History

The "G-Force Versus G Final Mecha", G-END would have been constructed by G-Force to combat Burning Godzilla.

Pitched by Toho monster designer Shinji Nishikawa in the early stages of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995), G-END drew influence from a variety of sources, including various G-Force weaponry, Mechani-Kong from King Kong Escapes (1967), Moguera from Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (1994), Gunhed (1989), and Macross. However, as giant human-made robots had appeared in the previous two Godzilla movies, the proposal for G-END was ultimately rejected.

Trivia
  • The featured concept artwork can be found in the 2016 Japanese publication Shinji Nishikawa: Drawing Book of Godzilla (ISBN: 480030959X), while slightly more in-depth information is featured in both Heisei Godzilla Perfection (ISBN: 4048861190) and Koichi Kawakita's book Heisei Godzilla Chronicle (ISBN: 4873763193).
  • According to Nishikawa, G-END's appearance was intentionally designed to appear hulking yet slow, similarly to Kawakita's mechas from previous movies such as Gunhed and Moguera. While various concepts for G-END exist, none of its abilities are specified.
