With so many kaiju coming in, it's not about if they fight, but when.


In the immortal words of Dr. Ishiro Serizawa…

Okay I came up with a better and marginally less derivative monster idea, if this is still accepting them.

It's a radioactive dragon.

Now I know you're going to say "hey that's just Godzilla" but bear with me. I meant this thing is an active radiological monstrosity in a way that Godzilla is never really presented. Radiation seethes off of this thing in invisible toxic waves, and its heart is a burning nuclear reactor, like a stellar core. Also more emphasis on the Dragon part, as it fully resembles a winged dragon.

I think this thing is going to be an alien of some kind; a stellar parasite that lives on the surfaces of stars and feeds on their fusion-bodies.

Here's the sample art.

@RedVII
This guy looks sick! He's approved.

@Dead Cruiser
I get where you're going with this, but if he exists it would make it even more difficult for the humans to engage with - let alone being in the immediate area where his radiation is released. I dunno how you intend to have the radiation lie for however long, but if anything I feel like he'd be better for future arcs. Cool idea though, just maybe a little bit much for arc 1.

BTW, main thread will be up tomorrow I promise. IC wont be immediate till somewhere later in the week just so people can place their characters and make the humans if need be. But its almost here! Hang in with me!

@Lmpkio If it helps the concept, I could have him start out in a dying/weakened state, with his nuclear heart weakened and unable to generate a lot of power.

I also had a concept for him to have a humanoid form, perhaps he begins that way and is eventually able to restore his full dragon form? I think it would fit in with the "last of his kind" narrative I'm shooting for. As a "human" he'd be less nuclear devestation, and more weird space magic. I think it would be funny for something roughly human-sized to go toe to toe with the big monsters.

Up to you.

Actually, last I heard, Godzilla was technically that, he just produced 'clean' nuclear powered blasts. XD could be wrong of course.

@Shoryu I've never seen Godzilla irradiate someone so that'll be the key difference here I guess.

@Dead Cruiser I take it you didn't see the original Gojira. Not the Americanized version, the original.

@KingOfTheSkies Never sat down and watched it, no. Regardless, the vast majority of incarnations seem to present his atomic breath as basically some kind of laser beam.

In the original Gojira, people who survived the rampage suffered radiation burns and poisoning. And while we're at it, it might be good to look into hibakusha, survivors of the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Though I do warn that some of the imagery of the effects of radiation are quite graphic.
