* ''VideoGame/PuyoPuyo'' gives us such beings as a flamboyantly gay skeleton, a fish with human arms and legs who is obsessed with dancing, a harpy with a dismal singing voice, an oni that has an onion for a head and can only say "Onion", and an acorn-frog. And that's just some of the bizarre monsters you'll find.

** The Yeti, which blogger Philip Sandifer called "a monument to insanity". They are actually robot yeti controlled by floating spheres that enter their backs and control them, these spheres being part of a EldritchAbomination hive intelligence. They have glowing eyes and use pistol-like guns that allow them to shoot smoke that turns into malevolent web fungus. They are controlled by moving wooden figurines around on a board and can use these as homing devices.

*** Keep in mind that the above troper said weird''er''. Discounting Klungo-- who is questionable at best-- and his multiple appearances throughout the game, the bosses listed make up ''more than half'' the roster. The others are a vaguely GenreSavvy anglerfish, a father pterodactyl whose main attack is spitting wads of [[{{Squick}} phlegm]], a pair of dragons from the trope namer of HailfirePeaks (read: one's fire oriented, the other's ice themed) and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Gruntilda (who has been reduced to a skeleton, on top of being a witch) in a tank]]. And she spouts trivia questions mid-battle. [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext Yeah.]]

*** Kaiju with tails on the top of their bodies and heads at the bottom are a popular design in the ''Ultra Series'', thanks to ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman'''s Twin Tail, who looks a bit like a shrimp with a frog-like head, but standing upside down. It also influenced the iconic TwinTails hairstyle in Japan.

* The eponymous VideoGame/{{Metroid}}s are floating jellyfish with teeth that will suck out your life. If left alone, these jellyfish turn into ''flying dinosaurs that spit fire/lightning'' ([[FireIceLightning no ice,]] [[KryptoniteFactor for a very good reason]]). From the same series comes the X, which are floating piles of viral stem cells, and the Ing, which are five-legged spiders from another dimension that specialize in DemonicPossession.

* ''WebAnimation/DSBTInsaniT'': Sand Snake. Snake puts it best.
--> '''Snake''': It doesn't even look like a snake, it looks like a lobster trap attached to some railroad tracks.
