The Vampire Plant (吸血植物,   Kyūketsu Shokubutsu, lit. Bloodsucking Plant) is a mutated plant kaiju created by Toho that first appears in the 1961 Toho film, Mothra.

Name

The Vampire Plant's name was given to it by the characters of the original Mothra film. The "vampire" part of its name probably means that it kills people and animals and eats them.

Design

The Vampire Plant's vines have a purple color to them. They look much like normal vines outside of that.

Origins

The Vampire Plant was mutated due to atomic testing on Infant Island.

History

Abilities

The Vampire Plant has constricting vines, which are used to squeeze the life out of its victims.
