Norzzug (ノルザグ,   Noruzagu) is a sphinx-like monster who appears in episode 4 of the second season of Godzilla: The Series, entitled "Protector."


Norzzug has a greyish-blue body with a lighter underside that resembles that of a sphinx. His head has two yellow eyes that glowed red after being awakened, grey cheeks with lighter grey patches on the cheeks and around the eyes, a lighter gray snout with a black nose, two gray and lighter gray ears, and a gold chin piece on his chin. He has four legs with four claws on each foot, with his front legs sporting a pair of gold braces with a dark yellow stripe on them as well as a gold fin behind his front legs. He has a long tail that ends with a gold patterned tip. His back, neck, and head are covered in gold metal, with the sides of the metal on his head being a dark yellow and the metal on his back having a square pattern on it, he also has two large gold rectangular wings that have patterns resembling that of feathers on them as well as three dark yellow stripes.


Norzzug was once an ancient guardian that protected the city of Amon-Ra, at some point he had suddenly become too dangerous to the point he had to be restrained. He was somehow forced into a river and rusted solid over the course of over 2,000 years.


The ancient guardian of the city of Amon-Ra, Norzzug eventually became too dangerous and was somehow forced into a river and rusted solid over the course of centuries. In the modern day, archaeologists uncovered the statue within the dry river and removed the rust covering it with special chemicals. Without the rust, Norzzug was again free. It quickly rampaged, destroying oil refineries and absorbing the fuel housed within them. H.E.A.T. was called in, and with them came Godzilla.

Finding the huge statue at a refinery, the battle between Godzilla and Norzzug began. Norzzug managed to take down Godzilla using its hurricane force winds, giving it time to escape to its old home, the now-gone city of Amon-Ra. H.E.A.T. discovered the creature asleep, but a malfunctioning N.I.G.E.L. accidentally alerted the beast of their presence. Norzzug quickly retaliated to their intrusion, attacking N.I.G.E.L. with its fire. The team hid and eventually the ironclad cat depleted its store of oil, forcing the creature into the air in search of food. Norzzug incidentally left the team with a piece of its claw that would lead them to an answer on how to beat it. Through this they learned of its vulnerability to its metallic surface oxidizing.

A trap was then concocted. The guardian was lured to a salt mine via oil and sprayed with a special chemical that would dramatically increase the rusting speed once in the water. Godzilla arrived and the battle was on again. Godzilla eventually forced the cat-like creature into the sea, where the salt water interacted with the chemical and quickly began to rust the iron it was made of. The statue managed to crawl out and perch on top of an oil tanker, but it was too late. In the middle of a fierce roar, Norzzug was rusted solid, ending its reign once again.


Fire breath

After absorbing oil, Norzzug can spew a deadly stream of fire from his mouth.


Despite being a living statue, Norzzug can fly extremely high. His wings are strong enough that simply flapping his wings generates powerful hurricane-like winds.


By placing his paw in oil, Norzzug can absorb oil. He can even draw it out of the ground if there is more in the oil well. He can then use the absorbed oil as an energy source to power his fire breath.


Due to being a living statue made of metal, Norzzug is immune to Godzilla’s atomic breath.


Norzzug survived entirely rusting over and being buried for over 2,000 years.


If Norzzug were to run out of oil, he would no longer be able to use his fire breath. After having materials from the salt mine cover his body and having an oxidizing solution sprayed over his body, Norzzug was pushed into the sea by Godzilla. This started the rusting process, leading to Norzzug to rust solid.
