Godzilla Neo - IKUSAGAMI by KaijuSamurai Godzilla Neo - IKUSAGAMI by KaijuSamurai
(The old version just wasn't dynamic or cool enough, so I reworked the design again)

Sun God

HEIGHT: As tall as the Tree of Life
MASS: A heavy as the sun's heat

There is little hard evidence to support the legend of the battle between Susano-Wo and OROCHI, and even less concerning the legend of UTSUNO IKUSAGAMI. A relatively recent discovery of kaiju lore, its become a point of contestation over what events transpired during Orochi's destructive rampage across Japan. Grasping at the frayed edges of science dangling over this fairy tale, one theory has been postulated that the gigantic warrior Ikusagami was some sort of alien visitor that found its way to Earth and, finding one reason or another to defend humanity's primitive beginnings, defeated the monstrous serpent. However, a recent archaological discovery near the caves where King Caesar was last seen buried postulated a new theory, depicting Ikusagami as "the armor of the sun" with the phrase "Man must prove himself worthy" scrawled on a tablet depicting the giant warrior.
The most generally accepted story of Ikusagami tells of how Orochi was a sort of "test," born from the Earth as well as outer elemental forces in order to serve as a trial for mankind to be the dominant race on Earth. It wouldn't be much of a stretch to state that Ikusagami was the eventual proof that we passed the test. It has been theorized that Yamato Takeru, a young prince of the kingdom of Yamato, was the one who was granted the power of Ikusagami in order to defeat the might of Orochi. But where does the story of Susano-Wo's sake fit in? It's possible that this was a ploy that Takeru used to weaken Orochi before fighting him, or it could support a hypothesis that Orochi was defeated once before, and the Spawn of Orochi had re-united into the monster for a second rampage!
Be that as it may, if Ikusagami were to exist, it would be a force to be reckoned with. A gigantic warrior of the sun, powerful enough to stand toe-to-toe with the legendary Yamato-No-Orochi, he would certainly give any modern kaiju a run for their money.
