Gabara is the "bully" monster to Minya in Godzilla's Revenge. Young Ichiro, who also has a bully named Gabara, visits Minya on Monster Island in his imagination throughout the whole movie (one of the reasons why Godzilla's Revenge is considered the worst Godzilla movie ever made, next to Godzilla '98). One of the questions raised by Godzilla fans is: "Does Gabara really exist, or does he exist only in Ichiro's imagination?" Minya is always afraid to fight Gabara, but Godzilla, Minya's father, teaches him how to fight. Minya gains courage and confronts Gabara with confidence. Godzilla then comes along and gives Gabara a final beating. Gabara retreats to the woods and never challenges Minya again.
