Gigan is one of the most requested kaiju to appear in the monsterverse, but I always thought it wouldn’t make much sense to put an alien cyborg in a grounded universe. But more recently my opinions have changed on this subject. This forum will explain what I think could be a great way to introduce Gigan in a grounded universe such as the monsterverse.

Recently I had a conversation on my other forum for Mechagodzilla about aliens joining the monsterverse with Mechagodzilla. I suggested that aliens would take Mechagodzilla, King Ghidorah, and the male Muto into space and transform them to be alien weapons. Mechagodzilla would just get some extra weapons (probably inspired by the Showa Mechagodzilla). King Ghidorah would get turned into Mecha-King Ghidorah. And the male Muto would turn into GIGAN.

Now that might seem very farfetched, but that is what I think is the best and most believable way to introduce Gigan into a realistic setting. Here are some physical elements that the male Muto and Gigan have in common.

  • The big red eye
  • Hook-like hands
  • A beak (sort of)
  • The ability to fly
  • A place for the buzzsaw in the chest (the place where the male Muto got stabbed in 2014)
  • same colors as the 2004 Gigan

Now that might not be many similarities, but with some upgrades, it might work. Now I will list some upgrades to make the male Muto truly look like Gigan. each of the upgrades will have a reason behind it. 

Btw, the aliens could also use some body parts from the female Muto to make some of these things possible (like the stronger legs).

  • Metal spikes on the head (antenna for the alien controls)
  • Metal beak and 2 claws around the mouth area (used for biting attack)
  • Metal Hooks (stronger and more painful version of the standard Muto hooks)
  • Make him stand upright (used so he can use his hooks better)
  • Shorter/stronger legs (used to stand upright)
  • Metal tail (used to stand upright)
  • Higher pitched Muto roar (to sound like Gigan's roar)
  • Metal feet (used for standing upright and to have a better balance)
  • Buzzsaw in the chest (used for up close attack)
  • Eye laser (used for long-range attack)
  • Smaller Wings and fins on his back (to more look like Gigan and so he can glide instead of flying)

I do think that each monster that gets up ducted by the aliens, would be controlled by the aliens remotely. this would give each monster (robot or not) to have their own personality. I do want the alien that controllers Gigan to have the same personality as Gigan from the Showa/millennium series. That way Gigan will still get his personality. I want him to be very violent, but a coward and overconfident. At some point I want Gigan to try and flee when the battle turns against him and fail.

This version of Gigan would be pretty short (about 80 meters), but he could be agiler this way.

This is the end of this forum. yes I know it was very short, but I don’t have anything else to say here. I might make a forum for aliens in the monsterverse by themselves. If you have any theories for Gigan in the monsterverse, please leave it in the comment section. Any opinion is welcome.

note: sorry for the small text at some point, but I don't know how to fix that.

Thank you so much. If the monsterverse ever has some sort of Destroy all monsters movie, I am hoping that it will be a war between earth kaiju and cyborg kaiju (off course Gigan would be part of this). Along with Gigan could be Mechagodzilla, Mecha-King Ghidorah and some new cyborg kaiju (Mecha-Mothra or Mecha-Skullcrawler?)

So my idea of how to bring Gigan into the monsterverse is slightly different. As a matter of fact i'm doing an Audio Drama series on it calle Project G.I.G.A.N.

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Wow, I really like your take on a Monsterverse version of Gigan. I really like the way you made Gigan an alien and a human construct at the same time. Using the name Gigan as a codename and making the monster named after that is very cool as well.

After hearing that Michael Dougherty has an interest in possibly bringing Gigan to the Monsterverse in a possible Godzilla 3, I would love to see this origin of yours included in that movie.

My origin really would fit more in a Destroy all monsters type of movie.

I'd like Kumonga to be in the MV...they have the new spider kaiju, but how about Kumo? They could have both.
