Frankenstein's Mega-Monster


Frankenstein's Monster might might frighten simple villagers, but it takes a truly monstrous monster to present a challenge for a Giant Space Robot. Luckily, advances in technology have allowed mad scientist to play god on a titanic scale.

An everyday Giant Frankenstein's Monster might use zombie stats (bearing in mind they everything is giant in Giant Space Robot). A regular Giant Frankenstein's Monster energized by radiation or lightning, or one that is actually an alien is a more formidible foe and should be statted like a flesh golem.

The size makes me wonder what bits might be used, and how available they'd be.

Maybe the creator would have to resort to megafuana for parts? If so, how many individuals there were locally could determine how consistent the creature's form is - if there are too few of one type, the monster could end up a mix of hide, scale and plate, varied limb construction, tentacles etc.

In that case, the creator might even go with the flow and opt for a less conventional form, maybe with multiple skeletons to hold it all up, various heads and colaborating nervous systems, and so on. It could get very gruesome...

Radiation, dude. It'll kill a few specimens for sure, but then you just chop them for parts and sew the bits together. Presto!

Great movie to reference. the war of the Gargantuas is also a good one to look at, though I think we've kicked that one around previously, it does seem to be a good potential fit for Giant Space Robot. a variation of Smith's Colossus of Ylourgne might also be kind of fun...and you can look back to a classic module for basic stats, or how about Joog, Giant of Mars? There's a patchwork necromantic colossus--on Mars/Barsoom! you can never have enough opponents and monsters when you're playing Giant Space Robots.

But what happens when your Giant Space Robot also happens to be a Giant Frankenstein's Monster, like so...?!!!
