The Sea Monster is very similar to an eel, except it is a couple of meters tall and several meters long. It has gray, swirly skin with green-glowing fins, blue eyes, a large mouth with sharp teeth and a short and stubby horn over each eyebrow.
In the Wii version of Sonic Colors, and the remaster Sonic Colors: Ultimate, the Sea Monster only appears towards the end of Aquarium Park Act 6, in the underwater sections where it resides inside large caves. If the player gets too close to the front of its cave, the Sea Monsters will stick its head out for a couple of seconds, before shooting straight out to attack Sonic, causing damage upon contact. They are virtually invulnerable to attack, so the only option for the player is either avoid them or wear protection.
