The Garoga Spider (ガロガスパイダー,   Garoga Supaidā) is a kaiju created by Toho that appears in the ninth episode of Zone Fighter, "Search for the Secret of the Red Spider!."

Name

The Garoga Spider's Japanese name, Garoga Supaidā (ガロガスパイダー), is simply a combination of Garoga (ガロガ), the name of the race who deployed it, and supaidā (スパイダー), the Japanese word for spider. The creature is also sometimes referred to as the Red Spider (赤いクモ or レッドスパイダー), including the name of its debut episode, Search for the Secret of the Red Spider! Additionally, the book Toho Special Effects All Monster Encyclopedia erroneously refers to the Garoga Spider as Garopa Spider (ガロパスパイダー), albeit only once.[1]

Design

The Garoga Spider is a giant crimson spider.

History

Zone Fighter

The Garoga Spider was deployed by the Garogas to mutate animals into Terror-Beasts. It managed to find a Gorilla and bit it. The Garoga Spider then began drinking the blood of the gorilla, transforming it into Garoga Gorilla. Garoga Spider then flew away in a hurry and ended up landing on a pair of railroad tracks, before being killed by an oncoming train.

Abilities

Flight

The Garoga Spider is able to fly at a moderate speed, allowing it to locate and descend on its prey.

Blood-sucking

The Garoga Spider is able to drink the blood of its victim through a bite, which causes the victim to undergo rapid growth and mutation. It demonstrated this on a zoo gorilla, turning it into the Garoga Gorilla.
