Maguma (マグマ?) is a giant walrus kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 1962 Toho film, Gorath.


Name

Maguma's name literally means "magma", which could be a reference to how Maguma is weak to high temperatures.

Appearance

Maguma looks like a giant brown walrus with yellow eyes, pale tusks, smooth skin, and no visible hair. Maguma also lacks a tail.

History

Showa Series

Gorath

Maguma first appeared when it was awakened by missile fire at the North Pole. Maguma attacked the base and it went home to its valley. A VTOL aircraft was sent to kill Maguma, and it buried it under a pile of rocks. Maguma broke out of the rocks and attacked again. The aircraft attacked Maguma with energy beams, killing it.

Roar

Maguma's roar was an elephant trumpeting sound, but was deepened and slowed down. Maguma's roar was later used for the Ultraman 80 kaiju, Salamandora.

Trivia

  • Just like Ebirah, Maguma was originally of Godzilla's allies for Destroy All Monsters, but was replaced by Gorosaurus, Minilla and Anguirus.
  • It is thought that Tsuburaya Productions, who last used the suit, damaged it beyond repair when Maguma was used as the Ultra Q monster Tadora.
