Megalon is a cybernetic space insect Kaiju that was created by the Nebulans. Thousands of years ago he crash landed on Terra and fought King Caesar. He reawakens in 1973 and in 1975, he encounters Godzilla and other kaiju in Ghana.

Appearance

Megalon resembles a cross between a Rhinoceros Beetle and a Cockroach. He stands upright on two legs, with feet have two clawed toes (the claws being grey). Most of his exoskeleton is brown with some parts almost resembling scales, particularly around his neck. He has two large yellow insect eyes with a mandible-like mouth with silver tusks at the sides. He has a pair of antenna on his head. Between the antenna is long horn which ends in a star-like shape

Megalon's carapace/wing covers have a orange and brown pattern. Beneath the carapace are a pair of insect wings for flight. Megalon's most distinctive feature is the giant hand-drill attacked o his forelimbs which are using for digging and attacking.

Personality

During The Thousand Year War between the many different galactic races, Megalon was not a terribly bright Kaiju. Despite being a later creation than Gigan, he is by no means an improvement, rather a step in a different direction. Megalon mostly followed whatever orders his leaders gave him, carrying out mass destruction where needed. He wasn't capable of planned combat or the sort of "honor" that Gigan practiced, yet if pointed in the right direction, everything within a 50 to 70 mile radius would be utterly destroyed.

After awakening from crash landing on Terra, Megalon was shown to be distressed and lost without something to guide his actions, causing random destruction, wander around aimlessly, or flail about madly until he eventually tired his circuits out.

History

Megalon attaking the Ryukyu Kingdom

Megalon was originally a giant alien beetle that was discovered by the Nebulans and reconstructed into a cyborg to serve them during the Thousand Year War, being a later creation than his brother Gigan, alongside the Xilians against the Kilaaks, the Simians and the Millennians.

At some point near the end of the war, Megalon departed on a mission, to hunt down the Millennian UFO and destroy the Millennians. Megalon's pod reaches the location of the UFO which is Terra's orbit. However the UFO is engaged in a fire fight with a Cryog ship over ownership of Terra and as Megalon's pod gets closer to the UFO, the pod is shot down in the cross fire and Megalon crash lands on Terra.

Unable to contact or receive orders from his masters, Megalon became distressed and surfaced in the Ryukyu Kingdom of Okinawa, beginning to cause random destruction wherever he went until he encountered the kingdoms guardian: King Caesar. The two engaged in a heated battle that destroyed the rest of the Ryukyu Kingdom and killed many innocent citizens, as well as causing many of the other guardian to battle each other as well, causing chaos and unbalance. The battle was only stopped when a Cryog ship (having been shot down by a (Millennian UFO in Terra's orbit) crash landed nearby, causing Megalon to be pushed into a fissure by King Caesar.

After being trapped underground, Megalon falls into a coma. At some point after the destruction of the Ryukyu Kingdom, humans began to tunnel underground and discovered the comatose Megalon. These people began to build and underground city and worshiped Megalon as a god. These people would become the Seatopians and their city would be called Seatipia .

In 1973, a Monarch team is sent Okinawa to find evidence of King Caesar's exitance. They instead find the tunnel that lead to the now ancient ruins of Seatopia and finding Megalon, who is still in a coma after thousands of years. As they set up camp to study Megalon and the ruins, nearby weapons tests done by military forces begin to sir Megalon, reawakening the monster. Megalon killed the Monarch team and destroyed the Seatopian ruins before roaming across Terra.
