Shrewster was a nemesis mutation of Godzilla (Junior). The creature appeared in the Godzilla: The Series episode The Twister. The creature is a mutant shrew, created during a power-plant accident. He is extremely fast, one of the fastest kaiju on the planet, and is surrounded by a tornado. The Shrewster's primary form of transportation, defense, and attack all at the same time was a tornado that encased the Shrewster.

There is no scientific full explanation on how the Shrewster is able to create a tornado. The tornado made the Shrewster a force to be reckoned with, allowing it to wreak havoc to cities and monsters alike and provide a form of protection from weapons such as Godzilla's radioactive breath. When the tornado was dissipated, the Shrewster used his natural agility and ferocity to harass Godzilla until it was defeated by the same creature.

Film appearancesEdit

Godzilla: The Series (1998-2000)

The Twister (episode)Edit

During an accident at a power plant, a normal shrew was mutated into a gigantic beast encased in a mighty tornado. With H.E.A.T. chasing it after it almost killed them on the beach, the twister again confronted the team before Godzilla arrived and chased it off. Thanks to N.I.G.E.L.’s camera, the team was able to confirm that it was a creature before the creature bit the robot inside the tornado.

It then moved toward Manhattan where H.E.A.T. managed to insert a device that would destroy the tornado, but wasn’t able to activate. Godzilla was knocked out by the twister and Nick was sucked up. Inside the twister, Nick activated the device and the tornado was dissipated.

The Shrewster revealed itself and attacked, but was again confronted by Godzilla. The shrew was trapped inside a nearby concert stage by H.E.A.T. and the metal support beams melted by Godzilla. The Shrewster was then supposed to be taken to Monster Island, but instead would fall into the hands of Maximillian Spiel and be used as entertainment for the rich. Being forced to fight against a Giant Centipede, and probably others, the Shrewster was eventually freed, but if it was taken to Monster Island or not remains unknown.

The making of ShrewsterEdit

Conceptual artworkEdit

Artists Fil Barlow and Helen Meier were in charge of the conceptual artworks and designs of the creatures of Godzilla: The Series.


Pictures of the Shrewster


  • The Shrewster could be inspired by the creatures that starred in the film "The Killer Shrews," and also bears some resemblence to Taz the Tasmanian Devil from Looney Toons, due to the fact they both can create tornadoes that surround them.
