Ghilaron is a mutant creature made by Dr. Demonicus who appears in issues #4 and 5 of the 1977 Marvel comic series Godzilla.

Comic appearances


A creation of the evil scientist Dr. Demonicus, Ghilaron was one of several monsters enslaved by the crazed scientist, living in the crater of a dormant volcano on one of the Aleutian Islands that Demonicus had converted into his secret base.

Ghilaron was present when Demonicus' prized creation Batragon returned from its initial battle with Godzilla, using the powerful energy of the meteorite known as the Lifestone embedded into the volcano's crater to heal its wounds. The bat/Komodo dragon hybrid monster didn't rest for long, as Godzilla managed to track the beast to the island and engaged in a rematch with Batragon, resulting in the death of Demonicus' favorite mutation.

After the demise of Batragon, Dr. Demonicus unleashed the rest of his creations on Godzilla and the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents that had followed him. Ghilaron, along with fellow monsters Lepirax and Centipor, scaled their rocky enclosure and immediately began attacking Godzilla. Ghilaron lasted significantly longer than Centipor, but soon found himself at the mercy of the mighty Monster King and was ultimately killed as Godzilla used his strength to strangle the monster and snap its neck.


  • In the cover art for Godzilla #5, Ghilaron appears as red, in contrast to its green coloration in the comic itself.


Physical abilities

Ghilaron's most prominent ability is his eight appendages which allow him to scale surfaces quickly and to constrict enemies with his long, slender body.
