Godzilla (1954) is the first Godzilla to appear in the movie series. He later appears as Kiryu.


Like other Godzillas, he got mutated by the atomic bomb in the Bikini atroll. He when attacks Tokyo and not 300 000 volts and tanks didin't have an effect on him. Godzilla when leaves the burning city. Dr Serizawa then was forced to use the oxygen Destroyer to kill the monster and sacrifices himself. The Oxygen Destroyer only leaving the skeleton of the monster. Many years later the military uses the bones to make the cyborg Kiryu.


As the first Godzilla, he have an head and arms and legs of an T-rex, body of an Iguanodon, Plates of an Stegosaurus, only more spikey and skin and tail from an crocodile. As Kiryu he is the only MechaGodzilla to have an moveable tail because he has the bones from the first Godzilla. When he hears the present Godzilla's roar, his eyes becomes red and he goes on an rampage.
