"The Idol of Millions"

Films: Daimajin (1966), Return of Daimajin (1966), Wrath of Daimajin (1966)

Alias: Majin

Type: Mystical

Location: Tundra/Civilized Area/Ocean

Height/Weight: As tall as a large building and weighing 30,000 metric tons.

Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Good

Summary: If Gamera was the friend of all children, then Daimajin is the defender of all justice. You can tell just by the look on this idol's face that those who have wronged the people he is worshipped by are positively F*CKED.

History: A spirit trapped in an idol for centuries, Daimajin has something of a love-hate relationship with humanity. On one hand, if not given a proper objective, he could end up destroying anything in his path. On the other, any time he IS summoned, it’s for a noble cause, and he'll comply. Usually summoned by people in a state of power, Daimajin isn't picky, and will heed the call of those lower if he has to. Just know that the evil-doers he's sent to get (usually dictators) are in for a painful ride.

Notable Kills: At one point, he takes the nail-shaped thing in his forehead and launches it straight at the targeted emperor, impaling him.

Final Fate: Daimajin always gets the job done, and when he does, he almost always turns back into a spirit and departs. May we praise his power and justice for eternity.

Powers/Abilities: Aside from being completely invulnerable, Daimajin can make the seas part with his mind! He also wields a sword on occasion.

Weakness: If he completes his mission and witnesses a selfless act, he will go back into spirit form.

Scariness Factor: 4.5-While that grumpy face of his is a bit humorous, there is NOTHING on this Earth that will stop Daimajin from absolutely wrecking anything his target holds dear. Send your armies and all your weaponry, but he'll just shrug it off. Bottom line, don't be on this guardian’s bad side.

Trivia: -Daimajin is Japanese for "Demon God".

-There are actually two statues of Daimajin located at the Kadokawa Daei Studio building in Tokyo.

So, he CAN groove.

Speaking of Samurais, they burn nicely.


It's kind of likely he did originate from Hell.

Oh, he may SEEM placid now...

You can't make this up in an instant.

The seas just parted due to him. Awesomness incarnate.

And thus, Daimajin learned what Christianity was. He shrugged.

Merry Christmas, evil. Prepare for something more than coal.

The one time he uses his sword and there isn't an enemy kaiju in sight.
Beware his ever vigilant watch, villains.

I believe Daimajin has something for you that you forgot. And kind of, you know, LODGED INTO HIS HEAD.

And we have just the idol to fix it!

Awesome=Just add Daimajin.

Praise be to Daimajin. May he rest well.
