The Meat-Eater is an antagonist that appeared in the 1933 monster film King Kong. The dinosaur famously battled Kong and appeared in the 1932 novelization based on the script. It also appeared in Joe DeViot and Brad Strickland's 2005 rewrite of the novel titled Merian C. Cooper's King Kong and also appeared in Kong: King of Skull Island.
Its vocal sound effects were provided by the late Earl A. Wolcott.
The Meat-Eater was among the prehistoric creatures living on Skull Island in 1933, and came across Ann Darrow, the "bride" of King Kong who was part of the crew of the Venture. Ann becomes horrified of the sight of the dinosaur, Ann screams in terror, but attracts the beast's attention.
The Man-Eater approached Ann and attempted to eat her, but Kong rushed and instantly tackled the dinosaur. After a long and violent drawn-out-battle, Kong climbed on the dinosaur's back and snapped the Meat-Eater's jaws, incapacitating the monster before continuing on his way to his lair with Ann. Later on, Jack Driscoll encountered the wounded Meat-Eater, who was still breathing, but died from its wounds.
Not much is known about the dinosaur's personality, but it showed itself to be vicious and determined to kill Ann.
- In its more recent appearances in literature, the Meat-Eater's description more closely matches that of a Tyrannosaurus rex rather than an Allosaurus.
