A cloak on MG?

Yeah........no.

To have that perfect shot of his cloak flowing in the wind?

Having him have a Godzilla disguise ala Showa and having the synthetic skin torn to shreds with the remains flapping like a cloak around its shoulders during his full mecha reveal would be a cool sight. (It would get rid of the "cloak" immediately afterwards for efficiency but still)

Protection against scrapnel, fire retardant (especially needy if you're going up against a fire-breathing nuclear dinosaur) etc.

I mean it'd definitely need a wicked design to work.

Protection against shrapnel? Really? It’s a robot designed to battle against giant skreeonking monsters lmao, if it’s at risk of getting damaged by shrapnel of all things, whoever created the damn thing needs to go back to the drawing board :lol:

A giant cloak on Mechagodzilla would serve zero purpose other than to make him look edgy, let’s be real here.

Yeah, I kinda agree. Depending on how it looks I guess you could make it look cool, but it really serves zero purpose.

Kinda like those horned lizards that shoot blood out of their eyes? That'd be sweet. Make the blood acidic like a xenomorph even.

Monster Hunter's Baruragaru is the cause of my desire for it. It's quite an interesting monster.

I prefer the 98' design over the aborted 94 design.

To me the 94' design looks too clean and crocodile. At least the 98' design looks like an original monster.

I also really really like Anime Goji's design.

Do most people not? I always loved the eco-godzilla thing, even though I've never seen the trilogy. Everything I've seen of the design looks fantastic to me.

Are we talking the Stan Winston/Crash McCreary design or Ricardo Delgado’s design? I guess it’s a confession that I think the Winston/Crash design is overrated and prefer Delgado’s concept for reasons somewhat similar to your own, the Winston design looks far too green and has kind of a weird build (and some drawings gave him lips that completely covered his teeth and give him an oddly friendly look)while Delgado’s has a nice sort of sleek predator vibe.

The one picture I do like of the Winston design is the concept art of him battling F-14s

The sumo build, while neat in concept, looks kind of weird in certain angles; coupled with the strangely kind face that contrasts with his vicious nature he’s not really my favorite
I do enjoy the “earthy” tree-inspired aspects of the design though

I dislike the Anime Godzillas design.
I get that it invokes the feeling of an old wise man + a really old tree but it just seems so... boring. I hate the head and neck specifically.
Anime Ghidorah is worse in every way though (Lazy Servum recolour).
