ARENA:
Mt. Fuji

RULES:
---Standard---

VERDICT:
Both specimens are quite physically powerful but Rodan is much stronger then Gigan. Rodan easily lifted Godzilla on more then one occasion. Gigan is a coward so I do see him flying away after getting dropped once or twice. He may hit hard but Rodan can take a hit. And if Gigan attempts to fly away I could see Rodan chasing after it for awhile.

Gigan 4/10
Rodan 6/10

I see Rodan winning this. If he could carry Godzilla like he was nothing several times, then I don't see Gigan lasting very well.

Question though, wasn't there a FM about this before?
Godzilla has a regen like Wolverine, a skin like Luke Cage, a hero aura like Captain America, a strength like Hulk, an unstoppability like Juggernaut, an immortality like Deadpool.

There's a 'God' in Godzilla for a reason...

Rodan is suppose to be equal to Godzilla in every way so if Godzilla could beat Gigan Rodan should have no problem doing the same.

A close battle, very close. Lucky for Gigan, Rodan doesn't know martial arts though, and when Rodan fought Godzilla in the 60s, Godzilla ddn't know martial arts either. Here is the question we must consider: could Rodan have done as good against a martial arts using Godzilla? Who knows, but I'm gonna say maybe not as well. Not that he wouldn't give one heckava fight.

Rodan 5.5/10

The decimal being there because I don't really know the answer to my own question above.

Maybe not but Rodan is smart, time and time again he did rather tactical things in GTTHM like letting Mortha use him as a platform so she could web up Ghidorah's heads, lift up Godzilla and drop him crotch first into a power tower, and luring Ghidorah away from his allies so Godzilla can get back on his feet and turing 180 and crashing into Ghidorah to keep him grounded long enough for Mothra to finish webbing him and allow both him and Godzilla to beat enough sense into him to actually convince him to retreat.

And in Monster Zero he took cheap shot at him, throwing a rock on Ghidorah when he was focused on Godzilla and use the mountains on Planet X as cover and has shurgged off both Godzilla's and Ghidorah's beams when there was none, the same beams that made even Gigan reluctant to fly for fear of inviting more long range hits. Plus he carried Godzilla while body slamming Ghidorah at one point using their combined body weight to knock him over.

Now am I saying Rodan is gonna win?

No.

Am I saying he's gonna lose?

Again no.

I am merely stating that because he was smart enough to be such a valuable ally in repelling Ghidorah and tough enough to show that he is one of Godzilla's very few equals, if not even fewer superiors, and kicking Godzilla's ass just as much as Godzilla was kicking his that this match is gonna be hell for both of them. Someone is gonna win but since both of them gave Godzilla hell I think it's safe to say the winner is not getting his victory without going through hell and back and with a very shaken ego.

I'm siding with Rodan. Rodan has shown intelligence and strength in battles with Godzilla and Ghidorah, and Gigan is not as strong as Ghidorah. Rodan also shows more maneuverability in the air, so Gigan is not going to win.

...

How in the hell is Rodan getting so much support in this match? He stands no chance whatsoever against Gigan. I mean, sure, he'd put up a fight just by being as tough as he is, but there's no way he'd be able to beat Gigan.

The reason Rodan would win is because of alot of feats he pulled off:

1. He carried Godzilla several times like he was nothing.

2. He took a direct hit to the face by Godzilla's Atomic Ray and yet showed little reaction.

3. He knocked himself and King Ghidorah out of the sky and got right back up.

4. He got hit several times by King Ghidorah's Gravity Bolts , even in the wings while he was flying, and kept going regardless.

So yeah, Rodan pretty much could handle Gigan quite easily.

Yeah but Godzilla couldn't fly. I'd like to see Rodan try that to Gigan.


It probably won't matter, cause Rodan would most likely be holding onto Gigan's wings.

But I'd like to see how he'd react to Gigan's claws or buzzsaw, which are capable of drawing blood from Godzilla.


I'm quite certain he would just keep going regardless.

That happened to Gigan at least twice and he got right back up too.


You're right on that point.

He technically does. They're on his back. Where else would they be?

...I don't see any wings.

And even if I'm mistaken and Gigan does have wings, they're so tiny that I've never seen them before. How the hell would Rodan be able to grab them?

Anyway, Gigan has this match. There's no way that Rodan can hurt Gigan enough for him to go down.

But yeah,Gigan has this match.

The "fins" on his back are supposed to be wings. I never really understood that, but if Toho says so...

Wait, those things on his back are supposed to be wings? ...If they were, they would have been flapping in the wind while he was flying. Those things are not wings. They're just weird aesthetic choices that just add to Gigan's over "WTF" design.

Seeing how Gigan is part-cyborg, it would make sense that Gigan's source of flight is jet propulsion. That's how I've always thought Gigan could fly.

I think Rodan would win. It's a matter of carefuly handling those hooks, cripple Gigan's flying capabilites, then peck him to death.

The two outer ones fold out to the sides when he flies, GXG. They're f'n wings. Just because they're not huge doesn't mean they aren't wings. They aren't his means of propulsion, but they're still what give him lift and allow him to steer.

I mean, going by your logic, aircraft don't have wings either.

Well, see, that's what I was talking about.

I've just never seen what the purpose of those "wings" were. As a kid, I thought they were just there to look cool. It's never come up before in a conversation, so I continued to think that, and just thought that Gigan flew around with jet propulsions in his legs or something...

...Eh, either way I really don't care.

*YAWN*

They're not wings, and GXG and Legion have made great arguments as to why they're not....deal with it.

But hey, you can believe what you want....hell, some adults still believe in Santa Clause too, so whatever floats your boat kid. There are much more important things in life to worry about...
