The Beast From the East
The reader can encounter an unseen creature with a deep voice in a cave while at the Fun Zone. The creature is unseen due to being in the darkness, and will only allow the reader to pass if they answer three questions, the first two are answered by the reader's character, but the third is presented as a choice in the book, which is "What color is the Beast from the East?". If the reader answers incorrectly the creature is revealed to be a Beast, and the reader is apparently eaten. The correct choice appears to contradict this, however, as while the identity of the creature is not shown, it stated that it may have been a giant cat.
A Beast appears as an enemy in Goosebumps: The Game. The player must get pass the Beast to dig out the security card. To do that, the player must use the talisman or Shrunken Head, and it will overpower him. Alternately, if the player has The Haunted Mask yet does not wear it once yet, the mask will frighten the Beast upon the player removing it.
The Beasts are 8-foot-tall koala-like creatures with blue fur, bear-like heads, a long-snout, primate-like bodies, and a beaver-like tail.
The Beasts spend their time playing a deadly game of tag, in which the loser is eaten. It is also apparent that the better a Beast is at playing the game, the more abilities they are able to perform. Beasts are honor bound by the rules of their game.
