Godzilla’s Enemies: Part V

18. Megaguruis. This is another one of the insect type of monsters that Godzilla has fought. I apologize to Mothra but this is my very favorite insect monster that Godzilla fights against. He/or she…I think it is a queen, appears in the Millennium series Godzilla vs Megaguruis. I generally don’t care much for giant insect monsters but this one is an exception. I like the design, much like a giant dragonfly, and the battle between Godzilla and he is pretty epic and well done.
19. Moguera: Technically not a monster but a machine similar to Mechagodzilla. This machine, which looks like a metallic penguin, appears in the movie Godzilla vs Space-Godzilla. Since the prior movie in the series already featured Mechagodzilla Toho wanted a different mechanical type of thing fighting Godzilla. It is a bit silly looking but over all I am a bit ambivalent toward this creature not hating it but really not liking it too much either.
20. Mothra: Mothra is a giant Moth with wings that are very colorful. Mothra is the only monster in the Toho panoply that is female? (with the possible exception of Megaguiris) In some movies, such as Destroy All Monsters, Mothra appears in her larval form throughout the movie. In other movies Mothra appears in both her Larval and adult forms. Sometimes she appears only in her adult form. I do have mixed feelings about Mothra. Although I recognize that she is one of the more popular monsters to fight against Godzilla (or with him when he is the good guy). I am just not that crazy about insect monsters. Mothra just doesn’t seem that threatening of a monster. Mothra is often accompanied by twin fairies called the the Shobijin and I must say that the Mothra song they sing to summon her is a great song.

About billfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
