Gimlinopithecus are a yeti-like species from the planet Pattersonea.

Appearance

Gimlinopithecus are large, muscular, furry, yeti-like creatures. They have bolts on different parts of their body, and so far they have been on their wrists and neck. Gimlinopithecus faces are grey.

Male Gimlinopithecus tend to have yellow fur, with black fur on their limbs and white fur bordering these areas. Gimlinopithecus from Dimension 23 have blue fur instead of black and pale blue instead of white.

Female Gimlinopithecus have a higher proportion of white fur on their body, and are a paler shade of yellow and don't have black fur. They also have a more feminine figure.

History

Due to the lethal zones on their home planet, Gimlinopithecus adopted a nomadic lifestyle.

Powers and Abilities

Gimlinopithecus have the ability to release strong, yellow electrical charges from any of the bolts on their bodies. They are even able to shoot electricity from their mouths.[1]

By covering objects with their electricity, Gimlinopithecus can telekinetically move them.[2]

Gimlinopithecus are more agile than they look, as Shocksquatch could jump over a Buglizard easily.[3]

Gimlinopithecus can generate an electric force field that can shoot beams of electricity in multiple directions[4] and temporarily shield themselves against cosmic radiation.[OV Brief 1]

Gimlinopithecus can charge their impacts and collisions with electricity to enhance it.[5] They can also move electricity along a surface to either cover an object or shock htheir target, as demonstrated by Crashocker.[6]

Gimlinopithecus can infuse their electricity with other beings, such as an Arburian Pelarota, to empower them.[7]

Gimlinopithecus are physically strong, as shown when Shocksquatch punched Buglizard until the ground fell apart, causing them to fall through into the subway.[3]

Gimlinopithecus have a degree of enhanced durability, being able to withstand being flicked off a Way Bad.[8] They are also immune to freezing climates thanks to their thick fur.[OV Brief 1]

Gimlinopithecus have enhanced speed and dexterity, as they can run on all fours.[9]

Weaknesses

Gimlinopithecus are helpless while being insulated, such as when they are ensnared by an Evolved Arachnichimp's webs.[10]

Gimlinopithecus are vulnerable to magic, as shown when Shocksquatch was teleported by one of Charmcaster's spells.[11]

Gimlinopithecus are weak against enemies who can drain electricity, such as Phil.[12]

Gimlinopithecus can be harmed by their own electricity if redirected and shot back at them.[11]

Even though they can resist both freezing climates and cosmic radiation, these can still be lethal to Gimlinopithecus after a certain period of time.[OV Brief 1]

Etymology

"Gimlinopithecus" is partially based on the last name of Robert "Bob" Gimlin, who, along Roger Patterson, filmed a supposed Bigfoot in a 1967 film known as Patterson-Gimlin film. 

"Gimlinopithecus" is also based on Gigantopithecus, a genus of large extinct apes that many cryptozoologists believe are the ancestors of Bigfoot, the Yeti, and other similar cryptids.
