The Heisei Mechagodzilla (メカゴジラ Mekagojira), also known as Super Mechagodzilla (スーパーメカゴジラ Sūpā Mekagojira), is a mecha created by Toho that first appeared in the 1993 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla 2.
Mechagodzilla was created by the United Nations Godzilla Countermeasures Center and controlled by its military branch G-Force, using Futurian technology scavenged from the remains of Mecha-King Ghidorah.
The mech would first see action when Godzilla appeared in Japan and began heading to the city of Kyoto. Initially, it had an advantage against its organic counterpart, but Godzilla released a shockwave of energy which short-circuited Mechagodzilla's systems, rendering it defenseless as Godzilla knocked it over before leaving the scene.
After several weeks of repairs, Mechagodzilla was sent out again, this time to destroy Fire Rodan, who had taken a canister holding Azuza Gojo and an infant Godzillasaurus. Mechagodzilla quickly defeated Fire Rodan, however Godzilla arose from the ocean to challenge the robot again. Mechagodzilla easily overpowered Godzilla once more, and after combining with Garuda, almost killed the Monster King by destroying his second brain. However, while down, Fire Rodan was not quite dead and with the last of his strength revived Godzilla with his own life force. This brought Godzilla back and empowered him with an all new Spiral Fire Ray.
With his new breath weapon, Godzilla turned the tide of battle against Godzilla, the energy radiating from him melting the robot's armor plating and after taking several subsequent atomic blasts, Mechagodzilla was destroyed for good, although its operating team miraculously survived.
