The Maneater (人喰い植物,   Hitokui shokubutsu?, lit. Flesh-Eating Plant) is a humanoid plant kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 1969 Godzilla film, All Monsters Attack.


Name

The Maneater's Japanese name, Hitokui shokubutsu, is literally "flesh-eating plant," referencing how it grabbed Ichiro Miki and tried to eat him.

Appearance

The Maneater is very humanoid, having the same body shape of a human and having arms and legs. Unlike humans, however, the Maneater's body is made out of green leaves, letting it blend with the jungle environment of Monster Island.

Personality

The Maneater doesn't have a true personality, though it seems to instinctively grab prey that walks in front of it and try to eat them.

Origins

The Maneater is a figment of Ichiro's imagination.

History

All Monsters Attack

The Maneater appears when Ichiro Miki walks in front of it, distracted by watching Minilla trying to fire atomic breath in front of Godzilla but failing. The Maneater sneakily grabs Ichiro, puts him up to his body, and covers his mouth so he can't talk. Ichiro then wakes up from his dream and realizes that he was being kidnapped by the robbers who were hiding out on the same place he was in.
