Skeetera (能力吸収怪獣 スキートラ,   Nōryoku Kyūshū Kaijū Sukītora, lit. Power-Absorbing Monster Skeetera) is a giant mosquito kaiju created by TriStar Pictures that first appeared in the Godzilla: The Series episode "S.C.A.L.E."

Design

Being a mutated mosquito, Skeetera strongly resembles one. She possesses a hard, dark brown exoskeleton, a proboscis, yellow eyes, and two indigo insectoid wings as well as a collection of spines sticking out of her back. Her abdomen is massive, dangling down from her body.

History

Godzilla: The Series

"S.C.A.L.E."

A mutated mosquito that lived in the Florida wetlands, Skeetera eventually attacked Miami to find more populated feeding grounds. There, she was attacked by Godzilla, where she demonstrated her power absorption abilities by copying Godzilla's atomic breath. Despite assistance from the eco-terrorist group known as the Servants of Creatures Arriving Late to Earth, or S.C.A.L.E., Skeetera was captured by H.E.A.T. and the local military and transported to Monster Island, the former base of operations for the Leviathan Aliens when it was known as Site Omega. Not long after her arrival, S.C.A.L.E. also arrived to free the mutations contained on the island. Skeetera roamed the island haven, attacking and absorbing blood samples and the energy of various mutations. While Crustaceous Rex and King Cobra were put back in their areas, Skeetera attacked the Giant Bat, slamming it into the ground before Godzilla arrived. The two battled on until Skeetera knocked Godzilla down and tried to drain his blood again. Before Skeetera could do this, however, Godzilla used his tail to smack Skeetera into a power plant and knock her unconscious. After being neutralized, Skeetera was placed in her own isolated area of the island.

"Future Shock"

In an alternate future in which the D.R.A.G.M.A.s overran Earth, Major Hicks released all of the mutations on Monster Island in a desperate attempt to stop the creatures. Skeetera was likely among the freed mutations and, like the rest, perished in the battle.

Abilities

Energy absorption

When Skeetera drains the blood of another mutation, she will gain their powers and also increase in size and mass. She will then be able to use these powers for a short period of time and can even combine attacks to make them stronger.

Physical capabilities

Even for her size, Skeetera is brutal in physical combat, as seen on Monster Island when she was able to take the much bigger King Cobra down to the ground. She also slammed the Giant Bat into structures with no effort at all and held her own against Godzilla.

Weaknesses

Skeetera will become weaker when dehydrated, and also loses her absorbed energy.

Trivia

  • Because of Skeetera's ability to further mutate by sucking mutated blood, she may be a reference to Shockirus.
  • Skeetera is similar to Megaguirus, as both are spiky mutated insects who gain abilities through absorbing the blood/energy of other monsters. However, Skeetera debuted first.
