The Castration Complex According to Freud, “castration anxiety” is fear of losing the penis, the one thing that all men need to have any type of sexuality whatsoever, mother or not. While reading The Metamorphosis, I came across several instances that suggest Gregor is full of this castration anxiety. Some scenes can also be interpreted as a symbolic representation of his father actually going through with Gregor’s castration, in fear of Gregor winning over his mother.

He does so by adding in the characters Chin-kee and Danny. Chin-kee is the Monkey King, Emissary of Tze-Yo-Tzuh (the big god in the novel) disguised as a very stereotypical Chinese immigrant who often visits his American “cousin” Danny.
