Okay, so first of let me say that I'm looking for royalty free resources that can be used even in a commercial game. Hence I don't expect anyone to make me anything from scratch.
In fact, that's not why I'm here. I'm just looking for help looking around for what's already available (free stuff made by the community for the community, basically). Maybe you've seen something somewhere that could be what I'm looking for?

What I'm looking for: Two battlers (with sprites!) that I can use as bosses for two separate element themed dungeons (fire & water). As long as it makes sense I'm pretty flexible though so for the water dungeon it could be an ice monster and for the fire dungeon a lava monster or even a (fire type) dragon or something else would be fine.

As long as they look cool and fit the theme, I'm not to picky with what particular monsters I'll end up getting. But it's worth pointing out that I'm making a fantasy game. I'm willing to stretch that concept a little (a fire golem with metal parts might be ok), but a futuristic robot might not fit that well into the game.

Engine & Artstyle: I'm using RPGmaker MV and I'm looking for battlers (and sprites) that fits well with the RTP art style and format. While it doesn't have to look exactly like the RTP (MV's battlers have a pretty unique saturated and cartony look), I'm looking for something that blends well with it and doesn't clash.

[EDIT; Might as well point out that I'm using the "Garuda" (bird) boss battler as well as the "Snake" battler that are included in MV's RTP as bosses for two other elemental dungeons. Knowing that might make it easier to pinpoint the desired artstyle I'm looking for.]

[EDIT2; I just realized that it might be kind of important to point out that I'm planning on using a classic front-view battle system. I don't want to confuse anyone and waste their time so let it be known that I'm looking for "classic" battlers - not SV-battlers.]

I know time isn't free for anyone so I deeply appreciate any attempt at helping me out.
Thank you very much even for reading this far! :D

@Matseb2611 Thanks for taking your time. :kaojoy: I'm actually not looking for animated battlers, just normal static (front view) battlers. In time, I'll probably utilize Yanfly's plugins to give all the battlers that "over-used" breathing effect. That'll be good enough.

However, if possible I would prefer if the sprites were animated and had walking/movement animation (since all my other sprites do). But, a good static battler with a static (south facing) map sprite that doesn't clash with MV's RTP would be good enough!

Avy has a variety of battlers with sprites (like elemental fairies for example)

Shades of Battler has many monsters, you can possibly like. (look at the website too)
The last pages have nice battler positions, so maybe you can use one as a static map sprite?

@Avery also made a link list of fantastic beasts for mv

If I find something more specific I'll let you know.

@starlight dream Thank you. Those elemental fairies are really cool, although I'm already using those for non-boss encounters... so unfortunately I can't use them for the the bosses too. But style-wise they are spot on! :)

I'll take my time looking though the other links you've provided as well. Looks like it's going to take a while. Better prepare some tea or something!

Good luck that's a lot to browse through! :D

A couple more. No matching sprites for these unfortunately. But it's possible to request a front, static sprite perhaps?

Amy's battlers - These are edits from the rtp. She has combined parts of different battlers together.
There is a Fire Elemental among them:

And Gabrelik's characters & battlers have fire monsters too (but you need to contact him if it's for commercial use.)

For Water, how about this pretty octopus lady? She comes with a bust (just cut it out for the face), a sprite for MV and a battler!

There are even fitting minions there, but only with vx/ace sprites (but, as they are monsters they might still fit?)

Other minions, just in case:

@starlight dream I really like Amy's RTP edits and will consider using some. And maybe even make a few of myself! :) Thank you!

@Avery Wow! Seriously, I have to send you some digital love for putting together that list for me~! :kaoluv:
That Ocopus Lady in the first link (and her minions!) are perfect, 10/10! But I do seem to have trouble finding the creators terms of use, and how to credit them. Would you happen to know where it is? I have to be particularly careful about it since I might release the game with the intent of trying to at least make back what I'm going to spend on the soundtrack. And for commercial games especially it's best to be sure. I don't wanna rip someones stuff without their permission after all. :kaocry:

Also, this link blew me away: http://cyanyurikago.web.fc2.com/material.html ...so many totally CRAZY-cool battlers. Although again, I'm not sure about the terms of use and whom to credit? Well, maybe they are a little bit too nightmarish for my current happy fantasy-comedy game anyhow... but they're so cool I'd be tempted to use them in the future if I knew I was allowed to.

Lastly, the phoenix! I really like the sprite, but... ToS? And there was some interesting monsters in this link as well: https://tm.lucky-duet.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3351 but while most of it seems to be MV-RTP edits, some of it is quite extensively edited and Rakuta doesn't seem to mention their ToS either.

Basically, I love the material you've presented and I'm so tempted to use some of it, but I become somewhat scared whenever I can't find a clear-cut Terms of Use explaining what I'm allowed to do and who to give credit. So if I just happened to miss them (I'm kanji-blind and it's very possible I've overlooked something obvious) please point me in the right direction!:kaoswt:

And again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! :kaojoy:

@slimmmeiske2 Woho! Thank you for doing all the work! This community is great. :kaojoy: It's quite a list of sites you have there so I'll check it out in the morning...

uuh... Oh! It IS morning. Um, what happened to my evening? Oh well, I'll check it out when I wake up is what I meant to say. Too much RPGmaker, too little sleep. Thank you very much again and good night! :kaoslp:

I finally got the ships and water to flow like I wanted to~ the canals are a success. Now to loop the animation for the kites. So many kites.

Hello Newcomer...
I haven't make anything new yet, but I'm back addicted to writing some MZ plugins. Man, I wish I have more free time like I did 5 years ago.
Holy cow... work is demanding and I'm back in college. I'm kind of scared of my dad right now after the incident, but at least I don't live with him all the time. Anyway, working on Fandom Scouts and my FNAF character set. The FNAF sprites are actually going to be used in the game... unfortunately the enemy sprites are FNAF World traces, so no sharing those.
