Yuji Shinoda (Godzilla 2000: Millennium)

The Millennium Godzilla (ミレニアムゴジラ,   Mireniamu Gojira) is a kaiju that appeared in the 1999 Godzilla film, Godzilla 2000: Millennium.

It is the first incarnation of Godzilla to appear in the Millennium series of films and fifth onscreen incarnation of the character overall. This Godzilla first appeared sometime after the original Godzilla's demise in 1954, and continually menaced Japan over the years. During a confrontation with the JSDF in Tokai, Godzilla was attacked by a gigantic flying rock, which blasted him into the ocean with a powerful laser beam fired from a hole on its side. Yuji Shinoda, aided by his former colleague Shiro Miyasaka, analyzed some of Godzilla's discarded flesh, and discovered that his cells contained a substance they called Organizer G-1, which allowed his tissue to heal entirely within a matter of hours. They believed this discovery could revolutionize modern medicine and reveal the secret to immortality. Shinoda and Miyasaka also learned that the flying rock from earlier was actually an alien spaceship, whose occupants planned to harness the power of Godzilla's Organizer G-1 to adapt to Earth's atmosphere and establish a thousand-year empire. Godzilla returned for a rematch with the UFO in Shinjuku, where he was subdued and his Organizer G-1 was forcibly extracted. The aliens exited the UFO in a combined form, but the Organizer G-1 quickly overwhelmed them, mutating them into the monster known as Orga. Godzilla fought Orga, with his enemy's healing speed exceeding his own and rendering Orga nearly impossible to kill. Godzilla eventually allowed himself to be swallowed headfirst by Orga, who was attempting to engulf and fully assimilate him, only to unleash a powerful atomic shockwave that beheaded and killed Orga. With the alien invasion thwarted, Godzilla turned his rage on the rest of Tokyo, setting the city ablaze with his atomic breath.

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 (鯨 or クジラ), 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: MireGoji.

The Godzilla in Godzilla 2000: Millennium bears a distinct new appearance that differentiates him from previous incarnations. While all previous incarnations of Godzilla had been a charcoal gray in color, this Godzilla has dark green skin. The dorsal fins are different as well, as they are incredibly large and jagged and are now purple in color as opposed to the traditional bone-white. This Godzilla was made to look more reptilian in appearance, with very prominent scales on his body, and a thinner head with a long snout and sharp teeth.

The Godzilla from Godzilla vs. Megaguirus looks almost identical to this Godzilla, due to being portrayed by the same suit.

Personality

This incarnation of Godzilla retains the destructive anti-hero persona of the Heisei Godzilla, menacing Japan and battling the JSDF before fending off a much greater threat, in this case Orga. The destruction caused by this Godzilla appears to be somewhat deliberate, as Yuji Shinoda remarks that it seems Godzilla is intentionally destroying mankind's energy sources. This Godzilla is more hesitant to retaliate against the military than the Heisei Godzilla, as he withstands an entire assault from the JSDF without ever fighting back, only beginning to charge his atomic breath after being injured by Full Metal Missile Launchers.

This Godzilla displays a degree of strategy during his battle with Orga. After Orga is shown quickly regenerating from all of Godzilla's attacks, Godzilla allows Orga to begin to swallow him headfirst once he unhinges his jaw, allowing him to destroy Orga from the inside with a blast of atomic energy.

Origins

The origins of this Godzilla are never discussed in Godzilla 2000: Millennium. All that is established is that this Godzilla had been menacing Japan for some time prior to the film's events. According to Godzilla.jp, Toho's official website dedicated to the Godzilla series, this Godzilla is the second Godzilla to appear in the continuity of Godzilla 2000: Millennium, after the 1954 Godzilla.

History

Millennium series

Godzilla 2000: Millennium

One night, Godzilla came ashore at Nemuro in Hokkaido, destroying a lighthouse and making his way into the heart of the city. Eventually, Godzilla reached an electrical plant and destroyed it. Yuji Shinoda, founder of the Godzilla Prediction Network (GPN), remarked that it appeared Godzilla was intentionally destroying mankind's energy sources. Godzilla returned to the ocean, and began to approach Tokai, most likely to feed on the nuclear power plant there. Mitsuo Katagiri, head of the government agency Crisis Control Intelligence, ordered the plant's reactors to shut down and mobilized the JSDF at Tokai to engage Godzilla. The JSDF deployed its new cutting-edge Full Metal Missile Launchers, which fired armor-piercing missiles which were believed to be able to penetrate Godzilla's hide. Shinoda traveled to Tokai and confronted Katagiri, telling him Godzilla deserved to be studied rather than destroyed, and that there was no way he could kill Godzilla anyway. Katagiri laughed and told Shinoda he would have GPN dismantled before leaving. The next morning, Godzilla swam close to the shore of Tokai, detonating mines in the water. Godzilla finally surfaced and began approaching the shore, withstanding artillery and missile fire from the JSDF and J.A.S.D.F. with no visible reaction. As Godzilla drew closer to the nuclear plant, the Full Metal Missile Launchers opened fire on him. This time, Godzilla was visibly fazed by the missiles, with chunks of his skin being blown off. While Godzilla was being blasted by the missiles, a gigantic floating rock flew over the battlefield and began scanning Godzilla. It proceeded to fire a laser beam from a hole on its side, knocking Godzilla into a building. Godzilla got up and fired his atomic breath at the rock, which fired another laser beam and knocked Godzilla into the ocean. Godzilla swam away, while the rock flew off into the distance. Shinoda returned and surveyed the battlefield, recovering some of Godzilla's flesh that had been blasted off by the missiles. Using CCI's electron microscope, Shinoda and his former colleague Shiro Miyasaka discovered that Godzilla's cells had completely healed in a matter of hours with no scar tissue. They learned the secret to Godzilla's regeneration was a substance in his cells called Organizer G-1, which granted him virtually limitless regeneration that made him practically immortal.

The rock was later discovered to be an advanced alien UFO, which was attempting to subdue Godzilla and transfer his genetic material to its occupants so they could adjust to Earth's atmosphere. The UFO descended in the Shinjuku ward of Tokyo and used the City Tower to hack into the city's computer systems, draining all data it could find on Godzilla. After CCI's attempts to destroy the UFO failed, Godzilla emerged from Tokyo Bay to challenge the UFO again. Godzilla walked through downtown Tokyo until he reached Shinjuku. The UFO, still intending to subdue Godzilla, tried to restrain him with tentacles it telepathically formed beneath the street, but Godzilla destroyed them with his atomic breath. The UFO then released a shockwave that caused a skyscraper to collapse onto Godzilla, trapping him beneath the rubble. The ship began absorbing Godzilla's DNA and transferring it to its occupants, which emerged from the UFO in a single collective form. The alien suddenly began convulsing as its body became covered in growths and it finally collapsed to the ground. Godzilla broke free from the rubble and blasted the unmanned UFO, sending it crashing to the ground in a fireball. Just then, the alien stood back up, now mutated into the creature Orga due to its inability to control Godzilla's DNA. Godzilla immediately attacked Orga, but discovered the creature's healing factor was far more advanced than his own. Godzilla tried to blast Orga with his atomic breath, but Orga telepathically summoned the remnants of his UFO, using it to absorb the blast. With the UFO completely destroyed, Godzilla fired his atomic breath at Orga again, causing the beast to be consumed in flames. To Godzilla's surprise, Orga emerged from the fire and began walking toward him, with his gruesome injuries healing in a matter of seconds. Orga bit Godzilla and began draining his DNA, causing him to become covered in green Godzilla-like scales. Godzilla realized that Orga was trying to absorb more of his DNA in order to repair his damaged DNA matrix and become a clone of him. When Orga unhinged his jaw and opened his mouth wide, Godzilla ran headfirst into his maw. Orga began swallowing Godzilla whole, sprouting huge purple dorsal fins on his back. As Orga consumed Godzilla, Godzilla began glowing hot orange and giving off heat. When Orga realized his situation, it was too late as Godzilla unleashed an atomic shockwave that obliterated Orga's entire upper body. Godzilla roared at Orga's headless corpse, which collapsed forward and crumbled to dust. Godzilla then approached a rooftop where several people, including Shinoda and Katagiri were standing. Katagiri refused to move, and lit a cigarette as he remarked he had never seen Godzilla that close before. Katagiri looked up at Godzilla and screamed his name, as Godzilla destroyed the rooftop and sent Katagiri falling to his death. Godzilla turned and walked away, unleashing his atomic breath in a fiery swath across the city. As Godzilla rampaged through Tokyo, Miyasaka remarked that humanity created Godzilla, and ever since has tried to destroy him. Yuki Ichinose, a reporter, questioned why Godzilla kept protecting them despite this fact, with Shinoda answering it was because Godzilla was inside each one of them.

Abilities

Atomic Breath

Godzilla fires his atomic breath

As with other incarnations of Godzilla, this Godzilla's signature ability is his atomic breath. This Godzilla's atomic breath is unique in that, rather than being a whitish mist or blue beam, it is a fiery orange color. This version of Godzilla's atomic breath appears to be more incendiary in nature than previous versions, producing a fiery explosion whenever it is used. Whenever Godzilla charges his atomic breath, his dorsal fins glow orange and give off intense heat.

Nuclear Pulse

Godzilla uses his nuclear pulse to destroy Orga

This Godzilla possesses what appears to be a variation of the Heisei Godzilla's nuclear pulse ability. This ability is seen only once in the film, when Orga attempts to swallow Godzilla whole. Godzilla's dorsal fins begin to glow and give off heat, then the rest of his body begins to do the same. Godzilla then unleashes a fiery shockwave of atomic energy from all directions, obliterating Orga.

Durability

Organizer G-1, the secret to Godzilla's durability

One of the most distinctive traits of this Godzilla is his durability. This version of Godzilla possesses a substance called Organizer G-1 (or Regenerator G-1 in the American version) in his cells, which is the key to his uncanny durability. Organizer G-1 allows Godzilla's cells and tissues to heal completely over a matter of hours with no scar tissue, even when they are not attached to his body. This is demonstrated when some of Godzilla's skin is blasted off by Full Metal Missiles, and recovered by Yuji Shinoda. When Shinoda examines the skin samples under a microscope, he discovers that all damage to them has been healed. By this logic, Shinoda hypothesizes that Godzilla holds the secret to immortality.

The Millennian aliens attempted to exploit Godzilla's durability in order to take on a form capable of surviving and thriving in the Earth's atmosphere. The Millennians used their UFO to restrain Godzilla and drain his Organizer G-1, then took on a collective form and incorporated the Organizer G-1 into it. However, the Millennian could not withstand the volatile properties of the Organizer G-1, and mutated into Orga. Despite being deformed and corrupted, Orga did gain a potent healing factor, potentially more effective than Godzilla's, that allowed him to heal any and all injuries almost instantaneously. However, Orga's healing factor did not appear to be as perfect as Godzilla's, as the monster's shoulder cannon was not present when he regenerated his shoulder after Godzilla's atomic breath damaged it.

Intelligence

Godzilla displays a fair degree of intelligence during his battle with Orga, which allows him to overcome his foe. When Orga instantly heals from all damage Godzilla has inflicted on him and attempts to swallow Godzilla whole, Godzilla lets him do so, giving Godzilla the opportunity to destroy Orga from within using a shockwave of atomic energy.

Weaknesses

Like all incarnations of Godzilla, the Godzilla from Godzilla 2000: Millennium is immune to conventional human weaponry. Godzilla is injured by the Full Metal Missiles, experimental armor-piercing missiles specifically designed to penetrate Godzilla's armored skin. However, the injury is not serious, and Godzilla's healing factor allows him to quickly recover from the damage. The Millennian UFO's laser cannon also appears to be effective against Godzilla, at one point blasting him directly into the ocean and forcing him to retreat.

Godzilla 2000 Bio

"Godzilla is the most powerful of Earth's Defenders. Godzilla lives beneath the ocean's waves, slumbering until he is called upon to face some fearsome threat. Although he has often defended the Earth from aliens, mutants, and other external threats, Godzilla has never included "humans" in the list of things he deliberately protects. To the contrary, it is often human folly that arouses Godzilla's ire. Because of this fact, the Global Defense Force considers Godzilla to be an extremely dangerous potential adversary. Godzilla uses his atomic fire to destroy most threats from a distance, but has proved to be a fearsome hand-to-hand combatant, especially when he can bring his powerful tail into play. Godzilla's most mysterious ability may be his uncanny sixth sense, which always gives him time to travel to exactly where he needs to be."

Trivia

  • This is the first incarnation of Godzilla in a film to actually be green in color. Godzilla has traditionally been depicted as being green on posters and in numerous official non-film media, but his skin color in the films had always been a charcoal gray at the time of Godzilla 2000: Millennium's release. In addition, this is the first incarnation of Godzilla in a film whose atomic breath is the color of fire, while he has often been shown breathing literal fire on posters and in non-film media.
  • It is sometimes assumed that this incarnation of Godzilla reappeared in the second film of the Millennium series, Godzilla vs. Megaguirus, due to possessing the same design and numerous other similar characteristics. However, that is a different incarnation of Godzilla, as Godzilla vs. Megaguirus is set in a separate continuity from Godzilla 2000: Millennium.
  • It is often mistakenly believed that this Godzilla is meant to be the adult Godzilla Junior, who was shown being revived as an adult and taking his father's place at the end of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. This is untrue, as Godzilla 2000: Millennium is a direct sequel to the original 1954 film, and is not connected to the Heisei series. This incarnation of Godzilla is described by Godzilla.jp, Toho's official website for the Godzilla series, as the second Godzilla to appear in the film's continuity, after the 1954 Godzilla, while Godzilla Junior was the third Godzilla in the Heisei continuity.

It probably was a different way because the color difference. If he got it the same way the atomic breath would probably be the same color. Realistically speaking.

Also if you watch the scene when Myasaka and Shinoda examine the cell with the electron microscope they damage the cell to watch its reaction and the cell fully healed within 2 seconds. I mean watch that scene if you don’t believe me. That scene is proof that the healing speed of Godzilla’s regeneration is mere seconds not hours. You’re using that one line where Shinoda said the picture were taken hours apart as a basis to your facts when that scene is irrelevant when just because the photos were taken hours apart doesn’t mean the cells took that long to regenerate. He wasn’t even paying attention to the cells that long for that to even be true. Sorry but the Electron Microscope scene tells the true fact about Godzilla’s healing speed.

I mean watch it and see for yourself. Also I can’t wait to hear what other BS excuse you pull out your butts.

If all of Godzilla's cells could regenerate simultaneously at that speed, they would have done so before Shinoda even picked up the skin sample. Instead, he photographs damaged cells the night after the battle.

Like... if Godzilla was regrowing the pieces of skin blasted off of him by the Full Metal Missiles within seconds, Shinoda wouldn't need to analyze cells to realize that he had extraordinary healing capabilities. He would have just watched it happen, or heard about it from Yuki and Io, who had front-row seats with binoculars and a camera in tow. And I really can't stress this enough: we would have also seen it happen, since the filmmakers demonstrably had the VFX capabilities to show a kaiju regenerate.

Enough.

Again the whole special FX excuse doesn’t validate the argument. Remember they only used it on Orga due to a low budget. LOL Wow. Can’t keep falling back on that one. And Godzilla’s fast regeneration doesn’t prevent the skin from falling off. Even if a piece falls off Godzilla can still regenerate quickly. So don’t even try using that excuse either. And the electron microscope scene showed that the cells could heal faster than an hours and judging by the scene’s time frame it was 2-3 seconds that the cell in the microscope healed. Not hours. So that hours healing speed has been debunked. You said what’s on the film is fact right? Well guess what... that scene proves my facts. Again you lost just get over it and accept you are wrong.

Ok I have to ask... why would it say that Godzilla’s cells heal within an hour when clearly in the movie it’s shown to be much faster? I mean Godzilla’s wounds healed much faster than an hour after being hit by multiple full metal missiles. And you just put that Godzilla can quickly heal after being hit by them. An hour is not quickly. In fact that much longer.

Godzilla has healed within seconds not an hour. Unless you meant the single cell samples Shinoda found took hours to heal then that understandable. But Godzilla himself has healed much faster than hours. Seconds at least. In fact on the plot synopses of Godzilla 2000: Millennium you guy out that Godzilla can “almost instantly” regenerate. “Almost Instanly” is seconds fast. Not hours fast. Idk but I feel this bio contradicts his healing facts.

Will you please stop commenting about wanting us to exaggerate Godzilla's feats and powers? We're a wiki and an objective information source that goes by exactly what is said in the movies and official resources, and not what fans interpret because they want Godzilla to seem hilariously overpowered and immortal. In the movie we don't ever see Godzilla instantaneously heal from the full-metal missiles. They visibly injure him, Shinoda later recovers some of his discarded flesh, he analyzes it, and determines Godzilla can completely heal in a matter of hours with no scar tissue. By scientific standards, it is basically "instant" and complete healing, and in Shinoda's words "a remarkable healing speed." Orga gained the ability to heal faster than Godzilla by absorbing Organizer G1, but his healing isn't perfect like Godzilla's is.

How is it exaggerating?! Godzilla had to have healed instantaneously after those full metal missiles cuz they were hitting him constantly and yet his skin was full healed a scene later and there was no way that was hours apart. That was seconds apart. So he had to have healed within seconds after the they dealt damage. Otherwise he would have been dead. Also the cells may have taken hours due to their size and lack of radiation since Godzilla’s full body possesses more radiation which if you recall they stated that his cells heal based on his radioactive properties. If the cells took hours to heal then Godzilla would have been dead. Cuz he was hit Buy a barrage of Fullmetal missiles which keep in mind they are not only penetrating his body but the exploding inside his body as well and the fact that he’s being hit continuously and yet he still alive means that his regeneration factor is healing him within seconds afte Buy a barrage of Fullmetal missiles which keep in mind they are not only penetrating his body but the exploding inside his body as well and the fact that he’s being hit continuously and yet he still alive means that his regeneration factor is healing him within seconds after each time he was hit.

Judging by the time frame of the scenes Godzilla was taking punishment from the missiles and afterwards he has shown no sign of damage in scenes after he took those hits. And judging by the time frame of the scene those were seconds after he was hit meaning he healed within seconds after getting blasted by those full metal missiles. And when Shinoda was saying the cells took hours to heal he meant the cell individually due to the fact the cells are smaller and lack the amount of radiation Godzilla’s whole body possesses. As Miyasaka said that his healing/regeneration is based on his radioactive properties. Meaning his radiation is the source and due to the lack of radiation in the cells it takes the cells longer to heal unlike Godzilla’s body which has far more radiation which speeds up the healing process much faster. And none of this is head canon and the film seems to point this out in a way.

I mean Heisei Goji, and various others have always had combat-effective healing factors. Heisei Goji did against Biollante, SpaceGodzilla (even though the Rodan amp enhanced it) and Destroyah (despite the burning form enhancing it much much further).

MireGoji’s healing speed is at least seconds faster than the cells individually. Cuz like I stated the only reason the cells individually took hours to heal was due to the lack amount of radiation which is the source of his healing. As Miyasaka stated in both dubs. And Godzilla’s body has way more radiation than one cell could have. More radiation means faster healing. Think really hard about this.

If anything the only continuity error is the Burning Godzilla issue.

But hey that’s a continuity error. LMAO

The definition of a healing factor is to heal all injuries leaving no scars what so ever. Burning Godzilla’s only limit to his healing factor is not being able to heal fast enough to survive his meltdown which is slowly killing him at a molecular level. His cells or molecules were breaking down.

The cells Shinoda found were small and lacked enough radiation to heal as fast as Godzilla’s whole body can do. Godzilla’s body has more than enough radiation that makes him heal faster. But you guys out on here that he was able to quickly heal after getting damaged. Quickly is faster than 1 hour. I mean really now. LMAO Again Miyasaka was correct weather he knew or not. After all it makes far more sense than anything else.

Also for your information when I said “TWO DUBS” I was referring to the English and Japanese dub. I never heard of nor seen the Hong Kong dub. LMAO

But Godzilla sense the Heisei era has always had combat-effective healing factor. That’s what makes Godzilla so damn near impossible to kill. His durability is not the only reason. Now I’m not saying he can’t be killed at all cuz I won’t say he is invincible. But he as a whole has survived things on insane levels. I mean Godzilla has only died from molecular level methods like the oxygen destroyer or the meltdown. Godzilla can only be killed at a molecular level or if you syphon his energy like in Final wars. But physical attacks can’t kill him.

"The Japanese dub." That's... not what a dub is. You wouldn't say "the English dub of Avengers: Infinity War." Oh well, worth a shot. You seem to be more interested in your pet theories than reading anything I type, so this is where I leave you.

Yeah, sorry, but no. It is a pet theory. None of it is based upon actual evidence and only upon your silly observations. The film itself and official sources shoots your theory down dead.

Excuse me while I sigh at the toxic usage of the word 'bro' and your constant patronising use of 'LMAO' in all-caps.

No, what you interpret from the movie is not fact. What official sources and the movie itself actually says, however, is fact.

Films back then just seemed to have a thing for using the year 2000 in their titles. Pokemon: The Movie 2000 did it too and that also came out in 1999, though I believe it didn't have the 2000 in the title in Japan.

The first Godzilla incarnation to actually be green, and also the star of a great film to kick the Millennium era off.

It's very strange to think about the fact that the Godzilla coming from the movie called "Godzilla 2000" is actually from 1999, and then the unrelated vs. Megaguirus Godzilla is actually from the year 2000 but is completely unrelated to this one.
