Godzilla Vs Gamera
I drew this because I felt like drawing something in theme with my Red or Dead Project so I drew some iconic giant monsters :D
I thought I needed some regular drawing time as I have been in a constant flow of creating animations for Red or Dead.
Japanese name: メカゴジラ
Romanized name: Mekagojira
Alignment: Varies by continuity
Species: Cyborg, machine, robot
Inspiration: Godzilla, robot
Status: Varies by continuity.
From: Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974), Terror of Mechagodzilla, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1993), Godzilla x Mechagodzilla, Godzilla × Mothra × Mechagodzilla: Tokyo SOS, Godzilla Island
- The likely inspiration for Mechagodzilla’s creation was Mechani-Kong, introduced in 1966.
- An “MG” symbol was placed on the first Showa Mechagodzilla’s arms. In Terror of Mechagodzilla, the emblems on the new robot read “MG2”.
- Black Mechagodzilla (ブラックメカゴジラ), based on the Showa Mechagodzilla, appeared in Godzilla Island. It was apparently much stronger than its predecessor. The Heisei Mechagodzilla was actually Godzilla’s ally in the aforementioned television series.
- In the 30 Rock episode “Chain Reaction of Mental Anguish”, a character is wearing a Mechagodzilla costume.
- The Millennium version of Mechagodzilla was nicknamed “Kiryuu” (機龍), which translates to “Machine Dragon”. The real life city Kiryuu (桐生市) is located in Gunma, Japan.
- Unlike its previous incarnations, Kiryuu could move its tail.
- One of Zilla’s foes in Godzilla: The Series, Cyber-Zilla, was probably an homage to Mechagodzilla and or Mecha-King Ghidorah.
“I will never understand the hate for GODZILLA VS. SPACEGODZILLA. It’s really no better or worse than the other Heisei flicks.”
Yes… yes, it is…
“GODZILLA’S REVENGE is the unsung masterpiece of the series. It’s the kind of personal, earnest film about family life that Ishiro Honda loved to make. And the stock footage doesn’t even bother me, considering it takes place in a kid’s mind.”

“GODZILLA VS. DESTORYAH is the REVENGE OF THE SITH of Godzilla movies.
It’s almost 2 hours of boring nonsense with squandered character potential and sub-par effects work,
But the last 5 minutes lure you into a state of emotional vulnerability that tricks you into thinking it was good.”
