Armillaria (ミュータント・キノコ,   Myūtanto Kinoko, lit. Mutant Mushroom) is a mutant fungus monster created by TriStar Pictures that appears in the sixteenth episode of season two of Godzilla: The Series, entitled "Underground Movement."

Design[edit | edit source]

Armillaria appears to be a grey and pale blue round structure of varied fungi sprouting on its body. Prominent structures include mushrooms and pale green tentacle appendages with yellow stripes near the end.

History[edit | edit source]

Godzilla: The Series[edit | edit source]

"Underground Movement"[edit | edit source]

Armillaria was a giant, mutant fungus which had miles of tentacles. It attacked and destroyed farmland in Michigan. Several members of H.E.A.T. were in Miami at the time, dealing with a lawsuit brought against them by Miami Beach (because of damages caused by Godzilla while battling a giant bat). When Randy and Craven, who were staying in New York, got word of the fungus' attacks in Michigan, the two set out to handle the problem alone. However, Armillaria attacked them and left them stranded without any food, supplies or communication. Fortunately, H.E.A.T. managed to locate them. The military dug up Armillaria and Godzilla threw it into a deserted area of sand dunes. Without any food sources, Armillaria finally died. H.E.A.T. later learned that the lawsuit against them had been thrown out.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Tentacles[edit | edit source]

Armillaria has tentacles that can stretch for miles. Armillaria can use these tentacles to drain amino acids from anything they touch. If a tentacle is cut off, it will grow back.

Weaknesses[edit | edit source]

After Godzilla threw Armillaria into a deserted area of sand dunes without any food sources with its central nervous system crippled due to the lasers, Armillaria was incinerated by Godzilla when it tried to make a run for it.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Armillaria is similar to the cancelled kaiju Deathla, who has a mushroom form.
  • Armillaria's tentacles may be based on the Graboids from Tremors when rising from the ground and grabbing objects.
  • Armillaria shares some similarities with the Toho kaiju Matango, being a mutant mushroom.
