Lol I assure you that you don't have to have any worries of a Cyclops running you down on the side walks. Maybe your Internet had a short interference and that happens when you lose connection. You have no worries of any monster grabbing you into battle from the sidewalk. Just try not to walk across clearings in streets when you see that. It can get you in a heap of trouble. Have a blessed day.

There are 2 possibilities here. Either:
a. you are being funny and talking about another player that has a cyclops transformation, or
b. you are talking about an actual cyclops street monster that appeared to walk out of the street and probably through walls. This is an effect that happens when you lose the connection with the server. The way I think of it is that the KI servers control the whole game and send the program on your computer the next few steps/instructions like cyclops walks east. If the server doesn't update your computer program, the program just keeps doing that last known instruction.
Similar but opposite is if you run in a direction and then switch windows, your computer said run east but never updates any changes so others see you floating into space/through walls/etc...
The system is complicated and I'm sure I have a very naive view of how that all works, but just know that KI has put together an amazing system and has done an awesome job of keeping it running smoothly.
So when you see these little glitches don't say "aw KI can't you fix that", but rather "wow KI you are so awesome that this little glitch didn't crash the server or my computer or kick me off the game right away, etc..."
Think positive :)

Maybe it was a transformation. You can get these at the crown shop.

I have also seen this more than once.

1). It WAS NOT a transformation

2). My connection was just fine and I was not lagging.

In the past I have seen this in other areas but each time it was from lag or loss of connection. The occurrences in cyclops lane are different and not caused by these problems.

As I4C said, It could be either an disconnection due to a disturbance between your computer and your internet, or it could be a player that had purchased a disguise from the crowns shop.

Actually i noticed sometimes if you lag, some characters might walk into walls XD or even walk right through when your battling some(one)(thing). This i actually believe is from internet...Because when this happens, it usually logs me out and and says i lost connection to the game. But sometimes i see this in mooshu and krokotopia, and i have perfectly good internet...

strange ISNT it?

Actually that has happened to me on multiple occasions. Idk if it is just a bug or I am lagging but I do have pretty good connection though.

I don't mean to but this happens to me sometimes and I know why it happens. It is because you have lost your internet connection and for some reason the monsters stop walking on their programed route and continue walking straight in the direction they were facing when the connection was lost. They can walk right off the map and through buildings and just keep going. If you want to try it out just cut your internet while the game is running and watch.

This actually happens to me quite a lot; I know it is because I lose connection momentarily. People with a "good" connection will probably still encounter this problem occasionally or once in a while, especially if they've got others doing things that demand a lot of internet use such as streaming videos, playing games, etc.

That has happened to me, but not a monster! It was a person, you know, like one that gives you quests. I went up to one and it just zoomed away, very fast with the question mark over it's head. It was scary!
My computer's internet connection was fine and the game wasn't freezing or glitching, so what was happening was left unknown.

I have a funny story!

A couple months ago I was in Cyclopes Lane, taking a leisurely stroll, watching the newer wizards have fun. I was loving watching and decided to join them. Then a Cyclopes was actually
Walking On The Sidewalk!!!!!! I was challenged and I won! I'm serious though. Cyclopes Lane has done that several times!

I was actually walking in Cyclops Lane when a cyclops walked straight through a building.
It was rather strange now that It think about it. He came out the other side, which made me freak out.

I saw a Cyclops walk off the street, across a sidewalk and walk into the side of a building. then it turned around and went back into the street. i saw it twice today. it isn't internet connection (i have a very stable broadband) but my guess is, it is a glitch in the "path" that the characters walk on. just like you see the black geometric shapes that pop up now and then (they use to do it a lot near Barnaby). i'm guessing there is a hole in the path and they wander of course now and then.
