The FinalRado (ファイナルラド,   FainaruRado?) is the Rodan suit design used in the 2004 Godzilla film, Godzilla: Final Wars.


Name

The FinalRado's name comes from Godzilla: Final Wars's title, specifically the word final (ファイナル,   Fainaru?), and Rado, which comes from Rodan's Japanese name, Radon (ラドン?).

Detail

In Godzilla: Final Wars, this is the first time Rodan's been portrayed in a suit since 1968's Destroy All Monsters. FinalRado is similar to the 1956 ShodaiRado suit, but with more pronounced arms and a somewhat similar skin-color to Fire Rodan. It also features a longer neck and legs.

Unlike the original ShodaiRado suit, the FinalRado suit has fingers at the end of the arms, with the first digit being smaller rather than being equally the same length as the other finger digits. On its chest the plates are larger and more obvious. The horns on this suit are much less jagged, but slant upwards.

Trivia

  • The FinalRado suit was also used to characterize Rodan in Toho's CR Godzilla 3S-T Battle game in 2006.
  • Originally during the production of Godzilla: Final Wars, the FinalRado suit, along with the FinalAngira and FinalShisa suits, were to be destroyed during the fight sequence with Godzilla. However, it was decided that the suits would be used later for promotional reasons.
