@GodzillaFan1992: Synapsids still existed into the Triassic, so it's very possible an early ancestor of Godzilla's escaped the Permian-Triassic extinction.
Point taken there, but I'd still like to think that Godzilla is a Rausisuchian since they first appeared 250 million years ago, the time Godzilla was born, so perhaps his species were part of the Rauisuchian family and among the first ones to evolve.
I can see where you're coming from of course, seeing as the Permian-Triassic extinction was big (there's a reason it's other name is the great dying which you don't name anything unless it was big) and what's sort of a problem with both of our theories is the gills.
The gills are the same reason Steve Alten gave evolved Kronosaurus' gills in his book The Trench.
That and evolution has ways to having animals adapt, it's also called fiction for you.
