Films: Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001)
Location: Ocean/Forest/Civilized Area
Height/Weight: 60 meters and 30,000 metric tons.
Summary: Godzilla is...actually, can you even call this Godzilla? Before then, we knew the monster king as an irradiated dinosaur. But now...it's something quite different. Something that takes the old allegories of the first one, and takes them to the extreme.
History: A collective of all the vengeful spirits of the Japanese soldiers who were killed in WWII, Godzilla was dead-set on making the modern world pay for their forgetfulness. He would destroy all modern cities, only then would the spirits rest. But while Japan races to figure out how to defeat him, at least one ghost is actually out to summon the guardian monsters to do that instead.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: Godzilla manages to take out all three guardian monsters, but their spirits help weaken him enough for a sub to shoot a massive missile into him. It causes his thermonuclear breath to enter out of a hole in his side, and his nuclear power to overload and explode. However, his beating heart is still left...
Powers/Abilities: Godzilla is near-indestructible, has thermonuclear energy that he can actually tilt, and sometimes he can even absorb other attacks for greater power.
Weakness: Beings of equal or greater power, attacks from the inside.
Scariness Factor: 4.5-This is perhaps the one version of Godzilla that even tries to come close to looking like the very first version. And because of that, it is instantly unnerving. But not nearly as much as the fact that he has those cold, soulless eyes. Combined with his insane origin, this version of the big G doesn't mess around.
Trivia: -This version of Godzilla has the tallest suit out of all the other incarnations.
-The concept of "Ghost Godzilla" has been around since the Heisei series, with him supposed to be the final opponent at the end. It was scrapped due to there being enough monsters based explicitly on him at the time. He was considered as a NECA toy, but Toho denied it.
