Gigan is a chicken like alien cyborg. He appeared in Godzilla vs. Gigan (a.k.a Godzilla on Moster Island or Godzilla in War of the Monsters) controlled by the Space Hunter Nebula Aliens. He also appeared in Godzilla vs. Megalon on Megalon's side. The movies were filmed in 1972 and in 1973. He later appeared in Godzilla: Final Wars. He got upgraded later in the movie.
Gigan has a whole arsenal of weapons. It should be noted that Gigan has hammer claws where his hands should be and is a cyclops with one red eye. He has a laser device on his forehead that can shoot a laser. Unfortunatley, this never appeared in a movie due to those scenes being deleted. He does have this power in Godzilla: Final Wars in the form of the Cluster Light beam and the laser device replaced with a ruby. The cluster light beam also exploded into mini lasers when it got close to an opponent as opposed to the straight laser beam. He also has a buzzsaw in his abdomen that he can make rotate at will that can gouge an opponent. He can also fly at mach 400 in space and at mach 3 on earth. He can also encase himself in a protective blue diamond while traveling through space. Gigan has a tail spike that he never used in combat. He can also be equiped with explosives at his claw tips. In Godzilla: Final Wars, he has grappling hooks that he can launch off his hands and pull an opponent in, and the tail spike changed to a pincer. When he got upgraded (known as Power Up Gigan) his hammer claws were replaced with two chainsaw like slicers. He could also function without his head and fire two rotating blades from his shoulders.
