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.
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.
The Maneater is a figment of Ichiro's imagination.
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.

- The Maneater, like Gabara, could be completely imaginary and, like him, is a dream counterpart to one of Ichiro's real-life problems. In the Maneater's case, it's the robbers kidnapping him.
- He is one of several minor Showa monsters. The others are the Giant Lizard, the Giant Octopus, the Vampire Plant, Skeleturtle, the Giant Condor, and the Giant Sea Serpent. He has no corresponding toy, like the Giant Lizard and the Vampire Plant.
