This Godzilla is part of the official Gojira mythos, renamed Zilla in Japan. It appeared in the movie Gojira: Fainaru uôzu (2004), as one of Godzilla's enemies. This decision has caused great confusion among fans and especially laypeople: is Zilla the new name of this movie's monster, or is Zilla merely a parody of it? And is it a separate character from the original Godzilla? Toho studios have stated multiple times that they consider this movie's rendition Godzilla, not a separate monster. Even the official monster icon on the Japanese home media release clearly labels the creature as "Godzilla", not "Zilla". As such, it technically counts as Godzilla. However, Toho have also said that any post-2004 depiction of the monster must be called Zilla instead of Godzilla. Thus, in a way, it can be said that they both are and aren't the same monster.

As opposed to most people, I thought this movie was excellent. You can't watch the movie and expect Shakespeare...it's Godzilla. You have to appreciate the work that went into making this creature look so lifelike. This movie had spectacular special effects and a pretty decent story line. I thought this movie was great. I didn't find the acting to be all that bad. I would recommend watching this movie before you come to any conclusions.
