Who is it?
Godzilla's most powerful form, critical mass, was knocked down three times, dragged by his neck twice, and thrown entirely off the ground once before the fight ended and only managed to knock Destoroyah down once throughout the entire fight. Also, Destoroyah took not one, not two, but nine total blasts from Godzilla's red-spiral ray and sustained absolutely zero damaged from the first two. The second two managed to get the best of him when Godzilla exposed his belly flower thing, but after he broke apart and reformed the fight continued with Destoroyah as good as new. A further five blasts were used just to make him retreat from the area as Godzilla melted down, and even then Godzilla didn't deliver the finishing blow.
The military's freezing weapons and the Super X III were required to defeat Destoroyah.
Ultimately, Godzilla failed.
Many of Godzilla's other big time enemies are in competition with Destoroyah for this title, but the facts remain in the paragraph above and no other enemy can boast such a resume against Godzilla in a single engagement.
Spacegodzilla retreated after about three to four blasts. Mechagodzilla II was destroyed outright in three to four direct blasts. The red-spiral ray wasn't even required for King Ghidorah or Mecha-King Ghidorah, nor any other enemy in the Heisei series. Kaizer Ghidorah only took one red-spiral ray from the mutant's boost of power, but even then it only took one blast.
Again, Godzilla's single most powerful opponent is in fact Destoroyah. There are no other enemies which can overcome that fact. Godzilla's critical mass state is his single most powerful form, and another fact is that he only got stronger as the fight went on because his radiation levels continued to rise with his temperature. This is especually true at the end of the fight when his body really started going out of control, and even then it was not enough to defeat Destoroyah outright.
The video games are non-canon to the film franchise, and they take several liberties with the monsters and their abilities versus what we see on screen in the films where the canon is more or less absolute.
Godzilla's most popular opponent?
King Ghidorah, hands down.
Because he's a badass three headed dragon.
Is he the strongest?
Not by any means.
So yes fans, sad to say it but Godzilla's single most powerful opponent is in fact Destoroyah. He may not be the most popular, but he is hands down the single most powerful opponent Godzilla has ever faced in the entire franchise.
Had he been in Final Wars he'd likely have been the final boss instead of Monster X. The most likely reason they didn't use him was because of the fact that Destoroyah was created with the Oxygen Destroyer, and that device was never mentioned in the film nor even referenced. It's likely they ignored its continuity altogether becuase almost every other monster came back save for Biollante, Spacegodzilla, Mechagodzilla, and Destoroyah. Each one has unique and special circumstances which make it impossible to force feed into such a story, even one as spastic as Final Wars.
So arguments can be made, but the facts all remain. No other opponent has pushed Godzilla as far as Destoroyah did, and for those keeping track, I count Mechagodzilla II aiming for Godzilla's secondary brain as cheating on the human's part. Had they let Godzilla continue fighting and left that brain alone, I doubt it would have taken Rodan's energy to win the day when Godzilla defeated him with a single reverse charge during their first fight. If given enough time, Godzilla could have won the second fight the same way by sending that charge back to fry Mecha-G's circuits.
i have a feeling that this a topic based on my 'destroyah is overrrated' post
The oxygen destroyah would destroy any living thing in minutes. Man killed the first Godzilla. Than they created mechagodzilla 1993 which again killed Godzilla, even though he was ressurected about 60 seconds later. We buried him in an avalanche which took him 7 years to get out of and tossed him into a volcano which took him 5 years to get out of.
If you mean just monsters, Biollante can't die, just further evolves each time it's body is destroyed. Think about how weak it's first form was and than the next evolution was HUGE and was easily able to pierce Godzilla's skin, the third form would have been insanely powerful.
dude a 3rd biollante form... that would be epic,that's a very interesting theroy that biollante can have a third form, what would that look like, a plant version of super/spacegodzilla???
Destroyah is one of the most powerfull, I think Kaiser Gidorah is, too. Destroyah is nealry in destructable by anything else, than ice and Kaiser Gidorah is very strong at attacking. I think Spacegodzilla is very strong, too, there were 2 Monsters required to kill him.
In my opinion, one of this three. Destroyah is my favorite, so I would vote for him
here's anouther thing, writers can make any monster more powerful than the other, movie writers could give ghidorah the power equal to galactus (too over the top), make godzilla a living nuke, or they could even give biollante a unlimited amont of forms due to her adapability and immortality( that would be awesome)
I wanna say Destroyah, but Keizer Ghidorah put a pretty big whoopin on the guy.
My top 3 most powerful 3: Destroyah 2: SpaceGodzilla 1: Keizer Ghidorah
I have to agree with Doggiezilla, Destroyah, SpaceGodzilla and Keizer Ghidorah, however, I'm not sure on the order. They are all close.
We'll it not destroyah it kiezar ghidirah because he almost manage to kill him and he fought godzilla at his best which is final war godzilla. Yea destroyah is very tough but still he wasn't close to killing godzilla and eventually he would of won. Now if that was final war godzilla the fight would of been done a whole lot early because his atomic ray alone was able to kill the other monster with one shot because of how much power he had n that why his red spiral was so strong to kill Kiezar ghidorah with one shot and would have done the same to destroyah.
When godzilla fought spacegodzilla, he was focused on rescuing his son not fighting. When godzilla fought kaiser ghidorah, gigan and monster X weakened him before he fought kaiser. With Destroyah... well you kind of got me there, if anything Godzilla should have been stronger with his hotter than normal fire blast and he was outraged whem destroyah killed his son
