[[Image:Mon-thousand-pounder-concept1.jpg|left|thumb|220px|Concept art of the Thousand Pounder(s).]]Thousand Pounder is a special boss monster, seen in the [[WWI 2008]] [[gameplay movie]] and a few related screenshots. It's not known if he's one particular individual out of a whole class of big, fat, dual-wielding, tattooed [[Demon]]s, or if he's a special, one-of-a-kind demon but the video of the demon hunter suggests he belongs to a class of "fatty" fiends. He's not an [[Act Boss]] or a major [[Quest boss]] though, that much was made clear in the panels at the WWI event.
Demon is summoned (as is described below), and sets to attack the player. Once he's ready to rumble, Thousand Pounder moves slowly, but with tremendous power, and deals heavy damage with his two large maces. When he smacks his two maces together, you don't want to be standing in the impact zone. In the gameplay movie, a [[Barbarian]] avoids damage by jumping around the beast with [[Leap Attack]] and uses [[Furious Charge]] to smash through the fatty monster. Other classes will likely be able to have some sort of similar mobility skills, like the [[Wizard]] skill [[Teleport]].
Thousand Pounder doesn't have any additional minions or other monsters to help him out, so if the player uses an avoidance tactic and tries to damage him with ranged attacks, or forces him to use his strong but slow attacks, dodges them, and counter attacks before the Pounder retaliates, he can be taken down easily. Just remember not to get hit by the maces, and you 'll be fine.

::'''Julian: '''Oh yeah, in fact I think there’s been a lot of off-shoot ideas. Like every other monster in the game, where applicable, we ended building a skeletal structure into him, and even a muscular set and things like that, that you see. And those things are functional, so I wouldn’t be surprised if you see skeletal and muscular thousand pounders running around, maybe half-summoned, and that sort of thing. There’s a lot of leeway with it.
When he is defeated his death animation is basically the summoning animation in reverse; starting with a huge gout of blood, then his skin sloughs off, followed by his muscles, before his bones clatter to the ground.
