Mighty creatures that attack your fortress. When one enters your area, the game will announce its presence and its name.

The type of megabeast appears to be random, but the timing may not be. A minimum wealth created of 100,000 or a population of 80 may trigger one. Force-quitting and loading a fortress from a few days before a megabeast attack may result in a different one arriving on the same day, depending on what has survived world generation.

Included in this category are the Bronze colossus, Dragon, Hydra, Roc, and various Titans.

Titans (and forgotten beasts) are randomly generated. In addition, in legends there may appear randomly generated demons, who may look similar to Megabeasts.
