Summary

The Godzilla series is a kaiju franchise made by Toho. It features Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and many others. Like most franchises, Godzilla has several different continuities and spawned many comics, mangas, games, TV shows, etc., so, the canon can be confusing.

Godzilla has crossed over with other verses in different kinds of media, including: King Kong, Gamera, the Ultra Series, Kamen Rider, Evangelion, Mazinger Z, Gundam and Marvel Comics among others.

Note: Within versus threads, the original poster should specify which incarnation of Godzilla or any other Kaiju that is being used.

Series

Information

This verse is very powerful as it has several broken abilities and ranges widely in power. In the original 1954 Godzilla movie, there are Building level+ to City level+ feats. By Shin Godzilla, the series made building-busting low-level as it debuted city block and town-busting, with characters hitting Mountain level by the GMK Continuity. By the Godzilla 2000 Continuity, the average monsters were around Country level+, due to Godzilla being capable to damage the Millennian UFO, which survived a crash with Earth at Relativistic+ speeds. By the Kiryu and Final Wars continuities, very often there are characters who are planetary threats, as even the weakest monsters of this period are Multi-Continent level. In Heisei Era characters surpassed Planet level and even reached Dwarf Star level within the Megaguirus Continuity. In the Showa Era, almost from the very beginning, characters reach Small Star level+ with Second Generation King Ghidorah being stronger than the Garoga Nukes. More characters at this level are introduced, as well as forms that significantly increase that level of strength. Finally, in the end of the Showa Era, Large Star level power was reached, with feats such as surpassing time and exceeding the strength of the previous arc's villains.

The God tier of the verse is King Ghidorah (Anime), who is a 4th dimensional being who's mere presence distorts space and time itself, who cannot be 'killed' on the 3-D level and will eventually devour the entire universe if not more as one of the strongest in-verse characters, placing him at a solid Universe level+.

Godzilla himself has several impressive feats such as reacting to and shooting a comet carrying Monster X/Kaiser Ghidorah while it was still in space, tanking an absolute zero blast, surviving as nothing but a beating heart, and moving the Earth's tectonic plates from the indirect force of Heisei Godzilla and Larva Battra's battle.

  • Showa Continuity: City level to Large Star level between the Original Godzilla movie, Zone Fighter and Destroy All Monsters.
  • Heisei Continuity: Island level+ during Godzilla vs. Biollante, reaching even Planet level during Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah and higher into Planet level during the sequels.
  • Rebirth of Mothra Continuity: Below Average level to Planet level.
  • Godzilla 2000 Continuity: Country level+.
  • Godzilla vs. Megaguirus Continuity: Street level to Dwarf Star level.
  • GMK Continuity: City level+ to Mountain level.
  • Kiryu Saga: Building level to Multi-Continent level.
  • Final Wars Continuity: Multi-Continent level.
  • Shin Continuity: Wall level to Town level.
  • Anime Trilogy: Wall level to Universe level+.

Godzillaverse has some notable striking strength feats, as they are capable of destroying Mountains and beyond with their physical attacks. The verse's levels range from Below Average Class on the lower ends, to Universal+ on higher ends. Characters had high lifting strength feats, that range from Below Average Human on the lower ends, to Class P on higher ends.

Ranges from Superhuman to Supersonic+ movement speed, with FTL reactions and combat speed, and MFTL+ speed feats. Several monsters (such as Showa King Ghidorah) are confirmed to have FTL flight speed

Humanity and alien races had developed High level technology that includes spaceships to travel between the solar system, time machines, mental control machines, armament capable of hurting the kaiju such as the hyper maser cannons, chemical weapons that can destroy entire cities at molecular level like the Oxygen Destroyer and finally the definitive weapons known as Mechas to fight the Kaiju. The technology of alien races ranges from weapons able to hurt the kaiju to being able to destroy Large Planets such as Peaceland with ease.

  • Kaiju: Kaiju (怪獣 kaijū) is a Japanese word that literally means "strange beast" and is usually translated as "monster" in English. Traditionally, kaiju can refer any sort of strange creature, but in recent times the word has become associated with a genre of tokusatsu entertainment, specifically Japanese cinema that involved giant monsters. The most powerful kaiju are at times advertently referred to as daikaiju (大怪獣 daikaijū) the prefix dai- emphasizing great power or status and is usually translated as "giant monster."
  • Mecha: Mechas are typically depicted as humanoid mobile robots. The term was first used in Japanese (meka) after shortening the English loanword mekanikaru ('mechanical'), but the meaning in Japanese is more inclusive, and "robot" (robotto) or "giant robot" is the narrower term.
  • Earth Defenders: Earth Defenders tolerate humans but do not make a point to defend them - they see the Aliens as a blight on Earth and destroying them is their primary goal. They protect the world and their home of Monster Island from any foreign threat including humans.
  • Divine Monsters: These monsters are/have been worshipped by humans, and are aware of their divine power (figuratively and literally) and exert it, both to reward and punish, some being more benevolent than others. Most of them defend the cosmos itself, and therefore often ally with Earth Defenders.
  • Demonic Monsters: A demon is a supernatural evil being, that usually follows the commands of a demonic deity, which principal motivations can vary, but usually tortured souls and kaiju for eternity in Hell.
  • GDF (Global Defense Force): The Global Defense Force has built many mechs to defend mankind from monsters, be they from Earth or Outer Space.
  • Aliens: These Alien monsters do the bidding of different alien races. Their primary goal is to conquer Earth by any means. They are willing to destroy both humans and kaiju from the other factions alike to achieve their goals, and with the support of their military, they are prepared to crush any resistance from the planet.
  • Lawless Monsters: Due to various reasons, these monsters merely follow their own needs, making no allies and attacking everything that threatens them. Some have a lust for power that comes before all other concerns, all working for their own, sinister agenda: to destroy everything in their path. Some of them are bent in world domination, others merely destroy what they dislike and if unchecked, could destroy human civilization.
  • Independent Forces: These monsters are under mind control in order to obey the power of crazy scientists or any other races that came from Earth, and independently of the time period, who have the intention to take control over the planet. These creatures are, therefore, extremely dangerous.
  • Keizer: A Kaiser, also spelled as Keizer, is an extremely rare type of mutant who is granted additional powers due to the fusion of M-base and human DNA. In addition to the standard mutant abilities of superhuman strength, heightened reflexes, superior coordination and increased agility, Kaisers are able to control any other life-form by telepathic means if that organism has M-base.
  • Shobijin: Are tiny twin priestesses of Mothra who first appeared in the 1961 film, Mothra. They have been featured in nearly all of the character's film appearances since, as well as in several comics and video games. While their names and portrayals have varied over the years, Mothra's Shobijin act as her link to humanity, interceding on her behalf with the rest of the world. The Shobijin can telepathically communicate with Mothra and translate her messages, and often sing in order to summon her or pray for her aid.
  • Mutants: are the genetic descendents of both humans and Xiliens. They were trained as a form of highly elite soldiers by the EDF under Commander Kumasaka. In Godzilla: Final Wars, all but Ozaki (and later Kazama) fell under the control of X. The most notable Mutant is Ozaki, who used his Keizer Energy to revive Godzilla.

  • Showa Continuity: The first Godzilla film began the Showa era of the kaiju industry, with Godzilla being the usual kaiju affiliated with this era. During the beginning of the Showa era, Godzilla was mainly antagonistic in nature, taking on the likes of Anguirus and Mothra. By the time of Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster, Godzilla adopted what would soon become his most famous image: a heroic monster, battling terrible villains with other monsters by his side. Toho produced a significant number of tokusatsu television programs in the Showa era, one of which, Zone Fighter, even featured appearances by Godzilla and some of his other monster co-stars and is considered part of the official continuity of the Showa Godzilla films.
  • Kiryu Saga Continuity: * Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla and Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. - These two films are the only entries in the Millennium series to share continuity, and are often collectively referred to as the "Kiryu Saga." Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla is a direct sequel to the original Godzilla and establishes that Godzilla first appeared in 1954 and was killed by the Oxygen Destroyer. The only change from the events of the original film is that Godzilla's skeleton remained intact instead of being disintegrated. This film also references the events of Mothra and The War of the Gargantuas, including stock footage from both films. The next film, Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. is a direct sequel to Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla and makes further references to Mothra, even featuring the character Shinichi Chujo. The events of the film Space Amoeba are also referenced when the corpse of Kamoebas is found on a beach. It is also mentioned that another Kamoebas was seen sometime in the 1980's. Supplementary books for the film establish that the events of several other non-Godzilla Showa era kaiju films occurred in this continuity, including Rodan, Varan, Gorath, Atragon, Dogora, Frankenstein vs. Baragon, and King Kong Escapes.

  • Heisei Continuity: The Heisei series of Godzilla films lasted from 1984 to 1995, and has also been nicknamed the VS. Series (VSシリーズ) in Japan due to the word VS. being featured in most of the films' titles. The Heisei series follows a different continuity from the Showa films, ignoring every movie except the original 1954 Godzilla. The Heisei series ran for a total of seven films, with the last film, Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.
  • Rebirth of Mothra Continuity: Mothra received her first standalone film since the original Mothra in 1996 following the temporary close of the Godzilla series. The Rebirth of Mothra trilogy lasted from 1996 to 1998.

  • Godzilla 2000: Millennium: This film does not refer to the events of any film before or after it. All that is established is that Godzilla has been attacking Japan for some time prior to the film's events. Godzilla.jp's entry for Godzilla 2000: Millennium confirms that it is in fact a direct sequel to the original Godzilla, and that the Godzilla featured in the film is the second Godzilla in that continuity, after the original 1954 Godzilla.
  • Godzilla vs. Megaguirus: Although Godzilla in this film sports the same design as in Godzilla 2000: Millennium, the two films do not share continuity. Godzilla vs. Megaguirus shares partial continuity with the original Godzilla, as Godzilla still attacked and destroyed Tokyo in 1954. However, in this continuity the Oxygen Destroyer was never used and Godzilla simply swam out to sea, only to return and attack Tokai in 1966. Godzilla was not seen again until 1996, when he attacked a plasma reactor in Osaka.
  • Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack: Another standalone film, GMK is a direct sequel to the original Godzilla. In this continuity, Godzilla was killed by the Oxygen Destroyer in 1954, but the JSDF claimed credit for killing him in order to avoid facing ridicule and assure the citizens of Japan that they were safe. Eventually, Godzilla was brought back to life and possessed by the restless souls of those killed by the Japanese military in World War II, and returned in 2002 to destroy Japan. This film also makes a passing reference to the 1998 American film, as Taizo Tachibana mentions early on that a giant reptilian monster similar to Godzilla recently attacked New York City. A soldier asks if the creature was Godzilla, while another responds that the Americans think so, but the Japanese doubt it.
  • Godzilla: Final Wars: Despite its numerous nods to previous films and inclusion of stock footage, is an entirely standalone film that shares continuity with no other films. In this continuity, Godzilla first appeared in 1954, prompting the formation of the Earth Defense Force. In the following years, the EDF battled against the countless monsters appearing around the Earth. At an undisclosed point prior to the main events of the film, the Gotengo lured Godzilla to Antarctica and managed to trap him underneath the ice. For the next several decades, Godzilla remained imprisoned in Area G while humanity was kept safe from other monsters by the EDF. It is not disclosed in what year the main events of Final Wars take place, as supplementary materials only refer to it as the year 20XX, but it is presumed to be sometime in the near future.

  • Shin Godzilla: is a complete reboot to the franchise in which Godzilla attacks Japan for the first time in the modern day. After a disaster in the Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line, Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Rando Yaguchi proposes that the culprit is a giant creature, only for his suggestion to be laughed off. However, Yaguchi is proven right when a huge gilled creature swims up the Tama River and comes ashore in Ota Ward of Tokyo. The JSDF is unable to mobilize in time and the creature escapes after leaving a trail of destruction. Now, Yaguchi and a ragtag team of bureaucratic rebels band together to find a method of defeating the creature, dubbed Godzilla, as he continues to evolve and returns to menace Tokyo again.
  • Godzilla Anime Trilogy: GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters, and that it would be the first entry in a trilogy of anime Godzilla films. GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters was released to Japanese theaters in November 2017. The second entry was released in May 2018, followed by the third film was released in November 2018.
