Tsunora's name comes from the word tsuno (角, tsuno?), meaning horn, in reference to the horns it has at the top of its head, combined with the common kaiju suffix -ra.
Like the other original Godzilla Generations monsters, Tsunora's design is very simple. It is a light brown chibi creature with two horns atop its head and a pair of eyes with sclera, iris and pupils. It shares its basic 3D model with Debura.
