For Godzilla's return, 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. 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 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 plates 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.
The LegendaryGoji's claws are black color, and its feet are wider and resemble an elephant's foot 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 tail is 550 feet and 4 inches long, his height is 355 feet, there are exactly 89 dorsal plates running down his back, the palm of his hands are 34 feet and 4 inches each, and that his roar can be heard from three miles away.
