How large is Mechagodzilla?
This has been a persistent question among the fans of Mechagodzilla.
In today’s digital world, even fictional characters are robotic.
While a large number of people are aware of Godzilla, the King of the Monsters, not many know of Mechagodzilla.
However, following the release of the 2022 film, Godzilla vs. Kong, this mechanical titan has been getting more attention.
But the fascination with its size remains.
The fictional character looks enormous in size and height.
Here’s how large this mechanical villain is in 2022.
Mechagodzilla’s Size in 2022
Mechagodzilla originally appeared in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla in 1974.
It is a fictional character that belongs to the mecha genre.
Mecha is a Japanese term that is used to refer to either the genre of science fiction or scientific ideas.
It can also mean both.
In popular culture, Mechagodzilla is typically a villain that fights against Godzilla.
In fact, this character is, in many ways, Godzilla’s robotic doppelganger.
However, it varies in shape, size, and height.
In 2022, the Mechagodzilla is said to be as tall as 466 feet.
Using the scaling method, its height is speculated to be 400 feet.
However, the latter is according to the film’s Japanese release.
When compared to Godzilla, Mechagodzilla looks approximately the same.
However, a closer look suggests differences.
In the 2022 movie, this mechanical villain towers over Godzilla, which points toward greater size.
Mechagodzilla’s Size Over the Years
It may be a surprise to many people that the Mechagodzilla does not have a standard size and shape.
In fact, it varies with film genre, time, and age.
Here’s how various types of Mechagodzilla differ in terms of size and type.
The Showa Mechagodzilla
This type of Mechagodzilla has a height of 160 feet or 50 meters.
In addition to this, the Show Mechagodzilla weighs approximately 40,000 metric tons.
It also has a wide variety of attributes.
Created from ‘space titanium’, this creature can use its fingers, knees, and toes to launch missiles.
But this isn’t it.
In fact, this is only the tip of the iceberg.
The Mechagodzilla can also use its eyes and chest to fire various types of beams.
In true Exorcist fashion, its head can spin 360 degrees.
This means that fighter planes and jets stand no chance against this beast.
Even if they’re circling or hovering around its head, the Showa Mechagodzilla will find ways to throw them off.
In an upgraded version, this mechanical titan was also immune to decapitation.
This was possible because its central computer was situated in an external power source, thus making the Show Mechagodzilla close to invincible.
The Heiser Mechagodzilla
The Heiser Mechagodzilla is another type of Mechagodzilla that weighs 150,000 metric tons while standing at a height of 120 meters or 390 feet.
In addition to this, this giant derives its energy from substances like hydrogen and helium.
The Heiser Mechagodzilla is powered by a nuclear reactor.
Moreover, its entire form is covered with T-1.
While most fans know what T-1 is, many remain in the dark.
T-1 is an armor created from synthetic diamonds.
It covers the Heiser Mechagodzilla, thus making it even more powerful.
This armor makes it significantly challenging for Godzilla to fight against this version of the MechaGodzilla.
This is because its armor allows it to resist Godzilla’s atomic way.
Moreover, it also comes equipped with tools like laser cannons, mega buster rays, missiles, and shock anchors.
The Millenium Mechagodzilla
This type of Mechagodzilla is 200 feet tall or 60 meters in height.
In addition to this, it weighs 40,000 metric tons.
One of the strongest attributes of this creature is that it can be powered and controlled from anywhere.
This means that it responds well to remote piloting.
As a result, it can be one of the most dangerous forms of the Mechagodzilla in the MonsterVerse.
Along with this, it also has the strongest weapons programmed inside its body.
The Millenium Mechagodzilla has access to the twin master cannon along with railguns.
Additionally, it also has drill claws and a master blade that is placed in its hand.
One of the most powerful weapons that this type of Mechagodzilla has is the Absolute Zero Cannon.
This has its place inside the mechanical monster’s chest.
The Anime Trilogy Mechagodzilla
Japanese anime is watched by a large number of people all over the world.
Thus, it’s no surprise that the anime world also has its version of the Mechagodzilla.
This creature stands at 50 meters and weighs almost 30,000 metric tons.
In addition to this, it is powered by artificial intelligence (AI).
The Anime Trilogy Mechagodzilla is created from nanometals.
This makes it both string and significantly powerful.
Its arsenal has a wide variety of tools like gun cannons and EMP Harpoons.
