Description

Legend has it that the mythical Norzzug was once the protector of the lost city of Amun-Ra in Arabia. Its power was great, but it started to become too deadly. It became vital to put an end to the monster before it could destroy everything. In order to do this, Norzzug was placed underwater where it was rusted solid over the centuries. The creature’s record of existence all but vanished, but when its remains were uncovered in a dry lake bed, a special solution was applied to it to remove the rust. Without warning, the winged lion was on the move... and it was hungry.

It attacked three oil refineries, siphoning all of the oil from them. On its fourth attack, the creature gained the attention of the United States army and H.E.A.T. While following its trail, they intercepted it as it attacked its next target. Missiles were fired, but Norzzug merely protected itself via its maneuverable wings. Godzilla then arrived and the two giants collided, but Norzzug was unlike anything the King of the Monsters had ever fought. Its inorganic, iron body made it impervious to atomic fire, and its hurricane winds kicked up a fierce sandstorm. As Godzilla protected the H.E.A.T. team with his clawed hand, Norzzug turned and took off into the air.

Once further investigation was completed and the truth behind the iron monster was uncovered, it was decided to try and rust the living statue solid once again. Norzzug was lured into the salt mines via oil. Once it arrived, it began to feed. A chemical capable of generating rapid oxidization on metal once exposed to salt and sea water was then sprayed and dumped on it. Finally, Godzilla was summoned again. The beasts fought one another, but when Nick directed Godzilla take it to the water, the end of the mythical monster was signaled. Norzzug leapt onto Godzilla's back and was carried out into the ocean. It was submerged, but not for long. The winged feline climbed on top of a nearby cargo ship, but the chemicals coating its body reacted. Its iron hide began to oxidize, rusting the living statue solid once again.


Powers / Weapons
Flamethrower

Flamethrower

From its mouth, the living statue can launch a concentrated stream of fire. The longevity and strength of this flamethrower depends solely on how much fuel the creature has absorbed.

   
Hurricane winds

Hurricane winds

By simply flapping its wings, Norzzug was capable of generating massive, hurricane-like winds. Due to it living in a desert environment, when it utilized these winds against Godzilla and its human opponents, it generated a fierce sandstorm.

   
Oil absorption

Oil absorption

Having an inorganic body, Norzzug feeds on inorganic material, namely oil. By simply touching the fuel, it can suck it into its body. Should it stand on an underground reserve, its paws will automatically drive the oil to the surface.

   
Wing shields

Wing shields

The wings of the creature are highly maneuverable and can rotate around its body. Should it be attacked, it can quickly move these wings to protect the desired location, usually its face.

   
Iron body

Iron body

Norzzug has an inorganic body composed entirely of iron. This makes it impervious to certain attacks, such as Godzilla’s atomic fire.

   
Flight

Flight

Boasting large wings, Norzzug is capable of flying. Its exact flight speed is a mystery, however.


Weaknesses
Rapid rusting

Rapid rusting

Being made of iron may have its advantages, but it also has a severe weakness to rust. If exposed to water for too long, and certain chemicals and salt with it, it can rapidly rust solid.
