First appearance

The Ballad of Gens Du Marais

The Swamp Beast (スワンプビースト,   Suwanpubīsuto?) is a mysterious slimy kaiju created by TriStar Pictures that first appeared in the Godzilla: The Series episode The Ballad of Gens Du Marais.

History

A giant monster of possibly mythical origins living in the swamps, the Swamp Beast was composed of both animal and vegetable matter, and could fire mud at its opponent, trapping it. The beast was possibly under the influence of an old cajun, and its attacks prompted H.E.A.T. to look into it. Zilla Junior fought the creature, but became trapped by the mud. Later it fought him again and escaped into the swamp, but Zilla was restrained from following by Nick.

It was possibly slain by the D.R.A.G.M.A.s when they overran the world in an alternate future. However, thanks to the effort of the H.E.A.T. team of destroying all of the D.R.A.G.M.A. younglings when they successfully return to the past, it was spared from this fate.

Abilities

The Swamp Beast is fully at home in aquatic habitats, and has a camouflaged body which disguises the creature while in the swamp. The bayou terror can unleash streams of sticky mud from the pores in its back, and also appears to have the power to simply disappear into nothingness. It also has the physical strength to stand its ground against Zilla Junior.

Trivia

  • The Swamp Beast bears similarities to the comic book characters Swamp Thing and Man Thing, possibly paying tribute to them, since both of them are made of slimy vegetable substances and live in swamps.
  • The Swamp Beast could possibly be a mutated surinam toad.
  • The Swamp Beast, along with Norzzug, may be one of the only two monsters in the series who have mystic origins.
