Planned for Godzilla vs. Red Moon

Erabus (エラブス,   Erabusu) is an unused kaiju from the unmade 1971 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Red Moon.

Design

Though no concept art is known to exist of the creature, the script for Godzilla vs. Red Moon describes Erabus as having glossy skin. When hibernating, she is mistaken for tree with her tail (or perhaps multiple tails) resembling tree roots. [1] Artwork by artist "Hurricane" Ryu Hariken depicts Erabus as a large-eyed, maned amphibious draconic creature with grasping forelimbs, a noticeably long neck, multiple whip-like tails, and a finned back covered in scales.

History

Godzilla vs. Red Moon

Erabus, long in hibernation, was the home of various long lived pit vipers said to have extended their life by absorbing the "red sap" of the roots of a massive tree. [1] The tree is in fact a hibernating Erabus.

Angered by an entrepreneur trying to exploit her blood, Erabus emerged from hibernation on Habu Island of Okinawa shortly after Red Moon arrived from the moon. The JSDF thought they could lure the two kaiju together so they could defeat each other, but they turned out to be the same species and of opposite genders. Deciding the monsters weren't a threat any longer, the JSDF let them be. They soon had a son dubbed Halfun, who was killed later on by the same men who tried to use his mother's blood. Halfun's parents went berserk, destroying cities, but Godzilla arrived and defeated them after a lengthy battle. A child pleaded that he stop, as the couple were only going on a rampage out of grief, and Godzilla spared the pair. He threw Erabus into the sea as Red Moon retreated back into space.[2]

Abilities

Toxin storage

Erabus has the ability to inhale airborne chemical weapons to store in her body and later exhale against enemies.[1]

Burrowing

Erabus is a rapid burrower, able to quickly vanish without a trace after awakening.[1]

Medicinal Blood

The blood of Erabus was discovered to by entrepreneur Oanashisuni to have medicinal properties and act as a miracle cure.[2]

Are we sure Erabus and Redmoon are "aliens"? Red Moon coming from the moon doesn't necessarily mean they are from deep space given so many Japanese legends of life on the moon and travel between the moon and Earth.

If it isn't from Earth, it is fair to call it an alien in my book.
