First appearance All Monsters Attack

The Maneater (人喰い植物,   Hitokui Shokubutsu, lit. Man-Eating Plant) is a humanoid plant kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 1969 Godzilla film, All Monsters Attack.

Name

The Maneater's Japanese name, Hitokui Shokubutsu, literally translates to "man-eating plant," referencing how it grabbed Ichiro Miki and tried to eat him. A 2008 Cast ornament of the creature gives it the full name Man-Eating Plant of Dream Monster Island (夢の怪獣島の人食い植物,   Yume no Kaijū-tō no Hitokui Shokubutsu).[1]

Design

The Maneater is very humanoid, having the same body shape of a human and having arms and legs. Unlike humans, however, the Maneater's body is made out of green leaves, letting it blend with the jungle environment of Monster Island.

Personality

The Maneater doesn't have a true personality, though it seems to instinctively grab prey that walks in front of it and try to eat them.

Origins

The Maneater is a figment of Ichiro's imagination.

History

Showa Series

All Monsters Attack

The Maneater appears when Ichiro Miki walks in front of it, distracted by watching Minilla trying to fire atomic breath in front of Godzilla but failing. The Maneater sneakily grabs Ichiro, puts him up to his body, and covers his mouth so he can't talk. Ichiro then wakes up from his dream and realizes that he was being kidnapped by the robbers who were hiding out on the same place he was in.

I mean, Ichiro FELL ASLEEP while he was being kidnapped! I mean, what kind of EJJIT does something like that.

Sadly, believe it or not, i know dumber people.

Because he isn't really a Kaiju (in my opinion)!

is there any fanart of maneater? It would be useful for figuring out where the monster starts and where it ends.

There probably isn't. Lots of people don't even know that this thing has a name.

Biollante is half-Godzilla. Maneater is not.

This kaiju is involved in one of the cooler scenes where Ichiro's dream world parallels with the real. I think if his scene lasted longer I would've liked him more

Quite possibly the least important monster in the entire franchise.

I never even noticed this thing in the movie for some reason.

Probably because it makes an incredibly short appearance, is obscured by trees and barely does anything.

This thing definitely needs to make a comeback.
