Invidia stands at the height of a Skyscraper. It resembles a preying mantis with long legs that keep it elevated above the ground, and head likened to that of a snake. Invidia has transparent wings that can create vibrations in the air and create currents of wind strong enough to lift or move debris or objects in its path. It’s skin is armored in such a way that heavy ordnance does not harm it.
In the original script, Invidia is the first Kaiju Raleigh Antrobus and Mako Mori are deployed against in the Mark-1 Gipsy Danger. It was born from an egg sac of a seemingly dead Kaiju with “a mountain of crustacean armor, like an outsized mole crab or woodlouse” after standard military weapons attacked, and proceeded to destroy the surrounding area of Haeundae Beach in South Korea. Gipsy Danger uses a Gatling gun in attempt to kill it, but the Kaiju evades its attacks through flight. Gipsy Danger eventually kills it with high powered beam focused through mirrors that burn Invidia to ashes.
- "Invidia" is Latin meaning "envy". The term is often associated with the evil eye and Seven Deadly Sins in Christian ideology.
