Manda in Atragon

Manda (マンダ) is a sea serpent monster that first appeared in the 1963 Toho film Atragon and was later incorporated into the Godzilla franchise in the movie Destroy All Monsters in 1968.


Manda is heavily based on traditional depictions of sea dragons in Chinese mythology. Manda has a long snake-like body, four small legs, and a dragon-like head. In the Showa series, Manda is 10 meters tall, 150 meters long, and weighs 30,000 tons. In Godzilla: Final Wars, Manda is 40 meters tall, 300 meters long, and weighs 60,000 tons.


Manda is the guardian monster of the legendary ancient underwater kingdom of Mu.
