Top Speed (Flight): Mach 3.5
Eyesight: Above average eyesight. Furthermore, Heisei Gamera's eyesight increased as well as his plasma blast accuracy.
Mouth: "Plasma Blast" - Fired from Gamera's mouth is the super-energy discharge in which rapid ionization is generated and condensed, when pure oxygen unites with the plasma energy stored in the inside of the body a fireball erupts from Gamera's mouth.
Hand: Strength - Powerful enough to mangle steel and shatter rock. Gamera may also attack with sharp nails and claws. While Gamera's hands and feet may contain devastating power, they are often used to protect man.
Internal Combustion: Inside Gamera's body, thermal energy can be fired much like a ball of flame, a nuclear fuel, and high-voltage current is charged and stored in his plasma energy - like a thermal energy conversion furnace in his living body. Not only used for attacking opponents, but also for flight.
Leg: One kick can destroy a skyscraper. Gamera retracts his legs in order to ignite his plasma energy and fly.
Arm: As are his legs, his arms are retractable and the plasma's ingition allows him flight.
Elbow: A sharp bone has developed at Gamera's elbow, this can seriously injur enemies in the case of a dogfight.
Shell: So tough that the shock of nuclear weapons is also borne.
Tail: Gamera's strong tail can serve as a defensive weapon, being used as a whip against opponenets. The tail also serves as a support for his massive frame.

Ultimate Plasma Attack: In 1996, Gamera used a great power to defeat the menace from space Legion. He called out and absorbed energy from the Earth itself (beleived to be Mana). His shell opened from the front and a torrential amount of energy (comparable to a nuclear blast) was unleashed upon Legion.

**In 1999, Gamera exhibited new fighting techniques in addition to his previously witnessed abilities.
Super-Blaze Fireball: During the battle in Shibuya, Gamera's Plasma blasts were executed with deadly speed and force. He was able to rapidly fire three fireballs in a row to annihilate the Gyaos.
Banishing Sword/Fist: After destroying his own arm to free himself from Iris' hold, Gamera immediately finds himself under attack from energy beams that had been charging at the end of Iris' tentacles. Taking the brunt of the blow with his stump, Gamera takes the energy and forms a burning hand which he then used to destroy Iris.
Shell Cutter Attack: During the dogfight over Kinki, Gamera used his jets to rapidly spin his shell, rushing Iris.

10. Gamera 2: Attack of the Legion (1996)
Gamera (Heisei)

Legion Mother
Height: 140 meters
Length: 160 meters
Weight: 600 tons
Flight Speed: Mach 1
Burrowing Speed: 50km/h
Origin: Unknown, but it is known that the Legion species traveled to Earth on what appeared to be a comet which crash-landed near Sapporo. It is speculated that the Legion species utilizes three separate entities to thrive and inhabit other worlds: the Mother/Queen Legion (shown here), the Soldier Legion and the Flower (see below) which is essentially used as a launch system to carry the next generation to another planet.

Legion Soldier
Height: 3 meters
Weight: 300 kilgorams
Origin: As with the Mother Legion, the true origin of the species is unknown.
Eye/Vision: As with the mother, soldiers can also sense electro-magnetic activity. As a soldier, it seems to be their duty to either feed on or destroy electro-magnetic acitivity - it was never fully discovered what connection the Legion species and electro-magnetism shared.
Vocalizations: Soldiers respond to the mother's calls & commands - and in return act as a collective. They are able to call other soldiers to their assistance.
Appendages: Legion Soldiers' appendages can be used as weapons, but in all likelihood, they are simply tools of movement. It should be noted that the appendages can aid the soldiers climb ..
Exoskeleton: Made of a hard siliconelike resin (but less durable than the mother's), Legion exo-skeletons work as an insulator.
Unknown: Although it was never fully determined what these soldiers are capable of, it was quite obvious the damage that they infliceted. Humans with glasses, cel phone and radio systems were killed or stripped of the offensive matrerial. The soldiers also attacked Gamera, swarming him. It appeared that they were causing some damage; there is no real evidence gathered.

Hyper Gyaos

Enemy of the North, a turtle-like Guardian named Genbu, who she associates with Gamera.
Other: Found in the ancient cave of Nara's old family, Yamanaka, Iris was hatched from an egg-like object and cared for by Ayana. Although it is theorized that Iris is a subspecies of Gyaos, this self-evolution theory was never proven. Iris attempted to merge with Ayana twice, possibly to continue its own evolution.
