You said: "Your most powerful ray can blow chunks out of the kaiju that is killing you but you never use it?"
Yes, SpaceGodzilla's most powerful ray can and has done that. 'Why doesn't he use it all the time then?' is what you were getting at. The same can be said about why Destoroyah neglected to use his Horn Katana all the time.
There are many reasons. Negligence, overconfidence, necessity, energy dependence, etc... These kaiju, while smart as far as kaiju go, aren't smart by our standards. Why they did or didn't do this is irrelevant when it comes down to whether or not they can
And you have no evidence backing up a supposed stronger corona beam. The color, size, shape, charge time, etc did not change in the slightest.
Once again you backpedal. Newsflash, poking holes in my theory doesn't make you right. It's safe to say your theory has been squashed since you can't provide evidence.
My theory, on the other hand, is loaded with evidence.
1) SpaceGodzilla's Corona Beam struck Godzilla's shoulder. This blast was so much stronger than the other Corona Beams because it not only wounded Godzilla, it floored him and kept him immobile for a few minutes.
2) 1:12:34 into the movie, SpaceGodzilla's Corona Beam hit MOGUERA, and floored
the 160,000-ton robot. MOGUERA didn't move for hours, since he was brought down when the skies were blue, and didn't retreat 'til it was well after dark. Last time I checked, the Corona Beam didn't always do this
, which means this Corona Beam was packing more energy.
3) 1:15:27 into the movie, SpaceGodzilla's Corona Beam brings Godzilla down. Godzilla stays down long enough for SpaceGodzilla to lift him up and throw him with his Gravity Tornado. Either Godzilla remained powerless during this time because the Corona Beam incapacitated him or the Gravity Tornado had paralyzing effects. Opinions vary.
4) SpaceGodzilla's Corona Beam strikes MOGUERA's cone-shaped hand so hard, it tears the arm completely off. I'll go into more detail about this one in a moment.
Anyway, it's common sense. SpaceGodzilla's Corona Beams usually didn't
floor Godzilla or MOGUERA. You could argue it's because SpaceGodzilla's Corona Beams weren't quick bursts like the other instances. That's great, it only proves my point because... MORE ENERGY WAS BEING USED
Which is why I referred to it as a freak instance earlier in this thread, because the corona beam never came close to dealing that much damage again to Godzilla.
I guess that makes Destoroyah's Horn Katana a freak instance too, because it never was used again and the damage it inflicted on Godzilla varied even in the span of two swipes.
Besides, the movie clearly shows SG rotating the corona beam around the arm:
Here we see the corona beam come in from the right side, bypassing the cone all together.
Now here it starts rotating. It changes it's trajectory and goes over the open portion of the cone.
Time to debunk this.
^ Here we see SpaceGodzilla firing his 'Hyper Corona Beam'. Notice how his horn is actually crackling with energy? If I'm not mistaken, that's the first time it's ever looked like that. It looks like that because it's funneling more energy into the Corona Beam.
^ Here we see the Corona Beam stopping right in front of MOGUERA's cone-shaped hand
, which is opened.
^ Notice the sparks? They're shooting out of MOGUERA's cone-hand, not behind it. The top picture doesn't show the Corona Beam swerving behind the cone to strike the joint like GojiFan believes. No, the white-hot tip of the Corona Beam hasn't even 'regrown' yet. It regrows in time in the bottom picture, which we see once again striking the cone-hand dead on
. Sparks ONCE AGAIN shoot out of the cone-hand, which should tell everyone here it was hit by the Corona Beam.
Just in case some of you aren't convinced...
^ Next we see a different angle taken immediately after. See how the sparks aren't
shooting out of the joint which is, y'know, the spot that's about to be snapped off like a twig? Notice how they're nowhere near it?
^ Finally, we see the arm get blown off.
In this entire scene, MOGUERA's joint--the part that was ripped off--was never
hit directly by the Corona Beam. What does this mean? It means the Corona Beam hit MOGUERA's hand so freakin' hard, it made his arm come flying off because it packed so much more force and energy than usual. This is why I called it the 'Hyper Corona Beam'.
You know why I don't believe you? Because SG had more energy when he fought Godzilla the second time and we never see a beam of that strength used against him again.
So then by your logic, since we never
saw Destoroyah's Oxygen Destroyer Beam floor Godzilla again, since it only happened once, we should assume it'd never happen more than once in this match up. Going once step further, since Destoroyah only used his Horn Katana twice, we should assume he'd never bother to use it again, especially if it didn't inflict any fatal injuries on SpaceGodzilla.
That logic sucks.
