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.

@riggzamortis86 Do you mean like Monster X's first appearance in Final Wars? (Remember the meteor?)


TitanosaurusMember667 XPApr-13-2018 11:47 AM

^No. I just want more diversified origins and first appearances in the Monster Verse. Im saying that since we have The MUTO's coming from a skeletal monster from under the ground, the skull crawlers coming from under the ground, and now King Ghidorah(although his origin may or may not come from space and simply trapped underground for millions of years) emerging from under the ground in this Monsterverse, it seems like Legendary has the same trope following in the appearances of the monsters in these films. That the monsters all seem to come from under the ground. I would like to see a little more creativity in this universe of monsters. Toho had so many monsters that most of them had a pretty cool way to introduce the monster.  

To feature Gigan coming up from some kind or geological dig or something like simply emerging from under the ground would be to simple since all the other monsters seem to have a similar appearance or origin. Since Gigan is a cyborg, Legendary would have to explain the technology behind such a monster. Why or how is it a cyborg monster, and why is coming from underneath the surface (had to change it up there)?

Now Im just going with the forum topic here. Having Gigan become a Muto monster cyborg made with alien technology does make a Godzilla fans mouth water. There are a million other ways to introduce this character, but I like this one a lot hence why Im sticking with it soo much. Its creative and reconnects the first film and makes the first film relevant again after 6 years or more. It gives us a sight of Gigan that we have never seen before. Gigan always just shows up to f### **** up but we never know what Gigan was before he became a cyborg monster.




TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-13-2018 2:17 PM

Actually, you have a good point. I feel like there should be a Gigan origin movie.


TitanosaurusMember667 XPApr-13-2018 2:28 PM

^I wouldnt mind that. If the Monsterverse takes anything from the marvel universe, I would love to see something like that either in a movie or show.



UnknownMember100 XPApr-13-2018 4:34 PM

I think this is a good way to introduce Gigan into the Monster-verse. Good job.

Gigan movie would not work. it wouldn't even make much money.

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


TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-13-2018 7:58 PM

Unless they added a new monster to fight him in order to injure or kill him so that he can become a cyborg.


TitanosaurusMember567 XPApr-14-2018 10:27 AMTeam Mothra

even though I would love to see a modern Gigan solo movie, I don't think it would work. I don't think it works because it would most likely be a giant setup movie. I feel that a movie like this would just be a part 1 of a Godzilla movie with Gigan as the villain in part 2. Gigan is so simple to explain, that I could not imagine an entire movie with him as the main monster.

this especially doesn't work in the monsterverse, seeing as legendary has to put a lot of money in such a movie which they can't just throw out of the window. why not just make a Godzilla movie with Gigan as the villain. there are many other monsters that can have a successful solo movie in the monsterverse that wouldn't be a just a setup. for example Rodan, King Ghidorah (depends on his origin in 2019) and Mothra. a monster that I would love to see get a solo movie is king caesar (on which I am writing a forum for right now). I do think Gigan would be in a "destroy all monsters" type movie with Gigan as one of the final monsters of the series (with my muto Gigan theory maybe?).

I would love to see someone make a fanfiction for a Gigan solo movie. I am interested to see what people can come up with.

Long live the king...


UnknownMember100 XPApr-14-2018 3:58 PM

This is my idea for what a Solo Gigan film in the monsterverse could be like: Stock footage from when Godzilla killed the Male Muto plays. Cut to 10 years later where it shows Monarch examining the body. Monarch finds out by listening to its heartbeat that the Muto is still alive, but barely and is comatose. Monarch starts making some modifications to turn it into an anti kaiju weapon. they code name the project "Project: Gigan." cut to 5 years later and they have pretty much finished modifying the Muto. A new kaiju emerges from Loch ness known as Titanosaurus. Monarch sees this as an opportunity to test their new weapon. They bring Gigan to the area and the two monsters battle it out. but something happens during the fight... Titanosaurus breaks the device Monarch used to control Gigan and he goes haywire. he fires a laser beam at Titanosaurus and lets out a blood curdling roar.  Gigan cuts Titanosaurus' head off with his Claw and starts rampaging through Ireland. He cuts a building in half and fires his laser beam at another. Monarch end up deciding that they need to fight fire with fire and start working on a super weapon to destroy him. They dub this weapon "the Oxygen Destroyer" and plan to lure Gigan to sea faraway and detonate it. they end up luring him by having the navy provoke him. the plan works and Gigan ends up following the ships only to destroy nearly all of them. the last ship is barely dodging Gigan's laser beam or his hook hands until finally they lure him far enough away and detonate the Bomb decaying all life currently in close proximity into skeletons. Gigan was finally killed, but at the cost of nearly half a city, several military ships, and millions of lifeforms in the ocean depths. Destroyah also makes an appearance after the end credits.

TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-14-2018 6:10 PM

Sounds like a good movie. Just don't see Titanosaurus appearing in the Monsterverse is all.


TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-14-2018 6:12 PM

Also, can someone please check this forum (what's your favorite jaeger?) ? It doesn't work for me.


TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-14-2018 6:16 PM

Also also (sorry if I am saying too much), @Glitchgaming9578, what happened to this forum (What could the next phase in the Monsterverse be?) ?


TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-14-2018 7:05 PM

@KaijuWorld Can you make a forum on how Gorosaurus can fit into the Monsterverse? Here is a line I found on to help you get started on (and possibly mention if you make the forum [also mention me, if you want] ). Here's the line: "Unlike its smaller brethren, this creature dragged its tail across the ground in order to remain balanced due to its utterly gigantic size." You're welcome.


UnknownMember100 XPApr-14-2018 7:14 PM

I'm afraid I don't know what happened to the forum What could the next phase in the Monsterverse be?

"And now I Have become death....the destroyer of worlds"


TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-14-2018 7:42 PM

But I thought you were the one that created it. Or was I thinking of another member? Idk.


TitanosaurusMember567 XPApr-15-2018 4:52 AMTeam Mothra


I am impressed. That sound like a great movie. Although I would let him survive to appear in the other movie, I would definitely go and watch that. I like how you made Titanosaurus the loch ness monster in this as well. Although I would love to see Gigan be an alien invader again than a human construct, if the monsterverse wants to ignore aliens in general, this could work as well.


I can definitely do a forum about Gorosaurus. He is one of the few Kong enemies and definitely fits in the monsterverse. The only problem is that I have to be very creative with him seeing as I don’t want him to feel the same as the skull crawlers. I might do him first after I am done with my king Caesar forum. After that will likely be Biollante or an other monster.

Btw, no worries, I will mention your name in the forum if I ever make one. If I forget to mention you, please comment and I will edit it so your name is there.

Long live the king...


Mothra LarvaeMember34 XPApr-15-2018 6:39 AM

loving this stuff, keep on making them!


TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-16-2018 11:35 AM

@KaijuWorld Thanks, and I will leave a comment.

Mothra LarvaeMember22 XPApr-16-2018 4:00 PM

I honestly think that he could be introduced into the monsterverse by something similar to his Final Wars appearance, being an ancient kaiju created by an ancient species (maybe ancient humans) or maybe he could be introduced as a Mechagodzilla like being created by MONARCH or some other organization.


TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-16-2018 7:43 PM


Finally. Somebody gets what I was talking about. (Refer to first page to understand what I mean.)


TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-17-2018 11:51 AM

@KaijuWorld Is this forum done, or are you still going to improve on it?


TitanosaurusMember667 XPApr-17-2018 12:23 PM

give the fans what they want I guess. haha



TitanosaurusMember567 XPApr-17-2018 12:30 PMTeam Mothra

I don’t think so. I think it is pretty good as it is right now. I will be answering any questions that are asked on this forum though. depends on what you mean with “improve”. Why are you asking?

Long live the king...


TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-17-2018 12:53 PM

It's because I have come across forums like this where it seemed like a long time since the last time anyone replied to them. Just saying that it feels unsettling that a good forum is just left to waste for a long time on this website.


TitanosaurusMember567 XPApr-18-2018 6:47 AMTeam Mothra

I am continuing this conversation on this forum, so we don't have to say the same thing twice.

I have made a solution to that problem. I have now put a link to all my previous forums from the "how to include" series in each of the current forums. I have made it in a way that they are only links to the previous forums and not the forums that came after. that's why Mechagodzilla's forum doesn't have any links and why Gigan's forum doesn't have a link to king caesar. this makes it a lot easier for me, because otherwise whenever I posted a new forum, I would have to add the link from the forum to all the previous forums.

Long live the king...


TitanosaurusMember968 XPApr-18-2018 9:00 AM

Nice solution. Can't wait for the next forum.


UnknownMember100 XPMay-19-2018 9:52 PM

Also, I don't know where else to say this but I have started writing a fantasy novel called "The Rengard Epic" and was wondering if anyone here had any advice.

Mothra LarvaeMember19 XPJul-15-2018 8:39 AM

Aybe gigan could be cybernetic monster but now from earth. Alien on home planet have big monster ( like godzilla or prymitive ghidorah) and after catch or kille make if ghidorah origin are mistake and add gigan like "kaiju hunter" why becouse godzilla maybe with mothra and radon/rodan are earth defenders and if alien invade are world when defenders stand together agains invaders and aliens can send monsters like gigan , biollante or orga (why not mechagodzilla becouse j think better will be make future robot human made like hensei mecha but more advance

Gigans cool mothra worm stage. After out egg mothra full moth i like all them


BaragonMember154 XPDec-15-2018 12:01 PMTeam Godzilla

KaijuWorld you are a genius. I said to a friend of mine that the MUTO (Specifically the Male) Looks like Gigan but he said "No Way." However, I do like the idea of the aliens (Probably the Xiliens) taking the MUTOs corpse and reviving him (almost like with King Ghidorah in the heisei era where he is turned into Mecha-King Ghidorah)
