Machine G (マシーン ,   Mashīn Jī) is a G Team mecha which first appeared in Kodansha's Godzilla, King of the Monsters manga.

Name

Machine G's name comes from "Machine" and "G," which can come from either Godzilla or the "G" in Machine G's creators, G Team.

Design

Machine G is a sleek Mechagodzilla which looks unlike any that preceded or followed it, and draws on aspects of other popular Japanese robots such as the Dragonzord and Mazinger Z. It has a long, almost canine-like head with a massive black spike erupting out of it, and a gem in its forehead. He also has spikes running down the back of his neck, but lacks the dorsal plates of other Mechagodzillas. He has powerful arms and large shoulders, and the top half of his body appears to be heavier than the lower half. His tail, arms, legs, feet, chest and groin are all protected by thick black armour. Machine G also possesses a set of wings on his back that fold out when required.

History

Godzilla, King of the Monsters

After Doctor Oniyama released King Godzilla and defeated Godzilla by dropping the kaiju king onto a set of spikes, Miki Kaneko, Yosuke Kaneko and Linda Miller realised they would have to fight alone. It was then that Yosuke revealed G-Team's greatest weapon, being Machine G! The three humans piloted the Mechagodzilla into battle against King Godzilla, and seemed to have the upper hand. Machine G used his Twin Maser Cannon Hands to deal devastating damage on King Godzilla, only for the hybrid kaiju to reveal an additional component; His Neo Biollante head, which was formed after Machine G damaged King Godzilla's chest.

Machine G was quickly overpowered and knocked down by King Godzilla, who proceeded to attempt to crush the mecha's head. Before this could happen, the battle was interrupted by Godzilla, who had returned to the fight after being revived by a lightning bolt. Godzilla quickly retalliated against King Godzilla, giving Machine G time to make an escape. With Machine G's weapons incapacitated, the three humans could only watch as Godzilla destroyed King Godzilla's Neo Biollante head, then hurled himself into the mouth of an active Volcano while grappling with King Godzilla, sacrificing himself to take down King Godzilla and Oniyama.
