The Daily Grind: What’s the wackiest MMORPG enemy group you’ve ever fought?

So I’m playing Trove this weekend when I go into a dungeon on one of my lowbies and I realize that the mob that’s kicking my butt is a fridge. I mean that absolutely literally; the mob was a refrigerator. To attack me, it whipped open its doors and shoved out what I think is meant to be a stuffed turkey on a rack. I thought I was going slightly mad, but the Trove wiki backed me up: This is a thing, and I’ve been away from Trove long enough that I’d forgotten about them. Long live the Fridgebots!

For me, that mob is the weirdest I’ve ever tackled in a very long time playing MMOs, and this is a genre that has candy corn elementals and playable babies. What’s the wackiest MMORPG enemy group you’ve ever fought?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

Flyff had some weird mobs. There was one that was kind of like a flying pig thing with a propeller beanie hat.

The animated vegetables and cacti of FF XIV. The latter squeaks when you hit it. o.O

PS/Edit: Honorable mention goes to the Clay Pot Dogs of Blade & Soul.

Trove really takes the cake.
Literally.

Also, how can one forget that Trove lets you fight literal loot piñatas?
One of the kinds of lootboxes you can get from its store are seasonal piñatas, which you release and have to defeat in order to get the loot (and everyone that helps killing it gets just as much reward without reducing in any way how much whoever released the piñata gets). Then, at one of the dungeons, one of the bosses is the god of piñatas, angry at you for breaking its underlings.

In Everquest 2’s second expansion, the first raid zone has you interacting with a group who’s healer had died, and they need you to rez her. They’re bickering during this entire process, assigning blame for the healer’s death. Then they immediately backstab your party by locking you in the room with what killed their healer. Then after you defeat that, you have to fight them outside the final boss’s room.

The Space Madness shiphand from Wildstar always comes to mind. The entire thing is supposed to be one big hallucinatory trip full of rainbows, sparkles, and utter terror. I take your fridge, and raise you a vending machine with legs.
