Original Trogador

Trogador, a 20X6 version of Trogdor, was first shown during the '05 NYU Talk hosted by The Brothers Chaps. At the time, The Brothers Chaps stated that he was likely never to be used on the site, but nearly a year later he proved them wrong by asking Stinkoman for "some type of birthday challenge" in Happy Trogday. In his first official appearance, he was shown to be far larger than his NYU Talk version.

Trogador bears resemblance to an Asian dragon. The beefy arm that Trogador has is done in the detailed and highly exaggerated style seen in such anime as Dragon Ball Z (Trogador's wristband even resembles the wristbands the show's main character Goku wears).

The name could refer to the odd way in which Trogdor's name is said at the title screen of the TROGDOR! game. It could also be an imitation of Engrish. When some Western words are transliterated into Japanese, extra vowels are placed between the consonants that make up a consonant cluster, such as ドラゴン (doragon), which means dragon. If Trogdor were actually transliterated into Japanese, it would most likely read either トログドア (torogudoa) or トログドル (torogudoru) as Japanese has no R-colored vowels.
