Godzilla vs. Giant Monster Varan (1995)

Series // Unused Character

Unofficial commissioned artwork by Apocalotaurus


Created for one of the earlist-known drafts for the final "VS Series" Godzilla movie, this incarnation of Varan would have been the most destructive yet. Acting as a kind of doomsday omen, Varan awakens in 1999 and sets out to destroy the planet. Fortunately for humanity, its cataclysmic mission is brought to an end by the combined forces of Godzilla and Little Godzilla, safely paving way for the arrival of the new millennium.

Ultimately, Varan's revival would be passed over in favor of resurrecting the 1954 Godzilla as the Heisei Godzilla's next opponent.
