Video game appearancesEdit

Godzilla: The Series - Monster Wars (1998)Edit

Cyber-Godzilla has appeared in one video game called Godzilla: The Series - Monster Wars.


Cyber-Godzilla was designed by Fil Barlow (who created most concept art for the TV-show) and it was based upon the American Godzilla design by Patrick Tatopoulos.


Godzilla: The Series - Cyber-GodzillaEdit

Trendmasters planned a toy version of Cyber-Godzilla and created some prototypes, but the project was cancelled due to the bad sales of collectibles from the 1998 film.


After his first appearance, Cyber-Godzilla became a favourite among fans. Also, after the creature Zilla appeared in the 2004 film Godzilla: Final Wars, and caused the name change myth (created by fans who misinterpreted the appearance of the new character), the Cyber-Godzilla character was nicknamed "Cyber-Zilla" by fans.


  • Cyber-Godzilla is similar to Toho's movie monsters MechaGodzilla and Mecha-King Ghidorah because of it being a cyborg.
  • Cyber-Godzilla may have been the inspiration for Kiryu, which has a similar origin (Kiryu was made out of the remains of the first Japanese Godzilla and Cyber-Godzilla was made out of the remains of the first American Godzilla).
  • Cyber-Godzilla is armed with an atomic heat ray which is blue in color, which is similar to the Japanese Godzilla's blue atomic ray, as opposed to his son, whose atomic fire is green.
