Mother of cannibals by Tapwing Mother of cannibals by Tapwing
Or the neurotenic echidna (she's got a few names).
She/it's some desturbing yet goofy looking thing. Being a jellyfish humanoid tendril monster with a suspicious spot on its face. (Eye, mouth, other hole that shall not be named)

I really like this design, but the feet tentacles bug me. Unless they're constantly pointing up or something she's just going to step on them constantly like loose shoelaces. 

(Ps, I took liberties with the size of the echidna since I wanted her to look the part of momther of cannibals, so I'm pretty sure I made her a good couple of meters taller than she actually will be. Plus being one of the three main monsters, she needs something going for her.)

Drawn in Procreate

Don't know for sure, but my guess is just a little taller than human size.

Maybe the tentacles on the feet are sensors so that guide her feet. Then she'd be unlikely to step on herself.

If she's walking then that could work, but I think it'd be hard for her to manage them while running.

It could very well be explained as a subconscious action. When you chew food, your tongue doesn't flop around and constantly get bitten. It is (most of the time) subconsciously kept out of the way of your teeth. The same could be said for the feet tentacles.

Heheh true.
walking I can see it staying out of the way just fine and when running I can see it keeping the overly elongated tentical out of the way via rapping it around its leg maybe, but overall it's still seems like a pretty useless appendage for the theorized function.  

Really my main issue with it is I feel like it'd be a b**ch to animate.
If it's a rag-doll effect it's going to look silly flapping about.
Then there's animating it to action cues, or stances which to me anyway seems like a lot of work for a barely useful appendage.

But maybe there's a trick to animating these types of things I'm not aware of.

Bigger than she might be? This is Dondi we're talking about, I think we can expect what is pretty much a kaiju at this point.

Heheh, I don't know about that.
Just judging from the original concept art I want to say she's about human hight.

It'll be bigger than humans. in a newer stream dondi said that the normal cannibal "is just the small one." but u did make that comment like 5 months ago

Really? It is pretty much a demigod, and if the colossus and reaper are anything to go by, I think we can safely say it will be at least allo sized.
