First Appearance Kong: Skull Island

The Sker Buffalo is a giant water buffalo kaiju that appears in the 2017 Legendary Pictures film, Kong: Skull Island.

Design

The Sker Buffalo superficially resembles an abnormally large water buffalo, but has some distinct traits. It possesses incredibly large horns, which appear to fork into at least three branches. The Sker Buffalo has what appears to be algae covering a large portion of its body, most likely due to its habit of spending long amounts of time underwater. Its back is shaped like coral so as to allow it to blend in perfectly with its surroundings while underwater.[2]

Personality

Sker Buffaloes appear to be docile creatures, and never threaten the human characters in any way, unlike most of the other creatures on Skull Island. Even Kong appears to get along well with these creatures, as he is seen rescuing one that is pinned underneath a fallen helicopter, and appears visibly enraged upon seeing one killed by a Skullcrawler.

Origins

According to the Monarch superspecies report about the Sker Buffalo, it shares common ancestry with the Asian water buffalo. The Sker Buffalo has evolved many unusual traits, including the ability to remain submerged completely underwater for long periods of time. Its most unique adaptation is its florafaunal biology: the Sker Buffalo has incorporated plant life into its anatomy, and two chambers of its heart actually pump chlorophyll into the foliage growing from its back.[1]

History

MonsterVerse

Kong: Skull Island

While wandering through the wilderness of Skull Island, some of the survivors of the Monarch expedition to the island witnessed a Sker Buffalo emerging from a lake. The creature approached the group, but James Conrad insisted they remain calm and not open fire on the animal. The Sker Buffalo stared at the humans for a few moments before turning around and walking away. Meanwhile, Kong came upon the corpse of a Sker Buffalo, which had just recently been killed by a Skullcrawler, which Kong promptly fought and killed.

After hearing a strange noise, Mason Weaver wandered out of the Iwi village and found a Sker Buffalo pinned underneath a fallen helicopter. She tried to free the Buffalo from the wreckage, but could not lift the wreckage. Suddenly, the entire helicopter was pulled off the Buffalo, and Weaver stared up in shock to see Kong had rescued the smaller creature.

Abilities

Amphibiousness

The Sker Buffalo is an amphibious creature, and can remain completely submerged underwater for several days at a time.[2]

Camouflage

The coral-shaped surface of the Sker Buffalo's back allows it to blend in seamlessly with its surroundings.[2]

A video posted on various KSI social media accounts (https://www....72792261141/) says that the Sker Buffalo's horns are equal to a Grumman OV's wingspan (48 feet). Not sure how to add that particular stat to the infobox.

Yup. He was also the least villanous, save for maybe the spore mantis, who wasn't really a villain either.

Of course it should get its own page, it should've had one long ago. MUTOResearch.net got a page when it had nothing but the console.

We finally have a page for him! The buffalo is secretly the true villain of Skull Island. The Skull Crawlers are just side characters.
