Pagos is the monster set to have once appeared in the suburb of Beijing to attack a uranium storage facility as the monster feeds on uranium.
Pagos breathes out a molecular structure destruction beam that looks like a golden rainbow to the human eye, and the rainbow came out in Japan while sasame bamboo flowers bloomed by coincidence on the same occasion whose blooming is alleged to be ominous.
After Pagos tried to go at a uranium transporter vehicle, the uranium capsule came off and fell down a cliff.
And a girl, Piiko (Hikaru Shirakawa), mistook the capsule for the rainbow’s egg while she heard and believed that it would make any dream come true, and she attempted to drag it to her grandmother on wheelchair so that the egg could enable the old woman to walk.
While Pagos failed to attack the girl, the monster made its way for the futuristic industrial city under construction with a nuclear power plant.
The shots of the Neo Neutron Missiles, however, decayed Pagos instantly.
At the sight of the girl who came back safely, the old woman stood up from the wheelchair spontaneously and walked steps toward her in delight (I always find these scenes so moving).
The capsule truly turned out to be the rainbow’s egg for them (aside from whether allowing a uranium capsule to be dragged by a girl is appropriate or not by today’s standards).
Although it’s a monster remodeled from Toho’s Baragon, Pagos is quite an attractive kaiju that looks so massive and stately (no surprise because it was played by Haruo Nakajima, the original Godzilla actor).
That’s why both Pagos and Gavora are the monsters feeding on uranium and Gavora was dealt with as a monster already known by people in that episode.
