I have always loved this thing. For one, its a freakin CANNIBAL SPIRIT WITH ELDRITCH PHYSIOLOGY two very creepy things. Another thing is how it looked, and I'm not talking about the Supernatural's bullcrap portrayal of the thing, no son, the wendigo is a deerheaded killing machine of awesomeness, not some stickfigure with fangs.
This is a wendigo. And while yes technically
the stickfigure is a possible wendigo form, let's face it, this thing is so much freakier. Plus Umarak kinda looks like one so that's fun.
But the real reason I love this thing is because despite how few people know about it (and the ones that do are commonly through until dawn and supernatural which uses the stickman portrayal) is that this thing has been kinda following me throughout my life. I picked up a horror book, something about a wendigo as a wind spirit. Disregard it and do a research topic on mental illnesses two years later, bam, I get cannibalism and learn more about the wendigo. I install an app a year or so ago which uses your location to choose which monsters you fight, boom, where I live is crawling with wendigo.
So yes, wendigo are awesome, continue on with your lives
