Cupad (キューパット,   Kyūpatto) is an absorptive kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in episode 42 of the 1973 tokusatsu kaiju series, Go! Greenman titled Greenman vs. Cupad.

Design

Cupad is a strange kaiju which shares traits of insects, birds, and cephalopods. Its skin is a dark blue or gray coloration, with pale red-centered suction cups and a large absorptive patch. Its head is adorned with darker red ridges on its forehead, an orange-red beak similar to a bird or squid, and large, silver, wing-like appendages which protrude from underneath its large oval-shaped eyes and extend off of its head. The monster also possesses large silver wings which appear similar to that of a fly or other insect. However, these wings are purely aesthetic and do not enable flight.

History

Go! Greenman

"Greenman vs. Cupad"

Cupad was the forty-forth monster to battle Greenman. It was deployed near a group of four small children who are playing with a bow that shoots suction cup-tipped arrows. One of the arrows hit in to an invisible object and falls to the ground. Cupad then suddenly becomes visible and chases the children. One of them activate a Green Call which signals Greenman to the scene. Cupad and Greenman have a short battle before Cupad collapses to the ground and loses consciousness. At the command of Maoh, Tonchiki revives the monster and casts a spell on it to rapidly increase in height. Greenman also alters his size, utilizing his machinery, and they resume battle in a small town. After another exchange of attacks, Greenman attempts to kill Cupad using his Breaster attack. However, Cupad absorbs the missiles using the patch on his chest. Greenman attempts once more to destroy the creature, this time using the Flash Shock attack but it is similarly ineffective. Cupad is then able to gain the upper hand in the battle and Greenman sustains critical damage. The children use the Green Call once more to repair Greenman and give him a boost of strength. Returned to full working order, Greenman is able to knock the patch off of Cupad's chest with a swift kick and ultimately destroys him using his Mouth Beam.

Abilities

Absorptive patch

Cupad has a round patch on his chest which can absorb any object. It was first displayed in the Underworld when it absorbed a lizard which had been sitting on Maoh's birthday cake. It was then later used to absorb Greenman's Breaster missiles and Flash Shock.
