Godzilla (ゴジラ,   Gojira) is a kaiju who briefly appears in the 2007 Toho film Always: Sunset on Third Street 2.

Name

See also: Godzilla#Name.

Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ), comes from a combination of the Japanese approximation of "gorilla" (ゴリラ,   gorira), and kujira (クジラ), the Japanese word for "whale."

Always: Sunset on Third Street 2 director Takashi Yamazaki gave this version of Godzilla the name Third Street Godzilla (三丁目ゴジラ,   Sanchōme Gojira).[1]

Design

The Third Street Godzilla design was based directly on the GMKGoji, being modeled after sculptor Syunsuke Niwa's garage kit of the GMKGoji.[1] His skin is gray, with white dorsal plates, nails and eyes, similar to the GMKGoji's. His legs are very spread apart, and he has a thick neck and a long tail, which has a small amount of dorsal plates running along its top. Godzilla has a small number of fang-like teeth, with a short tongue and overbite which where compared to that of a dog by Yamazaki. He is hunched over starting at the shoulders.

History

Heisei era

Always: Sunset on Third Street 2

Godzilla attacked Tokyo in one of Ryunosuke Chagawa's stories, destroying the Tokyo Tower with his atomic breath, and wiping out Norifumi Suzuki's dealership, much to Suzuki's chagrin. Suzuki challenged Godzilla for destroying his business, and Godzilla roared back. A young boy named Junnosuke interrupted Chagawa, telling him that Godzilla was already a real character and so couldn't be used in the story, so the author started from scratch.

Abilities

Atomic breath

Godzilla fired a blast of blue atomic breath at Tokyo Tower, cutting it in half.

Tail
