View Full Version : Monster Types You'd Like to See in Games?
October 18th, 2004, 05:56 AM
Out of curiosity, if a sequel to "War of the Monsters" or another kaiju inspired game came out which like WotM featured original characters over licensed ones was made, what kind of monster archetypes or species would you like to see in it?

I'd like to finally see a crustacian in it like Ebirah. An arachnid like a scorpian, perhaps? Plus, seeing a mammal like a wherewolf would be neat! I know there's an ape(which is cool), but it's been used before.

Id like to see a more creative Insectoid Kaiju...not just a praying mantis/ant. Id love to see more quadruped Kaiju as well, they add a different element to battle. Another cool addition would be something along the lines of a Hedorah-type or Blob-like monster.

a blobbish monster, or a swamp monster.. a giant undead monster.. and ultra-man style monster.. a Gamera style monster..

a mobile plant
a flying reptile\arthropod hybrid
a gazoto type monster
a zombie creature
a fish thing
a mutant bird
an alien hunter (like a giant predator)

A Crab or something, a Plant, a Spider, a Scorpion, a Blob, the Boss Monsters from the first game,and another Dragon, one different from Raptros.
They could also make some improvments to the game, including the ability to swim undewater, and the levels being alot bigger, different long range super powers for some of the monsters too.

Here are monsters I want to see
A triceratops or a brachiosaurus kaiju
A gargoyle looking kaiju
An octopus or squid kaiju
A bat kaiju
A monkey kaiju, not gorilla. Like kong, but smaller,faster, and with a tail
A iguana kaiju or some other large lizard that crawls
A dimetradon kaiju, he could get energy or health from the sun
A grizzly or polar bear kaiju, bears rule
A jaguar or lion or tiger or some other big cat kaiju

yeah definately need a brachiosaur, gargoyle,dimetrodon,bat, some mammalien kaiju, and a tric.
also need a tentacle monster
a giant snake
a big annelid
a giant brain
a giant telekenetic sea urchine
a massive starfish
a humanoid shark
plus an option to make monsters cyborg
and I agree with omega17 larger levels, underwaster levels, underwater scenery, longer range powers and all that.
plus, how about an option to pick up civilians?

These are some ideas I have for new creatures in the game "War of the Monsters 2" if it is ever made...
Mecha Togera- Like MechaGodzilla to Godzilla, missiles, lasers, the whole shibang.
Giant Spider- An old 50's Kaiju needs to be in a game based on old 50's Kaiju.
Two Headed Ogre Thing- Just sound cool and a good fighter.
Giant Two Legged Scorpion- Who doesn't want some sort of dinosaur/scorpion hybrid?
Giant Eagle- Just seems bad ***.
Giant Fish/Shark- Just seems bad ***.
Some sort of Crab or Lobster- Just seems bad ***.
Giant Wolf Thing- Ralph was cool in "Rampage" but not cool enough...
Giant Lion/Tiger/Panther Thing- If ya have a dog...ya need a cat.
Four Legged Dragon- Just seems bad ***.
Gigan Like Creature- Just seems bad ***, maybe a blade for one hand and a pick for the other and a sharp fork tail.
Megalon Like Creature- Drills? YEA BABY!
Ghidorah Like Creature- YEA BABY!
Gamera Like Creature- If ya have a Goji and Kong spin off...ya need a Gammy one also.
Baragon Like Creature- Theres not enough dinosaur kaiju in the game...

Ok, I know this is an old thread but I hafta get this down here.
I put alot of thought into the list and I have comprised a list of monsters by archetype that should fulfill the lists of the others.
reptile: Togera, save for the new addition that his mech costume's energy balls are replaced with fireballs and his beam is replaced with a yellow eyebeam.
The second would be a crawling reptile. Costume one would be a sortof lizard\anguirus thing that spits solar blasts. The second costume would be more dimetrodon-like, the third a sortof Baragon-ish with ankylosaurus dorsal armor and large digging claws. The fourth would be a carnivorous triceratops thing with a jiger-like fin.
Insect: Preytor ofcourse, nothing more, nothing less...well exept for a different set of flying controls.
The other bug would be a combination of a giant tarantula, a giant yellow and black tropical spider, a giant lobster with asymmetrical pincers, and finally an black emperor scorpion.
Golem: Agamo and magmo already fit nicely.
Mech: Again, robo47 and UltraV fit nicely. We already have a LOT of mechs here.
Inorganic Humanoid: Kineticlops will do for slot one. The bioelectric blasts already fit an amphibian beast, he shouldn't need new powers really.
The second would actually be my own creation, a creature called Mudon(a play on the japanese word for waste). A humanoid mound of toxic chemicals. His head is an amoeba-esque nucleus. Basicly he can shoot corrosive blasts of his own body.
Mammal: Congar works for slot one. Well maybe give mecha Congar a concussive, multicolored energy burst instead of the typical sonic roar.
The next will alternate between costume 1: A black\grey werewolf, 2: A humanoid lion, 3:A feminine humanoid tigress and 4: Slashfang, a giant humanoid sabertooth tiger.
Mythical Beast: Raptros with a twist. Costume 2 is a quadraped and costume three has three heads!
The next is another costume alternation, 1 is a chimera with the heads of a lion and a goat with a snake for a tail and wings. The next is a griphon, then a winged manticore and finally a cerberus! One with a mane of snakes around each head, a row of spinal snakes and a snake for a tail! It breathes fire too.
Ornith: The first one is a giant bird of prey, costume one being a golden eagle, 2, an archeopteryx, 3, a giant falcon and 4, a flaming phoenix!!
Add in a blue pterosaur that spits sonic orbs, A red fire rodan type, a black cyborg one and an undead one with monster X style skin.
Heisei Style: Megaguirus\battra\destroyah! Well the first one is a sorta green quasi-reptilian beast with a greenish exoskeleton, large wings,lots sharp spines and a barbed tail. The next costume is reddish and crustaceanlike, a large horn and a tail pincer. Like a hybrid of all destroyah's forms. The third is purple wiith big bug eyes and pincer hands as well as four dangling, insectile legs. This costume would normally hover just off the ground while the other two walked. The thing can spit a green glowing corrosive matter.
Then how about a twisted Togera clone? A massive blue one with crystaline spikes, a grey, big-handed orga style beast, then a biollante-ish foliar togera with tentacles. Maybe a frakenstein's monster style twisted stitched together togera as well.
Humanoid: One is a colossal man type with a missing eye and an improvised toga, then fifty foot woman with shredded bare midriff outfit, then an ogre and finally a two headed ogre thing.
Next an ultraman style hero with a variety of colors.
Alien: Zorgulon of course!
Then a sort of gigan\megalon creature, the first costume having bladed hooks for hands, the second having drills and the third having a pickaxe and a giant pylon. It would have a shiny exoskeleton and maybe a burrowing ability.
The bosses should also be playable if possible.
As stated, a moon arena, an ocean and jurassic park style arenas as well.

Probably a nemesis type monster (Like monster X or Spacegodzilla)
Or a blob
or a plant
October 28th, 2008, 08:51 PM
No one remembers Vegon?:dontgetit Anyways..........(remember these are look alikes not actuals)
Giant Frog (Kraa!:p)
Giant Leprechaun for a joke character
Something like a kyoshin from Neo Ranga, an Ibuki look alike would fit perfectly
Giant Guinea Pig (South Park presents Pandemic!:p)
Add something like Mizuchi from Monster as a boss character. That and maybe killer ice cream.
Iron B-Movie will? I want something like titanium silver gosh darn it and I think this list proves it.:sly:

I love threads like this. Here's some of my War of the Monsters 2 character suggestions. Admittedly, some of them are kind of goofy:
1. Some sort of bipedal insect creature- a cockroach or a rhinoceros beetle (or both).
2. An Anguirus-like armadillo monster that can roll up into a spiked ball.
3. An giant personification of an Egyptian god, like Anubis (the jackal-headed one) or Ra (the falcon-headed one).
3. A turtle monster, but perhaps not a Gamera clone with flight capabilities. For the sake of something different, maybe he could have ice-based powers, like a freezing beam or something.
4. A giant squid or octopus. Could possess the ability to slowly regenerate health while in the water.
5. Some sort of enormous, undead zombie thing- perhaps its body is made of from a collection of corpses that have all merged together into a single, misshapen form (hmmm. Maybe that's a bit too grotesque) .
6. A stone, winged sphinx. Capable of short bursts of flight and gliding. Can fire rocks from its body as a ranged attack.
7. A giant hamster in a huge, clear ball (this could be a goofy unlockable "hidden" character in the game)
8. An amorphous blob
9. A bipedal jackalope creature
10. A 50-foot woman character, although with some sort of odd theme like a cheerleader or dominatrix instead of the standard "bedsheet bikini" costume.
11. Some manner of condor/bird like The Giant Claw
12. A giant Japanese superhero character like Ultraman or Kamen Rider.
13. Some kind of crystalline alien
14. A giant brain with tentacle-like stalks. Utilizes various psychic powers like telekinesis and mind blasts.
15. A bipedal wooly mammoth, perhaps brandishing a club made from an uprooted tree.
16. A giant spider or scorpion would be nifty.
17. A huge Frankenstein's monster-inspired creature (a sort of tribute to the unmade King Kong verses Frankenstein movie). Could be partially mechanical to allow for a greater diversity of attacks.
18. A venus flytrap plant creature, perhaps multi-headed.

Nice Monster ideas. Out of those, I would really like to see 3, 4, 5, 14, 16, 17, and 18 used in the next War of the Monsters. I really hope they do make a sequel.
