I also liked the Ice Borers. They weren't as big a threat to Zilla, but they were good monsters.
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."

I wish this show had a more clear idea of how to handle Godzilla. Some eps he is one of the characters, others he's just another monster, and in some of the worst Godzilla feels like an afterthought in his own show!

Speaking of treating Godzilla inconsistently, one thing that always drove me nuts about the show was how it would continuously show us Godzilla tanking military strikes, attacks from other monsters, natural disasters, assaults from alien warships, and everything in between... But then Nick and HEAT would always beg the military not to shoot at Godzilla because they might hurt him.

It made no sense. :lol:

To be fair, one has to remember how fragile the first Zilla was in the '98 movie. Even after he was resurrected and made more powerful as Cyber Zilla, his durability was always questionable. So even though Zilla Jr. WAS far more durable, their concerns were still valid.

Nick does have kind of a father/son relationship with Jr. If someone was beating on your son, you'd tell him to stop.

Cyber-Godzilla was awesome. So was C-Rex and the Cobra.
Honestly it's such a shame we never got a toyline for this.
Sometimes I just gaze at the prototypes and wonder what might have been... :cry: :cry: :cry:

Was there ever an explanation of why Zilla Jr. had an atomic ray but the first Zilla, his biological father, never did until he was resurrected as Cyber Zilla?

I don't think the fans cared, lol.

My head canon explanation was that GINO absolutely had an atomic ray....he just never used it.

And hey, Cyber Zilla (which was made from the corpse of daddy Zilla) had an atomic ray, so that kind of supports my dumb head canon.

All we get is a line in the first ep saying that this Godzilla is different from its parent in biology and personality but who needs an answer other than that
