Dogora (宇宙大怪獣ドゴラ,   Uchū Daikaijū Dogora?, Giant Space Monster Dogora) was a 1964 film by Toho Studios. It was the third film to feature Robert Dunham (Dan Yuma at the time) and featured Dogora, a strange, jellyfish-like alien, that came to earth, sucking up coal and other carbon based materials.


After a giant jellyfish-like alien comes to earth and sucks up all the coal in the Tokyo area, a band of citizens, including a Scientist, a Diamond Broker and a Police Inspector, band together to try and find a way to kill it, after missiles and shells prove ineffective. After several attacks, the main characters find that wasp venom can be used to kill the beast. An artificial substance of equal power is hastily manufactured and after a long while, the mammoth Dogora is finally defeated.
