We all know about the heroes of mythology. But what was the reason that they were heroes in the first place? Because they were so good at killing monsters, that's why. If it wasn't for the heroes, the stories would have been quite a bit different, because some of these deadly mythological creatures were pretty hardcore.  But that doesn't mean it wouldn't be cool to be one, maybe just for a little while, until the hero shows up.

But which one would you be? There were all sorts of them to choose from. Of course, we all know about dragons; they are probably the most famous mythological creature out there, deadly or otherwise, and for a good reason. Dragons are cool, but there are much more than you could possibly be.

You might be a fire-breathing monster like the Chimaera, a mighty minotaur, or Griffin, which is half lion and half eagle, or maybe even a Manticore, and I am telling you right now no one wants to mess with those no matter how heroic you might be.
