The Maricoxi is a general term for several large ape-like creatures that have allegedly been seen in many parts of the jungle regions of South America. These may be cryptids or merely an undiscovered tribe. Percy Fawcett claimed an encounter with a group in 1914. They allegedly were extremely hairy, lived in villages and used bows and arrows. They spoke in grunts and lived to the northeast of a tribe called the Maxubi
Battle vs Neanderthal (By KevlarNinja)Edit
Out in an Ice Age tundra, a lone Neanderthal is hunting a snowshoe hare a few miles outside of his tribe. He's about to kill it, but suddenly, something else does. The Neanderthal goes up to the hare and pulls out what killed it: an arrow. As he tries to figure out what it is, he hears something shouting. He looks up and sees who shot the arrow, a Marioxi. The Marioxi is doing a war dance (drawing and retracting his bow well walking forwards and backwards). Than the apeman fires an arrow for real and starts running towards the Neanderthal. Thinking quickly, the Neanderthal picks up a rock and the arrow hits it, snapping the arrow in half. As the Marioxi comes closer, the Neanderthal throws the rock, hitting Marioxi in the chest and knocking him over. The Neanderthal tries to stab the Marioxi with his spear, but the Marioxi dodges and gets back up. The Marioxi throws an Axe, but it hits a single dead tree instead. As they get into close range, the neanderthal pulls out a hand axe and the marioxi, a stone knife. They scrape back and forth until the marioxi cuts the neanderthal on the hand. The neanderthal runs away, and the marioxi gives chase. The neanderthal picks up a new rock. The marioxi caches up with him and tries to stab him with his stake. The neanderthal dodges it and hits the marioxi in the head with the rock, knocking him out.
The neanderthal goes behind the cover of a big rock. He takes a branch off the tree and starts wacking it with a piece of flint. The marioxi wakes up and hears the flint hitting the stick. He walks towards the rock, shouting. Just as he's about to stab the neanderthal, he gets a spark and uses the torch to light the marioxi's hair on fire. As the apeman dies, the neanderthal roars in victory and starts to drag the marioxi's and the hare's bodies back home.
