History

Rodan emerged from the Kitamatsu coal mines, the result of far off H-bomb tests and the unwise tunneling into his subterranean tomb. A second member of the species also appeared and both monsters soon began a reign of terror which spread across the Pacific. The monsters were finally destroyed when the JSDF trapped them in their lair at Mt. Aso and succeeded in causing the volcano to errupt.

One of the Rodans was not destroyed, however, and years later emerged from the volcanic slopes of Mt. Aso. The flying monster immediately sought out Godzilla, and the two beasts fought a running battle across the Japanese countryside. Mothra intruded upon their battle, however, and convinced the two monsters to set aside their differences and join forces to defeat the space monster King Ghidorah. Shamed by Mothra's lone struggle against King Ghidorah, Godzilla and Rodan did join forces and the three-headed monster was sent fleeing into the depths of space. Later, the aliens of Planet X successfully arrange with the people of Earth to use Godzilla and Rodan to rid their own planet of King Ghidorah. However, after the two monsters have been transported to Planet X and supposedly driven off King Ghidorah, the Xians reveal that they have designs on Earth. Now controlling Godzilla and Rodan as well as King Ghidorah, the Xians begin their conquest of Earth. Godzilla and Rodan were soon freed from alien control however, and again succeeded in driving off the space demon Ghidorah.

Rodan was one of the monsters later interred on Monsterland. Under Kilaak control, Rodan leveled Moscow and later joined Godzilla, Manda, and Mothra in the attack on Tokyo. Freed from the control of the Kilaaks, Rodan participated in the final battle against King Ghidorah and later was pitted against the Kilaak saucer disguised as the 'Fire Dragon'.



Combat Style:

Rodan displays a crafty fighting style. The flying monster will often attack an enemy from behind, avoiding his adversary's claws and beam weapons. Rodan has also displayed a penchant for drawing the attention of an enemy to give his allies time to recover from their wounds and uses terrain to dodge enemy beam weapons. Rodan has also displayed an ability to think with rudimentary tactics, allowing Mothra to climb onto his back to compensate for his own lack of ranged attacks and giving Godzilla necessary distractions to come to grips with their mutual enemy.
