    Google definition is fun in the comic context: a person's inherent qualities of mind and character.

    When you start a new thread, if you agree, please add what I suggested some time ago - MitD can have more then four legs - it can be six or eight. I said that his form can be insectoid, crab-like or spider-like. It fits the overall shape, moving eyes without turning whole body, and also in this case he can use same limbs for walking and holding things.

    I think I'll cast a vote for MitD XVI: Soup or Slaad and MitD XVI: Going on Protean.

    I think the issue is that no one is saying he can’t be any of those things. There are a few things we’re pretty confident MitD has or does (he has eyes and teeth, he eats and sleeps, etc). and a few things we’re confident he does not have or do (he doesn’t immediately damage or incapacitate people who look at him, he doesn’t take damage from being in sunlight, the Giant says he’s not a creature the Giant himself made up, etc).

    But there’s a vast amount of open space between those two areas, and there’s a finite amount of room to list information. The number of things or characteristics the MitD MIGHT have is very large and it’s not really workable to list them all.

    It also makes the entry seriously unreadable, even after much moving around. "Quadruped" is a nice, simple word for the concept that MitD has forward an backwards set of legs. There is no word I know of in English to mean "3+ legs in non-linear configuration such that some are forward and some are backward from the others".

    I am not putting any vote but I am not sure I understand any pun with the "sunny disposition" one.

    Someone care to explain ? (or there is nothing more than the fact that he is in darkness with sunny disposition ?)

    The Monster in the Dark has the same kind of disposition (happy-to-help kid) as Sunny the Behold Eye-Thingie.

    Just out of interest, how many mitd threads have risen and fallen since the last canon appearance of the MitD?

    MitD's last appearance was in #1189, published 2 December 2019. Since then, there have been approximately 2.2 threads - all of threads 15 and 14, and roughly 20% of thread 13.

    Behold! A mind flayed! It is displaced bestially by such a guessing game! Like carrion, crawling feebly towards a resolution.

    Another vote from me for this.

    And I'd like to suggest
    MitD XVI: Monster? What Monster?
    As a callback to "Gate? What gate?" AND
    A jab at the purpose of the thread AND
    A hint that the Creature in the Dark doesn't behave like a monster.

    I've finally got around to reading Schlock Mercenary, and even though I don't think carbosilicate amorph is a good fit for MitD, I did find one amazing similarity between them:

    Schlock tells the following tale about his backstory:

    "So there I was, with what passes for a migraine headache among humans. And amnesia. All I knew was that I was being hunted..."
    "... there was this unioc pirate looking for an amorph for his crew. Well, he found me, or I found him. And three worm-jumps later, our ship had a big hole in it, and I was being shipped off to some circus."

    Complete with Schlock in a very MitD-looking cage.

    The similar notes in their backgrounds (very fuzzy on early life, chased by hunters, ends up in the circus) is interesting, and the strip is from 2001, so it's remotely possible that the character had some influence at least on MitD's backstory as told in OoPCs. Not likely, but remotely possible, at least in my opinion.

    This probably isn't strictly relevant evidence, but I found it fascinating nonetheless.

    Not remotly a guess but figured i'd share this for how funny i found it when i woke up. Had a weird dream in a nap and was reading an OOTS where MitD gets revealed, starts with just one corner of him than zooms out next strip to reveal one of the mushroom people from Dark Souls 1. Given what utter PitA's they can be it definitely tickled me. Totally not consistent with what he could really be, but hilarious nonetheless.
