Godzilla MMD are a trilogy(possibly) of short films depicting Godzilla Earth from the anime trilogy battling enemies that has appeared throughout the franchise.

The first film is a re-imagining of Godzilla Earth's fight against the anime version of Mechagodzilla. The link is here

The second film has Godzilla appearing in modern day Japan, fending off waves of military forces, including the Super Xs, the Garuda, the Gotengo and the Vulture. The link is here

The author has recently announced plans to remake the first film, and make a few other shorts in the same style. See here for more info. English translations provided in the comment section.

This page contains the following tropes:

  • Adaptational Badass:
    • While no official stats are given, Godzilla Earth is depicted as if he's already reached his staggering 300 meter height in the anime trilogy, as opposed to 50 meters as he was at this point in canon. Likewise his beam attacks and strength are given a massive upgrade. He uses some of the city destroying abilities alluded to in the novels but never shown on screen.
    • MechaGodzilla is likewise at the same height as Godzilla Earth, towering over nearby mountains, and puts up a much better fight than he did in canon. In the anime, he didn't even get a chance to fight Godzilla, and was destroyed before ever fighting him directly. Here, he uses all of his concept art and anime abilities, putting them to use in new and creative ways.
    • While The Stinger of the second film only shows King/Otaru Ghidorah for a brief moment, he's summoned in full and has his completed body present before Godzilla Earth, and Ghidorah towers over the Monster King.

  • The Bad Guy Wins: In the first film, Godzilla blasts Mechagodzilla to atoms. In the second film, he destroys all of the military forces and renders the entire city in flames leaving him and the Servum as the victors.
  • Big Bad: Godzilla Earth, as usual, and taken up to an extent the anime never showcased. This Godzilla is almost sadistic.
  • Beam-O-War: Godzilla and Mechagodzilla challenged each other with their attacks. Godzilla won.
  • Beam Spam: Godzilla Earth unleashes a charged particle attack from his dorsal spines that fires towards all surrounding enemies. Interestingly, the beams are shown to have tracking abilities.
  • Defiant to the End: Operation Black Star. Humanity knows they can't beat Godzilla Earth, but they're not going to wait to be annihilated. No, they're going down swinging with everything they've got.
    • MechaGodzilla, likewise, still draws its blades and stands back up as Godzilla Earth charges his final attack to destroy the machine. It's badly damaged, can barely stand, and its eyes are malfunctioning, but Mecha G refused to lie down and die.
  • Foregone Conclusion: The second film is set during the past when Godzilla Earth was rampaging. Obviously, the military fails to win and are destroyed. Even the characters are aware they don't stand a chance, but want to be Defiant to the End.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Mechagodzilla gets cut through the mid-section by Godzilla Earth's Plasma Cutter. The Garuda suffered the same fate.
  • Healing Factor: Godzilla Earth instantly repairs his dorsal plates in an instant after it was blown apart by Mechagodzilla.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Mechagodzilla transforms its arms into the Hyper Lance to gore through Godzilla Earth's chest. This doesn't work.
  • Jagged Mouth: As in canon, Godzilla Earth's teeth are an extension of his lips. The issue of lack of expression this comes with is avoided with clever camera angles.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: The first portion of the second film has humanity just unload with everything they got on Godzilla. It doesn't work.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Mechagodzilla's wide range of abilities and transformations are based on concept art for its debut film and are actually canon.
    • Godzilla Earth's spine attack is based on his predecessor's in Shin Godzilla.
    • Godzilla doesn't fall for the Super X-2's heat mirror trap as he did in Godzilla vs. Biollante, giving the thing an annoyed glance as if he recognizes the machine. His face just screams, "Not this time, humans."
  • Shockwave Stomp: Godzilla Earth smashes his supercharged foot to the ground, sending out an electromagnetic pulse that disables all remaining enemy flyers.
  • Slasher Smile: While Godzilla Earth lacks lips, this lack of expressiveness is bypassed by clever camera angles to give him one of these when appropriate.
  • Smug Super: Godzilla Earth is presented in this fashion, with his body language and expressions giving him an air of hubris. The second movie sees him let the Earth's military lay into him with everything before retaliating and effortlessly destroying them. A few clever camera angles give him a smug Glasgow Grin to rub it in.
  • The Stinger: The end of the second short film has the Planet Eater, Ghidorah appearing to confront Godzilla Earth.
  • Transforming Mecha: Mechagodzilla can convert itself into a ship in order to confuse Godzilla Earth and evade his attacks.
