Description: Mechagodzilla was designed by the Black Hole Aliens to defeat Godzilla, and came very close to succeeding. This first model utilized remote pilots. Mechagodzilla defeated Anguirus with little trouble, and would have in all likelihood beaten King Caesar if Godzilla had not intervened. By spinning its head, it can generate a force field called defense neo barrier, capable of stopping an atomic ray at close range. Offensive weaponry includes cross attack beam (red current from chest), high pressure homing missiles (three launchers per foot), homyu shot (one missile launcher each knee), mouth missiles (five launchers), space beams (rainbow blast from eyes), and space finger missiles (four launchers per hand).

Description: The Black Hole Aliens try again, rebuilding Mechagodzilla, and this time sending Titanosaurus to help it out. The refit's improvements including revolving finger missiles, which were substantially more powerful than the space finger missiles, and the laser firing apparatus, a little surprise with some big hurting for Godzilla should he remove Mechagodzilla's head again. Also, the controllers were replaced with a cyborg handler. The King of the Monsters was able to trounce them both with the help of hominids and their supersonic wave oscillator, which incapacitated Titanosaurus until Godzilla could defeat the robot.

Description: The Kiryu was built in 2002, and is currently the most powerful mecha on Earth. it can only fight for two hours before it needs a recharge, less if it utilizes the absolute zero cannon mounted in its chest (which consumes 40% of its energy supply with each shot). Equipment includes mouth-mounted twin Type 90 maser cannons, two wrist-mounted dual laser cannons, dual backpack missile launchers, each side with six rockets and eight heat-seeking missiles, and two wrist-mounted electric blades. The backpack can be ejected explosively, usually once the missile supply is exhausted.
