Strange monsters from the imagination!

Just curious what strange monsters you people have done in your game

I have made:
Crawling hand: A disembodied hand that crawls along the floor.
Kind of nasty, they live in groups and steal stuff.

Giant Head: A disembodied giant human head.
It's just a giant human head that sits there. If you get to close it will lick up an item.

Giant Dwarf: A giant dwarf, he's as tall as a human.

Hypnotoad: A toad with hypnotic eyes. (From Futurama)
Confuses you and makes you hallucinate

Lard Golem: A shambling humanoid monster made of lard.
It's poisonous to touch. Think nasty rancid lard.

Giant Baby: A giant crying baby, waking all that is near.
It crawls around and cries.

Centaur Archer: It is a horse with a human upper body where the horses head should be.

Disembodied hand and head are already in the game.

Well, in Vanilla there's a skull druj and hand druj, which are just stationary spellcasters, but there's nothing really like Thing from the Addams Family. Zangband had a Disembodied Hand that Strangled People (a reference to Calvin & Hobbes), but I think that was a unique monster; I don't recall any specific Disembodied Heads.

With this and the half-dragons, you should start a variant. You could call it Disturband - the Disturbing Angband.

Oh man... all these names for a kinda horror-y themed variant... that'd be awesome. Especially considering how tense the game is already.
Shame more Roguelikes don't try to go down that path :P

And then, at random intervals, the screen flashes red several times and you hear a maniacal laughter or a loud disturbing riff.
