Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla 2 (ゴジラVSメカゴジラ,   Gojira buiesu Mekagojira?, lit. Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla) is a manga adaptation published by Shogakukan of the 1993 film Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla 2.


Plot

The manga follows the plot of its film counterpart reasonably closely, but deviates at several points, mainly in regards to how fights play out:

First off, the manga is extremely violent unlike the film, with Godzilla suffering from near-torture against MechaGodzilla during the first fight, including having his eyes ruptured and his dorsal fins torn in half. MechaGodzilla is also given a variety of new abilities, including a powerful move in which he fires his arms at Godzilla after the G-Crusher fails.

In the final battle, Mecha-King Ghidorah's programming takes over MechaGodzilla and it attempts to brutally kill Godzilla, despite G-Force wanting to capture Godzilla alive. After Godzilla is revived by Fire Rodan, MechaGodzilla attempts to attach itself to Godzilla and self-destruct.

Trivia

  • MechaGodzilla has many differences from its film counterpart in this manga; It has a long, sharp spike erupting out of its forehead. It also lacks a plasma grenade. In addition, the Garuda lacks its masers, instead opting for two traditional cannons, and can release a hail of grappling cables that are similar to MechaGodzilla's shock anchors.
  • This manga shares some similarities with a very early draft of Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla 2 where MechaGodzilla overrides its programming and turns against its human masters. In this early script, this was due to a computer virus, while in the manga it is due to Mecha-King Ghidorah's programming taking control of MechaGodzilla. This plot device was also loosely used for Kiryu in the 2002 film Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla.
