Moguera (モゲラ, Mogera) is a giant robot mole used by the Mysterian aliens to conquer the Earth.


Showa EraEdit

The MysteriansEdit

Moguera was sent to Earth by the Mysterians to conquer it. It first arrived in a small Japanese village, which it destroyed. Moguera continued to rampage through the countryside, shrugging off all attacks by the military. The military eventually rigged a bridge with explosive charges and waited for Moguera to cross it. When Moguera tried to cross the bridge, the charges were detonated and Moguera fell into a ravine below and exploded.

Later, when the Mysterians had begun their full invasion of Earth, they unleashed a second Moguera to attack the Earth Defense Force's units. Moguera burrowed up from underneath a Markalite cannon, which fell on top of it and destroyed it.


Moguera is designed as a war machine, boasting impressive firepower and thick armor, but slow movement. Moguera can emit high temperature from its body, fire destructive laser beams from its eyes, and burrow underground.


  • Moguera was the first robot monster to appear in any of Toho's films.
  • Moguera reappeared in the 1988 video game Godzilla: Monster of Monsters! for the Nintendo Entertainment System as a boss that can be fought by Godzilla and Mothra. Moguera also made an appearance in the 1997 television series Godzilla Island, under the name "Proto-Moguera".
  • Moguera directly inspired another monster, M.O.G.U.E.R.A., which fought alongside Godzilla in the 1994 film Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla.
