Ganimes (ガニメ,   Ganime?) is a giant stone crab kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 1970 Toho film, Space Amoeba.


Ganimes' name comes from the Japanese word kani (蟹?), meaning crab, and me, a kaiju name suffix.


Showa Series

Space Amoeba

Ganimes, originally a normal stone crab, was controlled and mutated by Yog after Gezora died. Ganimes attacked Sergio Island, but he was destroyed by explosives. Yog however decided to utilize Ganimes again, and remade Ganimes from another giant lobster. He also created Kamoebas, and they attacked the island together. The two were temporarily freed from Yog's control, and they fought soon after. They fought on a volcano and Ganimes threw Kamoebas in, but he pulled Ganimes in with him.
