In the world of cryptids, there are two creatures that consistently seem to come up in conversation: the skinwalker and the wendigo. But what exactly are these creatures, and if they were to fight, who would win? Let's take a closer look at each creature to find out.

The skinwalker is a cryptid that is said to be native to Native American folklore. The skinwalker is said to be a type of shaman that has the ability to transform into any animal they desire. Some tales even say that skinwalkers can take on the form of multiple animals at once. While the skinwalker is said to be incredibly powerful, they are also said to be very evil.
The versatility of the Skinwalker might remind some of the tales of Bigfoot. For those who are fans of such legends, our Bigfoot Stuffed Animal Plushies offer a cuddly counterpart.
What is a skinwalker's weakness?
According to some tales, a skinwalker can be killed by silver bullets or blessed weapons. Additionally, it is said that strong prayers and protections can ward off their powers.
While the tales of skinwalkers are chilling, some cryptids have a more mysterious allure. If you're intrigued, you might enjoy our Mothman Plush.
How to know if a skinwalker is near?
Some say that the presence of a skinwalker can be detected by the scent of sulfur or rotting meat. Others claim that their eyes will glow yellow or red in their animal form.
How to kill a skinwalker?
Some believe that the only way to permanently kill a skinwalker is to burn their human form while they are in their animal shape. However, it is also said that they can come back to life if their human form remains intact.
How to summon a skinwalker?
It is not recommended to attempt to summon a skinwalker, as they are said to be vicious and unpredictable creatures. However, some say that performing a specific ritual at a crossroads or gravesite at midnight can attract their attention.
Summoning a skinwalker might be a risky endeavor, but if you're fascinated by cryptids of the night, our Fresno Nightwalker Plush is a delightful representation
The wendigo is a cryptid that is said to be native to Canadian folklore. The wendigo is said to be a spirit that possesses people who have committed cannibalism. Once possessed, the person afflicted with the wendigo will turn into a creature that is half-human and half-deer. The wendigo is said to be incredibly fast and strong, and it is said that the only way to kill a wendigo is by burning it alive.

Where can I find a wendigo?
Unfortunately, the wendigo is just a mythical creature and cannot be found in real life. Some people claim to have seen or encountered wendigos, but these sightings are usually not credible and are likely merely coincidences or misunderstandings. If you're interested in learning more about the wendigo, the best option would be to research and read folklore and legends about the creature.
The forests of northern Minnesota and Canada are often said to be a hot spot for wendigo sightings, but again, these claims should be taken with a grain of salt. It is always important to approach cryptid sightings with skepticism and an open mind.
The Wendigo might be a terrestrial mystery, but if you're also fascinated by beings from beyond our world, our Aliens Plushies are a must-see.
How do you know if a wendigo is hunting you?
Some say that the presence of a wendigo can be detected by the scent of decay. Others claim that their eyes will glow green in the darkness. Additionally, it is said that if one hears whispers or howls in the wind, it could mean that a wendigo is nearby.
How do Wendigos see?
There is no definitive answer to this question as the wendigo is a mythical creature. However, some folklore suggests that wendigos have glowing eyes, indicating they may have some sort of heightened vision. Other tales depict them as having deer-like features, so it is possible they see similarly to how deer see.
How do you become a wendigo?
According to folklore, the only way to become a wendigo is through cannibalism. It is said that after consuming human flesh, a person will be possessed by the spirit of the wendigo and transform into a creature. However, it should be noted that this is just a myth and there is no real way to physically turn into a wendigo. Cannibalism, of course, is highly illegal and morally reprehensible. So our advice? Stay away from human flesh, and you'll never have to worry about becoming a wendigo.
While the Wendigo is a creature of North American legends, the snowy regions have the Yeti. If you're a fan of such legends, our Yeti Plushies Stuffed Animal is a perfect addition to your collection.
Who Would Win In A Battle?
If these two cryptids were to fight, it would be a close battle. The skinwalker is said to be able to transform into any animal, which means they could take on the form of an animal with speed or strength superior to that of the wendigo. However, the wendigo has been known to kill people possessed by it, which means it likely has some level of strength and speed beyond that of a normal human. In the end, it's impossible to say definitively who would win, but we're leaning towards the skinwalker just because they're so darn creepy.
In the end, it's important to remember that wendigos, skinwalkers, and other cryptids are just mythical creatures and should not be feared in real life. It can be fun to read about them and learn about their folklore, but always approach these stories with skepticism and an open mind. Happy haunting!

I love my Mothman plushy! He’s so cute and fuzzy. The wings are the best part, so soft! The only problem is keeping them away from my pups! (And the catastrophic bad omen of having him nearby) 🤣
This Fresno Nightcrawler Stuffed Cryptid is the perfect companion for camping trips. It is cozy, charming, and adventurous. It looks like it belongs in the woods and blends in with nature. I took a photo of it on a tree and it looked amazing. It is a great gift for anyone who loves camping and cryptids. I adore it and recommend it.

I always loved cryptids growing up seeing YouTube videos and tv shows talking about them always fascinated me and then years later I stubbled to this site from Instagram and fell further in love with the merch! The plushies really have me in a chokehold I currently own the Fresno nightcrawler and plan on buying them all! Even plan on buy them as presents for family members! So damn adorable!
Love how furry and fluffy the stuffed cryptids are.
these are so well made, you can feel the quality as soon as you open the package. the eyes are beaded on very securely and despite how fluffy they look, they still have minimal shedding which is super convenient. obviously adorable, but also extremely worth the price. don’t hesitate to buy!
