* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: Two of the AI creatures (the Mammoth Bird and the Cephalodon) as well as one of the Monsters (The Kraken) have squid like features.


The Monster is a [[OneManArmy one-alien army]], well-equipped with the ability to attack, evade, regenerate armor, and [[TitleDrop Evolve]] after eating enough of the local fauna. [[FighterMageThief Five unique Monsters]] have been revealed so far: the [[LightningBruiser melee powerhouse Goliath]], the [[SquishyWizard flying and long-ranged Kraken]], the [[FragileSpeedster evasive Wraith]], the [[MightyGlacier 35-ton Behemoth]], and the horrific Gorgon.

Added DiffLines:

** Supports are this by definition. What they inherently lack in raw damage, they make up for with indirect abilities that improve the rest of the hunter's chances. Kala is this above all, with little in the way of decent damage, but her teleporters can provide incredible mobility if used for short range jumps mid battle, and her armor disintegrater allows allies to completely bypass any and all existing armor the monster has to damage their health directly.

Added DiffLines:

* AcidAttack: Gorgon has an acid spray attack. This is one of its most damaging attacks, rapidly melting through the health of anything caught by it.


CirclingVultures: A monster can attract vulture-like harpies to a fresh corpse.
