Gojira is Godzilla's, SpaceGodzilla's, and Biollante's father, the true leader of the L.E.S.B.I.A.N.S., and the main antagonist of Seasons 2 (unseen) and 5. In regards to the majority of villains in the series, Gojira is regarded as one of the most evil. Gojira has a bleak outlook on life in that due to his creation by the atomic bomb, his existence is to be that of a nuclear metaphor. and that wiping out all life on Earth is the only right thing to do, as letting others live would justify the existence of nuclear weapons. Gojira is shown to be very abusive towards his son, Godzilla when he was little, which ultimately became a trait that was passed on to Godzilla by the disdain he shows towards his kids. Gojira is also very condescending towards his family and grandchildren, shown to be very disappointed in Godzilla's kids and instead favors his own for being evil like him. However when a situation is in his favor, Gojira is also shown to be unloving to his own children, as he was willing to let Godzilla, SpaceGodzilla and Biollante die just so his plan of creating a major space-time paradox would destroy all life in the universe.
During the Monster Island War though, Gojira was portrayed in a more sympathetic light, revealing that many of his actions were out of an extreme measure to prevent everyone from being tortured for eternity by the Devil of the Monsters, Cthulhu, whom had granted Gojira invincibility as part of a deal to have him serve in his army when he dies. During which, Gojira managed to catch up with his son and apologized for how horribly he treated him.
Prior events to the series reveal that Gojira was once a very weak dinosaur known as "Godzillasaurus" who would often be attacked by Monsters who were much more stronger than he was. One day after getting attacked by Ebirah, Godzillasaurus was confronted by Cthulhu after the Devil of Monsters overheard his desire to be the Strongest Monster alive. Godzillasaurus thus made a deal with the devil to be invincible, but in exchange, he would become a demon in his army once he died. After striking the deal, Godzillasaurus mutated into Gojira after being struck by an atomic bomb, and he would go on to become King of the Monsters with his newfound invincibility.
During his time as the King, he eventually met a woman (or a female member of his species) and had 3 children, Godzilla, SpaceGodzilla, and Biollante (the latter two of whom were the result of him (sic) humping a space rock and a potted plant, respectively.) What became of SpaceGodzilla and Biollante is unknown, but of his children, Godzilla was the one who lived with Gojira the most, whom Gojira abused thoroughly until he was brought to near death by the Oxygen Destroyer. Thinking his father had been killed by the device, Godzilla was left to live on his own, but Gojira was in fact still alive and was left to regenerate from his near-death experience.
As Gojira was recuperating from his near-death experience from the Oxygen Destroyer, he had a near-death experience in which he realized how horrible it was to serve Cthulhu as part of his army. Out of desperation to "save" everyone from the Devil of Monsters' demonic rule, Gojira organized a group known as the L.E.S.B.I.A.N.S., a Villains-only gathering of evil monsters with the sole purpose of causing a SpaceTime Paradox to destroy all of existence. In order to do that, he ordered Hedorah and Megalon to attack the Godzilla of the past and kidnap him to create the paradox. Unfortunately for Gojira, his plan was thwarted as Past Godzilla was rescued and sent back in time before the paradox could occur. As a backup, Gojira ordered Mecha-King Ghidorah to crash into Monster Island with a bomb attached to it (possibly in an extreme effort to at least save his children.) That plan however was foiled by Rodan after he sacrificed himself to save monster island by colliding with him in mid-air.
After the dissolution of the L.E.S.B.I.A.N.S., Gojira used Destoroyah's involvement in the team as a scapegoat and placed the blame of attempting to kill everyone on him while he began plotting his next plan. After Godzilla died of a Meltdown, Gojira passed himself off as his dead son in order to frame the new King of the Monsters by attacking his friends and causing chaos everywhere he went. Eventually, Godzilla was brought back to life by Lord Blundergosh after defeating him in a game of Beer Pong, where he quickly found out of his father's return and actions to his friends. To which, Gojira offered Godzilla to join him in causing destruction and havoc across Monster Island, dictating that as Monsters created from Nuclear Weapons, it's their birthright to cause destruction, as protecting the earth justifies the usage of Nuclear Weapons.
Gojira also managed to reunite his other two children, SpaceGodzilla and Biollante and together, the family of Monsters set their sights on sabotaging a Party commemorating the Truce between the Ghidorah Family and the Divine Moths (Mothra's race.) However, Godzilla quickly got fed up with his father's sadistic ways (after receiving some advice from his Buddies) and once Gojira found out of Godzilla's planned double-cross, Godzilla and Gojira fought fierce, with Gojira nearly emerging victorious. However, once Lord Blundergosh appeared to retrieve Godzilla (deciding to go back on his deal,) Godzilla fooled the God by tricking him into taking Gojira with him back to the afterlife instead of himself, finally killing Gojira for good. In doing so though, Cthulhu's deal was sealed, and the Devil's plan began to go in motion...
