The ShodaiManda (初代マンダ?) is the Manda puppet design used in the 1963 Toho film, Atragon.


Name

The ShodaiManda's name comes from shodai (初代?), meaning first generation, and Manda, which comes from Manda's Japanese name, Manda (マンダ?).

Detail

The ShodaiManda is clearly based on Oriental dragons, as it has a scaly puppet with hair all through its back, two whiskers, four horns on its head, a fairly long snout, reptilian pupils, four short legs with small claws, and a long serpent-like body. The suit also has fangs and a reptile-like underbody.

Trivia

  • The Ultra Q monster, Kai Dragon, was created (and loosely disguised) from reusing the ShodaiManda prop.
  • A smaller ShodaiManda was used for scenes of it swimming rapidly and for the scene of it getting frozen.
  • Although this Manda puppet was only used in one Toho film, it is the only one to be used in more than one production, counting its use as Kai Dragon.
