Shinomura Screenshot 001



Shinomura (シノムラ) is a radioactive parasitic colony kaiju created by Legendary Pictures that first appeared in the 2014 Godzilla graphic novel, Godzilla: Awakening. Shinomura is derived from the Japanese "shi no mure" (死の群れ), literally meaning "swarm of death".

Shinomura first appeared at least 250 million years ago, right before the Permian-Triassic extinction event happened. Shinomura fell into underground and it lay dormant for millions of years until the bombing of Hiroshima awoke it.

Note: The Godzilla: Awakening comic seemingly has Shinomura tank the Permian extinction impact asteroid. However, the images shown contradict themselves and thus the energy yield of the impact is unable to be quantified for Shinomura's durability.
