Gfantis is a fan-made kaiju created by Daikaiju Enterprise, the publisher of the G-Fan fanzine. He is the mascot of G-Fest and has appeared in fan-films and fanfiction. He is the main character of the fan film, Death Game.
Though Gfantis resembles a dinosaur, he is unlike any presently-known species, and possesses some mammalian traits.
Gfantis was “born” in the explosion of an experimental solar power plant on the south seas island of Kalihama, but his origin lies shrouded in confusion to this day. Gfantis was scientifically named “Gigantosaurus fantasticus” by professor Hank Taupier. Though the name can properly be abbreviated to G. fantasticus, reporter Sly Lyson further contracted it to Gfantis, and the name stuck. Gfantis has taken on a variety of opponents around the globe and is currently the subject of intense observation and study.
Gfantis vs. THING
Empress Zagi, leader of an alien civilization unleashes her monster, Shirakuna, onto Japan. The military tries to intervene, but their efforts are futile. After rampaging and causing a complete evacuation of the city, a man stands up and transforms into Gfantis, and immediately engages the monster. After a short battle, it appears Gfantis has been defeated. Shirakuna drags Gfantis's body away, leaving it behind. The next day, a group of scientists figure out a way to revive Gfantis, and no sooner then that night, the operation is put in place and succeeds, reviving Gfantis. After the military shocks Shirkuna with electricity, paralyzing it, Gfantis begins to pound on the monster, mercilessly beating it to death and finishing it off with a beam of electricity, causing it to explode. Gfantis roars in victory as the film ends.
Gfantis appears during MechaGfantis and King Usagi's fight. He get's blasted by the mecha's weaponry before running in for a gut punch. Gfantis puts him in a hold as King Usagi decapitates the mecha, causing it to collapse and explode. Gfantis and King Usagi are then congratulated by a couple of children.
To be added.
Godzilla Battle Royale
In the fan film Godzilla Battle Royale, Gfantis is a space monster. He first appears in the film when arriving on Earth alongside Mothra to battle the mind-controlled Kaiju of Earth. Gfantis, alongside Mothra, battled the Kaiju for until the control over them was broken and they reverted to their normal selves. Once this happened, Gfantis aided the Earth Kaiju against Queen Xaxious's monsters. After a long battle, Gfantis and the Earth Kaiju defeated the alien monsters, winning the battle. Gfantis further aided Earth's Kaiju in the final battle against Queen Ghidorah, and returned to space once the Earth had been saved and the battle was over.
