Baraguirus (バラギラス,   Baragirasu) is an unused kaiju considered for inclusion in the unrealized story proposal Godzilla vs. Baraguirus. A kaiju possessing traits of both Baragon and Anguirus, the monster was to become possessed by Ghost Godzilla and battle the modern Godzilla.


Baraguirus' name is, simply enough, a combination of "Baragon" and "Anguirus."


No concept art of Baraguirus is known to exist, however Shinji Nishikawa described the creature as resembling a cross between Baragon and Anguirus. After being possessed by Ghost Godzilla, its appearance changes due to the spectral kaiju's influence.[1]


Baraguirus was a new kaiju proposed by monster designer Shinji Nishikawa to round out the monster cast of the Godzilla vs. Ghost Godzilla idea. Resembling a cross between Baragon and Anguirus, hence its name, the creature was not literally intended to be a fusion between the two kaiju. In the story for Godzilla vs. Baraguirus, Ghost Godzilla appears and draws the attention of both Godzilla and Baraguirus. The ghostly kaiju soon possesses Baraguirus' body, and the creature does battle with Godzilla.[2]

Baraguirus was dropped along with Ghost Godzilla during the development process of the seventh Heisei Godzilla film. Director Takao Okawara cited three consecutive films pitting Godzilla against a clone of himself as a reason for this decision.[3]



Like both of its namesakes, Baraguirus can burrow underground.[4]
