The Bat Men are given a multitude of different Japanese names across several publications, including Human Bats (人間コウモリ, Bat Humans Ningen Kōmori) (コウモリ人間, and Bat People Kōmori Ningen) (コウモリ人. Additionally, the Bat Man which appeared in Kōmori Jin)Go! Godman had its name written fully in katakana, as Batto Man (バットマン). Although rarely given English names, the 2005 Japanese book Godzilla Toho Giant Monster Pictorial Book confirms their English names as "Bat Men". Merchandise of the creatures was also later released in 2008, giving them a peculiar alternate name of Blood Rock Keepers, referencing their protection of Blood Rock within the film.
All of the Bat Men are the nearly identical in appearance, all looking like giant bipedal bats. Some have large pointed ears, while others possess smaller, curved ears.
The Bat Men are creations of Malic, and are most likely normal humans that were transformed into their current forms by Malic's twisted experiments, since Malic also threatens to turn Tsuruko Okada into a similar creature.
The Bat Men were among Malic's many terrible creations, and were used to guard his fortress on Blood Rock. When Malic abducted Dr. Okada and his daughter Tsuruko, he used the Bat Men to guard them, and later made them force his captives watch as he performed the surgery to create the Griffon. When Captain McKenzie and his crew breached Malic's lab, Malic ordered the Bat Men to attack them as he escaped. Using their various glove-mounted weapons, McKenzie and his crew were able to defeat the Bat Men and rescue Okada and his daughter.
