I suppose so but that doesn't change the fact that he has a job as protector of nature and apex predator too. Otherwise why would he chase the MUTOs and Shinomura around so relentlessly?
Yeah he does definitely care about his own life and was quite pissed when he first emerged and saw the humans and would have probably killed them if he didn't realize that they were on his side. He's smart enough to differentiate between humans that threaten him and are against nature, humans that help him and are in tune with nature, and humans that just do their own thing and are a small part of nature.
This is the vibe I'm getting from this Godzilla really. He's more than just an animal that protects itself, but not exactly a superhero that wants to actively protect all life either. He just wants what's best for the world's natural order. Whether that means protecting humans, attacking them, or even just ignoring them, he'll fulfill his duty as the guardian of the balance of nature. He might just do this coincidentially as an apex predator with normal animal behavior, but there's no question that there's some deeper though behind his actions too, as seen when he looks the human characters in the eye and we can tell that he's thinking something about them.
Well, yes, in a way, it is. Godzilla is the highest predator and the whole Earth is its territory, he, like any other animal, will protect its territory. From the perspective of human characters, this can be called restoration of balance. about muto and shinamuro: it has already been established that he hunted them to prevent his death. mutos multiply very quickly and ultimately could displace Godzilla by the number and Shinamuro, as stated in the comic, grows very progressively and can become so large that even Godzilla does not stop it. there are no divine motives. Godzilla is just an animal, albeit very smart. But okay. I won’t persuade you. Everyone has their own vision.
