In Godzilla: Awakening, Godzilla is referred to as a \\"MUTO\\" due to him not having a name at the time.Godzilla originally gained his true name from the Pacific islanders, who refer to him as \\"Gojira\\". Ishiro Serizawa also refers to him as \\"Gojira\\", prior to \\"Godzilla\\" being formally used. With that said, most of the English-speaking characters eventually start to call him \\"Godzilla\\" over the course of the film's events.Michael Dougherty later revealed that the name \\"Godzilla\\" is not the primar...
For Godzilla's return, it was decided to give the King of the Monsters a newly revamped look. Thus, he was given a new design that didn't look radically different from the established Godzilla designs like the TriStar Godzilla design from the 1998 film did, but like the TriStar design, it was intended to have a more realistic approach. Just like the 2007 Godzilla design, this design is completely computer generated. Lead creature and concept designer Matt Allsopp, and WETA Workshop creature d...

As the planet cooled and its natural atmospheric radiation began to decrease, he adapted to survive various extinction events by diving deep into the ocean and consuming the planet's natural g...
Following the destruction of San Francisco in 2014, Godzilla was tracked by Monarch. Godzilla swam through the Pacific Ocean, passing Skull Island in the process. He eventually disappeared for some time into the Mariana Trench before resurfacing, and headed down south where he arrived at the Antarctic, near Outpost 32, where Ghidorah was contained in ice, and being monitored by Monarch.
Godzilla possesses gills and amphibious lungs so he can stay underwater indefinitely, but he closes his gills when he's on land so he can use his lungs. These gills appear to be his weak points, as Godzilla reacts aggressively whenever he is struck in the gills by artillery fire or strikes from the MUTOs' claws.
