Literally the internet doesn't care enough about Gamera vs Barugon to inform me of the man responsible for designing the piece of garbage.
He survives, so we later get to see him interfere with the one good plan the army has and beat the shit out of the wife of the guy who originally hid the opal.
All of this feels very unnecessary. So yeah, its a solid twenty minutes before we actually see any new kaiju action in this movie.
Gamera vs. Gyaos - Wikipedia
Twenty fucking minutes before Barugon shows up. In fact the buck-toothed, fire-breathing defender of children is barely in this movie. But, sigh, more on that in a bit. Occasional Gamera director including the first movie Noriaki Yuasa takes over the special effects in this movie.
The only other Gamera movie he was allowed to do this one was the fucking clip-movie if that tells you anything. Clearly far better at directing than special effects.
Episode guide: 304- Gamera Vs. Barugon
Barugon has the physique of a chameleon. He has a prominent upper jaw with a pointy nose-horn. He has no lower jaw to speak of. Worst is his tongue, which extends perfectly stiffly from his mouth and spays his ice attack from a knob at the end. His tongue looks like a penis that spays icy white smoke.

His other attack is a rainbow that comes out of his back. Gamera than spends almost the entire rest of the movie frozen. Apparently the military just left Gamera and the portion of Tokyo that got frozen around him for the duration of the film.
- Terrible Monster Design and Boring People:
Growing to enormous size very quickly, the lizard destroys the ship and Kobe Harbor. Keisuke, having survived the cave-in, awakens in the care of the villagers. He then returns to Japan with a village girl called Karen, who refers to the lizard as Barugon. Barugon wreaks havoc in Osaka with its freeze-gas emitting tongue and stops the launching of the retaliative missiles with a rainbow-like ray emitted from seven spines on the middle of its back.
Barugon encounters Gamera and the two battle, with Gamera eventually being frozen solid. In the meantime, while debating with Kano on how to recover the opal, which he still believes to be aboard the sunken ship, Onodera inadvertently blurts out that he killed his two companions and then murders both Kano and Kano's wife to cover up his crime.
After finding Onodera, Keisuke and Karen subdue him and leave him tied up in his home. A cave-in starts and Okabe runs away, leaving Eiichi in the cave.
Upon exiting the cave, Okabe is eaten by a giant monster, which is later identified as Gyaos. The workmen enter the cave from a different opening and Eiichi makes his own way out of the cave, where he discovers Gyaos and is trapped by a falling rock.
Gyaos grabs Eiichi and Gamera appears. Shiro and his crew arrive just in time to see a battle between Gamera and Gyaos, during the course of which Gyaos drops Eiichi, who is rescued by Gamera. Gyaos injures Gamera with its supersonic beam, but is forced to retreat after several blasts from Gamera's fire breath.
Gamera rescues Eiichi and brings him safely to a nearby amusement park. Shiro uses the Ferris wheel to retrieve Eiichi from Gamera's back and Gamera flies away. Eiichi is interviewed about his experiences by Dr.
It is Eiichi who calls the new monster "Gyaos" because of the sound it makes. Aoki explains Gyaos' abilities and that it was awakened by the volcanic eruptions. A squadron of aircraft attack Mt.
Futago and Gyaos destroys them. Eiichi calls to Gamera, who is tending his wounds at the bottom of the sea.
Gyaos attacks at night and all of the cattle in the village run away. During a meeting the next day, the villagers become divided on whether to sell their land or not because of Gyaos. Tsutsumi's entire crew, save two, also quits because of Gyaos. A rustling in the bushes scares the remaining men, who think it is Gyaos. Instead, Eiichi emerges and tells Tsutsumi that Gyaos only comes out at night.
Tsutsumi reports this to Dr. Aoki and the defenders use light to make it too bright at night, without success. Gyaos wreaks havoc in the city and the people gather at the Chunichi Dragons stadium, where the lights have all been turned on.
Gamera shows up and they battle in the skies over Nagoya.
