Name[edit | edit source]
Kamanga's, Hanenga's, and Zenbunga's Japanese names are derived from that of Kumonga, with which they share the same final two kana.
Zenbunga's name was revealed much later than the rest through the godzilla-sp.jp site after episode 11 of the series aired, and is not trademarked. It is derived from zenbu (全部), meaning "whole [thing]" or "entire," due to possessing all of the traits of Kumonga, Kamanga, and Hanenga.
Each of the three species' binomial names follow real world taxonomic nomenclature, all being congeners of each other and Kumonga. In Latin, Kamanga's species epithet, falcipes, means "sickle foot" (presumably referring to Kamanga's scythes); Hanenga's, alatus, is Latin for "winged"; and Zenbunga's epithet is ultima, Latin for "final."
Design[edit | edit source]
Kamanga and Hanenga appear nearly identical to Kumonga, who itself takes after the Showa kaiju Megalon. Hanenga are identical to Kumonga and are distinguished only by their insect-like wings. Kamanga take a few notable traits from Gigan. They have scythe-like forelimbs (which bear resemblance to Gigan's sickles) adorned with golden scales and spikes that resemble Gigan's buzzsaw on its femur, as well as fins resembling Gigan's back sails on their upper arms and a row of frontward curving spikes on their back similar to Gigan's head spikes. Rather than a Megalon horn-shaped stinger, Kamanga instead have upward turned stingers possibly meant to represent Gigan's head spikes as well. Zenbunga combines the traits of its nestmates, possessing the wings and stinger of the Hanenga, but with the forelimbs of Kamanga.
Origins[edit | edit source]
It is implied that these insects emerged from a beached Manda corpse alongside Kumonga.
History[edit | edit source]
"Erumpent"[edit | edit source]
As Jet Jaguar continued to fight the Kumongas, they were joined by Kamanga, Hanenga, and finally Zenbunga. A fierce battle began, which eventually led to the warehouse exploding. Jet Jaguar's battery began to run low, causing the robot to abandon the spiders and escape on a boat with the Otaki crew and the men they rescued. The remaining arachnids' fate is unknown.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Physical abilities[edit | edit source]
Kamanga and Zenbunga have giant scythe-like hands that they use to both stab opponents and block attacks. They are also capable of leaping at opponents.
Flight[edit | edit source]
Hanenga and Zenbunga are capable of flight.
Reanimation[edit | edit source]
Kamanga, Hanenga, and Zenbunga all can reanimate themselves in the form of a blue gelatinous mass in their body just like Kumonga. This allows them to fight even after being cut in half or bisected.
