A large, serpentine kaiju
(monster) from Japanese kaiju-eiga (monster movies). Manda shared the stage with Godzilla
in 1968's "Destroy All Monsters", but is best known for his starring role as the sea-serpent god of the Kingdom of Mu in "Atragon". Manda strongly resembled a traditional Japanese dragon, with a long, slender, scaly body, four tiny legs, and a sharp-featured head with prominent horns. His most notable special ability was to wrap himself around an enemy and squeeze, constrictor style.
