Maybe they could rework a Bride of Godzilla film?

...no

Also Gojirin is a ridiculous name, if they ever had a female Godzilla they wouldn’t keep the name most likely. They also wouldn’t keep it pink.

They could make it a dull red or something, with rounder dorsal plates.

Not unless she garners an unprecedented boost in popularity for a long period of time, particularly among Japanese audiences.

Or becomes a meme.

I'd be down to see Godzilla have a mate in a film. I think if done right it could work really well.

What the Hell are you people talking about?
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

This is Gojirin. I don't think Toho will ever bring her back.

Gojirin looks like what happens when you breed Care Bears with Bubble Bobble Dragons.

Seriously though, if they ever brought her into the movies, they'd have to completely re-work her. I guess she works fine for educational cartoons for preschoolers, but for a Godzilla movie, I'm going to lose my mind if I see a pink Godzilla with heart shaped dorsal fins. That would have been pushing it even in the 70s.

Toho might not bring her specifically back, but I could see them eventually doing a mate for Godzilla at some point.

Why WOULDN'T Toho bring back an obscure character from a short-lived series of small children's media from the early 1990s for a major film role?

Trying to think of a reason...

Drawing a blank.

Godzilla has done everything else I figure at some point Toho will try to do a marriage film even if it just ends with the female killed.

Wasn't there an episode of Godzilla: The Series that did that?

I guess I wouldn't be against a movie giving us a "Mrs. Godzilla" either, but if you seriously think they'll just update the "Gojirin" character or adapt the old Bride of Godzilla script, you're crazy.

While the cartoon gave Zilla a mate, I don't know about a movie doing the same. I doubt Toho would try it, but if they did, the film would likely go light on any romantic relationhip between the two and focus more on the threat of them creating offspring.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

Maybe we can finally see the womanizer side of Godzilla that we've only gotten glimpses of in his public appearances.
