Metphies to Mulu-Elu Galu-Gu (GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters)

The Mechagodzilla (メカゴジラ,   Mekagojira?) from the GODZILLA anime trilogy is a mecha created by Toho that first appeared in the 2017 anime Godzilla film, GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters.

The fourth distinct onscreen incarnation of Mechagodzilla, the anime Mechagodzilla was constructed in secret by the Bilusaludo and humans in Japan in the year 2046, only to be lost in the final battle between the United Earth and Godzilla in March of that year.[2]

Name

Mechagodzilla's name comes from the word "mecha," which is derived from "mechanical," and from another monster, Godzilla (ゴジラ,   Gojira?). In the English subtitles for GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters on Netflix, its name is spelled as Mecha-Godzilla.

Design

The anime Mechagodzilla's design is radically different from that of previous incarnations of the character. While it appears to retain the basic body shape of Godzilla, being bulky and bipedal with large metal structures resembling dorsal plates running down its back, this Mechagodzilla is covered in very large spikes that seem to be unevenly distributed across its body. Its armor bears a very segmented and uneven appearance. The most radical departure in this Mechagodzilla's design is its head, which does not resemble Godzilla's very much at all. Its head is relatively flat and elongated, with two large spikes protruding from its upper jaw. It appears to have one smaller spike jutting from the center of its lower jaw, and a very small mouth which is not immediately visible. Mechagodzilla's head is segmented like the rest of its body, and has smaller pointed spikes protruding from its cheeks and in front of its eyes. Mechagodzilla's eyes are relatively small glowing red slits located on the sides of its head. Mechagodzilla seems to be a bluish-silver color over the entirety of its body.

Origins

Mechagodzilla was constructed in secret in the year 2046 by the Bilusaludo and humanity in Hamamatsu, Japan using "Nanometal," a special metal with "autonomous thinking abilities," with the intention of it being the ultimate anti-Godzilla weapon. Unfortunately, as Godzilla began to approach Hamamatsu in March of that year, the completed Mechagodzilla wouldn't activate. Before the Bilusaludo scientists in the facility could determine the cause of the issue, Godzilla breached the city and engaged in a final decisive battle with the United Earth. When the fourth armored wall of the plant was destroyed, the Bilusaludo began to evacuate. One of them, Mulu-Elu Galu-Gu, insisted that Mechagodzilla could defeat Godzilla if activated, but was forced to evacuate. Godzilla was triumphant in the ensuing battle with the United Earth's forces, and Mechagodzilla was abandoned. The United Earth then organized an Earth evacuation plan after their latest defeat.[2]
