GHATOTKACHA

Hard as nails Rakshasa-Pandava hybrid. Ghatotkacha took the side of the Pandavas during the battle of Kurukshetra.

Kamsa had ear-marked the last blast of his secret weapon to finish off Arjuna but Ghatotkacha was mowing down his men at such an alarming rate he spent its force on him instead. This left the King wide open to defeat at the hands of the Pandava.

Ghatotkacha's father was Bhima, his mother the forest Rakshasa Hidimbi, and apparently his name means POT-HEAD, but I'm sure this has nothing to do with smoking the ganja.
