Possible Opponents[]


Varan is an ancient reptilian creature known as a Varanopode, which lived from the Triassic through Cretaceous Periods. Varan escaped extinction and lived for millions of years at the bottom of a lake in the Japanese countryside. The local villagers of the lake worshipped him as a god. Varan eventually awoken from his slumber and destroyed the village. The Japanese military arrived and surrounded the lake, and opened fire on Varan after luring him out with chemicals but failed. Varan eventually glided away and made his way to Tokyo Bay and began to destroy Tokyo. Varan was eventually defeated when he allowed a bomb that exploded within him and then being stuck by another bomb. Varan would appear later on in the Godzilla universe, becoming an earth defender kaiju alongside the likes of Godzilla himself.
