Allright there are so many slimy nasty demonic creatures in scifi and fantasy, which is your favorite?

I'd have to say the Balrogs from the Silmarillion, just cool where they came from and they are deffeinetely the original badasses.

Any other thoughts?

Seriously, I like the Wyrsa from the Mercedes Lackey books.

For me I'd have to say a Miragon, but none of you know what that is so I won't....

The raptors in Jurassic Park. The first time I saw them it was just unbelievable. They are the coolest.

Erm, I found 2 references to that word that fit the description:

FUCK!!!!!!!!!!

I SWEAR TO GOD THAT WAS TOTALLY ORIGINAL.....I COULDN'T FIND MIRAGON IN THE FIRST SITE (TOO LONG), BUT I DID SEE IT IN THE SECOND!!!!

This is unbelievable, and it's such a cool damn word, and it's the perfect one to describe the creature in my story.

It seems it's a few hundred years older than you are. :(
I've had that kind of thing happen before. BTW, you can press CTRL+F to have the computer search for the word for you.

First of all I would like to say that this is a great topic and very original.

My favorite scifi creature has to be Rygel on Farscape. How cool would it be to just float around all day and say that your a "Dominar" to over 600 Billion people.

I'd have to say the Shadowen from the Heritage Saga of Terry Brooks 'Shannara' series, now there was a well-developed and cool enemy :)

Okay yeah dragons are cool. I think that they are probably the best scifi/fantasy creatures around. On that note is anyone going to go see Reign Of Fire? Anyone else looking forward to this to?

P.S. I just graduated highschool recently, our mascot was a burgundy and gold dragon....GO DOSS DRAGONS!

Yeah I can't wait to see reign o fire. Deffinetely an original idea (for once).

Yeah Dragons are awesome! Probably one of the coolest scifi/fantasy creations.

The Asgard from Stargate SG-1. They kick major Gou'ld butt. Thor's cool

Yeah Thor is cool but isnt he dead now? Or wait his brain is stuck on some crystal or something....last time I checked at least.

Thor's body is dead but his brain is in the motherships computer and is now in the SGC's hands. They are sending it to the Asguard so they can 'download' his brain into a clone.
