Judging by how many of you are okay with far-fetched ideas such as lost WW2 souls, tail-lasers or even Godzilla being plant-based, how would you feel if Godzilla was not strictly bipedal? For example he would usually rise up on two legs either to breathe fire or navigate through water.
Interesting idea, but I can’t say I’m a fan. They did something similar with Shin Godzilla’s fourth form, then scrapped it, and for good reason.
I think the only way it would work is if you redesigned Godzilla extensively, which is reaching into Zilla territory.
No more different then a bipedal or quadrapedal Spinosaurus are from one another.
When we believed that Spinosaurus was bipedal, we believed it had the same posture as other theropods - its spine held parallel to the ground. Now that we think it was quadrupedal, we still believe that it’s spine was held parallel to the ground.
Godzilla, on the other hand, holds its spine upright, like a Human, so if it was redesigned to be quadrupedal, then it would have to hold its spine like a Spinosaurus - parallel to the ground. That means a 90° rotation of it’s entire body. And, its limbs would have to be roughly the same length, so it would either have really long arms or really short legs.Added in 3 minutes 14 seconds:

Not really. It’s still a giant fire breathing reptile that can survive having a nuke dropped on it.
