Gorosaurus is a fictional dinosaur kaiju created by Toho Studios that first appeared in the 1967 film, King Kong Escapes.
Gorosaurus is a gray bipedal reptile, and has skin with pronounced scaly bumps. He has a row of triangular plates running down his back, as well as strong legs, fairly short arms, and a big head.
Aside from the usual teeth and claws, Gorosaurus has been noted for using a "kangaroo kick" against foes like King Kong and King Ghidorah. This is Gorosaurus' most popular trait. Also, in the 1968 film Destroy all Monsters, Gorosaurus is shown with the ability to burrow underground. This is the only incident where this ability is shown. Gorosaurus' battle against King Ghidorah showed his strategies. While fighting, Rodan made a large dust cloud, which Gorosaurus used to sneak behind King Ghidorah, his blind spot. Gorosaurus kicks King Ghidorah down to the ground, where the other kaiju pin him down and finally kill him. Gorosaurus is also known for being just as strong or even stronger than Godzilla when it comes to muscle strength.
