Subtitle: Sea Monster (海怪獣, Umi Kaijū)
- Poison Spines: The barb-like spines covering Gesura’s body are all capable of generating a poison capable of killing a man in just a few seconds.
Gesura's head fin is the source of his poisonous powers. Removing it causes great harm to Gesura.
Usually an ocean dweller, Gesura began to come ashore in search of his favorite snack; Cacao beans. The Science Patrol soon arrived, but the monster quickly returned to the ocean. Some time later, the monster came shore once more in search of food, and once more, he was gone by the time the Science Patrol got there. The monster next appeared at a warehouse, smashing through it because some theives shot at it. Hayata then appeared, and transformed into Ultraman. Gesura attacked first, but Ultraman quickly gained the upperhand, tossing the monster every which way, eventually landing both in the water. Ultraman then ripped off Gesura's fin, and afterward, the monster died.
- Suit actor: Teruo Aragaki
- Gesura is known for being created from a modifyed Peter suit. There is some speculation on Tsuburaya's behalf that Gesura is a more mature form of what Peter could be. This is hinted by the fact that Gesura's design was slightly influenced by the toho monster, Mothra's Larva form.
- Gesura's name is taken from the term "Sewage," hence his powers of poison.
- Gesura's roar is given to the Toho monster, Minya for his appearance in Go! Greenman!
