This is the same question as My prefix is weird, My suffix is a friend, but with a couple of ever-so-slight modifications (and obviously a different answer):

  • My prefix is Weird.
  • My suffix is a Friend.
  • My infix is a creature to be feared.
  • My whole has a massive extend*.

*Clarification (not needed, but may clear something up):

The verb 'extend' is being used as a noun here in order to fit the rhyme scheme. There isn't much more to it than that.

Albatross

The subtle difference is:

Capitalization, for proper nouns (names)

Prefix Weird

Weird Al the parody singer

Suffix Friend

Ross from the TV show Friends

Infix creature

bat. Aaaahhhhhh

Final clue and answer

Albatross is a giant bird, and metaphor for large anxiety or hardship that can feel massive and extend into other areas of ones life

  • $\begingroup$ Nice !! More importantly albatrosses have massive wingspans (the largest of any bird) :) $\endgroup$ – Shubham Goenka Sep 2 '20 at 4:49
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks! The prefix hit me, then I started going through the suffix characters until the word hit me. $\endgroup$ – Damila Sep 2 '20 at 4:53

I don't think this is quite right, but I'll post it anyway:

megalomaniacally

My prefix is Weird.

megalo - abnormally large or great

My suffix is a Friend.

ally - an ally could be considered someone friendly to you

My infix is a creature to be feared.

maniac - I don't know if it would be considered a creature, but they are often feared

My whole has a massive extend*.

this word is very long - 16 letters!
