Cyber Godzilla's name comes from "cyber," referring to the monster's status as a cyborg, and "Godzilla." The nickname "Cyber-Zilla" comes from the fact the TriStar Godzilla's design was later trademarked as a new character called "Zilla" by Toho.
Cyber Godzilla is the original Godzilla that nested in New York City in 1998. Following the creature's death, its corpse was taken to a military base for study. When the Leviathan Aliens overtook the base, they used their technology to modify Godzilla into a cyborg that was completely under their control, using it to turn the second Godzilla against humanity and recruit him to their cause.
Immediately following his resurrection, Cyber Godzilla was sent to eliminate Nick Tatopoulos and Mendel Craven, who had broken into Sandy Point Military Base to rescue their friends from Leviathan Alien control. The new Godzilla, Cyber Godzilla's only living offspring, arrived to protect Tatopoulos, but became conflicted by having to choose between parents. In his moment of hesitation, the Leviathan Aliens took control of him and the father and son worked together to try and eliminate the intruders. After being thrown off the humans' trail, the monsters were sent into the world's major cities to cause destruction, with Cyber Godzilla attacking Tokyo.
Cyber Godzilla continued his rampage until the Leviathan Alien mind control unit was destroyed. He was unaffected by this due to his implants, and was then tasked with eliminating the H.E.A.T. team once again. Godzilla chose Tatopoulos over his father however, and the two clashed. Their quarrel went on until Godzilla tackled Cyber Godzilla into the water and tore out his internal mechanisms.
- Cyber Godzilla is armed with an atomic heat ray which is blue in color (an obvious reference to the Japanese Godzilla) as opposed to his son, whose atomic breath is green.
- Cyber Godzilla can fire up to eight devastating energy missiles from his dorsal plates.
- Cyber Godzilla can reflect sound-based waves and attacks back to their source using the disk on his chest, an effective weapon against the sonic screech of the Giant Bat.
- Cyber Godzilla retains his previous abilities prior to his modification, including an impressive running speed and jumping ability as well as an amphibious lifestyle. However, he is now much more resistant to attack.

Cyber Godzilla's roar is a TriStar Godzilla roar that has been edited to sound more mechanical.
- Cyber Godzilla is a clear reference to Mechagodzilla and Mecha-King Ghidorah, being a cyborg.
- Cyber Godzilla may have partially inspired the Millennium Mechagodzilla, Kiryu, as both are previously dead kaiju that are resurrected using robotic technology and made to fight another kaiju of the same species as them. The largest difference between the two is that Kiryu is a biomecha with its skeleton, DNA, and nervous tissue as his only organic components, while Cyber Godzilla is a cyborg with much of its organic body intact.
- Cyber Godzilla possesses a blue atomic beam and attacks Tokyo, both clear references to the Japanese Godzilla.
