"Dora Circe! I'm hungry! Feed me! Feed me!"
―Dora Circe's first words upon being created.[src]

"I wanted to eat that!"
―Dora Circe's final words before his death

The Dora Circe (ドーラキルケ Dōra Kiruke, 8) is a pig-themed Dora Monster from the Bandora Gang.

Character History

At the time of Dora Circe's creation, Bandora was obsessed with her weight and was attempting to lose weight. However, after witnessing Mamoru and his family enjoying a large meal, she decides to make the family of gluttons pay for enjoying food while she starved herself. Bandora then demanded an appropriate monster to make this family miserable. Pressed for a solution Pleprechuan found the clay figure for Dora Circe among his rejected designs and brought the creature to life. It was then sent to Earth to eat to secretly eat all of the food in Mamour's home and trash his family's grocery store. Unaware of what was going on, Mamour's family became hostile toward each other as the lack of food made them irritable and angry. Eventually, Dora Circe begins expanding his gluttonous rampage by eating every scrap of food within reach.

When the Zyurangers try to stop this creature, they are shocked when the monster eats their weapons. Before they could be destroyed the team was rescued by the mysterious Gnome who takes the team back to his domain in the mushroom forest. There, he tells the team that Dora Circe's only weakness is a rare herb called Moly. Gnome offers to give the Zyurangers the rare herb if they can eat all the food he puts out before them. Despite the large quantities of food, the heroes manage to eat every bite and are awarded the Moly. Returning to Tokyo, the group then trick Dora Circe into eating the Moly causing the monster to vomit up their weapons. The team quickly destroyed Dora Circe by forming the Howling Cannon and blasting the monster into oblivion without having to fight its giant form, thanks to Bandora being unable to throw her sceptre due to the all hunger she suffered from the entire episode.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Design

  • Dora Circe was modeled after a pig and wears a traditional Trojan warrior helmet. This is an homage to the tale of the Odyssey in which the crew of the hero Odysseus are turned into swine by the witch Circe. Thus, rather than being based on the witch herself, his design is based on the transformed crewmen.

Concept Art

Etymology

  • Dora Circe follows the naming convention of all his Dora Monster brethren, named after his master, Bandora, and adding the final syllable of her name to a monster of classical mythology, in his case Circe. Circe was a witch from the tale of the Odyssey who transformed Odysseus's men into swine.

Notes

  • Dora Circe was inspired by the Greek sorceress Circe who turned men into animals based on their personalities, and whose magic was neutralised by moly.
