The Hierarchical Structure Of The Monster World

The folks over at Threat Quality Press have put together an entertaining article concerning which classical monster is the biggest badass. It’s an fairly long blog read but I suggest you read the whole thing so you don’t miss out on gems like this:

Monsters are rated according to how dangerous they are against each other, and then according to how dangerous they are to all the other monsters on the list. Only if all other metrics are equal is the relative danger to the average human considered–because, let’s face it, they’re all dangerous to the average human. They are monsters.

But if your really just too lazy to read, (and boo to you if that is the case [and not the scary kind]) here is the list:

    1. Shambling ghoul zombie
    2. Mr. Hyde / Creature from the Black Lagoon
    3. Running angry zombie / Voodoo Zombie
    4. Unclean spirits
    5. Witches (conditional)
    6. Regular vampires
    7. The Mummy
    8. Wolf-man
    9. Frankenstein’s Creature
    10. Dracula
    11. Malphas, a Mighty President of Hell (& al.)
    12. Cthulhu
    13. Nyarlathotep
