— Captain Larry Jennings (Godzilla: King of the Monsters)

Amphibion is an aquatic monster who fought Godzilla in the 1977 Wonderland Records audio drama, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It emerged from the Bermuda Triangle and escaped from Godzilla during their first encounter. It was later killed by Godzilla in the Miami Beach area.

Design[edit | edit source]

Little is mentioned about Amphibion's appearance, aside from its possession of a fin described as 100 feet high and lobster-like claws. Larry Jennings also notes that it glows.

Origins[edit | edit source]

Amphibion was an amphibious prehistoric creature presumably mutated through radiation exposure.

History[edit | edit source]

Godzilla: King of the Monsters - Godzilla vs. Amphibion[edit | edit source]

While out fishing in the Bermuda Triangle, two men spotted a large fin in the water, which turned out to be Amphibion. Godzilla then arose out of the water and fought with Amphibion. The two men left the area in a panic and eventually reported what they had seen. Godzilla chased the amphibious creature towards the Miami Beach area.

Captain Rick Thompson and his son Tommy spotted Amphibion and Godzilla near a fishing boat. The pair took photographs of the two monsters and showed them to paleontologist Captain Larry Jennings for identification. Jennings recognized Godzilla, but could not identify Amphibion. Thompson and Jennings showed the photographs to Commander Radley, who doubted the monsters' existence. Radley then received an order to dispatch Thompson to lead nuclear fighter jets towards Miami Beach, as Godzilla and Amphibion had been sighted in the area.

As Amphibion and Godzilla arrived at the beach, they were spotted by civilians in the area. The U.S. military evacuated the beach as they prepared to fire at the monsters. The military fired its artillery at the monsters, doing little to no harm. The nuclear fighter jets arrived and fired at Godzilla and Amphibion, leaving them unfazed. The creatures continued battling, while the fighter jets fired at them a second time. Godzilla grabbed Amphibion and started twisting its neck as the fighter jets fired once more. Godzilla managed to break Amphibion's neck, killing it. The King of the Monsters roared victoriously before returning to the sea.

After Amphibion's death, Larry Jennings examined its carcass alongside Captain Wilson. The former explained to Wilson that Amphibion seemed to be a "mutant form of an amphibious prehistoric creature". When asked about the possibility of there being more creatures similar to Amphibion, Jennings replied, "Let's hope not, Captain Wilson."

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Amphibiousness[edit | edit source]

Amphibion, as its name suggests, lives an amphibious lifestyle. It is able to attack Godzilla in the ocean and come ashore while fleeing from him. It is a skilled swimmer, managing to escape Godzilla during their first battle.

Physical strength[edit | edit source]

Amphibion is able to go toe-to-toe with Godzilla, as heard in their battle at the Bermuda Triangle, though its strength is not explicitly mentioned.

Durability[edit | edit source]

Amphibion has great durability, being able to withstand Godzilla's attacks. The U.S. military's conventional weaponry also proved to have no effect on the creature.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

While it is able to hold off Godzilla on its own, Amphibion is ultimately no match for the King of the Monsters' strength. It fled the Bermuda Triangle after seemingly being overpowered by Godzilla. Amphibion was also killed after having its neck twisted and broken by Godzilla.
