Garoborg (ガロボーグ,   Garobōgu) is an electric kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in episode 13 of the 1973 tokusatsu kaiju series, Zone Fighter titled Hair-Rasing! The Birthday of Terror.

Name

Garoborg's name may be a portmanteau of "Garoga" and "cyborg", in reference to his origins of being created by the Garogas, and being a cyborg/robot.

Design

Garoborg has a light blue body fitted with red metal ridges on certain parts of his body. One of these red beams extend down his chest and is adorned with golden circular lights. Above this is a darker gold panel with wires or tubing connected to it. These wires connect into Garoborg's round, orange, glass-encased head. Atop his head is a thick blue antennae, with a yellow light attached at its front and a red circular object at its tip. Garoborg has short blue arms, ending with two mechanical red digits on his left and a large claw on his right arm. These arms are fitted with two of the aforementioned ridges as well as two protruding circular objects. Finally, Garoborg's legs are hued the same shade as the rest of his body and also have ridges toward the upper thigh. These legs end with two toeless feet, decorated with two more red circular objects on their front as well as yellow ones on the inner heels.

History

Showa Series

Zone Fighter

Hair-Raising! The Birthday of Terror

After a botched attempt on the Zone Family's life went sour, the Garogas unleashed Garoborg to finish the job. Hikaru Sakimori was quick to transform into Zone Fighter and grow to giant size to combat the mechanical beast. Garoborg was initially untouchable due to the large amounts of electricity radiating from his outer surface. Zone Fighter eventually used a tree and some static shock to deal damage to Garoborg, before realizing which parts of the monster's body fueled it. Zone destroyed said parts, allowing him to engage Garoborg in melee combat without suffering injury from the shocks. Before long, Zone Fighter along with Smokey finished off the monster.

A second Garoborg would team up with Spider Uros and fight Godzilla before having missiles fired through his body causing him to die.

Abilities

  • Garoborg can create strong shocks that electrocute anything which makes direct contact with him.
  • Garoborg can fire burning hot steam from the object on his head.

Weaknesses

The glass dome on his eyes and brain are rather weak, and if damaged can make the beast lose its ability to create shocks.

Roar

Garoborg reuses roars from the Ultraman Ace kaiju, King Crab.
