films are filled with nothing but epic monster battles
and hilarious corny moments
Not so fast. Turns out the King Of The Monsters has a softer side
. These are the moments where the Japanese Kaiju makes you want to go "awwww".
- The ending of Son Of Godzilla in which Godzilla lovingly embraces his son and keeps him warm as the island freezes over. It's the first time Godzilla shows any sort of compassion towards anyone.
- Towards the end of Tokyo SOS, Kiryu (the original Godzilla's skeleton outfitted with mechanical parts) refuses the order to kill Godzilla. Rather than destroy his "son", he lovingly picks him up and flies him out to sea where they both rest, presumably until mankind breaks the keys off in the lock of science again. Though, he has time to leave one final message to one of the pilots-
Kiryu: Goodbye, Yoshido.
- Godzilla's reunion with Junior in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. Even if it does turn into a Tear Jerker at the end. Just seeing them together again is rather uplifting.
- In Rebirth of Mothra 3, the mortally wounded Rainbow Mothra is rescued by two prehistoric Mothra larvaes. Despite being from different ends of the evolution scale the two babies aid their descendant. Whether it was a burial or intended to give Mothra an upgrade the two babies' actions helped save the future. Also the end where all the parents are reunited with their missing children is actually pretty heart warming.
- Say what you want about Minya, but when he steps between Godzilla and the humans at the end of Final Wars and manages to convince Godzilla to finally let go of his anger toward humanity... ::sniff::
- The Anguirus Song.
- The ending of the book, Who's Afraid of Godzilla?
- It's not much, but Jet Jaguar shakes Godzilla's hand in absolute gratitude when he first saves him and then does it again once the battle is over and Godzilla prepares to leave.
- Made better by the fact that Jet Jaguar's a frickin' awesome robot, and robots aren't particularly known for having emotions. Somewhere along the way, when he gained sentience, Jet Jaguar learned how to express gratitude.
- This PSA made using clips of Godzilla and Minilla. Even Kaiju can be good fathers, too.
