skreeonking lol

Oh yeah, another "きの" scene I always liked is the reveal of the springs in Mothra vs Godzilla. It's the one area on Infant Island that wasn't destroyed and it's introduction paired with it's melancholic theme is bittersweet.

Shouldn't you have done that in katakana?

Not really sure if it's a favorite in a good way because it's more of a gut punch.

But the scene where the Xilians disintegrate Miss Namikawa in front of Glen for falling in love with him. Hate it but always memorable.

Ghidorah's entrance in G3HM. The build up with the mystery meteor, and then the flaming explosion that takes solid form are an impressive scene.
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."

You know, those are probably my favorite scenes from that movie too. I need to rewatch it soon.

Yeah, say whatever you will about '98, it did have its share of cool moments. Really, that whole initial rampage was a great, unique sequence, from the initial footsteps knocking people off-balance and bouncing cars around to the street-level shots of Godzilla casually stomping his way through the fleeing crowds. Off the top of my head, there's nothing else quite like it in the whole genre.

In Godzilla vs. Mothra where the business guy is too busy killing the other guy over money to evacuate in time, simple but kino.
Drink 32oz of water a day, exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, take your meds as prescribed, eat healthy (count calories), reach out to your support network when you need them, practice basic hygiene, learn from your mistakes, forgive yourself for your failures, admit when you're wrong, be humble when you're right, be nice to animals, and try again.

Many moments to choose from, but here are a few scenes that I love:

1. King Ghidorah's transformation in GMK

2. King Ghidorah's awakening in GTTHM

3. King Ghidorah alpha call in GKOTM

See a pattern here haha.

Other scenes:

1. Godzilla killing Anguirus in Godzilla Raids Again

2. Rodan dropping Godzilla in GTTHM

3. Godzilla Arrival and Fight With Titanosaurus

4. The end of Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah underwater

5. Spacegodzilla vs. Godzilla and Moguera

6. Kiryu's rampage in Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla

Yes! It's great visual storytelling, and it simultaneously feels like a big payoff while also building up the tension further.

Really, the whole of Godzilla Vs Biollante is packed with cool shots and scenes. The psychic kids as mentioned, the scene in the beginning of the soldiers on the run with the G-Cells, the fight between Godzilla and Rose Biollante, so on. Simply brilliant.

This actually might be the single coolest scene in the franchise.

For the Heisei era, it's near number one.

Agreed, near near number one. That was one the scenes that stuck out most the first time I saw it back on my nostalgic HBO VHS.

I'm pretty sure my all-time favorite Godzilla scene will always be the final battle in MG74. Since it was the first movie I ever saw, seeing this as an 8-year-old blew my mind.

Just go straight to 7:05.
