Gurlugon is a giant soldier created inside a virtual reality construct. They are quite partial to books and those wearing B.D.U.s. They are very territorial. It is a parody of Godzilla, along with Genola.
Gurlugons appear in Variety missions where Solid Snake or Raiden have to sneak to the end of a stage without being seen. In these scenarios, the Soliton Radar is disabled, forcing the player to sneak past them by using their head position as a point of reference to their field of vision.
At the end of Raiden's Survival mission, he has to do battle with a Gurlugon by destroying it piece by piece.
Alternatively, Raiden can use two items to end the battle quickly:
- Lay down a book in Gurlugon's light of sight, comically giving him a huge nosebleed and making him collapse (mission success, thus clearing the mission).
- Equip the B.D.U. and the AKS-74U. By using this technique, the ending shows the Gurlugon in love (it is revealed that a pink heart pops up above the giant soldier's head) with Raiden and takes the latter for a date while mellow music is played in the background (mission failure, thus resulting in a game over).
A Gurlugon is the main focus of this side story.
