Default Why do I keep hearing random growling?

I've played through both FE and SE a few times. Great games, lots of fun (you all knew that already) but for some reason I keep hearing this strange growling noise that seems to be following me everywhere. It sounds really close as if there's a monster right around the corner waiting to attack but I can never find anything. At first I thought maybe it was something that was supposed to be guarding a secret but it happens randomly at different parts in the game. I've heard it after clearing out the court yard outside of the Tower of Babel, towards the end of Legend of the Beast, and inside the Lava Caves. It's always really close too, even if I'm out in the open, as if the monster was right behind me.

Or . . . maybe it's just Sam's stomach grumbling. Poor guy must be starving after everything he's been through (he never got his hot meal and beer).

It's a little unnerving as it makes me feel like I'm about to be ambushed at any second by something I can never see. It's not game breaking or anything. It's just weird and I have no idea what to make of it. Am I the only one hearing this? Please don't let me be the only one. I have enough voices in my head without hearing a Kleer breathe down my neck.

Hehehe, they can be quite scary. I had the same fear when I first heard... I think the beheaded's growl, in classic SS1. Btw, I know those growls you are talking about, the one in Legend of the Beast is an interesting (but kinda lazy) coincidence on your part.

The mob is dead. I made sure of that. On more than one occasion I searched every nook and cranny of the level to make sure I hadn't left anything alive but the growling persists and I am perplexed. But as I said, it's not game breaking or anything, just rather irksome.

Oh good! I'm slightly less insane than I thought!

It is the Idle sound of a Lava Golem. In Legend of the Beast, the Khnum got the same Idle sound, most likely because it was so noticeable and scary.

I remember working on my Serious Sam 3 Slender map and hearing this grunting noise every now and then because I simply used some random Serious Sam 3 enemy... it was scary to say the least.

The only growling I know of comes from idle monsters. Only thing I can think of is there's an enemy tucked away somewhere that you can't find.

If not, then yeah, you're a little crazy.

There's an Amnesia grunt somewhere just waiting to get its claws on you and rip off your testicles.

If it's testicles he's after he's going to be very disappointed.
