|This article is about a/an monster in Kamen Rider, the original series.|
Kuragedarl (クラゲダール Kuragedāru, 29) - A jellyfish monster, and was termed as "Electric Monster" by Colonel Zol. Her emblem is that of a jellyfish, worn on the forehead region of the mask on her squad of Combatmen. She was later defeated by Kamen Rider 2's Rider Kick
When a young boy went into a heavily grassed field in search of his dog Poochie, Kuragedarl is seen spying on the older man who brought him here with her extendable tentacle. After tricking Kota to fall down a cliff, she was spied on by the boy; who saw her electrocute a man with three of her Combatmen. The boy then flees. Later, the boy returns and captures pictures of Kuragedarl, who realizes it and shocks the boy into unconsciousness. Kuragedarl then decides to leave the boy there with the camera, and her picture was soon leaked into the news; though the public dismissed it as a hoax, Kuragedarl discovered the identity of the boy, revealed to be named Kota. Later, after Kota informs Ichimonji and Taki of Kuragedarl, who he assumed was an alien, Kuragedarl intercept the trio on their way to the grass field and fights Kamen Rider 2 for the first time. However, Kuragedarl's electricity discharge was in no way capable of harming the Rider, as Rider 2's body can withstand up to 50,000 volts. After Taki assists Rider 2, Kuragedarl decides to retreat for the time being. Later, she arrives at Kota's residence and kidnaps his mother; which she plans to use as bait for the Rider, while other humans she captured on the way were shocked by Colonel Zol to test if they can withstand up to 5,000 volts of pressure for future reconstruction. Kota's mother was then tied to a cross, which was rigged with dynamite, to destroy Rider 2. Taki catches word of this and goes to rescue her. Kuragedarl then orders for detonation to destroy Taki, but Rider 2 arrives and saves them. Kuragedarl then immerges and fights with Rider 2, who snaps her tentacle before destroying her with his Rider Kick.
Kuragedarl can be seen as one of the cockiest of the Shocker monsters, being perfectly fine with allowing her photos to be shown in public, knowing full well that the public would reject it, but it would fall in Ichimonji's hands.
As Colonel Zol termed her suggests, Kuragedarl can unleash volts of electricity on humans through her tentacle, enough to kill an adult. She can also control the voltage for a knockout.
