— Ford to Master Sergeant Marcus Waltz, trying to go with the nuclear warhead being used as bait to attract the MUTOs (Godzilla)

Ford Brody is a fictional United States Navy Lieutenant who serves as the main protagonist of the 2014 Legendary Pictures film Godzilla.




Fifteen years following the death of his mother Sandra Brody and subsequent destruction of the Janjira Nuclear Power Plant, Ford Brody and his father Joseph try to form a duo to investigate the truth as to what caused the incident. Ford encounters Godzilla and the MUTOs a number of times. Ford himself is a Lieutenant in the United States Navy, as an E.O.D. (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) technician. As the female MUTO laid eggs and used a nuclear warhead as an energy source for the soon to be offspring, Ford and his men removed the nuke and he destroyed the eggs. This inadvertently saved Godzilla as it distracted the MUTOs who rushed to their nest to find it destroyed, granting Godzilla a reprieve. The female M.U.T.O then noticed Ford and attempted to kill him. Godzilla, having gained his second wind, intervened and returned the favor by blasting the female M.U.T.O with his atomic breath twice, knocking her down long enough for Ford to load the bomb onto the boat, and for Godzilla to kill the male before saving Ford's life once again by killing the female. With the MUTO's EMP ability no longer being in effect, Ford got the boat working but was too injured to move. Not long afterward, he was saved by a helicopter and was airlifted out as the bomb exploded harmlessly out at sea. The next day, Ford reunites with his family as they spot Godzilla on the news, seemingly dead from the battle, only to rise up and return to the sea.
