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

Showa Series

Mothra

When Shin'ichi Chūjō was exploring Infant Island on his own, he comes across mutated flora. As he passed through the low hanging vines, the plants attacked him, squeezing him to unconsciousness. Before passing out, the last thing he sees are the Shobijin, who save his life.

Abilities

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

Are you sure we can call this a Kaiju? It's like calling a venomous flytrap a Kaiju.

Well yes, but Anacondas and Pythons eat people and we don't call them kaijus.

What is it with Tsuburaya Productions and Toho, and their obesssion with living plants in the Showa era?

First we had the Vampire Plant, then TsuPro invented Sunflan, then we had the Maneater!
