Reptilicus is the main antagonist of the 1961 Danish-American kaiju film Reptilicus.

Reptilicus resembles an enormous snake-like creature with short legs. Its head is dragon-like, with snake-like fangs and a forked tongue. It has gray scales that are loose and resemble feathers. It also has small wings.
