Question #1938

Geek Question of the Day: Since the dawn of human history we've created creatures or monsters to liven up our myths and tell cautionary tales. With that in mind, tonight I'm asking you; What (or who) is your favorite 'monster' from mythology, folklore, legend, or literature and why? Obviously repeats are entirely fine on this one, as is any source more than a century old. Oh who am I kidding, no point in wrangling cats on this one! =)
