Godzilla Suit History: 1995

Godzilla 1995

In 1995, Toho decided that they wanted to kill off their famous hero for good. Toho, in 1995, launched its "final" Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. For this movie, Toho created a very special suit for Godzilla's death. In the beginning of the movie, Godzilla absorbs too much radioactivity and is slowly melting. Godzilla's eyes are red, burning orange spots glow, and steam rapidally rises, clearly showing his slow, agonizing death.

On the front of the poster for Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, Godzilla is shown in his suffering ,with the quote "Godzilla dies" labeled in front of him. Whoever walked into the movie theater at that time knew that this would be the final Godzilla movie forever. In the movie, Godzilla, along with death waiting for him, comes his original foe: the Oxygen Destroyer, in monster form. In the end of the movie, after destroyer is destroyed (no pun intended), Godzilla melts. Godzilla is gone forever.

In 1998, TriStar launched its own remake of Godzilla, but it had miserably failed (as you can all recall). Japanese fans demmanded Toho to give them their Godzilla back. In 1999, Toho created Godzilla 2000: Millennium. Godzilla has been born again.
