    Hello everyone! I'm new here, but I've been lurking for some time, and I love the kaiju that are posted here! So, I want you all to meet my own monster, Umibozu

    JULY 27TH UPDATE, LOOK BELOW

    umibozu2.png
    umibozu.png In the deepest parts of Earth's oceans, where not even a tiny glimmer of light ever managed to shine, lives the last of the ancient species. A manmal of truly monstrous size, preying on the biggest aquatic animals known to man. It's body structure vaguely resembles a human in an eerie way, showing possibly a different path that evolution took millions of years ago. This gargantuan creature would take long slow walks on the ocean floor, in search for food, loving the whale meat the most. However, humans in their greed started to take more and more from the sea, robbing this leviathan of its food. Once, many years ago, when it noticed that its usual prey was gone, the creature slowly started to reach the surface, almost like a person would climb a mountain. During the night, as it had yet to get used to the sunlight, the monster noticed something called boats that smelled like his prey, or rather, like its blood. With a roar that would sillience even thunder, making the sea itself tremble with fear, the creature attacked the thieves, killing all but one man. The sole survivor would later name the creature Umibozu, and legends about the gargatuan monster were born. Of course, as time passed, and with only one witness, people started to forget about the creature, soon calling it only a mere myth, a story for children, fiction. People would laugh at anymore even mentioning a "sea monster" as they would go whaling. The human greed started to rob Umibozu of its food once again, this time in the 21th century, and the ancient behemoth would show its rage once more...
    Height: 120m
    Weight: 70 000 tons
    Gender: Male
    Powers:
    Apedt Swimmer- Umibozu can swim and even breathe underwater, making it able for him to live on the land as well as on the ocean floor.
    Bulk- He is fairly bulky, with his durable body being able to withstand the strongest pressure on the bottom of the sea without any problems.
    Powerful Arms- Umibozu's arms are long and powerful, as he is able to send an enemy of his own size flying with a swing, or crush them with a hammer like blow.
    Eye Flash- The creature is able to produce light in order to to see what's on the deepest and darkest parts of his territory. A flash from his eyes would be more than enough to temporarly blind an enemy.
    Hellish Voice- Umibozu stays most of the time sillient and calm, but if something should anger him enough, he would roar, creating a powerful shockwave, capable of bringing down enemies of similar size.
    Napalm Spit- The creature has two organs with chemicals located in its neck. Umibozu can shoot both of chemicals out of his mouth with extremely high pressure, and when they meet, a reaction creates a highlu poisonous napalm like substance.
    Brute- When fighting a creature as big as him, Umibozu will hardly ever act defensively, and will rather try to beat his foe into a bloody pulp with hammer like strikes. He almost never flinches thanks to his bulk, however his all out aggresive style can be a double edged sword.
    Protective "Hairs"- What's covering his body isn't any type of tentacle, it's actually something resembling hairs, as it is made from the same material. It protects Umibozu from attacks and temperature change.
    Weakness- Umibozu loves water, and hates fire. Heat based attacks anger him and deal great damage, as dehydration would mean doom to this behemoth.

    Other than the vague manshape and face with only eyes, these guys are very different. This one is furry, the other is more weedy. Could they both be categorized as antropomorphic kaiju... maybe. But to call them the same is kinda meh. Plus Oberon has a friggin sword(which I disapprove of heavily). I like this guy(though I think he should be brought down a peg in weight).

    Thank you all for feedback ^^

    More info:
    Grappling- Umibozu has a long reach and can grab his foe from a bit a longer distance than a common kaiju can. He will slam his enemy into the ground or throw them far away, showing his brute strength.
    Energy attacks- Since he is a "natural", "ancient" monster, I don't want him to have lazers out of nowhere, so I think with his strong lungs, he could create a bomb like attack with a big shockwave as he would roar, which wouldn't be like a continous beam but have a strength of one fully charged one upon impact.

    Inspiration- As funny as it may sound, Rodan was the inspiration for this monster. This year was the first time I watched the full movie, Rodan from 1956, and I fell in love with the theme this movie had- the sky. I could feel the unsettling pressence of a huge flying monster that would attack humanity, watching them from the sky. So, I wanted to do something similar, with a complete opposite in terms of theme, the depths. We didn't explore the ocean completly, and I really wanted to make something bizzare and scary, as sometimes I'd be creeped out by some fish found in such depths lol.

    Also Ogre, I might change his weight, as the numbers here don't matter THAT much to me. I just wanted his to be a sort of heavy hitter, a tank, someone a bit heavier than an usual kaiju.

    Thank you all for more feedback. Here is something for the people who find Umibozu creepy: chibi.png

    Also, I wanted to ask....how does sponsoring a monster work? I read the sticky topic on this forum, but.....I don't exactly get it I'm afraid.....Can someone explain it to me? How do I get my monster sponsored?

    Well, basically you just say that the monster is up for sponsorship. Then you should start advertising him, putting him in your signature and mentioning him in the shoutbox from time to time, to give him some more popularity. (Just don't cram him in everyone faces, if you know what I mean. It might annoy some people)

    Alright guys, thank you very much for the tip ^^

    One last thing, let's say my monster is fairly popular and it's time to vote, how does that work and who votes?
