Hey guys, I just wanted to write this small topic since I’ve been thinking about it for awhile. As you all know, Godzillasaurus was retired from the KWC in favor for the reasons of adding in a new Godzilla incarnation (which is Shin for that matter), due to how very limited he is and because how he wouldn’t have been allowed for the same reasons why Mothra Larvae and Rose Biollante aren’t allowed. And if you remember, I did wrote a Top 10 list of the best Godzillasaurus matches that have been written thus far and I made a fun topic of mixing Godzillasaurus’ win, loss and tie records with other monster that are Godzillas or saurians.
So why am I bringing this topic up? Because I wanna do this fun topic of which monsters that would have been a better replacement if Godzillasaurus wasn’t added at all, but I will choose the ones that are the most fitting. Yeah it’s fun seeing how Godzillasaurus’ records helped monsters that lose the most like Baragon while it would have given more matches to those that haven’t been used allot like Bemular or Cyber Godzilla. But lets be real, not allot of them would have fitting roles in one of those matches, would be kinda off to see Bemular team up with Godzilla Junior.
So what I’m gonna do is pick one monster that I think would have a fitting role in each match, and I’m gonna compare that win, loss, tie record with those monsters that I choose that would have replaced Godzillasaurus.
Match 90: Godzillasaurus Vs Gorosaurus
This match had an interesting take despite being an average match, where it kinda reminds me those old dinosaur movies. If thats the style this match was going for, then It would be fitting for any saurians in the roster. But heres the catch, the match ended with both monsters falling into the ocean and likely drowned there, so I gotta go for one that wouldn’t be suited for swimming.
I thought of either Baragon or Gomora since they’re burrowing dinosaurs, but my mind kinda leaned toward to Rodan. I think he would be fitting if he was kept in his normal form and that would have captured the whole old dinosaur movie style fight, plus, I could see this ending with Rodan knocking Gorosaurus off the cliff, only to get dragged down with when his wing was bitten.
Match 188: Godzillasaurus Vs Gezora
Not much to be said with this one since its just Godzillasaurus showing up in a “what if” scenario where he showed up to fight the original Gezora if it managed to survive in Space Amoeba. So anyone would fit in to replace Godzillasaurus, and since it is a tooth and claw fight, I think I’ll prefer if Gorosaurus took the spotlight.
Match: 221 Godzillasaurus Vs Zilla
In the intro, Godzillasaurus was taken away by Mr. Tako and shipped to New York City, where he had a tooth and claw fight with Zilla. Now I like this match for two reasons.
One, Zilla was written as his Final Wars counterpart, for he didn’t used any powers.
Two, he was written as a juvenile, presumably to fit in scale with Godzillasaurus’ thats written to be as tall as he was in the film. So for this one, I’m gonna have to look for a Kaiju that can fit with that kind of height, and who else would be a more fitting height then Baragon? I feel like Baragon would play off fair with any versions of Zilla and he should get another win considering how many losses he’s gotten.
Match 223: Godzillasaurus Vs Varan Vs King Kong
Since this match takes place in Mondo Island, I think Gorosaurus can take over this one.
What? Too soon?
Match 226: Godzillasaurus Vs Varan
Now this is gonna be an o very interesting replacement, and I dunno if any of you would expect this...
But what if we replaced Godzillasaurus with Godzilla (Heisei)?
Questionable, I know, considering that Varan is not a very powerful Kaiju. But since this match is Emiko wanting to help the people out from Varan by using Godzillasaurus, what if the match still kept its plot, but instead Godzillasaurus is slowly mutating into Godzilla before he could fight Varan? Thats sounds pretty interesting to me, and plus it would have been the first match to use Godzilla 85 and he would have been a fair opponent to Varan.
Match 228: Mechani-Kong & Godzillasaurus Vs Maguma
I was going for Gorosaurus again because its more fitting since he and Mechani-Kong both appeared in the same movie and would have made an interesting team up duo, but then Cyber Godzilla came in my mind. I can see Dr Who building Cyber Godzilla if we could have Cameron Winters control it, and plus, would have like to see that cyborg used more often.
Match 231: Godzilla Junior & Godzillasaurus Vs Titanosaurus Vs Spyler, Wargilgar & Zandora
Normally I would have picked Titanosaurus, but since he’s already in the match, I have to think of someone else. And I think a strange, but fitting choice for me would be Gomora. Normally we see him once in awhile, but I don’t think we have a match where he doesn’t use the Super Oscillatory Wave. I mean, Gomora in the original show was indeed powerful, but I don’t think he would have been as powerful as he was in the Ultra Galaxy series.
Match 239: Godzillasaurus Vs King Ghidorah (Heisei)
As I said before, the problem of this match is basically that its kinda an explanation of why Godzillasaurus shouldn’t and should never have been included in the KWC, since you would have to nerf someone like Ghidorah that much to give him a fair chance. But to be fair, this nerf on King Ghidorah is a bit interesting for he’s written as being a juvenile who’s still in development of mutation.
Now I’m unfamiliar with how old Godzillasaurus was between 1944 and 1954, but it's likely that he could be young. Which makes me think that the fitting replacement for him, in my opinion, would have been Godzilla Junior. He’s not strong, but he would have a fair and even fight with Ghidorah since he’s written as a juvenile.
Match 240: Godzilla (Heisei) Vs Godzillasaurus
Now for this match, the one that could have been the next Burning Godzilla Vs Hedorah, I was not expecting how it turned out to be a really great match. The world building was great, characters were well written especially Masten, and it utilizes a lot of things that haven't been used in the KWC before like the Shockirus.
And this choice of replacement might be a lazy one, but for how much he looks like the T-Rex in The Last Dinosaur, I’m gonna go with Gorosaurus again.
Match: 241: Godzillasaurus Vs. Rodan Vs M.U.T.O.
And finally, the last match that's a rather fitting way to end Godzillasaurus right as he retires. It's a tale where it's like the mother watching over an unhatched egg, gets killed by a predatory creature, only for another creature to take care of the child. And oddly enough, it kinda fits for Godzillasaurus since it could give off a great way to explain how Godzilla Junior and Rodan are like brothers in Godzilla Vs Mechagodzilla (Heisei).
The problem is to find the right Kaiju that could reproduce an offspring, I would say Zilla, but I can’t since this match was written around the time before mammals came in. So instead, I think the most fitting replacement choice would have been Anguirus, since there was another that would appear in the Showa timeline, in which to say that there could be more then one Anguirus.
So that's all of the matches, and for fun, lets do some math and see the results of the replacement’s win, loss & tie records.
Losses: 8 + 1 = 9
Wins: 5 + 1 = 6
Wins: 2 + 1 = 3
Losses: 7 + 1 = 8
Wins: 3 + 1 = 4
Losses: 2 + 1 = 3
Wins: 5 + 3 = 8
Ties: 2+ 1 = 3
So that's all I have to say, but I wanna know what you guys think is a fitting replacement for Godzillasaurus in these matches by commenting below. But if you wanna know what they could have added instead of Godzillasaurus? Either Godzilla (Showa) or Minilla, yes I’m aware of the whole reason why Showa can’t be added, but at least you can do so much with him.
Anyway, see ya.
