Kanegon is a Kaiju transformed by Kaneda Kaneo, a boy who is greedy for money, after he was swallowed by a cocoon that makes the sound of money when shaken. Kanegon’s head is in the shape of a coin purse, while his body is like a Martian. His eyes pop out to the direction of money, his mouth is a zipper of a wallet, his tail is rugged like Godzilla, his thorns on his head are there to make him look strong, and his body shines like coins. Since Kanegon was a human before the transformation, he speaks the same language (Japanese) as humans.
Just like its alias “Coin Monster” suggests, the Kaiju loves money and eats them to keep alive. What he likes the most, are the silver coins from the Olympics. On his left chest, there is a counter that shows how much money he ate, and the number decreases while he is not eating. If the count goes down to zero, Kanegon dies. The amount to keep him alive is 3520 yen per day.
