What Even ARE Storm Creatures?

Recommended Posts

   While it hasn't rightfully kept me from making an OC of one; the My Little Pony movie goes into no detail, from what I can find, of what the blue blazes a Storm Creature even is. They're the grunts of the Storm King's army, so It could be rightfully suspected that the Storm King himself counts as one, but from reading his entry on the MLP Wiki, it doesn't seem like they even knew what they were doing for long with his design. The best we have there is that he's just "satyr-like." At one point in the movie they call him cloven hooved, but we see his feet and they're two-toed and look soft at that. If even we can derive any sort of description from Storm Creatures from him.

  Even in the movie, their faces are hidden in masks despite often showing them as rather expressive. Next to minotaurs, what we have here is possibly the most bipedal & humanoid species in Equestria and yet we shuffle them off as nothing more than faceless cannon fodder! Clearly, the Storm King had to come from somewheres, so there has to be more of his kind where he came from, if he didn't bring them along with in his conquests. 

 Any theories? I'm kind of guessing something like a primate Yeti. The Storm King has been described as being similiar to the yeti that showed up in the Yakyakistan episode; known as Snowbutt McTinkles  by the artists who developed it.

Maybe the Storm King has scientists that work for him and created them in a lab, which means he could replicate them as many times as he wanted and create an army.

And yes I know this probably really far fetched.

As far as I know the storm Kings intentions are pretty much the same as Tirek, taking all the power, and destroy everything.

I at first assumed that they were the same species as the Storm King that were wearing masks, but apparently those are their actual faces. Not only that, but they seem to have three-towed paws as opposed to Storm King's two-toed hooves. It's possible they may be related in some way, but I don't know if they've ever been given names.

Well, it can be assumed a bit that the one individual with importance shown would be made to look a bit different to show their story importance. They can't be replaceable clones and such, because jokes were made to show them as individuals capable of emotion or having idle, cute chitchat with each other.

Yeah like Queen Chrysalis is a Changeling even though she doesn't look like the others, and the Storm King is the leader of the storm creatures, so of course he's going to look different. I mean, think about it, King Thorax and Pharynx don't look like the other Changelings either.

They can't really be gorillas. I mean, they do look kinda like satyr/gorilla hybrids wearing permanent masks. Although it's most likely that they're just their own made up species. Think about it!
