First appearance Godzilla vs. Gigan

Godzilla Tower (ゴジラタワー,   Gojira Tawā) was the main attraction at World Children's Land and the base of operations of the M Space Hunter Nebula Aliens in Godzilla vs. Gigan.

Design

The Godzilla Tower is made to resemble Godzilla, however, the skin texture of the tower has a more simplistic pattern, the eyes are larger and appear more cartoonish, and the dorsal spines are more pointed and dagger-like. The top of the head is also more flat, and lacks Godzilla's defined brow.

History

Showa Series

Godzilla vs. Gigan

The Godzilla Tower served as the primary base of operations of the group of M Space Hunter Nebula Aliens that were stationed on Earth. The tower was intended to be the centerpiece of the amusement park, World's Children's Land, a park built to bring the world to "absolute peace." The tower was being built with the intent of having an exhibit of past, present, and future monsters. The tower would also have an elevator that would take tourists to the top of the tower, Godzilla's head, where there would be an observation deck and a space observatory. When Machiko Shima's brother, Takashi, discovered his employers' true intention, he was captured and held in the tower as prisoner. When Gengo Kotaka and Tomoko Tomoe attempted to rescue him, they were captured themselves, and caught a glimpse of the Nebulans' true forms, which resembled gigantic cockroaches. The Nebulans intended to keep them alive to serve as "uniforms" for more of their comrades that would arrive later. The Nebulans used the tower to control Gigan and King Ghidorah and summoned the monsters to Earth to attack Tokyo. As Godzilla and Anguirus arrived to battle the space monsters, the Nebulans' prisoners managed to escape with the assistance of Machiko and Shosaku Takasugi. However, the Nebulans had equipped the tower with a giant laser beam, that would fire from the tower's mouth, mimicking Godzilla's atomic breath. They used it to destroy the human's getaway car, but thankfully, the group predicted the car would be destroyed, and set it to drive off without a driver to serve as a distraction while they hid in the bushes. The group then fled on foot to report the situation to the JSDF. As the battle between the kaiju drew closer to the park, Godzilla was puzzled by the tower bearing his likeness. The Tower opened fire, using its laser beam to injure and pin down Godzilla. Anguirus attempted to aid Godzilla, but Gigan and King Ghidorah stood in his way. Gengo and his allies then arrived along with a team of JSDF soldiers, who placed explosives in the tower's elevator. To hide the explosives, they placed Gengo's large drawing of themselves armed with guns, to give the illusion of them standing in the elevator. As the elevator climbed up the tower, the Nebulans prepared to open fire when it reached the top floor. When the doors opened, the guards opened fire and set off the explosives hidden behind the drawing. The resulting explosion destroyed the tower's head, the laser beam, and the Nebulans' control room. As the Nebulans' leaders Kubota and Fumio Sudo lay pinned under debris, they reverted into their true forms and pondered how their plan went wrong. With the destruction of the control room, Gigan and King Ghidorah ceased receiving orders from their alien masters, and were briefly stunned. However, Gigan soon began to recover, and began brutally attacking Godzilla while he was still down from the Tower's continuous assault, continuing until Godzilla finally managed to get to his feet. With the battle now turned in Godzilla and Anguirus' favor, the remainder of the tower was later destroyed when King Ghidorah slammed Godzilla into it.

Weapons

The Godzilla Tower has a powerful laser gun mounted in its mouth, meant to emulate Godzilla's atomic breath. This beam has the power to cause cause large explosions, and even proved capable of injuring Godzilla.
