In the hit Broadway musical “Wicked,” the central question surrounding the misunderstood protagonist is, “Are people born wicked, or do they have wickedness thrust upon them?” Can the same question be applied to some of the most famous monsters in pop culture? Perhaps monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein and Godzilla were simply misunderstood.

The trending hashtag #TheMonstersSideOfTheStory challenged Twitter users to give a voice to famous monsters and the results will have you rooting for every scary, mythological and downright goofy monster in pop culture history. The hashtag game, hosted by Tag Assassin, generated hundreds of tweets that were told from the monster’s perspective.

From the catacomb-dwelling Phantom of the Opera and the green-faced Wicked Witch of the West to the cookie-loving Cookie Monster, cartoon Sully and infamous Loch Ness Monster, the tweets truly prove that there are two sides to every story.
