The Manticore was the first disguise of Hot Dog Water. Designed after the mythical beast of the same name and springing forth from a phony haunted temple, it sought to drive guests away from the Fleach's family theme-park, Creepy Spooky Terror Land.
It had a large body in the shape of a lion, wings like a dragon, a tail like a scorpion, and a distorted human face.
It acted on bestial instincts, attacking everyone it sighted in the park.
Powers and abilities
- Flight: The manticore costume was built around a super-helium balloon to allow flight.
- Super strength
Its tail can be used for piercing attacks also, as can its massive front claws.

She used her computer expertise to create an entire website just to sell Mayor Fred Jones, Sr. the fake "ancient temple" in which the Manticore supposedly lived. She wanted to shut the park down so she could make more super-helium and get rich from its sale.
HDW rebuilt the Manticore suit (or more likely repurposed elements of its technology) into the costume of the monster, Dark Lilith. She then used this new flying suit to attempt to claim a wedge of the Planispheric Disk at Mount Diabla, terrorizing the local folks and drawing out Mystery Incorporated.
Manticore: You are doomed, flea-covered one! Doomed!
- The Manticore is one of the hardest bosses on Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated Crystal Cove Online due to its ability to fly. It was also one of the real monsters in the bonus mystery in Gatorsburg.
