This makes me think of the grey ooze apocalypse theory, that eventually we'll make a nanomachine to eat up the carbon based oil spills for example, but they malfunction and will end up eating all the biomass on earth.
The more I dive into the expanded universe of Star Wars the more I think the Jedi were children in thinking the Sith species were the biggest and scariest threat to the galaxy
What is Bendy and the Ink Machine doing in Star Wars?
A Star Wars horror game is deff needed now after this. They did a solid job with Jedi fallen order so hopefully they dig more into other genres in the Star Wars universe.. a horror game n a open world game based in the slums of coruscant..
are you sure carpenter didnt invent this "thing"
How do you say it? Nall Nall?
Is it just me or does the Mnggal-Mnggal remind me of John Carpenter's The Thing
It's creatures like these that make me wish we just had the option to glass planets when they pop up in the Star Wars universe...
This is eerily similar to the flood. Nightmare fuel
so its "The Thing"
Little bit like John Carpenter's the thing
I dunno... A little unoriginal. And it doesn't make sense it would be an evil being. A creature of this cosmic scale and age wouldn't need to bother with an emotion like sadism.
if you can only kill it with fire how bad would it be if some spores got onto (courasaunt?) the fish planet mando was on recently?
Sounds like somebody read Dean Koontz's "Phantoms" and based many aspects of the Mnggal-Mnggal on the Ancient Enemy from that Dean Koontz novel.

I know the style is different, but there is NOTHING on this topic.
The name 'Flood' would apply in more to this thing
Every time I hear about StarWars and a parasite I can't help but think about that one Clone Wars episode that scared me as a kid lol.
I think I've finally been given the right to say KILL IT WITH FIRE
Multdimensional dangerous clay that posseses you
So they are the star wars equivalent of the flood
Don't believe the Big Jedi lie - Mnggal-Mnggal is just the flu.
What is the art piece on the right in the thumbnail?
Meow meow? What's Meow meow?
It reminds me of the thing
Exterminatus is in order here, I think.
Sounds like the flood...or the shoggoth.
What's the Flood, Migos, the Mnggal-Mnggal, and the necromorphs have in common?:
So basically offbrand version of "The Thing", except less gruesome and bloody
Reminds me of the beast from homeworld cataclysm
So basically “ The Thing “ of the Star Wars universe
Wait, hold my death sticks, I gotta hit up starkiller base real quick.
I’ve never seen a better reason to call an Exterminatus
This video displeased the senate
So the Flood basically.
Vex from Destiny anyone?
I read it as menggal-menggal, which has absolutely no meaning in Malay.
This is just dead space
Burn it with fire.
I tapped on this video (on mobile) just to hear you pronounce it
Legends likes to make it so the events of the movies were far from the scariest and most threatening things in the galaxy.
So basically, they are the flood from halo but in star wars
a being that could potentially be omniscient, has an absurd reach and is naturally evil? scariest thing in star wars sounds about right.
The flood has mutated
Shit this is StarWars Flood
this is the Star Wars version of the flood
So the halo flood
Lol what are these visuals tho
Halo's "the Flood" comes to mind.
Mugg Fallow is a planet in dire need of a Death Star or Base Delta Zero.
I really miss the more weird 90s early 2000s side of Starwars. I just don't see that side ever returning with Disney cannon
" Why would you do that? "
Mnggal-Mnggal: " Hehe funny. "
I still think Abeloth is the most disturbing
What is it, more Stormtroopers?
Why does Star Wars have so many scary things
This is why I barely include legends into my head canon
So The Thing and The Flood in one?
Makes me think of Prey.
So basically the Flood made it to a Galaxy Far Far away.
So wanna use starkiller base on them?
Should have used scenes from The Stuff lmaooo
This is just the flood of Star Wars
im sure that somebody already mentioned it - but guys, im happy to know, that there is analog for Flood and Brother Moons in SW universe. That will be great anthagonist for chonologically last part.
Ok, say I’m stupid but the Flood would win, they have taken over a Halo ring twice and destroyed the Greater Ark and Greater Array... sooo maybe they didn’t destroy the eleven rings and the Greater Ark they use that one this bitch and it’s game over
Pus of Man from Dark Souls.
This would be a perfect SCP Entry
Definitely not Disney approved
Little did I know, my x-gf was actually a Mnggal-Mnggal...
Hmm...not unlike my ex-wife, am I right?
It kind of just of just feels like a toned down version of the flood from Halo.
The flood of starwars.
Love that 40k reference pic you threw in there
So the mnggal mnggal is just an asshole goop.
So basically the Star Wars version of the Flood
Planetary living ocean talking to the visitors, it sounds like some callback to Stanislaw Lem "Solaris" book.
"The now now"
Why really puckers my ass about the ST isn’t the Mary Sue stuff, it’s the lazy assed story telling. They had the entire extended universe from which to draw inspiration, and we got a warmed over bowl of 50 year old oatmeal. What a missed opportunity.
So it's just John Carpenter's the thing.
The entire thing being an ocean on its planet it’s kinda reminiscent of the founders/changelings from Star Trek
They’re a liquid species that naturally exist as an ocean where each individual is linked to each other to essentially form one collective mind
Though this link is only maintained though physical contact
its like a Lovecraftian monster only with less racist under and/or overtones
BURN IT IN HOLY FIRE!!!!!!
So, a purely evil and completely interconnected version of the Flood. I noticed how you very carefully avoided connecting the two.
So... the flood
Me: Do doo do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do!
On the podcast app I use, the Exploring Series uses the psudonym mgnaal-mgnaal.
The original living ocean thing is from Stanislaw Lem's Solaris
Sounds like grey goo
Id love to see , their home planet . How they'd react to a sudden appearence of life so close to home etc
Excharts loves Star Wars & Halo. These guys are nasty but I think the flood is scarier
...So it's a Symbiote.
So the mnggal-mnggal are basically the klyntar, to a degree
Sounds like the flood from halo
Kinda sounds like the Star Wars version of the venom symbiote in a way
Me: Laughs in triple layer beskar hazmat suit.
This is really cool man! Love this channel BTW. It's almost like a combination of The Flood from Halo and The Pathogen from Prometheus. I started to get Lovecraft vibes fairly early on in this vid only for you to mention that later on
3:46 missed a perfect chance to put a clip from the waters of mars
