Baragon is prehistoric kaiju with a prominent horn, sharp fangs, and a fierce demeanor.

The prehistoric, quadrupedal kaiju, Baragon, is as adept at fighting as it is hiding. By living underground for millions of years, this massive, subterranean monster has survived since the age of dinosaurs. With a bulldog-like tenacity and a fierce demeanor, Baragon never backs down from a fight.

Baragon's first encounter with Godzilla occured in 1968’s Destroy All Monsters, where the burrowing behemoth was spotted on Monsterland along with many other monsters including, Rodan, Anguirus, and Kumonga. Unlike the other kaiju on Earth, Baragon was never controlled by the Kilaak aliens. But it did appear during the epic final battle between the Earth monsters and King Ghidorah, where it was seen spectating from a safe distance along side Varan and Manda.

In 2001’s Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Monsters All-Out Attack, we witness a new Baragon that held the title of an ancient deity; one of three guardian monsters of lore that include Mothra and King Ghidorah. All three monsters took turns trying to defeat a truly evil Godzilla, with Baragon attacking first. The battle that followed was brutal, and Baragon did its best against an immensely powerful and savage Godzilla, but ultimately ended up being vaporized by Godzilla’s heat ray.

Will another Baragon emerge from the bowels of the Earth someday? Only time will tell.
