- "Hey, check this thing out..."
- — Marcus Fenix seeing a Mangler in the Seran Ocean.
Manglers, were an aquatic species of the Hollows. They lived in the underground lakes surrounding Nexus and were used by the Locust Horde. Manglers swim in large shoals, and are very aggressive. Before the Sinking of Jacinto, Manglers were only present in the Hollows. However the sinking released large numbers of the creatures into the Seran Oceans along with the Leviathan. Like most Hollow creatures, the Locust Horde enslaved them for use in the war machine, and they were used to power their gunboats.
Operation: Hollow StormEdit
Manglers were first encountered by Marcus Fenix and Dominic Santiago in the lakes under Mount Kadar, being used to power their Gunboats. Sgt. Fenix repelled several Gunboats and blew up one of them, killing the Manglers that powered it. Another Gunboat powered by Manglers rammmed through the port and ripped it in two, unintentionally creating a raft so that Marcus and Dom can pass through the lake. The gunboat chased the raft until all of its crew was killed, then another gunboat; full of Cyclops, appeared and attacked the raft, this one was also dealt with and the raft continued towards a path Imulsion fumes on which the Manglers didn't followed them. After they passed through the Imulsion a Gunboat with a Flame Boomer on it attacked the team, the Boomer burned their raft and it began to sunk, the gears killed the Boomer and boarded the gunboat just before the raft was destroyed, the Manglers continued to power the gunboat with Delta-One on it depite the fact that they weren't Locust, more gunboats attacked the hijacked gunboat until it went near the Leviathan's territory. The hijacked gunboat fell through a waterfall and the Manglers powering it were stunned, soon the Leviathan approached the boat and ate both Manglers, leaving Delta stationary as the monster attacked their boat. The Leviathan was eventually killed by the gears.
