For information on the character that bears this design, see Godzilla (Legendary).

The LegendaryGoji (レジェンダリーゴジ,   RejendarīGoji?) is the Godzilla design used in the 2014 Godzilla film, Godzilla.


The LegendaryGoji's name comes from Legendary Pictures, and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

The nickname, AmeriGoji, comes from the fact that the design appeared in an American film, and again Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).


For Godzilla's return, it was decided to give Godzilla a whole new look. The King of the Monsters was revamped and given a new design that didn't look radically different from the established Godzilla designs like the TriStar Godzilla design from the 1998 film did. But like the one from the 1998 film, it was intended to look more realistic. The LegendaryGoji design is completely computer generated, just like the ThirdStreetGoji. The LegendaryGoji's face is shaped very squarely, its neck is broad and appears to have shark-like gills. Its eyes are a yellow color, and its teeth are small and not nearly as straightly lined up as the previous Godzilla designs.

The LegendaryGoji's nostrils are more separate than previous designs, with them being in opposite sides of the snout, making it more reptile-like instead of the more mammalian fashion of being close together in front of it. The design's head and neck seem to lean forward more so than any previous design. Its dorsal fins are smaller than the previous designs, but they still retain the core maple-leaf shape, although straighter and very sharp, somewhat like the MireGoji's creating a more jagged look when rising from the water.

The LegendaryGoji's claws are black color, and its feet are wider and resemble an elephant's foot with larger claws more than the other Godzilla designs do. Its skin is more reptile-like, crocodile-like and rougher than the other designs, and is a blackish color. Its body and tail are very wide as well, making it look somewhat bulkier than other Godzilla designs.

Legendary has confirmed that their Godzilla's body is 550 feet and 4 inches long, his height is 355 feet, there are exactly 89 dorsal spines running down his back, the palm of his hands are 34 feet and 4 inches each, and that his roar can be heard from 3 miles away, loud enough to make an opponent go deaf.[1]

  • Jim Rygiel has said that the LegendaryGoji's fighting style was based on those of bears and komodo dragons. Bears and Komodo dragons stand up tall and barge their opponents backwards with their arms. In the film, Godzilla is seen doing this as well.[2]
  • According to Andrew Baker, a designer at WETA Workshop, the LegendaryGoji's face was designed with the features of eagles and other birds of prey in order to make Godzilla look noble and majestic, yet not too cute or threatening.[3]
  • Andy Serkis, who performed motion capture for King Kong in Peter Jackson's 2005 remake, was consulted to make the LegendaryGoji and the M.U.T.O.s' computer-generated movement more realistic.[4]
    • T.J. Storm did at least partial motion capture for Godzilla in the 2014 film.[5]
  • This is the first Godzilla design to feature gills.
  • This is the most accurate and most biologically realistic depiction of Godzilla that's been seen thus far.
