It comes when hell's master doesn't have another choice to fight against the good side. With each step the Hell-ephant kills all life within 0,5 miles around it. It eats bones and calcined flesh. It uses his tusks to kill angels and other flying good warriors.

Concept: Ghartharian Rox
No one could say there hadn’t been signs of warning.
Ever since the new skyscraper was raised the city had changed.
The vast increase in reports of missing persons should by itself have been
enough for the authorities to take action.
The Dagherion Tower – instantly nicknamed the Devil’s Building,
and later The Dark Cloister - had not only been the centre of many weird
events and extraordinary sounds, but had also literally emptied every block
surrounding it, causing shops to close and firms to look for office space
As usual though, the cases were sloppily investigated, and the forces put in
place to uphold order were too busy elsewhere. But then again, what could
they have done? After all, the last department with knowledge enough to
deal with the matter closed down in 1890. Necromancy and Demonology
simply did not exist in contemporary consciousness.
Not until right now.
They had managed to summon an Ancient One. A Ghartharian Rox, the most
massive of furies in the nine levels of Hell had arrived. Everyone beheld it
with utter presence. Fear was the name of the day. We all stood still and
stared at what was left of reality, and we all knew; there would be no
memories of this day.

Rejected from poll for reasons discussed in the WIP thread. Please flesh out your designs for COW.
Concept: Demon of O'frin
The Demon of O'frin,
protecting the gate to hell itself,
guarding its eggs of evil and destruction,
living in the lands of the underworld,
searching for the life of immortality.
this cold blodded beast is living on flying demons (gargoyles) and heat
from the mighty volcano O'frin, in the darkest parts of the underworld.
the eggs from the demon need the heat from lava to grow and live and is protected by the male demon of the volcano.

Concept: Goyer's Giant
"When finally the source of the cacophony was located, our plight turned from miserable to catastrophic. We had located one of the 'colossi' the guides had been so anxious to avoid.
It stood on six muscular legs, easily 15 meters tall and nearly as wide. It was situated in one of the main caverns where the heat was not so suffocating. Four enormous, eyeless heads writhed purposefully at the end of tortured, misshapen necks, and blisters filled with some sort of greenish phosphor bulged sickly from most of its thin, vein-riddled flesh, with the odd one burst and dripping the viscous fluid onto the rocks, where it hissed and evaporated. Wriggling cilia coated the beast's undercarriage, radiating massive heat that we could feel even at the other side of the cave. Lithe, bony, rib-like protrusions on its sides appeared at first to be static, but as we watched one of its heads homed in on a small flock of the large bats we had encountered in the cave mouth (see pg. 57); to our amazement the concealed lower end of this 'rib' wrenched free and its barbed tip flashed outward with a speed we hadn't expected. A bat was speared and, shrieking horribly, stuffed into the multi-hinged jaw of the attendant head.
From a scientific standpoint I wanted to further observe the creature, but [our sole remaining guide] Orthos insisted we move on before the giant caught our scent. Remembering the uncanny speed of the bat's demise, I didn't argue."

known by the lesser fiends of hell as Satan's pitbulls, these infernal colossi romp about the planes in a perpetual state of frenzy, much like hyperactive murderous puppies. The sonic crack of their whiplike tentacles as they rip through hapless groups of the damned can be heard for hellmiles, and never fail to bring a smile to the crooked lips of their master

Close to rejection. Perspective issues on the building and anatomy issues on the creature (beyond skirting the humanoid rule) . The overall composition is nice, but it needs more work.
Concept: Fire demon
One of the few survants of the mighty ruler of Hell has come to destroy the one weak leagacy of them who stand upon the dark ruler. Hes mission is simple. Search and destroy them who prey and preach for the weaker God. Everything that opposes to it or even dears to stand in its way shall face that same destiny.

The Wyrmcrow, last of it's murder, is roused from its infernal slumber. Hell minions prepare to release it's Tartaran iron-forged chains, loosing the colossal beast to flap and slither from the blackend landscapes of the Pit to the Realm Above.

Feeding on the Essence of the Void, the Colossal Strider roams the eternal plains of Hell.If it is worth doing, it is worth doing well.

Concept: The Sin Eater
"They came just before the Apocalypse, these creatures first appeared in droves of a dozen or so, most of them no larger than a man. But after gorging upon their victims, these monsters grew in size and their shapes changed. Each more grotesque than the other. The survivors have called it the Sin-Eaters. It is not known for whatever purpose they have been sent from our Gods here on our world but they have been efficiently killing every man, woman and child that it deems not worthy of saving. Now they have dominated civilization as it is, only picking up what's left of their wake...I'm afraid I shall write no more and it's far too late to repent..."
