Kaiju Big Battel: More Better Fighto!
I have seen some pretty incredible things in my time. And I'm no stranger to the bizarre wonder that is Kaiju Big Battel. Regardless-nothing could prepare me for the knock-down, drag-out, balls to the wall awesome that was More Better Fighto!
The Warsaw in Brooklyn was packed to the Styrofoam gills that night, teeming with fans of KBB; itching for action. This was one itch that was well and truly scratched.
Master of Ceremonies Louden Noxious didn't disappoint. His hair gel exploits have grown to Goku-like proportions. I am not exaggerating. The ever-taciturn referee Jingi was on hand to make sure the rules of good conduct were observed. Bless 'im.
The show itself got off to a beautiful start; a fully produced music video was shown on both screens; followed by Louden Noxious taking center stage.
The program's second battel took place first, with Dusto Bunny and Powa Ranjuru being soundly trounced by Giii the Space Pirate and the brand-spankin' new Sekmet.
The break-out star of the night came next, as Steam Powered Tentacle Boulder took to the ring to flatten French Toast (a walking waffle). He proceeded to trash-talk his pastry opponent and promised he'd be back for seconds.
In the tandem title fight, Hell Monkey and D.W. Cycloptopuss III were no match for the patriotic teamwork of American Beetle and Neo Teppen. Louden was only too happy to point out that the One-Eyed Monsters would have stood a better chance if they'd actually worked together.
The now-evil Silver Potato was in for a nasty surprise during his fight with the pathetic Super Wrong, as he was abducted by the Iron Brothers, hired (with a comically big sack of money) by the remaining Plantain Brother, Pedro.
What followed on the big screen was truly outstanding: A Zombified Pablo Plantain tore Silver Potato apart, and snacked on his entrails. Kaiju Starch is good, and good for ya.
**END OF SPOILERS**
The infamous (and now British) Dr. Cube made his necessary appearance, introducing his latest Kaiju creation Tucor: all the deadly powers of the Toucan and Gerbil, combined in one package. Nevertheless, this mutant hybrid was no match for Hero In Training.
The last fight of the night was an absolute melee; Uchu Chu vs. the spikey arachnid-faced Call-Me-Kevin. This match was by far the longest of the evening, and well worth it. CMK finally obliterated Uchu Chu to claim the inestimable Kaiju Championship Belt.
Every single person that showed up for More Better Fighto! got their money's worth. There wasn't a disappointed fan in the house. Showmanship, wrestling action, dark humor with a healthy dollop of on-screen gore… and free T-Shirts.
Kaiju Big Battel has outdone itself. The evening was absolutely fantastic. For more information about Studio Kaiju, check out their official web site. Check out the rest of our own Kaiju coverage. And stay tuned for a video podcast of this event! Coming right after Thanksgiving.
