The most out there kaiju redesigns you've seen

Post by Al Diplodocus »

What's the weirdest, unorthodox fan redesigns of kaiju you've seen or heard of, or even made yourself?

For Godzilla, I've seen a quadrupedal redesign that barely looks like even Zilla. Looked like something from Monster Hunter.
Less drastically, there's this that reimagines Goji as a weird dragonfish relative (courtesy of DinoHunter2).

As for me, I once proposed a bird Godzilla. ToriGoji as he'd be known could either be a penguin, or a plotopterid, extinct relatives of gannets.

What.

The.

Ass.

Who the hell made this and what the the hell were their design process and rationale!?

The worst part is is that it wastes an otherwise solid design on the Godzilla name.

Ok, this is genuinly the worst attempt to redesign a character I have ever seen. I sincerely apologize to all of the generic Theropod and body horror Godzillas I lambasted in the past, this takes the cake by a substantial margin. Could have atleast kept the damn spines, jeez :lol:

This is supposed King Kong, but as a more mandrill-like monkey. Backstory is he's meant to fit into the Planet of the Monsters trilogy.
Kingrexy: wrote:[Kong] was one of few only kaiju that would be on humanities side. After realizing that humans meant no harm to it as long as it didn't harm them, he would steer clear of their cities and settlements, but sometimes even defend them from other kaiju. Humanity realized that they could use it as a guard against kaiju and they formed a symbiotic relationship with Kong. They exchanged food and what not for Kong's defensive capabilities. Kong would be taken care of by humans, while also defending their cities. Humanity gifted Kong with an advanced weapon. On a basic level, it is simply a melee weapon, but it holds many surprises. It can deliver painful electric shocks and devastating blows. Kong was taught how to modify the weapon into different forms which would all come in handy in fighting differnet distinctive forms of kaiju.

But the inevitable happened one day when Kong faced against OPzilla who blew him to bits. :P

Unironically the Kaiju Girls version of Godzilla is closer to Godzilla than...this.

It looks more like Orga than Godzilla. Maybe after Orga sampled Baragon's and Anguilla's dna.

I can find way worse Baragons than that. As for the Anguirus, the artist ended up scrapping that.

Also, at least that Baragon and especially the Meganulon look enough like their counterparts. Anguirus has no excuse.

1. We should tell him Anguirus should never be a skreeonking mole or whatever it’s meant to be.
2. Looks fine, seen worse.
3. Looks good, but yeah too similar to Ganimes.

Concept art is a good way to get all your ideas, as ridiculous as they are, on paper to get it out of your system.

Here's one I wanted to post for my first post on this topic but never found. It's supposed to be King Ghidorah.
