Godzilla vs. Raikou by arvalis Godzilla vs. Raikou by arvalis
This tattoo commission was too fun to pass up.  How often to do you get to draw Godzilla in a heated battle with a Pokemon?  Is it a giant raikou or a tiny godzilla, personally I'm leaning towards tiny goodzilla.  Could you imagine how dang grumpy a tiny godzilla would be.  He could probably only knock over small trees and lemonade stands, a far cry from city stomping.

Check it out on Tumblr to see an aslternate version with fire and lightning additions.

Photoshop CS5: 6 hours?

a giant Raikou umm is the electric natrual lightning if it is that wil make godzilla stronger (note godzilla hates man mad electricity not natural) and this giant raikou must have powers stronger than red spiral ray infinity ray something that could hurt godzilla ( something a hell of alot stronger than a black hole) and give raikou a super form then a giant raikou might have a chance ( note just because Raikou turned big dosent mean he is more durable or more powerful than before unless its a mutation) godzilla gots this one

Yeah, um... Last time we checked, Godzilla was a 355 foot tall radioactive dinosaur that towers over the Golden Gate Bridge, fires a giant blue laser out of his mouth, has a powerful healing factor, beat the sh*t out a kaiju that was like 4 times bigger than him, took a meteor to the face and got no scratches whatsoever, fell in a volcano and came out unscathed, humans fired a black hole at Big G, he literally just blew it up, not even Destroyah could kill him while in Burning form, Biollante stabbed a huge spear tentacle thing through his hand, and Godzilla just ripped it out like a badass... Lets see... XD Godzilla blew up Orga from the inside while the bastard was still eating him... No human weapon ever has even come close to putting a dent in Godzilla's thick-ass scales... Godzilla is basically a walking nucear bomb... Yeeeaahhh, no. Raiku has no chance. XD

Godzilla lost to King Kong once he was powered up by lightning, Godzilla lost to two baby Mothras who were smarter than him, Godzilla and Rodan were equally matched in a fight that took days, Godzilla was about to be killed by Kumonga until Minilla rescued him, Godzilla was going to be killed by Hedorah until the military created a machine that could kill it, Godzilla was almost killed by the cockroach aliens' machine until the military destroyed it, Godzilla was nearly killed by Mechagodzilla and only won because of a sudden power that came out of nowhere, Godzilla was outclassed by both Mechagodzilla and Titanosaurus and only survived because the main characters discovered their weaknesses, Godzilla was trapped inside that volcano he fell in until human terrorists freed him, Godzilla was effectively defeated by Biollante before she dissipated, Godzilla was KILLED by Mechagodzilla 2 and needed Rodan to revive him, Godzilla had no way of beating Spacegodzilla without Moguera's help, Godzilla had no way of beating Destoroyah outside of his burning form, Godzilla was defeated by the military's tactic in GMK, Godzilla was effectively defeated by Kiryu drilling into him and leaving him lifeless, GFW Godzilla was about to be killed by Kaiser Ghidorah until the main character pulled a deus ex machina, and Legendary Godzilla got his ass whooped by the combined might of the two Mutos. 

And defeating Orga is hardly noteworthy, because Orga was both physically weak and surprisingly unintelligent. 

Godzilla IS badass, I agree with you. But he is hardly the invincible chuck norris which so many fans think he is. People forget that Godzilla LOST several times, and needed help MANY times or else he would have died. Instead of worshiping him likes he's Jesus Christ 2, I feel like more Godzilla fans should look at Godzilla from an unbiased perspective and realize that he has both strengths and weaknesses, victories and failures.

Raiku may a Legendary Pokemon, but you are kinda underestimating himself ajd Godzilla. Godzilla is a 350 radioactive dinosaur that, while he isn't invincible (he's just extremely durable to the point human weaponry have little to no effect on him), he has a hell of a arsenal that earned him more wins than losses. Your argument is far from stupid and unreasonable, but Kumonga, Mothra, and the Kaiju sized mechas are all Kaiju. They have alot more better chances of defeating Godzilla than a 6 ft electric tiger. Godzilla just has to lift a foot and step on Raikou and the battle's over, lol. But to be fair, Raikou is agile and powerful, he wont go out without a fight.

Oh I'm not saying Raikou will win. There's a big chance of him losing, since even when scaled up to kaiju size, Godzilla has armor and power on his side. But I'm just pointing out that realistically the fight could go either way. Raikou himself has a wide arsenal of powers. Godzilla could win, but he could potentially lose too.

Personally I always thought of Godzilla a freak mutation of a more realistically sized species that perpetuated and eventually grew into today's monster, so I'm all for a small Godzilla.  It could be shrugged off as a pup or young adult of the same species.

Didn't see that movie.  The only movies I've seen are Gojira subtitled (haven't watched the dubbed that everyone jokes about), 1998 Godzilla (doesn't really feel like a true Godzilla movie to me), and the 2014 Godzilla (they went way too far with the "less is more" approach, but it's an awesome Godzilla).

:iconrandomaneer123:
Funny thing about 98 is that the version of Godzilla in it was renamed Zilla and put in the film Godzilla Final Wars in which the real Godzilla destroyed him in seconds.

:iconbrokenstride:
BrokenStride Featured By Owner Edited Dec 6, 2015
Now I know why everyone keeps calling him Zilla.  He was a really cool more fictional animal than bad guy monster kinda thing and I liked the movie, but I really couldn't think of him a Godzilla.  And back then I had never actually seen a real Godzilla movie, but I knew enough to know better.  Edit: Didn't even have the atomic breath.  And the way he/she interacted with that guy reinforced for me the image of it just being a really big animal and not a movie monster.  The only thing it really had going for it was size.

Yeah man Zilla actually is just a giant mutated lizard(s) so I guess that's why it feels that way I could give you my list of Godzilla films to watch if you're interested in seeing more of the franchise.

Don't apologize.
There's literally no preventing this comparison without altering the base concept, viewpoint or style of the picture. which would simply make it a different picture entirely.
I happen to love all 3 ideas, but sadly, it's all my mind jumps to when i see Godzilla.
