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

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

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.

History

Rebirth of Mothra II

They call it pee, but is it really? It could just be a regenerative fluid that it expels when someone is injured.
