A formidable Giant from Hindu myths. At one time the borders of India were threatened with the powerful and vast armies of Kala-Yavana. As the plundered the land, Krishna came and told Kala-Yavana to meet at the cave of Muchukunda. He did so and whilst there he found Muchukunda sleeping. He poked Muchukunda with extreme force which woke the Giant. Muchukunda had magical eyes that enflamed anyone who saw its gaze. As the Giant awoke his eyes opened and were seen by Kala-Yavana who was consumed by flames instantly leaving only a pile of ashes.
