The Fearsome Critters are a group of mythical beings from [[TallTalesTeller the stories told by European colonists in North America]], mainly in New England (naturally) in the 19th and early 20th centuries, but there are stories of Fearsome Critters spread all across the country, including several notable "species" specific to the southwest. Fearsome Critters are notable for being described primarily by their behavior, not by their appearance, and for often having names that reflect that (Hide-Behind, Come-at-a-Body, ''et cetera''), meaning that what they actually ''look'' like fluctuates wildly from tale to tale in the style of Myth/PaulBunyan--whose loyal friend and partner, Babe the Big Blue Ox, might well be a Critter herself.
