The ShodaiGaru (初代ガル,   ShodaiGaru?) is the Garu Garu puppet design used in the 1996 and 1997 Toho films, Rebirth of Mothra and Rebirth of Mothra II.


Name

The ShodaiGaru's name comes from shodai (初代?), meaning first generation, and Garu, which comes from Garu Garu's name.

In Rebirth of Mothra II, the KaiteiGaru's name comes from kaitei (海底?), meaning undersea, which comes from the film's Japanese title, and Garu, which comes from Garu Garu's name.

Detail

In comparison to the RaishuGaru puppet, the ShodaiGaru is more organic in design. It has a beige underbelly and wings. Two puppets were made, with one representing Garu Garu after it lost its disguise. In Rebirth of Mothra II, the first puppet was modified to look more robotic, with its wings being supported by pistons, and weapons being attached to its side. This puppet is also known as the KaiteiGaru (海底ガル,   KaiteiGaru?) in Rebirth of Mothra II.
