Films: Galgameth (1996)
Alias: Galgy, Mary
Location: Civilized Area
Height/Weight: That of a larg building.
Summary: A long time ago, Pulgasari the North Korean kaiju laid waste to the place as he chewed on metal like it was no one's business. Well, now we got our own metal-eating monster and he's...well, somewhat dignified.
History: In ye olde medieval times, the kingdom of Donnegold is in turmoil. The evil knight El El has taken over everything and has placed the blame on innocent prince Davin. All Davin has now is a broken statue of Galgameth, his family's legendary guardian. But his tears manage to bring the monster back to life...as a weak baby. But that won't last, as Galgameth grows stronger every time he eats metal. Soon, he'll be big enough to send evil packing!
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Galgameth is crucial to overthrowing El El, but he sacrifices himself to save Davin from burning in a boat at sea by submerging himself in the water he's weak to. However, after El El is defeated and the kingdom is restored, Davin manages to find Galgameth's intact statue.
Powers/Abilities: Galgameth grows in size and power as he eats metal, and can breathe fire at points.
Weakness: Large bodies of water, apparently.
Scariness Factor: 3-Galgameth isn't the most convincing kaiju we've seen, but dear God, that baby/juvenile form of his is downright creepy. It's like a Ninja Turtles costume designed by...the Ninja Turtles guys after that third film. Still, he's a good guy, so we can admire that.
Trivia: -Galgameth was played by Doug Jones, perhaps one of the most versetile creature actors of the modern day. He's starred in monstrous roles in films usually done by Guillermo del Toro, such as "Pan's Labyrinth" and "Hellboy".
-This film was also known as "The Legend of Galgameth" and "The Adventures of Galgameth".
