Godzilla has had many different movie versions from classic to normal. So out of all the versions of Godzilla, which one is said to be the most powerful? Let’s take a look at the 7 strongest versions of Godzilla below!
1. Godzilla Heisei
Godzilla in the Heisei era is the third incarnation of Godzilla in history, it has amazing abilities and makes itself one of the strongest versions of Godzilla with a huge fan base.
Godzilla Heisei has the characteristic atomic breath ability of other Godzillas, but besides that, it also has other special powers. It was Godzilla Heisei that could shoot spiraling heat rays that could even cut off King Ghidorah’s head, absorb energy, and shoot out atomic energy while fighting Biollante.
2. Burning Godzilla (Heisei)
Burning Godzilla is actually almost the same as the Godzilla in point 1, only with a slight difference. After being hit by an Oxygen bomb, Godzilla almost lost his life. Dr. Ishiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) is forced to sacrifice himself to activate the atomic bomb to help the monster recover faster. By absorbing radioactive material from the atomic bomb, Godzilla’s weak body was strengthened. Godzilla’s body became larger with countless streaked energy veins. However, they also overload the nuclei in Godzilla’s body and turn the creature itself into a ticking time bomb. The image of Godzilla “burning” (Burning Godzilla) appeared in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995) when Uranium deposits on Earth were destroyed..
The Godzilla slow-explosion bomb, if left unchecked, could destroy the Earth, so the JSDF had to use freezing weapons to reduce the heat of Burning Godzilla. At the end of the Burning Godzilla story, it dies from being frozen by the JSDF after defeating Destoroyah so that the flaming corpse of Godzilla does not activate the Earth’s core and explode the Earth.
3. Godzilla Millennium
Many people speculate that Godzilla Millennium released in 2000 is Godzilla Junior, but the reality is completely different. This Millennium Godzilla is more antagonistic than the Heisei version and although Godzilla Millennium is one of the smaller Godzillas, it possesses great strength. It can shoot nuclear energy from its own body like the version of the Godzilla. Heisei, besides it also has high agility and stamina thanks to its not too large body.
4. Godzilla (Final Wars)
Godzilla in Final Wars is expected to enter the Millennium era, although its appearance is similar to the Heisei version, so it can also be considered a new Godzilla. In terms of unique strength this Godzilla is only average, but its durability is very high because in this movie it is alone against countless other monsters in a row. Even when exhausted, it still manages to win against Monster X and then transforms into Keizer Ghidorah again.
5. Shin Godzilla
Shin Godzilla is a very unique incarnation of Godzilla with a different appearance compared to previous Godzilla versions. Shin Godzilla has a large size of up to 118 meters with a very long tail and very rough skin, so it looks much more scary than other versions.
Shin Godzilla also possesses many scary moves, especially the ability to shoot “beams” from the mouth, dorsal fin and tail. Its stamina is also very high for having survived JSDF attacks.
6. Godzilla (Monsterverse)
Godzilla in this good Monsterverse version of Legendary Pictures is indeed very strong and has a large body compared to the previous version. In addition to Godzilla’s standard power, what is unique about the Godzilla Monsterverse version is the Burning mode, the monster can fire hot nuclear energy over a wide area. The difference with Burning Godzilla Heisei is that here Godzilla can control his power thanks to the help of Mothra.
7. Godzilla Earth
Of the Godzilla variants, Godzilla Earth is the most impressive in size. In the Godzilla 2017 anime movie series, Godzilla Earth is 300 meters tall, 550 meters long and weighs over 100,000 tons! To make it easier to imagine, Godzilla Earth is 3 times bigger than Godzilla in the Monsterverse!
Possessing a huge body, the power of Godzilla Earth is equally huge. It is unknown if this variant will appear on the big screen but if it does, we will surely see the craziest and most epic battles in history!
