    Hey /tg/.
    Have some nightmare fuel.

    Cordyceps Fungus:
    The spores of the fungus attach themselves to the external surface of the ant, where they germinate. They then enter the ant’s body through the tracheae (the tubes through which insects breathe), via holes in the exoskeleton called spiracles. Fine fungal filaments called mycelia then start to grow inside the ant’s body cavity, absorbing the host’s soft tissues but avoiding its vital organs.

    When the fungus is ready to sporulate, the mycelia grow into the ant’s brain. The fungus then produces chemicals which act on the host’s brain and alter its perception of pheromones. This causes the ant to climb a plant and, upon reaching the top, to clamp its mandibles around a leaf or leaf stem, thus securing it firmly to what will be its final resting place.

    The fungus then devours the ant’s brain, killing the host. The fruiting bodies of the fungus sprout from the ant’s head, through gaps in the joints of the exoskeleton. Once mature, the fruiting bodies burst, releasing clusters of capsules into the air. These in turn explode on their descent, spreading airborne spores over the surrounding area. These spores then infect other ants, completing the life cycle of the fungus. Depending on the type of fungus and the number of infecting spores, death of an infected insect takes between 4-10 days.

    Also, there are thousands of species of cordyceps, all tailored to infect a specific species of insect or arachnid.

    Speed up the process proportionally for humans and it becomes awesome.

    A human gets infected and begins running wildly to the nearest wall, desperately trying to climb up it. When they get to the chimney, they cling on to it and their head explodes a few minutes later after they expire.
    Now that would be an awesome version of zombies.

    The fungus growing so fast that stalks protrude from their ears within an hour, and inflate to become spore-filled sacs.

    When the human hits the ground, depending on the length of the fall, they crack open and explode in a shower of white spores, revealing a hollow shell.

    I like the mental image of a crowd of people, intersperesed with police, all wearing gas masks. Suddenly one man starts screaming, clawing at his face and running, so fast the cloth of his pants rips and his skin tears, towards the nearest building or wall,clawing his way up. His hands dug into brick and mortar, nails ripped from his hands as he drag his screaming body up.

    Meanwhile panic has broken out as people try their damndest to get inside somewhere secure. Doors are closed to people as a mob mentality break out.

    Police fire on the climber, only to watch in abject misery as their bullets have no affect on a man driven by insane levels of adrenaline.

    The regret in their eyes as hey realise they should have been running too.

    Despite the fact that the ant has next to no immune system, I still respect the hell out of them. Not because they hurt like a bitch when they bite you in swarms, though that doesn't make me respect them less. Not because they build shit faster than your most competent human craftsmen, though that certainly doesn't make me respect them less, either. Not even because they attack things that are many times larger than they are.

    I respect the hell out of them because of a paranoid belief that they'll come for me if I don't.

    There's one species affecting ants where the ant is compelled to run back into the nest. If another any sees it acting erratically, it'll grab the infected ant, take it as far away from the nest as possible and then dump it.

    If the infected ant ever makes it into the nest, it will then burst and infect the entire colony.

    You noticed the white furry stuff on your back on the third day when it started itching, but didn't take too much notice. After all, it wasn't as if you could just take a bath when you were homeless. You tried your best to scrub it off.

    On the eighth day, it had spread all down your arm and round to your chest. You developed the cough, then, as if something sticky had crawled down your throat.

    By the tenth day your hair was more white than brown. You were raving by that point, arms flailing stiffly as you tried to climb the buildings on the town outskirts.

    On the fifteenth day you reached the top of the church. Your death grip around the cross was hard to remove.

    The next day you were dead. dead as the fungus ate into your brain and your bones fell apart to release more spores.

    Soon your children would be everywhere.

    The jewel wasp immobilizes its prey with its stinger.
    It proceeds to conduct neurosurgery using its stinger, using its venom to prevent intelligent movement in the prey, leaving it to basic twitching.
    The antennae are removed and blood is sucked from the holes before the cockroach is dragged away.
    Legs are laid on top of the cockroach. Larvae develops, burrows inside the still-living, still complacent cockkroach. It hollows it out and cocoons inside it. A few weeks later, a new jewel wasp bursts out of the carcass, alive and healthy.

    As far as I can remember, those birds eat snails anyway so climbing up high only makes them more noticable to the bird. Also, I'm not sure, but I think the birds themselves aren't really affected by it, they just shit out the parasites while flying and then it gets eaten by snails and the cycle continues.

    Campaign idea: you and the rest of your party are parasitic fungi. you just recently grew from a spore, presumably inside a giant snail. you must infect its eye stalks before the bird migration season so that you may be eaten. you will have to plan your attack carefully, working your way up through whatever system you choose; circulatory, digestive, nervous, etc. fight off the snail's horrendous defenses, such as immune cells, antibodies, even other diseases and fungi who are all going for the eyes. brave hazardous organs that secrete acids, toxins, and mucus.

    Consider that one type of fungus that mind controls the ant into going back to the colony before exploding.

    Now, a fungus like that affecting a human would probably have to be more complex, and humans are smart enough to run away from percieved infection. So, imagine in this case if the man stumbling around muttering gibberish was compelled to grab the first person he could find in a big hug, pulling his face as close to the stranger's as possible. Then stalks grow out of his nostrils, his ears, welling up out of his throat, each one tipped with a bud full of spores. Then the spores are all released into the stranger's face, the infected man dies and collapses. The victim stumbles back coughing wildly, not sure what just happened.

    It will be several days before his thoughts start to fall apart and only then will he realize the truth.

    I actually based an online superhero RPG around this (homebrew system, not M&M).

    A cosmic-level macro-scale version of Cordyceps was basically the settings version of Galactus, called the World Eater Strain. Almost universally infectious, it invaded an organism, first attacking the nervous system to get control of it. Then, it commands them to gather in large number, all the while producing large numbers of spores in the form of a black gunk that was extremely difficult to damage without aerosolising it. The infected gather and climb up, up and up, to the highest point on the local landscape.

    They then construct a fruiting body out of as much of the local uninfected bio-matter as can be gotten a hold of (animals, plants, humans etc). This is where it diverts from the fungus, in that they next essentially build an egg, using all available bio matter (including themselves).

    When the infection reached the right stage, the egg hatched into the infection vector that would leave the planet and search out and infect new ones (kind of like Galactus's Heralds). Their flight is powered by all the gathered biomatter, and in cases take-off has been known to reach relativistic speeds.

    Obviously they beat it, though.

    The infection tended to spread in the early stages; before causing them to gather and build, the fungus incited extreme feral rage in its victims, causing them to lash out at uninfected organisms. Either this would kill them or infect them by getting the gunk in their bloodstream via an open wound.

    These beserkers made up the main body of the enemy, but later stages of the infection adapted host bodies to defend the nest, which allowed a variety of threats for the party.

    Went down really well, actually.

    I like those threads. Heard of the slugs and shitfungi earlier (thanks, again, Bogleech. ) So I'll mention a few more things.

    - Toxoplasma gondii is a very common protist. It can change the behavior patterns of mice, removing their fear of cats to get to its final, feline host. There's evidence it can change human behavior as well, it reportedly makes women more attractive and aggressive.
    - The lancet fluke likewise brainwashes ants into climbing long blades of leaf so that they can be eaten by livestock.
    - Neurocysticercosis results from tapeworm eggs hatching near the brain, a place they were never meant to be. In order to survive, they produce cysts, slowly driving you insane by pooping all over your brain.
    - Candiru fish are parasites that live in gillslits of other fish. They are reported to climb up the urinal channels of people and die there, though only one such case is recorded.
    - Schistosoma haematobium adults live in your bladder, cause it to be calcified and you to pee blood.
    - Metagonimus yokagawai fluke takes a more direct approach and simply drills its way into human body. It usually goes for the guts, but can end up in interesting places such as the brain or the heart with obvious results.

    There are also parasites that eat a shark's eyes and dangle off it. The shark actually benefits from it because its other senses are keen enough to compensate lack of eyes, and it eats any fish that come to catch the delicious, wriggling eyeworms.

    The amphipod phronima eats salp, hollows the inside and dumps its eggs there, using the corpse of its former prey as a safe haven for both it and its children. I like how this one is striking a "Promotions!" (Phronimotions?) pose.

    Why create imaginary parasites when real life ones already exist ?


    Statistically about 30% of the persons posting ITT are hosts to Toxoplasma gondii, a small parasite living in the brain.
    While very rarely lethal for the host it has the interesting property of modifying its neural behavior to make it take more risks for its usual way of propagating is to get the host (always a mamal) to get killed and eaten by another mamal. Mice infected with it in labs are shown to no longer fear the scent of cats unlike uninfected ones.
    Of course humans are not typical mamals and rarely get eaten in the wild and the most risk-junkies get are car accidents yet the idea that about a third of the world population has an altered behavior because of this small parasite is fascinating.

    Too bad they're infiltrated by cults of Slaaneshi aphids. Aphids can give birth so fast that they can be pregnant (or during the process of birth) the moment they are born. They also need no males as they are capable of reproducing parthenogenically, so it's essentially a giant, eternal lesbian orgy. If they feel like taking some cock, they give birth to the males during the autumn, and then the lesbian birthfest continues.

    They also drain sugary water from plants so fast that some of it leaks out of their back. Truly creatures that would make Prince of Excess proud. I always did like the concept of a permanently horny lesbian aphid girl that drips sweet syrup from her vagina.

    >>4434148 the idea that about a third of the world population has an altered behavior because of this small parasite is fascinating

    I don't think the third of the world population infected with this parasite has any altered behavior because of it. The information about this is completely non-scientific. For a start, the parasite comes from cats. Any research done on the "average of what an infected person is like" should be read as the following: "cat-liking people are more likely to be like this". If there was a study of the same kind of people who prefer dogs, it is 100% likely you would get results like "They are more likely to be aggressive". And if these dogs had a parasite, then this parasite would be to blame.

    These kind of behavior-altering parasites are specifically tailored to certain species. This parasite exists to target rats. It isn't surprising at all that it can manage to survive in a human, or that it can cause health problems in the few individuals with a weak system, but thinking that it still changes behavior is something else. The information on this subject, such as seen on the wikipedia page, is shady and contradictatory. For example, one research claims it makes men passive while another says it makes them take more risks. That is quite a problem.

    Well, there's also quite a lot of poisonous birds. Not only their flesh - their feathers are coated in poison. The same kind that poison dart frogs use.

    While those toxins are less potent than the dart frogs', Chinese writings also tell of the zhen-bird, of which venom was powerful enough to be used in assassinations. No such species were discovered near China, but we may be in for a pleasant surprise. Like flying, poisonous dinosaurs that those birds are.

    this bird is almost as tall as you are, and has legs that more closly resemble a velociraptor than any bird you've ever seen.

    If you are close enough to grab it, you've already been kicked with enough force you rupture your spleen.

    Here's a video of a golden eagle killing a mountain goat that's nearly twice the size of the eagle. How does the eagle do this? By flying at the goat, grabbing it by the leg and then TOSSING ITSELF AND THE GOAT DOWN A CLIFF. It actually maneuvers the goat for the first, short part of the fall so that it slams into an outcropping of rock before going into a final tumble.

    remember /tg/ that while humans may not have any physical means to be a deadly predator that's doesn't mean we aren't deadly. Humans have some of the best endurance of any creature in the animal kingdom and considering how much we can alter the environment to kill our prey we are still one of the most deadly things this psychotic rock has ever created.

    This is not uncommon.
    the vast majority of herbivorous creatures are omnivores that subsist on a mainly plant diet simply because plants don't run away.

    Cows are slow, if they could run like horses, they'd eat small mammals and reptiles in addition to plants.

    Hell, horses eat anything they can catch.
