In my dictionaries and on the Internet, the only meaning I found for ギョグ was "fishing gear", but in the context of the text I have been translating it does not make sense. The context is: two monsters and a boy fell to the ground.

ガ  ガア!?

Thud, Thuud!!




Fishing gear!?

  • It's a kind of "creative" onomatopoeia. Maybe a surprise, a groan or a sound some creature makes. Mar 11 '16 at 8:22

It, as well as ガア, shoud be just a screech of that monster. ギョグ is not common, but there is no rule on how imaginary monsters should cry.

    I think it could be "Yelp" for a reaction of surprise and/or fear.
