WENDEGO
Also known as WINDEGO, WENDIGO, WETIKO, WINDAGO, WINDIKOUK

Utterly terrifying Cannibal Monster

You could die of fright just seeing a WENDEGO. That would be the easy way out, for this is a giant starving beast with a never-ending hunger for flesh. Victims are rendered apart and all the parts devoured down to the last tiny bone and droplet of blood.

It carries a feeling of winter famine about it — snow clouds form, trees crack and icy blizzards rise around it.

This gaunt scrawny creature is a warning that there should be a balance between starvation and gluttony. It has come as a lesson to us all.

Heed the warning. Avoid the lesson.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Wendego graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Wendego movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Wendego statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Wendego. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
