Hypno Mantis Template Challenge

Hypno Mantises

Final Hypno Mantises on what appears to be the planet Verdanth

The Hypno Mantis is a NPC from Darkspore, from one of Maxis's Template Challenges. It is a Bio character, and likely a Lieutenant class enemy.

DescriptionEdit

Like a few mutant children of the Darkspore, hypno mantises were once small, harmless creatures playing a vital role in their ecosystems. Now they’re giant, repulsive, terrifying monsters, taller than the average sentient biped and more than capable of slaughtering sentients by the dozen in a single attack. But the hypno mantis doesn’t need to touch its prey to kill. Instead it propels a symbiotic plant that sprays toxins in a cloud. Hypno mantises also possesses revivifying antigens and boosters that allow it to bring seemingly dead creatures back to action. If all its other attacks fail, the hypno mantis attacks physically, with devastating results.

NotesEdit

  • Much about the Hypno Mantis is strikingly similar to the Hydro Mantis.
  • Hypno mantis seems to have been replaced with the same body as the hydro mantis in the beta
  • The Hypno mantis challenge is one of several leftover maxis messages from 2011, still easily viewable on sporepedia.
