Wanna hear some bullshit? "It's a conspiracy! So what if Toho explicitly said that Godzilla has super regen? Clearly they're lying just to mess with us." Sorry. Godzilla has it, and so does every monster that shares his cells.

Thus it's clear that it doesn't exist.

Well I'd certainly take the word of "God" over your word any day.

It is an actual power of his. You just have "regen envy" because Gomora doesn't have it. It won't turn the tide in every fight involving every incarnation of Godzilla, but Gira Goji's regen is so ridiculous that wounds heal in an instant. He's borderline unkillable. He was never in danger from Megaguirus. Not even from that energy blast which may be one of the most powerful in kaiju eiga (considering what powered it).

So remembering that Godzilla has regen somehow makes it the #1 most important factor?
an integral art of the character and as a result they made it a plot point in G2K. Do you know why it was a relatively major plot point in a Godzilla movie about Godzilla? Because Godzilla has it.
