Garasharp (ガラシャープ,   Garashāpu) is a cobra kaiju created for the 1991 Gamera short film, Gamera vs. Garasharp.

History

Gamera vs. Garasharp

Garasharp attacked Shinjuku in Japan, prompting Gamera to arrive and battle her. During the battle, Garasharp stuck her tongue down Gamera's throat, absorbing most of Gamera's energy which paralyzed Gamera, turning him white and ballooning Garasharp to enourmous proportions. With her newly acquired strength, Garasharp proceeded to destroy Shunjuku.

After time passes, Gamera has recovered to confront Garasharp again, this time in the suburbs of Tokyo. During their second fight, Garasharp swallowed a few explosives. Gamera used his fire on Garasharp, but again the cobra absorbed it into her mouth. The fire, however, agitated the explosives inside Garasharp's throat and as a result, she was brutally decapitated by the explosion. When two of Garasharp's offspring emerged from her body, the JSDF moved in to exterminate the small monsters. However, Gamera intervened. Landing near the baby monsters, Gamera allowed them to slither onto his back. Flying away so that the military could not harm the tiny Garasharp serpents, Gamera took them to a deserted tropical island, and proceeded to break off their horns and fangs, leaving the monsters on their new home where they wouldn't cause any further harm to humanity.

Was this supposed to be the movie but was scrapped and replaced with Gamera:Super Monster or was this an unplanned movie for 1991?

Neither, it was just part of a bonus feature for the Gamera Permanent Preservation Plan LaserDisc set.

There was a tentative plan for a 1972 Gamera, with a working title like "Gamera vs. Monster W," with the new monster having two heads.

As Astounding said, "Gamera vs. Garasharp" was put together by Nisan Takahashi and Noriaki Yuasa for the 1991 LaserDisc. They were trying to revive Gamera on the big screen and I think that was basically a proof of concept.
