"Gigan, Rise!" (ガイガン起動 (きどう)ーっ!の (まき),   Gaigan Kidō no Maki, lit. "Volume of: Gigan, Rise!") is the third episode of the second season of Godziban, as well as the 24th episode overall and the first installment of its Little and Gigan: The Dangerous Duo segment. Toho's Godzilla Channel uploaded it to YouTube on May 15, 2020, with an English-subtitled version on the GODZILLA OFFICIAL by TOHO channel following on February 4, 2022.


Still trapped underground, Gigan questions whether he will ever escape, lamenting that his powers are neutralized by dark and closed spaces. Little accidentally exposes him to sunlight while digging, and he dramatically emerges. When Little asks if they can train together and shakes his claw, Gigan throws him off, which he again assumes marks the start of the training. Gigan believes he doesn't need to get stronger, though Little points out how easily Godzilla-kun defeated him and suggests his willpower is lacking, emotionally devastating him. To train Gigan's endurance, Little introduces him to a special technique: tickling him with a feather duster. The cyborg struggles to remain still in the face of this assault as Grandpa Hedo and Young Hedo look on. Gigan finally kicks Little away, who declares that he has lost and invites Gigan to tickle him back. Gigan tries, but to no effect. Little renews tickling him and Godzilla-kun arrives on the scene just in time to watch Gigan smack his younger brother. Gigan insists he is the one being bullied and prepares to challenge him, but Godzilla-kun reveals a gigantic feather duster attached to his tail and chases him around.
