Hornoads are creatures that live on the planet SR388, where they are at the near-bottom of the food chain. Their name comes from a portmanteau of the words horn and toad. Hornoads had long existed on SR388 until a steady decline in the planet's entire wildlife population seemingly began with the appearance of the X Parasites, which slowly turned the planet into a graveyard of skeletons.
