Question of the Week #27: What is Your Favorite Fictional Creature from a Video Game?

Goombas. Guar. Tektites. Zombie dogs. Chocobos. Gaming is littered with amazing creatures with unique designs: enough to fill hundreds of fictional zoos! But of all of those mysterious monsters, which one is your favorite? Perhaps one with a cool design? One that you would want as a pet? Maybe it just bears a resemblance to an animal you like?

If I had to pick a favorite creature from a game, I’d have to go with Leshens from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. I do have a soft spot for the Mushroom Warriors of Hollow Knight, but the eerie brutality of this master of the forest is just too powerful. Leshens have the ability to summon wolves, bend wood to their will, and slash with claws that are sharp as steel. They also have neat lore that gets revealed during some of the game’s quests regarding their relationship to Nithing Poles, and how they can essentially be tied to certain individuals like a curse. Plus, leshens just look AWESOME.

But enough about my pick! Tell me about your own with a comment below! Be as in-depth as you like: I’d love to hear about it! Thanks for reading!

  1. HOLY DANG, that’s what a leshen looks like?! Cool but scary! They remind me of the wendigo. Definitely wouldn’t ever want to encounter one of those guys! *shudders*

    Hmmm… as for me… O_O* GOSH. There are so many to choose from! Definitely not zombie dogs or tektites. I think the little ravens in World 5 of Yoshi’s Island are adorable, even if they’re frustrating. I’ll have to do some more thinking on this one!

    1. Yes, Leshens are TERRIFYING! They’re all high-leveled, and if you find one early on, you have no choice but to run for the hills! They’re super creepy and I love them for it lol

      I do love the design of those ravens! I haven’t played the game, but I’ve seen them other places 😛

      1. Oh I highly recommend The Witcher 3! In my opinion, it’s the most highly-polished RPG of the current generation! The monster designs are great, and the associated quest-lines are so well-written!! One that deals with a leshen in particular was incredibly spooky and well-done!
