A Hadosheru (HAA-doh-SHEH-roo; Jap. ハードシェル (Hādosheru) "hard shell") is a rhinoceros-beetle-like Wesen.

In its woge, the Hadosheru sprouts a single pair of transparent insectoid wings. With these wings, the Hadosheru is capable of powered flight and hovering. These wings are powerful enough to allow the Hadosheru to carry a grown man. Its entire body becomes coated in a hard, protective exoskeleton that can absorb the shock of a powerful blow and deflect bullets. The head is protected by a carapace resembling a samurai's helmet, much like that of the Japanese rhinoceros beetle.

At least one famous samurai Saigō Takamori was a Hadosheru. He was dispatched by a Grimm who pried the protonotum off from his upper back to gain easy access to the softer, more vulnerable skin.

Grimm Diary Excerpt[edit | edit source]

I was approached by Tokugawa Yoshinobu to track down a samurai who was rallying support against the shoguns. To my surprise, he turned out to be a Hadosheru. A fearsome Wesen with a hardened armor-like carapace, amazing strength, and unflappable patience.

After numerous encounters, I realized the only way to harm him was to pry his armored shell from his body using his own naginata. Then striking at his vulnerable skin beneath.
