Abilities and Weapons:
strength, teeth, claws, leg kicking, tail whip, bite
gigantic theropods/kaijus
Mondo Island
First Appearance:

Gorosaurus ("kangaroo lizard") is 500 feet (152,4 meters) long and 280 feet (85,34 meters) heigh specie of theropod dinosaur/kaiju that is found on Mondo Island. The animal is created by Toho Studios and appeared first in the 1967 Toho film "King Kong Escapes".

In addition to his nasty bite, Gorosaurus does possess extremely powerful leg muscles. The monster is able to deliver a terrific "kangaroo kick" by rearing back on his tail and lashing out against his enemy with both legs at once.

Gorosaurus lacks any manner of distance attack and so relies upon close combat. Gorosaurus is a tenacious and determined combatant; even attacking King Kong after the giant ape had left him for dead. Gorosaurus does not display any particular cunning, rather preferring to wade into a fight and trust to his own strength and agility rather than any particular tactics or foresight.

(Please, ignore the fat dude.)

In film "Destroy All Monsters", Gorosaurus appears on the Ogasawara Islands, in Monsterland. It is an artificially created environment for the monsters of Earth. It lives with other monsters including Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, Anguirus, Kumonga, Manda, Minilla, Baragon and Varan. A race of aliens called the Kilaaks invades Earth, capturing and establishing mind-control over the monsters. They then release them in cities throughout the world, with Gorosaurus being released in Paris, France (in both the original and the English dubbed version, Gorosaurus is misidentified as Baragon in the Paris attack). However, the humans retaliate and find a way to break the mind control.

The Kilaaks then unleash the space dragon King Ghidorah to kill the Earth monsters. Gorosaurus plays a pivotal role in the battle, as it twice brings down Ghidorah (the only monster who is able to), the first by pulling on its necks until it falls, heralding the turn of the tide of battle to the Earth monsters' side, and second when it used its kangaroo kick to break Ghidorah's back, as Godzilla and Anguirus attack two of the heads, leaving Ghidorah helpless and vulnerable. After killing Ghidorah, Gorosaurus and the other Earth monsters return to Monsterland to live in peace.
