Gerogero is a boss in Final Fantasy VIII. It is the true form of the Fake President Deling. Once the party has dealt enough damage to the Fake President, he will collapse on the ground and the hideously deformed monster will emerge.
As an undead enemy Gerogero takes on the properties innate to all undead units, namely taking half damage from physical attacks, being weak to Fire and Holy, being immune to Death and Doom and dying instantly from resurrecting abilities and items.
Gerogero uses plenty of status ailment attacks, and inflicts the party with statuses like Silence and Berserk. Brrawghh! is a no-element class magical attack that damages a target and also may inflicts Slow, Curse, and Blind.
Gerogero is undead, and therefore Cure and Life spells hurt it, but throwing a Phoenix Down at it will kill him instantly. The Demi spell can also be used to deal significant damage, should the player opt not to kill him with revival.

In the original Japanese version, Gerogero's organs were red. The change to blue was probably made due to censoring, as the red color makes the organs protruding from the creature look far more real. This version of Gerogero can also be seen in both the BradyGames and Piggyback Interactive official strategy guides for Final Fantasy VIII, as well as Final Fantasy Record Keeper.
Gerogero's English name may come from the Japanese word gero.Gero is Japanese for "vomit."
It is named "Namtal Utoku" in the Italian version of the game.
In the French version, it is named "Écorché", which means "flayed".
