Toho that first faced Godzilla in the 1971 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Hedorah was named for hedoro, the Japanese word for mud. This is especially befitting, due to most of Hedorah’s attacks involving releasing acid-rich dirt at his opponent. In its first form, Hedorah resembled a tadpole. In its second form, it resembled a quadrupedal reptile.
Its third form was like a flying saucer, and its final form took on a humanoid shape. Hedorah’s forms all share multiple common characteristics — all have green, kelp-like surfaces and large, yellow eyes with red irises. These eyes are positioned so that they blink sideways. According to an interview with Yoshimitsu Banno by the Japanese magazine Eiga Hi-Ho, Hedorah’s eyes were modeled after vaginas.
