The Fridge Monster was an alien-like creature that attacked the Bebop crew.

Spike Spiegel bought a Ganymede rock lobster in 2070 and stored it in the ship's attic. He forgot about it, and, over the next year, a monster was born. It was a small, black blob that slid around on the floors, walls and ceilings. It traveled very quickly and could alter its shape as it moved. It could incapacitate a living creature by biting it, secreting a toxin, although it was unknown if the bite was fatal or not.

It first attacked Jet, Faye, and Ein. They each developed a purple rash and fell unconscious leaving only Spike to dispatch it. Armed with a heat sensor, nets, and gas grenades, he tried to kill the creature. Instead, he pushed the entire fridge out into space. As he did so, the creature attacked him, rendering him unconscious at the last moment.

The creature later went near Ed, who was dreaming of pudding. She mistook the creature for pudding and ate it, finally killing it.[1]


It was unknown whether the monster had any effect on Ed, however, due to Spike setting the auto-pilot to land on Mars, it is possible she was incapacitated by the monster's poison, too.
