Rodan (ラドン) is a giant Pteranodon kaiju that appeared in the 1993 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II.
A Pteranodon mutated by nuclear waste, Rodan was living in his nest on Adonoa Island, watching over the egg of BabyGodzilla. When a team of scientists arrived on the island and tried to take the egg, Rodan attacked their camp, only for Godzilla to arrive and attempt to claim the egg as his own. Godzilla seemingly killed Rodan in the battle, allowing the scientists to escape with the egg. However, Rodan was soon revived as Fire Rodan (ファイヤーラドン) and traveled to Japan to recover BabyGodzilla. Rodan was attacked by Mechagodzilla and seriously wounded, then sacrificed his life to revive Godzilla and allow him to destroy Mechagodzilla and raise BabyGodzilla in his place.
