"The Godzilla Who Came on Christmas Eve!" (メリゴジ ゴジラが聖夜 (せいや)にやってきたの (まき),   Merigoji Gojira ga Seiya ni Yattekita no Maki, lit. "Volume of: Merry Godzi - The Godzilla Who Came on Christmas Eve) is the twentieth overall episode of Godziban and the eleventh episode of its Go! Go! Godzilla-kun segment, though it also incorporates characters from the Attention! Godzilla and Grandpa Hedo segments. Toho's Godzilla Channel uploaded it to YouTube on December 24, 2019, with an English-subtitled version on the GODZILLA OFFICIAL by TOHO channel following on January 7, 2022. It was released on Blu-ray and DVD in Japan on December 21, 2022, which was promoted through a limited theatrical run of the Godziban home video release's contents at Cinema Neko in Ome from December 16th through the 29th.


Godzilla-kun reads to Minilla and Little about Christmas, a holiday celebrated in the human world, and Little desires to actually meet Santa Claus. They go visit Grandpa Zilla to see if he knows Santa, and he reveals that he is one of many Santa Clauses, placed in charge of kids who like monsters. The three brothers agree to help him, loading up his sleigh and dressing up as Santas, with Anguirus and Baragon acting as reindeer. As they travel to Japan, they stop to retrieve Kamachi, a young member of their family trapped in the human world after falling through a space-time distortion. He has befriended a girl who is keeping him as a pet in an abandoned building. Visiting him on Christmas Eve, she finds him grey and motionless, having grown sick while living in the human world, and carries his body through the streets, weeping. The Three Godzilla Brothers and Grandpa Zilla appear before her. Grandpa Zilla uses his staff to revive Kamachi, who grows to the girl's size. They take Kamachi with them after a tearful goodbye, but leave her with a golden present. Continuing their journey, they teleport down to children's bedrooms to leave more presents, helped by Grandpa Hedo and Young Hedo. Later, the girl reveals her present: a Kamachi keychain.
