Screamers are monsters found in the fantasy role-playing game, Might & Magic - although they are not based on an actual specific monster of legend the idea behind them is likely inspired by a great many evil spirits in folklore and fantasy media which drive people insane with their shrieking (such as the iconic Banshee of celtic mythology).

Screamers take the appearance of a severed head which floats without a body and emits a horrific scream when encountered which will drive adventurers insane - this is by far their most feared ability as they are otherwise fairly weak opponents and can be encountered fairly early in the game.
