Lizardo [1] is a Japanese movie monster that became a ghost when toxic waste had bonded with old horror movies and turned the monsters into ghosts.

HistoryEdit

Lizardo is a famous movie monster from 1960s Japanese cinema. 12 total movies were made [2] and the character achieved a cult following decades later. As the Ghostbusters investigated a caustic chemical spill at Yamani Studios, Slimer witnessed the manifestation of Lizardo. [3]

Egon Spengler computed a new frequency required to destabilize Lizardo but revealed a whole gigawatt of auxiliary energy was needed to achieve this frequency and they only had 10 seconds to blast Lizardo. [4] [5] [6] With the Proton Packs drained from destroying Nori-ra and Kani, the Ghostbusters were powerless to stop Lizardo. Kenji suggested they power up by tapping into the Tokyo Television Tower. 400 feet in height, the Ghostbusters were relatively safe unless the 200 foot entity decided to climb up after them. [7]

While they waited for a full recharge, Lizardo began to wander. Kenji suggested using the air raid siren, as it mimicked the sound of a female lizard. [8] Lizardo was indeed attracted and stepped over Zojoji Temple, sparing it of any damage. Ecto-Ichi wasn't so lucky. Kenji was forced to use its microphone and stereo system to lure back Lizardo. Lizardo replied by stomping Ecto-Ichi. The Ghostbusters blasted Lizardo for eight seconds and were spared from frying their packs.

TriviaEdit

  • Lizardo is a parody of popular Japanese movie monster Godzilla.
  • 12 Lizardo movies were made, according to Kenji. After Nori-ra and Kani are destroyed, Ray thinks six or eight are left but Kenji chimes in 12 more are actually left. The titles revealed are:
    • "Lizardo Meets Nori-ra" [9]
    • "Lizardo and the Crab Monster from Space" [10]
    • "Lizardo Versus The Blue Beetle" [11]
    • An unnamed movie involving the Dreaded California Roll at the Tokyo Television Tower. [12]
  • In the March 1991 scripts, Lizard manifested before the Ghostbusters, Slimer, and Kenji arrived at Yamani. Chief Inspector Ogata called Egon on the Mini-Phone to alert him of Lizardo's rampage. [13] [14]
  • On page 13 of Ghostbusters Issue #3, Lizardo is referenced on a movie advertisement.
  • On page five of Ghostbusters Issue #6, several Lizardo dolls can be see in the bottom row of the Fantastic Land stand.
