X is for Xing Tian

Name: Xing Tian (means “punished one” or “he who was punished by heaven”

Type: giant

Origin: Chinese mythology

Description: Basically, he’s a headless giant punished by heaven. *grins* Here’s a roughly translated excerpt from Shanhaijing I came across on Wikipedia:

Xingtian fought against [Huang] Di. Di cut off his head, and the head was buried in the Changyang Mountains. But Xingtian, with his breasts as eyes, and his navel as mouth, continued to fight with his axe and shield.

Anyone know of any other “X” creatures? I’m very curious! lol
