Dorats (ドラット,   Doratto?) are small, genetically engineered kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 1991 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.


Dorat's name comes from the "dora" in "King Ghidorah."


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.


Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

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.

They were taken back in time to Lagos Island in 1944, where the Futurians believed the later Castle Bravo nuclear test would mutate the Godzillasaurus living there into Godzilla.

After the Godzillasaurus was transported to the Bering Sea, the Dorats were left behind to be exposed to the hydrogen bomb test in 1954, which combined and mutated them into King Ghidorah.



Dorats can use their wings to fly.


They also sense feelings through microwave impulses.
