The nightmarish bottomfeeders are 8'-tall, long-tailed ichthyoids that dwell in the deepest, foulest waterways. Their platter-sized eyes radiate hatred, and their gaping maws can barely close around rows of dagger-length teeth.

Bottomfeeders are cruel and terrible opponents.  Not only can they Swallow [as per p. 58 of the Mutant Future Core Rules] man-sized foes or smaller on a To Hit roll of 17-20, but they summon great bursts of strength, allowing them to lift vehicles, or pummel with abandon (adding a single +3d6 to claw attacks).

When lurking in overgrowth or submerged, bottomfeeders soundlessly appear and disappear at will, and Surprise on a 1-5 on 1d6.

Inspired by The Scooby-Doo Show episode #40, "The Beast Is Awake In Bottomless Lake" (1978).
