Films: Godzilla 2000: Millennium (1999), Godzilla vs. Megaguirus (2000), Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla (2002), Godzilla: Tokyo SOS (2003)
Location: Ocean/Civilized Area/Mountains
Height/Weight: Up to 55 meters and 25,000 metric tons.
Summary: After the absolute disaster a year earlier involving our favorite radioactive lizard, Toho stepped into the game once more to deliver the king of all kaiju goodness. Thing is, a lot of their works would be very standalone. Sorry continuity fans.
History: Just about every film in this group of films picks up from where the original 1954 attack left off. In at least one, the Oxygen Destroyer didn't even kill Godzilla. The only stories with any real connection to each other were the ones with Mechagodzilla, or Kiryu. Either way, Godzilla is always coming back, either because of aliens, mutated dragonflies, or the fact that someone used his predecessor's bones to make a giant robot.
Notable Kills: See how most of his foes perish.
Final Fate: Godzilla beat Orga, took a black hole-based laser to the face twice, and in the connected films, was sunk alongside Kiryu into the depths below so that humanity couldn't harm him again.
Powers/Abilities: Thermonuclear breath, major durability, and the ability to conduct electricity.
Weakness: Beings of equal or greater power.
Scariness Factor: 4.5-It's Godzilla, what did you expect? And this time, he's sporting a rather more aggressive look and disposition. This is the monster king in his finest condition, though not necessarily his most scrupulous, either.
Trivia: -The whole reason that Toho made the Millennium series was because of the failure of 1998's American remake. They were originally going to wait ten years after "Destroyah", but they knew that G-Fans everywhere needed a palette cleanser ASAP.
-After the American release of "Millennium", the guys at Sony wanted to make another American Godzilla movie, known as "Godzilla Reborn", in which the monster king would go up against a magma monster known as Miba. Alas, it fell through due to Sony's head not wanting to have a low-budget film on their resume.
