The Shrewster (シュルースター,   Shurūsutā) is a masked shrew kaiju that first appeared in the Godzilla: The Series episode "Cash of the Titans," but chronologically debuted in the episode "The Twister."

History[edit | edit source]

Godzilla: The Series[edit | edit source]

"The Twister"[edit | edit source]

During an accident at a power plant, a normal shrew was mutated into a gigantic beast encased in a tornado that it used to suck up food. The Shrewster eventually made its way to New York, where it attracted the attention of H.E.A.T., who eventually developed a device to depressurize the Shrewster's tornado. After a run-in with H.E.A.T. in Connecticut, the Shrewster attacked New York again, where H.E.A.T. activated the device and forced the Shrewster out of his tornado. Godzilla then attacked the Shrewster, but due to the Shrewster's superior speed he was quickly defeated. Dr. Niko Tatopoulos then distracted the Shrewster from the fallen Godzilla, and trapped him in some stage scaffolding. The Shrewster was then slated to be taken to Monster Island.

"Cash of the Titans"[edit | edit source]

Rather than be taken to Monster Island, the Shrewster was captured by wealthy businessman Maximilian Spiel and forced to fight in his monster arena. The Shrewster was pitted against a Giant Centipede, and emerged victorious.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Tornado[edit | edit source]

The Shrewster's primary form of transportation, defense, and attack all at the same time was a tornado that encased the Shrewster. This is a result of the Shrewster having fused with the twister generated during the same experiment that caused the animal to mutate to gigantic size. The tornado made the Shrewster a force to be reckoned with, allowing it to damage cities and monsters alike and providing a form of protection from weapons such as Godzilla's atomic breath.

Claws and teeth[edit | edit source]

The Shrewster was able to pierce Godzilla's skin simply by using its claws. The Shrewster uses its teeth to grab onto opponents, and this method was capable of bringing Godzilla to the ground.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Shrewster could be inspired by the creatures that starred in the film The Killer Shrews, and also bears some resemblance to Taz the Tasmanian Devil from Looney Toons, due to the fact they both can create tornadoes that surround them.
