Miki's interactions with the Cosmos in Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla were hallucinations.Come on, she only speaks to them and sees them when no one else is around, and they themselves don't have any impact on the plot. Miki's psychic powers are just going through a weird phase and the Cosmos hallucinations are a product of that.
The red water in Son of Godzilla is actually Gatorade.Well, someone had to say it eventually. It's red-colored water, and it gives energy to the people who drink it, just like Gatorade.
Godzilla is not a radioactive mutant.The monster is and always has been part of Earth's natural immune system along with all the other earth monsters to protect it's self from threats from outer space and man made creations gone horribly wrong. If the earth is alive, you really couldn't have a better system of anti-bodies. Humanity over extends itself, monster attack. Alien invaders attack, monsters rise up to defend. Aliens try to control monsters, humanity steps in and acts like medicine to enable the fight to continue. Godzilla is not a mutant, he's always been this way. The ultimate cure for the worst infections.
Godzilla isn't a metaphor for the atomic bomb. He's a metaphor for Imperial Japan.With the original movie, Honda made the ultimate Take That to Tojo and Hirohito by depicting Imperial Japan as an oppressive, rampaging Tyrannosaurus Rex (which, by the way, roughly means "Tyrant Lizard King" in Latin) that ends up leaving Japan in ruins, just as getting the country involved in World War II did. The Oxygen Destroyer is the real A-bomb metaphor. Its role in the story parallels the bomb's role in the War: it was a super-weapon built by a reclusive, self-loathing scientist to combat one threat (the rise of fascism) only to give rise to a worse threat (the Atomic age and the threat of nuclear annihilation). And just like Hirohito, Godzilla becomes much less menacing once the super-weapon leads to his defeat: after World War II, Hirohito went from a powerful dictator to a harmless figurehead in Japan's new democratic government. After the first Godzilla movie, the Big G went from the antagonist of a serious Horror movie to the protagonist of a series of Lighter and Softer escapist monster movies.
Zilla Jr. is actually the real GodzillaIt actually would explain a lot. Godzilla fans have remarked on how Zilla Jr. is more similar to Godzilla than "GINO" is. He's more aggressive, has nuclear breath, acts much more like the original, and is much more friendly towards humans (Godzilla was never necessarily friendly, but he wasn't exactly a big, dumb lizard either). And Godzilla's human-like behavior and large differences from Zilla could also be explained by being raised by humans, as seen in Godzilla: The Series.
Zilla is the unacknowledged mate of Godzilla
Godzilla is LeviathanHuge beyond comparison. Immune to all conventional human weapons. Breathes fire. Comes from but is not limited to the ocean. Incredibly ancient, to be only remembered in the oldest legends and myths as a terrifying figure. Hel-lo?
Belvera was evil because she was discriminated againstWhen Moll, Lora, and Belvera were born into their civilization, triplets were probably atypical, doubly so for fraternal triplets. As a result, the three were bullied by society. Moll and Lora had each other and probably a Mothra for support, but Belvera cracked under pressure and probably incurred the downfall of their civilization therafter.
At the end of Destroy all Monsters, the barriers from Monster Island are goneWe can all say the researchers found it cruel to lock up the Kaiju, so after King Ghidorah's death, the humans can trust the Kaiju once more, and decided not to lock them up, as long as they do not havoc mankind, which they did not ever do again.
More monsters were in DAM, just not on screenMaybe during the final fight with Ghidorah, Baragon, Varan, and Manda were not there because they were fighting another monster sent by the Kiliaks, such as Gigan and Megalon. We can also say more monsters were battling those 2, like Ebirah, Kamacuraus, Titanosaurus, Maguma, and adult Mothra. Adult Mothra could have been on Infant Island, and was called by Godzilla or some other ally of her's to help fight.
Kaiju age slower than normalThink about it. How can Godzilla still be well and fighting fine in 1999 when he was an adult in 1955. Simple. About 4 to 6 years equals a year to Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, etc. Same with Minilla, as he is still a baby in 1999.
Godzillasaurus lived in the Marshall Islands, and survived extinctionDr. Yamane could have been wrong. I think Godzillasaurus were a race of dinosaurs that survived extinction, and lived on the Marshall Islands. They all lived in peace together, until the testings went on, killing every one of the poor dinos, minus two young ones, who mutated into the Godzillas.
King Ghidorah is smarter than he looksBecause the Big Bad being smarter is cool. I think he can speak some alien language, along with Gigan, but does not choose to do so, because nobody on Earth will understand him.
Godzilla was killed at the end of Monster ZeroIn the following film, Godzilla vs. The Sea Monster, Godzilla is found sleeping. It is quite possible he was dying, the humans were able to revive him with lightning.
Son of Godzilla takes place in the 1980's or 90'sEven though Kaiju age slower, if SOG takes place in the late 60's and DAM takes place in 1999, Minilla would still be older. Reason why he is not? SOG takes place in the 80's or 90's.
Godzilla dies at the end of Son of Godzilla if it takes place in the 80's.A follow up to the above WMG. At the end of Son of Godzilla, Godzilla comes back the dying Minilla in the snow, as he holds on to his child, as the snow buries them both. Sure the guy said they are hibernating, but one thing. REPTILES ARE COLD-BLOODED. Now I guess it is possible that they are warm-blooded, but unlikely. So naturally, they would die. However, if Godzilla is able to keep Minilla warm, it is possible that Godzilla froze to death, as Minilla moved on, and became the Godzilla in Destroy All Monsters. The Minilla in that movie can be an all new baby.
Every Godzilla is just a different member of the same species.Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah almost confirms this with it’s conundrum about Godzilla’s presence after the switch was made. Perhaps the Godzillasaur on the Marshall Islands was trying to protect its nest. Regardless of whether the Futurians switched the bodies of the dinosaur in 1944 and Godzilla in the present day, the eggs would’ve still been affected by the radiation producing the same mutation. This explains the variance in appearance, powers, and personality. It would also explain the presence of other Baby Godzillas being found.
Megalon is a cyborg like GiganThat would explain his bombs, drill and laser beams.
King Ghidorah is never really under mind controlAfter his initial defeat he merely allowed various aliens to believe they were controlling him. That way he gets backed up by either the alien military (Monster Zero) or another monster (Vs. Gigan). If any of the aliens had succeeded in conquering the Earth they would have had a nasty surprise when Ghidorah turned on them once they had served their purpose. He was the one really in charge the whole time.
The Futurians are actually from the Showa timeline and accidentally created the Heisei timelineThey say they were getting rid of Godzilla so he couldn't defend Japan, something Godzilla hadn't yet done in the Heisei timeline. Then Wilson tells them the new Godzilla is unfriendly...when was Godzilla ever friendly in the Heisei era? So, when they teleported Godzilla, it resulted in an alternate timeline. The Dorats were created using DNA from the dead Showa Ghidorah.
The Heisei Godzilla films are a prelude the Showa era.It has been a widely accepted canon amongst fans and officials of the Godzilla franchise that the events of the Showa and Heisei occur separately within their own continuity. That’s if you look at them within in their own connected-in some cases loosely- chain of order, but what if the continuity was reversed to show that the canon established in the recent and 90’s eras are a build up to the classic films. The order of events would follow in this sequence: • Godzilla-1954 • Rodan-1956 • Return of Godzilla- 1984 • Godzilla vs. Biollante- 1989 • Godzilla vs. Mothra- 1991 (see below) • Mecha Godzilla, Space Godzilla, and Desotroyah- 1992, 94, 95 • The rest of the Showa series (Raids Again->Ghidorah-> Monster Zero, etc.) I originally wanted to try and tie in the Shinei era films but even they have their own stated continuity patterns that would need to be amended. The best possible choice from that period would be Godzilla 2000 because it stands alone in terms of continuity and could either be dealing with the adult form of Junior. The decision to remove Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah from canon is in part to the rather tricky nature of the time travel plot. Granted it could still fit in- otherwise the opening of Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla 93 with Mecha King Ghidorah would have to be discounted.
Godzilla is a Time LordKind of. Just not a Time Lord, but a Time Animal. That explains why he changes his looks every few films. He regenerates alot.
Godzilla and Mothra are in loveWhy not? It's no more ridiculous than 80% of any thing else in Godzilla.
The reason Minilla looks almost nothing like his fatherThe Kamacuras broke open the egg too soon, causing him to deform.
Monster Island and Monsterland are two different placesMonster Island is actually Sollgel Island from Son of Godzilla, which explains it's appearance in Godzilla vs. Gigan and Godzilla vs. Megalon.
Zilla Jr. mutated as a result of Zilla's radiationThe Baby Zillas were continually mutated while still inside of Zilla. Zilla Jr. got his powers from the mutations happening just so, also making him sterile. He isn't anymore radioactive than a microwave (like most versions) but the inside of Zilla was, which caused the mutations.
Godzilla is a Tarrasque.There's (usually) only one of him in the whole world, most conventional weapons do nothing to him, he destroys the hell out of everything he encounters, and your only hope is to make him go back to sleep (until the next movie).
NES Godzilla Creepypasta can be tied into the film series.After the events of Godzilla vs. Megaguirus, the Dimension Tide sends Godzilla into a virtual limbo between the fictional world and the “real” one where kaiju are products of fiction. Godzilla is manifested in this world as a sprite in a video game called, Godzilla: Monster of Monsters. The only catch is that Godzilla is at the mercy of the individual playing said game in their reality. Throughout the narrative of the creepypasta it is implied that the characters within the game are living creatures. So you would actually be controlling THE Godzilla!
Gigan is an intergalactic mercenaryIt's been noted many times that Gigan clearly enjoys his work. Moreover, unlike most of the other monsters, he must possess at least some degree of intelligence, if only to use all of his high-tech weaponry possible. It's not too much of a stretch to suppose that the big cyborg is a Psycho for Hire in fact as well as trope. Perhaps he's from a planet where everyone grows to four hundred feet, and realising the size advantage that this gave him over all the little people, left his planet to pursue a career as a nigh-unstoppable mercenary. He may well have a different employer in every film; alternately, he has a long-running contract with Ghidorah (whom he worked with in Godzilla vs Gigan and Final Wars), and his work with Megalon and the Seatopians was simply a sidejob.
If Destoroyah is killed instantly, every microbe making up his body diesDestoroyah merging creates a Hive Mind, which has advantages, but at the same time, if the fused creature is killed before he can separate, the entire body dies due to the Hive Mind linking them all.
Godzilla didn't die at the end of Godzilla vs DestroyahThink about it, every time Godzilla absorbs radiation, he converts it into body mass/energy, being an effective form of evolution. Godzilla's 'death' was actually his transition into his next form, which considering the only way he could really get anymore powerful with that dramatic of a transition would make him in a nigh-omnipotent eldritch abomination with the Jr. being his avatar.
Manda's "Black Curse" killed King Ghidorah in "Destroy All Monsters".In Atragon the Muans threat that if the world does not surrender to them, Manda will place his "black curse" upon the world. We never actually get to see that in action and are subsequently lead to believe it is just some superstitious nonsense the Muans believe. But how can we be sure he doesn't have said power. He is "supposed" to be a god, after all? Maybe it wasn't just the brute strength of the monsters, but Manda's chieftain-type magic that lead to Ghidorah's demise? And while we're WM Ging "Destroy All Monsters", perhaps Baragon was tunneling underground beneath the fighting monsters and this is why Angilas sinks into the ground slightly when dropped from mid-air by Ghidorah and Ghidorah's corpse sinks into the ground when the Kilaak base is destroyed. This only leaves Varan's lollygagging unaccounted for.
In the IDW comics, Monster X will become Keizer Ghidorah in the last two issues.I'm pretty sure if IDW brought in Monster X, they're going to have him transform into his ultimate form and really wreck shit up.
