Mammoth Flower (マンモスフラワー Manmosu Furawā) is an ancient plant species that once flourished since before the birth of Yokai and reached its peak flourishing when Yokai was born.

Appearance

Mammoth Flowers are titanic plants with wide stems and large heads that have long tendrils ending with wide cuts and small holes. The top of the heads are similar to the end of the tendrils, being messy with wide cuts.

In the 1971 anime, Mammoth Flowers are navy blue and normally have four to five tendrils. At the top of their large heads are small patches of large green leaves and usually one small pink flower, though some have two.

In the 1996 anime, a Mammoth Flower first appears to be red, due to trying to find a proper place to bloom. The tendrils end with yellow cuts and small holes and the tops are likewise similar. When it finds a place to bloom, it turns green and the tendrils furl into the top of the head. When it blooms, the head opens up to a large flower with red petals and yellow stamen. If the seed of a Mammoth Flower is eaten, then it merges with its host, capable of revealing their face on the sides of its head. After blooming, it separates with its host.

Legend

The Mammoth Flower may have been based on the plant kaiju Juran that appeared in the episode of Mammoth Flower of the Ultra Q series, an ancient plant that was released after a powerful earthquake hit Japan. The plant kaiju may have also inspired the Legion Plant from Gamera 2: Attack of Legion, a similar giant flower with a symbiotic relationship with the Legion.
