What do you imagine happened to showa goji?

Postby DannyBeane » Wed Dec 18, 2013 11:48 am

After Terror of Mechagodzilla ended with Showa goji swimming off into the sunset, what do you imagine was his final fate? We know he winds up killing KG in DAM in 1999 but then what? Does he live out his days till he drops dead? Does he go out with one last hurrah fighting some unknown evil force? Do humans, still considering him a threat, finally put an end to him? After all, they locked him up on Monster Island in the future despite the fact that he had saved not just Japan but the world countless times.

I figure the series pretty much just continued as it had, we're just not seeing the movies.

Maybe he fought and defeated a right wing coup of government militarists who tried to use their new ships and Super Robot to gain control of the government?

Maybe he fought gargantuas?

Who knows... :mrgreen:

I know what you mean. After watching Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla and Terror of Mechagodzilla back-to-back it really felt like an end of an era.

While I understand the different motivations of Godzilla, I feel like it could be explained as him coming to understand his place in the world and his duty to protect it. While a little cheezy, the transformation started in Ghidrah.

We do know that after Terror of Mechagodzilla he would later be captured by the Xliens as the events of Monster Zero take place in 198x. Then Destroy all Monsters.

I really wish one of the Millennium series reboots had taken up the torch after Terror of Mechagodzilla, though.

The movie itself (Japanese version) says 196X.

I feel like Showa Goji eventually just stayed retired on monster island, possibly assisting when largescale alien invasions happened, but mostly working on his autobiography.

Yeah i was thinking that. Although ToMG was the last film made, chronologically in the showa continuity, DAM is the last film. I'd love for Toho to do what Tsuburaya did and create new Showa suits and a new showa-era movie, but I know they never will.
There are no more good TV Shows, only ones that haven't disappointed me yet.

I would at least like IDW to do something with a Showa suit.

They can use the suits, but so far they have stuck with Heisei and Millennium. They have to get Toho approval for just about everything (such as "change Godzilla's posture in this panel")
