They each have their own individuality, which differentiates them from one another. The main one, for me anyway, is that MechaGodzilla is a tool, whereas Godzilla is free to do whatever he wants.
So, first of all, your defintions are contradicting themselves. You're being overly specific here, for no other purpose than being right, whereas below, you're being overly general... so you can be right.
But the fact is, they're identical. They're both weapons of mass destruction. Their 'purpose' is irrelevent; on a conceptual level, they are truly no different. Massive, incredibly dangerous weapons. You're the one nitpicking details here.
They're both protecting something very similar on a grand scale, and that's what I'm looking at.
In that case, with such a general 'definition', NO monsters are truly different. On a grand scale, most monsters exist for the same purpose, and by your definition, are bad concepts then.
Before you continue this argument, pick a stance: look at the general idea of the monsters (IE Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla concepts) or the specific idea (Mothra Vs. Battra concepts).
For the record, I find Mechagodzilla is nothing like Godzilla. It is the details that make them different. You're using two different arguments for the same thing. That's why everyone is, for lack of a better term, ganging up on you. I'm merely pointing out the flaw in your rationalizations.
