Godzilla Neo - VARAN by KaijuSamurai Godzilla Neo - VARAN by KaijuSamurai
(This rounds out my horrible take on the GMK concept, while integrating Kaneko's original idea of having Varan as the "Sky God," but then I threw in Manda as the "Sea God" alongside the "Earth God" Baragon. I also thought it would be neat to throw in a reference to the Ainu culture)

Sky Demon
VARAN

Height: 45 meters
Length: 90 meters
Mass: 10,000 metric tons
Type 1 - Beast Class (Later becomes Type 2 - Warrior Class)

Bio:
The final scroll of the "Legend of the Yamato Guardians" has never been properly translated, due to damage to the original text, but it can be said that the writings identify the "Sky Demon VARAN" as "the most fearful of the Guardians," and "one of Orochi's most vicious children." It was also written that the Yamato Priests never seemed to succesfully contain Varan's raging spirit, and it took an alliance of the priests and "the mountain people" to trap and subdue the monster (likely ancestors of the Ainu).

Of course, Varan arose once more in 2004, along with Baragon and Manda, to battle a mighty foe indeed.

Abilities/Aspects:
- Armored hide repulses most conventional weaponry.
- Able to extend fleshy membrane to glide and fly.
- Huge spikes on claws and tail use a horrifically strong venom to subdue prey.
- Max flight speed of Mach 1, and extremely maneuverable (more than Rodan, but not as much as Megaguirus)

One of the duller movies from Toho's early kaiju career... or rather the American version, which is more the western editors' fault than Toho's. Much of the film is mostly pointless banter, with no real character development.

The monster action is the film's only saving grace; despite appearing in a less-than-spectacular movie, Varan is probably on of my favorite Toho kaiju.

Varan should have been a regular in the Toho lineup as far as I was conerned, he was very cool.
