In promotional material, its eyes are red by default, and its dorsal plates are almost crystal-like in appearance, featuring a mix of broad and spiked spine pieces.
The method of this Mechagodzilla's portrayal is unknown, however, it will most likely be portrayed by CGI.
This Mechagodzilla's roars are currently undefined.
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.
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.
Mechagodzilla appeared in the film's prologue, where its Bilusaludo caretakers were debating on attempting to power up the titan. Shortly after, a blast of Godzilla's atomic breath forces them to flee, and the creation's abandoned.
In the film's Japanese theatrical release, a second post credits sequence containing a teaser poster for the film's sequel with Mechagodzilla on it was revealed. This would be the poster that would be used in the second chapter's advertisements. This post credits sequence would not be seen in the film's North American Netflix release.
Mechagodzilla and Godzilla Earth will meet in the sequel to Planet of the Monsters.
This Mechagodzilla's abilities are undefined.
