    My name is Robert Allen Rusk and I am a hardcore gamer with about 40+ years
    of gaming experience. I am an ex-gametester (Broderbund Software, LucasArts
    Games, Point Of View Computing) and an ex-arcade attendant (Namco
    Cyberstation - Pier 39, San Francisco, CA). I also own multiple systems such
    as the Sega Dreamcast, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Atari Jaguar, PlayStation
    (1, 2, 3, and 4), Xbox, and Xbox 360.
    
    I started writing guides in 2003 because I felt it was something I could do
    utilizing my writing skills gained in college and gametesting along with my
    passion for vidgames. Over time I have honed my overall writing and
    organization skills plus my creative thinking skills. Additionally, I have
    extended the play value of the games I have written guides and FAQs for many
    times over plus I have received many letters from all over the world.
    
    I am also a member of the following forums:
    
      >>GameFAQs
      >>GamesX
      >>AtariAge
      >>Digital Press
      >>GTA Forums
      >>The MoFaT (a members only message board set up by Grand Theft Auto: Vice
                   City players who met on the Vice City message boards at 
                   GameFAQs).
    
    Outside of gaming, my interests include Godzilla (I have been a G-Fan since
    the age of ten) and Red Dwarf. I am also a long time soundtrack collector
    with many titles in my possession. As far as favorite sports teams go, my
    teams are the San Antonio Spurs (NBA) [the local team], the Denver Broncos
    (NFL) [although I live in Texas, I am originally from Colorado Springs,
    Colorado] and the Air Force Falcons (NCAA Football).
    
    This guide was constructed using TextWrangler on an Apple Mac Mini. I view my
    work in Safari to help in seeing how it would look on the web and correct
    format errors.

    Welcome to my Godzilla guide! If this is the first time you have visited then
    you will find a lot of useful information in a highly organized format.
    Quotes taken from readers' e-mail are presented "as is" and may include
    spelling and grammatical errors.
    
    The main emphasis of this guide is to help you get the most out of each mode
    and acquire all of the Trophies. This guide also serves as a brief
    introduction to the Godzilla experience.
    
    I have worked hard to make sure that this guide is as complete as possible 
    but at the same time leave room for exploration. I hope that you enjoy this
    guide as much as learn from it.

          This GameFAQs user was instrumental in translating most of the menus 
          when the PS3 Japanese version was first released and posted them to 
          GFAQs. His help was very beneficial in the first PS3 version of this 
          guide.

    As a huge G-Fan I looked forward to this game. It certainly was better
    looking than previous G-Games and it also appeared to be loads better than
    the game it derives its inspiration from, Godzilla Generations (Sega
    DreamCast).
    
    After playing around with the Import PS3 version (and writing a guide for it)
    I acquired a PS4 because of the upcoming release of Godzilla for that
    platform. In addition to the NTSC version I also got the Import version
    (called Godzilla VS).
    
    Even though the PS4 is vastly different than the PS3 one (more on that in the
    next chapter) I used my PS3 version guide as a template for this guide.
    
    For this guide I also added a special extra section near the end that covers
    the films and some of the games that Godzilla has appeared in.
    
    Throughout this guide you may find me using the term Kaiju (Japanese for
    "monster") and G (which is shorthand for Godzilla and is often referred to
    this way in some of the movies). I also sometimes shorthand the names of
    various Kaiju on occasion.
    
    As for the game itself, it is pretty decent but it appears to be aimed at
    long time G-Fans more than a general audience. There's plenty to like if
    you're a fan but less so if you're not. It's not a hard game (despite the
    difficulty adjustment) and you should be able to get most of the Trophies
    without too much trouble (the more problematic ones would be the online
    Trophies).
    
    Although most of the Kaiju omitted from the PS3 version are in the PS4
    version there are still some omissions, mainly Megalon and MOGUERA. But there
    is still a very large number of Kaiju to play with and against.

    If you played the PS3 version and bought this game thinking that it will be
    just as easy, think again. There are multiple differences between the two
    platform versions:
    
    0===========================================================================0
    | In the PS3 version you can only play as Godzilla. In the PS4 version you  |
    | can play as any Kaiju in God of Destruction and King of Kaiju Modes.      |
    |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | There are many more Kaiju in the PS4 version which includes: Battra,      |
    | SpaceGodzilla, Anguirus, Mecha-King Ghidorah, Rodan, and the first        |
    | MechaGodzilla.                                                            |
    |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | The game is harder plus you have a Roar move that serves as a form of     |
    | block and makes certain moves more powerful.                              |
    |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | The controls have been switched up and additional attacks added.          |
    |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | There are new Bases and many of the Bases used in the PS3 version are     |
    | made larger and with more buildings and objects to destroy.               |
    |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | There is also a multiplayer mode that can allow you to do two and three   |
    | player battles.                                                           |
    0===========================================================================0
    
    There are many more differences too but these major ones are the reason that
    I can't combine the PS3 and PS4 versions into a single guide - they are way
    too different from each other.

    There are no major gameplay differences between the Japanese and American
    versions of this game. The only major difference is the language and text now
    being English. There are also some changes to the menu, terms, and Kaiju:

    The menu navigation button, which was the Circle button on the Japanese
    version, is the X Button on the American version.
    
    In the vast majority of PS4 games and in the PS4 dashboard menus you use the
    X Button to make a selection when navigating console and game menus. However,
    the Japanese version uses the Circle Button to make menu selections and the X
    Button to back out of them. I found this to be pretty annoying because I end
    up accidentally  backing out of things instead of initiating them. Thankfully
    they were switched when released Stateside.
    
      >>Shared Rankings and Trophies
        ****************************
          One interesting thing about the two versions: they share both Rankings 
          and Trophy lists. This means that if you play the American version 
          whatever score you get in God of Destruction and King of Kaiju Modes 
          can be seen and improved upon in the Japanese version.
    
          Whatever Trophy you get in the American version you also get in the 
          Japanese version. If you get Platinum in one version then you 
          technically get Platinum in the other version as well.

    In 1954 a large creature, named Gojira, landed in Japan and caused
    considerable damage before disappearing. However, its appearance led to the
    discovery of a special energy source dubbed G-Energy which was named after
    the creature. This led to the construction of many Generators that housed
    this special energy for the benefit of Japan.
    
    For decades Japan used this energy to build themselves into a global power.
    Unfortunately, the multiple Generators has attracted Gojira back from the sea
    and it has begun to attack the constructs looking to absorb the G-Energy
    within.
    
    To make matters worse its reappearance has also brought forth multiple other
    Kaiju to challenge it. In addition, a specialized military division, called
    G-Force, has been mobilized to deal with the worsening situation.

    Your Main Screen is where all of the action in Godzilla takes place.
    
    In the center of your screen is your chosen Kaiju. You use your Left Analog
    Stick (or D-Pad) to move it around and the Right Analog Stick to rotate and
    manipulate the camera.
    
    In the lower left corner of the Main Screen is the Radar and Temperature
    Gauge. In the lower center is your current height (in Meters), the Disaster
    Level, and Destruction Rate.
    
    If you're playing as Godzilla then you should see the Camera Icon and Data
    Points at the lower right corner of the screen. This does not apply to the
    other Kaiju.
    
    In the upper right corner of the screen is where you will see notifications
    from the G-Force Operator and conversations between her and the current Prime
    Minister.

    When you start up the game for the first time, and before you can get to the
    Main Menu, you'll be forced to go through the Tutorial Mode where you'll go
    through the basic moves of Godzilla. After completion of the Tutorial then
    you'll be allowed to go to the Main Menu and earn {The Scars of Disaster}
    Trophy.
    
    Although you can skip out of the Tutorial by pausing and going back to the
    Main Menu it is recommended that you finish the Tutorial as the game will
    give you no choice but to go through it before you can do your first
    run-through anyway.

    of God of Destruction Mode before the others can be selected:
    
    0===========================================================================0
    | God of Destruction | This is the main mode of the game and I'll cover     |
    | Mode               | that in detail later.                                |
    |--------------------+------------------------------------------------------|
    | King of Kaiju Mode | This is another mode where you'll face off against   |

    | Settings           | This is where you can tweak various settings of the  |
    |                    | game.                                                |

    Under Settings there are many options that you can change (from top):
    
    0===========================================================================0
    | Language Select   | This allows you to select what the text and voice     |
    |                   | language should be. There are multiple text languages |
    |                   | and Japanese and English voiceovers to choose from.   |
    |                   | This only applies to the American version of the      |
    |                   | game.                                                 |

    | Cinema Mode       | This is activated by DLC or by completely upgrading   |
    |                   | all Kaiju through Evolution Mode. It allows you to    |
    |                   | play the game through special filters that make it    |
    |                   | look like the old 1960's G-films.                     |

    In this chapter I go over the basic moves that apply to all Kaiju:
    
    0===========================================================================0
    | Roaring         | One of the more important moves within the game is      |
    |                 | Roaring. To do a Roar you press both L1 and R1          |
    |                 | together. This will cause your Kaiju to roar. But there |
    |                 | is more to just standing there and roaring. It is a     |
    |                 | major tactical move.                                    |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | When you Roar you will be mostly invulnerable. During   |
    |                 | the animation you are invulnerable to minor attacks and |
    |                 | major attacks do very little damage. In addition,       |
    |                 | Roaring can make certain moves more powerful.           |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | For example, when playing as Godzilla, when you use     |
    |                 | your Breath it is active for a certain period of time   |
    |                 | and does a certain amount of damage. But if you use     |
    |                 | your Breath after Roaring first then its range will be  |
    |                 | increased, its duration will be longer, and it will do  |
    |                 | more damage.                                            |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | However, the downside to Roaring is that it will give   |
    |                 | your enemy time to either dodge your incoming attack,   |
    |                 | attack you to interrupt yours, or do its own Roar to    |
    |                 | negate your attack.                                     |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Normal Attack   | This attack is the regular up-close melee attack and is |
    |                 | used by the Square Button. With most Kaiju there are    |
    |                 | additional attacks activated when the button is pressed |
    |                 | rapidly. These attacks can be used as a combo and up to |
    |                 | three times (depending on Kaiju).                       |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Strong Attack   | This attack is a slower but stronger attack and is used |
    |                 | by the Triangle Button. Some Kaiju have more than one   |
    |                 | type of Strong Attack. Most Strong Attacks can be added |
    |                 | to the end of a three-hit Normal Attack combo creating  |
    |                 | a powerful four-hit combo. Some Strong Attacks can be   |
    |                 | made more powerful by Roaring first.                    |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Unique Movement | This is a special type of movement that is activated by |
    |                 | the X Button. It can either be running, jumping,        |
    |                 | ramming, or flying.                                     |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Breath          | When you press the Circle Button then you'll initiate a |
    |                 | long range energy attack. It can be breath based, beam  |
    |                 | based, or missile based. These attacks are used to      |
    |                 | inflict massive damage on buildings and enemies from a  |
    |                 | distance. It can also lock-on to nearby Helicopters so  |
    |                 | you can shoot them down.                                |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | In most cases you can improve its power and range by    |
    |                 | Roaring prior to using the Breath attack.               |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | Your Breath is tied into the Temperature Gauge which    |
    |                 | sits above the Radar. When a segment is filled up then  |
    |                 | you can use your Breath. Afterwards you have to wait    |
    |                 | for the Gauge to recharge before you can use it again.  |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | You can speed up your recharge ability by upgrading the |
    |                 | Gauge through Evolution Mode. I'll go over that later   |
    |                 | in the guide.                                           |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | D-Pad Usage     | Some of the moves used by Kaiju involves using a        |
    |                 | direction along with a button press. For example, the   |
    |                 | G-Crusher used by Super MechaGodzilla involves pressing |
    |                 | Up along with the Triangle Button.                      |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | Although you can use the Left Analog Stick it is highly |
    |                 | recommended to used the D-Pad when initiating           |
    |                 | directional attacks as it is more reliable and          |
    |                 | consistent.                                             |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Emergency Dodge | When you press the R2 Button then you will initiate a   |
    |                 | special move that will allow you to quickly evade       |
    |                 | attacks. Most of these Dodges can also inflict great    |
    |                 | damage on enemies when used. When activated near        |
    |                 | buildings and vehicles then you'll completely destroy   |
    |                 | them.                                                   |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | One important thing to note about this power: when you  |
    |                 | use it you will be invulnerable to attack from the      |
    |                 | moment you begin the animation. This makes this move    |
    |                 | even more powerful as your enemy cannot stop you from   |
    |                 | using it once you start it.                             |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | Just like with your Breath this power is tied to your   |
    |                 | Temperature Gauge so you have to wait for it to charge  |
    |                 | up before you can use it. What Gauge upgrades you have  |
    |                 | will determine how often you can use your Dodge move.   |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Temperature     | Some other notes about the Gauge. Although it will      |
    | Gauge           | charge up on its own pace it can be refilled more       |
    |                 | quickly if you are hit by certain missiles or energy    |
    |                 | weapons. In addition, the Gauge can be made to stop     |
    |                 | recharging for a few seconds or emptied immediately if  |
    |                 | you are hit by certain weapons.                         |

    Just because you are a big lumbering Kaiju doesn't mean that you can't be
    beaten. During the course of a run-through you will be doing lots of battles
    with G-Force and various Kaiju.
    
    If you take lots of damage during a battle then you may see the sides of the
    screen become red. The more damage you take, the more red it becomes. If you
    continue taking damage in this state then you will be defeated and be forced
    to redo the Stage.
    
    When your screen starts going red then you need to avoid fighting until the
    redness disappears. However, your Health will never recover back to 100% - it
    will only recover to a certain amount. This means that another powerful
    attack can instantly cause your screen to go red again.

    This mode is the game's online multiplayer section. Here you can take your
    upgraded Kaijus and pit them against other players from around the world. You
    can do either two or three player battles. There are three Trophies to
    acquire here and they are not too hard to get. But, at the time of this
    writing, it is unclear how many people are still using this mode and that may
    affect whether or not you can get these Trophies.

    This game has lots of Trophies but most of them are pretty easy to acquire
    with only a small number that require a bit of work. They are broken down by

    Godzilla is the primary Kaiju and the one the game is named after. Although
    there have been many Godzillas over the years the one used for this game is
    based on the Heisei version that was used in the mid-eighties through the
    mid-nineties. Much of the information in this chapter also applies to both
    Burning Godzilla and Godzilla (1964).
    
    Below is a run-through of their basic moves:

    They have a standard three-hit combo than can be made more powerful by adding
    the Tail Sweep to the end. This is pretty effective against most Kaiju. You
    can also grab enemies. You can crush, throw, or use your Breath against it
    depending on what upgrades you have.
    
    They also have a ram move that can be used to damage buildings and Kaiju.
    This can also be used to get distance away from an enemy when you need to
    recover from an attack.
    
    Their main Breath weapon is the famous Atomic Breath. If you're Godzilla then
    you can change what Breath you want to use for a run-through depending on
    what upgrades you have. What Breath you use will also determine how often you
    can use your Dodge.
    
      **NOTE: If you're Burning Godzilla or Godzilla (1964) you cannot change 
              your Breath.
    
    Their Dodge move is the Energy Blast. This doesn't do much damage against an
    enemy but can stop them cold if they are attacking you. This move can destroy
    large groups of buildings and G-Force units. When your Gauge is fully
    upgraded then you can obtain lots of G-Energy in a hurry in the right Areas.
    
    Unlike with most Kaiju you can make Godzilla, Burning Godzilla, and Godzilla
    (1964) more powerful by upgrading their moves. I go over what it costs to
    obtain them in the Evolution Mode chapter later but I will go over how to use
    these moves here:
    
    0===========================================================================0
    | 180 Degree Turn | When you double tap either the L1 or R1 Buttons then    |
    |                 | you can do a very quick 180 degree turn. A great way to |
    |                 | quickly face an enemy that is behind you.               |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Tail Attack     | When you pull Down on your Stick or D-Pad and then      |
    |                 | press Triangle then you can do a powerful tail slam     |
    |                 | that can do damage to any enemy behind you.             |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Side Attack     | When you go Right or Left and press Triangle then you   |
    |                 | will suddenly move to the Right or Left which will      |
    |                 | allow you to avoid an attack or suddenly surprise an    |
    |                 | enemy.                                                  |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Middle Kick     | Do a Charge using the X Button then follow up with the  |
    |                 | Triangle Button to do a kick move.                      |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Back Charge     | When you pull Down on your Stick or D-Pad and press the |
    |                 | Circle Button you can quickly jump backwards using      |
    |                 | your Breath to propel you.                              |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Jump Attack     | When you press the X Button while charging then you     |
    |                 | will do a special jump move that looks like a dance.    |
    |                 | This is actually a pretty effective melee attack that   |
    |                 | does more damage than the standard ramming move.        |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Throw           | When you grab an enemy then you can throw it by using   |
    |                 | the Square Button.                                      |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Sweeping Breath | When you grab an enemy then you can use your Breath on  |
    |                 | it by using the Circle Button.                          |
    0===========================================================================0
    
    As noted, Godzilla can use different types of Breath that you can acquire in
    Evolution Mode. Listed below are the details on these new Breath types:
    
    0===========================================================================0
    | Spiral Breath | This is generally considered the most powerful of all of  |
    |               | the Breath types. It can destroy most enemies very        |
    |               | quickly and has the longest range. Unfortunately, it also |
    |               | recharges very slowly regardless of Gauge upgrades.       |
    |---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
    | Vapor Breath  | This wispy looking Breath is very weak and has the        |
    |               | shortest range out of all of the Breath types. However,   |
    |               | it also recharges the fastest.                            |
    |---------------+-----------------------------------------------------------|
    | Ring Breath   | This is a slow moving Breath attack that resembles a      |
    |               | smoke ring. However, it can hit an enemy multiple times   |
    |               | for considerable damage. It has a slow recharge rate but  |
    |               | faster than the Spiral's.                                 |

    The big difference between this and the other Godzilla's is that you have the
    very powerful Fire Breath. This gives you a serious advantage over most
    Kaiju, especially when you are upgraded. You can pretty much keep an enemy
    Kaiju at a distance and just use your Breath against it.
    
    You cannot fight yourself in the Final Stage so you are faced against
    Destoroyah instead. This is the only place to get it regularly so you may
    want to play as BG early so you can unlock Destoroyah and get its cells for
    upgrading.
    
    When going up against Destoroyah, it will tend to fly towards you to set up
    its powerful combo. Use your Tail Attack to knock it from the sky then use
    your powered Breath if it is available. Once you are fully upgraded then
    simply use your Breath from a distance and keep it from approaching, just
    like with any other Kaiju.

    This Kaiju is Downloadable Content and has no Figures for Diorama Mode. You
    also cannot play against it regardless of what Kaiju you use. The big
    difference between this and the other Godzilla's is that you have the very
    weak Vapor Breath. This means that you are limited to your melee attacks and
    Energy Blast Dodge.
    
    The Final Stage for this Godzilla is not one but *TWO* 100m Mothra (Larva)s.
    As such you should avoid this Stage until you are fully upgraded. In
    addition, you should get up above 120m to make this battle easier. You will
    need to take the Normal Route to get to this height.

    This mode is the main part of the game and where you will be spending most of
    your time. You'll be doing many run-throughs to get upgrades for G and most
    of the Trophies.
    
      **IMPORTANT: The information in this chapter pertains to Godzilla only, as 
                   you will be spending a lot of time with it, but is very useful 
                   when playing as the other Kaiju later.
    
    The primary goal in this mode is to destroy all of the G-Energy Generators, 
    which are the large yellow dots on your Radar, in each Area you go through. 
    As mentioned earlier, the Generators aren't the only thing to contend with.
    You'll be dealing with G-Force and various Kaiju who'll attack on occasion.
    The Stage ends when the Generators and Kaiju are destroyed.
    
    At the end of the Stage you can see how much time it took you to finish it,
    how much percentage of the Area destroyed, how much Height you gained, what
    Data Points you have collected (explained later), and your total Height.

    | Invasion Route \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    When you start a run-through you will begin your invasion through Japan.
    There are a maximum of ten Stages to go through to get to the end of a
    run-through. There are a total of twenty five Areas and three different
    paths, which determine difficulty, to get to the end.
    
    After each Stage you'll be presented with a Stage Branch which allows you to
    choose a path on your Invasion Route. There are three main Routes:
    
      >>Easy: 1 - 2 - 4 - 7 - 11 - 14 - 18 - 21 - 23 - 25
      >>Normal: 1 - 3 - 5 - (8 or 9) - 12 - (15 or 16) - 19 - 21 - 23 - 25
      >>Hard: 1 - 3 - 6 - 10 - 13 - 17 - 20 - 22 - 24 - 25
    
    What Route you go on will also determine the Prime Minister who will work
    alongside G-Force. You can also change difficulty during a run-through which
    will also change the Prime Minister:
    
      --Hatagoya (Easy)
        ===============
          A kind man who believes that Godzilla is no different from any other 
          animal and is hesitant to bring in additional forces.
    
      --Chujo (Normal)
        ==============
          An arrogant but unimaginative man who strictly adheres to a guidebook 
          for all of his decision making.
    
      --Takasu (Hard)
        =============
          A stoic and tough woman who will do whatever it takes to defend her 
          country from threats whatever they may be.
    
    Each Stage Branch will also inform you of which Kaiju appears in the two
    Areas to select. If the picture is blank then it has a Kaiju you haven't
    faced yet. What upgrades you are trying to acquire may determine what
    path you go on as you progress through the run-through.
    
    0============0
    | Auto Saving \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    When you complete a Stage then your progress is automatically saved. This way
    you can go back to where you were should you need to leave the game for some
    reason.
    
    0==================================================0
    | G-Energy Generators, Height, and Destruction Rate \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    G-Energy is the energy source that has attracted Godzilla back to Japan. One
    of your goals is to acquire as much of it as you can.
    
    The Generators are massive round cylinders that house the G-Energy that
    everybody around it uses daily. They have five large circular rings that spin
    around. As you do damage to it then you can see some of the rings start to
    stop. When all five rings stop then the Generator is destroyed. You can get a
    lot of G-Energy by destroying the Generator.
    
    The Generator will also throw up a shield pulse every so often when you are 
    close enough. If you are hit by this pulse then you will be knocked down but
    you won't suffer any damage.
    
    Even though the Generators have a lot of G-Energy even smaller objects and
    buildings have a little bit of this energy since it is used to run them. When
    you destroy a building or vehicle then you'll release that energy which
    you'll absorb.
    
    In the beginning you will start at a height of 50 Meters. As you absorb
    G-Energy then you will begin to grow in size. The larger you can make G grow,
    the more powerful you will become. Your melee and ramming attacks will become
    more devastating plus your Breath and Dodge attacks will become more powerful
    and their ranges will also be extended. And you will also be able to take
    more damage.
    
    If an object is destroyed by something other than yourself then you can't get
    the G-Energy from it.
    
    There is a Destruction Rate indicator which is to the right of the Disaster
    Level meter. When you reach 100% then you have destroyed every building in
    the Area. G-Force, cars, and buses do not count towards this - only
    buildings.
    
    0============0
    | Fury Chains \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    Another way to increase the amount of G-Energy you can acquire is by creating
    large Fury Chains. When you start destroying things you will see a Fury Chain
    appear on the left side of the screen. The longer the Chain becomes and the
    longer you can keep it up then the more energy you can collect from the
    things you destroy (up to 10x).
    
    If you stop destroying then the Energy Rate will start to go down. If it goes
    all the way down then the Chain ends. You can maintain the Chain by
    destroying debris or hitting something. The best way to refill the Energy
    Rate, and maintain the Chain, without destroying something is by using your
    Blast. How often you can keep the Rate up is determined by your upgrades.
    
    You can only extend the Chain, and add to the Rate multiplier, by destroying
    something. If you start a Chain at the beginning of a Stage and maintain it
    all the way through you may be able to delay the appearance of Kaiju and may
    allow you to complete a Stage without encountering any.
    
    To maximize growth you not only need to maintain large Fury Chains but also
    destroy everything you can while doing so. This includes all aircraft and
    extra forces that show up when you cross Disaster Level thresholds. In
    addition, how quickly you can max the Energy Rate will also be determined by
    the Disaster Level - the higher the Level, the more energy you can get from
    destroying the G-Forces.
    
    If you destroy everything and maintain large Fury Chains all the way through
    to the Final Stage you may be able to make G grow in excess of 120 Meters.
    Other players have managed to get Godzilla over 130 Meters.
    
    0============0
    | Time Limits \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    Some of the Stages have a time limit. This limit is how long you have to 
    destroy the Generators before they drop down into the ground for safety. If
    they drop into the ground then you fail the Stage and must redo it.
    
    If you wish to destroy everything in a Stage you should wait for a Kaiju to
    show up. Once it does then destroy the Generator which removes the timer.
    Then play keep-away from the Kaiju until you reach 100% Destruction Rate then
    fight the monster.
    
    0=================0
    | Bonus Conditions \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    Each Area has a specific Bonus Condition that will net you additional
    G-Energy if successfully completed. This usually involves destruction of
    specific vehicles. The higher the Fury Chain you have when you complete it,
    the more G-Energy you get.
    
    It is important to point out that another Kaiju can complete the Condition
    for you. Unfortunately, you won't get any anything if this happens.
    
    0================================0
    | Data Collection (Godzilla only) \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    When you do your first run-through you'll find that you cannot progress any
    further than Stage 7. The reason for that is because G-Force doesn't have
    enough information on you to create a weapon powerful enough to defeat you.
    To progress further in the game you need to collect at least 50% of all of
    the Data Points.
    
    Every Area has four Data Points which are represented by glowing orange 
    circles on your Radar. At the lower right corner of the screen is the Camera
    icon. When you get near a Data Point then you should see "NEW!" pop up. This
    indicates that you are near a Point that has not been collected.
    
    You need to use the Camera, by pressing the R3 Button, to collect the Point.
    You have to stand close to the Point until the Camera is finished collecting.
    When the Point is collected then the circle will turn purple to inform you
    that it has been permanently collected. Beneath the Camera are four "cards"
    that indicate the Data Points. This tells you which Data Points you have
    collected.
    
    If you are near a Data Point, regardless of whether or not it has been
    collected, and use the Camera then you will also greatly slow down the
    depletion of the Energy Rate of a Fury Chain while you are taking a picture.
    This can become useful for keeping up Fury Chains. Be warned though, if you
    are not near a Data Point then you can't use the Camera.
    
    Between each Stage you can see how much you have collected at the top of the
    screen (it will show as a percentage). When you have at least 50% collected
    then you can progress up to Stage 9.
    
    0============0
    | Final Stage \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    To reach the Final Stage, and Area 25, you have to be at least 100 Meters in
    height by the time you complete the end of Stage 9. The fastest way to get
    there is by doing the Easy Route and focusing on collecting all of the Data
    Points. Then do the Normal Route while doing the same thing and growing G to
    be at least 100m. By the time you complete Stage 7 you should have more than
    50% of the Points collected so you can progress to the next two Stages.
    
    The one problem with doing this method is Area 3 which is a Hard Stage (you
    need to get through it to get to Area 5 and back on Normal). If you don't
    have any Gauge upgrades, like an additional section, then it can be much
    harder than usual. Although you can skip over Area 3 and get onto the Normal
    Route later you won't get enough Data Points. You will need to do additional
    run-throughs to at least get some basic Gauge upgrades to tackle Area 3.
    
    0======0
    | Kaiju \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    G-Energy isn't just attracting you - it's also attracting other large
    creatures, either to destroy the energy or to destroy you. You'll be doing a
    lot of battles with these Kaiju. Defeating them will also allow you to
    upgrade your abilities through Evolution.
    
    Whenever you defeat a Kaiju or G-Force MechaGodzilla you gain a "Part" that
    is used for upgrading G. Certain Parts in combination will allow you to
    purchase upgrades.
    
    How long it will take for one to appear during a Stage will depend on what
    difficulty you choose. If you choose the Easy Route then it may take it
    awhile to appear and, if you destroy the last Generator before it show up,
    then you can avoid fighting it. If you choose the harder paths then it will
    appear much quicker and even appear right at the start of a Stage.
    
    In some Areas you may have to fight off two Kaiju in the same Stage. They
    don't appear both at once. One will start the fight and the other will join
    soon after.
    
    I will have more information on each Kaiju in the Playable Kaiju section.
    
    0================0
    | 100m Mismatches \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    When a Kaiju appears it can be of a random height but still be close to your
    current height either being slightly taller or slightly shorter. On the
    Normal and Hard paths the game may generate a 100m Kaiju at any Stage, even
    as early as Stage 2. You can tell when one will appear when the operator
    talks of a very strong signal.
    
    This situation is known as a 100m Mismatch. How difficult the battle will be
    is determined on how big you are at that point and how upgraded you are. Some
    Kaiju are better suited to deal with these Mismatches than others. If you
    defeat the Kaiju in a Mismatch you can get three Parts for upgrading about
    95% of the time.
    
    When facing a Mismatch your first instinct would be to quit and reload your
    progress so you can get the opposing Kaiju to a manageable size. This doesn't
    work. The reason is that the game saves not only what Kaiju appears in what
    Area but also its size. If you quit and restart then it will be 100 Meters
    again. Repeat and it will be 100 Meters again, and so on.
    
    If you have a weak Kaiju or one that is not upgraded the best thing to do is
    to let yourself be defeated by the other Kaiju then Continue. The game will
    still generate the same Kaiju but it will be closer to your height.
    
    It should be pointed out that you cannot get into a 100m Mismatch on the Easy
    Route.

    | G-Force \
    0===========================================================================>
    
    Japan isn't going to let you have an uncontested run at their cities. The
    country has a defense force that is tasked to defend the cities and find ways
    to repulse or defeat you. They are represented by small orange dots (and
    squares) on your Radar. Below is a list of vehicles and weapons that G-Force
    has:
    
    0===========================================================================0
    | Ground Forces   | These are Tanks and Rocket Launchers that will fire     |
    |                 | shells and rockets at you.                              |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Aircraft        | These are Helicopters and Planes that will try to stop  |
    |                 | you from the air. The Helicopters will hover close to   |
    |                 | you so they can fire machine guns at you. You can       |
    |                 | easily shoot them down with your Breath. As for the     |
    |                 | Planes it is best to use your Dodge as they dive down   |
    |                 | on you.                                                 |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | The Aircraft can be annoying in that they can get in    |
    |                 | the way if you wish to use your Breath on something     |
    |                 | else.                                                   |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | For example, if you want to use your Breath on a        |
    |                 | building and a Helicopter is nearby, even if it is not  |
    |                 | directly in front of the building, then you will        |
    |                 | auto-lock onto the chopper instead when you use the     |
    |                 | Breath.                                                 |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Cruisers        | On some Stages you may find large Cruisers docked in    |
    |                 | the water. They tend to fire their machine guns and     |
    |                 | rockets at you and don't seem to be affected by your    |
    |                 | rise through the Disaster Levels. As a result they pose |
    |                 | little threat to you.                                   |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Stationary Guns | These are large blocky looking constructs that carry    |

    |                 | content to fire their guns at you but, as you go up the |
    |                 | Disaster Levels, they will start to fire large groups   |
    |                 | of rockets and eventually open up to reveal Maser       |
    |                 | Cannons.                                                |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | These Guns will often be found close to Generators.     |
    0===========================================================================0
    
    How aggressive they can be is determined by what is known as the Disaster
    Level down at the bottom center of the screen. When you start a Stage it will
    be a Level 1. When you destroy buildings and vehicles you will slowly fill up
    the meter. When it fills up then you will move up to the next Level.
    
    At that point G-Force will send out more vehicles to try to stop you and send
    out more powerful forces too. G-Force will also become more aggressive in
    their attempts to stop you. How fast you progress through them is determined
    on what path you choose in Destruction Mode.
    
    In Disaster Level 1 you will see the standard response from G-Force.
    Helicopters use machine guns and there are regular Tanks that are placed
    around some Areas. Listed below are what happens when you cross into the
    advanced Disaster Levels:
    
    0===========================================================================0
    | Level 2 | Additional Planes and Helicopters will be dispatched with       |
    |         | additional Tanks being placed nearby. Stationary Guns will now  |
    |         | start to use Rockets.                                           |
    |---------+-----------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Level 3 | Additional Planes will be launched and Launchers, which will    |
    |         | now start to replace Tanks, will be placed nearby.              |
    |---------+-----------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Level 4 | Maser Tanks will start to replace Launchers and Maser Planes    |
    |         | will also fly alongside regular Plane. Stationary Guns will now |
    |         | start to use single Masers. If you're on the Hard Route then    |
    |         | Super X will be launched and you must defeat it before going to |
    |         | the next Stage.                                                 |
    |---------+-----------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Level 5 | Maser Tanks will be used exclusively for ground forces.         |
    |         | Stationary Guns will now start to use Triple Masers and Cadmium |
    |         | Missiles. Any Launchers that remain will also start to use      |
    |         | Cadmium Missiles.                                               |
    |         |                                                                 |
    |         | Cadmium Missiles are special missiles that absorb radiation and |
    |         | will create a purple cloud on impact (they may also stun on     |
    |         | occasion). This will cause your Temperature Gauge to stop       |
    |         | recharging for a few seconds.                                   |
    |         |                                                                 |
    |         | If you're on the Hard Route then Super X2 will be launched. If  |
    |         | you're on the Normal Route then Super X will be launched. If    |
    |         | you're on Area 19 when you cross into D-Level 5 then that won't |
    |         | happen since Super X naturally appears in that Area.            |
    0===========================================================================0
    
    As noted, in higher Stages and Disaster Levels you will start to see
    G-Force's more powerful weapons. Listed in order of appearance:
    
      >>Super X
        *******
          Film: The Return of Godzilla (1984 - Heisei Series)
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This is one of the more irritating enemies of the game. It can 
                 move quickly from side to side making it hard to fire your 
                 Breath on it. It also has multiple weapons that it uses 
                 aggressively.
    
                 Super X has a rapid fire cannon that can briefly stun you. It 
                 also has the ability to fire Cadmium Missiles which will create 
                 a small purple cloud on impact and briefly stun you.
    
                 However, its most powerful weapon is the Double Maser which 
                 pushes you away from the craft and seriously damages you 
                 (although it can rapidly refill your Temperature Gauge at the 
                 same time). It is also well armored - it may take several Breath 
                 blasts (depending on Breath type) to destroy it.
    
                 The combination of its speed and aggressiveness plus your slow 
                 movements makes this a formidable foe.
    
      >>Super X2
        ********
          Film: Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989 - Heisei Series)
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Unlike the Super X this craft isn't as hard to deal with. 
                 Although it can move from side to side quickly it isn't as 
                 aggressive.
    
                 Super X2 can fire a large cluster of missiles at you which can 
                 briefly stun you. But its main weapon is the Fire Mirror which 
                 is exposed when it opens the front. The Fire Mirror is designed 
                 to absorb your Breath and send it back at you while amplifying 
                 it to make it more damaging.
    
                 However, this is also a weakness because it needs you to fire at 
                 it to work. Also, it fires back if you hit the center of the 
                 Mirror. If you graze the sides then it most likely won't fire. 
                 In addition, if you have the Ring Breath, the Fire Mirror 
                 doesn't work because the Ring Breath is not a direct beam weapon 
                 and the Mirror requires one to be effective.
    
                 Even so, when its front is open, try not to fire at it until the 
                 Mirror closes. It is also not well armored only taking about two 
                 blasts (depending on Breath type) to bring it down.
    
                 Two other notes regarding the Fire Mirror. First, if a beam from 
                 another source, like a Kaiju, hits it that beam will also be 
                 reflected at whatever the Mirror is pointed at. Second, if you 
                 fire at it enough times you will be able to overheat and destroy 
                 the Mirror (just like in the movie).
    
      >>Super X III
        ***********
          Film: Godzilla vs Destoroyah (1995 - Heisei Series)
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Unlike the prior two craft this is more of a plane and less of a 
                 hovercraft. So it won't sit there trying to take potshots at 
                 you. It mainly has missile and beam weapons which are fired from 
                 the front as it dives at you.
    
                 The beam weapons are Freezing Lasers that can immediately empty 
                 your Temperature Gauge if it scores a direct hit on you. The 
                 missiles it fires are a mixture of regular and Cadmuim missiles.
    
      >>Gotengo
        *******
          Film: Godzilla: Final Wars (2004 - Millenium Series)
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This is a large futuristic craft with a giant drill on the 
                 front. It can dive on you and use the drill to hurt you but it 
                 may also use a powerful beam weapon which is also emitted from 
                 it (the Drill Beam). It can also fire missile clusters and 
                 multiple beam weapons when approaching from the side.
    
    G-Force also has two giant constructs, Super MechaGodzilla and Kiryu, and I
    will go over them in the Defenders area of the Playable Kaiju section
    (Chapters DFR5 and DFR6 respectively).

    When you enter an Area you will see that even though you are in a large city
    you are confined to a small area which is bordered by a bright orange striped
    line. You cannot cross this line but you can still destroy objects outside of
    it with your Breath and Dodge. It should be pointed out that not all Areas
    are bordered this way.
    
    Many Areas can have more than one Kaiju that can appear there. But which one
    you get to face will be randomly selected each time you do a run-through.
    
    Although there are twenty five Areas they are split up amongst several cities
    and regions that you may encounter more than once during a run-through. The
    names are based on what they are called in Diorama Mode:
    
      >>Harbor Area
        ***********
          Areas: 2, 21, 22.
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This area is based on the real life city of Yokohama and has two 
                 major Landmarks: the Cosmo World Ferris Wheel and the Landmark 
                 Tower. Although this is a sizable area most of it is water with 
                 far fewer buildings than most Areas.
    
      >>Complex
        *******
          Areas: 3, 4, 9.
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This is a large refinery area with plenty of storage tanks and 
                 other machinery to destroy. This will be your first encounter 
                 with the Stationary Guns. There are also a couple of Cruisers in 
                 the water that ring the area.
    
      >>Town at Night
        *************
          Areas: 5, 7, 10.
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This area is based on the real life area of Chiyoda, Tokyo and 
                 is home to the large National Diet Building which is another 
                 Landmark and is surrounded by three Stationary Guns. Most of the 
                 other buildings are at the opposite end of this region. There 
                 are also several hard to spot pedestrian bridges within the 
                 area.
    
      >>Mountain Base
        *************
          Areas: 6, 15.
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This area is a valley close to Mt. Fuji, one of the world's most 
                 famous mountains. You will also encounter Electrical Towers that 
                 don't seem to do any harm to you. All of the Stationary Guns are 
                 stationed by the Generators. Most of the buildings and G-Force 
                 units are spread out as well so you have to plan your path to 
                 make a good Fury Chain.
    
      >>Office District
        ***************
          Areas: 8, 11.
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This small area is based on the real life area of Minato, Tokyo 
                 and is home to the Tokyo Tower, another Landmark. This area is 
                 packed with lots of buildings so you can get plenty of G-Energy 
                 here. This area is also packed with lots of vehicles and several 
                 small pedestrian bridges.
    
      >>Sea
        ***
          Areas: 13, 14.
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This is an open sea area with no buildings of any kind to 
                 destroy.
    
      >>Exhibition Space
        ****************
          Areas: 16, 23, 24, 25.
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This area is based on the real life city of Chiba and is home to 
                 the Makuhari Messe Convention Center which is the large Landmark 
                 on one side of this area. This area has lots of buildings but 
                 also has lots of cars that will provide tons of G-Energy. This 
                 area also has several hard to spot pedestrian bridges.
    
      >>City Center
        ***********
          Areas: 12, 18, 19, 20.
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This area is based on the real life area of Shinjuku, Tokyo and 
                 is home to two Landmarks, Tokyo City Hall and the Gracery 
                 (Godzilla) Hotel. It also has plenty of buildings and G-Force 
                 units to destroy for long Fury Chains.

    In this part I will go over the various Areas and Stages for Godzilla in more
    detail. Each Area is broken down with the following:
    
    0===========================================================================0
    | Generators      | How many Generators are in the Area.                    |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Time Limit      | How much time you have if there is a limit for this     |
    |                 | Area.                                                   |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Enemies         | The Enemies that can appear at this Area.               |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Stage Branch    | What Areas you can go to from that Stage.               |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Fury Chain      | How long a Fury Chain you can get from this Area. This  |
    |                 | can vary by whether or not you cross into the next      |
    |                 | Disaster Level in that Area. That is also determined by |
    |                 | what path you choose since you can go from Easy to      |
    |                 | Normal or Hard to Normal at several points along the    |
    |                 | Invasion Route.                                         |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Growth          | How much you can grow in this Area. That is also        |
    |                 | determined by the Fury Chain.                           |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Bonus Condition | What the Bonus Condition is for the Area.               |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Orientation     | A kind of map that gives you an idea where things are   |
    |                 | at and what directions they are in.                     |
    |-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------|
    | Notes           | Notes on that Stage and Area. Most have a path that is  |
    |                 | used to get the most G-Energy from that Area. It should |
    |                 | be noted that to get the maximum growth potential in    |
    |                 | each Area it is highly recommended that you completely  |
    |                 | upgrade your Gauge to further increase recharge speed.  |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | Although use of the Vapor Breath can recharge the Gauge |
    |                 | faster it is best to use your Normal Breath because the |
    |                 | Vapor Breath is very weak.                              |
    |                 |                                                         |
    |                 | These paths can still be used to grow quickly even if   |
    |                 | you don't have all of the Gauge and Breath upgrades.    |
    |                 | But having the upgrades can help you squeeze the most   |

    | This is a pretty straightforward Stage. At first glance it appears that   |
    | it may be difficult to get a long Fury Chain but you can still get a      |
    | good one and deal with the lone Enemy at the same time:                   |
    |                                                                           |

    |      This will help you to get him to appear and get good growth for this |
    |      Stage. This is one of three Areas he only appears only in, the       |
    |      others being Area 7 and Area 16. The way to make him appear is to    |
    |      destroy between 50% to 65% of the Area and quickly destroy the       |
    |      Generator. If you take too long then he won't appear.                |
    |                                                                           |
    |      From where you start, go straight north towards the Cruiser. When    |
    |      you get there then run into it a couple of times and do a 180 Degree |
    |      Turn to use your tail to destroy it. Run towards the small boat      |
    |      furthest from you and destroy it to maintain the Chain. Then run     |
    |      into and destroy the large crane and turn north.                     |
    |                                                                           |
    |      Run to a point along the retaining wall between the remains of the   |
    |      large crane and the first line of enemy Tanks. Rotate north and use  |
    |      your Blast. Run along the wall then Blast again when you stop.       |
    |                                                                           |
    |      When you get close to the second group of enemy Tanks then, after    |
    |      Blasting, angle northwest towards the corner with the small          |
    |      cylinders. When you get here then angle north and continue running   |
    |      and destroying objects with your melee attacks.                      |
    |                                                                           |
    |      When you get to the corner the Blast to destroy the large building   |
    |      to the east to get 50% Destruction then angle northwest towards the  |
    |      group of enemy Tanks just before the Generator and run towards them  |
    |      (you should get to them just before the Chain runs out). After       |
    |      destroying them then run northeast towards the group of enemy Tanks  |
    |      at the east side of the Generator.                                   |
    |                                                                           |
    |      After destroying them then run into the Generator to start damaging  |
    |      it. When the shield gets ready to go off then Blast to prevent being |
    |      knocked down and hopefully take down some of the nearby Helicopters  |
    |      as well. With some luck you may get above 4x on the Energy Rate by   |
    |      the time you finally destroy the Generator. You may also be able to  |
    |      complete the Bonus Condition before you destroy the Generator.       |
    |                                                                           |
    |      After destroying the Generator then run towards the group of enemy   |
    |      Tanks ahead of you. As you destroy them then turn south and begin    |
    |      going down the west side of the Area running, destroying, and        |
    |      Blasting as you go. Just as you get started then Jet-Jaguar should   |
    |      show up.                                                             |
    |                                                                           |
    |      You should finally confront him just before you get to the corner    |
    |      with the container crates. Hopefully he will stay in front of you so |
    |      you can keep up the Chain as you Blast him. With a little luck the   |
    |      Helicopters can keep you with you so you can destroy them with each  |
    |      Blast. Do not try to directly fight JJ - just continue down the west |
    |      side running and Blasting until you get to the last crane.           |
    |                                                                           |
    |      Continue to the southeast corner near where you started to get the   |
    |      last two boats outside of the Area to get a little more G-Energy.    |
    |      Then fight off JJ to complete the Stage.                             |

    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | Orientation: You will start at the south end. One of the Generators will  |
    |              be just west of you. Another Generator will be at the        |
    |              northeast corner. The last Generator will be north of your   |
    |              starting position.                                           |
    |                                                                           |
    |              The Cosmo World Ferris Wheel, a major Landmark, is just west |
    |              of your starting position. Another Landmark, the Yokohama    |
    |              Landmark Tower, is the very tall building just north of the  |
    |              northeast Generator.                                         |
    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | The Kaiju you face will usually be in the 50m class which will be         |
    | slightly smaller than you given the G-Energy you have consumed so far.    |
    |                                                                           |
    | To start, go north to destroy the three Tanks on the peninsula. From      |
    | here, quickly turn southeast and run to destroy the three Tanks near the  |
    | shore. Go to the south end of the buildings and start destroying them by  |
    | running into them and hitting them. While you are doing that then you     |
    | should be attacked by a group of Planes. Blast them as they approach.     |
    |                                                                           |
    | Proceed north and destroy buildings as as you go. Destroy the building in |
    | the northeast corner then run southeast towards the Generator and destroy |
    | the three Tanks there. Do not destroy the very large building (the        |
    | Landmark Tower) nearby. After destroying the Tanks then get around to the |
    | south side of the Generator while rubbing it to keep the Chain up.        |
    |                                                                           |
    | Run north into the Generator to damage and destroy it. You should have a  |
    | 35+ Fury Chain and about 4.5x+ Energy Rate by the time it goes down. From |
    | here, quickly run into the Landmark Tower to destroy it and run to the    |
    | Cruiser to the west to keep the Chain up. By the time you reach the       |
    | second Generator then the Kaiju should show up.                           |
    |                                                                           |
    | The hard part is to keep up the Chain while dealing with the Kaiju.       |
    | Destroy the second Generator then run southwest towards the Tanks. Blast  |
    | when you get near the first one to keep up the Chain. Then proceed        |
    | southwest to Blast the rest. You should get the Bonus Condition while you |
    | are doing that.                                                           |
    |                                                                           |
    | After destroying the last Tank then run to the last Generator. Because of |
    | the distance involved you will more than likely lose the Chain unless the |
    | Kaiju is close and you can Blast it a couple of times to keep the Chain   |
    | up. When you get near the Generator then rub against it as you go to the  |
    | large Ferris Wheel and destroy it.                                        |
    |                                                                           |
    | Afterwards then destroy the Generator while fending off the Kaiju. Then   |
    | finish off the Kaiju to complete the Stage.                               |

    | Orientation: You start at the south end of this Area. One Generator will  |

    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | Because this is a Hard Area you stand about a 33% chance that the Kaiju   |
    | that shows up will be in the 100m Class. This makes this Stage more       |
    | difficult because you will more than likely be only around 70m by the     |
    | time it shows up.                                                         |
    |                                                                           |
    | The path outlined for Area 4 works but you will also cross into Disaster  |
    | Level 2 which will spawn additional enemy Tanks and Planes for extra      |
    | G-Energy.                                                                 |

    | Orientation: You start at the south end of this Area. One Generator will  |
    |              be at the west side, another will be in the east corner, and |

    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | To start, destroy the container crates nearby, go north and destroy the   |
    | four buildings and enemy Tanks plus three trucks. Destroy the Stationary  |
    | Gun and proceed north to the large storage tanks.                         |
    |                                                                           |
    | Do *NOT* destroy the large storage tank closest to you - just go after    |
    | the group of enemy Tanks just to the east. After that then turn west and  |
    | gently bump into and rub the large storage tank. At this point you will   |
    | be notified of an aircraft attack. Time a Blast to destroy the            |
    | approaching Planes and nearby Helicopters. This will also destroy the     |
    | large storage tank.                                                       |
    |                                                                           |
    | After this then proceed west to start destroying the machinery and enemy  |
    | Tanks as you proceed to the Stationary Gun in the corner near the west    |
    | Generator. Destroy the Gun then proceed back to the machinery. Do not go  |
    | after the west Generator yet. The plan is to destroy more machinery       |
    | before cutting across to the east and destroying the large storage tanks  |
    | leading to the Cruiser in the water.                                      |
    |                                                                           |
    | When you get to the last two large storage tanks before the Cruiser do    |
    | not destroy both, just the one to the right. Then get to the edge and use |
    | your Roar + Breath to destroy the Cruiser (Vapor Breath may require two   |
    | uses). Then destroy the large storage tank as you go to the line of Tanks |
    | near the East Generator. Destroy the Tanks then get to the edge and use   |
    | your Breath to destroy the tanker.                                        |
    |                                                                           |
    | Then turn around and start running into the Generator. You should have at |
    | least a 50+ Fury Chain before destroying the Generator. While you are     |
    | damaging the Generator use your Blast to take down any approaching        |
    | Aircraft and nearby Trucks. After destroying the Generator then run west  |
    | towards the Generator destroying anything in the way to maintain the      |
    | Chain.                                                                    |
    |                                                                           |
    | By the time you get to the Generator then the Kaiju should show up. The   |
    | hard part is to continue destroying everything and maintaining the Chain  |
    | while you are fending off the monster. This becomes more problematic      |
    | against Battra (Larva). You will pretty much lose the Chain early because |
    | of it. Its aggressiveness will destroy lots of machinery and push you     |
    | into open areas away from Chain extending objects.                        |
    |                                                                           |
    | After destroying the west Generator then go northeast towards the last    |
    | Stationary Gun. Use your Blast on it to damage it and destroy all the     |
    | remaining machinery nearby. Then go northeast to destroy the line of      |
    | tanks near a large dome tank. Then destroy everything else near the last  |
    | Generator. Destroy the Generator and defeat the Kaiju to complete the     |
    | Stage.                                                                    |

    | Orientation: You start at the south side of the area. The first Generator |
    |              is at the southwest corner. The second Generator is on the   |
    |              west side north of the first Generator. The last Generator   |

    | Any Kaiju that shows up is going to be a bit more aggressive than it      |
    | would be on Easy. Worse, you may end up in a 100m Mismatch about a third  |
    | of the time - this is especially bad with Battra. Since you more than     |
    | likely be at around 80m at this point you are better off just standing    |
    | still and letting it beat you so you can Continue and get a more          |
    | reasonable size.                                                          |
    |                                                                           |
    | Do the Maximum Growth path outlined in Area 7 but with one little change. |
    | When you get near the line of Tanks northeast of the first Generator then |
    | get closer to them so you can destroy the nearby building with your Blast |
    | before going south. This will prevent the approaching Kaiju from          |
    | destroying it later.                                                      |
    |                                                                           |
    | Destroy the remaining buildings and reach the first Generator. By the     |
    | time you get here then the Kaiju should show up. After destroying the     |
    | Generator then run up to the Kaiju and use it to keep the Chain up before |
    | destroying the Stationary Gun. Then destroy the one in the corner while   |
    | fending off the Kaiju with your Blast.                                    |
    |                                                                           |
    | As you damage and destroy the remaining Generators try to fend off the    |
    | Kaiju long enough to allow you to destroy them before it does. This is    |
    | obviously much harder when Battra (Larva) is taken into consideration.    |

    | Orientation: You start at the south side of the area. The first Generator |
    |              is at the southwest corner. The second Generator is on the   |
    |              west side north of the first Generator. The last Generator   |

    |              The National Diet Building, a major Landmark, is next to the |
    |              last Generator.                                              |
    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | This is an easy Stage because there is no Kaiju, other than Jet-Jaguar,   |
    | to confront you.                                                          |
    |                                                                           |
    | To start, turn northeast and destroy the buildings while heading up the   |
    | shoreline. When you get to the last rounded building then turn southwest  |
    | a little bit and run over the three Tanks nearby. Do not destroy the      |
    | building near them. Start heading back south running into and destroying  |
    | buildings. Don't forget cars and pedestrian bridges.                      |
    |                                                                           |
    | Leave the blocks between the first and second Generator alone but destroy |
    | all buildings east of them. Head towards the first Generator in the       |
    | corner and start damaging it. Blast when the Generator throws up its      |
    | shield. At this point you should have at least 25 Fury when you start     |
    | damaging the Generator. This includes destroying any nearby Helicopters.  |
    |                                                                           |
    | After destroying the Generator then wade through the blocks of buildings  |
    | Blasting them as you head to the second Generator. As you are damaging    |
    | the Generator you should have at least 50 Fury. After destroying the      |
    | Generator then head towards the first Stationary Gun while destroying the |
    | building I said to spare so you can keep up the Chain.                    |
    |                                                                           |
    | Destroy the Stationary Gun and the nearby pedestrian bridge before going  |
    | after the second Stationary Gun in the corner. As you are heading there   |
    | run over the Tanks along the way. If you've done a lot of destruction in  |
    | the previous Stages then you should cross over into Disaster Level 2.     |
    | Take the time to Blast incoming Planes before proceeding to destroy the   |
    | remaining buildings.                                                      |
    |                                                                           |
    | Head over to the last Stationary Gun while destroying the remaining       |
    | ground forces along the way. After destroying the Gun the destroy the     |
    | last Generator to complete the Stage.                                     |
    |                                                                           |

    |    *********************************                                      |
    |      This is the second of three Stages you can make Jet-Jaguar appear in |
    |      order to get this Trophy (the last being Area 16). In order to get   |
    |      him to appear you need to destroy between 50 to 65% and quickly      |
    |      destroy the last Generator.                                          |
    |                                                                           |
    |      Go to the southwest corner to destroy the Generator. Destroy the two |
    |      buildings and the pedestrian bridge on the way there. After          |
    |      destroying the Generator then proceed through the buildings to the   |
    |      second Generator. Do not use your Dodge - just use your melee        |
    |      attacks to destroy the buildings.                                    |
    |                                                                           |
    |      You should be at 43% Destruction when you destroy the Generator. Run |
    |      towards the Stationary Gun in the corner - run through the single    |
    |      building along the way to keep up the Chain. Destroy the Gun and the |
    |      building next to it. Then run through and destroy the National Diet  |
    |      Building. You should be at about 53% Destruction when you do this.   |
    |      Then destroy the last Generator to bring about Jet-Jaguar.           |

    | The Kaiju appears immediately at the start of the Stage. In addition, it  |
    | may be a 100m Class a third of the time. While you may be bigger than you |
    | were the last Stage you may want to just let it beat you so you can get   |
    | the most G-Energy from this Area. Trying to fight a 100m class in this    |
    | Area will result in the Kaiju destroying lots of buildings and denying    |
    | you G-Energy.                                                             |

    | To limit destruction of buildings by it just go up the main road and      |
    | start fighting it. Use your combos and tail attack against it while       |
    | waiting for your Gauge to charge. When it does then start using your      |
    | Breath against it from a distance.                                        |
    |                                                                           |
    | Although you will be destroying buildings during the fight you may want   |
    | to leave a few standing so you can rub against them to keep your Chain up |
    | while you wait for your Gauge to charge so you can Breathe on the Kaiju   |
    | some more.                                                                |

    | Of course, how quickly you can defeat it and how much of a Chain you can  |
    | get is dependent on the Kaiju you face. Once you defeat the Kaiju then    |
    | proceed to destroy the rest of the Area in the manner outlined for Area   |
    | 11.                                                                       |

    | As for the Bonus Condition, here are two Patrol Cars just northwest of    |
    | your starting point near the border. There are three at the northwest     |
    | corner. There are two in the road just northeast of your starting         |

    |              be at the west side, another will be in the east corner, and |
    |              the last one will be at the northwest corner.                |
    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | It will be awhile before the Kaiju shows up so destroy as much as you can |
    | in the meantime. Even with the time limit you should have little problem  |
    | with this area. You will be pretty large at this point so it will be      |
    | easier to destroy large sections quickly.                                 |
    |                                                                           |
    | This is important where Destoroyah is concerned. Its aggressiveness will  |
    | destroy large sections quickly which will deny you G-Energy. Destroying   |
    | most of the Area first should prevent that regardless of which Kaiju      |
    | appears.                                                                  |

    | Use the path from Area 4 here. The Kaiju should appear as you get close   |
    | to the last Generator and should be at the far end. You should be able to |
    | destroy the Generator before it can do it for you. Use your Blast to keep |
    | it at bay while you finish off the Generator. Then defeat the Kaiju to    |
    | complete the Stage.                                                       |

    | The major difference between Area 7 and here is that you will have to     |

    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | To start, go north to the northwest corner while destroying buildings by  |
    | smashing them while also running over Tanks and cars. When you get to the |
    | northwest corner then go back south and destroy the row of blocks until   |
    | you get back to near your starting point. Then destroy the line of        |
    | buildings close to the south end of the long bridge and south of the      |
    | Tokyo Tower.                                                              |

    | After that then go north to destroy the Tanks and the Tower itself. Then  |
    | go north to destroy the remaining buildings south of the first Generator. |
    | The Kaiju should show up by then. Fend off the Kaiju using your Blast as  |
    | you damage the Generator. After destroying the Generator then go east     |
    | through the buildings to the north end of the long bridge.                |

    | Destroy the north end then proceed south to destroy the rest of the       |
    | bridge. Destroy the tall building then the Stationary Gun. Proceed east   |
    | to and destroy the second Generator. Destroy the remaining buildings      |
    | leading to the last Generator. After destroying the Generator then defeat |

    | Orientation: You start on the south side of the Area. The first two       |
    |              Generators are on the east and west central sides of the     |
    |              Area. The last Generator is at the far north end.            |
    |                                                                           |
    |              Tokyo City Hall, a major Landmark, is the large building     |
    |              just south of the last Generator. Another Landmark, the      |
    |              Gracery (Godzilla) Hotel, is just northeast of your starting |
    |              position.                                                    |
    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | The Kaiju appears after a minute so destroy the south section of the city |
    | as quickly as possible. By the time it appears you should have destroyed  |
    | most of that side and, hopefully, it should appear in an area already     |
    | destroyed. This should keep it behind you and use your Blast to keep it   |
    | away as you destroy the remainder of the city and Generators.             |
    |                                                                           |
    | The best path is to start at either the west or east Generator, destroy   |
    | it, then go to the north Generator, destroy it, then destroy the          |
    | remaining Generator basically taking a U-path around the Area.            |

    | enough and destroy the three Subs then you can avoid the second monster.  |

    | This particular Area is different is that you are in the water with no    |
    | buildings around. There are three G-Energy Submarines that appear and     |
    | disappear randomly. When they appear then they will send out a cluster of |
    | missiles toward you. The Kaiju appears immediately with G-Force sending   |
    | out waves of Aircraft now and then.                                       |
    |                                                                           |
    | Since there are no buildings to destroy you can't really grow much.       |
    | You'll be lucky to get a third of a Meter in this Stage.                  |

    | This should be your first encounter with the Electrical Towers. They can  |
    | help speed up your Gauge recharge a little but poses no threat. Although  |
    | everything is spread out you can chain your way to a long Fury Chain with |

    | However, you have to keep an eye open for small thin pipes within the     |
    | large cluster just south of the second Generator if you want 100%         |
    | Destruction. This is what tends to throw players off in this reagard.     |

    | The Kaiju will appear about a minute in and about the time you should've  |
    | destroyed the first Generator. The Kaiju will destroy a little bit of the |
    | Area as it heads to you so destroy as much as you can as you go to it to  |
    | get more G-Energy and to maintain the Chain.                              |
    |                                                                           |
    | Use your Blast to destroy large sections and to keep the Kaiju at bay as  |
    | you go around the Area. The second Generator should be the last thing     |
    | destroyed before finishing off the Kaiju.                                 |

    | After a couple of steps then Blast to destroy the Tanks and cars parked   |
    | outside of the border. Angle northeast, run a little bit, then Blast to   |
    | destroy all of the large buildings and walkways near the second           |
    | Generator.                                                                |

    | Then run northwest back to the border and Blast again to destroy more     |
    | vehicles parked outside the Area. Run north to the first Generator.       |
    | Destroying everything before it should make you cross into Disaster Level |
    | 4. This should spawn more ground forces and aircraft for additional       |
    | G-Energy.                                                                 |

    | After destroying the first Generator then run east and destroy the large  |
    | Convention Center building. Run south to the secondary Convention Center  |
    | building while destroying the pedestrian bridge that sits between the     |
    | buildings. After destroying the building then go to the east end of the   |
    | train tracks.                                                             |
    |                                                                           |
    | Destroy the remainder of the tracks which should lead you to the parking  |
    | lot south of the second Generator. Run to the middle of the lot and Blast |
    | to destroy all of the car and remaining Tanks. Then destroy the Generator |
    | to complete the Stage.                                                    |
    |                                                                           |
    | As for the Bonus Condition, there are two Patrol Cars near your starting  |
    | position, two more near the southeast corner, two at the southeast corner |
    | of the center parking lot, and one amongst the walkways west of the       |
    | second Generator.                                                         |
    |                                                                           |
    |   >>{Our Hero, Jet-Jaguar} Trophy (3)                                     |
    |     *********************************                                     |
    |       This is the last of three Stages you can make Jet-Jaguar appear in  |
    |       order to get this Trophy. As with Area 7 you need to get up to 50%  |
    |       Destruction in order to get him to appear.                          |
    |                                                                           |
    |       To start, go north along the west border destroying buildings and   |
    |       to the north Generator. Destroy the Generator then go south along   |
    |       the main road back to your starting point. As you go down the road  |
    |       then destroy the large buildings to your left and the small         |
    |       walkways that are on each side of the road.                         |
    |                                                                           |
    |       When you get back to the train tracks then go east to start         |
    |       destroying them. When you get up to just over 50% then go back      |
    |       north through the parking lot and destroy the Generator to get JJ   |
    |       to appear. When you finally defeat him then you'll get the cutscene |
    |       and the Trophy.                                                     |

    | Orientation: You start out at the south end. The first Generator is just  |
    |              northwest of you and the second Generator is at the far      |
    |              north end.                                                   |

    | This Area is an unidentified valley with the buildings and electrical     |
    | towers spread out. There is also going to be a lot of aircraft so this is |
    | a good place to get both the {Helicopter Swatter} and {Jet Fighter        |
    | Downer} Trophies. The layout is different from the PS3 version where      |
    | there are fewer buildings at the beginning and no Stationary Guns.        |
    |                                                                           |
    | To start, run through the nearest group of buildings as you go to the     |
    | first Generator. Then run into and destroy the first Generator. Go to the |
    | line of Towers and follow them to the buildings near the second           |
    | Generator. Use your Blast on most of them to get rid of them quickly. The |
    | Kaiju should appear just as you get to the Generator. Destroy the         |
    | Generator before the Kaiju gets there.                                    |
    |                                                                           |
    | As you fight the Kaiju, and depending on how many Aircraft you destroy,   |
    | you should cross into Disaster Level 4. This will prompt the arrival of   |
    | Super X and a bunch of aircraft. Try to destroy as many of the Aircraft   |
    | as you can while fighting off the Kaiju. If you destroy enough Aircraft   |
    | then you should get at least one, if not both, Aircraft related Trophies. |

    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | Orientation: You start on the south side of the Area. The first two       |
    |              Generators are on the east and west central sides of the     |
    |              Area. The last Generator is at the far north end.            |
    |                                                                           |
    |              Tokyo City Hall, a major Landmark, is the large building     |
    |              just south of the last Generator. Another Landmark, the      |
    |              Gracery (Godzilla) Hotel, is just northeast of your starting |
    |              position.                                                    |
    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | If you take the Easy Route first when you start playing the game then     |
    | this should be the first time you will encounter Super X. As already      |
    | mentioned, Super X is one of the more annoying enemies in the game as it  |
    | moves fast and has an array of weapons to use against you. But there is a |
    | way to deal with it quickly and with minimal damage in a process I call   |
    | "wait-and-corner".                                                        |
    |                                                                           |
    | When you first start the Stage go to the southwest corner and stay there. |
    | While you're waiting for Super X to show up then destroy the three        |
    | Helicopters that hover nearby with your Breath. When Super X arrives it   |
    | may stick to the border.                                                  |
    |                                                                           |
    | What you want to do is move in such a way as to keep it against the       |
    | border and maybe put it in the corner so you can quickly deal some up     |
    | close damage. If it moves away from the border then let it attack you     |
    | while you try to get it to move against the border again so you can       |
    | corner it. Once against the border then hit it with your melee attacks    |
    | until it is defeated.                                                     |
    |                                                                           |
    | After you defeat Super X then you have the entire city to yourself to     |
    | destroy at your leisure. I prefer to go west to east while going north    |
    | destroying everything heading up to the north Generator.                  |

    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | Orientation: You start on the south side of the Area. The first two       |
    |              Generators are on the east and west central sides of the     |
    |              Area. The last Generator is at the far north end.            |
    |                                                                           |
    |              Tokyo City Hall, a major Landmark, is the large building     |
    |              just south of the last Generator. Another Landmark, the      |
    |              Gracery (Godzilla) Hotel, is just northeast of your starting |
    |              position.                                                    |

    | If you do the Normal Route after doing the Easy Route then most likely    |
    | this will be the first time you will encounter Super X2. As noted earlier |
    | it is less aggressive than Super X and has fewer weapons. Of course, you  |
    | have to deal with Super X first. And you deal with both craft the same    |
    | way as you did in Area 18: "wait-and-corner".                             |
    |                                                                           |
    | After destroying both craft then you can rampage through the city at your |
    | leisure. Along the way you will cross over into Disaster Level 5.         |
    | Normally this will entail dealing with the Super X craft but you have     |
    | already done that. Make an effort to destroy the extra Tanks wherever     |
    | they appear.                                                              |
    |                                                                           |
    | As for the Bonus Condition, the Patrol Cars are small cars with blinking  |
    | red lights on top. Because of their size, even with the lights, they are  |
    | hard to spot. One can be found by the group of Tanks just north of the    |
    | train tracks, another can be found just north of that, one by the Gracery |
    | Hotel, one by the west Generator, one by the east Generator, and two in   |
    | front of the large City Hall building.                                    |

    0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0
    | Unfortunately, because of the tight time limit, you cannot do the         |
    | "wait-and-corner" method. You will have to destroy the Area while fending |
    | off all three craft. Because of the time limit you will need to do a      |
    | different path. Go north and destroy the west Generator then go north to  |
    | destroy the north Generator and go south to destroy the east Generator to |
    | kill the timer.                                                           |

    | After that then destroy the rest of the city as you deal with the Super X |
    | craft. Use your Blast on occasion to limit their attacks, especially      |
    | Super X's. Once you destroy the entire city then focus on destroying      |
    | Super X since that is the most dangerous of the three. Keep moving to     |
    | keep them from getting a bead on you.                                     |

    |              northeast corner. The last Generator will be north of your   |
    |              starting position.                                           |
    |                                                                           |
    |              The Cosmo World Ferris Wheel, a major Landmark, is just west |
    |              of your starting position. Another Landmark, the Yokohama    |
    |              Landmark Tower, is the very tall building just north of the  |
    |              northeast Generator.                                         |

    | This Area is where you will likely encounter Gotengo for the first time.  |
    |                                                                           |
    | Although it looks like a powerful enemy it really isn't. Its Drill Beam   |
    | weapon can stun you but not damage you seriously. And the Blue Beam       |
    | weapon attacks are more annoying than anything because it can keep you    |
    | stunned for a long time until it finishes its attack (and preventing you  |
    | from making your own).                                                    |
    |                                                                           |
    | In addition, it doesn't attack you often enough, like the Super X, to     |
    | make any substantial impact. The hardest thing about it is trying to hit  |
    | it with your Breath to quickly defeat it.                                 |
    |                                                                           |
    | Most of the time when it dives on you it will use its Drill Beam weapon.  |
    | You can tell when it is going to use it when it goes away from the area a |
    | bit then turn around and dive. Fire off a Breath ray just before it fires |
    | to do some damage before it fires its weapon.                             |
    |                                                                           |
    | When your attack is broken then use your Blast to do additional damage as |
    | it passes. However, you probably won't be able to do this double attack   |
    | until you have upgraded some.                                             |
    |                                                                           |
    | Sometimes it will leave that area, get far away, then slowly dive at you. |
    | This means that it will try to use its massive drill to ram you. This is  |
    | the best attack for you since you can do massive and, depending on Breath |
    | upgrades, possibly fatal damage. Just as it gets close to you then fire   |
    | off your Breath to hit it.                                                |
    |                                                                           |
    | Trying to hit it on its side is also tricky in that it will generally use |
    | its other beam attacks to stun you and keep you from doing anything until |
    | it is out of your range.                                                  |
    |                                                                           |
    | Sometimes it will use its missile attacks instead of its Blue Beam        |
    | weapon. As it passes in front of you then you need to angle G to fire a   |
    | Breath ray in front of Gotengo. If you try to fire at its center then G   |
    | will turn to fire at Gotengo's rear which often results in a miss. By     |
    | firing in front then you have a good chance to do serious damage to       |
    | Gotengo.                                                                  |
    |                                                                           |
    | If it gets close enough and not using its beams then use your Tail Attack |
    | on it which will inflict serious damage.                                  |
    |                                                                           |
    | When the Kaiju shows up then Gotengo may attack it sometimes. This is a   |
    | good strategy for dealing with Gotengo since it will be easier to destroy |
    | it as it is distracted. You can get at its sides more easily to get rid   |
    | of it quicker then focus on the Kaiju to complete the Stage.              |
    |                                                                           |
    | The path for Area 2 works here but you don't need to destroy the Ferris   |
    | Wheel first since Gotengo will show up regardless of what you do.         |
    | However, you need to be fast so you will need to Blast through most of    |
    | the buildings. How quickly you can do that will be dependent on what      |
    | Breath you choose for your run-through.                                   |
    |                                                                           |
    | If you took the Normal Route to this point then you will cross over into  |
    | Disaster Level 5 which will generate additional ground forces and         |
    | aircraft for additional G-Energy.                                         |

    | Although you may fight Super MechaGodzilla by itself most of the time you |
    | will fight both it and Rodan at the same time in a two-on-one battle.     |
    | This was inspired by the battle in the movie Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla   |
    | (1993). Rodan will immediately appear at the start with SMG appearing     |
    | shortly thereafter.                                                       |
    |                                                                           |
    | With Rodan appearing at the start this makes getting a long Fury Chain    |
    | difficult because it will destroy quite a few buildings trying to get to  |
    | you. This will deny you precious G-Energy.                                |
    |                                                                           |
    | Rodan likes to use its Wing Shockwave move quite a bit when at a distance |
    | and will peck at you when up close. It is best to Blast it every so often |
    | to keep it at a distance.                                                 |
    |                                                                           |
    | To start, go northwest and destroy the nearby building and train tracks   |
    | with your melee attacks. Then go to the west edge and proceed north a     |
    | little bit then Blast to destroy all of the cars in the parking lot just  |
    | outside the border. Run north a bit the Blast again to get the buses in   |
    | the parking lot. Of course, you'll have to fend off Rodan as you do so.   |
    |                                                                           |
    | Continue north until you reach the north Generator. By that time SMG will |
    | show up. After destroying the north Generator then go south to destroy    |
    | the last Generator fending off both Kaiju at the same time. Once the      |
    | Generator is destroyed then go and destroy everything else while fighting |
    | off the others. This two-on-one battle will make it difficult to maintain |
    | a Chain.                                                                  |
    |                                                                           |
    | Although SMG has multiple attacks it uses its Mega Buster exclusively. It |
    | is rare that it uses any attack other than that. It also uses the Mega    |
    | Buster constantly whenever it gets up enough charge to do so. During the  |
    | course of a battle it will use it at least fifteen times.                 |
    |                                                                           |
    | This makes SMG very annoying since you will have to use your Blast a lot  |
    | to fend off the Buster and try to do some damage to it. This also         |
    | indicates that SMG is broken in some way and should be patched to make it |
    | mix up its other attacks.                                                 |
    |                                                                           |
    | SMG can also fly which will make it hard for you to get a bead on it      |
    | while it has no problem shooting you in the back with its Mega Buster.    |
    |                                                                           |
    | Running at either Rodan or SMG often results in a face full of Shockwave  |
    | or Mega Buster. Using your Tail Sweep can be effective at chipping away   |
    | at their health. Using your Breath can also help. But that depends on     |
    | what kind of Breath you use. Using the Vapor Breath makes this a tough    |
    | battle since it does so little damage.                                    |
    |                                                                           |
    | To make matters worse you may cross into Disaster Level 4 during the      |
    | battle which will also bring about the appearance of Super X thus turning |
    | this into a potential three-on-one fight.                                 |
    |                                                                           |
    | The good news is that most often Super X gets into a fight with Rodan     |
    | occupying them while you can focus on SMG. Take full advantage when this  |
    | happens. Whoever wins between Rodan and Super X will be weakened thus     |
    | making it easier to defeat. In addition, when one or more try to attack   |
    | you with range weapons at least one of them may get caught in the         |
    | crossfire which will make your job a little easier.                       |

    | You will notice that you may be facing off against both Kiryu and Mothra  |
    | (Adult) at the same time. This was inspired by the battle in the movie    |
    | Godzilla X Mothra X MechaGodzilla: Tokyo S.O.S. (2003). Mothra will       |
    | appear immediately with Kiryu appearing shortly thereafter.               |
    |                                                                           |
    | However, one time I got Super MechaGodzilla instead of Mothra. It's bad   |
    | enough having to deal with Kiryu but to deal with SMG at the same time?   |
    | That's just plain mean, especially with SMG spamming the absolute hell    |
    | out of its Mega Buster weapon.                                            |
    |                                                                           |
    | Take the same path outlined in Area 23 to get the most G-Energy from this |
    | Stage while fending off Mothra. As for Mothra itself:                     |

    | Mothra tends to be aggressive often ramming you and using its beam        |
    | attacks. You'll often have to use your Blast to keep it at bay as you go  |
    | around trying to destroy objects and the Generators. By the time you      |
    | reach the north Generator Kiryu should show up.                           |
    |                                                                           |
    | Although it has multiple weapons Kiryu is easier to deal with than Super  |
    | MechaGodzilla because it doesn't use just one attack constantly. Kiryu    |
    | tends to mix up its attacks a bit making it less annoying than SMG.       |
    | Unlike with Area 23 it is easier to keep a long Fury Chain going because  |
    | this pairing isn't as bad as SMG/Rodan.                                   |
    |                                                                           |
    | Successfully defeating Kiryu should earn you the {MechaGodzilla Hunter}   |
    | and the {Advanced Weapon Destroyer} Trophies.                             |
    |                                                                           |
    | **NOTE: There are three aircraft that fly around that you can't destroy.  |
    |         These are the support craft that control Kiryu (AC-3 White        |
    |         Heron).                                                           |

    | You will be back in the same city that you destroyed in the last Stage.   |
    | All of the G-Energy you have consumed will transform you into Burning     |
    | Godzilla which will make you more dangerous and powerful. It will also    |
    | transform your Breath into the more powerful Fire Breath weapon but will  |
    | not affect the speed of your Temperature Gauge recharge.                  |
    |                                                                           |
    | G-Force will send out lots of aircraft and ground forces to try to        |
    | contain your eventual meltdown. Some of them will have special Freeze     |
    | Missiles that will immediately drain your Temperature Gauge so it is      |
    | imperative to destroy these forces quickly.                               |
    |                                                                           |
    | To start, go east and destroy all of the Tanks in that section then head  |
    | north to destroy another line near the northeast corner. Then run west to |
    | destroy more Tanks until you get to the last group. Then use your Blast   |
    | to get rid of them and any Aircraft attacking you.                        |
    |                                                                           |
    | At this point you may get hit with a lot of Freeze Missiles which will    |
    | deplete your Gauge and make it harder to refill. This will also make it   |
    | hard to maintain a Chain although you will also lose it because you will  |
    | eliminate most, if not all, of the immediate Aircraft.                    |
    |                                                                           |
    | At this point Super X III will show up. Unlike the prior two Super X      |
    | craft this is more of a plane and less of a hovercraft. So it won't sit   |
    | there trying to take potshots at you. Although it has multiple weapons it |
    | won't use them unless it is diving at you.                                |
    |                                                                           |
    | And diving at you gives you an excellent way to blast it as it comes to   |
    | you and before it can do any damage. And it is lightly armored too which  |
    | means that one good blast of your Fire Breath can take it down.           |
    |                                                                           |
    | At about the 2:20 mark then Godzilla (2014) should show up. Although big  |
    | and powerful it can be brought down with your improved Breath rather      |
    | quickly. Just stay your distance and use your Roar + Breath ray on it     |
    | every so often. It will take four to five Breaths to defeat it.           |
    |                                                                           |
    | Most of the time it will just kind of lumber towards you and scope you    |
    | out which will make it easy for you to Breathe on it. However, it may     |
    | fire off its own powerful Breath weapon and can knock you on your ass. It |
    | will only use it more than once if you try to do any melee attacks on it  |
    | which is really not a good idea since you will only do minor damage to it |
    | because of its massive size.                                              |
    |                                                                           |
    | Another option is to use your Blast against it for awhile so you can      |
    | destroy incoming aircraft to acquire the {Helicopter Swatter} and {Jet    |
    | Fighter Downer} Trophies if you hadn't done so already. When you have     |
    | destroyed most, if not all, of the Aircraft then fight off LG with your   |
    | Breath.                                                                   |
    |                                                                           |
    | Successfully completing this Stage will give you Godzilla (2014) Cells    |
    | that you can use to unlock it in Evolution Mode plus the {A Monster's     |
    | Legacy} Trophy.                                                           |

    In this section I go over all of the other Kaiju that you can play in the
    game. They are broken down into two groups and I will start off with.....
    
      0======================================0
     / The Playable Kaiju \~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
    0==========================================================================\
    | >PKJ1. The Invaders                                                       0
    0==========================================================================/
    
    The Invaders comprise most of the Kaiju in the game. The goal of these Kaiju
    is the same as with Godzilla - destroy Generators, grow as much as they can,
    and complete the Final Stage. But there are major differences between playing
    as Godzilla and playing as another Invading Kaiju.
    
    For starters, you will do a standard ten Stage run-through but that only the
    Final Stage is locked. None of these Kaiju need to collect Data Points so you
    can progress to Stage 9 minimum. You will still need to get above 100m to get
    to the Final Stage though.
    
    If your run ends at Stage 9 you will get a Silver Star upon completion along
    with two of your chosen Kaiju's parts. If your run ends upon completion of
    the Final Stage then you will get a Gold Star and three of your chosen
    Kaiju's parts.
    
    Another difference is that there is no story to go with these Kaiju. As a
    result some of the dialogue will change. But you will have the same Bonus
    Conditions as it was with Godzilla.
    
    In addition, at Stage 1 you will randomly face one of four Kaiju: Battra
    (Larva), MechaGodzilla, Hedorah, Mothra (Larva). You will not face Jet-Jaguar
    at this Stage. Depending on which Kaiju you play as this Area can be tougher
    than you think, especially if you face any but MechaGodzilla. Battra and
    Mothra are very aggressive and Hedorah has that nasty four-hit combo.
    
    Even though you may be getting slightly larger as you progress through the
    Stage the enemy Kaiju can still break up combos rather easily because you are
    not much larger that they are. And they can execute their combos much easier
    than you can which can lead to low health quickly. This is not a terrible
    issue if you are mostly upgraded so you can use your Breath more but can be a
    pain in the ass if you are just starting out with your chosen Kaiju.
    
    Although you will not face Jet-Jaguar at Stage 1 it will always be at Area 16
    just as it is when playing as Godzilla and with the same rules for
    appearance. Biollante will also be at its usual spot, Area 17 (except when
    you play as it).
    
    You'll get a mix of the lower end Kaiju in the early Stages and the more
    powerful ones will show up in the later ones.
    
    In Areas 18, 19, and 20 you'll face the Super X craft just like with
    Godzilla. In Area 21 you'll face Super MechaGodzilla and in Area 22 you'll
    face off against Type-3 Kiryu (plus Gotengo). It is important to point out
    that you may face either Super X or Super X2 in addition to any of the
    MechaGodzillas based on what path you choose and how well you're doing.
    
      >>Godzilla
        ********
          In Areas 22 and 23 you'll go up against Godzilla itself. It will 
          usually be no smaller than 90m and tends to be aggressive. It is mostly 
          upgraded and can do back-to-back Breath and/or Dodge attacks. It 
          usually tends to ram to set up its combo and that can be an opening to 
          do your attacks (depending on chosen Kaiju).
    
      >>Burning Godzilla
        ****************
          Unless you're playing as it you'll face Burning Godzilla in the Final 
          Stage. Being as it is the final Kaiju to fight in a run-through it is 
          also one of the toughest. It can time its attacks better than regular 
          Godzilla and has the powerful Fire Breath.
    
          In addition, it is also upgraded which means that it can fire off its 
          Energy Blast and/or Fire Breath in rapid succession. And you have three 
          minutes to defeat it while also dealing with Super X III which can also 
          present problems. How hard or easy it will be to deal with BG is 
          dependent on what Kaiju you use and how upgraded it is. Some Kaiju are 
          more suited to deal with BG than others.
    
          As for playing as Burning Godzilla that was already covered in Chapter 
          MDE1.
    
    Depending on what Kaiju you play there will be some minor differences on what
    Kaiju you face and where.

    | As an Enemy \
    0========================================>
    
    Anguirus is a large armadillo-like creature with large spikes on its back and
    a long tail. It was Godzilla's enemy in its first appearance in 1955 but
    would later become a friend and partner in later films in the Showa Series.
    
    Anguirus' armor plated back helps to protect the beast against small attacks.
    It doesn't have an energy based range weapon but the use of its long tail can
    help keep other Kaiju at a distance. It can also burrow underground when it
    needs to to avoid attack.
    
    Because it lacks an energy weapon it is easier to defeat than most Kaiju. But
    its armor still makes it a little tough to take down.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    This is also one of the worst Kaiju to play as. In the movies it moves at a
    decent speed. However, in the game, it moves painfully slow. Way too slow for
    a creature like this. As a result it is difficult to get long Fury Chains,
    especially on the Hard path.
    
    The Anguirus Ball is a good way to damage other Kaiju but you will land right
    next to the enemy so you need to be ready with some kind of counter. The Back
    Leg Sand Toss is a lame range attack but the designers needed to give it
    something. It is also telling that Anguirus is the only Kaiju that doesn't
    face Super X III and Gotengo - it wouldn't be able to hit them given its list
    of attacks.
    
    One other note: when you face Godzilla in Areas 23 and 24 it will have its
    weak Vapor Breath attack. This is probably in reference to the first meeting
    between the two Kaiju in the film Godzilla's Counterattack.
    
    Although its standard combo is good against other Kaiju I find Anguirus a
    weak Kaiju to play as, even with upgrades. I recommend playing Anguirus first
    so you can get it out of the way quickly.
    
    When dealing with Super X and Super X2 it is best to use the Back Tackle to 
    damage them and move around quickly so it will be harder for them to hit you.
    The Tail Attack can also hit them. The Back Leg Sand Toss doesn't work
    because the attack just goes right underneath them.
    
    I find that using the Back Tackle constantly against both regular and Burning
    Godzilla works fairly well.

    Rodan is a very large pterodactyl-like creature that appeared in its own film
    in 1956 and would later become part of the G-Universe in 1964.
    
    Rodan can fly, send shockwaves, and ram as part of its attack arsenal.
    However, its most powerful attack is a three-hit combo involving pecking at
    you which it will do often. However, despite that, it is not a tough creature
    to deal with.
    
    A healthy dose of melee attacks can defeat it with little problem. Even
    better is that Rodan will try to fly at you sometimes and you can easily
    knock it out of the sky leaving it vulnerable to your attacks.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    Although it can be easy to defeat as an enemy it is also a good Kaiju to use.
    Your three-hit pecking combo can make short work of most Kaiju and the
    Kick-Up move is great for destroying buildings and Aircraft (can also be
    added to end of the three-hit combo).
    
    The Kick-up move is also excellent against the Super X craft and against
    Gotengo. When Gotengo uses its drill beam then use your Area Shockwave Dodge
    and then the Kick-Up. You can also use that move when facing Gotengo's side.
    
    But there are some Kaiju you may have some problems with.
    
    The first is Biollante. Its arms make it hard to get in close for your
    combos, especially since you can easily be knocked out of the sky. You can
    use your Sonic Ram to get in close to do combos but that tends to make
    Biollante use its powerful Dodge and do serious damage to you. Although your
    Wing Shockwave does a small amount of damage you may have to rely upon that
    to chip at its health from a distance.
    
    The second is Godzilla. Godzilla tends to be cheap with its attacks and can
    keep you from gaining momentum with your combos. Like with Biollante you may
    need to use your Wing Shockwave a lot against it to slowly wear down its
    health. You may have to do the same against Burning Godzilla.

    | As an Enemy \
    0========================================>
    
    This Kaiju is a massive gold three-headed winged beast that is the most
    popular villain in the G-Universe. In the Showa Series it is a space monster
    but the KG used in this game is based on the 1991 Heisei Series version which
    was created by 23rd century earthlings, the Futurians.
    
    King Ghidorah's massive size can allow for powerful melee attacks and it can
    breathe fire from all three heads. Its Dodge move involves using its wings to
    push you away and does a small amount of damage. When using its Breath it can
    not only inflict serious damage it can push you a great distance away from
    it.
    
    Its large size means that it will take awhile to bring down with your melee
    attacks. However, it tends to get up into the air sometimes during a battle
    and this is an excellent opportunity to knock it out of the sky and do some
    damage to it while it tries to recover. It large size also makes it easy to
    hit with range weapons so use those if you are upgraded enough to use them
    effectively.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    This is one of the best Kaiju to use in the game. Its large wings can clip
    buildings and allow you to maintain Fury Chains. Although it has a decent
    array of moves it also has a powerful combo that can make short work of
    buildings and Kaiju.
    
    That combo is the Rotation Attack. You have to jump in the air first then use
    Triangle to spin in the air and ram the Kaiju. But you have to time the
    attack correctly or you will just simply land. You have to time the button
    press just as KG begins its jump. Once you get the timing down you will be
    practically unstoppable.
    
    Keep spamming that move against the Kaiju to defeat them quickly. Even
    better, when you get its health down to about a quarter, then use the Triple
    Discharge to finish them off. A very powerful combination, even against the
    Godzillas.
    
    Some additional notes concerning certain enemies.
    
    Fighting Mothra (Larva) is a pain because of its small size and
    aggressiveness. More often or not you will fly over it when you do the
    Rotation Attack and that will lead to a miss - mainly because Mothra tends to
    run towards you as you fly towards it. Its small size makes it hard to hit
    with the Triple Discharge even at close range. Although it is weaker than
    most Kaiju it will take some time to defeat.
    
    When dealing with the Super X craft you should entangle them with your heads
    to keep them from firing and use your melee attacks against them.
    
    When dealing with Gotengo you should use your Dodge after getting stunned by
    its Drill Beam to cause serious damage when it passes you.
    
    When not fighting Kaiju then use the Three-Headed Attack to destroy groups of
    buildings. Although it is a bit of a slow walker it is not that relevant
    because of the reach of its wings and heads.
    
    A lot of these notes also apply to Mecha-King Ghidorah later in the Defenders 
    section.

    This ugly looking pollution based creature has several forms of attack. It
    can throw sewage chunks that can briefly stun you. It does have a more
    powerful beam weapon that can stun you and push you back.
    
    But its most powerful attacks are its up-close melee moves. It has a powerful
    three-hit combo and a Strong Attack move that looks like it is falling on
    you. This four-hit combo can inflict serious damage and it does this a lot,
    especially since it is good at disrupting your attempts at combos.
    
    It is also a fairly strong creature so it will take a beating before you can
    finally put it down. One of the tougher Kaiju to beat in the early stages of
    a run-through.
    
    Use of long distance melee attacks (such as the use of Tail Attacks) and
    Breath are recommended when dealing with Hedorah.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    It is a slow walker but does have a limited jump that spews sewage chunks
    that can hit objects and keep chains going. As noted, it has a powerful
    four-hit combo and it works great against most Kaiju.
    
    When going against the Super X craft you'll have to use your melee attacks
    against the first two then use your Breath against Super X III. Against
    Gotengo, use your Dodge as you are being hit by the Drill Beam. You can do
    serious damage against it as it passes you.
    
    When going up against Destoroyah, wait for it to fly to you then hit it to
    knock it from sky and complete four-hit combo as it tries to recover. Back
    away and wait for it to fly at you again. Use your Dodge when it tries to do
    its combo against you.
    
    When going against both Godzilla and Burning Godzilla, time your first hit as
    it tries to ram then finish off four-hit combo as it tries to recover. Save
    your Dodge for when it tries to fire its Breath.

    Unlike the G-Force MechaGodzillas this one is actually controlled by hostile
    aliens, called Simians, that are bent on taking over the Earth. This
    MechaGodzilla has eye based beam weapons and finger missiles that are fired
    from its hands. It also has a shield that it likes to activate from time to
    time to prevent you from damaging it.
    
    It is also more resilient than the other Kaiju because it is made from Space
    Titanium, a very tough metal. This makes it more dangerous if you face it in
    a 100m Mismatch.
    
    Although it is made of a tough material it is not that hard to deal with
    because it is not very aggressive despite its reasonably powerful four-hit
    combo that it uses from time to time.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    Because it is made of Space Titanium MG becomes a durable melee fighter. In
    addition, because it is a robot it grows in power not health. It has a
    moderate walking speed but no true run. This means that you will tend to lose
    Fury Chains a lot.
    
    Its regular Breath attack is fast and can be used to surprise attacking
    Kaiju. It is also accurate and can be used to pick off Helicopters. Its
    powered Breath attack takes a lot of time to wind up which will allow Kaiju
    to dodge or counter before you can fire it off. The finger missiles can be
    used to whittle off the enemy's health but won't stun it.
    
    But its most powerful weapon is its shield Dodge. When used against a
    Generator you can almost destroy it in one shot. It does little damage
    against a Kaiju but you can still do massive damage to if you manage to push
    it up against a border first. Because it has nowhere to move you can quickly
    tear up its health. This tactic also works against Super X and Super X2 as
    well as against the Godzillas.

      --Terror of MechaGodzilla (1975 - Showa Series)
    
    0============0
    | As an Enemy \
    0========================================>
    
    This version is MG rebuilt by the Simians and is almost the same as the first
    MechaGodzilla but has a couple of new attacks. Cosmetically it has a darker
    gray tone with more pointed fingers and the lettering MG2 on its upper arms.
    You deal with it the same as you do the first. However, it does have the
    Rotating Finger Missiles which can stun you - something the first MG didn't
    have.
    
    By the way, if you are lucky you may be able to knock off its head just like
    in the movie. It will still be able to attack you but it will be close to
    defeat so a couple of hits should be enough to finish it off.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    You use this Kaiju the same as you do MechaGodzilla but there are a couple of
    major differences.
    
    The first is the Rotating Finger Missiles. Unlike the regular ones you can
    stun and push enemies away with it. Although it doesn't do much damage with
    proper and consistent execution you can keep an enemy Kaiju at distance and
    slowly whittle down its health.
    
    The second is that the shield Dodge lasts only a third as long as the first
    MG. This limits your ability to damage the Generator and Kaiju pushed against
    borders. You'll have to rely more on melee and missile attacks.

      --Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989 - Heisei Series)
    
    0============0
    | As an Enemy \
    0========================================>
    
    This is a massive beast that is a combination of a rose and a Godzilla Cell
    collected from the 1984 attack on Tokyo (The Return of Godzilla). It has four
    arms that can create multiple hit melee attacks which makes it hard to get in
    close without suffering substantial damage. It also has an acid based breath
    attack that it uses infrequently.
    
    It has the ability to run which is also another melee attack and can do even
    more damage when combined with its arms. Its Dodge is another run-type move
    than can do a lot of damage and finishes off that move with an arm whip.
    
    Despite this it has some weaknesses.
    
    First, it is a large creature which means that you can easily hit it with
    Breath attacks.
    
    Second, it is weak against Breath attacks which means that it takes fewer
    beams to bring it down. If you are upgraded you mainly just stay at a
    distance and nail it from afar. It is even weak against G-Force and they can
    do some damage to it during the battle.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    Even with its weaknesses it is one of the most powerful Kaiju to play as.
    Although it is a slow walker you can spam its run move to quickly cover
    distance. Its large size and arms can destroy large chunks of Areas with
    ease. Its arms can destroy Helicopters easily. You can even destroy
    Generators from underneath but ramming them is far more effective.
    
    When dealing with Kaiju the best thing to do is to ram them constantly and
    use your Dodge when they try to counter. You can still do damage even if you
    are running towards something else and the Kaiju gets caught in your arms as
    you run. You can do this to all the Godzillas too, even Burning Godzilla.
    
    When going against the Super X craft you can quickly destroy both Super X and
    Super X2 by ramming them. For Super X III you need to wait for it to circle
    low before ramming. Ramming is also effective against Gotengo as your arms
    will flail about and hit the craft.
    
    Because Biollante is so powerful you can get lots of Evolution Energy from a
    run-through. You can get the EE needed for all upgrades and Figures in just
    two run-throughs.

    0============0
    | As an Enemy \
    0========================================>
    
    This Kaiju is considered one of the most annoying enemies in the game. It is
    extremely aggressive and spams its Dodge move whenever it gets the chance. It
    also has a good combo and uses that often while it is recharging its Gauge
    after using its Dodge.
    
    Its aggressiveness hides the fact that it is a weak Kaiju, due to its small
    size, and it uses its constant attacks to compensate. Either use your Breath
    attacks from a distance or go in with your melee attacks and use your Dodge
    when it uses its Dodge.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    It is a moderately slow walker but has a good run feature to allow you to
    maintain Fury Chains. The same things that drive you crazy when going up
    against it also allows you to do some nice attacks against other Kaiju. You
    can do a good four-hit combo using your standard three-hit plus your Strong
    Attack.
    
    But, being that it is a weak Kaiju, going toe-to-toe with melee attacks
    against most Kaiju isn't a good idea unless you are upgraded which will give
    you more opportunities to use your powerful Dodge.
    
    Your Breath weapons aren't terribly good, mainly because of aiming problems.
    You tend to aim in the air a lot regardless of whether or not there are any
    Aircraft nearby. In addition, using your Breath requires a windup which makes
    it easier to be dodged or for your target to counter before you can get it
    off. This also limits its effectiveness.
    
    Because of your size it becomes difficult to hit the Super X craft. You have
    to be patient when dealing with them. You have to use your Breath to get at
    Super X III and you must time them correctly to do damage.
    
    When dealing with Gotengo use your Dodge as it is hitting you with its Drill
    Beam. You will do considerable damage to it as it passes by you. Your combo
    doesn't work against Kiryu - ram it then use your Strong Attack to be
    effective.
    
    When going against Burning Godzilla use your Roll Dodge as it tries to use
    its Breath so you can get at its side or back for easier attacking.

    to gently fly towards you and use its eye beams on occasion. However, once it
    gets close to you, then it becomes more aggressive using a powerful three-hit
    combo to do substantial damage. It also has a powerful Dodge that it uses if
    you try to counter in close quarters.
    
    It does have some weaknesses though. Like with its Larval form it is still
    fairly weak and can be downed quickly with the right attacks. In addition, if
    you hit it with Breath attacks you can knock it away from you thus keeping it
    at distance without it being able to quickly get back to you.

    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    As pointed out, Battra has a very good three-hit combo that you can spam
    frequently against most Kaiju to quickly defeat them. Your Gliding Ram move
    works well against Kaiju and Generators (can take down four rings in one go).
    
    It also has an excellent G-Energy absorption rate. It takes less destruction
    to get energy for Battra than with any other Kaiju. But there's a very good
    reason for that.
    
    That's because Battra has virtually no ground attack. Anything above its
    legs, good. Anything below its legs, yeah, good luck with that. You can hit
    stuff on the ground with the third part of your combo but it is very
    difficult to be consistent with it.
    
    You can use your Breath to hit stuff on the ground too but their scattershot
    nature makes them inconsistent unless you're hitting something large. You can
    be at the right distance and angle to fire at a group of Tanks and still not
    hit any of them. Oh, and Battra tends to fire into the air a lot when you
    want to hit stuff on the ground thus compounding the problem.
    
    And, as also pointed out, you can be knocked around easily if hit by beams
    and missiles knocking you out of position. You are also weaker so you will
    need to be aggressive to end battles quickly.
    
    Because you can't destroy as much as other Kaiju you won't get as much
    Evolution Energy from a run-through. As a result you may have to do as many
    as five run-throughs to get the EE needed for all upgrades and Figures.
    
    As for enemies:
    
    The Climbing Revolution loop move is excellent against the Super X craft and
    Gotengo. Use this move when Gotengo presents its side for best results. You
    can also do damage to Gotengo when it uses its Drill Beam against you.
    
    Against most Kaiju you shouldn't have much in the way of problems. But
    dealing with Mothra (Larva) is a pain in the ass. It is the smallest Kaiju
    you will face as Battra and you can't use your combos against it. Whenever
    you try it will just run underneath you as you finish the loop and thus you
    will miss just about every time.
    
    The only consistent method is to use your Breath. But even that has its
    problems. Mothra's small size means that you might not even hit it when you
    fire. In addition, Mothra, just like Battra (Larva), is also aggressive. Many
    times, when you get into range, it may use either its Thread attack or Dodge
    to keep you from hitting it.
    
    These factors will make this into a long and frustrating battle.
    
    Anguirus also sits low but, thankfully, can also be defeated with your combo.
    The Sea levels also present a problem in that the Subs sit low in the water.
    But you can destroy them easily with your Breath.
    
    When dealing with large Kaiju such as Destoroyah and Burning Godzilla you
    should wait for it to start attacking then dodge left or right to get at
    either its side or back for easier attacking. This is especially necessary
    against BG since it can time its attacks better to prevent you from doing
    your combo.

      --Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (1994 - Heisei Series)
    
    0============0
    | As an Enemy \
    0========================================>
    
    SpaceGodzilla is a powerful crystalline based lifeform. It was formed in a
    black hole from Godzilla Cells that were brought into space by Mothra at the
    end of Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992 - Heisei Series).
    
    It can fly and can bring up a ring of giant crystals that it can use as
    energy for some of its beam attacks. Yet it isn't hard to defeat, mainly
    because of its lack of apparent aggressiveness and slow melee attacks. Just
    be aggressive with your own attacks and you can take it down without much
    problem.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    It is a very slow walker but you can fly with great speed. You will be doing
    that quite a bit against most Kaiju. And you will also be able to destroy
    Helicopters with ease while flying.
    
    Although you have a decent combo your attacks are slow which give the enemy
    Kaiju plenty of time to stop your attacks and counter with their own (or
    simply get out of the way). However, you can spam your Tail Smash for awhile
    to whittle down the enemy's health.
    
    The Crystal Field move will allow you an infinite Gauge meter for a short
    time (until the crystals disappear). This will give you time to do three
    regular Breath or two powered Breath attacks. In addition, while you are
    bringing up the crystals, you are invincible and serves as another Dodge
    move.
    
    A good strategy is to fly away from a Kaiju, land at distance, bring up some
    crystals, and fire off two powered Breaths as the enemy approaches then fly
    off and repeat. There are two problems to note though.
    
    The first is that if you are hit by an enemy Breath attack you may be pushed
    out of the circle. If this happens then you lose the infinite Gauge and you
    must fly away to try again. This happens most with Burning Godzilla as it is
    cheap with its attacks and tends to use its Fire Breath frequently.
    
    Second, your Breath doesn't lock on like most other Breath attacks and thus
    can be dodged easily. Also the attack goes straight ahead and doesn't angle
    towards the ground if you want to hit a Tank.
    
    One other thing about the Crystal Field. It is excellent against Generators.
    Put yourself at the right distance to one and activate the Field. Most times
    a crystal will spawn under it and can often destroy it immediately (if not
    then it will come close).
    
    As for enemies:
    
    Like SpaceGodzilla Super MechaGodzilla can also fly and thus makes it hard to
    hit with powered Breath attacks, especially since your attacks are slow to
    begin with. However, a combination of your Tail Smash and standard Breath
    work well as a combo.
    
    Against Burning Godzilla it is near suicide to just go toe-to-toe with melee
    attacks because you are so slow. Your best bet is to fly around and use your
    Crystal Field to nail it from a distance. This becomes more problematic when
    you are not upgraded and this drags out the battle.

    0========================================>
    
    This is a massive creature that is a mutant created from the Oxygen Destroyer
    used against the first G in 1954. Its powers are derived from the concepts of
    micro-oxygen.
    
    Because of its size it is also aggressive and tends to attack quickly and
    often. It flies to you then uses a quick three-hit standard combo plus a tail
    whip to inflict substantial damage. Then it repeats until you manage to get
    away from it. If you try to counter then it uses its powerful Dodge move to
    stop you.
    
    But there is a simple method to dealing with it.
    
    It often starts its attack by flying to you. As it does so then use one of
    your attacks to knock it from the air and then do a series of quick attacks
    as it tries to recover then back away before it can start its combo. Repeat
    when it flies towards you again. If you have enough upgrades then just use
    your Breath against it from a distance.
    
    One other thing: when it appears you have one chance to defeat it. If you
    fail then it will be replaced by another Kaiju when you Continue. If you wish
    to go against it again then go back to the Main Menu and Continue Progress.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    Although those combos look nasty they are not as easy to pull off as you
    might think. The moves require a little bit of a windup and that allows other
    Kaiju to interrupt you. In addition, your melee attacks are actually distance
    attacks so you must keep the enemy at a certain distance to be most
    effective. Your combo is less effective if the other Kaiju is in your face.
    
    Even though your Breath weapon is powerful it is also very narrow. You have
    to hit an enemy square on for best results. It doesn't take much from a Kaiju
    to move out of the way and make you miss.
    
    The slow nature of your melee attacks make it difficult to hit the Super X
    craft. However, the Tail Whip attack tends to be most effective against them.
    
    When going against Gotengo you're not going to have much luck using your
    melee attacks on it. You should use your Breath when facing it head-on or on
    the side. Your Dodge move can also do some damage when being hit by its Drill
    Beam.
    
    When going against Burning Godzilla use your three-hit combo then follow with
    the Flying Tackle and repeat. This works pretty well most of the time.
    
    Although you won't have much trouble gaining enough Evolution Energy you will
    probably spend a lot of time playing as Destoroyah because it appears
    infrequently in the wild and you need to get a lot of Cells for all Kaiju
    upgrades.

    Although this Kaiju first appeared in the '70s this game uses the more
    awesome 2004 version. In addition to its chainsaw hands it also has a flying
    blade weapon that can hit and stun you multiple times. It also has a powerful
    charge attack that includes its chainsaws.
    
    Since it uses its charge attack often it is also your opening to attack.
    Dodge Gigan as it comes towards you and attack it from the back or side. If
    you are upgraded enough then just keep it a distance and pick it off with
    your Breath attacks.

    This is the fastest walker of all the Kaiju and this helps to maintain
    Chains. Your kick move is also good at destroying buildings and helps to
    create long Fury Chains.
    
    Although you have a pretty decent combo at your disposal your most powerful
    attack is the Surging Wave Blooded Slicer move. It is also the most powerful
    range attack of any Kaiju. It unleashes two sawblades that go flying towards
    your target and attacks multiple times. It can easily take off close to half
    the health of an affected Kaiju in one try.
    
    Of course, it also has some drawbacks.
    
    It takes a very long time to unleash which gives plenty of time for an enemy
    Kaiju to counter. You will need to be far from the enemy in order to safely
    unleash it. But you can't be too far either or the blades will go into the
    ground. If you happen to be too close to the enemy when you let it go you may
    find yourself being damaged by your own weapon, possibly even defeated.
    
    When dealing with the Super X craft it is best to use your kick move then use
    your Gigarume Cluster when you have enough of a charge. One benefit to the
    Cluster is that it can follow them making them easy to hit. Your Slicer also
    works well against Gotengo as the blades can follow it wherever it is at in
    the Area and does substantial damage.
    
    When fighting Burning Godzilla you will have to use your Tackle to keep
    distant from it so you can properly use your Slicer. BG tends to run often so
    you will have to run constantly to maintain distance while you wait to get
    enough charge. Since your Tackle takes a few seconds to start this also gives
    BG ample opportunity to nail you with its Fire Breath thus damaging you and
    may even prevent you from going anywhere.
    
    But it is no match for the Slicer once you successfully get it off. However,
    it is important to point out that the blades can go after Super X III instead
    of BG thus prolonging the battle. This is especially annoying if you haven't
    been upgraded.
    
    Despite its awesome power you don't seem to get much in the way of Evolution
    Energy. You may have to play up to five times to get the EE for upgrades and
    Figures.

    0============0
    | As an Enemy \
    0========================================>
    
    This is the new American Godzilla and it is quite a massive beast. In
    addition to its large size, which allows for powerful melee attacks, it also
    has its own Atomic Breath weapon which has long distance capability.
    
    Its main mode of attack is to use its standard three-hit combo followed by
    its Tackle move which can inflict even more damage. On top of that, after
    finishing with this combo, it also Roars to give it protection against your
    counterattack.
    
    The good news is that it isn't extremely aggressive. It tends to stay back
    sometimes and scope you out before coming closer to either use its Breath or
    do its combo. You can use this to your advantage to either use your own
    Breath or long range melee attacks to keep it off balance.
    
    0==============0
    | As an Invader \
    0========================================>
    
    It is already at 100m but cannot grow any larger thus you need to gain power
    instead. Its height can destroy low flying Aircraft. Regardless of power its
    large size can give it a fighting chance in 100m Mismatches. In addition, it
    has a moderate walk speed but its size can cover ground quickly.
    
    Your standard three-hit combo plus your Strong Attack is pretty effective
    against most Kaiju. Although your Breath has long range it is not that
    powerful.
    
    One major advantage to it is that it has great Gauge recharge capabilities.
    Although the Gauge recharges at the same rate as the other Kaiju it can
    instantly be refilled by a single enemy missile or Breath attack. This allows
    you to use your Breath and Dodge attacks far more frequently regardless of
    upgrades.
    
    One problem with G is that it has trouble knocking down small buildings
    despite its large size. You may have to use your Tackle move to destroy them.
    In addition, you may sometimes glance off a building instead of running
    through it which becomes annoying when you are trying to increase your Fury
    Chain.
    
    When going against Biollante you may find that your large size keeps
    Biollante's arm attacks from knocking you back thus making it easier to use
    your combos against it.
    
    When going against Gotengo you can use your Breath just before it uses its
    Drill Beam when it runs at you. This will allow you to do some consistent
    damage to it.

    Not all Kaiju are bad. There are some that are beneficial to mankind.
    However, it doesn't make sense to have them go and destroy cities. So the
    rules for the following Kaiju are different from the Invaders.
    
    Basically your goal is to defend the Area from an enemy Kaiju. There is a
    statistic called the Defense Rate. When you begin the battle it will be at
    100%. If any building gets destroyed then the Rate will go down. If some of
    the defending G-Force units are destroyed this will also cause the Rate to go
    down.
    
    If any Generator gets destroyed then the Rate will go down significantly. So
    it is important that they don't get destroyed. If your Rate goes down below
    50% then the Stage is lost and you will have to redo it. It is also important
    to note that you should avoid the Sea Stages (Area 13 and 14) as the Subs can
    be easily destroyed which will either drag down your overall score or cause
    you to lose the Stage.
    
    Like with the Invaders you have to go through a ten Stage run-through to get
    to the Final Stage. All Defenders will face Burning Godzilla at the Final
    Stage. All Defenders will face Godzilla (2014) and Godzilla at Stages 8 and 9
    respectively. You'll face a random mix of Kaiju through the first seven
    Stages regardless of what path you take.
    
    It is important to note that you will not face off against another Defender -
    only against Invaders. You won't have to go up against Super X craft either.
    There are also no Bonus Conditions when playing as a Defender.
    
    Because of how the rules are you can't get any G-Energy for Growth / Power.
    Instead your Growth is tied to your Defense Rate. The better your Rate is at
    the end of a Stage, the more you grow in size and power. Like with the
    Invaders you will need to be at least 100m in size to progress to the Final
    Stage.
    
    And, like with the Invaders, you will get a Silver Star if your run ends at
    Stage 9 and a Gold Star if you finish the Final Stage.
    
    You can also get into 100m Mismatches with other Kaiju. When this happens
    just get quickly beaten so you can get a normal sized monster (unless you're
    Mothra (either form) as you can more easily deal with Mismatches).
    
    One interesting thing to note when you play as a Defender - an Invading Kaiju
    can sometimes get distracted during the battle and focus on either a
    Generator or G-Force. Take advantage when this happens by getting behind the
    Kaiju and unleashing your attacks on its backside.
    
    On occasion you may encounter SpaceGodzilla. It is important to keep it away
    from the Generators because it likes to use the Crystal Field a lot and that
    can lead to easy destruction of Generators.
    
    Because you are only focused on defeating Kaiju the run-throughs for
    Defenders are much shorter. In addition, this is similar to playing King of
    Kaiju Mode except you need to keep from destroying stuff.

    Mothra is one of the most popular Kaiju other than G and comes in two forms:
    Larva and Adult.
    
    Outside of Battra (Larva) this is one of the harder Kaiju to go against. Just
    like Battra it is very aggressive and tends to ram and use its Tumble Frenzy
    Dodge move often. If you jump or fly against it it may use its Thread attack
    to knock you out of the sky.
    
    Its small size also makes it aggravating to certain Kaiju. As already pointed
    out with Battra (Adult) it can run under flying attacks and it is too small
    to be grabbed easily. Its small size also makes it hard to hit with certain
    beam weapons.
    
    But its small size also works against it in that it is weaker than most
    Kaiju. A series of solid attacks can defeat it quickly if it decides not to
    counterattack.
    
    0===============0
    | As an Defender \
    0========================================>
    
    Of course, all the things that make it a pain going against it also make it
    pretty advantageous to you when you actually play it. Against most Kaiju use
    your Regular and Strong Attacks to create a solid three-hit combo. If the
    other Kaiju decides to counterattack then use the Tumble Frenzy to stop it.
    
    If you get into a 100m Mismatch your small size may give you an advantage
    depending on the Kaiju you face. Most of the enemy Kaiju's attacks will
    simply go over you and allows you to go right at its ankles. Just keep
    attacking its ankles by using your dash move and Regular Attacks until it
    goes down.
    
    When going against Battra (Adult) you'll find that, just as it has a hard
    time hitting you, you will also have a hard time hitting it. I found that the
    Jump Bite Attack works well against it.
    
    Going against Burning Godzilla requires a slightly different tactic. It can
    stop you from doing your standard three-hit combo but using the Tail Attack
    plus the Jump Bite tends to work well. Use your Tumble Frenzy when it tries
    to attack you.
    
    It is important to note that its Fire Breath can make short work of you if
    you're not careful. When it starts to use it then quickly roll out of the
    way. Also try to roll behind it to get at its backside for easier attacking.

    Mothra's Adult form appears to be less aggressive than its Larval form. It
    mainly tends to use its Rotating Feather Attack and Ram move against you. As
    with most Kaiju it uses its Dodge move when you start to get into a rhythm
    while attacking it.
    
    Like with its Larval form it is also a weak Kaiju but stronger than its other
    form. In addition, since it is larger, it is also easier to hit with long
    range attacks. Like with Battra (Adult) you can knock it back pretty far away
    from you if you nail it with a Breath attack.
    
    Hitting it with a series of melee attacks can also knock it away from you and
    allows you to follow up with a Breath attack.
    
    0===============0
    | As an Defender \
    0========================================>
    
    When playing as Mothra it is one of the most powerful Kaiju to use in the
    entire game. Use your two-hit Normal Attack combo then follow it up with the
    Gliding Ram attack to create a powerful three-hit combo that is very
    effective against most Kaiju - including Destoroyah and Burning Godzilla.
    
    This is also effective in 100m Mismatches. However, you will need to let the
    other Kaiju attack so you can quickly sidestep it and get at either its side
    or back. Once you are in position then use the combo to quickly defeat it.
    
    But a 100m Mismatch against King Ghidorah will more than likely lead to
    defeat. It has the means to consistently counterattack to prevent you from
    using the combo too much which will drag out the battle. This in turn may
    lead to having enough of the Area destroyed to lose the Stage.
    
    When going up against Gigan you may have to use your Dodge move first to set
    up the combo.
    
    In Stage 9, Area 24 you may also face Battra in addition to Godzilla. This is
    inspired by the three-way battle in the film Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992 -
    Heisei Series).
    
    One other interesting thing to note - Destoroyah tends to appear frequently
    when playing as Mothra. This is a good way, other than playing as Destoroyah
    itself, to get more Destoroyah Cells.

    This Kaiju is a cult favorite in the G-Universe. It is a robot that has
    learned to program itself to make it larger so it can fight other Kaiju.
    Unlike the other creatures it has no beam attacks - it must rely entirely on
    melee attacks. Although it has some decent power moves it is easy to defeat.
    In all the hours I've spent with the game (all versions) I've never lost to
    it.
    
    Best thing to do is nail it from afar with your Breath attacks (depending on
    your chosen Kaiju and upgrades) but you can still beat it into submission
    without too much trouble.
    
    0===============0
    | As an Defender \
    0========================================>
    
    Jet-Jaguar is a durable melee fighter - it has to be because of its lack of
    beam weapons. But going toe-to-toe is dangerous against most Kaiju so it is
    best to try to get behind it so you can beat it up without getting damaged in
    return.
    
    The Moon Somersault is a good way to get behind a Kaiju so you can beat it up
    from behind. However, if you are dealing with a large Kaiju, you may find
    that you will land right in front of it instead which often leads to a
    counterattack.
    
    Although tricky to execute Dashing plus sidestepping is a good way to evade
    attacks and get behind Kaiju, especially large ones. One of JJ's strengths is
    its speed and agility.
    
    Unfortunately, a major weakness of JJ is stun recovery. It takes a long time
    to recover from being stunned by an attack and that often leads to continued
    pounding from an enemy, especially from Battra (Larva).
    
    JJ's Dodge move can do serious damage to a Kaiju. However, because you are
    going in circles, this makes control difficult and can often lead to missing
    Kaiju. This move works best when you have the Kaiju pinned up against a
    border.
    
    The Somersault move is misnamed for some reason. Whenever you execute it JJ
    just stands there and throws out a thumbs-up sign. But, if you connect with
    it, you can do some damage to an enemy.

      --Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991 - Heisei Series)
    
    0============0
    | As an Enemy \
    0========================================>
    
    When King Ghidorah is defeated by Godzilla during the second half of the 1991
    movie one of the Futurians goes forward in time to rebuild its damaged and
    comatose body into the cybernetic Mecha-King Ghidorah and takes it back to
    1991 to do battle with Godzilla. As such it is considered a "good guy" Kaiju
    and thus classified as a Defender.
    
    Mecha-King Ghidorah behaves the same and with pretty much the same moveset as
    King Ghidorah. The only difference I note is that its Breath weapons are more
    powerful.
    
    0===============0
    | As an Defender \
    0========================================>
    
    Since it has the same moveset as regular King Ghidorah you can use the
    powerful Rotation Attack and Triple Tornado combination to finish off Kaiju
    quickly. However, those big wings that make for wonderful destruction as King
    Ghidorah become a liability because you are now a Defender.
    
    Best thing to do is just go right after the Kaiju and end the Stage quickly
    before you can do a lot of damage. This will also give you good practice with
    it before using it for King of Kaiju Mode.
    
    You may notice that Godzilla always appears in Area 12. This is inspired by
    the final battle in the 1991 film.

    0============0
    | As an Enemy \
    0========================================>
    
    This massive construct was built using the remains of Mecha-King Ghidorah,
    built with 23rd century technology, which fought G near the end of Godzilla
    vs. King Ghidorah. This particular machine is actually the combination of
    two constructs: MechaGodzilla and Garuda. Garuda was the first of the two and
    was designed as a flying craft with two massive beam cannons.
    
    When Garuda was decommissioned the designer managed to convince one of the
    designers of MechaGodzilla to allow Garuda to be connected to it and use
    Garuda's beam cannons as over the shoulder weapons. This combination would
    create Super MechaGodzilla.
    
    SMG has multiple weapons such as the over-the-shoulder Hyper Maser Beam
    Cannon, G-Crusher, and the Plasma Cannon. However, its favorite weapon by far
    is the Mega Buster which is fired from its mouth. This is a powerful weapon
    and can do serious damage.
    
    When you play as Godzilla it uses the Mega Buster almost exclusively and
    frequently. This is very annoying because it has other attacks but chooses
    not to use them. However, when you play as other Kaiju, it seems to mix up
    its attacks a bit more.
    
    It also has the ability to fly which will make it hard to get a bead on it
    for attacking and, worse, it makes it hard to get away from when you need to
    get away from it to recover from damage.
    
    SMG is pretty durable due to it having an artificial diamond coating which
    absorbs most Breath weapons. This means that you're not going to do a lot of
    damage to it using your Breath. But you'll do a little damage to it at least.
    
    It does have a powerful two-hit combo that can do serious damage. However, it
    is slow so you can use that to your advantage and interrupt its attacks with
    your own combos.
    
    0===============0
    | As an Defender \
    0========================================>
    
    The diamond coating allows great resistance to Breath weapons to the point
    that they have no effect on SMG. The only exception is Burning Godzilla's
    Fire Breath.
    
    As pointed out, SMG's two-hit combo is slow but there is an easy way to
    defeat most, if not all, Kaiju and that is by using the G-Crusher almost
    exclusively. Surprisingly this works pretty well. You have to be at a certain
    distance for it to be effective and the camera is going to be behind you
    which will make it hard to gauge distance. To address this, angle the camera
    slightly so you can see more of where the G-Crusher missiles go.
    
    Use the D-Pad instead of the Left Analog Stick to consistently execute the
    attack. Once you get the hang of it you'll be almost unstoppable. Follow up a
    G-Crusher attack with a Mega Buster blast to add more damage when the Gauge
    is full enough.
    
    All three Godzillas tend to ram you when they get close enough. You can
    execute the G-Crusher quick enough to nail them just before they can get to
    you. Since they do this often this makes them easy to defeat.
    
    It is important to point out that you should limit the use of your Dodge move
    as much as possible. This is because it spins around in the air while firing
    its cannons. This can lead to building and Generator damage and/or
    destruction depending on location.
    
    In Stage 9, Area 24 you may also face Rodan in addition to Godzilla. This is
    inspired by the three-way battle in the film Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla (1993
    - Heisei Series).

    | As an Enemy \
    0========================================>
    
    This particular construct is a cyborg built around the bones of the first
    Godzilla killed in 1954. MFS-3 is shorthand for (Multipurpose Fighting System
    Type-3) but is often called Kiryu. It is very agile and has multiple weapons.
    
    Kiryu has the Type-0 Rail Gun beam cannon mounted on the wrists and shoulder
    mounted missile Launchers which it uses a lot. It also has the mouth fired
    Type-99 Double Maser Cannon which it can sometimes use.
    
    It also has small jets on its limbs which will allow it to move quickly away
    from you if it senses that you are going to fire your Breath on it and get
    back up quickly from a successful takedown. It also has powerful melee
    attacks which includes the Spiral Claw hand drill attack. It also has its
    chest mounted Hyper Maser Cannon weapon.
    
    Although it has its multiple beam and rocket weapons it prefers to get up
    close and use its melee attacks against you. Using your own melee attacks
    works well against it, especially if you are larger than it by the time you
    get to Stage 9. Although it is somewhat resistant to beam attacks it does not
    have nowhere the same level of resistance as SMG. So use of Breath weapons
    will have more effect against it than SMG.
    
    0===============0
    | As an Defender \
    0========================================>
    
    Being as it is a cyborg Kiryu is a durable melee fighter and able to go
    toe-to-toe with most Kaiju. Its two-hit combo plus the Spiral Claw as a
    follow up is effective. The Multi-Hit Spiral Claw is very effective when it
    is timed correctly. This should be used in the early Stages against the
    weaker Kaiju.
    
    The best weapon by far is its Hyper Maser Cannon. It can do massive damage
    when properly executed. You should upgrade this as quickly as possible to be
    more effective when doing multiple run-throughs. Unfortunately, the Maser can
    be dodged when in use and can lead to a miss.
    
    When dealing with Burning Godzilla you should use the Hyper Maser Cannon
    exclusively and keep it at a distance. However, until you can fully upgrade
    the Cannon to more quickly deal with it you will need to use your melee
    attacks. One good thing to use is the Sideways Hover Dash which will allow
    you to dodge its Fire Breath and put you in position to attack it from the
    side or back for easier fighting.
    
    Just like with SMG you should limit the use of your Dodge move as much as
    possible. This is because it spins around in the air while firing its cannons
    and missiles. This can lead to building and Generator damage and/or
    destruction depending on location.

    When you first play through God of Destruction Mode you will have just one
    part of your Temperature Gauge which recharges very slowly. To have better
    success against the harder parts of the game (including King of Kaiju and VS
    Modes) you need to upgrade your chosen Kaiju.
    
    Evolution Mode is where you can upgrade your Kaijus. As noted earlier, you
    need to defeat other Kaijus in God of Destruction and King of Kaiju Modes to
    get Parts for upgrading. The game will randomly give you one to three Parts
    when you defeat a Kaiju. You will most certainly get three Parts when you
    defeat a Kaiju large than you.
    
    When you see the Kaiju list for the first time you will notice that most of
    them are not available. They will become available as you defeat them in God
    of Destruction Mode. It should be pointed out that you cannot upgrade a Kaiju
    until you use one of its Parts to unlock its Upgrade Tree.
    
    The remaining Parts are placed into a pool that will allow you to use them to
    upgrade all of the Kaijus. However, even if you have all the Parts to upgrade
    a given Kaiju, you must also have Evolution Energy (EE). In order to get this
    energy you must play as that Kaiju. It usually takes an average of three
    run-throughs as that Kaiju to get enough Energy to acquire all of the
    upgrades.
    
    How much EE you get is determined on how much destruction you do (how many
    100% Destruction areas you get), how many G-Force units you destroy, how far
    you get, and maybe more if you defeat any Kaiju in a 100m Mismatch. Some
    Kaiju can get more than others and thus reduce the number of times you have
    to play as them. The most EE any Kaiju can have is 9,999.
    
    In addition to EE you will also get additional Parts for your chosen Kaiju by
    completing a run-through. If you got a Silver Star then you should get two
    Parts and for a Gold Star you should get three. As Godzilla you should get
    one Part if your run ends at Stage 7, two if it ends at Stage 9, and three if
    you finish the Final Stage.
    
    Then there is also the matter of Diorama Figures. Unlike the PS3 version you
    need to purchase the Figures here in Evolution Mode. With the exception of
    Godzilla (and Godzilla (1964)) each Kaiju has ten Figures. Each Figure starts
    at 100 EE and increases by ten EE as you acquire the next Figure. Each Figure
    also costs one Kaiju Part in addition to the EE.
    
    All moves, powers, and Figures are chained. This means that you cannot get
    the next power, move, or Figure until you acquire the previous one. This is
    different in the PS3 version as you could get the moves in any order (the
    Gauge powers were chained though).
    
    Listed below are all of the Kaiju and their Energy and Cell requirements.
    There are two parts to the Energy column. The first is the amount needed for
    just upgrades, the second is for all upgrades and Figures.
    
    There are three parts to the Cell column. The first is the number of the
    Kaiju parts needed for its own upgrades and Figures, the second is for the
    number of Parts needed for all Kaiju upgrades, the last, in parenthesis, is
    the Parts needed for all Kaiju upgrades plus Godzilla (1964).

    When you look over the Kaiju list you can go over how many Parts and how much
    EE each one has by using the Switch Display feature. When you first see the
    list you will see each Kaiju's evolution. Pressing the Square Button once
    will switch to the Parts and the next press will switch the the EE. One more
    press will switch back to Evolution Level.
    
    There are three tiers of Upgrades:
    
      >>Charge Upgrade
        **************
          This gradually increases the speed of your Gauge recharge.
    
      >>Gauge Upgrade
        *************
          This adds additional sections your Gauge.
    
      >>Moves Upgrade
        *************
          This only applies to Godzilla, Burning Godzilla, and Godzilla (1964). 
          This adds additional melee moves to make them more powerful.
    
    As you upgrade you will also increase your Evolution level which is displayed
    at the top of the screen. When you acquire all of the upgrades then you
    will max out the Evolution of that Kaiju.
    
    You can also upgrade during a run-through. After completing an Area then exit
    to the Main Menu between Stages. When you re-enter Evolution Mode you will be
    warned that any upgrades made at this point will *NOT* carry over into the
    current run-through - only in a new one.
    
    This is helpful in instances where you are playing as a Kaiju you don't like
    and just want to get just enough EE to finish acquiring Upgrades and Figures
    then abandon the run-through to play as another Kaiju.
    
    Of course it is going to take you a long time to upgrade all of the Kaiju. My
    recommendation is to focus on the slow and weaker Kaiju first then on the
    hard to spawn ones. Anguirus, SpaceGodzilla, and Battra (Adult) are the ones
    I recommend focusing on first to start. Then do Mecha-King Ghidorah,
    Jet-Jaguar, and Destoroyah - especially Destoroyah because it is kind of a
    rare spawner at the start.
    
    The most powerful ones you should save for last. Ones like King Ghidorah,
    Godzilla (2014), Gigan, Biollante, and Burning Godzilla. However, you should
    do one run of Burning Godzilla early so you can unlock Destoroyah (unless you
    do it as another Kaiju first).
    
    Listed below are all of the upgrades for all Kaiju:

    Acquiring everything in Evolution Mode should earn you the following
    Trophies:
    
      >>Kaiju Sighting
        **************
          You get this when you enter Evolution Mode after going through your 
          first run-through.
    
      >>Indication of Evolution
        ***********************
          Acquire your first upgrade.
    
      >>Showa Demon
        ***********
          Acquire both the Jump Attack and Back Charge moves for Godzilla. These 
          are the two Showa-based skills featured in the older films. The Back 
          Charge is based off of the "Jet Breath" move featured in the film 
          Godzilla vs. Hedorah. The Jump Attack is the so-called "Godzilla 
          Dance" first seen in the film Invasion of Astro-Monster.
    
      >>Killer Breath
        *************
          Acquire all three Breath types for Godzilla (Spiral, Vapor, Ring).
    
      >>Perfect Being
        *************
          Acquire all upgrades for Godzilla.
    
      >>Kaiju Collector
        ***************
          Unlock all of the Kaiju in Evolution Mode.
    
      >>Figure Collector
        ****************
          Purchase all of the Kaiju Figures for Diorama Mode.

    King of Kaiju Mode is where you do a six stage "boss rush" game where you try
    to defeat each enemy as fast as possible. This is just like playing as a
    Defending Kaiju except that you can play as any Kaiju and you don't have to
    worry about sparing the city.
    
    The more you upgrade your chosen Kaiju, the more powerful you will become and
    the faster you can go through the stages. Both you and the enemy will be at
    the same size. Although you can get G-Energy from the buildings you destroy
    you won't be able to grow much at all. You will also get one Kaiju Part plus
    one randomly chosen from any of the other Kaiju you defeated in your run.
    
    Personally, I wouldn't recommend even touching this mode until you have
    unlocked Mecha-King Ghidorah and fully upgraded it first. The reason for
    using this Kaiju is that it is by far the best one to use in this Mode. It
    has the powerful Rotation Attack and Triple Tornado attacks that can make
    short work of most Kaiju.
    
    By waiting until you have Mecha-King Ghidorah and all upgrades before coming
    here you can get all five King of Kaiju related Trophies in one go. In
    addition, you should be pretty good with Mecha-King Ghidorah at this point so
    you can get through enemies quickly. You should be able to finish at around
    five minutes on your first try which should get you all of the Trophies one
    after the other.
    
    Below the Kaiju list is the Ranking option which will allow you to compare
    your time with other players around the world. There are players that have
    managed to get their time down to under 2:40. It shouldn't surprise you that
    90% of the Kaijus used in the top 100 list is Mecha-King Ghidorah.
    
    If you want to get yourself into the top 100 using Mecha-King Ghidorah there
    are some things to note.
    
    First and foremost, if you encounter Mothra (Larva) at any time, go back to
    the Main Menu and start over. Although you can defeat it it simply takes a
    long time to do and easily prevents you from having a sub-four or even a
    sub-five minute time. Since you need to be under 3:30 just to crack the top
    100 you can forget that too.
    
    It has a tendency to run under your Rotation Attack a lot which leads to a
    miss and wasted time as you now have to turn around. Its small size also
    limits the effectiveness of the Triple Tornado because even that has trouble
    hitting something that small. And, of course, it also uses its Tumble Frenzy
    a lot which knocks you out of the sky and wastes more time.
    
    So, yeah, Mothra (Larva) is a royal pain in the ass and shouldn't be messed
    with. Just avoid at all costs.
    
    Biollante is also a bad one. It has its long arms that can knock you out of
    the sky if you time things wrong. Worse, it has its Tentacle Dance dodge that
    can also knock you out of the sky, knock you back, and wastes time as it
    lasts for awhile.
    
    It also uses its Charge a bit too and that also wastes time as you get
    knocked back and unable to use your attacks until Biollante is finished. Once
    you are fully upgraded then you can just nail it from a distance with the
    Triple Tornado since its large size makes it hard to miss.
    
    Destoroyah is also another pain to deal with. Its three-hit combo will
    prevent you from doing any kind of attacks and it does this a lot. If it
    stops attacking for a bit then you can start using the Rotation Attack
    against it but it also tends to use its Omnidirectional Slicer if you start
    to get into some sort of rhythm.

    You will notice that there doesn't seem to be a command to snap a picture. In
    order to make a snapshot you need to use the PS4's Share feature. Press the
    Share Button to go into the Share Menu. Right beneath where it says to Upload
    Screenshot is the Save Screenshot command. This is how you take the picture
    to be saved. The Watermark will automatically be placed in the lower right
    corner of the picture.

    The final mode that the game has is the Kaiju Guide. Here you can look over
    the bios of all the Kaiju that is owned by Toho Studios. When you are first
    allowed to look over the list only a handful of Kaiju are available to look
    at. You will also get the {Godzilla Fan} Trophy in the process.
    
    You need to defeat all of the Kaiju and get all 100 Data Points in God of
    Destruction Mode to reveal the entire list and acquire the {Godzilla Expert}
    Trophy. As for the {Crazy for Godzilla} Trophy, start with the first one and
    use the R1 Button to quickly go through the list. Should take about a minute.

    When Toho Studios first released Gojira in 1954 they had no idea they were
    launching a soon-to-be major film icon that would entertain and thrill
    audiences around the world for over 60 years. In this section I will go over
    the films and some of the games that G has appeared in as well as featured
    Japanese landmarks.

    In this chapter I briefly go over all of the films, including the American
    versions, that features the world's most popular Kaiju. I list the alternate
    titles of each film along with year released, DVD/Blu-Ray releases, and
    notes.

    Although the first couple of films were serious they would later begin to
    lighten up and eventually become child friendly campy affairs by the
    seventies. Even so, they are still a lot of fun to watch regardless of
    quality and age.

      >>Gojira
        ******
          Year: 1954
          DVD: Yes (also part of The Criterion Collection)
          Blu-Ray: Yes (also part of The Criterion Collection)
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: The one that started it all. Although the effects are very dated 
                 the film remains one of the most powerful Japanese films 
                 released. The movie came out nine years after the Hiroshima and 
                 Nagasaki atomic bomb attacks that ended World War II so it was 
                 still fresh in the minds of the public.
    
                 G represented the dangers of nuclear testing and the choir that 
                 played after its attack on Tokyo is very haunting and moving. 
                 When the film came to America it was renamed Godzilla and had 
                 additional scenes with actor Raymond Burr added to make it 
                 easier for audiences to understand.
    
      >>Godzilla's Counterattack
        ************************
          AKA: Gigantis, the Fire Monster
               Godzilla Raids Again
          Year: 1955
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: No
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This is the first of many sequels to Gojira. It also introduced 
                 G's first rival (and later friend), Anguirus, and has some 
                 decent Kaiju action. However, for the most part, this film is 
                 kind of boring because of the poorly executed human scenes.
    
                 One interesting bit of trivia about the film. When it reached 
                 America it needed to be dubbed. One of the people who helped dub 
                 it was George Takei who would later achieve greater fame as 
                 Hikaru Sulu in the Star Trek television show and would become an 
                 icon in his own right.
    
      >>King Kong vs. Godzilla
        **********************
          Year: 1962
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Co-produced in conjunction with Universal Studios this film 
                 brings the giant American gorilla and the Japanese Kaiju 
                 together in the same film. Has plenty of good action and the 
                 story isn't too bad either.
    
                 My only gripe with this title is that the official American 
                 releases are dubbed only (I prefer to watch my G-Films in 
                 Japanese with English subtitles).
    
      >>Mothra vs. Godzilla
        *******************
          AKA: Godzilla vs. the Thing
          Year: 1964
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: No
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Mothra had its own film in 1961 and was successful enough to 
                 warrant an appearance in a G-Film. A large egg is washed ashore 
                 and acquired by people who want to turn it into a tourist 
                 attraction. Godzilla appears and heads towards an eventual 
                 showdown with the giant insect.
    
      >>Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster
        **********************************
          Year: 1964
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: No
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Released in the same year as the previous film this title 
                 features Godzilla, Mothra, and Rodan who appeared in its own 
                 film in 1956. This film also introduces one of the most popular 
                 villains in the G universe, King Ghidorah. The other Kaiju must 
                 join forces to stop Ghidorah's rampage.
    
                 While this is going on a princess from another country manages 
                 to escape an assassination attempt. She later reappears but is 
                 possessed by an alien force who warns of Ghidorah's approach.
    
                 Those who tried to kill her before pursue her and her protector 
                 as they try to unravel the mystery of Ghidorah and the force 
                 that possesses her. One of my personal favorites from the Showa 
                 series.
    
      >>Invasion of Astro-Monster
        *************************
          AKA: Godzilla vs. Monster Zero
          Year: 1965
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: No
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Astronauts from Earth land on a large asteroid and are 
                 approached by aliens who need both Godzilla and Rodan to fight 
                 off a large Kaiju called Monster Zero who is later revealed to 
                 be King Ghidorah. After King Ghidorah is run off then the aliens 
                 reveal their true intentions: world domination.
    
                 At this point the Earthlings must find a way to fight them off 
                 and with a quirky invention that may hold the answer to Earth's 
                 survival. This film introduces the viewer to the "Godzilla 
                 Dance" which is used in the game.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. Ebirah
        *******************
          AKA: Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster
          Year: 1966
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: A young man steals a boat in an attempt to find his brother. 
                 Both himself and his unwitting passengers are eventually caught 
                 up in a storm and find themselves on an uncharted island run by 
                 a terrorist group called the Red Bamboo.
    
                 They also realize that a large sea monster, a giant lobster 
                 called Ebirah, lurks offshore and destroys anything that tries 
                 to leave the island unless it is repelled by a special liquid.
    
                 But they also find that Godzilla is sleeping on the island and 
                 decide that the only way to defeat Ebirah is to wake it up. 
                 Mothra also makes a guest appearance for good measure.
    
      >>Son of Godzilla
        ***************
          Year: 1967
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: No
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Since King Kong was given a son many years prior it would make 
                 sense to do the same with Godzilla. Scientists on a remote 
                 island are trying to create a system to control weather but are 
                 thwarted by mysterious waves coming from another part of the 
                 island.
    
                 The waves come from a large egg that would be exposed by giant 
                 mantises that got big because of the malfunction in the system. 
                 The egg hatches to reveal a baby Godzilla which is named 
                 Minilla.
    
                 After Godzilla shows up to destroy the mantises then it adopts 
                 Minilla and teaches it the way of the Kaiju. Eventually a large 
                 spider, called Kumonga, is awakened and the lives of everybody 
                 on the island are threatened.
    
      >>Destroy All Monsters
        ********************
          Year: 1968
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: All of the known Kaiju have been gathered up and placed on a 
                 single island under the watch of the United Nations. But the 
                 facility is hijacked by powerful aliens and the monsters are 
                 unleashed on most of the major world cities. Now the Earthlings 
                 must find a way to defeat these aliens and get the Kaiju back 
                 under control before humanity is doomed.
    
      >>All Monsters Attack
        *******************
          AKA: Godzilla's Revenge
          Year: 1969
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: No
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This entry is unusual in that it is mainly a children's film. 
                 The film follows the adventures of a latchkey kid who is dealing 
                 with bullies. To escape his problems he dreams himself on 
                 Monster Island alongside his friend, Minilla.
    
                 Minilla is also having troubles with his own bully and the two 
                 conspire to deal with it. These trips give the kid lessons that 
                 he applies when he encounters bank robbers back in the real 
                 world.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. Hedorah
        ********************
          AKA: Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster
          Year: 1971
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Pollution from mankind creates a noxious monster called Hedorah. 
                 This Kaiju lives off of smokestacks and various other poisons in 
                 the environment. When it flies it also releases a corrosive gas 
                 that dissolves everything in its path. Godzilla eventually 
                 arrives to deal with this threat and finds it to be a real 
                 handful.
    
                 This film is one of the most unusual entires because of its 
                 "hippieness" that is marked by its heavy-handed message about 
                 the environment and several small animated segments that break 
                 up the action.
    
                 This film also introduces the viewer to the "Jet Breath" that is 
                 used in the game.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. Gigan
        ******************
          Year: 1972
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: A cartoonist is brought in by a children's park to do some work 
                 for them and stumbles onto a dangerous secret: the owners are 
                 space aliens that intend to eliminate mankind. They bring in 
                 their own Kaiju, Gigan, and King Ghidorah to put their plans 
                 into motion.
    
                 However, they also attract the attention of Godzilla and his 
                 friend Anguirus who leave Monster Island to confront the space 
                 monsters. Another favorite of mine from this era.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. Megalon
        ********************
          Year: 1973
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This is generally regarded as the worst G-Film by many fans but 
                 introduces a couple of new Kaiju, Megalon, and Jet-Jaguar, a 
                 cult favorite amongst fans.
    
                 What's interesting about this film is that it was never supposed 
                 to be a Godzilla film - it was supposed to be about Jet-Jaguar. 
                 But Toho Studios didn't think that the character could carry the 
                 film on its own so both Godzilla and Gigan were shoehorned into 
                 the story.
    
                 Interestingly enough this was my very first G-Film which I first 
                 watched in 1977 and started my path to G-Fandom which continues 
                 to this day.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla
        **************************
          AKA: Godzilla vs. the Cosmic Monster
          Year: 1974
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: No
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Toho Studios rebounded from the awfulness of Megalon with this 
                 classic which is my personal favorite of the Showa series. In it 
                 you have a giant robot, an ancient prophecy, and aliens that 
                 look like characters from The Planet of the Apes (which makes 
                 sense because of the popularity of that movie series back in the 
                 US during this time period). A must for any G-Fan.
    
      >>Terror of MechaGodzilla
        ***********************
          Year: 1975
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: No
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: MechaGodzilla and its alien handlers are back for more mischief 
                 and are aided by an angry scientist and a Kaiju called 
                 Titanosaurus. This leads to a two-on-one against Godzilla when 
                 it comes to do battle.

    After Terror of MechaGodzilla Toho Studios decided to retire Godzilla. This
    was because of low ticket sales brought about by uneven film quality,
    campiness, and a general fatigue of the character. However, as the eighties
    started, Toho was bouncing some ideas to bring G back. Despite some
    resistance from within the studio they went ahead with their plans in 1984,
    nine years after Godzilla was retired.
    
    However, they decided not to do a sequel to Terror of MechaGodzilla but
    instead do a follow-up of the first film essentially rebooting the series.
    Unlike the previous films the entries in the Heisei series would be more
    serious with better stories and special effects. In addition, there would be
    some new Kaiju and those already established would be reinvented for the most
    part.

      >>The Return of Godzilla
        **********************
          Year: 1984
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Godzilla returns after a thirty year hiatus and wreaks havoc on 
                 Japan. Scientists must find a way to deal with it without the 
                 knowledge of the Oxygen Destroyer which destroyed the first one.
    
      >>Godzilla 1985
        *************
          Year: 1985
          DVD: No
          Blu-Ray: No
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This is the Americanized version of The Return of Godzilla 
                 released by New World Pictures. Just like with the original 1954 
                 film this had scenes shot specifically for it with actor Raymond 
                 Burr. In addition to these new scenes the film was also 
                 re-edited in other areas, more specifically in regards to how 
                 the Russians were portrayed.
    
                 Unfortunately, a long standing legal tussle regarding American 
                 film rights means that this is the only G-Film that has not had 
                 a legal DVD or Blu-Ray release even though the Japanese version 
                 is now available. And it looks like this issue won't be settled 
                 anytime soon.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. Biollante
        **********************
          Year: 1989
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: A doctor attempts to keep his dead daughter's soul alive within 
                 some roses by splicing them with Godzilla Cells found from its 
                 attack on Tokyo years earlier. This inadvertently creates a 
                 large creature named Biollante. After G is freed from its 
                 volcanic prison by a terrorist act Biollante does battle with G 
                 in order to protect itself and the land.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah
        **************************
          Year: 1991
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: 23rd century time travelers come to the present day to help rid 
                 Japan of Godzilla by going back in time and transporting it away 
                 from the island it was on before atomic tests could mutate it.
    
                 However, these travelers would leave behind something else that 
                 could be mutated. This new creature would become King Ghidorah 
                 and be under the control of these travelers who want to destroy 
                 Japan to prevent it from becoming a massive superpower in the 
                 23rd century.
    
                 And yet, despite their efforts, Godzilla shows up anyway.
    
                 This title plays fast and loose with time travel concepts and, 
                 if you ignore that (plus some cringeworthy acting from the 
                 American soldiers on the island), then this becomes a fun ride.
    
                 This film also introduces one of my favorite Kaiju: Mecha-King 
                 Ghidorah. This is my personal favorite from the Heisei series.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. Mothra
        *******************
          AKA: Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth
          Year: 1992
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Although King Ghidorah's origin was revamped for this series 
                 Mothra's was not (although it was given new powers which it 
                 displays in both the film and the game). This film also 
                 introduces another new Kaiju: Battra, a "dark Mothra" type 
                 creature. This title also has a good three-way Kaiju battle in 
                 Yokohama.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla
        **************************
          AKA: Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla II
          Year: 1993
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: The remains of Mecha-King Ghidorah are retrieved from the ocean 
                 floor and the technology from it is used to create two machines: 
                 Garuda and MechaGodzilla. While these machines are being built a 
                 giant egg is discovered on a remote island and brought back to 
                 Japan.
    
                 This egg would hatch a smaller version of G and be called 
                 BabyGodzilla. Its hatching would attract Godzilla along with the 
                 egg's original caretaker, Rodan. G-Force decides to use 
                 BabyGodzilla to lure G to MechaGodzilla so they can take the 
                 beast down once and for all (or, at least, try to).
    
      >>Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla
        **************************
          Year: 1994
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Godzilla Cells brought into space by Mothra are sucked into a 
                 black hole and results in another Kaiju, SpaceGodzilla. SG is a 
                 nasty crystalline based lifeform that is very powerful.
    
                 While this is going on, G-Force is finishing up on another 
                 robotic construct, M.O.G.U.E.R.A (Mobile Operation Godzilla 
                 Universal Expert Robot Aero-Type) (and a sneaky way to bring 
                 back a character from another Toho movie, The Mysterians). 
                 Together, both MOGUERA and Godzilla have to team up to defeat 
                 the powerful SpaceGodzilla.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. Destoroyah
        ***********************
          Year: 1995
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: A massive volcanic explosion on the island where both Godzilla 
                 and BabyGodzilla were living on has caused G to begin melting 
                 down. This is evidenced by glowing red patches on G's skin. 
                 BabyGodzilla did manage to escape and has grown into 
                 LittleGodzilla.
    
                 While G-Force frets about what to do about Godzilla, workers in 
                 a construction site accidentally dig up some tiny creatures 
                 that were suspended in soil exposed to the Oxygen Destroyer in 
                 1954. When awakened they begin to grow and cause havoc to the 
                 local area.
    
                 The creatures would later combine into a giant Kaiju named 
                 Destoroyah (the Japanese pronunciation for "destroyer"). G-Force 
                 decides to lure G towards the new monster by using 
                 LittleGodzilla as bait. They hope that the two kill each other 
                 off before G has a complete and catastrophic meltdown that could 
                 destroy the Earth.

    After a short hiatus to make room for the 1998 American version of Godzilla
    Toho Studios decided to continue making additional G-Films. Instead of making
    a sequel to Godzilla vs. Destoroyah they went ahead and rebooted it again. In
    an interesting twist, each film would be set in its own "universe" instead of
    following each other like it was in the Showa and Heisei series.
    
    The only common thread would be the 1954 attack but everything after that
    would be up to the story writers and directors. This would lead to some very
    interesting stories.

      >>Godzilla 2000
        *************
          AKA: Godzilla 2000: Millenium
          Year: 1999
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: A father and daughter team of scientists set up equipment to 
                 track the movements of Godzilla and butt heads with a government 
                 agency tasked to kill the creature. This becomes problematic 
                 since the scientist was once part of this agency.
    
                 In the meantime, a giant alien craft is found on the ocean floor 
                 and is brought to the surface. Once exposed to the sunlight it 
                 becomes active and flies away. The alien craft is home to an 
                 alien life force that wants to take over the planet and 
                 eventually faces off against Godzilla while both the scientist 
                 and the agency try to find out what is going on.
    
      >>Godzilla vs. Megaguirus

          Year: 2000
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: G-Force has come up with a weapon capable of sending Godzilla to 
                 another dimension using a miniature black hole. However, during 
                 a test run, a small flying creature emerges and leaves behind a 
                 giant egg that would be found by a small boy. The boy dumps the 
                 egg in a local sewer and the egg would hatch lots of small 
                 flying creatures.
    
                 One of them becomes a giant dragonfly-like Kaiju named 
                 Megaguirus. Eventually it faces off against Godzilla as G-Force 
                 tries to use the black hole weapon against G.
    
      >>Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack
        *****************************************************************
          AKA: GMK
          Year: 2001
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: As Godzilla returns to Japan a mysterious old man tells a young 
                 TV journalist that it is possessed by the angry spirits of 
                 people killed in previous wars. The spirits are upset that they 
                 and their sacrifices have been forgotten.
    
                 This same journalist also gets caught up with something called 
                 the Guardian Monsters, Kaiju that have protected Japan in the 
                 past. They are Baragon, Mothra, and King Ghidorah (the only time 
                 it has ever been a hero from start to finish). Eventually all of 
                 them come together for a major showdown.
    
                 The unique spiritual element, excellent visual effects, good 
                 soundtrack, and a good story makes this my favorite from the 
                 Millenium series.

          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: The bones of the first Godzilla killed in 1954 are found and 
                 they become the base for a cybernetic construct built to face 
                 the current Godzilla. Named Kiryu it is the most advanced and 
                 powerful of any MechaGodzilla in the G-Universe. After dealing 
                 with some interesting glitches Kiryu and its handlers eventually 
                 face off against G in a massive fight.

        ***********************************************
          AKA: Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.
          Year: 2003
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Breaking with the rules established when the Millenium series 
                 started this film is a sequel to the previous entry. As Kiryu is 
                 being repaired from its battle with Godzilla Mothra appears and 
                 goes to the home of Dr. Shin'ichi Chujo who first met up with it 
                 and the twins back in the fifties.
    
                 The twins, small female fairies who are also Mothra's handlers, 
                 plead with Shin'ichi to return Godzilla's bones to the sea or 
                 Mothra may attack mankind. Kiryu's re-activation brings 
                 Godzilla to land and G-Force has no choice but to send the 
                 cyborg to do battle regardless of Shin'ichi's warnings. Mothra 
                 joins in to create a three-way battle in the heart of Tokyo.
    
      >>Godzilla: Final Wars
        ********************
          Year: 2004
          DVD: Yes
          Blu-Ray: Yes
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This was originally supposed to be the third film in a planned 
                 trilogy featuring Kiryu but Toho wanted to do something special 
                 for G's 50th birthday. The result was a film that is a spiritual 
                 remake of Destroy All Monsters but with a dash of X-Men thrown 
                 in for good measure.
    
                 Aliens come to Earth to help mankind deal with a massive Kaiju 
                 problem but would be revealed to be creatures who need to feed 
                 off of humans to survive. Godzilla is released from its icy 
                 prison that it was placed into at the beginning of the film and 
                 all hell breaks loose since the aliens are controlling all of 
                 the other Kaiju to destroy mankind.
    
                 While this film has some good action it is a major mess. 
                 Compared to the decently constructed stories of the previous 
                 films in this series Final Wars is sloppy and has several scenes 
                 that make you go WTF and scratch your head. Not surprisingly, 
                 this film made the least money of all of the films in the 
                 Millenium series and is considered a flop.

    In 2016 a new Toho Studios Godzilla movie was released called Shin Gojira
    (True Godzilla). The film is co-directed by Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi,
    the men behind the popular Evangelion anime series. Basically this is a
    reimagining of the 1954 film and has no ties to any of the previous series.
    
    And, like the original 1954 film, Shin Godzilla is a statement on the current
    state of affairs. The original film was a statement on nuclear weapons which
    was very fresh on the minds of the Japanese considering the atomic bomb
    attacks nine years previous. Shin Godzilla is a statement on inefficient
    Japanese bureaucracy and their feelings on American relations.
    
    Inspiration for the film was drawn mainly from the 2011 earthquake and
    tsumani that also caused the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Further inspiration
    came from the government's slow response during that crisis. Despite the very
    serious tone of the film it became one of the biggest hits in Japan and is
    one of the most popular Godzilla films in decades. It was also popular in
    America during its limited run (it was even extended due to demand).
    
    As for Godzilla itself, it is the largest of all of incarnations measuring
    over 100 Meters in height when at full growth. It is also the most
    frightening of all of them looking like a mutated burn victim. Although it
    would look like it would be a good candidate for game play it is actually a
    poor choice.
    
    It moves very slow and never uses its arms. It also doesn't react to anything
    unless injured and doesn't have any kind of motives. However, it has some
    incredible special attacks. The down side is that it requires a very long
    recharge (which gives its enemies more than enough time to figure it out).

    Because of the popularity of Godzilla around the world, and especially the
    US, there were attempts to create an non-Japanese version of the popular
    Kaiju. To date there are two films:

      >>The 1998 Version
        ****************
          In the mid-nineties director Jan DeBont, who helmed the successful 
          films Speed and Twister, was initially given the task to bring G to the 
          screen. When Tri-Star Pictures, who secured rights to G, balked at the 
          high cost of the film DeBont left the project.
    
          In came Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin who were riding the success of 
          one of the biggest films of the decade, Independence Day. They would 
          write up the script together and Roland would direct. The film was 
          released for the Memorial Day weekend and was expected to do well and 
          even break the record that was set by The Lost World: Jurassic Park 
          the previous year.
    
          That didn't happen and the film faded quickly as the weeks went on. 
          This was mainly due to a lot of negative feedback, both from critics 
          and fans alike.
    
          The fans were especially upset as this was not the Godzilla they 
          envisioned. G was reduced to being a giant iguana with weak breath 
          powers and wimpy enough to be easily killed. Toho Studios themselves 
          were disappointed in the character leading to one executive even 
          walking out of the premiere.
    
          Yet, despite all of the negativity, the film actually made money 
          worldwide becoming the third most successful film that year.
    
          In the years that have followed, this Godzilla would be renamed Zilla 
          and has been mainly reduced to a punchline including a 
          blink-and-you'll-miss-it "fight" between it and the real Godzilla in 
          Final Wars. Devlin himself has expressed regret on how the script was 
          handled and blames himself for most of the film's failings.
    
      >>The 2014 Version
        ****************
          Another attempt at an American Godzilla started in 2009 as Legendary 
          Studios began talks with Toho to acquire the rights which was announced 
          in 2010. Memories about the 1998 misfire still lingered with fans so 
          better care was taken with this film.
    
          It still took a few years for the script to be finalized including a 
          rewrite by Frank Darabont, the director behind The Shawshank 
          Redemption. The director would be Gareth Edwards who did a low budget 
          Kaiju film called Monsters which impressed the studio enough to trust 
          him with the project.
    
          The cast would include Ken Watanabe, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and multiple 
          Emmy Award winner Bryan Cranston who was finishing up his run in one of 
          best television shows of the decade, Breaking Bad.
    
          As for G himself, he would become a force of nature and anti-hero. New 
          creatures, called MUTOS, were made for the film.
    
          Unlike with the 1998 version the new G was revealed early to the press 
          so the fans could see that this was not going to be a repeat of that 
          fiasco. This G, while different, maintained the original design of 
          Godzillas past which was a relief to the fans.
    
          After much fanfare this new version was released on May 15, 2014. 
          Although it did $90 million on its opening weekend it barely got above 
          $200 million by the time it finished its domestic run. Worldwide it did 
          over $530 million. Although the film faded quickly after the first week 
          it generated far more positive reviews from critics, fans, and Toho 
          than the 1998 version.
    
          However, the film does have some major criticisms. One, it teased the 
          title character one too many times that led to frustration from some 
          fans. Two, despite the script, some of the acting was a bit bland, 
          especially from Aaron Taylor-Johnson. And three, the film kind of 
          wasted the talents of Bryan Cranston although he did a good job with 
          what screen time he had.
    
          As of this writing, plans for a sequel are in motion with a possible 
          2018 release date. Although Legendary also has rights for Mothra, 
          Rodan, and King Ghidorah there is no indication that any of them will 
          be in the sequel.

    Over the years Godzilla has made its mark on a multitude of different media.
    Games were no different. G has been a part of gaming since the early eighties
    and has starred in a lot of titles. However, I will only go over those that I
    own in one form or another.

      >>The Movie Monster Game
        **********************
          Year: 1986
          Developer: Epyx
          Platforms: Commodore 64, Apple II
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This is a neat little game that featured multiple monsters 
                 including G. Basically you chose a monster, city, and scenario 
                 to play out. Everything is set on a movie screen and you play 
                 through to see what ending and score you get.
    
                 It would be cool to do a remake of this title with original 
                 Kaiju and expand on the different tropes of the genre. Another 
                 idea is to do something along the lines of the Original Xbox 
                 game Kung Fu Chaos where you can have different monsters fight 
                 it out on movie sets to determine the next big Kaiju star.
    
      >>Super Godzilla
        **************
          Year: 1993
          Developer: Advance Communication Company
          Publisher: Toho
          Platform: Super Nintendo
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This title could be called a strategic fighting game where you 
                 first go along a map to pick up different power-ups then fight a 
                 boss which is another Kaiju. You have to hit it with your fist 
                 at the right moment then quickly choose a more powerful followup 
                 attack. There are several different Kaiju you have to fight as 
                 you go through the story which involves an alien attack.
    
                 The main end boss is called Bagan which was actually supposed to 
                 be an opponent for G in the movie The Return of Godzilla. The 
                 idea for Bagan was scrapped but brought back for this game. 
                 Given its size and power I think it would've been a good 
                 inclusion in the PS3 and PS4 games.
    
      >>Godzilla
        ********
          Year: 1993
          Developer: Banpresto
          Platform: Arcade
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This is an obscure fighting style arcade game that was an 
                 attempt to piggyback on the massive success of Street Fighter II 
                 which was the king of the arcades at that time.
    
                 I have had the ROMS for some time but have not been able to make 
                 them work within MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator). But, 
                 thanks to YouTube, I was able to finally see what the game is 
                 about. It is an interesting take on things but I will need to 
                 find out which version of MAME it runs under before I can try it 
                 out for myself.
    
      >>Godzilla: Rettoushinkan
        ***********************
          AKA: Godzilla: Archipelago Shock
          Year: 1995
          Developer: Sega
          Publisher: Sega
          Platform: Sega Saturn (Import)
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This is probably one of the most interesting G-Games out there. 
                 You don't play as any of the Kaiju. Instead you play as the 
                 military in a Real Time Strategy game where you use your 
                 resources to defeat and drive away the Kaiju.
    
                 Given the success of RTS games over the years (and especially 
                 Command & Conquer) I think this would be a good title to bring 
                 back and reinvent.
    
                 I only messed around with my copy a little bit but gave up 
                 because of the language barrier. Given the success I've had with 
                 dealing with the PS3 game I may go back and give this game 
                 another try but I should install a solid import mod into my 
                 Saturn first.
    
      >>Godzilla Generations
        ********************
          Year: 1998
          Developer: General Entertainment Co., Ltd.
          Publisher: Sega
          Platform: Sega DreamCast (Import)
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This game could be considered the precursor to the PS3 game. In 
                 it you control various monsters and destroy cities but you don't 
                 fight other Kaiju.
    
                 This game got very bad reviews because of poor game design but 
                 the main reason I think it didn't do well is because of the 
                 awful camera system that was implemented. The camera doesn't 
                 follow you around. Instead there are multiple stationary cameras 
                 around the city and you would switch cameras based on your 
                 position as you moved around and destroyed stuff.
    
                 This made it difficult to properly see what you were doing 
                 because 95% of the time you would be either too close, too far, 
                 or have a bad angle. This is the single worst camera scheme I 
                 have ever encountered in any game before or since.
    
      >>Godzilla Generations: Maximum Impact
        ************************************
          Year: 1999
          Developer: General Entertainment Co., Ltd.
          Publisher: Sega
          Platform: Sega DreamCast (Import)
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: Despite the poor sales of the previous game Sega went ahead with 
                 a sequel. What this is is a rail shooter where you use your 
                 Breath to destroy buildings and military craft as Godzilla walks 
                 along on its own. It also has some good boss battles where you 
                 fight the major Kaiju from the Heisei era. Not surprisingly, 
                 this title is way better than its predecessor.
    
      >>Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters Melee
        ************************************
          Year: 2002
          Developer: Pipeworks Software, Inc.
          Publisher: Atari, DreamWorks Classics, Toho
          Platform: Nintendo GameCube, Original Xbox
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: This title would be the first of three games made by Pipeworks 
                 Software involving the G-Universe. This game is basically a 3-D 
                 fighting game that involves most of the Kaiju from Toho Studios. 
                 You can play against other humans or single player.
    
                 As the story goes, an alien force, called the Vortaak, invade 
                 the Earth and gain control of the planet's monsters. You control 
                 the one that escapes from them and you fight the other Kaiju so 
                 you can defeat the aliens.
    
      >>Godzilla: Save the Earth
        ************************
          Year: 2004
          Developer: Pipeworks Software, Inc.
          Publisher: Atari, DreamWorks Classics, Toho
          Platform: PlayStation 2, Original Xbox
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: As with the previous Pipeworks game this is a 3D fighting game 
                 that you can play multiplayer or single player. The Original 
                 Xbox version allowed you to play online multiplayer (which has 
                 since been taken offline). Additional Kaiju were included as 
                 well as better areas to fight in. There is also a Challenge Mode 
                 where there are other things to do while fighting.
    
                 As the story goes, the Vortaak attempt to invade the Earth again 
                 and this time they bring their best weapon, SpaceGodzilla. They 
                 also control most of the other Kaiju that you have to fight in 
                 order to drive off the Vortaak again.
    
      >>Godzilla: Unleashed
        *******************
          Year: 2007
          Developer: Pipeworks Software, Inc.
          Publisher: Atari
          Platform: Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 2
          -----------------------------------------------------------------------
          Notes: As with the previous Pipeworks game this is a 3D fighting game 
                 that you can play multiplayer or single player.
    
                 As the story goes, many years after the events of the previous 
                 game meteors slam into the Earth causing great damage. This also 
                 causes giant crystals to grow and this also causes many of the 
                 planet's monsters to attack cities. The Vortaak, seeing what is 
                 going on, decide to use this opportunity to re-invade the Earth.
    
                 All of this creates several factions which determine how the 
                 story unfolds based on which one you choose to play as.

                \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/
    
    In this chapter I go over some basic information on the seven Japanese
    landmarks featured in the game. This information is paraphrased from their
    respective WikiPedia entries (plus Metro.co.uk):
    
      >>Yokohama Cosmo World Ferris Wheel
        *********************************
          Also known as Cosmo Clock 21 this giant ferris wheel is part of the 
          Cosmo World amusement park in the Minato Mirai 21 district of Yokohama. 
          It was built in 1989 for the YES '89 Yokohama Exposition and was the 
          tallest in the world until the construction of the Tempozan Ferris 
          Wheel in Osaka, Japan in 1997.
    
          In 1997 it was dismantled and in 1999 moved to a higher base to put it 
          at about the same height as Osaka's. This landmark was featured in the 
          movie Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992 - Heisei Series).
    
      >>Yokohama Landmark Tower
        ***********************
          This massive building, finished in 1993, is one of the tallest 
          structures in Japan standing at nearly 1,000 feet in height. Just like 
          with Cosmo Clock 21 it is also located in the Minato Mirai 21 district 
          next to the Yokohama Museum of Art. It has a large five-star hotel that 
          occupies its higher floors with offices, shops, and clinics occupying 
          the lower floors.
    
      >>National Diet Building
        **********************
          Located in Chiyoda, Tokyo this is the building where the National Diet, 
          the Japanese version of Congress, meets. The first version was built in 
          1890 with its current version constructed between 1920 and 1936. This 
          building has been featured in multiple films.
    
      >>Tokyo Tower
        ***********
          This is one of the most recognizable man-made landmarks in the world. 
          Located in the Minato area construction was started in 1957 and 
          finished in 1958. Its main purpose is to serve as a communications and 
          transmission tower but also has a large observation deck for tourists.
    
          A large four story building, called FootTown, sits under the tower. It 
          houses a gallery, restaurants, shops, and the main elevators to the 
          tower's observation deck. This structure has been featured in multiple 
          films.
    
      >>Tokyo City Hall
        ***************
          Located in the Shinjuku area this massive building serves as the center 
          of government of the city of Tokyo and surrounding areas. It stands at 
          nearly 800 feet which makes it stand out from the other buildings 
          nearby. In addition to official offices it also has an observation deck 
          for tourists. This building was featured in the movie Godzilla vs. 
          King Ghidorah (1991 - Heisei Series).
    
      >>The Gracery (Godzilla) Hotel
        ****************************
          In April 2015 a new Godzilla themed hotel was opened in the Shinjuku 
          area of Tokyo. One of its main features is a large Godzilla head which 
          is on one of the lower roofs. The hotel has multiple Godzilla theme 
          rooms and even G themed toilets. The hotel has 970 rooms and is thirty 
          stories high. It is also part of a large entertainment complex that 
          includes theaters and restaurants.
    
      >>Makuhari Messe Convention Center
        ********************************
          Located in Chiba this massive convention center area was opened in 1989 
          and serves as the main exhibition area for nearby Tokyo and surrounding 
          areas. It has over 800,000 square feet of space to use for various 
          events.
