Go To

The Cultists in Q: The Serpent God really fucking goofed.
Quetzalcoatl, being one of the more benign deities of the Aztec pantheon, discouraged human sacrifice. This leads to either two possible interpretations. Either the cult made the mistake of trying to summon him with a human sacrifice and ended up corrupting him because of it (turning a normal, nice god into a man-eating abomination) or they ended up summoning a different god altogether, probably the much less benevolent Tlaloc.
The creatures in "Beast Of Bray Road" really were government made.
If you follow normal evolution, a wolf or bear-like creature evolving to walk fully on it's hind legs is impossible. This leads to the interpretation that they were the result of a government (perhaps FBI or CIA) "super soldier" program, which were used to attack the militia base. However, after achieving this, they escaped, and the military are currently trying (and, evidently, failing) to recapture them.
  • Or it's a more traditional werewolf, as opposed to the other one in S2.
Matt in Wendigo was still fully human.
There is a syndrome called "Wendigo psychosis" in which a human thinks that he is going to turn into a Wendigo and cannabalise the people around him. Matt may have developed this psychosis in the episode. My reasoning for this is:1. It is never stated in the episode that he is entirely supernatural.2. It makes the episode creepier.
  • I think his teeth would disagree with you there.
    • He could have used a knife to file them himself. It certainly would be appropriate for his growing psychosis.
      • And the claws? Those were in no way ordinary fingernails, nor is it biologically possible for fingernails to grow to-best estimate-two to three inches in a matter of two weeks. Mine grow like crazy and they're only at best a quarter-inch after four.
The poacher in Bigfoot was one of Ken Tobar's suppliers.
The poacher was illegally hunting black bears for their claws an gallbladders. Tobar from Megaconda was trading animal parts, including bear gallbladders. Simple as.
If a fourth season is ever made, the featured creatures will be...
In a thirteen-episode season like the first:
  • "Succubus" (as a vampire-like being in the vein of the past three seasons, playing up the horror of a seemingly normal person actually being a demon)
  • "Kappa" (following tourists on vacation in Japan as they come under threat by the legendary creature both in water and on land, with the last survivor(s) only just barely managing to escape when they managed to knock it over and weaken it by spilling its water despite not being Genre Savvy)
  • "Mummy" (another supernatural episode where some delinquents break into a museum at night and, along with a security guard, are attacked by a revived mummy in horrific ways; making up for the Sadly Mythtaken aspect of "Q: The Serpent God," Anubis is specifically addressed as Dark Is Not Evil in the info-segments)
  • Advertisement:
  • "Goatman" (a composite of a few different goatman-type beings, including the Lake Worth and Pope Lick monsters)
  • "Megarat" (a claustrophobic story taking place underneath New York City where a group of urban explorers stumble on a huge nest of rats, including some the size of dogs which proceed to eat them alive; the info-segments address the capybara, giant prehistoric rodents, and the possible spread of Gambian pouched rats as the possible truth behind giant rats in real-life)
  • "Emela-Ntouka" (a group of people in a train yard discover a crate that's been broken open from the inside and are attacked by a living dinosaur that's being moved from a hidden African valley to a secure location—specifically, it's Emela-ntouka)
  • "Demon" (in one big homage to Paranormal Activity, a family notices strange happenings in their home and set up cameras to try and find out what's going on, only to find evidence that they're being terrorized by an invisible demon)
  • Advertisement:
  • "Snallygaster" (delving back into the relatively obscure cryptids that make the show good, a group of campers are attacked by a bizarre flying monster)
  • "Megalodon" (it wouldn't be complete without a sea monster, and what better monster to use than one of the most famous sharks ever? A submarine crew on a scientific expedition notice evidence of a giant in their survey area and have to escape)
  • "Beast of Busco" (justifying it as a giant snapping turtle, the protagonists are attacked by a surprisingly fast carnivorous monster out in rural Indiana)
  • "Wampus Cat" (two children are worried about something lurking out their bedroom window, which their parents think is just an ordinary mountain lion but turns out to be something much worse...)
  • "Flatwoods Monster" (a rural family come under attack by a monstrous, toxic alien)
  • "Cyclops" (while on vacation, a group of friends stumble on the home of a mysterious person when they're caught in a storm and hope they'll be helpful, only to learn too late that their host is a huge one-eyed cannibal)

How well does it match the trope?
