NAMORODO

A picture showing the legend of NAMORODO taken from our Australian mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Australian Gods, Australian Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

Australian Flesh-creeping Frighteners

Never mind the Bunyip or the Killer Kangaroo. The NAMORODO are among the worst monsters Australia can offer. They are frightful flesh-creeping fiends composed — or rather decomposed — of rotting skin and bone, shreds and sinews.

The wind moans through them as they fly at night, waiting to pounce on you and suck your insides out. If they catch you, they'll turn you into one of them. What a horrible prospect.

There is no defense except to leave Australia before the sun goes down. Vampires are cuddly in comparison.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Namorodo graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Namorodo movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Namorodo statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Namorodo. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
