Zilla is a kaiju introduced in the 1998 TriStar Pictures film, Godzilla. He is a mutated marine iguana, the result of nuclear testing in the Maruroa Atoll Islands of French Polynesia in 1968.
After growing for a period of 30 years and reaching a height of 60 meters, Zilla left the islands it was born on for the Pacific Ocean. From there, he first made landfall in Panama and crossed through there into the Atlantic Ocean, eventually making his way up to the Eastern Seaboard of the United States where it sank several fishing boats.
Later on, the creature arrived in New York City, wandering through the city and causing major damage. Eventually, it was lured into Flatiron Square with 20,000 pounds of fish. After escaping a military attack, the monster stomped through New York, necessitating the evacuation of the entire city. The monster was later labeled "Godzilla", after the lone survivor of the monster's attack on the Kobayashi Maru identified it as "Gojira". The military battled Zilla extensively, and seemingly killed it in the East River with torpedoes.
However, it had laid 228 eggs in and under Madison Square Garden (an arena in Midtown Manhattan), which hatched and filled the Garden with hundreds of Baby Zillas. The military bombed the Garden, slaying the infant Zillas. However, Zilla then revealed itself to have survived, bursting up from underneath the street, and, after seeing its dead offspring, chased the heroes through New York across the Brooklyn Bridge, where it became entangled in the suspension cables. He was then killed by F-18 Hornets.
