First Appearance

El Gusano Gigante (エルグサノ,   Eru Gusano?) is a worm mutation kaiju created by TriStar Pictures that first appeared in the 1998 Godzilla: The Series episode, D.O.A.


El Gusano Gigante's name means "the giant worm" in Spanish.


Godzilla: The Series


El Gusano Gigante fed off a rare poisonous plant in Mexico which enabled it to grow to incomprehensible worm proportions. It proceeded to ravage the local farmland. It was then chased by H.E.A.T., and eventually the Mexican Military decided to use a chemical weapon against it. The weapon has the opposite effect of what was desired, as it powers up El Gusano Gigante even further. El Gusano was later lured onto a cliff where the humans discovered its weakness to fire. In its weakened state, El Gusano Gigante was subjected to a sustained blast of Godzilla's Atomic Ray, and shrank to normal size.
