Gorosaurus is an unusually large theropod dinosaur discovered by Lieutenant Susan Watson on Mondo Island. Before the dinosaur could devour Lt. Watson, it was attacked and seemingly killed by King Kong. Gorosaurus turned up later on Monster Island and laid waste to Paris in Destroy All Monsters. Having grown to nearly match Godzilla in height, it took an active role in the final battle against King Ghidorah at Mount Fuji. Devoid of energy weapons, Gorosaurus relies on its teeth, claws and agility in battle. Of particular note is its spectacular kangaroo kick, where it rears back on its tail and lashes out with both feet. Such is the force of the blow that Gorosaurus has even knocked down King Ghidorah by employing this tactic!
