The Giant Bat (巨大コウモリ,   Kyodai Kōmori?) is a giant chiropteran kaiju created by TriStar Pictures that first appeared in the Godzilla: The Series episode Monster Wars: Part 1.

Design

The Giant Bat has a blue body with enormous wings and no upper arms. It has long pointed ears and thin, long, hair on its head. Its elongated, pink nostrils stand erect on its light blue snout, and its yellow eyes are ringed in red flesh. Its lower back sports a visible bone structure resembling vertebrae.

Origins

The Giant Bat is a mutation that was likely caused by nuclear testing in Africa by the French government, as suggested in New Family: Part 2, where this is the suggested origin for most of the series' monsters.

History

Godzilla: The Series

Monster Wars: Part 1

The Giant Bat was a mutation living in Nigeria where it terrorized villages for food. After sending livestock into a stampede with his roar in Kano, the Giant Bat flew to Lagos where it did the same, and flew away with oxen from carts in a street market. The H.E.A.T. was then called to eliminate the threat, but they had recently disbanded due to increased hostilities created by Tachyon interference, so only Dr. Niko Tatopoulos and Godzilla came to Lagos. Tatopoulos and the Nigerian military searched mangrove swamps for the Giant Bat, where it swooped down at them. Godzilla then attacked the Bat and chased it into the city. Godzilla tackled it underwater, but the Bat quickly escaped, albeit with water in its ears interfering with its echolocation. It trapped Godzilla's head in a bridge and bit his snout before being called away by the Tachyons.

Monster Wars: Part 2

Upon realizing that it was being followed, the Giant Bat attacked the H.E.A.T. Seeker, and they tried to evade it, before a Cryptocledius emerged from the water and aided it in its attack. The battle raged on, and H.E.A.T. was able to emit a reverse frequency of the Bat's echolocation frequency in order to blind it. They then sent out a radar pulse to turn the Bat on the Cryptocledius, which worked, allowing them to escape, but the Tachyons stopped the fight and called the monsters back to Site Omega. All monsters were then sent into the world's major cities to cause destruction. The Giant Bat was sent to Paris.

Monster Wars: Part 3

The Giant Bat continued its rampage until H.E.A.T. deactivated the Tachyon control beacon. At that point, Giant Bat began to perceive Tachyon ships as intruders on its territory, and began to target them instead of humans. This behavior saved H.E.A.T.'s life when Giant Bat came to defend Site Omega. It then attacked Cyber-Godzilla with its sonic screech, but it produced a stronger wave that incapacitated the Giant Bat, who was kept on the island as it was adapted into a Mutation Research Facility.

S.C.A.L.E.

A few months later, the organization S.C.A.L.E. freed the monsters of Monster Island, including the Giant Bat. At this point, it had been outfitted with a high-tech collar that prevented it from using its sonic screech. Although it was uncaged, its movement was still restricted by security lasers that would fire at the collar. He faced a few monsters before being recaptured and returned to his area of the island.

Future Shock

In an alternate future where the D.R.A.G.M.A.s took over the earth, the Giant Bat was killed along with the other monsters of Monster Island.

Underground Movement

A giant mutant vampire bat, possibly the same creature, was briefly mentioned in the episode Underground Movement. Most of the H.E.A.T. team had to go to Florida to settle a lawsuit for the damages that were caused while Godzilla fought it. Fortunately, the suit was thrown out and H.E.A.T. returned to their mission.

Abilities

  • The Giant Bat's sonic screech is powerful enough to temporarily stun larger monsters like Godzilla and destroy structures such a monument in Paris.
  • The Giant Bat is able to fly at high speed and altitude for long periods of time.
  • The Giant Bat is strong enough to carry a wagon with several adult cows into the air.
  • The Giant Bat can deliver a painful bite.

Weaknesses

  • The Giant Bat's sensitive hearing can be used to confuse it, disorient it and disrupt its ability to navigate.
