What does one say when attacked by a stalactite monster or giant totem bear? Well, it turns out there's lots of options. "EEEAAAHHH!" is a popular one, but "AAARRRGHHH!" is pretty good too. Let's look at some screams and exclamations from comics from yesteryear...
What does one say when a monster grabs you by the throat? "YAAAAGH!", of course.
But this next fella elects to use the "EEE-AH-H-H-H-H!", which as we'll see, may be the most frequently used exclamation of all.
Of course, when grabbed by a giant tentacle, the only appropriate thing to say is "AAAGGHHH!"
When face to face with a giant ant, just yell "EEEEYAAAARRRRRRGH!"
Yep, Henry has the response down pat. Giant ant appears, and Henry is back with the "EEEYAAAARRGH!", but with a few less "R"s.
Women are more apt to use the "EEEEEEEEEE" when confronted with ghosts, monsters and the like, than the men, who generally go for something that sounds like "ARG".
This chick has a more appropriate use for the "EEEYAAAAAA!" She drops the "H" and adds a few more "A"s to mix things up.
All together now: "EEEYYYAAAHHH!!"
"YARRK!!" Now that's a new one. Engineers just always gotta be different.
Like I said - the chicks always go screams with lots of "EEEE"s
And, like I said, the men generally shy away from the "E"-centric screams, and generally go with the "ARG" and its variants.
Back to the "EEEYYAAAAA!"
When having a run-in with animated heaps of garbage, the natural thing to say is "YIII!"
Just add a few extra "I"s if it's an animated bull statue
"AHHHHH-URK!". Nice one.
