Welcome to the 31-obscure monster Halloween challenge, where I have listed one obscure monster for every day of October for any artist or writer who wish to join this challenge to make some form of art, story, and comic about them, one piece for each monster on their day.

The Vampire Watermelon sounds a lot like the Vampire Pumpkin from last year. Still gonna have fun with that.
GoldandSliverDragon Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2018
Of course they sound a lot of like their from the same myths and stories and are more or less the same thing. In the only myth or story I could find that said they were some how different was one that said they were rivals. Didn't say how or why, or what they did to each other.
