Ah, Franchise/{{Godzilla}}. One of the most easily recognized monsters in fiction. A giant reptilian monster that rampages across UsefulNotes/{{Tokyo}}. Because of his recognizeability, writers/directors/producers/etc. will often use a parody of him for spoofs of giant monster attacks.

Enter the Notzilla. The Notzilla is a StockParody of Godzilla used in movies, cartoons, TV shows, and other forms of media. While the Notzilla may bear a [[{{Expy}} resemblence to]] [[LawyerFriendlyCameo the famous Japanese movie monster]], he may also be just a generic reptilian monster with "-zilla" at the end of his name. The Notzilla may also parody other aspects of Japanese monster movies such as bad dubbing and [[SpecialEffectsFailure cheesy special effects.]]

Compare RentAZilla, which simply involves some sort of giant creature (not always a Godzilla parody) present in a work not normally focused on giant monsters.


[[folder: Advertising]]
* An old Tootsie Pop commercial had a kid asking a giant robot and a Godzilla parody the old question, "How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop?"
* Chewits is the brand name of a cuboid-shaped, soft chewy sweet, manufactured in Britain since the 1960s. The original advertisements featured the 'Monster Muncher' (now known as 'Chewie the Chewitsaurus'), a Godzilla-resembling mascot on the hunt for something chewy to eat.

[[folder: Anime & Manga]]
* ''Anime/SonicX'' has Weasel using a flamethrower on a Godzilla lookalike.
* One episode of ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' had the heroes on tour of a studio that featured a spoof of Godzilla and Gamera called "Gomera".
* A couple of episodes of ''TheAdventuresOfTheMiniGoddesses'' involve a rat transforming into a Godzilla parody.
* The ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' Tyrannomon (and according to WordOfGod, Guilmon-line) is supposed to be a parody/homage to Godzilla.

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* Creator/MarvelComics have one to a certain extent.
** At one time, they owned the comicbook rights to Godzilla and ran a successful comic series ''Comicbook/GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters'' in which he fought Comicbook/TheAvengers and ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}, making it canon. Since that time, they have lost the rights so whenever there have been flashbacks or references to these events, Godzilla's name is absent. The villain known as Dr. Demonicus had used a horned kaiju that was hinted at being a mutated Godzilla. More recently, in an issue of ''ComicBook/MightyAvengers'', the ComicBook/FantasticFour villain Mole Man used a swarm of giant monsters to attack New York, one of which, looked suspiciously like Godzilla.
** In addition to that, many characters and items that first appeared in the Marvel series have returned multiple times since they are still owned by Marvel. For instance, Amadeus Cho has been shown piloting ''The Behemoth'', a ship that was created to destroy Godzilla. The Red Ronin, a [[HumongousMecha giant samurai robot]] (similar to [[ComicBook/XMen the Sentinels]] except [[UpToEleven over 10 times taller]]) built for the same purposes, also shows up every now and then. Then there is Yuriko Takiguchi, a Godzilla supporting character, who has resurfaced in an issue of Comicbook/XMen.
** The most recent "Notzilla" is the "American Kaiju". He's a Godzilla-like monster with the Stars & Stripes on his stomach and head, brewed from a mix of Marvel Comic [[SuperSerum super serums]] and [[AppliedPhlebotinum applied phlebotinums]]. The kicker? The man the mixture was used on was named [[PunnyName Todd Ziller]].
* Played with in one ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo'' story, when two recuring peasant characters find a large egg and try to warm it up for a meal. It ends up hatching to reveal a friendly child-sized Notzilla, at which point the peasants flee. Usagi (who intends to bathe in nearby hot springs) encounters the creature and feeds it. A little later some bandits who wish to rob Usagi show up and catch Usagi without his swords. At this point the creature uses his atomic breath to blast the bandits. After naming the creature "Zilla" (after the sound it makes), Usagi bids it farewell and notes that he is heading to the city and maybe the creature might head there itself after it grows up...
-->'''Usagi:''' [[LampshadeHanging "Are you a god, Zilla?"]]
* Played with when one year of ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'s'' annual New Year's "Metropolis Mailbag" letter-answering/wish-granting traditions was constantly interrupted by a clash between a Japanese kid in a SuperRobot (a new Toyman) and a giant Metallo. One that was constantly interrupted by various Kaiju coming out of nowhere. The "Godzilla" in this case was a literal giant Gorilla-whale.
* The titular prison in ''ComicBook/{{Kaijumax}}'' is for giant monsters, so it's got [[{{Expy}} expies]] of lots of monsters, including the Big Guy himself. Our protagonist Electrogor has something of Godzilla's body shape, and is the "hero" of this story. Local don Ape-Whale's name is a pun: Godzilla/gojira comes from kojira, "whale," and "gorilla."
* ''ComicBook/TopTen'': Ernesto Gograh, an over-the-hill city smasher with a skyscraper sized beer belly who can't return to Monster Island because he's skipped child support payments. He also mentions that "A Gojira" is a Kaiju insult for a CategoryTraitor who sucks up to humans for approval.
* El Lagarto Hombre from ''ComicBook/TheGoon'' is a mutant horned toad who speaks entirely in GratuitousSpanish. Naturally, Goon defeats him by being turned into a giant gorilla-like creature to fight by [[MadScientist Dr. Alloy]]. Alloy later resurrects El Lagarto Hombre as a human-sized servant, but he escapes and becomes a giant monster again.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'': A story from the comics is set in Japan and has a Godzilla-like monster named Gigantasaurus a.k.a. [[spoiler:Leon]].

[[folder: Fan Works]]
* ''FanFic/RealityChecksNyxverse'': In ''Nyx's Family'', [[spoiler: Garble and his gang of teenage dragons ingest dozens of fire opals to [[MakeMyMonsterGrow grow to a massive size]] and raid the Crystal Empire after a series of miscommunications by the media, eventually inciting Spike to [[EleventhHourSuperpower grow to his giant monster form]] to [[BehemothBattle fight back]]. He eventually sends them packing, but not without additional help from Bright Eyes, ala ''Film/PacificRim'', and a nick-of-time magic boost from the long-lost second Crystal Heart]].
* ''FanFic/RiseOfTheGaleforces'': [[spoiler: An OutOfCharacter [[Film/TheIncredibles Violet Parr]], her family, a host of OCs, [[MegaCrossover and several hundred other things]] replace Ian Malcolm and company in a re-hash of the climax of ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark'' listed below. What leads to this trope is the fact that Violet [[ScaledUp gets turned into]] a mutated and [[GodModeSue utterly invincible]] TyrannosaurusRex, resulting in a Godzilla-style rampage that single-handedly wipes out the antagonistic forces and eventually the BigBad himself.]]

[[folder: Films -- Animated]]
* One of Mike and Sulley's friends in ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' is Ted, who is so big only his green, scaly feet are visible. (They clearly resemble the foot in ''WesternAnimation/BambiMeetsGodzilla''.) Originally they planned to use Godzilla's roar, but they couldn't secure the rights so they used a chicken cluck instead.
* A DeletedScene in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'' has Rex attacking buildings and soldiers a la' Godzilla.
* Shelley the turtle in ''WesternAnimation/{{Frankenweenie}}'' is turned into a giant monster that looks like a cross between Godzilla and Franchise/{{Gamera}}.

[[folder: Films -- Live-Action]]
* Understandably, many fans and critics alike feel this way about [[Film/{{Godzilla 1998}} Tri-Star's 1998 "remake"]]. ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' even includes that version as a separate monster that Godzilla himself kills rather quickly.
** Toho even went through a lengthy legal process to dissociate that movie's monster from their Godzilla, a part of which was officially renaming it "Zilla"; as they put it, the people responsible for the movie [[TakeThat "took the 'God' out of 'Godzilla'."]]
** And let's not skip over the fact that this was also brought up in ''Film/GodzillaMothraKingGhidorahGiantMonstersAllOutAttack''. When the Godzilla that terrorized Japan back in 1954 [[OurZombiesAreDifferent is resurrected]], the Japanese military briefly ponders if ''this'' Godzilla is not the original one, since the Americans reported a sighting back in 1998. They agree that the Americans saw something else. It may not be CanonDiscontinuity, in fact just the opposite, [[TakeThat but it might as well have been]].
* ''Film/AustinPowersInGoldmember'' lampshades this with two Japanese men running from a monster statue that vaguely resembles Godzilla.
-->"It looks like Godzilla, but due to copyright laws, it's not!"
* ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark'' combines this trope with EscapedAnimalRampage in the third act, in the form of [[spoiler: the bull ''TyrannosaurusRex'' running loose in San Diego in search of his lost infant]] -- which is in fact a ShoutOut to a similar sequence in the climax of ''Film/TheLostWorld'' (which was released in 1925, [[OlderThanTheyThink nearly thirty years ahead of Godzilla's own debut]]) involving an escaped ''Brontosaurus''. The JP film drives this trope home by briefly featuring some panicking Japanese civilians screaming what roughly translates to, "We left Japan to get away from this!"
* The beginning DreamSequence of ''WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHeadDoAmerica'' has the titular duo rampaging through the city as giant versions of themselves. Though, this is mostly Butt-Head's dream and Beavis interrupts when he starts shaking him in the waking world.

[[folder: Literature]]
* The children's book "Dogzilla" parodies this with relish, featuring a giant dog terrorizing a MouseWorld by doing dog things such as chewing up bones (from the natural history museum) and chasing cars (right off the highway), until the mice ward her off with [[HatesBaths lots and lots of soapsuds]]. Unfortunately, they hadn't figured on [[spoiler: puppies]]!
** From the same author, we have "Kat Kong", a Film/KingKong parody complete with [[KingKongClimb the titular monster climbing a building, then falling to its doom]].

[[folder: Live Action TV]]
* A special episode of ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' had Crow making a spoof of the 1998 remake of ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' (since they weren't allowed to review it and Crow's use of the title is even bleeped out) using a toy iguana calling it "Goshzilla".
-->"And Mike paid a quarter to watch it, so [[TakeThat it's already made more money than]] [[SoundEffectBleep *bleep*]]zilla."
* An episode of ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' featured Kermit as "Frogzilla".
* An episode of ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'' had Sabrina be a Godzilla parody.
** Another episode dealt with Sabrina having to try and convince a parody of the USA Godzilla of all monsters to stop destroying a city. In a rather interesting reference to the film, the monster understands French but not Japanese.
* In the ''Series/ICarly'', Freddie's date gets lemon juice squirted in her eye and rampages thru Carl's model Utopian city like Godzilla.
* Even the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'' has done this trope! Makes sense when you consider that [[Creator/EijiTsuburaya the special effects guy]] behind Godzilla created the franchise.
** Gomess from the first episode of [[Series/UltraQ the first series]] (Though, he's made many appearances since) was made from a modified Godzilla suit. He still looks distinct enough that you probably wouldn't notice that if you first saw him. Beyond the suits, Gomess doesn't have much in common with Godzilla.
** Jirass from Episode 10 of the original ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'', who is physically nothing more than Godzilla with a frill (Even then, Ultraman tears off the frill in the battle, creating the closest you'll ever get to ''Ultraman vs. Godzilla''). He even uses a modified version of Godzilla's roar, a similar BreathWeapon, and has the same suit actor! He does have a different origin story though (the creation of a mad scientist obsessed with dinosaurs). Eiji Tsuburaya did not intend Jirass to look like Godzilla, but due to budget issues during the early episodes, he borrowed the Godzilla costume from Toho Studios for usage.
** Earthron (originally from the first episode of ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman'', but has appeared in other entries) is strongly based on Godzilla, though he still manages to carry a distinct appearance like a horn on his head, two rows of fleshy ridges where Godzilla has his famous spines, a different head design, and magma breath. It's probably not a coincidence that Ishiro Honda directed his debut episode and the Earthron costume was designed by the guy who made the Godzilla suit either.
** Demaaga from the first episode of ''Series/UltramanX'', like Earthron is based on Godzilla, but not made from a Godzilla costume like Gomess and Jirass. However, beyond resemblance, he bears nothing in common as Demaaga is primarily [[PlayingWithFire a fire monster.]]
* {{Series/ThirtyRock}}: Tracy's con-artist fake son Donald starts a Kaiju-themed Dinner Theater restaurant featuring "[[OverlyLongName Godzila with one 'L' for trademark reasons.]]"
* Hannibal plays a Godzilla knock-off monster named Gatorella in ''Series/TheATeam''.
* ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' and its American counterpart ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' occasionally feature these as well:
** ''Series/KyoryuSentaiZyuranger/Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' (season 1) had Dragon Caesar/Dragon Zord, a HumongousMecha used by the SixthRanger.
** ''Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman/Series/PowerRangersLostGalaxy'' had Daitanix/Titanosaur, a Godzilla-expy monster used by Captain Zahab/Catain Mutiny.

[[folder: Magazines]]
* The magazine ''G-Fan'''s mascot is a Godzilla parody named "Gfantis".
* ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' magazine once had a editor's note about their refusal to print ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' stats for Godzilla, the editor at the time simply stated that, licensing issues aside, they could change his name to "Herman" and most PC's would be lizard food.

[[folder: Music]]
* [[http://dontmesswithdinosaurs.com The Historian Himself]]'s songs (especially ''Approaching Destroyers'') often features {{Kaiju}} that sound suspiciously Godzilla like in description, with such words as "reptilian", "prehistoric", and "extinct" being used to describe them.

[[folder: Other]]
* Mozilla, the original mascot of Netscape and the namesake of the Mozilla Foundation and community (whose logo is a red dinosaur instead).
* There was a novelty light sold in Spencer's Gifts stores called "Flamezilla".
* The term "{{Bridezilla}}" actually has nothing to do with this trope, instead referring to a bride whose behavior is demanding or unreasonable. Nonetheless, the word itself clearly has the -zilla suffix with Godzilla in mind.

[[folder: Pinball]]
* In ''Pinball/RedAndTedsRoadShow,'' San Francisco gets attacked by a giant lizard monster. Red and Ted have to stop it with their bulldozer.

[[folder: Tabletop Game]]
* The ''Mecha vs Kaiju'' setting has {{Expy}} Kaibutsu (which translates as "Monster"). Every inch of it is a Godzilla reference, ranging from being portrayed as a dinosaur-monster to having atomic breath and connections to the A-bomb.
* With their 4th Bestiary, the ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' system introduced their version of kaiju (naturally, enormous primal monsters with dramatic titles). The names of about a dozen are listed with no information, but one of the statted-out examples was Mogaru, the Final King - a 300' bipedal reptilian monster with huge dorsal spines that breathes firey red force beams and who occasionally shows up just to fight other rampaging kaiju.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Monsterpocalypse}}'' has Terra Khan as this. As a {{Kaiju}} miniature game this is almost mandatory.

[[folder: Toys]]
* Several novelty plastic dinosaur toys tend to contain at least one dinosaur that vaguely resembles Godzilla.
* ''{{Transformers}}'' had a Notzilla of the ''American'' Godzilla in one toyline: Cruellock.
* The Gojulas from ''Franchise/{{Zoids}}'', the mainstay of the whole line before the emphasis on Ligers in the anime. It's been remade and upgraded several times, and even acknowledges Zilla with the Gojulas Giga.
** Taken further with one called "Brachio-Zilla" who's tank-like turrets could also count it as a notzilla of MechaGodzilla.

[[folder: Video Games]]
* The trope image is Goshilla, one of the six stock monsters in Epyx's ''VideoGame/CrushCrumbleAndChomp'' strategy computer game. Goshilla himself is a giant amphibian reptile with a BreathWeapon who leaves a trail of radioactive waste, and can swim underwater when the humans become too annoying.
* ''Videogame/{{Rampage}}'' features Lizzie, a woman who has mutated into a giant Godzilla-esque lizard monster.
* The Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Tyranitar is a reference to Godzilla. Several Pokedex entries even state that it goes into destructive rampages.
** Similarly, Feraligatr shares a design reminiscent of that of USA Godzilla.
* One level of ''[[TheSimpsons Bart's Nightmare]]'' has Bart dreaming he's a giant monster named "Bartzilla".
* ''[[Videogame/{{Shinobi}} The Revenge of Shinobi]]'' features a boss battle against a Godzilla parody.
* In ''[[Videogame/{{Bonk}} Super Bonk]]'', eating meat transforms the player character into a bizarre-looking Godzilla-esque monster when they are under the effects of candy that enlarges their body.
* One level in ''[[Videogame/{{Gex}} Gex: Enter The Gecko]]'' has the titular lizard transforming into "Gexzilla".
* ''Videogame/DestroyAllHumans 2'' features a monster named "Kojira".
* The Zilla (not to be confused with the Toho monster of the same name) class monsters from the ''Videogame/MonsterRancher'' franchise are a PunnyName parody of Godzilla. They look like a cross between a whale and an ape [[BilingualBonus (The name "Gojira" is a combination of the words "Kujira" (Japanese for "Whale") and "Gorilla" meaning it literally translates into "Whale Ape").]]
* The first opponent faced in ''VideoGame/TimeGal'' is a dinosaur that looks like a cross between a ''TyrannosaurusRex'' and a Godzilla without the dorsal spines. It even has Godzilla's same roar and BreathWeapon.
* Geon from ''Videogame/KingOfTheMonsters'' is a clear take on Godzilla. The same applies to his evolution, Super Geon, in the sequel.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMmLTdeD_2U Reptomicus!]] from the budget PC title, ''I Was An Atomic Mutant''.
* SuperMarioBros villain Bowser definitely has more Godzilla-esque trappings the bigger he gets--see, for example, ''VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory'', where he makes himself huge in order to battle over-sized enemies. (In his normal size, he's a bit too obese and ineffectual to inspire terror.)
* ''VideoGame/WarOfTheMonsters'' has Togera who is reptilian/dinosaur, has a BreathWeapon, and similar roars. What makes him notably different from Godzilla is that Togera [[BladeBelowTheShoulder can grow spikes out of his skin and use them as a weapon]].
* The ''Franchise/MonsterHunter'' series features the Deviljho, which looks like a hideous cross between Godzilla and a pickle. It's a nomadic SuperPersistentPredator known for devouring ''entire species'' in its endless hunger, and it also has a BreathWeapon that's often a OneHitKill. As such, it's considered TheDreaded both in- and out-of-universe, even by ''other monsters'' (most of which flee the area the moment one appears).
** The Lao-Shan Lung from the same series doesn't have the breath weapon, but is otherwise a dead ringer for Godzilla.

[[folder: Web Original]]
* The [[GreatBigBookOfEverything Neopedia]] from the {{Website/Neopets}} website talks about a giant mutant Chia named "Chiazilla".
* In the Brian Engh short film ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGVzNxbUn1Y Children of Stone]]'', the opening monologue talks about [[PrehistoricMonster ancient]] [[DinosaursareDragons reptilian]] creatures being such a threat to humankind that EarthMother has to create [[RockMonster giant stone guardians]] to protect her human creations. These creatures are so deadly, that they actually succeed in killing one of the stone guardians. When we see the stone guardians later in the movie, it turns out that they are not only huge, but sky scraper tall... at least, [[YourSizeMayVary depending on the shot]].

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'', one of the recurring ShowWithinAShow characters was a child-friendly giant monster named "Reptar".
** One hour-long special even centered around a Reptar-themed spoof of ''Godzilla VS Mechagodzilla''.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' has a giant monster named "Shagzilla". He's supposed to be Shaggy cursed to transform into a Godzilla parody at night ([[spoiler:Actually, it's a giant robot built by the villain of the week.]]).

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'' featured Mung Daal and Truffles dressed up as parodies of Godzilla and Mothra before being stepped on by another Godzilla parody.
* The Zillo Beast from ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' is an homage/parody of Godzilla and Film/KingKong. The Russian translation makes the allusion even more obvious by translating the beast's name as "Gad Zillo" (Zillo the Reptile).
* One episode of the series ''WesternAnimation/ClassOf3000'' had a FunnyBackgroundEvent of a Godzilla parody fighting a Mothra parody.
* An ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' parody of "Literature/JackAndTheBeanstalk" soon segues into a take on ''Literature/GreenEggsAndHam'' (Gold Eggs and Meat), with Yakko asking the giant, "Would you could you in Japan? With Godzilla and Rodan?". At which point parodies of the two show up. When the giant refuses, they attack him.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987'' had a Godzilla-esque robot used for shooting a movie. Its name, at least in the French dub, was Gorgonzola.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters'''s universe has Lizardo as the fictional monsters from a Kaiju film franchise (although it looks more similar to ''Film/{{Gorgo}}'' than Godzilla, but still is located in Japan, not Britan). Fictional, that is, until escapes from the movies into the real world by Phlebotinum.
* An unnamed monster (but clearly Godzilla) and its daughter appears at the end of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGhoulSchool'' promting Scooby and Shaggy to quit their teaching job and run away.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Spike contracts a nasty case of [[GoldFever dragon greed]] in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E10SecretOfMyExcess "Secret Of My Excess"]], which is described as being able to induce destructive urges and rapid growth in dragons. True to form, he eventually grows into a gigantic reptilian monster and rampages throughout Ponyville in search of things to add to his growing DragonHoard, with clear homages to both Godzilla and King Kong.

[[folder: Real Life]]
* Toho, the movie company that created the Godzilla character had been viciously defending the trademark since their character is so popular, trademarks tend to be forgotten and people tend to assume Godzilla is in the public domain. As it has been said, "If you think Godzilla's scary, wait 'till you meet his lawyers!
* Sears, Roebuck & Co., a garbage bin company, was sued by Toho for marketing "''bagzilla''" garbage bags as "''monstrously strong bags.''" The adverising package even depicts a giant lizard.
* A similar issue rose with the game 'Fingerzilla' in which Toho complained that the title screen looked too much like Godzilla.
