Trilobite.jpg
Godzilla (1954)
Main article: Trilobite.
In Godzilla, a living trilobite was discovered by Dr. Kyohei Yamane in one of Godzilla's footprints on Odo Island. Yamane concluded from the creature's presence in the footprint along with the age of the sediment found with it that Godzilla must have been living in a deep underwater pocket since the Jurassic before being disturbed by H-bomb testing. In Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, Dr. Tokumitsu Yuhara created a cybernetic "Mecha-Trilobite." This technology would lay the groundwork for the construction of Kiryu using the original Godzilla's skeleton.

The brainchild of Kazuma Aoki, the Pteranodon Robot was a flying vehicle modeled after the Pteranodons he adored so much. Aoki brought the completed robot to the enclosure where BabyGodzilla was being held by the United Nations Godzilla Countermeasures Center and cared for by Azusa Gojo. Aoki let Azusa ride on the robot with him, but as they passed over Baby's enclosure the robot sputtered and suddenly dropped out of the sky, crashing in the enclosure. Both Aoki and Azusa were unhurt, though the Pteranodon Robot was damaged.

History

The Giant Slugs were created after the human race's struggle for survival led them to the Gibberellin, a plant which triples the growth rate of an average food harvest and the Earth's pollution after corporations disobeyed the Japanese government's efforts to take care of the environment at all costs. Instead of complying to the agreement, corporations merely developed a technique to mask the noxious fumes being poured into the sky. So, after the excessive amounts of pollution and the Gibberellin's hormones, the Earth's slugs were mutated into the Giant Slugs. Alas, the Japanese government wasted no time in eradicating the over-sized mollusks, sending flamethrower-equipped soldiers to take care of the creatures. Thanks to the Self Defense Force, every last one of the Giant Slugs were burned alive.

While a crew of sailors was sailing aboard their boat in the ocean, they witnessed the Dragon surface near their boat. Their first reaction was to shoot the Dragon with harpoons, landing only a few hits. The Dragon then swam at full speed toward the ship, destroying it and killing all aboard.

  • In addition to a prop of the monster's entire body, special effects director Teruyoshi Nakano also constructed a large animatronic of the Dragon's neck.
  • A popular rumor is that the Dragon prop was originally constructed for the unmade Toho and Hammer collaboration film Nessie, and reused by Teruyoshi Nakano for Princess from the Moon. However, given that Nessie was cancelled nearly a decade before Princess from the Moon was produced, and that no confirmation of this is made in any known official books, this rumor is likely false.

Name Image Appearance(s) Description
Macro seahorse
The Giant Seahorses first sighted by the Calico
Godzilla episode 23,
"The Macro-Beasts"
As their name suggests, these are seahorses mutated to gigantic proportions and are mostly accurate to their real-life counterparts, with segmented bony armor covered with an outer skin, an upright posture, equine features, and a curled prehensile tail. The only slight exception would be that of elongated crown-like spines or horns protruding from the back of their heads and necks, which seems uncommon for most species of Seahorse. The Giant Seahorses are lightly green colored with yellowish underbellies and wide yellowish eyes. Upon first seeing the Giant Seahorses, Pete comments on the Seahorses being 'the size of real horses', however by the climax of the episode, the Giant Seahorses have grown three-or-more-times that size, when compared to the Calico's Mini-Subs.
History

The Giant Seahorses were among several marine animals enlarged to giant size, thanks to recent volcanic eruptions and a mysterious underground substance emerging from Capaldi Island; a relatively young formation which itself was created by the aforementioned geological activity. The Giant Seahorses were the very first of the enlarged animals, dubbed Macro-Beasts, to be spotted by the crew of the Calico, as the creatures swam quite gracefully on-top of the ocean's surface.

Seemingly harmless creatures, compared to the more antagonistic Giant Manta Ray, the Giant Seahorses were still herded along with their fellow Macro-Beasts and collared into an isolated pool near Calpadi's shore, thanks to the Calico Mini-Subs piloted by Captain Majors and first-mate Brock, though one Giant Seahorse did try to attempt an escape before being rounded back up with the others. Once entrapped within said pool, a gigantic iceberg brought by Godzilla was used to change the water's temperature, as cold icy water reversed the combined growing effects of the mysterious substance and volcanically heated water on the Macro-Beasts, transforming the Giant Seahorses and the rest of their enlarged brethren back to their original sizes.

Abilities
  • The giant sea horses are extraordinary swimmers.
Trivia
  • The mysterious purple substance that enlarges the Macro-Beasts is likely a direct reference to the titular subterranean chemical from H.G. Wells' novel The Food of the Gods and How It Came to Earth, which also enlarged any life-form which consumed it.
  • Not counting purely fanciful and comedic plays on the pun within the species' namesake, giant monsters based off on the otherwise benign and beloved seahorses are rather rare in fiction, with a scant example being Mega-Jappa from Ultraman Orb.
Macro jellyfish
Fullscreen capture 5242018 91352 AM.bmp.jpg
Godzilla episode 23,
"The Macro-Beasts"
History

The giant jellyfish was one of several marine animals enlarged to giant size, thanks to recent volcanic eruptions and a mysterious underground, gooey substance emerging from Capaldi Island; a relatively young formation which itself was created by the aforementioned geological activity. The combination of heated water and the edible substances resulted in the once normal jellyfish and its fellow sea creatures assuming such gigantic proportions, becoming the Macro-Beasts. It was the second Macro-Beast to be encountered by the visiting crew of the Calico, floating upon the ocean's surface.

Trivia
  • Brock comments on the Giant Jellyfish being 'the size of a whale,' however when visually compared to the Calico itself in the episode, the Giant Jellyfish appears to be even bigger than Godzilla himself.
Macro crab
Macro-Crab.jpg
Godzilla episode 23,
"The Macro-Beasts"
The giant crab was among several marine animals enlarged to giant size, thanks to recent volcanic eruptions and a mysterious underground substance emerging from Capaldi Island; a relatively young formation which itself was created by the aforementioned geological activity. The giant crab disabled the Calico crew's mini sub's radio and attempted to drag both Dr. Quinn and Brock into its cave. Luckily, Brock rescued them both by overheating the mini sub's engine, burning the giant crab's claw and allowing them to escape and return to the Calico.
Macro electric eel
Macro eel.jpg
Godzilla episode 23,
"The Macro-Beasts"
The giant eels were among several marine animals enlarged to giant size, thanks to recent volcanic eruptions and a mysterious underground substance emerging from Capaldi Island; a relatively young formation which itself was created by the aforementioned geological activity. A large pack giant electric eels attacked Majors and Brock, disabling their barriers and threatening to kill them. Majors called on Godzilla, who arrived just in time to frighten off the eels with his lasers, wrangling them into the cave.
Macro manta ray
Giant Manta Ray.png
Godzilla episode 23,
"The Macro-Beasts"
History

The giant manta ray was mutated from the extreme heat of a volcanic explosion in the ocean. When it noticed the Calico, it tried to attack, but Godzilla was summoned. The beast shot an energy bolt at Godzilla, an ineffective attack which he countered with a punch, sending it back to its reef.

After all the ocean creatures were put in the reef, the giant manta ray flew out of the water and started fighting Godzilla again. Godzilla squeezed it and threw it back to the reef. While it was sinking, Godzilla threw an iceberg at the reef which dropped the temperature and made all the animals their normal sizes again.

Abilities
  • The giant manta ray can fire a bolt of energy from its tail.
Macro fish and sealife
Giant tropical fish feeds on the mutagen
Godzilla episode 23,
"The Macro-Beasts"
History

The giant fish were among several marine animals enlarged to giant size, thanks to recent volcanic eruptions and a mysterious underground substance emerging from Capaldi Island; a relatively young formation which itself was created by the aforementioned geological activity. Giant blue fish, a giant sea turtle and a giant starfish are briefly seen by Dr. Quinn and Brock as they descend to uncover the cause of the Macro-Beasts. The giant tropical fish plays a vital role in the discovery of the Super-Food mutagen as it is witnessed increasing in size by Dr. Quinn and Brock. Other members of its species can be seen in the coral corral. The giant goldfish differed from the rest of the Macro-Beasts as it was found aboard the Calico, where Dr. Quinn fed it the Super-Food; it was quickly reverted to its normal size after being exposed to ice water. Giant white fish, tuna and barracuda are briefly seen as Dr. Quinn and Pete are relaying information from the Mini-Copter to Captain Major and Brock. A giant swordfish was seen along with giant sharks and macro squids as they were being corralled into the Coral Corral be Capt. Major and Brock. Giant red fish, yellow fish, tropical blue fish, sailfish and a sea turtle were seen in the final scene when they began to shrink.

Godzilla, King of the Monsters
History

A new species of Ankylosaurus discovered by Doctor Oniyama with the assistance of a version of himself who travelled through time, Ankylosaurus's fossilised skeleton was placed on display at a Dinosaur Expo. With the Expo in operation, the two Oniyamas used KIDS to fire a beam into the fossil to revive it, resulting in a living Ankylosaurus. Aware that Godzilla would come to protect Hideo Kaneko and his friends, who were at the Expo, the Oniyamas used KIDS to devolve Godzilla into Godzillasaurus, and the two ancient reptiles fought. With Ankylosaurus losing the fight, KIDS was used again to fire a syringe full of DNA into Ankylosaurus's body, causing it to rapidly grow into a full-size Anguirus.

Gallery
  • The Ankylosaurus' roar is rendered as "Gyaaasu" (ギャアアス).
  • According to Doctor Oniyama, Ankylosaurus's species was a natural rival to that of Godzillasaurus.
