Dorat's name comes from the "dora" in "King Ghidorah."
Dorats resemble bats, with a chubby build and golden scales. They have membranous wings as forelimbs and a short tail. Their heads have pointed ears, small fangs, and a tuft of mane in the shape of a widow's peak.
The Dorat's roar is nothing more than a slightly high-pitched grunt.
The Dorats were genetically engineered to be the perfect pets in the 23rd century. According to the Japanese novelization of Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, the Dorats were engineered from genetic material recovered from King Ghidorah's preserved corpse on Venus by the Futurians.
The Dorats were three genetically engineered pets brought from the future by the Futurians. They were kept on the Futurians' ship, MOTHER and its sister ship, KIDS, first being seen when Emmy takes the humans onboard.
Dorats can use their wings to fly.
They also sense feelings through microwave impulses.
Dorat makes a cameo in the Gameboy Godzilla game, before fighting King Ghidorah.
