'''''Reptilicus''''' is a 1961 Danish {{Kaiju}} movie, in the vein of ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}''.

It is notable for being the first and only Danish Kaiju film.

Had a short lived adaptation from CharltonComics, but because they bought the film rights from the American distributor and not the Danish creators, they had to drop the title after issue 2. The story continued, however as ''Reptisaurus''.


* AntagonistTitle
* [[CoversAlwaysLie Movie Posters Always Lie]]: The poster art for this movie showed a gigantic draconic monster ripping San Francisco apart, destroying the Golden Gate Bridge, and laying waste to US Navy ships. This was more exciting than anything in the actual movie itself.
* FromASingleCell: The whole of Reptilicus regenerates from its tail.
* HealingFactor. Ridiculous amounts of it. Not quite as bad as [[Anime/DragonBallZ Cell]] but close.
* HollywoodAcid: The monster's main weapon, in the U.S. cut, aside from being a giant lizard of doom.
* LargeHam: Mikkelson
* {{Novelization}}: Written by Dean Owen, who also did the novelization for ''{{Film/Konga}}''. Owen adds in numerous sex scenes between the characters to spice things up.
* NeverRecycleYourSchemes: The army learns in their first battle that Reptilicus is pretty vulnerable to fire. Yet in their second attack, they find excuses not to use flamethrowers again.
* PsychoElectricEel: Played for laughs.
* SameLanguageDub: The film was shot with the cast phonetically speaking their lines in English to make it easier to sell in America, but the cast's thick accents forced its American distributors to re-dub the entire film.
* TechnicolorScience: That's a rather interesting laboratory in the Akvarium.
* TheEndOrIsIt: Yay! The army [[spoiler: made Reptilicus swallow a poison missile]], and now it's dead! Denmark can now go back to normal life! [[spoiler: Except that the piece of Reptilicus severed by a depth charge is now twitching...]]
