Animorphs Races: Howlers by Monster-Man-08 Animorphs Races: Howlers by Monster-Man-08
A race of warriors created by the vile Crayak, Howlers are perfectly designed for killing. The entire race shares a hive mind, so what one Howler learns will quickly be learned by all other Howlers, ensuring all members gain all experiences and skills. The Howlers are eventually defeated when the Animorphs introduce the idea of kissing to their shared minds.

The Howlers themselves are not truly evil, they see killing as a game, unable to see the sentient beings they murder as anything more than toys. In a sense, they are no different than the Ellimist's Pemalites; all they want to do is play.

BOOK: Animorphs #26 - The Attack

Animorphs and all related characters belong to K.A. Applegate

So they just want to play? This is how I imagine that scenario playing out,
me, hey buddy want to play?
The howler, ( ripped my face off )
me, ( faints from shock then soon dies )
I'm also curious on how kissing defeated these guys? And who in the hell tried to kiss one of these things ( or more accurately they probably just showed it how on each other ) but still that looks like it's made out of magma or to be more accurate it looks like a lava cat monster with Wolverine claws. And if that thing tried to kiss you I'd imagine it would still hurt

I've seen the live action show, And I think it should have been animated.
These aliens from the Animorphs universe are so cool and the were basically hand puppets on the show.

Did it ever explain whatever happened to these guys? I assumed the Crayak wiped them out after the Animorphs made them useless for his purposes, but I'm not sure if the books ever actually said.

I think the Ellimist implied the Crayak destroyed them. Don't think the Howlers were ever referenced again after that.

Hmm, for some reason it doesn't seem scary enough, maybe more bulky, its a little to wanky and lanky to be scary enough to be a killing machine, well drawn and a unique rendition none the less

Yeah, I imagined the Howlers to be a lot bulkier than this.

Yeah, thought Howlers would be a bit more... amorphous shaped humans?

Jake really should have used this morph more often...

But their main weapon is their howl, and if Jake used that in battle, he'd risk destroying his friends as well as his enemies.

Not as long as they had ear protection or warning.

These guys are amazing. It's freaky how they're just like a bunch of kids playing video games; no connection with reality whatsoever.

Crayak probably flipped his lid when the Howlers tried to kiss the next species.

I remember when I first read the "choose-your-own" book, I went all the way right until I was killed by a Howler.

I like this interpretation better than the book did on #26. I've been rereading the entire series again. 6_9;

Like the venber, I think it should be a bit beefier, considering just one of them fought the entire team to a draw. Still, as a whole, I like it. It's more consistent with the description in the book and a lot more impish, which I think is a good thing for these guys.

Also, am I the only one who finds it rather sad that despite the blatant statement that they're not evil, a lot of people are praising this design for looking "nice and evil"?

Not to mention their howls have a tendency to kill sentient beings.

Oh yes~

Your Howlers look more evil than what I've seen on the books. I like it. That is totally awesome.
