|This article is about a/an monster in Kamen Rider, the original series.|
Yosuke Katsurajo (桂木良助 Katsurajō Yosuke), the father of Maki Katsurajo (桂木マキ Katsurajō Maki), is captured by Gelshocker and transformed by them into the monster Anemonaguar. Unlike most Gelshocker monsters, he is actively remote-controlled by General Black, while suffering immensely due to the control. After being defeated by Kamen Rider 1's Rider Point Kick, he sees his daughter Maki calling him and reverts to human form, regaining his memories and control over his own self.
Super Hero Taisen
A second Anemonaguar was part of Dai-Shocker during the "Super Hero Taisen" incident. It's visually similar to the original but sports Gelshocker's standard yellow boots unlike its original counterpart. Dai-Shocker was led by Tsukasa Kadoya/Kamen Rider Decade, rivaling Captain Marvelous/Gokai Red and Dai-Zangyack. However, Rider Hunter Silva of Dai-Zangyack and Doktor G of Dai-Shocker overthrew their respective leaders and joined forces to destroy the Kamen Riders and Super Sentai, facing off against their combined forces.
In the final battle, Anemonaguar was seen in several scenes fighting many Riders and Sentai members, specifically Mega Black, Time Green, Shishi Ranger, Battle France, Kamen Riders, and J. Anemonaguar was destroyed by Kamen Rider OOO's finishing attack with his Medajaribur, the OOO Bash, alongside Hades God Dagon, Scorpion Man, and Ghostar.

Anemonaguar is able to move swiftly underwater, bite through rocks, use the feelers for the Anemonaguar Killer Feeler Hold, and use his Anemonaguar Feeler Camouflage to teleport.
It's also able to launch a powerful poison from his back that can melt human flesh.
Behind the scenes
Anemonaguar was designed by Shotaro Ishinomori, the creator of the Kamen Rider Series, and also who made the suit for this monster.
