also known as the Smog Monster, Hedorah is one of Toho’s more uglier monsters, it is also one of the more complex ones, with many forms. Hedorah has been said to be the inspiration behind Destroyah, as both monsters go through many forms. Like Destroyah, Hedorah is a very powerful opponent for Godzilla, the strongest of all in the showa series. This Monster is born from pollution, so don’t underestimate it.
Height: 30 meters-60 meters, millennium series: 120 meters
length 0.1 mm to 40 meters
mass: showa: 48 000 tons, milliennium: 70 000 tons
powers/abilities: Despite it’s looks, hedorah is one tough monster. Its whole body is corrosive ( being made of pollution and all) and just touching it can burn some one’s skin, in one of their battles, Godzilla struck by plunging his hand into Hedorah, which ended up having his hand burned badly. All of Its forms can throw corrosive sludge as a projectile. in order to change forms, all Hedorah has to do is to join up with others of his kind ( hedorah is asexual). The Monster grows more powerful as it feeds on pollution ( over all his first movie was partially a way to tell people about what people are doing to the earth is wrong, i tell about that later on). in his flying form, hedorah flies ( no! really?!) at mach 1 ( kinda slow), all the while releasing a toxic mist from his body. He is also able to shoot laser beams from his eyes, which, when struck, will release yet again a toxic smoke ( chemical warfare FTW!!) the final form of Hedorah is able to dispel a huge quantity of sludge out of his body, in one scene he uses it to try to drown Godzilla in a pit. Hedorah is also unaffected by Godzilla’s atomic ray ( science is once again confusing), and also seems to have some level of regeneration. The Hedorah that appeared in Godzilla: Final wars (yes he only appeared in two movies) was able to shoot some kind of chemical mist out of tubes in its body, but in that movie hedorah had such little screen time that we didn’t know that he was even in the film until the scene where he was blasted out of the water. (over nerfed)
Weaknesses: Hedorah has one pretty simple weakness : dehydration. If his body is dehydrated, it will lose its acidic and regeneration properties, thus making him vulnerable to attack. this is how he was defeated in Godzilla v.s Hedorah, humans used giant electrodes to electrocute him, and drying him out, Godzilla then proceeded to rip his innards out with his claws ( violence is abound)
other names: the smog monster, hedorha, hedrah
