    Summoned world-destroying monster

    You're an evil summoner hell-bent on destroying, or controlling through fear, the world. What do you summon?

    PS: is it possible for a mod to add an option for other?

    If it was a wish spell, a la Aladdin, Dragonball, etc... someone would totally summon something fuzzy and cute, like a chinchilla. Because that's more zany than a rabbit or teddy bear (hehe, Muse video for Uprising with the demon teddy bear).

    Something simple, like a child that spreads a disease, makes people barren.
    Simple yer human, so much better than a big thing.

    Anything with tentacles for me. (shudder)

    But, as Igor said, sometimes the simplest thing can seem so horrendous - like maggots and/or presidential elections.

    If I wanted to control the world through fear, I would summon infinite amounts of Money.

    Hang on a minute...

    I'm with Igor on this - a single big monster can only be in one place at a time (presumably), and it's a fairly safe bet that anything alive can eventually be killed somehow.

    Plague is so much nastier. Better than a plague that kills people, how about a plague that kills the plants? Soon you have no crops, and no food animals, and mass starvation. The decent into anarchy and cannibalism ensues quite fast from that point, I would imagine.

    Personally I find that sort of thing an awful lot scarier than a monster!

    What? No blunt hammer like a tarasque, Cthulu or some sort of monster that burps black holes? :-P

    The problem there, is that it's the nuclear option - once that sucker appears, there's nowhere to go (or rather, that's the point when our hero gets out the magic sword/discovers he had the power within him all along/tricks the baddie into destroying himself), so that kind of monster is automatically the end-point of a conventional story. Is that what you're after, SilentDan?

    I am the words that you left unsaid.
    I am the thing hiding under your bed.
    I am the whisper you seek in dreams,
    I am the one who's not as he seems.

    I am the girl with the tearaway grin;
    I am the devil who's counting your sins.
    I am the chill you feel at night.
    I am the one slipping out of sight.

    I am the blade that whispers your name.
    I am the scars that kept you sane.
    I am the blood creeping down your arm -
    I am the one who helps you harm.

    I am the solitude pressing down,
    I am the one with a concerned frown.
    I am the man who's face you can't see.
    I am the needle which sets you free.

    I am the fear consuming your soul
    I am the creature climbing out from my hole.
    I am the walls of your padded cell.
    I am the one to drag you to hell...

    Yeah, it's a nuke kind of monster, ie: the endgame entity. That might make an alright title... or maybe not.
