Fusion between a human and certain horned beetles. Roughly the size of a rhinoceros and packed with muscle, a Mandibite can easily uproot trees and crush cars in its thin but unbreakable horns. As with its base insects, it suffers from a body suited more for close combat than effective locomotion, and must waddle awkwardly from place to place, balancing ape-like on its forelimbs.
Fierce though they may be in battle, Mandibites want little more than to eat and sleep. Their favorite snacks are bee and wasp nests, which they pluck from trees and devour like fruit. Females have shorter but equally destructive horns, more jagged and axe-like.
