Micro Super Battle: Godzilla vs. Gigamoth (ミクロスーパーバトル ゴジラVSギガモス,   Mikuro Supā Batoru Gojira tai Gigamosu) is an unmade 1991-1992 Godzilla film.


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.[1]


The United States military builds the giant robot gorilla called Mechani-Kong to battle Godzilla. During its construction, a radiation leak caused by an experimental error gives birth to a creature known as Gigamoth, which the military traps in an attempt to cover up the situation. When Godzilla comes ashore one day, Mechani-Kong utilizes its injectors to send a team of humans inside of Godzilla's body and try to shut down his nuclear reactor. As the humans try to battle Godzilla from the inside, Mechani-Kong, Godzilla, and an escaped Gigamoth engage in a three-way fray from the outside.[1]



  • Three distinct concepts for Gigamoth were separately proposed for Micro Super Battle: Godzilla vs. Gigamoth. The first, "Gigamoth A-Type", was designed by Shinji Nishikawa and was modeled after the idea of an adult Meganulon; that is, a giant dragonfly. (This was almost a full decade before the conception of Megaguirus and Meganula.) The second and third designs, referred to as Gigamoth "B-Type" and "C-Type" respectively in the book Heisei Godzilla Perfection, were drawn by Minoru Yoshida. The B-Type is labeled as the "terrestrial insect-type" and resembles a giant larva, while the C-Type which is called the "animal-type" resembles a gigantic prehistoric bird rather than a moth.[1]
