In the Initial Era, Crudzilla first appears in D.O.P.E. Volume 1, Number 12 (1994). He is attacking the bay with his breath blast when D.O.P.E. hears the alarm. The main four are challenged by Big Mouth to handle Crudzilla themselves. They fly out in the van to fight him. Flaming Idiot goes straight at him with his fire blasts, but Crudzilla fights back with his eye lasers. Crudzilla's power is too strong and Flamin' gets hit, sending him falling. Saliva-Man andPinhead fly in the van to save him, but Crudzilla smashes the van with his fist. Leper then attacks, blasting Crudzilla with some disease-ray that he didn't even know he had, and it has little effect on the creature. Finally, an arrow shot by Turk, large lizard hunter, hits Crudzilla, and sends him back into the ocean.
