Hero Overview

Nature has an order. A Power to restore balance. I believe he is that power.
~ Serizawa describing Godzilla.

Godzilla, also dubbed Titanus Gojira, is one of the main kaiju protagonists of the MonsterVerse franchise alongside King Kong. He first appeared serving as one of the main protagonists of the 2014 film of the same name alongside Ford Brody. He also appeared as a cave painting in the 2017 film Kong: Skull Island. In the 2019 sequel Godzilla: King of the Monsters, he once again returns as the main kaiju protagonist. He reappears as one of the two main kaiju protagonists in the 2021 film Godzilla vs. Kong in which he fights both Kong and Mechagodzilla.

A colossal reptilian apex predator hailing from a time in Earth's past where surface radiation levels were considerably higher, Godzilla retreated deep underwater as this radiation declined to feed on the planet's natural geothermal radiation. Godzilla occasionally surfaced throughout history, inspiring some of humanity's mythology. In the 20th century, the advent of the nuclear age drew Godzilla to the surface along with the deadly Shinomura, attracting the attention of the American military, which carried out a campaign of nuclear strikes against the two clashing monsters in the South Pacific under the guise of nuclear testing.

While Shinomura was vaporized by the blast of the Castle Bravo hydrogen bomb, Godzilla survived and vanished up until 2014 when parasitic creatures from his time period dubbed MUTOs were unleashed and prepared to begin reproducing. Godzilla hunted the MUTOs down to San Francisco, where he engaged in a protracted battle which ended when he killed them both and returned to the ocean.

After subsequently slaying the MUTOs' mother, MUTO Prime, Godzilla disappeared into the depths of the ocean for five years, though Monarch kept tabs on him. When a group of eco-terrorists awakened his ancient nemesis Ghidorah from his icy tomb in Antarctica, Godzilla confronted the newly-awakened three-headed Titan. Ghidorah escaped their first battle, but Godzilla tracked him down to the waters off of Mexico and nearly defeated him in an underwater clash before being interrupted by the military's Oxygen Destroyer.

Godzilla retreated to his underwater lair to heal, but his rejuvenation was accelerated by the sacrifice of Dr. Ishiro Serizawa, who set off a thermonuclear warhead in his vicinity. Godzilla made his way to Boston for a final battle with Ghidorah, and with the help of Monarch and intervention of Mothra, was finally able to triumph. The surviving titans who had been following Ghidorah congregated around Godzilla and submitted to him; accepting him as the king of the titans.

Five years later, Godzilla began attacking Apex Cybernetics facilities, with humanity assuming he had turned against them. When Godzilla intercepted a Monarch-Apex joint fleet and attacked Kong, the battle was broken up by depth charges and Godzilla left the scene after the remains of the fleet "played dead" by shutting down their power and he no longer deemed Kong a threat.

Godzilla headed to Hong Kong after he sensed Mechagodzilla being activated and drilled a hole into the Hollow Earth with his atomic breath, allowing Kong to intercept him. After a brutal battle, Godzilla defeated Kong before battling Mechagodzilla, but was soon overwhelmed. The combined might of Godzilla and Kong, as well as some human interference, managed to defeat Mechagodzilla. Godzilla subsequently acknowledged Kong as an ally and returned to the ocean.

Godzilla was portrayed by T.J. Storm (who also played Colossus in Deadpool and its sequel Deadpool 2) via motion capture.

Personality

Unlike previous iteration of the kaiju, MonsterVerse version of Godzilla never demonstrated outright hostility towards humans every time he crossed paths with them, despite not being a gentle giant unlike his friend Mothra or rival Kong. Apparently having witnessed humanity's curious usage of nuclear power and even destructive capabilities with it during the hunt for Shinomura beforehand, the kaiju opted not to try to spark a conflict against them, even when they initially perceive him as a threat and attacked him in some occasions. Although he was responsible for some human deaths and destruction throughout his hunt for two MUTOs, it was all simply the result of his overall size and collateral damage from the fight against the two titans. Even the destruction of the Golden Gate Bridge during the aforementioned hunt could've been avoided had the military allowed him to find the way to get past on his own.

However, Godzilla does display inquisitiveness toward humans in some occasions; he first noticed Ford Brody who apparently had something to do with MUTO couple abruptly leaving him for their ruined nest thus giving him an edge in fighting them before unknowingly saved Brody's life by killing the female MUTO. During Ghidorah's reign of terror over Earth's titans, he sees Serizawa approaching him and placing his hand on his face and later, leaning forward to inspect Mark Russell as if deducing that he brought the former into his home along with the nuclear bomb that revitalized him. As much as he preferred to avoid pointless conflict against humanity and even cared with them through discouraging his fellow titans from attacking human settlements upon becoming their alpha however, the events of Godzilla vs. Kong showed Godzilla indeed possesses the capacity to become more aggressive and violent as well as willingness to attack major human settlements if provoked, something Madison Russell acknowledged as it's not his nature to do so.

Godzilla's personality evokes that "last samurai" archetype, a lone ancient warrior content with solitude and preferring not to be a part of the world but has to resurface when certain types of events force him to appear and set things right (in Godzilla's own case, the imbalance of the nature of his home planet) befitting Ishiro Serizawa's theory of him as the driving force to restore balance to nature. Whenever that balance is disrupted, Godzilla would go on his way fighting any aggressors who threatened it regardless of the odds. This, in turn, led to Monarch describing his behavior as that of a "protector", calling him an "ancient guardian of the natural world". Whenever Godzilla is not enraged and in combat, Monarch describes him as "slow, graceful, inquisitive even".

Godzilla's most notable relationships with other titans are with MUTOs, Mothra, Ghidorah, and Kong. With Mothra, they are true allies, more so than their past incarnations that were prone to be at odds with each other since their species have symbiotic relationships with one another. This was evident through Mothra's undying loyalty towards him when other Titans were coerced to serve Ghidorah and Godzilla himself, in turn, avenged her defeat at the hands of their common enemy. With MUTOs in general, he perceived them as an uneasy ally at best (as some MUTOs such as the one that appeared in the events of King of the Monsters do respect him) and both deadly pests and natural enemy at worst. Lastly, in the case of Ghidorah and Kong, the two are Godzilla's fierce rivals as shown in various cave paintings for different reasons; whereas with the former their feud could be best described as the battle between light and darkness owing to the extraterrestrial titan's malicious nature, Godzilla and Kong battled each other because of their species' long standing rivalry but the two nevertheless willing to put aside their difference in facing a common threat. At the end of their alliance, Godzilla and Kong seemed ready to resume their struggle but ultimately chose to make peace and forget their shared resentment with Godzilla letting Kong rule the Hollow Earth while the King of the Monsters continued to rule over the Earth.

Godzilla's capability of forgiveness and leadership best showcased upon becoming the alpha titan once again; he spared Rodan despite the fact of the pterodactyl-like kaiju had previously served Ghidorah as his minion and severely injured Mothra as well as welcomed other titans when they swear their allegiance to him. After Ghidorah's defeat, he steered away any titans who got too close to human settlements. As revealed in Godzilla Dominion, the prequel comic to Godzilla vs. Kong, Godzilla had his fellow Titans return into dormancy upon sensing Ghidorah is still alive in some form, not wanting them inadvertently get into his way or worse, swayed by his revived nemesis once again and subsequently undo the very damage they undone together. When he defeated Kong, whom he then considered a rival, Godzilla chose to let him die of his wounds rather than finish him off as he always does. After the defeat of MechaGodzilla, Godzilla stopped seeing Kong as his enemy and the two parted ways.

Physical appearance

Like Godzilla's previous incarnations, he resembles a gigantic, bipedal, humanoid lizard, except his face is shaped very squarely while his neck is broad and possesses fish-like gills on its sides. His eyes are a yellow color, and his teeth are small and not nearly as straightly lined up as many previous Godzilla incarnations. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, whenever Godzilla charges his atomic breath, his eyes glow bright blue. Godzilla's nostrils are more separate than his previous incarnations, with them being on opposite sides of the snout, making it more reptile-like instead of the more mammalian fashion of being close together in front of it. Godzilla's head and neck seem to lean forward more so than any previous design. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, his head is slightly smaller. His dorsal fins are smaller than the previous designs, but still retain the core maple-leaf shape, although straighter and very razor-sharp. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Godzilla has larger, more jagged dorsal fins based on those of the 1954 Godzilla design. Godzilla's claws are a black color, and his feet are wider and resemble an elephant or sauropod's foot more than the other Godzilla's feet do. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, his feet are altered to more closely resemble those of past designs, with larger curved claws and each toe set more apart from each other. Godzilla's skin is more crocodile-like and rougher than his other incarnations and is a blackish color. His body and tail are very wide as well, making him look somewhat bulkier than other Godzilla designs. Godzilla's tail is considerably longer than most designs, and becomes very thin and pointed at the end. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, his tail is proportionately shorter compared to the rest of his body, although it is still longer than before, and ends with a rounded tip. In Godzilla vs. Kong, Godzilla is very similar to his King of the Monsters design, except the only differences are is that he has a rougher and spikier texture on his body.

In his Burning Godzilla form, Godzilla has orange and red cracks appearing throughout his body and his eyes glow orange when he is charging up a nuclear pulse.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Lizard Titan Physiology: As a titan, particularly the alpha titan, in resemblance to a lizard, Godzilla is incredibly powerful; as he possesses several physical and supernatural attributes that surpasses that of most other titans. The only titan who was capable of rivalling Godzilla in terms of "raw power"; was Ghidorah.
    • Advanced Strength: Godzilla is much stronger than humans and most other titans; for example, he is capable of smashing through the Golden Gate Bridge (though it was mostly accidental), can toss the M.U.T.O.s around with ease and he can effortlessly shove the female M.U.T.O backwards with his arms, similar to a bear. He is also proven to be strong enough to spin around, and throw the larger and heavier Ghidorah relatively easily as well as piercing his chest with a single stomp. The only titan who was capable of rivalling Godzilla in terms of "physical strength"; was Ghidorah and even he had much difficulty fighting Godzilla and was stated in the novelization and in the movie to have been trapped by him in Antarctica. Godzilla is also able to cause tsunamis just by going ashore despite his gigantic size. In Godzilla vs. Kong, Godzilla can cleave through and destroy navy battleships effortlessly, as well as being able to knock Kong over. He could also throw Kong several hundred feet away and smash through buildings as if they were made of cardboard. When he fought Mechagodzilla, Godzilla briefly matched his mechanical duplicate in strength by pushing him back after charging at the mecha, and managed to slam it through a nearby building with assistance from Kong.
    • Advanced Durability: Godzilla is far more durable than humans and most other titans; for example, it was stated that he survived exposure to the nuclear tests carried out in the South Pacific in the 1950s, even appearing to have withstood the detonation of Castle Bravo, a 15-megaton hydrogen bomb, at Bikini Atoll while directly next to the bomb. He is also immune to conventional weaponry such as heavy gunfire, missiles, tank shells, and various others and is tough enough to survive constant beatings from the two M.U.T.O.s. Godzilla even can survive several vicious attacks from Ghidorah, including several strikes from his gravity beams, being strangled and a fall from thousands of feet after being airlifted, though he is still weakened by the sheer amount of pain caused by the impact. The dorsal plates on Godzilla's back also acts as protective armor for him in combat, meaning that they are possibly meant to impale opponents that touch them.
    • Advanced Speed: Godzilla is much faster than humans and most other titans; for example, in the water, he can reach up to 40 knots, on land, Godzilla is able to run at great speeds when charging Ghidorah, running in a horizontal posture comparatively similar to that of a theropod dinosaur. Strangely at one point, Godzilla can be seen walking and running on fours in an almost crocodilian-like fashion to reach Kong.
    • Advanced Agility: Godzilla is far more agile than humans and most other titans; for example, he was agile enough by slamming the male M.U.T.O. into a skyscraper with his tail.
    • Advanced Stamina: Godzilla possesses far more stamina than humans and most other titans; allowing him to remain physically active for long periods of time.
    • Advanced Senses: Godzilla's senses are far more greatly developed than humans and most other titans; for example, he was able to track down the M.U.T.O.s' locations from the ocean by their mating calls and also capable of sensing the presence of Ghidorah inside Mechagodzilla, causing him to go on a hunt for his old enemy, recognising the mecha as a threat to the balance of nature.
    • Energy Absorption: Godzilla can absorb several different types of energy, particularly radiation; for example, the more energy Godzilla absorbs, the stronger/more powerful his physical and supernatural attributes become.
    • Accelerated Healing Factor: Due to the fact Godzilla can absorb energy, particularly radiation; he can heal/regenerate much faster, more extensively, and efficiently than humans and most other titans, depending on how serious his injuries are; for example, he was completely healed following the Battle of San Francisco, while it took him 5 years to completely heal from injuries inflicted on him by MUTO Prime.
    • Underwater Breathing: Since he possesses gills on his neck, Godzilla is capable of breathing underwater indefinitely, although he is certainly more than capable of breathing on land.
    • Cold Resistance: Godzilla is highly resistant to cold and freezing temperatures, especially in Antarctica even when he is fighting Ghidorah.
    • Heat Resistance: In his burning form, Godzilla is highly resistant to extreme heat as he is able to withstand burning temperatures.
    • Immortality: Godzilla has an infinite life span since he can never die and can live forever.
    • Bio-atomic Nature: Godzilla possesses natural bio-nuclear circulatory systems as with his species, instead of gaining it upon being irradiated by man-made nuclear which acts as the source of his nuclear-based powers. Activating when threatened, a neutron flux is triggered that travels up Godzilla's dorsal fins to nucleosynthetic chambers in his throat and explodes into his atomic breath. His radioactive signature also makes it easy for Godzilla to be followed and monitored.
    • Godzilla firing his atomic breath.

      Atomic Breath: Godzilla's weapon of choice is his atomic breath, a concentrated blue beam of pure radiation which he can generate, create and project from his mouth. In the 2014 film, it is strong enough to bring down and incapacitate the Eight-Legged M.U.T.O. in two shots and he often uses it as a final blow on his opponent. The neon-blue glow on Godzilla's dorsal plates begins at the tip of his tail and goes all the way to the top of his neck in this film and to let the audience know when he was going to fire it, an electric humming sound is heard. His eyes and numerous orifices around his scales also glow neon-blue moments before and when he unleashes the beam from his mouth, though this only occurs if he is in perfect condition and not hampered by M.U.T.O.s' EMP field. Godzilla only uses his atomic breath as a last resort against opponents he can't physically overpower on his own, as the atomic breath that he demonstrated during his battle against the Eight-Legged M.U.T.O. and Winged M.U.T.O., the atomic breath was not released at full strength. In the graphic novel Godzilla: Awakening and later, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Godzilla was shown breathing a more intense and beam-like atomic breath, which could be stronger and as destructive as the atomic breath when he is in better condition. Even so, he can only use it sparingly, as using the ability three times in a row would exhaust him. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, after being revived by Monarch, a fully-powered Godzilla fires his attack and shows that the atomic breath can knock or push back opponents such as Ghidorah several times heavier than him. In Godzilla vs. Kong, Godzilla's atomic breath is now changed to an atomic heat ray. Like his Heisei and Final Wars incarnations, this breath was used to damage major human settlements as well as Kong. A point-blank atomic ray, however, had never damaged Kong's battle axe. The atomic breath is also shown to be powerful enough to bore straight into the Earth's core.
    • Thermonuclear Pulses: As revealed in Godzilla: Aftershock, Godzilla can emit a shockwave of atomic energy from his body, specifically from his then-shattered dorsal plates at will as a short-range attack. It is strong enough to send a kaiju around MUTO Prime's size sailing and crippling it at the same time if deployed from point-blank range. Godzilla in his burning form is even more powerful as three successive blasts of a nuclear pulse were able to destroy Ghidorah completely, except for his middle head, which Godzilla later disintegrated with his atomic breath.

Abilities

  • Genius-level Intellect/Master Tactician/Leader: Godzilla is amazingly intelligent; as he displayed the ability to learn and strategize to solve problems at hand, throughout his fight against the M.U.T.O.s, he didn't just simply attack them head on, but he also studied their pattern and weaknesses. When he killed the male M.U.T.O. by impaling him against a nearby skyscraper with a swipe of his tail, Godzilla targeted vital part on said M.U.T.O. to ensure he will be unable to recover from his wounds. Upon discovering female M.U.T.O.'s susceptibility to his atomic breath and exhaustion from being overwhelmed at the same time, Godzilla blasted her mouth to incinerate her innards and save his energy reserves in process, effectively killing her from the inside out and decapitating her in process. In his fight against Ghidorah, he brought their fight underwater and would've won had the military not severely crippled him with the experimental Oxygen Destroyer and to everyone's horror, ensuring his said nemesis' escape (due to the latter's immunity) and brief dominance over other titans across the world. In addition of combat, Godzilla also displayed his problem-solving intelligence; to avoid unnecessary conflict with others. He intimidated the personnel of Monarch's Castle Bravo base not to attack him when they get into his way for investigating the ORCA signal from Antarctica and later, detecting humans from a nearby submarine (particularly Mark Russell) observing him and having something to do with the sudden nuclear explosion that revitalized his systems before heading off to confront Ghidorah in Boston. He also acknowledged by the other titans who submitted to him after Ghidorah's defeat, proving that Godzilla knows that the only way to win over them and put them in their place; was by defeating Ghidorah and reclaim his rightful place as there alpha. In Godzilla vs. Kong, Godzilla singles out Apex Cybernetics facilities to destroy while searching for Mechagodzilla, showcasing that he is capable of pinpointing exact groups of people that represent a threat to him. This is further demonstrated when the fleet escorting Kong opens fire on Godzilla to defend the primate Titan, causing Godzilla to attack it out of retaliation before battling Kong. However, he continues to avoid unnecessary conflict, as showcased when he ceases his assault once the fleet decides to "play dead" by shutting off their power, making Godzilla believe it is no longer a threat and leave the area. This is further demonstrated with his rematch with Kong in Hong Kong when Godzilla manages to overpower his rival but spares his life before leaving to continue searching for Mechagodzilla. During the following fight, he recognizes Kong as an ally and in turn assists him by tag-teaming Mechagodzilla and then powering Kong's axe with his atomic breath to deliver the killing blow against the mechanical Titan. After their battle, Godzilla acknowledges Kong and returns to the ocean without further conflict once again.
  • Alpha Call: As the alpha titan, Godzilla is able to let out a powerful call that can be heard by Titans all over the world and make them compliant to his commands. However, he lost this when his nemesis, Ghidorah bested him in the water; due to the fact that the military intervened. After killing Ghidorah once-and-for all, Godzilla regained his alpha call. As displayed by Ghidorah, this cry only works on lesser titans and does not work on other titans with their own alpha status; such as Godzilla himself, Mothra and Kong, who were unaffected by Ghidorah's cry.
  • Advanced Combatant: Godzilla can use his huge mass, claws, jaws and tail in combat against other kaiju such as the M.U.T.O.s, Ghidorah, Kong and Mechagodzilla. He can also toss the MUTOs around with ease and can effortlessly push the female MUTO backward with his muscular arms, similar to what a grizzly bear does with it's opponent(s). Godzilla's combat style is very similar to that of grizzly bears and Komodo dragons; which despite having powerful jaws and teeth, use their front legs and claws in combat.
  • Advanced Bite: Godzilla has a particularly strong and powerful bite, either because of his sharp teeth, jaw-muscles, unusual jaw-structure or some other reason. Exactly what he can bite depends on the jaw-strength, resilience of his teeth/bite-surface and his shape.
  • Quadrupedalism: Although he can stand upright in a bipedal manner, Godzilla, like all reptiles, can also run and walk on all four limbs in a quadrupedal manner, shown during his fight with Kong in Hong Kong.
  • Prehensile Tail: Like all reptiles, Godzilla possesses a long prehensile tail that can be used as a formidable weapon. For example, he was capable of using it to kill the Winged M.U.T.O. by slamming him into a building with enough force, although he knocked it over by accident. When he is underwater, Godzilla is also capable of undulating his tail similar to crocodiles. During his fight with Ghidorah in Boston, Godzilla used his tail to knock back his rival, hitting Ghidorah with enough force to stagger him. Godzilla is also able to wrap his tail around Kong before dragging him into the depths of the ocean. Godzilla's tail is even muscular enough that Kong could not escape while coiled in it and only got free when Godzilla was distracted by depth charges, allowing Kong to swim back to the surface while Godzilla's grip was released.
  • Dorsal Plates: Godzilla can use his dorsal plates for attacks, shown when he sliced through a battleship while swimming through it.
  • Sharp Teeth: Like all reptiles, Godzilla possesses powerful jaws lined with sharpened teeth that are capable of biting through most materials. For example, he was able to bite into the bodies of the M.U.T.O.s as well as bite and rip off Ghidorah's left head during his fight with the three-headed titan underwater.
  • Sharp Claws: Like all reptiles, Godzilla possesses razor-edged claws that are capable of slicing through most materials. For example, he was able to knock Kong over by slashing him with his claws during their first battle and was also able to tear into his flesh during their Hong Kong battle.

Weaknesses

  • Short Arms: Godzilla has relatively short but muscular arms, which allows an opponent to leap onto his head and attack since he can't reach over, and fight back. This was the case with the male M.U.T.O., in which he leaped onto Godzilla's head without being taken off. The male M.U.T.O. attacking Godzilla like this allowed the female M.U.T.O. to ram Godzilla into a series of buildings.
  • Gills: Godzilla's greatest weakness is possibly the gills on his neck. This was seen when the military shot at Godzilla's dorsal plates while he was rising out of the sea, but he didn't suffer any damage. When they fired at his gills, it caused Godzilla to panic and accidentally smash through the Golden Gate Bridge due to his ginormous size, since he was suffering from a lot of agony at the time before continuing to hunt the male M.U.T.O. This was also seen when Godzilla was being beaten down by the mated M.U.T.O. pair. At one point, he roared at the female M.U.T.O., but her mate attacked him, and after that, he suffered extreme agony when the female M.U.T.O. slashed through his gills with one of her claws.
  • Lackluster Size: While not inhibiting Godzilla in combat, his size can be exploited against his status as a hero, as he unintentionally causes destruction (such as creating a tsunami when he surfaces near Hawaii or when he charges right through the Golden Gate Bridge, cleaving it in half) as a byproduct. However, the destruction he inadvertently causes is of little concern to himself and is more of a danger to other smaller lifeforms; such as humans.
  • Oxygen Destroyer: Godzilla is highly susceptible to the Oxygen Destroyer. Despite this, he was able to survive the exposure from a single blast; albeit it severely crippled him in the process, forcing him to retreat to his lair to restore his health before his heart stopped beating which would kill him of cardiac arrest.
  • Stamina: Despite his great stamina, sufficiently formidable opponents such as M.U.T.O. couple he fought in 2014 can wear him down in combat.

Former weaknesses

  • Energy Overload: If Godzilla absorbs too much energy simultaneously; he will involuntarily explode like atom bomb. However, since absorbing Mothra's life-force energy; this is no longer a weakness for Godzilla.

Relationships

Kaiju

Mothra

Godzilla has a symbiotic relationship with Mothra, as she is loyal only to the giant amphibious reptilian; even after Ghidorah became the alpha titan. Mothra sacrifices her life to save Godzilla and Godzilla expressed sadness upon watching his friend die.

Ghidorah

Ghidorah was Godzilla's primary arch-nemesis as they fought over the course of history for the alpha titan title. He and Ghidorah were always enemies. Ghidorah fights Godzilla three times over the course of the movie and becomes the new alpha titan. However, Godzilla ends up killing Ghidorah for good and retaking his title as the alpha. Ghidorah comes back as Mechagodzilla and fights with Godzilla again.

Kong

despite Kong being a protector, Godzilla and kong where ancient rivals due to there ancestors battling in an ancient war. When Kong was sent to hollow earth to seek for something to defeat Godzilla before he does more harm (despite Godzilla was only destroying apex because he senses the presence of Ghidorah), they first fought on the ship near the ocean when Godzilla thought kong is teaming up with apex. after their first fight, Godzilla leaves when he thinks kong lost, but they fight again in Hong Kong. Kong gained the upper hand and beats Godzilla using an ancient axe with a dorsal fin of Godzilla’s ancestor as the blade, but Godzilla defeats Kong using his own animal instincts (by walking on all 4s like a crocodile). Godzilla roars at Kong to submit, but Kong lets out a roar of his own, showing he won’t submit to Godzilla, thus earning the king of the monsters’ respect. Godzilla continues his hunt for Ghidorah, but is too late to stop apex from awakening the fallen one who is many’s consciousness, which takes control of MechaGodzilla. after Godzilla was nearly killed by MechaGodzilla, Kong decided to save him when he realized that he and Godzilla have one thing in common: they both want to protect the humans and stop apex. after they team up Godzilla used his atomic breath on the ax and allowed kong to defeat MechaGodzilla/Ghidorah. after that, Kong drops his axe as a sign of peace, ending the feud between him and Godzilla once and for all. Godzilla roars at Kong in acknowledgment and returns to the sea, while Kong returns to the hollow earth.

Rodan

Rodan served Ghidorah as his right-hand man when he became the new alpha titan. While Rodan served Ghidorah in the final battle, Rodan and Godzilla never attacked or harmed each other during the fight. After Godzilla defeated Ghidorah, Rodan initially was going to fight Godzilla, but he glared at Rodan which forced him to bow down to Godzilla and acknowledge him as the rightful alpha titan. Rodan is forgiven by Godzilla and then becomes his new minion.

Mechagodzilla

???

Dagon

Dagon was Godzilla's predecessor and a member of his species.

Eight-Legged M.U.T.O.

???

Winged M.U.T.O.

???

M.U.T.O. Prime

???

Six-Legged M.U.T.O.

Godzilla and the Six-Legged M.U.T.O. seem to have a respectful relationship. Unlike the other two M.U.T.O.s, the Six-Legged M.U.T.O. does not attack Godzilla, but instead bows to him to show how she respects and acknowledge him as the rightful alpha titan.

Behemoth

???

Scylla

???

Methuselah

???

Amhuluk

???

Na Kika

???

Tiamat

???

Humanity

Ishiro Serizawa

Godzilla and Ishiro had no literal relationship, but the latter had studied the former for a long time and concluded him being the very force that can restore the balance of nature whenever it is disrupted. Ishiro also believes Godzilla being the key for humanity and titans being able to coexist thus gives his life to activate the nuclear bomb to fully revitalize the kaiju after getting crippled by the Oxygen Destroyer, a deadly weapon Ghidorah immune of. The two eventually comes face to face in which Ishiro bids the kaiju farewell before activating the bomb, killing him but allows Godzilla to fully recover at the risk of energy overload that fortunately negated in courtesy of Mothra.

Ford Brody

Godzilla noticed Ford Brody after the latter destroyed MUTOs' nest thus allowing him to turn the table of the fight against both kaijus and killed the male MUTO, indicating the human being responsible for their disorientation. The kaiju would unknowingly saved his life from the vengeful female MUTO later on.

Trivia

  • This is the second incarnation of Godzilla to be featured in an American-made film, after the TriStar Godzilla from the 1998 film.
  • Unlike most previous incarnations; this version of Godzilla is portrayed as a protagonist/anti-hero, instead of as an antagonist.
    • This is the most heroic incarnation of Godzilla so far.
  • This incarnation of Godzilla's recent design is based on the original 1954 design, the ShodaiGoji suit from the original 1954 film, as director Gareth Edwards wanted to create a Godzilla design that's very modern, but still respects and resembles the design from the original Toho films.
  • This incarnation of Godzilla's fighting style mostly resembles a bear and Komodo dragon's and only use his atomic breath sparingly, contrasting to other incarnations who use the breath attacks more often; however, this may change in future films.
  • This incarnation of Godzilla is one of the friendliest towards humans. Ironically, his copyright holder Toho Studios reverted Godzilla to his traditional unfriendly self in their 2010s domestic films for political and environmental purposes. His counterparts in Shin Godzilla and the anime trilogy are metaphors for both the damage done by the United States for meddling in foreign affairs and the homeland disasters that struck Japan in the 2010s decade including the Tōhoku earthquake and Fukushima nuclear disaster, thus making him incredibly malicious and detrimental to the human race's fate.
    • This incarnation of Godzilla also the one who has best dynamic with Mothra; unlike their previous incarnations who are prone to be at odds with one another as much as with humanity. Interestingly, Mothra's status as "Queen of the Monsters" suggested their relationship is more than just friends, resulting fans ship both kaijus (see relationships with Mothra section above for more information).
  • In spite of Godzilla's huge size, he is very skillful at hiding from humans. After defeating the MUTOs and returning to the ocean at the end of the first movie in 2014, humans frantically searched for him but didn't find him until 2019.
  • Godzilla's keloid scars are a reference to the victims of the Hiroshima bombings.
  • He is credited as himself in the sequel, despite T.J Storm is still credited for motion capture.
  • It is unknown why Godzilla and Kong would fight each other in Godzilla vs. Kong, given the fact that they are both heroic monsters; this would classify both of them as Good Vs. Good in the same vein with cases of Iron Man vs Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Batman vs Superman in the DC Extended Universe.
    • However, it is safe to assume that they believe each other are a threat, with Godzilla believing Kong is a threat to the balance of nature, well Kong believing Godzilla is a threat to Skull Island or that Kong refuses to accept Godzilla as his king and so he is challenging the giant lizard for the title of "King of the Titans". The ending credits imply this because Godzilla has been rivals with Kong's species since ancient times according to cave drawings. It is also speculated (and later confirmed) that they will possibly team up to face a bigger threat; possibly Mechagodzilla.
  • This is the first incarnation of Godzilla to possess gills, the other being the Godzilla from the Toho 2016 reboot, Shin Godzilla, except that the latter only had gills in his 2nd and 3rd forms, not the entire movie like the MonsterVerse Godzilla did. This allows Godzilla to sleep underwater, while Showa Godzilla slept on land.
