Cyber-Godzilla, also known as the First Godzilla, Cyber-Zilla or Godzilla (ゴジラ Gojira?) among other names, is a movie monster that first appeared in the animated Godzilla: The Series and is based upon Godzilla, the title character in the 1998 Roland Emmerich American film Godzilla. The design by Patrick Tatopoulos is that of a hunched bent-over marine iguana. The creature is Godzilla resurrected as a cyborg by aliens known as Tachyons.

MerchandiseEdit

Godzilla: The Series - Cyber-GodzillaEdit

Trendmasters planned a toy version of Cyber-Godzilla and created some prototypes, but the project was cancelled due to the bad sales of collectibles from the 1998 film.

ReceptionEdit

After his first appearance, Cyber-Godzilla became a favourite among fans. Also, after the creature Zilla appeared in the 2004 film Godzilla: Final Wars, and caused the name change myth (created by fans who misinterpreted the appearance of the new character), the Cyber-Godzilla character was nicknamed "Cyber-Zilla" by fans.

TriviaEdit

  • Cyber-Godzilla is similar to Toho's movie monsters MechaGodzilla and Mecha-King Ghidorah because of it being a cyborg.
  • Cyber-Godzilla may have been the inspiration for Kiryu, which has a similar origin (Kiryu was made out of the remains of the first Japanese Godzilla and Cyber-Godzilla was made out of the remains of the first American Godzilla).
  • Cyber-Godzilla is armed with an atomic heat ray which is blue in color, which is similar to the Japanese Godzilla's blue atomic ray, as opposed to his son, whose atomic fire is green.
