History

Ultra Q

Sudar was a gigantic, man-eating octopus thriving in the South Sea, Sudar made its claim on the waters. It attacked a passing fishing boat, sinking the ship and leaving just one survivor. Hearing of the attack, Jun and the others arrive looking for scoop, but they find much more. As they visit Compass Island, where the survivor was discovered, the octopus crawled ashore. It chased after a young boy, trying to ensnare the boy with its tentacles. Thankfully the boy was rescued by one of the newsmen, denying the octopus its food.

The creature retreated back into the depths, but a sudden depth bomb attack would stir its vengeance! Enraged, the octopus crawled ashore once more, using its lengthy tentacles to catch the stunned natives, ignoring the bullets and spears thrown against it. When Jun managed to impale its head with two spears, the creature turned away again, heading for the water. With humans following, Sudar's body suddenly collapsed, the spears Jun threw having hit something vital. The octopus was killed, leaving the South Sea in peace.

Trivia

  • Sudar's prop is actually the Giant Octopus prop used in the Toho films King Kong vs. Godzilla and The War of the Gargantuas.
    • This episode is based off of Eiji Tsuburaya's early proposal for the film that went on to become the original Godzilla.
    • A tentacle prop from The War of the Gargantuas  was used for some shots of this episode.
  • Sudar's concept art suggest that he was originally meant to be a skeletal fish-like monster simply called "Gyo". This was changed for unknown reasons, but it was originally intended to fight Pagos.
    • Gyo's design was developed into the initial design for Dodongo (a skeletal Dimetrodon), combined with elements from Guesra's concept art, this design would be refined into Gavadon. The design was again altered for Gubila's concepts with the final design scrapping the skeletal motif. Ultimately the skeletal kaiju idea would be used for Seabozu though as a bipedal monster as opposed to quadruped like the others.
