Legendary Grumpsnax in the Camsnap universe
So. Aside from its outrageously short-legged journalist, the reality where Kerbie lives differs in one major way from the canonical Bugsnax timeline: when the Grumpuses try to escape the Bugsnax and evacuate, everything goes really, really pear-shaped. (Kerbie-shaped?)
The short version: nobody escapes. But thanks in large part to Eggabell, the Bugsnax hivemind decides not to break them down into Bugsnax. Instead, everyone is transformed into Grumpsnax - creatures made of Snakmatter, with all the properties of Bugsnax, but with the shape, personalities, and abilities (such as speech) of the Grumpuses they came from.
However! Some Grumpsnax are weirder than others, and as you may have guessed, the weirdest Grumpsnax of them all are the ones who originally ate legendary Bugsnax. They're bigger than normal Grumpsnax (although they can compress themselves if they need to be smaller for a while) and have some pretty unusual body plans.
This is pretty long, so Legendary Grumpsnak descriptions are below the cut!
Chandlo, of course, is built like Mama Mewon. There's not a lot of difference between them, except where Mama Mewon has a tick face, the front of Chandlo's melon sports a fruity Grumpus face - and instead of tick legs, his arms and legs have punched their way out. They're made of melon flesh, except for the tops of his paws and the bottoms of his feet, which are protected by a sturdy layer of melon rind.
Another significant difference is that Chandlo is not a watermelon. All the Legendary Grumpsnax are based on slightly different foods from their Bugsnak counterparts, and Chandlo is a honeydew melon! He's pretty uniformly green, and the main difference is his limbs are lighter-colored than the rest of him.
Wiggle, on the other hand, turns into a Grumpus-like dragon - a bit like Falkor from The Neverending Story, if he was a giant rainbow roll with nearly two dozen shrimp for legs. Like Megamaki, her body is made up of segmented roll slices - however, these have no minds of their own. Wiggle's consciousness simply controls all of them, although she can talk through any of them, or (more often) use their voices as backup singers.
Where the classic maki roll is topped with thinly sliced avocado, Wiggle's body alternates avocado and salmon, so her colors are quite striking.
Instead of turning into a giant moth, Cromdo ends up sealed inside a giant calzone cocoon, and it just gets weirder from there! When he finally emerges, he is (again) not a moth, but a giant, four-armed Cromdo made of calzone filling who wears his old cocoon like a stylish jacket. Similar to the Snaxsquatch, his face is made up of smaller food chunks, so it's a little weirdly shaped. His limbs, on the other hand, are simple breadsticks.
Snorpy is the last one to change, and one of the most dramatic. By now you've probably seen a few spidertaur Snorpies, so you know roughly what to expect - but Grumpsnak Snorpy puts a twist on it that makes things even more awkward. Where the Daddy Cakelegs was a conventional birthday cake, Snorpy takes the form of a pineapple upside-down cake, and I do mean upside-down! His legs - which are giant half-slices of pineapple - are attached the "wrong" way to his cakey torso, requiring him to flip over so he's able to walk. Luckily, being a Grumpsnak grants him immunity to blood rush and dizziness, and he's comfortable in any orientation. Being upside down also makes it easier to reach important things, like tools and Chandlo.
And that's all of them! Of course, as legendary Grumpsnax, they also share the responsibility of protecting Snaktooth, but that's a subject for another day.

Compilation of all my inktober lil shadow monsters + their descriptions!
I am aware no one actually cares but im postin anyways biiinch
The weakest, most common form of shadow monsters. i believe all forms of the shadow monsters show up from this one kind. Theyre relatively easy to defeat, but be carefull not to be overwhelmed by their numbers!
One of the simplest forms of the shadow monsters, this one is a bit armored. Not very difficult to defeat, but theyre certainly stronger than the simple forms. be carefull because they come in numbers!
This aerial form didnt impress me at first, but they’ll divebomb and headbutt you mercilessly if you’re not carefull. watch out for their spikes too!
This brute definitely has the power to back up its looks, stay away from it, try to attack from behind or above. It might tackle or swing its arms if you’re too close, Watch out not to get whalloped!
Darn mimics. i thought it was just a chest, but it strung up and slapped me senseless. (reminder to double check every chest we find!)
This first boss was very intimidating, it was the unification of four armored shadow monsters united into one! arms, torso, wheel and head! you have to separate them to properly take them down.
what a strange creature, don’t underestimate it. it kept creating more small shadows from its head, you have to defeat it fast if you dont want to be overwhelmed!
This brawler usualy is solo, but dont overestimate it, its speed and punching technique is very efficient. watch out, when it starts a combo it’ll do some serious damage if you dont block or dodge!
These casters keep their distance from you while they cast magic. close the gap between you and them and they wont be much trouble, but get distracted and you might get zapped and burned!
This shell-like monster’s bite is quite strong, and it’s armor is tough. Wait for it to open its mouth and attack there!
This cute lil guy serves more of a distraction from other enemies than an actual threat, it gets harder to fight if bubbles are popping all around you. they might still try to kick you though, keep it in mind!
this fella is encased in ice, you have to break it if you want to do damage! watch out for when it slides, it might hurt your legs badly!
This cloudy monster is tricky, it has certain eletric powers, as well as it sometimes dodges by cloud hopping! try to keep your stamina when fighting these!
DANGER! this is an incredibly volatile monster! it’ll rushingly try to fly at you and explode! be carefull to hit it back or dodge it! they fly at you soon as they feel movement.
This driller really caught me offguard by attacking from below. wait for them to surface then beat them down fast!
hard to engage these without water or ice magic! keep your distance and dont let them touch you, they’re scorching hot and aggressive! luckly they usualy cant move far from lava pools.
This machine of war has more than one tool in its arsenal, keep moving when fighting it, try to use its slowness against it, try and attack from each side! its quite bulky, but you might be able to overwhelm it or even bounce its missles back at it!
this angelical monster isnt particularly aggressive, but it will buff and heal its allies if you dont deal with it, plus it can use light magic to harm you.
This demonic monster is quite volatile and twitchy, keep away and watch out for their flame bites! ranged attacks might be able to deal with them before their speed catches you off guard.
These flower monsters dont move from the spot theyre on, but they can still attack you with ranged orbs of poisonous goo.
This monster will attack very fast if you get close, it’s very agile and might dodge ranged attacks you use! you have to beat it at its own game and match its speed with your own!
This monster moves slow and isnt very offensive, but dont underestimate its defenses and counter attacks. be ready to attack them with everything you got!
This eerie wizard monster has mastery on many elemental magic, as well as the ability to teleport. It’s quite difficult to take down, beware of attacking it when there are others nearby, it’s best to single it out!
This monster is aggressive and fast, and its bites are nasty. its watch out for the tackles and kicks as well! the neck is its weak spot.
the smoke this monster is composed with it is very toxic-- you have to destroy the core producing the smoke to finish it, but luckly it cant to much to harm you.
These hands cant see, but they will grasp and try to drown you at the sign of movement. be ready to finish it if you get close!
Something is wrong with this one, it feels corrupted. it’ll constantly voimit that sludge, and slowly try to aproach and barf at you. luckly its not hard to beat.
This strange arcane rune monster seems to have control over various kinds of magic, even ones capable of slowing and stopping down time! luckly they move incredibly slowly, but their magic is the real deal.
This corrupted polycephalus will go berzerk if it notices you, watch out, its tackles and claws are not messing around. destroy every head to get rid of it.
Easily the strongest class of monster we’ve met so far, they’re big, are physicaly strong, and have many tools in their arsenal for a fight, such as breathing fire and ice, or causing great wind with their wings, or slapping you with their tail, as well as being very durable.
What in the world is this? its like many of the weakest forms of shadows fused into one flood of monsters that aggressively try to consume you. its best not to engage, unless you have a lot of magic to defend yourself.
