Monsters of ROCK!

So, it's been quiet lately.

Over the decades, there's been hundreds and hundreds of monster entries, from time-tested fan faves to critters which simply don't get much use. Sheer statistical weight dictates that at least some of those C-listers and D-listers are totally badass.

I'm curious; what monsters do people think are totally cool and deserve more "face time" as the Loyal Opposition?

Gelatinous Cube. With monk levels.

Okay, I'll go with Gelatinous Cube Monk.

Player #1: "Hah! I hit it for 12 points of damage."

DM: "The 'cube recoils and seems quiescent for a moment, almost as if its focusing on you, re-evaluating you..."

Player #2: "Huh? Gelatinous cubes don't 're-evaluate'!"

DM: "Then suddenly the surface of the 'cube begins writhing and rippling, moving faster than the drum heads at a Blue Man Group concert! It smacks you with a flurry of jelly blows, missing once but hitting four times. It does... (pauses to add up all the dice and strength bonuses) ...fifty-eight points of damage!"

Player #1: "Run away, run away!"

DM: "The 'cube gives chase, sliding slowly at first, but rapidly gaining speed. Within seconds it is boiling down the hallway behind you, sucking up every bit of slime, algae, moss, and other debris as it goes! It seems to have the 'Fast Movement' feat. It is gaining on you - quickly."

No that's what you sent against me, and nearly killed me a long time ago... I just hardly ever see wear boars at all. Ever.

I've always liked the Invisible Stalker. ...with monk levels.

I don't think the Tarrasque gets enough out-time :) *hides, as should any characters that stumble upon the Tarrasque*

That would suck...an intelligent Tarrasque with monk levels would kick butt. I had an entire planet of Tarrasque in my spelljammer game..all the other races lived underground and the big T's lived on the surface. Monk levels...ouch!

pimples are really annoying, you can kill them using benzoyl peroxide but it will also make your skin red.
