Chameleon was a nemesis mutation of Godzilla (Junior). Chameleon was a monster that closely resembled Godzilla Junior, save for a very strange, insect-like head and maw. It was created by Cameron Winter to destroy New York City and "frame" Godzilla for the destruction it had caused . However, Phillipe Roache's terrible weapon, meant to destroy Godzilla, was used on it instead, after which he allowed Godzilla to live. The creature had a very strange head consisting of three different appendages with claws/teeth at the end of each. It also has a mouth on its' chest, it has eye-like organs on its shoulder and lower jaw and its skin color makes it appear to be decomposing.

According to Winter he developed the Chameleon to have high resistance to Godzilla's atomic breath. However, the Chameleon's greatest ability was its surprising ability to change the color of its skin flawlessly in order to blend in into its surrounding environment, allowing the Chameleon to easily hide among New York city's high-rise buildings and structures such as bridges and skyscrapers. The creature appeared in the Godzilla: The Series episode An Early Frost.
