The Barem (ベーレム,   Bēremu) are a pollution-byproduct kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 1997 Toho film, Rebirth of Mothra II.


Heisei era

Rebirth of Mothra II

The Barems were created as a byproduct when Dagahra absorbed pollution. They were even more toxic than the pollution itself and were what killed the Nilai-Kanai. When Dagahra was re-awakened, he began producing more Barems. They caused destruction when they washed up on shore, and they were used as a weapon by Dagahra to fight off Mothra Leo. Mothra Leo ultimately destroyed the Barems after he split into many miniature versions of himself and destroyed them from the inside out, causing Dagahra to self-destruct.


GODZILLA: Monster Apocalypse

In December 2017, several Barem were released into the ocean during a confrontation between Dagahra and the United States Navy in the waters near American Samoa. The presence of Barem prevented the Navy from pursuing Dagahra after he fled. Three days later the Barem arrived at the port of Pago Pago, and caused one-third of the city's inhabitants to die of bacterial infection. When Dagahra was fatally wounded by the Australian military on Christmas Day, he flew out to sea and died, releasing countless Barem into Australian waters. These Barems not only infected Australian citizens with a terrible plague, but heavily polluted Australia's waters and killed the majority of marine life around Australia, in an event that would come to be known as the "Red Christmas Scourge" and claim 3 million lives.[3]
