In the bleary summer of 1998, thunderous footsteps shook the streets of New York City, and a shrieking roar shattered windows. Buildings were smashed, landmarks pulverized, fish trucks....eaten?
Headlines blared "GODZILLA TAKES A BITE OUT OF THE BIG APPLE!," "KING OF THE MONSTERS IN NYC!," and vendors lined the streets selling shirts declaring "Godzilla Was Here!" and photographs were taken in the massive footprints left in the monster's wake.
Of course, within days, it was all too obvious that Godzilla had NOT attacked New York, had NOT dug tunnels throughout the city, laid 100 eggs in Madison Square Garden, or died from 6 Tomahawk missles on the Brooklyn Bridge. It was instead a beast later known as "Zilla," or "Godzilla In Name Only" by the Kaiju Zoological and Enthusiast community, had chosen the metropolis as a place to lay its eggs and find food (WHY is subject to question). Despite the fact that the King of the Monsters had NOT died at the hands of the US Airforce, they sure liked to believe he did, and the announcements to the contrary were severely downplayed in the media.
Regardless, Biologist Nick Tatopolous knew that there was a very, VERY good chance that not all of the creature's eggs were destroyed in the blast that obliterated the nest. Leading a small search party, Nick discovered a lone egg. Hatching and imprinting on the scientist, "Zilla Jr," as it came to be nicknamed, began to follow Nick with incredible loyalty and intelligence, proving itself to be not only an efficient and agile fighter, but a benevolent kaiju at that.
The real question remained, however, as to where the original came from. That answer came in the form of Phillip Roche, and his protege', Monique Dupre. Part of a French Special Forces sector, the two were charged by their superiors to "clean up a mess" left from a series of experiments conducted in French Polynesia, were 5 "G-Cell Mutations" had escaped after a catastrophic accident (it is believed that S.C.A.L.E., a pro-kaiju rights organization/eco terrorist cell, was involved in these events). Nick Tatopolous, forming the H.E.A.T. team, hunted down all the remaining mutations, with Zilla's help, of course.
After a particularly traumatic event in Alaska, Zilla was later taken to Monster Island, where he would spend the remainder of his life...MOST of it, anyway...
- Can run at 200 MPH
- Burrowing ability rivals Baragon's
- Can spit radiation-charged fire
- Very light healing factor
- Razor-whip tail
- Agility makes up for lack of resistance to heavy weapon fire

Unfortunately, Nostalgia Critic hated this show, and maybe it's because He hates anything Roland Emmerich.
The way I see it Theory 2 :, Zilla was born male, but no mates existed at all. So, due to his heavily-irradiated and rapidly-evolving genes, he spontaneously developed female reproductive characteristics (since Patrick Tatapoulos confirmed Zilla has female genitalia) and fertilized his eggs with his already existing male sexual characteristics.
Zilla I assume is like the evolution of an entire species over millions of years in one individual. Zilla produced hundreds of eggs so that there would be a breeding population of Zillas, consisting of both male and female members. Because Zilla evolves and his genes mutate so rapidly, his children were not all clones of him, but genetically different creatures due to rapid embryonic mutation or some other scientifically-impossible process. Since Zilla's offspring would be expected to breed with each other (incestuous, I know, but not rare in nature), Zilla Junior was simply a male member of the species. Since all of his siblings were killed, Zilla Junior had no females to mate with and was sterile.
See, this is what it all boils down to: "Zilla is realistic"
also a creature that size could not exist in any way if its only eating fish
(and if it does not have bones out of titanium it would crush under his own weigth -> Square Cube Law <-
also the proportions of zilla are wrong no Lizard would look like a DINOSAUR!!!!! it also could not jump or climb buildings. Zilla also has the head of a LEGUAN on the bod of a THEROPOD is so wrong and can not exist in nature.
well thats the explenation
although it looked like the American movie made him look like he abbs for some reason O.o I dunno if anyone else saw that.
Awesome job! <3 even though this was like, a long time ago
