Gremlins were invented by the British Royal Air Force.

I did not know that.

Guys, you realize you're arguing over the physical aspects of a monster that's been part of folklore for centuries, right? Mythology can't even tell the same story twice as it is!

And anyway, HOW are we forgetting the raw, Dr. Who-esque awesome that is the Flatwoods Monster?!

Zombies in their current state could arguably be called american mythology, though the came over with the Haitians to new orleans back when it was a french territory.
Though those zombies were resurrected from the dead using "Evil magic" AKA brain-destroying nerve toxin, leaving behind a highly suggestible shell of a man.

The current zombie is of course created from disease, eats human flesh, and is now only recently able to cover much more ground, possibly borrowing these elements from the wendigo of native american mythology, which can be created when a man eats human flesh.

West Virginia is America's weird shit tornado tongue.gif

We owe them Mothman, the Flatwoods Monster, the Snake Handler religion and more.

The awesome dress-wearing Flatwoods Monster was actually a misinterpretation of the original description. This is an illustration of how it "really" looked:

Batsquatch is a other silly yet awsome monster. The Batsquatch is purported to have purple-coloured skin, blood-red eyes, wings like those of a Pterodactyl, and a head which resembles a cross between a primate and a bat. The creature's name is based on Sasquatch, although the two cryptids have never been directly linked to each other.

I wonder if it likes to basket ball in a mecha...sorry.

Well there a actually alot of American mythological creatures especially in rural areas (which is just about all of the US at one point): it's just alot of them have there basis in the cultures of the immigrant groups (if not Native American) and have largely been forgotten in modern times.

How could the Jackalope not be mentioned yet:

That's not a thunderbird, that's Argentavis, an actual extinct animal.

We forgot Cthulhu!
user posted image
Cthulhu is in theory an American made monster.
He may not be in any actual myths or legends, but he's been around long enough and circulated through enough cult material to be considered a legendary American monster.
So has every other Old One, in fact...

I defy you to find a random person on the street who can name anything from Lovecraft other than Cthulhu.

Crawfordsville Monster, a weird one

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crawfordsville_monster

Between urban legends, one-off sightings that started hysteria, and the folklore of various peoples, there are just as many monsters as there are in any other nation (Japan included). Japan had a type of Renaissance period when they put their oral traditions into text and other formats; this is where we get the documentation on these yokai. The US has too many cultures and too many sources, and they have not been complied properly. Notable creatures I remember:

One African-American legend of a woman who found a baby in the woods; this child later turned out to be something like a Coconut Crab or giant spider. There are also black dog variations in African-American folklore, not to mention vampire-type characters and various bogeymen.

The full Native American bestiary is almost as diverse as that of Japan. Navajo legends have armless-legless giants that can kill with their eyes, and nearby they talk about harpy type women that catch people with their hanging breasts! The Kwakiutl have a fun shark creature, the Yagim.

The vast majority of US based creatures on this list are based on folklore. There is plenty of Native American stuff not listed here.
