"Gurgle burgle!"
―The Swamp Creature

The Swamp Creature is a Monster Fighters minifigure released in 2012 and a major character of the theme. He appears in the set 9461 The Swamp Creature.


The Swamp Creature has green legs, printed with lime green scales. He has lime green hips also printed with scales. His green torso is printed with lime green scales near the bottom, and white scale outlines everywhere else. The back of his torso is printed much the same way, although his spine and ribs are partially visible. He has green arms, and lime green hands. He has a lime green face printed with very large yellow eyes, which take up most of his face, a small red mouth filled with white teeth, and a large black unibrow above his eyes. He wears a green mask which has large holes for his eyes, and spines on the left, right, and top.


The Swamp Creature comes from the Cold Sleep Swamp, in the marshlands of the Monster Realms. It is based off the Gill-man in the movies franchises and TV appearances from: Creature from the Black Lagoon, its two sequels, the The Monster Squad (which the theme Monster Fighters is heavily based off) and the gill-man appearance in The Munsters appearing in one episode as the Munster family's Uncle Gilbert, of which his name is a pun on gills that the creature has.
