Favourite of the Showa Godzilla Aliens

Post by Voyager »

I’ve always loved the Simeons. Their jumpsuits, their personalities, their monsters, they’re just so 70s and I love it. 2nd place goes to the Xiliens, I love Miss Namikawa and X.

Xiliens had the best outfits and the clearest motivation so they get my vote.

I love them all, but i gotta give it to the Xiliens. I just love their costume design so much.

And as a kid i remember reading pseudo science books that had sections on "Planet X" or a planet beyond pluto lol.

I vote for the Simeons. Those silver costumes were very sci fi, but those helmets made the whole uniform. A big part of the reason is Kuronuma from G vs MG. He doesn't have the class of the Xilien leader, but he has the charm and vaudevillian feel that fit the film perfectly.

My personal favorite were the Xiliens, but a close second would have to be the M Space Hunter aliens. I love all the aliens in the Showa era, but those two hold the highest spot for me.

Going for the good old Black Hole aliens because.. well, it's freaking alien apes. How much more hammy can you get?

Difficult decision, but I will say that I do like them all, though the Kilaaks I like the least. Probably because they are the first, the Xiliens are one of the best, and since Gigan is one of my favorite Godzilla films (of the 1970s), I do like Nebula Space Hunter M. The same would go for the Simians, but it is glaring that although they are supposed to be the same race (and the same actor Goro Mutusmi, plays the Simian leader in each film) it is still glaring that those in Terror of Mechagodzilla are not the same type as those in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (though I could see them continuing the Planet of the Apes theme with the first representing the apes and the second representing the irradiated humans).

Simeons for sure, ToMG makes them downright terrifying.

They do show a bigger cruel streak than in the previous film.

Simeons are a good choice. I picked the Nebulans because they got the best style, hands down.
I think the "real" answer is the Xiliens, because they're so iconic. But for me, you can't beat drippy cockroaches*.

*with their own kaiju theme park that also hand out free cigarettes

The Nebulan's...I think more should have been done with the theme park. Like maybe make it functional but...off. And then you slowly realized its a theme park made for cockroach people rather than humans.

Suspicions would probably have grown earlier on if the park was filled with giant refrigerators, ovens and garbage cans that everyone ran under as soon as the sun came up/lights in the park turned on.

The Xliens are objectively more fleshed out and iconic, and therefore in a serious scenario I would pick them. However, generally speaking I like the Nebulans as the thought of giant cockroaches desperately trying to pass as human is amusing.
