Jikiro (ジキロ,   Jikiro) is a Terror-Beast created by Toho that appeared in episode 1 of the 1973 tokusatsu kaiju series, Zone Fighter titled Destroy the Terror-Beast Missile!.

Design[edit | edit source]

Jikiro resembles a robotic reptile. It has a hunched back, which results in its head being over its chest. His head is reptilian in appearance and has two red metal horns on its sides. The top of his body has two pylons rising out of it. His right hand can open as a pair of claws but also functions as a cannon, and his left hand has four sharp spikes instead of fingers. Jikiro also has what looks like a giant red screw protruding from the top of his body. Just underneath this 'screw' is a large yellow lamp. Jikiro's body is mostly a metallic silver, but his kneecaps and elbow-plating are red.

History[edit | edit source]

Zone Fighter[edit | edit source]

Destroy the Terror-Beast Missile![edit | edit source]

Baron Garoga sent Jikiro to Earth in a Terror-Beast Missile to ensure the quick destruction of the Zone Family. After Zone Fighter destroyed Red Spark, Jikiro confounded the hero with his magnetic abilities and electrical blast. The Zone Family came to his aid, however, as Zone Great took off one of the machine's arms with Bolt Thunder and the hidden aircraft Smokey recharged his energy. Following a thorough pummeling, Jikiro was destroyed by Zone Fighter's Meteor Missile Might attack.
