Monster Profile: Gorosaurus

Name: Gorosaurus
Movie Appearances: King Kong Escapes,  Destroy All Monsters, Godzilla's Revenge(All Monster's Attack), Godzilla vs Gigan
Gorosaurus is a Tyrannosaurus like kaiju with very small bumps going down his back. He has a large mouth that he uses to bite his enemies and has the ability to jump up high and kick his enemies. Gorosaurus also has burrowing abilities which we see in Destroy All Monsters when he rises from bellow the streets of France and destroys the Arc De Triomphe.

Gorosaurus first appeared in King Kong Escapes and faced off against King Kong. Gorosaurus was defeated by Kong by having his jaw broken open. Later on in Destroy All Monsters Gorosaurus aided the Monsters of Monster Island by helping them defeat King Ghidorah. Gorosaurus is a pretty cool kaiju, I think it is an odd choice that they had him rise out of the ground in Destroy All Monsters because like a Tyrannosaurus he has very short arms and I think it would be pretty difficult to dig under ground with those tiny arms. The reason they used Gorosaurus for that scene in Destroy All Monsters was because it was originally supposed to be Baragon but the Baragon suit was not available at the time when they were shooting the scene, I still think it was a very odd choice. Gorosaurus also appeared breifly in All Monsters Attack, and Godzilla vs Gigan with reused footage. Gorosaurus a Monster Island native and friend of Godzilla's.
