Looks like a lindworm or a wingless wyvern to me. Very low-res image, but I think the furry look might depict spiky scales, too. Medieval dragons are often depicted with mammalian features (ears, for example) so fur might be also possible. I've never heard nor can find any source for fur-coated two-legged serpent, and I doubt a video game would use very obscure beasts for this.
What video game, by the way?
Thanks! I already spent some time converting a wyvern image into a lindworm, so I'm just going to go with that. This is from the game Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. Yeah, they're all very low-res, which is why I wanted to recreate them with more detail. I'll post a picture when I'm finished with the crest :)
I've been recreating some coat of arms from the countries of my favorite video game. This one is giving me a lot of trouble. I can't quite figure out what the supports are supposed to be. At first I thought it might be a Sea-wolf or sea-dog, but the paws look like bird feet and the tongue looked draconic to me. I finally thought I had discovered it was the Lindwerm, but then I noticed that the coat looked more like fur than dragon scales. Does anyone recognize this mythical creature?
Looks like a basilisk from some games I've played....
Seems to be a seahorse and there seems to be precedent for that in heraldry (both the modern animal and a literal "sea horse" that's half horse, half fish)
They are indeed found in heraldry, but I don't think that's the case here. Sea-horses are usually depicted with hooves or webber feet (see https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Heraldic_seahorses), not claws like here. Furthermore, the face of the creature is rather dragon-like or serpent-like with the fangs and two-tipped tongue, and not horse-like. Natural seahorses are also quite different-looking.
