Animal Heroes & Villains



Inspired by a post over at Green Skeleton Gaming Guild, I have come up with 100 different animal super beings. Some are pretty obvious. All are tongue in cheek. Some are a bit obscure. I've even sprinkled in a few organizations. I think you will find that all are fun and can provide plenty of inspiration for characters for animal-based superheroic universes like those found in Darkwing Duck, Captain Carrot and The Zoo Crew or the new World Wildlife Federation of Justice supplement being done for the Mutants and Masterminds RPG.

    1. Yeah, I wondered if that might happen. I've not really read the WWFJ, but some of the animal names are so elementary that they are bound to have been or shall be used by others.

      One thing my daughter pointed out are how many dog/demon combos there are.

  6. Toren,

    Thanks for chiming in to share that. I'd be tickled if you borrowed any of the animal names I came up with here.
