Killer candlefrobras is an arrangement of two candlefrobras that act in some ways like killer toads. For example, they can eat a heavyweight spaceship.

A 12-glider synthesis is known for a stator variant of this oscillator which uses two beehives instead of two blocks for stabilization. The canonical variant (shown in the infobox) had been synthesized in 32 gliders based on the stator variant above. On March 24, 2024, KtT lowered the cost of the canonical version to 10 gliders.[1][2]
