"Pass the Butter"

Films: Ebirah, Horror of the Deep (1966), All Monsters Attack (1969)

Alias: Evirah

Type: Mutant

Location: Ocean

Height/Weight: 50 meters and 23,000 metric tons.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: What tastes better than a nice cooked lobster with butter on the side? Not much, they say. How effective is a big one as a guard for your evil organization? Run away, they say!

History: Somewhere on Letchi Island, the nefarious Red Bamboo organization has set up base. They have enslaved the locals and even taken control of some monsters. Those being an annoying giant condor, and Ebirah, the giant lobster that guards the water surrounding the island so that no one gets in or out. The only problem is that no one thought of controlling the neighboring Godzilla…

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Ebirah fights Godzilla twice (half of which is inexplicably a boulder volleyball game), and gets his limbs ripped off at the end before retreating. Before that, though, the Red Bamboo loses control of him and the rest is history.

Powers/Abilities: None.

Weakness: Something of greater or equal power, like Godzilla.

Scariness Factor: 4-The last thing you want to encounter on the open waters is a massive crustacean taking orders from terrorists! It'd be like ISIS having access to giant killer sand worms in their home land. And now we must go shave the big shrimp's back for getting political on this site for movie monsters.

Trivia: -Ebirah's name mostly comes from the Japanese word for shrimp, "ebi".

-Ebirah was originally going to fight King Kong, but trademark problems prevented that from happening.

They took their battle too far!!!

"Just ignore it and keep walking..."

What's wrong with Ebirah's name?

Wow! Mothra got straight-up possessed!

A Heisei spoiler that didn't even need a stock-photo.

Godzilla's secret to his boiled lobster recipe.
"I, Ebirah, claim dominion over the sur-OH, GOD! WHAT IS THAT?!"

Greatest challenge? Uh...

And thus, they learned of volleyball.

Mothra: The first organic ariel transport vehicle of Japan.

Mothra's looking a bit Heisei herself.

This is the most awesome this film can be. And it's a poster. Dang.
