Godzilla Filius (ゴジラ・フィリウス) is a kaiju who appeared in the 2017 Godzilla film, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters.
Formed from cells that divided from Godzilla Earth during the 20,000 years he ruled over the Earth, Godzilla Filius grew to a height of 50 meters and was living in the former Tanzawa area when the Aratrum returned to Earth to reclaim it. Mistaking Filius for Godzilla himself, Haruo Sakaki and the Aratrum crew undertook a desperate plan to exploit Filius' only weakness and destroy him. While Haruo's plan was successful in destroying Filius, he and his allies were caught completely off guard when Godzilla Earth emerged to challenge them.

Stamina: Very high
Range: Tens of meters by sheer size, thousands of meter with Atomic Breath
Standard Equipment: Tail and claws
Intelligence: Animalistic. Godzilla Filius was depicted as hostile inherently, attacking humanity on sight, rather than waiting to be engaged.
Weaknesses: Its shield automatically collapses for a split second every few seconds, and destroying its dorsal fin will knock out its forcefield until it can regenerate
- Charged Particle Breath (Atomic Breath): Like its parent, Filius possesses the ability to shoot devastating radioactive electric beams. These beams are highly accurate, and Filius was able to use them with pinpoint accuracy to take down small nimble hovercraft nearby.
- Asymmetrically Permeable Shield: Filius possesses the ability to surround itself by an energy shield, generated by electromagnetic nanomaterials. It is generated via a high-output high-frequency electromagnetic pulse from within its body, which was deduced to be generated by an organ within the body. This was later determined to be its dorsal plates, which were targeted during the attack on Filius.
Note: We consider Godzilla Earth to be a separated incarnation of the character.
