: If those tentacles are long enough, it may not even need to surface. Maybe it could snatch the Fell Beast right out of the sky.

Both are extremely large, agile, four-footed demon beasts that would like nothing more than to kill whatever is put in front of them. One is possessed by demonic mojo, and the other is a horribly mutated, flesh-chomping machine.

Kothoga – What was once human is now a mutated species of God-knows-what. It doesn’t really matter. Kothoga roams around museums, terrorizing the inhabitants and consuming those who are stupid enough to wander the hallways alone.

Tools of the Trade: Agility and killer instinct.



Samael – Called forth from the repugnant depths of wherever resurrection beasts of death come from, Samael remains a formidable foe for anyone.

Tools of the Trade: He’s an agile killer just like Kothoga, but also multiplies himself during resurrection after he dies.

    The Fell Beast has no ranged attack like Vermithrax had. Otherwise, it would calamari time. But because the Fell Beast has to get close enough to physically strike, basically it has to be on the surface of the water, I think the Squid would just reach up and swat it down.

    Terrible picture of the “Fell Beast”, by the way. I’m assuming this is the Nazgul’s flying beast from Lord Of The Rings.

    “Don’t come between a Nazgul and his prey” seems like an applicable quote. I’d guess a slashing diving attack on a surfaced squid might work — cut those arms off one by one, and the job is done.
