The Runt, also known as American Godzilla among other names, is a movie monster that was supposed to have appeared in the now cancelled Godzilla 2 (film). The design by Patrick Tatopoulos is that of a hunched bent-over marine iguana. When Godzilla: Final Wars (2004) was released and introduced a new American Godzilla called Zilla, many people misinterpreted this as a canonization of the American Godzilla, whereas The Runt (1999-2003) and Zilla (2004) are officially two different characters.
