Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Etymology

"Merg Arita" is a pun on "margarita". "Merg" (メルグ Merugu) is also a syllable rearrangement of the Japanese word for "gourmet" (グルメ Gurume). "Ari" in his name comes from the Japanese word for "ant" ( Ari), referencing his anteater motif.

Notes

  • Animal Theme: Giant Anteater & an ant
  • Possible Prehistoric Basis: Neotamandua & the prehistoric ant Titanomyrma (which is seen on his chest)..
  • Merg Arita's modus operandi of devouring people and almost digesting them is similar to Gyabler from the previous season.
  • The password on his safe is a pun on "want to eat".
  • Merg Arita is the second Gangler Monster not to assume to a human form.
    • Merg Arita is also the second standard Gangler Monster to have their Gangler Safe located on a diffrent part of their body other than their thorax/abdomen area (in this case: Merg's safe is located on his left forearm)
