Gojira / Godzilla
"The top of the primordial ecosystem. A god, for all intents and purposes."

Portrayed By: T.J. Storm (motion capture), Andy Serkis (additional motion capture, uncredited)

Appears In: Godzilla | Kong: Skull Island (cameo) | Godzilla King of the Monsters | Godzilla vs. Kong

Species: Giant prehistoric amphibious reptile "Titanus Gojira"

"Gojira may be the answer. I believe he's here to restore balance. He can defeat them."
Dr. Ishiro Serizawa

The last known living member of a species of gigantic amphibious beasts that roamed the Earth back when the planet was being bombarded by radiation during the Permian period. The military found out about the creature in 1954, and tried to cover up his existence with several nuclear strikes that were reported as tests - but these failed to have any effect on the monster. He eventually re-emerged in 2014, having a score to settle with the MUTOs.

In 2019, the humans find him at the bottom of the ocean wanting to be left alone. However he is called to battle against his greatest nemesis, Ghidorah.

In regards to the merchandise for the series as a whole, this version of the Big G is known as "Legendary Godzilla" to differentiate him from Toho's version (named after the company producing the films, Legendary Pictures).

    A - F 
  • 108: In the 2014 movie this version of Godzilla is 108 meters tall. He was the biggest to date until Shin Godzilla came out.
  • Accidental Hero: His actions in the final act saved countless lives; killing the M.U.T.O.s saved what remains of San Francisco and stops what could have been a global epidemic of their species. Humanity honestly didn't seem to mind, and the people of San Francisco, at the very least, seem to have embraced him with open arms, if the loud cheers and visible gestures of goodwill that are shown when Godzilla makes his way out of the city the morning after the battle are any indication.
  • Acrofatic: Contrary to his very bulky appearance and typical lumbering gait, the trailer for Godzilla King of the Monsters shows that when he wants to, Godzilla is more than capable of moving quickly, actually running across a city to confront Ghidorah. He's also very fast and agile when in water, capable of swimming from Hawaii to California in a couple of hours, easily outpacing his military escort.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Unlike most versions of the character who are usually antagonistic (and a huge case with his original incarnation, a Tragic Monster), but not as much as his Showa incarnation from Godzilla Raids Again through Destroy All Monsters who had a hefty dose of Characterization Marches On. Despite his actions in Hawaii (where he swamps Waikiki beach, the most densely populated area that time of night), he avoids attacking humans as he can and most of his rampages is due to the M.U.T.O.s posing a threat while maintaining his Destructive Hero status per his previous incarnations.
  • Age Lift: Godzilla was already gargantuan for quite some time before he got nuked in this continuity, which was the inciting incident for him becoming massive in the Toho continuity. Furthermore, the shape of his feet indicate that his species, stated to in the Awakening comic to be an amphibious reptile from the Permian, came from an earlier period of time than the Toho version.
  • Ancient Astronauts: All those sea dragons in medieval texts are in fact him, as the opening credits show of the 2014 film, and he was written about dating back to prehistoric cave paintings.
  • Anti-Hero:
    • It's not clear whether he hunts the M.U.T.O.s because he wants to stop their destruction, or simply because their two species are natural enemies; the M.U.T.O.s are parasites while Godzilla is an apex predator. Ultimately his goals end up being in humanity's favor, and he seems to actually be defending Ford Brody on purpose, though this isn't clear.
    • Anyone familiar with older Godzilla movies would have expected a far bigger number of humans and buildings that fell prey to him. However, this can merely be attributed to the fact that he is essentially made out to be more realistic in this movie than in most of the Toho films.
    • At the end of the film he is seen by one of the main characters as having his usual sentience, making him a hardcore anti-hero.
  • Art Evolution:
    • Godzilla's design was updated for the 2014 film. The most noticeable changes are gills on his neck, round, sauropod-like feet, and a much longer tail with a pointed tip. The film crew also spent quite a while tweaking his face:
      Edwards: Trying to get the face right was the main thing... I guess he's got more of a bear's face, or a dog's. We also used eagle. There's a lot of nobility in an eagle. It made him feel very majestic and noble.
    • For Godzilla: King of the Monsters his design was updated again, possessing larger dorsal spines as an homage to the original 1954 Godzilla, larger feet with clawed toes, and a shorter tail with a rounded tip. He's also taller, standing around 119 meters tall.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Gets his title "King of the Monsters" through defeating the M.U.T.O.s.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: His gills are quite sensitive and seem to be his most vulnerable area.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: At 355 feet tall, a total length of 550 feet 2 inches long, and 90,000 tons, this is the biggest and heaviest Godzilla of all time... until ShinGoji came along two years later. And then Godzilla Earth one year after that...
  • Awesome Moment of Crowning: After his triumph against the M.U.T.O., the American media bestows the well-earned title of "King of the Monsters" upon him.
  • Badass Grandpa: He's possibly the oldest incarnation of Godzilla seen on screen thus far—not just in chronological age, but in the way he acts. His scars tell the tale of many, many old battles, and at several points in the film, he just looks tired, like an old soldier dragged away from a nap. Several critics even compared him to John McClane.
  • Bears Are Bad News: His stance, design and fighting style are based off of those of bears quite a bit. A case of Shown Their Work, as Gojira's original suit actor based his movement on that of bears after studying them in zoos.
  • Behind the Black: Godzilla manages to pull this off several times despite his enormous size. For instance, during the Honolulu airport attack a helicopter shoots at the M.U.T.O. only to suddenly have to dodge Godzilla's dorsal spikes. Said M.U.T.O. itself doesn't notice Godzilla until he stomps down just a few dozen feet away from him.
  • Big Damn Heroes: The M.U.T.O.s seem unstoppable until he pimps into town to show them who's boss. The big reveal in the Honolulu airport suggests this trope, but really it's the final showdown in the San Francisco Bay that best captures it. After Ford blows up the M.U.T.O's nest, the female attempts to kill him. Cue atomic breath, allowing Ford to escape. Then later, when Ford is on the boat with the nuclear warhead. The female M.U.T.O. tries to kill him again, but Godzilla sneaks up from behind and pulls her back.
  • Big Good: In a very loose way, he is seen as this by Dr. Serizawa, who notes that the creature is humanity's best chance at survival.
  • Bioluminescence Is Cool: His dorsal plates begin to light up blue, just like they do in the TOHO films. The new film adds in the plates glowing blue from the tail up, a la Godzilla: The Series.
  • Breath Weapon: Godzilla has his Atomic Breath, true to the original incarnation of him. Unlike the laser appearance from Toho's Heisei and Millennium eras, this incarnation's atomic breath is similar to the superheated vapor appearance from the Showa era. He uses it as the coup de grâce against the female M.U.T.O. three times, but thanks to her thick armor it's only when he force-feeds it to her that it has any real effect. Its also implied that the M.U.T.O.'s EMP ability was weakening the atomic breath's effectiveness.
  • The Cameo: Makes one via cave painting in the post-credits scene of Kong: Skull Island.
  • Charged Attack: While the Showa and Heisei incarnations of Godzilla blast their Atomic Breaths almost instantly the Millennium Godzillas only had about several seconds more or less to fully let out their beams, it takes this version around 18 seconds to fully power up his Breath Weapon.
  • The Chosen One: If the stinger from Kong: Skull Island is to be believed. Cave paintings depict either a recording of a previous clash between Godzilla and Ghidorah, or a prophecy alluding to a forthcoming battle between them. May even double as both.
  • Combat Pragmatism: While it can be difficult to see, he does adapt to his opponents based on their strengths and weaknesses. It's also how he kills them most effectively. This may also be why he seems to avoid the boats by diving under them and does not destroy the Golden Gate Bridge until he literally falls through it.
  • Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: Averted. Despite rumors that Godzilla would not be referred to as such in this film, Dr. Serizawa introduces him during the briefing as "Gojira" and the military uses the name Godzilla as a code name for the beast. News broadcasts even dub him "King of the Monsters."
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: In comparison to the previous Godzillas, he does not go out of his way to destroy everything in sight. Some of the damages he causes seems to be accidental instead of intentional. He does not even bear a grudge against the humans who nuked him in 1954, in stark contrast to his original incarnation who hates humans for what he has become. While he's Heisei Godzilla in personality (as in an aggressive fighter), he does not even attack the humans who fire at him because he's more focused on defeating the M.U.T.O.s. Previous incarnations will annihilate tank and ship units if they inconvenience him. This thing? He dives under ship units and does not bother attacking the tank units on the Golden Gate Bridge. And let's not get into details about Shin Godzilla. It also extends to his Meaningful Name, "God Incarnate". Every Godzilla before and after him bears the title of God of Destruction. He surprisingly doesn't, as despite the destruction he causes, whether intentional or not, he is Gaia's God incarnate, set to restore balance, whether against the Mutos or Ghidorah.
  • Covered in Scars: He is covered in old battle scars, highlighting not only his age, but also showing that he's been "maintaining the balance" for quite a while.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Zig-zagged. While he is potentially as dangerous to humanity as the M.U.T.O.s (if not more so), he also serves as a Destructive Savior. It is notable that Godzilla does not go out of his way to destroy stuff like he usually does.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: The descriptions for the tie-in toys refer to Godzilla's Atomic Breath as being a powerful last resort weapon due to it draining his internal radiation supplies. The 2014 video game illustrates this by only giving him two charges and a longer recharge time.
  • Dented Iron: He's absolutely ancient, and shows it at times, especially after the beating he takes in the final fight. After killing the Male M.U.T.O., he pauses to catch his breath, and once the female's dead he outright collapses.
  • Destructive Savior: Even though he's mankind's only hope against the M.U.T.O.s (this does not necessarily make him a true hero, only in the metaphorical sense), Godzilla leaves a substantial amount of destruction in his wake. He doesn't intentionally destroy stuff, though. It's mostly just a case of him just passing through, as he's just that big. At the end of the film, he is hailed (accurately) as the savior of the human race, making him a literal Destructive Savior.
  • Determinator: Chases the M.U.T.O.s relentlessly for miles and when he finally catches up to them, continues fighting even as he was being mauled by the two at once while constantly getting back up no matter how severely he's beaten down. Even a skyscraper collapsing on him only slowed him down for a few minutes.
  • Disney Death: The nuke that was dropped on him in the beginning should've killed him, right? Nope, he lived through it. This happens twice in the last battle, both times coming out alive but exhausted after a long and brutal fight with each of the M.U.T.O.s. The first time occurs when he's buried by a skyscraper after crushing the male M.U.T.O. against it. The second time occurs when he literally collapses to the ground after killing the female M.U.T.O., and stays there well into the next day before waking up.
  • Dynamic Entry: Taken to awesome levels in the airport scene. We get a shot of Godzilla's massive foot, then Godzilla in full view roars at his opponent. He did this again when facing off with the female M.U.T.O. in San Francisco.
  • Edible Ammunition: Theoretically, this should apply to him, though we see no signs that he absorbs radiation in the same way he did during the Heisei series. However as proved in the prologue set in 1954, nuking Godzilla doesn't seem to work and probably just made him even stronger.
  • Enemy Mine: Of a sort - he refuses to attack the military (who attack him on occasion) because they are opposed to the MUTOs. It helps that it's quite quickly established that the military is effectively no threat to either of them.
  • Era-Specific Personality: The film once again makes him the terrifying force of nature he was in his earliest films but also continues the Heisei/Millennium portrayal of him being an unintentional defender of humans from other monsters.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: He comes from the Permian period predating dinosaurs but he retains much of the classic Godzilla's look. The extras on the Blu-Ray clarifying that, yes, this Godzilla is a Dinosaur, though being from the Permian means he could be either one of the first dinosaurs or he's a extremely derived dinosauriform...
  • Everything's Better with Samurai: Not used or invoked in the film itself, but Gareth Edwards has said that if this incarnation of Godzilla were a human, he would be "the last samurai".
    Gareth Edwards: He's an ancient warrior who's the last of his kind, and his kind has long since died out. He lives a very solitary lonely existence and he's very happy to keep away from everyone, but we keep doing things to force him to return and put things right.
  • Eye Color Change: His Supernatural Gold Eyes were changed to a reddish orange sclera that goes along with his Art Evolution.
  • Feeling Their Age: He's definitely been around for eons, no doubt there are two signs of it in the movie displaying his age. After impaling the male MUTO with building debris he hunches down a little to recuperate from presumably hours of tireless fighting. Near the end when civilians are being rescued everyone just assumed that he's dead but in reality he was just sleeping albeit motionless which is Truth in Television when the way how elderly people take naps it almost gives off the implication that they're dead but thankfully aren't.
  • Foil: To Rodan. Godzilla, for intents and purposes, a "good guy" on a loose definition, is revered as a God Incarnate that will fight dangerous opponents that threatens all life on Earth. Rodan is depicted as a God of Destruction that does not have the same benevolence Godzilla has, which is shown by leveling cities just by flying over one, and thrashing the military.

    G - W 
  • Gaia's Vengeance:
    • Gareth Edwards stated that Godzilla is a "representation of the wrath of nature."
    Edwards: Godzilla is definitely a representation of the wrath of nature. The theme is man versus nature and Godzilla is certainly the nature side of it. You can't win that fight. Nature's always going to win and that's what the subtext of our movie is about. He's the punishment we deserve.
    • In-universe, Dr. Serizawa believes nature sent Godzilla to restore balance to the world by hunting the M.U.T.O.s.
  • Genius Bruiser: Godzilla is rather crafty for a giant reptile. After seeing how his atomic breath only had a minor effect on the female M.U.T.O., he switched to grabbing her head and firing it down her throat in a "Kiss of Death" until it decapitated her. As for the male M.U.T.O., Godzilla was having difficulty dealing with the male constantly resorting to hit-and-run attacks from the air. So Godzilla suckered the male into attacking him from behind by pretending that he didn't know it was there, then giving him a tail whip that knocked the male out of the air into a skyscraper, impaling it on a protruding beam.
  • Giant Equals Invincible: He shrugs off all bullets, tank rounds, and sea-to-ground missiles. It is confirmed in the movie that he can survive point-blank nuclear explosions in the kiloton range, though they have no idea what megaton-level explosions will do. However, the nuclear initiation that the movie shows targeting him is known to us as the Castle Bravo test, which is famous not only for being one of the first multimegaton tests, but for unfortunately exceeding expectations — the expected 4-8 megaton explosion was roughly 15 megatons. No nuke in the current arsenal is capable of that note .
  • Giant Wall of Watery Doom: He displaces so much water that he kills hundreds of people in massive tsunamis just from rising out of the ocean.
  • Glasgow Grin: He has a "born with it" variation, though it's only really visible when he opens his mouth to roar or use his atomic breath. Its design seems to be based off the similar "smiles" of many real-life reptiles.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: King of the Monsters gives him these when using his Atomic Breath.
  • Godzilla Threshold: He seems to have one of his own - the signature Atomic Breath, which he only uses once in Awakening and three times in the film's climax.
  • Good Is Not Soft: While he does avoid killing humans on most occasions, he isn't against risking lives by damaging property if it means it will help him take down his enemies. For instance, his first appearance in Hawaii causes a tsunami that kills hundreds. And he gives the M.U.T.O.s. themselves no quarter whatsoever — both their inevitable deaths prove brutal.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He is covered in big red scars. This calls to mind the original design philosophy Toho had, in that his skin was supposed to resemble the keloid scars that the survivors of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings developed.
  • Grumpy Old Man: Rather humorously, many viewers have pointed out that Godzilla acts less like a giant reptilian colossus rampaging through the cities of the Earth and more like an annoyed old man. He more or less shambles through the world without much concern for the humans he steps over and constantly displays irritation rather than anger at the people shooting at him with military-grade weapons. This makes a whole lot of sense when you recall that Godzilla is literally eons old in this continuity, having survived well past the Permian Extinction.
  • Heavy Sleeper: If the climax is anything to go by, so much so that when he gets tired and decides to take a nap after defeating the M.U.T.O.s, the military initially assumes him to be dead.
  • Hell Is That Noise:
    • Needless to say, his roar was best described by Gareth Edwards, himself. He said it was, "A roar of nature. A roar of rage."
    • Erik Aadahl refused to reveal how he created the roar — even to Gareth Edwards — so as not to diminish its capacity to incite fear.
  • Heroic Second Wind: Manages to gather enough strength to get back up on his feet after suffering many severe injuries from a terribly long battle and being crushed by a skyscraper.
  • Impossibly Graceful Giant: Played with. He is a lumbering behemoth who causes a lot of damage just by walking through an area, but he is especially graceful in the water, capable of sneaking up on the M.U.T.O.s. just fine, and seems to be trying to weave his way through the cities as much as he can to avoid too much damage unlike the M.U.T.O.s. He's only walking fast to humans because his strides are so long in comparison.
  • Irony: A giant prehistoric monster whose Meaningful Name means "God Incarnate", but does not own the title of God of Destruction, like his Japanese counterparts. That title goes to Rodan.
  • It Can Think: He gives the distinct impression of regarding the protagonist, Ford Brody, at one point when they gaze at each other close-up.
  • It's Personal: He seems to treat his feud with Ghidorah this way. The second trailer ends with them charging towards each other, both equally enraged.
  • The Juggernaut: As per usual, he is nearly indestructible, even surviving a nuclear blast prior to the events of the film. This is also his most heavily built incarnation to date. He's so powerful that Dr. Wates poetically makes him out to be a Physical God.
  • Kaiju: The most famous giant monster of all.
  • Last of His Kind: He is described as the last of a species that lived when the Earth's surface was still being heavily bombarded by radiation.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: The look he gives the male M.U.T.O. before tail-whipping it to death screams this.
  • Made of Iron: He survived being nuked multiple times, and it's implied that this made him stronger. First nuke he took? Castle Bravo, a 15 megaton hydrogen bomb. It did nothing to him. Artillery attacks, tank shells, and bullets, he doesn't even notice. Missiles? A mild nuisance. He even takes a skyscraper collapsing on him and manages to get back up. Only attacks from the M.U.T.O.s put him in any mortal danger. If you know your Godzilla, this is to be expected.
  • Man Bites Man: Uses his mouth and teeth quite frequently when fighting the M.U.T.O.s.
  • Meaningful Name: According to Shin Godzilla, Godzilla (or Gojira) officially means "God incarnate". Considering how he depicted as such by Serizawa and Graham, it makes perfect sense.
  • Mighty Glacier: While he's not as particularly fast as some of his previous incarnations, Godzilla here keeps true to the Big G's tradition of dishing out massive pain. To bring up his fighting style, when faced the female M.U.T.O., which almost matches his size, his first offensive bout seems to focus on solely overpowering it with sheer brute strength and tenacity. Then once he learns enough about his enemy he starts aiming for weaknesses.
  • Mighty Roar: A mighty and glorious one.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Taken to new levels, at least with what is confirmed onscreen. In at least some films, most notably The Return of Godzilla, using nuclear weapons on Godzilla has been suggested but never carried out. In this film, it is part of Godzilla's origin: the military tried nuclear as soon as they became aware of Godzilla's existence, covering up their attempts too kill him as tests known as Operation Castle (Castle Bravo being the best known, and largest, of these tests). Not only did these obviously not kill Godzilla, they appear to have inadvertently caused his mutation and given him his powers, like atomic breath. This new Godzilla might be even harder to kill than previous versions.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: He's not particularly interested in fighting with humans and goes out of his way to not fight them even when they are opening fire on him. Like Gareth said, humans are like ants to him. You don't go out of your way to stomp on every ant you see, do you?
  • No-Sell: For the most part, he simply doesn't even notice when humans are attacking him.
  • Odd Friendship: He seems to form one with Ford, after looking at him and Ford's timely destruction of the M.U.T.O. nest. Godzilla even goes out of his way to save Ford from the female M.U.T.O. afterward.
  • Offhand Backhand: After he catches on to the male M.U.T.O's hit-and-run tactics, he uses his tail to do this.
  • Old Soldier: Has been fighting other kaiju for eons.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Very destructive and tending to take out whole cities in his fights.
  • Physical God: He is described as being like a god compared to the M.U.T.O.s. Fitting, considering his name officially means "God Incarnate''.
    • A mural from the second movie's trailer shows him being outright worshiped by an ancient civilization.
  • Post-Victory Collapse: After Godzilla incinerates the female M.U.T.O's innards and rips her head off, he takes a power nap. The military think he's dead until he wakes up the following morning.
  • Power Limiter: His dorsal spines actually reserve his radioactive energy supply for his immense power.
  • Reconstruction: Various elements of his design are updated to seem more plausible. His feet are rounder like a sauropod's to support his heavy weight, he has gills on the side of his neck to explain how he can live underwater, his armored hide and arms now look crocodilian. In general, he's bulkier, as an animal his size and shape probably would be to support its own weight.
  • Red Baron: The film has a variation on this: after he has killed the M.U.T.O.s, a news channel has the headline "King of the Monsters: Savior of Our City?" This indicates the ambivalent attitude humans have toward his Destructive Saviour status.
  • Sensory Abuse: His roar was made to be very cacophonous and dissonant along with being loud.
  • Shown Their Work: According to this news article, Gareth Edwards and his crew prepared for the monster fights by studying footage of animals fighting, so Godzilla's fighting style is based off those of real-life animals such as bears and komodo dragons.
  • The Silent Bob: Excluding his famous roar, of course. Anyways, he's the most expressive Godzilla to date, displaying a lot of body language, and even makes facial expressions.
  • Sinister Silhouettes: More likely his secondary ominous Dynamic Entry accompanied by an unsettling piano sting playing, with lightning flashing showing himself slowly emerging out of the fog, snarling quietly, and finally letting out his deafening roar preparing to annihilate both MUTOs once and for all.
    • Happens again in Godzilla: King of the Monsters when he shows up in Boston the same way, but instead of looking frightening, it's more built up as him looking more heroic on his way to confront Ghidorah for a rematch.
  • Stealth Hi/Bye: He manages to pulls this off, usually when underwater, though occasionally he uses smoke and debris clouds.
  • Stock Monster Symbolism: The film gives him a Gaia's Vengeance characterization on top of being a radioactive mutation.
  • Stout Strength: He's more heavily built than other versions of the character, but it doesn't make him any less dangerous.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: The massive, radioactive, mutant King of the Monsters, has golden eyes. It also provides some distinct Color Contrast against his charcoal grey hide.
  • Super Not-Drowning Skills: Justified. For the first time, Godzilla has gills on the sides of his neck, explaining how he can live underwater.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: Godzilla tracks the M.U.T.O.s from one side of the Pacific to the other.
  • Tail Slap: How Godzilla kills the male M.U.T.O., coupled with Impaled with Extreme Prejudice, since it was slammed into a skyscraper and got a support beam through its torso.
  • Time Abyss: Godzilla is suggested in the prequel comic to have survived the Permian Extinction and shifted between dormancy and active hunting across 250 million years, appearing at various points throughout human history.
  • Unscrupulous Hero: He doesn't go out of his way to destroy everything in sight, and seems to actively avoid it for most of the movie. Even when humans fire at him or attack him with military-grade weapons, he just shrugs off their attacks and focuses on going for his natural enemy: the M.U.T.O.s. Though, he doesn't avoid it entirely, like at the Golden Gate bridge where he was clearly provoked. The tidal wave in Hawaii is the only time he hurt anyone without a good reason, and even then, it's not clear he realized that was going to happen. note 
  • Unskilled, but Strong: He prefers to use more brute strength and tenacity rather than skill. Due to his large size this is probably his most fitting style as he's not really fast such as the male M.U.T.O.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Not as much as older versions of the monster but when he starts fighting the M.U.T.O's he really starts to let loose by unleashing his primal rage and destructive power to kill his targets.
  • Up to Eleven: The makers of the film promised that this would be the biggest incarnation of Godzilla yet. As this Yahoo! Movies article puts it:
    "Godzilla's always been rather large. But now he's, like, really rather large."
  • Weaksauce Weakness: His arms are very stubby compared to the rest of him. The male M.U.T.O. took advantage of this a couple of times by jumping on his head and stabbing away at him with those long forelegs, with Godzilla having an extremely difficult time dislodging him since he could barely touch the top of his head. They are plenty strong, though, and he uses them to fight the female M.U.T.O.
  • Worm Sign: He creates a massive swell in the water as he swims, with his dorsal spines protruding from the top. Taken Up to Eleven when the act of landfall is preceded by a tsunami.
