A lot of games have fantasy elements, like making up creatures out of thin air. However, some games get their ideas from mythical beasts.
Even though there are many different kinds of games, they all have some things in common that make people want to play them. Whether it’s the beautiful settings or the creatures that live in the worlds that players are free to explore. Even though Elden Ring and The Last Guardian are different in how they are played, they have one thing in common: the beasts that the player either helps or fights are very important.
Because of this, these games are by far the best because they have huge mythical beasts that the players either have to fight or use to get around. Some of these mythical beasts are based on real-life legends, while others come from the story of the game itself.
Elden Beast – Elden Ring
As the true form of the Elden Ring, this enemy must be fought as the last boss if players want to finish the game. This huge creature, which looks like it could hold a whole galaxy inside of it, is the very definition of order and a tough foe for the player to face.
The Elden Beast is different from any other dragon in games like Souls, and it also turns the first enemy it kills in a battle into a sword that it uses with its human-like hands. Some players might not remember this fight well, but they will remember how the character looked.
Minotaur – Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
The story of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was heavily based on Greek mythology. This gave the player the chance to face mythical creatures at every turn, from the rarest to the most famous. In one exciting quest, the player has to get ready to fight the real Minotaur, not just a man dressed up as him.
This half-man, half-cow creature is by far one of the hardest to beat in the game, but that doesn’t mean players don’t like the way it looks. Even more so because his glowing eyes show how angry the creature is that it has outlived the people who made it.
Gorgara – Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
There are many different kinds of creatures in Star Wars. You can see them in the movies, TV shows, and video games that have come out in between. One battle that players will remember is against the huge Chirodactyl that flies through the hot Dathomirian skies.
Cal Kestis is being chased by Gorgara, a bat who wants to eat him. Night Brothers use these creatures as a test of their strength, and Cal has to defend himself against the huge bat-like creature until he finally kills it.
Alduin – The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
Dragons from stories have come back to Skyrim, and there are so many of them that it’s hard to choose which one is the best. Paarthurnax is a great choice, but Alduin is the best of the mythical beasts because he saves the player’s life by accident before destroying Helgen.
Alduin is a dangerous enemy who is better known by the name “World Eater.” Players don’t face him directly until the end of the game, when he taunts the main character from above the fog while they fight.
Hippogriff – Hogwarts Legacy
Along with the fun of a Harry Potter game that lets players feel what it’s like to go to the school of magic. Many players were also excited about the chance of meeting mythical and magical creatures as they explored the land around it.
Players weren’t let down because, along with many other fan-favorite creatures, they can get their own Hippogriff mount by moving forward in the main storyline of Hogwarts Legacy. Many players will want to ditch the broom for the half-eagle, half-horse hybrid as soon as possible so they can fly through the sky on a well-known beast.
Chocobo – Final Fantasy
It would be wrong to talk about mythical creatures without mentioning the huge, usually yellow birds that many of the Final Fantasy characters have used as mounts to get around the world. The Chocobo is not only funny to look at, but also very cute. Since 8 Ball Pool, they have evolved to do many things that horses used to do.
The Chocobo has become the game’s mascot in many ways, as players often think of the mount when talking about the role-playing game. Players hope that this beast will keep showing up in new games, either in the background or as a mount that they can ride again.
Jormungandr – God Of War
There are all kinds of shapes and sizes of mythical beasts, and some of them never stop growing. In Norse mythology, Jormungandr, the World Serpent, is a great example of this, and players got to meet him for the first time in God of War.
When Kratos and Atreus wake him up in Midgard, he quickly becomes one of their friends. Even though players can’t understand a single word he says, they still fell in love with the giant snake that came back in God of War: Ragnarok.
Trico – The Last Guardian
Trico, a huge dog-like creature, is one of the best mythical creatures that players have met in Gaming by War. They fell in love with it right away. Throughout The Last Guardian, players rely on Trico to help them avoid danger and tell a story that will make them cry at the end.
Trico has a lot of power, but it is still up to the player to guide him through the environment while feeding him barrels of food and taking the spears from his fur that their enemies have stuck in him.
