In Destroy All Monsters, the SoshingekiAngira's name comes from the film's Japanese title, specifically sōshingeki (総進撃?), meaning attack of the marching [monsters], and Angira, which comes from Anguirus's Japanese name, Angirasu (アンギラス?).
Compared to the previous Anguirus design, the SoshingekiAngira suit has a wider, more muscular neck. The eyes are larger, giving Anguirus a more heroic appearance, just like the Godzilla it appeared alongside. Except for a pair of fangs, its teeth are shorter than its predecessor's. The carapace, which no longer moves independently of the rest of the suit, is lined with uneven rows of spikes.
This suit was also used for Anguirus' brief appearance in the opening of Godzilla vs. Megalon. The suit's fangs were removed for its appearance in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla. This suit is also known as the GiganAngira (ガイガンアンギラ?) in Godzilla vs. Gigan, the MegaroAngira (メガロアンギラ?) in Godzilla vs. Megalon, and the MekaAngira (メカアンギラ?) in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla.
