'''Negadon, The Monster from Mars''' is [[AllCGICartoon a short CGI film]] that [[GenreThrowback pays homage]] to the [[{{Kaiju}} Giant Monster]] movies from the 1960s. This includes having a grainy-old-film look, spaceships that look like toy models, etc. Despite this, its story is played completely straight and the quality of the graphics is very high.

The story takes place in the future, when humanity begins exploring Mars for colonization. They find a strange object there and, [[TooDumbToLive of course]], bring it back to Earth, where it turns into a monster and starts destroying Tokyo. A scientist named Dr. Narasaki, who has been in seclusion ever since the accidental death of his small daughter, is stirred into action and brings his old [[HumongousMecha giant robot]] out of storage to fight this menace.

!!Tropes in this film:

* HeroicSacrifice: Narasaki takes the battle to the space, knowing that he is unlikely to return.
* HumansAreBastards: Narasaki blames mankind for bringing Negadon upon themselves. Then again he's [[UnreliableNarrator not exactly in the mood to be fair.]]
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: "May my final gift to humanity...be sending you to oblivion!"
* RetroFuture
* SharedUniverse: With {{Planzet}}, that takes place 22 years later.
* ShoutOut:
** A close up of a moth might be a homage to ''Film/{{Mothra}}''.
** Narasaki is a scientist with a missing eye (he has a bionic replacement) and has the only weapon capable of killing the monster but refuses to use it, [[Film/{{Gojira}} sound familiar?]]
* StarfishAliens: Negadon is an alien monster that's not even vaguely humanoid and resembles some form of shellfish more than anything else on Earth.
* SuperRobot: The Miroku was created to be an exploration and construction device, not a weapon, but it still came even with built-in drills and a (sort of) RocketPunch.
* {{Terraforming}}: What people planned to do with Mars.
* ThisIsADrill: The Miroku 2's primary weapon is an arm mounted drill.
* TokyoFireBall: Negadon lands in Tokyo like a meteor, causing a huge crater, then proceeds to obliterate everything in its path.
* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: The story takes place in 2025.
* TheUnreveal: The alien monster is never named within the film itself.
