Godzilla vs. Berserk (ゴジラVSベルサーク,   Gojira buiesu Berusaaku) is an unmade 1993 Godzilla Film.

History

This early proposal for what would ultimately becomem Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II was submitted as a 14-page draft by anime designer Yutaka Izubuchi. In this story, Mechagodzilla is a metallic alien organism called Berserk, which evolves into a bulbous mass of machinery and wires before finally becoming a mechanical doppelganger of Godzilla himself. This draft also includes the Teiyo Group, a corporation introduced in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, which constructs the Super X3 to combat Godzilla and Berserk.[1][2] This idea was eventually discarded, as Toho decided to go in a different direction and reinvent Mechagodzilla as a human-constructed mech designed to defend mankind from Godzilla. However, some elements from Godzilla vs. Berserk would appear in later projects, such as the idea of the Super X3, which was included in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, and an alien organism attempting to take the form of Godzilla, which was the basic premise of the monster Orga from Godzilla 2000: Millennium.

Plot

A metallic lifeform from outer space arrives on Earth in a meteor, after which it begins growing by assimilating metal into itself. As it reaches colossal size, the metallic monstrosity, dubbed Berserk, eventually decides to take the form of Godzilla, the most powerful creature on the planet. The Japanese government contracts the Teiyo Group, run by the son of the late Yasuaki Shindo, to construct the Super X3, the third craft in the Super X line, to combat both Godzilla and the alien Mechagodzilla.[1][2]
