Would you like Space Godzilla better if he had a different name?

I find myself... Not not being able to take Space Godzilla seriously. Just because of the name.

They didn't go and call Biollante "Plant Godzilla" or Ogra "Clone Godzilla."

Anyone else struggle with not appreciating Space Godzilla because of the way they named him?

No, not really. I think the name is fine.

She looks way more like Godzilla than Orga or Biollante do, so I get it. I think it works. I like the design a ton.

Not really... Can't think off the top of my head any monsters I dislike simply because they have an awkward name. If anything, I wish they'd gone a more original route with the design instead of making him a crystal Super Godzilla. But the name never bothered me. He's a Godzilla from space!

His name never bothered me. His movie, on the other hand...

While I do find the name "Spacegodzilla" corny sounding I nonetheless like the monster on its own merit.

The name is fine with me. I like SG; It's the movie that I find sub par.
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."

Nah, I love the silly name.

SpaceGodzilla's name is fine. He's an extraterrestrial crystalline Godzilla clone, it suits him. It's not any less than creative than "Mechagodzilla" or "Super Godzilla" or "Burning Godzilla."

Spacegodzilla works just fine as a name. Mechagodzilla's name is unchanged, so why should the same be done for SG?
My most wanted fight ever is Discord vs Bobobo-bo bo-bobo.
Godzilla has a regen like Wolverine, a skin like Luke Cage, a hero aura like Captain America, a strength like Hulk, an unstoppability like Juggernaut, an immortality like Deadpool.

There's a 'God' in Godzilla for a reason...

It’s the movie, not the monster at all, they also gave SpaceGodzilla enough interesting powers and abilities to make him much more different then Godzilla.

I don't really mind his name.
He's just such a dumb and unoriginal concept.
"Uuuhhh, we know we just had two Godzilla clones in our latest movies, but uuuuhhhh... at least we'll wait a few more years to give you another Super-X!"

Let me get it clear: I like Godzilla's clones. Biollante, MechaGodzilla and Orga were interesting concepts, but SpaceGodzilla... ugh.
Maybe if they waited more years and twisted his design a lot more, but I don't really know or care for him. His movie sucks.
