Origins

Mechagodzilla originated from a four year span of construction by Bilusaludo engineers, prior to the events of Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters. It was constructed with the intention of destroying Godzilla. The construction of the titan was a joint effort undertaken by both humanity and the Bilusaludo species.

History

Godzilla: Monster Apocalypse

Mechagodzilla's name itself was kept confidential.

Humanity secretly built Mechagodzilla with aid from the extraterrestrial Bilusaludos, with development incorporating nanometal technology in its design. However, despite spending 4 years in development, it didn't activate properly due to unknown causes and was abandoned in 2046. In March of the same year, humanity "lost" it in the final battle against Godzilla in Hamamatsu, Japan, during the "Operation: Great Wall", resulting in a devastating loss with casualties rising to nearly 100 million.

The loss of Mechagodzilla was said to be a final blow to the Global Union, and was the event that pushed humanity and aliens alike to abandon the Earth.
