Barakidon (バラキドン,   Barakidon) is a kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 12th episode of Zone Fighter, The Terror-Beast Base: Invade the Earth!.

Design

Barakidon resembles a massive chicken with a green covered hunch-back. His eyes are an emerald green, and various eyespots of the same color are located around his body. Mats of brown feathers sit on either side of his neck, and he has massive clawed hands at the ends of his wings. Finally, his skin varies in color from purple to a deep blue, and he has a red comb on top of his neck, similar to the combs found on chickens.

Origins

Barakidon was launched from a Terror-Beast Missile as an egg with a secret underground base by the Garogas harvesting the power of chickens and geothermal energy in order to give to the egg.

History

Zone Fighter

The Terror-Beast Base: Invade the Earth!

Barakidon was deployed by the Garogas after he had received enough geothermal energy to grow. However, as he rose up to fight, he destroyed the Garoga base. With a new source of heat, moonlight, to spur him on, Barakidon seemed to be unstoppable against Zone Fighter, with the latter being beaten badly. However, Zone Angel and Zone Junior were flying in Smokey, and used the spacecraft to block the moon's rays. With his source of heat cut off, Barakidon began to weaken in the cold, allowing Zone Fighter to defeat the avian creature.

Abilities

Physical abilities

After bursting out of its egg, Barakidon tunneled out from underground using its body. During its fight with Zone Fighter, Barakidon was able to shove off the hero after getting jumped on. After using its wings to slow down Zone, Barakidon kneed the hero in the face before jumping on and assaulting the hero with its fists.

Radioactive Mist

Barakidon can expel a white mist from its beak which causes opponents to grow weaker. It used this mist against both Zone Fighter and the Smokey. As stated in All Kaiju Kaijin (First Volume), the mist is also radioactive.

Hurricane winds

By flapping its wings, Barakidon can generate hurricane-force winds. This attack was used against Zone Fighter which was able to prevent him from advancing towards Barakidon. Barakidon slams its tail against the ground multiple times right before and during use of this ability.

Red Light Drain

Barakidon can create a red light from its crest, called Red Light Drain, that will drain Zone Fighter's energy and counteract his ability to absorb the sun's rays.

Eye Beams

According to All Kaiju Kaijin (First Volume), Barakidon can emit beams from its eyes. These went unused in the series, although its eyes are shown to glow green on command.

Weaknesses

Barakidon derives its power from light and heat from various sources, most importantly the light of the Moon. If the Moon is obscured, it will soon begin to weaken due to a lack of heat and its cellular tissue will break down. After the Moon was obscured by Smokey, Barakidon began to run towards a nearby city in a desperate attempt to get power from its light sources. Barakidon was finally defeated after Zone Fighter used his Meteor Freezer on the kaiju, removing all heat from its body.
