Archer (射手 Ite) is a character that was considered and played with for some time for the manga, Kaiju. In the story, Archer was originally conceived as a teenage girl who could become a massive giant, who would use her increased strength to fight other kaiju. She was also under consideration at the time to be one of Goji's close friends.
Nearly a decade later, as Wyvern began returning to his old ideas for Archer, he would become compelled to flesh her out just a little more. These additions to her character included giving her a name, knowledge of martial arts for kaiju related combat, and considering having her be part of a human organization that relied on their own kaiju in order to fight off hostile monsters.

- Originally a nameless concept at the time, Archer would receive her name roughly a decade later. Her name took inspiration from the name of the main character in the horror movie, Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, Nancy Archer.
- Likewise, Archer's ability to grow to enormous size was a reference made to the movie.
