Magna Karchinos (ユーバーカリカノス, Yūbā Karikanosu) are Carapaceons.

Physiology

Magna Karchinos are massive Carapaceons, being of similar size to the Flying Wyverns Akantor and Ukanlos. Its shell is gray with red and blue blotches. The red blotches are on the left right of its body while the blue blotches are on its right side. It has two pairs of thick legs with brown spines and three sideways-oriented claws on each leg. It has a pair of long wiry antennae. It also has a pair of huge pincers which resemble dragon skulls, with black spots that resemble eye sockets and serrated edges which give the impression of sharp teeth. Its left pincer has red stripes while its right pincer has blue stripes. It has a long, flattened, paddle-shaped tail.

Abilities

Magna Karchinos rely mostly on their immense physical strength to kill enemies. They are capable of transferring electricity from their antennae to their claws, granting them the ability to use electrical attacks. They are also able to use magnetism by doing so.

Information

Magna Karchinos
Magna Karchinos Icon by TheElusiveOne Massive Carapaceons with fearsome pincers that resemble dragon skulls. By gripping their antennae, they can channel electricity from their feelers into their claws, granting them the ability to use electricity and magnetism-based attacks.


Taxonomy

  • Order: Decapoda
  • Infraoder: Unknown
  • Family: Karchinos

A massive Carapaceon, Magna Karchinos rival Shen Gaoren as the largest Carapaceon.

Habitat Range

Magna Karchinos seem to live exclusively in the Highland, as the area is large enough to accommodate these gargantuan Carapaceons. They occasionally travel to the Tower Summit in search of food.

Ecological Niche

Thanks to their size and power, Magna Karchinos are apex predators, feasting on anything smaller than themselves. The only thing that could pose a threat to an Magna Karchinos is another creature of similar size and power.

Biological Adaptations

First, Magna Karchinos is enormous, especially for a Carapceon. The average size of a fully grown Magna Karchinos is approximately 3089 cm, just 40 cm more than an adult Akantor. They have large pincers in comparison to their body, each pincer reaching more than a quarter of its body length. The shape of their pincers are also unique, as both of them resemble the skull of a dragon. They have block spots that resemble eye sockets and nostrils, and large, triangular serrations that give the impression of sharp teeth. The legs are thick, covered in brown spines, and have a circular foot with three claws each that point away from the rest of the body. Its head has stalked eyes and a pair of antennae that are long, thick, and wiry. These antennae constantly produce electricity. By grabbing onto their antennae, Magna Karchinos can transfer the electricity to its claws. This grants it the ability to use electrical attacks and to manipulate magnetism. However, it has only a finite amount of electricity in its claws, so it has to charge up again with its antennae once it runs out of power.

Behavior

Magna Karchinos will attack anything they see.
