I'm sure plenty of people would have rather seen some other monster than Orga in DAMM at the time, but he got in because he was the newest Godzilla foe (to the US, at least). But if not Monster X, then wouldn't a new monster be preferred than an old one, since we'll be getting those guys back later...? Would be nice to start out this game with a few new faces. And again, if not Monster X, then what else is there... Gabara (Yes please.)? Ebirah (No. Gabara.)? We've already had the more famous monsters (I would say Battra, but I already had Mothra. VARIETY!).
He'd probably be a pretty neat fighter as well. Reminds me of M. Bison with all that hovering. Didn't he have a rising spin kick to tail whack attack in Final Wars? But I guess if the fans prefer someone else, then it can't be helped, lol.
I like your way of thinking. It isn't going to kill the Showa Enthusiasts if we incorporate Monster X instead of Gabara or Ebirah. Sure, something from the olden days might be nostalgic, but if anything you should service the Final Wars crowd that hasn't seen jack shize aside from FW Gigan and the hybrid King Caeser.
And his hovering jump-combo would be an awseome move. Monster X is no slouch, and I'd absolutely love for him to be in the initial release. Besides, its not like he's permanently displacing another monster. We'll be getting expansions over time, and then you'll get your obscure Toho beasties. No sense it putting in someone like Kamoebas or Gezora over Monster X.
I hope I'm making sense here. Sure, Ebirah, Gabara, and all those little-knowns should be implemented, but if I were to choose them or Monster X for an initial release, I'd go with skull-and-bone-armor 9 out of 10 times.
