Destro-King (デストロキング,   Desutoro Kingu) is a cybernetic dragon kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in episode 2 of the 1973 tokusatsu kaiju series, Zone Fighter titled Attack! Destro-King.

Design

Destro-King resembles a cybernetic two-headed dragon. His body extends to a great height, with his necks splitting just before the heads. On his necks, he has bright blue spikes. Both heads have three spikes on their scalps, along with bright pink eyes and long horizontal horns. They also have mandibles similar to Gigan. Destro-King has a midnight-blue body with several silver spikes and ridges in his chest, as well as a diminutive pair of silver wings on his back. He also has metal toecaps and a long tail.

Perhaps most unusually, Destro-King appears to have what looks like a fuel tank embedded in his back, which is most likely used to power him and supply energy for his attacks.

History

Zone Fighter

Attack! Destro-King

Destro-King was dispatched by the Garogas in a Terror-Beast Missile, with the intention of killing the Zone Family off. Set free, the monster did not have to wait long until Zone Fighter came to confront him. Destro-King soon gained the upper hand, as even the hero's Meteor Missile Might attack couldn't faze the creature. His energy levels diminishing, Zone Fighter might have been killed, if not for the intervention of Zone Angel and Zone Junior, who blasted one of the machine kaiju's heads clean off! The Zone Warriors then used their beam lamps to revive Zone Fighter, and he pummeled a now-weakened Destro-King, ultimately causing the kaiju to overheat and explode.

The Terror-Beast Base: Invade the Earth!

Destro-King appears via flashback as the Garogas contemplate the many defeats they have suffered at the hands of Zone Fighter. The two battle surrounded by orange mist, with Destro-King offering no resistance as Zone Fighter pummels him.

Abilities

Though he lacks arms, Destro-King will not hesitate to use his heads as bludgeons. He can also fire red lasers from each of his mouths, which are of sufficient strength to immobilize a weakened Zone Fighter.

Roar

Destro-King uses altered Muruchi roars.

Trivia

  • Since Destro-King's heads are operated by the suit actor's arms, the fuel tank in Destro-King's back was where the suit actor's head would be.
