A Bao A Qu
In Malay mythos, pilgrims attempt to reach the top of the Tower of Victory in Chitor in hopes of obtaining enlightenment. Blocking their path, however, is A Bao A Qu, a shape-shifting tentacled creature that’s a force to be reckoned with. With each level of the tower, A Bao A Qu grows stronger, sucking the life force from pilgrims. Like the boss on the last level in a video game, the color-changing shape-shifter is believed to be at its strongest and has never been surpassed.
