Kamanga (カマンガ,   Kamanga), Hanenga (ハネンガ,   Hanenga), and Zenbunga (ゼンブンガ,   Zenbunga) are insect kaiju who appear alongside Kumonga in episode 9 of the 2021 anime Godzilla series, Godzilla Singular Point.

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.

Kamanga's name likely comes from the Japanese word kama (鎌), meaning "sickle," and Hanenga's from hane (羽 or 翅), meaning "wing." Both names were trademarked by Toho on October 6, 2020.[1][2]

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 "(the) 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 distinguished only by their insect-like wings. Kamanga take a few notable traits from Gigan and Kamacuras. They have scythe-like forelimbs (which bear resemblance to both Gigan's sickles and Kamacuras' claws) adorned with golden scales and buzzsaw-like spikes on the underside, as well as fins resembling Gigan's back sails on their upper arms. Rather than a Megalon-esque tail, Kamanga instead have stingers. Zenbunga combines the traits of its nestmates, possessing the wings and tail of the Hanenga, but with the forelimbs of Kamanga.

History[edit | edit source]

Reiwa era[edit | edit source]

Godzilla Singular Point[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.
