* EvilAllAlong: It's implied that had Mechagodzilla successfully activated and defeated Godzilla, he would have turned it against humanity afterward, which us something Metphies correctly deduces in the first film. Sure enough, by the time the second film rolls around and Mechagodzilla turns out to still he active, Galu-gu plots to use it for nefarious purposes once Godzilla is dealt with.

Mechagodzilla is a giant robot that the Bilusaludo patterned after Godzilla--as the name suggests--and intended to use it to kill Godzilla and then turn it on humanity to conquer Earth for themselves. Unfortunately for them, Mechagodzilla refused to activate, and was left abandoned on Earth when Godzilla attacked the facility where it was being stored. [[spoiler:''City on the Edge of Battle'' reveals that Mechagodzilla's head has assimilated the surrounding area into the eponymous Mechagodzilla City, becoming a perfect weapon against Godzilla Earth.]]
----
* AIIsACrapshoot: Mechagodzilla refused to activate when Godzilla attacked the base it was being stored in, and as a result its body was destroyed and the algorithm restraining the nanometal was glitched. This enabled it to spread for 20,000 years by assimilating the bodies of the workers left behind, as well as Servum who flew too close to it.
* TheAssimilator: Mechagodzilla's nanometal [[GreyGoo begins spreading]] over the course of 20,000 years [[spoiler:by killing and assimilating any and all Servum that approach it, resulting in the formation of the titular Mobile City. Mulu-elu Galu-gu and Rilu-elu Belu-be willingly allow themselves to be assimilated by the nanometal, while Yuko Tani is partially assimilated and left in a coma when Mechagodzilla is destroyed by Godzilla]].
* TheDreaded: While the Houtua use its nanometal to augment their weapons, they avoid the Mobile City it originated from--viewing it as being cursed.
* DeconstructedCharacterArchetype: Of Mechagodzilla and the other giant robots in the franchise. Humanity and the Bilusaludo wanted to build a giant robot in Godzilla's likeness to kill him. What they got was a misshapen, toxic, hideous machine that barely functioned properly and was easily destroyed. In the present time, the machine itself is useless, too small to injure Godzilla Earth, and its nanomachine nature means it will do more damage to the planet than Godzilla will.
* DragonInChief: To Galu-gu, as his greatest creation [[spoiler:and the true main antagonist of the second movie.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: Small glimpses of it in are seen ''Planet of the Monsters''; it is featured more extensively in ''City on the Edge of Battle''. [[spoiler:To an extent, due to having been destroyed, and Galu-Gu remarking that rebuilding it would be pointless.]]
* EvilCounterpart: To Godzilla Earth, but not in the traditional sense. [[spoiler:Rather than being a machine made in Godzilla's image, Mechagodzilla more or less IS the entire City. The nanometal that comprised it is slowly terraforming the planet in the same way Godzilla did, but spreading pollution and killing the indigenous life in the process. In this form, Mechagodzilla is now equal to Godzilla Earth not as an imitation, but as an equal-and-opposite '''god'''. And unlike Godzilla's terraforming, Mechagodzilla's is shown to not just be limited to plant life. Just ask poor Yuko...]]
* EvilKnockoff: To Godzilla, as per usual.
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Mechagodzilla isn't exactly sentient when its remains are abandoned on Earth. It simply follows its assimilation programming, absorbing creatures into its body and forming structures. The Houtua even treat it like a part of the planet's ecosystem steering clear of its danger but still able to use it to craft tools. In the end, it's more of a tool for Gelu-gu who integrates his mind with it and steers Mechagodzilla's actions.
* GeniusLoci: Essentially becomes this once the Bilusaludo take control of the city, being guided by their minds.
* GreyGoo: The nanometal it is comprised of can assimilate organic matter, [[spoiler:with Metphies expressing concern that it will never stop spreading until everything on Earth has been consumed]].
* HumongousMecha: Subverted. [[spoiler:[=MechaGodzilla=] was once this, but has spread and grown into the giant City in the title.]]
* MindHive: Its AI contains the minds of those it assimilates, [[spoiler:enabling Galu-gu and Belu-be to take control of the Mobile City]].
* MythologyGag: Mechagodzilla, while having a completely new redesign, is a calvacade of these.
** Just like the 1974 Mechagodzilla it was designed by ape-like aliens whose planet was devoured by a black-hole. [[spoiler: And it is finally destroyed the same way--decapitated by Godzilla, and then later having its head and living controller destroyed to permanently kill it after its alien masters resurrect it.]]
** Just like the 90s Mechagodzilla 2, it was designed with multiple weapons and defenses to counter all of Godzilla's known abilities, and these defenses are weakened [[spoiler:by Godzilla exuding so much heat that its parts start to melt.]]
** Lastly, much like Kiryu, Mecha-Godzilla more or less went berserk and was unable to be activated when needed, leading to its defeat in the backstory, and the initial fear is that it's somehow gone out of control and forcibly consuming people. [[spoiler:This last part is not entirely true. While it does absorb people, this is all part of Galu-Gu's plan.]]
* NotQuiteDead: While its body was all-but destroyed by Godzilla's initial attack, enough of its head survived that it was able to be reactivated. Godzilla finishes the job at the end of ''City on the Edge of Battle'' with [[TeethClenchedTeamwork some help]] from Haruo.
* RagnarokProofing: Zig-zagged. While Mechagodzilla itself was destroyed during Godzilla's initial attack, as a result of its self-sustaining nanometal, it was able to infest the surrounding area over 20,000 years. [[spoiler:And it wasn't entirely destroyed either.]]
* {{Robeast}}: Mechagodzilla is a Bilusaludo-constructed [[MechanicalMonster robotic replica of Godzilla]], built out of hyper-advanced "nanometal" and possessing weapons designed to counter Godzilla's powers, but differs significantly in appearance from its organic counterpart.
%%* ShadowArchetype: To Godzilla Earth.
* TransformingMecha: Due to being comprised of nanometal, it was supposedly able to reconfigure its body as-needed -- though this feature was never displayed due to it refusing to activate.
* TronLines: When Belu-be activates its corpse, cybernetic markings appear along its body and extend across the floor of its replicated facility -- which is an extension of its body.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: Of a benign sort, as despite being in operational condition, Mecha-Godzilla refused to activate when Godzilla attacked the facility where it was being housed. The Bilusaludo also intended to invoke this once Godzilla was destroyed in order to TakeOverTheWorld.
* TheUnfought: Subverted. Its body was destroyed when Godzilla attacked its facility, leaving only part of its head intact. The head proceeded to use its nanometal to reconstruct the facility used to construct it 100 times larger, creating the "Mechagodzilla City". As it's too badly damaged and rebuilding its frame would be useless against a Godzilla six times larger and exponentially more powerful than the one it was built to fight (about Godzilla Filius's size), Mecha-Godzilla itself ''can't'' directly fight Godzilla. So it doesn't. [[{{PlayedWith}} Instead, it fights *as* the opposing City]], matching Godzilla Earth ''not'' as a physical replication, but as an artificial ''god'' that can defeat it. [[spoiler:Then Haruo decides that they can't risk Mechagodzilla winning if it means the Earth will become assimilated, turning the tables and allowing Godzilla to finish the City off.]]
* WalkingArmory: Mechagodzilla's original body was armed with a plethora of anti-Godzilla weapons, including a homing Blade Launcher with a range of 3 kilometres; the Convergent Neutron Cannon, a particle beam with a range of 5 kilometres; a Hyper Lance that could inject opponents with nanometal, which would consume them from the inside-out; and a tail that could transform into a blade. [[spoiler:Of course, the mech itself is not used to directly confront Godzilla Earth.]]

* MythologyGag: His fighting against King Caesar is likely a reference to their ancient rivalry in ''ComicBook/GodzillaRulersOfEarth''.
