The KiryuGoji (機龍ゴジ?) is the Godzilla suit design used in the 2002 and 2003 Godzilla films, Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla and Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S..


Name

In Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla, the KiryuGoji's name comes from another kaiju's name, Kiryu (機龍?, Kiryū), and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

In Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S., the TokyoGoji's name comes from the film's Japanese title, specifically Tōkyō (東京?), and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

Detail

For the film Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla, Toho decided to stray away from Shusuke Kaneko's SokogekiGoji and go back to the look of the MireGoji. This new version, dubbed KiryuGoji, did however go under some pretty obvious changes from those two previous designs. The head was completely changed and made smaller to sort of represent the head of the Heisei series Godzilla. The dorsal plates were reduced a bit and lost their purplish hue, deciding to keep the classic bone-white color, but still remained jagged like the MireGoji's dorsal plates. Godzilla's skin also returned from the MireGoji green to the old charcoal black, Godzilla's traditional color.

The KiryuGoji is among the most expressive of the Godzilla suits, and has animatronics included which allow for some facial expressions and more notably, the ability to widen or narrow the suit's eyes, giving Godzilla genuine expressions of surprise, shock or anger.

The following year for the film Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S., the sequel to Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla, Godzilla's appearance remained basically the same. A new suit named TokyoGoji (東京ゴジ?), was created with an almost identical design, only sporting a large scar on the chest region, sustained from Kiryu's Absolute Zero cannon in the previous film.
