Debura's name may come from the word debu (デブ, debu?), meaning chubby, combined with the common kaiju suffix -ra.
Like the other original Godzilla Generations monsters, Debura's design is very simple. It is a pink chibi creature with two antennae atop its head and a pair of eyes with sclera, iris and pupils. It shares its basic 3D model with Tsunora.
