Face-Eater Moth, by HolyChicken

Face-Eater Moths are a dangerous insectoid Monster that can grow to abnormal sizes.


Face-Eater Moths, as the name implies, looks very similar to moths. They have insectile, furry legs, 2 fuzzy antenne, a head covered with hair. Their bodies are covered with chitin that is filled with a pattern of black spots. Where they strong differentiate themselves are their mouths, for which they are infamous for; they are filled with razor-sharp teeth.[1]

One type of Face-Eater Moths are referred to as "mothers", as they lay tens of thousands of eggs.[2] They are the size of a two story building.


Face-Eater Moths were the primary enemy during the Moth's Attack on Liscor in the Spring of 23 A. F. They were ultimately defeated by a rainstorm summoned by Pisces, Falene, and Moore, as they were unable to fly through the rain.[2]

Powers and Abilities[]

Their horrifyingly sharp teeth allow them to bite faces clean off, hence the name, and tear through arms.

When they become aggressive they open their mouths and emit a terrifying, high-pitched shriek that almost sounds like laughter, loud and hysteric.[1]

After being killed, many moths continue to harbor larvae inside them, as a repopulation technique.[3] If not properly eliminated, through burning or destruction, a permanent population of moths may continue to reside in the targeted city.


  • Liscor's dungeon housed a huge swarm of tens of thousands of Face-Eater Moths.There were at least nine moths that were larger than Erin's inn[2], while even the smaller ones were the size of a wagon. Before Ylawes saw them fyling out of the dungeon, he didn’t think they could reach such a gigantic size. The biggest one he had ever seen prior to that was mounted on a wall while only being as large as a Troll.[1]
