User:Kamikemono/Sandbox/Godzilla: Great Naval Battle
With the usage of limited nuclear weapons in Middle Eastern conflicts, Godzilla makes landfall, attracted to the multiple sources of radiation. To make matters worse, three other monsters, also former animals mutated into monstrosities from nuclear energy, appear in multiple countries, and are lead by one common goal: gaining the radiation emitting from Godzilla. Aware of the oncoming devastation, G-Force seeks to strike back with all new weapons from both them and the JSDF. One of which includes a new, serpentine version of Mechagodzilla, specifically built for underwater battles.
After the completion of Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla, Koichi Kawakita held a "Proposal Tournament" among assistant directors of his staff group. One member, Yosuke Nakano (better known as his professional name, Yo★Nakano), proposed a story taking full advantage of of the ocean, a setting mostly only used for the first half of Godzilla movies. The story as a whole would be about Godzilla and three other monsters; none of them named, but sharing a similar origin with the King of Monsters by being once normal creatures mutated by mankind's arrogance. They were all based on rare sea creatures such as sea scorpions and ammonites, and were said to have "low intelligence". Combating the kaiju were soldiers from all around the world, and an aquatic variant of Mechagodzilla, who had an appearance akin to sea serpents of ancient mythology. Alas, despite the unique focus of the ocean and grand scale, Great Naval Battle never saw the light of day.
- Minor details of this story can be found in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah Perfection from 2017.
- Most of the info from this project came from Yo★Nakano himself in an interview with Toho Kingdom. While he still seemed quite fond of the project, after further reflection, he concluded the interview by saying "This movie cost too much."
