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 animated Godzilla series, Godzilla Singular Point.

Name

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 "all" or "entire," due to combining 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, aratus, is taken from the Latin word for "ploughed", and Zenbunga's epithet is ultima, Latin for "final".

Design

Kamanga and Hanenga appear nearly identical to Kumonga, who itself takes after the Showa kaiju Megalon. Hanenga are distinguished only by their insectlike wings. Kamanga take a few notable traits from Gigan. They have scythe-like forelimbs adorned with golden scales and buzzsaw-like spikes on the underside, and fins resembling Gigan's back sails on their upper arms. Rather than a Megalon horn tail, Kamanga instead have stingers. Zenbunga combines the traits of its nestmates, possessing the wings and tail of the Hanenga, but with the scythes of Kamanga.
