Gaira was created from the flesh of Frankenstein, along with Sanda. He was first seen at sea, attacking ships and eating humans. He attacked the shoreline at night, but he disliked the sun and he always returned to the ocean during the day. He was led into a trap, and he was nearly defeated by the J.S.D.F.. Sanda arrived to save him, and he took him to the mountains. Gaira started to eat humans, and Sanda forced him to Tokyo. The two fought and were led out to sea. They were both engulfed in a volcano and died.

Gaira also made an appearance in the television series Go! Greenman. The design is more dark colored and spiky than the original. The suit also appears to be heavily rotting, with a visible tear in the legs. In the show, Gaira has a modified Godzilla roar, with some of his original vocalizations mixed in.

To celebrate the anniversary of both Ike! Greenman and Go! Godman, Toho brought back Gaira in 2008 to fight Godman in the crossover film. The suit looks exactly like the original, except slightly bulkier.

TitanollanteFile added by Titanollante
Gaira made his comic debut in Godzilla: Rulers of Earth #5. Gaira appeared for the first time and rampaged years ago, but he was captured. He later was freed by Lucy Casprell so that he could fight Varan. At first, Gaira overpowers Varan. However, when Varan retreats to the ocean, Gaira grabs his tail and does not let go until he disappears into the sea along with Varan. Before disappearing, he saw his 'brother', Sanda, reaching out to him.
