The Flasher Gremlin appears in both films. The first one invaded Kingston Falls, and the second one spawned at Clamp Center.


Flasher gremlins will wear a trenchcoat and a pair of sunglasses, taking every opportunity to flash themselves to whoever. The Kingston Falls Flasher seemed to have an interest in Kate Beringer. He was holding a cigarette in his mouth and does his flashing just for fun, even though he really doesn't have anything to flash.26C1B303-5D9F-47E5-AD43-7AFE63756D92.gif

Gremlins ‘84

The first incarnation of the Flasher Gremlin appears behind the counter in Dorry's Tavern and flashes and scares Kate who is forced to serve the gremlins that are running rampant inside the bar. He was seen again sitting by the pool table laughing at the Gremlin on it. He was seen again at the movie theater where he laughs hysterically at the movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, and sings along. He is then seen as one of the gremlins chasing Billy, Kate and Gizmo as revenge for interrupting their movie going experience and as the theater explodes, he dies along with the rest of the gremlins.

Gremlins 2

The Flasher Gremlin in the second film.

In the second film, a similar gremlin (probably the reincarnation of the first one) appears in front of Kate, but this time she gets angry and kicks the gremlin away like she had done before, sending him flying and shouting. In the end, he was destroyed by the Electric Gremlin along with all the remaining gremlins.


  • A Flasher Gremlin figure was released in Japan a while ago.
  • The Flasher Gremlin figure was made in 2011.
  • The Japan Flasher Gremlin was probably based on the first Flasher, while the new one was based on the second Flasher.
  • When the Hub (now Discovery Family) aired Gremlins, they cut out the scene where he flashes Kate. However, when Gremlins 2: The New Batch aired on the Hub (now Discovery Family), they kept the scene.
  • The Flasher Gremlin has possibly influenced the Spanish Comedy Sketch and the movie "Munchies", a parody of Gremlins, where the monster race chase women.
