    Default Who can beat Destroyah

    EDITED

    After watching the movie and reading its specs, Destroyah has the recipe for a Kaiju Killer.

    Destroyah is about to invade your city. Its fully evolved. You can pick one Kaiju to defend it.

    1. Monsters only up to the Heisei Era (Toho Only). Destroyah was the final one of that era. Can any of its predecessors beat it?

    If there are not monsters that can do it, then let's move to scenario #2

    2. Any Kaiju (even outside of Toho) but excluding the Anime: I can think of a few. Legendary Ghidorah and Kaizor Ghidorah come to mind. I thought the comics presented a creative way to kill it. MechaGodzilla's Absolute Zero Weapon being used by Jet Jaguar.

    But if doing rule 1, the mentioned in 2 cannot be used.

    Tricky.

    Does it have to be Toho?

    Ultra Men monsters could wipe him out with impunity and Dai Mahon is waaaay smaller but invincible and magic powers for the win.

    Destoroyah was top heavy in offense and defense. It could also fly, inject micro oxygen into other monsters and even split into its smaller forms when threatened. It was a very imposing enemy.

    Personal opinion? The only other Heisei era creature besides Burning Godzilla that could fight it would maybe be Spacegodzilla.

    SG had the esoterics and versatility to really threaten Godzilla and had it not been for MOGUERA, he likely would have won. SG cannot multitask its abilities well which is why multiple opponents is such a big problem for it. But Destoroyah's multi forms cant fly or shoot particularly powerful beams compared to the final form, so SG doesn't have to worry in the same way it did when multitasking MOGUERA.

    I think if SG sits back and uses its abilities without CIS/PIS then it /might/ manage a slim majority. It can deflect most of Destoroyah's blasts with forcefields. If he keeps it at range, he might barely win a war of attrition. If he let's Destoroyah get close, laser horn is going to be a big problem.

    Yes. SG from Godzilla should be able to do it, his main weakness was his crystal growths and multi tasking, but that’s not a issue if SG fights smart.

    As for other kaiju yet Zeton from Ultra Man should do it. ( He is in time line just different verse.) his offense output actually outdoes Meltdown Godzilla.

    Also Heisei Gamera’s Legion should be a threat. Replace Alien Godzilla clone with gigantic space bug with Magneto powers and yeah, ouch.

    Yeah that was my bad. I should have worded this better. I was wondering if any monsters from option 1 are even capable. (Yes, Toho only)

    If not, lets hear option 2 which brings out more options. (Any Kaiju even outside of Toho)

    The only monster I can even think of from Scenario #1 would be Hedorah. Its a pure acid/pollution monster. Its so potent, that when Godzilla hit it, Godzilla's Right Hand melted only leaving bone. Hedorah's Acid also caused Godzilla's eye to swell shut. It may be able to hold off the Micro-Oxygen and Horn Sword from Destroyah, but I'm not sure it can take Destroyah out completely since Destroyah was able to take several shots from Burning Godzilla's attacks and keep going.

    I forgot about Space Godzilla's Force Fields though. He also appeared to be one of the more intelligent Kaiju. He was tactical in using his crystal attacks. Still, not sure he's able to pull it off seeing how Destroyah was able to withstand such strong attacks from Burning Godzilla.

    Where does everyone stand on Legendary Ghidorah having imunity to Deatroyah's oxygen Destoryer based weapons? He was immune in his own movie to that version.

    As for competition, prior to its own debut I think it beats most. It would slaughter scores of Showa era monsters, perhaps the entire roster. I agree with Arby on Space having a chance if he stayed back and played smart but even then I'd give Destroyah the majority.

    For real. Legendary Oxygen Destroyer maybe completely different from Toho version.

    Ghidorah is an alien dragon. Its composition could be different from the organics from Earth Creatures so I didn't have too much of a problem that it only affected Godzilla.

    @The chou lives. Updated the scenarios since they weren't clear at first

    1: Space Godzilla.

    2: High End Ultra Man monsters win, Legion I feel can do it ( Organics are more exotic than even Legendary Ghidorah if going that routine.) Dai Majin with enough time, and so forth.

    From the Tohoverse, I'd go with Spacegodzilla as well as Kiryu(Mechagodzilla III) if its Akane flying, the both of them are synced up, and the Absolute Zero is in play. One hit from that before Destoroyah can separate, and its game over.

    Outside of Toho, plenty of the Ultra Kaiju can do it. The ones like King Joe Black that are totally mechanical should be immune to the Oxygen Destroyer, and others like the mass production Darklops, Destoroyah might as well be fighting an Ultra.

    Dark Beast Ganon (Breath of the Wild), due to its practical invulnerability (not even Light Arrows nor Ancient Arrows can hurt it, outside of specific weak points).

    I don't know much about Breath of the Wild but nothing I've seen of from that franchise should even touch Destroyah

    At best Dark Beast is used to scratch an itch on Destroyah's buttcheek.
    Yeah, but if you... man, we're getting into weird analogy territory, like if you disintegrated Superman's arms he wouldn't be able to go "fool! Little did you know that my arms and I are one and can be remade from me!" and will his arms back into being from pure nothingness. - Pendaran

    -Scenario 1-

    There are very few Toho monsters strong enough to defeat Destoroyah, let alone cleanse it from the face of the Earth. I have a few prospects in mind; however, I have doubts as to whether or not they're capable of doing the latter.

    SpaceGodzilla: Arguably the most powerful Heisei monster Godzilla faced, Godzilla's cosmic clone is a force to be reckoned with. It'd take an obnoxiously long time for SpaceGodzilla to destroy Destoroyah; Destoroyah has what it takes to finish SG much sooner. It's a great fight and SG has what it takes to drive Destoroyah away from the city in question, so that in itself is a victory.

    MechaGodzilla (Showa): Firepower galore. Might be enough to force Destoroyah to retreat if it keeps getting blown to bits every time it reforms. MG can't afford to fight in CQC or take many hits.

    MechaGodzilla (Heisei): Basically the same as above.

    Hedorah: Now this is an apocalyptic fight. I guess Hedorah fails in saving the city, since his mere toxic presence is responsible for turning it into a ghost town. Hedorah and Destoroyah have a lot in common, and while I think Destoroyah ultimately prevails in a generic one-on-one fight, Hedorah is scary enough to become a global threat if left unchecked.


    -Scenario 2-

    Barugon: Yep. Gamera kaiju > one of Godzilla's most powerful adversaries. Who is Barugon? What is Barugon? Why is Barugon?! Destoroyah's unique weakness to cold temperatures would be exploited by Barugon's Freezing Mist.

    Ha ha! Good o e yeah Barugon smart for a kaiju and ice breath!

    As for Legion: It took a huge chunk of Earth forceto kill it via mana beam, has swarm trick, is silicone based ( oxygen destroyer power affects carbon based life forms via violent oxygen discharge.) and kick ass magnetism powers.

    Yeah Gamera himself is met to be a under dog but 3 of his foes I think are pretty potent. ( airy sis is no joke either, sadly needs melee, going to lose in this case.)
