Godzilla Neo - LEGENDARY GODZILLA by KaijuSamurai Godzilla Neo - LEGENDARY GODZILLA by KaijuSamurai


Height: 100 meters

Mass: 90,000 metric tons

TYPE 2 - Warrior Class (possible God Class status, requires more study)


In the wake of the early 20th century’s reintroduction to the concept that man is not the sole master of Earth, a secret organization, code-named MONARCH, was founded under President Truman. At first, the clandestine group was small and modestly funded, but on the day GODZILLA I was reported to United World News by Steve Martin in 1954, an emergency meeting was held between the President’s advisors and MONARCH, with the intent of bolstering resources and personnel in order to keep pace with the new forms of life crawling out of the woodwork, and if possible, remain one step ahead. It’s not exactly clear why MONARCH never officially collaborated with the JSDF or the UNGCC, outside of standard intelligence briefings and friendly expressions of international support. To the Japanese, MONARCH felt like a smaller, obligatory cousin that represented little more than a manifestation of the paranoia possessed by the world’s strongest nation that it might suffer the same monster-infested fate as its eastern ally. Little did they know that The American-based organization was on to something BIG...

In 2014, MONARCH, while struggling to maintain anonymity, also struggled to help the US military contain an outbreak of MUTO’s - Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms (MONARCH’s internal terminology for kaiju), specifically the SHINOMURA species (named by Ishirō Serizawa), as the respective male and female counterparts were set on a collision course for the West Coast.

At the same time, the UNGCC recorded mass movements in the Pacific. Kaiju were practically fleeing from...SOMETHING.

A tectonic disturbance was detected in the deepest part of the Pacific, and a massive Shape was seen moving towards Honolulu. Attempts to warn the US military proved tricky thanks to the Shinomura’s EMP ability, but the Navy detected it soon enough...not that they could have done anything to stop it.

A massive, terrible shape rose from the sea and nearly annihilated Honolulu in the process. A gigantic creature, one of the largest kaiju on record, and awoken by the reemergence of its ancient enemies in the modern world.


The monster’s resemblance to the Gojirasaurus family was astonishing. Scientists scrambled to classify the creature, and near as anyone could figure, it is widely regarded as some sort of ancestral super species to the known Gojirasaurus family. This theory is further supported by MONARCH’s own records of cave murals and ancient people’s depictions of Godzilla-like petroglyphs found in dig sites around the world (though MONARCH kept this information largely to itself, under the guise of “need to know” used to justify decades of information hoarding).

These ancient recordings of Godzilla-like creatures, created far before the “birth” of Godzilla I in 1954, suggests that this monster has existed in its current state for millennia, largely unchanged since time began.

His ancient, battle-scarred body, as well as the old world’s records of the creature locked in combat with other monsters, leads scientists to believe that the LEGENDARY GODZILLA arises every few millennia to fight enemies old and new. The Shinomura, being an instinctual foe from the monster’s era (which possibly dates back to BEFORE the dinosaurs), brought the legendary beast back out of hibernation.

It is not known as of this writing how the current Godzilla will react to his ancient ancestor reappearing in the world. One thing is for sure - it could be the war of monsters to end all monster wars.


  • Incredibly huge and armored body makes him nearly impervious to physical damage
  • Atomic breath
  • Old and slow body
  • Possible healing factor...most abilities still unknown

UP NEXT: Shinomura

You can keep your Super-Godzilla and Burning-Godzilla, this is the ultimate form of the legend. ...oh and you can kill that sludge imposter with fire for all I care.

Who is the sludge imposter? Hedorah? Or Kamata Kun?

Quite possibly.

Funny fact, in the League Of Extrodinary Gentlemen universe, all fiction share the same universe. So, I personally see the Godzilla Neo timeline easily fitting in with the Leagues timeline.

Oh man, I love this one! First off, it's so awesome that you're doing Godzilla Neo again; that project was actually why I made an account on DA: I wanted to make absolutely sure I saw every single entry as close to when they were published as possible. Second, I love this entry so much. Your art, which was always awesome, has improved to become just utterly gorgeous. And that certainly helps you capture the essence of the Legendary Godzilla while still taking the design in a new and interesting direction to make it your own. I also think that the way you have him integrated into the story and worldbuilding/lore of Neo works very well and is pretty clever.

Overall: fantastic; it made me go and watch the film again. I cannot wait for future entries into this series, and I want to thank you for deciding to go back to it and give us more of this beloved project!

It's like Classic-Goji and Anguirus had a baby and it took after Goji.

As soon as I saw this horrific design I was like, "why the fuck does Godzilla look like it has type II diabetes"?

I wish they had went with one of the other model designs (one of them looked particularly fearsome but I can't seem to find it anywhere).

Anyways, this design was idiotic. You don't make Godzilla obese and give him a pug-like snout for the love of god! Ugh.
AbsolutSin Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2018  Student Digital Artist
i mean they did so your comment about "you can't" didn't stop anyone ever.

U mad bro? LOL.
LordGojira Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Great design, love how you made him digitigrade but too fat, and i honestly would've merged the two Godzillas like: Making LEGENDARY's background of being an ancient life-form that feeds on radiation the lifestyle of normal Godzillasaurus and that they were amphibious so that Godzilla is also a batrachian.
Beto1207 Featured By Owner May 28, 2018
I like his appearance, although I prefer to think that it is Godzilla himself.

Now, we just need Shin Godzilla: I like to think that Goro Maki inserted G cells into an irradiated mutant fish to create it.
Rokudon Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2018
I personally think Goro Maki fused with Shin Godzilla as an infant and maintained control until the first incident where Shin Godzilla experienced pain. However he regained control up until the US dropped the bombs on him. Then he lost all control permanently until the ending scene with the tail. I believe that was Goro Maki trying to escape his mutant prison.
Beto1207 Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2018
Yes, I forgot to mention the part where Goro Maki sacrifices himself to merge with Shin.
As for the creatures at the end, it could be only the children of ShinG with Goro Maki DNA (in addition to Shin had already used part of his DNA to acquire his upright posture and his anthropoid hands).
By the way I like your idea that Goro had the control over Godzilla until the bombing.
Here is a Link of a very interesting crossover from G14 vs ShinG, but the problem is that it is in Spanish;…
Rokudon Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2018
I do alot of thinking when it comes to the movies I like, it makes sense in a way since Godzilla hadn't actively done anything as violent as he did after being bombed. It's almost like Goro Maki was strutting him around saying "This is the result of humanities disregard for nature." I hope to one day see a Shin Godzilla 2 or even a movie showing what happened to the G-men.
Beto1207 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2018
Yeah! =D me too.

This is superb artwork! Keep it up!!!

I love Legendary Pictures (both movie and Godzilla: Awakening) American Godzilla!  I consider this species of Gojira to be the most powerful of all.
Armageist Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2018
Wait, is this supposed to be from the 2014 movie?  Or is it separate from even that one?  I'm confused.
ProudZillaFan Featured By Owner May 1, 2018
It is the one from the 2014 movie, but in the style of KaijuSamurai's Godzilla Neo series. Are you familiar with Godzilla Neo?
Armageist Featured By Owner May 1, 2018
No I'm not.  So it's a 2014 inclusion into his comic line.  Interesting.
ProudZillaFan Featured By Owner May 2, 2018
There is a gallery folder in his profile with all of his Godzilla Neo designs. Basically, it is a series that is somewhat similar to the Ultimate universe of Marvel Comics. It's goal is to create a somewhat cohesive universe with nearly every character in the Godzilla franchise, or Toho franchise. Every picture has a description with a bio of the redesign. The series began in the year 2007, so you've got a lot of things to see.
Armageist Featured By Owner May 6, 2018
And read! I think I've fainted.

Its hiding in the dark
Its teeth are razor sharp
I must confess that I feel like a monster
Its hiding deep within
Its just beneath my skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become
The nightmare has just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

You forgot to mention his gills as a weak spot. Also, great to see neo back, I love this series, and this is definitely a stand out design.
