So it turns out that Zilla's weight is unknown... Godzilla Fandom said it was 20.000 tons, but can i not trust them?

Fake News Godzilla Wikia?
Unsourced stats should always be viewed with suspicion.
Ok, but where else can i get some Zillbo info?
It does not seem like there is an official weight for Zilla, Fandom probably made it up.
Yeah, it's a weird omission on Toho's part.
I guess you could figure out Zilla's length by measuring the height and length of the Trendmasters Ultimate Godzilla figure Toho scanned to make his model and cross multiplying.
OK, gonna make some rough estimates here. Gonna be basing FW Zilla's stats on the Tristar one. (Yes, I'm calling him that, for sanity's sake.)
Tristar stats (official):
Height: 54 meters
Length: between 78.03-91.44 meters
Weight: 500 tons
(OK, so, when it came down to height, both have a 36 meter difference. So for the length, I'll be adding 36 to 78.03 and 91.44. As for the weight,...oh boy. It's a tough one, cuz I'm not expert in mass. Let alone advanced forms of math. But I'm still just gonna estimate here, anyway. So for the sake of estimating, I'm just gonna put 2 weights, in case one's too low or too high and as an estimation. So the 1st one's simply 500 + 36, while the 2nd's 1000 [a.k.a. 500 x 2] - 36. Just remember: THESE ARE STILL JUST, AND ARE ONLY, ESTIMATES. THEY ARE NOT OFFICIAL AND SHOULD, MOSTLY LIKELY, BE TAKEN WITH A KAIJU-SIZED GRAIN OF SALT.)
FW stats (estimated and official):
Height: 90 meters (official)
Length: between 114.03-127.44 meters (estimate)
Weight: between 536-964 tons (estimate)
Again, these are just estimates.
You're not going to get the same height-length ratio if you add the same number to both stats. A 90-meter-tall GINO would be 150 meters long (using the 90-meter length stat in Shin Godzilla Walker).
I don't think you can use GINO's weight to extrapolate Zilla's; each studio tends to use very different baselines when making up those stats, and Godzilla's tail whip would've sent a monster that light to the moon. Zilla is 90% of the 55,000-ton GFW Godzilla's height, and of a similar build, so a mass of 49,500 tons makes sense to me.
Like I said before, I'm not a math fan. Why do ya think I put so much emphasis on "not official" and "estimates," when doing all that?
I hate math. Math hates me. 🤣
But 500 tons is REALLY light for a godzilla kaiju, for example: Godzilla: 60.000 tons, Destoroyah: 80.000 tons, and Keizer Ghidorah: 100.000 tond
Huh. 🤔 Now that you mention it, that IS pretty lightweight. Either the writers were off by a few zeros or Zilla's had way too much tuna. 🤣
Daiei kaiju are even lighter!
Mmm, that's fair.
And now ya know why I focus on heights (or lengths, if there's no height) and wingspans (if there is one). 🤣
Gamera is 65 meters tall, 10 meters taller than Zilla (1998), but HE WEIGHS ONLY 80 TONS!!! THATS THE SAME AS 8 TRUCKS!
Wait, what kind of trucks are we talkin'? Pickup? Moving? Semi?
BIG BOI SEMI
OK, that makes sense. Had to be sure. 🤣
