Dogora

Dogora was the second kaiju to appear on Earth. It first made contact with the Russian space station Mir in the atmosphere, then appeared over London in September 2002. Dogora absorbed thermal energy from the attacks of the British military and moved on to Manchester. Dogora was eventually defeated when chemical plants throughout the United Kingdom and European Union mass-produced chemicals containing active ingredients from spider venom and sprayed them into the air. By the time Dogora was defeated after two days, major landmarks such as the Tower of London and Big Ben were destroyed and an estimated 3.9 million people were wounded or killed.

Are there any brave fans who are trying to translate this into English? I doubt its getting a official US release.

Thanks, was wondering if the book expanded on what we already knew.

What does the book say about Gabara, Jet Jaguar, and the Satsuma?

Gabara was a 10 meter-long monster that lived in the Amazon rainforest and frequently slaughtered local wildlife. It was reported to have been injured in a thermite explosion and then fell into a river, where it was eaten by crocodiles and piranhas.

Jet Jaguar isn't IN the novel, the G-Force did have battle armor basically called Type-38 Mobile Combat Uniform 'Jaguar J'.

The Satsuma is mentioned to be utilized against a kaiju, but doesn't say which one.

Each of these kaiju attacks sounds epic, they'd make great movies on their own, especially the Dagahra one

Sadly, Megaguirus is only mentioned, no mention of when she appears, none about where she attacks. Just a name drop.

There are at least four Anguirus in this continuity, but only three are ever mentioned. Anguirus I appeared from Siberia in 2005 and attacked Beijing along with Rodan, but they were both killed by Hedorah. Anguirus II appeared in South Africa one year later, no mention of his fate. Anguirus IV appeared from the ocean in Los Angeles in 2030 alongside Baragon II and Varan II, only for all three to be quickly killed by Godzilla.

From what I've gathered Titanosaurus is not included.

Really wish this was a manga instead of a novel, at least that way nonjapanese speaking fans could enjoy it. Oh well, such is life.

Titanosaurus is not included at all, and King gave the accurate Anguirus update.

kills other monsters. Apparently, Kamoebas's corpse washes ashore on Odo Island. At some point, Anguirus, Baragon, and Varan arrive, but they're notably wounded. It's revealed--quite dramatically when Varan is blasted by atomic breath and killed--that Godzilla was responsible for their injuries.


Also, about Godzilla's feats...
Spoiler:
He is O.P. as skreeonk in true anime fashion. Godzilla is hit with 150 nuclear bombs (not sure if this is a typo), and of course survives. He ends up destroying Los Angeles with a few blasts from his atomic breath. "One or two." His power is so destructive that the POTUS kills himself.

R.I.P Varan. Btw could the list be updated with the fates of the kaiju? Just a short "killed by Godzilla" would do.
Also, 150 nukes?! What the skreeonk?! Heisei Goji would have melted down like 10 times over!


"One or two"......

Now I'm thinking of a crossover manga series about these kaiju mentioned here appearing in Attack on Titan universe. I bet they (the human, of course) won't last long

Haven't looked into Orga or Biollante. However, I think the Zilla name came about due to its resemblance to Godzilla. The person being interviewed remarked how they weren't sure if Zilla was related to Godzilla or not, and that scholars should look into it.

There is a note at the end of the chapter that says that a theory does exist that says how Zilla could possibly be a similar species to Godzilla, but no conclusion has been reached yet.

1: How big is Zilla (if it's mentioned)?

2: Does Zilla have any armor?


1) No mention. I'm guessing they made him around the 40~50 meter scale, since he's described as being smaller than Godzilla.

2) No. One's taken out pretty easily by Maser cannons and rail guns.

Oh he wasn't hit with 150. No no
Spoiler:
He was hit with 2,000, in an effort to trap him in the Earth.

There’s no kill like overkill.

Neat . . . sounds like they attempted to use them, not to kill him, but to quickly dig a hole out under him.

I like that. I like that a lot.

It’s pretty simple. Half of the North Korean military dies due to disease and starvation, while the other half takes the opportunity to defect.

It’s a shame that Pulgasari didn’t attack them, though :(
