''Gladiator'', also known as ''Great Guiranos'' or 黄金の城 (''Ougon no Shiro'', translated as ''Castle of Gold''), is a 1986 BeatEmUp ArcadeGame. It was developed by Allumer, Ltd. and published by Taito.

Playing as a knight or gladiator named Great Guaranos/Guiranos, you plod through four stages on a quest for treasure. Of course, you'll have to go through a lot of traps and guardians before you can get it!

The game has a 1992 sequel titled ''VideoGame/{{Blandia}}''.

Should not be confused with the film ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'', even if it features gladiator fights.

!!This VideoGame contains examples of:
* ClothingDamage: For both the player and his opponents, the first hit on an area removes the armor. The second hit kills. Against the sole female opponent, in the U.S. version you can get her down to a bikini. In the Japanese version, you can remove everything above the waist.
* LetsPlay: Les Lumens on YouTube has a very well done playthrough of this game.
* ScoringPoints: Getting items and killing enemies will get you points. Defending by striking incoming projectiles rather than blocking with the shield nets more points.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: The player character's name is either Guaranos or Guiranos.
