The MegaroGoji (メガロゴジ?) is the Godzilla suit design used in the 1973, 1974, and 1975 Godzilla films, Godzilla vs. Megalon, Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla and Terror of MechaGodzilla, as well as the 1973 Toho television series, Zone Fighter.


Name

In Godzilla vs. Megalon, the MegaroGoji's name comes from another kaiju's name, Megalon (メガロ?, Megaro), and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

In Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla, the MekaGoji's name comes from another kaiju's name, MechaGodzilla (メカゴジラ?, Mekagojira), and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

In Terror of MechaGodzilla, the MekaGyakushuGoji's name comes from the film's Japanese title, specifically Mekagojira and gyakushū (メカゴジラ and 逆襲 ?), meaning MechaGodzilla and counterattack, respectively, and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

Detail

The MegaroGoji had a plain, streamlined body, a short neck and silver, puffy, pillow-like designed dorsal spines. The face looks more friendlier than usual, with a rounded muzzle, oversized brows and huge eyes. The eyes of the MegaroGoji were movable and had movable eyelids.

In Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla, the MegaroGoji suit was the same but with some changes to the face; more detail in the muzzle and the brows were reduced, making this Godzilla suit look less playful than in the previous movie, Godzilla vs. Megalon. The eyes did not move, nor have movable eyelids. This suit is also called the MekaGoji (メカゴジ?). A second suit was made for MechaGodzilla's disguise.

In Terror of MechaGodzilla, the MegaroGoji received a further face lift; the muzzle was reduced and given more detail, the height of the brows are lowered and the eyes were reduced, thus giving the face a semi-comical and semi-mean look. The eyes did not move nor have movable lids, and the rest of the body is unchanged. This suit is also called the MekaGyakushuGoji (メカ逆襲ゴジ?).
