I'm missing a couple of RPG cliche enemies. I've tried all sorts of things I think are commonplace among the genre like zombies, bandits, pirates, wizards, spiders, wolves, and so on. Can someone give me some hints?
One of your monsters will soon become an experience in a world of it's own.
Another monster is already part of this experience, but tend to value their candles above all else.
If you can guess what game I'm on about you'll know these two answers. I'm stuck on my last two personally.
The 4 regular turtles thing I can't figure out yet... Or the quest system is broken.
EDIT: Nevermind, system isn't 'broken'. It's just extremely picky and a certain *** + Monster combination doesn't give a positive... Odd if you ask me. I would've nailed this monster 24 hours ago if it weren't that goddamn picky.
#2. Two common creatures names put together to create a monster
#3. Very popular in D&D. They have their own book (or 2).
#4. A creature from "German Folklore"
#5. Often seen piloting airships
#2. Mario occasionally uses this "weapon" as well
#2. It's in the title. Come on...
Also AAAAARGH! Still can't get #2!
#1 Dragon Quest has these all over the place in many varieties
#2 This one is so ridiculous and hard I don't know how to give a good enough hint without giving it away... It's two living things put together in one word.
#3 Some would argue that it is the age of them.
#4 Think Warcraft, they like to mine and love their candles
#5 Green, pointy-nosed, mischievous.
The hint at the question itself is a little misleading, at least on a Video Game site.
Also, the only one I need now is the first part of the Hammer Smash.

"Hey can you tell us what the pages are (concepts, characters, etc)?
That'll help us with the finicky search engine....
Forget it... I could either spend time trying to get magical Giant Bomb achievements, or I could actually play a game from a catalog of old games calling to me.
The whole idea of asking for more hints on the forums totally breaks the achievement aspect of it, anyway.
" @xobballox: #2 is totally not a cliche creature, considering I've only ever seen them in one line of RPGs. You have to be a pen-and-paper role-playing nerd to get that one.

"Hint: Its a DLC for Dragon Age when first released. And second is in the title.
If you were playing a D&D game - they would be considered 'Constructs'. Preferred Mage pets.
EDIT: And this #2 in Monster Mash is breaking my balls. I've gotten a lot of clues (even through PM's) and I still can't crack the code.
For someone that has been through a Monster Compendium for D&D games and even DM'ed a bunch of NWN games, this monster is definitely not a cliche.
I just found it too. I seriously have not seen this anywhere. Maybe once in D&D. If they can say the flying lizard are a cliche then they can also say skeletons, ogres, elementals, or Gnomes are cliche's.
" @NoXious: I just found #2 in wikipedia. It is not a cliche whatsoever. There are about a million more common monsters in video game RPGs. I would have made it undead, personally. C'mon, what other monsters do you usually heal to kill. "
Dude, just got pointed at #2. It's not a cliche, but it's definitely a D&D monster. Hell, it has skins/soundsets for it in Neverwinter Nights.
If you've got #4 and #5, #2 will make sense! It is considered to be of the same "family" and pretty much use the same social structure.
Thank you all for the tips! Especially iplaygames.
Number two took me forever to figure out. As a hint adding on to the previous ones I would recommend you search just one of the terms and look for the monster, once you do that it becomes very obvious. I think they called it a cliche because how ridiculous idea it was not because its super common.
" WTF IS NUMBER FOUR?!?!? I HONESTLY DON'T GET IT..... HINTS??? NVM, just got it... God 2 and 4 was a BITCH. BTW, if you wanna get 4, you'll have to be kool and bold. :) (yes, kool is spelled like that on purpose hint hint.) "If you play WOW these guys hate it if you steal candles
