Cycor (싸이커,   Ssaikeo) is a reptilian alien monster who appears in the 1999 film Reptilian.

Name

The monster's Korean name is Ssaikeo (싸이커), which was translated to Cyker in the marketing for Reptilian's 2001 re-release.[1] In the film, which was shot entirely in English, its name is instead pronounced with an 'o' vowel, and is rendered "Cycor" in the closed captions on home video and streaming. A bonus feature on the American DVD release offers the spelling Cykor. For the film's Japanese release, Cycor's name was changed to Sasorigues (サソリゲス,   Sasorigesu), likely derived from the Japanese word for "scorpion": sasori ( (さそり) or サソリ). Before its Japanese name was decided, Cycor was referred to as a Mysterious Monster (謎の怪獣,   Nazo no Kaijū).[2]

Design

Cycor is a bizarre alien creature with reptilian and crustacean features mostly colored in a deep purple or black. He is sustained by four legs, giving him a centaur-like structure. His arms both end in long pincers while his head looks crocodilian. His back is covered with a spiked shell from which two cannon-like structures come out from his shoulders. He posseses a long tail that ends in a pincer structure similar to a centipede's.

History

Reptilian

The Galaxions launched Cycor from their ship. Cycor crashed into the Earth like a meteor, causing a large explosion and knocking Yonggary off his feet. Yonggary noticed something approaching him from underground, just before it suddenly stopped and Cycor rose from the ground. Cycor attacked Yonggary, knocking him to the ground. A soldier distracted Cycor, which gave Yonggary enough time to get up. Cycor attempted to crush the soldier with its arm, but Yonggary blew it up with a fireball. Tentacles grew from Cycor's wound and wrapped around Yonggary, then discharged an electrical surge, which made Yonggary fall down. Cycor shot a fireball at Yonggary, but the monster dodged it then fired back and blew up Cycor's head. More tentacles grew from the wound and launched toward Yonggary, but Yonggary dodged the attack and bit them off. Yonggary then shot a fireball into the wound where Cycor's head once was, making him explode into pieces.

Abilities

Snapping claws

Cycor's two uppermost arms are equipped with powerful snapping claws.

Fire beam

Cycor can breathe concentrated beams of fire out of its mouth.

Electric bolts

Cycor can discharge bolts of electricity from its forked tail.

Tendrils and limb loss

If any of Cycor's limbs are removed, electrically-charged tendrils will coil out of the wound to continue fighting.

Reanimation

Even if Cycor's head is cut off, its body still possesses enough energy to continue on its fight. When Cycor's head was chopped off, long tendrils came out of its head and wrapped themselves around Yonggary.
