Like some other Toho monster stars, Gorosaurus first appeared in a non-Godzilla film. In King Kong Escapes, Gorosaurus was discovered on Mondo Island by Lieutenant Susan Watson. Gorosaurus was attacked and killed by (Toho's) King Kong. Gorosaurus is a theropod dinosaur, who, like Angilas and Rodan, does not have any energy weapons and must rely on his own natural abilities. Gorosaurus has sharp claws and teeth, which he uses often. Gorosaurus also has a brutal kick, where he jumps up, balances on his tail, and smacks his opponent with his feet. Gorosaurus used his awesome kick in his first Godzilla movie, Destroy All Monsters, against King Ghidorah (see picture to the right).

In Destroy All Monsters, Gorosaurus, along with the rest of the world's monsters, was moved to Monsterland where he couldn't escape and attack civilization. Gorosaurus later was put under the control of the Kilaaks, and attacked Paris, destroying the Arc de Triompe (Baragon though was given the blame). After Earth regained control of the monsters Gorosaurus played a major role in the great monster brawl against King Ghidorah on Mount Fuji. He, along with Godzilla, Angilas, and Minya delivered the final blows to King Ghidorah, and saving the Earth from the evil Kilaaks.

Gorosaurus' last Godzilla movie appearance was in Godzilla's Revenge, when Ichiro explores Monster Island for the first time. Gorosaurus, though, existed only in Ichiro's imagination at the time.
