The Super X2 (スーパーXII (エックスツー),   Sūpā Ekkusu Tsū) is a remote-control aerial vehicle used by the JSDF that first appeared in Godzilla vs. Biollante. It was built using the remains of the original Super X.

History[edit | edit source]

Heisei era[edit | edit source]

Godzilla vs. Biollante[edit | edit source]

The Super X2 was built to defend Japan in case of foreign nations, or giant monsters, attacking. It was built to be able to be flown from a control room, Sho Kuroki being chosen to be in charge.

After Godzilla escaped from inside the volcano he was trapped in at the end of The Return of Godzilla, he headed out to the Sea of Japan. The Super X2 was dispatched to intercept Godzilla, and engaged Godzilla soon after. The Super X2's Fire Mirror reflected Godzilla's atomic breath in the form of a golden light, causing Godzilla to retreat below the ocean waves. The Super X2 followed Godzilla and fired twin explosive tipped torpedoes, forcing the monster to surface. Godzilla attempted to use his atomic breath against the Super X2 again, which it reflected. However, Godzilla sustained his atomic blast until it began to melt the Super X2's shield. To defend against Godzilla, the Super X2 closed the maw of the shield and bombarded Godzilla with missiles and shells, which had no effect on Godzilla. Godzilla then swung his tail at the Super X2, putting it out of commission temporarily.

Assessing the damage done to the Super X2, Kuroki was informed that the Fire Mirror's parabolic screen couldn't be repaired in time. The Super X2 was sent to Osaka, where Godzilla was headed. There, it kept Godzilla at a distance with the rest of its weapons and lured him between several buildings where soldiers armed with bazooka shells of Anti-Nuclear Energy Bacteria awaited Godzilla. Godzilla, not being quite in the range, almost started to move back and leave, but Sho Kuroki decided to open the Fire Mirror to lure Godzilla to where they needed him to be. Godzilla blasted the Super X2, causing it to fall to the ground, but also make Godzilla move within distance of the soldiers.

Godzilla Island[edit | edit source]

After Godzilla seemingly rampaged through Tokyo, Besuke Jinguji dispatched the Super X2 to arrest the monster.

Weapons[edit | edit source]

  • Able to operate in extreme ocean depths down to 10,000 meters as a submarine.

  • Can fire torpedoes from four shafts on the front of the craft, a pair on both sides.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Super X2 is the only Super X to not be manually piloted. Rather, it is remotely controlled by Sho Kuroki, who would go on to pilot the Super X3. This makes the Super X2 more like a drone.
    • The Super X2 is also the only Super X to be submersible, making it both a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) and a UUV (Unmanned Underwater Vehicle).
  • The Super X2 is a flying submarine, similar to the Gotengo.
  • According to the book "Godzilla" Toho Special Effects Unpublished Material Archive: Producer Tomoyuki Tanaka and His Era, the Super X2 was originally scripted as a flying battleship called ZEUS (Zooming Electron Universal Shooter).
  • The concept of using a mirror to reflect a monster's energy beam back at it was seen previously in Gamera vs. Barugon, using the Giant Parabolic Mirror.
  • Synthetic Diamond would be used again for the Heisei Mechagodzilla, the Garuda, and MOGUERA's armor, as well as Kiryu's Absolute Zero Cannon.
