->''"Run for your lives!"''

[[http://www.bogleech.com/ Bogleech]] is a website devoted to insects, parasites and monsters in general. It was started by web cartoonist and biology buff Jonathan Wojcik, also known as Tropers/{{Scythemantis}}. Topics include biology, movie monsters, videogames, toys, mythology, and so on. The main site also includes webcomics and flash cartoons, as well as ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}},'' Wojcik's own idea for a Pokemon-style videogame. Also has links to numerous Cracked.com articles written by him, usually about the less pleasant aspects of Mother Nature (e.g. parasites that cause aberrant supernumerary leg growth in frog).

!!This website provides examples of:
* AnthropomorphicObjects: Or organs, in this case; two recurring characters in his comics are Brains and Guts, who are a sentient brain and stomach, respectively.
* CrapsaccharineWorld: {{Mortasheen}} is [[InvertedTrope something of the Bizarro version of this trope]]. The setting is [[PollutedWasteland a sprawling continent-sized toxic urban wasteland]] of twisted science that is home to degenerate humanoids and hundreds of species of horrific bloodthirsty monsters (many created by the residents as living tools or weapons) where life is either nasty, brutish and short or agonizingly drawn out for far too long... and yet most sentient beings who live there cheerfully take it all in stride, and behave pretty much like you'd expect if this was a standard happy-go-lucky Pokémon-like world instead of a hell-world that could otherwise give '''''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''''' a run for its money.
* DarkerAndEdgier: More like creepier & scarier...
* EldritchAbomination: Some of his {{Mortasheen}} menagerie are {{Shout Out}}s to Creator/HPLovecraft's CthulhuMythos. [[UpToEleven Some are worse.]]
** Sometimes appear in the comic and elsewhere on the site too.
* FriendToAllLivingThings: UpToEleven. Wojcik loves all sorts of creatures commonly seen as frightening, repulsive and just plain weird.
** FriendToBugs
* HostileShowTakeover: As part of the Halloween 2013 event, Bogleech was temporarily usurped by [[http://www.bogleech.com/borfladge/ Borfladge]], ostensibly a version of Bogleech's website from some other reality.
* InteractiveFiction: Two so far, both as part of Halloween 2013. ''Nausea Quest'' and ''Don't Get Spooked''. The former is almost entirely text based, while the latter includes full artwork and over 60 characters.
** MultipleEndings: ''Don't Get Spooked'' has three of them:
*** Fighting the [[FinalBoss Nightmare Queen]] with other monsters, in a parody of {{Videogame/Pokemon}}. [[spoiler:She wins, but then [[{{Anticlimax}} she stops being hostile because you have some Ecto-cooler]]]].
*** A different fight to the Nightmare Queen is available once you recruit Vulthrax. [[spoiler:DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu]].
*** If you [[GottaCatchThemAll complete the Monster Album]] [[spoiler:you skip the "fight" entirely ''and'' you get a GoldenEnding]].
* {{Mons}}: {{Mortasheen}} is a dark version of this idea, with several monster clowns, sentient iron maidens, an entire class consisting of various insects fused with humans and at least four different varieties of zombie fetus.
* MonsterClown: Jonathan is quite obviously a fan; Mortasheen contains an entire monster type comprised of this trope, known as the "Joker" class, which is basically equivalent to there being a Pokemon type called "Clown". There are numerous monstrous clown merchandise items in the Halloween galleries, as well.
* NightmareFetishist
** A good example is the [[Franchise/{{Digimon}} Raremon]] [[http://bogleech.com/raremon.html page]], wherein Wojcik fanboys over a creature that looks like a stinking blob of rot and machinery:
--> ''Out of seven thousand (I'm estimating) monsters in the Digimon franchise, the stinking, rotting, bile-belching Raremon is my number one, uncontested most precious baby.''
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Explored in [[http://www.bogleech.com/dragons.html this article]], by point out that dragons were depicted with AnimalisticAbomination trope until very recently.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Mortasheen's Vampire-class monsters, aside from extremely freakish forms, are created by infection from an extraterrestrial (possibly extradimensional) super-parasite whose [[EldritchAbomination ultimate form]] is [[OlympusMons absurdly powerful]]. Fortunately, ultimate form vampires rarely live on Earth for long. Unfortunately, [[TheVirus it's because they leave to spread vampirism to the four corners of the universe and beyond]].
* TakeThat: [[http://bogleech.com/arachnophobia.html This]] article ends in one, after a pretty nice build-up. Most of the information about spiders and arachnophobia is presented pretty fairly, if perhaps a bit bitterly. For the sake of the sensitive, most of the photographs are of butterflies. These butterfly photos [[spoiler: get increasingly creepier as they go (did you ever notice how ugly butterflies can be up close?)]], and then suddenly you get a picture of a jumping spider looking quite innocent and adorable, presumably to ease arachnophobes into the idea that spiders can be cute, too. Then the second-to-last picture pops up, followed by a photo of [[spoiler: a spider catching and killing a butterfly. The words accompanying this picture: "Also, screw you."]] The overall intention is a comical one, but it can still be a little jarring.
* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: Averted. Jonathan and most of the forum members undoubtedly prefer parasitic flatworms that live in snail eyeballs to kittens.
** Some of us like everything.
* WordSaladHorror: Some of the entries such as [[http://www.bogleech.com/pokemon/pokeween/ Pokeween]] slowly degenerate into this kind of prose. The Burgrr.com website uses this kind of writing extensively.

!!Specific strips from the webcomic include examples of:
* BodyHorror: [[http://www.bogleech.com/comics/comic40-fiftyfoot.htm I'm just here to shop!]]
** It would probably be faster to list the strips that DON'T contain any body horror, really.
* CuteMonsterGirl: [[http://www.bogleech.com/comics/comic117-arachnophobia.htm I don't hate you.]]
* LightmareFuel: Pretty much every strip to some degree.
* MermaidProblem / OurMermaidsAreDifferent: [[http://www.bogleech.com/comics/comic42-mermaid.htm Oh... We have ways...]]
* OurZombiesAreDifferent: Chapters 90 to 94 have 4 hapless zombie fanatics try to survive an actual ZombieApocalypse with weird zombies that have strange and deadly abilities. [[spoiler:It doesn't end well for them.]]
* ScoobyDooHoax: [[http://www.bogleech.com/comics/comic87-unmasked2.htm Subverted.]] [[spoiler:And then double subverted by the EldritchAbomination's [[YouMeddlingKids closing line]].]]
* ShoutOut: [[http://www.bogleech.com/comics/comic29-penguins.htm Penguins]] is a parody of Franchise/{{Batman}}.
* SurpriseCreepy: [[http://www.bogleech.com/comics/comic37-life.htm The gwound is made of tasty! ]]
* VoodooShark: PlayedForLaughs and Invoked in the below comic
-> '''Brains''': Alright, that sort of only raised a lot more questions. I apologize.
* WasOnceAMan: [[http://www.bogleech.com/comics/comic18-trees.htm I was two men!]]
* WeaksauceWeakness: [[http://www.bogleech.com/comics/comic43-pirates.htm But even FOUR pirates are no match for Louis-Jacques Thenard, co-discoverer of BORON!]]
