This. I don't mind Bagan in Super Godzilla and his history with unmade films is interesting but any and all Bagan jokes are just forced and unfunny now.

Please link me to an example of Long Bagan. I've heard of it, but never come across it.

There is a more dangerous version of it from the dark side of the internet called "LCNBT". :freak:

At this point, he's basically a joke, a meme for the fandom
Really doubt anyone besides 11 year olds take him seriously anymore.

Althought his name has certain catch to it, BAGAN!

I know, right? There's like a whole page dedicated to it! I sure am glad I stumbled into the Godzilla vs Kong thread out of idle curiosity, I was beginning to think I'd never find a place to talk about A Quiet Place. Maybe they should just cancel GvK altogether so we can all go see A Quiet Place 2 and discuss that here come March 2020?

pffft. Canadian Bagan is just Hamguirus. Plain, greasy American Bagan is great.

I like him, although I prefer his type B design over the Super Godzilla and Movie studios design.

I would love to see him in another game, but that's about it.

He looks cool, he's a skreeonk to fight in Super Godzilla until you get the power up, it would've been cool to see him in a movie, and a figure would be nice. Other than that, meh. Used to be crazy about him as a kid, because he was that badass kaiju that we never got. But I'm good.

Not sure if I responded to this thread or not, but I loathe Bagan with all my heart. The fact that so many people assume he’s literally god because he can destroy a single incarnation of Godzilla (one of the few who actually take damage from things like tanks) is insane.

So I guess it’s not Bagan himself I hate, it’s the fact that he was literally only in one semi-obscure piece of Godzilla media and yet he has so many fanboys who think he’s the poop.
Legit, every KoTM hater I have ever seen on social media or interacted with are all the same. They are either these young kids to middle aged adults so detached from anything beyond the Japanese films that they can't enjoy anything that doesn't begin with one of the Toho logos. They're the type that would of had no issues with KoTM if it was a Japanese-made production and think films like Godzilla vs. Monster Zero are the pinnacle of human drama.

He skreeonking rules. I named my first born son Bagan. I have a SHMA-style articulated figure I am creating. I have written Bagan fan fiction and submitted to Toho

Bagan punched me in the face one time.

It was awesome.

Bagan probably would have been no better or worse than any of the other kaiju introduced in the Hesei era if he got his film. Slightly goofier than you'd expect despite the affecations to seriousness because the Hesei era is less self aware than its Showa counterpart and not as dynamic in actual combat as kaiju made after the Hesei series ended, but with his own charm all the same. That being said like most of the original Hesei and Milennium era kaiju he'd probably be a one off at the end of the day. Only Kaiju that can trace their origins to the Showa era have ever gotten the benefit of being adapted and readapted into countless forms and films; the old boy's club of Toho's monster roster.

On the other hand, we're starting to approach the point where the Hesei era Godzilla filmsare as old to us as the Showa era were to them so maybe in an alternate universe where Godzilla got movies between Godzilla Returns and Godzilla vs Biollante and didn't take 1990 off Bagan might be looked at as a candidate for a nostalgia fuelled return the way King Ghidorah was in 1991. But that'd be because he'd be old as dirt the same way Ghidorah was back then.

There should’ve been a choice that said I like him and he deserves a chance.

*edit*

Never mind, there is a similar option.

Literally who?
Drink 32oz of water a day, exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, take your meds as prescribed, eat healthy (count calories), reach out to your support network when you need them, practice basic hygiene, learn from your mistakes, forgive yourself for your failures, admit when you're wrong, be humble when you're right, be nice to animals, and try again.
