Random List – 20 Invasive Creatures

An invasive species is a plant, fungus, or animal species that is not native to a specific location (an introduced species), and which has a tendency to spread to a degree believed to cause damage to the environment, human economy or human health. If these were enhanced, by magic, technology, genetic manipulation etc. they would make an interesting foe for players and protagonists to go up against. You cant deal with them, plead for mercy or anything else of a similar nature. You either have to kill them or send them somewhere else.
