Chibikurora's name comes from the words chibi (チビ, chibi?) and kuro (黒, kuro?), meaning black, in reference to its black fur, combined with the common kaiju suffix -ra.
Like the other original Godzilla Generations monsters, Chibikurora's design is very simple. It is a light yellow chibi creature covered in black fur with three tufts of hair coming out of its head and a pair of eyes with sclera, iris and pupils. It shares its basic 3D model with Junira.
