The MegaroGigan (メガロガイガン,   MegaroGaigan?) is the Gigan suit design used in the 1973 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Megalon, and the 1973 television series, Zone Fighter.

Name

In Godzilla vs. Megalon, the MegaroGigan's name comes from another kaiju's name, Megalon (メガロ,   Megaro?), and Gigan, which comes from Gigan's name.

In Zone Fighter, the ZoneGigan's name comes from Zone, which comes from the title of the series (流星人間ゾーン,   Ryūsei Ningen Zōn?), and Gigan, which comes from Gigan's name.

Detail

The MegaroGigan is similar to the previous Gigan design, but the suit was made thinner, less bulky, the horn on the head was less pointed, and the buzzsaw didn't move, since it was made of static pieces.

This suit also has different sized back fins, a more circular visor, scales running up the back/sides of the neck and longer legs compared to the original version. This suit is also called the ZoneGigan (ゾーンガイガン,   ZōnGaigan?) in Zone Fighter.

Trivia

  • This suit is one of the only few remaining intact suits of the Showa era.
