Godzilla is a giant dinosaur-like fictional monster who first appeared in movies from Japan, in the year 1954. Since then has been featured in thirty-three movies. During his movie career, this large reptile fought against many other mythical monsters, including the giant moth-like Mothra, the three-headed King Ghidorah, his own robotic mirror image Mechagodzilla, and several more enemies. The original Japanese name, Gojira orゴジラ, is a combination of the words gorilla and kujira (means whale). In countries where the primary language is English, the name has been changed to Godzilla.
