The Godzilla (ゴジラ,   Gojira?) from the GODZILLA anime trilogy is an incarnation of Godzilla that will make its first appearance in the 2017 Godzilla film, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters.

It is the first incarnation of Godzilla to appear in an animated film, and is set to be the tallest onscreen incarnation of the character to date. This incarnation of Godzilla first appeared in the year 2030, at which point mankind had already endured over a quarter of a century of repeated attacks from huge creatures called kaiju. Godzilla established himself as the most powerful kaiju, eliminating many of the others and resisting all of mankind's attempts to defeat him, even with the assistance of humanity's alien allies. By 2048, humanity realized it stood no chance against Godzilla, and fled the planet to colonize a new home on the planet Tau-e in the Cetus constellation. When conditions on Tau-e were found to be uninhabitable, a group of humans returned to Earth only to find that 20,000 years have passed, and that a bizarre new ecosystem had sprung up around Godzilla, now the dominant being on the planet.

Name

The name "Godzilla" is a transliteration of Gojira (ゴジラ?), a combination of two Japanese words: gorira (ゴリラ?), meaning gorilla, and kujira (), meaning whale. At one planning stage of the original film, the concept of "Gojira" was described as "a cross between a gorilla and a whale." The two words "whale" and "gorilla" describe Godzilla's traditional characteristics. The word whale represents his aquatic lifestyle and his bulky size. The word gorilla represents his sheer strength and the strategic thinking he uses when fighting against other monsters.

Contrary to popular belief, the name "Godzilla" is not the idea of the American distributor. Before Toho sold the original film to US distributors, Toho's international division had originally marketed an English-subtitled print under the title of Godzilla, King of the Monsters!, which was shown briefly in Japanese-American theaters. Toho came up with "Godzilla" as an English transliteration of the name "Gojira"." The Japanese-to-English translation method of the Americans in the 1950's also proved that Godzilla was the correct English translation of Gojira.

Design

Main article: AnimeGoji.

This Godzilla closely resembles the MonsterVerse Godzilla, with a bulky body, a thick and short neck, large arms, jagged triangular dorsal plates, and a crocodile-like head with a relatively long snout. One major visible physical difference between this Godzilla and the MonsterVerse Godzilla is the appearance of his dorsal plates, which resemble a combination of the MonsterVerse incarnation's plates and Godzilla's traditional maple-leaf shaped plates. Godzilla has at least two spikes on his chin that somewhat resemble a beard, and has a more rounded head and thinner neck than the MonsterVerse Godzilla.

According to the film's executive producer Yoshihiro Furusawa, this Godzilla has grown as a result of ruling over Earth's ecosystem for 20,000 years, and is the tallest onscreen incarnation of the character to date, even exceeding the size of Shin Godzilla.[2]

Origins

This incarnation of Godzilla is unique in that he originated from plant rather than animal life. He is said to be the "end result of natural selection on Earth" and has survived for 20,000 years as the largest and most powerful lifeform in the planet's history.[1]

Abilities

Electromagnetic Charge

Godzilla's body tissue is integrated with metallic muscle fibers that support his massive weight and can also generate a powerful electromagnetic charge. This ability is also possessed by the Servum, a creature derived from Godzilla.[1]

I don't know how to feel about this Godzilla's origin right now. I told two of my friends about this and they flat out hated the idea of Godzilla originating from plant life.

In all honesty, I hope this film will explain about why this Godzilla would originate from plant-life since Toho won't be sticking with the traditional origin that they've been using since 1954, up until 2014 and 2016 that is. Just learning that he originated from plant-life makes me think of Biollante's origin in 1989.

I find it funny how people have always said that Godzilla is a force of nature and now he literally is nature itself.

There is a new theory that this Godzilla will have power over, and is the embodiment of these elements: water, fire, earth, and wind. Someone came up with this theory because two of the figures have slightly different color schemes.

Why would a plant-based organism be the embodiment of water, fire, earth and wind.

It's not a very good theory... In fact, it isn't even a theory. I'm pretty sure a theory needs evidence to back it up. This is more of a hypothesis.

Can't wait to see how the sad ShinGoji haters react when they find out that the new Godzilla is a plant. If they can't even handle him firing beams out of his tail and his back, then who knows how they'll comprehend this.
