You DO realize some people are going to be offended by your assumption that they're fictional, right? I'm one of them.

And I hope to god he's not implying that Gingerbread Men aren't real. Because if they're not, then who the fuck did I take a bite out of under that freeway overpass Friday night?!?

I'm seeing a fair amount of consensus on some entries that didn't make it, such as Babel Fish. They must have been close... I'm also mildly disappointed at the lack of Zelda and Mario enemies. Great list, though, and great writeups from Darwin.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

1. Mushi
2. Pikmin
3. Catbusses
4. Sky Bison (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
5. Pequeninos / "Piggies"
6. Wookies
7. Ents
8. Susuwatari (the soot sprites from various Studio Ghibli films)
9. Grue (Zork)
10. Oni
11. The simple Hyperchicken
12. Babelfish
13. Irken
14. Time Lords
15. Lumpy Space People ("Oh, my, Glob. I cahn't believe you fohrgot LSP and like all her best friends! I'm never speaking to you again, like, evar.")
16. Totoro
17. Yoshi
18. The Cuties (The fierce little guys that just fall apart in Adventure Time)
19. Kodama
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
20. Lizalfos ("Aah-AHK!")
21. Nibblonians
22. Moblins (The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker)
23. Shadows (Babylon 5)
24. Piranha Plants (Super Mario)
25. Shinigami


On my list of about 70, I did have Candy People, as well as the Rump People and the Pagelings. I'm pretty surprised that (my) Little Ponies made it on, since they were bumped down to 34 on my list. I also had Trandoshan and Djinn down there; kudos to those who included them.

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.

That's also why I (almost) included My Little Ponies, actually. They have an interesting society, in which, for example, they have to do a lot of labor to change the seasons (at least it's a lot of labor when you don't use magic) as seen in Winter Wrap-Up.

I just noticed something. Johnny, you DID count my vote for halflings toward hobbits, them being interchangeable names in the books, didn't you?

Pretty good list -- I love the Muppets and would have included them IF I thought they counted. I mean, the Muppets are Henson creations, but they are people, rats, pigs, frogs, etc. Not really a "fictional species." But whatever--I'll never object to them being included!

But man o man o man...

How could I be the only one who voted for fucking ALF?!?!?!?!? He wears Hawaiian shirts, eats cats and plays Boullibaseball back on Melmac. In fact, none of my top 5 made it. Luck Dragons! Critters! C'MON!

Here's my list:

1.   ALFs  (Alf)
2.   Crites (Critters)
3.   Luckdragons (The Never Ending Story)
4.   Thermians (Galaxy Quest)
5.   Triffids (Day of the Triffids)
6.   Mogwai (Gremlins)
7.   Skeksis (The Dark Crystal)
