What makes GMK the worst one for you? I must say, I rather liked the agility of it. Hardly my favorite Mothra, but...

Maybe because it was a little wasp like?

On topic, the Heisei version is alright, but the wings were too fuzzy for me.
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."

The interesting thing about this Mothra to me is the fact that she didn't start spamming beams until AFTER she shared energy with Battra. It's very possible that Battra gave Mothra her powers after they agreed to help each other out. That's why Mothra didn't fight back after the initial clash with Battra. She didn't have the ability to combat his beams

Aside from the AWFUL flying effects, this is a good Mothra. I think the beam spam suits this incarnation but she also does a decent amount of melee fighting as well. I also like that she returns to a slightly antagonistic role.

That's an interesting observation. I never thought about it.

I have never noticed this. Going to have to pay attention to this the next time I watch.

I just wanted Battra in the RoM series, that’d be a better payoff.

Not my favorite Mothra, but I prefer it to the Showa and GMK designs. Tokyo S.O.S./Final Wars Mothra is the best design for me. I just thought this one was maybe a bit too chubby, especially in the legs.
