Ganikomol (ガニコウモル Ganikōmoru, 78-80) - It was initially a mysterious crab/bat monster which appeared during Shocker's last days, foreshadowing the rise of a new threat. Ganikomol was the only Geldam monster that actually appeared in the series, before the organization became the new leadership of Gel-Shocker.

Character History

Ganikomol faces Kamen Rider 1 several times as a mysterious opponent, denying to be a Shocker monster. He also tells Hongo about the Shocker kaijin he looking for is Unidogma. After destroying Unidogma, Hongo is left with a sense of unease concerning the mysterious new monster. The Great Leader of Shocker reveals Ganikomol's image to Ambassador Hell only to tell the executive that he is not his concern. The Dreadful Urchindogma + The Phantom Monster

After Shocker is destroyed and Gel-Shocker arises, Ganikomol kills the remaining of Shocker Combatmen who try to escape before faces Rider 1 once again. In a desperation move, Kamen Rider 1 goes against its flight attack in mid air, both crashing into each other, creating an explosion that seemingly engulfs both.

Revived Ganikomol (再生ガニコウモル Saisei Ganikōmoru, 97) - After its initial defeat to Rider 1, Ganikomol is rebuilt by Gel-Shocker.

Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker

Ganikomol reappears as Dai-Shocker's kaijin. Like Shiomaneking, even though the original one unique, Dai-Shocker seems to have multiples of them. One is destroyed by Kamen Rider Diend's Dimensional Shoot alongside Leiurus Acutia and Longhorn Orphnoch when they attempt to protect General Jark, but more can be seen in Dai-Shocker's army during its final battle. Ganikomols are seen facing Rider 1, Super-1, Blade, Kabuto, and Den-O. One of them is destroyed alongside Ikadevil by Decade, DiEnd and Den-O. Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker

Due to a change in history caused by Ankh leaving a O Medal behind in 1971, Shocker achieved its goal of world dominion with the Shocker Greeed which defeated the Double Riders, and new members from the various groups that would have manifested in the normal timeline after Shocker's destruction. Ganikomol was among the many monsters who were part of the this alliance. He had a human form and acted as a member of the Shocker police. When Ichigou and Nigo revealed their ruse, he catches Mitsuru and gets attacked by civilians. Later, when the riders united against Shocker, he along with Ikadevil and Garagaranda was destroyed by Kamen Rider Den-O Climax Form Boistous Slash and Kamen Rider New Den-O Counter Slash.
