Lobzilla is a strange crustacean, elephant-like monster similar to Ebifryer that appears in Kirby 3D.

Character History

He is sent by Nightmare Enterprises to King Dedede to defeat Kirby. Dedede was a bit confuse at first when he sees how pitiful and weak it looks. But Lobzilla soon lets loose his power in front of him and Escargoon and escapes.

He is next seen backed against the Cappy Town circle tree by Chef Kawasaki, who intends to cook him, only to blast him with his freezing-cold breath. Next, he arrives at the pond Tuff and the Cappy kids are playing in and catching lobsters in and attacks them too. The next time he is seen is when Dedede and Escargoon lure Kirby to him. Lobzilla pushes Kirby around a bit before ramming into one of the castle pillars. This attack backfires, and causes an avalanche which crushes him (much to Dedede's agitation) while Kirby makes it out unharmed.

Then suddenly, just when everyone thinks the monster is down for the count, Lobzilla reveals his true form: a titanic and terrifying shimp, elephant-like dragon beast. Lobzilla then starts to chase after and attack him again, but Tiff calls the Warp Star and Kirby gets on it. Still, even with the Warp Star's help, Kirby is having problems with the crustacean. Even Fire Kirby had problems with him, but Meta Knight's quick thinking allows Tiff to tell Kirby to suck up the monster's breath and transform into Kabuki Kirby. Kabuki Kirby is then easily able to mop the floor with Lobzilla, fooling him by imitating a real-life Kabuki fighter before blasting a laser from his forehead into the monster's mouth, which causes his body to inflate and completely immobilizing him. Kirby finishes off and destroys him with his rod. The monster's explosion rains down many small shrimps for Kirby, Kawasaki, and even the King and Escargoon to enjoy.

Lobzilla's true form

Physical Appearance

First Form

Lobzilla is a cross between an elephant and a shrimp. At first, he appears a small seahorse-like shrimp with buggy eyes, an elephantesque trunk with small, short fang-like tusks, small legs, and a yellow underbelly.

Second Form

But, when he gets angry, he grows in size and shows his true form, when enlarged, while he retains some his elephant appearance, he gets a more monstrous, Lobster-es, dragon-like appearance. His legs grow longer, his tail becomes longer as does his trunk, his tusks are longer and sharper, his eyes become more glaring and demonic as well as pupilless, and he gains two large hair-like antennae on the sides of his head. In addition, his underbelly also becomes more pale, and he gains several fangs in his mouth and he gets a dark red color.

Powers and Ability's

First Form

Despite Lobzilla's cute appearance, he displays a wide arsenal of ability's that are far stronger then the other monsters Kirby fought before hand, in his first form, Lobzilla has the ability to blow an ice breath from his trunk, they are cold enough to freeze anyone in contact. His eyes can also turn red and is able to detect his target by using a series of crosshairs, suggesting he may be robotic. Despite his small size, he also has great physical strength and can even knock down pillars with ease, he also displays clawed pincers for combat.

Second Form

In his second form, he can fly in the air and is so big that he can smash through anything within the castle. He is also faster, being able to catch up the Kirby even when he is on his Warp Star. He retains his ice breath ability, the difference being that it is now blown from his mouth rather than his trunk and is far stronger, being able to outmatch Fire Kirby's Fire Breath, in addition, within his icy blast are bacteria-like shrimp particles. These shrimp can pull on any of the body parts of the opponents and can attach themselves to hold down the target for Lobzilla to make clean strikes, he also gets an increases in strength, being able to take out parts of Dedede's castle with ease, he retains his clawed pincers for bashing his enemys with, Lobzilla is one of the strongest monsters to appear in the series (beating only by WolfWrath and of course the final monster of the series Heavy Lobster), being able to out match Fire Kirby with ease.
