Yeah, I'm surprised so many people thought of it.  Easy to miss, but in the show and such, they are specifically referred to as Muppets, despite the fact that they never expressly say what a muppet is.

I mean, there are people and animals and monsters and god knows what. I guess that just never registered as a race or a species. Oh well, it wouldn't have changed the top spot, anyway.

Cool, dragons. Had a feeling from the get-go they were gonna come out on top.

That's it folks!  Thanks for participating and making this a great list.  I was going to list other things I wish made it, but I think that's what the looking at the list after the event is for.  I'll put mine up later and say I was originally very disheartened when I was the only one who voted for my number 2 (and a lot of number 1's sadly didn't make it.)

My mistake.  Does that come from a specific dealy or is that just an excepted classification for a thing that doesn't exist.

Nope, as there were 2 individual House Elf entries.

Actually, I think I'll just post my list now.


1. The Muppets
2. The Bizarros
3. Mogwai
4. Goblins
5. The Fairy
6. Mutants (Marvel)
7. Hobbits

8. Candy People
9. Xenomorphs
10. Gremlins
11. Wookies
12. Skeksis

13. The Pod People (AKA Body Snatchers)
14. Daleks
15. Tralfamadorians
16. The New Gods
17. The Parliament of Trees
18. Ewoks
19. Time Lords
20. The Klingons

21. Vampires
22. The Vulcans
23. Yokai
24. Werewolves
25. The Skrulls

I totally get people not voting for things like the Parliament of Trees or Candy People (though I think there was a boost from Invader Quirk) but I REALLY wanted the Bizarros to make it, even if just at the very end.  There a little creepy, but mostly endearing in their crazy backwards planet of Htrae (which is, of course, a square).

Also, I was going to bust out Bizarro Charles Darwin.  Here's what he looks like:

Shit, I am kicking myself for missing both the Observers (!!!) and the dire wolf!

Agreed with DB's observation that you did a great job on the list, Johnny. The commentaries were awesome and For the Dar-Win was perhaps the most inspired bit I've seen since Krampus' commentary.

Here's my list. I didn't stray very far from the more obvious choices.

1. Werewolf
2. Dragon
3. Moomin
4. Lombax
5. Great Old Ones/Elder Gods
6. Irken

7. Brownies
8. Aswang
9. Fables (Bill Willingham comic)

10. Kaiju (but really just Godzilla)
11. Chupacabra
12. Shoggoth
13. Greek Gods
14. Shinigami
15. Mermaid
16. Golem
17. Jawa
18. Faun

19. Lake monster (Nessie, Tianchi monster, etc)
20.. Triceratops
21. Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yeti
22. Kappa
23. Transformers
24. Sleestak
25. Giant

I would have liked to have seen Shinigami make the list but oh well.

Agreed.  The bar has been set pretty high for whoever does future lists.  I know if and when I ever host another one I am going to be putting a lot more effort into being entertaining.

I think this is the second list that I've neglected to vote for Dragons. I don't know how I do it.

Great list overall, still. I second what folks are saying on the commentaries, that'll be a tough act to follow. I don't have my list on this computer, and by the time I get to it this will be a thing of the past, so let me just say that I'm somewhat ashamed that none of you saw fit to go with these guys:

Awww p'shaw!  You guys.  I'm blushing.

Shinigami are pretty cool too.



LOTS of great things didn't make it.  I actually have a confession.  I haven't seen much Invader Zim, but while I like what I've seen (just 3 or 4 eps a few years ago) I didn't think much of the Irkens.  They seemed like pretty generic invaders.  When they got up high, I was a little dissappointed, thinking "oh, it was chosen probably because the show was funny, not because the race is anything special."  So it made me happy that when it placed, you guys where in fact talking about what made the race and their culture cool, rather than just what a funny show it is.  This made me happy, and restored my faith in what makes fandom great... focusing on the details.  BTW, if you like Invader Zim, read Johnny the Homicidal Maniac and Squee, Jhonan Vasquez's far less kid friendly comics.

I totally spaced on Shingami! How could I forget Ryuk and his ilk? I love the Death Note movies.

Thanks again.  I feed off compliments like the very vampires you didn't vote for (no, they are cool, I swear.  Just give them another few years!  They'll make a comeback!).  Anyway, voting for the next list has begun!  Here!:
