Garg aka Gargantua (Half-Life monster)

Garg

(aka Gargantua) (Half-Life alien)


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Context

This creature is from the original, 1998/99 HλLF-LIFE video game. For more context you can refer to those two articles :


Background

  • Base Of Operations: Xen.
  • Size: Really big (30’ tall).


Powers and Abilities

Huge, tough and really fast. At medium and long range, they’ll blast you with flame. Closer in, they’ll slap you around with their oversized forearms.

They’re almost impossible to kill with conventional weapons.

Fortunately, they’re not too bright and tend to forget about potential victims if they’re out of sight for a couple of minutes.


History

The Black Mesa complex is a private high-tech research installation (with strong ties to the U.S. government) located somewhere in the American Southwest. An accident in the Anomalous Materials Lab caused a dimensional breach into the world known as Xen.

A few gargantuæ fell through the breach and can be found in the larger open areas of the complex.


Description

A towering biped with thick, powerful legs, massive blunt arms and an oversized head with large red eyes.


Personality

Follows anything that moves and tries to roast and/or crush it. It is unrevealed why they do this, as they’ve never been observed to ingest their victims.


DC Universe History

This would be a moderate-level threat to the Earth, probably a good challenge for Young Justice or a similarly-powered team. It might be a good solo challenge for Batman.
