Since being awoken by Atomic bombs, Godzilla has lit up the silver-screen
but his looks seem to be ever-changing.
Starting with the original, let's go through his theatrical looks and story...animated!
In his first ever appearance, Godzilla has small arms, thick legs, and dorsal plates down his spine.
His pupils are tiny, and he has fangs and pointy ears. After attacking Japan, he gets disintegrated to bone.
A new Gigantis –whoops I mean Godzilla – appears in Godzilla Raids Again.
This monster is thinner, with longer arms, a smaller head, and larger pupils.
When in close-ups, his teeth appear to be jutting out. Sadly, he's buried in ice...
...but in King Kong Vs. Godzilla he busts free.
He's now in color, is more plump, toe-less, and has a lizard-like head with yellow eyes, no ears and no fangs.
He faces off against a giant Ape, tumbling into the ocean.
Only to be washed ashore in Mothra Vs. Godzilla.
Now, he's slimmer, has a wider head, white eyes and smooth, shiny brows.
As his rampage continues, he gets covered in silk and again drops into the sea.
But in Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster he's back!
Now with a slimmer face and longer tongue.
From this film on in the original series, Godzilla now defends humanity from more evil monsters.
In Invasion of Astro-Monster, Godzilla is thinner, his dorsal plates have more definition, his claws are dull, and his head is rounder.
He shows off his new dance moves, before briefly being put under alien mind-control.
Ebirah, Horror of the Deep gives Godzilla less angry brows.
He battles against a big lobster, and narrowly escapes an exploding island.
In the sequel, Godzilla's neck is elongated, he's pudgier, and his dorsal fins are flimsy looking.
His nose is also stubbier and his eyes are bugged out. Oh – and he's now raising a hideous son.
In Destroy All Monsters, he's slimmer, while his face appears more like it did in Astro-Monster.
He's put under alien mind-control again, but once free of their control he turns on the them.
For the next three sequels his look remains consistent.
In the first, he helps his son face off against a bully.
However, this all takes place inside the dreams of a young boy, so... moving on.
Next, in Godzilla Vs. Hedorah, he opposes a pollution monster,
and when curled up like a shrimp he can now fly backwards.
In Godzilla Vs. Gigan, Godzilla has gained the ability to speak,
while his suit – oops I mean skin – starts ripping during his triumphant battle.
He appears slimmer in Godzilla Vs. Megalon, with a shorter neck, soft bright dorsal fins, and a round pig-nosed face.
He boasts a long-distance dropkick,
but this movie is mostly about a size-changing robot...so let's keep going.
n the next two films, Godzilla has an angrier expression and more detailed muzzle.
He uses a magnetic upgrade to protect an ancient god from MechaGodzilla,
and in the sequel, faces him once more.
But this timelines Godzilla is sent to retirement...
...and 9 years later a reboot Godzilla appears!
This one's taller, has larger dorsal fins, a fourth toe, and his fangs and ears make a return.
Although his reign is short-lived as he trips into a Volcano...
...only to explode out in the sequel.
He has a smaller head, a more muscular build, larger outer fins and a cat-like face with a secondary row of teeth.
He takes on a giant plant-monster, who gets turned into glitter.
In Godzilla Vs. King Ghidorah his original form, the Godzillasaurus,
Is taken out of the 1940's and exposed to modern-day radiation,
turning him into a taller, muscular and angrier looking Godzilla.
He fights Mecha-King Ghidorah and then gets dumped into the ocean.
In Godzilla Vs. Mothra, he's thinner, his dorsal plates are rearranged and his neck is more ribbed.
His head is flatter and he has golden eyes.
He battles against Mothra and Battra, and once again is plunged into the ocean and locked in by Mothra's magical powers.
But - somehow - in Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla 2, he's back!
He has slimmed down shoulders and slimmer legs.
He's also raising a blue-toned baby Godzilla.
This time he's defeated when his butt-brain is destroyed,
but he's easily revitalized just moments later.
Godzilla Vs. SpaceGodzilla features:
The bulkier original, with less detailing on his neck and larger eyes;
Godzilla Jr. who is taller, and chubbier with a greener color-scheme;
And a large flying blue crystallized SpaceGodzilla, who gets obliterated.
In this timeline's final film, Godzilla is glowing orange
and his son now looks more like a hunched version of his father.
When the original big G has a meltdown, his son absorbs the radiation and turns into the new Godzilla ready for action!
But the series would be continually rebooted, dropping him altogether.
The first American Godzilla appears as a large mutated iguana with blue dorsal spines and hanging dewlap.
This Godzilla also has hundreds of tiny raptor-looking off-spring,
but this happy family is easily taken out by basic explosives.
Back in Japan: in Godzilla 2000, he appears shorter, with green jagged skin, sharp purple spines, and a reptilian looking face.
While he's nearly swallowed whole, he's good to go for the next reboot, Godzilla Vs. Megaguirus,
in which he is lighter, with a longer neck, flatter head and smaller mouth.
He defeats a giant flying insect, and is then sent into a black hole.
In Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, Godzilla is formed by the ghosts of vengeful World War 2 victims.
He has smooth charcoal colored skin, large claws, white dorsal fins, and a hunched neck.
His face is less lizard like, with pure white eyes and no ears.
But this Godzilla is mutilated by a drill missile, leaving only his beating heart behind.
The following reboot, Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, re-adds the jagged design elements,
and introduces a more wolf-like face.
In the climax, he's blasted by a beam, adding a visible scar to his chest for the sequel, Tokyo: S.O.S.,
in which he's covered in silk, and again flown to the bottom of the sea.
Godzilla: Final Wars features a taller, smoother and more slender Godzilla,
with longer ears and red eyes.
This Godzilla fights against a multitude of creatures
– including an upright standing '98 'Zilla –
– then he and his hideous son head back to the ocean.
In Shin Godzilla, he's first shown as a light-colored and arm-less creature,
But quickly evolves, growing tiny arms, and becoming more red with bloody accents.
His massive main form is darker with a much longer tail that has a little face on the end.
His jaw can unhinge and split apart, and he has a variety of handy new skills.
He can also apparently reproduce human-hybrids from his tail-tip,
But he's given a freezing agent, ceasing his evolution.
The Anime Trilogy depicts a muscular rounded Godzilla with a tree bark-like texture.
Nineteen thousand years later, he sports beard-like spikes and grows to his largest on-screen size,
Easily allowing him to become the ruler of Earth.
Meanwhile back in 2014, a plump American Godzilla appears.
This Titan has jagged dorsal plates, wide elephant-like feet and noticeable gills.
He comes out of hiding to stop two hideous star-crossed lovers.
In Godzilla: King of the Monsters he's taller and beefier,
His lower half looks less stubby, his tail tip is more blunt, and his dorsal fins are less sharp and artfully glowing.
Later, he's given extra radiation and after ashes rain down on him
He gets a firey new look and power upgrade.
Helping him to retain his Kingly crown.
Have you ever wondered how a radioactive super-monster manages to stay so handsome?
