Name[edit | edit source]
Uncle Zilla's Japanese name is a pun on ShinGoji (シンゴジ), a nickname for Godzilla in the 2016 film Shin Godzilla. It comes from the Japanese word oji (伯父 or 叔父), meaning "uncle." He is named as such because he is the uncle of the Three Godzilla Brothers. His name is translated to English as "Uncle Zilla," similar to the English name of the character Grandpa Zilla. The secondary head on the end of Uncle Zilla's tail is simply named Tail (しっぽ. Shippo)
Design[edit | edit source]
Personality[edit | edit source]
Despite his grotesque and emotionless appearance, Uncle Zilla is polite and friendly, and is beloved by his three nephews. Minilla translates his roars on two occasions, indicating that he told Gabara "Hello," and that he later told his nephews "Let's play together." Tail, the secondary head at the end of Uncle Zilla's tail, appears to be an independent being.
History[edit | edit source]
"Uncle Zilla"[edit | edit source]
Uncle Zilla appeared as Gabara was picking on Minilla. Uncle Zilla's mere presence was enough to terrify Gabara, who scrambled away only to encounter Uncle Zilla's son Kamachi. Terrified, Gabara finally ran away from the area, leaving Minilla safe. Minilla thanked his uncle, cuddling with Tail. Little and Godzilla-kun then arrived and joined Minilla and Kamachi in playing with Uncle Zilla. The Three Godzilla Brothers then simultaneously fired their atomic breath into the air, with Uncle Zilla joining in by firing his own beams from his mouth, tail, and dorsal fins.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Energy absorption[edit | edit source]
When three Kamacuras grew to giant size from energy contained in a weather balloon's radiosonde, Uncle Zilla and Kamachi were able to defeat them by inhaling the energy from them, shrinking the Kamacuras to their original size while growing giant from the fumes.
