(AKA: EDF Kiryu-I)

At first, Kiryu was a product of a temporary alliance between a race of aliens called Xaliens and the humans in return of the humans effort for helping them get home. The Xaliens earned their trust by dispatching Godzilla momentarily, so as a fair share of the humans intention to help them, they build Kiryu, an anti-Kaiju mech made to top any monster even Godzilla himself. But the Xaliens mask were soon torn away and revealed their true intentions. The teleporter that the humans built was actually no for the Xaliens to go home but for their fleets to be transported. Kiryu was all along a part of their invasion as X, the Xalien leader, controls it via mother ship and sent out their own kaiju, a bladed assassin called Gigan. Together, Kiryu and Gigan attack Tokyo and nearly put the city into rubbles only to awaken Godzilla again and attack the two machines into smithereens.
Kiryu and Gigans remains were stored away in the deepest of EDFs base. By the near end of 2009, Gigan and Kiryu mysteriously disappeared. The guards were baffled, as well as the EDF themselves.
Soon another raid was planned and now, Kiryu returns with improvements and with an ally, a vermillion aquatic dinosaur named Titanosaurus. Although the raid almost went beautifully, Godzilla still got the upper hand and wins the battle with Kiryu down to scrap metal and beyond repair and Titanosaurus out of his enslavement. Ever since then, the Xaliens abandoned using the mech from any operations and left it on Earth.
But the Humans found use for the fallen robot. For 4 years, EDF had talked about mech productions and Kiryu was on the line. He came in third of the slots, with Moguera and Mech Ghidorah prior to him and another, The Asuka Fortress next in line. By 2014, Kiryu was reborn as an Earth Defender, ironically its purpose in the beginning.

(Note: Kiryu here , unlike his Toho Original, wasnt made over Godzillas bones. Although the original Godzillas bones do left intact to the earth or at this case the bottom of the ocean, it was never recovered. The version here shows both Showa and Heisei origins, as well as the likeness of the Kiryu design. So to put it simple, this is all mech-G in one!)
