Godzilla Triumphant is a Godzilla fan-comic by KaijuKid on Deviantart.

Set in the Heisei series of the franchise ten years after the events of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, Godzilla Junior, now fully grown, is contacted by an alien entity who tasks him in gathering an army of monsters in order to fight a world-destroying monster called Redmoon. Meanwhile, Miki Saegusa must decide whether or not she wants to support the new King of the Monsters. It happens to be a quasi-adaptation of the original draft of GMK with Varan, Baragon and Anguirus as three of the primary monsters as well as featuring other monsters such as Dagarla, Gigan, Jet Jaguar (sort of) and two unused monsters in the form of Redmoon and Erabus.

The comic currently has well over 150 pages, but is currently in a state of dormancy. While KaijuKid is adamant that they are not abandoning the project, they have also noted if they did return to it, they'd most likely start from scratch with new artwork.


This comic provides examples of the following:

  • Adaptational Badass: Anguirus who is necessary in bringing down Baragon.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Gigan is an earth-made, piloted cyborg operating for G-Force in this story.
  • Ascended Extra: Varan is finally given a major role, even if it's a webcomic.
    • Gorosaurus also becomes a part of Godzilla's posse.
  • Big Bad: Redmoon
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Redmoon brainwashes Koji Shinjo into leading his cult.
    • Godzilla Junior and the monsters he brings under his control may also count.
  • Canon Foreigner: The Redmoon cult, Captain Fairfax and Yuki's father.
  • Canon Immigrant: Redmoon, Erabus and Dagarla. Word of God has mentioned Bagan is going to make an appearance.

  • Continuation Fic: The comic is set a decade after the events of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.
  • Continuity Nod: Tons.
    • Akira Yuki from Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla is a major character.
      • Koji Shinjo also appears later on.
    • Miki briefly mentions SpaceGodzilla, Destoroyah and King Ghidorah.
    • Biollante (or rather an illusion of her) appears in the same lake she rose out of in her debut film.
    • Miki still has problems with her psychic powers.
  • Cult: There is one that worships Redmoon.
  • Defeat Equals Friendship: For the most part, whenever Godzilla defeats another monster, he hypnotizes them. Averted with Dagarla.
  • Disappeared Dad: Godzilla Junior's father [[died prior the the events of this comic. Of course if you saw the movie this is set after, you know that already.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: The first thing Redmoon does when he arrives on Earth? Try to dig out his mate.

  • Reimagining the Artifact: Jet Jaguar made his debut in what is considered to be one of the goofiest films of the Showa Era, and his status as a sentient, size-changing robot reflects that. In Godzilla Triumphant though, he's reimagined in two ways: first as a suit of armour made for Akira Yuki by his father, then as a giant, non-size-changing piloted robot modelled after Yuki's suit.
