Godzilla (ゴジラ, Gojira) is an irradiated prehistoric amphibious reptile kaiju who first appeared in the 2004 film, Godzilla: Final Wars. He is the main anti-heroic kaiju protagonist of the film.
This Godzilla was awakened by nuclear testing in 1954, and declared war on humanity.
Sometime in the 1960's, the EDF lured Godzilla to Antarctica where he gets buried and frozen by the Gotengo.
When the Xiliens unleash monsters around the world, the Gotengo was sent out to free Godzilla, when it was believed that Godzilla is the only force capable of defeating the Xiliens' monster army. Godzilla was freed, but was attacked by Gigan, who Godzilla quickly defeated. Godzilla then follows the Gotengo, believing his battle with the Gotengo from decades ago was still going on, and it lead him to fight and defeat almost all of the Xiliens' monsters eventually ending up in Tokyo. When Godzilla sees the Gorath asteroid that was sent earlier by Controller X, he attempts to destroy it using his atomic breath which caused an explosion that reduced the city to a crater. As Godzilla stands in the ruins of Tokyo, Monster X, the monster that was inside the Gorath astroid, descended to the ground behind him, both monsters then do battle with each other, but it turns out Monster X was more than a match for Godzilla, capable of fighting with incredible speed and ferocity. Mothra then appears to assist Godzilla, only to be confronted by a newly repaired Gigan. Mothra eventually defeats Gigan, and Godzilla eventually gains the upper hand against Monster X.
After the Xilien Mothership self-destructed, Godzilla and Monster X get locked into a beam battle, which resulted in an explosion knocking both monsters opposite sides of the city. Monster X then transforms into Keizer Ghidorah, and begins to overpower Godzilla and then proceed to drain his energy, only to be overwhelmed when Ozaki used the Gotengo's Maser Cannon to fire his Keizer energy into Godzilla's back. Godzilla eventually fights back and finally defeat and destroy Keizer Ghidorah with his spiral ray.
Afterwards, he shoots the Gotengo with his Atomic Breath, causing the ship to crash. Before Godzilla could kill the EDF's remaining forces, Minilla steps in and stops his father from making any more attacks. Godzilla finally forgave humanity and turned around and walked out to the sea, with Minilla following him.

- Like the Godzilla from Godzilla 2000: Millennium, this Godzilla is often mistakenly believed to be the adult Godzilla Junior from the end of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, due to the monsters featured in Godzilla: Final Wars being scaled to 100 meters like the Heisei series and the stock footage of the adult Junior being shown in the film's opening credits. However, it's important to note that Final Wars is set in it's own continuity that has no connection to the Heisei series and the Final Wars Godzilla is stated to have first appeared in 1954, while Godzilla Junior was not born until 1994.
