Lycanites Mobs is a Game Mod for Minecraft created by Lycanite (naturally) that adds in a huge amount of new monsters, materials gotten from said monsters, and even new weapons that can be crafted. Alongside various original monsters and mythical beasts, the mod introduces creatures from Doom, Heretic, Hexen, and even Oddworld, into Minecraft.

Lycanites Mobs provides examples of:

  • All Trolls Are Different: Big mean lumbering beasts who throw boulders and turn to stone when exposed to sunlight.

  • Anti-Frustration Features: Even the weakest monsters in the game can pack a wallop, making early game tougher than usual. To help with this one of the most easily found mobs in the game are Nymphs, friendly elementals of life that heal the player just by being in their presence.
  • Big Bad: While there isn’t really a story per se, the demon Asmodeus is still pointed out as being the mastermind behind the demons and an infernal force that must be destroyed.
  • Big Red Devil: Behemoths. Unsurprising, considering they're based on Barons of Hell from Doom. As well as Afrits, though they're small and black. Also Rahovart, with an emphasis on big.
    • Arixes are a bit more unconventional, being white ice imps.
  • Chest Monster: Not exactly for "chests" per se, but Ents and Geonachs fill this trope in a gameplay sense - Ents have a chance to spawn when players harvest wood blocks, while Geonachs have a chance to spawn when the player mines ores.
  • Chupacabra: Here it is a Glass Cannon canine beast that lives in caves.

  • Dragon Rider: It's possible to ride on an Ignibus.
  • Elemental Embodiment: All of the Elemental Mobs, naturally. Cinders, Reivers, Jengus, Zephyrs, Grues, and Geonachs all fit here.
  • Elemental Weapon: The Cinderfall Sword and the Venom Axeblade light enemies on fire and poison enemies, respectively.
  • Eye Beams: Eyewigs can shoot poisonous laser beams from their eyes.
  • Expy: The Wildkin is an Owlbear in everything but name.
  • Fiery Salamander: Salamanders, which have a fiery bite and are made of fire. Also, Ignibuses(Ignibi?) are massive dragons that breathe fire.
  • Fish People: Lacedons look like humanoid fish.
  • Flaming Sword: The Cinderfall Sword, which lights enemies on fire and can summon Cinders.
  • Hellfire: The Behemoths shoot green fire with this name. Belphs also shoot deep red fire called Doomfire.
  • Light 'em Up: Wisps are elementals of light who are very powerful, but fortunately also very benevolent. Anything that comes into contact with them starts to glow.

  • Lizard Folk: Gekens, lizard people that spawn in the jungle.
  • Magma Man: Lobbers are giant golems made of lava. In addition, Khalks are Magma Turtles, and Volcans are Lava Elementals.
  • Minorly Mentioned Myths and Monsters: The mod puts in some super obscure mythical beasts, like the Aglebemu from Native American lore, the Jengu from Central African mythology, and the Yale from old medieval bestiaries.
  • Nonstandard Character Design: To Minecraft as a whole - the mobs in this mod are far less blocky than anything else in Minecraft, which makes them stick out a fair amount.
  • Organ Drops: While this applies to just about any Minecraft mob, certain monsters have a chance to drop a body part which can be used in the Equipment Forge to make special weapons.
  • Planimal: Arisaurs are plant-like dinosaurs. They drop meat, which is lampshaded by the bestiary and the tooltip of the raw meat.
  • Playing with Fire: Every Inferno mob that doesn't control lava controls fire.
  • Poisoned Weapons: The Venom Axeblade, which poisons enemies and can summon Remobras.
  • Poisonous Person: Plenty. Most of them are swamp mobs, though the Tarantula is an exception.
  • Power of the Void: One of the elements - there's even an elemental in the form of Spectres, which spawn close to bedrock and suck you towards themselves to attack.
  • Rock Monster: Geonachs are made of stone, and the Silex are made of lapis lazuli.
  • Sand Worm: Crusks are wormlike creatures that spawn in the desert.
  • Satanic Archetype: Rahovart was likely intended to be one of these.
  • Scary Scorpions: Sutiramus are giant scorpions.
  • Shout-Out: Many monsters in the Nether are straight out of Doom. In addition the Amalgalich boss is essentially Red in all but name.
  • Summon Magic: One of the features of the mob available to the player - using a summoning staff will allow the player to summon certain mobs in their bestiary.
  • Spiders Are Scary: A fair number of creatures are spider-based, or at least look like it. Case in point, the Frostweavers, Tarantulas, and Eyewigs.
  • Underground Monkey: Mobs have a chance of spawning in alternate versions, often gaining more health and sometimes with additional abilities.
  • Video Game Cruelty Punishment: One of the elementals are the elementals of order, shining warriors known as Aegises. They appear in villages and are peaceful... Unless you attack a villager or steal something from them. In which case they will all group up on you and try to tear you to shreds.
  • When Trees Attack: Ents, which have a chance of appearing and attacking whenever you break a tree block. Also their stronger cousins the treants.
  • Weakened by the Light: A number of creatures in the mod burst into flames when in the sunlight, but Epions take it a step further and explode when in sunlight.
  • You Will Not Evade Me: Spectres suck the player towards themselves, making them hard to avoid. The Skylus can do this too, though only if you are in the water.

How well does it match the trope?
