As the title asks - if you had the power to add just ONE Toho Monster to the Monsterverse, which one would you add and why?

Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah are obviously excluded since they will already be appearing in KOTM.

For me, this one's a no-brainer: Gigan! Since I was a kid, growing up on the classic Toho films, Gigan has always been that antagonist Monster who I always gravitated towards. His design and abilities really kick ass and he is one of the few Monsters to actually make Godzilla bleed. He was also my Monster of choice whenever I played Godzilla: Save the Earth for PS2. The character, origins and potential for being a badass antagonist all factor in for me choosing Gigan over all the other Toho monsters.

I would also like to direct attention to KaijuWorld's awesome topic where they discuss how Gigan COULD be included into the Monsterverse - great topic if you haven't already checked it out.

So, Gigan is my pick. What's yours?

Probably spacegodzilla as he is Godzilla second greatest enemy and deserves a second chance.

I'm just not a fan of Mechagodzilla, I think he is absurd with the context of the genre. I mean if you want a mechagodzila, fine just don't have the US Military make him, because that will break my willingness of suspension of disbelief.

My parents were both Marines.

"I'm just not a fan of Mechagodzilla, I think he is absurd with the context of the genre."

But Hollow Earth Theory is just fine. Got it. Check.

I respect that you don't like Mechagodzilla, but how is the absurd within the context of the genre? this genre is made around weird and strange ideas (a lizard with atomic breath, a 3 headed dragon from space, a giant moth seen as a god, etc.).

If you think stuff like Mechagodzilla is (in your eyes) absurd, then I think you are just in the wrong genre.

Long live the king...

As much as I'd personally want Mechagodzilla myself, the idea sounds a bit too much for the Monsterverse right now.

We didn't start with the absurdity for absurdity's sake, so we can't just be putting it in there without careful thought and planning.

That's why I think King Ghidorah's addition is so important: he's the first to test the waters of a different kind of absurdity. Make no mistake, giant monsters, Hollow Earth Theory, etc., are all absurd as a rule, but the presentation of certain elements has normalized certain facets of the absurdity to suspend disbelief.

So, with the golden emperor, he has a bit of the Monsterverse's current execution mixed with some extra absurdity; once he's been properly ingrained, things can be branched out. For this reason, I think it'd be best to introduce something like Hedorah or Destroyah as swarming creatures that form larger collectives; the former can even come from space like his original incarnation, to play up the weirdness of space like King Ghidorah.

Godzilla is not a lizard damn it! That was Zilla!

I am perfectly fine with Mechagodzilla being an alien construct or being made by Monarch just not the US Military.

The whole point of mechagodzilla is just absurd.

Oh come on. It is no more absurd than Mothra in space. It is cool and fun! Besides, there is more actual and applicable science to Mecha Godzilla than most other creatures:

Xenotaris I am perfectly fine with Mechagodzilla being an alien construct or being made by Monarch just not the US Military.

Remember how those huge humane riot control lasers worked out back in 2004ish? Yes, that was military. I could easily imagine the general military experimenting on things like that. Add some DARPA to the mix and there are lots of interesting things being developed.

Jet Jaguar, just so we can have the remix of his song.

Godzilla Generations was a beautiful game! I loved the fact that there's a laser cannon inside of Dr. Serizawa's eyepatch.

Even though it is not a monster, I would like to see a Godzilla v Marvel universe like they did in the Marvel comics #1-24 in 2006. The avengers, spiderman, agents of shield...

Mechagodzilla kind of goes against the US Military design aesthetics, the US Military have make it powerful but cheaper and much smaller mentality.

Well considering every military faction that has built a MechaGodzilla is fictional...

Ooh, either Gorosaurus or Destoroyah. Or Godzilla Junior. Or Anguirus. (GASP) NO, JET-JAGUAR!!!!!!!!! Decisions, decisions

If people weren't lazy, we wouldn't try to be efficient. If we weren't efficient, we'd never get anything done.

Mine would be either Anguirus, Destroyah, Biollante or maybe another appearance of Megaguirus.
