The correct plural form is "Mancupodes."

@antares031, don't worry, nothing wrong with your English. I'm just joking about how people argue about the spelling sometimes. I normally spell it as "Mancubi," but Bloodshedder always changed it to "Mancubuses" in my /newstuff reviews. If you compare Mancubus to the real English words that it's probably based on (Incubus and Succubus, which are types of demons), then either ending is correct, because either Incubi or Incubuses is correct. But people really have strong opinions about random stuff like that sometimes.
A lot of people have had the same argument about the word "octopus." People say "octopi" because it sounds like it should have a Latin plural ending, but other people point out that "octopus" isn't a Latin word, so it shouldn't have a Latin ending and should be "octopuses" instead. And then some other people came along and said that since "octopus" comes from a Greek word, it should have a Greek ending, which would be "octopodes."
Basically, even English speakers don't know how to speak English :)
