I think that it would be a bit more interesting because those are cool monsters that always get WAY overlooked.

I was pretty disappointed when Varan wasn't in the movie cause he's one of my favorite monsters. But Mothra and Ghidorah do fit in with the mythological theme the movie gave. Ghidorah's design bares some resemblance to Yamata no Orochi in the Japanese myths (an evil 8 headed and tailed dragon slain by Susanoo) and Mothra has always been regarded as a deity in the Godzilla series. I still wish that they put Varan in the movie since Baragon seems really weak to me.

Personally, with the way Godzilla was portrayed, Ghidorah and Mothra were a better match for Godzilla. I agree wholeheartedly that both monsters have been overused but the idea of having three similar monsters go against Godzilla seems a bit dull. There wouldn't be enough variety. I was a bit disappointed, however, at how much weaker Ghidorah was in GMK. It was a bit insulting if you ask me.

Well, Ghidorah is one of my favorite kaiju, so seeing him as a hero was nice.
But, if they had put Varan in GMK, I suppose that would been a legitimate reason to put him in [i]Godzilla: Unleashed[/i].

They chose Varan, Anguirus, and Baragon because they were weak, and they wanted this Godzilla to look strong. When Toho told them to replace Varan, and Anguirus with Mothra, and Ghidorah they had to power two of the strongest monsters down, and power Godzilla up. It was just to make this incarnation stronger. I have to admit though, it was kind of insulting to undermine these characters.

Being one of my favorite Godzilla movies, I do agree that [i]GMK[/i] might've retained some uniqueness by having Varan and Angirus in the film. But as it stands it doesn't bother me like most.
Remember, [i]Godzilla x Megaguirus[/i] flopped big time at the box office in 2000. It's a miracle Toho was going to even make another movie. Although Kaneko wanted Varan and Angirus, he did agree that the popularity of King Ghidorah and Mothra are what helped make it a success. It sounds like a sell-out comment, but the truth is Toho needed to sell tickets and the Godzilla 2000 design with new/original monsters weren't bringing in audiences. [i]GMK[/i] was a hit though.
That said, it helps to look at King Ghidorah and Mothra as "actors" in their own right. At this point King Ghidorah and Mothra's back stories have been re-written and re-made so many times it doesn't even faze me that their incarnations in [i]GMK[/i] were so different. And for the record, I [b]love[/b] King Ghidorah's overall design in the film.

No, I disagree. These monsters would have made poor choices to fight Godzilla. Anguiras cannot fight, he's always getting beat up and Varan is not well known. He doesn't look like he would be a challenge. Baragon was the better choice, but unfortunately, the director did away with his fire breathing powers which made him vulnerable. Maybe King Seesar would have been a better choice.

keep ghidorah replace mothra with varan

I think they should have used any of those other monsters over "King Ghidorah" mainly cause he's a bad monster. I never understood some peoples like for "GMK" cause they had one of "Godzilla's" biggest enemies as a hero. that's just wrong! that is one of the many reasons why i have never liked "GMK"!
