Gogmagog is the legendary giant of British folklore.
Gogmagog has the appearance of a giant stone statue that looks similar to a Gargoyle.
Gogmagog seems to be lacking in expressing emotions but does appear to be sentient, such as recognizing between friend or foe and working together with its allies.
The Gogmagogs were originally a group of Golems that were created by the Ancient Gods to be used as mass-produced weapons of destruction. The Gogmagogs, however, were eventually abandoned by the Ancient Gods who deactivated all of them and abandoned them in the Dimensional Gap. After hearing from Ophis who once mentioned the discovery of a giant that could move in the Dimensional Gap, Vali and his teammates set out to look for the active Gogmagog which they found during the events of Volume 6.

Gogmagog then appeared as part Vali's Team in the opening ceremony of the Azazel Cup to participate in the Rating Game World Tournament.
In Volume 24, Gogmagog was part of Vali's team for the Rating Game World Tournament against Rias' Team when it directly confronted Vasco Strada but was easily demolished by the human welding Durandul II. Gogmagog later flew to assist Fenrir who was fighting against Rias, Gogmagog then shot his beams at the building they hid Valerie, thus losing their teams healer. In the end, Vali's team emerged victorious.
Gogmagog reappeared in True Volume 4, taking part of the Rating Game in the main stage against Team Journey to the West, assisting Fenrir on chasing Yu-Long, who was fleeing from them. It fired its beam at the Dragon King, he avoided the beam by twisting his body and was later hit by Yu-Long’s green aura that made it fall into the water, but it managed to come back out to fire its beam again until it was negated by Yu-Long’s dragon aura. Gogmagog and its team were victorious after Bikou and Sha Wujing simultaneously defeated Sun Wukong.
As Team DxD began their final against the Alliance of Hell, Gogmagog fired it beams and machine guns at the artificial Devils and Grim Reappeared, defeating countless of them. Gogmagog joined Issei, Vali, and Fenrir to Hades’ temple to confront Hades and Angra Mainyu, where it became Issei’s backup in his fight against Angra by firing its rocket hand at the Evil God’s magic. When Issei started to become embarrassed of seeing Angra’s form of a naked woman, Gogmagog shielded Issei from Angra’s offensive and elemental magic circles, resulting its body being badly damaged and still continued to shield Issei until he attained his True Dragon Deification. After the defeat of Hades and Angra, Gogmagog was sent to the Grigori’s research institution to be repaired by Seekvaira Agares. Fully repaired, Gogmagog joined its team on delivering Hades and Angra to the uninhabited island of the Atlantic Ocean, but they suddenly attacked by Gvardora and Bebevu Su, who came to capture the two gods.
