History[edit | edit source]

Heisei era[edit | edit source]

Orochi, the Eight-Headed Dragon[edit | edit source]

As the sunburst of light spread across the ground, Utsuno Ikusagami appeared. In its massive frame, the humanoid giant contained the three legendary lights of Yamato. As soon as Orochi emerged, he began spraying fire at the warrior. To defend himself against Orochi's fire, Ikusagami activated his wings and raised a shield. The shield was blasted by Orchi until it exploded. Ikusagami managed to grab a hold of one of Orochi's necks after charging at him. The lasers of Orochi were fired, but the head of Ikusagami was cut off by Ikusagami. A defensive move from Ikusagami led to Orochi backing off. The monster only had three heads left after he started decapitating them. Orochi was blasted with his laser until he exploded from a bolt of light from his hand.
