King Caesar was first seen attacking Okinawa, until he was teleported away by the [[Xiliens]]. Once the trust between the aliens and humans was broken, King Caesar was released once again. He fought the newly released [[Godzilla]] with [[Anguirus]] and [[Rodan]], but he did not manage to beat him. He was thrown into a pile with the other two, and knocked unconscious. His fate remains unknown.

==Abilities==
 
[[File:King Caesar White Lightning Attack.png|thumb|200px|right|King Caesar firing his beam]]King Caesar possesses formidable speed, strength and agility, enabling him to use various martial arts techniques, making him a formidable foe in close combat. He is rock-solid, able to withstand a horrible beating before going down. It is possible that King Caesar is a golem-like monster, as his body seems to be made of rock with gems for his eyes and on his forehead. His most notable ability, however, is his ability to draw the energy beams of enemy monsters into his eyes, and fire it back at the target. He used this twice with great effectiveness against [[MechaGodzilla 1|MechaGodzilla]] before the cyborg wisely changed tactics and used his missiles instead. However, this special ability of his is not shown in [[Godzilla: Final Wars]] for no energy weapons were used against him. In video games such as [[Godzilla: Unleashed]], the Okinawan deity monster has the ability to transform raw solar energy into searing beams of heat from his eyes.

Following the invasion of the [[Trilopod]]s, the [[Shobijin]] revealed that King Caesar was resting in [[Okinawa]], and that he needed to be awakened to save the Earth. Lucy and her team accompanied the Shobijin to Okinawa, where they found King Caesar resting inside a mountain. Suddenly, the group was attacked by [[Battra]], prompting King Caesar to awaken and battle him. When a group of Trilopods arrived, Battra retreated and left King Caesar to battle them. King Caesar managed to kill several Trilopods, but then allowed himself to be captured and taken to their hive in Los Angeles. Once inside the hive, King Caesar freed all of the various monsters that had been captured by the Trilopods. He then led the other monsters into battle alongside [[Godzilla]] against the Trilopods, killing the Kamacuras and Rodan Trilopod clones. King Caesar also tried to battle [[Magita]], a gigantic Trilopod, but his attacks did nothing against the creature. After Godzilla destroyed Magita, King Caesar and the other monsters followed him out to sea.

Last appearance

Godzilla: Final Wars

King Caesar (キングシーサー,   Kingu Shīsā?) is an ancient shisa kaiju created by Toho that first appeared in the 1974 Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla.


NameEdit

King Caesar's Japanese name, "Kingu Shīsā," is a reference to the shisa, the Okinawan mythological creature on which the kaiju is based.

Toho's initial English name for the character was "King Seeser," as seen in early promotional materials for Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla. The current name, "King Caesar," has been in use since the 1990s.[3]

AppearanceEdit

King Caesar's appearance was inspired by the shisa, a beast resembling a combination of a dog and a lion.

RoarEdit

King Caesar's roars were recycled Toho King Kong roars.

HistoryEdit

Showa SeriesEdit

Godzilla vs. MechagodzillaEdit

ShodaiShisa 0

King Caesar in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla

In the Showa series, King Caesar was the guardian of the Azumi family. He could be awakened by fulfilling a prophecy and an ancient song.

King Caesar, the ancient guardian of the Azumi family, was sleeping in a mountain, waiting to be awoken. The Black Hole Planet 3 Aliens heard of this monster, and sent their own to destroy it. As Mechagodzilla raced to destroy him, the ancient song was sung. King Caesar erupted from the mountain and took on Mechagodzilla. King Caesar fought the best he could, but he was overwhelmed by Mechagodzilla's power.

Godzilla arrived to stop the robot, but soon both were nearly defeated. Godzilla used his special power he had obtained from lightning to pull Mechagodzilla into him, and it allowed him to rip off his head. King Caesar then returned to his cave and collapsing the entrance, burying him to peacefully sleep and heal his wounds.

King Caesar in Godzilla: Final Wars

In the Millennium series, King Caesar was one of the many controlled monsters of the Xiliens. He appears in Okinawa, an island part of the Kyushu archipelago in Japan.

King Caesar was first seen attacking Okinawa, until he was teleported away by the Xiliens. Once the trust between the aliens and humans was broken, King Caesar was released once again. Alongside Rodan and Anguirus, King Caesar was one of the final monsters controlled by the Xiliens to confront Godzilla as he neared Tokyo.

Transported to the Japanese countryside with his allies by the Xilien UFOs α, ß and γ, King Caesar proved to be an agile and intelligent opponent. He was eventually thrown by Godzilla into his two allies, leaving them all unconscious. His fate was ultimately left unknown.

AbilitiesEdit

Energy deflection and reflectionEdit

His most notable ability, however, is his ability to draw the energy beams of enemy monsters into his eyes, and fire it back at the target. He used this twice with great effectiveness against Mechagodzilla before the cyborg wisely changed tactics and used his missiles instead. However, this special ability of his is not shown in Godzilla: Final Wars for no energy weapons were used against him.

Heat beamsEdit

In video games such as Godzilla: Unleashed, the Okinawan deity monster has the ability to transform raw solar energy into searing beams of heat from his eyes.

Lightning beamEdit

In the Godzilla Island episode "All-Out Monster Attack", King Caesar can fire a white lightning beam from his mouth.

Video gamesEdit

Godzilla: UnleashedEdit

King Caesar is a mystical defender of the Earth. Unlike the other Earth Defenders, King Caesar is specifically concerned with the well-being of humanity, and will respond to events that threaten human beings. King Caesar's strongest asset are his powerful legs, which have tremendous strength and flexibility.

King Caesar's entire body is a capacitor, storing and refocusing the sun's energy into searing beams of heat, which he projects from his eyes. In battle, King Caesar can absorb the energy from his opponent's weapons, which both protects him from ranged attacks and provides him the power necessary to engage fast-moving opponents at range.

His internal batteries are not unlimited in their capacity, and there is a possibility of overload should King Caesar absorb too much energy without quickly discharging it.

King Caesar appears in the video game Godzilla: Unleashed as a playable character, sporting a look with similarities to both era designs. He is able to fire solar heat beams from his eyes.

Godzilla (2014 video game)Edit

Guardian deity of the ancient Ryukyuan royal family, the Azumi clan, King Caesar is a ferocious monster whose forte is nimble hand-to-hand combat. It is able to absorb an enemy's energy beams with its right eye, and it can both amplify and redirect them using his left eye's special "Prism Eye" ability. It was awoken from its slumber within Manzamo Cliff in Okinawa by the "Song of Miyarabi", later joining Godzilla to confront the Black Hole Planet 3 Aliens who established an invasion base in Okinawa.

In "Godzilla: Final Wars" (2004), King Caesar was controlled by the invading Xiliens, ultimately destroying Okinawa. It pounced on Godzilla using pro-wrestling melee techniques such as tackles and flying scissor kicks.

It appeared as a guest monster tie-in for Expo '75 in Okinawa. King Caesar is modeled after the traditional Okinawan "Shisa," a lion-dog statuette used to ward off evil spirits.

ComicsEdit

Godzilla: Rulers of EarthEdit

King Caesar appears in issue #9 of Godzilla: Rulers of Earth. The guardian monster was seen primarily in a flash back, fighting against Megalon across Okinawa, the city he was meant to protect. Due to the fight, countless humans died, thus enraging King Caesar to the point of no return. To make matters worse, as the monsters fought, two more elemental monsters, Varan and Ebirah, arrived. The fight was interrupted when an alien war ship crashed and sent King Caesar and Megalon under ground. He later appears in a vision of Lucy in issue 17 alongside Godzilla and the Mothra Larvae, fighting the Cryogs.

Following the invasion of the Trilopods, the Shobijin revealed that King Caesar was resting in Okinawa, and that he needed to be awakened to save the Earth. Lucy and her team accompanied the Shobijin to Okinawa, where they found King Caesar resting inside a mountain. Suddenly, the group was attacked by Battra, prompting King Caesar to awaken and battle him. When a group of Trilopods arrived, Battra retreated and left King Caesar to battle them. King Caesar managed to kill several Trilopods, but then allowed himself to be captured and taken to their hive in Los Angeles. Once inside the hive, King Caesar freed all of the various monsters that had been captured by the Trilopods. He then led the other monsters into battle alongside Godzilla against the Trilopods, killing the Kamacuras and Rodan Trilopod clones. King Caesar also tried to battle Magita, a gigantic Trilopod, but his attacks did nothing against the creature. After Godzilla destroyed Magita, King Caesar and the other monsters followed him out to sea.

Godzilla: OblivionEdit

King Caesar appeared at the end of the fourth issue of Godzilla: Oblivion, as he emerged from an interdimensional portal along with Mothra, Rodan, Anguirus, Biollante and Zilla while Godzilla was battling Mecha-King Ghidorah (Hedorah joined them in the next issue). While he did join the fight with the other monsters, at first, he was then seen sitting on a throne made out of flaming buildings. Later, after Mecha-King Ghidorah was defeated by Godzilla, all of the monsters were left behind as the humans left the Earth as it became covered by tiny robotic cells that served as interdimensional doorways.

  • King Caesar was the last monster to be Godzilla's ally in the Showa series.
  • King Caesar is the savior of Okinawa, but ironically, in Godzilla: Final Wars, he attacked the city he protected for generations.
