Dark Legacy: Gojirakaba by painted-wolfs-den Dark Legacy: Gojirakaba by painted-wolfs-den
Of all the scary animals out there one of the most dangerous but under appreciated, is the Hippo.

Hippos kill more people every year than sharks. They are huge, foul tempered and highly territorial.

Now mix that with Godzilla and you have a kaiju that would at first seem a little silly but turn out to be a brutal bad-ass.

Exposed to Godzilla DNA this unfortunate bull hippo has been mutated into a terrifying hybrid. Now he lurks in the depths attacking anything that dares to cross unknowing into his territory.

Gojirakaba was created by ProtanaArchives94 and based on the origin story for my OC kaiju Irkuiem.

The original Gojirakaba can be found here: [link]

Hmm, I had been kind of thinking that a hippo would work for a monster because of everything you mentioned, but I'll admit I really didn't have any idea how to make it work. This makes for an interesting take.

Thanks.

I think if you look at a hippo skull you get all kinds of visions of evil. They are fantastic.

Irkuiem is a big lovable fuzz-ball in comparison.
