The American Godzilla Wiki


Godzilla ​(ゴジラGojira), also known by various other names, is an American movie monster that first appeared as the titular character of the 1998 American film Godzilla produced and directed by Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin. The design by Patrick Tatopoulos is that of a hunched bent-over marine reptile taking inspiration from iguanas and modern theropod anatomy.[23] The film's incarnation is a re-imagining of the popular Godzilla character by Toho Co. Ltd. introduced in the 1954 film Godzilla, which had been traditionally portrayed by a man in a latex rubber suit portraying an outdated theropod anatomy, and rather than being an ancient resuscitated dinosaur instead depicts a contemporary unidentified lizard species (designed with characteristics common to iguanas) exposed to and mutated by nuclear radiation.

When Godzilla: Final Wars was released in 2004 and introduced a new variant of the 1998 Godzilla called Zilla (an evident derogatory parody of the monster), many people misinterpreted this move as a retcon of its Godzilla trademark and bridging the 1998 and 2004 films, whereas in actuality Godzilla (1998) and Zilla (2004) are officially and legally two different characters from two separate films set in their own respective fictional universes. Since the release of the 2004 film, the name Zilla has often mistakenly been used synonymously or retroactively with previous iterations of Godzilla (1998).

Film appearances

Godzilla (1998)

Originally a lizard egg irradiated by French nuclear tests in French Polynesia, makes its presence known years later when it attacks three fishing boats in the Pacific Ocean. The monster then crosses Jamaica and Panama before it heads to New York City, dragging three trawlers under the sea on the way, then lumbering across the Fulton Fish Market, before rampaging through the city. Manhattan is evacuated and the US military attempt to kill the monster, first luring it out with a huge pile of fish. It takes the bait, but then is scared off by small arms fire, and is chased by three AH-64 Apache attack helicopters. They fire, only to knock the top two dozen stories off the Chrysler Building. The monster escapes, but not before it is realized that it reproduces asexually, and is collecting food not only for itself, but also for its offspring.

The military lures Godzilla out again, into the waters of the Hudson River and seemingly kill it with a torpedo. Meanwhile, hundreds of eggs are discovered in Madison Square Garden. The Baby Godzillas begin to look for food, but are incinerated when the building is bombarded. The adult Godzilla emerges from the wreckage and discovers that all of its offspring are dead. Heartbroken and furious he is lured to the Brooklyn Bridge where it becomes entangled in the steel suspension cables, and is an easy target for the jet fighters. After it is hit by twelve missiles, it screams in pain, stares into the eyes of its killer Niko "Nick" Tatopolous and falls to the ground, its heart beating slowly until it breathes its last breath and officially marks the extinction of its species.

All seems well until we see in the smoking ruins of Madison Square Garden, a single egg has miraculously survived. It hatches and reveals another Baby Godzilla. A new Godzilla destined to eventually take over the throne as the new king of the monsters after his now deceased father.

Cancelled film appearances

Godzilla 2 (cancelled)

 Main article: Godzilla 2

A sequel was being produced shortly after the release of the 1998 film and would have been centered on the surviving Godzilla egg from the last film, with a script treatment already being written by Tab Murphy in 1999, but the sequel was cancelled when the project entered development hell and the rights from Toho expired in May, 2003.[24][25][26]

Godzilla 3 (cancelled)

 Main article: Godzilla 3

A third film was planned but eventually cancelled in May, 2003, as the rights to produce the film expired. It is unconfirmed what the plot would have been or which monsters would have appeared in the film. Screenrant suggests that "it's also been said that Sony wanted to use multiple monsters in the trilogy, and the initial deal for TriStar to use kaiju from Godzilla's first 15 movies suggests that they may have had an interest in using established Toho monsters."[27]

Biology

Origin and evolution

Godzilla was born as the single representative of its novel species following French nuclear tests in the Moruro Atoll Islands in French Polynesia during June of 1968. After being exposed to considerable amounts of radiation, an unidentified local lizard species was subjected to considerable mutation and exponentially grew in size. The emergence of Godzilla may have inspired the creation of legends regarding a giant sea monster inhabiting the Pacific Ocean, dubbed "Gojira", resulting in it eventually being identified by the same name following a 1998 incident where a large Japanese fishing vessel was attacked by a mysterious creature and leaving only one survivor.

Description

For the 1998 film, the attempt was made to interpret Godzilla more realistically than had ever been done before, to see him more as an animal than depicted in earlier films. Built like a theropod dinosaur with his body held horizontally on long legs and long powerful arms with four fingers (occasionally portrayed with five fingers) with sharp dark claws. Godzilla has a distinctive rectangular box-shaped head with a thick protruding lower jaw, a "proud chin", attached to a large neck with a lower dewlap and upper dermal spikes increasing in size towards the body and decresing again leading down across its back and tail.

The characteristic maple leaf dorsal fins, of the traditional Godzilla design, are instead rows of large curved dorsal spikes. Those fins begin at the back of the head and continue down the length of the body and whip-like tail, growing larger on the back. The two largest fins on the shoulders. The characteristic blue, gray, and black color scheme of the creature, with portions of brown, was also meant to be used as a camoflauge, like a chameleon, that would help it blend in with the city environment, while the offspring sport a dominantly brown coloration. The eyes of the creature are distinctly colored yellow and orange with a white pupil.

Breath

Originally, Godzilla was not to have any sort of breath weapon in the 1998 film, although the idea was being considered in conceptual artworks. In knowledge of this, a petition by upset fans motivated Emmerich and Devlin to include one in their screenplay. Since Godzilla is such a large animal, whenever he roars, a blast of powerful ignitable wind blasts out of his mouth. In the script and the DVD audio commentary, this breath weapon was dubbed "power breath".

Godzilla is shown using this ability twice in the film and occasionally in promotional material. The first time, he uses the power breath near two burning vehicles which ignites the breath and consumes two pursuing military vehicles. The second time, he roars near two vehicles that crash into each other and causing a massive explosion. In the cancelled sequel, the last surviving Godzilla would have been featured using a self-ignited power breath capable of shooting through water. In the animated series, the same last remaining Godzilla as well as the resurrected first Godzilla was shown using the same self-ignited power breath in defense against other monsters, the former with a green colored breath and the latter with a blue colored breath. In the video game Godzilla Online, the Baby Godzillas were capable of spitting a highly corrosive steam dubbed "baby breath". In the 2004 film Godzilla: Final Wars, Zilla is shown using a type of ignited breath weapon whilst attacking Sydney, but the writers for the IDW comic book Godzilla: Rulers of Earth decided that their version of Zilla should not have a breath weapon.

Sound

Godzilla has a very distinct roar altered from the original roar produced for the traditional Godzilla.

Temper

Godzilla is commonly displayed in a relatively calm state while walking around, observing his surroundings, and searching for food or a nesting site. When hunting, the creatures displays very vicious behavior. When threatened, the creature initially escapes the scene and runs straight through the military forces while fleeing, before turning to a more aggressive and offensive attitude when experiencing being cornered, often stalking or chasing his previous pursuers. The hatchlings showed a similar calm and curious predisposition before turning to active and aggressive hunting while looking for food. After his offspring was killed off, Godzilla appeared to enter a state of rage, constantly chasing after the killers of his offspring until he became entrapped in the suspension cables on Brooklyn Bridge before being bombarded by fighter jets and slowly became more calm and eventually died.

Most of the damage caused by Godzilla is purely unintentional, as opposed to the traditional Godzilla which appears to intentionally destroy everything in its path and aggressively pursue and fight anything until he has killed or destroyed it. This is a big part of why the original Godzilla is seen as a metaphor for nuclear power, whereas the 1998 Godzilla behaves more like a real animal and is supposed to portray a global threat in a more realistic sense, not only through its durability or temper but primarily its extraordinary excellence in avoiding capture and quickly reproducing and causing havoc across the planet.

Temperature

Godzilla appears to have a very cold body temperature, enough so that heat-seeker missiles from attack helicopters can't lock on to him as a target.

Durability

Godzilla lacks the traditional Godzilla's formidable regenerative abilities and near-impenetrable otherworldly hide, as proven by his death in the original film, although still appearing largely unaffected by military weaponry. Instead he's faster, more agile, considerably more intelligent, being capable of running at 480 kilometers per hour (300 mph), outrunning several helicopters in one instance.

Mourning

Godzilla appears capable of mourning the death of his offspring, which resulted in an outburst of anger towards those he perceived as responsible.

Intelligence

Godzilla appears to have a high degree of intelligence. During the military's first attempt to lure out the creature to be killed, the creature outruns Apache helicopters and tricks them to believe they've killed him while the creature sneaks up behind them to take them all out. At another point, the military searches a blocked off tunnel for traces of the creature before deciding to turn back, after which the creature itself appears to have been the one blocking off the tunnel, staring at the soldiers as they leave.

Later, when the military tried to lure out the creature for a second time, the creature did not fall for it but escaped the scene. The military subsequently tried to pursue it, but it dived into the Hudson River, where it found itself dodging submarine missiles and lead them to hit the submarine itself. After his offspring had been killed by a missile strike on Madison Square Garden, he mourns his dead offspring and notices the small group of humans responsible for the missile strike. Motivated by anger, the creature persistently pursues the group across the city, constantly attempting to outsmart them and prevent them from escaping his wrath.

Swimming

Godzilla is portrayed as an excellent, agile, and fast swimmer capable of outmaneuvering underwater missiles.

Digging

Godzilla appears to be an excellent digger of great strength, capable of rapidly tearing through concrete buildings and digging large tunnels through bedrock.

Diet

Godzilla is portrayed with a piscivorous diet, while his offspring are depicted hunting and feeding on humans due to them smelling like fish. In the animated series, Godzilla (GTS) is portrayed hunting, fighting, and killing various monsters while never feeding on their remains. In the 2004 film Godzilla: Final Wars, Zilla is implied to have eaten two humans and bites into a truck during its initial assault on Sydney, while later being seen threatening and attacking Godzilla.

Reproduction

Like other reptiles, Godzilla has a cloaca, which is a single opening for urination, defacation, and laying eggs. Godzilla reproduces asexually, a trait which is not uncommon in some reptiles, like Komodo Dragons for example. In the 1998 film, Dr. Niko "Nick" Tatopolous states that all the Godzillas were "born pregnant". Upon expecting its first known batch of offspring, the creature migrated across the Pacific Ocean, passing through Jamaica and Panama, before eventually surfacing in New York City and nesting in Madison Square Garden, laying 228 eggs, with each hatchling being born pregnant.[28] However, the last remaining Baby Godzilla (Godzilla (GTS)), which appeared briefly at the end of the 1998 film, was depicted in the animated series to be sterile (possibly due to a birth defect) and rather than nesting did find shelter within a cave hidden below the Hudson River.

This was however not the case with the planned but cancelled film sequel, where the last Godzilla gave birth to its own brood of Teen Godzillas and one notable individual dubbed "The Runt". In one episode of the animated series he falls in love with a mutant Komodo Dragon, named Komodithrax, which has the apparent ability to fertilize her own eggs, thus laying a giant egg all by herself. Godzilla and Komodithrax begin to form a family bond, with Godzilla serving as the Komodithrax egg's surrogate father. Unfortunately, both Komodithrax and the egg appears to have fallen to their death in the same episode at the hands of a giant turtle pursuing and attacking them, which was subsequently killed by Godzilla.

Conservation and extinction

Original timeline

Upon its discovery, Godzilla represented the only known representative of its presumed novel species before its nest of 228 eggs were discovered in the ruins of Madison Square Garden. Shortly afterwards, the offspring were obliterated in a missile strike while the adult Godzilla was eliminated in a second strike after being trapped in the suspension cables on the Brooklyn Bridge. Subsequently, the species was considered extinct, before one remaining hatchling was discovered in the ruins of Madison Square Garden.

In the cancelled sequel, Dr. Niko Tatopoulos experiences remorse over causing the extinction of this species and returns to the ruins of Madison Square Garden in the hopes of finding a surviving specimen, and he ends up rescuing this last member of the species by leading it into the Hudson River while the military searches the area. Two years later, this second Godzilla is discovered in Australia with a new brood of Teen Godzillas, but Philippe Roache betrayed the confidence of Dr. Tatopoulos and secretly revealed their location to the United States military, leading to their quick extermination under the order of Corporal Hicks. Once again, a sole juvenile remained and ended up reuniting with the adult before disappearing into the ocean, following Godzilla having battled and defeated another giant monster causing havoc across the globe, motivating Corporal Hicks and his forces to stand down.

Alternative timeline

In the animated series, the first Godzilla is dispatched and Dr. Tatopoulos warns Corporal Hicks that there may be surviving specimens, leading to him searching Madison Square Garden and once again leading the last surviving hatchling to retreat into the Hudson River. Godzilla then resurfaces and joins the H.E.A.T. team organized by Dr. Tatopoulos for dispatching other monsters across the world, and they learn that this Godzilla is actually sterile but later seduces a mutated Komodo Dragon, dubbed Komodithrax, and becomes the adoptive father to a single egg which Komodithrax had apparently self-fertilized. However, both Komodithrax and her egg appears to fall to their death after being attacked by a giant turtle. In an alternate timeline, Godzilla is eliminated by bioengineered giant monsters dubbed the D.R.A.G.M.A.s in 2022 or 18 AD ("after D.R.A.G.M.A."). The first Godzilla is resurrected as a cyborg during the global "Monster Wars" event under the control of the Tachyon extraterrestrial race, before being dispatched once more by the second Godzilla.

Multiverse

In the 2004 film Godzilla: Final Wars, Zilla appears without a known origin and is captured along with other monsters by the Xilien extraterrestrial race (the suspected creators who bioengineered the beast) and was used as a force of destruction before being quickly dispatched following an encounter with Godzilla. In the IDW comic book Godzilla: Rulers of Earth, Zilla (IDW) appears to have existed since ancient times without a known origin and is shown aggressively battling other monsters and remain the only known representative of its species. In the separate IDW comic book Godzilla: Oblivion, Zilla is shown entering the world through a portal to another dimension and reproducing. In the 2015 video game Godzilla: Kaiju Collection, the Xilien extraterrestrial race invaded planet Earth and used Zilla, of unknown origin, and other monsters to take over the world before the G-Force commander claimed control over Zilla and the other monsters as a defense against the Xiliens, with Zilla's fate remaining unknown. In the novel Godzilla: Monster Apocalypse, Zilla (POTM) appears from nowhere and invades France and rapidly reproduces before overrunning Europe. G-Force noted the extraordinary breeding capability of the Zillas and unsuccessfully attempted to exterminate them. These efforts were abandoned and the fate of the Zillas remain uncertain.

Cyber-Godzilla

In the animated series, an extraterrestrial race called the Tachyons find the original Godzilla's body and resurrect him as the cyborg dubbed Cyber-Godzilla. This version of Godzilla possesses numerous new weapons, such as a sonic emitter, eight dorsal fin missile launchers, and an atomic flame blast like his son but with a blue color instead of green. Metal parts replaced most of Cyber-Godzilla's body including a cybernetic right arm and a strange metal helmet for the cyborg's head. Cyber-Godzilla's roar was also changed to a more metallic sound, and his skin has changed from gray-brown to purple-pink, while his dorsal plates changed from blue to gray. The color change is most likely indicating decay, since he became a cyborg a few years after he had originally died at Brooklyn Bridge.

The making of Godzilla

During the making of Godzilla, a lot of secrecy was involved over at Sony Pictures. After the 1994-96 Godzilla film had been cancelled the project was taken over by the creators of the box office hit Independence DayRoland Emmerich, the director and co-writer of Godzilla, and producer and co-writer Dean Devlin took on the task and they started with contacting Patrick Tatopoulos, the creator and designer of the design for Godzilla's first American film debut, and wanted him to design a completely new Godzilla. They wanted this new lizard to be more realistic, faster, deadlier, scarier, cooler, and more akin to a modern dinosaur than the traditional Godzilla was. They also wanted to give the new creature a more plausible origin story.

Trademark

On May 17, 1994, the trademark logo mark "GODZILLA" was filed. On April 11, 1995, it was published for opposition and later registered on August 25, 1998. The trademark logo mark was renewed on November 19, 2008.[29] On January 1, 1998, the trademark word mark "GODZILLA" was filed and published for opposition on July 28, 1998. The word mark was registered on March 23, 1999, and cancelled on December 31, 2005.[30] The logo mark for "GODZILLA" was filed on June 17, 1998, and published for opposition on July 27, 1999. The logo mark was abandoned on April 20, 2002.[31]

Legacy

Audience reception and cultural impact

After Godzilla made its first ever movie appearance, the first reactions were generally poor, and on May 18, 1998, Richard Pusateri coined the fan-nickname G.I.N.O. (acronym for Godzilla In Name Only)[32] for the new monster because that was how he would describe the creature, and some portions of the hardcore fanbase felt that this new American Godzilla was not what Godzilla was meant to be, and this part of the fanbase displayed a persistent distaste for the new version of Godzilla, stating it lacked many of the traits Godzilla is known for, such as atomic laser breath, extreme regeneration, near-invincibility, impenetrable hide, and general aggression. Dissatisfied fans also gave the creature names like Deanzilla (after the 1998 film's producer Dean Devlin) and Fraudzilla (after fans who considered the beast a "false" Godzilla).

The fact that Godzilla was also portrayed as an asexual male caused some misinterpretations among the audience who often referred to him as a "she", despite that Godzilla was evidently supposed to be a male and producer Dean Devlin even corrected fans on this point.

Godzilla made several appearances in Trendmasters toy products and other merchandise during 1998. Cyber-Godzilla and other characters from Godzilla: The Series were supposed to have been released as toys by Trendmasters during 1998-2000, but because of the bad sales of the toys that were sold during the movie, the production of the toys and merchandise was stopped.

Godzilla also made several commercials through the years[33], in a Kodak Max commercial a man in a diner sees Godzilla and gets a Kodak Max camera and takes several photos until Godzilla roars at him and the man says "Never mind, I think I got it!".[34] He made several commercials for Taco Bell, crossing paths with the Taco Bell chihuahua.[35]

In several music videos making up a single narrative, Godzilla tangles with Sean Combs and other musicians, ultimately defeating Green Day by teaming with Jakob Dylan to retrieve the Sacred Turbo Heart.

Godzilla was also featured in an MTV spoof of the iconic TAXI chase scene where Samuel L. Jackson is the passenger and Christopher Lloyd is the driver.[36]

In the Robot Chicken episode That Hurts Me, the segment Godzilla Remade Again featured Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich remaking Godzilla once more; the segment goes on to show a scene of baby Zillas attacking, only to begin inexplicably roller skating and dancing in a rink. When the studio head bemoans the fact that he trusted Devlin and Emmerich to make a decent Godzilla film, for the second time, and that they instead have produced an unmarketable "pile of shit", for the second time, Devlin and Emmerich give each other a high-five.

He also made an appearance in Armageddon alongside other Godzilla toys during the opening sequence in New York, when a little dog attacked the Godzilla toys on sale. This was a friendly jab at the other big special effects movie of that summer, which was released a month and a half earlier.

Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack briefly references the 1998 film as a comedic or derogatory bit of fan-service. The film opens with a meeting of the Japan Self-Defense Forces, held to discuss the American Godzilla's attack on New York City. During the meeting, a pair of officers discuss the events and one asks if the monster that attacked New York was actually the Japanese Godzilla (Japanese Gojira). The other guard slyly replies that although the American experts believe so, the Japanese do not. This is an evident reference to the 1998 film, even though the two films are unrelated to each other, where the 1998 film is just a remake of the 1954 original and has nothing to do with any of the sequels before and after 1998. As the films are unrelated, it could be possible to suggest they are talking about another monster.

In 2004, when Godzilla: Final Wars was released, Toho introduced a new creature dubbed Zilla (a legally separate variant of the 1998 Godzilla) into Toho's own series of Godzilla films which was evidently intended as a derogatory parody of the 1998 Godzilla. The creation and appearance of this creature for the 2004 film caused the popular "Godzilla was renamed Zilla" myth among fans which mistakenly suggests that all variants of the 1998 Godzilla and its associated products had been renamed from "Godzilla" to "Zilla", when in reality the 1998 Godzilla is permanently trademarked as a variant of Godzilla, the 1998 film and associated products retain the Godzilla trademark, and Zilla is a legally separate character from the 1998 Godzilla while at the same time acting as a variant of the 1998 Godzilla using the same basic design, akin to Kiryu being a variant of Mechagodzilla for example. In the 2004 film, Zilla fights Godzilla in one of the shortest battles in Godzilla's film history, lasting about 13 seconds. However, this was not extraordinarily unique to this fight as many of the monsters that formally gave Godzilla a challenge were similarly dispatched.

The Godzilla character was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame on November 29, 2004, because of all his film appearances, including the 1998 film appearance. The location is 6925 Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles, California (USA).[37]

Godzilla made an appearance in a 2006 Doritos commercial, in which he picks up a truck of Doritos and shakes chips into his mouth. In another Doritos commercial, he devours a spicy variant of Doritos, roars in pain, and dives into the Hudson River. Both parody the fish bait scene in the 1998 movie.

Godzilla appeared fighting King Kong from the 2005 film in the streets of New York City during the opening to the 2007 special The 80th Annual Academy Awards honoring various popular films produced by Hollywood.

Godzilla's roar is uttered by a garden snake in the very beginning of the Camp Lazlo episode Snake Eyes.

Godzilla's roar is also audible in the trailer for Spider-Man 3, when Sandman dives down from the sand truck.

In a Phineas & Ferb episode a T-Rex is shown being over 100 ft tall and using Godzilla's trademark roar.

In Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Fin Fang Foom had Godzilla's distinctive roar during the fight with Tony Stark and Gene Khan.

In Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, Sean Anderson (played by Josh Hutcherson) screams "Godzilla!" at a massive frill-necked lizard guarding its eggs.
