The strange creature is a special being that is created by the player during the max capeemote. The creature is examinable from the beginning of the emote, even when it is just a rock. Due to the cape's requirements, the creature can only be created by someone who has level 99 in all 27 skills as the player uses every skill in order to complete it.
After the player gives life to the creature, it looks at its left hand and makes a fist realising the power it has been given. At the same time the player prepares to duel with the creature. The result of the fight is that the creature is destroyed just as quickly as it was created. These are the skills that the player uses against it in the fight.
In some tales of golems, (for example, some versions of those of the golems of Chełm and Prague, as well as in Polish tales and version of Brothers Grimm), a golem is inscribed with Hebrew words, such as the word emet (אמת, "truth" in the Hebrew language) written on its forehead. The golem could then be deactivated by removing the aleph (א) in emet, thus changing the inscription from 'truth' to 'death' (met מת, meaning "dead").
