The Foghorn Roar by jjnaas The Foghorn Roar by jjnaas
My alter ego The Critical Corydoras feels that movie and video game monsters acting like this makes them seem dumb and therefore less scary.

Bad strategy for hunting, great strategy for claiming territory. At least most dogs seem to think so.

Animals act like this when they attack a competitor, not a prey. A male lion would roar at a nother male before engaging in a fight, in order to try and impress him. And sometimes it'll go no further than the roaring, as the opponent will run away. I mean, I'm no ethologist, but I'm pretty sure that's how that works.

Well, the movie monsters would be scarier if they saw the humans as prey, instead of seeing them as competitor/equal. So my point stands that making them roar makes them less scary.

LOL! The worst is when they put the foghorn roar as a sort-of 'jump scare' right at the end of a trailer (after the title and release date have been shown). Such a cheesy trope.

Hah, I love this! I've often noticed that typical roar in movies especially; I get your point entirely. ^^

Once you start noticing it, you start expecting it. "Ok, here comes the big monster, run away while he executes his roaring animation."
