To be added.

Balgaras (バルガラス,   Barugarasu) is a kaiju created by Toho that appeared in episode 17 of the 1973 tokusatsu kaiju series, Zone Fighter, titled Go! Fighter, Scramble.


Balgaras resembles a Tyrannosaurus rex, with some minor alterations to its body. He has curved red dorsal plates running down his back in a similar fashion to a Stegosaurus', and he has pale spikes running down the outer sides of his legs. His skin is mostly white, but his belly is green with a red streak running down it. Similar red streaks run around his eyes, and he has red irises. Balgaras' Orb form maintains his coloring and some of his red spikes, but has an unusual, near-human face with a large nose and red eyes.


Zone Fighter

Go! Fighter, Scramble!

Balgaras was created by the Garogas when they placed an unknown reptile on the desolate Planet Bulgar. Over time, the animal mutated into Balgaras. A short while later, the Garogas obtain Smokey, the Zone Family's spaceship with Angel and Junior still onboard, and places it on Bulgar as bait, where Balgaras ambushes Zone Angel and Zone Junior. Zone Fighter arrives, and at first was having trouble coping with the monster's unusual abilities, but he lured it into a trap, injuring it with his Proton Beam. He then tore off one of Balgaras' dorsal fins and jammed it into their mouth, before finishing it off with his Meteor Missile Might attack.



Balgaras can curl into an orb. In this form he can fly and hover, but cannot fire his toxic gas, and instead rams opponents. Balgaras can revert back into his regular form, but loses the ability to fly or hover.


Balgaras can regenerate if its destroyed in Orb form, but in the process, turns back into his normal form.

Toxic gas

Balgaras can fire a toxic gas from its mouth.

Balgaras in the Zone Fighter manga

Balgaras appears in a manga adaptation of his debut series. Similarly to his appearance in the TV series, he is deployed by the Garogas on an icy planet and captures Smokey, engaging in battle with Zone Fighter. To assist Balgaras, the Garogas send Gigan to assist the Terror-Beast, and the two monsters team up to fight Zone.


  • Balgaras has one of the most bizarre deaths in the series - after he dies, sparks fly from him, and a cross rises out of the ground. Finally, a halo rises from Balgaras and travels above the cross.
  • Balgaras' Orb form ability is shared with the Bacillus from Godzilla: The Series.
  • Balgaras bears a resemblance to the Return of Ultraman kaiju Arstron, only with different colors and more dorsal fins.
