Ghilaron is one of Dr. Demonicus' mutant monsters used to oppose Godzilla in the Marvel Comics universe.
Ghilaron is a straight-forward grappler. He seeks to get a good grip on his enemy's body with his grasping legs, then chomp down with his jaws, worrying his foe's flesh and seeking to wear them down. This pit-bull of the monster world won't release his powerful clamping jaws until his enemy is worn down, or he himself is dealt a serious injury. The monster seems fairly unintelligent and probably is incapable of any other combat strategy.
One of the creations of mad scientist Dr. Demonicus, Ghilaron is the toughest of the children of the Life Stone, next to Batragon himself. The monster appears to be a cross between a lizard and some form of insect, and resembles nothing so much as the basilisk of myth and legend. Ghilaron was kept in the dormant volcano where the meteor Life Stone fell, until Dr Demonicus unleashed his monstrous menagerie to destroy both Godzilla and the SHIELD forces that threatened his secret base. Unfortunately, the madman seriously over-estimated the strength of his monsters, and, after a lengthy duel, Ghilaron was defeated by Godzilla, who crushed the reptilian monster's neck with his bare hands and burned him to dust with the Atomic Breath, since there was no sign of his body after the battle.
Ghilaron is able to climb sheer surfaces with some ease. His eight legs also give him a tenacious grip on adversaries and his savage jaws seem capable of locking onto an adversary and holding on until serious injury forces him to release his grip.
