A mythical creature with a lion's body, a man's face, a scorpion's tail, a bat's wings, and lots of rows of really sharp teeth. These guys usually don't get along with dragons. Personally, I'd side with the dragon if a manticore and a dragon got into a row, cause I way like dragons better. Oh yeah, manticores are usually orangey-colors.
The manticore had no friends, cause his face was weird-looking.

Manticore- Greek, meaning "Man Eater"

The ultimate badass "mythical" creature. As described in "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" by Newt Salamander:
"The manticore is a highly dangerous Greek beast with the head of a man. the body of a lion, and the tail of a scorpian. As dangerous as the Chimaera (a rare Greek monster with a lion's head, a goat's body, and a dragon's tail), and as rare, the manticore is reputed to croon softly as it devours its prey. Manticore skin repels almost all known charms and the sting causes instant death."
In the foreword of the book, Albus "FABULOUS" Dumbledore admits they are badass.

J.K. Rowling has mentioned this incredible beast several times throughout the Harry Potter series. For example, in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the manticore is said to have escaped a trial because everyone was too scared to go near it.

The award winning movie "Manticore" (2005) is somewhat accurate in showing that the manticore is a badass creature, but it inaccurate in showing that the manticore can be destroyed.

All manticores are born into the super exclusive "BFC" led by two manticores living on Long Island, New York.

Unknowing victim: "Hey is that a manti..." *gets eaten by manticore*

In swinger lingo, a single truly bi male sought after by many couples. They are thought to be so rare that they have attained the status of mythical creatures. Similar to a unicorn.
Many swingers will go their whole lives without seeing two manticores in the same place.

A mythical creature that lives above everyone else, once it decides to attack it can only be soothed by donuts and nicotine.
