So after looking at the NECA Godzilla King Of The Monsters figures (really sad about there not being a NECA King Ghidorah figure) I noticed something about the atomic breath figure, more specifically how spread out the effect of the atomic breath is compared to the first, I will go into more detail later

I don't think Godzilla can suffer from radiation poisoning, at least in the same vein as non-radiovores.

For him and similar Titan species that feed on radiation, it's more like water or food for normal animals. Thus, if anything, it's more that he's "overstuffed" on radiation than poisoned.

So overstuffed that, presumably, the constant glow he has pumps his muscles and leaks through his skin and allows him to pump extra strength into his atomic breath without risk of draining his reserves.

this might be more evidence to suggest that godzilla will enter meltdown mode in KOTM, although honestly I doubt it, I personally think that you are right that this would be the legendary equivalent of the Spiral heat beam from the heisei era

Uh, Godzilla eats radiation. How is he supposed to get poisoned from it?

Gmkgoji remember godzilla versus destoroyah, that is how he takes radiation poisoning, that is what I mean

Resurgence You should've seen the news that came up about the Jaaks Pacific KOTM figures and Gmkgoji's spoiler thread.

Other than that, I don't think Godzilla is getting radiation poisoning, although that would be a good topic to talk about when it comes to Kong in GvK.

I don't think it is actually burning Godzilla it's just an artistic rendering of one of the scenes in the trailer because Jakks Pacific didn't want to put out the same figures same paint style twice and I've been purposefully avoiding spoilers I do however believe he will be getting a power up

Godzilla does get a powerup. 2, in fact

Resurgence Just some advice from me (Since I've been here since Nov 6, 2017, [On my other account, my MinecraftDinoKaiju account.] which would make me a year-old website member at the moment.): If you don't (or in your case, didn't) want spoilers, leave something that states that it is a non-spoiler topic or that it is you're avoiding spoilers, or (maybe better) before people leave comments, tell them to not say any spoilers in their comments. You're welcome.

Thank you for the advice MDK 2 I really appreciate it, I'll keep that in mind from now on, and Gmkgoji it's fine I figured he was going to anyway to combat King Ghidorah

Resurgence: On your point about Godzilla vs Destroyah, the big G did not suffer from radiation posioning per se, but a meltdown, not the same thing as a poisoning. Bascially, big G suffered from a runaway nuclear fission in his heart.  But he is not "poisoned" by radiation. 

Resurgence

MemberBaragonFeb-21-2019 7:02 PM

But to be technical that may just be how his species deals with radiation poisoning because I believe with regular poisoning different species react differently

Resurgence: Species die from poisoning, they not explode and take the rest of the world with it, as Godzilla would have done. That is not poisoning.

Basically, with radiovores, it's more akin to overbloat from nutrition consumption when they consume too much radiation.

Some animals can in fact explode if they eat too much; the weird properties of nuclear radiation probably result in unique properties.

What TheGman123 is saying is actually strangely true. There have been instances of animals 'exploding' from eating to large of meals. There's a picture out there of a Burmese python that ate a large alligator in the everglades and was ripped open by it. Quite interesting. Also radiovores? I like that I didn't know that's what they were called that's cool.

I don't think Godzilla can suffer from radiation poisoning, he tanked a nuclear blast that would have been larger than the Hiroshima bomb and kept on going. In the trailer we see a scene of the temple complex he's in getting nuked, then we see him glowing. Well the scenes play backwards in the trailer, but you get what I'm after. This leads me to believe that this blue glow, which is indicative of gamma radiation by the way, is a result of tanking the nuclear blast and absorbing the immense amount of radiation that gives off. As we are told in the 2014 movie, they feed on radiation.

P.S. If you're "no spoiler" tag includes the trailers, my apologies in advance

No you'really good the trailers and TV spots are fair game, and that is a pretty interesting theory

Apparently, regular nukes don't have great radiation output. NEUTRON BOMBS, however, are much more packed. Basically, think of a nuke where the radioactive output has been cranked up a notch.

I imagine that an ordinary nuke wouldn't be able to supply enough energy to Godzilla to get him all blue and pumped like we've seen him. But a neutron bomb? That could give him all the radiation he needs whilst minimizing blast strength.

TheGMan123 holy crap that's terrifying to think about

@TheGMan123 Well that is and isn't true. Bear with me here I'm not a nuclear physicist I just did research for a book I'm writing. SciFi book, figured I'd clarify that just in case. So the way most modern nuclear weapons, things like the minute men ICBM's, is they are thermo nuclear, which for us non nuclear engineers. That it's a fission reaction that sets off a fusion detonation. This produces absolutely HUGE amounts of gamma radiation, which is in the blue spectrum, which is why I believe Godzilla is glowing blue. That and all of his marketing is blue, and well the atomic breath has always been blue hasn't it.... sorry thinking and typing. While you are absolutely correct that Neutron bombs put out large amounts of radiation as well, they are designed to create fallout. As opposed to the thermo nuclear devices that would eject most of the radioactive material into the atmosphere. One of the reasons nuclear weapons are so horrifically dangerous is that if you can see the flash, it can kill you. Gamma radiation is produced by the act of detonating the warhead and propagates out in all directions. There are certain factors like attenuation to consider, but that's really only if you're behind something seriously substantial. It's also the one complaint I have about the 2014 movie. You see the blast go off, which means anyone who was within line of sight of the detonation just got dosed with gamma radiation.

I don't mean to tirade, so I'm sorry if that's how this is coming across. I like to share knowledge.

Anyway. If Godzilla is feeding primarily off gamma radiation, which I bet he is, then something like Zarbomba would be like you or me chugging several monster tall boys back to back. Zarbomba detonated with an absolutely titanic force of fifty megatons. The amount of radioactive material it would have taken to get that monstrous of a detonation would have released huge amounts of gamma radiation. The point I'm trying to make here, and weather they go this way in the film, is that if the Gman is fueled by gamma radiation then the bigger the bomb the better. Yes this has some dangerous side effects, like obliterating everything in that cave. But it would dose Godzilla with large amounts of radiation quickly, as opposed to a dirty bomb like a Neutron bomb. But either way, discussions like this are fun :)

P.S. I use words like monstrous and horrific, because that's what nuclear power is. It is awe-inspiring, but it is truly terrible as well. Sorry just felt the need to clarify that

Yeah I remember reading somewhere that gamma radiation produces blue light but I couldn't remember if that was true or not

There is another reason why godzillas atomic breath is blue the reason is in this video, I would explain it but I might not do as well as the video

It is more in the blue spectrum, though admittedly it's not as bright a blue as what we see in the movies but artistic license is a fun way for creators to make things more visually pleasing. If it were more true to life it would be a deeper blue, very close to like a midnight blue. But that wouldn't look as good on a dark colored creature. Kinda side tracked your post here, sorry about that. Oops missed the post about the video, I'll have to watch that later, I'm sure there's some artistic reason why it's blue.

Resurgence

MemberBaragonFeb-23-2019 1:01 PM

Actually you'll find that they didn't take any creative liberty with the atomic breath, the video makes that really clear, I was really surprised when I found out, and it goes into the science of it

MemberMothra LarvaeFeb-23-2019 1:17 PM

Oh the because science video, love that show. But I see what you were getting at, ionizing radiation is what would turn the air blue. Forgot to mention that one lol, so it would still be primarily gamma radiation. Though there could be something else in it as well like Kyle said. This would also explain why he has that blue glow, it's ionizing radiation being expelled from his body.
