Gigan (ガイガン Gaigan) is an alien cyborg kaiju and an RP character used by Flaredragon00.
Gigan is sometimes considered Godzilla's most brutal and violent opponent, Gigan is shown to be very vicious and sadistic in combat, preferring to shred his opponents up close with his hook hands and buzzsaw.
However, at least in the Showa series, Gigan appears to be a bit of a coward, retreating and leaving his ally at the mercy of his enemies as soon as the tide of battle turns against him. He has also been shown to be incompetent at times.
Abilities & Weapons
- Anti-Gravity Flight: Gigan is capable of flying at speeds of up to Mach 3 while in Earth's atmosphere. However, in the realm of space, the cybernetic assassin Gigan is capable of flight at millions of times faster than light by encasing himself in a diamond. This normally assists in interstellar travel and is utilized very little, if at all, during battle situations. When it is used in battle, however, Gigan will often use it to engage in aerial slams to continuously topple his opponents without giving them a chance to counter, or even get up.
- Buzzsaw: Gigan has a buzzsaw built into his abdominal area made of an unknown alien alloy; granting it considerable durability and sharpness. In his first appearance, Gigan's saw was able to draw blood from both Godzilla and Anguirus.
- Flamethrower: Gigan has the ability to spew flames from his mouth.
- Hooked Appendages: Gigan's forelimbs sport a pair of large metal hooks in place of hands which he can use these to batter and stab an opponent.
- Cluster Light Beam: Gigan an fire out a laser beam from his visor on his forehead.
- Cowardice: Gigan has a tendency to flee from battle during a fight when they appear to be losing and when it appears to be so, Gigan will fly off.
- Gigan was the first monster to cause Godzilla and Anguirus to visibly bleed. In Godzilla vs. Gigan he had flown over Godzilla and slashed Godzilla's shoulder with his buzzsaw and later stabbed him in the head with his hammer-claw hands, causing blood to run down his face. Fake Godzilla and MechaGodzilla in Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla would later continue this.
