The Energy Beast (エナジー・ビースト,   Enajī Bīsuto) is a meteor kaiju created by Hanna-Barbera that appeared in the 1978 Godzilla episode, "The Energy Beast."

History

The Energy Beast came to Earth in a UFO that looked like a meteor. After landing, he took the shape of a tree. When a group of engineers from a nearby dam checked the area, they saw the gigantic foot prints leading to the tree. Thinking nothing of them, they returned to the dam. The Calico and crew soon came to the site, and while looking at the dam from the outside, they spotted the Energy Beast on top of it. It soon started to absorb electricity, and the Calico crew called on Godzilla, who was quickly defeated by the Energy Beast's electric ball.

The Energy Beast managed to escape as Godzilla retreated to fix the dam that was damaged. The Energy Beast soon turned into a replica of Godzilla and started to attack power plants to absorb electricity. When Godzilla caught up to the Energy Beast, the two battled, and Godzilla was defeated once again and covered by an avalanche of boulders.

Godzilla got out of the boulders shortly after the copy left, and Godzilla wanted revenge. The copy and Godzilla dueled until the Energy Beast's power ran out. He returned to his normal size and tried to escape to his ship. Godzilla picked the ship up and hurled it into space, sending the Energy Beast back to where it came from.
