Inspired by some comments on facebook, I've noticed there's a lot of misconceptions about the Godzilla series both in-universe and filmmaking wise. So help me out Scified team.

What do you think are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions within the franchise and about the movies? Which questions do you hear the most from fans or people new to the fandom? Are there questions you want to hear answered that you aren't sure about? Are there some misconceptions that fans believe and you know to be true otherwise? I'm curious to hear from everyone.

Zilla is not Godzilla:

There are many misconceptions that the monster from the 1998 film is godzilla, thoho the Producer and Owner of Godzilla has oficially re-named the monster to zilla, quotiung that they took the God out of Godzilla

Godzilla vs Satan:

This whas a rumored cancelled film, that rumor started to popout due to misinformation from a magazine, toho never planed on making such a film, when the Magazine made a retractionit whas too late

KingKong Vs Godzilla Double ending:

A rumor stated that the ending to the movie varied in the dub, this is falce with the only difrence in the ending is that in the japanese version when Kong came out of the ocean Godzilla's roar could be heard, while in the American version Kong's roar is heard, Toho oficially stated that the winner of the figth whas Kong

From my experience with YouTube commentors as well as people I've met in real life that know little about Godzilla, I've compiled the following tentative list.

Is Godzilla a lizard?

Is the monster that appeared in Godzilla (1998) actually Godzilla?

Is Godzilla good or evil?

Does Godzilla breathe fire?

Is Godzilla smart?

Is Godzilla male or female?

Is Gamera a Godzilla monster or another monster entirely?

Is the alternate ending rumor for King Kong vs. Godzilla true?

How many Godzilla movies are there?

Where does Godzilla's name come from?

(I'm sure I will think of more eventually.)

Hm..Most of the every day people i know undrstand what Godzilla is, but there are a few misconceptions i hear.

Is Zilla Godzilla?

Does Godzilla breath flames?

Isnt Godzilla a giant mutated lizard?

Good grief.

Mech Rodan

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPOct-06-2014 4:02 PM

Godzilla breaths radiation in the olf films and most likely plasma in the 2014 movie.

Zilla is in the Godzilla universe but he is not Godzilla

Gigan is a cyborg, not a mech or robot

Yes, King Ghidorah is an alien, in the Showa films.

Godzilla isn't invinceble, but he is pretty durable.

These are a few questions I see on Youtube from time-to-time.

Godzilla 1998 is Zilla

Godzilla is green only in two films. In the rest he is charcoal black(charcoal grey in 2014).

Godzilla is only evil in a few of his films.

Zilla Junior was not dubbed Godzilla Junior by Toho, this was a rumor spread by fans of the show.

King Ghidorah and Keizer Ghidorah aren't the same character.

Godzilla Junior at the end of Godzilla vs Destoroyah is not the same Godzilla seen in 1999 or in 2004.

King Kong is not as big as Godzilla!!!

Godzilla vs Megaguirus is not a direct continuation of Godzilla 2000: the suits may look the same, yes, but the stories are set in alternate timelines.

That "deleted scene" from Final Wars is not Bagan. It's a monster called Reizaus.

Be yourself, for everyone else is taken.

I got one:

 

Doesn't Godzilla eat people/cars?

 

(Of course not, but I don't know how many times I've heard that.)

JRR

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPOct-06-2014 5:51 PM

Nate it does have been implied that Godzilla eats pepole in the 1st movie where an old man says that they used to sacrifise Young Women to calm him down and so that he stops eating their fish

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPOct-06-2014 5:57 PM

Here's a couple I've been asked at school:

 

Isn't the original the one with Mathew Broddrick?

 

Don't the movies have crappy actors that talk out of sync?

 

Isn't the 2014 the sequel to the one from 1998?

 

Why does Godzilla destroy Japan? Is he racist or something? 

(yes, someone was serious about this question ^) 

 

So is Godzilla a girl? She had babies in the 1998 one.

Daniell are you serious?, many pepole i know know the awnser to many of those, and thats considering they have watched very few movies

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPOct-06-2014 7:24 PM

@JRR

Well, I've only been asked those questions at school (even by teachers!). 

 

I barely have anyone to talk about Godzilla with except peeps on the internet and my Mom. No one around where I live know Godzilla, unfortunately.

Danielle, thats unfortunate. Everyone should know about Godzilla..Well you always got us here when you need a Godzilla conversation!

Good grief.

My FAQ is 'Why do you like Godzilla?"

And I tell them the same thing...."How dare you speak to me"

NerdyBandGeeks

Mothra LarvaeMember0 XPOct-06-2014 8:24 PM

My list:

Isn't that the cheesy movie with a guy in a rubber suit?

Does said guy destroy a cardboard city?

Why are you so excited about those 3 monsters being in the sequel to the new movie? (You know which ones.)

What are the things on his back called?

Why do you hate the 1998 movie?

What is it even about?

Did he ever fight that one giant turtle?

The biggest misconception is that Godzilla has good taste in hair-cuts and is a good barber.

I think more debatable and opinionated subjects like, "Is Godzilla good or evil?" or "Is Godzilla smart?" "Isn't the movie cheesy?" etc. will be left out. Lets stick to questions that have fairly substantial facts behind them.

This isn't necessarily just for non-G-Fans, but G-Fans who may have misconceptions about the series they enjoy as well.

For example, so think Rodan caused Godzilla's Burning form. There is nothing to support that idea at all and is explained as something entirely different in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. Stuff of that nature.

What's bothered me a bit is the Godzilla brain size deal, ever since KK vs G everyone thinks Godzilla has a brain the size of a marble. So let's clear that up

GiganModerator3811 XPOct-07-2014 8:28 AMTeam Godzilla

Another huge misconception i hear when talking to my friend at the grocery store is

Hey isnt Godzilla 2014 the sequel to Godzilla 98?

Good grief.

CeeBoogie,
Thanks. I created it for an article: http://www.scified.com/site/we-all-wear-suits---japanese-sci-fi--fantasy/godzilla-14-as-a-stealth-showa-film

I liked how much it came out that I decided to make it an avatar for a little bit. I'm actually doing other half-and-half Godzilla faces for other designs. Been thinking about taking requests on that, but that's another topic for another time.

 

Been making a list of your guys' suggestions.

Just a thought GMAN, could do a half/half of G54 and G84 since they're so similar

Something Real

GodzillaMember5639 XPOct-07-2014 11:45 AM

GMAN2887 - How very interesting! Hmm, one of the most glaring questions I've seen asked at least 10 times is "Do the older Godzilla films use animatronics?". Many people, from what I've been able to deduce, are under the impression that the monsters brought to life in the older films were mostly robotics and puppet wizardry rather than the Tokusatsu art form known as Suitmation. This, in my opinion, deserves some clarification. :)

GiganModerator3811 XPOct-07-2014 12:50 PMTeam Godzilla

Sparkzilla- 2014 and 75 match the best.

Good grief.

G. H. (Gman)

GiganAdmin4817 XPOct-07-2014 12:53 PMTeam Ghidorah

You can mix and match any though. That's part of the fun.

Ok, i know there is do***entary after do***entary about godzilla's healing ability.

So the question i would often ask is, has godzilla had healing powers since 1954?

Think about it like this, how do we not know tomoyuki tanaka wasn't lying about it during the early years.

I seriously want a debate about this, the begginers book called "The offical godzilla compendium" States that godzilla has had this power since 1954, however books by steve ryfle, august ragone, and david kalat all say different.

So how about we look into this for a change?

I'd take Ryfle, Ragone and Kalat's words over Lees any day.
