Planet X, as seen in Invasion of Astro-Monster

Planet X (X星,   Ekkusu Sei) is the home planet of the Xiliens. It is the main setting for the space battle between Rodan, Godzilla and King Ghidorah in Invasion of Astro-Monster. Planet X is the first location outside of Earth which kaiju are shown to visit, and is to this day the only extraterrestrial location which Godzilla has visited in any of the films. It is also the place where Godzilla performs his famous "victory dance" after defeating King Ghidorah.

Details

According to Glenn's measurements, Planet X has an atmosphere with one tenth of Earth's atmospheric pressure and a gravitational pull of one third of Earth's gravity. Despite that, Godzilla, Rodan, and King Ghidorah seem to walk, jump, and fly as they would normally on Earth. It may also possess oxygen and carbon dioxide since the Xiliens and monsters are shown breathing on the planet's surface. However, the astronauts still wore spacesuits with helmets on the planet's surface, while the Xiliens and monsters may not necessarily require oxygen to breathe, so it is not certain whether or not Planet X possesses oxygen or carbon dioxide in its atmosphere.

Godzilla: Monsters & Protectors

A MeToob thumbnail in the first issue reads "Planet X: Does It Exist?" The hypothetical planet is depicted as purple.

Trivia

  • Planet X shares its name with a discredited hypothetical planet that was thought to exist beyond the orbit of Pluto.
  • Planet X was mentioned by the Xilien Zagreth in Godzilla Island. According to her, Planet X is not the Xilien homeworld, but merely their colony in the Solar System.
