Hedoji (ヘドじい,   Hedojī, lit. Old Man Hedo) and his grandson Hedochi (ヘドち,   Hedochi) are characters featured in the 2019 web series Godziban, and the focus of its Master of Monsters: Hedoji segment.

Name

Hedoji and Hedochi's names both come from Hedorah, the monster upon which they are based, whose name is itself derived from the Japanese word hedoro (ヘドロ), meaning "slime" or "sludge." Hedoji's name is suffixed with the Japanese word (じい), which may be translated as "old man" or "grandfather." On the other hand, the chi (ち) in Hedochi's name may be derived from chīsana (小さな) or chīsai (小さい), meaning "young" or "small." In the English-subtitled episodes of Godziban, Hedochi's name is spelled Hedchi.

Development

Hedoji and Hedochi's puppets were modeled by Hideyuki Kobayashi and his company, Studio Koganemushi. Kobayashi, the director of Godziban, also serves as the voice of Hedochi.

Design

Hedoji and Hedochi closely resemble Hedorah, being obviously based on him. Hedoji is taller than Hedochi and uses a walking stick, while Hedochi is very short and possesses eyes which point in different directions.
