  • Gigan (ガイガン Gaigan) is an alien cyborg kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 1972 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Gigan. In the Showa series, Gigan is a type of space dinosaur that was transformed into a cyborg by the M Space Hunter Nebula Aliens in order to be used in their attempted invasion of Earth. He is often considered to be Godzilla's most brutal foe during the Showa era and was the first kaiju to make the Monster King visibly bleed. In Godzilla: Final Wars, Gigan is an ancient cybernetic monster that was sent to Earth by the Xiliens thousands of years ago, where he was defeated by Mothra and subsequently mummified. In the year 20XX, Gigan's mummified corpse was discovered by the Earth Defense Force, and the monster was later reactivated by X during the Xiliens' invasion, during which time he encountered and fought Godzilla but was quickly defeated. After receiving additional enhancements, he was sent out again to assist Monster X in the final confrontation against Godzilla, however Mothra arrived to Godzilla's aid. Gigan fought Mothra once more, however the two were killed in Mothra's suicide attack.
