Animorphs: THE ONE by Monster-Man-08 Animorphs: THE ONE by Monster-Man-08
The One is a mysterious being, we only see it at the very end of the series, and only for a page or two. It seems to be a god-like being, it's power bleeding through dimensions and whatnot, assimilating sentient beings for it's own uses, and having a cult made from the shattered remains of the Yeerk Empire.
The full abilities of The One are never shown, as shortly after we meet it (in deep, forbidden space), our heros ram their ship into The One! The End!

.....!

The One, in it's brief appearance, shifted between the "rat-trap"-mouthed robot, the elf, and Ax (and later gave Ax a creepy mouth). The forms The One takes appear to symbolize both how The One's setting a trap AND that the Animorph series mixed sci-fi and fantasy elements.

BOOK: Animorphs #54 - The Beginning

Animorphs and all related characters belong to K.A. Applegate

the stoplight loosejaw-like form is terrifying, it looks biomechanical and i love the three yellow compound eyes, that rat-trap mouth is cool, the elf form is more alien than most elf-like aliens, it's eyes have two glowing pupils and the green "hair" appears to flow like energy.

I like how you fulfilled the weird "elf" thing but still made it look alien.

Really cool...

I imagined it to have one-third a robot, one-third Ax and one-third an elf-thingy (In my story, I call the elf a Limatrak).

The One, also known as 'HOLY SHIT, THIS IS HORRIFYING!'. Hell, this is supposedly the thing that got CRAYAK out of his universe. That means it SCARED or was MORE POWERFUL than CRAYAK!

THAT is goddamn NIGHTMARE FUEL!

Since the series is being re-released, perhaps a proper ending will be added this time around.

Sadly, its only being re-printed with diferent/new covers- not re- written : (. In my own oppinion, the new covers aren't that good either.

I prefer the original covers. And I think they might edit it to make it less blood-sheddy. You know, without holes in people shoulders and guts oozing out.

LONG LIVE ANIMORPHS! (The longest series until Bailey School Kids was published (57 books... that I've heard of.)

I hope they don't edit out those parts, they make the books so much more intense- plus they remind the reader that the Animorphs are fighting war.

I know, there the biggest series I've ever known- I haven't even read all of them due to my schools uncompleted collection.
:w00t:GO ANIMORPHS AND ALL YOU ANI-FANS OU THERE!

Learning that the series abruptly ended at #54 made me lose faith in Animorphs. Thank you, K.A Applegate. Thank you so much!

when i tought of the One(AssHole)
i always saw a black Ax whit a small mouth whit red sharp teeth.
i never really liked Ax's fate, really undignyfied!
i hope they find a way to separate them!
but thats only Applegate that can deside the final outcome, she personaly said that is would end in battle as it started, who know mabye they survive and now have to fight a reborn Yeerk empire.
so many posibilities!

what do you think?

do you mean that the 54th book wasn't the real ending of the series? And that Applegate is planning more Animorphs eventually?

Awesome. Too bad the series never continued; I'd have loved to see what happened after they rammed his ship.

i don't understand how The One assimilated Ax...and what does he mean by assimilate? like absorb him or something?

Monster-Man-08 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2009
Yeah, 'assimilating' is absorbing or possessing something else. Ax was captured by The One and is now part of It.

:iconboogaboogabooga:
BoogaBoogaBooga Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2009
so basically the One absorbed Ax and is using his body or something? Like how the father thing uses dead minds?
