31 Monstrous Failures #28: Zigra

October 28th, 2011

Japan’s terrible terrapin Gamera was the star of seven movies in seven years. You may be surprised to learn that they were not very good.

The last and least of his aberrant adversaries was a silver fish from beyond the stars, a finned freak known as…


He came to Earth to put human beings on his surf n’ turf platter, but he was literally defeated by a well-thrown boulder (seen above). Lodged onto Zigra’s spiky nose, the extra weight pinned him to the beach. Gamera picked up another rock to deliver the coup de grace, and…

…used Zigra’s fins as a xylophone. To play his own theme song.

If there is a sadder way to be defeated by a fire-breathing turtle, I have yet to hear of it.
