The SokogekiGoji (総攻撃ゴジ?) is the Godzilla suit used in the 2001 Godzilla film, Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack.


Name

The SokogekiGoji's name comes from Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack's Japanese title, specifically sōkōgeki (総攻撃?), meaning all-out attack, and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

Detail

For Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, Shusuke Kaneko decided to give Godzilla a whole new look. He took both the designs of the ShodaiGoji and the Heisei series suits and combined them to keep Godzilla looking like he did in the original Godzilla film, but still somewhat modernized.

The SokogekiGoji is the second tallest suit in the entire history of Godzilla, as it was surpassed by the SnickersGoji suit from a Snickers commercial in 2014, measuring in at over seven feet tall. Significant muscle was given to this suit and the pointer and thumb claws were made longer than the other two. The pupils and irises in the eyes were removed, projecting the impression of Godzilla's now evil nature.

Godzilla's dorsal plates also shrank in size from the previous MireGoji and returned to their original look, smooth and bone-white in color. The skin of the suit also returned to its original texture and charcoal black color.

Trivia

  • This suit directly inspired the appearance of the Third Street Godzilla design which appeared in Always: Sunset on Third Street 2.
  • This suit is the only suit in the history of Godzilla's appearances to lack any irises or pupils.
  • Originally, the suit's stance was meant to lean forward, like a dinosaur or Zilla, but due to the suit's build, this made it impossible. Instead, the suit possesses a pronounced hunched posture, similar to Godzilla Junior.
  • The suit possesses a mechanism that raises and lowers the middle row of dorsal plates, though the effect is barely visible on film.
