Godzilla, also known in Japanese as Gojira, is a fictional character and the main kaiju protagonist of the Godzilla franchise, including the movie series, comics, cartoons, and video games, most often serving as an on and off villain.
Godzilla is a famous daikaijū, or a Giant movie monster, who first appeared as the titular primary antagonist of Ishirō Honda's 1954 classic giant monster film, Godzilla. Since then, Godzilla has gone on to become a worldwide pop culture icon starring in over 31 Japanese films produced by Toho Co., Ltd., and two American films; one film released in 1998, produced by TriStar Pictures and featuring Zilla, and another film released in 2014 by Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. with a future trilogy in production. The 1998 version is widely disfavored and is not considered a Godzilla film whilst the 2014 version was generally positively received and is considered to be a Godzilla film.
