  • Summary: You're exploring the world of an MMO when you notice an adorable raccoon watching you. You approach it (squealing inwardly at how cute it is). There's no way something that cute could be dangerous! You reach out to pet it... and with one swipe of a little paw, you're dead. It was over before it even started. just because a monster is cute, doesn't mean it won't kick your butt. In fact, MMO developers seem to find some twisted humor in making powerful monsters look absurdly adorable. Why?

Why? Maybe it's supposed to let our guard down. Or question our role in killing this cute "monster." When we kill an epic, demonic, monstrous looking monster, we might feel some sense of righteousness. But how can we justify harming a cute little critter?

And so, it owns us instead.

Here are 5 MMO monsters that you should not mess with if you know what's good for you.

1. Name: Giant Raccoon

Giant Raccoon - Atlantica Online

Found in: Atlantica Online
Level: 101
Notes: Don't go near this adorable raccoon unless you're prepared to get a beating. This rotund critter hits hard... and as if that's not enough, he also has the ability to drop a giant raccoon onto your entire party. Approach with caution.

2. Name: Pink Bean

Pink Bean - Maple Story

Found in: Maple Story
Level: 180
Notes: Awwww. It's a Pink Bean from another dimension. And also quite possibly the most powerful monster in the game. It has over 2 million HP. And when you defeat it, it cries. Do you feel good about yourself yet?
