Perhaps the most awesome sea monster ever, Kraken is actually bigger than Yankee Stadium! When seen from the distance, Kraken appears to be a deserted island sitting in the middle of the ocean! However, if you approach this "island" you will be met with a pair of great, glassy eyes and a set of sharp teeth - so large that they are often mistaken for icebergs! When this guy's hungry, he will feast upon a large ship. Using his tentacles to pluck men from the deck, Kraken will swallow these tasty morsels as an appetizer. Then the powerful monster will wrap his eight arms completely around the ship, pulling it to the depths of the sea and eating the remaining crew for his main course. (I wonder what he eats for desert?)
Kraken is a monster in the class "The Sea Monsters." It is monster #45. Kraken was one of the monsters who received a complete makeover for the 2006 remakes. A drastic change, Kraken is no longer an octopus, but a humanoid sea monster, somewhat resembling Gillman from The Creature From the Black Lagoon. This version owes some similarity to the Kraken that appears in Clash of the Titans, although the movie creature sported four arms, compared to the MIMP's two. The movie creature is referred to as a Kraken, but is more accurately a depiction of the Greek mythological monster the cetos or ketos. The name of this monster is the root of the modern cetacean, meaning a whale or its relative. The collectable card gave Kraken a total points value of 187.
Official Card Biography
Kraken is a sea monster of gargantuan size that can be found in the ocean of the coast of Norway and Iceland. Sailors who have seen him describe him as 'the size of a floating island' but the real danger is from the killer whirlpools he makes as he moves in the water near his ships.
