History

Denkou Choujin Gridman

Bagira

In the beginning of the episode, Takeshi Todo was humiliated when a deliveryman with fruit crashed into him. As revenge, Takeshi created Bagira to shutdown and lockup all the food plants in the city. The sudden food shortage was causing mayhem among housewives and Ippei Baba's hunger was getting troublesome. Unlike previous monsters, Bagira had a major advantage with its blades and was able to deflect Gridman's fireballs and even the Grid Beam! Ippei quickly constructed the Barrier Shield to even the battle; the Barrier Shield's shape and design was inspired by a special hotdog Ippei had been craving. Using his new sword, Gridman severed Bagira's arms, but Takeshi withdrew Bagira from battle.

Bagira was given new arms and was sent into an electronic keyboard in a music shop, but was quickly destroyed by Anosillus's beam.

Trivia
  • Bagira could be considered a homage to Alien Tsuruk from Ultraman Leo.
  • Bagira's blade arms seems to have a similar function to the stomach gorge on Bemstar because both can deflect energy based attacks.
  • Bagira and his American counterpart are one of few monsters that was created with the same purpose in Bagira and Hock's case it was to cut off the worlds food supply.
  • Bagira has a head similar to Guiron from the Gamera franchise because both have a blade on their head.
  • Bagira's overall design closely resembles Bagan, an unused monster from the Godzilla franchise, whose only appearance has been in the Super Godzilla video game for SNES.

Mecha Bagira

Bagira's data was later upgraded into Mecha Bagira (メカバギラ Meka Bagira) that Takeshi used to reanimate an ancient cadaver that was discovered by a research facility.

The corpse went on a rampage throughout the facility and went after Yuka Inoue, Daichi Sho, and Kana Baba, who were visiting at the time. Mecha Bagira's new arsenal included a boomerang on its tail and a robotic eye that allowed Mecha Bagira to target and aim its weapon with accuracy. To win the battle, Gridman used the flamethrower attack from Ippei's new Dragonic Cannon followed by the Grid Beam.
