It's just hard for me to believe that all things considered. Even more so considering how we don't fully know how strong he is/how poorly he's handled character wise.


Well, the lead Xilien explains that "Keizer" is some type of ultra-evolved version of a species. Pair that with the fact that Keizer Ghidorah is the final opponent in the film (and at this point Godzilla's final opponent ever) and it seems pretty clear that he's supposed to be at least the strongest monster in the film. Godzilla is only able to win when he receives a power up from Keizer mutant (whatever his name is) and is able to blast KG into outer skreeonking space with a supercharged heat ray.

I agree that it's not convincing as the ultimate Godzilla opponent but that's in part because Shinichi Wakasa and company made a really lousy monster costume. I'd say that it's clear that Godzilla and Monster X are supposed to be evenly matched but Keizer Ghidorah is that much stronger than Godzilla. That doesn't make much sense either but that's how they portray it for us.

It's just a shitty movie anyway.


Not only that, but you could argue that Des is stronger then Keizer G, so even that is questionable.

I just think from the evidence in the film, Keizer G is supposed to be the strongest foe Godzilla had ever fought, at least in that film.

Does that mean that Destoroyah or Gabara or Optimus Prime or whoever else could win against Keizer Ghidorah? I dunno. They're all fictional characters that defy natural laws, so the outcome is dependent on the writer.

I only replied because I didn't think "is Godzilla tired" was ever a possibility, and I tried to use examples from the film to elaborate. I think that would be writing that's even too bad for Final Wars.
