El Gusano Gigante is an enormous mutant worm that first appeared in episode 4 of Godzilla: The Series.


Despite El Gusano Gigante's power boost, the annelid monstrosity was soon defeated by Zilla with a blast of his atomic ray, after which it shrunk to the size of a normal worm, and disappeared. It later appeared during the Tachyon alien invasion, in the Monster Wars story arc. The gigantic worm was unleashed by the aliens to attack the city of Moscow during the battle, where the monster used its burrowing abilities to harass the Russian armed forces. When the aliens lost control of the beasts, it was killed by their capital ships in order to regain control.


El Gusano Gigante is a hitherto unknown species of worm that feeds off a rare poisonous plant which enabled it to grow to incomprehensible worm proportions. When the local government attacked with a bio-weapon filled with toxins from its food source it grew bigger and stronger. It could emit fire or toxin blasts from its mouth and also create large shockwaves by slamming its head into the ground in the Game Boy Color adaption of Monster Wars.
