The KingGoji (キンゴジ?, Kingoji) is the Godzilla suit design used in the 1962 Godzilla film, King Kong vs. Godzilla.


Name

The KingGoji's name comes from another kaiju's name in the film it appeared in, King Kong (キングコング?, Kingu Kongu), and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

Detail

One of the most popular Godzilla designs, the KingGoji was radically different from any Godzilla suits before or since. The suit was more reptilian in appearance and the build was very stocky, especially in the lower half. The head was small and streamlined, with a combination of human-like eyes placed on the sides of the head in a reptilian manner.

Other distinctive features for the KingGoji included large hands with spike-like claws and thumbs nearly as large as the three other fingers. The KingGoji also had several features that would be common to all Godzilla suits until 1984's 84Goji. These were a lack of ears, no fangs, three toes, smooth underside for the tail, and one main row of dorsal plates flanked by two small rows.

The suit can also seen in a deleted shot from Mothra vs. Godzilla where one can see the suit in the Mothra larva webbing when he falls off the cliff.
