I think my favorite is Monster X and Orga. They seemed like the most original monsters out of them all. Most of them were redesigns (Kiryu's just Mechagodzilla with a new name.), and Megaguirus seemed like a different Battra, but she was still original.

I get that it IS supposed to be like a "Dark Mothra" but they could've been a little more clever and subtle at getting that across, but whatever. I certainly shouldn't expect subtlety.
I my opinion, Megaguirus's design actually works better as a "Orochi Mothra". Mothra is very obviously a giant moth, right? Megaguirus is a giant dragonfly; certainly a little mutant but it still resembles and is reminiscent of a dragonfly(which is pretty cool, by the way). Battra is...well, what exactly is Battra anyway? Is it really just a...scary moth?
See, that really bothered me about it. If Battra's wings were, say, like a fly's and y'know, all shimmery and stuff; cool.
Right, then Battra is a giant gnarly horsefly, cool.
Makes sense, moths/butterflies are generally considered the prettiest of insects. Flies are intertwined with filth, decay, the diabolic.
See, that's organic design. Just palette swapping (which Battra verges on being) is a cheap get out; he's dark, so he's bad.
It doesn't help that Battra has one of the most barren of background. Right, Mothra but bad; that's already all there really is to him and it's like it carries over into the design. As if the creators just gave up/didn't try and made the most obvious "Doppel-Mothra".
It doesn't help that GvsMothra is pretty much where Toho pulled the plug on any creativity for the rest of the Heisei period, IMO.
And before anybody gets mad, I actually am fond of the Battra design. But only as a design.
If they hadn't used the look, and I had an artbook of all the concept designs and I saw Battra in it, I'd say,"Cool. Really cool, but I'm glad they didn't use it." I dig it, but it's just kind of creatively the lowest common denominator.
And more laser beams??? C'mon, if you're going to do giant mutant versions of insects, why are you not drawing from the things they actually do?
Bugs have way cooler, totally natural ways of defending themselves than friggin' lasers.
