“Paddle your way to slaughter”

Films: Xtinction-Predator X (2014)

Alias: None

Type: Man-Made

Location: Swamp

Height/Weight: Twice that of an average great white.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: All of the advertising would have you believe that this was just some ragtag derivative film about a killer alligator in the swamps. In reality, it is a much different beast entirely. And it...okay, it does sort of act like a gator most of the time, but at least it's not totally the same.

History: Somewhere in Louisiana, a mad scientist has cloned an extinct Pliosaur known as Predator X. His intentions are to make the swamp its own sanctuary so that it can lay its eggs, but there's a problem with that. Mainly, how Predator X keeps killing anyone who dares venture into the water. Not that it makes him change course, if anything. Things just keep going downhill from there.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After killing the very same person who made it, Predator X has its rampage ended when it eats a lit bomb, blowing it up from the inside and leaving behind a messy decapitated corpse. However, everyone seemed to forget its nest, which has already hatched...

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 2-Got to give them this much. The design of Predator X is as menacing and feral as you'd expect any prehistoric predator to be. Sadly, the CGI is bad even by our standards, and despite some impressive leaps here and there, there's nothing it can really do outside of the water. That's not to say you should be anywhere close to it, but still.

Trivia: -Pliosaurs are basically short-necked Plesiosaurs that existed in the Jurassic period. They include the likes of Kronosaurus and Liopleurodon. Ironically, a more recent Pliosaur, Pliosaurus Funkei, was given the nickname "Predator X" due to being rather enormous by Pliosaur standards, being about twelve meters in length and big enough to eat a person whole.

-Although the Pliosaur here is depicted laying eggs, it is universally agreed upon that most marine reptiles back then gave birth to live young, much like most large sharks. This has mostly been evidenced by the remains of Mosasaurs and Ichthyosaurs with the young still in their wombs, fully developed.

Because X is extreeeeeme!

Imagine if you heard a clock ticking with THAT.
Jurassic World's newest attraction was a total bust.

Like the Mosasaurs back in her day.
The sequel to the film that never existed!

Has Supercroc or Crocosaurus returned?
