Micro Super Battle: Godzilla vs. Gigamoth
History[edit | edit source]
Even before the release of Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, Toho was considering options for their next film. One of the projects they considered was the ambitious Micro Super Battle: Godzilla vs. Gigamoth, which was the first project involving a team of humans being injected inside of Godzilla, as well as the first to feature the monsters Gigamoth and Mechani-Kong. Eventually, the project split into two divergent paths: the first path retained the idea of humans being injected into Godzilla and Godzilla doing battle with Mechani-Kong, while the second focused on Godzilla battling Gigamoth. Ultimately, Toho chose to follow the second path, which resulted in the 1992 film Godzilla vs. Mothra.
Plot[edit | edit source]
Godzilla comes ashore in the United States, with the nation's military constructing the giant robot gorilla called Mechani-Kong to battle him. Mechani-Kong utilizes its injectors to send a team of humans inside of Godzilla's body and try to shut down his nuclear reactor. However, radiation leaking from Mechani-Kong mutates the creature known as Gigamoth, which enters the fray as well. Now, as the humans try to battle Godzilla from the inside, Mechani-Kong, Gigamoth and Godzilla engage in a three-way battle from the outside.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- At least two different concepts for Gigamoth exist for this film. One, designated as "Gigamoth B Type" in the book Heisei Godzilla Perfection, resembles a giant larva, while the other, "Gigamoth C Type", resembles a gigantic bird rather than a moth. It is possible that "Gigamoth" was simply a placeholder name given to Godzilla's primary opponent in the film, or that multiple creatures called Gigamoth were to battle Godzilla in the film.
