Applying that logic to GvsKG completely contradicts what is stated in film.
Besides, the Furturians may be twisting a truth or two.

Interpretations that require revising what the characters actually said are an automatic nope.

And this is why I don't subscribe to the Biollante-as-SpaceGodzilla-progenitor theory. The more you examine it, the more you need invented details to make it work.


While I agree in general principle, if the characters in question are demonstrated liars, I do think there is a little more room to doubt their credibility.

So which statement was contradicted?
This theory's so vague anyway that we'd have to come to compromising conclusions.

The most extreme one is the Futurians' basing their plan to eliminate Godzilla on Terasawa's book about the monster's origin, which he has yet to write in the present. The book no longer exists after the events of the film.

I really like this theory! It's pretty solid for a fan theory and I feel it gives SG a better motive. This gives SG a much better reason to want to kill Godzilla. Revenge.
Also, would this mean SG is female?

I mean , it might. none of the other films really had a reason or need to bring it up.

I would think that his direct involvement in events and knowledge his book would still be around in the future would only encourage him to write the book- even if it doesn't do so well. At least he knows he'll be remembered, by a few, for it.

Not the book the Futurians used to conceive their plan.

Terasawa's book about about -Godzilla being created by the atomic explosion on Lagos Island- does not exist after the events of GvsKG because Terasawa sees Godzilla being removed from Lagos Island before the explosion. Later he learns that Godzilla was created by the sinking of a Russian nuclear submarine in the 1970s. The Futurians can't come from the timeline where the events of GvsKG happen because Terasawa is never going to write a book about Godzilla being created on Lagos Island after he personally witnessed history being changed.

If Terasawa does write a book about Godzilla's origin it will be about the Russian nuclear submarine disaster- which the Futurians did not have in their timeline.

Terasawa may or may not have written a second, different book in the new timeline (if he felt like it I guess?), but that's not what my statement was about.

I wasn't criticizing the Heisei continuity, I was criticizing fanon.

But he has his original book from the future, fully formed. He might still elect to have it published- particularly if he's as confused as most people about the timeline and thinks he needs to maintain predestined events or something.

I agree it is less likely that he published that book... but I don't consider it categorically impossible.

It would require a conspiracy of staggering proportions for predestination to make sense.

Terasawa would have to publish his book from the future when he knows the information is no longer true, governments would need to erase all records of the events of GvsKG so the Futurians can't read about themselves on Wikipedia, King Ghidorah's body has to remain completely hidden just off the coast of Tokyo for 200 years, all knowledge of SpaceGodzilla and Destoroyah has to be suppressed somehow- all things that most certainly didn't happen.

Right. Which isn't what I said. I'm saying that Terasawa, without the overview perspective we have ( with which people still get confused) may think that predestination is the case when it's not... or simply be concerned enough about a paradox from all the sci-fi movies about time travel that he doesn't want to take the chance. IfI had something I made and put out there from the future, I'd want to play it safe and make sure it gets out there as it originally did, no matter how I thought time travel actually worked.

Either way- all he knows about the future is what liars and enemies told him; and he doesn't have an omniscient-narrator perspective or a film analyst to explain events to him. He might be able to puzzle out how we've puzzled out time travel working from his perspective; but he may not. There are people on this board that don't share that understanding, so clearly a lack of understanding is possible even with all of the information that we have in the real world, much less from within the fictional world.

For the sake of argument, why/how does Spacegodzilla turn into Biollante looking spores at the end of the movie? It's kind of uncanny. Granted some source would have confirmed it if that were the case.

I still stand by what I posted earlier in this thread, link.

tl;dr version. Godzilla cell's only take the best genetic material if they are introduced with a new "selection" and discard the rest. Sorta like rapid evolution on a short timer. You can say that is why all Godzilla Cell mutations are horrendously deformed in some way, but I like the contribute that to the Crystal Organism that the cells bonded with "stabilized" the mutations. SpaceG most likely kept the more capable Godzilla body type, with a crystaline structure, and Biollante's cell division and "immortality". The cells probably discarded the unwanted parts such as yucky plants and human soul.

However, that's a discussion for another thread I think. Back to the topic. SpaceGodzilla is a different being from Biollante. Easily on the genetic level they may share some similarities but according to the cutaway's and reasonable deduction, most of if not all of the Biollante traits were discarded in favor of a superior crystal host. A fully formed Biollante would most likely resemble something more akin to the poster or even a plant based Godzilla but due to her own adverse reaction to Godzilla's beam, we can probably never know since she just probably horrendously mutates. I don't consider SpaceG to be a Biollante but more of a way distant offshot.
