Date Discovered: October 23rd, 1956
Place of Origin: Mojave Desert
Notable Stomping Grounds: Mojave Desert, Typhon Island
Height: 100 feet
Length: 100 feet
Biology: Of the many kaiju that prowled the Mojave Desert, Lobjob is perhaps the most straightforward, being little more than a gargantuan crab. Of course, no kaiju can really be considered mundane, and Lobjob’s thick armor and powerful crushing claws make it just as dangerous as its stranger neighbors.
Lobjob sports the standard kaiju power set:
- Super strength
- An enhanced healing factor
- Immunity to radiation
Personality: A perpetual follower, Lobjob is a rather mild and confused creature when left to its own devices, lacking any internal ambitions to speak of. In the presence of other monsters, it immediately looks to others for answers, often glomming onto whichever monster seems the most powerful, ferocious, or otherwise charismatic and becoming a dependable and loyal lackey. Only severe mistreatment will drive the crab away from its perceived leader, and even then the crustacean will be quick to forgive if its boss shows a change of heart.
In combat, Lobjob is a brutal powerhouse, relying primarily on its enormous forearms to batter and crush its opponents. Despite its bulky and heavily armored body, Lobjob’s legs can carry it forward with surprising speed, giving the crab a mix of strength, durability, and swiftness to be a truly formidable foe. Of course, Lobjob’s determination to actually harm an opponent depends upon its leadership, and when left alone the crab’s only desire when faced with a fight is to make it out alive.
