Origins[]

Gigan was a ancient monster discovered in hibernation on the seabed off the coast of Siberia. Gigan was modified using Exif and Bilusaludo technology and gradually converted into a ancient cybernetic biological weapon used was sent to Earth by the Xiliens and against Godzilla.

History[]

Anicent[]

King Ghidorah and Gigan arrived and attacked the Earth 13,000 B.C However Gigan had fought and defeated by Dagon until he decided to retreated after the defeat of King Ghidorah, known as Cretaceous Ghidorah. Gigan had his head blown off by Godzilla’s atomic breath


Powers and Abilities []

Antigravity Flight[]

Gigan is capable of flying at speeds of up to Mach 3 while in Earth's atmosphere and Mach 400 while in the realm of space.

Hooked Appendages[]

Gigan's forelimbs sport a pair of large metal hooks, which in the Showa series are either called Hammer Hands ] or Hammer-claw Hands. they are instead referred to as Hammerclaws. Gigan uses his Hammer Hands to batter and stab opponents. the tips of Gigan's Hammer Hands were fitted with explosive charges which detonate on contact with an enemy, though they only have one use each.

Bloody Chainsaws[]

Following his initial defeat by the recently awakened Godzilla in B.C Gigan's Bloody Triggers are replaced by double-pronged chainsaws, appropriately dubbed Bloody Chainsaws .Gigan uses these offensively to slash Godzilla's chest and slice part of Dagon’s skin off.

Buzzsaw[]

Gigan has a buzzsaw-like rotating disc built into his abdominal area made of an unknown alien alloy, granting it considerable durability and sharpness.

Laser[]

In addition to his melee weapons, the Showa Gigan was depicted as having a beam aperture set into his forehead just above his visor. Official art would frequently depict him as firing a laser from this device, although he was never shown to actually do so on film. However, after Godzilla heaves a rock at Gigan's face, the laser device in Gigan's forehead gives off a quick flash of light, possibly short-circuiting.

Bladed Slicer[]

After being repaired and upgraded following his initial fight Gigan displayed the ability to fire guided razor discs called Bladed Slicers  from two hidden slots in his upper torso which were able to boomerang back for a second attempt if they initially missed their target. Doing so, however, was risky as if they missed the target once again, Gigan would find himself right in the path of his own attack; which ultimately decapitated him and allowed Mothra to defeat him.

  • Gigan's Bladed Slicers boomerang back to their source, inadvertently slicing his head off 
  • Gigan is decapitated by his own Bladed Slicers

Tail[]

Gigan's tail is tipped with a metal spike. Though he never uses it in combat in the Showa series, he uses it to attack Mothra. In this episode, his tail spike is multi-pronged, and Gigan can extend his tail into the air to stab prey like a scorpion.

Flamethrower[]

Gigan has the ability to spew flames from his mouth.

Teleportation[]

Gigan has the ability to instantaneously teleport across short distances in place of flying. This allows him to outflank and surprise enemy monsters.
