No, and if I didn't value my eyesight so much, I'd bleach my eyes so I never had to see that poop again.

Ebirah and Ganimes are both equal chads.

Seriously though. I kinda like this guy. His design is weird and so is his costume. But somehow it all kinda fits. I'd love to see him and the other two Yog kaiju to show up again.

Ganime was a good monster for the film, but will always play second fiddle to Ebirah.

Ganime did try out for other movies, but Toho felt his attitude was too crabby.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

I do wonder why the Yog Trio were never reused in Godzilla films. It would have been an easy way to save money on new suits.

In an interview Nakano said no one at Toho was all that satisfied with those characters, that they were too cute/weren't scary enough. I'd imagine that's why they weren't seen again until much later on.

That's a bit surprising. Gezora atleast seemed to be popular.

I can see how Gezora and Kamoeba could be seen as "cute", but Ganime not so much. The crab was the scariest looking one, in my opinion.

I think that's why he's probably the least popular. I like Ganimes, but he looks too much like an ordinary crab. Aside from him being giant, he really doesn't stick out as much as the other two.
