thought eater

Stay away, scary flying platypus!pl. n. thought eaters
n., in Dungeons & Dragons, a type of ethereal monster that is attracted by, and feeds on, psionic power; resembles, for some reason, a floating, undernourished platypus.

Addendum: One of the dumbest-looking monsters in the D&D bestiary. Later editions of D&D updated the appearance of the thought eater to more that of a chimeric vulture + tiger.
