You're not even a real rhino! You're just a lot of smoke and noise! I'm not afraid of you!
~ James to the rhino

The rhino was the secondary antagonist of James and the Giant Peach and the film of the same name.

Appearance

The rhino was a giant blue cloud that was shaped like a rhinoceros with yellow eyes.

Biography

In the book

In the book, the rhino is a normal rhinoceros that escaped from the London zoo.

In James and the Giant Peach

In the film, the rhino came out of nowhere and gobbled up James' parents, forcing James to live with Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge.

Spiker and Sponge used the rhino to scare James. It is unknown whether he was once a real rhinoceros when he killed James' parents or if he is just a spirit haunting James (more likely the second one since rhinoceroses are herbivores and do not eat meat).

When James and his best friends finally reach New York, the rhino appears and tries to slow down their progress. Slowly, he approaches the giant peach, using the power of fear. When James manages to muster up the courage to say he isn't afraid of the rhino, he ultimately dissolved, but not before shooting a final bolt of lightning at the giant peach.

Powers and Abilities

  • The rhino was made of clouds, so he probably couldn't be harmed.
  • He seemed to have the ability to control the weather because when he appeared, a strong wind came and a storm cloud also appeared, and when he arrived, lightning appeared afterwards.
  • The rhino also used fear as a weapon: The more a person feared him, the stronger he got.
