Survivor Aberrations: BEHOLD THE WINNER!

This thread is inspired by the prior threads that we've done- and it's time to finally do 5e aberrations; HP would be so proud of us, even if ... um, you know, we aren't quite so proud of him. Sorry, buddy.

That's right; we're gonna do a survivor thread about Aberrations!

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.

IMPORTANT NOTE- DOWNVOTES ARE ONLY WORTH 2 IN THIS THREAD. BECAUSE IF YOU MESS IT UP, YOU WILL GO INSANE.


Each aberration starts with 20 points and you vote for one aberration you like which gets 1 point and a aberration you dislike which loses 2 points. It is intentional that a negative vote is worth more than a positive vote- first, because aberrations, you don't get good without a lot more bad. Really, really, really bad. What, this is news to you? Second, because.

Upvotes are in green, downvotes are in in red (unless you are on your phone, and are unable to). Copy and paste the previous posters vote and change the numbers. You may vote once per day. This is an honor system, and we are all honorable gamers; please do not abuse it. If this means you vote once at night one day, and once the next morning - that's fine, but don't vote again until the following day.

This is purely a popularity contest and you do not have to explain an upvote or downvote, but feel free to- explanations are where the fun is! When downvotes reach 0 the aberration is eliminated (FATALITY!). Finally, if a aberration has one vote left, then you have to make the choice to use all of your downvotes to eliminate it; there is no vote splitting. In addition, you must split your vote- you can't upvote and downvote the same aberration (no "see" votes). And you have to use BOTH YOUR UPVOTE AND DOWNVOTE if you vote.


Two important points that you must read before voting-
1. This is a pure popularity contest, and is meant to be fun. You can cast your votes for whatever reason you want. Spite, irrational love/hate, gameplay mechanics, strategic voting, and so on is perfectly acceptable. Are you voting against the behlders because eyes creep you out ever since Un Chien Andalou? Are you upvoting Slaads because you've felt guilty ever since that unfortunate dissection incident in biology? It's all good! This vote does not affect anything in real life, and no aberration will be kicked out of D&D because of your vote. You can comment for the reasons for your vote, or not- up to you! But this is for enjoyment only.

HA HA! Who am I kidding? THE ELDER GODS ARE WATCHING YOU! ALWAYS WATCHING YOU! FEEL THE MADNESS!!!!!!!!!

2. This is a list of monsters classified as aberrations in 5e. The list includes all official sources (MM, VGM, MTF). You can find my source here:


Please note that certain monsters (such as neogis and mind flayers) have their various hatchlings and types simplified, with the exception of ELDER BRAIN. Different types of Slaad, however, are broken out. Star spawn (mangler, larve, grue, hulk , etc.) are all "star spawn" because it's a long dang list.


3. As always, the list is the list. If you have a complaint about the list, please direct it to /dev/null

Katana. Just kidding! Katana is not an aberration, it's a way of life.

Beholder THE AYES WIN!!!!!!!

because this is a better Mind Flayer
To be fair, this entire list is mostly just different flavors of beholder, mind flayer, and slaad. It's unfair to make us divide our hatred of these three creatures up among the different versions, saturating the ballot and guaranteeing at least one terrible version of these terrible choices makes it across the finish line. ;-)
