Axor (アゾール,   Azōru) is a cobra monster that appeared in the 1979 Godzilla episode "The Beast of Storm Island."


Axor is a dark gray serpent-like creature with a lighter underbelly sustained by sleek legs. Its eyes are pitch black with the exception of its pupils. From the upper region of its back rises an oval structure ending in a hole from which Axor blows its gusts of wind. It has a pair of incisive fangs.


When the Calico beached on an atoll called Storm Island, Captain Majors, Dr. Darian, and Brock fell under the hypnotic control of the gigantic cobra-like monster Axor. Vapors generated from the Lazarus Well in the monster's mountain lair had granted it a telepathic ray, which it used to dominate the human population of the island. Pete and Godzooky managed to escape from Axor and hide in its lair. There they were exposed to the vapors, which enhanced their physical abilities extraordinarily. With these new abilities, they escaped from the pit; Godzooky, now able to breathe fire rather than smoke rings and possessing super-strength, was powerful enough to hold his own in battle with Axor. The power was temporary, however, and Pete and Godzooky were forced to call for Godzilla. Godzilla arrived and battled with Axor, dodging most of its beams, before finally turning part of a mountain into glass with his fire breath. When Axor accidentally struck the glass with its ray, the ray was reflected back at it and destroyed it. Upon Axor's defeat, the island populace and the Calico crew were freed from their hypnosis.


Energy bolts

Axor can fire energy bolts from its mouth.

Telepathic slave ray

Axor can fire a telepathic slave ray from its eyes that turned humans and other creatures into its slaves. Godzilla appeared to be able to resist its effects to some degree, however. It also does not seem to work on targets who are ill or sick, as demonstrated by Pete and Godzooky.

Hurricane winds

Axor can create hurricane-like winds from the hole in its head.


  • It was easily overpowered by Godzilla in close-quarters combat.
  • It must be recharged at times by the Lazarus Well.
  • Reflective surfaces can deflect the telepathic slave ray.
  • Axor is susceptible to its own telepathic slave ray.
