Mechagodzilla is the main antagonist of the 1974 Japanese kaiju film Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla and several sequels.
The first Mechagodzilla was a creation of an alien race that attempted to invade Earth. The second and third Mechagodzillas were human creations.
Mechagodzilla is a large robotic theropod dinosaur with an upright posture. It has large yellow eyes, a row of spines down its back, a tail that abruptly ends rather than tapers to a point, and large red discs on its cheeks.
The second Mechagodzilla is much sleeker than the first, with smoother, more rounded shapes, a disc on its navel, and a smaller head. The third Mechagodzilla is much bulkier and more angled. It has large laser cannons on its shoulders.
