Day 05 of 13 Nights gives us Destroyah, no that is not a typo. It could be Toho had trouble getting the copyright for Destroyer. This pic represents the 5th and final form of the monster. The Heisei period that started with Biollante, ended with Destroyah. One of the themes of the Heisei Era was monsters altering and changing forms throughout the movie

Day 08 of 13 Nights brings us Jet Jaguar. Whos only appearance was in Godzilla vs Megalon. Jet Jaguar was the result of a contest Toho had in mid-to-late 1972 for fans to come up with a new hero for them to use. Toho saw a chance to capitalize on the Ultraman craze and was originally going to have him star in the movie calling it Jet Jaguar vs Megalon. In the end Toho worried that this new character could not draw the box office money and made him an ally of Godzilla.

Day 11 and we have King Kong, from the movie Godzilla vs King Kong. The idea started as a pitch from Willis O'Brien, the special effects animator of the original King Kong. His idea though was for King Kong to fight Frankenstein. After being turned down by many movie studios Toho picked it up after O'Brien agreed to change Frankenstein's Monster to Godzilla. The look of Kong was more like that of an orangutan than of a Gorilla. He looked at his best when fighting so I reflect that in the painting
