My favorite is "Bag of cheap plastic monster toys, let's make stats for them."

Owlbears, Rust Monsters and Bulettes, Oh My!

It's all good, man, I just don't see it. They're all clearly inspired by stag beetles, but while the upper right image is clearly an update of the lower left image, by any metric, the only reason I see similarities between the two of them and the lower right image are because I've been playing D&D for 35 years.

Antlar doesn't look anything like the other three.

That one has been fairly well documented. The umber hulk is like the rust monster, Gygax documented he saw them in a toy shop bag of knock off ultraman monsters, bought them, and made game stats for them.
Ah, it was from the famous bag of plastic knockoff toys? Okay, I can see that game of whisper down the lane working out.

My apologies, Valamir.
