Minecraft is a sandbox video game released by Mojang in 2009. Although the game itself has no references to the Godzilla franchise, its modding community has created detailed mods featuring Godzilla monsters.
The Godzilla Mod, made by Tihyo, is centered around Godzilla. It currently has ten types of monsters: Godzilla, Kiryu, King Ghidorah, Burning Godzilla, Dorats, King Kong, Rodan, Mothra (Imago and Larva), Battra (Imago and Larva) and Skeleturtle. The mod is based directly off the franchise, for example, the most effective way to kill the monsters is through the use of the Oxygen Destroyer or Oxygen Launcher, a rocket launcher that uses the Oxygen Destroyer as ammo (Note: The Oxygen launcher was removed in the Mothra Update). Other, less effective ways, include weapons and armor made from the remains of the Kaiju, Kiryu (note: Kiryu was removed in the Mothra Update), Rocket Launchers and Grenades. There are currently plans to add more monsters. The aim of the mod is to translate creatures from the Godzilla franchise to Minecraft in the form of difficult bosses for challenge seeking players and/or fans. The mod is currently under a rewrite and will feature brand new graphics and gameplay in upcoming versions.
In this mod, Godzilla possesses his signature Atomic Breath, which cause an explosion and large fields of fire. He has 10,000 points of health, and deals 1,000 points of damage, enough to kill the player in one hit, as the unmodded Minecraft player has 20 points. He is very difficult to kill as he regenerates 30 points of health every half-second, takes no fall damage, is resistant to knockback, has high defense and can knock the player high into the air where fall damage can kill them, he is also immune to fire damage. He now spawns in the Ocean. He previously resembled the original design for Godzilla but now resembles MogeGoji. When defeated he drops vast amounts of experience like all the other mobs and also G cells (used to make Kiryu and the G-Armor, currently the strongest armor in Minecraft and it gives the player Regeneration), Godzilla bones (also used for Kiryu) and the Godzilla Skull (used in Kiryu but also a placeable trophy).
Kiryu was the second monster added into the mod, and is the first craftable and tameable Kaiju. He was removed in version 1.6 but should come back in version 1.7. He is respectively crafted with Godzilla bones, G-Cells, Titanium (added by the mod) and microchips. When he dies, he causes a potion effect that will harm any monster that is in the vicinity. He takes no fall damage. He can be tamed with a Tech Panel and when destroyed drops some of his parts in damaged forms to be repaired. Previously, when defeated he caused an area effect that slowly killed all mobs, even Godzilla but that has been replaced with the Absolute Zero Cannon, which does the same, provided he gets a chance to use it. Kiryu has 10,000 health points (12,000 when tamed) and an attack damage of 400 (450 when tamed). He was removed in v1.6, the Mothra update supposedly for model and AI changes.
King Ghidorah is the third monster added to the mod and one of the most powerful. He can summon lightning, fly, and knock the player away and into the air. When at 2,000 health and below it will run away. Its A.I. had been redone so that he will attack anything not wearing the Xilien armor set. When defeated it drops Ghidorah Scales which can be used to craft the Ghidorah set (let's the player fly) and the Ghidorah Scepter (second strongest melee weapon in the mod and can summon lightning). Its design is mostly based off of 1991 King Ghidorah, although it draw some elements from other designs as well. He previously spawned in the End but now he spawns on Planet X, he can also spawn in hill biomes with enough luck. Ghidorah has 15,000 hit points and attack damage of 800.
Burning Godzilla is the strongest monster in the mod and as of the official release of Orespawn's Queen, the strongest mob in all of Minecraft. Besides being a stronger version of Godzilla (he has a 2,500 attack damage, 12000hp and regenerates at 50 points every half second) to replicate the film version in Minecraft, Burning Godzilla has a "radiation effect" that sets everything within a certain radius around him on fire and immediately poisons players and mobs. His atomic breath also does more damage, leaving massive and deep craters. Since the 1.6 version of the mod is completely immune to the Oxygen Destroyer, and since the 1.6.5 version now can go into meltdown state (if he is below 2500hp, and isn't killed within 30 seconds - he will explode, destroying everything around him). Even with the G-Set on, a Potion of Fire Resistance, a Golden Apple (which also gives the power of regeneration) and the G-Sword (2,500 attack damage) the player is not likely to succeed, it is so dangerous that its Difficulty rating on the official Mod Website (A system out of 10 points) ranked it 10.5, while Godzilla and King Ghidorah scored a full ten. Burning Godzilla spawns in the fiery dimension of the Nether, the Extreme Hills biome, and mainly the ocean. Burning Godzilla has the same total health as normal Godzilla but a much higher defense. It is directly based off of the DesuGoji Godzilla design.
These were added in the same update as Burning Godzilla. They can be tamed with an Xilien Handlink device, which can be crafted or found in crashed spaceships. They are not hostile, but three can be crafted into a King Ghidorah summoning item with the Xilien Workbench. With 10 Health (30 when tamed) and 5 attack damage (8 when tamed) it is the weakest mob in the game (its difficulty rating is 0/10 on the Mod website). They can also fly and can be found in hills, jungles, plains and forests.
Xiliens were added in the same update as Burning Godzilla and the Dorats. Despite being aliens, they are the first non-kaiju mobs added to the mod. Xiliens are hostile towards players and can be found only in the Burnt Grassland (a new biome added by the mod) or Planet X. Xiliens have 50 points of health, deal around 13 points of damage, have decent defense and walk as fast as the player. They also can see players from very far away and when they see the player, they will run towards him, trying to kill him. They are based on their appearance in Invasion of Astro-Monster. They are also meant to spawn on Planet X which is meant to be reached using the Xilien Hand Device. Upon dying they drop all or parts of their armor set. When the player wears this King Ghidorah will not attack them.
King Kong is the first mammalian kaiju in the mod. King Kong spawns in the Jungle and Forest Hills biome. He has 9500 health points and does 850 damage. King Kong suffers no fall damage, has knockback resistance, high defense and agility, can destroy blocks, has the ability to climb over obstacles and is super charged by lightning, at which point his power increases and he can call down further lightning bolts. King Kong is based on the 1962 King Kong.
Rodan is one of the most recent mobs in the the game. He was added in the Mothra Update, along with Mothra, Skeleturtle, and Battra. He has 8750 health points and inflicts 1000 damage. He has a defense point of 18, and has the ability to fly at incredible speeds. He has a hurricane wind attack, takes no fall damage, is immune to fire, destroys terrain, and has knockback resistance. Upon dying will drop his scales, which can be used to craft a set of armor (allows flight). Rodan is based on the 2004 Rodan.
Mothra is now added to the Godzilla mod on the newest update. Mothra has 8500 health and a defense of 20. Mothra's abilities include: hurricane wind attack antenna rays, lightning attack, poison powder attack, and flight. Mothra takes no fall damage and no fire Damage. Mothra is also rideable. Mothra has high defense and knockback resistance. Mothra has 700 attack damage and has a difficulty of 10/10. Mothra's design for the mod is a combination of all the previous Mothra designs.
Mothra's Larva stage was also added into the mod. It can hatch from the Mothra Egg (which can be found on Infant Island). It can't take fall damage, fire damage, doesn't suffer knockback, has 4500 health, 650 attack damage, 12 points of defense and can shoot the stream of web from it's mouth. Like the adult Mothra it can be ridden.
Along with Mothra, Battra was also added into the mod. He has 7000 points of health, 500 attack damage and defense of 16. His abilities include Hurricane Wind Attack, Prism Beams and Flight. He takes no fall damage, no fire damage, can destroy terrain and has knockback resistance. Upon death he will drop Battra shards, which can be used to craft the set of armor (allows flight) and a scepter (deals 850 damage and inflicts negative potion effects). He can be found in Cold Taiga biome.
Battra's Larva stage was added into the mod. He has 4500 health, attack damage of 875 and 12 defense points. He can fire Prism Beams from his horn and, just like the adult Battra, is resistant to fall damage, fire damage, can destroy terrain and has knockback resistance. Once defeated, he will drop his shells, which can be used to craft a set of armor and he can also drop pieces of his horn, which can be used to craft a Battra Sword (450 damage an applies weakness). He can also be found in Cold Taiga Biome.
Skeleturtle was added alongside Mothra, Battra and Rodan. They are neutral towards the player, and will not attack unless provoked. They are also the mod's second weakest Kaiju, and drop bones when killed.
OreSpawn is one of the largest mods in Minecraft, and incorporates many mobs other than the ones from the Godzilla franchise.
Mothra! was the first monster to be added in. She fights hostile mobs, and will attack the player. Other than the name (which is stylized with an exclamation mark), it bares little resemblance to Mothra. When defeated or knocked out by other mobs, she will spawn a cloud of smaller Moths before dying, in a similar fashion to Mothra Leo's division attack as Aqua Mothra.
Called Mobzilla, it is the third hardest mob in the mod. It shoots fireballs, and spawns in the village dimension respectively. It can destroy blocks and turns grass into dirt, simulating Godzilla's radiation. It resembles a mixture of Zilla and MireGoji.
Called The King, it is currently the second hardest mob in the mod that can be fought by the player (next to The Queen). It shoots lightning, fire and ice and has massive attack damage and 350 times the number of health points as the player. Attacking him without suitably powerful equipment, such as Mobzilla Scale Armor, is instant suicide.
The King was inspired by King Ghidorah, with the similarities between them being the fact that they are winged three-headed dragons and that they have lightning-like attacks. It spawns in a giant, very rare tree composed of extremely valuable blocks, giving it the mythology of a dragon protecting loot. The two variants on The King—The Prince and The Queen—are based on King Ghidorah through The King.
- Unlike some Minecraft mods, both Orespawn and the Godzilla mod can be ran at the same time, allowing for players to get mobs from both mods to engage in combat against each other.
- Fans have often debated over which mod has the strongest mob. While Mobzilla held the title originally, Godzilla was proven more powerful. This means Burning Godzilla is even more powerful by extension.
- Though The King is stronger than Mobzilla, it can't be proven that he can defeat Godzilla or Burning Godzilla. When in the same world as The King, Godzilla has shown that he will despawn before they have the opportunity to fight. The creator of OreSpawn did this to prevent future mob battles, which have promoted conflict between fans.
- Both mod creators have stated that they do not have a rivalry and that they do not ever want one.
- Fans have started a controversy claiming that one mod copied the other (which ever mod they prefer, they claim was copied by the other). There is clear evidence that this is not the case as the two mods have always had different intentions. Both add challenging bosses, but the Godzilla mod's goal is to add accurate depictions of kaiju from the Godzilla franchise whereas OreSpawn mainly adds original and parody creatures.
- Whenever Dorats are killed they will drop an item that, upon right-clicking it on the ground, will spawn another Dorat (can be used only once). If the player collects 3 of those items and combines them in a special workbench he will get an item that spawns King Ghidorah. This feature was added to imitate the way King Ghidorah was created in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.
- The recently added Diving Suit has a barely visible "2" written on top of the helmet. This was done to reference the diving suit that Dr. Serizawa wore in the original 1954 film.
- Upon hatching, Mothra Egg has a 15% chance of spawning twins.
- It also has a 10% chance of spawning the original 1961 version of Mothra Larva.
