Bro, you do realize there is something called instant paralysis. And Godzilla was
doing quite a bit of squirming.
Did you know that in the previous copies of the plot, Godzilla literally explodes into pieces from all that hardcore firepower from SMG?
To make the movie more kid friendly, they changed it from exploding to just being dead and revived from Fire Rodan. So much for the "doesn't have to be dead to make that happen" shtick.
Or, y'know, they decided not to kill Godzilla at all. Toho has done this before.
They aren't dead either.
...ok. I'm not sure how that helps your case, though.
I was referring to classic Frankenstein from the German movies. My point was that a dead thing in science fiction can be brought back to life, specially in these kinds of movies. I'm also fairly sure that Godzilla Jr and Gamera were killed in their respective movies and had to be revived through a miracle.
I'll concede for Biollante though.
I'll recant my statement about Gamera. I can see Gamera being brought back from the dead. There does appear to be an ever so slightly supernatural element to the Gamera Trilogy.
But it's blatantly obvious, throughout the entire Heisei series, that radiation is what revives Godzilla.
Case in point:
- In Godzilla Returns: Godzilla is revived by that radiation cloud from the missile.
-In Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah: a godzillasaurus is mortally wounded. Exposure to radiation...transforms it into a 300ft tall, radioactive, super monster completely healed of all his wounds and strength rejuvenated.
-In Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla II, Godzilla's secondary brain had been torn apart and godzilla would have likely died. However, Fire Rodan melted down, and the ensuing radiation knitted the brain together in a matter of seconds.
-In Godzilla vs. Destroyah, we have a seemingly dead 45 meter tall, 15,000 toned Godzilla Junior. Then Burning Godzilla melted down, and in a matter of minutes, Godzilla Junior absorbed all the radiation, transforming into a 100 meter tall 60,000 ton kaiju.
So yes. Godzilla Jr. was revived by a miracle. But it was a miracle rooted completely in science fiction. He wasn't brought back from the dead. The radiation from his father's meltdown revived him from a coma-like state.
Mothra, Biollante, Battra and Fire Rodan did supernatural stuff dude.
Fire Rodan and Battra sure as hell didn't. Mothra never really did anything that couldn't be explained science fictionally. Biollante as well. Unless you take the whole "Biollante is made up of Godzilla cells, a rose, and a human soul" seriously.
Rodan gave his life force to Godzilla by disintegrating himself, which is supernaturally impossible to happen, but since it did....
No, rodan just melted down and the ensuing radiation revived Godzilla. As shown above, Godzilla has been brought back from near death situations via radiation before. Unless you think Burning Godzilla melting down is also supernaturally impossible...
