The ShodaiShisa (初代シーサー,   ShodaiShīsā?) is the King Caesar suit design used in the 1974 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla.


Name

The ShodaiShisa's name comes from shodai (初代?), meaning first generation, and Shisa, which comes from King Caesar's Japanese name, Kingu Shisa (キングシーサー?).

Detail

ShodaiShisa's snout is dinosaur-like, with several teeth visible when it is open. Its eyes are red, (bearing pupils in promotional images) and its ears are bent similar to a dog's.

Its upper half is covered in fur and has a kind of gold look to it, and its lower half has fur only on its legs and tail. The suit's skin is brick-like, and its claws are long.
