Ghogo (ゴーゴ,   Gōgo) is a fairy kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 1997 Toho film, Rebirth of Mothra II.

Name[edit | edit source]

While "Ghogo" is Toho's officially trademarked English name for the creature, he is called Gorgo in the English-dubbed international version of the film. This spelling is also used in the English credits on Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's 2014 Blu-ray release of the film.[2]

Design[edit | edit source]

Ghogo has a long yellow-white fur coat which covers his whole body except for his eyes, antenna and claws. He has big white eyes, also with large black pupils, with an antenna on his head that takes roughly a fourth of his total height. He moves constantly by hopping, with feet similar to chickens' claws.
