Hedorah (ヘドラ, 'Hedora'), also known as the Smog Monster, is a kaiju from the 1971 film Godzilla vs. Hedorah (titled Godzilla vs the Smog Monster in the U.S.). The monster was named for hedoro, the Japanese word for sludge, vomit, slime or chemical ooze. The pollution titan hedorah measures 60 meters in height and has a weight of 48,000 tons.

Hedorah's flying form.


Hedorah is a monster from outer space who fed on pollution. In its first form, it resembled a tadpole. In its second form, it resembled a quadrupedal reptile. Its third form was like a flying saucer, and its final form took on a humanoid shape.

Hedorah's transformations are thought to be the inspiration for Destoroyah, who also went through transformations, of which he has four.

Hedorah is very curious and doesn't like long battles, so he tries to finish it as fast as possible, which is to say he enjoys finishing it quickly.

Hedorah's species can reproduce asexually, can combine with and separate from other species, and does not need oxygen to survive. This may confirm that all Hedorahs are genderless.
