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.
Gimlinopithecus are polite, unless they are playing hockey.
Powers and Abilities
Similar to Cerebrocrustaceans, Gimlinopithecus can release strong, yellow electrical charges from their hands, mouth and body, capable of shocking a creature much larger than them.
As shown in Final Countdown, by covering objects with their electricity, Gimlinopithecus can telekinetically move them.
Gimlinopithecus are rather agile, and can run on all fours.
Gimlinopithecus have enhanced strength.

"Gimlinopithecus" is partially based on the last name of Robert "Bob" Gimlin, who, along Roger Patterson, filmed a apparent 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.
