Gimlinopithecus are yellow sasquatch-like aliens from the planet Pattersonea.
Gimlinopithecus are bulky and ape-like in appearance. They have yellow and black fur, along with grey fingers and toes. They have 4 fingers. They also have two bolts on the side of their wrist and yellow horns. These aliens fall into sexual dimorphism:
Males tend to be yellow in appearance with black areas on their limbs and white lightning bolt markings bordering these areas.
Females look similar, but with higher proportion of white areas on their bodies, and are a paler shade of yellow. They also have a more feminine figure, with a skinnier waist and voluptuous breasts (presuming if their for nursing).
Due to the lethal zones on their home planet, Gimlinopithecus adopted a nomadic lifestyle.
Gimlinopithecus are polite, unless they are playing hockey.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Similar to Cerebrocrustaceans, Gimlinopithecus can release strong, yellow electrical charges from their hands, mouth and body, capable of shocking a creature much larger than them.
As shown in The Final Countdown, by covering objects with their electricity, Gimlinopithecus can telekinetically move them.
Gimlinopithecus are rather agile, and can run on all fours.
Their thick fur protects them if they wander too far into the frozen zone, while their electric field can temporarily shield them from the cosmic radiation if they find themselves in the irradiated areas.
Gimlinopithecus have enhanced strength.
- "Gimlinopithecus" is partially based on the last name of Robert "Bob" Gimlin, who, along Roger Patterson, filmed a apparent Bigfoot in a 1967 film known as Patterson-Gimlin film.
- "Gimlinopithecus" is also based on Gigantopithecus, a genus of large extinct apes that many cryptozoologists believe are the ancestors of Bigfoot, the Yeti, and other similar cryptids.
