Rodan is a giant pteranodon, introduced in Rodan, a 1956 release from Toho Studios. Like Godzilla and Anguirus, it is designed after a type of prehistoric reptile. He is the tritagonist of the Godzilla series.

Special Abilities

Rodan's primary weapons are his speed and agility; he can create hurricane-force winds and destructive sonic booms in his wake by flying at supersonic speeds at low altitude. He also uses his beak and talons effectively in battle and his wings, despite their delicate appearance, are quite durable. Rodan can lift creatures several times his weight, for instance, Godzilla. Rodan also usually has spikes on his head and chest, which he may use in battle. Rodan, develops the ability to emit a radioactive heat beam from his mouth called his uranium heat beam, after exposure to Godzilla and a radioactive waste disposal site. Rodan is also shown to withstand Godzilla's atomic breath.

Heroic Traits

  • He assisted Godzilla to defeat King Ghidorah in Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster, Invasion of the Astro-Monster, and Destroy All Monsters.
  • Despite starting out as an enemy in Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla 2 due to him attempting to eat Godzilla Junior as an egg, he assisted Godzilla fight Super MechaGodzilla by transforming into Fire Rodan. In the climax, after brutally getting injured by the robot, he dissolves into Godzilla to give his ally the extra strength to finish off Super Mechagodzilla.
