The second movie in the original '''{{Gamera}}''' series, and easily the most adult, ''Gamera vs. Barugon'' was created as an A-list picture by Daei studios after the success of ''Film/GiantMonsterGamera''. It was released in 1966. It stars Kojiro Hongo in his first Gamera film, and it has a music score by Chuji Kinoshita. Originally envisioned as a movie where a race of aliens with freezing technology take over the Earth before Gamera escapes the rocket and returns, the freezing powers were eventually given to the monster Barugon after some rewrites. This film is the most comparable to the Godzilla series, as it is the only film in the Showa era which lacks a child among the cast. It (arguably) also has two of the most realistic human brawls ever seen in a movie. Also unlike the other films in the series, ''Gamera vs. Barugon'' was directed by Shigeo Tanaka, with Noriaki Yuasa helming only the special effects.
