Mortasheen - Underfiend by scythemantis Mortasheen - Underfiend by scythemantis
"Tentacle Horror"

CLASS: UNKNOWN

A lifeform that arrived in the core of a meteorite. Unlike the distantly related Genetisaur, all Underfiend are genetically male, and target females as hosts to their parasitic genes. Unfortunately, its attempts to replicate itself will usually result in little more than a worthless, barely-living deformity, and even healthy offspring are frequently born sterile. Throughout gestation, hosts suffer an unbearable craving for the blood of their own species, and even develop a leech-like tongue similar to certain vampires.

Over time, Underfiend can adapt to local customs and demonstrate more civilized, more considerate mating behavior. One particular specimen even enjoys a successful career in marriage counseling.

ART STUFF:

Yes, this is exactly what you're either afraid or hoping it is, depending on the person. I tried to put it gently. Mortasheen stuff will never be much more explicit than this description, and always a little lighthearted no matter how horrible the idea really is underneath.

It's only fair, considering how many monsters I have that are siren-style man-eaters.

Cool description. The head is neat, yet oddly familiar. Did you use a similar head on another Mortasheen?

I'm not sure, I don't remember! :0

I based this monster slightly on one of the bosses from the original Contra.

I'm suddenly picturing the afore-mentioned "marriage counselor" adjusting a specially made pair of spectacles whilst consulting a clipboard and speaking with Mr. and Mrs. Badcrumble.

Yes! I am inclined to ponder what peculiar shape his chair would have to be.

It's about time Mortasheen had one of these, actually. I'm just gonna have to not think too hard about it...

Ew, too late. Also, I just lost the game.

I always did envision a Mortasheen game/cartoon/whatever as having a perhaps surprising number of cute girl characters. The day someone puts one of my ideas on Rule34 is the day I'll know I've succeeded as an artist in some way.

Well, it's not on 34, but there HAS been one instance involving a Septacle...*nightmare fuel*


I'm dead serious about this.

The last sentence in the first paragraph seems to be an unintentional parallel to Uzumaki chapters 10-11. :)

I'm not even going to ask about the rest of his body then.

Anyway, this is just as great as everything else you do, although I'd like to see some less of these 'abstract' classes and more 'common/zombie' types.

But there are less than ten monsters of the abstract/alien variety and over 200 of the common/zombie types 0o

Yes, and how many species of alien are on earth at the moment? Infact how many earth species are in space at the moment? That's not to say the aliens you have now aren't great, I just think that the alien class should be small in comparison to zombies etc. (Maybe I just love zombies too much)

It's sci-fi/horror/fantasy so there can be plenty of aliens :p

They are meant to be a very small group though, and I have few ideas for more.

Unfortunately zombies are another group I'm fresh out of concepts for :x

what really? why not do a version of zombie yeast or zombie grains which could then be used as a basis for hundreds of zombiefying/necrotizing foods and parasites of that nature.

I would think a zombie plant that bore fruits would be an excellent source of alcohols both of fuel grade and less potent, as well as the potential of something that I personally wish existed... Meat Fruit :D
