Baby Jiger - 3.png
Gamera vs.
Length: ~2 meters

After Jiger injected an egg inside of Gamera's lung, her baby hatched inside the monster's body and began draining him of his blood. When Hiroshi Kitayama and Tommy Williams entered Gamera's body in a submarine, they found the baby Jiger, which began to chase them through the corridors of Gamera's insides. It shot a slimy white goo from its snout, causing Hiroshi's feet to become stuck to the ground. Luckily, he managed to free himself and the pair escaped to their submersible. As the baby Jiger began shooting more of the goo, the kids threw their communication device at it, causing it to stick to the juvenile monster's face. A team of humans on the surface then broadcast a special frequency through the communicator which the baby Jiger was susceptible to, ultimately killing it.

(ドジラ,   Dojira)
Gamera Super Monster (1980) After touching down in Japan on Giruge's orders to destroy Earth, the rampaging Gamera knocked over a sign advertising a monster movie entitled Farewell Dodzilla (さらばドジラ) which was having a roadshow theatrical release at the Izumi Hall in Shinjuku.
  • Dodzilla is a clear reference to Godzilla, in both the monster's name and appearance. Dodzilla specifically resembles the MegaroGoji suit, but with less pronounced dorsal plates. The film title "Farewell Dodzilla" may be in reference to Godzilla's hiatus from 1975 onward; the first Heisei era Godzilla film, The Return of Godzilla, would not premiere until 1984, four years after the release of Gamera Super Monster.
Garasharp's babies

Gamera vs. Garasharp Storyboard 10.png
Gamera vs.
After Gamera defeated the attacking Garasharp by slicing off her head, twin juvenile Garasharps emerged from her body. The military attempted to fire on them, but Gamera rescued them by flying them on his back to a remote island. After removing their fangs and horns, Gamera left the twins on the island to grow up in peace.
  • A card for the baby Garasharps was included in the Gamera, Gappa, Guilala Special Effects Encyclopedia series under the name Giant Evil Beast Garasharp children (大邪獣ガラシャープ・子供) with "GARASHARP BABY" written in English.
Beta version Gameras
(ガメラの墓場,   Gamera no hakaba, lit. Gamera's graveyard)
Beta Gameras - 5.png
Gamera 3:
Revenge of Iris
While surveying the ocean floor, a submarine crew discovered a graveyard of shelled skeletons resembling the monster Gamera. Shinya Kurata later proposed that these were deceased "beta versions" of Gamera; failed prototypes created by the Atlanteans which had once been imbued with mana, but were discarded upon Gamera himself being successfully created.
Concept art
  • The skeletal Gameras were designed by Mahiro Maeda, who aimed for them to appear slightly mechanical.[1] They were portrayed primarily using shells from Gamera model kits by M1 and Kaiyodo, though a miniature skull made from Styrofoam and a hard skull model roughly in scale with the Gamera suit were also used for closer shots.[2]
Unnamed tentacled monster

GAMERA (2015)
Main article: Unnamed tentacled monster.

A creature of unknown origin which appeared at the very end of the 2015 GAMERA short film; this monster had the ability to fire unusual energy spheres that could destroy anything caught in their radius. Gamera arrived to confront the creature, though the outcome of his battle with it was not shown.

Zoulla maquette.jpg
Nezura 1964 (2021) Tasked with deciding what kind of monster should star in an upcoming Daiei film, special effects director Yonejiro Tsukaji and assistant director Kazuaki Yukawa visit a zoo in Tokyo for inspiration. Yukawa first suggests an elephant monster, prompting Tsukaji to imagine "Zoulla", presented as a maquette by sculptor Kosaku Takizawa.
Giraafus maquette.jpg
Yukawa next considers a giraffe monster, causing Tsukaji to picture another maquette.

When it was moments from stepping on her, Masten Thrust pushed her out of the way.

Despite being described as a ceratopsian in the film itself, the creature more closely resembles a Uintatherium, a genus of prehistoric herbivorous mammal that lived during the Eocene Epoch.
Giant turtle

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016) Allies: Alien SpaceshipEnemies: Michelle • Roar:
Main article: Mutant Space Worm.

The destruction of Howard's bunker attracted the attention of an alien spaceship, which dropped down a Mutant Space Worm to investigate. Michelle was unable to start Howard's truck, and trying to open his neighbor's nearby car only set off its alarm. Hiding from the creature in a shed, she found the neighbor's remains and used her keys to distract the monster. As she ran towards the house, the Mutant Space Worm chased her for a time, then withdrew as the craft returned to spray her with toxic gas. She survived by putting the mask of her makeshift hazmat suit back on. Once the gas dissipated, the Mutant Space Worm attacked again, removing her mask as she tried to hide in the truck. It retreated again, this time for good, after the spaceship extended a pair of tentacles to lift the truck off the ground.

  • The Mutant Space Worm was to attack Michelle one more time after she destroyed the alien spaceship, but a test audience rejected it as overkill.

Genetically-edited rat
Fullscreen capture 982018 93800 AM.bmp.jpg
Rampage (2018) An experiment on board the satellite Athena-1 turned a lab rat into a ravenous monster. It killed all of the crew members except Dr. Kerry Aktins and compromised the satellite's hull integrity during its deadly rampage. Claire Wyden, the owner of Athena-1 and CEO of the biotech company Energyne, informed Aktins that she would not be let into the escape capsule until she retrieved the other samples of R-19, the compound which caused the rat's mutation. Aktins evaded the murderous rat and departed Athena-1 just before it exploded with three canisters in tow. But the scratches the creature left on a glass window of the capsule soon caused it to shatter, killing Aktins and sending the R-19 canisters hurtling towards the United States, eventually leading to the creation of three far more powerful mutated animals.
  • The 1986 Atari Lynx version of Rampage included a rat monster named Larry.

Chatter was the pet cyborg parrot of the Remy family's housekeeper Anita. At some point shortly before 2039, Chatter's wing was replaced with a bionic prosthetic in a life-saving surgery, causing the bird to proclaim himself the "first bionic bird". He remains with Anita for the rest of the series.

  • Chatter was voiced by Alessandro Juliani in the show's first season, but in the second season he was replaced by Vincent Tong.
Cyborg seal
Cyber seal.png
A young seal with a prosthetic flipper inhabited the Remy Natural History and Marine Preserve on Alcatraz Island in 2050. Not caring for the park's conservation efforts, Dr. Richard Remy ordered that its habitat be demolished to expand his Biono-bot exhibits, but the zookeeper keeping watch and Lukas Remy made sure this did not happen.
Lady was an adult female liger who, along with her cub Lucky, are implied to have been kept as exotic pets before being deemed too large and difficult for their owners to care for before being cast out into the wild and rescued by Lukas Remy and Doug Jones in the year 2050. She was brought to the Remy Natural History and Marine Preserve on Alcatraz Island. She lived comfortably there, and while she was initially defensive toward Kong, a conversation with Danny Quon made sure they got along. After Kong escaped the park, Lady and Lucky were taken by Dr. Richard Remy as bait for a trap to frame the ape for a heist. Lady and her cub were taken to a military warehouse, and Lady was immensely afraid, causing her heart rate to skyrocket. Eventually, they were rescued by Lukas and Jones but by freeing them, the humans set off a detonation timer. They rushed to leave the warehouse, but Lady was rather slow, and was saved from the brunt of the blast by Kong. Unfortunately, the whole ordeal put too much strain on Lady's heart and she died shortly after her rescue.
  • In the real world, male ligers are sterile and thus unable to reproduce (female ligers, however, are fertile and thus can reproduce, but only with male lions and male tigers, producing rare second-generation hybrids known as liligers and tiligers, respectively), and both male and female ligers can only be bred by crossing male lions with female tigers, which would make Lady mothering Lucky an impossibility.
Lucky and his mother Lady were exotic pets that were rescued in 2050 by Lukas Remy and Doug Jones. They were taken to the Remy Natural History and Marine Preserve on Alcatraz Island, where they were cared for by the staff. Lucky managed to befriend Danny Quon and Kong, who were allowed to feed him with a bottle. After Kong escaped the park, Dr. Richard Remy made a plan to defame the ape using Lucky and his mother as bait to get him into trouble. They were brought to a military warehouse and tied to a countdown detonator that would begin when the ligers were freed. When Lukas and Jones came to rescue them, Lukas ran with Lucky to escape the blast, but his mother did not survive.
  • In the real world, male ligers are sterile and thus unable to reproduce (female ligers, however, are fertile and thus can reproduce, but only with male lions and male tigers, producing rare second-generation hybrids known as liligers and tiligers, respectively), and both male and female ligers can only be bred by crossing male lions with female tigers, meaning it would be impossible for Lady to be Lucky's biological mother. The fact that he is bottle-fed, even while in his mother's presence, suggests that this may be the case, even in the TV series.
Lady clones
Richard and Bionoclones.png
Using DNA from the dead Lady, Richard Remy produced three "Biono-clones" based on her. They were later rescued and relocated to live with a small pack of male tigers.

Kong Reborn (2005)
Weight: 300 pounds[6]

Matthilde was a female language-trained western gorilla who was the pride and joy of Denham Products, where she lived in the zoos and farms that made up its lower levels. However, she was so gentle and well-behaved that she was allowed to roam freely around the facilities, excluding the sterile rooms.

One night, Jack Denham, whom Matthilde recognized as the "Big Boss" and had been told to respect, came to the meeting room where Matthilde sat signing with Laurel Otani. Matthilde did not understand what was happening, but she appreciated the jovial atmosphere, and was given a bit of champagne, which made her proclaim that Jack was a good man who should come more often. Laurel then told Matthilde that she was going to be a mother, but suspected that Matthilde did not believe her. In reality, Matthilde had been selected as the surrogate mother for their experiment to clone King Kong.

When Matthilde's ova accepted Kong's reconstructed blood cells, most accepted them, but only three were inserted back into Matthilde's womb, where two implanted. The weaker of the two was terminated, and Matthilde became the most pampered pregnant gorilla on the planet from November of 2004 to March of 2005. However, within months it was already apparent that the fetus would be too large for Matthilde to carry to term. She was given a Caesarean section in March of 2005, and the fetus was transferred to an artificial womb to continue its gestation. After the surgery, Matthilde made a full recovery and was just as healthy and intelligent as ever. Within months, Kong had grown bigger than his surrogate mother. Unfortunately, it seemed that by that time their interactions had ceased, if indeed they had any after the surgery.
