episode 134: "Spark Raigoro"

Spark Raigoro (スパーク・ライゴロウ,   Supāku Raigorō) is an electricity yokai created by Toho that first appeared in episode 134 of the 1974 tokusatsu yokai series, Go! Kotaro Ushiwaka, titled "Spark Raigoro."

Name

While his episode is titled "Spark Raigoro," the yokai refers to himself only as Raigoro (ライゴロウ,   Raigorō). While Raigorō is a common Japanese given name, it is possible that it was chosen for its similarity to raikō (雷公), a Japanese word for "thunder," or gorogoro (ゴロゴロ or ごろごろ), a Japanese onomatopoeia for thunder.

Design

Spark Raigoro has a mostly silver body, black clawed hands with yellow lightning patterns, and blue boots. He has a large, orange-brown head with catlike ears, large eyes and teeth, and a yellow lightning bolt protruding from the top.
