  1. Nice list, I especially like number 2.
    My first thought were slimes but it could also be constructs as projectile weapons.
    Or someone curling up in a ball.

  2. Excellent idea fodder! Perfect for sci-aliens too ;)

  3. You really should compile these things into some sort of book.

  4. I've adapted a version of this table for my campaign (I hope you don't mind if I share):
    1. Body parts detach (entirely or partially) to catch prey (stomach folds out and around, jaw uncoils to lash, arms/eyes fly around)
    2. Self-destructs, sowing spores, myriad babies eat their way out, infection erupts
    3. Transforms into another monster, even a character double
    4. Breathes/vomit/excretes clouds/lines/cones of acid, dispel magic, reverse gravity, etc.
    5. Uses telepathic power in attempt to scare/bore/depress/make foes laugh to death
    6. Long-distance, unexpected body part (tentacle, tongue, tractor beam, extra arm/head)
    7. Cakes enemies with powder/mucus/substance that has a gradual other effect
    8. Extrudes continuous brood of attack-babies
    9. Releases giant, ambulatory phagocytes that retrieve nourishment for the main body
    10. Aura: electricity/heat/psychic turbulence
    11. It's a decoy; the real beast is invisible and right behind you!
    12. Summons legal representatives to enforce laws that protect it
