|Aqua timoris piscis|
|Habitat||Water, ironically enough|
|Description||A fish full of paradoxical fear|
The Aquaphobic Fish (Aqua timoris piscis) is a monster that lives in a constant state of torment.
The Aquaphobic Fish is a rather small creature that lives in any body of water. It is in a constant state of stress due to an odd biological "glitch" that causes it develop a severe fear of water, despite the fact that it can't survive without it. As a consequence of this existential dilemma, the Aquaphobic Fish has a tendency to lash out at other living creatures that come near it in an attempt to take its mind off of things.
The Godville Department of Monster Zoology has attempted to study this creature in the past, but due to the aforementioned "glitch" also doubling as a protective feature, the study has been cancelled. Fortunately, it has no effect on Heroes.
- Paradoxical nature may cause damage to mind if thought about for too long
- Constant state of fear makes its attacks wildly unpredictable
- Pathetic appearance causes Heroes to underestimate its strength
- Constant stress has wreaked havoc on its immune system
- Water balloon launcher
- Bringing up the Barrel Fish will distract it
