Those pesky humans. We, Evil Overlords have a tough job with them. They can be set to slaves, but only for relatively short period of time. They promise you loyalty ... and snap! There is a knife stabbed in your back.

Let's get rid of humans and develop servant creatures

Step 1: Killing them all

I am Evil Genius and I possess DNA manipulation device, which can create me any animal I would like. Now it is time, to develop a creature which can kill as many people as possible.

But, how should such animal look like?

And: While simple rats or mosquitoes are great killing machines, they do not kill humans directly. They are just helping diseases to spread. I want this to be personal. I want the animal directly attack humans and kill them. And eat them (who has time to hide all the bodies?)

I call you, my evil henchmen. What do you suggest?

EDIT Oops! I forgot one vital info: I am human too. So those creatures should not kill me. Obviously ;)

  • $\begingroup$ I'm sorry, but as this stands I can't see it being anything but an idea-generation question. There are many different types of animals that are fully capable of bringing down a human, especially if you ignore that pesky detail of humans fighting back. (See some of the answers to my old question How would societal development be impacted if humans were not an apex predator?) How are we going to objectively judge the answers to this? I recommend adding criteria, narrowing this question down and/or focusing it considerably, if you want it to work. $\endgroup$ – a CVn Mar 13 '15 at 9:20
