American Godzilla myths and claims
Claim #1
GodzillaFalse
Status (unknown)
First reported (unknown)
Discussed (on wiki) (unknown)

Claim

A user on YouTube claimed that there was officially Toho licensed Bandai toys labeled "Zilla" supposedly released in 1998-1999.[1]

Claim #2: Godzilla (1998) gender

American Godzilla myths and claims
Claim #2
GodzillaFalse
Status (unknown)
First reported (unknown)
Discussed (on wiki) (unknown)

Claim

Some fans often claims that Godzilla is a "she", or they assume that it is a female because of it having the ability to lay eggs.

Confirmation

Claim #3: Name change

 Main article: The Godzilla and Zilla Debate

American Godzilla myths and claims
Claim #3
GodzillaFalse
Status (unknown)
First reported (unknown)
Discussed (on wiki) (unknown)

Claim

Ever since Godzilla: Final Wars was released in 2004, many Godzilla-fans misinterpreted the appearance of the creature Zilla in the film and subsequently caused a seemingly worldwide myth that the American Godzilla character and all of its incarnations had been renamed Zilla.

Confirmation

Although artist Matt Frank made a statement on deviantART in 2013 that the name "Zilla" will be applied to future incarnations of the American Godzilla from 1998, but not to former incarnations. He also noted that Zilla (2004) and Godzilla (1998) go by different "titles" (names).

Claim #6: Zilla in Godzilla: Unleashed

American Godzilla myths and claims
Claim #6
GodzillaTrue
Status (unknown)
First reported (unknown)
Discussed (on wiki) (unknown)

Claim

There is some speculation about whether or not Zilla was supposed to have been included in the 2007 video game Godzilla: Unleashed.

Confirmation

Although many claims are doubtful and unverifiable, it has lately been concluded that Zilla was considered for the game.

Simon Strange (developer of the game) announced in an interview that Zilla was considered to become a playable monster during the game's early stages of development but was scrapped due to a lack of popularity among fans, although it turned out a great amount of fans actually complained about the monster not being in the game.[2][3][4] The popularity status could appearantly be seen and confirmed in a poll on Japan's website, although this is unverifiable and the creature's popularity has evidently changed since then, seeing how fans complain about the game not including Zilla as a playable monster.

Simon Strange Talks Zilla In Godzilla Unleashed

A preview of the game provided by Worthplaying and written by Geson Hatchett on November 13, 2007, speaks of which monsters were going to be seen in the game and mentions "Godzilla 2000 (along with that horrid American '90s one that all Godzilla fans try to forget).[5] This article even spawned a discussion about whether or not the former statement in the article was refering to the American Godzilla or the Japanese Godzilla from the Heisei Era[6], although the fact that the creature was called "that horrid American 90's one" makes it clear that the reviewer refers to the American Godzilla from 1998.

Status (unknown)
First reported (unknown)
Discussed (on wiki) (unknown)

Claim

There is also a claim that "if you use the cheat 204935, and then play all the levels that unlock monsters correctly (like playing as an earth defender in "Rumble in the Surf" and smashing a glowing building)" you should be able to unlock characters like Zilla, King Kong, Godzilla Jr., Gamera, Battra, Monster X, and C-rex. The person who claimed this also stated that on the source website for this information, 67% of the people who tried the cheat claims that it works.[8]

Confirmation

The source website was probably CheatMasters.com, but currently, despite that the site doesn't mention the cheat code, the percentage of people rating this cheat code as good is now 61%.[9] It is currently unconfirmed whether this cheat actually works or not, although it is regarded a myth.
