― Dr. Mark Russell and Dr. Ilene Chen discuss Rodan after he is awakened (Godzilla: King of the Monsters)

Rodan (ラドン,   Radon) is a winged Titan who appears in the 2019 Legendary Pictures film Godzilla: King of the Monsters. He is the first incarnation of the character to appear in an American-made film.

With the ability to level entire cities simply by flying, Rodan was dreaded as a destroyer by ancient humans, who dubbed him the "Fire Demon." Rodan was discovered in pyrostasis within the volcano on Isla de Mara in Mexico by Monarch in 1991. Monarch built a containment facility around the Titan, but in 2019 he was unleashed by Monarch defector Dr. Emma Russell and eco-terrorist Alan Jonah as part of their plot to restore the planet's natural order. Rodan immediately engaged in battle with Monarch's G-Team before encountering the three-headed King Ghidorah, who soundly defeated him. After Godzilla was weakened by the Oxygen Destroyer and Ghidorah took his place as the alpha of the Titans, Rodan submitted to Ghidorah and began to do his bidding. Rodan fought against the military in Washington, D.C. before Ghidorah summoned him to Boston to aid him against Godzilla and Mothra. Rodan attacked Mothra and battled her across the city, nearly killing her before she drove her stinger through his chest. By the time Rodan recovered, Godzilla had defeated Ghidorah. Rodan approached Godzilla to challenge him, only to back down and submit to him, followed by all of the other Titans who had once served Ghidorah.

Name

Rodan's Japanese name, Radon, is a truncation of "Pteranodon." It may also have been chosen to suggest radiation. The name was changed to "Rodan" in English-speaking markets, possibly to avoid confusion with the element Radon. Toho eventually trademarked the name "Rodan," making it the monster's official English name.

According to Monarch, Rodan is referred to in some legends as the "Fire Demon" and "The One Born of Fire." [1] Monarch's Titan designation for Rodan is Titanus Rodan, which unlike the designations for Godzilla and Mothra utilizes his English name rather than his Japanese name.

Design

The MonsterVerse Rodan is a giant pterosaur-like creature with a large beak, two horns protruding from the back of his head, and huge wings with molten rock trailing off their edges. He can walk like a pterosaur by using these wings as front limbs. Rows of spikes adorn his chest, and his tail is large, flat and fan-shaped. His body is a burgundy red color, while his beak is black.

Personality

According to Godzilla: King of the Monsters director Michael Dougherty, "Rodan is a bit of a rogue...you never quite know where his loyalties lie."[7] This is shown when after losing his fight to King Ghidorah, Rodan submits to him and assists him in Boston by attacking Mothra. After Ghidorah's death, he challenges Godzilla briefly, before ultimately submitting to him. Monarch describes Rodan's behavior as that of a "destroyer," unleashing "airborne devastation" upon the natural world.[2]

Origins

Rodan's origins are unclear, but he is presumably an ancient creature, due to being depicted in what appears to be an ancient cave painting. Similar paintings exist of Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah, suggesting Rodan either appeared alongside them in the past or is prophesied to appear alongside them in the future. According to Monarch, Rodan is spoken of in legends, with his name referenced within many ancient temples in volcanically active regions. In 1991, Rodan was discovered by Monarch in pyrostasis in the magma inside the Isla de Mara volcano in Mexico. Monarch notes that Rodan's body structure resembles that of Pteranodon, although he is far larger.[1]

History

MonsterVerse

Kong: Skull Island

After their adventure on Skull Island, Monarch members Houston Brooks and Lin San showed James Conrad and Mason Weaver a cave painting of Rodan, along with paintings depicting Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah, as proof that the inhabitants of Skull Island were not the only monsters in the world.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

After awakening King Ghidorah from Antarctica, Emma Russell awakened Rodan from Outpost 56 in Isla de Mara. An explosion burst from the volcano's crater, and Rodan emerged from the erupting volcano. In order to prevent Rodan from attacking the civilians still evacuating the village, Monarch's G-Team opened fire on Rodan with fighter jets, drawing his attention. At the same time, Monarch discovered that Ghidorah was drawn to Rodan's calls, and decided to lure Rodan directly to the three-headed Titan. Rodan took flight and pursued the USS Argo and its complement of fighter jets. As he flew over the Isla de Mara village, Rodan tore the buildings from the ground below and launched huge amounts of debris into the air. Rodan brought his wings together and propelled himself higher into the air, generating a sonic boom that took out several jets. He then descended and caught two jets in his talons, tearing them apart. Rodan then attempted to catch a jet with his beak. When the pilot ejected from his jet, he fell straight into Rodan's mouth. Rodan began to spin through the air, destroying the remaining jets with his wings. Upon entering the storm surrounding Ghidorah, the Argo dove out of the way and the two Titans collided in the air. Ghidorah quickly gained the upper hand, restraining Rodan's wings with his right and left mouths and firing a gravity beam from his central mouth that blasted Rodan into the water below. After Ghidorah landed atop the Isla de Mara volcano and awakened Titans all around the world with his roar, Rodan landed at the foot of the volcano and submitted to Ghidorah.

Rodan accompanied Ghidorah to Washington D.C., assisting him in battling the military. He later followed Ghidorah to Boston and intercepted Mothra on his behalf so she could not help Godzilla against him. Rodan and Mothra fought across the city, slamming each other into buildings and tearing at each other with their claws. Rodan finally pinned Mothra against a skyscraper, but she used her claws to push him off. However, Rodan circled back and landed on top of Mothra, trying to stab her with his beak. Mothra extended a stinger from her abdomen and impaled Rodan through the chest. Immobilized by the sting, Rodan fell backward and plunged into the burning city below, screeching in rage.

Once Godzilla destroyed Ghidorah, Rodan regained his ability to move and confronted Godzilla along with Behemoth, Methuselah, Scylla, and a female MUTO. Rodan looked up at Godzilla and roared in challenge, but Godzilla returned a look that caused Rodan to submit to him. The others followed suit, all "bowing" to the new King of the Monsters. After this, Rodan began nesting in a volcano near Fiji, with spectators gathering around to catch a glimpse of him.

Abilities

Supersonic Flight

Rodan can fly at supersonic speeds sufficient to outmaneuver what appear to be F-35 Lightning II fighter jets, and is highly agile while flying. Rodan is shown destroying several fighter jets pursuing him by rolling while in flight and smashing them with his wings. When flying at top speed, Rodan's wings generate cyclonic drift streams that can level entire cities instantly by literally ripping structures out of the ground and into the air.[2]

Shockwaves

Rodan produces destructive shockwaves, described by Monarch as "cyclonic drift streams,"[2] while flying at top speeds which can flatten buildings he passes over and launch debris such as vehicles and people into the air. Monarch scientists speculate the monster's wingspan is vast enough to level cities with this technique.[8]

Durability

Rodan has an extreme tolerance to heat and magma, having hibernated inside a volcano for at least several decades.[9] He is also completely immune to conventional weaponry such as gunfire or missile strikes. A layer of volcanic rock acts as armor plating for Rodan's wings.[2] This volcanic rock also covers many parts of his body, giving him extra protection in combat. When Mothra stabbed Rodan's head with one of her claws, her attack failed to pierce his skin, although Rodan did seem visibly hurt by the blow. Rodan survived being completely impaled by Mothra's stinger, the attack only temporarily incapacitating him before he recovered virtually unharmed despite the gaping wound in his chest.

Magma System

Rodan has an internal combustion system of magma that flows throughout his body.[10] The magma throughout his system can reach temperatures up to 1,200°C.[11] The magma leaks through the ends of his wings and was able to burn Mothra's wings.

Physical capabilities

Rodan mainly uses his talons and beak in combat. When in the midst of several fighter jets, he performed a barrel roll maneuver to smash them with his wings. He was even able to briefly overtake King Ghidorah during their fight.

Eruptions

As noted in Godzilla: King of the Monsters - The Official Movie Novelization, Rodan can seemingly cause volcanoes to erupt just by merely flying over them.

Filmography

Gallery

Main article: Rodan/Gallery.

Roar

Rodan's cries in the film were primarily derived from recordings of owls, penguins, vultures and sandhill cranes. [12]

Trivia

  • The Monarch outpost where Rodan was being studied is Outpost 56, a reference to the release year of his debut film, 1956.
  • The nickname given to the location where Rodan is found, "el nido del demonio," is Spanish for "the demon's nest."
  • Originally, the Mexican volcano in which Monarch discovered Rodan was named Isla de Mona, which is the name of a real island in the Puerto Rican archipelago. The name was eventually changed to Isla de Mara.
  • The MonsterVerse Rodan is the shortest incarnation of the character, yet is also the heaviest and has the widest wingspan.
  • Some concept art for Godzilla: King of the Monsters shows Rodan with Godzilla and Mothra[13] and fighting alongside Godzilla against King Ghidorah.[14] It is unknown whether Rodan actually was originally planned to fight alongside Godzilla and Mothra instead of on King Ghidorah's behalf.

Plus, he's bio-volcanic and has the internal combustion magma system to prove it.

In the debut film, Rodan's parents Radioactive Wind Breath (probably due to nuclear and geothermal radiation exposure). And in GVMG2, Fire Rodan had the more iconic Uranium Beam. And in Godzilla: Domination, he could fire off an Atomic Heat Ray, which looked more like a fireball.

They made him a living volcano with wings and the "secret screening leaks" compared him to a dragon. And what kind of dragon has more involvement with fire and destruction? (Well, it's DEFINITELY NOT Eastern Dragons, from what I can remember. Cuz they're more associated with water and weather. Although, Manda seems to be an exception.) Western Dragons. Just ask Smaug! Oh, wait...he dead. Oh well!

Point is, keep an open mind. He could theoretically do it in the future, if Toho allows them to take the Monsterverse further. I mean, we didn't even know that this Godzilla had a Nuclear Pulse, until the trailers and Aftershock! And KG with his wing-based Antigravity Beams!

Right, but it still doesn't hurt to imagine it. Especially with his bio-volcanic nature.

BTW, my personal opinion on why (*Showa*) Rodan's parents died in the lava (*Heartbreaking!

Toho basically, and unknowingly, made him semi-bio-volcanic back then, if ya think about it.
