This Saturday, we published our tenth close-up, and of course, you recognized Quetzalcóatl, one of the national monsters!
Who is Quetzalcóatl
Lives in: Mexico
Particularity: He was born from Mexican folklore
Appears in: National Monster
According to the website Mythopedia, "Quetzalcoatl (pronounced Ket-zal-ko’-wat) was the Aztec version of the Feathered Serpent god that permeated Mesoamerican mythologies. [...] Quetzalcoatl’s name, which means “Feathered Serpent,” was derived from the Nahuatl words for the quetzal bird and “coatl,” meaning serpent."
The legend says it is supposed to have played an important role in the creation of the universe! Suffice to say you shouldn't mess with him!
What are National Monsters?
Following the request of some of our international partners, we created promotional monsters for their country: the national monsters!
Each and every one of them has been created in partnership with them, and are inspired from culture and legends, in order to distribute them in the local stores that sell King of Tokyo! They are very difficult to find, unless you know people there…
