The primary focus of the franchise, Godzilla is typically depicted as a giant prehistoric creature aroused from his ancient slumber by the advent of the nuclear age. For the early part of the Showa series of films, Godzilla is depicted as a villainous and destructive force of nature, punishing humankind for its use of nuclear weapons, which disturbed and burned him. Over the remainder of the series, Godzilla gradually developed into a heroic character, defending Japan by fending off other more malevolent creatures such as King Ghidorah, most of which were alien in nature or the pawns of invading alien races. When the franchise was rebooted in 1984 with The Return of Godzilla, Godzilla was returned to his menacing roots and again became a dreaded enemy to mankind. The subsequent films of the Heisei series saw Godzilla battle some of his foes from the Showa era, such as Mothra and Mechagodzilla, as well as new monsters like Biollante and SpaceGodzilla. The Heisei series Godzilla was generally portrayed as a neutral anti-hero neither good nor evil, which could both threaten mankind and unintentionally save it from greater evils. The Heisei series was followed by the Millennium series, an anthology consisting primarily of unconnected films each set in their own continuities, often holding only the original 1954 film canon. Godzilla was often the villain in these films, though in some he was instead an anti-hero similar to the Heisei series. 12 years after the end of the Millennium series, Toho rebooted the franchise again with Shin Godzilla, a completely standalone film in which Godzilla appears for the first time in modern-day Japan. The incarnation of Godzilla introduced in this film is a bizarre new species spawned by the dumping of nuclear waste in Tokyo Bay in the 1950's, with the capacity to spontaneously mutate its own DNA and adapt to any situation. A new incarnation of Godzilla was introduced in GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters, the first in a trilogy of anime Godzillafilms. Outside of the so far 29 official films produced by Toho, Godzilla has been featured in two Hollywood adaptations so far. The first, GODZILLA, was produced by TriStar Pictures in 1998 and became controversial for its radical reinterpretation of the character, which was now an iguana mutated by nuclear testing rather than a prehistoric reptile. The TriStar Godzilla also lacked the character's trademark abilities, such as his atomic breath and durability, and gained the ability to asexually produce its own offspring. The second Hollywood adaptation of the franchise, Godzilla, was produced in 2014 by Legendary Pictures, and featured a more traditional interpretation of the titular monster than the 1998 version. This film marked the beginning of the MonsterVerse, a franchise of giant monster films produced by Legendary and distributed by Warner Bros. featuring Godzilla and King Kong. Godzilla is slated to appear in two more films in the MonsterVerse: Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019, and Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020.

Attack Potency: At least Multi-Universe Level (Fought against Thor, Vision and the other Avengers, even when exhausted from fighting the Mega Monsters, who were mentioned numerous times to be able to fight the strongest things on Earth and still needed their power amped by 10 to begin pushing Godzilla, who compares to Hyperion. Hyperion took the destruction of two universes. Thor claimed they were fighting a futile battle, which means even the Hulk couldn’t fight him. In fact, the Hulk did fight him off-screen. The Hulk has shattered universes in the past as well as holds the power of two separate universes. Considered one of the strongest beings on Marvel 616 Earth. Killed SpaceGodzilla very consistently even in base and the SpaceGodzilla trilopod who threw both of them around when the former can light up the Godzilla universes by merely existing. And Godzilla, even in base form, was considered able to fight Hell God and Lucifer's evil, which can make their own dimensions(note that Godzilla and Spacegodzilla dying is an outlier, thus that part doesn't apply). In fact, Godzilla can fight the fusion of Lucifer and SpaceGodzilla though he is inferior in base form. Scales somewhat to his durability. Merged with space and time. Can mess with time as if it's a harp. Even at the least, God Mountain made everything and nothingness, and Godzilla killed him. Ultimate Form amps him 59.2 times. Fusion form gets him 13 energy sources, making him exponentially more powerful Spiral ray variants prove far superior to normal base Godzilla. Grew in power a fair bit post Hell even in base. Should be stronger than Desghidorah, who's universal, as he can fight and beat King Ghidorah very consistently, who's more powerful). Multiverse Level+ at peak (Thor also killed a celestial, albeit with help. Relative to God Mountain, an embodiment of God, who runs an infinite multiverse and has absolute control over it.) | At least Multiverse Level. High Multiverse Level+ at best (Shouldn’t be any weaker than his normal form, has all power in the universe, Super Godzilla's power is in a higher dimension. And it's mentioned to be indescribable compared to his base. As well as being equal to Bagan, who has the same higher dimensional power statements. Burning Godzilla grows stronger infinitely and compares to beings who embody multiple timelines, created all the universes in Monster Strike and has more energy packed in his body than the dawn of time) | At least High Multiversal+ to High Complex Multiverse level, arguably Outerverse Level (Godzilla was claimed to be able to destroy all of IDW, which holds multiple infinite multiverses, numerous higher dimensions, Heaven itself has at least 7 and views the multiverse as finite. Heaven’s dimensions transcend our own, and Godzilla exists beyond Heaven. Tōhō has confirmed them as well as possibly platonic concepts like Unicron and God Mountain. Left Heaven and transcends all of it alongside IDW, which may be at this level. God is superior to the verse and Godzilla is his equal. Views the verse as fiction. He can tap into his Divine powers whenever he wishes.)
Speed: Massively FTL+ (Flew a distance of 500 million lightyears in an instant. Dodges a thrown bridge from Hercules with ease. Hercules has kept up in combat with Thor, who can go from Asgard to Earth in a short timeframe, as well as match Silver Surfer's speed, who can travel to and from distant galaxies with ease) to Immeasurable (Came out of the reverse side of time and views time as ice). Omnipresent at best (Merged with time and space) | Massively FTL+ to Immeasurable. Omnipresent at best (Should be comparable to base form if not faster since Bagan blitzed base Godzilla and Super Godzilla is equal to Bagan) | Higher end Immeasurable to likely Irrelveant
Lifting Strength: Universal (Easily squished Hercules who lifted the universe) | Universal | Immeasurable, up to Irrelevant
Striking Strength: At least Multi-Universal. Multiverse Class+ at best | At least Multiversal. High Multiverse Class+ at best | At least High Multiversal+ to High Complex Multiversal, arguably Outerversal
Durability: At least Multi-Universe Level (Took being tossed from one universe to another. Took a dimension collapsing on him Can tank 1,000 times his attack potency Can take hits from Bagan, who can negate his Atomic Breath attacks with ease. Higher with items, energy protection and armor as well as transforming and adapting). Multiverse Level+ at best (Can take hits from monsters on his level or even stronger, and took a hit from God Mountain) | At least Multiverse Level. High Multiverse Level+ at best (scales above his power by numerous times, equal to Bagan who's also in a higher dimension of power immune to weapons that can hurt his base)| At least High Mutiversal+ to High Complex Multiverse Level, arguably Outerverse Level (Completely and utterly immortal to all things on or beneath his level, survived Hell's trials and durability should scale up from base.)
Range: Extended melee range, higher with weapons. A few kilometers to planetary with atomic breath. Universal via telepathy. Higher via reality warping and divine attacks.
Standard Equipment: Shoulder canons, hero sword and shield, hero armor, Oxygen Destroyer, booster bracelet and meat, explorer gauntlets and probability ring, hourglass, heart and thunder, orbs, items, visor, power-ups and summons, crystal surges, items, more items
Intelligence: While some incarnations of Godzilla are slightly below that of a human's, Godzilla has demonstrated enough intelligence to understand teamwork and to analyze and use the battlefield to his advantage. Has some knowledge of martial arts including judo and kickboxing, can adapt to complex fighting styles and exploit enemy weaknesses. More intelligent incarnations are capable of human activities such as speech, close-quarters and ranged combat, mastery of several weapons, and even piloting of complex mechas or other ships| Knows all things in the multiverse, outsmarted God Mountain and Lucifer who wars with God Mountain.
Weaknesses: None notable
Key: Base Godzilla and mild forms| Super Godzilla, Burning Godzilla, Keizer Godzilla | Divine Godzilla
