An urban fantasy fighter struggles hand to hand with a human-sized monster with green skin and huge sharp teeth. A researcher stands nearby looking in a large scroll. 

Fighter: What is this thing?

Researcher: According to folklore, it’s a ravenous bog demon, eater of unwary travelers.

The fighter is now on the ground with the monster over them, the monster’s teeth inches from the fighter’s face.

Fighter: Does folklore say how to beat it?

Researcher: Yes. First, let it eat you.

Fighter: What?!

The researcher cheerfully holds up a dagger.

Researcher: Don’t worry. Once it eats its fill and falls asleep, I’ll slit open its stomach. Then you’ll jump out perfectly intact. All the folktales say so. 

Fighter glares.
