Toku Tuesday #25 – The Hunt for American Toku, Part VIII

One new week. One new Tuesday. One new Toku Tuesday – Volume 2 Issue 9:

The first stop on our journey through American tokusatsu introduced us all to the Hish (or the Yautja), aka the Predators. This week, we take a quick look at the game of choice for the Predators – Xenomorphs…


Xenomorph from Alien franchise

To the best of knowledge, the Govenator, Danny Glover, and Bruce Wayne are the only humans that have gone toe-to-toe with a Predator and came away (alive) the winner. However, it seems the Xenomorphs are one the few – maybe the only – creatures in the  universe that can make a Predator think twice about stepping into battle. They get their name from the fact that they assimilate the DNA of the harvested victims they use to spawn. These creatures are extremely hardy and versatile and could be the pinnacle of natural evolution simply by virtue of the fact that they can adapt to nearly environment within a single generation. From Facehugger to Queen, these aliens are always a threat and should be treated as public enemy number one when combined with the presence of other deadly visitors – namely Predators.

With four main franchise installments and the two Aliens vs Predator films, the Xenomorphs have inscribed themselves in the public mainstream as the universes scariest serial rapists. Well, that is what they do…

I’ll leave you with yet another Awesome Rap from DJ Mayhem and MC Mouthmaster Murf. Until next time.


I'm an otaku, avid gamer, and electronic "musician." I'm forever indulging in the amazingness that is Japanese tokusatsu.
