Now launched as Oxymoronic Being

EDIT: This YKTTW discarded and replaced by Self - Contradictory Creature, launched as Oxymoronic Being. See also Miniature Giant Space Hamster, Sliding Scale of Fantastical Humanoidness, launched as Sliding Scale of Anthropomorphism.

Is This Tropable?? Vote if this is tropable, and if so if it should be one trope, two tropes, an index, etc. I will discard this if there are no comments in 48 hours.

A being who you might suspect is native to a Bizarro Universe. Not just wierd, but wierd in a way that is basically a subversion of all common sense, and often humerously so.

Real Life:

Fantasy that is far, far, from the realistic end of the scale:

Can sometimes be a subtrope of Our Aliens Are Different:

EDIT: We are revamping this as either a supertrope of Mix-and-Match Critters, Starfish Aliens, Bizarre Alien Biology, Eldritch Abomination, etc. OR a specific (maybe subjective) trope about creatures whose mere existence seems contradictory. OR both, I suppose.
