The Gigantopithecus is a giant ape that appeared in the 2005 movie called King of the Lost World. It is estimated to be 9.8 feet high and has an interest in attacking intruders as it threw a flight attendant in the beginning of the movie. It eventually got intimidated when a plane chases it with a torch. The Gigantopithecus was killed when a nuclear bomb was detonated in the crashed airplane.

History Edit

After the crash of a plane on his island, King of the Lost World encounters a flight attendant and devours her.

Much later, the giant ape reappears during the sacrificial ceremony and fights against The Lost World´s Dragon. He kills many of them and also crushes some persons. He then attacks the protagonists but two military jets arrive and distract him, however they both eventually crash. Afterwards, he confronts again The Lost World's Dragons and uses another crashed plane to hit them, but one of the protagonists succeeds to detonate a nuclear bomb left inside, killing the ape.
