Water Colossus by Farkwhad Water Colossus by Farkwhad
Millennia ago, an entire civilization banded together to ensnare this devastating water spirit in cursed armor. However, once the deed was done, it was not enough to hinder the monster entirely. With no means to rid itself of the cumbersome shackles, it wiped out the entire populace of its planet in a blind fury. Ever since, it has been traveling the Rifts in search of a way to free itself with malicious intent.

I thought coming up with some possible attacks it does would be fun:

-Shoots a super-heated column of water from its mouth area. Indicators of this are a glowing of the neck and head area and steam venting from the forehead.

-Uses the bodies of its past victims as vessels to attack you with. Those bodies would be floating around in its own body, swept up by its powerful current and pushed out to create enemies to fight.

-Can smash stuff with its head in classic WWE fashion.

-Tail whip?

-Maybe create a steam/fog screen that hinders characters.


EDIT:

Thanks to everyone's support and kind words throughout the competition! And obviously, thanks to the RIFT and DA teams for selecting my little water worm as the 2nd place winner!! I feel so happy. T.T


DOUBLE EDIT:

GOOD GANGLY GOPHER GRAPES! Second place and now a DD? I didn't even know that was
possible..... well I'm not gonna challenge that, haha. Thanks a bunch for picking this, it's
been an honor. :)

Really nice, unique design and the aged armour has a wonderful contrast with it's bronzed coloring to the actual blue being.

So... If it's still über destructive and wild, what was the point of the cursed armor?

Impresive and powerful. Such thing could use water to cut through diamonds. Enough pressure and you have something what can cut through almost anything.
