This article is a comprehensive K.W.C. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). It covers everything from allowed combatants to the process behind the banners that are featured in each match. We hope this answers any questions you may have had about the K.W.C. and helps you with any matches you plan on writing in the future!
So! How do I get into the K.W.C.?
First, write a match or make a video, then send it to us. If it meets our approval, then you’re in! However (and this should go without saying): Do not steal someone else’s work. If you do, then you will be banned from the K.W.C. and any stories that you may have in the K.W.C. will be taken down and all further stories you send in will be ignored and deleted.
Where do I send it once it is finished?
PM it to our Verifiers, who are GodzillavsJason or Shippersdreamer. If they think it is good enough, they will send it to KaijuX or Birdman, who then send it to Greyshot151. Remember to submit your submission to 1 Verifier. Double submissions will only slow down the process.
You can submit it via private message on the Toho Kingdom forums or via email. For our verifiers, it is the following:
GodzillavsJason – firstname.lastname@example.org
Shippersdreamer – email@example.com
I didn’t get a response. Does that mean my match didn’t make it in?
Not necessarily. Please keep in mind that Greyshot151 aka Tyler Trieschock has a lot of K.W.C. matches to read, not to mention that he has other, non-K.W.C. things to do, so you may not get a response even if they’ve accepted your match.
It’s been a week and my match still isn’t up yet! What’s taking so long?
Keep in mind that even if your match makes it in, matches aren’t always posted in the order they are received. You could be waiting for weeks or possibly even months before it’s posted. Anthony Romero, the site owner, does have a little something off the Internet called a real life (as we all do). Be patient, and your match will be up in time.
How is the banner for my match handled? Do I request what I want on it, or…?
When you send in your match, be sure to include the location it takes place in (Tokyo, Monster Island, New York, Planet X, etc.), as well as whether it happens at day or night. Once your match has been given final approval by Tyler, he will create your banner to finalize your match or send it to an awesome creator, like Jackson Morris or Andrew Sudomerski.
What about K.W.C. Animated? What are the rules and processes?
For all things concerning K.W.C. Animated material, please read [here].
Anything else I should know?
All we really ask of your matches is that they’re coherent, have proper spelling and grammar and, most of all, that they’re fun. Other than that, have at it, and have fun!
Can two people co-write a match together?
Can I call dibs on a match?
Yes. We actually have a whole thread based on calling dibs, which you can find [here].
Can I call dibs on several matches?
No. We’ve had some issues about this in the past. It’s unfair to others who may also want to do a particular fight if you’ve called dibs on ten or so matches. Just call dibs on one match at a time. Also, calling dibs on a new match immediately after finishing one isn’t really any different from calling dibs on multiple matches, so please, after completing one match, wait a while before calling dibs on another.
Can I write Maguma and Gezora vs. Destoroyah?
No nonsense matches, if you please. One-sided matches are not against the rules, per se – We do have a few, like Match 26: Gyaos (Heisei) vs. Biollante and Match 64: Monster X vs. Gorosaurus. But please try to refrain from insanely mismatched fights like the one mentioned above. Thank you.
Are rematches (for example, another King Kong vs. SpaceGodzilla) allowed?
Are subtitles (Biollante vs. Gabara: The Really Epic Battle of Total Awesomeness!) allowed?
For the most part, no, they are not. The only exception is if the fight is a rematch, in which case it will be titled “Monster A vs. Monster B: Round 2” (or Round 3, Round 4, etc).
But what about Bagan vs. Every—
Match 56: Bagan vs. Everyone: Fallout was written before this rule was finalized. We will be sticking to this rule from now on.
It said on Gojipedia that Zilla can shoot acid from his stomach. Can I use that in a match?
For future reference, please avoid outside resources like Wikipedia, Gojipedia, or WikiZilla for info (unless it is reliably sourced), at least when it comes to the K.W.C. If you must have a list of powers handy so you know what a monster can and cannot do, then please use the stats from the Monster Bios. They come straight from Toho, the people behind the movies, and from other official merchandise, thus making the stats here THE official stats.
There are so many monsters in the K.W.C. roster! Are there any that aren’t allowed?
Yes. Only monsters that had Toho involvement are allowed, either by direct creation (Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, Gaira, Zone Fighter), distributing the film in theaters or on video (Gamera, Legion, Ultraman, Gomora, Goliath) or other related media (Bagan, Krystalak, Obsidius, Skullcrawler). Any monsters whose media were not created/distributed by Toho are not applicable to the K.W.C. Among the off limits creatures are:

- Yongary / Yonggary, Cyker
Even if a monster is directly related to Toho and Godzilla, they must either have a suit, figure, or a detailed 3D model to use for the banners. Otherwise, they’d look out of place when fighting the “rubber suit” monsters. They must also have a list of known powers (so we know what we’re writing about). These rules mean that none of the monsters from the following sources can be allowed:
- Hanna-Barbera’s The Godzilla Show (The Power Dragon, Firebird, Energy Beast)
- Godzilla: The Series (DRAGMA, Medusa, Area 51 Mutations)
- Marvel’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters comic series (Yetrigar, the Beta-Beast, Red Ronin)
- Dark Horse’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters comic series (Burtannus, All-Terraintula, the Stranger)
- IDW’s Godzilla comics (Magita, the Godzilla In Hell demons)
- Unfilmed Godzilla movies (Gigamoth, Deutalios, Redmoon, Ghost Godzilla, etc.)
Wow, that’s a lot. Am I allowed to add any new monsters to the roster, then?
As long as they meet all the requirements mentioned in the previous question, then yes, you can. Just be ready to explain their eligibility if their connection to Toho seems a bit shaky to others. We’ve had some trouble with this before (Agon and Alien Baltan, specifically).
Wait a second, what are C-Rex and Cyber Godzilla doing—
As previously said, the main reason we don’t allow cartoon monsters in the K.W.C. is that they’re cartoons and wouldn’t look right alongside the ‘real life’ monsters. However, as you can see, we’ve found images of those two monsters that are not cartoons.
Wait another second, there’s a monster in Match 56 that Toho had no hand in whatsoever!
All right, all right, we’ll address the elephant in the room. If you’ve read Match 56: Bagan vs. Everyone: Fallout, you’ve noticed that a certain underground monster transformed into a certain powered-up form which Toho had no hand in, in any way, shape or form. Those responsible have been sacked. It was a special, one-time-only thing. Don’t expect to see it happen again. So, please, put your illegal monsters away.
Wait a third second! In Match 133: Mechani-Kong vs. Baragon (Showa), Kumonga (Showa), Titanosaurus and Gigan (Millennium), Mechani-Kong is portrayed as a sentient being in command of his own army of aliens and kaiju and—
Tom Fairchild, one of the previous heads of the K.W.C., just pretty much says “Screw it” and does his own thing when he writes his matches. He is the exception that proves the rule.
I see that Zetton and Baltan appeared in Battle Soccer and the Evangelions in City Shrouded in Shadow; could we use those to loophole them into the K.W.C.?
Afraid not. Crossovers over in Japan generally aren’t Toho involved properties. They are, at best, given Toho’s blessing. Otherwise, Toho has no connections with those whatsoever.
Why are the names and stats different? I see on Toho Kingdom that the “Rogue Titan” is called Attack Titan or that Legendary Godzilla isn’t addressed as “Godzilla (MonsterVerse)”, or how Monster X is 110 meters and 58,000 tons. What’s up with that?
There are various reasons for the different naming, but most of it stems from the addition of a monster before Toho Kingdom updates with the official bios, with only prior-hand information to work off of. For the case of the MonsterVerse, Godzilla (Legendary) was added before this news came to light. For all intents and purposes, what we have is what we’ll stick with.
For the differing stats, most are a result of the K.W.C. staff taking some liberties to give more variety to the numbers.
Fine. So are transformations and alternate forms allowed?
To a certain point, yes. Those that have been given the green-light:
- Gigan’s upgraded chainsaw form and Showa counterpart.
- The Showa or Millennium versions of Ebirah, King Caesar & Manda.
- Hedorah and Destoroyah’s various forms.
- Heisei Mechagodzilla becoming Super Mechagodzilla.
- Showa Mechagodzilla wearing his Fake Godzilla skin, with the following movie designs allowed: 1955, 1962, 1964, 1965-1966, 1967, 1968-1972, 1973-1975.
- Battra going back and forth between larval and adult stages.
- MOGUERA splitting up into Land Moguera and Star Falcon.
- Mothra Leo is able to turn into Rainbow / Aqua / Armor Mothra.
- Burning Godzilla is allowed, though it is preferred that he not be treated as a mere “power-up” transformation.
- Super Godzilla is allowed, but like Burning Godzilla, don’t treat it as a mere “power-up” transformation. You may also use the Japanese or American versions as skins.
- Monster X turning into Keizer Ghidorah.
- SpaceGodzilla alternating between land and flying forms.
- Bagan’s Energy Body.
- Rodan turning into Fire Rodan.
And those that have not:
- Mothra Larva.
- Mothra Leo Larva.
- Biollante’s rose form.
- Cretaceous King Ghidorah.
- Reiwa Godzilla’s 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th forms.
- Godzilla Junior mutating into Heisei Godzilla.
Wait, Showa Gigan wasn’t there before! What’s up with that? Does that mean we can’t use Millennium Gigan?
Gigan’s transition into other forms takes influence from the IDW comic series, Godzilla: Rulers of Earth. This does not affect Millennium Gigan in any way, but rather allows writers to have more fun with the character. Do not expect other established monsters to get this sort of mixed-incarnations treatment in the future, unless it’s necessary (such as the case with King Caesar, Ebirah, and Manda for purposes of banner making).
Is there a limit to how many different incarnations of the same monster can be in the K.W.C.? I’d love to see Godzilla 2000 vs. Godzilla Earth!
Sorry to say, but yes, there is a limit. At the time of this writing, there are four Ghidorahs (Mecha-King Ghidorah, Legendary King Ghidorah, Desghidorah and Grand King Ghidorah) as well as Orochi (who’s close enough) and Monster X (with his Keizer Ghidorah transformation). If the incarnation is different enough from the others already included (like the difference between Grand Ghidorah and Desghidorah), it will be taken into consideration. If the difference isn’t all that big, however (like how Grand Ghidorah is basically just Showa Ghidorah on steroids), then most likely not. We don’t need 10 different versions of the same beast running around.
As of right now, we have four Ghidorahs, four Godzillas, three Mechagodzillas, two Rodans, and three Mothras. While this may change in the future, do not write matches expecting a change to occur in time.
Can we use Godzillasaurus in a future match?
Unfortunately, no. When the big red label “Retired” is in place, that’s it. The combatant can no longer participate in the K.W.C. as a fighter for the written and animated formats. Currently, we have Godzillasaurus, Daigoro, and Goliath as permanent retirees; you can check out the rest of the retired monsters in the Combatant Statistics.
Heisei Mothra and Heisei Ghidorah are also retired; however, due to the plethora of resources to animate these fighters (and the lack of resources for their replacements), they will be available for K.W.C. Animated submissions.
[NOTICE: As of this update, we are still in the process of getting the rest of the matches out for Daigoro, Goliath, Heisei Mothra, and Heisei Ghidorah. Once all the matches we have are processed and posted, we will officially put them into retirement. We are not accepting matches for these fighters, and submissions with the aforementioned will be rejected. This message will be deleted once everything is in place.]
Hey, there’s a monster in a match that’s not even on the K.W.C. roster! The heck?
Occasionally, you’ll see a kaiju pop up who isn’t technically part of the match it’s appearing in. As long as the monster doesn’t actually take part in the match and affect its outcome drastically, then this is allowed. For example, in Match 65: Gabara vs. Goliath, you’ll see that Minilla makes an appearance, but note how he only appears at the very beginning and ending, and doesn’t actually help fight either of the combatants mentioned in the title.
Can Legion use her soldiers or Megaguirus use the Meganulons/Meganula? What monsters can summon minions to assist them?
- Dagahra can utilize his Barems.
- Legion can summon her Symbiotic Legion soldiers to assist her in battle.
- The Meganula are also allowed, though try to keep in mind that they’re usually dead by the time Megaguirus is up and about.
- Zilla can have his offspring assist in battle, but bear in mind that they do not share a hive-mind system.
- The Gryphon can have the Probe-Bats assist; though in context of the original script, they’re either dead or absorbed by the time the Gryphon has awoken.
Are there monsters that can come in multiples? If so, who?
- Gyaos (Heisei), taking from the Heisei Gamera
- Kamacuras (Millennium), influenced by Son of Godzilla (1967).
- Mechagodzilla (Showa), influenced by Godzilla: Rulers of Earth.
- Destoroyah; multiple Micro, Juvenile, Aggregate, and Flying forms, but only one Final form.
- Hedorah (Showa); multiple Water, Land, and Flying forms, but only one Final form.
- Skullcrawler, as seen in Kong: Skull Island (2017).
- The MUTOs, as seen in Godzilla: Aftershock (2019), Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019), and implied in Godzilla (2014).
Match 181: King Caesar (Millennium) and Sanda vs. Rodan (Heisei) uses Rodans in a pair. Can there be more than two Rodans? Who else can come in pairs?
For the case of monsters that come in pairs, there cannot be more than two. There is a list of monsters green-lit to come in sets:
- Gezora can come in a pair, taking influence from Ganimes.
- Kamoebas can come in a pair, taking influence from Ganimes.
- Ganimes can come in a pair, as seen in Space Amoeba (1970).
- Rodan can come in a pair, influenced by Rodan (1956).
Can Destoroyah use his chest ray from that one deleted scene?
If a monster used a power on-screen or a visual representation in an official Toho involved source or publication, they can use it in the K.W.C.
Can I use the various powers from the Pipeworks video games (Titanosaurus and Varan’s sonic beams, Gigan’s teleportation, Megalon’s magnetic vortexes, etc.)? Or what about the alleged powers mentioned in the Kaiju Guide for GODZILLA (PS3/PS4) or Godzilla Movie Studio Tour, like Gabara’s poison ooze?
No for all power-ups and moves except for Critical Mass, since it IS based on a movie precedent, it is the only exception (keep in mind however that to achieve it, SpaceGodzilla’s crystals are acquired so a monster randomly changing in the middle of a match is a no-go). It is our decision of what powers beyond the films are included or not. While we may be flexible once in a blue moon for the sake of variety, don’t hold your breath (specifically with the Pipeworks powers, we will not be including those).
But you added Showa Gigan’s eye laser and Anguirus’s sonic roar from the games! Why not the others?
Except we didn’t. Anguirus’s ultrasonic roar is a canonical power he used in Godzilla Raids Again (1955) and must be depicted in that light. Same case for Gigan’s Laser Knife; it is a canonical power to the character (though unused in his on-screen appearances, it has made many appearances in posters and other media—not just the video games). We ask that you refrain from interpreting them as the video game versions and more in line with the “canon” versions of these techniques.
Hey, wait a minute. Gomora’s Super Oscillatory Wave isn’t from—
Admittedly, we’ve had to bend a few of our own rules to make some monsters more capable fighters in the K.W.C. This is why Gomora has his Super Oscillatory Wave when only the Ultra Galaxy version of the character (which Toho had no involvement in) possessed the ability. To a lesser degree, this is also why Battra can transform back and forth between adult and larval forms or why Mecha-King Ghidorah has new abilities not from the film.
What’s the rule on writing alternate interpretations of the monsters?
As long as it’s not too drastic a deviation from the monster’s nature, it’s okay. As such, you can do things like Final Wars Gigan being controlled by Star Hunter Nebula M instead of the Xiliens, treat Heisei Godzilla as a defender of the Earth and have Zilla be accompanied by H.E.A.T. However, writing Showa Baragon as a Yamato Guardian or Kiryu as the weapon of the Spacemen from the Third Planet is a bit too far from the origins and intent of the character.
Can I make up my own version of a monster for a match? Like, can I have Ghidorah grow an extra five heads, or make Anguirus be able to fly, or have Mothra transform into Megalon?
Uhh… no? In no way is that allowed. If you want to do that, that’s fine, but it needs to be in an unrelated fanfic, not a K.W.C. match.
Is the exception, not the rule.
What the heck does ‘K.W.C.’ even stand for, anyway?
“Kaiju War Chronicles.”
I’ve got a cool idea for a match, but I don’t think I can/I don’t want to write it myself. Can I request that one of the K.W.C. writers write it?
Absolutely! You can request which monsters are fighting and even where they fight, if you care to. However, that’s all. You can’t request who the winner is. That’s up to the writer and they will write the outcome however they see fit. The request can be made [here].
Also, just because you can request a match, please don’t go requesting match after match after match. After a while, it starts to get annoying. Requests are better saved for a period where nobody’s writing anything and/or no new matches are being posted (and we mean for more than a week or two).
Is there a limit to how many monsters are allowed in a single match?
Not at all. For example, Match 100: Everyone vs. Everyone features a whopping 49 monsters.
Can you tell me if Monster A will make it into the roster?
What, and ruin the surprise? Not a chance, Sparky. Just be patient and enjoy the K.W.C. matches as they appear while you wait for new monsters.
Then what about the monsters that are just added with no matches attached to them?
That is a result of a change in how we approach things for the future. It is to inform potential writers/animators of who is available and can be used. Who knows, maybe you’ll be the lucky first to write/animate for them!
Why does Monster B always lose every match they’re in?
There are several reasons as to why a writer had any given monster lose. Maybe the writer couldn’t come up with a credible way for them to win. Maybe the writer thought it best served the story of the match for them to lose. Maybe the writer just simply doesn’t like that monster. Whatever the circumstances are, don’t get so worked up over their defeat. Lots of kaiju people like lose matches in the K.W.C. Don’t worry if they lost this round. They can always have a rematch, or fight another monster and beat them. Just remain patient, and the monster will win a match eventually.
So how’d all this get started, anyway?
Click [here] for a brief history.
And who writes all these matches?
For the most part, the matches are written by Christian Salabert (TitanoGoji16) and Thomas Fairchild (Tomzilla). The K.W.C.’s other talented writers are Tyler Trieschock (Greyshot151), Joshua Reynolds (Monster Master), Eugene Tan (Primevalgodzilla V2), Kenneth James (Godzillawolf), Kristian Zatkoff (Living Corpse), Hayes A. Jones (HayesAJones), Jacob Haas (Draglord), Stephanie Hughes (Goji_girl), Lucas Salabert (DeadpoolsbetterThanU), Isaac Altenbach (Beef Bigshot), Thomas Eckert (Saw-U-In-1/2), Michael Menei (GodzillaFan1992), Patrick Alan Green (Lain of the Wired) and Andrew Sudomerski (KaijuX). Others include Forrest Freund, James Webster and Nick Anstett (Gorosaurus Rex).
Those banners that show the monsters fighting are awesome. Who makes them?
Christian Salabert was the sole banner artist up through Match 42: Orga vs. Gomora, but he had to stop due to technical difficulties. Starting with Match 43: King Kong vs. Gorosaurus, Titanosaurus and Baragon (Showa), Stephanie Hughes was hired. Before too long, there were more banner orders coming in than one person could deal with alone, and so with Match 69: Frankenstein vs. Zilla, Jackson Morris (Varan58) was brought in as the K.W.C.’s third banner artist. Starting with Match 105: Godzilla (Heisei) vs. Rodan (Heisei) vs. Mothra (Heisei), Christian was able to resume his banner duties until Match 141: Gezora vs. Ebirah (Millennium). Christian and Tom then stepped down and the K.W.C. was given to Tyler Trieschock, who now creates the banners alongside Andrew Sudomerski & Jackson Morris.
So, who’s made what, exactly?
For any further details, check out the thread [here]. It has pretty much every little factoid you could want about the K.W.C. matches.
If you have any questions of your own, or if something is unclear, feel more than free to comment below!K.W.C. // April 30, 2017
This year’s April Fools’ day prank was a two part effort involving myself and Mathew Webber. The scope of the pranks included both the K.W.C. and the forums, hitting Toho Kingdom visitors on multiple fronts. One of those pranks being a new match. The other was a spin on the threads and moderation of the site’s forums. As a result, this year’s summary is broken up into two parts. Read below for more details on both, and feel free to leave a comment to share your thoughts as well.
Hello longtime fan of Tohokingdom, first time reader, or someone that is caught in-between… again. As with every year, Tohokingdom unleashed its newest April Fool’s joke upon the world, and this year the staff of the K.W.C. were lucky enough to take control. Unlike in years prior with “Match 200” or Giant Condor vs. Everyone; 2017 took the joke in a strange new direction. But before I dive any deeper, let me explain where this crazy idea originated.
Around October, with the critically acclaimed release of Match 185, I was hit with a dozen random ideas for the K.W.C. due to the matches’ premise and bending of the rules. Of these ideas, one was a new April Fools Match featuring the writers fighting each other in a battle royale to the death. The idea was brought forth by Alex Williams, a longstanding Verifier of the K.W.C., and its premise I liked. Upon discussion with Andrew Sudomerski, the Editor of the K.W.C., we decided to modify it slightly by having Christian Salabert & Thomas Fairchild as the two antagonists who return to retake the K.W.C. We contacted the two, and with their approval the idea gained full steam. Alex and I quickly began working on this around December, and then…. Then things stalled.
It wouldn’t be until mid-March before both parts were integrated, and even then it was far from complete. Jackson Morris was tasked with making a Shin Godzilla vs. Everyone banner, but creative differences led to the eventual Star Godzilla vs. Shin Godzilla banner. Multiple verifiers were asked to create their own fight scenes, but only one ended up contributing.What I thought would be a collaboration piece of different writers, ended with myself contributing a majority of the work which in the end I think helped keep the story, pace and writing consistent between myself and Alex.
In regards to my inspirations for “Match 195”, there are quite a few depending on the section. The most evident is the K.W.C.C., a podcast run by Andrew and the backdrop of the match, which I would highly recommend you to check out. In regards to TK Ville, the idea was based off of a forum member by the name of Kubo who created a fantastic fan fiction series called The Toho Kingdom Forum Adventures. I loved the idea of Toho Kingdom being its own city, and with this match I finally had the chance to pay homage to his work. The other inspiration for me came from an unlikely source. A fantastic series called One Punch Man. This is especially evident in regards to Tom and Christian’s characters with one being overpowered yet restrained while the other is far weaker yet is constantly the one doing the leg work. I would also highly recommend listening to the “The Ruler”, “Dark Energy” & “Saitama Theme” in regards to Tom’s transformation, the final Tom vs. Tyler fight and the Tom vs. Anthony fight respectively.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the final result, and I want to thank everyone who contributed to this project. We may continue this series, we may not. Whatever course is taken though, I highly recommend everyone always keep your eyes out for what the site has to offer on March 32nd!
In an attempt to listen to user feedback as well as to better connect with the community, the Toho Kingdom Forums was turned into the totalitarian dictatorship people make it out to be. This includes a slight revamping of the rules to where the warning system was changed to a “3 Strikes Policy” where at 3 warning you would receive a permanent ban. However to off shot this, upon receiving 2 warnings you were to be banned for 1 week and warnings expire after 90 days instead of 1 year. The banning procedure was also changed. If you are to be banned for either 2 or 3 warnings you would be at the end of the first day of the new new month (April 1st in this case). The “Comments, Suggestions and Error” Section was renamed to “Questions for the Totalitarian Rule” and the entire sub-forum was promptly locked, as no problems exist anymore.
In addition to this, a few new rules were put into place protecting the Moderation staff from accusations and to uphold our new tyrannical image. Such examples are;
- Arguing with a Moderator will result in a warning
- Being a smart alec (ass) to a Moderator or Staff member will result in a warning
- Intentionally starting drama or inciting it and/or participating in any of the above will/can result in a warning and/or a free ban (determined at the time by the staff member.)
Also listening to more requests from the user base, the “Whine Thread” was brought back along with a “Spam Thread” for users to get out all of their bad posting habits. This was grouped into a sub forum within the “General” forum but however, was stuck in “Read Only Access” unless you were part of the Forum Staff or a member of the Forum Police.
Part of this new forum was the creation of the user group “Forum Police”, which can be seen to the right. A group of users composed of members who the staff held in high regard, are ex-forum staff themselves or trusted users. This group’s job is to mark posts indiscriminately as “Infractions”. Upon a notification of an “Infraction”, members of the forum staff will take over and administer the correct punishment. Not everything is doom and gloom however, as several threads got caught up in the chaos and have been renamed to various things as well as several topics.
In order to contain the upheaval of chaos and to enforce the iron fist, a fmoderator was bumped to “Admin Status” (Admin in Rank Color Only). This being Beef Bigshot. He promptly attempted a coup but was exiled. Chris55 was given this “Admin status” was well as a fancy “Site Staff” logo. Members of the Admin Team and Moderation Team also received flashy new rank images.
Some of the board names were also changed as part of the process. Below are the boards as they looked on April 1st, 2017.General // April 2, 2017
Hello longtime fan of Toho Kingdom, first time reader, or someone that is caught in-between. If you were lucky enough you probably noticed a K.W.C. Match on March 32nd that was a bit peculiar in nature. I would like to say it was an organized effort from the beginning but… it really was the combination of a series of random events, but before I go into those, let me first start off at the beginning of it all.
After many years under the watchful eyes of Tom Fairchild and Christian Salabert, the K.W.C. gained new leadership in January, 2015. I was honored to accept the title, and I quickly began work on the section. Matches were posted, new staff was acquired, and as I continued to work I received a message from Andrew, aka the editor of the K.W.C who is known as KaijuX on the forums, who messaged, “I literally just thought of pretending to add the Giant Serizawa from Godzilla Generations if we got the role for AF this year or whenever it happens.”
I gave him the go ahead, and as I waited for the match I also received a notice from Joshua Reynolds, aka Monster Master on the forums. He also asked, “Anyway I could write an April Fools’ Day 2015 match for the KWC? Giant Condor vs. Everyone.”
As I was about to message him about the fact we had a match in progress, I was notified by Andrew that he would be unable to finish his match. This ultimately resulted in Joshua’s greenlight, and the creation of Giant Condor vs. Everyone. Joshua had this to say on its creation, “The idea for this came, obviously, from the Bagan vs. Everyone match. However, the Giant Condor has never been used (and isn’t an eligible kaiju for the K.W.C.), but I felt this would be a funny match up. I tried making it somewhat competently written at first and then (it) devolved into horrible fan fic fare.”
Read the original April Fools Match:
Match 148: Giant Condor vs. Everyone
While most of the original work was created by Joshua, the ending actually had a major revision. Due to Alexander’s involvement, I sent him the match to see what he would add. He inserted Heisei King Ghidorah into the ending, and with a minor adjustment from myself, the match was perfected with what I would call one of my favorite twists in the K.W.C.
Last, but certainly not least, I designed the banner around an extremely dark but satirical tone. FUN FACT – The shadow against Earth is not the Giant Condor but a heavily edited version of The Giant Claw. Yup…take that one in…
So I hope everyone enjoyed this special, and a massive final thanks to Joshua and Alex for their involvement. I highly recommend keeping an eye out for their work, and all future K.W.C. specials which you shouldn’t have to wait another four years for!
P.S. – As I finish this, I guess I should also thank the owner of the site so thanks… Um… Ugh… Thanks to… That Chris guy I think…General // April 13, 2015
