First appearance Godzilla: Journey to Monster Island

Gila is a reptilian monster who appears in Scott Ciencin's 1998 Godzilla novel, Godzilla: Journey to Monster Island.


Like Kamacuras, Kumonga, and Sasori, Gila is implied to be a result of experiments with size-changing technology conducted at a secret facility in the Nevada desert. They were possibly experimented on directly after hatching, born from the egg of a parent that was a test subject, or experimented on while in the egg.


Godzilla: Journey to Monster Island

Gila is presumably one of several juvenile monsters cared for and fed by Kamacuras and Kumonga in Godzilla Invades America, along with Gopher, Armie, Gecko, and Chuck. However, the young monsters are not described and named until Godzilla: Journey to Monster Island, being treated as an undifferentiated menacing horde to human characters that stumble upon a nest of monsters in the Nevada desert.

After the nest was reported to the military, plans were made to destroy it, but upon their arrival only eggshells were found; Kumonga and Kamacuras had evacuated the nest.

Gila would later be part of the procession of monsters following Godzilla to what would become Monster Island. After a battle broke out between some of the larger kaiju in the procession, Gila and the other younger monsters fled into a crowded city and had to be calmed by the psychic twins Roy and Amy, and led out of the city.
