Genre Manga

Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (ゴジラVSメカゴジラ,   Gojira tai Mekagojira) is a 1993 manga adaptation of the film of the same name published by Shogakukan.

Plot

The manga follows the plot of its film counterpart reasonably closely, but deviates at several points.

The manga contains much more graphic violence, with Godzilla suffering from near-torture against Mechagodzilla during the first fight, including having his eyes ruptured and his dorsal plates torn in half. Mechagodzilla is also given a variety of new abilities, including a powerful move in which he fires his arms at Godzilla after the G-Crusher fails. In the final battle, Mecha-King Ghidorah's programming takes over Mechagodzilla and it attempts to brutally kill Godzilla, despite G-Force wanting to capture Godzilla alive. After Godzilla is revived by Fire Rodan, Mechagodzilla attempts to attach itself to Godzilla and self-destruct.

Trivia

  • Mechagodzilla has many differences from its film counterpart in this manga. It has a long, sharp spike erupting out of its forehead. It also lacks a plasma grenade. In addition, the Garuda lacks its masers, instead opting for two traditional cannons, and can release a hail of grappling cables that are similar to Mechagodzilla's shock anchors.
  • In this manga, Mechagodzilla overrides its programming and turns against its human masters. Something similar occurs in the 2002 film Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla. While in this manga Mechagodzilla goes out of control when Mecha-King Ghidorah's programming takes over, in the later film Kiryu goes berserk after it becomes possessed by the spirit of the original Godzilla.
