The kaiju encyclopedia

Wikizilla (ウィキジラ,   Uikijira) is a collaborative Godzilla encyclopedia based on the wiki concept. Wikizilla's main focus is documenting the Godzilla franchise and the Godzilla fandom.

Name

Wikizilla's name is a portmanteau of the words "Wiki," the concept which Wikizilla is based on, and "-zilla," a popular suffix which comes from Godzilla's name, obviously referencing how Wikizilla is an online encyclopedia primarily based on Godzilla.

Content

Wikizilla focuses primarily on the Godzilla franchise, along with the Gamera and King Kong franchises and other topics related to Godzilla and Toho Wikizilla has over 2,700 articles and over 20,000 images, including screenshots, posters, concept art, production photos, and much more.

Staff

Main article: Wikizilla:Staff.

Wikizilla, like most wikis, is run by fans of its source material, in this case the Godzilla franchise. The content-managing administrators of Wikizilla are Titanollante, GodzillaIsland7.2, The King of the Monsters, Koopa, The Boy Who Cried Godzilla, Les, Astounding Beyond Belief and Ghidorahnumber1.

History

Wikizilla was founded by user Danielwang on July 22, 2005, and was hosted by Wikia.com, focusing on Godzilla and King Kong films. Over time, Gamera articles were also created, and eventually several non-Toho monsters appeared. Most of the non-Toho, Gamera and non-Godzilla articles were removed in early 2013 so that a general cleanup could take place, but they were gradually reinstated from 2014 onward, as Wikizilla absorbed the Gamera and King Kong wikis. In addition to these franchises, Wikizilla introduced pages for more obscure giant monsters that lacked an established series of their own, such as Gappa, Guilala and Gorgo. In July 2016, Wikizilla became independent from Wikia and received a new home at https://wikizilla.org. The new Wikizilla was founded by Titanollante, who had been a user on the original Wikizilla since January 25, 2011. The decision to become independent from Wikia was made when the community came to the consensus that it desired greater freedom following the implementation of various policies and changes by Wikia that were considered detrimental to the site. Following the founding of the new site, the original site was re-christened Kaijupedia in order to distinguish it from the new Wikizilla. Only 47 days after the establishment of Kaijupedia, Wikia began restoring it to its former condition, including the reversion of the name change. On June 15, 2017, it was renamed to Gojipedia.

I know what you’re going to say, you’re going to say something along the lines of, “Yes, I'm aware of the context; I was reacting to the message itself, which is charmingly divorced from any form of reality.” Honestly, this Area 51 stuff is just annoying. Yare yare daze.

No, those were the bad days when Wikizilla was considered a joke for factually incorrect things like the supposed 'Zilla Name Change', which we've since gone to great lengths to amend.

Thankfully it's now Gojipedia's job to be the laughing stock of the fandom.

@Green Blob Thing: Just to clarify, I was being sarcastic when I said “good ol’ days”. Those “good ol’ days” were honestly a (excuse my language) HUGE cluster-f**k. Allow me to give some examples (from the best of my memory, correct me if I’m wrong):

1: Godzilla Neo being an ACTUAL Godzilla series. Matt Frank isn’t a bad artist or writer (I honestly enjoy his work, whether or not it’s official), but because it had “GODZILLA” on it, it just HAD to be slapped on the wiki (like most other fan-made works like Godzilla X The Kaiju Killer).


2: The “Zilla Name Change”. Thank you for bringing that up (and thank you to the Administrators and people who correctly debunked it, if you’re reading this 👍). That theory, or whatever it’s called, was CONFUSING AS ALL HELL! I honestly couldn’t BELIEVE that became a thing (not to mention renaming the Godzilla: The Series Godzillas as “Zilla Jr.” and “Cyber-Zilla”. I’m pretty sure we remember those). It was so ridiculous that I have no further things to say about it. Moving on...


3: Giving Design Names to ALL Kaiju Designs. Examples: Designating the design of Godzilla 1998 (or, you know, “Zilla”) as “ShodaiJira”, or a recent design, MonsterVerse King Ghidorah as “LegendaryGhido” (that didn’t exist back then, but that’s my example) or something like that (I’ll admit, it’s creative, but for giving official information? No).

4: Giving Obscure/Irrelevant Creatures their own Pages. Example: In Peter Jackson’s King Kong world, there’s a sub-species of Venatosaurus (the Velociraptor-like dinosaur) called the Blue-Tail Venatosaurus (which are smaller, have darker colors, and, as the name suggests, have blue-tipped tails). I remember this specifically because all there was on a page about the creature was one image, and useless description (now I know that World of Kong is a rare/expensive book, but c’mon, the book has WAY more description than whoever wrote that page. Not to mention that they’re common enemies in the King Kong ‘05 game, even though they may not look like it, they are Blue-Tailed Venatosaurs).

My deepest apologies if this was too long to read, but I hope I helped understand what I meant about the “good ol’ days”. Peace.
