Atomic breaths

Atomic breath, also known as nuclear breath, is a biological weapon that is used by the American Godzilla to defend itself. Although this ability is now commonly known as an atomic/nuclear fire breath, in the early stages of the evolution of the atomic breath this ability was not that well recognized in the American Godzilla species. Up until recent years the nuclear breath evolved to become more iconic and devestating.
