Fanfic / Godzilla Goes to Hell... Again

Go To

Godzilla Goes to Hell...Again is a crossover between Hazbin Hotel, Helluva Boss, and, of course, Godzilla, as well as a few other kaiju franchises. It is written by ZettonLives and the story can be read here.

Taking place right after the events of Godzilla in Hell, the king of the monsters suddenly finds himself shrunk down to a still intimidating height and in a much more chaotic version of the infernal realm. Despite his shining disposition, he finds himself working at the hotel, but his presence and sheer power is bound to get him involved in a number of moments that'll rock Hell to the core.


Not only that, but other kaiju had begun to appear, each with their own agendas. Chief among them being Gigan, who throws his hat in with I.M.P as they're in an assignment that involves killing both Godzilla and Alastor...

WARNING: UNMARKED SPOILERS! Needs Wiki Magic Love as well.

This fic provides the following tropes:

  • The Ace: Gigan, to the point where Blitzo decides to regulate him into just doing only the most dangerous of jobs.
  • Affably Evil: Aside from Alastor (to a degree,) Monster X is unfailingly polite and could hardly be seen as a villain as it is, due to his true nature. Gigan is a straighter example. A great pal around the workplace (just ask Moxxie, Millie, and eventually Loona) and a doting adoptive father, but still a killer with a body count that includes CIVILIZATIONS.
  • All the Other Reindeer:
    • Monster X's childhood was this, as he was born with his hideous looks that, even to the freakish X's, were considered abominable. Not helping was the fact that he lacked shapeshifting powers to fix this. Still, he fought for them to gain their approval and eventually became who he is now.
    • Advertisement:
    • The Albino Gyaos, Ariel, is stated to be a freak among her own ravenous kind, but she also keeps fighting for them on the basis of family. Not helping is when she reveals that they tried to EAT her at points.
    • Gigan was born a mutant on his home-planet, representative of the Space Dinosaurs that came before him. While his kind accepted him on the basis of image, he never really was one of them, considering he didn't share their extreme belief system. And then it got WAY worse...
  • Amusement Park of Doom: Carnage Land, which endorses violence and chaos in its rides. Gigan, Loona, and the Dorats actually have one hell of a fun time there, as they cause their own brand of mayhem.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Angel Dust loses his right arms to Ariel's cutter beam. For some reason, the wound never heals (or it might, but slowly).
  • Advertisement:
  • Ascended Meme: From the looks of it, Redman keeps his interpretation as a terrifying killer of kaiju.
  • Atrocious Alias: Suffice to say, Godzilla is NOT fond of the name Gigantis.
  • Aw Look They Really Do Love Eachother: Several moments between Husk and Angel Dust, right down to them having sex in the Valentines Day chapter and Husk having to admit that it was awesome sex.
  • Back from the Dead: Monster X, after being destroyed at the end of the Final Wars, revived when one of his heads regenerated back into a new body. Gigan's case is unexplained, though it's possible he was just rebuilt.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Charlie, at the first chapter, proclaims that, if everybody dreams a little harder, the next chance for her hotel's success will come rushing their way. Cue Godzilla's beam going right through the place and missing her by a hair. Even Alastor shouts "Wish granted!" in response.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me:
    • This is Godzilla's main reason for being attracted to Naamah, as, unlike the others, she truly cares for his well-being. He puts this in contrast with Charlie, whom, despite being nice to him as well and on good terms with him, is pushing the idea of redemption on him.
    • Likewise, this is the case for Ariel's relationship with Tom Trench.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: It seems that Monster X and Cherri would start out like this, but they quickly bond over their ambition. The truest example would be Angel Dust and Husk (though it's more belligerent on Husk's side).
  • Big Eater: The Gyaos, to terrifying degrees. A straighter and tame example comes out of Ariel, the Albino Gyaos that finds that she like Tom Trench's abysmal cooking.
  • Birds of a Feather: Megalon and Niffty. A bit with Monster X and Cherri Bomb as well, due to their hot-blooded nature. Ariel and Tom Trench also bond over being unappreciated, with the pun coming in full force considering Ariel's a Gyaos.
  • Brought Down to Badass: All of the kaiju might not be humongous anymore, but they kept their powers and strengths.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Those demons at the start had NO idea what they were going up against when they decided to antagonize Godzilla.
  • Canon Welding: There's an attempt to weld many different canons in the Godzilla timeline, including all three eras. The Gamera franchise is relegated to another universe, as well as the world of Hazbin. The 'Godzilla in Hell' comic is also taken as canon, explaining why Godzilla's Earth is a wasteland.
  • Catapult Nightmare: How Godzilla woke up in Hell. True, there's no nightmare, but the effect is here, complete with him sweating.
  • Character Tics: Naamah tends to hold onto her chubby tail when nervous.
  • The Chew Toy: So far, Angel Dust has had his fair share of abuse, culminating in Chapter 9 by getting his arms on one side blasted off by the Albino Gyaos!
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The kaiju often dish these out, especially Godzilla, but they've been on the receiving end.
    • Just ask Godzilla when he was instantly beaten by Alastor without any effort.
    • Giant Gyaos being blasted away by the Toaster mech in Chapter 9.
    • To say nothing of the BRUTAL beatdown Redman gives Moxxie in Chapter 10...
  • Dark and Troubled Past:
    • Apparently, the Final Wars did NOT end well for Godzilla, explaining his jaded attitude, but it hasn't been fully revealed yet.
    • Monster X and Gigan are straighter examples. Both grew up ostracized for their looks and behaviors, but Gigan had it CONSIDERABLY worse.
    • Even Naamah isn't safe from this, having grown up mostly unloved, having to work in servitude, and selling her soul to Lucifer just to have a child, which involved the deaths of a nursery AT HER OWN FLAMES. Needless to say, it didn't pan out well.
  • The Dreaded: Godzilla, both in and out of Hell.
  • Deader Than Dead: Obviously, angelic weapons can kill demons for good, but so can Godzilla's atomic breath, surprising many and turning him into an icon of fear.
  • Deal with the Devil: Those who do this with Lucifer end up as soulless and miserable husks that Naamah happens to be a part of. Naturally, the devil's a bit of a knob about it.
  • Destructive Savior: Godzilla, upon arriving in Hell, saves Naamah from being raped...and razes a good portion of Pentagram City, as well as killing SCORES of demons.
  • Deus ex Machina: When the Giant Gyaos and the Albino Gyaos are looming over the defeated Hazbin crew during their invasion, the toaster made earlier suddenly becomes a giant robot and defeats them soundly. Even Megalon comments on this.
  • Determinator: Godzilla's already one, but so is Monster X and even the Albino Gyaos proves to a sense of bravery. Charlie's this in her own way, as she's still convinced she can redeem the lost souls.
  • The Ditz: Aside from Millie and a few other characters from Hell, there's also Megalon and Kevin.
  • Dynamic Entry: Several kaiju are fans of this, especially Monster X, right down to using a similar move like when he smashed into Earth in the form of the meteor Gorath.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Godzilla's comes in the first and second chapters, by showing his savage and even caring side (as when he took issue with how Naamah was targeted).
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones:
    • Gigan truly does care for his allies, girlfriend, and especially his Dorats. Even more so, he loved his little sister before she was killed by his people, leading him to destroy his whole planet.
    • This applies to pretty much every sinister kaiju as well, including Monster X and Ariel.
  • Everyone Can See It: Godzilla and Naamah, with Angel even demanding that they kiss already in Chapter 11.
  • From Bad to Worse: Turns out, a 'SECOND' Annual Purge has been allowed by Lucifer in Hell, only it has demons killing each-other en masse with leftover angel weapons! Then, Godzilla shows up...
  • Happily Adopted: The Dorats all accept Gigan readily as their father, as well as Loona as their mother. However, only Kevin fails to see why that last bit isn't a good idea, but they do grow on each-other.
  • Happily Married: Moxxie and Millie, natch.
  • Hate at First Sight: Godzilla against Alastor and, to a lesser extent, Angel Dust.
  • Head-Turning Beauty: Naamah keeps her rather suggestive outfit on throughout the fic, leading to this. Apparently, she considers it her 'formal wear'.
  • Here We Go Again!: At the start of the fanfic, no less! Godzilla, upon seeing what he's getting into, is annoyed that he's probably still stuck in Hell. Not HIS Hell, mind you...
  • Hot-Blooded: Monster X, as part of his Large Ham tendencies. It's part of what endears him to Cherri Bomb so much.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Godzilla shares this dynamic with Naamah, who's quite short compared to his co-stars, even after they've been scaled down.
  • Fun with Acronyms:
    • Aside from I.M.P (Immediate Murder Professionals), there's also an alliance of major Godzilla-related alien races known as E.V.I.L (Expansive Vibrant Interstellar Legion). Both leave little to the imagination, somewhat.
    • There's also M.O.G.U.E.R.A, but that's also a canon example.
  • Good People Have Good Sex: Inverted. Gigan and Loona aren't really good per say, but the sex they have is still amazing to them. It helps Gigan is Affably Evil.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Vaggie, of course, whom utters these when really emotional.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: It's heavily implied Blitzo is becoming one of these against Gigan, given how chummy he makes everyone feel around him.
  • I Always Wanted to Say That: Alastor calling Charlie's limo the Hazbin-mobile.
  • I Have No Son!: Loona's very hesitant to be the adoptive mom of the Dorats, but she seems to be coming around after Gigan lays into her about her treatment of them. Confirmed during Chapter 10.
  • Idiosyncratic Episode Naming: Each chapter is named after the song(s) that play in it. A creative example is calling one chapter "The Only Devil Trigger I Know for Real", as both songs play in it. The only unique example is the first chapter, which is songless and the title is a Shout-Out to Dawn of the Dead. There's also the eighth chapter, which is a custom title due to no songs, and the Christmas Chapter, which is based on the 12 Days of Christmas.
  • Immortality Seeker: Gigan's true goal is to never go offline again, referencing just how many times he's died in the Godzilla continuity, which might explain his belief that there's no afterlife, despite BEING IN LITERAL HELL.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: During Godzilla's first rampage, a demon rams an angelic weapon through his body that actually manages to stun him...for a while.
  • Impossible Task: I.M.P's main goal in the fanfic is to kill Godzilla and Alastor, on the behest of a mysterious client named J.J. Naturally, they know they need all the resources they can find to do this, including finding bits of Destroyah.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl:
    • Naamah, who's outfit is QUITE suggestive, considering her lower wear is literally a thong throughout. She considers her arousing clothing her 'formal wear' to boot. Bold, coming from such a normally meek creature.
    • Ariel could count, considering she has no clothes to start off and even states as much while in the shower with Tom Trench.
  • Interspecies Romance: All over the damn place. Among those ships are Godzilla and Naamah, Gigan and Loona, Megalon and Niffty, and so on. Basically, the kaiju are being shipped with humans that have become demons and other hellish beings.
  • Keet: Megalon. Oh, so much.
  • Kind Hearted Simpleton: Megalon just wants to see people smile, but he was forced by his people to attack the surface world, explaining his rampage in his movie.
  • Large Ham: Monster X rivals Sir Pentious in this regard. Seriously, when he's not being insightful or frightening, he's shouting platitudes about strength at the top of his lungs.
  • Might Makes Right: Monster X is fully convinced that all he needs is strength, though it's an odd example, as he considers others doing impossible tasks (like Charlie with her goals) as an example of strength. Yet he still is looking for 'something beyond strength', implying that he might grow out of this.
  • Mighty Roar: Godzilla's roar, obviously. It's enough to stop a bunch of demons in their tracks because it's just that damn strong!
  • Morality Pet: Naamah to Godzilla, who brings out his better impulses because of her genuinely kind nature. It's implied Mothra was this to him at some point, as well as something more.
  • Mythology Gag: A whole bunch relating to Godzilla and his ilk!
    • In Chapter 4, the press dubs Godzilla as Gigantis.
    • The three Dorats are named Ichi, Ni, and Kevin.
    • The first song used Brain Stew by Green Day. Specifically, the version made for the 1998 remake of Godzilla. They even have the roars, presumingly replaced by the Millennium incarnations roars now.
    • In Chapter 9, while carrying Naamah, he actually uses his atomic breath to fly over to where she wants to go. Heck, local demons call it "Something you don't see everyday", which is what the scene was called in the Scene Selection for one of the DVD releases.
    • Chapter 10 explains that Gigan retained his Showa appearance early in his life until he was killed by Zone Fighter and then brought back as his Millennium incarnation. He also reveals that he has a love of samurai films, which is a clear reference to his more heroic Godzilla Island incarnation.
  • Named by the Adaptation: The Albino Gyaos that came from the Gamera 4 fan-film is named Ariel here, after the main character of the Little Mermaid.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: Godzilla's supposed to be a receptionist at the Hazbin tell us that it sounds like a good idea!
  • No-Sell: Godzilla and Monster X are fans of this trope, tanking attacks to the surprise of their opponents.
  • Noble Demon: Monster X has a sense of honor to him, as he doesn't like it when others intervene in a battle and he is full of compliments towards his opponents. He also is capable of kindness, as Charlie found out when he met her.
  • The Nothing After Death: Gigan, seemingly, is convinced of this, furthering his desire for immortality. Given that he's mostly a cyborg...
  • Opposites Attract: Seems to be a running theme with some of the couples. While Naamah is sweet and kind, Godzilla is surely and rough around the edges. Downplayed for the others, but it's there (professional Gigan with apathetic Loona, chaotic Cherri Bomb with collected but still hot-blooded Monster X, etc.).
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Naamah isn't a demon. She's a Drake, which is a subspecies of dragon that's more humanoid and, based on descriptions and pictures, resembles a Kobloid.
  • Outside-Context Problem: Godzilla and the rest of the kaiju hail from an entirely different universe (the Toho one, specifically). An Outside-OUTSIDE context problem comes in the form of the Gyaos (also from another universe) and Redman (possibly).
  • Papa Wolf: Although he still doesn't of himself as father material, Gigan is extremely doting on the Dorats, showing that he cares about them beyond his plans. Could also be a pun, as he's courting Loona. Lampshaded in Chapter 10 with this exact trope. He also reveals he's like that due to prior experience with his little sister.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Naamah, who's strong enough to lift Godzilla effortlessly. It's one the things that attracts him to her.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: Monster X.
  • Psycho for Hire: Gigan, of course, but he's actually a bit more professional and sane. He just enjoys his job as much as the other I.M.P members.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: When Godzilla sees a bunch of demons attempt do this to Naamah when he arrives, they instantly gain his ire. Then they attempt to fight him...
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Godzilla, the King of the monsters and with a body count in the has a teddy bear named Chester that he keeps with him a lot. Given that it was a gift from Naamah...
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Cherri Bomb and Monster X, respectively, though X is prone to being a little red once in a while.
  • Security Blanket: Chester, a teddy bear Naamah made for Godzilla, is shaping up to be this for him.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Husk still remembers his time in the Vietnam War. Needless to say, his drinking habit seems a lot more understandable as he laments about it to Godzilla.
  • Ship Tease: As of now, Monster X and Cherri Bomb have this, as well as Husk and Angel Dust. The latter two even kissed in the Christmas chapter. Godzilla and Naamah also have a great deal of this. Tom Trench and Ariel, as well as Pentious and MOGUERA, also engage in this.
  • Shower of Love: At first, Niffty's just helping Megalon with cleaning himself, given that he lacks hands to put soap on himself. It turns into this when he gets an erection and she does a handjob to calm it down, leading to them going steady.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss:
    • Gigan and Loona. Granted, they seem to get along around the middle. Then Gigan goes nuclear on her for her treatment of the Dorats. Then it swerves back into this. Things do seem to be getting better, though, to the point where she's accepted him as her boyfriend.
    • A downplayed and one-sided example was Niffty and Megalon. She found his uncleanliness unpleasant and the fact that she can't clean him at first leads to her disliking him. Not to mention the messes he makes. When he opens up about his past, his desire to make people smile, and the fact that it's just that he hasn't taken a shower in forever due to running away from his kingdom, they see eye-to-eye and become best buddies and even graduate to a couple!
  • Song Fic: It wouldn't be crossing over with Hazbin Hotel if it weren't this. Even the other kaiju get in on the singing!
  • The Soulless: Turns out, Naamah and a bunch of others she's been helping hide away from Hell exist, as they sold their souls to Lucifer and this is where it got them. They live in a perpetual state of misery and, even worse, they'll eventually burn out and cease to exist. Even Godzilla is saddened by this fate.
  • Suddenly Speaking: Pretty much all of the kaiju EXCEPT Godzilla and the Gyaos swarm (barring Ariel). It's possible the demons just understand them better, but even the aliens understand Gigan just fine.
  • The Swarm: An entire flock of Gyaos counts as this for our heroes. They're ravenously hungry and they love their meat screaming.
  • Tail Slap: Godzilla does this quite a bit to either clear the room or slam opponents to the ground.
  • Take That!:
  • Talking the Monster to Death: Godzilla's rampage and some of his outbursts are tempered by having Naamah handle it. Her soothing voice and lack of fear when dealing with him may have something to do with it.
  • Thememobile: What Alastor calls the limousine Charlie has. He's always wanted to call it that, apparently. Despite that, it gets destroyed by Godzilla when he makes his presence known to the crew.
  • The Alcoholic: Husk, of course. There's a given reason for it now. Either way, he's fiercely protective of his booze.
  • The Medic: Naamah serves as this to the Hazbin Hotel.
  • Thinking Up Portals: How Gigan and Monster X got to Hell. Presumingly, the other kaiju went through this, even Godzilla. Two physical portals appear thanks to Alastor during Chapter 9, causing a Gyaos-related disaster and the arrival of Redman.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: When Godzilla makes his first roar, the demons get a feeling like this, as well as being frozen in place. They're unfortunately right to be afraid...
  • Tyke Bomb: The Dorats are planned to be this by Gigan, who wants to train them before mutating them into a Ghidorah to fight Godzilla and Alastor. However, he quickly goes to treating them as his actual kids, despite how he still insists he's not father material. It helps they enjoy the training.
  • Unexplained Recovery: While we know how Monster X recovered from his battle with Godzilla, we're still unclear as to how Gigan was restored. Given that his head was still intact...
  • Valentine's Day Episodes: Has one in Chapter 11, taking place around the day and dedicated to all established (and teased) couples.
  • Villain Song:
    • Gigan engages in Chapter 6, with his own version of Gaston. The aliens and Moxxie fill in for most of the lyrics and it's mostly about how awesome he thinks of himself...and is.
    • The Albino Gyaos gets one in her introductory chapter. Mainly, A Stranger I Remain. It surprisingly fits.
    • Gigan gets his own original song in Chapter 10, Gigan's Lullaby, but one could hardly call it that unless you interpret it as explaining his Start of Darkness.
  • Villain Team-Up: I.M.P with most of the aliens that have menaced Godzilla's planet, including the Xiliens, the Kilaaks, and the Nebula Space Hunter M.
    • Heck, said aliens (which also include both alien races from the Black Hole) are in an alliance called E.V.I.L (Expansive Vibrant Interstellar Legion).
  • The Voiceless: Even though all the other kaiju have proven capable of speech, Godzilla somehow can only speak in roars and grunts. That, or he simply doesn't choose to talk. It makes socializing with him a bit harder. Later chapters indicate it's not by choice and at least one comment theorized it was because of his throat being chewed into by Destroyah.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: Monster X, as it turns out. He does it twice in the fanfic, but with his reasons. First to get into Hazbin without alerting Godzilla (in which he looks the part of Ms. Firedoubt, fooling nobody) and then to cheer Cherri up on Valentines Day (in which he dresses up as her old flame).
  • The Worf Effect:
    • The Albino Gyaos does this to the crew present in Chapter 9, using her absorbing energy shield to GREAT effect. Even Monster X is downed easily and nearly pressured to become Keizer Ghidorah.
    • Earlier, Alastor does this to Godzilla, taking him out with a small blow to the back of the neck.
  • You Are Not Alone: Naamah to Godzilla. He returns the favor with a heartfelt hug in Chapter 9 when he learns of her situation.
  • You Killed My Father: Apparently, Redman killed Moxxie's parents at some point, explaining the imp's utter fear of the guy.

How well does it match the trope?
