Spyler resembles a heavily altered theropod dinosaur. He has long, bulky legs which are covered in bulbous scales and bumps, and he also has orange-brown circles on the front of his torso. His head and neck are bright orange, and he has luminescent blue eyes with what appear to be bolts underneath them. His back is covered in tuberous spines and two curved, connected spikes which resemble a crescent moon. He has two antenna and a bent spike emerging from his forehead. Spyler has large claws for hands, and two-toed feet.

History

Zone Fighter

Invasion! Garoga's Grand Army: Godzilla Appears

The Silver Garoga disguised as Hotaru's childhood friend Sachio transformed into Spyler during Zone Fighter's fight with Wargilgar. The two monsters overwhelmed the hero until Godzilla arrived to his aid. In the ensuing battle, the King of the Monsters ripped off Spyler's crescent-shaped spike and Zone Fighter finished him off with a Meteor Proton Beam.

The Terror-Beast Base: Invade the Earth!

Spyler appears via flashback as the Garogas contemplate the many defeats they have suffered at the hands of Zone Fighter. The two battle surrounded by pink mist, with Spyler offering no resistance as Zone Fighter pummels him.

Abilities

  • Spyler can emit blinding flashes from the knobs on his chest. Although Godzilla was able to remove the crescent-shaped spike on his back with relative ease, he was able to continue the fight with no apparent pain.
