King Ghidorah and Neo Pandon - Cosmic Tyrants by earthbaragon King Ghidorah and Neo Pandon - Cosmic Tyrants by earthbaragon
*Sigh*…..this is another big illustration from me that depicts two of the most powerful villains ever in the history of the kaiju world. While I was drawing this, my immediate opinion was that Neo Pandon would have this in the bag. After all, he is a monster that has trounced Ultraseven in nearly every battle they have had. But as I colored and shaded it (which was a looooooooooong time), it got me to thinking of the abilities and prowess of the original Showa King Ghidorah. So…here is my breakdown of the two demons.

Neo Pandon is the reconstructed form of the original deceased Pandon from Ultraseven. So already this monster is greater in every which way that made the original Pandon so deadly. Neo Pandon’s best strength, is in fact lies with his brawn and physicality. His muscled body has unbelievable power. This monster loves to make things close quarters, and just rind his foes limb from limb with his strength. He even was able to capture Ultraseven’s Eye slugger in midair! A metal blade weapon that is surrounded by energy when it is thrown. Normally it would slice through any foe, but against Pandon, it get’s turn into a baseball it can catch. But don’t let this fool you, Pandon is more than just a gladiator like monster. He has plenty of abilities for distance battles. Each of his heads can fire a concentrated stream of fire, as well as spit explosive fireballs. Each attack contains lots of heat and power; able to destroy an entire landscape in a volley of fiery hate. Add his long muscular tail, and ability to tunnel underground, Neo Pandon is a triumphing foe that can deal with any challenge.

King Ghidorah is a space beast that found it’s origins in the deepest of Space. Not only can this creature fly incredibly well (he can take off from a standing position without so much as a single flap of his wings), he can survive the ice cold and airless environment of the countless nebulas. Each head can shoot an “anti-gravity beam” (seriously the hell makes this things anti-gravity?), that can wipe out a city in moments. His body is bulky and sturdy, able to slam into foes at nearly mach 2, without so much as a scratch on him. His scales give the monster a serious edge when dealing with projectiles thrown at him. He walked towards Godzilla, even though he blasted him twice with his nuclear breath on Planet X! It didn’t even make him hesitate. His energy bolts though seem to vary in strength. They can destroy a city in seconds and even stop a charging Gorosaurus in his tracks. But they doesn’t seem to faze Godzilla at all. Don’t even knock him over in their first battle. Still, they are more often depicted with limitless power, than the later of which instance that I pointed out. But they are shown to have more……force than heat.

If Neo Pandon could get in close, there is no argument he would do damage. But that is the question. Ghidorah has proven that he likes to keep his enemies at a distance. Even though those heads are always wiping around, the dragon has proven that he does have aim. Better aim than Neo Pandon. The dragon’s blasts are certainly more powerful than Pandon’s fires. But like I said they do not have a lot of heat or energy behind them. They are more like a powerful hammer just slams into things. He unleashes enough of them though to weather down any foe. Pandon’s on the other hand are explosive heat. Fire and energy that Ghidorah proved he can survive against when he was born from the hell flames of his meteor home, and Godzilla’s nuclear breath. Also, with his quick ability of flight at a moment’s breath, the three headed beast has speed to his advantage. The only way Pandon could finish off Ghidorah is if he got in close. But that is a big “if”, if he could. Ghidorah has shown he can take a heck of a lot of brutal physical punishments against foes that dare to stand right next to him. The more I think of it, the more I just favor the Toho monster. His energy beams might not kill Pandon right off hand, but they would with barrage after barrage.

So, final verdict for me…………The original Gold King of Terror, Showa King Ghidorah, triumphs against the newly Revived Twin Head Beast, Neo Pandon.

Woah………..I’m tired now. Nap time time! I feel sad when I nap on my day off of work, but sue me :P Making this piece with the clean shading and line work took alot outta me :)

Nice work on Ghidorah & Pandon! I agree its strange that Ghidorah's breath attacks are called Gravity Beams since they usually work & act like lightning bolts (though in modern years they seem to have actual anti-grav traits...Since electricity doesn't work in open space I guess they could be some alien form of energy unknown to us?).

Just finished watching it with dinner tonight, and I can see why ya said the monsters were cute in a demented sort of way, they remind me of a cross between Cybermats and Tribbles XD

I'll admit the premise of the Brain Eaters being subterranean monsters rather than space invaders is a nice twist, more clever than what you'd usually expect from Roger Corman (kinda like a Doctor Who or Ultraman inspired plot, just not as well executed obviously lol). It was an amusing watch, definitely the sort of film the crew of the Satellite of Love would have riffed on in Mystery Science Theater, thanks for the link :D

Neon Landon. Wow. You never hear about him, despite the fact that he is the coolest incarnation of Pandon. You are a true master of obscure kaijus. By the way, you have caused me to start obsessing about Kingstron, a kaiju I haven't thought about in years. Ghidorah looks great. Awesome work as always.

Awesome! You really did a great job drawing this piece! They both came out very very well and i really like how you drew them! I also really love the diversity and clarity of the colors you used too! I've never heard of Pandon before. He does look very strong and muscular but how can he tear enemies apart with those tiny arms lol? If he had longer arms and more fingers/claws then i could see him being very deadly. He does look really really cool though. I would have to give the win to Ghidirah though. Hes much more of a tank than Pandon is and has the reputation to back it up too. Not only that but i think Ghidorah is way bigger too. So yeah, im going to side with my pal Ghidorah on this one. Really really awesome job on this piece! :)

KG is way bigger than most folks :P ,usually has about 50 meters on someone easy. The arms for Pandon are actually normal size for his body. It is just those freaking necks are so long (ala like Titanosaurus) that they look smaller in comparison.

And what can I say....I'm a color whore :) I love that color wheel! :)

:icongroudan383:
Groudan383 Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
I know. Hes significantly bigger than most kaiju. Like you said he easily tends to have over 50 meters in height over the other guys. I think the only two other kaiju that match his height were Biollente and Bagan.

As for Pandon i still think his arms are too short. His long necks arent really a problem. I mean if you made his necks shorter his arms would still look short regardless. Titano's arms look fine on him its just that Pandon's look drastically short. Pandon does look really cool though. How big is he?

Color whore? Thats the first time i've ever heard of that lol. I wonder how another artist would react if i said that to them lol. But i can tell you love them colors :)

So in Fantasy game terms (skyrim, WOW) they're defensive tank mages, but Neo-Pandon would excel at hand to hand in a slow to moderate pace of speed and very deliberate fighting style....I would guess his favorite melee attack would be to grab an enemie's arm as they threw a punch and then break it?

I can't remember but I seem to remember him nearly breaking the Ultra's arm. He likes to peck with his twin heads, that and just hammer fist the hell outta an opponent.

Hey bro, cool pic, nice colors. Ghidorah's scales look like feather's though, and at a distance his anti gravity beams look like fire. The other villain actually looks friendly in the face. He looks friendly and good but serious, so he would be perfect for a kid's show with some benevolent seriousness and bite.
Asides from that, great faces, attention to detail and out of this world debriefing on the situation.
The things I said weren't necessarily criticisms, it just may not have been exactly what you were going for.

:iconearthbaragon:
earthbaragon Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Critiques are welcome. The piece is far from perfect. I would do Ghidorah's beam more like the lightning bolt it is suppose to be and I would do something different with his scales. Can't spend forever on a piece though. Just have to be happy with it, learn from the mistakes and move on to the next :)

The only strange thing about that in the film is his death. He doesn't breath, so He did not die from asphyxiation. And he should have been fine even with one head dead, unless his nervous system is really that delicate. My guess is that head got it's neck broke by the Big G stepping on it. Still he can take energy blasts and military might without a scratch. It would be difficult for any none god-like being from the Ultra-verse to beat him. I'm sure Dinozaur would though :)
