Norzzug (ノルザグ,   Noruzagu) is a sphinx-like kaiju created by TriStar Pictures that first appeared in the Godzilla: The Series episode Protector.


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. Now, in 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 started attacking, 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 it's 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 it's vulnerability to it's metallic surface oxidizing.

A trap was then concocted. The beast 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.


  • So long as Norzzug has absorbed oil, he can spew a deadly stream of fire from his mouth.
  • By simply flapping its wings, Norzzug can generate powerful hurricane-like winds.
  • By placing its paw in oil, Norzzug can absorb oil. He can even draw it out of the ground if there is more to the well.

It's one of my favourite kaiju from this series. That may just be because I like kaiju based on the Sphinx though.
