What are the least powerful to most powerful Godzilla's?
Posted Apr-11-2017 3:04 PM
So, today I will be talking about every Godzilla in particular whether them being from film, tv show (Yes, they will be included), and comics. I apologize in advance though if some information I give is not the whole thing. By the time your reading this, I gave my best effort to learn all I could about what certain Godzilla's could do. The particular Godzilla's I don't know much information will be the Dark Horse Godzilla, the Marvel Godzilla (I have some issues of him, so I know a good amount of him), and the Hanna-Barbera Godzilla. For some of you, you won't exactly be to happy with me including this, but I will include the 1998 & 2004 Zilla's and 1967-1969 & 2004 Minilla's. I just want to give then the fair treatment.
I've divided the Godzilla's among twenty different ones in in no particular power order with them being listed as below:
Showa Godzilla (1955-1975)
Heisei Godzilla (1984-1995)
Godzilla Jr. (1993-1995)
Godzilla 2000 (1999)
GMK Godzilla (2001)
Final Wars Godzilla (2004)
Final Wars Minilla (2004)
Final Wars Zilla (2004)
Legendary Godzilla (2014-?)
Shin Godzilla (2016-?)
Hanna-Barbera Godzilla (1978-1979)
Zilla Jr. (1998)
Marvel Godzilla (1977-1979)
Dark Horse Godzilla (1987-1998)
IDW/Rulers of Earth Godzilla (2013-2015)
Now that I've listed the Godzilla's I will be including, let's get started on who's the least and most powerful of them all.
20. Final Wars Minilla (2004)
This Minilla is shown of to be no threat to anyone or anything, even having the Xiliens to wanting of no use of him. We've never seen him fight, he can only shoot his Radioactive smoke rings and than an atomic breath at the end of the movie, and that's just about it.
19. Minilla (1967-1969)
Perhaps a some-sort of a Godzilla that bears no resemblance to his "father", this one had no powerful levels to even take on some of Godzilla's Showa Era enemies. But what I can give the monster is that at least he's willing to fight when the time comes whether it be not so much powerful monsters like Kamacuras, Kumonga, and Gabara. He'll definitely hold his own for as long as he can and could surely beat Final Wars Godzilla.
18. Hanna-Barbera Godzilla (1978-1979)
This Godzilla in particular is somewhat of a monster that's not to be underestimated with as it can give other monsters a challenge. At times in the episodes, this Godzilla can be shown to at times having difficulty beating other monsters, but than again, at the end of the day, he'll always come out on top as the winner. Still however though, this Godzilla is near enough to be at the top with the other powerful Godzilla's.
17. Final Wars Zilla (2004)
Where do I start with this Zilla? Other than him quickly losing to Final Wars Godzilla, all this Zilla did was intentionally explode a tanker truck and eat two guys running from him. Despite his fast speed and agility, this Zilla is one I don't believe that could handle some of Showa Godzilla's opponents.
16. Zilla (1998)
With this Zilla, at least he was able to make some effort in fighting some of the military, while also letting them destroy parts of New York City. This Zilla was smart enough to sneak behind Apache helicopters, have a torpedo hit the Anchorage submarine, and still able to fool the military into thinking he would fall for their bait-trap again. Sadly though, the loss of his babies and wanting to exact revenge on a group of humans immediately got the better of him when he was killed by missiles from nearby jets.
15. Zilla Jr. (1998)
I will give this Zilla a round of applause as he was able to do much better things than his father did. This Zilla was able to hold off many monsters, get beat hard and still rise back up, never afraid, and just so many more things he could do. He was an ally to a certain group of humans and no matter what he and the humans always triumphed over other monsters.
14. Godzilla Jr. (1993-1995)
Are we getting to the good stuff now? I believe so because though he didn't much in 93', he was willing to risk his life in 94' to fight off Spacegodzilla. That's a very brave little monster. Not until in 95' did he prove what he's capable of when he fought Destoroyah's early stages which he defeated. Only till sometime later in the film when he was near death from Destoroyah dropping him onto the ground and being fired on, his father gave all his energy to him, becoming a full grown Godzilla, able to continue on his father's legacy.
13. Gojira/Godzilla (1954)
Even though this Godzilla didn't fight no monsters, you can't deny the fact that he did cause massive damage to Tokyo and killed many people in the process. He left behind trails of radiation wherever he was at, poisoning many more people. Maybe this is the Godzilla that by far has the highest killing count of humans in film.
12. Dark Horse Godzilla (1987-1998)
When it comes to this Godzilla, he's particularly okay when fighting, but it doesn't necessarily mean that he's just as great as the powerful ones. He's very much like the Showa one, if not, than less powerful. The monsters he does fight however prove to be of some challenge to him as based on what I've read about, but other than that, he's powerful to handle some other opponents.
11. Showa Godzilla (1955-1975)
Now here's a Godzilla whose fought many opponents, developed all kinds of different powers, and still never gave up. He is probably the Godzilla people come to think of whenever someone thinks silly, but silly or not, this Godzilla has proved time and time again that he won't let any monster put him down without a fight.
10. Godzilla (2002-2003)
We are getting closer to number 1, but this Godzilla could fairly handle himself well against Kiryu and Mothra on his own. Had no humans intervened in to repairing Kiryu, Godzilla would have most definitely eliminated the larvaes also. This Godzilla is also good in physical combat so as he doesn't always need to rely on his atomic breath.
9. Godzilla 2000 (1999)
We have a Godzilla where his atomic breath has been very much changed to the point that whatever it hits, it causes very severe damage and/or cause serious burning pain to another monster. When he does fight Orga however, Orga is not really much of a match for Godzilla as Godzilla enters Orga's mouth and blasts him with his much more powerful atomic breath. He than proceeds to fire at the city like a boss.
8. GMK Godzilla (2001)
Not one, not two, but three monsters is how many Godzilla killed in the movie. This is by far the only other Godzilla who intentionally is causing destruction upon humanity, but he won't do it without the Guardian Monsters there to stop him. They tried their best to stop him, but Godzilla was to much for them, but in the end however, Godzilla looks to be defeated, but will always remain to be because he is an undead beast.
7. Final Wars Godzilla (2004)
Here's a Godzilla who can easily plow through his enemies without even a break of sweat. His only goal is to destroy the Gotengo that trapped him, but it doesn't necessarily mean that he won't ignore the monsters fighting him. In the end when it seems that he would lose, he inherits energy to help him defeat Keizer Ghidorah by firing his Hyper Spiral Ray at him, exploding in the process.
6. Marvel Godzilla (1977-1979)
The Avengers and the FF, two teams that seem capable of stopping anything that poses any threats, but they still weren't able to stop Godzilla. They were merely mosquitos to the King, but only at the simple request of a boy asking him to leave did Godzilla accept. Even when Godzilla was human-sized, Godzilla could still handle taking on the teams. Goes to show how powerful this Godzilla is.
5. Shin Godzilla (2016-?)
The biggest Godzilla of them all. He packs all the firepower that all the other Godzilla's would wish they could have, but it doesn't mean he's invincible. By using too much energy, he needs to take a good amount of time to cool down, leaving him very vulnerable to any enemies. But with one strike of all his rays against another monster, it's likely that they were to be killed.
4. Legendary Godzilla (2014-?)
This mammoth of a Godzilla has been around for millions of years, way before even the dinosaurs came around. This Godzilla took an asteroid hit directly that altered the planet's atmosphere. He still was able to walk away fine, but when it comes to fighting other monsters, he does an okay job in it, getting hurt a lot in the process.
3. IDW/Rulers of Earth Godzilla (2013-2015)
A Godzilla who can take on many enemies, use different powerful abilities, and develop what is perhaps the most powerful atomic breath used by Godzilla. This Godzilla defeated his most powerful enemy ever, but it doesn't mean that he didn't take any massive damage in the process throughout his years in the earlier Kingdom of Monstes & History's Greatest Monster storylines.
2. Heisei Godzilla (1984-1995)
He is the the likely one to be the most powerful Godzilla there is. Each monster he's ever faced, there were always tougher, but so was he. Every movie he gained more stronger abilities and used them against his enemies. By 1995 however, he absorbed to much power to the point that he was dying and would destroyed the planet in the process. The humans were able to stop that from happening, but sadly though, a King was lost, but yet, another one was born to continue on his legacy.
1. Godzilla (2000)
How? That's my question to both how he's the most powerful and how was he able to get out. At the end of the movie, we see a man-made black hole weapon fire at Godzilla, sucking him in. Nothing can escape a black hole, not even the speed of light, but how he escaped, no idea. Unless of course was that because it is man-made and not the real thing in space, which has its defaults. But yet, this Godzilla may be the most powerful Godzilla as of yet so far.
What do you think? Which Godzilla do you believe is the least powerful or most powerful? Let me know in the comment section.
