Nidoking has enjoyed also sporadic appearances in a fifty-years-old franchise focused around a particularly large and destructive [[{{Godzilla}} Tyranitar]][[superscript:‹[[FanonPokedex/{{Larvitar}} #248]]§Hazards›]]. In a [[http://godzilla.wikia.com/wiki/Destroy_All_Monsters cult crossover of the franchise]], a Nidoking is awakened from his slumber by transidereal Latias who psychically enslave Poison-type monsters to destroy mankind. Nidoking is forced to thrash the nearby human industries that the Latias were targetting, and after freed from the mental control is too exhausted and confused to do anything more than watch the final battle from afar. Another movie from the franchise had Nidoking slated to appear and destroy a world-renowned cultural landmark by burrowing and using Earthquake, but in the final product he had to be switched out for an Aggron.

'''Nidorina and Nidorino''' are the adult forms; they share the same overall physiology traits of their younger forms [[OnlyMoreSo but augmented and specialized for battle]], such as larger general builds and [[SpikesOfDoom larger protective spikes]]. The short fur of the younger morph collapses back unto the skin to form strands of quills, while the skin itself is replaced at some points by darkened scales that give both forms a distinct patched pattern. The female grows extra rear spikes that protect her hindside, and her ears become rounder and easier to turn around to inspect the surrounding area.

In contrast, Nidorino will pack and take part in [[BattleRoyale Battle Royales]] that start as displays of skill (mostly horn fencing and digging) and battle ability and end as wild beatings as the females gather around to observe. In all cases it is the female who will pick a male of her choosing, by waiting until her mark is tired after surviving many battles; she will then approach and [[SlapSlapKiss beat him into submission]], leading him away and [[StalkerWithATestTube leaving him little to no option]] to comply to her desires in a round of final tests which most usualy involve showing of their prowess in digging a new den, and sometimes in right out ''forcibly cleansing an occupied one''.

It is revealing of the Royal Evolutions's battle prowess that Giovanni Terremoto, famed leader of a Ground-type Gym in the region of Kanto before his fall as the leader of FanonPokedex/TeamRocket, dedicated two chapters to these final forms in his only known written work, "''[[PokemonSpecial Mysteries of the Earth]]''"; the first chapter goes into great detail on how to train both forms as bodyguards, whereas the contents of the second chapter are unknown -- they are believed to be dangerous to social order if read and executed by anyone with unscrupulous goals, and as such have been gradually [[OrwellianRetcon expunged from any official record]].

Two superior evolutions exist, called '''Nidoqueen and Nidoking'''; these are notoriously different from their preevolutions, for reasons yet to be fully understood, in such fundamental aspects as being bipedal instead of quadrupedal and replacing all the soft skin by scales, looking more similar in their body build to high Ground-type morphs such as [[{{FanonPokedex/Aron}} Aggron]][[‹sup:§Physical Description›]]. The section titled "Royal Evolutions" further expands on them.

Nidoran are dangerous creatures for several reasons, only starting with their venomous bodies which thanks to a substance continuously produced gradually acquire poisonous traits during their lifetime. The poison itself is produced by intermuscular glands in the underskin of a Nidoran, located across the belly and underside as well as all four legs and covered by highly sensitive pressure receptors. The glands produce a substance that corrupts the transportation of enzymes in the prey organism or in an eventual predator, [[InsistentTerminology greatly felling]] their metabolism; they also produce a crystalline substance sensitive to heat in which the actual venom is encased.

When exposed to the radiation of a Moon Stone, a Nidorina or Nidorino will undergo an {{egregious}} process of evolution -- leading to the stages that have been named Nidoqueen and Nidoking. These forms are largely different to their pre-evolutions. They are bipedals whose body structure is closer to that of highly evolved dinosaur-like evolved Pokémon such as Aggron. The short fur that covered their bodies is replaced by layers of tinted, rough scale plates that alongside with the harder spikes and the thickness of their legs and arms, reveal a newfound, tremendous physical strength. Their bellies and chest are covered by scales as well, but these are larger, somewhat translucid and arranged in such a manner that they can overlap with each other when the Pokémon needs to stretch or curl.

The power that Nidoqueen and Nidoking gain in this stage is incredible and they are not afraid to show it, which has led to them earning something of a reputation. Tales of a Nidoqueen tackling and turning a military truck upside down or a Nidoking swinging his tail and tearing all trees ten meters around him from their roots are not only unheard of, but also relatively [[AllMythsAreTrue close to the truth]].

For a yet unknown reason, the radiation of the Moon Stone triggers an additional process that modifies the microstructure of Nidoqueen's and Nidoking's skeleton and muscle tissue. This grants their bodies with roughness akin to that of Ground-type Pokémon at the cost of permeability, and for all intents and purposes Nidoqueen and Nidoking are classified as [=Poison/Ground=] type Pokémon.

!! Habitat

Nidoran can be found roaming in the borderline and outer area of the larger grasslands. Small groups of individuals roam around a well-protected and hidden core or colony, consisting of as many as four hundred ''adults'' taking care of about thrice the amount of cubs, in a structure that can only be discovered by deep examination of the forest and mountain ecosystems adjacent to the grasslands.

!! Diet

The members of the Nidoran faily are primarily herbivorous, gathering in large groups to eat grass and collect fruit fallen from trees, as well as berries. Given their fighting tendencies this fact proves to be surprising for inexperienced trainers. In contrast, they usually walk into rivers to drink alone, or accompanied by their single partner in the case of the adult morphs. They also welcome most wheat and plant-based food that humans provide for them, although they are for the most part picky enough to demand "collecting" that food by themselves.

A Trainer wanting to keep their Nidorina or Nidorino stimulated will usually hide packed balls of food near the plants or trees of the house, this so long as there are no {{FanonPokedex/Zigzagoon}}[[superscript:‹§Diet›]] living in-house as well.

The adult forms are known to adapt their diet somewhat to eat what they kill, which is {{FanonPokedex/Rattata}} and some overconfident {{FanonPokedex/Spearow}} or {{FanonPokedex/Taillow}} who decided to divebomb ignoring the rows of spikes -- with which Skarmory won't have trouble. This is however fairly uncommon and for the most part it only happens when the winter or the breeding season coincide with times of particular scarcity.

All basic forms live together in the core colony under their parents's watch and venture to the outside in sibling groups or accompanied by a watching pair. Young males are usually left to organize themselves on their own, while females band together and organize groups led by experienced females.

Shortly after evolving into Nidorino, the males will start to stick together in pairs, usually made of siblings, and secure a path partially going around the colony core, close to rocks or trees that they set up as their watchspot. The females on the other hand stick together in clusters, sharing custody (but not feeding) of each other's offspring. Such pairs and clusters watch each other's backs and are always available for the times when a younger form starts crying from danger and calling for family, which usually happens when a playful Nidoran decides to poke more than they can chew.

The exact place of wild Nidoqueen and Nidoking pairs in a colony is very poorly understood to this date. Each colony has two or three Nidoqueen--Nidoking couples freely roaming far from the core, but they don't seem to usually participate in social activities or compete against each other nor the cabal Nidorina for any sort of position or power. The only times they are particularly active is right before the mating period of the species, where the couples perform complicated rituals under watch of the younger morphs, most usually Nidorina. The purpose of those rituals is not fully understood but they seem to be a demonstration that allows the royal forms to [[MentorArchetype pass down the techniques and metrics]] than the younger forms will require to adequately evaluate, select and secure a mate.

The same media that has assigned them those idyllic roles for marketing purposes [[AvertedTrope disturbingly]] [[DoNotDoThisCoolThing omits]] their [[KillerRabbit destructive tendencies]] against anything that threatens the objects of their "love", which may cause more than a bit of danger for trainers who idealize their relationship with Nidoran under their charge, or worse for trainers meeting this species in the wild (see "Hazards"). During the time the campaigns for safe scouting reached their peak, the movie industry still took the issue lightly-- a cult classic around that time featured a medieval tale with a subplot about a [[MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail Nidoran believed to be a murderous monster]], which is proven in flesh by the legion sent to kill it.

During the time the campaigns for safe scouting reached their peak, the movie industry still took the issue lightly-- a cult classic around that time featured a medieval tale with a subplot about a [[MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail Nidoran believed to be a murderous monster]], which is proven in flesh by the legion sent to kill it.

In contrast, Nidorino will pack and take part in [[BattleRoyaleWithCheese Battle Royales]] that start as displays of skill (mostly horn fencing and digging) and battle ability and end as wild beatings as the females gather around to observe. In all cases it is the female who will pick a male of her choosing, by waiting until her mark is tired after surviving many battles; she will then approach and [[SlapSlapKiss beat him into submission]], leading him away and [[StalkerWithATestTube leaving him little to no option]] to comply to her desires in a round of final tests which most usualy involve showing of their prowess in digging a new den, and sometimes in right out ''forcibly cleansing an occupied one''.

A Nidoran's horn is no less worrisome than the large amount of spikes in its body. All forms will ram with incredible force, although it is the male who presents the most danger due to the fact that [[{{Gorn}} he will gleefully swing his head so that the horn pierces more and]] ''[[{{Gorn}} more]]'' [[{{Gorn}} organs]] [[BeyondTheImpossible while more and]] ''[[BeyondTheImpossible MORE]]'' [[BeyondTheImpossible venom is being poured]] into the victim's body. Adding to the damage from direct attack, all forms are capable of striking successively and with good and even increading precision. All this justifies why an adult Nido's horn must be blunted for it to be accepted in official competitions (see notes below on Nidoking, however, unless you enjoy the idea of [[NightmareFuel having its horn rammed through your chest]]).
