Clover's Parasites are parasitic kaiju created by Paramount Pictures that appeared in the 2008 film, Cloverfield.

Design

The Parasite is comprised of a crustacean-like carapace, several pairs of claws, and arms. A deep blue-purple muscular membrane stretches between the top and lower jaws. The Parasite's jaw is unique in that the top half of the head is the mandible, moving up from the lower jaw to open, as opposed to the reverse with almost all terrestrial animals. The top and lower jaws end in serrated edges and also have four pairs of eyes each.

Personality

The Parasites attack in coordinated packs, and prefer enclosed spaces to surprise and trap their prey.

History

Cloverfield

While the army was battling Clover, several smaller parasitic creatures fell of its body and attacked soldiers and civilians in the area. A group of survivors were attacked by the parasites in Spring Street Station. One of them was bitten by a parasite, which would later lead to her death.

Comics

Cloverfield/KISHIN

The parasites terrorize citizens during Clover's rampage. Following Kishin Aiba's emotional breakdown, he becomes able to control both them and Clover through the "Remnant of God" pod inside of his body, and almost uses them to kill his bullies until classmate Aiko Sasahara convinces him to stop. After that, he is no longer able to influence the parasites. As a result, they try to eat him and his fellow students.

Abilities

Movement

The parasites have the ability to climb on walls and ceilings, and they are able to jump great distances.

Prey Detection

The parasites can detect prey over long distances, via an unknown method.

Bite

When a human is bitten, the parasites saliva causes the victim to feel disoriented, bleed from the eyes and finally cause the victim to inflate, and have their stomach explode. Pouring water on the wound speeds up the violent explosion, as shown by Marlena, who exploded 20 minutes after the bite. Most victims died within 20-40 minutes.
