Monsters | Creatures

Monsters and creatures are fantastical beings. They are part of our stories, our folklore and mythologies. The word monster derives from the word ‘monstrous’ which is used to describe something or someone as unnatural, horrifying, or evil. Monsters are non-human entities who have strange and mystical powers or characteristics. They come in all shapes and forms and live in all sorts of places -- some live underground or in the sea, but others live under your bed or in your wardrobe. Frankenstein’s Monster is a really famous monster, but he has always been misunderstood. He was just a little lonely.

What is a monster?

A monster can be defined as an imaginary creature that is generally large, ugly, and frightening. A monster is considered a horror creature, like Frankenstein or Dracula, that often appear in literature and films to scare audiences. Monsters are regarded as grotesque who scare others with their appearance, and threaten society with their powers. Monsters can also be human-like, but they are portrayed as lower class, mutants, and supernatural.

What do monsters look like?

Typical images of monsters include animals with no heads or exaggerated features. Monsters are often ugly, lurk in the dark, and do not look like anything else. Physically monsters sometimes have qualities like dwarfism, giantism, physical splicing with other creatures, extra or missing human features, or more elements that differentiates them completely from what society accepts as normal.

Why are we afraid of monsters?

Humans are afraid of monsters because they challenge society’s standards. We create monsters and they are often a reflection of ourselves. Monsters are also characteristically out of our control and do not follow rules or opinions. Monsters are not predictable and tend to be extremely violent. Also, since we do not know what to expect from monsters or easy to explain and our mind makes them scarier than they actually are.

Smaug
Height comparison diagram of Smaug compared to other Lord of the Rings characters

Smaug was the last great dragon living in Middle-earth. He captured the Lonely Mountain after being drawn to the amassed wealth of the Dwarves, destroying the nearby town of Dale in the process. He lived there for 171 years, atop his great trove of treasure. He had immense physical strength, could fly, and had the ability to breathe fire from his mouth and nostrils. He had reddish gold scales that covered his whole body. Smaug was a cruel sadistic character with a lust for gold. When Bilbo Baggins stole from him, Smaug descended into a fury and tried to destroy nearby Lake town, which ultimately resulted in his death.

Smaug is portrayed in the Hobbit films as having an overall length of 427’ (130 m), total wingspan of 360’ (110 m), and estimated grounded height of 60’ (18.3 m). In the books, the length of Smaug is 59’ (18 m).

Dobby
Height comparison diagram of Dobby compared to related Harry Potter characters

When we first meet Dobby, he is a house elf for the Malfoy family, having worked for them for many years. He is small, with large green ears, and wears a pillowcase as an outfit. In the wizarding world, house elves are at the beck and call of their masters and adhere to a strict set of loyalty codes. They can only be free if they are presented with clothes by their owners. Dobby is actually a very powerful elf with many magical abilities. He becomes a friend to Harry, warning him when he hears of the plan to reopen the Chamber of Secrets, which would put Harry and his friends in danger.

Dobby, voiced by Toby Jones, has a height of 3’6” (1.06 m).

Demodog
Scale dimensioned drawing of a Demodog with Dustin from Stranger Things

Demodogs are the fifth form of a Demogorgon in the Netflix television series Stranger Things. Roughly resembling the size and scale of a typical large dog, demodogs are predatory creatures that obey the commands of the Mind Flayer. Adolescent demodogs are not as resilient or powerful as their final Demogorgon form, but they are strong enough to tackle adult humans and resilient enough to withstand light gunfire. Demodogs are adept at digging and climbing and often hunt in packs.

Demodogs vary in size with typical withers heights between 26”-32” (66-80 cm) and overall lengths in the range of 45”-54” (114-137 cm).

Treebeard
Size comparison drawings of Treebeard comparing the heights of other related Lord of the Rings characters

Treebeard was an Ent, a very old race of Middle-Earth created by the magician Yavanna after she learned of a danger to the forests of the land. Ents were ancient treelike beings known as the ‘shepherds of the trees’. They varied in height, size and colour and often resembled the species of tree they were created to protect. Treebeard was the oldest Ent alive at the time, so old that he remembered the Elves teaching the Ents to speak. After befriending Merry and Pippin, Treebeard joined the War of the Rings and enlisted the rest of the Ents to fight against Isengard.

Treebeard is portrayed in the Lord of the Rings films and books as having a height of 14’ (4.28 m).
