Godzilla X Varan, Baragon and Anguirus: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (ゴジラ X バラン・バラゴン・アンギラス 大怪獣総攻撃,   Gojira ekkusu Baran, Baragon, Angirasu: Daikaijū Sōkōgeki?) is an unmade 2001 Godzilla film.


Plot

In 1954, a giant monster called Godzilla attacked Tokyo and nearly destroyed it. However, a mad scientist created a weapon and apparently killed him.

Then, in 2001, the monster returns to ravage Japan, revived by the vengeful restless souls of those killed by the Japanese military during World War II. As a result, the three Guardian Monsters: Varan, the God of the Sky, Anguirus, the God of the Sea, and Baragon, the God of Earth, are awakened to fight him.

But at the end, the three Guardian Monsters are no match for Godzilla's power, and soon all are defeated. However, after they are defeated, their spirits paralyze Godzilla and allow the J.S.D.F. to open a wound on Godzilla's shoulder, causing him to destroy himself with his own atomic breath.

Trivia

  • Ultimately in the finished film, Anguirus and Varan were replaced by King Ghidorah and Mothra, respectively, because those monsters were more popular and marketable. However, Varan's facial fins were added to King Ghidorah's faces as a tribute to the monster.
    • This would also explain why King Ghidorah and Mothra were smaller and weaker than usual, as they were originally intended to be monsters that are normally much weaker than Godzilla.
  • The concept of Anguirus in this film later inspired his Final Wars design.
  • Baragon appears in the name of the film in this draft, but in the final one he doesn't, as his role is very minor. It is possible that in this version of the film, he was to survive his fight with Godzilla and later join Anguirus and Varan in the film's climax.
  • It is unknown how the Gotengo was to fit into this film, however it is possible that it was to fill the role of the Satsuma and drill into Godzilla's shoulder instead of the D-03 Missile.
