Possibly, but that has no relevance here. Stop trying to pull logical fallacies. All I was doing was correcting you for your own benefit, because people often confuse silicon and silicone in common speech.
Budget and film quality have no bearing whatsoever on the intelligence of a kaiju, so I don't see why you'd bother bringing this up. I'm pretty sure no one would argue against the Heisei Gamera movies being higher quality than the Heisei Godzilla movies. It's a pretty obvious fact.I guess you can think Gamera is a tactical failure if you want but if you ask me Kaneko did what he could with what he had to work with. The Heisei Gamera movies had less budget than the Heisei Godzilla movies and arguably are better.
Every single shot fired into the Soldier Legion penetrated it, and they absolutely were not aimed at the joints. There's also the scene where a surgical saw easily cut through its shell, which was again in the middle of a solid piece of it and not anywhere near a joint.Anyway since most kaiju are of Earth and based off of carbon what matters is the difference between the two which was my point. Especially if the silicon creature doesn't have traditional organs or even blood. If Legion was as brittle as you are trying to make her out to be it wouldn't have taken multiple handgun shots to finally draw gas blood through the worker Legion, which mind you was fired on a weaker joint area.
Ah, but step back and think about that statement for a moment. How many times did Gamera actually land blows on Legion throughout their battles? The only times he did, damage was inflicted. He tore off her horns, and the Mana beam vaporized her. Gamera's problem was landing blows on Legion in the first place, not her shrugging off the blows he did land.Gamera would also have shattered her in a few blows.
This is just patently false. Godzilla was more vicious in GvK than he's ever been.Contrast that with Kong who is your typical carbon based lifeform. As shown in his fight with Godzilla, one good hit can take him out of the fight if he gets hit in a vulnerable spot like a shoulder joint or his ribs. Godzilla pretty much acted out of character most of the fight just to extend the fight for our enjoyment by not beating Kong too fast.
No, Legion has the far greater weakness of being unable to actually hit anything in the first place.Legion does not have this weakness.
You keep citing Legion's durability. I've already explained why this is false: the only attacks she withstood were things that are considered bare minimum for a kaiju to not be considered made of tissue paper.While this match sets it up so Legion's ranged power is basically negated so Kong get's the superior attack power in this fight, he is at a disadvantage in the durability area. If we rolled dice for multiple takes of this match Kong would might win some of them as this is close but I am still siding with the minority that I think Legion's durability gives a slight edge here.
Gamera's shell has objectively shown to be less durable than concrete: in G3, Iris' arm spear easily penetrated his shell with no resistance, both entering and exiting. Later on, the same spear struggled to bury itself in a concrete wall when pinning Gamera's hand to it.Gamera isn't as durable as Godzilla except for perhaps his shell. Since Legion has the melee attack power to go through that it certainly is going to go through Kong. If he just gets hit in a non vital area he could probably shrug it off and keep cleaving although nothing is really stopping Legion from just stabbing him again. I think the only real damage Kong could do is when the axe is charged. Otherwise he's going to get stabbed. Fatally. Kong may have the axe but Legion has the pikes.
Even ignoring that and going with the rather silly assumption Legion's limbs would indeed be immediately lethal to Kong, you're acting like Kong is just gonna stand there and let himself get stabbed like Gamera did. This goes against everything we saw of him in the movie. Kong is a very agile kaiju that is very adept at dodging, blocking, parrying, and generally avoiding taking damage. And that was against opponents far faster and more physically capable than Legion.
