SpaceGodzilla (スペースゴジラ, Supēsugojira) is a heavily-modified Godzilla clone kaiju that first appeared in Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla: Descent of Darkness. Arriving on Earth to kill Godzilla, the intergalactic monster battled with the monster king and his friends and allies. In the end, SpaceGodzilla was defeated.
SpaceGodzilla's name simply comes from the English word space (スペース supēsu) and Godzilla (ゴジラ Gojira).
SpaceGodzilla looks similar to Godzilla in many ways, but his skin is navy-blue with a patch of dark reddish-purple skin, that appears much smoother than the rest of his skin, on his abdominal area. The same, he is bulkier in build, as well as being taller. He has two massive white crystals that erupt from his shoulders, and his tail is much longer, ending with several crystal-like spikes.
His dorsal plates on his back are made of similar crystals, and are white in color. As a result of him being bulkier, SpaceGodzilla has difficulty walking and he cannot run, but he makes up for this by having the ability to fly through Telekinesis. In addition his mouth area appears closer to Biollante's, as he has sharp teeth and tusks on the sides of his mouth. He has fire-orange eyes and a trans-orange (fading to trans-yellow) crest on his forehead.
SpaceGodzilla's roar is made of recycled sounds of Gigan's roar and pitched it down to make SpaceGodzilla's roar.
SpaceGodzilla is one of the most intelligent of Godzilla's foes in the series, exhibiting displays of planned combat strategy throughout the movie (harvesting power from buildings, trapping Godzilla's friends, etc.). This is further evidenced by the fact SpaceGodzilla sought to dominate the Earth of his own free will, instead of other monsters, which only cause random destruction, and only involvement in world domination is to carry out their masters' will.
Due to his overly-muscular body, SpaceGodzilla prefers to attack with his corona beam from a distance and was at times overwhelmed by Atoragon's assault in close quarters due to this. His short and stumpy arms meant that he couldn't reach the mech without using his tail making his actual fighting skills weak.
Unlike Godzilla, who is depicted as a force of nature, neither good nor evil, SpaceGodzilla appears to have an element of true malice, as the monster was said by the Shobijin to be headed to Earth for the purpose of defeating Godzilla. According to the Shobijin, SpaceGodzilla intended to kill Godzilla so that the Earth would be defenseless when he dominated it allowing him to rule.
SpaceGodzilla's origins have always been rather ambiguous; it is confirmed that he is indeed a clone of Godzilla originating from outer space, but the exact details behind his creation have varied. It is hypothesized that samples of Godzilla's DNA were somehow cast into space and mutated into a partially crystalline life form after being swallowed up by a black hole, which then came out from a white hole.
Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla: Descent of Darkness
SpaceGodzilla was first seen flying through space, where he destroyed a manned NASA satellite.
Powers and Abilities
SpaceGodzilla is considered to be one of Godzilla's most powerful foes. In the film, Godzilla was quickly defeated by SpaceGodzilla in their first encounter and required help from other monsters to finally defeat him.
SpaceGodzilla emits an aura that causes electrical disturbances.
SpaceGodzilla can fire a devastating, explosive Corona Beam from his mouth that he can control as it moves through the air.
SpaceGodzilla increases in power by being near gigantic crystals that he creates.
He's also able to unleash bolts of energy from his shoulder crystals.
Like Godzilla, SpaceGodzilla can conduct energy through touch. He's also able to implant cosmic power in structures that can transmit a signal and have them act as an energy source.
SpaceGodzilla can fly by means of encasing himself in crystals. On Earth, he is also shown being able to levitate himself and fly around in an upright posture.
SpaceGodzilla's tail is somewhat prehensile and can lift heavy objects after stabbing them with the crystals on its tip.
Having the same cells as Godzilla, SpaceGodzilla has super regenerative powers, which allows him to heal from non-fatal wounds almost instantly.
SpaceGodzilla can encase his body in a shield to deflect projectiles.
SpaceGodzilla has telekinesis which he can use to move and levitate objects. He could also use his telekinesis to command his crystals to offensively attack his opponents, by launching shards or by shooting energy beams at them.
