The SanDaikajiuRado (三大怪獣ラド?) is the Rodan suit design used in the 1964 and 1965 Godzilla films, Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster and Invasion of Astro-Monster.


Name

In Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster, the SanDaikaijuRado's name comes from the film's Japanese title, specifically san daikaiju (三大怪獣?), meaning three giant monsters, and Rado, which comes from Rodan's Japanese name, Radon (ラドン?).

In Invasion of Astro-Monster, the DaisensoRado's name comes from the film's Japanese title, specifically daisensō (大戦争?), and Rado, which comes from Rodan's Japanese name, Radon (ラドン?).

Detail

The SanDaikaijuRado suit looks very similar to its predecessor, ShodaiRado, but with smaller wings, more akin to the wings of a bat, and a bigger body. The head is more bird-like in appearnace, and the wings have short fingers with claws. The suit ias also called the DaisensoRado (大戦争ラド?) in Invasion of Astro-Monster.

Trivia

  • The SanDaikaijuRado suit is the only Rodan suit to be used in more than one movie.
  • While the body of the suit remained the same, the wings were changed in each movie it appeared in.
  • After its appearance in Invasion of Astro Monster, one of the DaisensoRado puppets was sent to Tsuburaya Productions. There, it was defeathered and remade into the giant bird, Litra. Afterwards, the prop was modified again, and given a completely new colour scheme and feathers to turn it into the endangered bird kaiju, Larugeus. Finally, the suit was returned to Toho, and was defeathered again, then redesigned heavily into the puppet used for the Giant Condor.
