Portrayed by Teruo Aragaki

The BaruGame (バルガメ?) is the Gamera suit design used in the 1966, 1967 and 1968 films, Gamera vs. Barugon, Gamera vs. Gyaos and Gamera vs. Viras.


In Gamera vs. Barugon, the BaruGame's name comes from the name of Gamera's foe, Barugon (バルゴン?), and Game, which comes from Gamera (ガメラ?).

In Gamera vs. Gyaos, the GyaoGame's name comes from the name of another monster that appeared in the film, Gyaos (ギャオス?) and Game, which comes from Gamera (ガメラ?).

In Gamera vs. Viras, the BairaGame's name comes Bairasu, which comes from the Japanese name of another monster that appears in the film, Viras (バイラス?), and Game, which comes from Gamera (ガメラ?).


For the sequel to Daiei's Gamera, Equis Productions constructed a brand-new suit for Gamera. This suit was very similar to the previous suit, but was characterized by its even more malevolent-looking eyes. The suit retains the core features of the previous one, including the spiky shell. However, the tusks have been reduced slightly in size and sharpness, the snout is more rounded, the head crest is less pronounced, and the overall build is slimmed-down to allow for easier movement.

In the next film, Gamera vs. Gyaos, the suit was slightly modified to give Gamera a less-threatening and more kid-friendly appearance. The eyes were increased in size and made a lighter yellow color, giving them a friendly appearance. The suit retained this appearance in the following film, Gamera vs. Viras, but the eyes were made a darker orange color while the suit itself was given a more bluish tint.

  • This suit was portrayed by actor Teruo Aragaki in all three appearances. Aragaki was an accomplished suit actor in the Showa era, portraying kaiju such as the Giant Rat from Latitude Zero, Rodan in Destroy All Monsters, and countless kaiju in the original Ultraman series and Ultraseven. Director Noriaki Yuasa complimented Aragaki's ability to portray the BaruGame suit, as it was equipped with reinforced steel.
