Hiya guys. Names Grizzwald, and I have been a Godzilla fan since the 98 movie came out and opened me up to the actual Godzilla(aka Tohos Gojira), But thats a story for another time so, When I heard Godzilla 2014 was going to be reaistic, as many of you I would imagine, I was taken aback because the very Idea of a creature, of that size.... not all that easy to explain. But none as so hard to explain ad the Radioactive beam that shoots from his gapping maw. Cause there is little to no creature in nature that has such an ability. I mean yes, some snakes can spit venom, but there is a big diferance between venom and a blast of pure energy.

So how does this happen? How can yoi explain this, REALISTICALLY..., Well, lets look at what we know about his movies. In the first few Showa films,(Gojira-Terror of Mechagodzilla) Godzillas breath started out as a radioactive mist that either melted objests or just obliterated stuff. Now, in the Heisi series,(Godzilla84-Vs.Destroyah), It is explain that Godzilla's "heart" is like a nuclear reactor, and that he usuallystayed in cool ocean temps to sustain the fussion. Also by fans an most stories, Goji can only use it sparingly becausr it depleats his energy quicker. Now all of these things concidered, here is my theroy. 

Around Godzilla's reactor, there are sacks that contain cool ocean water that were originally his lungs when he was a saropod or Alligator, whatever. The sacks fill with cool water th sustain the fussion in the same way a nuclear reactor has, but whem Gojira is harmed or attack, the reactor pumps more furiously anD cause the tenperature to rise. Extreme discharges of energy flow through his body causing his spines to glow with electrical discharges, and the heat in th heart boils the water, causing it to turn to steam an becomes pressurized in the lungs. Then The King takes a breath and, FFFFFFWWEWWWEAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSHHHHHHHH! A consintrated, super heated jet of radioactive steam is fired out though the mouth like a seltzer bottle. Well, thats my theroy. If you guys have one there are comments below. I wanna hear what you think. Cause I don't think it will be for the movie but as Godzilla fans, I just wanna know if it is like that, wattya think.

This will return Godzilla Atomic Breath for sure (don't get me started on Zilla breathing fire in the scene where he blowes at cars.

exelent! a explication like that will make the atomic breath be more credible in the movie.

Godzilla's signature weapon is his distinctive atomic breath. Godzilla's dorsal fins glow ominously, and then he lets loose with a concentrated blast of radiation from his mouth. This power is commonly mistaken for breathing literal fire.

Godzilla has been shown apparently being able to adjust the intensity of his ray, varying from a blast of superheated vapor, such as in the 1950s and 1960s, to a beam with explosive and kinetic properties, in the 1970s and onward. The ray is usually portrayed as being neon blue, though in Godzilla 2000 and Godzilla vs. Megaguirus, it is a reddish orange to signify an increased level of power.

In Godzilla 2000 and Godzilla vs. Megaguirus, Godzilla's atomic breath was shown as having incendiary properties and was strong enough to destroy a miniature black hole, while in Godzilla Final Wars, it possessed incredible range, amazing power and pin-point accuracy, able to hit a target in outer space and kill most kaijuwith a single shot. In a memorable (and somewhat infamous) scene in Godzilla vs Hedorah, Godzilla even used his atomic breath to fly by aiming it at the ground and lifting off like a rocket.

good theory but what about him regenerating from a nuclear reactor?

That sound very believable and realistic.

I mean my only problem is that the heisei and millennium series had him attracted to nuclear plants like a moth to flame...I mean it's ok twice but cranking it out in every movie got ridiculous to me....I just hope the nuclear breath is not a burst of fire like zilla's

it should basically be the concentrated power of the largest nuclear bombs and should vaporize most things, while causing nearby objects to combust and explode. i don't think it would be a good idea to go too much into detail about just how it works in the movie, it would really just end up pointing out how far fetched it is and make it less belivable. what should be belivable is the destruction it causes. it should decimate everything it touches, destroy whatever is close, and ruin that area with high levels of radiation.

also if you really wanted extreme realism for his breath, it could basically be something like what the bombadier beetle has. of course i would rather see his actual atomic breath and i don't think/ want that the beetle thing will ever be used.

The theories about Godzilla's atomic breath are interesting, but I wouldn't take the whole realistic take on Godzilla too literally. I think that Gareth is coming from a viewpoint of how we would react in real life if a Godzilla and other monsters actually appear. I still think you're going to see the atomic breath on full display. Zach Snyder, who directed Man of Steel, talked a lot about how he was taking a realistic approach to Superman, yet we still got plenty of sci-fi elements and special effects. You saw Superman use most of his powers including his eye beam in the film. I think that Gareth will be using that same approach.

Ray I agree with you on this... like I said before...when you worry to much bout shattering the boundaries of realism it's stupid because a giant dinosaur is stomping around


Dec-29-2013 1:30 PM

Nowdays the movies has been becoming into more descriptive, maybe we will hear some theory about whats causing Godzilla's atomic breath or things like that, but I would like this movie keeping all those things as a mistery instead be digging in scientist facts of the big G.

well done with the theory GFAN4.

The world will spin well past our last breath, but I will always care about you

I'm perfectly fine with that...my only issue is when they start taking his abilities away for realism... I mean in 1954 they didn't explain his nuclear breath at all...not even the military...and it worked fantastic

Wait what if godzilla had lungs then the steam that had radiation in them in it goes into the lungs due to an opening during the reactor heating up and take a huge breath for it to trigger it then when contacting the air becomes atomic breath. Also this nuclear reactor would have to  be a boiling water one. This reactor could also pump blood to godzilla's blood vesels.

Since i cant edit i wanted to add that the steam is radioactive because godzilla eats radiation as his food source
