Yellowback simply resembles a giant coral snake. Due to the books' illustrations being in black and white, Yellowback's coloration is unknown.
Yellowback encounters Godzilla in America, teaming up with Varan and fellow snake monster Rattler to fight him. Yellowback constricts Godzilla with his long body, but they eventually settle their dispute and band together with more of Earth's monsters to travel to Monster Island.
Yellowback plays a pivotal role in the final battle against King Ghidorah, biting its wing in order to ground the three-headed dragon.
- Manda's copyright icon appears on the back covers of both Godzilla: Journey to Monster Island and Godzilla vs. the Space Monster despite the character never appearing in either story. It is possible this was either an error or that Toho felt the snake monsters Yellowback and Rattler were similar enough to Manda to require use of the license.
