30 Days, 30 Monsters day twenty
↳ Gamera

Some would say that Gamera is the K-Mart Godzilla. I would say fuck you.

Gamera, star of Daiei’s kaiju staple, is a giant turtle who spits fire and flies. Awesome. He’s a prehistoric monster who got by with eating jet fuel, which might explain why he shoots fire from his mouth. He is the last of his kind, as it goes with most kaiju, and is typically not a bad guy. One of Gamera’s monikers is “Friend of All Children.” What a sweet turtle. He was invented as a rival to the popularity of Godzilla and enjoyed great success in his own right.

Gamera came to my notice as a young child by way of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which lovingly lampooned a great number of films featuring the big guy.
