The Bunyip is a monster found in Australian folklore, mythology, and cryptozoology - dating back to ancient Aboriginal myth the Bunyip became very famous when settlers came to the Outback and the story was altered through the years with many regional varieties seeming to exist.

The Bunyip varies from being depicted as a strange but relative harmless creature of the Australian outback to being a gigantic man-eating river-demon with a terrible roar. Appearance-wise the Bunyip is fairly unique in the fact it doesn't really have an "official" appearance and many different varieties of the monster have been depicted over the years - a trait it shares with the Bogeyman.
