Godzilla (ゴジラ,   Gojira) is a giant monster who appears in the 2023 animated television series Chibi Godzilla Raids Again as the father of Chibi Godzilla. He resides on Monster Island.

Name

Chibi Godzilla typically addresses Godzilla as "dad" (お父さん,   otō-san). However, in the first episode, Chibi Godzilla called him by his English name while trying to get his attention, pronouncing it with a Japanese accent like Gajjīra (ガッジーラ). Upon first seeing Godzilla, Chibi Mechagodzilla recognized him as Daikaijū Gojira (大怪獣ゴジラ), which the English subtitles on the GODZILLA OFFICIAL by TOHO YouTube channel translate as "mighty monster, Godzilla." Daikaijū is otherwise typically translated as "giant monster."

Design

Godzilla appears similar to the Heisei Godzilla in Chibi Godzilla Raids Again's opening, though he sports a more nonspecific, cartoony design in the show itself.

History

Chibi Godzilla Raids Again

"Chibi Godzilla of Monster Island"

Shortly after introducing himself to newcomer Chibi Mechagodzilla on Monster Island, Chibi Godzilla spotted his father in the distance. Chibi Godzilla called out to him to no avail before confiding in Chibi Mechagodzilla that he dreamed of growing up to become a big monster so his father could hug him without crushing him.

"The Ruler of the Skies, Chibi Rodan"

Chibi Godzilla led Chibi Mechagodzilla and Chibi Mothra on a hike up a mountain in the hopes of speaking with his father, though their planned trip was derailed by the appearance of the narcissistic Chibi Rodan.

"Monster Study Session"

Chibi Godzilla taught a monster study session for the chibi kaiju of Monster Island, asking various questions such as what foe was hardest for Godzilla to defeat (with the answer being "sunlight in the summer"), or what made Godzilla want to go home ("when he bursts out of the ocean facing the wrong way").

"The Sage of Grudges, Chibi Hedorah"

While attempting to justify his hatred of humans, Chibi Hedorah revealed that when giant monsters such as Godzilla attacked, trains and planes still ran like normal instead of evacuating, which Chibi Mechagodzilla conceded to be a justifiable criticism against humanity.

"A Mighty Monster's Instinct"

While hanging out with the other chibi monsters of Monster Island, Chibi Godzilla sneezed, scorching the top of Chibi Mechagodzilla's head with atomic breath before unexpectedly roaring like his father. The others took this as a sign that Chibi Godzilla was reaching puberty and would soon grow big and strong like his father; however, these oddities later proved to be nothing more than the symptoms of a cold.
