Skills and TraitsEdit
- Matango Physiology:
- Main article: Dryad
The Matango (マタンゴ) is a psuedohuman sub-species of dryad with fungal qualities.
While very similar to Dryads in that they are fully capable of photosynthesis and their "legs" act as roots that they can embed into the ground to absorb soil nutrients, Matangos are feared due to the belief that the species has a parasitic reproductive cycle; whereby they produce spores that infect other beings with mushroom growths that will eventually convert them into a Matango. Whether this is actually true is unconfirmed, however, Matango do emit spores that may upset those that have asthma or related allergies. Sometimes these spores also possess hallucinogenic properties.
- The Matango monster first appeared in the 1963 Toho film, Matango.
