The GyakushuGoji (逆襲ゴジ?) is the Godzilla suit design used in the 1955 Godzilla film, Godzilla Raids Again.


Name

The GyakushuGoji's name comes from Godzilla Raids Again's Japanese title, specifically the word gyakushū (逆襲?), meaning counterattack, and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

Detail

Very similar to the ShodaiGoji, the GyakushuGoji was slimmer in build and had a smaller head. The lean look resulted from the need to make the suit more flexible to battle with Anguirus in the film. The GyakushuGoji also featured movable eyes. A separate set of legs, worn like boots, was used for close-ups of Godzilla's feet. Like with the ShodaiGoji, a hand-opperated puppet was used for close-ups of Godzilla's face. This puppet noticeably features teeth that protruded outward from the mouth, a feature not shared by the suit.
