Kabutogirah (カブトギラー,   Kabutogirā) is a kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in episode 25 of the 1973 tokusatsu kaiju series Zone Fighter, titled "Carnage! Zone and Godzilla vs. the Terror-Beast Allied Forces."


Kabutogirah's name is derived from kabuto (冑), the Japanese word for helmet, specifically a kind worn by samurai in Japan's medieval period.

"Carnage! Zone and Godzilla vs. the Terror-Beast Allied Forces"

Like several other Terror-Beasts, Kabutogirah had shrunk down into a capsule, and was loaded into a Terror-Beast Missile. This missile landed near Mina's house. The Zone Family had been searching for these capsules all day when Kabutogirah's capsule was discovered. Hikaru arrived, but it was too late, and Kabutogirah was released. Hikaru transformed into Zone Fighter, and they clashed! Eventually, Zone was successful, and went off towards the Okutama Mountains to seek out the remaining capsules.



Kabutogirah can be shrunk down and placed into a capsule to avoid being detected. After three hours, the capsule will explode, and revert him back to normal.

Steel-like hair

According to All Kaiju Kaijin (First Volume), when enraged, Kabutogirah's hair becomes like steel.


Kabutogirah's forearms are a pair of massive swords, which he can use to slice or stab at opponents. According to All Kaiju Kaijin (First Volume), Kabutogirah's swords are strong enough to cleave skyscrapers in two.

Obrain Liquid

Kabutogirah can fire a stream of white mist from his mouth that either melts objects like buildings or causes explosions when trying to stop Zone Fighter from transforming into his giant form. When in his giant form, the explosions were far larger. According to All Kaiju Kaijin (First Volume), this attack is called the Obrain Liquid (オブラインえき Obrain Eki).

  • Along with the other Terror-Beasts that appear in Kabutogirah's debut, his ability to be shrunk down into a capsule may be a reference to or inspired by Ultraseven's capsule monsters.
