An ancient robotic monster that has a giant metallic body with a large ROM-Disc in the center of its head. Many archaeological digs in the deserts have uncovered them, and it was later redesigned to be more fortified and squat. They are believed to have been one of the most common weapons in the ancient wars, possibly responsible for the extermination of the Pendant tribe. There is another version of it modified for water warfare, called the Gobi Marine.

When it appears in Monster Rancher Advance 2, it is used as the template for the special Golems, and thus is listed with a ??? sub-type even though Henger appears in the game.

Etymology Edit

Named for the Gobi Desert, which covers parts of China and Mongolia.
