vs. Spacegodzilla (1994)
many of the monsters that appeared in the Godzilla saga, Moguera
originally starred in his own, non-Godzilla movie, The Mysterians.
In The Mysterians, Moguera was a robot used by alien invaders.
The two Mogueras have no connection, and almost bear no resemblence,
except for the distinct snout. Because of this snout, Godzilla
fans nickname Moguera "Woody Woodpecker." The name
Moguera became an acronym when it starred in Godzilla vs.
M.O.G.U.E.R.A. is an acronym
for Mobile Operation Godzilla Universal
Expert Robot Aero-Type. After Godzilla
defeated Mechagodzilla, the United Nations Godzilla Countermeasures
Center (aka "G-Force") built Moguera as another anti-Godzilla
weapon. When G-Force, though, found Spacegodzilla heading for
Earth, Mogera was used to fight him instead. Mogera and Spacegodzilla
engaged in battle in the asteroid belt, with Spacegodzilla gaining
an easy victory. The heavily damaged Moguera headed back to Earth,
and was repaired by G-Force. Mogera then fought alongside Godzilla
to defeat Spacegodzilla. One of the crew memebers named Yuki,
who has a grudge against Godzilla, takes control of Moguera to
try and fight Godzilla. His two crew-members knock him out, and
take back control of Moguera. After a long battle in Fukuoka,
Moguera and Godzilla kill Spacegodzilla. Moguera became heavily
damaged during the battle, and Godzilla destroyed the remains
of Moguera, possibly for revenge for when Yuki used the super-weapon
to attack Godzilla. It is not known whether Japanese taxpayers
were mad or not for after the defeat of the two zillion dollar
superweapons Mechagodzilla and Moguera.
