Admiring The Abomination

"Mr Frodo, look! It's a Oliphant, no one at home would believe this."
- Samwise Gamgee, The Two Towers

Basic Information

Admiring the Abomination is a characterization trope where a character does not respond with the expected terror and horrified reaction upon being face-to-face with an eldritch abomination, monster of the week, ghost, demon, robot, mythological creatures, etc. Instead, this character is intrigued. They've never seen anything like it! They might even geek out about a bit.

"Gosh, I think that's a Polyp, Martha! A real live Flying Polyp! I've heard about them, but I never thought I'd get to see one anywhere outside the intestine of an Elder God!"

It is, after all, a beautiful specimen of rare provenance.
