He's a product of civilization. Men are the only real monsters. Godzilla's more like a nuclear weapon. … A living nuclear weapon destined to walk the Earth forever. Indestructible. A victim of the modern nuclear age.
~ Dr Hayashida (The Return of Godzilla)

Godzilla, aka the King of Monsters, is a character of the eponymous Godzilla franchise. He previously fought Gamera in the 35th episode of Death Battle, Godzilla VS Gamera.

Possible Opponents


Since the time of the Dinosaurs, a giant prehistoric creature layed dormant at the bottom of the ocean until in 1954, Americans tested their hydrogen bombs in the Pacific Ocean, awaking it, as well as mutating it in the process, this creature would be known as Godzilla aka Gojira by Japanese people.

Ever since, Godzilla has made Japan his home, leaving wakes of destruction, wherever he goes destroying cities and armies that tries to stop him. Strangely, he also seems to protect the planet, whenever it is in danger, ranging from many other giant kaiju like him, whom he had made enemies with throughout the years to even extraterrestrial threats.

    • Longest lasting version of Godzilla
    • Retired to Monster Island in the late 1990s
  • Heisei
    • A Godzillasaurus that risked its life to save Japanese soldiers during WWII
    • Contrary to popular belief; the Heisei Godzilla did not get deleted from history only for a different Godzilla to take his place. While there is a size difference between the 80s and 90s depictions, which led to a new Godzilla suit, the increase of size was due to the same Godzilla absorbing radiation from a nuclear sub. [1]

    • Died as Burning Godzilla; melting down from its own radiation (Godzilla Jr. became his successor).
  • Godzilla 2000

    • Nuclear Pulse.
      • If Godzilla's mouth is closed before he fires the Atomic Beam; the beam instead detonates within Godzilla himself. It creates a shockwave that strikes anyone near Godzilla. Godzilla himself is not seriously harmed by this explosive force as his body is designed to create this atomic energy.
    • Magnetic attraction, Energy conduction and Radiation Absorption.

Weaknesses and Failures

  • Godzilla is not invincible; both his durability and healing factor has limits.
    • Burning Godzilla died from a radioactive meltdown; meaning enough radiation or heat can kill Godzilla.

    • If his second brain is destroyed than Godzilla will be paralyzed and immobile.
    • Can be immobilized by certain artificial diseases, heavy blizzards or freezing attacks, UFO tractor beams or Mothra's silk.
    • Hedorah's poison easily burned through Godzilla's hand and eye and Hedorah's smog almost suffocated Godzilla.
    • Massive missiles can still damage Godzilla (Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, Godzilla Tokyo S.O.S, and Godzilla 2000).
    • Vulnerable to strong surges of artificial electricity.
    • Gills and armpits are weak spots.
  • Relatively slow; even compared to other kaiju.
  • Sometimes susceptible to mind control.
  • Has been knock-out by Jet Jaguar (with one punch).
  • Godzilla's mutated DNA has spawned some of his deadliest enemies (Biollante, Space Godzilla, Destroyah's Perfect Form, Orga).
