Reigon: Devil of the Seabed (海底の魔王 レイゴン,   Kaitei no Maō Reigon) is an unmade 1966 Nikkatsu film, and a precursor to Gappa.


Reigon was the fourth and final unmade film in a series of concepts Nikkatsu Company had before making Gappa.[1][2][3]

Reigon got the furthest into the development out of the four scrapped projects, receiving a plot synopsis, speculative screenplay, and kaiju ideas.

Planning was done by Hideo Kodama and the draft was written by Shunichi Yukimuro and Ryuzo Nakanishi.


A giant manta ray dubbed "Reigon" appears one day and wreaks havoc across the world--and then fights a giant iguana.
