I’ve loved Godzilla since I was 7 years old, I legitimately remember asking my mom if she believed in Godzilla— like as if he actually existed, hiding somewhere out in the ocean, and bless that woman she said “yes” just to keep my imagination flaring. I always knew Santa was mom. But Godzilla was some real shit goddamnit and I knew it.
So anyway Im about to be 25 now, and Godzilla still to this day has me in awe. I love giant monsters and battles. coolest shit ever. so naturally, going into monster hunter I’ve more than once wished that capcom would team up with TOHO and put in a special event quest or something where u can actually hunt Godzilla. (AND THEN CALL THE QUEST ”KING OF THE MONSTERS” :D) Much the same way they did special quests in japan where u could get Attack on Titan armor and look just like mikasa and eren, but u had to hunt a giant giant giant duramboros.
Did alot of Black Gravios hunts today for everyone’s urgent quests, and it just reminded me so much of Godzilla with its color, fire beam and general size and slowness.
ANYWAYS. I did a thing. I wish it was real. Hope yall like it. Happy hunting everyone.
Box office data for the Heisei and Millennium Godzilla movies is taken from Toho Kingdom. They did not have data for the budgets of Godzilla vs. Mothra and Tokyo SOS. Data from the final graph is from Box Office Mojo.
Toho box office data refers to Japan only; for the American movies, it refers to worldwide returns.
So this was a concept that recently poped into my head: Mothrites.
Essentially a male Mothra, a Mothrite is MUCH smaller (small hawk sized) and is only native to Infant Island and behaves much like a common moth.
Mothrites are born from unfertilized eggs Mothra sprinkles upon her territory. There are usually millions of Mothrites born each century who, in there larval state, feed greedily on vegetation while they sustain the hungry inhabitants who prey on them.
Only a few hundred survive to adulthood. The grown Mothrites will attempt to fulfill their only purpose, to fertilize Mothra. These remaining males will all die in a difficult attempt to mate with the giant, either from predators, each other, or from exhaustion.
If all goes well, she will lay a plentiful batch of fertilized eggs, and spread a new batch of males across the island.
Unfortunately the Mothrites have been poorly affected by the modern nuclear age, many with crippling deformities and infertility. Thus the only offspring Mothra has produced have been clones in recent years, and only two at a time.
