Trilobite.jpg
Godzilla (1954)
Species: Prehistoric Arthropod • Length: 1 millimeter to 72 centimeters • Weight: 4.5 kilograms
Main article: Trilobite.
In Godzilla, a living trilobite was discovered by Dr. Kyohei Yamane in one of Godzilla's footprints on Odo Island. Yamane concluded from the creature's presence in the footprint, along with the age of the sediment found with it, that Godzilla must have been living in a deep underwater pocket since the Jurassic Period before being disturbed by H-bomb testing. In Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, Dr. Tokumitsu Yuhara created a cybernetic "Mecha-Trilobite." This technology would lay the groundwork for the construction of Kiryu, using the original Godzilla's skeleton.

Godzilla Raids Again (1955)
[U.S. version]
In Dr. Yamane's presentation of footage on the prehistory of Earth, the head of a creature rises out of a "boiling earth pool". It then glances at its surroundings and returns to the pool.
  • Despite the speculation that all of these creatures are stock footage from other films, no one has identified the films that they are sourced from. The exceptions are a Dimetrodon and the ceratosaurs, which were found in Unknown Island (1948).

Shipniocus is a prehistoric fernaceous plant discovered adhering to the eggs of both BabyGodzilla and Rodan on Adonoa Island. It emits a mysterious telepathic energy which, when interpreted by psychics and fed into a recording, produces a melody. Whenever Baby or Rodan heard this melody, they received a large intake of power. In the case of Rodan, the energy from this melody was sufficient to revive him following his battle with Godzilla and transform him into Fire Rodan.

The brainchild of Kazuma Aoki, the Pteranodon Robot was a flying vehicle modeled after the Pteranodons he adored so much. Aoki brought the completed robot to the enclosure where BabyGodzilla was being held by the United Nations Godzilla Countermeasure Center and cared for by Azusa Gojo. Aoki let Azusa ride on the robot with him, but as they passed over Baby's enclosure the robot sputtered and suddenly dropped out of the sky, crashing in the enclosure. Both Aoki and Azusa were unhurt, though the Pteranodon Robot was damaged. Aoki later repaired the Pteranodon Robot and used it to exit the Garuda during the battle between Godzilla and Super Mechagodzilla.

[stock footage]

During the first military operation against the giant mutated iguana dubbed Godzilla in Manhattan, two looters named Renny and Jimmy were robbing an electronic store. As their crime was being committed, the 1955 film It Came from Beneath the Sea played on one of the store's television sets, featuring the titular giant octopus. Suddenly, Godzilla came charging through the street where the electronics store was located, scaring away but narrowing missing the two thieves with its crushing feet.

  • It Came from Beneath the Sea was produced and distributed by Columbia Pictures, a sister company to TriStar Pictures and Sony. Its inclusion may have been an affordable alternative to one of Toho's other monster movie creations in what is essentially a brief visual gag.

History
Main article: Trilobite#Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla.

By 1999, scientist Tokumitsu Yuhara had successfully created a cybernetic trilobite, which was dubbed a Mecha-Trilobite (メカトリロバイト,   Mekatorirobaito). Using living nerves and tissue from horseshoe crabs along with robotic components and special "DNA computers," Yuhara perfectly replicated the extinct arthropod, which moved and behaved as if it were alive. Yuhara intended to use this method to revive extinct species and preserve endangered ones. When the Japanese government learned of Yuhara's work, it recruited him to use his method to cybernetically revive the original Godzilla by merging his skeleton into a battle machine dubbed Kiryu so it could fight the current Godzilla.

Height: 80 centimeters[10]Weight: 1800 grams[10]
History

A swarm of bats caused Gezora, a monster created by the malevolent Space Amoeba, to break off his attack on a Sergio Island village. After Rico told the others about this incident, Dr. Miya concluded that ultrasonic waves must be the key to defeating the alien monsters. While searching for bats, Kudo and Ayako were chased by another Space Amoeba-created monster, a giant turtle called Kamoebas. They discovered a cave housing the flying mammals. The bats' sonar repelled the monster, proving Dr. Miya's theory. The next day, the alien directed Obata to light the entrance of a cave on fire in an attempt to kill the bats. He revealed his alien possession to the others, but an emotional appeal by Ayako allowed his human side to resurface long enough to let the bats escape. The aliens took control once again, summoning Kamoebas and a second Ganimes to the island to finally destroy the humans. The bats swarmed around the two monsters, disrupting the extraterrestrial influence. No longer controlled by the aliens, the monsters came to blows.

In 1999, the scientist Ryougen Nishiyama warned humanity that if they did not stop the arms race, it would lead to World War III. To illustrate his point, he depicted a bleak future of a world dwelled by the mutated survivors of a devastating nuclear war; the Soft-bodied Humans in this hypothesis had reverted to an animalistic state and fought each other over whatever resources they could find among the wreckage.

History

The Giant Slugs were created after the human race's struggle for survival led them to the Gibberellin, a plant which triples the growth rate of an average food harvest and Earth's pollution after corporations disobeyed the Japanese government's efforts to take care of the environment at all costs. Instead of complying to the agreement, corporations merely developed a technique to mask the noxious fumes being poured into the sky. So, after the excessive amounts of pollution and the Gibberellin's hormones, Earth's slugs were mutated into Giant Slugs. Fortunately, the Japanese government wasted no time in eradicating the oversized mollusks, sending flamethrower-equipped soldiers to take care of the creatures. Thanks to the Self Defense Force, every last one of the Giant Slugs were burned alive.

The United Nations team is forced to don anti-radiation suits to continue venturing through New Guinea. As they continue their journey, the second party realizes that the local wildlife has been irradiated by the dust clouds. Some of those creatures were the Giant Bats. The Giant Bats assaulted the United Nations team, and the members of the team were forced to duck and cover to escape the blows from the Giant Bats' wings. Eventually, the group pulled out pistols, shot all the Bats down, and continued on their journey.

  • In addition to a prop of the monster's entire body, special effects director Teruyoshi Nakano also constructed a large animatronic of the Dragon's neck.
  • A popular rumor is that the Dragon prop was originally constructed for the unmade Toho and Hammer Films collaboration film Nessie and reused by Teruyoshi Nakano for Princess from the Moon. However, given that Nessie was cancelled nearly a decade before Princess from the Moon was produced, and that no confirmation of this is made in any known official books, this rumor is most likely false.

Before the T-rex could be devoured and Cretaceous King Ghidorah could abduct the Triceratops, Rainbow Mothra made his presence known with a volley of Cross Heat Rainbow Lasers, causing the space monster to drop the screaming dinosaur.

After Rainbow Mothra severed part of Cretaceous King Ghidorah's tail with another Cross Heat Rainbow Laser, a Triceratops and a Tyrannosaurus observed the appendage as it burrowed underground and stared at each other in concern.

Unable to defeat the creature, the aliens created a crystalline computer, one that Quinn and Pete had stumbled across earlier, to trap the Cyclops Creature by creating the force field that surrounds the island, preventing it from ever escaping.
  • While never given names, Captain Majors refers to the aliens simply as "space visitors."
  • The space visitors share a striking resemblance to Ultraman, notably the overall body shape and familiar headcrest.
Watchuki People
Watchuki People.jpg
Godzilla Episode 12,
"The Sub-Zero Terror"
The Watchuki, sometimes called the Snowmen, were a species of ape-like people living in the Himalayas. Thousands of years ago, humans drove the Watchuki high into the mountains, where they would remain, and become the subject of local superstition. There they discovered a jungle growing in an dormant volcano and used geothermal power to maintain a thriving civilization hidden within the mountain. They mined gems and developed relatively advanced technologies and weapons during their exile, as they kept their large warriors in cryogenic stasis, and prepared for their return to the surface world to wage war on the humans and take back their mountainous lands. It is posited by Dr. Quinn Darian that their xenophobic attitude led to their being forced into the mountains in the first place, but the veracity of this statement is never addressed or confirmed.

When the crew of the Calico came to the Himalayas, they were led into forbidden territory inhabited by the Watchuki, who took them prisoner. Godzilla arrived to rescue them and they sent the Great Watchuka after them. Godzilla defeated their champion, but the battle reactivated the volcano and triggered an eruption. Godzilla slammed a giant stone into the mouth of the volcano to stop the eruption, presumably burning the Great Watchuka and all of the Watchuki to death in the lava.

Diplodocus

"The Time Dragons"
Main article: Diplodocus.

A Diplodocus rose from the depths of the ocean to attack the Calico crew when they were sent back in time by a falling satellite. The dinosaur almost managed to destroy its enemies, but it was stopped by Godzilla. Godzilla surfaced from the jungle to battle the Diplodocus, but once the Diplodocus saw Godzilla's fire breath, it quickly turned around and retreated.

Abilities
  • The Diplodocus has no known abilities.
  • Diplodocus was a real dinosaur genus, and was actually an herbivore that lived on land rather than in the ocean. Diplodocus lived from 154 to 152 million years ago during the Late Jurassic Period and, at up to 25 meters in length, was one of the longest land animals to ever walk the Earth.

They got into a great fight and returned to the base to treat the wounded, but then discovered that these spiders were like widow spiders, only larger; this caused them to theorize that they might be a new species. Hicks planned to eliminate the spiders by dousing the island in pesticides, but realized that that would kill everything else on it. The spiders were resistant to almost all toxins, and the Queen Giant Mutant Widow Spider attacked the base.

The prolonged presence of the Red Dust in Tokyo brings forth a crimson plant mass spreading throughout the city, one that engulfs, weakens, and ultimately tears down buildings as it multiplies. Scientific and military experts nickname the phenomenon 'the Blob' or 'Gray Goo', both echoing the hypothetical scenario where out-of-control self-replicating machines or predatory cells consume all biomass on Earth.

Dr. Carole Kincaid witnessed a smiling robot seizing a scientist in a chokehold while another brandished an axe during their tour of the space laboratory ParaSOL. When Rodan and Ebirah escaped containment, the pterosaur's powerful wings sent the crustacean crashing through several sectors of the laboratory, decapitating the robot in the process. By then, it had the axe embedded in its head and a spatter of blood on its face.

Giant capybara

Hideous and malformed mutations that inhabit the lowest levels, past the 80th floor, of the otherwise idyllic future city of Harmony Cluster Nine in the year 2299. The origins of these nocturnal creatures are never revealed, but they are considered common vermin by the future inhabitants, who routinely drop firebombs into the lower levels to keep the mutants' numbers in check. When a time-traveling Godzilla is brought to Harmony Cluster Nine by the villain Elmer Mason, the ensuing chaos allows the mutants to run rampant above-ground, violently attacking innocent citizens and Mason's pirate armies alike.

Godzilla, King of the Monsters
History

A new species of Ankylosaurus discovered by Dr. Mad Oniyama with the assistance of a version of himself who travelled through time, the Ankylosaurus's fossilised skeleton was placed on display at a dinosaur expo. With the expo in operation, the two Oniyamas used KIDS to fire a beam into the fossil to revive it, resulting in a living Ankylosaurus. Aware that Godzilla would come to protect Hideo Kaneko and his friends, who were at the Expo, the Oniyamas used KIDS to devolve Godzilla into a Godzillasaurus, and the two ancient reptiles fought. With the Ankylosaurus losing the fight, KIDS was used again to fire a syringe full of DNA into the Ankylosaurus's body, causing it to rapidly grow into a full-sized Anguirus.

  • The Ankylosaurus's roar is rendered as "Gyaaasu" (ギャアアス).

They shoot bullets at the player's monster while up to two spore monsters spawn from it, also shooting and attempting to swarm the player. Once the hive takes enough damage, the spores will stop spawning and the hive will start shooting bigger bullets in a different pattern until defeated. Though functionally the same, three types appear through the game:
  • On Earth, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto, generic mushroom-shaped hives appear.
  • On Mars and Saturn, huge, almost mountain-shaped mushroom hives appear.
  • On Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto, mushroom-shaped hives with a seemingly collapsed top appear.

Not counting the totem-like gun towers, mechanical weapons that appear elsewhere in the game, there is a total of six different plant enemy types:
  • Foliage cannons: small spheres atop wavy vines. They have what looks like openings on the orbs, and from them, the plants shoot at the player's monster in an arc.
  • Thorn towers: asparagus-looking plants that move up and down while shooting lasers vertically. The lasers are colored the same as the player's character, and at higher levels, when Mothra's eye beams come in contact with the lasers, she is damaged.
  • Vine cannons: plants that are rooted on the ground and have some kind of flowers coming out of them. From those flowers they shoot spinning projectiles that slowly home in on the player's monster.
  • Bio-blockades: strange prickly-looking bushes that go up and down from the ground. While they do appear on Earth, it is only in the background and they do not attack, nor can they be hit.
  • Bio-cannons: large plants that have a big flower in the middle. They attack the exact same as the pole enemies, and like them, these plants cannot be walked through until defeated. Like the previous plant, it only appears as part of the background on Earth.
  • Airborne bombers: flying flowers that shower bullets down once the player gets close. This type of enemy does not appear on Earth.
