Clover is the given name of an underwater life form that appears in Cloverfield and /Cloverfield Kenshin. The creature was created by artist Neville Page and JJ Abrams.
The monster came from the Atlantic Ocean, where it was awakened by Tagruato submarines sent down from Chuai Station to investigate. The monster rampages throughout Manhattan, destroying the city in its path. This destruction causes the United States government to sacrifice New York City in an attempt to kill the monster with heavy ordnance in the Hammerdown protocol. Before that, the monster killed Jason Hawkins, crushing him with its tail on the Brooklyn Bridge; its parasites bite Marlena Diamond, causing her to explode from the central cavity; and it bites Hud Platt in half just moments before the Hammerdown protocol.
