Hostile aliens resurrect a dinosaur being dug up by American archeologists in South Korea, they then send it to multiple cities under their control to cause damage and shrug off helicopters, jets, and virtually anything the military has to throw at it.


Yonggary (Reptilian) is a brown/blue dinosaur-like creature with a single small horn on the tip of its snout, brown eyes, a tri-horn crown, and several rows of scutes running down its back.
