Respect Birdon: Ultraman

Of the kaiju who can claim to have killed an Ultraman, Birdon is among the most ridiculous looking. Still, the Volcano Bird monster makes up in power what it lacks in looks, cementing a role as a deadly fighter and far above the average kaiju. As a matter of fact, Birdon is classified as an ultimate class kaiju.

Birdon is 62 meters tall and weighs 30,000 tons, a rather smallish kaiju despite the ability to take on enemies much larger than her easily.


Birdon I

This Birdon emerged from a volcano from an egg which was rocked into being awake by the volcano’s eruptions. Birdon would then go on to devour her old food, the Kemjila and in the process, got into a scrap with Ultraman Taro. Birdon killed the Ultra and then killed Ultraman Zoffy when he attempted to take her down, allowing Birdon to continue her feeding frenzy on humans now. Taro would eventually return with new powers in the nick of time, for Birdon had laid eggs that would make even more of her kind. Taro used his new power to seal Birdon back into her volcano prison and destroy her eggs

Strength and Beak

Birdon is brutally powerful and her beak is razor sharp, allowing her to deal terrible levels of damage even to the thick skin of Ultras.

Unusual Finch-like Bird, Calgary, Alberta

Hey denizens of r/whatsthisbird, just looking for some insight. Got this little fellow in at the clinic I work at last night, and I've never seen his like before. To supplement the less-than-quality imgur album: it was a perching bird, 6-7 inches from beak to tail (smaller than a robin but much larger than a chickadee). Body and head were a rusty orange-brown color, accompanied by black-grey wings marked with white bars. Beak was much heftier than any finch that I've seen, and distinctly uncrossed (definitely not a grosbeak or crossbill). Haven't been able to find a match for him on any lists of Albertan species. Thanks for your insight!
