It's from Rift.

So no, I can't tell you.

I'd have to go with the Gnome shredders in WoW. I chuckle every time the gnome flies screaming out of the top.

@cowboyhugbees And the boars in LOTRO, too. It is sad but the little kick and spin before they finally expire is sometimes amusing.

The real question should be... What is your favorite MOB spawning animation? Most developers are too slack to actually create them.

Back in the early days of Fallen Earth the ragdoll physics would sometimes get all wonky and corpses would go rocketing straight up into the atmosphere. When they finally fell back to earth almost a minute later they would bounce around like they were made of rubber. It was pretty hilarious.

@Darow I'd have to agree with this one. They're still kinda bugged (or maybe it's a feature!) and flop around, but not as bad as before.

The tree creatures in WoW, when they suddenly look down and see that they've been chopped in half and act surprised about it before it slides apart.

I love the male blood elf death animation in WoW. When they fall and clutch their hand into the air trying not to die. FUN!

@JohnD212 Seconding this one. It always makes me laugh because of something I saw in someone's forum signature ages ago.

"You blood elves die like you are reaching out for your ice cream cone.... Oh almost there, wait for me ice cream, oh nooooooo! /dead"

It is mandatory for all male elves in Warcraft to attend the Academy of Dramatic Death Throes.

Orthons in DDO. When you kill them their weapons drop, they look at the sky to scream and then burst into a pile of maggots and slowly drain away. It's just darn cool.

Not necessarily an MMO, but the "Death Knights"(?) in Hell in Diablo 1. Just awsome how they seemed to be sucked down into the depths of.... Deeper Hell? They also typically came in massive waves and it was just awsome watching all of them be disposed in small clumps by my Warrior or the massive waves of deaths at the hands of my Sorcerer.

Right now, my fave mob death animation is for the Ghouls in CoH. The way they spasm and seize up is pure awesome.

@bjooks

I second this. My only problem with all of the neat little touches like that in GR is that whenever I play in Praetoria, I lament that my own character can't have that level of interesting detail. All the mobs are cooler than I am. :(

I love the dancing chopped limbs in requiem.
