Godzilla Neo - ZILLA by KaijuSamurai Godzilla Neo - ZILLA by KaijuSamurai
Reptile Monster
ZILLA

HEIGHT: 50 meters
MASS: 15,000 metric tons

BIO:
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...

ABILITIES/ASPECTS:
- 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

The only real change I can put my finger on here is that it's a bit more dynamic than the canon design. Her features are... pushed out, I guess, for a feeling of constant motion. It works well for a "scrappy, nimble little sister" feel.

And that's the truth. I like the series because they tried to make Zilla much more like Godzilla.

One of My favorite show that was in the late 90's

Unfortunately, Nostalgia Critic hated this show, and maybe it's because He hates anything Roland Emmerich.

About Zilla, I refuse to believe that he survived being shot by torpedoes, and that he can reproduce asexually while still claiming to be male. So here's what I've come up with. The submarines did kill Zilla, but before that happened, he and another Zilla, a female, mated and the mother stayed to guard the nest, i'll be it lazily, while the male went off to find food. Now you might be asking, "How could there be two of them?", well considering that they are in a movie where they can walk through New York City and just suddenly disappear, are you really gonna be surprised by the idea that there're two of these things? If you still don't believe me, then feel free to go back to following the words of an obnoxious scientist who used human pregnancy tests to on a lizard.

Zilla dos not make any sense officially Zilla is considered an "asexual male," which doesn't make sense. i remember reading multiple times that Dean Devlin said Zilla was a male that had the ability to reproduce asexually. Toho says the same thing as well, since they maintain that all incarnations of Godzilla are male, and Zilla was created as an incarnation of Godzilla. Zilla must at the very least have female reproductive characteristics, but officially he is a male monster.Only POSSIBLE explanation [theory]: Zilla WAS a male, but since there were no females, he changed gender and then layed the eggs [asexually, on top of it all] and then changed back to a boy just so he can be called 'KING.' The only bad thing about it is that Zilla's offspring were all sterile, meaning that that is a terrible thing to do (and makes no sense because if it reproduced asexually, it would mean its children would be exact clones, and therefore WOULD be able to reproduce like Zilla) and a terrible evolutionary thing, but I guess evolution would have nothing to do with that since the Zilla species was just a few iguanas that instead of dying from cancer grew to 60 meters tall in a couple of decades.


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 :)

Technically Zilla could've reproduced asexually the only catch was that Zilla would've had to be a female

But if we're thinking realistically, how did Zilla come back after being shot by those torpedoes. If the movie took itself seriously, they would've had there be two Zillas. But clearly they didn't care and just expected us to believe that this frail looking monster survived being shot by torpedoes, and not missiles, which can reproduce asexually and still be male only because the scientist told us, and not because he actually looked into it.

We don't know were the torpedoes hit so for all we know the torpedoes could've hit the back which (judging from certain promotional images) seems to have a thicker skin

Yeah the topedoes didn't hit her, they just hit the dirt she was trying to burrow in, creating a rock slide which she survived by burrowing.

Come on! You know that Zilla is a weakling. If he really had a thick layer of scales and the ability to heal quickly, he wouldn't run away from the military's attacks. The torpedoes did hit him, and we say his corpse sinking into the river.

Well that's fine. But if you are trying to make his movie more believable, wouldn't you agree with my idea of there being two of them, and they mated in order to build a nest, instead of the idea of asexual reproduction and still claiming to be male?

She can't spit radiation charged fire. She just roars so strong that it creates explosions. In the movie they made the illusion that she was spitting fire from the angle they shot it at.

The 98 film as simply a monster movie isn't all that bad. But Godzilla it is not. The toys ad cartoon that that film spawned however are another story. Those were freaking awesome back in the day. Though oddly enough I feel as if Zilla was a remake of  The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms. Mainly because they do have slightly similar basic designs. And the fact you see very obvious tributes to Ray Harryhausen through out the movie.

I just recently remembered that Alan Tudyk was the voice of Green Arrow in Injustice: Gods Among Us and so yeah I can see him as the voice of Zilla, being all sarcastic and cynical but in that way you just love him for it as opposed to Godzilla's tough leadership style. Oh it would be great.
