The Servum (セルヴァム,   Seruvamu?) are Godzilla spawn kaiju created by Toho who appear in the 2017 animated Godzilla film, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters.

Name

The Servum's name is derived from Latin, and is the gender-neutral accusative singular form of "servus," which means "servant" or "slave." They are never referred to by name in GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters nor GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle, but rather simply addressed as "them" or "those things," though they are at one point referred to as "lizard things." When Adam Bindewald reports to Mulu-Elu Galu-Gu following the Servums' attack on company A and Eliott Leland's subsequent orders, he describes them as "smaller, Godzilla-like creatures" (ゴジラ派生の小型生物?).

The Servum's types are denoted as Worm-type (ワーム型,   Wāmu-gata?) and Flying-type (飛翔型,   Hishō-gata?), or Pterosaur-type (翼竜型,   Yokuryū-gata?)

Design

The flying-type Servum has a thin, dark blue body with bumpy skin. It possesses two dragon-like wings on its back, which is lined from head to tail with pointed spikes. The Servum also possesses two thin hind legs and very small arms. The Servum's head sits atop a long neck, and has a long snout with a tooth-filled mouth. The Servum possesses multiple red eyes. An individual giant flying-type Servum much larger than the others appears exclusively in the GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters manga adaptation.

Origins

The Servum is a "subspecies" of Godzilla, and one of the creatures that inhabits the Earth's ecosystem 20,000 years into the future.[3] The Servum is 97% genetically identical to Godzilla, and consists of at least two types: the flying-type and the worm-type.

History

Post-Millennium Series

GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters

When a team of humans arrived on the Earth 20,000 years after humanity abandoned the planet to Godzilla, one of their companies was assaulted by a group of flying-type Servum. The beasts were eventually defeated, but not before killing multiple crew members and wrecking the engines of some of the crew's Landing Ships, leaving them stranded on the planet. Martin Lazzari analyzed the carcass of a Servum, and determined that it was very similar to the strange new plant life on the planet, as both had evolved under the influence of Godzilla's DNA. Later, during the humans' desperate battle against Godzilla, a flock of flying-type Servum attacked the fleet of Hover Bikes led by Rilu-Elu Belu-Be and Adam Bindewald. The pilots were able to kill some of the Servum and evade the rest, and continued the battle against Godzilla.

After Godzilla was destroyed, a huge earthquake struck the Tanzawa Forest area, causing several nearby Servum to take flight. The source of this earthquake was none other than the original Godzilla, now grown to over 300 meters in height.

GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle

While trying to locate a downed Landing Ship, Haruo Sakaki began to cross a foggy marsh surrounded by the tentacles of numerous worm-type Servum. Miana telepathically warned him of the danger before he was attacked, and he was able to escape the marsh unharmed. Later, while Haruo was trying to reach the Landing Ship with the other surviving members of his team, Yuko Tani wandered off from the group after detecting the same signal and began walking through the marsh. She was immediately restrained by the worm-type Servum's tentacles, and screamed out for help. Haruo and the others arrived and began opening fire on the Servum with their rifles, while Miana and her twin sister Maina killed the creatures with their Nanometal arrows. After Haruo and Martin Lazzari helped Yuko out of the marsh, a flock of flying-type Servum descended to feed on the worm type Servum's carcasses. After noticing the humans, the Servum prepared to attack, only for a Multipodal Battery driven by Metphies to appear from the jungle and open fire on them. The artillery killed numerous Servum, while the others retreated.

After passing through a cavern to locate the source of Mechagodzilla's signal, Haruo's group was attacked again by two flying-type Servum. Suddenly, the creatures were skewered by two Nanometal spikes that erupted from the ground, then their carcasses were absorbed by Nanometal. Haruo and his team soon learned that the source of the Nanometal spikes was Mechagodzilla City, the result of Mechagodzilla's Nanometal reconstructing its development facility over 20,000 years. As they approached the City, they passed the Nanometalized carcasses of several more flying-type Servum.

Abilities

Electromagnetic Pulse

The Servum can generate a strong electromagnetic pulse.

Flight

The flying-type Servum, true to its namesake, is capable of flight.

Burrowing

The worm-type Servum is capable of burrowing underground.

Durability

The flying-type Servum possesses armored metallic flesh, similar to Godzilla himself. They can withstand a limited amount of gunfire from human weapons, although sustained attacks can bring them down.

Roots

Worm-type Servum possess tentacular roots they can use to restrain prey.

Weaknesses

Servum are critically weak to Nanometal, which can easily pierce their hides and fatally wound them, after which they are typically assimilated by the material.

GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters

Episode #5

A giant flying-type Servum in GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters Episode #5

A squad of United Earth soldiers came under siege by a swarm of Servum, but were able to repel them using a Powered Suit. However, a gigantic variant of the creatures appeared before Rilu-Elu Belu-Be. An injured soldier, who Belu-Be had been helping get to safety, fell to the ground and was stomped on by the giant Servum, killing the man instantaneously. With the beast looming over Belu-Be, it prepared to attack him but was knocked to the ground by a shot from a Multipodal Battery, piloted by Eliott Leland. As Leland remarked to the monster not to underestimate him, he fired several more blasts, dealing massive damage and prompting the Servum to attempt to flee. A nearby Landing Ship charged up for a blast, however, and killed the monster overhead with one piercing shot. The giant Servum then crashed to the ground, with a large hole straight through the center of its carcass.

@KaijuUnity,

  1. Swearing is unnecessary.
  2. Just because you think a kaiju isn't in a movie doesn't mean you have to swear.
  3. Please make sure that what your saying is 100% accurate before posting comments.

That's not exactly surprising considering that Biollante, SpaceGodzilla, Orga and Megaguirus also have atomic breath or a different variation of it.

It wouldn't be a new Godzilla monster without some sort of connection to any previously existing monster. All joking aside though, I can't wait to see the new monsters from the anime trilogy.
