    Godzilla Senior 

Godzilla Senior

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/godzilla_senior_by_pyrus_leonidas_d8hfc7p.png

  • Alternate Self: As it turns out, he and the Showa Godzilla are indeed the same Godzilla, with the nail between them being the Futurians taking Senior to the Bering Sea while Showa was left to be mutated alongside his father.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: His "son" Xenilla was this to him. To a lesser extent, same story with his "daughter", Biollante. Seems amended in the afterlife with him directly guiding and aiding Xenilla against Grand King Ghidorah, though for Junior's sake.
  • Backup from Otherworld: His soul manifests with aid from Harmony and all the souls Grand King Ghidorah ever absorbed to help his sons finally destroy Grand King Ghidorah once and for all with a father-sons Spiral Fire Ray.
  • Body Horror: Is noted as being considerably more deformed by his mutation than his son is, because he was mutated while already an adult while Junior grew naturally into his.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Apparently, the reason for his rampage in Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth was that Bagan possessed him.
  • Chaotic Neutral: Didn't care about anyone but himself and his son due to hating just about everything else around him. This meant he did sometimes accidentally save the human race one year, though just by merit of attacking something that had already threatened him; and would then menace them himself the next year.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: His own power caused his body to go into nuclear meltdown.
  • The Dreaded: He was hated and feared by many while he was alive. Notably, he was one of the only beings to legitimately frighten Destroyah.
  • Freudian Excuse: Getting painfully mutated by atomic bombs and constantly getting attacked left him with a hatred of humans.
  • Good Counterpart: Like his father, he's briefly resurrected (though only for a few moments) by the souls of the dead. Only in his case, those souls are the countless innocents formally trapped in King Ghidorah and it's to help his sons destroy the King of Terror once and for all. His Alternate Self as Showa Godzilla serves as this to his Amalgam'Verse self, having learned to forgive humanity and eventually allying alongside them as a kindly protector.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Miki Saegusa and Azusa Aoki eventually revealed that in spite of his anger at the world around him, his greatest desire was to find a companion. That was why he sought out Biollante when she first showed up and why he adopted Godzilla Junior.
  • Love Redeems: Downplayed. Senior was still hostile towards humans after adopting Junior, but Junior's fondness of them caused Senior to soften somewhat.
  • Nominal Hero: He didn't care about anyone except his son. The only reason why he defended Terra from threats was because he was defending his territory or the threats attacked him or his son.
  • Papa Wolf: He loved his adopted son, Godzilla Junior, dearly and would do anything to protect him. Not even death will stop him: with the aid of the souls Junior freed from King Ghidorah and Harmony, he manages to return from beyond the grave just long enough to help his sons destroy the King of Terror once and for all.
  • Pet the Dog: After discovering Kong took care of Junior while he was on Skull Island, he not only left Kong and the Island unharmed but in probably the only time he ever did so, thanked Kong.
  • Posthumous Character: He died in the fic's version of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah about two decades ago.
  • Red Baron: King of the Monsters. Also known as, The Monster of Justice, in the Showa timeline.
  • So Proud of You: His reaction to discovering Junior killed Gaw (the first kaiju his son had ever fought and defeated) is to pat him on the head and back in a rare moment of tenderness from him. It's implied both Junior and Xenilla earned this from him when his soul manifests to help destroy Grand King Ghidorah.
    A warm breeze traveled past Sugarcube Corner, before departing off into the sky as a father smiled upon his sons.
  • Superpower Meltdown: His own power killed him when it grew too great to control.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Junior did help mellow him out a good bit, though he never became what one would call truly nice. He took another post death, and his few appearances as a spirit show him considerably nicer than he was in life. He even does something he'd never done in life and ultimately forgives and accepts Xenilla as his son.

"Beeeee gooooone..."

    Hokmuto 

  • Accidental Hero: Saved the Hawaiian capital from Gaira, but only because he saw Gaira as a threat to his territory and didn't care one way or the other about the humans.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: While not a friend to humanity, he's not an enemy either, and thus isn't part of either major faction. This is why he's kept alive and fed on a 'nature preserve' on the Big Island in Hawaii.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: Gaira was found closing in on the capital of Hawaiian capital on very short notice. With no time to send a mech or for a benevolent kaiju to arrive, the GDF lured him into fighting Gaira. While he didn't manage to kill him, he did hold him long enough for the Big Bad to fairy Gaira away for recruitment and thus save the capital.

  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Her soul encourages Monster X to be happy with Aria Blaze.
  • The Lost Lenore: To Monster X/Kaizer Ghidorah.
  • Made of Iron: She survived falling from a collapsing tower, and after stabbing herself in the chest, remained standing long enough to walk over to Kaizer Ghidorah and hug him.

  • Synchronization: Due to an extremely strong empathy link, her and Monster X's injures reflected on each other.
  • Tainted Veins: A side effect of her augmentations was dark violet veins.
  • Un-person: After the Xilians blamed her for Kaizer Ghidorah razing their planet, they erased her name and records from history.
  • What Beautiful Eyes!: Another side effect was to change the color of her eyes from the normal gray scale to bright purple.
  • You Are Number 6: Like all Xilians, her "name" is just her profession and a number.

Terran Form

  • Cain and Abel: According to Word of God, Belvera exists as their equivalent for Battra. Her reasons for going after humanity are because the last Battra did and she was enraged by his death.
  • Distressed Damsel: In a flashback, the Mutations invaded Infant Island and they were nearly killed before Mothra Lea could get to them, until Xenilla saved them.
  • Lilliputians: In Terran form, they fit in the palm of a hand. Naturally, in Equestria, they become the similar sized Breezies.
  • Mr. Exposition: They are very knowledgeable about magic and help give Twilight Sparkle insight into the Chest of Harmony.
  • Magic Music: Their singing has various effects like summoning Mothra and calming individuals down.
  • Spark Fairy: In their first appearance, they were depicted as this. Twilight Sparkle later finds out it was from the light they generate, when they tone it down enough for her to see their real forms.

    Generation 3 Pinkie Pie 

Generation 3 Pinkie Pie

  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: She's entirely aware of the different generations, the portals, and Discord.
  • Canon Discontinuity: By factor of appearing in a non-canon special. note

  • Hammerspace Hair: She pulls out everything from confetti cannons to balloons to Grocho Marx masks out of her mane.

    Godzilla 1/Ghost Godzilla/Kiryu 

Godzilla 1/Ghost Godzilla/Kiryu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ghost_godzilla_by_pyrus_leonidas_d8fwz8e.png

  • Came Back Strong: The 1954 Godzilla resurrected by the vengeful dead of WWII. Since 1954 Godzilla was considerably weaker than Junior, while Ghost Godzilla could have killed him one on one and was comparable to Grand King Ghidorah if not stronger, he definitely counts. He's then resurrected again, this time as himself, as Kiryu.
  • Composite Character: The original 1954 Godzilla mixed with the GMK and Kiryu saga individuals, along with parts of the scrapped Godzilla vs. Ghost Godzilla script.
  • Cyborg: Is currently Kiryu, with his soul still present.
  • Death by Adaptation: The canon movie has the GMK Godzilla implied to still be alive and regenerating at the bottom of Tokyo Bay. In the Bridge version of events, Godzilla Jr., Anguirus, and Gamera managed to decisively kill him and then rebuilt into Kiryu.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Mixed with Redemption Equals Death, he became this world's Kiryu, and the original Godzilla's spirit within ultimately forgave humanity. According to Word of God, part of this was his grandson and another part was watching people through Kiryu allowed him to finally sympathize with them.
  • Love Redeems: The spirit of the original 1954 Godzilla inside Kiryu ultimately forgave humanity, in part because of his grandson.
  • Posthumous Character: Played with. The original Godzilla was killed with the Oxygen destroyer, then his resurrected Revenant Zombie form was killed by Gamera, Junior, and Anguirus long before the main fic starts, but his existence had big ramifications, as Anguirus and Gamera were both awakened and became Junior's allies in the process of defeating him. He's technically been revived again as Kiryu.
  • Revenant Zombie: Expanded Universe materials refer to him as a revenant, and he certainty fit the definition.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Is only mentioned in the backstory and Expanded Universe materials, but Godzilla and Anguirus wouldn't be allies if without his resurrected form, nor would Gamera have awakened.
  • Virtual Ghost: The spirit of the original Godzilla lives inside Kiryu's systems. However, thanks to his grandson and learning to sympathize with humans, he's forgiven humanity and made a Heel–Face Turn.

    Creation 

Creation

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: It's enormous even by Kaiju standards; it's over 800 feet long.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Cannot understand why the Defenders and the humans fight so hard to protect their planet, and does not believe in The Power of Friendship.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: It is the first Anteverser with an active Healing Factor, and it is very powerful, able to let it recover from being disemboweled or its brain incinerated.
  • It Can Think: It is the first fully sentient Anteverser, and capable of speech.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: It resembles an enormous crocodile, though with odd features like flippers instead of legs and spikes along its back.
  • Pitiful Worms: Calls the Defenders and the humans pests and such.
  • Rasputinian Death: After enduring attacks from Gamera, Zilla, Titanosaurus, Tytanna, and Obsidius, and getting hit with a nuke, it takes getting completely covered with lava to finally kill it.
  • Shock and Awe: It channels electric attacks.
  • Undying Loyalty: Although it is sentient and not a drone like the other Anteversers, it is fully committed to its masters' cause.

    Gojira 

Gojira

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/godzilla_2014_by_pyrus_leonidas_d9xgjrc.png
"Thou hast power, but refuses to use it aggressively. Thou art a predator, but serves to protect rather than control. Thou gives trust, even to those thine call enemy. What a peculiar creature thou art. Reminds us..."

  • Blue and Orange Morality: Always thinks in terms of predator and prey.
  • Breath Weapon: Has the Atomic Breath, but it is weaker than Junior's and tires him out when he uses it.
  • Flowery Elizabethan English: Speaks this way. Amusingly, he thinks the others talk funny.
  • Honor Before Reason: He finds Godzilla accepting outside assistance when he fights in poor taste. Godzilla retorts that there's no such thing as fair or unfair in a fight.
  • Last of His Kind: Eons ago, for the sake of the planet, Bagan back when he was the hero Reijuu wiped out his race in the process of stopping the mass demon invasion/possession of the planet happening with the rest falling in battle with them, leaving him alive to fill the role of an alpha predator.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's physically stronger than Godzilla Junior and his reflexes are great enough to catch Zilla Jr., one of fastest land based Kaiju, even when he is tired.
  • Never Given a Name: Claims he has no name. "Gojira" was something the ancients referred to him as and he tells Godzilla and Zilla that if they want to address him as that, they can.
  • Nominal Hero: He is the Alpha Predator, given the sacred duty of maintaining the balance of nature and and eliminating threats to the planet. He does not care about the planet's inhabitants and while he won't attack them without reason, he won't go out of his way to protect them either.
  • No-Sell: He completely shrugs off everything Godzilla and Zilla throw at him except the Atomic Breath and Nuclear Pulse.
  • Passing the Torch: He passes his title and role to Godzilla Junior after finding him worthy.
  • Red Baron: The Alpha Predator.
  • Royal "We": Instead of "I", "Me", and "My", he uses "We", "Us", and "Our".
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He had been hibernating under the ocean for millions of years.
  • Sensor Character: He is able to detect radiation. This means he can detect radiation-based Kaiju and they cannot sneak up on him.
  • Super Strength: He completely outclasses Godzilla Junior in terms of physical strength. Junior had to use his radiation attacks to beat him.
  • Super Toughness: His hide withstands Godzilla and Zilla's claws and teeth. Zilla manages to knock him down with a tackle, but is left in pain and says it felt like hitting a mountain.
  • Time Abyss: He's millions of years old and knew Reijuu.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Godzilla notes that he has great power, but is not used to fighting beings who approach him in power. His skills may have also decayed due to his long hibernation.
  • We Used to Be Friends: He considered Reijuu a friend, but knows that his current persona Bagan is a threat to the planet.

    Biollante 

Biollante

  • Badass Family: Being one of Godzilla Senior's "children", her family includes not only her father and grandfather, but Xenilla and Godzilla Junior; both of whom consider her their elder sister. She and her brothers are some of the strongest kaiju to ever exist.
  • Barrier Maiden: Of a kind. Her home of New Birth Island is the Truce Zone between the Terra Defenders and Mutations simply because she's there and made it crystal clear their war is not welcome there. Given she's one of the few kaiju on the planet in the same level as her brothers, that declaration carries a lot of weight.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Is completely passive towards humanity and allows her brothers to visit her on New Birth Island...on the condition their war doesn't come with them. She's made it crystal clear that she will step in should that happen, and it's stated those two are the only kaiju who have stepped foot on her island without being booted off.
  • Clones Are People, Too: She is technically a partial clone of Godzilla Senior as well as a vessel for Erika Shiragami's spirit. However she does not consider herself a copy of Senior nor a reincarnated, conscious Erika. Godzilla Junior and Xenilla, sensing the connection to her from Senior's genes, consider her their elder sister.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Not yet seen, but according to Word of God, she could use a partial Meltdown form like her brothers with the same limitations, but likely a different appearance.
  • Green Thumb: Was able to turn New Birth Island from a barren hunk of rock to a fertile, thick jungle singlehandedly in the time between her arrival back on Earth and her brothers arriving on it.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Well, more like less than 1/3 human. She's part Godzilla, part Rose, and her human part comes from Erika.
  • Heroic Neutral: Is undoubtedly benevolent, but wants nothing to do with the war between her brothers and just wants to be left alone on New Birth Island barring visits by her brothers (so long as their war stays off it).
  • Large and in Charge: Is 120 meters tall and one of the few kaiju with as much authority (namely enough to say 'your war isn't welcome here' and everyone listens) as her brothers.
  • LEGO Genetics: Was created by combining Senior's and Erika Shirigami's DNA with a rose.
  • Plant Person: Was created from a rose.
  • Red Baron: The Flora Queen.
  • Team Switzerland: Is neither a Mutation or a Terra Defender: she just wants to be left alone on her island home. Her brothers are allowed to visit, but she makes it clear their war stays off New Birth Island.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Increased in strength while in space, going from comparable to Godzilla Sr. to on par with Junior and Xenilla (who are as strong as Burning Senior).
  • World's Strongest Man: While it was unclear who was actually Terra's strongest kaiju, as all the other contenders are currently on Equus, she's the strongest kaiju on Terra at the moment.

    Princess Sunset Shimmer 

Princess Sunset Shimmer

  • Alternate Universe: In this universe, Sunset was adopted by Princess Celestia, never turned on her, and became an Element of Harmony bearer.
  • Break the Haughty: Her haughtiness and unwillingness to open up almost gets Rodan killed. After she saves and heals him all she can do is beg for forgiveness and act much nicer to him.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Celestia sometimes calls her "her little Snuggly Wuggly".
  • Feed It with Fire: Heat and flame attacks cannot harm her except with their concussive force, and supercharge her magic.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: They were already fighting, but soon as Rodan hit her with a heat beam; she breaks out the royal Canterlot voice in rage.
  • Happily Adopted: By her world's Princess Celestia.
  • Heroic BSoD: She cries and nearly goes catatonic when she recognizes Mircalla, forcing Rodan to carry her to safety.
  • Hero of Another Story: The main heroine of The Shimmerverse.
  • I Work Alone: Due to her pride in her skills and feeling it isn't Rodan's fight, she's reluctant to accept his help.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: Gets into a brawl with Rodan briefly due to mistaking him for a nightmare beast. Granted, Rodan was covered in a black coating so he did look the part.
  • Meaningful Name: Nightmare Moon's forces want to bring about the last shimmer of sunset and cause The Night That Never Ends. How fitting that she opposes them.
  • No Infantile Amnesia: The last time she saw Mircalla was as a newborn foal when she murdered her mother, yet she remembers the event.
  • Playing with Fire: She specializes in flame spells powerful enough to destroy boulders and most creatures of darkness.
  • Super Mode: After absorbing enough heat, she gains a flaming aura and Hot Wings, and her flames become powerful enough to turn rock into lava.
  • When She Smiles: Her genuine smile is so beautiful that it's the only thing Rodan remembers when his memories of his time in the Shimmerverse are erased.
  • You Killed My Father: Mircalla murdered her birth mother. After hearing Mircalla out and learning it was a complete accident, she finds it in her heart to forgive her.

    Countess/Nightmare Mircalla 

Countess Mircalla, later Nightmare Mircalla

  • Accidental Murder: She didn't intentionally kill Sunset Shimmer's mother, rather a combination of factors played out poorly and when Sunset's mother broke free of Mircalla's paralyzing gaze the strain of it all stopped her heart.
  • Alternate Universe: An inhabitant of the aforementioned Shimmerverse.
  • Aristocrats Are Evil: Subverted as she isn't fanatically driven like the others in the Nightmare Army and is serving out of duty. And she walks away from the entire ordeal after sabotaging their plans.
  • Big Bad: For A Shimmer in the Dark.
  • Clingy MacGuffin: After donning Nightmare Moon's armor, she finds that she cannot remove it and is informed only Nightmare Moon herself can remove it. Sunset Shimmer manages to nullify the armor's magic, allowing her to remove it.
  • Due to the Dead: She gives any victim she doesn't turn into a vampire a proper burial, and is disturbed by zombies, believing the dead deserve their rest.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Realizing if she continues her path, many innocents including her coven will die no matter who wins, she turns on Mizu and the Nightmare Army.
  • Just Following Orders: Her main motive for her actions as a villain are a sense of duty and fear of reprisal, rather than actual devotion to Nightmare Moon.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Silver burns her on contact.
  • Legacy Character: Takes on Nightmare Moon's power, basically becoming The Shimmerverse equivalent to Nightmare Rarity.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: She's actually grown disillusioned with Nightmare Moon's cause a long time ago, but serves her to repay a past favor. Also, she knows if she tried to leave the Nightmare Army, the others would kill her.
  • No-Sell: She tanks Sunset Shimmer's fire blasts and Rodan's Uranium Ray without taking any damage.
  • One to Million to One: She can turn into a swarm of bats.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: Sunlight weakens and causes her pain, but not necessarily kills her, has blood-hued cat-like eyes, pointed ears, and described as both eerie and beautiful. Her sunlight vulnerability was cured when Mizu repaired and put Nightmare Moon's armor onto her. She has no control over what happens to those she feeds on, either they die or become a vampire with only a small minority of the latter occurring. She later clarifies that vampires like her are not undead. Given how long she's been alive though, it's implied vampires are either immortal or extremely slow to age.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: She did her best to be discrete when hunting, only attacking lost travelers who were already dying and even helping healthy ones return to civilization, to minimize the chances of search parties being sent into her territory.
  • The Remnant: Mircalla is the last of Nightmare Moon's generals and she's leading a reserve army in some sort of attack.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Her Heel–Face Turn.
  • Step into the Blinding Fight: She can release a mist that blocks out all light.
  • Teleportation: She can create runic circles that teleport whoever steps into them to other locations. She hasn't mastered this, so there can be errors in destination.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Mizu, Bagan's primordial Aspect of Water.

     The Original Gabara 

Gabara 1

"I am nightmares incarnate. I will devour your mind!"

  • Abusive Parent: If he paid his offspring any mind at all, it was as assets to be used as he saw fit. He even tries to possess his own descendant.
  • Adaptational Villainy: The movie Gabara was just like a typical school bully. This guy is as sadistic and murderous as Freddy Krueger.
  • Ancient Evil: He's been terrorizing dreams since about 2000 BC.
  • Astral Projection: How he managed to enter dreams despite being sealed in a chamber underneath Aokigahara.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's an Oni King, and comparable to Junior in terms of power.
  • Berserk Button: He goes completely berserk whenever someone manages to resist his influence and when someone reads his mind.
  • Body Surf: Attempts to possess his descendant Ichiro, but Ichiro manages to turn the tables on him and destroy him while becoming the second, far more benign Gabara.
  • Deader Than Dead: His attempt to possess Ichiro backfired and he was effectively erased from existence.
  • Dream Weaver: He can enter dreams and turn them into nightmares.
  • Emotion Eater: He feeds on fear. When he's fed enough, he becomes powerful enough to battle Godzilla Junior, in the real world.
  • Evil Overlord: His reign was described as being less of a ruler and more a murderous, psychopathic bully.
  • Genius Bruiser: Is noted as having been very knowledgeable for his era, and over the centuries has learned nearly every language in the world. In fact, the entire reason he was not only capable of surviving, but thriving in the post-Toba Extinction era despite being a fae (who had mostly gone extinct due to lack of mana) is studying ancient text and realizing he could gain the mana needed to sustain and power him up from the mana produced by beings during intense fear.
  • Human Mom Nonhuman Dad: Subverted. While he did father some children by human women, oni themselves are a sub-race of humanity, Homo sapien kaibutsu.
  • Karmic Death: First, his physical body is killed by Godzilla Junior, whom he had terrorized as a child. Second, when his disembodied spirit attempts to possess his descendant Ichiro, Ichiro's personality overrides his, effectively erasing him from existence.
  • Moral Myopia: He'll sadistically force his way into the dreams of others and kill them as he feeds on their terror, but goes berserk whenever someone manages to force their way into his mind.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His Red Baron: the Oni King of Aokigahara. You know someone's probably not a pleasant fellow when he's called King of a place infamously known as "the Suicide Forest".
  • Off with His Head!: Having Godzilla bite you in the throat and then fire his beam into the spot continuously while doing so tends to do that.
  • Omniglot: He's learned nearly every language from invading the dreams of people throughout the world.
  • Oni: Not just any Oni, their King.
  • Posthumous Character: He was killed a few years before The Bridge started.
  • Red Baron: Oni King of Aokigahara; Gabara the Ancient.
  • Shock and Awe: While it resembles and behaves like electricity, his blasts are actually weaponized Soul Power.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was imprisoned in sealed in a chamber beneath Aokigahara. However, over time the atrocities of the Pacific War, the paranoia of the Cold War, and the dread and suffering of those that came to his domain to end their lives gradually restored his power until he regained enough to begin reeking havoc in the dream realm again. Eventually, he managed to turn an attempt to banish his astral form around to free himself and finally escape his prison.
  • Super Speed: At 3 meters tall, he can sprint at about 80 kmph. At Kaiju size, he can sprint at about 320 kmph.
  • Super Strength: At 3 meters tall, he can crush rocks, bend metal, and overpower dozens of men. At Kaiju size, he's an even match for Godzilla Junior.
  • Super Toughness: His 3 meter tall form can resist blades and bullets. His Kaiju form can shrug off Godzilla Junior's attacks.
  • This Cannot Be!: His reaction when Ichiro overpowered him and tore his power away from him.
    Gabara: You… you can’t do this! You are only a child! I AM FAR MORE POWERFUL THAN YOU!
  • Villainous Breakdown: He completely loses it when Ichiro turns the tables on him.
  • Villainous Legacy: He has many descendants, and the modern Gabara is the result of his attempt to possess Ichiro.
  • Youkai: He's an altered oni.
  • Your Mind Makes It Real: Injuries and deaths he inflicts in dreams reflect in reality.

    King Kong 
  • Aloof Ally: Isn't a Terra Defender, but is willing to help them against the mutations so long as he's allowed to remain on his home island in peace.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He is normally a Gentle Giant, but the moment you enrage him...
  • Big Damn Heroes: Shows up to rescue a toddler Godzilla, who found his way to Skull Island and some natives from a Skullcrawler.
  • Gentle Giant: Has his Monsterverse personality, which means he doesn't attack those who don't enrage him, including the humans on his home island and Godzilla Junior when he found his way to the island as a toddler. Granted, if you do manage to enrage him, .
  • Jawbreaker: Performs his signature one against the Skullcrawler attacking Junior while saving him.
  • Killer Gorilla: Averted. As long as you leave him be and don't threaten his island home, he'll leave you be or even look out for you.
    • And even if he were a killer gorilla, this would also be subverted since he's actually a descendant of Ardipithicus, AKA one of humanity's ancestors.
  • Mentor Archetype: Indirectly and directly taught Godzilla Junior most of what he knew of close combat.
  • Primal Chest-Pound: He does his signature chest-pounding to assert his dominance, followed by a Mighty Roar.
  • Stealth Mentor: A partially unintentional one to a young Godzilla Junior, at least at first. Once he caught on to the little dinosaur following him around, he started showing off on purpose to demonstrate. Junior even refers to him as "Sensei".

    Gaw 
  • Adaptational Badass: The original Gaw's fully grown size is as big as a normal T. rex. This one is still nowhere near fully grown and already 35 meters tall. Her max size according to Word of God is in the 100 meter range.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: Kills a large Skullcrawler (though not as large as Ramarak was).
  • Ax-Crazy: Is noted as being even more viscous than the Skullcrawlers.
  • Canon Immigrant: From the King Kong novel series starting with "Kong: King of Skull Island".
  • Feathered Fiend: Though not to the extent of her fellow dromaeosaurids since she's mostly scaly with her feathers being restricted to on her chin, back of the head, arms, and tail.
  • Jawbreaker: How Junior kills her.
  • Mutant: She's an abnormally large and powerful Death Runner.
  • Posthumous Character: Was killed by Godzilla Junior between Xenilla's first appearance and Senior's death.
  • Raptor Attack: She is a giant raptor, or 'Death Runner'.
  • Starter Villain: For Junior, being the first kaiju he ever actually battled on his own when he was still very young and the first one he ever defeated on his own.

    Ultraman Belial 

Ultraman Belial

"The galaxy isn’t filled with heroes, only fools and monsters."

  • The Ace: Was this of the Ultra race before his lust for power turned him down a dark path. He's still very much this trope despite his fall, managing to nearly kill Monster X, and might actually have succeeded if it weren't for Ultrawoman Corona.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Openly refers to himself as a monster, though justified as his worldview is that there are only monsters and fools that refuse to be monsters.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He can't comprehend why his species fights for good instead of only their own benefit.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Monster X. They both started as normal men given incredible power and grown to kaiju size and were some of the strongest of their races. But whereas X kept his morals, even when forced to act as a living weapon by his people; Belial willingly turned on his race and sought power just for the sake of it.
  • Fallen Hero: A former Ultra hero before falling to evil due to his power lust.
  • A God Am I: Declares that the Ultra race should have ruled over all the lesser races as gods. Since they refuse, he will be the god.
  • No-Sell: Completely shrugs off X's Gravity Beams due to having great beam resistance even by Ultra standards.
  • The Paragon Always Rebels: Is described as the best and brightest of the Ultras before turning evil.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Naturally.
  • Rogues-Gallery Transplant: Arc villain for the Ultraman franchise in the source material. Here, while he does fight other Ultra, he's faced off against Monster X.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was imprisoned by Ultraman King long ago, but escaped a hundred years ago. He's imprisoned again after being defeated by Corona and Monster X.
  • Swiss Army Weapon: The Giga Nizer Staff functions as both a staff, club, and powerful energy cannon.

    Ultrawoman Corona 

Ultrawoman Corona

  • All-Loving Hero: Despite how cruel the race had become lately, she still tries to protect the Xilians from Belial.
  • Always Someone Better: Corona is respectably powerful for an ultra, but unfortunately Belial is much stronger, armed, and far more experienced.
  • Bioluminescence Is Cool: Her blood equivalent looks like liquid light.
  • The Cape: Being an Ultra, this is to be expected. She even shows compassion to the Xilians and actively tries to save their lives despite how wicked their race had become recently.
  • Female Angel, Male Demon: She's a heroine and is introduced alongside the very vile Belial. Furthering the comparison she emits jets of light from her back during an attack that look like wings.
  • Fusion Dance: Power booster variety. Unwillingly so, when her dying brother Ultraman Stratos gave her all his remaining power. It bolstered her abilities and gave her blue accents on her red body.
  • Healing Shiv: Her energy blasts injure evildoers, but heal the good. The fact they heal Monster X is significant.
  • It's Personal: Belial's murder of her brother, Ultraman Stratos, drives her to attack him alone before back-up can arrive.
  • Power Gives You Wings: Concentrating all her power into a final blast causes jets of light resembling wings to shoot out of her back. She could already fly though.
  • Red Is Heroic / Blue Is Heroic: Originally a Red Ultra, she gained blue accents after the power transfer from her dying blue brother.
  • Redemption Rejection: Tries to free Monster X from enslavement under the Xilians after realizing he's a good soul deep down, even breaking into Asteroid Gorath to talk to him; but he smacks her hand away and rejects the offer out of loyalty.
  • Taking the Bullet: Took a energy cannon blast through the gut to keep it from hurting a crowd of Xilians.

     The Spinosaurus AKA "Snoke" 

Snoke

  • Adaptational Heroism: In the films, the Spinosaurus was a psychopathic and supernaturally persistent abomination of science, quite possibly being the first Bio-weapon created before the Indominus Rex by Hoskins and Wu for the business of war-profiteering and spite. Here, he was created to keep the Tyrannosaur population in check solely by Wu, nevermind the fact he is considerably less psychopathic and seems to pay no attention to humans who don't intrude on his territory with hostile intent. That being said, if they break that rule, he won't hesitate to kill them, much like he did with Dieter Stark in 1997.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: His sail, snout shape, and possibly posture are all different from the real Spinosaurus; but this is justified as he isn't a pure Spinosaurus, but a splice made by Dr. Wu with Spinosaurus just being the template.
  • Big Good: Least as good as a normal animal can get, Henry Wu designed him to balance the ecosystem on Isla Sorna to keep the T.rex population from causing a population crash, nevermind the fact that he kills the Red Death in the Lost World RPG and makes sure they don't destroy the island's ecosystem.
  • Genius Bruiser: While not sapient, raven genes boosted his intelligence above what one would expect for a dinosaur. This makes him Strong and Skilled and able to focus on disabling a foe or targeting a weak spot to win a fight.
  • In-Series Nickname: He's the Spinosaurus from Jurassic Park III, christened as "Snoke" by the RPG players, though he doesn't respond to the name.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: He's a genetic hybrid of many different animals, with Spinosaurus as the basis. Additional genes came from various sources, such as theSuchomimus and Allosaurus for stronger arms, saltwater crocodiles to give him a stronger bite force, and ravens for increased intelligence. Evidently, he has enough genetic similarity with Suchomimus that he had hybrid offspring with a female of that species dubbed Castiel.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Like most of the dinosaurs on Isla Sorna, he's just a semi-normal, albeit intelligent animal who reacts to intruders. If one human doesn't agitate him, he just ignores them.
  • Red Baron: Is dubbed the "Emperor of Sorna" by his creator, Dr. Wu.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Was partly made from a more obscure spinosaurid, known as Suchomimus.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: A Spinosaurus, with a bit of Allosaurus DNA in him.
  • Strong and Skilled: What allowed him to become the apex predator of Isla Sorna, being larger than any normalTyrannosaurus as well as having more weapons and intelligence.
  • Wolverine Claws: He has three enlarged talons on each arm, with the biggest on the thumb due to genes from the base Spinosaurus as well as Allosaurus and Suchomimus.

     The Ultimasaurus AKA "Ulti Zera" or "The Red Death" 

The Red Death

  • True Final Boss: It certainly fills this role in the RPG, as it's dubbed the ultimate biological weapon, not to mention it being designed for waging war if its designs were to be sold to the military.
  • I Have Many Names: It's described by Bill Stewarts as "Red Death", while some flavor text calls it Ulti Zera. However, like Snoke, it doesn't respond to either nickname, instead just ignoring the party's dubbing while it's on screen.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: It's finally killed by Snoke ramming his clawed arm through an already opened wound in his chest with enough force the claws burst out the hybrid's back.
  • It Is Dehumanising: Since it's the equivalent of Bagan in the Lost World RPG, it would be appropriate the hybrid was given no gender.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: The Red Death has the traits of multiple animals: Its main genetic template is the Tyrannosaurus rex, while some of the other traits mentioned include the horns of Triceratops, the raptor claw of a Deinonychus and the scutes of an Ankylosaurus.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: It's never fought a battle in its life, as it has been stuck in a giant paddock since his creation in 1993. This doesn't hinder it at all in its first and last battle, though, and nearly usurps Snoke's rule because of this.

     Godzilla Earth 

Godzilla Earth

  • Can't Catch Up:
    • Initially outclassing all of the four heroic Godzilla as well as all the native kaiju on its version of Terra. The tables turn when the Leviathan begins reaching its full power and effortlessly tanks everything Godzilla Earth can throw at it.
    • According to Word of God, Godzilla Jr. and Zilla Jr. would eventually inflict this trope themselves if they were to fight Earth again: Earth fought them when they were much weaker and inexperienced than they are now. If a rematch were to happen now, the outcome would likely be entirely different.
  • Evil Counterpart: To both the Showa Godzilla and Godzilla Junior. Unlike the Showa Godzilla, who started in conflict with humanity and learned to forgive and protect them, Godzilla Earth just ramped up its destructive tendencies and destroyed the old world. While Godzilla Junior is consistently conscious of others and upholds his morals on their behalf, Godzilla Earth completely lacks morals entirely and considers the concerns of anything but itself meaningless.
  • Hero Killer: It kills Zilla Junior, Godzilla Junior, Gojira, and Showa Godzilla one by one. At least until Godzilla Junior's body absorbs the fallen's energies and becomes the Leviathan.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: Genderless and monstrous to the core, so it's always referred to as this.
  • Not So Different: Showa directly compares it to his Ghidorah, and it's easy to see why. Like Ghidorah, Earth views itself as above everything else and thus entitled to do whatever he pleases, and was largely motivated for wiping out all life that isn't him simply because he could. His 'affection' for Filius even seems closer to Ghidorah's relationship with Desghidorah than Senior and Showa's to their sons.
  • Papa Wolf: Played With. He went on a rampage when his son was killed, but unlike Senior seems to see this more as an affront to himself than paternal rage. Notably, Showa managing to badly wound him with his last attack actually makes him much angrier than when Filius died.
  • Übermensch: Deconstructed, as detachment and disinterest in any life but its own lead to it killing off all the other kaiju and billions of humans for no other reason than that it could.

     Haruo Sakaki 

Haruo Sakaki

  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: After breaking down and realizing what he's done, he pleads with the Leviathan to do better and save the Aratrum.
  • Heel Realization: Maina throws it in his face the deaths of his troops, disruption of Houtua way of life, Godzilla Earth's wrath, and now the Leviathan's rampage are technically all his fault and Haruo finds himself agreeing.
  • Manly Tears: Justifiably breaks down crying after he's forced to gun down Metphies and him realizing his quest for revenge was all for nothing, only resulting in misery for everyone involved.
  • Not So Different: Killing someone's innocent family member, driving them into a rage that resulted in the deaths of numerous people in a single minded pursuit that puts all concerns for others aside. Haruo realizes this describes both himself and Godzilla Earth caught in a cycle of revenge.
  • Vengeance Feels Empty: Seeing Leviathan killing Godzilla Earth ultimately results in this and helps cause his Heel Realization.

     The Leviathan 

The Leviathan

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leviathan_by_pyrus_leonidas_dcqrr7q_250t.png

  • All Your Powers Combined: It is formed from the essences of Zilla Junior, Showa Godzilla, and Gojira flowing into Godzilla Junior's corpse and reviving it. It has many of their bodies' features and techniques.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Is it a previously existing God of Destruction incarnating through the slain heroic Godzilla? A dark super form for Godzilla Junior? The souls of those slain by Godzilla Earth reviving GMK style to take their revenge? The special never clarifies.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Retractable blades erupting from the top of its wrist with energized edges.
  • Giant Flyer: Via a combination of Shin Godzilla-like back beams and Showa Godzilla's propulsion breath out said dorsal vents.
  • One-Hit Kill: While not used within the special itself, it possesses an ability called "Hakai" that can instantly disintegrate its opponent with a single touch. According to Tarbtano, this is how Anime!Ghidorah meets its end.
  • No-Sell: Eventually its power skyrockets to such an extent nothing Godzilla Earth or potentially Anime King Ghidorah can do even phases it.
  • Red Baron: The God of Destruction.

     Io Shinoda 

Io Shinoda

  • Childhood Friends: Was Godzilla Junior's first friend as he was her's, having been children when they met at Kyoto's Biotechnic's institute.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Her father, Yugi Shinoda, is human. Her mother Asuka was a Mysterian Xilian.
  • Human Mom, Non-Human Dad: Inverted, it was her mother that was a Mysterian.
  • Invisibility Cloak: Of sorts. She can psychically project an image of a wall behind her in front of herself within the mind of someone, creating this effect.
  • Interspecies Friendship: She's a Mysterian-Human hybrid and her first friend was Godzilla Junior.
  • Missing Mom: It's heavily implied her mother, Asuka Shinoda, died in childbirth or soon after.

    Berserek 

Berserek

  • Adaptational Origin Connection: Its creators seem to have some relationship to the Simians whereas in the anime they were simply Expys of them. Also rather than being constructed to fight Godzilla Earth, Berserek is an rampaging experimental weapon that took on Gojira's form to become the apex life form. The irony being the Nebulans at the point they fight it haven't even met Godzilla Jr. yet.
  • Composite Character: Of the Lost Project Berserek and Anime Mechagodzilla.
  • Evil Is Bigger: It quickly grows into a 300 meter tall Mechagodzilla.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Arrives on the Nebulans' homeworld and rampages against them, then Gigan steps up to fight him.
  • The Assimilator: Can assimilate technology into itself to increase in size and power. It can also assimilate organic creatures in some capacity.
