Sharktopus is the Champion of SyFy’s Monster Madness Battle

Here at Tor.com we are unabashed fans of the tragic and beautiful beast that is Sharktopus. Why do we love Sharktopus so much? Is it the fact that Sharktopus can walk on its tentacles? Or the fact that Sharktopus has its own theme song? Perhaps we love Sharktopus because we know under that genetically engineered exterior of shark/octopus/evil, beats the heart of a slightly less murderous Sharktopus.

Therefore we were happy to learn that the beastie won the SyFy Channel’s recent Monster Madness voting poll! Sharktopus bested a lot of experienced challengers, including Mansquito, a horde of Ice Spiders, and the dreaded Piranhaconda. And though we admit Piranhaconda is not to be messed with, it is no match for the gnashing terror that is Sharktopus.

Here’s to you Sharktopus!


Stubby the Rocket is the voice and mascot of Tor.com. It once tried to meld two unrelated animals together, as well, but now prefers to forget that regrettable hour.

Seeing the screencap above, I must say that my imagination did not do this ridiculousness justice.

Oh, and 'Piranhaconda' is much more fun to say.

@Magnetawolf, I see 'prianhaconda' sounding like 'mahna mahna' from the Muppets here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NA90IlymdZ4 whereas 'sharktopus' comes off more as the old SNL 'landshark' skit http://www.spike.com/video-clips/gytf2i/land-shark

@2TorChris, too funny.

Mr. Spielburg isn't very happy about what you have done to Robotic shark from the the first Jaws movie.
