Gojira-kun (ゴジラくん,   Gojirakun, lit. Mr. Godzilla) is a 1985 video game developed by Toho for the MSX. The game is notable for featuring chibi versions of the Godzilla monsters, in a similar manner to Bandai's Godzilland merchandise line. Compile developed a sequel to this game, Gojira-kun: Kaiju Daikoshin, for the Nintendo Game Boy in 1990.



The game features the following monsters, each with one special ability:

  • Godzilla (Player) - Can push rocks. Can defeat enemies with one punch (except Hedorah and King Ghidorah).
  • Baragon - Powerful puncher.
  • Anguirus - Runs very fast when on the same level as Godzilla.
  • Rodan - Flies behind you through the screen. Can't die of water.
  • Hedorah - Immune to punching.
  • Mechagodzilla - Fast puncher.
  • King Ghidorah - Appears when Godzilla takes too long to clear a level, flies, and is completely invulnerable.
  • Minilla - Found by destroying a boulder in the game's final level.


Game Mode

Godzilla can move left and right and climb up and down vines. There are three ways to defend yourself: punching your enemies, making them fall in water, or dropping rocks on them. The objective of every level is to destroy all the rocks. When the last rock is destroyed, a timer power-up will appear. If you grab it, all enemies will stop moving for a few seconds. Go through a door after getting the timer and you advance to the next level.

Edit Mode

In this mode, you create your own levels, or "scenes." You can choose to edit the screen, select a screen, save a scene, load a scene, verify a scene, copy a scene or test play.

  • According to hidden data in the game, Gojira-kun was originally titled Godzilland, but Toho decided to change the title at the last moment.[1] In addition, the game's cover art even features the "Godzilland" logo.
