New story, same old friend.

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”

Godzilla Adventure is an as-of-this-writing-WIP Adaptation Distillation of Godzilla characters and storylines into, in the artist/author's own words, "a stab at feeling like a modern teen's cartoon". It features unique designs for each Kaiju; some more drastic redesigns than others, and aims to provide a steadily evolving overarching plot through the bios provided in each entry. The author has stated that he is angling for a feeling akin to a modern cartoon aimed at a teenage audience.

It also has a Tumblr blog by the creator here, created in celebration of Kaijune. It was updated daily with the preexisting kaiju all throughout, after which updates continue being daily until it caught up with the dA page. Since then they are updated with new designs and story elements simultaneously.

Unfortunately, Robbie Da Boo has now deleted his DA account, meaning that this story is no longer on DA, but his Tumblr is still up: https://godzillaadventureofficial.tumblr.com/archive

Tropes found in GA include:

  • A Day in the Limelight: Zilla gets this in Clover’s entry, wherein, he alone has to take down the monster.
  • Beam-O-War: Orochi does this with both Gamera and the entire main cast. He wins the first one, and loses the second.
  • Big Damn Heroes: On multiple occasions. First Mothra gets one, then Rodan, and then Jet Jaguar. It seems to be the creator's preferred way of introducing new kaiju.
    • Mothra herself is prone to this in her daily life, apparently preventing several plane crashes and saving people from sinking ships.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: Well, more like stalemate. Anguirus and Godzilla meet this way and leave as allies.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Godzilla kills King Ghidorah by literally ripping his damn heart out.
  • Giant Equals Invincible: Somewhat downplayed; the author describes only Godzilla and King Ghidorah as being nigh-invulnerable; the rest are simply said to have immense durability. Though they're still effectively immune to conventional weaponry, apparently.

  • Giant Flyer: So far, we have Mothra, Rodan, Gigan, Jet Jaguar, and King Ghidorah as these.
  • God Is Good: Mothra and, to an extent, Godzilla. Mothra is described as being 'overtly heroic' and seeking any opportunity to save people, whilst Godzilla doesn't go on active rampages and simply wants humans to leave him be, though he will defend us from otherworldly threats as part of defending Earth.
  • Hook Hand: Gigan has two, as usual.
  • Humongous Mecha: MechaGodzilla, Jet Jaguar and, assumedly, King Ghidorah's Moguera drones.
  • Kaiju: Gotta really ask yourself, why would this trope not be here.
  • Ominous Floating Spaceship: King Ghidorah's spaceship, when it arrives on Earth.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: All of the kaiju can potentially be this. Special mention goes to Gigan and Megalon, who literally start leveling New York as soon as they arrive.
