ATOM Kaiju File #20: Tyloton


Date Discovered: June 14th, 1954

Place of Origin: Typhon Island

Notable Stomping Grounds: Typhon Island

Height: 40 feet

Length: 250 feet

Biology: Tyloton is a member of the Long Tailed Sea Tyrant clade of the retrosaur family.  It is an active and ferocious predator that pursues prey as large or larger than itself, using its speed and shearing teeth to tear apart its victims.  It almost never comes up to dry land, as it is as awkward and sluggish on land as it is speedy and agile underwater.

Tyloton has the standard kaiju power set:

  • Super strength
  • An enhanced healing factor
  • Immunity to radiation

Personality: A vicious hunter, Tyloton is even more aggressive than its land dwelling retrosaur counterparts.  No other kaiju can match its speed in the water, which, when combined with the reptile’s overwhelming ferocity and bloodlust, makes it one of the most dangerous residents of Typhon Island.  Any body of water the kaiju resides it becomes a death trap, as few monsters are capable of enduring the sea tyrant’s quick and devastating assaults.

Tyloton knows it has complete mastery of its domain and revels in the power it holds over anything that enters its waters.  It goes to great lengths to hide its presence from others in hopes of enticing a gullible victim into getting close enough to attack, and hunts more for pleasure than out of hunger or territoriality.

Despite its skill in its element, Tyloton has suffered a few losses.  Most of those came on the rare occasion when the reptile was beached, as Tyloton is near helpless when  not in deep water.  Only once was it ever beaten in its element, and ironically it was by a slower and more peaceful amphibious monster: Metringar.  The long necked sea tyrant managed to withstand Tyloton’s initial assault and caught the swifter kaiju in its own jaws.  It then thrashed Tyloton with a few shakes of its mighty neck before tossing the slinky reptile out of the water and onto the beach for a brutal pummeling.  Tyloton remembers this defeat keenly, and has given Metringar a wide berth ever since.
