Oderus Urungus is both a character and an alter-ego, played by Dave Brockie, in the rock band GWAR. He appears as an intergalactic humanoid barbarian with devil horns and a meaty looking face, and always carries around a long sword named "Lick" (the name was shortened from "Unt Lick," which was used in Phallus in Wonderland).

According to GWAR mythos, Oderus Urungus is 43 billiontry years old, and was assembled on a planet called Scumdogia in "Syntho Womb 5" after pieces of his moldy war frame were found scattered throughout the Galaxy. According to interviews, Oderus' Father was a supercomputer, and his mother was a petri dish. It is suggested in the lyrics of "Fire In The Loins" (from RagNaRok) that Slymenstra Hymen is his sister, but this is never fully explained.
