Bio: Named from the Japanese name for a Pteranodon, ‘Radon.’ Rodan is a prehistoric beast who remained preserved beneath the Earth, and was awoken by a mining excavation in Kitsamatsu. Rodan then migrated into Godzilla’s turf and, as one of the few kaiju completely resilient to Godzilla’s Atomic Ray attacks, became one of the King of Monsters’ most useful allies with shockwave abilities and Mach speed travel.
