Ebirah 2Many people seem to confuse what Ebirah is. He's been called a shrimp, a crab, and a lobster. Heck, I betcha' he's even been called a crayfish. So what is he? Well, the name "Ebirah" comes from the Japanese word ebi, which means shrimp. In the movie Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster, he's called a "mammoth lobster," at least in the dubbed version (I'm guessing he's a shrimp in the Japanese version, but don't take my word for it). I like to call him a lobster, just because I like lobsters, but I don't like to eat them. I feel guilty every time I have to put a lobster in a pot. Oh, who cares. Anyway, Ebirah lived off the island of Letchi, where the Red Bamboo orginization were planning to conquer the world with nuclear weapons. The Red Bamboo took slaves from Infant Island, the island where Mothra and her people lived. The slaves from Infant Island were forced to make a yellow liquid from a certain fruit, when poured from a ship, keeps Ebirah from attacking it. Nita, one of the main characters in Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster, helped the slaves from Infant Island make a phony batch of the yellow liquid. While evacuating the island, the Red Bamboo people took the phony batch, only to be killed by Ebirah. Godzilla saw Ebirah, and ripped both of Ebirah's claws out during the final battle. Ebirah swam away, and the Infant Island slaves and the main characters of Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster were safely transported back home by Mothra.
