Godzilla X Varan, Baragon and Anguirus: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack

In director Shusuke Kaneko's original story for the film, Godzilla X Varan, Baragon and Anguirus: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, the three Guardian Monsters who would battle Godzilla were Varan, Baragon, and Anguirus. At Toho's request, Kaneko worked the more popular monsters Mothra and King Ghidorah into the film, dropping Varan and Anguirus but retaining Baragon.

Orochi (GMK Ghidorah) = Yamata-no-Orochi/Eastern dragon

Mothra = Ho-O (*Japanese phoenix*)

Baragora (*'65 Baragon BAD, '68-'01 Baragora GOOD*) = Shisa (?/Oni-Shisa hybrid?)

Anguirus = Kirin (*dragon/unicorn hybrid*)

Varan = Oni/Eastern dragon (*Oni: based on idol, from '58 film*)

Exactly what I said when I first saw it. But I guess if Mothra were God of the Sky, Ghidorah would have no place.

Good thing Godzilla Defense Force gave her the title "Phoenix of the Sea." Which makes sense, considering the picture of her in the Guardian Monsters book portrays her with Eastern phoenix tail feathers.

She also emerged from a lake so it makes sense.

That too. (*Except there's a BIG difference between a lake and a sea. But that's just me.*)
