The Doppelgänger Demon is a monster that first appeared in the first issue of the 2015 IDW comic series, Godzilla in Hell.


The creature is never given a name in the comic itself. The name "Doppelgänger Demon" comes from the fact that the creature is a resident of Hell, and that it at first resembles Godzilla before transforming into its true form.


When in its disguised form, the Doppelgänger Demon closely resembles Godzilla, except for the fact that it is covered in multiple scars and wounds, and appears to be missing one of its eyes. Once investigated or nearing its prey, the Doppelgänger Demon will split its skin open and reveal its true form, a beast with massive jaws, a single red eye, and a multitude of sharp-tipped tendrils. However, in its true form, the Doppelgänger Demon keeps Godzilla's dorsal fins.


Godzilla in Hell

The Doppelgänger Demon encounters Godzilla in Hell. Godzilla, after wading through a storm cloud composed of damned souls, discovers what appears to be another Godzilla in the eye of the storm. However, the Godzilla he sees stares off vacantly into the distance. Upon further inspection, the demon takes its true form, and catches Godzilla off guard. The demon gradually transforms over time, opening up more mouths, until finally what was once the Godzilla facade's chest opens up and it attempts to devour Godzilla whole. The decision turns out to be a poor one: Godzilla blows the monster to pieces from the inside out with a nuclear pulse.



  • The Doppelgänger Demon's behavior in attempting to consume its prey using its massive jaws may be a nod to Orga.
  • The demon's true form is also a possible reference to the alien creature from John Carpenter's The Thing.
