Godzilla is a giant dinosaur-like fictional monster who first appeared in movies from Japan, starting in 1954. Since then has featured in twenty-nine movies. During his movie career, this large reptile fought against several 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,which is drawn as as object of fear brought about by human beings or the nuclear undesirable result, is a combination of the words gorilla and kujira (means whale). The name was later changed for America to Godzilla, and the name has stuck.
