The Godzilla vs. Kong audio description calls Doug a Foetodon, a species from the 2005 King Kong remake by Universal Pictures, which has no affiliation with the Monsterverse. However, the film's novelization simply identifies him and his kin as lizard-like monsters, while Godzilla vs. Kong: One Will Fall - The Art of the Ultimate Battle Royale uses Scaly Quadrupeds. "Doug" started as a popular nickname among fans, coined by the podcast It Came From A Monster Movie!, but was then embraced by director Adam Wingard, the Legendary Pictures Twitter and Instagram accounts, an official T-shirt, and the metaverse platform Virtua. The T-shirt calls him Titanus Doug while Virtua uses Titanous Doug. However, it is unclear whether Monarch will assign him this classification in-universe.
Doug's species is rotund in physique with large, green-colored eyes and short legs. Their osteoderms are also more jagged in shape, and somewhat resemble those found on the Hellhawks, another species inhabiting the Hollow Earth. The Virtua NFT of the creature shows that it has two rows of spikes running down its tail, ending in a heavily spiked tip resembling the thagomizer of a Stegosaurus. They have thick, crocodile-like skin, which acts as armor against the many other threats in the Hollow Earth.
Godzilla vs. Kong: One Will Fall - The Art of the Ultimate Battle Royale notes that director Adam Wingard asked that Doug's species resemble Godzilla, although the book does not confirm an evolutionary link.

Doug easily caught a Rock Critter in his jaws and crushed it. His species uses their tails as clubs to kill smaller creatures that irritate them.

Doug behaves the same as he does in the film, although he is joined by other members of his species in attacking the Rock Critters.
