Description

After three repeated failures, the Garogas sought a new means to end their war on Zone Fighter. They combined elements of animals and plants to create a new Terror-Beast superpower. It was quickly let loose on the Earth and challenged by its prime target after the Zone Family infiltrated their underground base. The two giants collided in a tremendous battle, but Zone Fighter seemed to have the creature beaten. Not even its red gas could stop the champion of justice. However, his energy was depleting more and more with every passing second. Soon, Dorora seemed to have the hero at its mercy. Its clawed limb and tentacle ravaged the warrior, but reinforcements were on the way. Zone Junior and Zone Angel bestowed Zone Fighter with renewed power. Quickly getting his second wind, Zone Fighter blasted off Dorora's claw and used the serrated weapon to cut its ivy tendril off.

Shrieking in pain, Dorora brought out its last ditch attack to defeat Zone Fighter. Thick clouds of mist rolled from its jaws and engulfed the rocky arena in a Fourth Dimensional Net, giving it the appearance of teleportation as it repeatedly moved around the battlefield. Zone Fighter, however, was no fool. He generated his Meteor Proton Cut, powerful waves emitted from his chest, and lifted the mist, exposing the two-headed monster. With nowhere to run or hide, Dorora was then quickly dispatched with the Meteor Missile Might. Soon, the Garogas’ underground base would suffer the same fate.


Powers / Weapons
Sickle claw

Sickle claw

Dorora is equipped with a large serrated claw in place of a left hand. While the monster usually swung this weapon around wildly, it was shown to have tremendous cutting power after it was severed and used against it by Zone Fighter. The claw was sharp enough to effortlessly cut off Dorora’s other arm.

   
Ivy tentacle

Ivy tentacle

In place of a right arm, Dorora is crafted with a long, tentacle-like vine of ivy that it uses for whipping and constricting its foes. At the tip of this vine is a sort of flower that acts as a set of jaws, allowing Dorora to also grasp its victims.

   
Red gas

Red gas

From its mouth, the Terror-Beast can expel massive amounts of a dense red gas. The exact effects of this aren't known, but it did do damage against Zone Fighter, leaving him gasping for air long after the cloudy residue dispersed.

Dorora can also unleash a massive amount of this gas in the form of a light crimson mist from its muzzle. The mist will then spread across the battlefield and also shroud itself, allowing the monster to quickly move around its opponents and give off the illusion of teleporting. While the mist is non-damaging, it gives Dorora an advantage in battle by wrapping its victim, itself, and the surrounding area in a Fourth Dimensional Net.
